The Holy Spirit revealed to me long ago that we are in a war. This was is a spiritual one and it does not matter if you believe in GOD or not…in fact, Satan prefers if you don’t.
The first step there is no way (for us) to fight demonic spirits. So, actually…
The first step is for you to admit that you need Jesus Christ, to believe that when He died on the cross, He paid for your sin, and for you to turn away, have a change of mind about your old life, and your old living – that’s all “repent” means – and ask Jesus Christ come into your life, and forgive you for your sins. And the moment you do that, based on His work on the cross, and His resurrection, He will come in, you’ll be sealed with the Spirit, you’ll be taken from the kingdom of darkness, and be placed in the Kingdom of Light.
This is about those who wonder why GOD would allow HIS children to be attacked, and even possessed.
There will be MANY people who try to convince you that as a believer, you cannot be possessed. This is plainly and simply…not true. Well, that’s misleading because nothing about this war is plain, and nothing about this war is simple.
How and why?
How can we as a believer be possessed? GOD loves three…obviously! We have The Trinity. GOD/JESUS CHRIST/THE HOLY SPIRIT. So, too are we made in this image, for we were made in the image of GOD. So, we have the natural and the supernatural. We are made in two parts. As a matter of fact…recently an article was published about this.
Bright Flash of Light Marks Incredible Moment Life Begins When Sperm Meets Egg
GOD is amazing. And HE proves it…all one need to is wake up to HIS Spirit…The Holy Spirit. This is what that article speaks of! It’s the supernatural entering the natural!
So, we know we are made in two separate manners, coming together to make one. So, the attacking of the mind, body and soul is what demons do. That pretty much said it, right there! Did you catch it? The demon attacks the mind and body. These are both natural. So, we have two entry points, right there. The body and the mind…demons are attracted to people who are in distress, or abused. And this is an entry point for them…let’s say…it makes their job easier. But, the hardest part for them is to enter the soul. That’s the third part of our three point existence here in this dimension. Demons can harass a person for days, month, and even years before they break the person down enough to enter the soul/spirit. There’s a barrier…The Holy Spirit. So, people say well, that person cannot be possessed because the demon cannot possess the same space as The Holy Spirit…and that’s very true.
Demons can attack the flesh and the mind…all day long. We feed the demons energy but our emotions, and actions.
Compulsion to abuse animals or people;
- Sexual perversion and immorality (homosexuality, molestation,etc.);
- A compulsion to abuse your body (drugs, alcohol, gluttony, abuse or misuse of other substances, etc.);
- Seeking spiritual knowledge through Eastern religions and other counterfeit religious groups (TM, Yoga, humanism, etc.);
- Involvement in occult practices (fortune-telling, Satanism, etc.);
- Mental distress or oppression (anxiety, fear, anger, disorientation, etc.);
- Psychological disorders (split and multiple personalities, paranoia, etc.);
- Physical disorders may be demon caused (Matthew 9:32-33);
- Lack of freedom or joy in the Lord (spiritual bondage);
- Inability or constant refusal to repent of sin, though you know you are sinning (rebellion).
So, possessing the soul/spirit is the worst of the worse. It takes work for a demon to accomplish this, but it also is part human effort, or lack there of.
Our acceptance of Jesus Christ in our lives brings forth The Holy Spirit into our soul/spirit. So, for a demon to take possession of that space in our body…the person must have a LACK of faith. This happens because the person has no personal relationship with Jesus Christ, or they have lost their faith…somehow.
If GOD would allow HIS Only Son, Jesus Christ to be tempted by Satan…then what makes us think it won’t happen to us. Notice, I said tempted. Jesus Christ could NEVER be possessed. Jesus Christ was tempted for 40 days and 40 nights. Again, we have the number 3! During this period of time, Satan was allowed to tempt Jesus Christ with three specific temptations.
For most Christians, this first level will be the one they will probably have to face the most from time to time. This first level is when a demon or a group of demons start to attack you from an outside position with no real legal right to be doing so.
So, we’ve established that people can and will be tempted and harassed by demons, even without legal cause to do so.
Demons attacking a person as a result of a legal right enables them to do so because of a sin we’ve committed. Sins have a wide range, do they not? They cover a huge set of grounds and there is NO WAY I could ever cover all of these, but as I did above…I will give a list of some of the reasons why this can happen:
Ouija Board Activity
This activity and others opens a portal or avenue into your mind, or body…and ultimately, you soul/spirit. This is what Job was speaking:
Job 1 (KJV)
As a result of sin in your life, the HEDGE OF PROTECTION around you, your home, and even your family, friends, and possessions, will disappear.
By engaging and crossing over into any direct sins and transgressions that’s expressly forbidden by GOD…you cause a hole to occur. Of course, not EVERY sin can cause this because we are told that we have all fallen short of the Glory of GOD. This is why Jesus Christ came down to die on the cross, to pay the penalty for all of our sins, and to be able to give us forgiveness for our sins. If a demon had a legal right to come after us every single time we sin…none of us would be safe, and a constant state of chaos would ensue.
So, we’ve established that in the actual battlefield, there are certain sins that enable them to engage in a full scale attack, even if we are a believer!
As Christians, we can have absolutely no part in any of the following areas:
1. The occult
2. False religions or cults
3. Any part of the New Age Movement
4. The homosexual lifestyle
5. Any type of Satan worshiping group
6. Any involvement with abortion or the abortion industry
7. Abusing alcohol
8. Doing any type of drugs – including pot
9. Any type of extreme verbal and/or physical abuse on your mate or children
10. Any type of promiscuous sexual lifestyle
11. Any type of criminal activity
13. Bringing a cursed object into your home
So, this is where the whole issue of why people are attacked. If you notice these are ACTIONS which we have committed….not GOD. These are actions we’ve committed against GOD.
If you have drawn demons onto you and your life as a result of engaging in one or more of the above door opening sins, then what you will have to do before you can cast the demons out of your life is that you will have to fully break all of their legal rights.
You will first have to realize that you have been sinning and transgressing against GOD by delving into any of the above areas. Once you have full realization and understanding that these are all unacceptable sins and behaviors before GOD, then you will have to go before GOD, fully confess out each one of the transgressions as actual sins, and then fully renounce each one of them – telling GOD that you will never, ever go back into any of them ever again.
Then once each of these sin areas have been fully confessed and fully renounced before Jesus Christ – then you can turn around, take the authority that GOD has given to you to trample over all the power of your enemy, and cast the demons off of you for good.
Lastly, we also have the fact that demons can attack you as a result of what someone else may have done to you.
Now, I know that sounds crazy…but hear me out.
Some examples of this would be women who have been raped, people who have been ritually abused in Satanic groups, people who have been victims of certain types of crimes and assault, wives who may have been severely physically abused by their husbands or boyfriends, and children who have been severely abused by one or both parents- either physically, verbally or sexually.
What happens in some of these types of extreme cases is that demons, once they see that person being physically violated to this kind of an extreme degree, realize that there might be a hole in that person’s hedge. Once they see that kind of an opening, they will then try and move in to see if they can attach themselves to that person.
What demons are looking for in these kinds of extreme cases is what that person’s response is going to be to the violation. If a woman has been raped, the demons will see if that person will start to exhibit and manifest emotions of hate,anger, bitterness and unforgiveness.
GOD will obviously allow the person to have some of these kinds of emotions right after all of this has occurred as a result of the initial knee jerk reaction most of us would have to this kind of severe trauma. I don’t believe the demons can get a foothold into that person right off. But if that person does not start to work himself or herself out of these kinds of negative emotions over a certain period of reasonable time, then the demons will have something they can attach themselves too, and that something are the negative emotions of hate, bitterness and extreme anger that will settle in that person’s mind, spirit and emotions over a certain period of time. And once the demons attach themselves to those kinds of negative emotions, then they will start to try and work it – trying to increase the frequency and intensity of those emotions.
If a person has drawn demonic activity into his or her life as a result of being the victim of some kind of extreme behavior from another person, then what that person will have to do before they can cast the demons out is to fully forgive the person who has viciously wronged them – no matter how vicious that wrong may have been.
The Bible tells us that whenever we get ready to stand to pray before GOD, that we have to be willing to fully forgive anyone else who has ever trespassed against us – and that will include any vicious criminal who may have raped, assaulted or robbed you, or any violent and psychotic boyfriend or husband who may have physically abused you.
The Bible tells us that if we don’t forgive others who may have trespassed against us, then GOD will not forgive us when we trespass against others. And then to top it off, GOD may not even be willing to hear any of our prayers with the way HE has this particular verse worded – and if HE won’t hear any of our prayers, then you may have little or no chance on getting delivered from any type of demonic attack that may come your way.
The first thing any good deliverance minister will do on these type of cases is to make sure that the person will be willing to fully forgive the person who has seriously wronged them. Until this person is willing to fully forgive his trespassers, the demons cannot be cast out.
The demons have been feeding off of those negative emotions for quite some type and as a result, a mental stronghold has developed in that person’s mind and thinking. To start GOD’S inner healing process, this person has to be willing to fully forgive the person or people who may have hurt them in these more extreme type of cases.
Once the person is willing to fully forgive all of his trespassers in the eyes of GOD, then you can turn around and verbally engage with the demons, telling them that they now have to leave you in the name of Jesus Christ, since all of their legal rights have now been taken away from them since you are now willing to fully forgive your trespasser.
Another very disturbing area in the realm of having to do battle with demonic spirits is the area where demons can sometimes jump from abusive and dysfunctional parents onto some of the children – trying to get some of the children to exhibit and manifest the same aberrant and dysfunctional behavior of their parents.
A perfect example of this would be a severe alcoholic parent. The children grow up seeing and watching their parent live a good portion of their married life in this state. As a result of that parent crossing over into this kind of heavier sin area with GOD, demons will be allowed to come in and attach themselves to the alcoholic parent. And once they attach themselves to the alcoholic parent, they will then look to see if they can targetanyone else in the family to attack.
They might try to get the alcoholic parent to try and abuse their spouse or their own children. They may try and get the alcoholic parent to try and take their own life or possibly kill their spouse or their children.
Again, the children are completely innocent. They themselves are not alcoholic. They have done nothing themselves to draw the demons onto their alcoholic parent. So why would GOD allow the demons to be able to jump onto some of the children to try and get them to do the same thing that they have been able to get the dysfunctional parent to do?
In some of these types of extreme cases, one or two of the children could end up becoming alcoholics themselves. What is happening behind the scenes in the spiritual realm is that the demons will try and get some of the children to move into this same kind of extreme activity, especially as they get older and move into their own marriages.
Demons cannot make you do anything. You always have free will to choose whether or not you will act out on their suggestions and promptings. All demons can do is try and persuade and influence you to cross over into these kinds of extreme realms.
Many children who end up crossing over into some of these same extreme areas are really operating under heavy demonic influence. This is a perfect example of GOD telling us in His Word that His people will go into captivity for having lack of knowledge. Many children are crossing over into the same extreme realms that their parents were walking in as a result of not having the appropriate knowledge to understand what is really going on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm.
Once again, GOD the Father gives us some keen insight from His Word as to why this kind of activity is being allowed to happen in some families. God tells us in His Word that the sins of the fathers can be visited down to 3 or 4 generations of future children.
Here is the verse where God is making this specific statement. This verse is from one of the actual 10 commandments, the second commandment.
Exodus 20 (KJV)
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Notice in this verse that GOD is using the word “visiting”- visiting the sins and iniquities of the father directly onto the children, traveling as far down as 3 or 4 generations of these future children.
What does GOD mean by the word “visiting?”
I believe what GOD may be trying to tell us is that there will be severe consequences for certain types of sins and iniquities committed by parents of children. The Bible tells us that the”wages”of sin will be death.
If the father of a family is an extreme alcoholic, then the family could end up living in a miserable, oppressive and terrible environment. As a result of this kind of severe transgression against GOD, the family could end up living in poverty.
As a result of living in poverty, the children may end up not getting the best education or the better opportunities to progress and grow into what GOD may have been calling them to become in HIM in the first place. As a result of this poor and oppressive environment, some of these children will never find GOD or what His purpose and divine plan would have been for their lives.
Some of them may end up becoming alcoholics themselves. And then they end up repeating everything that their father did in their earlier family life and they in turn then marry, and then do the same thing to their families as their father did to them.
And then they have children, their children see and watch their dysfunctional behavior, and then some of them end up repeating the same behavior as they grow older and move into their own marriages. You thus have the sin of one father being visited down several generations – all because no one knew how to break the curse line that had developed as result of the original sin from the first sinning alcoholic father.
All of this kind of negative activity could perfectly describe what GOD is trying to tell us in this verse. And then to possibly top it off, you have demons who will come in and feed off of this kind of extreme behavior through the alcoholic parent, making everyone else’s life in the family miserable as a result. You walk into these kind of houses, and you can literally feel yourself walking into a dark oppressive cloud.
What happens in this kind of scenario in reference to actual demonic activity is that demons will target some of the children to go after. They will try and attach themselves to the child at an early age and start to try and pull them into this darker way of living. in the first place. As a result of this poor and oppressive environment, some of these children will never find GOD or what His purpose and divine plan would have been for their lives.
If that child is a born-again Christian, they will try and sever the child’s personal relationship with GOD. They will attack their mind, their emotions and their sense of self-confidence and self-esteem. Many of these children grow up with low levels of self-esteem and self-confidence as a result of all the verbal abuse they have had to put up with from the dysfunctional parent or parents.
When the child gets old enough to leave the home, the demons will follow the child and will still try and stay attached to them. I have personally run across several woman who had demons following them into their adult life and literally attacking them on a periodic basis. They would then command the demons to leave them in the name of Jesus Christ, but that would only work for a short period of time, and then the demons would come back for additional attacks.
What is happening in the spiritual realm behind the scenes is that the demons apparently have developed enough of a legal right to stay attached to that child as a result of the sins and transgressions of the original sinning parent. What the demons have now formed out as a result of the original parent’s severe transgressions against GOD is a curse line between that parent and the child.
What this now means is that before you can cast the demons out and off of you for good – you will first have to fully break the curse line that the demons have been feeding and operating on over all of those years from living with the original sinning parent.
The Battle Command
For those of you who are either battling the possibility of demons harassing and tormenting you or if you should ever run across this problem anytime in your future – here is a good, simple battle command that you can use to cast the demons off from you. This type of battle command is for demons who are attacking you from the outside.
However, if you have demons living and operating on the inside of you, then you may have to seek out someone who knows how to do an actual inner deliverance, since the demons have some type of legal right in which to continue to remain on the inside of you. You will need help in handling this kind of deeper problem.
But for those of you who may be dealing with a demon or a group of demons who are just tying to test you out and trying to attack you from the outside without any real legal right to be doing so – this type of battle command should easily do the trick for you in getting them out and off of you.
Remember – you don’t have to become a punching bag for these demons and allow them to mentally harass and torment you. You can drive them off of you very easily and very quickly by taking up your Sword – which is the Word of GOD – and verbally speak out loud to them that they now have to leave you in the name of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
You will have to say this battle command out loud as demons cannot read your mind or your thoughts. I would also hold out your right hand when speaking out this battle command. The right hand of GOD is HIS hand of deliverance and power. As a born-again believer and representative of GOD, you have the legal right and authority to be able hold out your right hand while operating under His authority, power and anointing when engaging with the dark side.
Here is the battle command. Feel free to add any additional words that will fit the specific situation you may be dealing with. Also be sensitive to any specific words the Holy Spirit will want to give you when you start to engage with the demons. You may also want to consider writing this out on an index card so you can have it readily available should you ever have to face this kind of battle situation.
“If there are any demons that are attempting to attack, harass or torment me – I am now coming against each and everyone of you in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am now coming against each and everyone you operating under the full power, anointing and authority of GOD the Father and Jesus Christ.
In the name of Jesus, I now Plead the Blood of Jesus Christ against each and everyone of you. I repeat, I now Plead the Blood of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ against each and everyone of you.
In the name of Jesus Christ – I now command you to leave me right now, and you are to never, ever come back on me again. GO NOW – in the name of Jesus Christ! I repeat – GO NOW in the name of Jesus Christ!”
By making this kind of statement right at the very beginning with them – you are showing them that you are not attempting to come against them in your own power or in your own natural strength. You are letting them know right off that you are coming directly against them operating under GOD’S power and authority – not under your own power and authority.
If you can’t see, admit and realize that you have been sinning, and that you have been wrong by crossing over into some of these forbidden areas to begin with – then there will be no deliverance, and the demons will continue to have the appropriate legal rights to be able to stay attached to you and they will continue to tear you and your life to pieces.
For those of you who would like to try and handle this on your own as a self-deliverance – especially if you cannot find anyone locally to help you out – here are the 5 basic main steps that you will need to do in order to be able to get complete and total victory and deliverance from these demons.
I will first list each one of these steps, one right after the other, so you can see exactly what you will have to do. Here are the 5 steps.
- The full surrender
Submitting to GOD means you have entered into this full surrender with HIM. You have to be willing to fully surrender every part of your being to HIM – body, soul and spirit, along with your entire life over to HIM.
James 4 (KJV)
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
The next step to be able to receive total deliverance from these demons is that you are going to have to be willing to admit that what you wereinvolved in were sins and transgressions against GOD in the first place – and then you will have to be willing to fully confess out each one of these transgressions as actual sins before GOD.
- Renounce each one of your sins before GOD
The next step, in addition to being willing to fully confess out each one of the transgressions as sins, is that you will now have to be willing to fully renounce each one of these sins before GOD. When you renounce each one of these sins before GOD – what you will now be telling GOD is that you will never, ever go back into any of these heavy sin areas ever again. Before you decide to go before GOD for your deliverance, you will first have to make sure that you really want to be set free from your sinful past, and that you will do everything you possibly can in your own natural power not to go back or fall back into any of these heavy sin areas ever again.
One word of caution in this area! Once you make up your mind to fully renounce any of these types of heavier sins before GOD – you will have to make sure that you never, ever fall back into these same areas again. What will happen if you do is that not only will you give these demons another legal right to be able to come back after you – but these demons that will be coming back after you will be demons that will be 7 times more wicked and evil than what the original demons were that had attached to you in the first place.
- Break the legal rights of the demons
Once you have fully confessed and fully renounced each of these heavier sin areas before GOD – then you have just taken away all of the legal rights that the demons had to stay attached to you. Now you are ready to break those legal rights.
5. Verbally command the demons to leave now
Once you have fully confessed and fully renounced each of the sin areas you had been involved in, and then have fully broken the legal rights of the demons before GOD – then the last thing that will remain will be you turning around and verbally engaging with the demons – telling them that they no longer have any more legal rights to stay attached to you and that they will now have to leave you in the name of your Savior Jesus Christ.
You will have to verbally do this. Demons cannot read your mind or your thoughts – so you will have to verbally, out loud, command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ. Again, I will show you how to word this part of the prayer in the battle prayer I will give you below.
Prayer to Break Legal Rights of the Demons
Father, In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, I now approach Your throne in a time of great need, in time of an extreme emergency.
Father, as You already know, I have demons attacking me from the outside, and possibly from the inside of my being. I know why they are in my life. I have done some really bad and evil things in my life. I have horribly transgressed against both You and all of Your basic laws and commandments with the sins that I have personally committed against You.
Father, I first want to say to You that I am so sorry for doing all of these bad and evil things against You. There is no excuse for the kind of behavior that I have exhibited. But Father, I now want to take a strong stand. I do not want any more part of this kind of wicked and evil lifestyle. I know that You are My only hope and My only salvation to be able to deliver me from the demonic bondage I now find myself enslaved in as a result of crossing over into these kinds of heavier sins.
Father, I ask that You please have mercy on my soul, and that You please forgive me for all of the sins and atrocities that I have personally committed against You under the blood that Your one and only Son Jesus Christ has personally shed for me on the cross.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I now want to formally confess out all of the bad, evil and sinful things I have personally done against You.
Father, I now know, without any shadow of a doubt, that all of the above activities were heinous sins and abominations in your sight. I am so sorry for going this far against You.
Father, I know that Your Son Jesus Christ has died for all of my sins. Father, in the name of Jesus, I now ask that You please forgive me for every single one of the these sins and transgressions that I have personally committed against You. Let the Blood of Your Most Holy Son Jesus Christ completely wash away every ounce of stench, every ounce of each one of these sins that have been committed against You.
Father, you tell me in Your Word, that if I am willing to confess my sins and agree to repent, that You will forgive me of my sinsand cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Father, I now ask that You please forgive me for of all of my sins that I have personally committed against You through the blood that Your Son Jesus Christ has personally shed for me on the cross. I now believe that all of my sins have been completely forgiven and completely washed away by the Blood of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ – I now fully break and fully sever each one of these legal rights. Father, I repeat, in the name of Jesus Christ, I now command that every inch and every single part of this legal right line be completely broken, completely severed, and completely demolished in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I now plead the Blood of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ against each and every single part of this legal right line and command it to be completely broken right now in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ:
I now plead the Blood of Jesus Christ over my entire spirit.
I now plead the Blood of Jesus over my entire soul.
I now plead the Blood of Jesus over my entire body.
I now plead the blood of Jesus over this entire house.
I would say this prayer out loud 3x-4x over the next couple of days.
