As we have said over and over in many of our articles, the number one thing that we as Christians should be doing for the Lord is to lead as many people as we possibly can into eternal salvation through Jesus Christ. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is greater and more important than leading a lost soul into the saving grace of our Lord and Savor Jesus Christ.
In this article, I want to give you a very powerful, spiritual warfare tactic and strategy that you can use when trying to witness to someone who has demons attached to them. As many of you probably already know, you will have a very hard time in trying to witness to someone if they have demons attached to them. The reason being is that the demons will rise up on the person as you are trying to witness to them, and they will then try and prevent your words from being able to reach their minds.
The demons will try to run a shield between you and the person’s mind so they will not fully understand what you are trying to tell them. The demons will either try to disorient and confuse the person you are trying to witness to, or they will try and make them mad at you. But in either event, you will not be able to “reach” the person with the message of the Gospel in order to get them saved.
If you ever run across someone who has been very hard to reach with the truth of the Gospel, and you suspect they may have demons attached to them, what you can do before you get ready to try and witness to them, is to speak out loud to the demons, telling them that they are to stand down and to be completely silent once you walk into that room to start to witness to this person.
I have read of numerous testimonies where people were having a hard time in getting some of their friends and family members saved due to the demons rising up on the person and disrupting the flow of the conversation.
These people were not able to make any kind of headway with the people they were witnessing to as the demons were doing a good job in running interference.
But once they commanded the demons to stand down and not to interfere with the conversation, then they were able to lead their friends and family members into a true salvation experience with the Lord very quickly. This tactic and strategy is so simple, yet so effective, and it could be the key that will open up the door for you so you can get your friend or family member saved.
How to Use This Strategy
Here is an example of how you can use this specific warfare strategy, along with a sample type of battle command you can use to command the demons to stand down so you can properly witness to your friend or family member.
Example: Say you are trying to witness to your father. He is not saved and you either know or suspect that he has demons attached to him. You have tried to witness to him numerous times before, but you can barely get him to talk about Jesus for two minutes before he either wants to change the subject matter, starts to get disoriented and confused, or he just flat out gets mad and hostile with you, telling you that he simply does not want to talk to you about God and Jesus.
If this is the kind of situation you have been dealing with for quite a long period of time with someone, here is what you can try and do now using this particular spiritual warfare tactic:
1. Say for example you are getting ready to see your father on a Sunday afternoon. Before you leave the house, you start picking up from the Holy Spirit that He will be wanting you to try and witness to your dad once again. If you pick up that kind of leading from the Holy Spirit before you actually leave the house, you can now try to employ this strategy either at your own house before you leave to see your father, or you can do it sometime in the car before you actually arrive at your father’s place.
2. What you will now do is speak out loud to the demons, telling them that you are now getting ready to see your dad and that they are not to interfere with the conversation that you will now be having with him. You will first of all have to speak all of this type of battle command out loud to the demons so they can hear you loud and clear in the spirit realm.
There is no “distance” in the realm of the spirit, so the demons will hear you loud and clear once you start speaking out this kind of a direct command to them, even if your dad lives 50 miles away from where you live at. The Holy Spirit Himself will also make sure they hear you loud and clear so they will fully obey all of your direct orders to them.
3. Now here is a good, sample type of battle command that you can use so you can get these demons to back down on your dad so you will have free clearance and access to your dad’s mind so you can properly witness to him once you get over there.
And when I get over there, I want every single one of you to stand down and to be completely silent. I repeat, in the name of Jesus Christ, I am now commanding every single one of you to stand completely down and back off him the minute I walk into that door to talk with him.
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ, I now bind up each and everyone of you so you cannot move an inch on my dad, and so you cannot interfere with the conversation I will now be having with him.
In the name of Jesus Christ, his mind will remain perfectly free and clear from all of your evil influence as I am talking directly to him this afternoon.
Demons, once again, you are not to interfere with our conversation. You are not to try and come up into my dad’s mind and block the flow of our conversation or attempt to run any kind of interference with him. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are to stand completely down and remain completely silent until I am completely finished with him and I walk out his front door.
Demons, in the name of Jesus Christ, this is a direct command to each and everyone of you, and you are to fully obey every part of this direct command.”
This would be the basic gist on how to word out this type of battle command to these demons so you will be able to properly witness to your dad once you get over to his house.
Again, if there are any of you who are having a hard time in trying to get any of your friends or family members saved, and you suspect that demons may be running some kind of interference with your witnessing attempts, do not be afraid to try this particular strategy out. You will have absolutely nothing to lose in trying this tactic out and everything to gain if by chance this tactic does work.
Sometimes, something this simple will be the thing that will open up the door to get your loved one saved. I have read about this strategy numerous times in all of the spiritual warfare books I have read and there have been many documented cases where this particular strategy really did work. And when it does work, it can work very, very quickly. Sometimes the person will get saved on the very first time that you try this strategy.
This is another good spiritual warfare tactic for your arsenal should you ever need it.
