This runs counter to numerous biblical texts. Furthermore, each angel is a direct creation, that is to say, they did not descend from an original pair as we did; they do not procreate as we do Matt.
Satan, being himself a fallen angel, is not eternal. He is a finite creature. Satan is not the equal and opposite power of God contra dualism. His power is not infinite. He does not possess divine attributes. In sum, he is no match for God! At most, Satan is the equal and opposite power of the archangel Michael. Make no mistake, they are powerful!

The Difference Between Angels, Demons, and Ghosts
In Acts , we read that an angel killed Herod in a most gruesome way. Angels appear in the book of Revelation see especially Rev. We also see that demons can infuse their victims with super-human strength Acts ; Mark and, like the holy angels, can move swiftly through space Dan.
Luke Matthew speaks of a demon seizing a young boy. He is thrown to the ground or into fire or water, together with other violent symptoms. Be it noted, however, that there are several cases in the gospels of blindness or the inability to speak which Jesus heals that are not attributed to demonic influence Matt.
We know that angels are spirit beings in that they are immaterial or incorporeal. The kidnapper is an unnamed assassin who is working under the orders of the Illuminati master "Janus," whose true identity is unknown. Commander Olivetti is killed and the assassin kidnaps Vittoria. Langdon escapes and accosts the assassin at the final element's marker Water but he is unable to save the cardinal. Langdon must complete the Path of Illumination in order to find the assassin and rescue Vittoria. His search leads him to Castel Sant'Angelo which he realizes is the "Church of Illumination": the Illuminati's secret lair.
Under the papal fortress is a tunnel which leads directly into the pope's private library in the Vatican. Langdon frees Vittoria and together they send the assassin falling several hundred feet to his death. The two hurry back to St. Peter's Basilica, where they find that Kohler has arrived to confront the camerlengo in private. Langdon and Vittoria fear that Kohler is Janus and that he has come to murder the camerlengo.
Hearing the camerlengo scream in agony from being branded with the Illuminati Diamond a symbol combining all four Illuminati ambigrams , the Swiss Guards burst into the room and open fire on Kohler. Just before he dies, Kohler gives Langdon a mini video camera containing a video Kohler made while confronting the camerlengo and tells him to give it to the media. With time running out, the Swiss Guard evacuates the Basilica. The camerlengo rushes back in, claiming that he has received a vision from God, who has revealed the location of the antimatter canister to him.
With Langdon in pursuit, the camerlengo ventures into the catacombs and finds the canister sitting atop the tomb of Saint Peter. Langdon and the camerlengo retrieve the antimatter and get in a helicopter with only minutes to spare. The camerlengo manages to parachute safely onto the roof of St. Peter's just as the canister explodes harmlessly in the sky. The crowd in St. Peter's Square look in awe as the camerlengo stands triumphantly before them. Because of this "miracle," the cardinals debate whether to elect the camerlengo as the new Pope.
Langdon manages to survive the explosion using a window cover from the helicopter as a parachute, a trick he learned while touring CERN with Maximillian Kohler and lands in the Tiber River. As Langdon regains consciousness, he finds himself in a hospital located on an island. He is given the video camera which he placed in the pocket of his tweed jacket. He is shocked when he hears the footage and becomes desperate to head back to the Vatican.

The video shows the camerlengo branding himself with the Illuminati diamond and confessing that he himself is Janus, and who set in motion the night's chain of events in order to sabotage the Vatican. He also confesses that he killed the Pope with an overdose of heparin , a powerful anticoagulant because the Pope revealed he had fathered a child. After viewing Kohler's tape, Langdon, Vittoria, and the cardinals confront the camerlengo.
Shortly before the novel began, the Pope met with Leonardo Vetra, who believed that antimatter was capable of establishing a link between science and God.
Angels and Demons
Vetra's beliefs caused great discomfort to the camerlengo. While discussing Vetra, the pope revealed that his support was due to science having given him a son. Read more:. Since you are here….
