Q. When God threw Lucifer and the fallen angels to earth, It seemed logical to think these fallen angels were the demons doing Satan’s bidding in the lives of mankind. I am being told that demons and fallen angels are not the same. I find nothing in my Bible that defines them as different or having different distinct attributes. Are they two different things?
A. First, Satan’s expulsion from heaven along with his angels takes place in Rev. 12:7-9 which won’t happen until the beginning of the Great Tribulation.
Second, while most scholars believe there’s a difference between demons and fallen angels, defining that difference is not a matter of general agreement.
Since demons seek physical embodiment, some people believe they used to be physical beings and are perhaps the wandering spirits of the Nephilim.
