The Principalities and Powers: Disobedient Heavenly Hosts

The “principalities” and “powers” which Paul so often mentions in his letters have as their Old Testament background the rebellious “Sons of God”, those divine beings who were allotted to the Gentile nations. God’s election of Israel initiated his plan of redeeming the Gentile nations and reclaiming them from those evil, supernatural powers.
Scripture: Hebrews 1:14, Deuteronomy 4:19, 2 Kings 17:6-18, Acts 7:39-43, Genesis 11:1-9, Deuteronomy 32:7-9, Psalm 82.
