    Demons are every where.  If you walk in darkness, then demons will walk with you everyday. The Devil does hang around to tempt us though.

    Your second question  - Satan, the devil, or Lucifer are all the same person.  Just different names.

    Though Evil may surround us, we can be warriors for good with every good deed we choose to perform.  Those histories of good deeds are our shield against evils' influence to a certain extent.  We cannot avoid evil totally in this trial called life on earth.

    Our focus should be on doing good and on the good others do, not the evil that is. 

    I think service to others will help us overcome.  There is power is helping others.  More power than we can even comprehend...

    The point, is to do good.

    Yes the devil walk amongst us daily.  Satan is the Prince of the power of the Air (Ephesians 2.2), meaning Satan is everywhere. The devil and Lucifer are the old names of Satan, Satan's new name is "Prince of the power of the air."

    The writer Phillip Roth wrote about his funny character Trick E. Dixion that he ended up in hell running for Devil against Satan.  So according to that devil would the the title of the office, like Ceasar and Satan would be the evil one's name.  Actually Satan is standard hebrew for "the accuser".  It became related to the fallen angel or the one that challenged faith.  Lucifer originally meant morning star, but it was related to fallen star or the fallen angel.  The fallen angel was considered a demon.

    I agree with the majority.  We are filled partly with good and partly with evil.  Evil is real; you could call the mass of our joint evil Satan. 

    As human beings we have a capacity to choose.  We make choices all day long, every day.  Each choice has a level of good to it.  When we choose evil, we are doing evil and for that moment, we are evil - we are the demons and our evil mixes with the evil choices of others and makes our world crueler.

    When we choose good, our choices combine with the good choices of others and make our world better.  Whatever we wish other people would choose, we cannot control that.  We can only control our own choices.  Happiness is found, imo, by choosing good to the best of our abilities, all through the day, every day.  When enough people do that, the world/civilization will be healthy and happy.

    When you look up "Satan" in the Bible, it says that he is "evil". That is practically the only type of description of him: "Satan is Evil". When you look up "Evil", it says that it is "not God".  When you look up "God", you will see descriptions about "love", "good", and "kindness". Whatever is not good, it is evil, and evil is Satan.  Those who follow God, or the path of good, will go to heavan.  Those who do evil, or non-good things, go to hell. Since we are sinners, it is up to us to repent our sins for forgiveness.

    Devils and demons are amongst us all the time; I don't believe they physically, in human form, stand or walk next to us.  There aren't any articles in the bible of demons walking around in human form, however, there was one description of the Devil talking to Jesus. It doesn't say whether or not he was in human form, just that he "came" to him. For all we know, he could've come to his mind, but most people read it as if he came in human form.  In Genesis, Satan came to Eve in the form of a serpant, who told her to eat the forbidden fruit. 

    The Spirits of good and evil can see everything in you: your heart and your mind.  Ever have thoughts cross your mind?  Whether you should or should not do something?  That's them....

    The Dragon, The Serpent of Old, The Devil and Satan are listed together as one in Revelation Chapter 12:9 and Chapter 20:2.  Lucifer is only shown in Isaiah 14, the king of Babylon.  His characteristics match all prophecy of the coming antichrist, the king of end-time Babylon.  The antichrist and false prophet are thrown into the Lake of Fire at the beginning of the millennial reign of Christ.  Satan is bound at that time and loosed at the end of the millennial reign for a short time.  He is then cast into the Lake of Fire (after the millennial reign).  I have a hub called "Lucifer: The spirit of Antichrist" you might want to read.  Lucifer is the false messiah of the false god (Satan).  Lucifer is Hay-lel' in Hebrew meaning "morning star" and Jesus is called the "morning star" in Revelation 22:16.  Isaiah 14:16 states that Lucifer is a man.  Demons are said to be the spirits of the Nephilim (the giants of old) who were destroyed by the great flood.  They are the spirits that were cast out of people in the days of Jesus, and are still active in the world today.  Satan is the "god of this world" that is the force behind Lucifer, the other fallen angels, and demons.

    Satan is the accuser, adversary, slanderer, and watchman on earth (Old Testament) Job chapters 1 and 2.  Psalm 109:6; Zechariah 3:1-2

    He is the serpent, the most cunning of the beasts that God created:  (Genesis 3:1)

    He is the crooked (fugitive) serpent.  (Job 26:13)

    God created him as the waster to destroy (Isaiah 54:16)

    The Devil is Satan is the serpent

    Lucifer was king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon.  Lucifer (false) will be the anti-Christ

    Yes, look all around you at the "bad" and "injustice" going on in the world today.  God, is love and good.  He has no parts of that.  We create angels from our mouths everyday - the bible states "the tongue has the power of life and death" and God warns us to be very careful how we use it.  So many people are so negative today, they damn everthing and everybody no matter what they do.  They even damn themselves.  Jealously is the key and core of all evil in this lifetime.  Some thinks they should have had that, not their neighbor, and that is how it all starts.  The eyes see and ask the mind to justify why don't we have that? Then the heart replies with self pity then Jealousy is born from there it builds up and flows outward over the tongue into the world where it starts to take a form of evil and destruction.

    Dear Hubber,
    The Lord Jesus Christ said the thief(the devil) has come to steal to kill and to destroy.
    Also in revelations after satan was cast to the earth, it was proclaimed that devil has come to the earth having great wrath. (Revelations 12 verse 12).
    We saw this wrath when he deceived Adam and Eve.

    Lucifer and Satan are one in the same, he was called Lucifer before his fall also Lucifer was known as "Son of the Morning Star"

    Before his fall, he was like an arc angel. But inequity was found in him, his pride became sin. He sought to put himself above God (his creator) and was thrown down.

    When he fell, he took 1/3 of the angels with him, they are now called demons or unclean spirits who do Satan's work.

    Satan means adversary and that's what he is, God's adversary.

    Demons walk among us, not necessarily with us. However, we can choose to walk with them or we can choose to walk with Jesus. Live (obey) the Word of God and you'll walk with him in the light.

    It's like choosing light over darkness. Which do you prefer?

    Q. What does it mean: “I beheld Satan falling like lightning from Heaven?

    A. That is when the disciples returned, glorifying God and telling what marvelous things they had seen with the teachings to all kinds of people, casting out the unlovely things in people. Then he rejoiced when he heard of the great works being done by those whom he had taught and he said: “I beheld Heaven.” Well, Satan is really the state. Satan is only the embodiment of unbelief. He saw the entire thing fall, because here they could have done nothing unless they believed. “According to your belief be it done unto you. Your faith has made you whole.” So when the seventy returned filled with good news of what they had done through the teaching, he saw unbelief tumble from Heaven, for Heaven is within you. Therefore, it is always the state within you that dictates policy - what you will believe, what you will not believe. Then, in that Heavenly state, unbelief is cast out.

    The fall, in symbolism, is associated with the serpent. As God's wisest creature, he said to generic man (in the form of woman): "Did God say you would die?" and she answered: "Yes, if I ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." Then he made this statement: "God knows you will not surely die, but your eyes will be opened and you will become like the gods, knowing good and evil." (Genesis 3) The serpent has now become man! This serpent is described by Isaiah as the seraphim [sic]. Describing his vision, Isaiah said: "I beheld the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up. Above him were the seraphim." In Hebrew, the word means glorious celestial being, fiery serpent, noble one, prince.

    The name Satan (derived from ancient Hebrew - it means 'adversary') as used in the Bible: along with devil, beast etc, usually refers to the king or emperor of whatever empire was oppressing the Jews at the time of writing. In Revelation, for instance, when St John refers to the 'beast from the sea' he is talking about the sequence of seven roman emperors that begins with Nero and ends with Domitian.

    The red dragon that appeared in heaven (Revelation again) is a reference to the constellation of Hydra - the many headed serpent that guarded the tree that bore the golden apples in the garden of the Hesperides (Greek mythology). Which is, of course, where the writers of the Bible got the idea for the garden of Eden.

    The star that fell to earth: in Revelation, refers to the constellation (and one time - before it fell to earth - thirteenth house of the Zodiac) Ophiuchus - the serpent bearer.

    There are other instances: in the Bible, where people are 'possessed by demons' that are then cast out - which is a reference to various forms of psychotic illness.

    Lastly we have the demons that beset certain prophets that go off to fast in a cave (classic shamanistic behaviour) in order to obtain visions of the future and commune with God - if you read these passages carefully what you will find, therein described, is some of the best narrative descriptions of a hallucinogenic condition known as delirium tremens (what an American would call 'cold turkey') ever written.

    I hope this answers your question

    All the best.

    Some of you peopl,e anger me.. One, yes Demons can walk around us. But they arnt always near us through out every day all day. Unless you have sonething they want or are curious of you or if even you're just in their terriory then yes maybe. But always if at all. Satan, a.k.a. Sammiel was once a very loved and promenent Archangel. He wanted to take over the Golden Thrown and become God. He led a brutal campaigne in the Heavens but ultimately fell and his allies and followers with him. He was sentenced an eternity in Hell to forever be the punisher of sin. His Angels became corrupt and turned into Demons. 'The Devil' normally quarlates to being Sammiel himself. But the term 'Devil' as in, a devil, isn't necessarly mean it is speaking of Satan. A Devil can be a very powerful, individualistic Demon. Isn't always Satan. As of for Lucifer, it is just a term meaning 'Fallen' or 'Cast out'. Christians get quite confused over this. Even though they are apart of the creation of such classification. Any Fallen Angel can be called a Lucifer. Or just Lucifer.
    Anyway, I hope this helped out. Have a good one.

    To answer your question people tend to picture this Fallen Angel by the many names,  but in reality his real name is unknown on purpose. The names used are really what describes his personality,  satan, means resister, people also
    Have given him names, he is the very enemy of the heavenly Father he created his own character.

      Also we know the word satan is not his personal name but describes ones action like a verb.
      Notice what Jesus calls Peter Simon
      Mt 16:23
      Here he says ' Get behind me satan'
      This proves the word as a verb a expression of resistance.

    The Hubpage rules say you can't copy another sight in whole or a large part, so I'm just going to say what I think.  I live in an apartment building and myself and the tenants downstairs have seen apparitions.  We don't do ouija boards and we aren't athiests.  Sometimes, it feels like a cat is brushing against my leg while I'm at the computer.  My cat was not in the room.  I will usually wake up for no reason, around 3:12 a.m. and it takes awhile to go back to sleep.  I will hear footsteps and no one is there.  I am not afraid of whatever is there.  I don't believe it can hurt me  -- they are only spirits (air) and (a little tiny bit of energy).  My former apartment (in the same building) was creepier.  When I first moved in, I was up late, cleaning the place.  I heard a sound at the door like a dog's claws digging at it.  I waited a few minutes and finished whatever I had been doing and then went to the door.  Nothing was there.  I did have one very strange thing happen one night, and it did scare me a little bit.  I was sitting at the table and the only light in the apartment was in that room (kitchen).  I looked over, for no reason, towards the door where a few months earlier, I had heard the digging.  I saw the outline of a dog-like animal only about 3 feet away from me.  I could see right through it.  It was outlined in sort of like blurry black dots.  I couldn't really see its face.  When I looked at it, it froze into place, with one foreleg extended.  I guess when it knew I could see it, it disappeared.  I know this sounds nuts, but it's true.  And yes, I believe demons are here and Satan, Lucifer and the Devil are all the same entity.

    Funny I've just read the whole book of revelation, while doing some research on archeology and mythology. From a religious point of view. After reading this, all I can say is.

    I LOVE SATAN  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If we read between the lines, we realized within revelation, Yahweh (name of Christian god), is the bad guy, here to enslave us and to conduct persecution upon us, for refusing to worship him as the one and only true god and refusing to be his slave.

    Satan is the heavenly mother, trying to protect us, her children, from been the slaves and persecuted by Yahweh. Even the battle between Satan and his angles vs Yahweh's angel led by Michael, even in the bible say the same thing, it is Satan trying to protect us, from been persecuted by Yahweh, after Yahweh send flood and plague upon us, for refusing to be his slave and then send an army of angel to kill 1/3 of all human.

    The bible itself, is pro Yahweh propaganda, as a result, even when it admit, Yahweh, is persecuting men, it claim Yahweh is doing good and the punishment the people got is just, because they refuse to be Yahweh's slave.

    Revelation story abstract suggest Yahweh and his angels was originally sealed away by Satan and the world live in freedom, peace and liberty, under Satan's protection, till Yahweh worshipers free him, then Yahweh, send plague, flood, earthquake upon men as revenge for them refusing to be his slave and refusing to worship him. After many death, Satan showed up, as a mighty dragon, leading her army to seal Yahweh away again. But this time, Satan lost. Satan and her army, retreated to another world and Yahweh rule for 1000 years, till Satan and her forces, return and drove Yahweh away. Then Yahweh will retreat and establish a new kingdom in another land, preparing to launch war against Satan and his angels again.

    But the bible continue to claim a distorted version of right and wrong, claiming the land of peace and liberty free from Yahweh's rule as evil, because they refuse to be Yahweh's slave and what Yahweh is doing is good, because he is punishing none Yahweh worshipers, for not been his slave, it claim Satan to be evil, because she is protecting men from been enslaved by Yahweh. (Also, in pre Christian mythology, human are not creation of Yahweh, but children of Satan the goddess of Babylon and her husband Tammauz the King of Babylon.)

    Don't believe me, read revelation urself:

    Who is Lucifer?

    Isaiah 14:12-14

    "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"

    "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Yah: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:"

    "I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."

    See, Christians misinterpret this and think that Lucifer was the highest angel who then became prideful and rebelled, resulting in him being cast down. But I want you to notice something. Isaiah 14 isn't dealing with celestial angels. It is about a prophecy regarding the children of Jacob.

    Now go back to Isaiah 14 12, but read until verses 15 and 16. Notice how in 16 it says, "Is this the MAN that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;". Why would they be calling Lucifer a man if he is a spirit? Why didn't they say angel? Because Lucifer is basically a name used for the ruler of Babylon, not the name of a spiritual being.

    The N.I.V. and other modern versions have set out the text of Isaiah chapters 13-23 as a series of “burdens” on various nations, e.g. Babylon, Tyre, Egypt. Isaiah 14: 4, sets the context of the verses we are considering: “Thou shalt take up this proverb (parable) against the king of Babylon...” (Isaiah 14 4). The prophecy is therefore about the human king of Babylon, who is described as “Lucifer”. On his fall: “they that see thee shall...consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble...?” (v. 16). Thus Lucifer is clearly defined as a man. Lucifer was a human king , “All kings of the nations...shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?” (vs. 9-10). Lucifer was therefore a king like any other king.
