Angels, Demons, Fallen and Fairies. One: they are all real. But before you go crazy – let’s take them one at a time. First, Angels because they are the basis of all of the Spirits. So let’s start at the beginning. Where do they come from?
Well, God created everything that exists, so God created angels. But when? Well according to Saint Augustine, one of my personal favs, said that since God made everything in the six days they had to be created sometime during that period. Augustine said, that when God said, ‘Let there be light’, that was the creation of the angels because the Bible is specific about angels being radiant, illuminating the truth and light of God, opposing the darkness. Because God didn’t create the stars, the moon and the sun until the Fourth Day, what was the light on the First Day? It was the angels. As a matter of fact the whole First Day with separating the Light from the Darkness is about the rebellion in Heaven.
It seems to be accepted that Angels, no matter what religion, are aemortal meaning they have a beginning but not ending. Only God is immortal, without beginning or ending. It is also accepted that they can travel at the speed of thought. Have no bodies but can create bodies to interact with humans, as we see in many holy books, including our Bible.
Now, Angels were given free will just like us. Enter Demons. Since Spirits (angels) were born with the knowledge of the consequences of their actions, they were asked, if they wanted to be with God or away from Him. If they choose with God, they were given the state of Angels. If they choose against God, they would be cast out and became Demons.
It was only after that, that the War in Heaven took place. Now, it is said the Lucifer was upset that humans were going to be created and would be called the Children of God and was jealous. So he rebelled against God. Now, it is also said that one third of the angels followed Michael and one third followed Lucifer. Lucifer and his followers were defeated, they were again given a choice being with God or being cast out. They choose cast out and became the Fallen. Note how Demons and Fallen are different.
So the creation of Angels (light) and the division of light from darkness (the Demons and Fallen) occurred on the First Day.
This leaves us with the Fairies. Most people who believe in Angels don’t believe in Fairies. Why not? If one third of the angels followed Michael and one third followed Lucifer. What happened to the other third? The third that didn’t make a decision and decided to wait out the war, were the Fairies. Now why do we say this, because they are in the Bible.
Yes, they are.
Now. Before I tell you where, let’s go over what we know of Fairies. They have magical powers, the same kind associated with Angels. Some are considered vicious, and some helpful. They are one with nature. They tend to watch people.
Now, there are a group of beings in the Bible, that are Angels that keep watch over people, some choose to be mean and take human women as wives, but some are called Holy Ones from God just like Angels. They were called the Watchers in Genesis. They were sent by God to Watch over the people. I think that they are not only watching over people with the other angels, but since they are physically on earth they are also here to learn from us, and how we make decisions.
“Tell the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, ‘Watchers come from a far country, and raise their voice against the cities of Judah. As keepers of a field, they are against her all around, because she has been rebellious against me,’” says Yahweh. Jeremiah 4:16-17
I saw in the visions of my head on my bed, and behold, a watcher and a holy one came down from the sky. Daniel 4:13
They are also in the Jubilees, in which they are teachers of mankind. Some sources say that they are also the Sons of God from Genesis 6. So even in the Bible we have sometimes good Watchers and sometimes bad Watchers. So if they are not Demons or the Fallen (evil ones) or Angels (holy ones) who are the Watchers? In the Middle Ages, it was believed that the Watchers are the Fairies. They were sometimes called Elves, Gnomes, Trolls, etc., but the Watchers were all Neutral Angels, not having taken a side in the War in Heaven.
Fairies exist as surely as Angels, Fallen and Demons exist. Fairies, by not being Angels or Fallen, are like people, some good, some bad – all trying to make our way to turn back to God.
Just a little something for you to think about today.
Peace be with you.
