Plagued by Incubus and Succubus Spirits at Night

Plagued by Incubus and Succubus Spirits at Night


The definitions came from Webster's Dictionary.

INCUBI - Demonic sexual attack on females; may be caused by sexual sins, witchcraft spells, curses of lust, inherited curses, can attack children

SUCCUBI - demonic sexual attacks on males, may be caused by the same as Incubi above

Those attacking females are called incubus and those concentrating on males are called the succubus. These are vicious sexual spirits which can molest and torment susceptible individuals. Most attacks are at night and the person its awakened by fondling hands, caressing hot lips and tongue, and other forms of lust inducing stimulation. Every kind of abnormal and deviate sexual experience can be generated by these evil spirits which are unclean spirits.

These demons cruelly torment their victims to satisfy their filthy cravings. Some people have told us that they get to the point they are afraid to go to sleep at night. Their days are filled with shame and they feel everyone knows what they do. They have no hope of escape. Many consider suicide and a good number carry it out. Some of these demons have been loosed on these helpless people by curses from their ancestors, and some by their own sins.

What opens the doors to these spirits:

Masturbation would open the door;

Sexual abuse would open the door;

Even with small children who masturbate, there most often is sexual sin or victimization somewhere in the generations, etc. Ask the Lord to show you the open door - many times the door is open to masturbation when the house is out of order.

Pornography can open the door either in magazines or internet;

If you have watched movies that are trashy - full of sex, then that can open the door to these vicious evil spirits which can make you feel unclean.

Once you know what the open door is in your life to bring in sexual spirits or we could say unclean spirits that are causing this, then repent and renounce for yourself, for your generations on both sides of your family back 4 generations back. Cast out the unclean spirits, spirits of shame and guilt (tell the spirits they have no legal right because you have repented for them) that have come in through you or through your generations.

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse, then forgive the people that violated you, forgive yourself for participating even if you are innocent. It closes the door on accusation from the enemy on you. Also, make sure you are not mad at god for this happening.

If this does not help, then definately seek the Lord for more answers.

Prov. 26:2 a curse causeless cannot come. That means if all doors are shut, then it has no legal right to you. If you have or your generations have opened the door and they have not repented for their sins, then it has legal right to bring torment. When renounced in your generations (generational curses), it should close the doors and breaking curses.

Incest and Rape - What Comes In Spiritually to Steal Your Peace

Incest and Rape - What Comes In:


Any experience of sexual abuse is an open door to just about everything (bitterness, accusation, rejection, unloving spirits, fear, unclean spirits, shame and guilt, rejection, spirit of self pity, self-hatred, etc.). What comes in from those experiences is fear and bitterness toward the perpetrator and self. But in addition is the roll over of unclean, unloving spirits from the perpetrator onto the victim. And the occult may be involved in the perversion. You got to get the person to forgive the perpetrator. If they don't they will continue to have mental torment and harassment over the event. Matthew 18 is very clear that if we do not forgive, then you are thrown in the dungeon of torment.

The victim has shame and guilt and blames themselves for what has happened. It comes with the territory and includes self bitterness. Plus the unclean, unloving spirit (self-hatred) sets you up in life to be a victim again. Speaking about the perpetrator, they almost always, (I suppose there can be exceptions), have sexual abuse and perversion in their background, in the generations.

Usually when a person has been raped or lived through incest, they suffer from a wounded spirit. Father God wants to heal your heart. It is hard for a person who has been raped to receive God's full forgiveness because of the false responsibility. It is a lying spirit blaming you but it is not true.

The way to get rid of the guilt and shame, self accusation and a spirit of self pity is to have the victim repent for their participation in an unclean sexual act even though they did it against their will. The reason for doing this is to legally close the door on Satan so that he can no longer accuse you and make you feel shame etc. Now Father God certainly knows you were a victim and He does not hold you responsible, but the devil will use it to torment you so we want to close the door . And if he comes back after that, you can say that it is under the blood. I repented for that already.

Use Matt. 18:6-7 for this and this is one time he prefers the NIV.

Also if the perpetrator is a family member and there is sexual sin in the generations, the victim can take responsibility for the family sin (generational curses) and renounce it in the generations and ask that the generational curse of it be broken. And of course the bitterness and unforgiveness and rage toward the perpetrator must be dealt with first.

And you need to take authority over the mimes and break their power so that the memory of it will not stir you up every time you think of it. And if you can't get it out of your mind then also break the programming that would take you back to that experience.

Jezebel Spirit

Manipulation, Control, Intimidation, Domination - Jezebel Spirit

Free: Two Half-Day Spiritual Warfare Dallas Ministry Conference





Jezebel Spirit and/or Matriarchal /Patriarchal Witchcraft (Manipulation and Control of others) - Learn how to defeat the jezebel spirit

Learn how it effects your children (such as learning disabilities) and your home when a woman is controlling the household.

Even though I refer to her (men can have this spirit as well if they use intimidating, manipulation and control with burst of anger to get everyone to submit or get their way).

The Jezebel spirit is born of witchcraft and rebellion. It is an occultism spirit operating in someone's life since they need to know and need to be in control of themselves and others instead of trusting God.

When someone gets involved in occultism such as such as divination, the need is to be in the know and wants to control their destiny. This Jezebel spirit is a very common spirits in operation today, and is a powerful enemy of the body of Christ. It brings destruction and death to people as well as division. Not a physical death but death to vision, death to purpose, death to God's calling, etc.

Jezebel is a person that has to be on top and when someone has gifting's, it becomes jealous and will do anything to shut you down. If it can, this person, operating in Jezebel, will even control who can be in your life and the friends you are allowed to have but most likely none. They want you to meet their need and are not in your life to meet your need. It might seem that way but they are truly selfish and very jealous people who are looking for an identity of power.

Any behavior not of Christ Character - negative and destructive to self or others, then here is an antichrist spirit operating in a person's life.

Jezebel masquerades as a "protector" spirit to gain access, using the inroads already made by spirits of rejection and fear. When a person has rejection with fear, then a person will try to control their lives and control others to be in control. The person with matriarcle witchcraft has a fear of being out of control. Fear drives this spirit into manipulation and control of others or self! They usually have high goals that are unreachable and they are hard on themselves or others if the goals are not reached.

If you work for a Jezebel type person, they are impossible to please. Everything you do, even in excellence, will not satisfy them. It is never enough or good enough in their eyes.

discerning jezebel spirit

Why do you think people fall into occult practices or modalities. They need to control their destination. They need to be in the know which is the same reason Eve feel because Satan provided her something to give her more knowledge. The story of Adam and Eve is the first example of matriarchal witchcraft in the Bible. Adam listened to his wife and did what she wanted instead of obeying God. It is not godly order. And God gave out punishment for their behavior. Because of Christ we now are able to break the curse off. Thank you Lord, for grace and mercy.

Like I said earlier, there is a spirit of deep rooted rejection operating in them. People, who are Jezebel's have this spirit but they are not this person. They are fortified and trapped in their own rejection of pain.
Because of that deep rooted rejection in their lives, many times, a person (man or female) will try to gain identity, glory, recognition, power, and satisfy the need for acknowledgment of worth from others (in other words, the "praises of men" Matt. 6:2,5,16). Our identity comes from the Lord but they look to people to meet their needs by controlling to get their important to create an identity.

This is an outgrowth of the desire for love and self-worth we all have - with the wrong focus - self. So, there is an unloving spirit operating as well. An Unloving spirit is an antichrist spirit to put yourself on the throne.

Second, the Jezebel spirit seeks to emasculate all men, or divest them of their authority and power over others. It fosters a distrust and/or hatred of men in general, and nurtures motives of vengeance on the victim toward some men in particular - usually as a result of abuse or neglect by a significant male in the victim's life. Most of the time, because of their strong personality, will become Ahab to have peace with them.

A Jezebel has a hard time trusting any person or anyone (even God) and so they feel they have to control others and their destiny. They are threatened when someone shows independence from them. Fear rises up and the spirit of the antichrist tells them they are loosing control. When that happens the abuse comes into play.

Household Out of Order

They represent the ungodly order that Satan has set up in mankind. We have also learned that this is occultism because it obscures the real thing the Godhead established and declared to be so in the creation of all things including governmentally and familial. Ahab representing the passive male rebelling or refusing to take his place as the king or ruler and abdicating it to his wife. Within this occultic framework is a lot of manipulation. Just a lot of bad fruit.

Spirits that manifest?

Leviathan: Demonic Ruling Prince promoting Luciferian Rulership through Arrogance, Pride, and Ungodly Authority.......

Behemoth: Religious Principality that takes truth and changes it....the Principality behind all Legalism, False Religions, and Deception of Truth. Also these Principalities work with lesser evil spirits to cause even christians to be the "knowing ones".....found deeply rooted in the misuse of the prophetic movement and can be seen in rigid legalistic movements...typically...a spirit of religion...and error ...also can be found operating in people who try to control others in the name of truth, as opposed to proper ecclesiastical leadership.

Scriptures about Godly Order

1 Cor 11:3 "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." (KJV)

The head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Three headships in 1Cor. 11:3:

1. God is head of Christ.

2. Christ is head of man.

3. Man is head of woman -- husband is the head of the wife.

The head of Christ is God. God and Christ are two separate and distinct persons (1 Tim. 2:5).

1 Tim 2:5 "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (KJV)

Three main personality types of the Jezebel Spirit:

The high-profile type is generally gregarious, outspoken and highly visible. She or he is often seen as the one who wears the pants in the family.

The low-profile type is just that--generally soft-spoken, giving the illusion of being solicitous, protective, even very submissive. The low-profile type may be the most dangerous, as is the most difficult to discern. The Jezebel relies heavily on manipulation for her power, but it is extremely subtle.

This can be a husband that believes he has to control through violence, screaming to get others to submit to their authority. They use intimidation and intimidation to get their way or to control others. As you can see this spirit is very self-centered because it is all about him. There is usually self hatred operating. If they hate themselves, how can they love their wives?

Within these three types are two manifestations: the SEDUCER and the FRIGID. The SEDUCER uses any type of seduction available to gain control and power, as a method of manipulation. There is a tri angling of alignment with one person with the goal of controlling another person and/or building your own power through a spirit of seduction to seduce others to get their way – to gain control, to climb up the ladder for their importance and to gain an identity.

The FRIGID Jezebel personality can frequently be seen as the efficient (and often plain) executive assistant at the side of a powerful businessman or church leader. This Jezebel often lacks a gregarious personality, but may be very outspoken and aggressive.

Manifestations of Jezebel:

Usually a person with a Jezebel spirit has several spirits operating in them - read the characteristics and how they work:

Insecurity (Unloving and Rejection Principalities)– They are very insecure but their demeanor will show they are confident and very strong.

Fear (their are about 4000 different types of fears) – A Jezebel has fear of loosing control, fear of being controlled by others but also has a fear of man, fear of failure, fear of rejection (even though the enemy sets them up to be rejected over and over again). They are fearful of being out of control. This might have come from abuse when they were young when they suffered abuse and felt out of control and made a judgment that they would never be out of control. Fear is a very big issue with manipulative and controlling people. Out of fear can come many different manifestations of control. Fear is the opposite of faith and both demand to be fulfilled.

Self Idolatry (out of occultism) - Jezebel worships herself (keeps the focus on herself, except where a false attitude of compassion or humility serves her purposes). She has herself on the throne. Like I said earlier there is a Unloving Antichrist Spirit operating that causes her to self focus on self. This spirit cares nothing about you but will use you for their importance. They truly do not love themselves and are very driven people. Jezebel demands worship from others ("queen-bee" syndrome). She must have dominance and control in her home. Other family members must exist to please her.

A spirit of Jealousy that comes out of the principality of Envy/Jealousy. They are jealous of anyone who receives recognition. They are on the throne and desire all recognition to go to them. She will stand in the way of anyone else receiving attention or recognition, if possible. This is one of the biggest dangers to the Body of Christ, according to James 3:16, because it opens the door to "every evil thing" to enter in - not just to the Jezebel, but to the entire congregation.

Division – A Jezebel will bring division and destruction when things do not go their way. If someone does not follow her plan, then she becomes a very dangerous person. How, they will gossip lies and deceit to others to bring destructions and can bring division within the camp which destroys an entity such as a church.

Unrealistic expectations on others (perfection, performance and driven ness) - Her expectations from others are always unrealistic, because others cannot meet her demand for complete submission. If they do try, she despises them and casts them aside, when she has what she wants out of them. Anyone attempting to relate to a person with this spirit is literally in a no-win situation. Nothing pleases this spirit. She is not spirit lead but is driven by fear to be perfect and expects everyone else to be perfect.

Perfection, Performance and Drivenness more on this subject. Perfectionism is a common characteristic of the Jezebel - generating self-hatred in the victim, and a despising of others around her who fail to meet her exaggerated standards. This is part of the "unrealistic expectations" she has toward herself and others, and an excuse for disrespect toward others, especially those in authority - they don't "measure up", so she doesn't have to show respect.

Control and manipulation – This is the strongest nature of a Jezebel spirit. Nearly everything the Jezebel does utilizes one or both spirits to attain her goal. Focuses on weaknesses of others - She uses faults or weaknesses she perceives in the person she is attempting to control to create feelings of shame or guilt, and therefore submission to her will. If you are a very strong person, most likely she will not like you and come against you and/or set you up for destruction in front of others. A Jezebel with butt heads with other strong personalities to weaken you down.

A spirit of Self-pity (bitterness or unloving spirit) – She or he will use self-pity (her own weaknesses) to manipulate another into submitting to her out of pity to manipulate your emotions to get you to feel bad about yourself - it is a tactic. How?

a. Jezebels frequently ENJOY poor health, especially the "low-profile" type. For them, it is a tool for attention, sympathy and other forms of manipulation. It usually has one of two purposes - to manipulate others into serving them, to feel loved and attention from others because they truly do not love themselves because of the rejection they have received as a young person or to avoid doing something they do not wish to do.

b. she will tell you stories of victimization to get you to have compassion on her to do what she wants you to do. For example: she will tell you how much pressure she is under and tell you she is working ungodly amount of hours to get a project done and will get you to become compassionate for you to give up your evening to meet her needs or tasks. She gets all the credit for the project but she got you to help her meet her task.

Although this manifestation is not limited to the Jezebel personality, it is often a strong trait displayed. As each complaint is discovered by those around her not to be as serious as she claims, she must develop still other infirmities, more serious and/or more bizarre than the previous ones, to maintain her control or attention.

These afflictions are not limited to the Jezebel spirit's victim; they may be manifestations of the self-pitying rejection attempting to garner attention, as well as other spiritual influences utilizing this form of manipulation, or they may be unrelated to a demonic stronghold altogether.

False Burden Bearing - Being someone else's Holy Spirit. Here's a little amplification of false burden bearing as it relates to control. Again, fear is what is behind most control. Protection control." This comes out of fear of the consequences of someone else's behavior, choices or lack of action. You may fear for what will happen to the other person but usually you also fear for yourself and what will happen to you as a result of the other's choices. This is feeling that you know what's best for another and exerting efforts to make it happen. So out of this comes many aspects of control and it links up with fear, false burden bearing, false compassion, enabling, co-dependency and sometimes pride. There is a good chance that God would like each one of us to experience the consequences of our choices. If we are protecting people from the consequences of their choices, we block God's activity in their life and make ourselves a God in their life

A spirit of Murmuring and Complaining and criticism, - which are "servant spirits" in her stronghold. She uses criticism of perceived faults in others to build up her own self-esteem, and to justify her disobedience of, or lack of respect for, others. Men can do this that do not love their wives like the church. As said earlier, Jezebel’s tends to be driven by perfectionism. She will find fault in others is grounds for disobeying their authority. She uses criticism as a tool to manipulate those around her, and along with murmuring and complaint, causes divisiveness to weaken her opposition and thereby gain control over or destroy them.

A spirit of Lust – She has a spirit of lust for control and power (home, work or church). It can manifest as sexual lust to manipulate the boss, the minister or anyone in leadership to get their way. It can be used to hold back on the husband to control him or get him to do what she needs him to do like repairs around the house, etc. She uses a withdraw from sex from her husband to get what she wants from him.

They have bitterness and/or self-bitterness – if they do not get their way, they will displays angry, vicious and sometimes violent behavior when opposed. Bitterness and resentment against past hurts and offenses are nurtured in the victim by the Jezebel spirit, because she knows a root of bitterness will grow like a cancer and manifest itself in all sorts of physical ailments, which she can use as tools of manipulation Symptoms of Bitterness and self-bitterness:

a. Un-forgiveness: having a hard heart; not obeying the word; being rebellious; keeping a record of wrongs. Hebrews 12.15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; they also have unforgiveness towards self. They hold a record of failures against self. The enemy continually accuses them of their failures that manipulates them to strive more into perfection that is impossible to succeed.

b. Resentment: record of wrongs fueled by feelings of holding on to it; starting to meditate; foundation for spirits of fear

i. Fear of man

ii. Fear of rejection

iii. Fear of failure

iv. Fear of abandonment

A Jezebel is eatened up by self-resentment - they resent their past, they resent their failures and they resent who they are.

c. Retaliation: We want to make the person pay; find ways to get even; Romans 12:17-21 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. V 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. v19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. v20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. v21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

A Jezebel will have self retaliation. They will punish themselves if a task or goal is not met and will drive themselves or others to get the task done.

d. Anger: un-forgiveness, resentment and retaliation have been building then along comes a strong feeling of anger. This can be generational.

A Jezebel will have self-anger toward self. They have exploding episodes over self when things do not go right and will curse themselves.

e. Hatred: There’s not enough room on this planet for you and me to be in the same place at the same time. Can this happen in our churches?

A Jezebel will have a deep seeded hatred for self. They push themselves to no end because they do not have a true identity in Christ and think that works will give them an identity in the things they do but can never meet up to their own expectations so they have a hatred of self and believe they are failures but you will never know it and you will hear them brag on their accomplishments hoping you will reciprocate back.

f. Violence: Before I eliminate you, you’re going to feel my pain; you’re going to know my hatred; you are going to experience it. Can you begin to see the personality of bitterness?

A Jezebel will have self-violence toward self. They have a punishment type mentality by not sleeping or taking care of themselves to get the task or get others to meet their need because of the self-hatred operating. They will have violence through anger toward others or self.

g. Murder: The unlawful killing of one human being by another especially with premeditation. What about murder with the tongue or gossip?

Spirit of Rebellion (coming out of occultism)– Jezebel hates authority over her since there is a fear of authority put over her (especially since men are frequently the authority figures who originally hurt them or women that originally hurt the man). Anyone who displays authority over her will seek to destroy them and take their power. An early manifestation in childhood is a lack of respect for self or others, and no respect for possessions, either theirs or others.

They Have To Be Right in all Conversations (they mimick narisism) - The enemy makes them believe if they are wrong it is failure on their part. They have very little room for themselves to make mistakes or others to make mistakes. They think they are right and they will get angry if you think otherwise. They expect you to believe they are right. If you try to show them they are wrong, they will twist the situation in such a way that you cannot even recognize it

Cursing - Jezebels curse everyone, bringing a curse upon themselves, most of the time unwittingly. Criticism is a form of cursing, both of the person being criticized, and of God their Maker. Murmuring and complaint is a cursing of circumstances, which also curses God for allowing them. Jezebel is a master of criticism, murmuring and complaint, as mentioned previously.

Superiority Complex (really they are insecure) – They see themselves superior and will talk down to others. You will rarely see a Jezebel give compliments to others. Again, they are on the throne and expect you to give them compliments.

A spirit of religion – A Jezebel has a true heart to serve the Lord but because of fear and rejection, they can be very legalistic and religious. What I mean they have a spirit of religion that takes away life instead of giving life. They will beat you up with the word instead of giving life with the word.

A Deep lack of self worth (insecurity) and understanding of God's love for them personally, regardless of the amount of knowledge of the Word. They have a hard time understanding unconditional love. Most likely a Jezebel grew up in a conditionally loved home where you had to perform to receive love. There is such a desperate need of fulfilling self-worth they are ruthless to gain any measure of recognition, even if they already have it. A Jezebel will believe they have to work to receive God's love.

Becuase of their insecurity, they will come across as very confident but it is only a mask to cover up.

Lack of Identity in Christ – Because of deep seeding rejection, they lack identity and do not understand their identity in Christ and know how to trust and let go. They have to be in control and so it is very hard for them to trust in God for their lives and others. They think they need to make it happen. This is a very big snare of the enemy. Because of the spirit of Fear, it is hard for them to just “BE” in the Lord without works, manipulation or making things happen in their own strength. Their identity will be in the things such as a club event, job or even ministry and no one can get in their way.

Lack in Trust in God – Again, they have a hard time trusting God. They truly believe they have to make things happen and cannot wait on the Lord for him to make things happen. There is extreme fear of failure operating in their lives that they truly cannot rest in the Lord and allow Him to make things happen for them.

Paranoid - Jezebel's are very paranoid individuals and if they believe you are against them, they will turn on you in a heart beat and bring destruction to your life. It is because of fear they operate in this arena. They grew up in a house hold where they could not trust their care takers. If you have mutual friends, they have to know what you talked with them about. They have to know. They cannot stand it if you have conversations with mutual friends if they are not around.

Denial - A Jezebel usually cannot see they have a Jezebel Spirit. The victims must first recognize deliverance is needed. It is rare that a person, if directly confronted and told Jezebel is the problem, will believe and accept it. Denial is routine because of a spirit of deception. There is always some other reason for their behavior, and it is true that other spiritual influences may be actively in operation. The best way is to teach and give understanding on what fear looks like and the manifestations. Teach until they can see the truth and lead them into repentance.

When a man does not know how to be the spiritual leader, then it forces the woman to pick it up and be the spiritual leader of a home. Many women do not want this role but because the man did not have a good up bringing, does not know how. At times there are men that are very Patriarchal and abuse the word of God to make his wife and children submit to him through manipulative and controlling through intimidation, it is an indication he has self-hatred toward self and truly does not have a very good view of God's love for him. A man is to love his wife as he loves himself. Scripture references:

To love their wives as Christ loved the Church (Eph. 5:25).

Eph 5:25 "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (KJV)

To love their wives as their own bodies (Eph. 5:28,33). Eph 5:28 "So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself." (KJV)

Eph 5:33 "Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." (KJV)

To nourish (Greek: ektrepho (GSN-), bring up, care for, protect, Eph. 5:29; 6:4; Rev. 12:6)

Eph 5:29 "For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:"

(KJV)

Eph 6:4 "And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."

(KJV)

To cherish (Greek: thalpo (GSN-), to foster, warm in one's bosom, Eph. 5:29; 1Th. 2:7)

Eph 5:29 "For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:"

(KJV)

1 Thes 2:7 "But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:" (KJV)

To be joined as one flesh (Eph. 5:30-31)

Eph 5:30-31 "30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. (KJV)

To leave their parents for their wives (Eph. 5:31)

Eph 5:31 "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh." (KJV)

To cleave to their wives (Eph. 5:31; Mt. 19:5)

Eph: 31 "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. (KJV)

Matt 19:5 "And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?" (KJV)

Even church leaders will control its sheep through manipulation and control. You can see this if there is a religious spirit and the gifts are not moving in the church. You will see manipulation through guilt and shame on his sheep.

Diseases on children from a household out of God’s order and the wife wearing the pants:

• Dyslexia

• Hyperactivity

• Learning disabilities

• Autism (this could be generational)

• Homosexuality

Many times when a person that is matriarchal repents and starts trusting their husband and God, the children straighten up and their sickness and disease goes away.

Conclusion:

A woman needs to understand that if she has no man or a hurting man in her life, she must look to God as her covering in the areas where the man is falling short.

A man needs to seek God as to why he is not being the loving leader of his family. The roots can be varied, but they all can be dealt with through confession, repentance and deliverance.

The ministry involves repenting for not trusting God and walking in the plans and purposes that He has created for each person.

Note: this will continue to be revised as I get more insight!

Does Your Children Have an Imaginary Playmate?

Imaginary Playmates


We think it is innocent when a child has imaginary playmates but it is not innocent. Children before the age of 7 are very open and can see things we cannot see. If you have a child that has imaginary playmate, I want to tell you it is a spirit guide in their life who becomes a companion and a teacher of the child. That parent needs to break the familiar spirit plaguing your child.



What begins, in the child's imagination, as a technique to offset loneliness, evolves into a relationship with a familiar spirit. In some cases, this imaginary friend first made an appearance in a time of stress or trauma. In some, for children who habitually talked to a doll or stuffed animal, the doll or teddy bear suddenly began talking back!



With today's children TV shows, Fairy Tales and Walt Disney - Time Warner movies are full of cabalistic practices such as The Chronicles of Narina: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Time Warner's - Harry Potter Movies - The Lord of the Rings. These movies and books help the children to accept the menacing demons as their friends. They no longer have fear if these devils appear to them in their rooms. They become their imaginary friends. In actuality, they are malignant evil spirits, sent to rob, kill and destroy the children.



As part of the deliverance under the occult, we cast out imaginary playmates that we had as children. We believe them to be evil spirits/spirit guides. In order to be set free, the boy or girl first had to fall out of agreement with the familiar spirit and, command him to go. It is good for all of us to repent if we have ever entertained these evil spirits. And cast them out!

False Burden Bearing

False Burden Bearing - a spirit false responsibility

False Responsibility Definition:  usually there is a false guilt to help others or to cover up your own pain because of the spirit of rejection.
 
Taking False Responsibility for Others

 
What exactly is false burden bearing? False burden bearing is false responsibility. It is when you cannot release a person or persons to the Lord and will try to make things happen for them. You feel responsible for them and you will even be their Holy Spirit.

 
The scripture tell us to bear your brothers burden, it means to join with with them and not become a pack mule. In Galatians 6:1-5 it says:

 
"1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. 4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For every man shall bear his own burden."

 
False burden bearing is under the unloving spirit of not loving yourself. When we become someone's Holy Spirit and feel responsible for them and don't take care of ourselves. It is a trick of the enemy to get your eyes off of the Lord and not put your faith in Him. False Burden Bearing is a false responsibility.

 
The scripture tells you to bear your brothers burden, it means to join with with them and not become a pack mule. You want to come along side of them. So false burden bearing is like pride and it is compensation for rejection and having been rejected and it is what you need to be accepted. You say 'I have been rejected and now I am going to take care of others and bear their burden'.

 

 
It will consume your thoughts of thinking about that person (either their situation or need). A person is not able to release them to the Lord and will try to make things happen to them becasue of False Burden Bearing.

 

 
We can pray and release. When they cannot get off their minds, then there is false burden bearing going on. Then it has not been released to the Lord. We should be able to pray, release them to the Lord knowing he is taking care of them. Then do the things we need to do with peace. When we false burden bearing, then the Lord is not able to come in because the false burden bearing thing blocks God's moving in their lives. Plus, it steals your peace. It is a very suttle way that the enemy uses on his children. You know when you are false burden bearing when you are consumed in thought.

 

 
That is one area I have to watch for my life. I used to be such a big false burden bearing type person. When I get into that thinking, and it has consumed me and I cannot stop thinking about it, then I know I've gone into sin over it and have to cast down (sometimes cast out) the consuming thought as Paul said to do in 2 Corinthians 10:5. Then, I'm able to release it much better. If I catch myself doing it and I can give it to the Lord with faith, then I dont' have to cast it out. I've come out of agreement with it. It has not consumed me yet. You see he enemy wants to get our thoughts off of Christ and be burdened with things. also, to steal our peace and be burdened over the situation or event.

 

 
Signs of false burden bearing or false responsibility

 

 
Anytime or in any way that you need others and their problems in order to feel good about yourself. Using others’ needs to meet your needs.

 
Doing what others should be doing. Rescuing—trying to save them.

 
Co-dependency—covering up for them.

 
Boundary trespassing—not watching your own or looking out for theirs.

 
Meddling—getting into their stuff when it is none of your business.

 
Being someone else’s Holy Spirit—a means of control and dependency. (Beware of striving to tell someone what to do—you can barely see your own path, let alone theirs!)

 
Accepting too many responsibilities—not being able to say no. (Love is spelled “NO.”)

 
In your serving of others, if there is driven-ness or fear, frustration or resentment, or a martyr or messiah complex, there could be false burden bearing.

 
False burden bearing coming out of rejection

 
Because of rejection you may need to have people look to you for help so that you will feel affirmed and needed (not rejected) by others. Or, because of rejection, if you don’t know who you are in Christ, you may get your identity out of living through others or controlling them instead of taking care of your own responsibilities. Either way it’s a burden you can reject!

 

 
Some people go into false burden bearing a lot because if they are consumed for someone else, then it makes them feel important. Why, because they have a low self esteem and a spirit of feeling worthless is working in their life along with other spirits.

 

 
We do need to care for others and not be consumed in thought. We need to learn how to cast all our cares to the Lord. When we are not able to cast our cares to the Lord, what is happening is that a person has doubt in the Lord to take care of a particular sitiation.

 

 
What is it really? The Word says in 1 Peter 5:7 to cast our cares to Him because he cares. If you are thinking about a person's situation continually and consumed by it, then it is a lack of trust in the Lord. We need to be doers of the Word by applying God's word. We can pray for friends and family but then release them to the Lord. Know the Lord is going to take care of them. Put them on the alter and leave them there! If you pick them up again, then give it back to the Lord. Learn to trust the Lord in all situations! Some of the diseases coming out of False Burden Bearing:

 
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Crohn's disease
  • Kyphosis
  • Back Pain
  • Scoliosis

 

There are more but the reason is because of the oppression that is produced when false burdening another person instead of trusting God.  It comes out of rejection and trying to find significance through others and being driven to help others out of fear. 
 
We can be involved with people but what is the heart issue and real reason?  Intercessors many times are burdened.  When we pray for others, our prayers should be like incence.  We pray and release and give it to God and not carry it.  It is not our job to carry the burden but to pray and give the burden to God.

Can a Christian Have A Demon

CAN A CHRISTIAN HAVE A DEMON OR BE DEMON POSSESSED?

The question should be asked what demon has you? What part or aspect of your life does the demon have a stronghold in your life? What area of your life can you not control?

Christ has paid the price to set us free, but many Christians are not free. They are bound by compulsions or problems such as fear, guilt, hurt, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, anger, lust, hate, sickness, or other emotional disorders. Yet, many Scriptures promise freedom, here are some:

  • 'So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed' (John 8:36)
  • 'For freedom Christ has set us free' (Galations 5:1)
  • 'Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom' (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Many people in need of counseling, however, are not free. Why are there so many Christians who are not free? Have you asked that question? Does it mean that we cannot take these Scriptures literally? Or is there another answer? it is shown that freedom is possible and we can take the Scriptures at face value.




The answer lies in taking Jesus seriously. The Christian church in many places, particularly in the western world, has not accepted the threefold task given to it by Jesus, that is to preach the gospel, heal the sick, and cast out demons (Matthew 10:7-8, Mark 6:13, Luke 9:1-2).

What are Demons?

  • Demons are fallen angels. Satan (Lucifer) was cast out of heaven, and took a third of the angels with him (Ezekiel 28:14-18; II Peter 2:4; Jude 6; Revelation 12:4, 9).
  • These "fallen angels" (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 12:7) are either bound, confined to the pit (or abyss; Revelation 9:1-11; Luke 8:31) or are abiding in the "heavenlies" and bothering man kind (Ephesians 3:10; 6:12). They seek to control individuals (Ephesians 2:1-2), political governments (Daniel 10:13, 20), and world perspective and events (John 12:31; Ephesians 6:11-12; II Thessalonians 2:8-10; Colossians 2:8). They always bring destruction in the end, for their goal is to oppose God and steal from, kill and destroy mankind (John 10:10).
  • In fact, demonic spirits are in peace when they are in you (Luke 11:21) and not in peace when casting out demons out of you (Luke 11:24). Demonic spirits manifest their character in you. When out of you, they suffer and want back in you.

When removed, you have to fill yourself with the word of God or they go and bring 7 more stronger than themselves (Luke 11:26).

If you suffer from some type of bondage or behavior that controls you, you might consider a deliverance ministry to remove the demonic strongholds (deliverance from demons) in your life.

Did you know 80% of all diseases have a spiritual root cause which is causing your sickness or disease? Diseases do not come from God but from the kingdom of darkness.

Most of the time there is an open door for demons to get a hold of you causing emotional, physical, spiritual issues.

In Proverbs 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
What are open doors? Sin issues, generational sin issues creating generational curses, traumatic events, etc.

The Battle of the Mind

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Who are principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this world? It comes from Satan's kingdom of darkness.

Before the fall of Adam and Eve, they had a God conscious - not knowing evil, but after the fall, they had a self conscious which opened their awareness of good and evil. What happened is Satan now had the same pathway to communicate with man as God did. Why! Because we are spiritual beings in a body.


Where do thoughts come from? The mind-body connection
Where does thought come from? Are all your thoughts your own? If the mind is the battlefield, then thoughts comes from three (3) sources? God, the enemy and yourself! The kingdom of darkness knows your past, knows what negative words were spoken to you and are good to remind you. Those are the fiery darts mentioned in Ephesians 6:16. Negative words can break your heart.

Why, he is hoping you will become one with thought that does not line up to the Word of God also he is trying to get you to sin through temptation. He knows if you agree or become one with it, that it is the opposite of God's Word. He knows if he can get you to agree with the lie, you will not be able to fulfill the high calling and purlose God has for your life.

That is a stronghold of thinking. Why! Because you are agreeing with the enemy over God's Word! You are calling God a liar!

Example: Lets say someone in your past told you "you are too stupid" or "you will not ever amount to anything."

Every time you try to step out in your calling, you hear a voice saying "you can't do that because you are stupid." You immediately flash back in your mind that negative memory and who said it to you. You immediately feel hurt, feel worthless, feel anger which can develop into Bitterness In Your Heart!

What Happens!

You end up pulling back and not stepping out. The enemy has you and caused you to be disobedient to God. You are agreeing with the kingdom of darkness.

Satan's most frequent and consistent attack is directed against our minds. He sends his hosts out with an arsenal of weapons: lies, threats and intimidation, questions, accusations, lust and other enticements. The attack often starts very early in life. Ephesians 6:16 "Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked."

We need to take the shield of faith ... Ephesians 6:16 tells us "Above all, take the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked."

If a child is abused at home, lies from the enemy appear in the thoughts saying the child deserves it or is not worth anything to anyone. Accusations surface in the thoughts that it is the child's fault anyway. As many children are developing, questions from the enemy often appear in their thoughts regarding their sexual identity. Over and over these thoughts emerge causing confusion, shame and fear.

Once a child begins to receive any lie as truth, more lies will appear to reinforce the central lie. After awhile, the child will begin to focus on its own shortcomings and perceive the rejection of others.

Sometimes people are directed, by the enemy, into their lives to prey on them to add more reinforcement to the lies. If parents do not reflect the character of God to their children, the children will project all their shortcomings on to God. For instance, if one or more parents is cold, lacking in emotion, rigid and constantly preoccupied with other things, the child will see God as lacking compassion, unloving and not there for them. The enemy will encourage these perceptions. Many bring a lot of bad baggage along with them into adulthood from their childhood - called strongholds. Some grow up in homes where there has been considerable control, manipulation and emotional or physical abuse.

Women are often "led" to find a man of similar qualities to continue the destructive negative reinforcements in their lives through familiar spirits. We cannot underestimate the enemy's influence in these situations. In many cases, the enemy already has claims upon parents and even grandparents. Now the enemy focuses on the children, because he knows that the consequences of family sins can make the children vulnerable to similar attacks.

Often there are strongholds of low self-esteem and self hatred, rejection, fear, bitterness of others or God, anger, etc. Needless to say, it is very difficult for them, as believers, to live by faith. The enemy continues to pummel them will lies and accusations, causing much doubt and hopelessness. We see many adults who are full of anger, bitterness and unforgiveness. Some time in their life, often in childhood, they have been hurt deeply by someone. The enemy will constantly give them "flashback memories" of that situation in the past. The memories are so painful, that they constantly stir up the anger, bitterness and resentment, so strongly that it is very difficult for that person to forgive, even though they know the need to.

Putting Out Fiery Darts: Temptations
Satan's purpose is to drive you to sin. Then from sin to habitual sin controlling you. Satan tempted Eve and it is not sin yet when you are tempeted but Eve's temptation took her to sin when she ate the apple and then presented to Adam. It takes seven (7) steps to take you from temptation to sin. Again, temptation is not sin but it is what you do with the temptation. Do you entertain it or cast it down.

Once he has gotten you to sin, then comes the accusation from Satan. He knows you can run to God for forgiveness but if he can accuse you and keep you separated from God through accusation, shame and guilt, he has you. You see, if he can accuse you, then you will accuse yourself and not go to the father of forgiveness. Remember Adam and Eve? They ran from God and hid behind the tree with shame and guilt and fear. Emotions (spiritual beings attacking their mind with lies) that they have never felt before.

Satan reminds us of our past sins and failures. If we listen to his accusations aginst us, we begin to meditate on our past. Satan wants to drive a wedge between you and the Lord. He wants to control you in the flesh and keep you from the truth of God's love. Also to get you to give up and give into habitual sin actions which are strongholds because it is a way of thinking opposite of God or action opposite of God.

We could continue indefinitely with these scenarios, but it is my hope you have gotten the point concerning the enemy's activity directed toward your thoughts. What is a person to do when their mind has been under assault for such a long time? My answer to that is not simple, nor is it easy. But you have to start somewhere.

1. It is extremely important to correct the wrong perceptions of God. Any study that presents a balanced study of the character of God will be extremely beneficial.

2. It is equally important to discover what God has to say about you. You need to know your true identity according to the Word of God. The enemy has been distorting and lying about you, so that you have a false perception of yourself. We have a simple study on this site in which you can discover what the Word of God says about you. The apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 10:5 to "take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." The first two steps, "Knowing God" and "The Believer's Identity in Christ," are the beginning of that process. It is imperative that you fill your mind with TRUTH to counteract the lies you have been believing. The Word renews our mind to have the Mind of Christ.

3. You also have to confess specifically that you have been believing the lies of the enemy and ask God to forgive you and cleanse you. Part of taking your thoughts captive is to start disciplining yourself concerning the things you watch in the movies, TV and the internet, as well as the things you read in books and magazines.

You need to clean up what you are allowing to influence your mind and emotions. The apostle Paul tells us in Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."It won't be easy at first, but with God's help and a desire to please Him, you can overcome and claim victory.

4. God has given each of us direct access to Himself through prayer. He has said that we can come boldly into His presence and present our requests to Him. Most people do not take advantage of this great privilege. Many see it only as an obligation rather than a way to experience fellowship with the Lord.

Parents want their children to come to them with their concerns. How much more does our God want us to come to Him. Jesus spent much time with his Father when he was on this earth.Without a consistent prayer life and fellowship with the Lord, you will not experience the victory that you desire. God has given us the Holy Spirit to teach how to pray. God has given us promises to claim. He has given us tremendous provisions to utilize in our daily lives.

In closing, I want to remind you of another statement by the Apostle Paul."Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7May God bless you with the determination to conquer the enemy's deceptions. It is the Lord's will for you to be free.

Formerly Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12), who was the covering cherub angel for God's throne (Ezekiel 28:14-16). (See Ezekiel 10 and Ezekiel 1:5-26 for description of the cherubim angels)

Served in the midst of the fiery stones before the throne of God (Ezekiel 28:14,16)

Created perfect in beauty, adorned with precious stones and full of wisdom (Ezekiel 28:12-16)

Established by God with tremendous power (Isaiah 14:9-11, Ezekiel 28:14)

Sinned by pride (Isaiah 14:13-14, Ezekiel 28:17)

Is/was a destroyer of nations and cities (Isaiah 14:12,16,17,20)

God cast him out of heaven (Isaiah 14:12, Ezekiel 28:16-17, Luke 10:18)

Became Satan ("the adversary") and accuser of the brethren (Zechariah 3:1-2)

Current status:

Satan is the ruler of the earth (Luke 4:5-6, John 12:31). He is also referred to as the "prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience" (Ephesians 2:2 NKJV)

Has authority, power and a throne (Revelation 13:2), and may give his authority over the earth to whomever he wishes (Luke 4:5-7). He will ultimately give his throne, his power and great authority to the beast (Revelation 13:2).

Primary tactics: steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). He also uses death (Hebrews 2:14), deception (Revelation 12:9), lust (Proverbs 11:6, 2 Peter 1:4, Ephesians 2:1-3) and pride (1 John 2:15-17) to rule the earth.

He is stealthy, seeking opportune times to attack (Luke 4:13)

Asks for God’s permission to afflict certain people: Peter (Luke 22:31); Job (Job 1:11-12).

He is the father of lies and there is no truth in him (John 8:44)

He is a murderer (John 8:44)

Powers:

Has the power of death until both he and death are destroyed during the establishment of God’s everlasting kingdom on earth (1 Corinthians 15:24-26, Revelation 20:10,14)

His power and rule are limited (Revelation 12:9, 20:1-3)
Not omnipresent (Luke 4:13)

Forces

Forces include principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age, spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12)
With the exception of people used by evil, Satan’s forces are spiritual, not flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12)

Evil Angels:

Satan deceived a third of the angels in heaven and them to serve himself (Revelation 12:3-9). Since there are "myriads and myriads" of God's angels, it follows that a third of them is also a large number (Hebrews 12:22, Revelation 5:11)

Fight with God's angels over matters involving human events. Daniel 10:13,20 depicts warfare between good and evil angels.

Will fight God's Archangel Michael and other angels and will be cast out of heaven with Satan (Revelation 12:9).

Will ultimately be tormented in everlasting fire (Matthew 25:41)

Imprisoned forces: Some rebelling angels were imprisoned just before Noah's flood and now await final judgment. They rebelled by taking human wives and produced offspring (Genesis 6:1-6). They helped draw the human race into continual evil. God sent the flood to wipe out this corrupted race, and imprisoned the guilty angels in Hell (2 Peter 2:4, Jude 6). Jesus Christ proclaimed his victory over all evil to these imprisoned spirits during His resurrection, sealing their destruction (1 Peter 3:18-20).
Demons/Evil Spirits

Characteristics

Dwell on the earth and seek bodies to inhabit. (Revelation 18:2, Matthew 12:43-44, Mark 5:12)
Know they will suffer at the hands of Jesus at an appointed time (Matthew 8:29)

Recognize Jesus Christ as the Son of God (Mark 1:24-26, Mark 5:10-13). They also recognize those operating under the authentic authority of Jesus Christ (Acts 19:15).

Communal. When re-inhabiting a former host person, a demon will take 7 spirits more wicked than himself and reoccupy the person (Matthew 12:43-45). Examples of multiple demons inhabiting a person are found at Mark 16:9 (Mary had 7 demons) and Mark 5:9 (Gadarenes man had a legion of demons). Also, in James 3:16 NKJV, James confirmed their communal traits, "where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there."

Have intellect and will (Matthew 12:43-45)

Vary in level of wickedness (Matthew 12:43-45)

Description: Job’s friend, Eliphaz, described an encounter with an evil spirit in Job 4:12-21. The spirit was characterized by fear and disquieting thoughts. Eliphaz saw the spirit’s form but was unable to discern it’s appearance.

Capabilities

Limited power; they require rest (Matthew 12:43-44)

Can travel (Matthew 12:43-45)

Can affect the "state" of their host person (Matthew 12:43-45) ranging from total demonic possession (Mark 5:2-8) to periodic demonic influence (Mark 9:17-18).

They are able to influence the emotions, thoughts and actions of their host toward destruction. Examples include the Gerasene demoniac cutting himself in Mark 5:5 and the boy who was being thrown into the fire in Mark 9:22.

Vary in power level. Some are only routed through prayer and fasting (Matthew 17:21, Mark 9:29).

People

People can be used by evil powers to accomplish satanic purposes. Examples include Judas betraying Christ (John 13:27), Elymas thwarting

Paul’s ministry (Acts 13:8-10) and David numbering Israel's army (1 Chronicles 21:1).

Can be used as false apostles and deceitful workers (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

Satan's forces can speak through Christians (Matthew 16:22-23). Satan spoke through Peter, tempting Jesus to avoid suffering and death.

Satan may enter people to influence them directly (Judas - Luke 22:3, Ananias – Acts 5:3)

Sin nature: Our own sin nature can be our worst enemy. Evil powers may try to manipulate us by appealing to our sin nature and use sinful desires to war against us (1 Peter 2:11-12, James 1:14-15).

Communication:

Native kingdom language is deception. Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44).

Satan's Forces are able to communicate individually and as a group. This is illustrated in the examples of the legion of demons in the Gerasene demoniac (Mark 5:2-8) and the demon returning with 7 other demons to his host in Matthew 12:43-45.

Evil words: Can be used to promote destruction, fear, doubt, blasphemy and curses (James 3:6,10-12). One example of how evil forces can use evil words is found in Ecclesiastes 10:20. Solomon talked about how a "bird of the air" could reveal a person's evil thoughts and words spoken privately to other people. The Amplified Bible refers to a "winged creature," which could suggest a fallen angel or demon that intercepts thoughts and words.

Idle words: can provide a foothold for affliction and judgment of the speaker (Matthew 12:36-37)
Blocking: Evil angels attempted to block God's angel from bringing the answer to Daniel's prayer in Daniel 10:13,20.

Counterfeit spiritual gifts: evil forces may use counterfeit spiritual manifestations to accomplish their purposes. Divination, necromancy, witchcraft, fortune telling, palm reading and sorcery are all examples of manifestations of evil power (see occult sin page for more info and refs).

Future: Jesus Christ will crush Satan's kingdom completely, and the last enemy to be destroyed will be death (1 Corinthians 15:24-26). The

Archangel Michael will defeat Satan and hurl him down from heaven (Revelation 12:9). Next, he will be bound by an angel and thrown into the pit for 1000 years (Revelation 20:1-3). Finally, Satan and his forces will be cast into the lake of fire permanently (Revelation 20:10,14-15). Jesus

Christ will then triumphantly hand over the kingdom to God the Father (1 Corinthians 15:24-25).
