First 2 Levels Of Spiritual Warfare Against Demonic Spirits
Table of Contents
1. Demons Attacking – With No Legal Right To Be Doing So
For most Christians, this first level will be the one they will probably have to face the most from time to time. This first level is when a demon or a group of demons start to attack you from an outside position with no real legal right to be doing so.
Jesus Himself had to face Satan head on with this kind of an outside attack when God led Him into the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights. In that wilderness setting, Satan was allowed to literally tempt Jesus with three specific temptations.
If God allowed His Son to be tempted in this manner, then you know the chances are very good that many of us will have to face this same kind of demonic attack from time to time from this same kind of outside position.
We already have another article in our site titled, “Battle Command Against Demonic Spirits” in the “Spiritual Warfare” section of our site. In this article, I show you exactly how to deal with a demonic attack coming at you from this kind of an outside position. I also give you a good, basic, simple battle command that you can use to drive any demons off you that are attempting to come directly against you.
Jesus has already given us His power, His anointing, and His authority to cast out demons and to trample over all the power of our enemies.
It simply is a matter of each and every Christian being willing to take up his sword, which is the Word of God, and verbally command the demons to leave you in the name of Jesus Christ. It really is that simple in this first level of spiritual warfare in dealing direct with any kind of demonic attack.
2. Demons Attacking – As a Result of a Legal Right To Be Able To Do So
In this second level, things start to get much heavier. This second level is when demons start to come in for an attack, but this time they have a full legal right to be able to do so.
This is the realm that gets many Christians in trouble with demons. What happens in this second level is that the Christian has given some kind of legal right for the demons to be able to launch a full scale attack against them.
The Bible tells us from the Book of Job that we apparently have some kind of protective hedge around us that protects us from demonic spirits. If we did not have this kind of protective hedge, then you can bet that many more Christians would be coming under direct demonic attack. Here is the verse:
“Have You not made a HEDGE around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side?” (Job 1:10)
As a result of this protective hedge, there appears to be some kind of spiritual law in operation that demons have to abide by. They may occasionally be able to come against you as described in level one, but they can easily be cast off from you by just issuing a good, basic, battle command – telling them they now have to leave you in the name of Jesus Christ once you realize that it really is them that have been attacking you.
However, what demons do is just wait for any Christian to cause a hole to occur in their protective hedge. And how do you cause a hole to occur in your protective hedge giving demons a legal right to be able to come directly after you? By engaging and crossing over into any direct sins and transgressions that are expressly forbidden by God the Father in His Word.
Obviously not every sin and transgression will cause a hole to occur in your protective hedge with the Lord. The Bible tells us that we are all sinners and that we have all fallen short of the glory of our God. This is why Jesus had to come down to die on the cross – to pay the penalty for all of those sins, and to be able to give us full forgiveness and a full pardon for all of our sins.
If demons had a legal right to be coming after us every single time we sinned or transgressed, then none of us would ever be safe from their attacks, and we would all be in a state of constant warfare with them.
However, what many deliverance ministers have found out in the actual battlefields when having to deal direct with real live demons – is that there are certain sins and transgressions that will give demons the legal right to be able to launch a full scale attack against a person, even if that person is already a Christian!
Once you become saved and born again through the Blood that Jesus has already shed for you on the cross, this does not give you the right or the license to be able to keep on sinning.
Though we have all been made perfectly righteous in the eyes of God as a result of Jesus’ righteousness now being imputed to us, we still have to make every effort on our end to stay on the righteous side of the fence in our walk with our Lord.
We have to do the best we can to try and live righteous lives and stay out of any serious sins and transgressions against our Lord – especially those of the heavier kind that will be listed below.
In this area of spiritual warfare, there are certain types of sins and transgressions that will give demons the legal right to be able to come directly after you if God should so choose to allow this to happen. If you choose to engage in some of these heavier sins, then you could possibly break the protective hedge that you have around you with the Lord.
The demons will then be quick to see that opening when it does occur, and they will waste no time in trying to come directly after you.
Demons just wait for people, especially Christians, to cross over into any kind of door-opening, hedge-breaking sin and transgression, which will then give them the full legal right to be able to launch an all-out, full scale attack on that person and their life.
When looking at what some of these kinds of sins and transgressions are, the first thing you will notice is that they are a much heavier type of sin and transgression.
Here are some of the heavier sins and transgressions, if committed with any type of frequency or intensity, that can get you into major trouble with the Lord where He will then pull back His hand of protection and cause a major hole to occur in your hedge – which will then give demons the full legal right to be able to start coming directly after you for a major attack.
As Christians, we can have absolutely no part in any of the following areas:
- The occult
- False religions or cults
- Any part of the New Age Movement
- Any type of Satan worshiping group
- Any involvement with abortion or the abortion industry
- Abusing alcohol
- Doing any type of drugs – including pot
- Any type of extreme verbal and/or physical abuse on your mate or children
- Any type of promiscuous, sexual lifestyle
- Any type of criminal activity
- Bringing a cursed object into your home
If you will notice, all of these sins and transgressions are things that you have to do operating out of your own free will and volition against the Lord. These are not things that are being done to you or against you – these are all sins that you are doing and committing against the Lord all on your own volition. In other words, these are all direct willful sins being done against the Lord.
Each one of these areas are major, I repeat, major door openers to the dark side. All of these sins and behaviors are totally unacceptable in the eyes of God and He will not put up with any of His own engaging in any of this kind of activity!
In the areas having to do with the occult, we have another article in our site titled, “Dangers of the Occult.”
In this article, I give you all of the main verses from the Bible that will tell us that none of us can engage with anything having to do with the occult, and that if we do, we will risk having God set His face directly against us.
Deliverance ministers who deal with demons on a regular basis have all found out that some of the more evil and wicked demons in Satan’s hierarchy are demons that have attached to someone as a result of that person delving into some area of the occult. This is why God has given all of us such strict warnings in His Word that we can have absolutely nothing to do with any area of the occult – no exceptions!
If you have drawn demons into your life as a result of engaging in one or more of the above door-opening sins, then what you will have to do before you can cast the demons out of your life is that you will have to fully break all of their legal rights.
You will first have to realize that you have been sinning and transgressing directly against God by delving into any of the above areas.
Once you have full realization and understanding that these are all unacceptable sins and behaviors before God, then you will have to go before God, fully confess out each one of the transgressions as actual sins, and then fully renounce each one of them – telling God that you will never, ever go back into any of them ever again.
Then once each of these sin areas have been fully confessed and fully renounced before the Lord – then you can turn around, take the authority that God has given to you to trample over all the power of your enemy, and cast the demons off you for good.
What happens to some Christians, once they realize they have drawn demons into their lives as a result of being involved in some of the above sin areas – is that they will first try and cast the demons out before breaking their legal rights with God the Father. If you try and do this before you properly break their legal rights before God the Father, they will not go!
The reason for this is that they know they still have the full legal right to stay attached to you since their legal rights have not been properly confessed out, renounced, and broken before God the Father.
In the “Spiritual Warfare” section of our site, we have another article titled, “Battle Prayer to Break Legal Rights of Demons.” In this article, I give you a good, basic, battle prayer on how to go before God the Father and fully break all of the demon’s legal rights by properly confessing and renouncing these types of heavier sins.
In this article is a battle prayer that I had given to another woman who had drawn heavy demonic activity into her life as a result of engaging in some very heavy sins. This woman has given me permission to release the exact prayer that I had given to her so as to be able to help other people who may be having the same kind of problems with demons.
To any of you who may have drawn heavy demonic activity in your life as a result of engaging in some of these heavier sins – remember – the only sin that cannot be forgiven is a direct blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. All other sins and transgressions can be forgiven, no matter how bad, how vile, and how severe you think they may be.
If you are truly sorry for having engaged in this kind of activity, fully willing to confess and renounce all of this activity before God the Father – then God can fully forgive you and fully deliver you from these demons and restore order back into your life. This is not a hopeless situation.
The Bible tells us that God the Father is no respecter of persons – which means what He will do for one, He will do for another.
God has an equal and unconditional love for each person He has created, and He will thus work equally with each person who is willing to come to Him for their deliverance.
We have come across plenty of people who have drawn heavy demonic activity into their lives, and all of them were able to get fully delivered from the demons once they were taught how to fully break their legal rights.
For those of you who may be battling this kind of spiritual problem, I would highly recommend that you read my article titled “Battle Prayer to Break Legal Rights of Demons,” and then form out your own personal battle prayer to God the Father to handle your personal situation.
Once you have fully broken all of the legal rights that the demons have been feeding and operating on, then you will be able to turn around and verbally command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ. In this article, I give you both the prayer to go to God the Father with to break their legal rights, along with a good, basic, battle command to drive the demons off you for good!
This will now lead us into the third level of spiritual warfare when having to deal with the reality of demonic spirits invading our lives.
