Demonic spirits - exposed!

  • PDF

SatanJesusArmWrestleWhat are demons?  In the KJV of the Bible demons are referred to as evil spirits or devils.  The word devils in Greek means daimonion which is translated as demons, fallen angels and messengers and ministers of satan. Demons can tempt man and even enter mans soul to exert influence over the power by which the human being feels, thinks and decides.  Many people struggle to believe that they can house demons.  They think of demons as big ugly beings that are pure evil and cannot understand how they can possibly have these kinds of demons within them, when they do not them self manifest darkness and pure evil.  What people fail to understand is that demons have different functions.  Witchcraft and satanic demons are indeed very dark and very evil and blantantly obvious when they are within in us.  Other types of demons can be simply opposite fruits to the Holy Spirit.  When we manifest love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control they are the fruits of the Holy Spirit manifesting within us.  They are not our own good fruits.  They are from the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. Demons within us can simply manifest as opposite fruits to the Holy Spirit.  These kinds of demons are fear, rejection, hate, sadness, depression, impatience, anxiety etc.... These are all demonic spirits.  Many emotions thoughts and feelings we have are actually not our own. The Bible tells us to deal with them by casting them out. These things are powerful and it is a good idea to restrain them by binding them. When you bind them make sure you forbid them from harming or touching you and your family before trying to deal with them as many of them give a good fight before they will leave their house, which unfortunately is you!  No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house (Mark 3:27, NKJV).  

 Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven (Matthew 18:18, NKJV).

****   The Holy Spirit showed me that when you bind the demons, they have to obey it as it is the Word of God.  If there are any manifestations after this Scripture has been prayed then have faith that they are God-ordained and that God is in control and that nothing will happen that He isn't allowing.

Demons can have what we refer to as legal rights over man's soul. 
See: Does satan have any legal rights.

Many say that a demon cannot dwell with the Holy Spirit – that is correct. The Apostle Paul teaches us that we are tripartite beings, that is, we have three separate parts, spirit, soul and body. There is one high-ranking demon in charge over man’s flesh, with many demons under his authority.  The flesh is the soul (mind, will and emotions and the physical body. Demons will dwell in these parts until the light of the Holy Spirit permeates into each area – this is a process.   Demons cannot dwell within the human spirit once you are born-again as this belongs to God, and is the breath of God. In this article it is my desire to expose as many secrets of the demonic, guided and directed by the Holy Spirit to ensure victory over them. Knowledge is power!  I will be updating this page as I learn :)  

The demons I am going to discuss are the Principalities over people. Like their namesakes in the Bible they are demonic spirits that have the same traits as the ones depicted.  Many worry when they read the description of how big and huge they are in the Bible that they are carrying that exact same huge demonic being. The description in the Bible normally seems to refer to the Principality over a geographical location which of course in it's entirety would be large.  The principalities over man are singular demons with the same traits and functions, but of course not the same size, well at least one would hope not (smile). Each Prince will have many ruler spirits and demonic minions under it's authority.  One person can have more than one Prince but there will always be an order or ranking system in which they work by. The highest Prince in rank will be the one in control of all the others. These strongmen are also the names of gods in the Bible and can go by many different names dependant on the cultures and traditions of each nation. One example of this is Baal.  He can also be known as Apollo, Zeus, Marduk, Ahura-Mazda, Osiris, Tammuz, Dagon, Prometheus, Jupiter, Nimrod, Mithra, Ra, Lucetius, Dyaus, Dionysus, Hermes, Adonis, Pan, Hades, Eros, Uranus, Gaea, Assur, Merodach, Ninus, Shamas, Zeus-Belus, Bacchus, Shiva.  When casting out a Prince it is good idea to beforehand ask God to send His Holy Archangels to asist with this because this is exactly what Daniel did when dealing with the Prince of Persia.  God sent Michael the Archangel to help Daniel defeat the Prince.  It is also a good idea to always command everything under the Prince's authority to leave with it.

Anti-Christ

During my time I have been asked by many people "How do you know when you are demon free"?  Not knowing the answer I sought the Lord on this question.  This is what He showed me: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world (1 John 4:1-3, NKJV). The moment we are born-again a war begins.  Our spirit wars against our flesh.  Jesus Christ has come into our flesh and is beginning to sanctify it. Before you are born again your human spirit is actually anti-Christ as it does not know Christ. After you are born-again the spirit of Anti-Christ remains in our flesh.  The flesh is our mind, will, emotions, heart and physical body. Anti-Christ is all about self.  Self indulgence, self promotion, self pity, self will, what we want, what we need......... The Lord told me If you are not walking in all the fruits of the Holy Spirit then you still have sin and demons in your flesh. Well that was sobering!  I can walk in a few fruits from time to time, but certainly not all of them!  The Holy Spirit had a lot of crucifying to do in my flesh.  I can confess that Jesus Christ has come into my flesh as I know I am born-again and Holy Spirit filled but  I cannot however confess that Jesus Christ has come completely into all my flesh (but He's working on it)! For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find (Romans 7:18, NKJV).  The ultimate transformation that the Holy Spirit wants to do in us is transform our Spirit/Soul and Body into the likeness of Christ.  Being transformed completely is when we are walking in the Glory of Christ. It is possible whilst we live here on earth, but it is about yielding to the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to do it, whilst still trusting Him and remaining faithful. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life (Revelation 2:10, NKJV). The traits of an Anti-Christ spirit are rebellion, stubborn, self, contentious, disobedience, stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart.  I believe that the anti-Christ spirit is the highest ranking spirit over man's flesh and is the last spirit you will be delivered from before you are resurrected into the likeness of Christ. What the Lord showed me was that before you are born again the anti-Christ spirit controls your spirit through your soul as your soul is anti-Christ.  The anti-Christ spirit guards your spirit from being born-again.  Once you make Jesus Christ your Lord and master your spirit which houses the Holy Spirit then rules over your soul.  Your spirit man dominates your soul man.  You will find repentance prayers for removing the traits of a anti-Christ spirit within the Self Deliverance prayers. After doing them remember to cast out the spirit of Anti-Christ and everything under it's authority.  

 Jezebel

In the Bible Jezebel was a woman who married King Ahab.  Jezebel worshipped Astarte the demonic goddess known as Queen of Heaven and the god Baal.  Other names for Astarte are Ashteroth and Ashtoreth.  She coerced her husband to abandon Yahweh and do the same.  He put up asherah poles (translated also as groves) for worship to Astarte and an altar for worship to Baal. This in turn resulted in many of Gods people to turn away from God and worship both Baal and Astarte.  Many deliverance Ministries cast out a demon called Jezebel.  There is no such actual demon called Jezebel, and there never has been. God showed me that Jezebel is a group of functions. These functions mimic the actual Jezebel woman from the Bible. If you call out Jezebel you are calling out the functions operating behind a Baal and Astarte spirit.  These two demons hide behind Jezebel.  If you discern Jezebel then you need to call out Baal and Astarte also.  If you don't cast out the other two then they will simply try and rebuild the functions of Jezebel within you again. 

Baal and Astarte are the main entities seen behind catholicism.  They will convince you that good works is needed in order to please God. The only works that God is pleased with is 'works working in faith' - in other words we obey what God asks us to do because we love Him.  Astarte is the fertility goddess and goes by other names such as Kali in Hinduism.  Astarte is also named as the Queen of Heaven in the Bible.  Baal is known also as the Sun-god.  The name Baal actually means Lord and Master and I believe that the main function of Baal is fear.

So what are the functions of Jezebel? There are many distinct functions. Martyr-based, pleaser-based, sex-based, anger, fear, control, mind-control, domination, pride, manipulation, idolisation of self, rebellion, stubborn, death, destruction, deception and false protection. If you have the gifting of a prophet the Jezebel spirit is a false prophet and will do all that it can to coerce you into delivering false prophecy.  An intimate relationship with God and a knowledge of the Word is imperative if one is to expose this spirit in operation. One of the biggest clues to a woman having a Jezebel spirit is that she wants to wear the pants in a relationship.  The husband will be submissive to her in many areas. The Jezebel spirit can be generational, that is, you will normally find it runs through generations of women in a family. Battling a Jezebel spirit is not an easy feat, but with the power of the Holy Spirit that battle will end in victory.  I have put together prayers that will help deal with the Jezebel spirit as well as many more.  
See: 
Self deliverance Prayers
At the completion of the prayers remember to cast out Jezebel, Baal and Astarte in the name of Jesus Christ if you believe you may have them, including all demons under their authority.  If the three spirits do not leave then that simply means the Holy Spirit needs to take you on a journey of outworking what you have just prayed.  Deliverance and freedom will come, it just may take some time.

Ahab

Where there is a Jezebel there is usually always an Ahab man.  Ahab like Jezebel is the function. There is an unhealthy union between husband and wife that is not pleasing to God.  The Jezebel likes to control and dominate the Ahab man, the family and the home.  The Ahab man is a pleaser.  He is very submissive to the woman and allows her to dominate him to keep the peace.  God cannot bless this unholy union.  I have written a prayer that deals with unholy union.
See: Spirit of Dissension 
I believe the powers behind the Ahab are the same as the Jezebel;  Baal and Astarte. With the Jezebel and the Ahab function one takes on the role of superiority whilst the other takes on the role of submissiveness.  With Ahab there is a lot of rejection he has suffered and loss of one's manhood and dignity.  You will normally find the Ahab man had a Jezebellian/matriarchial mother. Remember to cast out the spirit of Ahab, Baal and Astarte in Jesus name as well as all demons under their authority after going through the Self deliverance Prayers.

Leviathan

The Spirit of Leviathan is described in Job 41.  He is also referred to in Psalm 74:12-14 and Isaiah 27:1.  He is described as a coiling writhing serpent in the Scriptures.  He is known as the King of Pride and is a sea serpent. I took Leviathan back to Greek which is: livyathan {liv-yaw-thawn'} leviathan, sea monster, dragon 1a) large aquatic animal 1b) perhaps the extinct dinosaur, plesiosaurus, exact meaning unknown ++++ Some think this to be a crocodile but from the description in Job 41 this is patently absurd. It appears to ba a large fire breathing animal of some sort. Just as the bomardier beetle has an explosion producing mechanism, so the great sea dragon may have an explosive producing mechanism to enable it to be a real fire breathing dragon. 

The Leviathan spirit can afflict generations of the same family as a result of Freemasonry. If an ancestor has ever been a Grandmaster of a lodge, or into High Level Witchcraft the Leviathan spirit upgrades into what is known as the Leviathan curse.  If one is under the Leviathan curse then anxiety is a sure sign that one is under such curse. You can carry the Leviathan spirit and not the curse.  Lack of love from the father is an open door for the spirit of Anxiety to enter. God showed me that the spirit of anxiety is a spirit under the control of the Leviathan spirit.  The spirit of anxiety wraps himself around your spine to control your central nervous system.  An over-active nervous system is the reason your body becomes flooded with adrenaline during times of fear or other stimulus. When lack of love from the Father enters this sets you up for disaster.  Your life is centred around receiving approval.  You would have suffered much rejection from others. You want approval from God and others.  You strive in your life and circumstances.  You strive to be perfect.  Perfectionism is a spirit who is also under the control of Leviathan. Manifestations of Leviathan are a sore neck and shoulder area.  You carry tension in your body.

 Leviathan is a seductive spirit who sets out to deceive.  He will offer himself to you as false protection and will do all he can to prevent you from trusting God.  He is a control spirit and will want you to be in control of everything, not trusting in God to take control. People who carry Leviathan will struggle with pride and like to exaggerate stories to others in order to look good, or appear spiritually prominent.  They will suffer with false dignity and self righteous pride always trying to justify their actions and convince people that they are right. Usually this is a result of an inferiority complex. Judging and having a critical spirit is another trait of those who carry this spirit. Discord and contention will be prevalent with Leviathan around. Confusion and mind blocking is a major attack of Leviathan. He brings in a spirit of distortion that will twist words so that you will hear differently to what people are saying.  If someone tells you that you look nice today, you will 'hear' sarcasm and believe they are really telling you that you look terrible.  He wants to divide and cause conflict. Leviathan is the great mimic.  He uses Scripture to distort and twist the truth.  He is incredibly religious and knows the Word of God like the back of his hand.  He loves to stop you reading your Bible and will prevent this all he can. Impatience and running ahead ahead of God is something Leviathan trys to outwork in us. This can be due to over-excitement, lack of patience, lack of Godly wisdom and even desiring spiritual prominence. The Bible tells us to be zealous but unfortunately I was overzealous. This overzealousness was one of the major holds of the Leviathan spirit that God wanted to deliver me from. My flesh was over-excited. Instead of using wisdom and Gods timing to reveal the revelations He had given me I did so carelessly, immaturely and in my timing. Instead of producing fruit from these revelations people started to become weary and cautious of me because they were not ready to 'hear' what God was saying. My heart has always been to help others but I was very much aware that there was also an element within me that desired self-recognition and the lime light. This was from wounds of inferiority and lack of self worth. Not only would I seek to glorify God but I would love to glorify self too. I needed to repent to God as well for viewing His glory and works as an idol. I put the need for these things ahead of God because they were exciting when I should have been content with just simply being with and knowing God. I would pray regularly to God for manifestations of His presence lest I become bored. Manifestations of His presence should always be for His glory, not our own selfish desires. Leviathan is depicted as having seven heads which I believe are Pride, RebellionCritical Spirit, Confusion (Stupor), Impatience, Lying tongue (Deception) and Contention (Discord, Hate, Murder). These are reflected in Proverbs 6:16-19:-These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren (Proverbs 6:16-19, NKJV).

 Many people refer to him as a crocodile but the Holy Spirit has always shown me the crocodile as a spirit of deception (ie; crocodile tears) which is one of the heads of Leviathan. The greatest role of Leviathan is to counterfeit the Holy Spirit.  He will pretend to be the Holy Spirit even quoting and using Scripture to deceive. He will stand guard at the door to the Holiest of Holies to prevent you from entering the Throne room, and to also prevent God from entering your heart. To defeat this spirit you need to have a personal relationship with God and learn the Word as this spirit will always twist the Word so it sounds good but is deception. Knowing the Word and asking the Holy Spirit for revelation of the Word to expose deception will thwart this spirit.

In other Cultures such as Maori the Taniwha is none other than the Leviathan Spirit and also the Lochness Monster that has been spotted in Scotland. Using the Self Deliverance prayers on this website goes a long way to defeating this demon.

See: Self Deliverance Prayers
The Sword (Word of God) is your greatest weapon against him. After you have gone through any prayers you feel are applicable to you break the curse of Leviathan then cast him out in the name of Jesus Christ along with all demons under his authority, then pray:- 
In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong, will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; and He will slay the reptile that is in the sea (Isaiah 27:1, NKJV).

For God is my King from of old,Working salvation in the midst of the earth. You divided the sea by Your strength; you broke the heads of the sea serpents in the waters. You broke the heads of Leviathan in pieces, and gave him as food to the people inhabiting the wilderness (Psalm 74:12-14, NKJV).

Python

Python is a huge demonic serpent.  The word python is not actually mentioned in the Bible.  Python is first referenced in Acts when Paul casts the spirit of divination out of the slave girl. Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling. This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” And this she did for many days. But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities (Acts 16:16-19, NKJV). The word divination when taken back to Greek is: Puthon {poo'-thone} from Putho (the name of the region where Delphi, the seat of the famous oracle, was located);  divination 1; 1 1) in Greek mythology the name of the Pythian serpent or dragon that dwelt in the region of Pytho at the foot of Parnassus in Phocis, and was said to have guarded the oracle at Delphi and been slain by Apollo 2) a spirit of divination.
In Hebrew the word is qecem and means divination, witchcraft, divine sentence, divination, witchcraft 1a) of the nations, Balaam 1b) of false prophets 1c) in a good sense (king's lips as oracles). I have always wondered if Python and Leviathan are the same spirit because they have similar functions and they are both described as dragons and coiling writhing serpents.  I have searched the Scriptures and to this day still are not sure if they are one and the same. There are multiple times when serpents are listed in the Bible - some are fiery flying serpents, others sea serpents and even the devil himself is described as a dragon and a serpent so chances are there are multiple serpents each with different names and functions. Python is always seen wrapped around the Asherah pole.  The Asherah Pole represent the worship of Astarte.  Python is the spirit of divination who works with Astarte in fortune telling.  Python we learned in sessions protects Astarte. If you see a fortune teller or a medium then Astarte and Python are the two spirits whom are at the root of the counterfeit power. Python is a religion spirit and a lover of rules and regulations.  Python is the spirit who always whispers you are not good enough and condemns you over and over making you feel worthless. He is an accuser who tells you that are not worthy and drags up your past, trying to use it against you. Self condemnation is his strongest tactic against you.  Rejection is an open door that brings in this spirit.  Grief and self pity along with heaviness will be another way he attempts to drag you down.  Many of the prayers provided deal with the many holds of Python. 

See: Self Deliverance Prayers
After doing the prayers don't forget to command Python and every demon under his authority to leave in Jesus name.

 The Destroyer

In the Hebrew scriptures, Abaddon means "place of destruction," or the realm of the dead. In Hebrew he is known as Abaddon and Apollyon in Greek. He is also known as the "Angel of the Lord" who "smites" and "destroys" human beings (2 Sam. 24:16; Isa. 37:36, Ex. 12:23) and is described as standing between earth and heaven, with a drawn sword in his hand (I Chron. 21:15–16). He is also the King in charge of the locust plague, the plague that is released from the abyss in the end times by the fifth angel. Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power (Revelation 9:1-3, NKJV).

And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon (Revelation 9:11, NKJV). It appears that the destroyer brings with him a lot of death and carnage. The Scriptures tell us that complaining can bring in the destroyer, as can pride. Nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer (1 Corinthians 10:10, NKJV).  

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18, NKJV).  If the destroyer is operating in one's life there may be many curses operating such as barrenness, poverty, lack of good fruit and blessings, divorce, division, chaos, and infirmity.  Cursing oneself because of a lack of self-worth sets the stage for self destruction which brings in the spirit of infirmity.  Freemasonry seems to be another way in which the destroyer can enter one's life. There are many prayers to deal with the destroyer.
