I want to talk about what I would describe as outward manifestations. As I walk around in my community, or observe friends and family online, there is a lacking of discernment on this topic – which I would call outward manifestations – and I will do my best to describe it in this post.
Halloween was last month. Have you ever truly asked yourself why some people choose the costumes they do? You can pick almost any costume in the world in most cases. Yet some people literally choose to dress up as devils with horns on their heads. Or vampires or witches or werewolves or anything else in between. Sharpen your discernment. What has influenced these people to dress up like devils and witches etc? It is an outward manifestation of what is within. Like a mirror reflecting the spirit within. That is what some of these horrific costumes are. These costumes are an accurate portrayal of what is inside a man / woman.
The same for the music we choose to listen to. When you are choosing to listen to excessive violent and vulgar lyrics, that is telling of what is within. When you are choosing to watch horror movies filled with blood and gore, that is telling of what is inside of you. What about video games people choose to play? Some people’s cup of tea is Grand Theft Auto, The Witcher, World of Warcraft, Diablo, and Call of Duty. What does that choice actually say about a person? Personal preference, or something a bit more sinister to those with the discernment to recognize?
Here is yet another example. When you participate in violent riots against your neighbors whom are innocent, that is indicative of what is living under your skin. You whom are so concerned about the color of skin, what color is the spirit fueling your heinous actions against your innocent neighbors underneath your skin as you burn down their livelihoods? These are yet more examples of outward manifestations.
It is the same for anyone endorsing election fraud, it is the same for the mainstream media willing the American people to believe lies, it is the same for social media / search engines banning those whom tell the truth when big tech doesn’t like the truth. This concept lead me to scripture that I needed to see. Now you can see it too …
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.John 14:17 KJV
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.John 15:26 KJV
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.John 16:13 KJV
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.John 8:44 KJV
Notice that another alias for the Holy Ghost is “Spirit of Truth”. That’s a direct quote from Christ himself according to scripture. And what of the Spirit of Lies? People who lie belong to their Father of Lies. That is their allegiance. Again, direct quoting Jesus here.
Did you know that Jesus cast out demons on 10+ occasions in the New Testament? Tell me, when so many want a vaccine for a virus with a +99% survival rate in today’s world, which scientist invented the vaccine for demon possession? Point me to the exact day in history that wicked spirits living in people was “cured”? You will never find any scientist having cured this. They never have – of course. The point is this is is still a huge problem today and so very few realize it. This is a much larger of a problem than COVID-19 in my opinion. The Lord of Lords decides if and when a virus takes me out. That’s called Faith.
Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?Luke 18:8 KJV
Back to the topic of wicked spirits. Some say that a Christian can’t have a demon in them. It doesn’t work that way from my experience. I find instead the following to be the case. Many wicked spirits were in you, and once you recognized they are indeed inside, whether Christian or not, some will come out as you get victory over sins. The further refined towards righteousness you gravitate, the more wickedness comes out, because you are starving the sin to death. Recognize, Resist, and Repent is an excellent formula to live by. Self deliverance using these techniques can be achieved on many fronts.
Yet perhaps in some cases you cannot achieve self deliverance, then one more powerful than you at overcoming the iniquity should be able to drive that thing out of you. It is written …
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.Matthew 7:3-5 KJV
That is an advantage of a true Deliverance Ministry – but these are rare and hard to find. I suggest the teachings of Chris Lasala on such things.
I wanted to share a short testimony that happened to me just recently. I have written before that I beat the sugar demon – and I did. But sometimes I let my guard down. Far from me to declare myself as a perfect finished product. Far from it.
A few weeks ago, my nephews and nieces got a ton of candy trick or treating. I am no fan of Halloween the pagan holiday. Unfortunately I do have human weakness for Twix Bars and Reeses Cups on occasions. So I ate some of their Halloween candy. After that regretful indulgence, for the next week or so, every day it was like something in my mind trying to get me to eat donuts and soda pop and candy etc. I then realized that Halloween candy probably came with more than I bargained for. There was probably a wicked spirit attached to the consuming of that candy. I told my girlfriend about this. She is learning about being a Christian, and her reaction was “it is parasites”. Now there is probably wisdom in what she said, that not only can there be a wicked spirit but also a physical issue such as worms, or a virus, or a cancer etc. But in my specific case, I told her “I will resist all sugar and I’ll literally cough this thing out in a few days”. This statement was a bit too shocking for her. She should trust me on such things. As sure as the sun is in the sky today, I denied sugar for a few days, and then I was laying on my couch and had a strong coughing spell out of nowhere. After that scenario played out, the “sugar withdrawal headache” was suddenly gone and I was back on track. Self deliverance. I literally coughed out an annoying sugar demon.
Recognize, Resist, Repent. Try that powerful combination for yourself and see if you don’t get results.
