In TRUTH, there is a spiritual warfare battle
going on between God and satan. What are they warring over?
YOUR SOUL ...
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the
weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the
pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high
thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into
captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a
readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
LET'S GET TO KNOW
MORE ABOUT OUR ENEMY
AS TO KNOW HIS PRESENCE IN OUR LIVES
THE DEVIL ... SATAN
Satan has a plan and has
from the beginning ... His plan is to deceive the souls of mankind in a vain
attempt to become God. Satan came in the form of a serpent in the Garden of Eden
to deceive Eve which then brought Adam into what is now known as the
If you are a Christian, you know that as much as you
try, you find yourself sinning yet again. Did you know that this is
because of what is known as the Original Sin? This Original Sin is the
sinful nature that every human has inherited because of the original
sinful choice that Adam and Eve made thousands of years ago in the
Garden of Eden when tempted by satan.
Due to this choice made by the first man and woman
... The sin is now in the flesh of all mankind and when we are born,
we are destined to death. UNLESS we make the CHOICE to believe in
Jesus. When we become Christians, we are REBORN and receive
Salvation and Eternal Life. This
New Covenant of Grace ... Has the
destiny of death made void by the
Blood of Jesus.
1 John 3:8
He that committeth sin
is of the devil; for
the devil sinneth
from the beginning.
For this purpose the Son
of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
by one man sin entered into the world,
and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men,
for that all have sinned.
The devil was a murderer from the beginning, he is a liar, and the father of it.
Ye are of your father the devil,
and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a
lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because
I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And
if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's
words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
Let’s take a look at the story of how this Original
Sin came about.
And the LORD God took the man (Adam),
and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the
garden thou mayest freely eat:
But of the tree of the knowledge of
good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof
thou shalt surely die.
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be
alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the
ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every
fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would
call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature,
that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle,
and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but
for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD
God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He
took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a
woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now
bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called
Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man
leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife:
and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man
and his wife, and were not ashamed.
Think about that for a second. Once you know the difference between
good and evil, you become AWARE and therefore responsible for the evil
that you CHOOSE to do. Obviously this is because then you now know
better and CHOOSE to sin anyway.
But if you don’t know the difference between good
and bad, is it sin? For example, if a baby took a piece of candy off a
stand in the checkout aisle of the grocery store while his mother
unloaded the groceries onto the counter, it certainly is not stealing,
because a baby doesn’t KNOW any better.
This tree in the Garden of Eden gives one the
knowledge of what is good and what is evil. In other words, at that
time, Adam didn’t know what evil was, but if he ate from the tree, he
would then have a conscience, knowing right from wrong.
Some people believe that it was an apple that Adam
and Eve ate. BUT ... The TRUTH is that it does not say it was an
apple. Some others believe that the forbidden fruit is an euphemism
for sex, but the TRUTH is, that it doesn’t say that either. It says
that it was the Tree of Knowledge between Good and Evil and the fruit
from said tree would do just that. Make them AWARE of SIN.
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to
him it is sin.
Let's go back to the Garden of Eden ...
serpent was more subtil than any
beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the
woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the
garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit
of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in
the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it,
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
serpent said unto the
Ye shall not surely die:
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then
your eyes shall be opened,
and ye shall be as gods,
knowing good and evil. And
when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it
was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one
wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat,
and gave also unto her husband
with her; and he did eat.
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they
were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made
themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the LORD God
walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his
wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst
the trees of the garden.
And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art
thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was
afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And He said, Who
told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree,
whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she
gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto
the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said,
serpent beguiled me, and I
And the LORD God said unto the
serpent, Because thou hast
done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every
beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt
thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between
thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall
bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and
thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and
thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
And unto Adam He said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the
voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I
commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the
ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days
of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to
thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of
thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground;
for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust
shalt thou return.
And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother
of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God
make coats of skins, and clothed them. And the LORD God said,
Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:
and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree
of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden,
to till the ground from whence he was taken. So He drove out the
man; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden Cherubims,
and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of
the tree of life.
We’re gonna go behind the scenes now for a few
moments and do a little background check on the
that appears in our story of Original Sin.
Who is this serpent? Most people would say … the
devil … or satan … as if there is only one. That is simply not true.
There is more than one devil.
is one devil called satan, who is
the prince or leader of all devils, and his name is Lucifer.
And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said,
Legion: because many
devils were entered into
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest
well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
How art thou fallen
from Heaven, O Lucifer,
son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground,
which didst weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into Heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the
stars of God: I will sit
also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the
north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be
like the most High. Yet
thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider
thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble,
that did shake kingdoms ...
Lucifer (son of morning) wanted to be above God.
"I will be like the Most High" he said.
Satan is not omniscient, in other words, he does not possess infinite
knowledge and/or understanding, so he cannot read your mind. What we commonly refer to as “the devil” are
really a multitude of fallen (traitor) angels that turned away from
God to pursue evil. So this "devil" that entered the garden in the
form of a snake ... May or may not be Satan himself.
It is believed that it IS satan because of this
scripture which was speaking of satan.
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious
stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the
beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the
carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes
was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Thou art the anointed cherub
(Angel) that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy
mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the
stones of fire.
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
created, till iniquity was found in thee.
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee
with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as
profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O
covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty,
thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will
cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may
behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of
thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I
bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I
will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that
behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be
astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be
Full of wisdom, perfect in beauty. He was in
Garden of Eden. God created him and gave him everything. "The anointed
cherub that covereth." He was upon the holy mountain of God. He was
perfect from his creation until sin was found in him. Covering cherub from the
midst of stones of fire. His beauty and wisdom caused vanity (heart
uplift) ... He defiled sanctuaries by the abundance of sin. God will
Satan has had his plan to have humans sin and be
sentenced to hell along with him and actually waits in line to accuse God's
people to see that his plan comes to pass. Satan presents himself before the
Lord on Sons of God day. Satan walks to and fro upon the earth, under God's
Now there was a day when the sons
of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among
them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the
LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down
in it. And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that
there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that
feareth God, and escheweth evil? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth
Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his
house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of
his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth thine hand
now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. And the
LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon
himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the
This devil named satan is known as the god of
The god of this world blinds men that don't believe.
2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the
god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them which
believe not, lest the light of the
glorious Gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
This devil named satan is also known as the
prince of power of the air.
The spirit that works in children of disobedience.
Wherein in time past ye walked according
to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the
air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.
This devil named satan is also known as the
prince of this world.
The prince of this world shall be cast out.
Now is the judgment of this world: now
shall the prince of this world be cast out.
Hereafter I will not talk much with you:
for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
And the prince of this world is to be judged.
Of judgment, because the prince
of this world is judged.
The devil tempts all, even Jesus was tempted by
Being forty days
tempted of the devil.
And in those days He did eat nothing: and when they were ended, He afterward
hungered. And the devil said unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, command this
stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That
man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. And the devil,
taking Him up into an high mountain, shewed unto Him all the kingdoms of the
world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto Him, All this power will I
give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to
whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it
is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.
And he brought Him to Jerusalem, and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple, and
said unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it
is written, He shall give his Angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in
their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against
a stone. And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the
Lord thy God.
Satan departs if you resist him.
And when the devil had ended all
the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
But if you submit to GOD and resist the devil, he
therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
The world is the devil's until end.
And the devil said unto him, All
this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto
me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
The devil plots to deceive us so we are to put on
the armor of God.
Put on the whole armour of
God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Your adversary, the devil, seeks to devour as a
lion. Resist him with Faith in JESUS.
1 Peter 5:8-9
Be sober, be vigilant; because
your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may
devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are
accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
The devil named satan is also known as the
dragon. The dragon which deceiveth the whole world is to be cast to earth and
his angels with him. He accuses the brethren night and day to God. You can
overcome him by the
BLOOD OF THE LAMB. He is come down
knowing he has but a short time, with great wrath. He persecutes woman
with man child then makes war with remnant of seed. Note that satan accuses
Christians day and night before God.
And the great dragon was
cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the
whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with
him. And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, Now is come salvation, and
strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ:
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God
day and night. And they overcame him by
the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not
their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye Heavens, and ye that dwell in
them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come
down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short
time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the
woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings
of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where
she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the
serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman,
that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped
the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the
dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went
to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God,
and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
In latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. In particular during
the End Times.
1 Timothy 4:1
Now the Spirit speaketh
expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils ...
After the End Times is over and Antichrist is
defeated by Jesus at Armageddon ...
Satan is cast into pit for 1000 years. This is during the Millennium.
And he laid hold on the dragon,
that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
Satan cast into lake of fire forever.
And the devil that
deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and
the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Today ... satan knows that his
time is short. He is going to do some horrible things during the End Times
is not all powerful - all knowing - or everywhere at once. Satan cannot read
your mind. Satan can only put thoughts in your mind by use of your senses and
watch your reactions. YOU can choose to expose the thought to the light of
There are other spirits that
work with and for satan to try and get you to choose sin and evil. There are
many different types of spirits. What you must visualize is that these spirits
have no flesh so they cannot "experience" the sin in a fleshly manner so they
like to use humans to do their bidding and then they can physically experience
Evil spirits ... Just the sound of the
words can bring a tingle to your spine. But we are taught in the bible
that spirits, both good and bad, are all around us. In fact, God is a
God is a Spirit:
and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in TRUTH.
But this study is about evil spirits and
spirits in general, so let us proceed.
It says in the bible, that before the
flood of Noah's time, there were some angels in Heaven that came down
from Heaven and had children with human women and mixed the angelic with
And it came to pass, when men began
to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God (Angels) saw the daughters of men that they were
fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said,
My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet
his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the
earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in
unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became
mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And God saw that the
wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of
the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the
LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
According to the
BOOK OF ENOCH, the
offspring were giants. These fallen angels taught the world vanity, pride, and
taught them how to build weapons and every foul thing.
God saw that the world was foul
after this and flooded the world. He took the fallen angels and placed them in
the pit. The children of the fallen angels and women are now these evil spirits
that we will be studying. Satan now uses these spirits to do his will. God also
used these evil spirits to punish sinners in the Old Testament and may still do
The intent of these evil
spirits is to have you choose satan over God. They seek to find a suitable
dwelling place inside humans. They are in spirit form now and have no way to
experience flesh unless they inhabit a body. The problem is that they must get
the soul of the body to agree without actually letting them know what they are
doing. So they give thoughts of lust, fear, anger, pride, greed or whatever
their desire is, and try and get you hooked on it so they can dwell in you.
Soon, they take over and it is no longer the person they have possessed that is
We will be searching the Bible
for evidence of how we can overcome these evil spirits as to defend ourselves
against their intent.

spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare
for my life, to cause me to die? And Saul sware to her by the LORD, saying, As
the LORD liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. Then
said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said,
Bring me up Samuel.
And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake
to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. And the king said
unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou?
And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods
ascending out of the earth. And he said
unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is
covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped
with his face to the ground, and bowed himself.
And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted
me, to bring me up?

This is just a few examples
of how it is common knowledge that these spirits exist. I would like to touch on
the topic of spirits entering humans a bit cuz it is a lil confusing so let's
use the Bible to bring peace and find TRUTH.
term "Exorcism" means to remove a spirit from someone who is possessed by
said spirit. It began back when Jesus was ousting spirits from those
possessed with devils. Even His Apostles were given the gift but oft times had
trouble with some, because they lacked
Bible, 7 men that tried to exorcise a demon were surprised when the demon said "
Jesus I know and Paul I know, but who are you. The next thing the 7 men knew was
they were getting physically beaten by the entity.
Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them

Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and
chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus
I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was
leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled
out of that house naked and wounded. And this was known to all the Jews and

ANOTHER IMPORTANT MATTER ...
Many feel that because satan is
the enemy of our souls that we can go around cussing and cursing him.
The Bible is CLEAR on this matter:
2 Peter 2:10-11
But chiefly them that
walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government.
Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of
dignities. Whereas angels, which
are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before
The wording of these
scriptures doesn't reflect the resistance of mankind against human government
... But rather mankind speaking against supernatural powers and authority. This
is proven when it says ANGELS fear to bring accusation against these
"dignities" ... Angels certainly do not fear to bring accusation against a
human. Furthermore, the word "dignities" comes from the Greek word "doxa," which
is translated as being "supernatural powers" ...
The book of Jude further
Likewise also these filthy
dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
Yet Michael the archangel, when
contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses,
not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
Our enemy, satan is of such
high authority that even Michael "durst not bring against him a railing
accusation but simply said "the Lord rebuke you" ...
If even Michael ...
An Archangel chooses not accuse satan
of being this or that but only says "The Lord rebuke thee" ... Shouldn't we as
mere humans follow suit?
Our enemy of the soul ... Satan
was chosen by God to be an anointed cherub ...
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast
upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the
stones of fire.
This "Anointing" is where GOD chooses a person
to be in authority.
Saul was anointed king. However, like satan, he
disobeyed God. This caused God to take away his Holy Spirit and give him an evil
1 Samuel 16:14
But the Spirit of the LORD
departed from Saul, and an evil spirit
from the LORD troubled him.
David's music could make this evil spirit leave him. Yet, years later in
jealousy ... Saul chased David in the wilderness seeking to kill him. It turned
out David was given opportunities to kill King Saul during these chasings, but
DID NOT. When asked why David did not kill King Saul when he had the
opportunity David said because Saul was anointed by GOD and he would in no way
do him any harm.
1 Samuel 24:6
And he said unto his men, The
that I should do this thing unto my master,
the LORD's anointed,
to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the
anointed of the LORD.
Let us ALL choose to do as
Michael and David chose to do and NOT curse or bring railing accusation against
ANY supernatural powers or those chosen by
God in the past, but rather let God be
After all, God created satan which means satan belongs to God. The Bible is
clear that God IS allowing satan to finish out his "term" until he is thrown
into the pit for 1000 years and then into the Lake of Fire ... Forever.
Here is wisdom …
Now the WORKS OF THE FLESH are manifest, which are
these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft,
HATRED, variance, emulations, WRATH, STRIFE, seditions, heresies, Envyings,
murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not
inherit the kingdom of God. But the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness,
temperance: against such there is no law.
As you can see … Anger, hatred,
wrath, etc. are fruits of the FLESH and NOT the Holy Spirit …
For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and TRUTH.
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
I hope I have proven the TRUTH of what is acceptable unto
our Lord. The next time you are lured away by our enemy of the soul and
afterward are disgusted with yourself for falling victim yet again, don't go get
GO GET JESUS !!!
EVIL SPIRITS LAWS
The Bible gives us laws by which to free yourself
from these entities. Let's do a lil searching, shall we?
More than one spirit can occupy man.
And when He was come to the other side into
the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two possessed with devils, coming
out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And,
behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of
God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good
way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought Him,
saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And He
said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of
swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place
into the sea, and perished in the waters.
Jesus gave His Apostles power over unclean spirits to cast them
And when He had called unto Him
his twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast
them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Cast out devils free of charge.
Heal the sick, cleanse the
lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely
When an evil spirit is removed, it seeks another
body to control.
When the unclean spirit is gone out of
a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he
saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come,
he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with
himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and
dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so
shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
Certain evil spirits can't be removed without much prayer -
And Jesus said unto them, Because
of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder
place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Some spirits speak out and can be loud upon exit.
And there was in their synagogue a man
with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to
do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee
who thou art, the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy
peace, and come out of him. And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried
with a loud voice, he came out of him.
When contending with a spirit ... Rebuke - order it to come out and return no more.
In this story, it shows you need NOT the FAITH of the subject but another's
And one of the multitude answered and
said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a
And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with
his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast
him out; and they could not. He answereth him, and saith, O faithless
generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him
unto me. And they brought him unto Him: and when He saw him, straightway the
spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. And He asked
his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a
child. And oft times it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to
destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst
believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
And straightway the father of the child
cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe;
help thou mine unbelief. When Jesus saw that the people came running together,
He rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge
thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
Even non-apostles removed evil spirits in Jesus' name.
And John answered Him, saying,
Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not
us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. But Jesus said, Forbid
him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can
lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our part.
For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because
ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
To cast out devils you need to believe.
And these signs shall follow them
that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with
new tongues ...
Jesus gives you power over the enemies (evil spirits) and nothing shall hurt you but rejoice not that
are subject unto you but rather that you are written in book of life.
I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy:
and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not,
that the spirits are subject unto you;
but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
Even handkerchiefs of Paul could remove evil spirits.
And God wrought special miracles by the
hands of Paul: So that from his body were
brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons,
and the diseases departed from them, and
the evil spirits went out of them.
contending with the devil do not bring accusations but say, the Lord rebuke thee.
Yet Michael the Archangel,
when contending with the devil
he disputed about the body of Moses,
durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke
AS YOU CAN SEE ... IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BE
SPIRITUAL WARFARE SO THAT WE MAY BE PREPARED ...
PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye
may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not
against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of
God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done
all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,
and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with
the preparation of the Gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of
Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the
wicked. And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication
in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and
supplication for all saints
