Gods messenger’s, and many if not all people, many of them are so paying penance for their sins which they commmited when living in the body here on earth. And these are those who are looked upon as evil spirits as they suffer/carry out their penance, and their taskes are awarded unto them by the way of subordinate’s of God.
But who are these spirits? they could be anybody who led a life of commitimg all kinds of miss demeeners unto other people, and will not accept that they have even when they lived in the body on earth, and when they leave the body and transmute into the spirit.
It matters not what kind of sins they have committed they will suffer as long as they do not ask for forgiveness, what kind of sin, hurting another person upon which ever level they did so. Religious or not, and it is futile asking god for forgiveness and commiting sin again. Also the gergy, no matter who they are can offer forgiveness but in the eyes of God this is futile thus will be ignored by God.
Therefore one needs to restrain their ways of many situations causing pain unto others no matter whether by word or deed. Therefore think before you decry anyone more so Gods messengers, because if you do then upon your head be it, maybe you are in the physical body or in the spirit your paying penance might last for ever, and if you are awarded this you may be sent to earth as the spirit of yourself and work in any ward of life and you will be hated by the person you have been allotted to until you accept your sinfull ways and change for the better, which God wants you to do.
And as you continue your work you may be looked upon as being an evil spirit. so tread carefully because you might be there for eternity.
