Last week I wrote an article titled “The Spiritual War IS Seeping Over To The Physical – The Days of Noah Are Upon Us. “ From that I article I got a lot of emails from people asking a lot of great questions. What I want to do is take the time to answer these questions. But many of the questions asked can not be answered with a quick one paragraph answer. So I hope to answer these very important questions in the weeks ahead.
It is critical to the church to come to the realization that we are in fact living in the days that Christ called “The days of Noah.”
The most asked question I got in emails was…
What Are Demons? Are They Fallen Angels?
The quick answer is no. Angels have bodies, they can be touched, they can eat, and do other things that humans can do because they have a body.
Demons are bodiless spirits, in fact evil spirits. They do not have bodies and their biggest desire besides killing us, stealing from us and destroying us is to have a body they can call their own.
Here is an interesting passage from the book of Enoch. NOTE – Enoch is NOT canonized as part of Holy Scripture. It is though excellent reference of history that many historians do value and it does correspond with other historical accounts.
“In those days, when the children of man had multiplied, it happened that there were born unto them handsome and beautiful daughters. And the angels, the children of heaven, saw them and desired them; and they said to one another, ‘Come, let us choose wives for ourselves from among the daughters of man and beget us children.’ . . . And they took wives unto themselves, and everyone (respectively) chose one woman for himself, and they began to go unto them. . . .
Then Michael, Surafel, and Gabriel observed carefully from the sky and they saw much blood being shed upon the earth, and all the oppression being wrought upon the earth. . . . As for the women, they gave birth to giants to the degree that the whole earth was filled with blood and oppression. And now behold, the Holy One will cry, and those who have died will bring their suit up to the gate of heaven. Their groaning has ascended (into heaven), but they could not get out from before the face of the oppression that is being wrought on earth. . . . And to Gabriel the Lord said, ‘Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates and against the children of adultery; and destroy the children of adultery and expel the children of the Watchers from among the people. And send them against one another (so that) they may be destroyed in the fight, for length of days have they not. . . .’
And when they and all their children have battled with each other, and when they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them for 70 generations underneath the rocks of the ground until the day of their judgment and of their consummation, until the eternal judgment is concluded. . . . But now the giants who are born from the (union of) the spirits and the flesh shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, because their dwelling shall be upon the earth and inside the earth. Evil spirits have come out of their bodies. Because from the day that they were created from the holy ones they became the Watchers; their first origin is the spiritual foundation. They will become evil upon the earth and shall be called evil spirits.”

Demons are the spirits of dead Nephilim, the offspring between the fallen angels and human women.
They do not have souls so they cannot go to heaven nor go to hell, at least at this present time. Christ tells us that these evil spirits walk the earth’s dry places seeking out rest, but finding none. They are also seeking any host that is open to letting them in either by invitation or by force.
Matthew 12: 43 – 45 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth [it] empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last [state] of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
How Many Angels Rejected God and Fell With Satan?
During the days of Noah, the pre-flood, fallen angels populated the earth and walked among men. So how many angels fell?
Scripture does not say, but we can get a rough idea from Revelation.
Revelation 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
Running the quick math we find 10,000 x 10,000 = 100,000,000 (one hundred million)
Now these are angels that were just around the throne of God at the time John was viewing this. Who knows how many more were out doing battle, protecting people, doing other jobs, etc.
Even though we really do not know the actual number, just for the sake of giving us “an idea” let’s use the 100 million number. One third of 100 million is 30 million. That is a lot of angels that could be populating the earth during the time of Noah and all of those fallen angels taking wives from the human population.
During the days of Noah people were having babies and a rather large rate, which means that the fallen angels were also adding to this population explosion. So much so that the human DNA strain was getting “polluted” with the angel “DNA” and out of those unions came the “Nephilim”
We read in scripture the following…
Genesis 6: 1-9, 11-13
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
Is it possible that due to the fallen angels taking human wives totally corrupted the bloodline from Adam? What we need to understand is that this has been going on since the fall of Eden. The fallen angels were on the earth all this time with man, spreading their “demon seed.”
We are able to get an estimate of how many years based on the generational account.
1 – Adam (generation 1) is created.
130 – Adam and Eve receive a son, Seth (generation 2)
235 – Enosh is born (generation 3)
325 – Kenan is born (generation 4)
395 – Mahalaleel is born (generation 5)
460 – Jared is born (generation 6)
622 – Enoch is born (generation 7)
687 – Methuselah is born (generation 8) “Methuselah” can be translated “when he dies it comes”.
874 – Lamech is born (generation 9)
930 – Adam dies, aged 930
987 – Enoch taken up by God (did not die [Gen5:24]), aged 365
1042 – Seth dies, aged 912
1056 – Noah is born (generation 10)
So we see that Noah was born in 1056 – So roughly man and fallen angels have been walking together on the earth for about 1050+ years.
When we think about it, when God caused the flood to take place and cleanse the earth of all man-kind, is it possible that just about every living “human” had some small bit of “fallen angel” DNA thus making them impure nephilim? Is it this impure DNA that caused man to be “hyper-evil”?
Man and his sin nature can be evil, but when you mix in some fallen angel DNA, does the depravity of man expand? God looked down on the earth and was utterly disgusted at the state of man and the evil that he has sunk too.
How Many Died In The Flood – What Was Pre-Flood Population?
To get an idea of how many people/nephilim died in the flood we have to have an idea of how many people were on the earth at that time.
I did some quick research and found that Ken Ham’s organization already did the math for us. FYI – Ken Ham / Answers in Genesis is also the same organization that have built and created “The Ark Experience.”
Here is how they answer that question…
“For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away.” (Matthew 24:38–39).
The New Testament repeats the truth taught in Genesis that only eight people survived the global Flood (1 Peter 3:20). Every person outside the Ark when the Flood began perished. How many people in all lost their lives at that time? The Bible does not reveal how many people were on Earth when the Flood started, so we can only offer educated guesses about the pre-Flood population.
Some people believe the population was relatively low. The Bible explains that people were extremely corrupt and violent prior to the Flood. It is not hard to imagine the world being filled with wars, diseases, and other factors that would keep the population in check.
Others believe that Earth’s population was much higher. If the growth rate in the pre-Flood world was equal to the growth rate in 2000 (0.012), there could have been about 750 million people at the time of the Flood. However, given the extremely long lifespans prior to the Flood, the growth rate could have been much higher. Increasing the rate by just 0.001 would put the population at close to four billion at the Flood.
The judgment of the Flood caught people unawares, just as the coming judgment (2 Peter 3) will fall on a world that does not expect it. Earth currently has about seven billion inhabitants. How many of them will be judged with eternal condemnation if the Lord were to return soon? We must share the gospel of Jesus Christ while we still have the opportunity.”
Just for argument sake, maybe everyone alive did not have “fallen angel” DNA, maybe say 2 billion were “corrupt.”
There are 7 billion on the earth today, which is 1 demon for every 3.5 people walking the earth today.
Now if everyone that lived had the corrupt DNA, that means that roughly four billion human hybrids died in the flood and it is the spirits of these fallen angel / human hybrids that are the demons we know today.
Run the numbers and that equates to approximately 2 people for every one demon walking the earth today.
What is The Purpose or Goal of Demons?
Demons are the minions of Satan. They gladly serve him because they were born of the fallen angels who joined Satan’s rebellion against our most Holy God.
We read in John 10:10 the following…
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Who is the “thief” that Christ is talking about here? It none other than Satan. So, Satan and his minions desire to steal from us, kill us and destroy us.
This is why it is vitally important that we have a solid understanding of the days that we are living in.
We need to remember that a demon cannot possess a Christian, but it can strongly influence a Christian who is in a weakened state.
Ben Alexander of ESP Ministries once wrote…
“Demons cannot live in a Christian’s heart, but they can perch on the Christian’s shoulders and whisper in Christian’s ears.”
We need to fully understand the days and times we are living in. We cannot sluff things off expecting someone else take action.
We need to take responsibility and understand the forces of evil that are attacking the church, our nation and the world today, here and now. We need to get in the battle now and let tomorrow take care of itself.
The souls of millions are being lost because we have been so self-consumed. We have to take action now for the sake of our friends, family and loved ones. The enemy is winning and attracting millions for his cause.
When are we going to start caring and start winning again for our cause?
We must dawn the armor of God and stand against the wiles of evil whenever possible.
This is why I strongly believe that God is raising up strong warriors, what I call Servant Warriors, to do battle both in the spiritual and physical. We have a literal war going on and like it or not, The Christian church today is very weak due to pastors preaching all this psycobabble instead of preaching the Holy and absolute truth, convicting the people via the Word of God.
It is the Servant Warrior that is recognizing this and taking action to train up, pray up and have the Word of God within their hearts so that when that evil day comes, and having done all… To Stand.
We are facing demon possessed people, don’t believe me?

I will continue with this series. If you have questions, contact me and I will gladly answer them as best as I can.
In the next installment I will be looking at “What Demons CAN DO” and folks there is a lot that they can do that we do not realize that they ARE doing in the world today.
