Note 1. - "Beside his own dark influence, the Scripture discloses to us the fact that Satan is the leader of a host of evil spirits or angels who share his evil work, and for whom the 'everlasting fire is prepared.' . . . One passage identifies them distinctly with the 'devils' who had power to possess the souls of men. . . . They are mostly spoken of in Scripture in reference to possession; but in Ephesians 6:12 they are described in various lights as 'principalities,' 'powers,' 'rulers of the darkness of this world,' and 'spiritual powers of wickedness in heavenly places'; and in all as 'wrestling against the souls of men.'" - Smith's "Dictionary of the Bible," article "Satan."

Note 2. - "The facts of history concur with the statements of revelation in forcing upon us the unwelcome conviction that the human race is subject to the malevolent influence of an organized and all-pervading demonism. Alike in the career of nations and in the phenomena of personal destiny in presence of demonical skill and power is often prominent, frequently dominant, always evil." - E. A. Stockman in "Footprints of Angels in Fields of Revelation."
