Angels, Demons, Heaven and Hell

Post by Jason on 6th June 2013, 3:22 pm

The Bible gives us some information about angels and demons, but I'm curious what your take on them is.

I now lead the lessons for a youth group, and last night we got into a discussion about angels and demons and heaven and Hell. As I'm sure you're more than aware, the media does a good job of making Hell seem like a "party place" even though it will be anything but that. The youth had some pretty confused images of what Hell looks like.

One question that was asked pertained to demons walking the earth. Sure we can't see them, but they are here and tempt us to do things that we shouldn't. Someone else asked if angels walk the earth the same way demons do. In my opinion they might not in a physical sense, but I believe that God has his way of making things happen and protecting his people. And this might be done through angels.

As for Heaven itself, there are so many things one can speculate on.

I don't have much time to go further, but I want to hear your thoughts on any of these topics; Heaven, Hell, Angels, and Demons.

"Sorry the party in hell has been cancelled due to the fire"
I just had to say that I saw it on a bumper sticker.

Another question that was asked was will there be animals in Heaven?

Personally I don't think there will be. I think Heaven might be a place strictly reserved for humans since the price was paid so that we could go there. It's not that I have anything against animals, I just don't think animals are built the same way we are. I honestly don't think animals express emotion in the same way we do. Sure, they do things that we connect with emotion due to our human understanding. But I'm more inclined to think that they "feel" things on a different level. Or at the very least just giving off the appearance of various emotions.

Well, animals don't have souls and there will be no sorrow so we won't miss our beloved Abbi or Sugarbear ect. However, I do think God might've created animals that live in heaven.

As far as angels go, I have heard a few stories of when people think that they might have met an angel. Some of these could be considered rumors, but one was told directly to my dad from the guy. He mentioned that we could choose to believe him, or not, but either way, he's a Christian because of that mysterious person.

Hebrews 13:2 says, "Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it." This can be taken literally, or in a sense (see Matthew 25:40).

We are told in Revelations about the lion eating grass like an ox, and the wolf lying beside the lamb. This may not be in Heaven, but it is after Christ's return and the end of times. I don't believe that animals have souls or that they will be raised again like we will be, but they are part of God's creation and will have a place after the end of times.

What do you believe about "the sons of God" marrying "the daughters of men"? What do you believe the Nephilim to be?

I believe that some of the demons cast down decided to take human form. I am not that knowledgeable on this subject though.

Jason, there will be at least some animals in Heaven, for Jesus will ride a white charger when He battles the forces of the Antichrist at Armageddon.

And we ain't talkin' the sports car.
