Revelation 18:2 (a) This type is used to describe the great apostate church and other religious bodies that offer spiritual guidance contrary to the Word of GOD.

There is no opposition to their operation. They are permitted and encouraged to grow in number and in power. These demons are free to do as they wish in these apostate groups.
