A Christian Doesn’t Believe The Devil Is A Fallen Angel

Jn 6:70 have not I chosen you twelve & one of you is a devil (false accuser)? Christ spoke of Judas, for it was he that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

The Greek word for “devil” means “false accuser” & the Greek word for “satan” means “adversary”, anyone that accuses someone of something that is false, is a devil, & anyone that is an adversary, is  satan.

Christ called Judas a devil because Judas was going to betray him, the fact that Christ called Judas a devil proves the truth that the devil is the flesh (man), not a fallen angel.

In Matthew 16:23, Christ called Peter, “satan” because Peter was speaking from the flesh, the flesh is the carnal mind, the mind of man is hostile to God (Romans 8:5-8)

Matthew 16:23 – But Christ turned away from Peter and said to him, Get behind me, satan [adversary]! You are in my way [an offense and a hindrance and a snare to me]; for you are minding what partakes not of the nature {and} quality of God, but of men.

Romans 8:5-8 – For those who are according to the flesh {and} are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on {and} pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit {and} are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on {and} seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.

8:6 – Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever].

8:7 – [That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot.

8:8 – So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please {or} satisfy God, {or} be acceptable to Him.

In the world today there is a large group of people that claim to be Christian that say, “the devil is a fallen angel”, that teaching does not agree with John 6:70-71 & Matthew 16:23.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “the devil is a fallen angel”, because the Bible does not say that. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something different than what the Bible says a Christian is supposed to believe.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something different than what the Bible says a Christian is supposed to believe, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit], they are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10 – But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.
