1. The point is, is that every demon that is mentioned in the Bible is alive and well today influencing people. Every "god" that the people of antiquity bowed to are real demons. They have names, and attributes.
2. It has been proven in my own life that praying against these demons by their names, and asking the Father, Almighty God, through his only begotten son, Jesus Christ to bind these attributes from a situation, or people is much more effective than a blanket prayer. 3. All prayers go through Jesus to the Father, and it is His power that upholds the prayer. Thus, His will being done, not our own.
No, there is nothing to fear from them, but as servants of the Lord, it is also our job to pray against them as well.
That is the reason for the charts.
1. Yes, that's what I thought you had in mind and it is a fact that all demons from the spiritual exile of the Nephilim, they are very much alive today and they all have names, though by no means are they all known by human beings. According to the Scriptures, there are very few in which any of their attributes are documented.
All of the gods, goddesses, princes and princesses of Babylonian; Assyrian; Egyptian; Medo-Persian; Greek and Roman mytholgy and legend have nothing to do with the real demons. That is why I questioned you. That the former is not confused with the real and only demons originating from the exiled spirits of the dead Nephilim.
As it states in Ecc.12:7, the dedad bodies return to the dust and the spirit/souls return to God who gave them and places a disposition on them as to whether they stay with Him in heaven or go to hell. In the case of the dead spirits of the Nephilim, they were relegated to spiritual exile on the earth seeking bodies to get into until the day of judgement when they will all be destroyed.
2. Why do you consider your personal situation any different than how Jesus prayed to the Father for us in the very same situation, in Jn.17:15? "My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one." Where He is referring to Satan, the leader of all the demons, fallen angels as well as one third of all the other created angels who chose to follow him instead of God. Jesus mention is of the one single primary source of all evil.
3. When Jesus died on the cross, the curtain in front of the Holy of Holies in the temple was torn from the top to the bottom, signifying Jesus had provided us full access to the Father. Therefore our prayers can be directed to either The Father or to Jesus. In most all cases, they are to the Father ...in Jesus name. See Jn.15:16 as an example. Yes, it is our responsibility to pray for deliverance against evil, as Jesus taught us in Mt.6:9-13, where He directed us to pray to the Father.

If most of what you've read and learned about the "gods" of mythology isn't starting to ring some bells and whistles in your head by now, then your not alive!. It is imperative that you notice that the "nephillim" are NOT the same as "fallen angels". You must understand that "fallen" in the case of these angels, is a "state" rather then a "condition" at FIRST. What I mean is, what happened to the fallen angels after they "procreated" with the daughters of men? Every indication would seem to say that the fallen angels "left" in the same way they "...came unto..". They materialized "out of the "flesh" and back into their original form (spirit)", leaving behind their offspring, the nephillim on earth. When they came unto the daughters of men, they must have manifested FLESH. There is no other explanation and NO reason to believe this not possible as the bible is fraught with occasions of "angels" appearing in the flesh, eating, drinking, talking, fighting etc, and then "de-materializing" back into "spirit". Do you think the daughters of men were wives to phantoms or thin air?. As uneasy as this will make you feel, it is a REALITY. But then you're going to say "now wait a minute here, angels are sexless. The bible says so, so they couldn't have copulated with women!". Well.... your bible does NOT tell you the angels are "sexless". This view stems from another misinterpretation of scripture. The distortion of Matt 22:30, Mark 12:25, and Luke 20:35. These verses of scripture, are some of the most mistranslated verses of all time. Jesus in no way denotes anything to do with the angels "sex", rather he is stating there is no need for angels to marry, as they are created ETERNAL. There is no need for them to "extend themselves". Marriage was created for prolonging the existence of a "fallen" human race through "procreation!". This IS the point he is making, because the fact of the matter is, all the "host of heaven", good and bad including the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, are ALL MALE!. You don't like it? TOUGH, cause thats what your bible TEACHES. Oh, and another thing, all of the "nephillim"?... were male ALSO, as there weren't any "mighty woman of renown", only MEN. Now, NO I'm not "sexist" or "racist", I'm just trying to state the abject facts according to the Holy Writ. There is New Testament confirmation however, that directly confirms the "angel view":
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation..... giving themselves over to fornication, and going after STRANGE FLESH, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire".
It should be noticed here that this is a very unique translation for the word "strange" here. It is one of 18 different translations, and only used in one place, one time, right here in Jude 7. It is[Strong's ref. 2087 heteros,het - er - os; of uncert. orig., other or different,:-altered, strange]. And it would seem that Peter affirms this as well:
"For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to tartarus, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgement; and spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person...."
As you can see, there seems to be harmony within the Old and New Testaments as to this strange anomaly I am bringing to your attention. The "angels" held in tartarus are from the days of Noah, and shall be released just prior to Judgement. The "angels that sinned" are those that "copulated" with women. These are held along with the "rapha" (demons from the nephillim). Demons not in tartarus right now (on the earth) are from the nephillim AFTER the flood. These are the same demons Jesus contended with in his time, and the ones that are seen today. But right now I'd like to draw your attention to the flood for a moment.
"...The spirits of the nephillim shall be like c l o u d s, which shall oppress, corrupt, fall, contend, and bruise those upon the earth...". (Enoch 15)
The adjective "clouds", is most descriptive (2 Pet.2:17, Jude 12). The relationship between "bruise those upon the earth" and Gen. 3:15 is most evident. All of the titles designated to angels can be either "good" or "fallen", with the exception of the Archangels (even though Satan could have possibly been an Archangel, the bible is silent on this). All angels according to the bible, were either cherubim or seraphim. There are no other "types" given. Satan IS a Cherub! That is how he was created. His NATURE has changed, but not too much else (in form). Its only wise to assume that all "fallen" angels must be of these two types as well, only their "alignment" has changed. Their "structure" (cherub or seraph), did not change when they fell. Their "angelic powers" were NOT changed as well. They are just limited now as to what they are ALLOWED to do. The misconception that when they "left there first habitation", they lost their angelic abilities is absurd. This stems from the perception, that fallen angels are demons. They are NOT!. Demons are directly connected to the nephillim in the scriptures. Their "first habitation" was HEAVEN, now they are confined to HERE (this universe, especially earth). Demons no longer have access to heaven, and furthermore, scripture seems to indicate that demons can NOT FLY! (Matt.12:43, Luke 11:24). The word used in both of those passages in the New Testament, specifically means "walking". Its very important that you understand this, demons are on the "bottom of the totem-pole" . They do not have the same "benefits" so to speak, as they once had.
WHAT'S IN A NAME
There is a tell-tale "mark" if you will, that can be found in the names for the angelic hierarchy. There is the peculiar "im" at the end of most of the names of giant and angel alike. Keep in mind, that the name for the "triune" God is "Elohim" in the Hebrew. Not to confuse God with the Enemy, but this shows a definite linguistic trademark. It is the stamp of "made in heaven". If your still doubting the nature of the nephillim, then you must look at the meaning of their names to get a better picture of what they were. As shown earlier, the term "nephillim" is a generic term designating all the various "tribes". There is a great deal to be learned from the etymology of the names of these things. There were "tribes", and each tribe was distinct. To show the "distinctive" differences between each tribe, we must do a little digging:
Rephaim... -raphah; a giant, dead [Strong's ref. 7497, 7496]
Anakim...- anaqiy; a desc. Of Anak, to choke, necklace [Strong's ref. 6062, '60,59]
Emim...- eymiym; terrors, fright, horror, fear [Strong's ref. 367, '8]
Zuzim...- zuziym; aboriginal tribe, a wild beast [Strong's ref. 2104, '23]
Zamzumim...- zamzom; intriguing, native tribe,to plan, devise evil [Strong's ref. 2157,61]
Horim...- choriy; cave dweller, troglodyte [Strong's ref. 2752]
Zophim...- tsophiym; watchers, to observe, to wait for [Strong's ref. 6839, '22]
Caphtorim...- kaphtoriy; to encircle, origin of the philistines [Strong's ref. 3732, '31,30]
Gammadim...- gammad; a warrior, to grasp, [Strong's ref. 1575, '74]
Seirim...- sayir;devil, satyr, he-goat, hairy [Strong's ref. 8163]
Shedim...- shed; a devil, demon, insolence, waste [strong's ref. 7700, '36]
Nephillim...- nephiyl; a giant, feller, cast down, be judged,fugitive, thrown down, fallen, an abortion [Strong's ref. 5303, '07]
The most interesting of these is the translation for the word"Zophim", This word comes from the root from which we get the word "eyes". This name is also a title of one of the offices of the angelic host, the "watchers" (see Dan.4:17). Put in your head the adjective "observe" in description of the Zophim. Bury this correlation into your brain, because later on you will begin to SEE the light in some bible prophecy I will explain later. Needless to say, all the meanings of these names give somewhat of a descriptive picture of what these things were and about. Ancient Hebrew tradition calls the Anakim the "long-necked ones" (compare with the description of what is known as a "reptilian"). The translation for the word "Caphtorim"shows that the Philistines roots are traced to the nephillim. Goliath was a Philistine, and he was also an Anakim. You will find certain nephillim in scripture that have "six fingers and six toes". Another nephillims weapon and armor are recorded in the bible to have weighed between an estimated 300 to 400 pounds! Another giants "bed" is recorded in the bible as being 21 feet long by 13 feet wide (this is based on the measurement of a cubit, which can not be exactly determined today. I'm basing this measurement on the 27 inch cubit). Ancient Hebrew myths and legends record the nephillim as being 300 feet tall! I'm not kidding. Check it out for yourself. I mean, do these sound like "humans" to you? Lets face it, these THINGS were absolutely NOT HUMAN. We are not just talking about "demon possessed men" here, were talking THING!. God will sometimes relate these to the realm of "men" in scripture, as they were FLESH, but they were NOT human. If anything they were half-human at best, and definitely a MUTATION or HYBRID. Thats what the scripture shows!. In essence, they were (are still?) a "doorway of the physical," from one state ( fallen angel), to another (demon). Nephillim are the least powerful of the hierarchy. They are "confined" to a "house of flesh", which limits their "supernatural" capabilities. I'm telling you, they weren't teaching you everything in Sunday school!. These beings are referred ever so subtly under the text. The Lord (in the "first person") makes this proclamation to affirm the "angelic genetics" of these creatures:
