Judge every supernatural encounter by the scriptures.

2 CORINTHIANS 11: 14 says, "But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light"
Books and movies have given an erroneous impression about Satan and demons. They most times portray Satan as somebody ugly with dark face and unorganized form. Demons are most times described in a beast form or ugly image. They make us believe that Satan and his demons always operates in the night in a thick bush or under the sea.
They have made us to believe that they always talk in a funny and unclear manner. Movies have given us wrong impression of witches and demons. Some who call themselves deliverance ministers have also misled us by their ignorance.
Due to this deception many people have had supernatural encounters or met beings that they assumed were not demons or Satan because they didn’t appear in that ugly disorganize form as portray in movies. Some of these beings appeared in an atmosphere of light with wings like angels.
Some of these beings appeared in a beautiful and organized manner and sometimes spoke in a beautiful or thunderous way for it to believe as though it was God talking. Some even assumed it was Jesus because the person looks like the so-called image of Jesus in movies and calendars.
The way to prove or test whether an experience or encounter is of God is not the appearance or the nature of the experience. It is the message that was delivered or carried across that determines whether an encounter is of God or not. Satan can appear as an angel of light. He is not always in ugly and fearful form as portrayed in movies.
If the message delivered is contrary to the scriptures, it is not of God even if the encounter happened in a place that looked like heaven among bright beautiful angels. Any such experience must be judged by the scriptures. The message is the proof not the experience. Additional Studies 2 Corinthians 11: 13- 15, Galatians 1: 8, 1 John 4: 1- 4
