Handling The Devil's Attacks & Spiritual Attacks

Hello my friends. I hope everybody had a great weekend and stayed warm most of all. Lol. 40 degrees here in Florida for the entire weekend. I know what you're thinking "geez that's not a big deal others are in 20° temperature" I realize some under zero. I am a wimp. Lol. Florida girl home grown. I can't handle very cold weather.

Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual warfare is an activity by Christians whereby Satan and demons are fought, using a variety of methods and prayers depending on the group, mostly a lot of prayer and fasting. From a biblical point of view, spiritual warfare is the cosmic war of good versus evil: its battles are fought daily between God and Satan; between the Christian Church and the world fueled by our spiritual enemy; and within every child of God, between the Holy Spirit and the lusts of the carnal flesh. The clear meanings of good and evil, as defined by God l than man, are revealed within the verses of the Holy Bible and the life of Jesus Christ.

The natural reaction to a spiritual attack is fear then worry. If we stay in that place of panic, we pray and speak the truth. And if we camp in fear's tent, we shrink back from the joy and power Jesus wants to give us in the midst of the battle. Ultimately, this comes down to a question of God's bigness. Do we believe God is bigger than our worry? Than Satan's attack? Then the fears that keep us up at night? We have a choice to give into fear thinking or surrender it to God. Of course, we initially feared and freaked out a bit.

These vile creatures know our every weakness and fears. I was once told by a client who under went deliverance that "I'd rather have dealt with physical pain the last six months then deal with the mental pain inside of my head that was being caused". He almost ended up committed but thank God no. He was delivered. If it had not had been committed most likely for a very long time. We are going around saying you're under demonic oppression you never know how people are going to react or what they're going to say.  You can't trust people anymore.

The Bible makes it clear that there are demons, or evil spirits, in the world that interfere in people's lives (Ephesians 6:11-19). Evil forces, powers, influence the minds of individuals, bringing upon unusual behavior that the individual isn't known to do, changes in personality, unfounded illness that you know is there but no one can find a cause, suicide, inability to function normally. As a result of these forces, people can become a danger to themselves and to their families and friends. Even co-workers.

The Book of Daniel, chapter ten, provides one of the most striking examples of spiritual warfare found in Scripture. Remember when Daniel was held in captivity in a foreign land due to a great spiritual conflict, which led to the conquest of Israel and Judah. He resorts to intense prayer, which includes fasting, to seek guidance from God, verses 2,3. He receives a miraculous vision and word, verses 5–9 (which introduce. 10–12), from one having the appearance of a man (cf. verses 16,18), who may have been an angel, but whose description in verses 5,6, seems to match that of Christ in Revelation 1:13–16. Daniel’s earthly conflict extends to the heavenly realm, as the spiritual messenger was delayed by a demon, until being assisted by an archangel, verses 12–14. Strong resistance was met due to the importance of the answer to Daniels’s prayer, as it is a prophecy on Satanic activity

These dark forces are always at work. They never stop. they cause humans to have emotional trauma. The most common are:

Emotional pain, depression, low energy levels, constant fatigue, suicidal thoughts and/or attempts, drug and/or alcohol addictions, unhealthy addictions, over eating, hearing voices in the mind, strange or weird thoughts that don't seem your own, being directed by an inner voice, most mental illness, mental or emotional instability, poor concentration, mood swings, multiple personalities, confusion, deep anger/aggressiveness, nightmares or any negative/terrifying dreams/day dreams, sleep paralysis, anxiety, paranoia, constant negative or fear based thoughts and/or emotions, waking up tired after a full night's rest, criminal and/or violent behaviors, sexual abuse, mental noise (unclear thinking), dark thoughts and impulses, unexplained physical pain or problems without any known cause, constantly sabotaging yourself or others, negative beliefs, religious fanaticism, abusing or attacking others either emotionally, physically etc., energy stealing among people, limited/lower consciousness, feelings of giving everything up, feeling your life is being controlled by something outside of yourself, constantly trying to control or have power over others, loss of your purpose/path in life, loss of your power/soul and more.

Just live a positive life then get rid  of anybody in your life that's bringing you down. Focus on Jesus Christ he is the only way. The devil hates humans and sends his demons out on assignments to sabotage us. This world has gotten so bad but nothing is too big for our Lord, remember that. There is not a problem that he cannot fix. Jesus promises us in His name we are safe from the enemy. Make God your saving grace.
