Bible verses about Earth as Habitation of Angels
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Luke 10:17-18

Like a great lightning bolt streaking out of the sky, this brilliant angel, shining with all of his glory—glory given to him by God—was cast to the earth. Where did he fall? He fell right where we are, to the earth, and now we have to deal with him.

Satan (Part 1)


 

1 Peter 3:20

Revelation 12:7-9 shows the demons cast down, and when that occurred, this earth became their prison. Job 1:6-7 describes Satan as free to walk back and forth on it. It is not said that every demon spirit has that liberty; they may or they may not. Nevertheless, they are able to be restrained.

Image and Likeness of God (Part 3)


 

Jude 1:6

"Who did not keep their proper domain" can also be translated, "who did not keep their positions of authority." It shows that God assigned them a stipulated responsibility, a set place, but they left it. The set place was on the earth. They mounted an attack against God in heaven. Defeated, they were cast down to earth, and the place that they were originally given as their domain instead becomes a prison, a place of restraint (Revelation 12:3-4,9; II Peter 2:4).

Satan (Part 1)


 

Jude 1:6

This is one of a series of three examples that Jude uses to show the surety of God's judgment falling upon sinners (those who are committing sin as a way of life). The angels left their first estate or their place of habitation. Habitation refers either to a place of living or of responsibility. In this case, it refers to both. We have to recognize that their habitation was the earth. This is where they lived and the place they were responsible for.

Revelation 12:9

This verse brings Jude 6 around full-circle. We know the demons left their first estate on earth and were cast right back to it—the earth. Now they are here, and they are desperately trying to hang on to it, fighting against us and deceiving everyone on earth (Revelation 12:9)—the primary characteristic, the very thing God warns us about at the beginning of the book: The Serpent is the most cunning of all creatures (Genesis 3:1).
