Is it because they are really not that important? Not necessarily! On the one hand, we learn from the Bible that demons are powerful, evil, and out to destroy us. They should not be taken lightly. But on the other hand, the Bible focuses much more on the things of God, humanity, and how we can enjoy a meaningful relationship with God through Jesus Christ. So perhaps we should conclude that Satan and the demons should never be ignored, but we also should not become preoccupied with them. The majority of our attention should be given to God and knowing Him.
2 Corinthians 4:3–4 Snares/Traps Another way that Satan acts against us is by catching us in one of his traps. He sets a snare for us, just like a hunter with his prey. And the person does not see the danger until it is too late. Once captured, the helpless victim comes under the power of Satan. This is why, for example, Paul urges Christians to be patient with people who disagree with them about Christ. Why? He lets us see what is really going on: Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
We do know, however, that spirits—angels, demons, and God himself—have free access to our world. It appears they can interact in our physical domain any time they choose. The Bible never shows a barrier or roadblock that spirit-beings must overcome to act within the physical universe. They can even invade our bodies, as Satan did with Judas during the Last Supper: “As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him” (John 13:27). The Bible also confirms that Satan and demons have access to our minds and thoughts.
