To the original post at the top about the demon named "Seth".
The truth about demons is that they have no truth in them.
All throughout the Bible, war was raged on the lineage that came from Adam, thru Seth.
When you note that the first son of Eve, was Cain, and Cain murdered his brother, Abel,....the next son that was ordained, was Seth.
Ever since, Satan has waged his deception, in trying to ruin, what he knows will ultimately, come to pass.
I do believe in this airing, that when the demon said he had never been alive, this was true. That is what a demon is. A fallen angel, who followed
Lucifer in his rebellion in heaven....he persuaded 1/3 of the angels to follow him, and in thier awful and wicked state, they became demons.
Angels are angelic beings without bodies. Demons are angelic beings who followed Satan, and they also, do not have bodies.
So we have heavenly angels, in heaven, and we have demons, from the Satanic Realm. There are different levels of ranking in both.
The house in this episode, had prior Satanic rituals. These rituals invited and invoked the demon. Satan cannot be everywhere at once, so this demon
was sent on his mission. In the event, this demon gave his REAL name, he would have been rebuked and sent out much quicker, and this demon knows this.
There is only one way to send a demon back properly. By commanding thru the divine authority of God, and Jesus Christ who was sacrificed for the sins
of mankind, and using the demons name.
"By the authority, of Jesus Christ who shed his blood on the cross, commands you ___________ (demon's name) to leave this house."
Without the demon's name, it is not futile, but very difficult. This is similar to evicting a person out of a home, without a name.
You cannot evict someone legally, without a proper name.
King James Bible
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because
there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Additionally, because a demon's nature is to lie and deceive, they do this to intentionally.
Satan, an angel, became the first sinner (1 John 3:8) and led a rebellion in heaven against God (Revelation 12:7).
In Satan's fall he drew a vast number of angels with him (Rev 12:4,9).
Involved in Warfare:
Satan and his demons now wage war against God's kingdom (Revelation 12:17).
Demonic forces wage war against every one of God's people (Ephesians 6:12). Whether we are aware of it or not, all believers are in spiritual warfare
with demons. The question is not whether we will fight against demons, but rather how well. Demonic struggle is unavoidable for a Christian.
Some believers make the mistaken assumption that if they remain ignorant of the Biblical teaching regarding Satan and demons then Satan and his demons
will "not bother them." But ignorance does not save us from the battle. It just means that when we get wounded we have no idea where the shot came
from or how to avoid it in the future.
THE NATURE OF DEMONS:
The Bible clearly portrays them as personal beings. They have:
intellect (Mark 5:7),
knowledge (Acts 19:15),
emotion (Matthew 9:31; Mark 5:7; James 2:19),
self-awareness (Mark 5:9),
will (Matthew 8:31), and
ability to speak (Mark 1:24; 5:7-12; Acts 19:15).
To have a body means you do have authority over them, but only thru Jesus Christ, who was slain for mankind's sin. Demons know this, and if you note
every demonic haunting episode, the demons forced to leave, were thru cleansing, or exorcisms, where they prayed and called on the power and authority
of the Father in Heaven, thru Jesus Christ.
On a last note, I would not recommend exorcising demons. Always contact someone with experience in such matters
