This source confirms yet again that many African groups are monotheistic peoples who believe in the Supreme Being whose characteristics match those of Yahweh of the Bible. Primarily it is the West African people groups who believe in the concept of “divinities” who are lesser than the Supreme Being. These “divinities” can be equated to angels, demons, hosts, and principalities that are of spoken of throughout the Bible and the heavenly order that is spoken of throughout Scriptures (Deuteronomy 32:8-9). These “divinities” can also be the spirits of those have departed (1 Samuel 28:13). The concept of “arch-divinities” can be equated to being biblical, as well. For example, Orisa-nla of the Yoruba people can potentially be equated to Jesus Christ in the Bible because Orisa-nla is considered to be the Deity’s son and deputy just as Jesus Christ in the Bible is the Son of God and He sits at the right Hand of God. Spirit possession, prophets, and exorcist exist in West African people groups just like they do in the Bible. The concept of “guardian spirits” can be equated to angels spoken of in the Bible.
