We have seen the benefits of studying about good angels. Now we are now going to explore what the Bible says about evil angels. First, we will consider why a subject like this should be studied.

1. Part Of God's Word

The subject of evil, or fallen, angels is part of God's inspired Word. For that reason alone it should be studied. The Bible teaches us that all Scripture is beneficial.

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).

2. Illustrates Depth Of Sin

A study of evil angels will reveal the depths of sin and ruin that can occur when one turns from the Lord. Their example is one that we do not want to follow.

3. Inspire Hatred Of Evil

A hatred of evil can be gained by seeing the results of the sins of these fallen angels. Their rebellion has affected the lives of so many others. Knowing this truth, will further inspire believers to hate evil and love the good.

4. Shows Evil Will Be Judged

We learn the lesson from the fallen angels that evil will be judged. Though it may seem to be winning for the present time, eventually judgment day will come.

5. Hope Through Christ Alone

We discover that Christ is the only one who can deliver humanity from the power of these evil angels. We, in our strength, cannot deliver ourselves from their clutches.


The subject of fallen angels can be profitable. It is covered in a large part of the Scripture, and is, therefore, profitable for us. From a study of this subject, we learn the depths of sin, a renewed hatred for evil, an understanding that evil will eventually be judged, and that our hope is through Christ and Him alone.
