The fall of God’s spiritual creation

3. Peter and Jude’s Explanations

Peter and Jude also left us information about fallen angels in the spiritual world. Peter tells us that “God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment." (2 Pet 2:4). Jude also explains this truth: “the angels who did not keep their proper domain…left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness, for the judgment of the great day." (Jude 6). If we compare these two passages, we receive a clear understanding of the fallen angel.

From these two verses, we can see that the angels sinned because they "did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode.” In other words, they disobeyed God, as they failed to maintain their assigned positions as well as to fulfill their duties and responsibilities.

God does not spare a fallen angel. Jude received the revelation and used the expression "He has reserved in everlasting chains” to depict God’s punishment for mortal sins. While the fallen angels await Judgment Day, they will be reserved in everlasting chains in darkness, able to move around in the kingdom of darkness but having no opportunity to be reconciled with God. Before Judgment Day, "darkness" will be their only destiny—in other words, "hell" or the "dark pit." This "hell" or "dark pit" does not refer to the “hell” of eternal condemnation, the "lake of fire burning with brimstone" that will occur after the Judgment Day. Instead, it refers to a kingdom of darkness reserved for fallen angels.

This punishment occurred because Satan was “puffed up with pride” (1 Tim 3:6), and his trick tempted Eve to try to "be like God." These points triggered Satan’s ultimate downfall in the spiritual world.
