Familiar Spirits Who Come To Stay

Familiar Spirits

We may need to battle numerous spirits in our lives as survivors of abuse and neglect. While we should not become carried away with the idea of demons wrecking havoc in our lives, it is wise to be aware that they exist, and that as survivors, we may need to do battle with some of them. The following list may help you recognize some of the more common spirits that seem to take advantage of victimization:

  1. Fear and mistrust
  2. Anger and malice
  3. Murder and destruction
  4. Death, morbidity, and suicide
  5. Division or strife
  6. Infirmity or sickness
  7. Control, aggression or passivity
  8. Lust or pornography
  9. Greed or power
  10. Idolatry or rebellion
  11. Perversion or macabre
  12. Religiosity or false worship
  13. Blame or criticism
  14. Entrapment or seduction
  15. Silence or mutism
  16. Jealousy or entitlement
  17. Mockery or sarcasm
  18. Confusion or double-mindedness
  19. Pride or perfectionism
  20. Self-control or self-denial
  21. Unforgiveness or bitterness
  22. Grief, sorrow, or depression

Here's a pratical excercise:

  • Ask God to show you whether any of these spirits or others are at work in your life. In what ways are the lies you believed as a result of your childhood (or present) abuse an informal invitation?
  • Use this three step process to battle whatever spirits God shows you are at work in your life.

a. Define the lie's content and identify the spirit responsible for maintaining the lie.

b. Seperate yourself from the spirits's influence by repenting of your complicity and binding its power in Jesus' name.

c. Refute the lie with statements of truth from scriptures (Ephesians 4:25).

  • Resolve to make the following prayer a part of your daily prayer routine:

Satan, I command you to leave my presence, along with all of your demons, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I claim the power of the blood of Jesus which he shed for me. I bring that blood between me and all of the forces of darkness. Amen.

Ancient Sex Abuse Facts:

The greatest offense against nature (God's divine order) was committed when the wrong purpose (selfish sex for mere pleasure outside of marriage), was sought with the wrong partner(same sex), in the wrong way (by means of oral or anal intercourse)


The taboo for childhood sex play
is only a few hundred years old. In
ancient and medieval Europe alike,

well recognized. Mothers,
grandmothers

sleep or keep them quiet.
