Demon Activities

1. They tempt people to sin, by putting various kinds of
imaginations in the minds of men and women and speaking words of deceit (Genesis 3:1-6). Satan even tempted Jesus, and Jesus revealed to us the way to overcome temptation by using the Word of God (see Matthew 4:1-10).

2. They deceive (2 Corinthians 11:14). They especially lie about God, blaming all the evil on God. Many religious leaders are deceived by Satan. As long as we remain deceived on some important point, Satan’s demons have something they can work with. They can return to it, like rats return to rubbish.

3. They hurt and torment through sickness (Acts 10:38), death, breakdown of human relationships leading to strife, war and violence.

4. They threaten (producing fear) (2 Timothy 1.7). They suggest all kinds of negative scenarios in order to create anxiety and fear. Many fears of people today are unreasonable and are the direct result of demonic suggestion.

5. They dominate, or enslave (2 Timoythy 2:26). Satan seeks to recruit slaves through the power of witchcraft and other forms of false religion. He gives power or money or sexual pleasures in exchange for various forms of worship and obedience. But Satan always double-crosses his servants, so they too become victims of his hate. Jesus said, “What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his soul?” (Mark 8:36)

6. They accuse God’s people so that they have reduced effectiveness in their prayers and their relationship with God.

7. They harrass – through repeated attacks on mind, emotions, body, finances or through inspiring persecutors to make life hard for Christians.

8. They glorify themselves through witchcraft, false religion and other tools like the occult and much of today’s popular rock-and-roll, rap and metal music.

Fear, hate and pride are the major motivations in Satan’s kingdom. When you see these characteristics in a person, you are looking at someone who has yielded to evil spirits, whether they know it or not.

Jesus said that the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. If you make friends with spirits committed to your destruction, you are a fool. (John 10:10). God loves us, and doesn’t want us to have fellowship with demons (see 1 Corinthians 10:20). For that reason, we must worship God and not give that place in our hearts to the various idols in our culture.

We are called to war against Satan and evil spirits (Ephesians 6:12). Only in Christ’s power and authority can we drive them out of their positions of influence. If we are in right relationship with God we have nothing to fear. If not we should cry out to God for deliverance.

Satan’s works include sickness, inspiring false religion, strife and wars, creating poverty and oppression, leading people to torment and eternal hell. He tries to rob Christians of their inheritance in Christ.

But praise God! We can overcome demons through faith in the name and blood of Jesus, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God. Life is better for overcomers.

    • Isaiah 41 bring forth your Idols did they PREACH to you see they can’t speak they can’t DO ANYTHING all they do is cause confusion. Spalms 115 and Spalms 135 their Idols are FALSE they can’t speak, hear, nor smell and those that make them shall become like them. Jeremiah 10 they nail their Idol down like a scarecrow it can’t move, speak they must be carried these are nothing but the WORK of CON men.
      John 10 Jesus Christ says his sheep HEAR HIS VOICE and if another person TRIES TO PREACH to them they WILL FLEE from him. Jeremiah 5 the priests bear rule on their OWN AUTHORITY what will you do when your judged my word is not INSIDE them. Now here is the kicker john 5 son of man voice goes BACK in TIME.
      Mathew 16 Jesus Christ claims to be the son of man. 1 cor 2 mind of CHRIST preached internally and john 14 says the spirit of truth comes in the future. Ezekiel 13 states lying prophets of ISRAEL say GOD says GOD says but my word is not inside them. They wrote hoping mankind would CONFIRM their WORDS. All of this is EASILY verifiable.
      Mathew 10 says you should hear an internal voice that defends you and tells you what to say when taken to court preached to by the holy ghost. Mathew 12 Jesus states he is preaching by the holy ghost. John 14 states holy ghost comes in future and is from someone else. Now refer back to John 10 about hearing from someone else and fleeing. John 5 states son of mans voice goes back in time. Mathew 16 Jesus claims to be the son of man.
      1 cor 2 holy ghost is familiar with the story about a man on cross from READING about it. Isaiah 65 written in front of me is listed here and also what is not written is hidden from my eyes therefore not familiar with it found in the same chapter. john 7 Jesus says if you knew scripture you’d know if its his word or GODS words. john 12 Jesus admits the voice heard is NOT his. John 10 people point out that Jesus tries to make himself appear to be GOD.

        so do I,and it seems you are a good place to start,why are you hear,if you don’t like what you read,are you lost or confused,or reading the wrong book,either way fix it

      • You make him sount as a Liar and whatever book you are reading, things are taken out of context. Also Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity of God and all are one. Jesus is The Word of God in the flesh. When you read genesis You read : in the beginning God(father-soul) created the heaven & the earth 2 And the Earth was without form , and void: and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God(holy spirit) moved upon the Face of the waters. 3 And God said(Jesus Word and body), let there be light: and there was light. When you read John1:1-4 you see he speaks of of Jesus as the word and in verse 3 he tells you that all things were made by him; and without him not any thing was made that was made. Then in verse 4 he is called the life and the light. You see Jeff this is the jesus we speak of. The one who is gods words & by whom the earth was made and thru him every Good thing was made. He has many names oNe is emanuelle (God with us), rose of sharon, Balm of gilead, he is the author & finisher of our faith & He created the Sun the moon & the stars so he is big Jeff A Big Big God who gave his very best for you, for me for everyone. This is the god I serve & know. I wish you would ask him to reveal himself to you then you would know life & freedom & Truth from lie. I will pray for you. But I can only ask you to ask him into your heart and then you would understand what we say & how we speak. Love annette, a servent of Christ Jesus of Nazereth

        WoW Jeff

        You sure started off with a bang, haven’t you ever read the book by Andrew Carnegie, “How to win friends and influence people”?

        Were glad to have you here, there must be something God wants you to hear.

        But first, there are a few things you need to understand.

        Rom 10:17
        So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

        The word being the actual words in the Bible, plus Jesus Christ the Savior of the world, it is only by His sacrifice you can attain this Faith, it is also only by Him, that you can hear the words of God spoken to your heart, He opens your ears to be able to hear the truth.

        Heb 11:6
        But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

        Once you have acquired the faith, you can then seek God, but you have to believe He exists first.
        If you want to know the truth, you have to know the author and finisher of your faith, Jesus Christ.

        1Co 2:14
        But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

        As a natural man, you will never in your entire life understand the things written in the Bible, they are foolishness to you because your ears, and you eyes, and your Heart have not been opened to the truth.
        Only God can do that for you.

        Joh 6:44
        No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

        The one saying “ME”, is Jesus, you cannot come to the knowledge of Jesus unless you have been drawn and shown the truth.
        But Praise be to the Father, your here tonight, and we pray you will continue to return until, Christ be formed in you.

        Gal 4:19
        My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

        I lift you up to God, that He in His infinite mercy, will grant unto you Salvation, for your immortal soul.

        Pro 24:9
        The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.

        Just calm down, don’t be so combative, we will be more than happy to answer any and all legitimate questions you may have.

        1Co 1:25
        Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

        Be Blessed
        JIM
