We believe in the existence of a superior creation called angels now divided into two categories: elect and fallen. Fallen angels (demons) are enemies of God and all people; they further divide into two classes: imprisoned and free (Mark 8:38; 1 Timothy 4:1; 5:21; 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6).
God’s Word reveals the personality, fall, and program of Satan, the leader of the fallen angels. His future confinement is in the Lake of Fire with all fallen angels and unbelieving humans. There they will experience everlasting conscious torment (Ezekiel 28:12–17; Job 1:6–7; Revelation 12:7–9; 20:10).
The Bible reveals a conflict between Satan and his forces (the fallen angels) and Michael, an archangel, and the elect angelic forces. This conflict has real impact on Christians, and thus, they are to prepare themselves for effective spiritual warfare. Through observing man, angels learn the wisdom of God (Daniel 10:13; Ephesians 3:10; 6:10–18; cf. Revelation 12:7–9).
