What is the Doctrine of Demons?

Posted May 21, 2017 by Michael L. Brown

When Paul wrote about the “doctrine of demons,” was he referring to one specific doctrine or was it a general statement?

There is nothing general about what Paul is teaching in Timothy 4: 1-3, for it is very specific and compliments his teachings in II Corinthians 11: 1-4 and II Thessalonians 2: 1-4. The forbidding/preventing to marry that Paul is speaking of is the Marriage that Jesus taught in Matthew 25: 1-13. Paul made his thoughts on marriage quite clear in I Corinthians 7, so it is obvious that he is now speaking of the Spiritual Wedding that every Christian should look forward to. With regard to “abstaining from foods that God hath created to be received with gratitude by them which believe and know the truth”, there are only two foods that meet that criteria; that being the bread and the wine that a Christian believer partakes of during the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Those deceived during the “falling away” who accept “another Jesus” and believe “ another Gospel” will stop partaking in the Holy Communion and will be on the wrong side of the door when the true Bridegroom Yeshua Messiah Jesus returns.
