Hi guys, we are not done yet with our series about the subject of faith, but there is some kind of emergency, and I was about to do this series after the series of the importance of faith, but I just thought I should post this one post today, and we will continue with what we have learned from last week next week.
I have been battling some demonic and evil forces, and I want by the end of this year to be delivered from all them, I know it sounds crazy, but I dare to believe. You know, the devil maybe one, but has so many influences and forces of spirits channels that operate under the kingdom of darkness authority.
From today up to the end of December, I would like us, when I say us, is for all believers, to pray and rebuke some of the following forces out of our lives, our loved ones lives, and all people concerning us. All I know is that I need to be delivered, and while I’m praying for myself, I might as well pray for my own and everyone concerning me, for my own good sake…hahaha.
Any pastor and believer may be reading this, let’s join forces and pray for one another. Please pray for me, my loved ones, and all concerning me, in my present and future. From today up to December 31st, I will be praying and rebuking these demonic forces out of our lives, and I will also pray for all my audiences and any one that will pray for me.
So let’s pray that the Blood of Jesus wash away all these demonic and evil forces and the Power of the Holy Spirit consume and destroy all these forces in our lives, our loved ones lives, and anyone concerning us, in the Might Name of Jesus Christ.
So as of today, we agree and release ourselves and declare, we are delivered from the leviathan spirit, python spirit, anti-Christ spirit, jezebel spirit, mammon spirit, deceiving spirit, beelzebul spirit, religious spirit, false prophecy and false discipleship spirits, failure at the edge of success spirit, spirits of fear, worry, or anxiety, sexual immoral spirits and activities and all disgrace and immoral spirits, regional, territorial, and airborne spirits, familiar spirit, herod spirit, witchcraft, spirits of doubt and unbelief, victimized spirit, spirits of heaviness and depression, spirits of infirmity and all kinds of curses and abnormalities, demonic soul ties, and all evil spirits that maybe existing, IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, IN THE NAME ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME, IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN.
I know some of my audiences they may say, oh, I don’t know if there are such demonic and evil spirits existing in this world. May be let’s start to go through the following three notorious demonic and evil forces. Sometimes it’s good to know what we are fighting against in order to overcome it.
- Python spirit
The first spirit that is notorious and the Bible talks about is the spirit of python or the spirit of divination, or the false Holy Spirit. Have you ever heard of the false prophets or horoscopes and fortune telling experts, then these people according to the Bible they operate under the spirit of python or spirit of divination.
In the book of Acts chapter 16 verses 16 and 24, it talks about this spirit. Apparently Apostle Paul was able to discern it that it wasn’t the Spirit from God, the Holy Spirit, Who the Bible says is the Spirit of Truth. The story says that “Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the Name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. They brought them before the magistrates and said, “These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice.” The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods. After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. When he received these orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.”
Remember now, the Bible passage shows that this python snake spirit can tell the future and discern some things. This female was able to tell that Paul and Silas were the servants of the Most High God. And many people got rich through her because of her fortune telling. She probably was so good to the point her owners got mad because their hope of making money was gone when Apostle Paul cast the spirit out of her.
This python devilish spirit is one of the major influences of demonic forces all around the world. There are so many false prophets in this world and they are really not influenced by the Holy Spirit of God; they are influenced by the demonic forces of the devil. You go online you will even see some ads about horoscopes. The behind of their prophecy and future telling is the devil, and it’s not God.
You know, God is more powerful than the devil because He can override what they are saying. We are supposed to believe what God and His Word says, because in the presence of God, the python spirit is nothing, it can be rebuked anytime and the outcomes of the false prophecy can be changed.
So how do you know you are affected by the spirit of python? Well, if you rely on fortune telling, you can’t get your hands off the horoscopes things. If you dream the dreams that are not from God that interpreting things that are not from God. Anything that can be discerned that is false and not according to the Will of God, and it doesn’t come from the Holy SPIRIT of GOD, you have to check it maybe it’s from the spirit of python.
- Anti-Christ spirit
Another snake spirit that is notorious in the world. Many people know about this spirit than any other demonic and evil spirits. And unfortunately many people wouldn’t go to heaven because of this spirit. The Bible says satan or the devil keeps unbelievers in spiritual darkness by blinding their minds not to see the truth and the light of God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the book of 2 Corinthians chapter 4 verses 1 to 6, it says “Therefore, since God in His mercy has given us this new way, we never give up. We reject all shameful deeds and underhanded methods. We don’t try to trick anyone or distort the word of God. We tell the truth before God, and all who are honest know this. If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, Who is the exact likeness of God. You see, we don’t go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, Who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.”
The Lord Jesus has been recorded saying satan or the devil, is the father of lies, and a murderer from the beginning. In the book of John chapter 8 from verses 33 to 47, it says that there was a dispute over whose children the Lord Jesus’ opponents are, between the Lord Jesus and some Jews that were there, and the passage says that “They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can You say that we shall be set free?” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for My Word. I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.]” “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do what Abraham did. As it is, you are looking for a way to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God Himself.” Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on My Own; God sent Me. Why is My language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me! Can any of you prove Me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe Me? Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
If you ask me the first spirit we need to rebuke is the spirit of anti-Christ. Because once we get rid of this spirit and the Lord Jesus comes to be the Lord of our lives, then the Spirit of God, the Spirit of truth, comes to live in us, and God will start working in us and through us and removing all ungodly things as He keeps on sanctifying us. The Bible says the Holy Spirit of God will keep on working in us until the day of Jesus Christ. In the book of Philippians chapter 1 verse 6, it says “Being confident of this, that He Who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
One of the Bible passage that talks about anti-Christ spirit existence is in the book of 1 John chapter 4 verses 1 to 3, in Amplified Bible version it says that “Beloved, do not believe every spirit [speaking through a self-proclaimed prophet]; instead test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets and teachers have gone out into the world. By this you know and recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges and confesses [the fact] that Jesus Christ has [actually] come in the flesh [as a man] is from God [God is its source]; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus [acknowledging that He has come in the flesh, but would deny any of the Son’s true nature] is not of God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is now already in the world.” The same Bible passage in New Living Bible translation it says “Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God. But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the antiChrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here.”
So how do you know you are affected by the spirit of anti-Christ? Well, I mean, be honest to yourself. To be anti-something, it means to be against that something. Ask yourself and be honest to yourself. May be start by asking yourself, what is making you not to believe God and His Son Jesus Christ. Go to the root of the problem, or just pray, Lord, help me with my unbelief and doubts.
- Leviathan spirit
Also known as the king of pride. Notorious to the point that is called the king, the rebellious spirit. In fact Job in the Bible was affected by it even though he was in right standing with God and wasn’t that rebellious, but Job had some kind issues with pride. What does it mean then? This leviathan spirit can even affect believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ if you do not humble yourself always before God.
How do you know you are affected with leviathan spirit? If you have got issues of pride that is one of the biggest sign.
The Bible in the book of Job chapter 41 talks about the characters of this leviathan snake and spirit. The Bible records that this leviathan spirit is a sea beast and creature, the king of the ocean.
This is what the Bible passage says: “Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord? “Can you put a rope [made] of rushes into his nose or pierce his jaw through with a hook? “Will he make many supplications to you [begging to be spared]? Or will he speak soft words to you [to coax you to treat him kindly]? “Will he make a covenant or an arrangement with you? Will you take him for your servant forever? “Will you play with him as with a bird? Or will you bind him [and put him on a leash] for your maidens? “Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? “Can you fill his skin with harpoons, or his head with fishing spears? “Lay your hand on him; remember the battle [with him]; you will not do such [an ill-advised thing] again! “Behold, his [assailant’s] hope and expectation [of defeating Leviathan] is false; will not one be overwhelmed even at the sight of him? “No one is so fierce [and foolhardy] that he dares to stir up Leviathan; who then is he who can stand before Me [or dares to contend with Me, the beast’s creator]? “Who has first given to Me that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is Mine. [Who can have a claim against Me who made the unmastered beast?] “I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his orderly frame. “Who can penetrate or strip off his outer armor? Who can come to his jaws with a double bridle? “Who can open the doors (jaws) of his face? Around his [open jaws and] teeth there is terror. “His strong scales are his pride, bound together as with a tight seal. “One is so near to another that no air can come between them. “They are joined one to another; they stick together and cannot be separated. “His sneezes flash forth light, and his eyes are like the [reddish] eyelids of the dawn. “Out of his mouth go burning torches, and sparks of fire leap out. “Out of his nostrils smoke goes forth as from a boiling pot and [as from] burning rushes. “His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes forth from his mouth. “In Leviathan’s neck resides strength, and dismay and terror dance before him. “The folds of his flesh are joined together, firm on him and immobile [when he moves]. “His heart is as hard as a stone, indeed, as solid as a lower millstone. “When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid; because of the crashing they are bewildered. “The sword that reaches him cannot avail, nor [does] the spear, the dart, or the javelin. “He considers iron as straw, bronze as rotten wood. “The arrow cannot make him flee; slingstones are treated as stubble by him. “Clubs [also] are regarded as stubble; he laughs at the rushing and the rattling of the javelin. “His underparts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he moves across and spreads out [grooves] like a threshing sledge on the mire (muddy river banks). “He makes the deep water boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a [foaming] pot of ointment. “Behind him he makes a shining wake; one would think the deep to be gray-haired [with foam]. “Upon earth there is nothing like him—no equal exists, a creature made without fear. “He looks on everything that is high [without terror]; he is monarch over all the sons of pride. [And now, Job, who are you who does not dare to disturb the beast, yet who dares resist Me, the beast’s creator? Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore, who can have a claim against God?]”
Another place in the Bible that is mention this leviathan spirit is in the book of Isaiah 27 verse 1, and it says that “In that day, The LORD will punish with His sword—His fierce, great and powerful sword—leviathan the gliding serpent, leviathan the coiling serpent; He will slay the monster of the sea.”
So the Bible says this leviathan beast is the monarch over all the sons of pride. This beast is the source of people who got pride. If you are a prideful person, you know, full of yourself…hahaha, you may have been bitten or swallowed by this spirit.
I googled the meaning of pride. And it says, there is a good pride and a negative pride. In Wikipedia it says “Pride is an inwardly directed emotion that carries two antithetical meanings. With a negative connotation pride refers to a foolishly and irrationally corrupt sense of one’s personal value, status or accomplishments, used synonymously with hubris. With a positive connotation, pride refers to a humble and content sense of attachment toward one’s own or another’s choices and actions, or toward a whole group of people, and is a product of praise, independent self-reflection, and a fulfilled feeling of belonging.” But it also says “In Judaism, pride is called the root of all evil.”
So how do you even start being delivered from this leviathan spirit? It sounds so notorious isn’t it?
The Bible says in the book of 1 Peter chapter 5 verses 1 to 11, that “To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, Who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
So we learn that God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble. Therefore, we need to humble ourselves before God so that He can help us.
I believe that pride is the root of disobedience toward God and it has some rebellious spirit in it. And the root of sin is disobedience. It started in the Garden of Eden as recorded in the Bible when our first ancestors disobeyed what God told them and heed to the voice and temptation of satan or the devil.
When it comes to spiritual battles, we need to take a full armor of GOD. When we do that, The LORD GOD Himself will fight what we cannot do on our own. Our job is to take a full armor of God, be obedient to what God says, and do what God and His Word tells us, basically walk in obedience toward God.
