1. Their Former State

 

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast [them] down to hell, and delivered [them] into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; (2 Peter 2:4)

 

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (Jude 1:6)

 

2. The Prince of Demons

 

And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. (Mark 3:22)

 

3. Conflict with Spiritual Forces

 

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: (Ephesians 2:2)

 

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. (Ephesians 6:12)

 

4. Christ's Power Over Demons

 

For he said unto him, Come out of the man, [thou] unclean spirit. (Mark 5:8)

 

5. Their Acknowledgment of God

 

And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? (Matthew 8:29)

 

And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? (Acts 19:15)

 

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. (James 2:19)
