If demons are fallen angels, do they have bodies?

HI, Angels we are told in the Bible have bodies, we can conclude that they are similar to ours by the way they are discribed in scripture. For example, the angels at the tomb of Jesus,they are desribed as being in white and giving off the glory and light of the God. Of course they are still in perfect form and without sin. Now if demons are fallen angels, do they have bodies?. As far as demons are concerned, I only can recall them being in spirit form and possessing people or animals such as the pigs. So what do you all think? God bless, Charles

I think God give us 2 "body" 1. The body before sin: body that can connected with God directly(that,s why God didn,t die for Angle / spirit, because they make sin directly to God) , body that can see god freely, can,t die, can,t old. 2. The body after sin: body that we use now/ today , Body that Jesus use when He born to this world(the reason is : God can,t die so He must use sin body to die for us) . I don,t remember what chapter ,so sorry if i have mistake for what i have write but Bible said: when Student sleep , Jesus go to the forest and pray suddenly His body turn so withe and bright , and there was Mose and Abraham.... after that Jesus said to his student don,t tell what you saw just now. (maybe like this sorry i don,t use English bible) So this chapter tell us that another body after this body because flash body is limited , and spirit body is unlimited I am sure they have body , but it,s hard to tell what kind of body they have now

Morning Charles, I'm not an expert on this subject but demons can be a lot of different things in many forms. Most of the demons you and I deal with today are in the form of false information that is stored within our own human brain. This false information is what powers us to think wrong, speak wrong and make the wrong moves. Even the demons spoken of in the Bible must work through our human brains. That is the only possible way they could ever control our bodies in any way. Our bodies are always being totally controlled by our own human brain. All the brain uses to perform this task is Information. This can be information that is stored within our human brain or information we are receiving at that moment. The Angels, voices, visions and other different methods God has used to communicate with man is nothing more than the Holy Spirit of God in a form man can understand. God bless you too Charley.

it depends on how you definite the word 'body'. the word body can meant something of flesh and blood, it can also mean the main mass of a particular object. so when you ask if demons have body, i believe the answer is yes. the body of the demon is the spiritual form. as to how i can possess people and animals, i also have no ideas.

Ooh yeah, demons and angels are one thing that I want to continue studying and learning about even while in college. I don't know a lot, but I'm pretty sure that demons do not have bodies... like flesh like us. They're spirits.. if you refer to Matthew, Mark, or Luke.. they will have a story about Jesus driving out demons that were in certain people. Over the summer, I went to a missions trip and at the training base, I got to know this girl... on the day of prayer, she became possessed by evil spirits (also known as demons.. but they told me that those possessed by demons are more evil and more stronger) But according tot he bible, the definition of demon is evil spirit.. so I mean yeah I would say that they are spirits, very evil ones.
