In the books written by pastor Ki-Dong Kim, he clarified the difference between the Devil, deceiving spirits, and demons. All the books are supported by the Bible.
The important thing is to understand the difference between the Devil and demons. After Jesus receiving baptism, I have the authority to defeat demons by the name of Jesus, as the Bible shows in Mark 16:17, and the Holy Spirit signs manifest. One of them is having the authority to cast out demons.
The dead spirits of the unbelievers remain in the world until Jesus comes again, and after that, they have to go abyss. Another important point is that demons enter the body through deceiving spirits into people’s minds and make people weaken. The deceiving spirits give the entrance of the demons for demons to enter people. The manifestations of the demons cause physical diseases, and they even want to kill people, even if people believe in Jesus, the disease is caused.
Despite the person being in faith, the demons can enter the bodies of the believers but cannot enter the spirit, so they must be expelled by the name of God with the Holy Spirit.
The other important point of the book is the description of Hades, which is the place where the light of God does not enter, that is, it is totally dark and the eternal prisons where the Devil and his angels are locked up.
In conclusion, we must have firm faith life. We have to repent and receive the Holy Spirit. Also, we should feed the spirit with God’s word so that the signs should manifest. The signs can manifest by preaching the word, laying hands on the sick, speaking in tongues, and cast out demons with the authority of the name of Jesus. It is clear that Jesus’ name will be praised by preaching the gospel to people who do not know Him and making them His disciples.
