Discerning The Holy Spirit And Satanic Hindrances

Hello everyone. I hope you had a blessed weekend!

A demon is believed to be a force that can be conjured and controlled. They are also believed to have the ability to possess or inhabit the body of humans and the only way to rid the person of them is to conduct deliverance and/or Exorcism. Demons are portrayed differently in different cultures. Some believe demons to be actual physical beings that can take the form of anything, including animals. Others consider the real demons as more of a spiritual force of evil battling for one's soul. They  have been feared and written about in almost every culture in one form or another. Demons tremble at the name of of Jesus.

You must always test any spirit or "guide" by asking if they believe Jesus is the son of God and if they were sent from God . You'll hear replays of all the hurtful things that any ex or current spouse or boyfriends/girlfriend has said to you no matter how many years have passed. Demons will always remind us of anything that cause us real emotional pain. Ever wonder why you have such a hard time forgetting those heart breaking words that someone you loved said to you as a child? Demons are helping it stay very fresh in your mind. They will always make sure these memories creep up at the worst possible times. Especially when we are going through events in life that causes us to go through minor depression whether was a loved one who passed away or broken heart or something someone very close to us that we thought we trusted ended up hurting us.

Demons are more familiar with your mental archives than you are and they will without a You will never win this spiritual battle in your own strength. You will only be successful when you draw your strength from the power base, God Himself. There you will find the strength and stamina to "stand against the wiles of the devil" (Ephesians 6:11) Satan's Nature is the nature of a man that causes him to act as he does. The same principle exists as we try to better understand Satan. John identified the devil as the originator and chief practitioner of sin (1 John 3:8). He further described Satan as “that wicked one” (1 John 5:18). Jesus called Satan a liar (John 8:44) and thief (John 10:10).

One huge step in recognizing The enemy, is to understand his amo and general personality for lack of better words. When "thoughts” come to your mind you can test them and see which voice the thought seems to line up with. For example, one thing I often hear, almost daily, is a thought that goes something like this, “God ignores my cries and prayers" The enemy wants you to think he's not listening to your prayers anymore. He obtains great pleasure causing people to suffer. It's so easy to entertain these kinds of thoughts because there is partial truth to them. (God does indeed control everything and certainly could stop whatever is happening even though He has chosen not to.) However, it’s not enough to ignore these thoughts—we must rebuke them and speak the truth in place of that lie from hell. We are truly just leaving ourselves open to new attacks of a similar nature if we don't rebuke these lies. Make sure it lines up with the Word Of God.

Demons will attack your emotions and body at any possible chance they can get. They are very patient. As I have said before they will wait till the worst possible time in your life and then attack when you are at the breaking point and can't take anymore. If they can oppress you ( get you to feel emotionally depressed) they can get you to believe it’s a sign that you've done something wrong or you're not worthy of God's love for mercy. Your mind is one of the main things they attack. Satan is the father of all lies we must remember this all times. All of the horrifying conclusions we draw during the dark night as we try to fall asleep causes us to start feeling that the Lord has abandoned us are really misinterpretations of the very real emotional and past physical and psychological events we've gone through in the past or the recent past. They always have perfect timing, as I said they are very patient.

As humans we are so very easy to mislead. It is so very vital that we learn how to discern between God and the enemy. It is so very important that we find a way to become familiar and admit our own weaknesses. We all fall for the negative mental flashbacks. Understand that it takes a lot of time and discomfort to learn how to catch the enemy in the act of deceiving you. When he see's you start to make strides in this area,  he will instantly react with a new strategy that is much more invasive and also intense in their attacks.

We need to put the focus on the Lords Angels! Demons tremble at the name of Jesus Christ  and even his angels. I can tell you that right now. Why not put the word out on these good angels and not just fallen angels? There is so much comfort and solace there, no fear and no intimidation. The enemy will use our mind against us. That's his number one tactic.

The bible states we should all think of good things. If the hindrance you face is coming in the form of unpleasant thoughts and fearful imaginations, that’s not The Lord speaking to you. That’s the devil’s way to get us into doubt, fear and unbelief.

Remember, we are not wrestling against flesh and blood—but we are wrestling. The key is to wrestle with the enemy and not with God. In other words, we don’t want to be resisting God when we should be resisting the enemy and we don’t want to be cooperating with the enemy when we should be cooperating with God. 'The enemy is walking around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.' God’s eyes roam to and fro over the earth to strengthen the ones whose hearts are fully committed to him (2 Chron. 16:9).

“Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and his Word, and He shall bring it to pass” (Psalm 37:5) No devil in hell can keep you from God’s will if you are protected by your faith in Jesus Christ. His plan.

Angels bring assistance in time of need

The LORD, the God of heaven, brought me from the home of my father and from the land of my relatives, and he solemnly promised me that he would give this land to my descendants. He will send his angel before you, so that you can get a wife there for my son. (Gen 24:7)

If you feel the Devil is attacking your mind with fears, worries, anxiety etc., you can pray in the Name of Jesus and resist and overcome him!--Jesus said, "Behold, I give you power over all the power of the Enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."-Luke 10:19. This power is YOURS if you believe His Word, claim His promises and pray in the Name of Jesus! In fact, if you are filled with faith and His Holy Spirit, you have the authority to resist the Devil directly, just like Jesus and His early disciples did. Remember we do NOT have to be in bondage to Satan and his army of demons.
