Baal and Ashtoreth

In respect to the idea of demons, spirits, and other such things: they exist.

There are an unimaginable amount of spirits roaming around this world. Some are good, some are neutral, and some are very wicked. In regards to the wicked spirits, there are seven that have immense power and have been worshipped since the time of the Old Testament. I’ve taken to calling these seven the “Earth Spirits.”

The two most prominent (besides Satan), are Baal and Ashtoreth:

Baal – the spirit of anger, hate, and sacrifice.
“And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might see the utmost part of the people” (Numbers 22:41). 

Ashtoreth – the spirit of lust and desire.
“For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites” (1 Kings 11:5).

Thank you for reading, and may Jesus Christ be with you.
