#Demons are like obedient dogs. . .Find Out How.

Thanks so much for visiting Keta's Keep. Today, we're talking about Demons and Angels. There's two sides to everything, right? Good vs. evil, demons vs. angels, dark vs. light.

When I wrote I SPY A DEMON, I knew very little about demons, their names, their rankings, how many times they're mentioned in the Bible and so much more. If you're curious about demons or angels, Google them and thousands of articles appear (and different opinions too).The same goes for books about demons/angels. One book I referred to often for my research was A Field Guide to Demons, Fairies & Fallen Angels. You can find several used paperback copies if you're interested in reading more about demons, fairies or fallen angels.

Here are two quotes I tried to keep in mind while writing I Spy A Demon:

"Be careful who you trust; the devil was once an angel." Unknown.

"Demons are like obedient dogs; they come when they are called." Remy de Gourmont

So in all fairness and equality, here are some more facts about Angels and Demons that might interest you.  


The term angel, which is derived from the Greek word angelos, is the equivalent of the Hebrew word mal’akh, meaning “messenger.” The literal meaning of the word angel thus points more toward the function or status of such beings in a cosmic hierarchy rather than toward connotations of essence or nature, which have been prominent in popular piety, especially in Western religions. Thus, angels have their significance primarily in what they do rather than in what they are. Whatever essence or inherent nature they possess is in terms of their relationship to their source (God, or the ultimate being).

Angelic Council: The seven archangels, Jegudiel, Gabriel, Selaphiel, Michael, Uriel, Raphael, Barachiel. 

Demon, also spelled daemon, Classical Greek daimon, in Greek religion, a supernatural power. In Homer the term is used almost interchangeably with theos for a god. The distinction there is that theos emphasizes the personality of the god, and demon his activity. Hence, the term demon was regularly applied to sudden or unexpected supernatural interventions not due to any particular deity. It became commonly the power determining a person’s fate, and a mortal could have a personal demon. As early as Hesiod (c. 700 bc), the dead of the Golden Age became demons; and later philosophical speculation envisaged these as lower than the gods (possibly mortal) but as superior to humanity.

One common medieval classification associate the seven deadly sins with archdemons:

Lucifer: pride, Mammon: greed, Asmodeus: lust, Leviathan: envy, Beelzebub: gluttony, Satan: wrath, Belphegor: sloth.

 Of course, you can always read more about demons and devils in our newly released anthology: A DARKER SHADE OF EVIL
Thanks so much for stopping by!
