3. Demons Attacking – As a Result of What Someone Else May Have Done to You

This particular area has always been one of the most bothersome areas that I have ever come across when investigating and researching this part of our walk with the Lord. It’s one thing to draw demons in on you as a result of your own sins and transgressions that you have committed against the Lord.

Most of the time in that area, you have nobody to blame but yourself for choosing to cross over into areas that you knew were forbidden territory by the Lord in the first place.

But this now brings us into the third major level when having to deal with direct attacks from demons. What happens in this area is that sometimes demons will be allowed to come in and attach themselves to a person as a result of what someone else may have done to that person.

Some examples of this would be women who have been raped, people who have been ritually abused in Satanic groups, people who have been victims of certain types of crimes and assault, women who may have been severely physically abused by their husbands or boyfriends, and children who have been severely abused by one or both parents – either physically or verbally.

When I first came across this phenomenon, I wondered why God could allow demons to attach themselves to people who have been horribly abused or wronged by another person. This person was usually completely innocent of sinning or transgressing against God.

So why would God allow demons to launch a full scale attack against the victim, especially if that victim is a born-again Christian? Christian woman are being molested, and physically beaten every day across this country.

What happens in some of these types of extreme cases is that demons, once they see that person being physically violated to this kind of an extreme degree, will realize that there might be a hole in that person’s hedge.

ADVERTISEMENTS

Once they see this kind of an opening, they will then try and move in to see if they can attach themselves to that person.

What demons are looking for in these kinds of extreme cases is what that person’s response is going to be to the violation.

If a woman has been raped, the demons will see if that person will start to exhibit and manifest emotions of hate, anger, bitterness, and unforgiveness.

God will obviously allow the person to have some of these kinds of emotions right after all of this has occurred as a result of the initial knee-jerk reaction most of us would have to this kind of severe trauma. I do not believe the demons can get a foothold into that person right off the bat.

But if that person does not start to work themselves out of these kinds of negative emotions over a certain period of reasonable time, then the demons will have something they can attach themselves too, and that something are the negative emotions of hate, bitterness, and extreme anger that will settle in that person’s mind, spirit, and emotions over a certain period of time.

And once the demons attach themselves to those kinds of negative emotions, they will then start to try and work it – trying to increase the frequency and intensity of those emotions.

If a person has drawn heavy demonic activity into their lives as a result of being the victim of some kind of extreme behavior from another person, then what that person will have to do before they can cast the demons out of them is to fully forgive the person who has viciously wronged them – no matter how evil and vicious that wrong may have been.

We have another article in our site titled, “How to Handle Negative Feelings When Wronged by Someone Else.”

This article is in the Psychological Issues section of our site. In this article, I give you all of the appropriate Scripture verses on being able to deal with this kind of heavier problem.

The Bible tells us that whenever we get ready to stand before the Lord to pray to Him, that we have to be willing to fully forgive anyone else who has ever trespassed against us – and that will include any vicious criminal who may have raped, assaulted or robbed you, or any violent and psychotic boyfriend or husband who may have physically abused you.

The Bible tells us that if we do not forgive others who may have trespassed against us, then God will not be forgiving us when we trespass against others.

And then to top it off, God may not even be willing to hear any of our personal prayers with the way He has this particular verse worded. And if He won’t hear any of our personal prayers, then we may have little or no chance on getting delivered from any type of demonic attack that may have come our way.

The first thing any good deliverance minister will do on these types of heavier cases is to make sure the person will be willing to fully forgive all of the people who have seriously wronged them in this life. Until this person is willing to fully forgive all of their trespassers, the demons cannot be cast out.

The demons have been feeding off those negative emotions for quite some time and as a result, a mental stronghold has developed in that person’s mind and thinking. To start God’s inner healing process, this person has to be willing to fully forgive the person or people who may have hurt them in these more extreme types of cases.

Once the person is willing to fully forgive all of their trespassers in the eyes of God, then that person can turn around and verbally engage with the demons, telling them that they now have to leave them in the name of Jesus Christ.

4. Demons Attacking – As a Result of a Generational Curse Line

Another very disturbing area in the realm of having to do battle with demonic spirits is the area where demons can sometimes jump from abusive and dysfunctional parents onto some of the children – trying to get some of the children to manifest the same aberrant and dysfunctional behavior of their parents.

A perfect example of this would be a severe alcoholic parent. The children grow up seeing and watching their parent live a good portion of their married life in this state. As a result of that parent crossing over into this kind of heavier sin area with the Lord, demons will be allowed to come in and attach themselves to the alcoholic parent.

And once they attach themselves to the alcoholic parent, they will then look to see if they can target anyone else in the family to attack.

Again, the children are completely innocent. They themselves are not an alcoholic. They have done nothing themselves to draw the demons onto their alcoholic parent. So why would God allow the demons to be able to jump onto some of the children to try and get them to do the same thing they have been able to get their dysfunctional parent to do?

In some of these types of extreme cases, one or two of the children could end up becoming alcoholics themselves.

What is happening behind the scenes in the spiritual realm is that the demons will try and get some of the children to move into this same kind of extreme activity, especially as they get older and move into their own marriages.

Demons cannot make you do anything. You will always have your free will to choose whether or not you will act out on their evil suggestions and promptings. All demons can do is try and persuade you to cross over into these kinds of extreme realms.

Many children who end up crossing over into some of these same extreme areas are really operating under heavy demonic influence. This is a perfect example of God telling us in His Word that His people will go into captivity for having lack of knowledge.

Many children are crossing over into the same extreme realms that their parents were walking in as a result of not having the appropriate knowledge to fully understand what is really going on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm.

Once again, God the Father gives us some keen insight from His Word as to why this kind of activity is being allowed to happen in some families. God tells us in His Word that the sins of the fathers can be visited down to 3 or 4 generations of future children.

Here is the verse where God is making this specific statement. This verse is from one of the actual 10 commandments, the second commandment.

“You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” (Exodus 20:4-6)

Notice in this verse that God is using the word “visiting” – visiting the sins and iniquities of the father directly onto the children, traveling as far down as 3 or 4 generations of these future children.

What does God mean by the word “visiting?” I believe what God may be trying to tell us is that there will be severe consequences for certain types of sins and iniquities committed by parents of children. The Bible tells us that the “wages” of sin will be death.

If the father of a family is an extreme alcoholic, then the family could end up living in a miserable, oppressive and terrible environment. As a result of this kind of severe transgression against the Lord, the family could end up living in poverty.

As a result of living in poverty, the children may end up not getting the best education or the better opportunities to progress and grow into what God may have been calling them to become in Him in the first place. As a result of being raised up in this kind of a poor and oppressive environment, some of these children will never find God and what His purpose and divine plan would have been for their lives.

Some of them may end up becoming alcoholics themselves. And then from there, they will marry, and then they will end up treating everyone in their families in the same way their fathers had treated them. And then they have children, their children see and watch their dysfunctional behavior, and then some of them end up repeating the same behavior as they grow older and move into their own marriages.

You thus have the sin of one father being visited down several generations – all because no one knew how to break the curse line that had developed as result of the original sin from the first sinning alcoholic father.

All of this kind of negative activity could perfectly describe what God is trying to tell us in this verse. And then to possibly top it off, you have demons who will come in and feed off this kind of extreme behavior through the alcoholic parent, making everyone else’s life in the family miserable as a result.

You walk into these kinds of houses, and you can literally feel yourself walking into a dark oppressive cloud.

What happens in this kind of scenario in reference to actual demonic activity is that demons will target some of the children to go after. They will try and attach themselves to the child at an early age and start to try and pull them into this darker way of living.

If that child is a born-again Christian, they will try and sever the child’s personal relationship with the Lord. They will attack their mind, their emotions, and their sense of self-confidence and self-esteem. Many of these children grow up with low levels of self-esteem and self-confidence as a result of all the verbal abuse they have had to put up with from their dysfunctional parent or parents.

When the child gets old enough to leave the home, the demons will follow the child and will still try and stay attached to them. I have personally run across several woman who had demons following them into their adult life and literally attacking them on a periodic basis.

They would then command the demons to leave them in the name of Jesus, but that would only work for a short period of time, and then the demons would come back for additional attacks.

What is happening in the spiritual realm behind the scenes is that the demons apparently have developed enough of a legal right to stay attached to that child as a result of the sins and transgressions of the original sinning parent.

What the demons have now formed out as a result of the original parent’s severe transgressions against the Lord is a curse line between that parent and the child.

What this now means is that before you can cast the demons off you for good – you will first have to fully break the curse line that the demons have been feeding and operating on over all of those years from living with the original sinning parent.

We have another article in our site titled, Battle Prayer to Break a Generational Curse Line. This article is also in the “Spiritual Warfare” section of our site.

In this article, I give you a step-by-step process on how to properly break a generational curse line that may have originated from a dysfunctional parent or parents. Once you properly break that curse line, then you can turn around and verbally engage with the demons and command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ.

In this article, I also give you the exact battle prayer I drew up for a 16 year girl who had this exact problem – with demons literally attacking her from time to time – and sometimes quite severely as a result of the demons who were on her natural father. What these demons were attempting to do was to jump and transfer down to her so they could then form out that curse line, which would then make it easier for them to be able to follow, torment, and harass her as she was growing into her adult life.

This girl was spiritually wise beyond her years. She had a very close powerful walk with her Lord and Savior, and she had quite a bit of knowledge on spiritual warfare. But what she could not figure out was why these demons were being allowed to chase after her and torment her like they had been doing for quite a number of years.

Once I received the background information on her and her family, it was very easy to spot where the demons were coming from. This article will explain to you how the father got the demons on him in the first place – and then how they were attempting to jump and transfer from him onto his daughter to form out a curse line so they could then continue to chase and follow after her into her adult life.

  2. Pastor George - September 6, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    Sir thank you very much for such an eye openning teaching, it’s so clear and straight forward not exalting the devil as many writers ignorantly do but this one exposes him. This is one of the most touching lights I have ever come across and may the good God that we serve refresh you and give you more. I thank God who linked me to this site before I taught the people anything to do with deliverance. Once more thank you and all glory to God.

    Why should we fight against demonic powers? they are already defeated on the cross, that’s the place were every curce was broken, there are no generationcurses anymore, only the curse of walking with an unrenewed mind who believe the lie of seperation between us and the father, in other words we believe the lie of generationcures because we believe in the lie of seperation and therefore it manifests in died instead of believing the fact of the new creation reality. We are not fighting on the valley of the shadow of shadow of death anymore, death is demolished and the enemy has zero autority anymore, we rule and reign with Christ in heavenly places above all principalities and powers. BLIZZ

    • Tiecher - July 1, 2016 at 2:54 am

      We know that Jesus completed everything on the cross and gave us authority over all the power of the enemy, according to Luke 10:19. Why should we have to put on the whole armor of God, if we are not going into battle? Why give us authority, if we never need to take authority over the enemy? Why is the Word our weapon, if we didn’t have to fight? Why did Jesus say our fight is not against flesh, but against principalities, and spiritual wickedness in high places, if we did not have to war against spiritual wickedness in high places?

  4. Richard - January 7, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    I thank God for your articles on the activities of demons and how to get rid of them. Due to my experiences in the past, you have added more to my knowledge on spiritual warfare than ever before. May God rid us of the malaise of ignorance of the enemy’s tricks and schemes through your articles. God bless and protect you for the good work you’re doing.

  5. WarriorSaint - January 16, 2014 at 8:31 am

    I’d like to ask for clarification if I may: I understand the Generational Curses are a very popular teaching but according to Ezekiel 18 there is no more such thing as a generational curse anymore. Abba Father even said to the Isrealites to never refer to it again!

    Eze 18:1 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying, 2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge? 3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. 4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. 5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, 6 And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour’s wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman, 7 And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; 8 He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, 9 Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.

    Eze 18:19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

    To illustrate this point even better and in fact, if you are in Christ Jesus, you are a son of God and a Co-Heir and our Heavenly Father have NOT sinned! The fact of the matter is that demons are in these people’s life illegally and should be dealt with accordingly and no mercy is to be shown to them. You are a NEW CREATION in Christ Jesus and OLD THINGS have passed away the moment that He is made the Lord and Master of your life.

  6. Kristy Dye - May 22, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    To Blizzard: Isaiah 59:19 when the enemy comes like a flood God raises a standard against him.1st Peter 5:8 Satan walks earth to seek whom to devour. Revelation3:5 if you keep his commands your name won’t be blotted out of book of life- you have to b saved n name found inside to be blotted out, once saved always saved, not so bc the bible says.James 2:19 even the demons believe and tremble, proof they’re real!!!!! Ephesians 6:12 we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities of the air and spiritual FORCES(demons) of evil in the heavenly realm.
    Whoever don’t believe in demons needs to
    Read the bible. Jesus said he’s the same yesterday today and forever n if he did it then he’s doing it now. When Jesus ascended to
    Heaven his first words to his disciples were::: in my name you shall cast out demons. Jesus said it n that settles it for me. When you
    Don’t acknowledge Satan and his demons you can’t know his tactics or anything about him or his ways. He hopes to keep you ignorant of his schemes. 2nd Corinthians 2:11 says he would not have us ignorant of Satan and his schemes. I hope that you won’t stay ignorant and unbelieving. Satan tempted Jesus himself. Do you really think he can’t tempt and torment you?

      Just keep praying and putting your trust in God! Ant problem that Jesus is aware of is as good as taken care of. So rejoice!

  8. ogbonna lois - January 7, 2015 at 7:32 am

    thank you so much for this article and thank you too warriorsaint but i have an issue. warrior saint, i have used that verse severally and i worked but i always get a rebound. not that i sin in any way that should bring them back but they come. i have consulted pastors and christian friends and after serious prayers the air is cool and before a month latest i feel an attack. when these attacks come i win with the word of God. what i dont understand is why the re-attacks always. i have no occult things in my abode and by the blood am separated from them but i get attacked. last night i notice my soul being called out. i saw myself running to embrace someone and immediately i started praying and it ceased. i believe the generational curse is broken by the blood of jesus so why do they get to me. by get to me i mean they come after me always. i know jesus fought his battle till death and the bible says if they had known they would not have crucified the prince of peace. is there a higher glory or calling for these “trainings”.

  9. Prince of Peace Deliverance - January 31, 2015 at 2:42 pm

    @Ogbonna Lois, As a deliverance minister, a very important thing you need to do to stop the attacks at home is to anoint and seal your home. Take oil, any kind of oil, and ask Father God to sanctify and make it holy. Next, put a dot of oil on the top, right and left of each door and window. Leave one door or window unanointed. Then say,”In the name of Jesus Christ, I now anoint my home and make it holy unto the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I command every demonic spirit to leave my home now out the unanointed door (or window). Do not touch anything on the way out and do not leave anything behind!” Then anoint the last door or window and ask the Father to sanctify and seal your home in Jesus name. DONE!!! Then just thank our Father and our Lord Jesus for the protection. You can do the same with the 4 Corners of your property if you own your home.

  10. Joshua - January 28, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    Ham and warrior saint, you are absolutely right, knowing who you are, what you have, and where you are in Christ, makes you conquer any form of demonic attack

  11. Anonymous - August 25, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    This is exactly what I’m going through right now, sins of my father idol worship. I have been trying to go through deliverance but have not seen a pastor that’s gifted for complete deliverance. This demon is literally living in my house since I got married the second time. I have fasted, prayed, cried several times. I’m waiting on the Lord to set me free.

    • Dan - October 4, 2016 at 8:53 pm

      You are missing the regular practice of the Sacraments of the Church to help sustain your faith…please go and seek out a Priest…even if you are not Catholic. He will explain to you how they fortify the HolyvSpirit inside of you

      • Liz Cutajar - February 12, 2017 at 4:30 pm

        A priest ? there is no heirarchy within the true Church of the living God. All believers are called priests with the only high priest the Lord Jesus Christ.1Pet chap 2.
        Also, in Eph 4:11 we can see the 5 fold ministry.And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

  12. gloria brown - October 14, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Think you Pastor i have been looking for an answer for weeks reading and i came across your page.my family has been under a curse the things i seen in my family and the doors i found myself opening up i did not kow that i was opening up to be attacks, i ask for forgiveness iam praying to the lord that i dont go back to any of the sin so many people dont know that some were down the line they have open up doors and dont know why life is the way its i struggle and i wonder why my family were like this way until i did some talking to one of my family member now i know why we have been under a generational curse.

  13. Dessalegn Dencha - February 12, 2017 at 8:01 am

    Thank you for your excellent lesson. I want to follow you

  14. WhitD86 - March 20, 2017 at 7:12 am

    Today is the first time I have been on this webpage but I have really enjoyed so many of the encouraging articles I have read so far. I was automaticaly drawn and intriqued when I saw the articles regarding spiritual warfare because I have a very discerning spirit and have often got ridiculed by some of the ones closest to me only because I try to make them aware of the real battle going on around them and that its no game or anything to take lightly. I too thought that the curse of the generations was done away with after Jesus came but I may be mistaken so please explain that to me if you dont mind. Also since reading your article on demons and the generational curse, I have become extremely concerned. I am a born again Christian and although I have backslid in the past, I have always been brought up in church and taught about the Lord. To be only 30, I do have a great deal of knowledge about the bible and have always known and loved Jesus so I would greatly appreciate if you could give me some insight on my concern. For the longest time I thought that Christians could not become posessed. I understood and believed that demonic spirits are out for all Christians, but was under the impression they couldnt come but so far and could not touch us or take our lives or as the phrase Ive always used when rebuking Satan, “cant cross the bloodline”.But as I was reading the story about the girl who had the alcoholic father and it sounded so much like my story. I had an alcoholic stepfather as a young girl who was extremely verbally and mentally abusive and my biological father battled addiction for many years along with depression and took his own life when I was 16 and I was actually the one to find him after he had hung himself in our backyard. My half brother by my dad had also committed suicide a few years before that. I suffered extreme psycological damage from those experiences and although my dad was the complete opposite of my stepdad and was nothing but kind and loving towards me, the years of mental abuse took a toll. I started using drugs myself approx a year after losing my dad and as much as I resented them due to seeing what they did to my dad, I was looking for anything to numb the pain and escape reality. Thankfully after a 10 year battle with addictions of all sorts, Jesus pulled me back in and filled that void I had been so desperately trying to fill with things of the world. Its been a little over 3 years now that I have been clean and devoted to Jesus. but it has still been some torment going on. I refused to let Satan destroy me in the same manner he did my brother and my dad and I am determined to fulfill Gods purpose for me in this life. I wont deny that Ive never had suicidal thoughts but I have refused to let them stay there but I have battled depression worse since giving my life back to God than I ever have. we have since moved, but about two years ago, I lived in a house that my husband and I both used to believe carried an evil spirit. I could leave for a while and every time when I would return I would have this dark, empty, depressing feeling come over me. It seems the more I have rebuked the idea of suicide in the past three years, the more it has followed me. My husband has no mental issues as I do yet there have been several times he would snap and put a gun to his head, attempted to hang himself and when I tried to stop him, turned on me and literally began trying to hang me. Its hard to explain but I knew then and there I was not dealing with him and as I was fighting to break free he has this unbelievable strength that came to him and began to over power me. At that moment, I knew I was facing a demon or evil sprit of some sort but that I was not fighting flesh and blood. He has baby blue eyes but they were black as smut. I did the only thing I knew to and feeling completely helpless, knowing this wasnt him and he was going to kill me, I cried out to Jesus. With very little breath or room to say anything because the cord was so tight around my neck I bellowed out “I rebuke you Satan in the name of Jesus, get thee behind me” and my husband is a Christian also so I was already in complete shock over what was taking place but it was confirmed that I was up against a force of evil when he began to mock me. I said it only once with every bit of power and authority I had in me and knew at that moment that only Jesus could stop what was taking place and although I believed in the power in his name, I had never been in a position to see it at work but it was like a light switch cut off and my husband turned and walked back in our house and was some sort of daze for just a few seconds then had no idea what was going on and to this day does not recall that incident. There have been only a few other instances that serious and its not as bad since we moved out of that house, but I still deal with severe depression and it seems like the ones around me that I am the closest to and love the most seem to throw suicide out every time something bad happens in their life. It seems like the harder I try to resist it, although i wont allow those thoughts to take over, that spirit follows me and works on the people that Ive always looked at as strong in that aspect. Its torment constantly worrying about what will happen if this happens or that happens..I know God doesnt want me living in fear but its also discouragement and jealousy. There was a time in the past when my husband became addicted to pornography and was also extremely mentally, physically and emotionally abusive to me off and on for about 9 years. I have always had an extremely low self esteem regardless to what everyone around me says and its unexplainable but deep down i know im not how I feel but it has become a form of bondage along with jealousy over every woman that I see, and continually fighting off discouragement and depression. I try to speak faith and not give the devil an inch to get in, but i just cant seem to overcome the way I feel about myself and the emptiness I feel so often and fight with all my might but often feel like its to no avail and im fighting a losing battle. I had no idea that evil spirits and demons could literally attack you in the way you have described but to this day, sometimes over a petty disagreement, I have seen that in my husbands eyes and would just get away but occassionally I can sense something different in him and cant pinpoint what it is but can just sense this sort of prideful, arrogant, mean attitude that I know can escalate to cruelness so again I try to get away because everytime it happens and i pick up on it and point out that theres something different going on with him, he becomes extremely defensive and really upset and goes on to say its in my head and then within minutes starts being so bitter and mean and saying things to me that he knows have crushed me in the past. I just get a little confused and dont know what to think anymore. I will be convinced in my heart that its something in him thats not of this world, but have been thinking all alone that because he gave his life back to Jesus that it was somehow my fault for claiming that and would start believing it was in my head and that maybe I go a bit too far with the spiritual warfare but I can literally feel this resentment from him suddenly out of nowhere has towards me and until this happens, he never treats or speaks to me like that and hasnt in over 3 years. I need some type of advice and insight on whether Im imagining things and would rather blame it on an evil spirit than to think he would be that cold to me again. I need some sort of peace from the thoughts I battle but I want to know if its something im dealing with mentally or spiritually. I want to know what im up against
