As Rick mentioned and I agree to that we move on in this discussion. So in my studying and gathering more info about demons I come across these connections.
- Demon equakes to spirit, unclean spirit(s), evil spirit(s) and devil(s).
- Unclean is symbolic of Goat, Swine, Frogs, and Lepers.
- Haunts denotes the Deep, Sea, Desert, Tombs and Mountains.
I also noticed that when Jesus spoke of the demons he then related them to unclean spirits and or devils in the KJV. So I gather that these are interchangeable and synonymous with man.
So one passage that deals with demons (unclean spirits) I would like for us to take a deeper look into is from Matthew 12 were Jesus enters the synagogue after his disciples plucked the ears of corn to eat on the sabbath. Jesus then answers the scribes and Pharisees question for a sign. The part I would like to deal with is Matthew 12:43-45
43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
My first thought would be why had Jesus sudden change to speaking about unclean spirits as in answering their question of a sign? But as you read on we come to realize that the disciples wanted to know why Jesus was speaking unto them in parables?(Matthew 13:10) Jesus spoke the parables about Beelzebub and unclean spirits on the same day as He told that of the sower (Mt. 12:46; 13:1). The large amount of parabolic language used that day therefore prompted their question.
So to the meaning behind this parabolic story of the unclean spirits. First we notice that Jesus said to them, "Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation"
Careful reading indicates that 'the unclean spirit' is synonymous with the man, as a deaf demon refers to a deaf man in v. 22 of the same chapter. 'When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places...' Walking through a wilderness and deciding to return to oneís house is clearly language applicable to a man. This is all confirmed by the fact that Jesus is almost certainly alluding to a verse in the Septuagint version ( which was the Bible in common use in Christís time) at Proverbs 9:12 Septuagint version which is omitted. This verse clearly speaks of a man, not a spirit, '(the scorner of instruction) walks through a waterless waste, through a land that is desert, and with his hands garners barrenness'.
The 'spirit' often refers to the attitude of mind (e.g. Dt. 2:30; Prov. 25:28; Is. 54:6; 61:3; Ez. 18:31; Mk. 14:38; Lk. 2:40; 2 Cor. 2:13; 12:18; Eph. 4:23). An 'unclean spirit' may possibly refer to and unclean state of mind, which would fit the context in vs. 34-36. Because, as a man 'thinketh in his heart, so is he' (Prov. 23:7), the spirit would be synonymous with the man. Thus the parable would describe a manís attitude of mind being cleansed and then his going into an even more degenerate state.
The man, representing the Jews, who would not heed the teaching of Christ, walked through 'dry places'. This may recall apostate Israel in the wilderness, who also 'tempted Christ' (1 Cor. 10: 9), thereby refusing to obey the teaching of Moses, who represented Christ (Dt. 18:18). God led Israel 'through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death. This exactly recalls the language of Proverbs 9:12 in the Septuagint - 'through a waterless waste, through a land that is desert...barrenness'. Notice that Israel in the wilderness sought for the 'rest' of the kingdom, but never found it (Heb. 3:11). Similarly, the man in Matthew 12: 43 went through the dry wilderness 'seeking rest, and findeth none'.
The man decided to return to his house. This must have reference to v. 29, spoken shortly before, which says that the strong man of a house must be bound before the contents of his house can be taken away.
Thus the house to which the man returned was empty all the goods of the strong man had been taken away. This may have been symbolized by Jesus cleansing the temple (Mark. 11:15-17). He described the temple to the Jews as 'your house' (Matthew 23:38). The man, representing apostate Israel, would call the temple 'my house'. Christís cleansing of the temple at Passover time would have mirrored the Jewish custom, based on Exodus 12:19, of the firstborn sweeping the leaven from the house. Jesus cleansed the temple, His 'Fatherís house' . Some comments drawn from this source
