Dealing with demonic influence…NOT possession

On Nov. 9th, 2010 I discovered I had demons in my apartment. They seduced me into thinking they were friendly and good…and then by the grace of God I discovered the truth. I have a recording studio…and one day I heard voices other than my own on the tracks I had recorded. Unfortunately, I welcomed these evil spirits and for lack of a better word, I “entertained” them. I would listen to the recordings afterward…and that is when I heard strange sounds and voices…including one that said “…don’t mess with the devil…” When I heard this my entire body shivered…and I immediately destroyed all the recordings I had made and re-dedicated my life to the Lord…as well as pleaded the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. When they found out that I would no longer “play” with them they got very angry. That night a demon roared at me as I slept and awoke me with a shove…then it knocked over things and made a loud clatter. I was terrified and slept with the covers over my head trembling with fear. I had NEVER had to deal with this type of situation before! Then I discovered the next evening that demons can follow you wherever you go. I am a musician…and these things would hold my guitar, vibrate my chair, poke my hand…they would do whatever they could to distract me. At one performance I saw a black mist behind me as I turned around to see what was going on. I called people that I knew were believers and ministers and prayer warriors to help me. They interceded for me. I blessed and anointed with oil my whole apartment. Then I started praying daily, reading the Word, praising the Lord, rebuked them, recited special prayers out loud to rout them…everything I could do to fight these vile, invisible things. They would mostly attack at night when I tried to sleep…poking me, burning my feet (even though I had slippers and socks on!), vibrating my bed, playing with my hair, whispering in my ears, making my muscles twitch, scratching my legs with their sharp nails, tugging on my covers, making my hands and feet move, etc.

This has been going on for almost two months now. It has strengthened my faith and made my Heavenly Father and Jesus as well as the Holy Spirit very real to me. This situation has conquered my fear of death. If these things exist then I KNOW that God exists! He has been so faithful in answering my prayers. I am so grateful. The Word of God has become so much more clearer to me. His Promises more vital and important…I have discovered and learned of many ways to battle these enemies…but the battle is actually the Lord’s. I know that a person reaps what they sow…and that the Lord chastises those He loves. The activity is not as intense now as when it first started…but once I start feeling like I have been delivered they pop up and make their presence known again. Sometimes it makes me very unhappy and frustrated. That is when i ask my friends for prayers to give me strength and endurance.

If anyone here has had these experiences I would very much like to hear from you. What did you have to deal with? How did you make it from day to day? I sometimes see every one around me being so free and enjoying life and unaware and I get envious that I have to deal with this trial. I miss my “normal” life. How long was it before you were delivered? Are there any special prayers you said to deliver yourself?

Your prayers of intercession and faith for deliverance for me would be very much appreciated…

In Him, Stephen

What do YOU think?

    I will pray for you MR dzstephens.
    oh and make sure you’ve gotten rid of any occult items such as books.
    And when/ if they say there gonna do something (doubt they will since i alredy prayed) but u neva know just say/think if it be Gods will. Which it isn’t btw.
    and repeatedly saying in Jesus name i command u to leave till they leave or you fall asleep always works. because Jesus said seek and u will find ask and you shall receive knock and the door will be open so your happiness may be complete and whatever Jesus said came from God and God never lies. ever.
    And be patient its not gonna last forever, you’d rather listen to me than him/them(devil/s) any day. resist the devil and he will run from you. 🙂 < smiley face

  2. Hi
    DZStephens, i am going through something very similar, i have been going through this for about 2 years and my testimony is posted on this site called ‘ HELP’ in the Christian Testimonies section. Many people have sent me messages and i have received lots of help. I suggest that you but two books, one is called pigs in the parlour by Frank D. Hammond and the other is called 4 KEYS TO HEARING GODS VOICE by MARK AND PATTI VIRKLE, also if you can get a copy of the Bible on audio, as it awesome to listen to Gods word as well as just read it, i also play this while i sleep, i like to torture the little blighters back.
    In Christ, Shaun and always learning.

      I’ll do the things you suggest and keep you posted…if you would lift me up in prayer I would really appreciate it. May Almighty God bless you always…

  3. Timothy Luke says:

    You have authority over these critters. Wonder what would happen if you commanded them to praise the Lord while in your house, or leave? Keeping the praise on is great, because they live to promote the devil. The Word says, "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." Psalm 150. Enforce the Word in your home, as you are God's beachhead and authorized representative in your home.

    TimT, are you aware of anyone trying this?

    • Joshuagm1991 says:

      That is actually funny! I love it.
      Definitely going to try that.

      Much love Tim.

      • Timothy Luke says:

        Joshua, in all things dealing with the devil, it is a kingdom to be handled with respect, yet authoritatively. It can be easy for a spirit of pride to come in and undermine our authority – such as the sons of Sceva…

        Act 19:11-7  "And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:  So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

        "Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

        "And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.  And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?  And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

        "And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified."

        Just thought I should convey that, as my first post could leave one open on this…

  4. Joshuagm1991 says:

    I’m right there with you, especially recently. I think it’s fruitless to go into much detail.

    My issues have been nightmares as well as struggling to not entertain thoughts of wrath.

    Study the word everyday, and put on the armor of God every morning. Resist every temptation with prayer and rebuke it out loud in the name of Jesus.

    Definitely learn from Timt, he knows what’s up. haha

    Good luck and much love,

      I’m so glad I have gotten replies to this situation. Pray for me as I will be praying for you…May the Lord keep us all close to Him, sheltering us in the shadow of His wings in the New Year to come…

  5. Just plead the blood of Christ over your place and I have discoverd through the years that if I put on christian music and just leave it on miricles happen because Gods name is being exalted.See when ever my wife and I would move in to a new place we dedicated it to Christ Jesus and than we would just put on Christian music low and just let it play all the time.When my oldest was young she had allot of attacks from demonic spirits so we put on bible cds at night which would play all night long.Well with in about a week the annointing was so strong in her room that when you went in there you felt like praising God.I had a good friend battle spirits of lust in his apartment he rented so he got some spirtual warfare music and put it on and left it on quitly for 3 days.That apartment was so filled with the precense of God  you didnt want to leave and when people would come over they felt the need to just repent of any sin they have done.See if you go to my web sight I offer prayer clothes to any one that wants me to mail one.See when you start lifting up the name Jesus Christ it makes demons run so just sit in the middle of eash room and praise Jesus Christ and you will see results.Several people I know who have been attacked in their sleep put one of my prayer clothes under the sheets between the bed and shhets and they said wow I slept all night long,see the war isintense and we need to fight for our God given rights.I haveseen to many christianssurrender ground to the enemy because they dont want to offend any one but if you look at Revelation 21:8 you will see cowards will have their part in the lake of fire.When I know God has called me to take back what the eneemy has stolen I am not concerned about who I will offend.So with this in mind start preaching to these demonic spirits,thats right get out your bible and start preaching.Pne time a church was under sever attack and I told the pastor preach to the empty pews and the walls and proclaim the power of God,and with in a short time the power of God fell and it was mighty.So see you have allot of weapons now pick one and start batteling and I will have my intercessors be praying for you……Tim

    • dzstephens says:

      of Bible CDs! That’s a WONDERFUL idea! Thank you Jesus for Tim’s response…I will use some of the weapons you have suggested. What is “spiritual warfare music”? Where can you find it??

      • Jason Upton,Jesus culture,Jaunita Bynum behind the veil cd,Misty Edwards,Kim Clement these are all prohetic music bands that arent in to saleing cds these people seek the heart of God and most of all theirmusic the radio will not play because the song is to long.I have allot of these artist music and to get in to warfare I put one of these cds on because the enemy hates Christ being worshipped.Oh and by the way I have done every thing I have suggested to you to do and I just love watching the annointing of God become so thick and tangible that its like God is present with me.Also the binding and loosening prayer that is on my web sight is a great prayer also thats why I put it in my book called suicide spirit.If you want to go and print it out and just start speaking that prayer all over your place and dont make the mistake some people have,they clean house but they forget that demons dont care if itsa bathroom they will stay there as long as nobody doeswarfare in there so just remember your not alone the power of God is upon you and I have all my intercessors praying for you also…..Be blessed Tim

    • dzstephens says:

Thank you once again! Thank you Jesus for these references and suggestions from these true believers…may your faith grow stronger and bolder with each day that passes…as well as mine…
