As Halloween approaches, chatter and debate about the spiritual world will certainly intensify. Ironically — but perhaps not too surprisingly — it’s a good time for Christians to focus not only on building up their own faith amid these discussions, but also on helping others understand what the Bible tells us about the spiritual realm.
Luckily, The Bible Project released a fascinating video series on this very topic, diving into what the Bible says about angels, demons and related spiritual matters.

“The biblical authors want us to see another set of characters, the inhabitants of the heavenly realm who are also heavily involved in this earthly story,” reads a description of the series. “For lots of different reasons, many modern readers of the Bible don’t notice these characters or don’t know what to make of them.”
This introduction to the series dives into the basics of creation and the spiritual realm:
Another video in the series differentiates between the cherubim and the angels, revealing the differences between these spiritual beings. Cherubim are described as “hybrid creatures” that “stand guard at the boundary between heaven and Earth.”
And the video makes some important clarifications about the images of angels we often see in contemporary art.
“Angels in the Bible don’t have wings,” the video proclaims. “Angels are often mistaken for people because they look like us — just a bit more impressive.”
Another fascinating video in the series dives into Satan and demons, covering the devil’s emergence in Genesis 3 as a “creature who’s in a state of rebellion against his creator.”
