“A demon will follow a person, and choose the weakest moment and place in a person, and jump in.
Demons defile. They’re dirty. They’re all called “unclean”. They make you feel unclean. They fill your mind with dirty, unclean attitudes, emotions, and thoughts. Particularly if you about to read your bible or worship (or be creative, go to do something good). Anything that attacks you at a moment like that is probably a demon. You never feel really pure. You can sing about how wonderful the blood of Jesus is, but there’s something in you that doesn’t respond. Demons defile.
Demons torture. Jesus says in Matthew 18, the one who will not forgive his brother or sister, deliver him to the torturers. That means you and me, if we don’t forgive. If we retain bitterness and resentment and unforgiveness, the sentence of Jesus is to deliver him to the torturers. Who are the torturers? Demons. Very simple. They torture him anyway. They torture with emotion and fear. With guilt. With some kind of uneasy feeling that you haven’t done the right thing, but you can never put your finger on it. They torture you physically.
DEMONS AND ARTHRITIS
I have dealt with many people who have been delivered from the spirit of arthritis. To me, if you look at arthritis, that’s demonic. It twists, it tortures, it incapacitates. Now, please understand that I am not saying that everybody who has arthritis has a demon, but many do. I recall a scene in South Africa some years ago when Ruth and I were ministering together and praying for the sick, and a person, I think it was a woman, came up with arthritis. And I said to her, I want you to know that I am going to deal with this as a demon. And I said is that okay, and she said yes, and Ruth and I prayed, cast the demon out, and she was delivered. But then I thought to myself, why go through this process with everybody individually, because everybody has seen and heard it. It was a large congregation, so I said anybody who needs delivery from arthritis, will you stand up. Well about thirty people stood up. I prayed, commanding the spirit of arthritis to leave them. Now, I said to the people, don’t sit down until you know you have been delivered. And we went on ministering, but after about half an hour, every one of those people had sat down.
Later on, Ruth and I traveled in various parts of South Africa, and we met several people who had been the ones who had stood up and then sat down, and they each testified that they’d been healed. Now please understand, I am not saying that all arthritis is demonic. But if you want to get a real picture of what demons are like, arthritis is a pretty good picture. They torment, they torture, they incapacitate, they bind, they are evil things. And again, there are exceptions to this, but it’s amazing how many people who suffer from arthritis have some kind of bitterness, resentment, or unforgiveness in their heart. I need now say no more. It doesn’t mean that if you have arthritis you have a demon. But if you do have a demon, get rid of it.
(I agree with Derek Prince about arthritis being demonic. The Morgellons entities I have witnessed support this, and the observation of personality traits.)
Demons compel. They make you do things you really don’t want to do. I would say almost any act or habit that is compulsive is probably demonic. Demons also enslave. They make you slaves. Take the demon of alcohol. It enslaves you. You just CANNOT do without your drink. You know it is harmful, you don’t really enjoy it, but you just can’t help yourself. But people can be enslaved by other things. They can be enslaved by television, anger, food, masturbation…Now, put compulsion and enslaving together and you get addiction, and our culture is full of addiction. I would say 99.9% of them are demonic.
From 1 Corinthians 6:12-13: “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.”
So overeating and sexual immorality are specifically mentioned by Paul as possible examples of addictions. And an addict is a slave. And I am sorry to say, but the churches are full of addicts. Not all of them are addicts, but there are many, many good christians who are nevertheless slaves. Slaves of masturbation. slaves of idle talk, slaves of defiling habits. Slaves of wrong attitudes. Slaves of eating and drinking.
I have come to see that my body is a temple for the Holy Spirit, and I’m responsible for how I treat that temple. I am not free to defile it, I am not free to make it anything than less good than it should be. I am very careful about what I eat and what I drink. I’m not under any law, but I try to honor God’s Temple.” – Derek Prince
As disembodied persons, the annunaki continue our enslavement in each of our bodies, doing all they can to keep a person from ascending to their first estate with the Creator. Size, time, space, dimensions… all irrelevant. This is supernatural.
Nothing has changed from the original meaning except prophecy fulfillment in this sinful world. The best of us have demons, or easily could. We are all in battle, whether we acknowledge it or not. So keep your armor ready, wear it always, and remain in praise of Jahweh, declaring His Son, declaring the truth, and fighting. Do not give in. NEVER! The battle for you was won by Christ when his head dropped forward lifeless on the cross.
Satan has already lost.
