Hosea 4:6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge
We are committed to publishing knowledgeable materials that help professing Christians get deliverance from the power of sin.
We have covered in details the demonic forces behind habitual sinning traits and how demons are used by the devil to influence our lives for the worst. This is will help us unveil who is behind the never ending list of destructive activities in your life’s journey. Demons normally leave a tale tale trail of destruction along the way.
Our bodies are meant to be temples of God the Holy Spirit, a house for our soul and our human spirit. Unfortunately they are also suitable resting places for evil spirits.
Evil spirits get legal rights to live in our bodies as a result of our own sins , enherited sins from our ancestors or pronounced curses by servants of satan (but not without a cause)
Idolatry which is found in false religions, worship of ancestors, worshipping material wealth, occult, freemasonry and others, give the evil spirits legal rights of upto 4 generations.
Exodus 20 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me
Ancestral sins come to us as curses and according to the bible verse above, they have a generational lifespan.
It’s also important to note that the sting of a curse is implemented by evil spirits and an evil spirit cannot live in your body without a cause.
Proverbs 26:2 Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest
Jesus came to break these legal rights. He was made a sacrificial lamb for our sins.
Once your sins are forgiven and the legal rights that demons have on you are dealt with, it makes them null and void, setting you free from the curse of the law and by extension, the claws of the devil.
Overcoming the Power of Sin In Our Flesh
Sin has power on us if we don’t confess, renounce, repent and seek forgiveness. If we continue sinning as professing Christians, sin in us progresses to a higher level.
If we are unable to kick off a habitual sin, then it’s no longer a flesh issue but demonic. We can crucify what is of the flesh by making a concious decision to become dead to sin. Galatians 5:24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires
Overcoming the Power Of Sin from a Demonic Influence
However if the flesh refuses to die to sin then we are dealing with a demon. We can’t crucify a demonic issue, instead the demon involved needs to be cast out. Jesus’ disciples were normal people just like us. Some were of higher social standing while others were of lower social class but they all had one thing in common, demons lived in them at some point in their lives
Luke 8: 1… The Twelve were with Him, 2 as well as some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary called Magdalene,from whom seven demons had gone out, 3 Joanna the wife of Herod’s household manager Chuza, Susanna, and many others. These women were ministering to them out of their own means.…
This brings us to the main problem why Christians struggle with sin. They are controlled by demons inside and around them. When they turn around for help from others, they are encouraged to solder on no matter what since every christian in the world is experiencing the same. This type of thinking is a trick from the devil who is using the word of God to continue suppressing you. Being tempted and living in sin are quite different.
1 Corinthians 10: 13 You are tempted in the same way that everyone else is tempted. But God can be trusted not to let you be tempted too much, and he will show you how to escape from your temptations.
The second part of the verse says that God will show you how to escape. This means that it’s expected that you are not to continue living as a slave of sin. If you are, then you may not be hearing from God but a deceiver in you or around you.
Many Christians in ignorance have tried to crucify demonic traits like they will do to the flesh. Demons need to be cast out not crucified else you will end up being frustrated.
A major hurdle on the road to deliverance is the fact that many Christians don’t believe in the existence of evil spirits or the presence of evil spirits in a person who is identified as a christian.
Whereas humans who don’t believe in Jesus Christ have lives that can be compared to unfurrowed land where every type of a demon has a foothold, believing Christians do also live with lots of evil spirits inside of them due to ignorance and carelessness in their christian walk.
The deliverance process is simple yet hard. The process is hard to a Christian who does not believe that evils spirits roam the world seeking a body to dwell in. The process will not start until a person believes that they can be a host of evil spirits and that a struggle with sin could be demonic.
I clearly remember when I started believing in the presence of evil spirits in me. My Christian life turned to the right direction. I came to realise that the enemy was within me. After this, my deliverance process started in a very beautiful way. Every time an evil spirit gave me up, the oppression in my spirit reduced and I looked forward for more. I yielded more to the Holy Spirit and He continued pointing at areas of darkness where evil spirits were living within me. Hosts of more demons gave me up and others were cast out of me.
Many demons will give you up without even being cast out when you become aware of their existence in your life. When you don’t believe then you won’t be aware and even if someone tried to cast them out of you they will still come back because your thoughts protects them and gives them rest. Mathew 12: 43 When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, it passes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ On its arrival, it finds the house vacant, swept clean and put in order. 45 Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and dwell there; and the final plight of that man is worse than the first. So will it be with this wicked generation.”
The problem with demons is that they are not honourable or loving sweethearts but intelligent and incredibly wicked-sorrowful-loveless- restless spiritual beings without a body. Once they are in your body, they will cost you sleep, peace, vigour, freedom, confidence, love, affection and joy. You will always be fearful, short tempered, critical of others, restless, very materialistic, yearning for love or affection, confused, unfaithful , etc.
Christians need to live repentant lives and not go on sinning because when a demon is cast out once from a person, it goes out there looking for help from more wicked demons. Once they come back and live in that person, they make the later part of that christian worse than before they were saved. If such a christian does not drop off from church or fellowship but continues in that state of un-repentance, they evolve to being agents of satan becoming building blocks of a fake bride of Christ. This is very dangerous because they consciously or/and unconsciously influence true believers around them to abandon sincerity and purity of the gospel. This effectively turns the beautiful gospel of Jesus Christ into a religious strife where potential believers are turned away from the nastiness of what is being offered to them as Christianity.
Another sign of the presence of evil spirits is the affliction of your physical body. Your body may suffer from allergies, non absorption of nutrients and not responding to medicine for treatable diseases. Your immune system is affected and simple infections become chronic and kills you.
There was this lady who had broken her leg 3 times. A demon in her prevented the bone from healing properly. When she broke it the third time, the doctor said the leg will not heal. Fortunately for her, they attended a healing service where the preacher through discernment didn’t pray for healing first but instead started by casting out the evil spirit and then prayed for her healing. A few weeks later her leg was healed. I wonder how many of people are dying due to treatable ailments because of a presence of a demon. How can we be delivered from evil spirits if we don’t believe they exist. Even Jesus could not send the disciples without instructing them to drive out demons in people.
Mathew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
If you randomly picked an unvaccinated dog from the street, Irrespective of how beautiful it looks, it is highly likely it will be full of internal and extenal parasites. I don’t have to elaborate.
Sadly, professing Christians live as slaves of impure spirits because of lack of knowledge. This makes the words of Hosea the prophet true in Hosea 4:6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge…
We will look at the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ here on earth and see how He dealt with evil spirits
Jesus outlined five key ministry areas
Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor“
It was on that Sabbath day at a synagogue in Nazareth that Jesus read his mission statement from the book of Isaiah 61:1,2, Isaiah 58:6, marking the beginning of His work here on earth. These words were also a fulfilment of the prophesy by Isaiah about 700 years earlier.
1. Proclaiming God’s word that equips us fully for our Journey to heaven
2. Buying our freedom from the devil. Our sins and our ancestors sins make us by default prisoners and slaves of the devil
Hebrew 9:12 (NLT) : With his own blood–not the blood of goats and calves–he entered the Most Holy Place once for all time and secured our redemption forever
3. Getting rid of our spiritual blindness. The presence of the Holy Spirit in us gives us discernment. This helps us in the spiritual warfare
John 16:3 (NIV) But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come
4. Lifting all yokes of oppression and affliction that the devil has placed on us.
Mathew 11: 27 All things have been entrusted to Me by My Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him. 28 Come to Me,all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light
5. Declaring and marking the beginning of the kingdom of God among us, a period that the prophets and the men of faith were eagerly waiting for.
Heb 11:13 (NIV) All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.
Luke 17: 20 Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, 21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
‘Harmless’ adultery is a form of intense love relationship with the world. Persons who easily bond with the world and are unable to free themselves are likely to be hosting evil spirits in their lives. There is tendency of a person who is operating under the influence of evil spirits to be worldly.
Worldliness has it’s cause in spiritual blindness and outright rejection of God.
1 John 2:16 For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world
It all starts in a committed christian when an evil spirit creeps in ‘harmlessly’ through the desires of our flesh. Then, what is pleasing to the eye or what feels good or what gives us power and respect takes centre stage. If we were experiencing a glow of the love of God in our hearts we then start believing that what we can see , feel or acquired is the source and what will sustain this Joy. Before we know it, it’s no longer our flesh that is driving us but a demonic spirit inside of us. The spirit becomes a slave driver and pushes us to have strong desires for what the material world can offer, effectively replacing the love of God in us with money, boyfriend, girlfriend, family ties, social friends, drinking, drugs, etc. We then start building our successes and happiness around these influences.
At this point the devil has done his job by managing to land a demon in your body completely aligned with your thoughts. You will never know that the thoughts are not yours. It all started with the lust of the flesh. A sincere christian will notice that the unconditional joy is gone and mood swings become the order of the day. God has been replaced by other loves.
God has stated clearly in James 4:5 that His Holy Spirit longs to have a close fellowship with us, no wonder He watches in envy how well we bond with other loves other than His. He calls these relationships though not necessarily sexual , acts of adultery
James 4:4-5 You adulterous people,don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us ?
God’s love will not grow in us again unless we ditch other loves. How do we do that? Examine your life and if you suspect you have a demonic influence pushing your life, seek deliverance from evil spirits. Humble yourself and yield to the Holy Spirit, repent, confess, renounce and let evils spirits be cast out of you.
The life of a born again Christian should agree with the scripture in 1 John 3:9 “No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God”.
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places” Ephesians 6:12 NLT
It’s hard for just anyone to see and agree with what you are fighting against. Even those that will see a trail of personal destructive events and sicknesses will have a different explanation for it.
God would wish to equip you for this battle.
You may need to give yourself time to grow deeply in this area before involving yourself in the deliverance ministry. God will show you the areas in your life that are exposed to the devil and are therefore strongholds that the enemy army of demons use to wage war against you. This will enable you not to fight blindly and give up. Many preachers have genuinely come out fighting and punching but only to fade away wounded or killed because they are fighting an enemy who has a stronghold within them. You can’t fight the old experienced devil when not in partnership with the Holy Spirit. You can’t be in partnership with the Holy Spirit until you learn how to obey His directives. You must learn not to quench the Holy Spirit
The anti-Christ spirits will fight you from many strongholds such as harboured roots of bitterness , unforgiveness , ignorance of God’s word, sexual immorality, unconfessed sins and living a general defiled spiritual lifestyle. The reason you have these strongholds of satan could be from events or agents within your immediate spiritual and physical environment that have developed over a period of time.
God would wish to deal with these areas first. You have to go through repentance, forgive, seek knowledge and education from the Holy Spirit. Seek partnership with the Holy Spirit in whatever you do
Building your life through the Holy Spirit
If you wish the Holy Spirit to build your spiritual life, there are a number of topics discussed in our blog page that can be of big help to you .
Be aware of devil’s servants
John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
There is no light and therefore no love or victory in the lives of those that live in long dark shadows of sin. If you wish to follow Christ then be ready to expose sin and not hide it. If what is inside of you can’t tolerate God’s light and purity then read here about deliverance .
What is your immediate spiritual environment ?
1 Corinthians 5 9: I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10: not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. 11:But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.
Mathew 7:15 Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
My experience shows that, the people the bible is warning us about in the above scriptures are close Christians who harbour a seed of rebellion towards God. These are the type of Christians who lord themselves over you and wish to be worshipped, held in awe and reverence . If You don’t, they ignore you , deny you fellowship and generally give you a cold shoulder. There is normally no life in what they discuss with anybody but are preoccupied with topics about materialism, personal attainments and slander.
This behaviour can come as a shock to both young and old in faith. It’s a strategy that our enemy uses to deny the body of Christ spiritual nourishment and true fellowship. These habits also interfere with spiritual growth and revival within our social environment, a bigger picture of what the devil is planning daily for the church of Christ.
Any Christian who behaves this way is actually a vessel of the devil and may need to be told on the face to repent and if they refuse, keep a safe distance from them

In some extreme cases like within a family, employer-employee, boss-employee or parent-child relationships, tonnes of vile and pure emotional evil are spewed towards the target like a foul gas coming from the very breath of hell. Some people and even children have gone on the way of self destruction. Some have committed suicide. Since this is the work of a very evil spirit of manipulation, the victims feel helpless. A spirit like a Jezebel spirit uses witchcraft on the victim and everybody around them. This creates a blanket of deception. That’s why the victim feels helpless, lonely and concludes that nobody understands. This is a tactic is used by this spirit to push the victim to self destruct. The host of this evil spirit may live OK and unsuspectingly among other people other than it’s targets, while in private engaging in all manner of evil practices.
How do you recognise servants of the devil? This can be by special spiritual discernment or by general guidance through the scriptures
Jesus taught us how to in the following scripture
Mathew 7:16 By their fruit you will recognise them.Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
What are the fruits to watch for? Paul writes to the Galatians about these fruits
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no Law…
What is the opposite of these fruits?
Galatians 5 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God
What is the future for all unrepentant sinners?
Revelation 21:8 “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshippers, and all liars–their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulphur. This is the second death.”
