Show Notes: There is no reference in Scripture to where the devils (demons) originate, but we clearly see they exist
The only historically significant reference to their origin is in the non-canonical Book of Enoch.
Book of Enoch 5:28-32 -
“28 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling.
29 Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called.
30 And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble. They take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offenses.
31 And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.
32 From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgment, thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the great judgment in which the age shall be consummated, over the Watchers and and “the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated.”

Takeaway: The devils are very much a part of our reality and interfere in the affairs of men. They influence, if not control and possess, the satanic human proxies of government and all that oppose the Creator. But their end will be in the lake of fire, and we have power over them through the blood of Jesus Christ!
