    Signs in the Bible - but that have not already happened

    Rev 13
    11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. 12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who live on it worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of the sky to the earth in the presence of people. 14 And he deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who live on the earth to make an image to the beast who *had the wound of the sword and has come to life. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause all who do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And he causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 and he decrees that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.

    Rev 16 - demons spirits like frogs going out to the rulers of the nations.

    All that is future-ish... Although the DOD is now starting to report encounters with UFO/UAP that they had been hiding in the past. So "expect to see more" on that topic in the future.

    It's important to always remember: The devil is a liar.

    Anyone who attributes god-like power to the devil or his demons is treading dangerous ground.

    Again: The devil is a liar. That's what he does. Lie.

    Could she actually divine the future? This would imply that the devils have the power to know the future. Is there a reason to believe they can?

    Or, rather than this poor girl being able to actually tell the future, the devils are liars, tricksters, charlatans; and a poor girl a victim to the lies and deceptions of devils; and her masters used her for selfish gain. That she was possessed is certain, that the devils knew who Paul and his companions were and thus used her to harass the Apostles is also there in the text. That she was used to make money by her masters is also in the text. A victim of diabolical and human suffering, used by wicked demons and men to deceive and trick the gullible.

    I just don't think she actually had the power to know the future; I simply don't believe any creature can actually know the future before it happens.

    God alone is Omniscient.

    A familiar spirit (demon) is used to impersonate Samuel in 1 Sam 28 and predict for Saul that tomorrow Saul will die.

    1 Chron 10:
    13 So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the Lord, because of the word of the Lord which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it, 14 and did not inquire of the Lord. Therefore He killed him and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.

    So how did the demon know that this act of going to demons to contact the dead (punishable by death under the Laws God had for His people) would result in God NOT protecting Saul in the battle on the next day? Well... the demon had a pretty good idea that such an insult to God would no result in "more divine protection".

    The Bible calls Satan "the god of this world" 2 Cor 4:4 - even in the Matt 4, and Luke 4 temptation of Christ the devil makes that same claim as God's Word makes for him in 2 Cor 4:4.

    Having that level of control on a certain number of variables in this life - helps him make some accurate predictions.

    Nope. And we're not going down that rabbit hole.
