Demons can influence behavior, and be a root cause of sexual promiscuity and/or perversion, homosexuality is a perversion, it's part of our
lower-self, or carnal being, which is why we also see homosexuality in the animal kingdom - beasts, acting like beasts. Satan is the beast, demons
are the beasts minions.
The beast dwells within all humans, to tame the beast you must take from the Tree of Life, the Tree of Life is the Word of God, the Word of God is the
Logos, the Logos is the Son of God, the Son of God is the Son of David, the Son of David is Yeshua the Messiah who was born in Nazareth around ~3 A.D.
and was crucified on a Roman Cross in atonement for the sins of humanity sometime around ~30 A.D..
Demon comes into the English by way of the Latin and Greek: G1140 daimonion dahee-mon'-ee-on
neuter of a derivative of G1142;
a dæmonic being; by extension a deity.
KJV: devil, god.
This in turn comes from the Greek word for Satan, which is Adversary or Diablos, G1228 diabolos dee-ab'-ol-os
a traducer; specially, Satan (compare H7854).
KJV: false accuser, devil, slanderer.
The Diablos, the Devil, the Adversary or Satan is the Beast, the Serpent, the Deceiver, all perversion, death, iniquity and darkness has its roots in
this "entity" or "force"
The Devil/Satan is as real as you and I, and so are demons,
So, and I say this without having watched the video yet, I'd be careful with saying things aren't real or don't exist if you haven't done the
research and haven't discovered the Truth of the matter.....
The Greek-Latin Diablos or Devil or Demon, comes from the Hebrew, Shaytan, or Sawtawn, Satan,
H7854 satan saw-tawn'
an opponent; especially (with the article prefixed) Satan, the arch-enemy of good.
KJV: adversary, Satan, withstand.
The "Sons of God" were first mentioned in Genesis 6, and they are known as the fallen angels, or Satans minions, Demons,
H430 'elohiym el-o-heem'
plural of H433;
gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of
deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative.
KJV: angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty.
That was what was translated into Sons of God in Genesis 6, elohim, plural, or "false gods".
This is why YHWH says not to sacrifice to false gods, because when you sacrifice to false gods or take oaths to false gods, you're not sacrificing to
"gods" at all, but to demons.
In Gen 6:4 we read of the "Nephilim" or Giants,
H5303 nphiyl nef-eel'
or nphil [nef-eel'];
from H5307; properly, a feller, i.e. a bully or tyrant.
Nephilim, fallen angels, again, what we today call "demons"
in 1 Samuel 28:13, the "witch" or "conjurer" of Endor whom King Saul consults to bring up the spirit of the deceased Judge of Israel, Samuel, says
she sees "gods" ascending from the earth
1 Samuel 28:13
King James Version (KJV)
13 And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth.
The word translated into gods here is the earlier word I brought up, plural elohim,
This is why God disallows contact with the dead, because in trying to "contact" the dead, we're conjuring up "gods", aka demons.
I hope this all helps someone,
In the Most Holy Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
