The Perverse Spirit

I think this is a very prevalent spirit in America today. I see it and feel perverse behavior and even attitudes all around me often. Interesting that looking into the appearance of this perverse demon in our lives, I see it comes in because of ungodly places you’ve been, things you’ve seen, heard or read. Isn’t that interesting? Now, this does include pornography and that’s what first comes to mind, but I’m thinking of just being in situations that you know as you sit there are ungodly.

For example, sitting around with your church friends after Bible Study talking about someone, whom if she were there you would not say what you were saying the way you were saying it. Ungodly company. The perverse spirit is attracted to you and comes flying in.

Perverseness all around us comes from billboards, ads online, ads in newspapers, magazines, and commercials on TV. You can’t hardly go anywhere without seeing naked people portrayed in print or on screens or sometimes near naked dressed people walking down the street. In America we are inundated with this. Your first step is recognizing that you’re being affected by this.

As we have done in past postings, repent of this defilement. As usual, if you can’t think of anything that has defiled you, ask the Holy Spirit to help you. If you’re reading this, then you need it. Call this demon to attention. When you locate it in the room, rebuke the perverse spirit in the Name of Jesus. Bind it and cast it into hell. Warn it not to harm anyone on the way out or act out. Just go quietly.
When this is done, praise God. Receive the pouring of the oil of the Holy Spirit on the inside of you. On your spirit that has been wounded by the invasion of this spirit. Worship the Lord and praise Him for what He is doing on the inside of you through these teachings on comprehensive demonology.

The Unclean Spirits

There are demons called unclean spirits. We let them in when we lust. (In one dictionary, lust is defined as intense, unbridled desire). This includes lusting after having sex, but it also includes lusting after money or any greed for anything, including people’s approval and attention. This is a huge but subtle problem for us today as we live and work in a competitive environment both in church and at work. Aren’t you just tired of it? It’s so bad, that I feel bad, when I have to tell someone that I’m not busy. There is no need for us to be weighed down by this need to be approved of by anyone, even ourselves. It’s exhausting competing with ourselves and trying to best our last book or album or job project.

Unclean spirits that come in when we crave these things, often come in groups, sometimes piled up in us like pancakes, so command all of them to go. If you’ve been following this blog, you know the drill:

“Unclean spirits, in Jesus Name, I call you to attention. All of you.”

You may actually feel or sense a presence in the room and identify what area of the room the spirits are in. If you do, you can turn to that area and speak to them. Do not be afraid. This is not like some TV paranormal show. This is the real spiritual warfare, Jesus has equipped you to fight. Continue,

“Unclean spirits I bind you in the Name of Jesus, and I cast you out into the abyss.”

Dismiss them with the strength of your will. Believe it’s happening, don’t doubt. It’s very simple, it’s very clear, you don’t have to speak in tongues, you don’t have to yell, they understand that ‘Name of Jesus’ power. You don’t have to use these exact words of course and please don’t make them a ritual. This is just to get you started. If you feel more words are needed…

”By the blood of the Lamb you all are bound and cast out completely, immediately and permanently.”

Then it is good to bind any retaliation and revenge spirits Satan is sending up to replace those demons, for you have dealt a blow to his kingdom. (Check out Mary Baxter’s book about his kingdom - FREE!)

Say, “I bind right now in the Name of Jesus any retaliation spirits on their way up now. I rebuke you in Jesus Name and cast you right back to the abyss”

The abyss is hell. Now, some of you may think this is too bold or that we should say something else. I follow what Jesus said, not to say your opinion isn’t right, I’m just sharing what is working for me. Jesus scared the demons and they would yell out “please don’t torture me” Mark 5:6-8. Sounds like the abyss to me. That word ‘abyss’ is actually used in Luke 8:31. So that’s why I’m bold to command them to go to the abyss.

Battle on soldiers!

Then, worship the Lord and praise Him for the power He has given you. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill up all the spaces left by those unclean spirits. If any demons try to return – they returned to Jesus over and over after his temptation in the wilderness – they will not find you swept clean and empty, with room for more of them. Keep yourself filled with the Holy Spirit and anointed by God. Keep your lamps full of oil as in Matthew 25 with the ten virgins.

The Spirit of Whoredoms

This spirit comes in when we commit idolatry. Yes, us. We may call ourselves Christians but we still sin and commit idolatry. The Israelites knew the Lord and sinned by idolatry (so many examples but one: 2 Chronicles 25:18). They are a shadow of us. We are doing the same thing. You may think you don’t bow down to an idol, but can you live without your boyfriend? Mmm. Can you give up your Bentley? Mmm. Can you let go your dream to get that PhD, you’ve wished for since you were 9 in the jungle of Bangladesh and you’re almost finished and have already spent so much money on it. But God has said pull out. Mmm! Perhaps a big ‘No’ for that last one.

You will need, in order to get rid of this demon of whoredoms, to confess areas where you have put people or things ahead of God. Note the disciple in Matthew 9:21-22. Or the rich ruler who wanted to know what else he could do for God, Matthew 19:20-24. Under the power of the Holy Spirit test yourself and think what is it that you could no way give up. Count that an idol. God will help you know. The Holy Spirit is happy to teach you and show you all truth, so He is ready and able and standing by, hoping you give Him a chance to help you get free.

So confess that you have put anything or anyone before God. Repent. Don’t do it anymore. Praise God for the power of Jesus blood washing you clean. Now you are on the side of right and can tell the whoredom demon that came in because of this idolatry. Tell the demon to get out and go where Jesus tells it to go.
Check to make sure it has gone by calling it to attention. If you still feel it’s around, bind up, rebuke, cast out again. Receive your freedom and rejoice.

The Lying Spirit

Hypocrisy and deception invite the lying spirit in. This demon causes you to live in fantasy. Now, without judging anybody, can you see how we and the world around us are trapped by this demon? Talk about living in fantasy. That seems to be America’s new mainstay instead of capitalism. We should confess hypocrisy and deception and repent of it.

Hypocrisy – tricky if you don’t know you’re being a hypocrite. Being deceptive runs so deep, we will need help from the Spirit of God to identify this problem. Here’s a big lie identified in the word of God – he who says he has no sin, deceives himself and the truth is not in him (1 John 1:8). So before you say you don’t deceive, wait and hear what the Father has to say to you about that.

Confess your sins of hypocrisy and deception. Now you can call the lying spirit to attention. Here’s one where I feel I should first bind the strongman spirit. Of course you can do that with any of the demons we’ve studied. Call that strongman spirit in charge of the lying spirit to attention. Remember that Lucifer is the father of lies and lies to us and thereby leads us to sin. The act is our choice, but he uses lies to lead us there.

“Strong man spirit of these lying spirits influencing me, I bind you in the Name of Jesus and by the Blood of the Lamb. I cast you out now, into the abyss. You and all your minions. Be cast out now. I am loosed from off of you and you are bound and cast out.”

Because you have repented and are under the Covenant and law of God which means you can bind things on Earth and since you have dominion through Jesus Christ, you have the authority. Know that they are gone. Of course, you can check again and call them to attention. If any are identified in your space, repeat your commands.

Remember to praise the Lord God who has put you in position. Worship Him that you are called to be a soldier of the Cross, that you get to fight on the side of the Kingdom of heaven.

The Haughty Demon

We all know this one and it is a stumbling block, perhaps even one of the little foxes(Song of Solomon 2:15). Our pride. It invites in the haughty demon. Confess it and if you’re having trouble because some of us have been so proud for so long that we’re like ‘Duh?’ ask God to help you see it. He will, for this is truly a problem. Repent of it and ask God for forgiveness. Call the demon to attention.

“Haughty spirit, I call you to attention in Jesus Name.” When you identify it;

“I bind you in the Name of Jesus and I cast you out into the abyss, now.”

Praise the Lord for release. Receive His forgiveness and forgive yourself.

NB: Areas of pride you may not think of – not wanting to take help from anyone, but always giving help; not wanting anyone to see you doing good, lest they criticize some part of it; calling your way of cooking rice, the only way (O.K. I got a little personal:( ,you catch the drift……………………………….)

Spirit of Witchcraft

The Spirit of witchcraft comes in if we try to control others. Also, if we are involved in witchcraft, the occult, ouija boards, horoscopes (yep, horoscopes! They are not fun, but a way to let this demon in), tea leaves reading, s̩ances, palm readingРanything you can think of in this regard. Blatant use of witchcraft is in Wicca & Yoruba religionists out of West Africa (a great pull for African Americans because they are so pro-black), Voodoo, prevalent in Haiti and Benin and so on. Some of us look only at this kind of witchcraft and not in the subtle areas of trying to manipulate others. But if you think about it, it is similar, because the witchcraft practitioner is trying to manipulate events for you and control them Рmake someone fall in love with you, punish someone who has done you wrong.

Now, confess and repent of your desires and efforts to control others through your attitudes and behavior; repent of involvement in the occult. Receive the forgiveness offered you by the Father, forgive yourself and anyone else that you feel may have led you into witchcraft in ALL its forms. Call the demon of witchcraft to attention, now that you are back under the will of God, he has no right to you; rebuke, bind and cast him out. Here’s the drill:

“Demon of witchcraft, I call you to attention. I bind you in the Name of Jesus, you have no rights here and no power over me. I know better now, your time is up in my life! I cast you out into the abyss now. Get! I call myself loosed from this evil force now, in Jesus Name.”

Now, worship the Lord God for His goodness to you and your release from the clutches of this awful spirit. Thank Him for revealing this truth to you and ask blessing and healing on people you have been trying to control all your life and speak freedom and release into their lives.

Spirit of Jealousy

This bugger gets in when we do what is so easy and common for us to do – resent someone, something, some situation, some government or institution. We have to repent for feeling resentment. There are so many areas where this can enter in so repent of all areas and ask the Lord to forgive you and release you. Then forgive yourself and receive the forgiveness of the Lord.

A word of caution; it doesn’t matter if you feel the resentment is justified – this resentment is welcoming the spirit of jealousy. This is when you have to take a “big boy pill” or a “big girl pill” in the Lord and drop the resentment and let it go. Drop it like a hot potato because it is burning you! Resentment eats away. Resentment weighs you down. Resentment is tiring and you can’t grow from strength to strength as you’re meant to. In other words it’s a show stopper.

Call that demon of jealousy to attention. Call the strongman spirit of the jealousy demon to attention first. Rebuke him in Jesus name, bind him and command him to leave by the Blood of the Lamb. By the law of God it has to go because you’ve repented and asked forgiveness of the Lord and therefore it’s already been bound in heaven. So by right you can get rid of that demon and step into your freedom. Bind up the retaliation spirits and demons that are being sent to try and hurt you because you dare know your rights in heavenly places and have dealt Hell a blow.

If you need to, and the Holy Spirit is right there to guide you into all truth, check and make sure the demon is gone by calling it to attention again. If need be bind those left and cast them out (cast out means command them to go – I just realized some of you might not know that churchy term “cast out”).
