There are times when I wonder about so many things. There are several happenings in the world in which we live that provoke deep thoughts and intense reasoning with an aim of undertanding them.
These times, we wake up to meet weird and absurd stories that not humane in nature. Children being slaughtered by parents, sons slaughtering parents, parents raping their children, brothers killing their brothers, human beings kill their kind, etc. All these happenings are not normal, at least even the strongest atheist believes they’re not normal happenings.
A man’s actions are determined by the soul he carries. That very soul is just like a steering, though it’s the control, it’s actually not in control. A man’s spirit controls his soul. That Spirit, which is the man himself, is also controlled by ruling spirits.
Into the spirits ruling over a man’s spirit; a born again believer has the Holy Spirit as the ruling spirit whilst an unbeliever has cosmic powers ruling over them in spirit. For this reason, an unbeliever will respond to whatever a cosmic authority instructs to be done, hence the coining of the phrase, “if you go to Rome, you do what the Romans do”.
In Ephesians 6:12 we learn something that most of the things we fight against are not of the natural. Police fights Crime, crime is seen in the natural but what causes the crime is something very serious from the spiritual realm.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6:12 KJV
This scripture tells us how organised the devil is when it comes to his mode of operation. He doesn’t Just enter the world and do things, there are forerunners who don’t break ranks. Every demon knows when it’s their turn to enter and do their job specification.
Before any man will do something that men consider as wicked, the person has gone through different stages of possession. When Jesus met the mad man of Gadara, the spirit responded, “we are many”. The reason that man could cut himself is because he has been through different levels of infestation.
Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
Luke 11:26 KJV
Before a man will kill himself, kill a loved one, kill a random person, rape someone, hold malice, blaspheme and all the likes, that individual has been through stages of demonic possession.
Jesus said in the above verse, if a demon comes into a man, he goes to bring seven other wicked demons to make the man worse than he(the first demon) could make him.
So an example, there is a loose demon that enters a man like a desire, he begins to love pornographic material, another one is brought in by the first just to make the individual masturbate, that one also goes to bring in another that will move the individual into sexual immorality and it goes on and on making the individual worse until he or she loses his or her salvation(that’s if he or she has been saved) by confessing against Christ.
There are underground demons. A lying spirit is a underground demon. These demons are those that barely look like they are demons, they are the way pavers. They have to enter a man before other major spirits can have a way to enter. Moodiness is an underground demon. Isolation is another. Lust is also one of them.
These demons have underground works. So subtle to be noticed. A lying spirit can tell a lady she’s not beautiful. Whenever she looks into the mirror, she doesn’t see her beauty because her conscience has been seered. If she encounters a brokenheart situation, she might quickly think of suicide because she thinks she is not good enough.
There are many works of the devil that can be stopped if we begin to identify these underground demons and fish them out before they invite squatters. When the house tenant(the underground demon) is cast out, the squatters(invited, more wicked demons) will have no choice but to leave.
