- The spirit world is not for amateurs, spiritual knowledge brings GREAT responsibility. We are accountable to God for our knowledge to help others. There is always a price that has to be paid for this type of knowledge. I am not saying I have the knowledge but am learning it for a reason and that primary reason is to help those who want the knowledge to live passionate, glorified, real, authentic, serving lives to God’s glory and that alone. It’s to help ease your earthly suffering while we bring heaven to the earth once and for all. With that said, the path is often difficult and only those who know how to persevere in faith are successful. There is always a confrontation that happens when you start to minister. Physical symptoms of a territorial spirit might include fear, upset stomach, and buzzing in the ears that makes you feel dizzy and confused. Your ministry is a threat to their rule over the people of that area. Generations of witchcraft were probably practiced in the area that you experience these things. The witchcraft can have a religious packaging. God provides a way of escape if the people will repent and seek Jesus wholeheartedly. This spirit tries to intimidate you with threats in an attempt to FORCE God’s servants to back off. Don’t back off. Stand in the Word of God and let it proceed out of your mouth in AUTHORITY. The spirits are afraid they are going to lose their power base and their ability to rule over the people. Trust that the Lord will protect YOU and all of those you are associated with. In Mark 5, Jesus met a man who had demons and lived among the tombs. These spirits in him were called “Legion,” for they were many. “The spirits begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.” (5:10) They had a lot of power that particular area, because raised pigs, contrary to the commands of the Lord. They tried to bargain with Jesus to send them into a herd of pigs, so that they might remain in the area. We must not think that Jesus complied with their wishes. He used this incident to show us that demons are real entities, not someone’s overactive imagination or cultural superstition. Only real entities could affect a herd of two thousand pigs enough to drive them into a frenzy down a steep bank on the run into a lake and drown. Ironically, the spirits ended up without a place to dwell and probably had to go where the Lord sent them.
- Another scriptural example of territorial spirits is provided in Daniel 10. the angel messenger told Daniel that the answer he had been bringing in answer to his prayer had been delayed for three weeks because a demonic prince overPersiahad detained him. The messenger said the angel Michael had come to his aid (10:13). The angel also said that he would have to fight against the demonic princes ofPersiaandGreeceon his return and that he would have only Michael to help him (10:20-21
Be careful of healing witchcraft. It is psychic healing with religious packaging. This concearns me personally because I LOVE healing. I am not a “religious” person. I am a Bible believing, toting, Word reading, Bible living, precious woman of God who genuinely wants to see people healed for God’s glory and that alone. I do research healing in all kinds of ways but I believe in prayer for healing and the laying on of hands as described in the Bible. The Bible and time with the Lord is my authority I am submitted under. For an overview of what I truly believe, please visit http://www.champschurch.com. They are my leadership. : ) I love love love love my church family and am so very blessed.
Call in backup, get your prayer partners praying AND ministering with you.
Bind the territorial spirit and all other demonic spirits, Some high ranking spirits actually thrive on the battle and often we are led to switch course and pray against them. There are some territorial spirits that are extremely powerful that require a lot of prayer support to contend with them. We are always dependent on the Lord and HIS authority given TO US to defeat this spirits as the devil is a defeated foe. In Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28, we notice that Lucifer is the power behind both the king ofBabylonand the king ofTyre. Their domains were really his domains. It brings to mind the offer that the devil made to Jesus when he tempted him in the desert (Luke 4). “The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, ‘I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. so if you worship me, it will all be yours.’ “(Luke 4:5-7) Jesus did not challenge that statement, because it was true. Jesus even called him the “prince of this world” in John 12:31. He rules over the kingdoms and countries working through the rulers and governments.
Don’t get slack or weary contending with these spirits. We as Americans are spoiled-we like variety and change. When we act spoiled, slack and do not engage in spiritual warfare, problem after problem begins to develop. People begin to attack each other. Don’t get caught up in putting out “fires.” These are minute details. Focus on the actual ROOT of the problem: The territorial spirits not the people manifesting them. Being slack spoiled and not at war allows these spirits to reorganize and retaliate against us and wreak havoc. They keep you so busy and off balance that we forget about our mission. Persevere in what the Lord wants you to do.
Territorially, Satan is the “prince of this world.” (John 12:31; 14:30, 16:11) has his kingdom organized on many levels with his princes serving him keeping this world in bondage. Look around at all the perverse things that happen. You know in your heart that this is true and not what we were created for. We were created to be in relationship with God, a romance, a great adventure not despair, sickness and death. Not work yourself to death and have NOTHING left. We cannot allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem(s). We have to keep focused on Jesus and be obedient to the calling that he has given to each one of us. TheKingdomofGodneeds to increase its presence not presents in the world and one day, Jesus will usher in the Kingdom in its entirety. The battle is God’s and we are his warriors that await his command.
Much Love and Light in Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
