The world was ruled by ancient Greek/Roman Gods which are daemons: (1Cor. 10:20) “But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God…”.
Once jesus came and taught his students how to overcome them. Saints ascended to the heaven and brought them down: (Jn. 16:33) “I have overcome the world”, (1Jn. 2:13) “I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one”, (1Jn. 2:14) “I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God stays in you, and you have overcome the wicked one.”, (1Jn. 4:4) “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”, (1Jn. 5:4) “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.”, (Rev. 3:21) “To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”, (Rev. 12:10-12) “… for the accuser of our brothers is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.”
Now saints are gods.
What should we conclude from this? I am not yet sure.
