Question: Is the doctrine that teaches the 'flesh of Christ' is heavenly (not from the dust) a demonic doctrine? If so,why do demons mightily shudder, cry and leave the believers at baptism (water baptism)?

Answer: There seems to be no connection between your first question and your second. As for your first question: the doctrine that Jesus Christ had heavenly flesh rather than human flesh is an error and a dangerous heresy. As for your second question: we are not aware of any verses in the Scriptures that indicate that demons shudder, cry, and leave believers at baptism. Acts 8:5-7 says, 'Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. 6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.' It says nothing about people being baptized until verse 12.
