The subject of familiar spirits is very in-depth; I won’t be going that deep with the subject. I will get straight to the point. The Word of God is living and active and sharper than ANY two edged sword and pierces as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Heb. 4:12
God has laid out a complete outline of how the Word of God judges our thoughts and the intents OF OUR HEART.
God loves YOU so much that as a Father He wants to insure your safety; He does so by warnings many times. He clearly lays out in His Word what NOT TO DABBLE in. He tells His beloved; YOU; how to keep yourself free. If you CHOOSE to disobey the Word you WILL pay the consequences until you repent and ask Him to forgive you and then go the other direction and read His Word to renew your mind again to the truth that is found in it.
V. 9 When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall NOT LEARN to imitate the detestable things of those nations.
V.10 There shall NOT be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses DIVINATION, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,
V.11 Or one who cast a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.
V.12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of the detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you.
Many people have read the Harry Potter series, and would argue that they are okay to read; yet many of those people are battling demonic spirits now and have NO idea why this is happening. The truth is that they have opened the door the devil himself by getting involved in this series. If you truly want to be free from the demonic torment that you are experiencing; REPENT! Ask God to forgive you for rebelling against His Law of Love. You see Love disciplines. God doesn’t tell you NOT to do something to keep you from having fun. He does it because He KNOWS WHAT IS AHEAD, that you can’t see!
People in the church have argued that the scriptures that I just quoted are in the old testament. But the truth is, that God said, “heaven and earth will pass away but My Word will NEVER pass away.” God IS His Word according to John 1:1 and His Word does NOT CHANGE. He is the SAME yesterday, today and forever.
I recently spoke with someone about deliverance. This person said, that they wanted to go through deliverance and then a little bit later said (during our conversation) that they hadn’t been reading the Word. I warned this person that to go through deliverance is good; “IF” YOU’RE READING THE WORD, but IF you’re NOT READING the Word DO NOT go through deliverance. They asked why and I shared a few verses with them.
Matthew 12:43-45 (NASB)
V.43 Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and doesn’t not find it.
V.44 Then it says, “I will return to my house from which I came:; and when it comes, it finds it UNOCCUPIED, SWEPT, AND PUT IN ORDER. (this means that God cleaned this person through and through and there is nothing of the enemy left in them. You must immediately FILL THE VOID that was created by the deliverance with God’s Word.)
V.45 Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will ALSO be with the evil generation.
The point I’m making here is that IF you go through deliverance because of tormenting spirits; DON’T GO BACK to Egypt (sin) because you will open the door again ONLY THIS TIME it will be ALOT more difficult to get free. You must guard your heart by reading the Word of God.
When I was a baby Christian I experienced something that baffled me. Within one year I had made three different “QUICK FRIENDS” that DIDN’T KNOW EACH OTHER. They ALL started with this comment when they met me, “I was DRAWN to you; there is just something about you.”
I was BEST FRIENDS with each of them (I met them ALL at different times of this particular year) for THREE WEEKS. EVERYONE OF THEM said the SAME THING TO ME…they ALL SAID, “You’re NOT TEACHABLE and won’t listen to anybody” then walked out of my life. I was devastated. I went to MY FATHER; God; to ask Him to forgive me and said, “IF I’M THIS WAY, please CHANGE ME”…
ONE WEEK LATER (in ALL THREE relationships) each one came to me to apologize and said the same thing, “Please forgive me, I ONLY SAID THAT TO HURT YOU; IT’S NOT REALLY TRUE” God vindicated me…but it still hurt… I didn’t understand so I talked to my spiritual Mom about it. She said, “I KNOW WHAT THAT IS; that’s a “familiar spirit.”
Anytime a spirit repeats something and the people don’t know each other, but say exactly the same things, it’s a familiar spirit sent to harass you to push you down.
God has specifically trained me in spiritual warfare and there are things I KNOW; things that I can see in the spirit realm; AND things I’ve experienced in the natural that are unexplainable; BUT COMPLETELY make sense in the unseen world. Remember, that we do NOT wrestle with flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness and spiritual WICKEDNESS in the heavenly places. Eph. 6:12
What are you dealing with that you don’t understand? Go to Father God and ask Him to show you, ask Him to deliver you and fill yourself up on His Word. His Word is TRUE food.
Hold on to God’s hand and NEVER let go. He will guide you; but YOU have to ask Him.
