Howard Pittman, a Baptist minister for thirty-five years, died while on the operating table during surgery and had a near-death experience. He was taken on a tour of the Second Heaven under the protection of an Angel.
In his book “Demons, An Eyewitness” http://www.unleavenedbreadministries.org/demons-pittman.pdf, he describes the complex, hierarchical caste-system society demons live in the second Heaven and how each group of demons is assigned to specific tasks in their area of expertise.
Five groups of demons were emphasized and he was able to observe their activities. One of those are the demons that possess skills in the area of the dark arts, such as witchcrafts, false religion, self-destruction, fear, magic, sorcery, occult, ESP, related psychic phenomena such as healings and miracles, necromancy, speaking with the dead, ghost appearance, aliens, etc.
These highly specialized demons have no problem creating a counterfeit paradise that feels completely, utterly blissful and peaceful.
If God and Jesus live in the third heaven, then the first heaven has to be our earth and the natural creation. The second heaven then has to be a spiritual heaven. Satan is called the prince of the power of the “air” in the Bible. He and his demons work through a dimensional wall from the second heaven into the air, the first heaven. I believe Satan and his fallen angels were cast out of the third heaven where God and Jesus live long before we humans were ever created. Satan had rebelled against God before we were ever created and thus was cast out of the third heaven down into the second heaven. This is why the Bible calls Satan “the prince of the power of the air” Here is the verse that specifically tells us this:
“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience.” (Ephesians 2:1-2)
“The Bible warns that the supernatural world (the second heaven) can make contact with humans if a human gives permission for its entrance. That open door allows the spiritual being (sometimes seen as an angel of light: II Corinthians 11:14) to control whoever submits himself to its spiritual power (Genesis 6: 2 – 4).
Obviously these “heavenly” beings are not God’s ministering angels who only do His bidding for His purposes, but they belong to Satan’s legion, are possessed with his diabolical and rebellious source, and are known as fallen angels, a hierarchy of evil powers and principalities of wickedness “. (Ephesians 6:12). (from Caryl Matrisciana, Out of India, chapter 12).
“ For :such are false apostles, deceitful workers, fashioning themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for the very Satan fashioneth himself into an angel of light. 15 No great thing therefore if his :ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness; whose :end shall be according to their:works.”
