To tackle this subject we will have to go back to the Bible references concerning "Fallen Angels." When
fallen angels were here oin earth (satan and 144,000 kicked out of heaven) and took to themselves some
human wives (Genesis 6:1-2). they produced mighty children born to them that began corrupting the human
race. This accelerated to such a degree that God himself saw it necessary to destroy all flesh with a great
flood, saving only the righteous-Noah and his family. When these (hybrids) died out, their spirits roamed earth seeking humans to not only harass but, also to indwell. The spirits that we do spiritual warfare against are
these evil spirits. This is why they are so knowledgeable of man, his desires, goals,actions and reactions as
well as man's weaknesses. At every available turn they seek out and harass until they can eventually inhabit
the human mind,siprit and will. Because of study they readily go forth and attempt to complete their mission.
The Bible names these evil spirits and the refences fpr a few are listed below:
Deaf and Dumb spirit - Mark 9:17-29
Evil spirit - Luke 7:21 and Acts 19:12-13
Familiar Spirit - 1 Smauel 28:7
Foul spirit - Mark 9:25
Lying spirit - II chronicles 18:20-22
Perverse spirit - Isaiah 19:14 and Romans 1:17-32
Seducing spirit - I Timothy 4:1
Spirit of anti-christ - I John 4:3
Spirit of Bondage - Roman 8:15
Spirit of Death - I Corin. 10:10 , 15:26
Spirit of Divination - Acts 16:16
Spirit of Error - I John 4:6
Spirit of Fear - II Timothy 1:7
Yes, evil spirits do exists, you must recognize the enemy in any form and level.
Thank you for posting Prophetess Williams; this brings the term to life about studying to show yourself approval, a workman need not to be ashame, rightly dividing the word of truth. When we continue to seek the face of God, revelations will come concerning the scriptures. We can't get an understanding unless we have a revelation of what the Spirit of the Lord is speaking to us.
This separate the spiritual matured from the babes.
I believe these are some of the core which brings about other evil acts. I wish to add to the list, the Spirit of Rejection. Psalm 27:10
Amen! How do you know what to fight or rebuke if it is not identified. We will be swinging blind so to speak.
Prophetess Williams, I just thought of another really detrimental spirit. The spirit of complaining. I've seen so many posts here on this site where people are not using dialogs or discussions but they're actually complaining about the body of Christ. The Word of God have given us discernment to tell the difference between the two of voice a concern with compassion and a flat out complaint.
In 1 Corinthians 10:10 it states: "And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel". (NIV).
What a lot of Christians don't know is complaining leads to disobedience to God; Psalm 106:25 - They grumbled in their tents and did not obey the LORD (NIV)
Lastly, the Word of God says, so a man thinks in his heart, so is he. If we only see the negative side of the body of Christ, this is how we see ourselves.
I just wanted to share that.
