I have only heard the story of Michael casting down Lucifer, but not much else.
As for the difference between Angels and Jinn, that helps me to understand Islam a lot better.
I try to be wary of whom I connect with from the other realm, as I seem to be a target of otherworldly entities my whole life. I believe many demons, have tried to influence me before. As well as a few human spirits of people who were just terrible in their former life.
I hear once in a while that Ghosts, and Angels, could be demons (or Jinn) tricking a person. While it interests me, in a dangerous manner I realize, it does help to have these points of view on the matter.
If God created all the Angels long ago before life on Earth (and elsewhere in the cosmos I'd assume)
Can the spirits of man become exalted to Angel status at some point when they pass over? Or were they all created and that's all the Angels there will be?
And do Angels (at least in Christianity's view) still fall from heaven?
Or in another sense, can Angels die?
Thank you again!
You are most Welcome Trenton
Listen, 99% of the paranormal can be explained through the Jinns.
They are made of smokeless fire, remember. They can assume any shape they wish... ghosts, people we thought have died, Virgin Mary apparitions, soothsayers, magic and occult and SO many more... Aliens, UFO's can all be attributed to them.
They even assume animal forms... Old civilizations worshiped Jinns.. who do you think all these sacrifices were made for?? Jinn worship is central to the NWO as well. That worship never ceased btw... Baalbek here in Lebanon (monumental and famous ancient city/temple), just a quick example.. Worship of Baal.
There is no such thing as Ghosts. Once dead, the soul departs this world and will await final judgment. It cannot return back to earth.
Remember Trenton, Angels NEVER disobey God.. they would never make contact with you.
To answer you question... A righteous man can transcend ABOVE the angels. Angels have it easy as they have no desires, lust, greed. They simply listen and obey... So when a man conquers all of these, he will rise above the angels. As our task is way harder than theirs. We do not become angels per se.
Inversely, a wicked man can debase himself lower than demons. Even Satan is not the lower level of Hell.. imagine that.. As there are people who are worse than Satan.
After all what can Satan do? He can simply whisper in your "ear" to prod you for evil... he cannot make you do it.. it boils down to the self and whether the self resists the urge or succumbs to it.
