Gen 1:1 In the beginning, God created the universe. Gen 1:26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us.
Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against human opponents, but against rulers, authorities, cosmic powers in the darkness around us, and evil
spiritual forces in the heavenly realm.
Gen 11:7 Come on! Let's go down there and confuse their language, so that they won't understand each other's speech."
Gen 11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the surface of the whole earth, so that they had to stop building the city.
Deu 32:8 When the Most High gave nations as their inheritance, when he separated the human race, he set boundaries for the people according to the
number of the children of God.
Deu 32:9 For the LORD's portion is his people; Jacob is his allotted portion.
Deu 32:10 The LORD found him in a desert land, in a barren, eerie wilderness. He surrounded, cared for, and guarded him as the pupil of his eye.
The creation of the Nations happened well before there was a Jacob . God picked out Abraham from one of the Nations to create a special people for
Himself . The story goes on to tell the battle with God and the gods of the other Nations . Daniel brings this out where Dan 9:21 while I was still
speaking, Gabriel the man of God whom I had seen in the previous vision, appeared to me about the time of the evening offering.
Dan 9:22 He gave instructions, and this is what he spoke to me: 'Daniel, I've now come to give you insight and understanding.
We get a glimpse of what is going on in the unseen realm with this from Daniel Dan 10:11 He told me, 'Daniel, man highly regarded, understand the
message that I'm about to relate to you. Stand up, because I've been sent to you.' When he spoke this statement to me, I stood there trembling.
Dan 10:12 "'Don't be afraid, Daniel," he told me, "because from the first day that you committed yourself to understand and to humble yourself before
your God, your words were heard. I've come in answer to your prayers.
Dan 10:13 However, the prince of the kingdom of Persia opposed me for 21 days. Then—look!—Michael, one of the chief angels, came to assist me. I
had been detained there near the kings of Persia.
Dan 10:14 Now I've come to help you understand what will happen to your people in the days to come, because the vision pertains to those days.'
All of this explains the pantheon of gods . Its is also noted that even dead humans carry a designation in the unseen realm . 1Sa 28:13 The king
told her, "Don't be afraid; but what do you see?" The woman told Saul, "I see a divine being coming up out of the ground."
1Sa 28:14 Saul told her, "What does he look like?" She said, "An old man is coming up, and he's wrapped in a robe." Saul knew that it was Samuel, and
he bowed low to the ground and prostrated himself.
