Fact a Day: October 23rd

The Facts on The Occult (Harvest House, 1991), p. 16


Are demons polymorphs (able to assume different forms), and what are poltergeists? What are the implications of the imitating capacities of demons?


As we have seen, the Scripture speaks of the reality of a personal devil and myriads of demons who have “great power” and who should be regarded as cunning enemies of all men (Isa. 47:9; Matt. 6:13; 9:34; Luke 8:12; 13:16; John 8:44; 13:27; Acts 16:18; 2 Cor. 2:11; 4:4; 11:3; Col. 1:13; 2 Thess. 2:9; 2 Tim. 2:26).

One of the devil’s key tactics is to masquerade as “an angel of light” or a servant of righteousness. Scripture states clearly that “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14); that is, that he and his demons can imitate a good spirit or entity merely to suit their own evil purposes. Is it then logical or wise for those who contact the spirits to uncritically accept the spirits’ claims to be divine entities, or to believe them when they claim that their true motives are to help humanity spiritually?

How can anyone logically do this when it is a fact that throughout the history of the occult, men have recognized the endless morphology and mimicking capacity of the spirits?
