The 10 Commandments were written in stone, and they still are on monuments around the world. And in this case, the medium is a message: commandments chiseled in stone are supposed to be permanent, unchanging.

Everyone familiar with the Bible knows it talks about angels and demons. But most would be surprised to learn that there’s no verse in the Bible that explains where demons came from. Christians typically assume that demons are fallen angels, cast from heaven with Satan (the Devil) right before the temptation of Adam and Eve. But guess what? There’s no such story in the Bible. The only description of anything like that is in Revelation 12:9—but the occasion for that whole episode was the birth of the messiah (Rev 12:4-6), an event long after Adam and Eve. The idea of a primeval fall of angels actually comes from church tradition and the great English poet John Milton in his epic Paradise Lost.
So if the Bible doesn’t record an ancient expulsion from heaven by hordes of angels who then became known as demons, where do demons come from?

Bob’s parents didn’t push him to excel in school. They didn’t pressure him to win every game. They weren’t overly concerned with his report cards. Instead, they gave him encouragement to find and explore his own passions.
Start Next Now was written to pass along what Bob learned from his parents:
I’ve been a Logos Bible Software evangelist and cheerleader since 1997. One of the many reasons I’m so passionate about Logos is because it brings greater insights from the Hebrew and Greek languages to English students. Features like the Exegetical Guide, Bible Word Study, and Information all place original language facts right at our finger tips.

Thousands of readers have already recovered the supernatural worldview of the Bible by reading The Unseen Realm by Dr. Michael Heiser. New connections across Scripture have been revealed as our understanding of the supernatural realm grows. Scholars and reviewers are raving about the insights found in The Unseen Realm—one reviewer even called it “the most thought provoking, thrilling, insightful book I have read all year.”
From age four to age 18 I read the KJV pretty much exclusively. All my Scripture memory in kids ministries was taken from the KJV, and I even begged my second-grade teacher at my Christian school to let the class speak in King James English for a day. She actually said we would do it, but she never followed through . . . (My belly hath been made bitter even unto this day.)
