James 2:19 (New Century Version)
You believe there is one God. Good! But the demons believe that, too, and they tremble with fear.
This is an interesting one. I don’t think anyone can say it’s not. Demons? Come on! The topic on demons in the bible is such an interesting topic! And there is TONS of info on demons (in the bible) It KILLS me to read peoples’ FB status’ or stories about “ghosts” because everyone is sooo curious! Well it’s all answered in the bible. There IS a such thing as the paranormal. There is a perfect explanation to all the spooky stuff that happens. It can be backed up with science along side of the bible. And the answer: DEMONS! Demons have been around longer than Adam & Eve. They have roamed this earth forever. FYI – Adam & Eve were not the first people on this earth. There was a whole race before them. Interesting, huh?
Anyway back to the verse… The demons know God. They know Jesus. They know what is going to happen to them at the end of time. That’s why it says the demons tremble with fear! Funny how the demons know God but so many of us deny Him. This verse basically says this: Soooo many people “claim” they ‘believe’ in God. Big deal! The demons ‘believe’ in God too. That doesn’t mean God is going to spare them at the end. To ‘believe’ in God – is to have a relationship with Him. It would be like me saying, “Hey, do you know that guy that lives down the block at the corner? Yeah, I ‘know’ him” Well kinda the same with God. When you have a relationship with Him, you are considered “His”. You are a “child of God”. Part of His ‘family’. You can claim to ‘know’ God – but it won’t get you into heaven unless you really KNOW Him!
