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.
