The Discerning of Spirits

Last updated on:

This next gift is one that is really needed in the dangerous and perilous times that we are now living in.

The first thing to notice about this gift is that the “s” in the word “spirits” is with a small “s.” This means that it is not referring to the Holy Spirit. The only other spirits that are out there that this gift is referring to are the following three kinds of spirits:

  1. Demonic spirits
  2. God’s angels
  3. Human spirits

What happens in this gift is that the Holy Spirit will give you supernatural discernment, insight, and knowledge involving these three kinds of spirits. Many of the times, this gift will be be used to fully expose what is really going on and operating behind the scenes with someone.

Here is how this gift will come into play with each one of these kinds of spirits.

A) Demonic Spirits – with demonic spirits still being allowed to roam in the air and interact with us to some degree in this life, we really need this gift in full operation today just to handle this one type of bad evil spirit.

As you know, many times demons can literally enter into a person’s body if they have the appropriate legal rights to be able to do so. But once they are in someone’s body, they will then try and hide and not show themselves.

They know if they get caught and exposed on the inside of that person’s’ body, they risk that person either finding Jesus if they are not saved yet, or if it is a Christian, that this person will then seek out a deliverance from another believer.

Since some demons are very good at hiding on the inside of someone once they enter in, God needs to activate this gift through some of His own so they can detect when a demon is on the inside of someone and expose its presence.

Once the demon has been exposed, then you can set the person up for a deliverance. But the first thing to be able to do is to discern and detect that the demons are already on the inside of that person in the first place.

There are several ways that this type of discernment can work in this realm.

First, the people who have this gift in operation from the Holy Spirit will sometimes be able to “see” the demons manifest through a person’s eyes. Sometimes the demons just cannot help themselves and they sometimes will rise up and show themselves through a person’s eyes. They will literally be looking directly at you through this person’s eyes.

When you see this kind of a manifestation happen, what you will see is pure hate and pure evil looking at you. You will be able to tell that this is not the person they are residing in. This kind of a look can also be caught on camera quite a bit, as demons sometimes like to show themselves when that person is getting their picture taken.

Again, you do need this gift of discerning of spirits from the Holy Spirit to be able to see this when it happens, but it is very easily seen by the people who do have this gift in full operation from the Holy Spirit.

Another way that the Holy Spirit will help you discern and sense demons in someone is through either a sense of smell or a sense of feeling. Some people will get a real sick feeling in their stomach, like they want to vomit when they either see or get around someone who has a demon on the inside of them.

I have a friend who has this special gifting on the inside of her from the Holy Spirit, and this is always one of her tells when she knows that she is sensing a demon on the inside of someone.

Other people will be able to literally smell their presence, and their smell is extremely noxious and toxic. The people who have this kind of gifting say it is the worse smell they have ever smelled.

What the Holy Spirit is doing with this kind of gift is pulling back the curtains in the spiritual realm and allowing you to either see, feel, or smell the demons in the person they are residing in.

Then once the demons have been exposed as being on the inside of that person, then you can move in to set that person up for a deliverance if they will be open to it.

Another way you can pick up a demon being on the inside of someone is just through a strong inner knowing or a strong sensing from the Holy Spirit.

You may not be able to see them in the person’s eyes when they do come up and manifest, or feel them or smell them, but you can get a strong inner knowing or a strong sensing from the Holy Spirit that this person does have demons on the inside of them.

B) God’s Angels – The Bible tells us that God’s angels are also spirit beings. They are ministering spirits.

Throughout history God’s angels have appeared to people many times. The Bible is full of these kinds of stories from the Virgin Mary, to Daniel, to the apostle John in the Book of Revelation.

However, the Bible also warns us that Satan and his demons can appear to us as angels of light. As a result, you will need proper discernment from the Holy Spirit if an angel were to ever appear to you.

The false religions of Islam and Mormonism are two perfect examples of demons appearing as angels of light to the two people who started these two false religions.

If those two people would have known how to properly test a spirit appearing to them, those two demon angels could have easily been stopped dead in their tracks and those two false religions could have easily been prevented from ever having started up.

If an angel were all of a sudden to ever appear to you, the first thing you will need to do is properly test it out. 1 John tells us exactly how to do this. Here is the verse:

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, BUT TEST THE SPIRITS, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.

And this is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” (1 John 4:1-4)

What this means is that you directly ask the angel to identify who his Lord and Master is. He better say that it is Jesus Christ. Then you ask him to confess to you that Jesus Christ has come to our earth in the flesh.

If the angel cannot make this direct confession to you that Jesus Christ has already come to our earth in the flesh, then you are dealing with a real, live, demonic spirit masquerading as an angel of light.

At this point, you should command the demon to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ.

In addition to the above test, you could also receive a strong discerning of spirits direct from the Holy Spirit. You will immediately sense that something is not right with this angel, and you will then pick up with a strong inner knowing that this is not an angel from God.

If it is an angel from God, you should feel a sense of peace and comfort coming in from the Holy Spirit, as He should be bearing witness that this is one of God’s angels.

C) Human Spirits – in addition to angels and demonic spirits, the third kind of spirit this gift is referring to is just our own human spirits. For instance, someone could have a bad spirit of pride on them.

It will not be a demonic spirit giving this person this kind of bad pride, it will just be his own natural spirit, as we are all totally capable of having bad kinds of spirits build up in our systems without the help of any kind of demonic spirits, since we have already been born into this world as corrupt sinners.

Where this gift will really come into play is on discerning some of the real bad apples that are out there, especially those of the criminal type such as money scammers and swindlers. Pedophiles are especially good at seducing some of the family members so they can then work themselves into getting closer to some of their younger children.

That is why parents especially have to keep a sharp eye on any new people who come into their immediate circle of influence.

Just realize that this is a gift that the Holy Spirit can manifest for you and to always keep yourself open and sensitive to anything that the Holy Spirit may want to transmit your way if you ever do come across a few bad apples such as these types.

God the Father is very protective over His own, and He will not hesitate to have His Holy Spirit give you major warning signals if you ever start to cross paths with a bad and evil apple who is either targeting you, or any of your close friends or family members for some kind of an evil act.

  1. Most of the time when am in a church and pastor is preaching,the moment he/she opens the mouth i could sense the spirit in her/her behind the sermon.Even talking to somebody in a phone i could sense a spirit in her/him,then i informs them the presence of evil spirits and all of them confirm to be true but i dont know what to do next.To my experience,i realized that the gift of discerning spirits is functioning well if my heart is pure,free from troube or anxiety.When my heart is engaged in meditating Gods word its easily to sense evil spirits even by looking at somebody,listening to christian music,hearing sermon,reading gospel message or entering the room.But,it should be known that the Holyspirit reveals as He wills not the time we want.

  2. This is the 1st time I’ve heard anything about seeing bad spirits through people’s eyes. Last year I would often see glowing, shiny, but dark eye when I’d look into the bathroom mirror. And yes, only my left eye. Maybe one eye has to be yours to see something in you. Idk! At 1st I thought it was from the mirror being foggy. When I mentioned it to my boyfriend, he didn’t believe me. I was like “seriously! You haven’t noticed after your showers?” I tried showing him after my next shower, but it didn’t happen. I felt so stupid and then really afraid. After that id wrap up with towel and get out of the bathroom asap. I use to be more religious. I still pray at dinner with my kids. Still love Christian music station. But the connection with God is lost/doesn’t interest me. I can’t believe I’m even saying this! I feel numb to it. Even writing this I feel zombified. I love god! So I know that I need to fight thru this dullness and ask for help!!!!! Moved a year ago, and the
    eye’s haven’t happened since. But the connection is still gone. Is there something in me or around me!!??, help!! And is it a bad sign if birds hit windows? New house, new problems. Two different rooms 5mins apart. Not the same bird. 1st bird flew straight away from house. Didn’t see the second just jumped and ran! Any ideas on what I should do?

  3. Going through demonic attacks and don’t know what to do. I sense the Holy Spirit but feel I have a demon living in my face. They cant both be there. Born again Christian. Why wont the demon leave?

    • When we come to God, Satan doesn’t want to let us go. The fight is for our souls. Stay close to God and He will stay close to you! When we get saved, we have an anointing in our lives and Satan wants to take that away. A seed has been planted in your life – read the parable in Matthew 13. I’ve read several great books about open doors and other things in our life which can still give access to the demonic. Kris Vallotton – Spirit Wars, Rebecca Greenwood – Defeating Strongholds of the Mind. Jake Kail ministries goes over deliverance and demonic influence. I hope these help!

  4. I have a question. I’m just now starting to better understand discernment of spirits, which I believe I have had for all my lift. People have often times called me an empathy (New Age word) because I would feel what others feel, most often I would think these feelings were my own (rather than what they truly were – the feelings of others I was near or perhaps demons that were attached to them).

    Here is my question: If you are in the presence of the evil spirit of hate, as a discerner, do you start to hate or do you feel hated? My spiritual discernment is feeling, as in emotion. I take on the emotions and sometimes attitude/thoughts of others. For instance, around one person I would always become insecure and be overwhelmed with self-doubt. Another example is that I might feel judged in the presence of another person, would that indicate (assuming it is not my own issues and it is truly to do with spiritual discernment) that the person under the influence of an evil spirit is feeling judged and I feel what they do, or does that person have a judgemental spirit and I can sense them judging me so feel judged?

    I would guess that each person’s ‘gift’ operates differently, so my answer may only come through my being brave enough to ask the person directly so that I might learn how it works for me. I was just hoping others might have insight or might share their own experience around this.

    • Hello, i think just ask God’s advice or guidance or help for your situation.

      I hear other advices that we were here and capable of that to pray for them. So let’s just pray and trust God.

    • I hope someone will answer you with insight!! I came online searching for the same thing, wondering if what I am feeling or thinking, is actually from other people. I guess we can and should pray about it, even if we don’t get an answer from God. I guess the only thing I am starting to recognize is that when I feel or think these things, if they are out of alignment with God and his truth, whether it is mine or not, I must take is captive and give it to God. That gives me peace and comfort enough.

  5. From time to time in my life I have had spiritual discernment about people. It took me a really long time to discover that what I was feeling about different people had to do with the gift of spiritual discernment. Sometimes it was so severe I was having upset stomach. Other times it was just a “down” sense in my spirit. It has been a lotta years since. I live in a retirement community and was paired up with a woman who was new, so that I could show/tell her the “ropes” and get acquainted with everything and everybody. That was a couple years ago and I still feel this “down” sense in my spirit every time I even see her. I don’t like feeling this, but I don’t really know what to do or whether I should do anything other than just be cautious in the relationship.

    • Hi Wendy, I have come to realize that when we are given insight/discernment about another person, that we are called to pray for them. It is amazing how praying for the person will lift the feeling (of sadness, dread, etc.) from the one praying. I’m hopeful that it lifts some of the weight off the person we are praying for as well. I’ve recently begun to learn about spiritual warfare and do some warring on their behalf as well.

      • To my experience Julie,when the Holyspirit reveals to you the influence of evil spirits in somebody He wants to deliver him through you.What i have realized is that,inform that person and when he confirms to be true(confession) and is ready to receive God’s help you can pray for him,by castibg out that demon.Remember,when God reveals something(revealed word from God’s mouth) and the Holyspirit is ready to set that person free.Be strong and bold,i have delivered many people in this way.

  6. I too have this gift and others as well. About 6 to 7 mths ago, my husband had a heart attack. After the drs were taking good care of him, I left to come home. As I got home, I told our son what was going on and after that, the Lord told me for me and my son to pray for my husband’s heart and soul. Told my son what to do while I went into prayer warrior mode. As I was praying, I reclaimed my husband back, home, property, son, and etc. Then the prayer got more intense. I could not see the actual demons, but spiritually, I knew right where they were. They had surrounded my house, waiting to attack. I took off my jacket, slammed it on the driveway and I started to tell these demons they were not invited, this is God’s house and they had to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. After I was done, my son looked at me and said, “Mom, they left, they fear you and they dont like Jesus.” The more we seek Him and read His word, the more He will explain to you how to utilize your gift. Ask Him to remove any fear you may have due to the what you experience with this gift. As time goes on and you practice the gift, the more you will stand boldly in Christ and cast the demons away. Your discernment will always let you know when evil is present. Remember, the moment you accepted Christ into your heart, you were baptized with the Holy Spirit and have been given the same Authority as Christ has. That night, I learned how to channel my anger to getting angry with these things trying to mess with my family. It was an awesome experience!!!

  7. Several years ago got on a train, it was a bright sunny morning and as I took my seat I glanced up at the passenger opposite. As I looked into her eyes I trembled in horror as I saw what can only be described as pure evil staring back. It wasn’t the sort of ‘evil’ that you see in someone who you can tell is up to no good, but an otherworldly spirit from a different dimension. The spirit was in the form a well dressed business woman and no-one else seems to notice this in her. I couldn’t look back at her again and have since researched this subject as it is something I’ve never forgotten. I am a Christian and have had insights to things before they happen, yet I’m not able to call upon this, it just happens. I know I’ve been protected by the Lord on the past and I think I have what is called Spiritual Discernment. I don’t know what I should have done, if anything, other than get off the train as soon as I possibly could and not dare look at her again. I have since told my local vicar.

  8. The first and the last being evil, and the second and third good, the judgment required is to discern the cause of a given impulse. Although some people are regarded as having a special gift to perceive this by intuitive light, most people are regarded as needing study and reflection, and possibly the direction of others.

    • I want to say that Jesus is real and that, I think I have the gift of discernment because i was reading my bible for the first time for about a week straight I went searching for GOD the holy spirit came into my room one night while i was asleep. He woke me up out of my sleep I sat up like a robot, I didnt feel groggy or sleepy, it was like I was instantly woke but I was aware of everything that was going on, and I’m sitting up in my bed and all of a sudden my left arm being to move as if it were sayin “Come follow me” you know how you tell someone, to come follow me with your arm in body language that’s exactly what my arm was doing but it wasnt me, so once my arm started moving i began to watch my arm, i watched it for about 5 seconds and then i tried to control my arm, I tried to move it myself but I couldn’t, I could feel a presence inside of me it was a man he was masculant and he was very strong I could feel his strength but at the same time he was gentle elegant and soft he was moving gently and soft, so after I realized that I had no control over “MY ARM” the fear began to rise from the tip of my toes I got very scared my mother was in the next room asleep, my eyes got big I opened my mouth to get ready to scream “Mama” before I could get the M out Jesus turned my fear off like a switch and it was as if what I witnessing was normal and then I became very relaxed and I started back watching my arm and I became curious I wanted to know who my arm was talking to there was no else in the room only me, I started looking around to see I saw nothing as time passed I figured it out because I would always think about it, Jesus was telling me to follow him like the disciples,but that wasnt the end the holy spirit gave me the gift of discernment that night when he came.I figured all this out on my own as time passed it took years to figure out but the holy spirit is always close to me my body so sensitive to the holy spirit I can call on Jesus and I can feel him come, I felt my friend’s mother when she passed away, I’ve felt a bad spirit before also I’m still learning the difference on how they feel, I really dont like funerals bc I can feel energy,i can go in a church house and feel Angels, I can tell you if your pastor is a good pastor or not because the holy spirit will let me know if I go in a church house and I dont feel the holy spirit at all that means the pastor is not a good he is doing something bad he’s not right it’s kinda hard to explain I’m still learning I get sick around certain people sometimes itll be like stay away but it’s not as bad as it sounds at all I went to visit my friend and she put the the TV on a pastor I knew the holy spirit was coming I felt him come when I feel a spirit/holy spirit I cant contain myself I told my friend wait, wait wait turn the TV off she said No, I said “He’s here! he’s here! He’s here! She said what I said Jesus and I could feel his presence, after I told he was here she said holy spirit I accept you in life and that when she started crying and falling to here knees, and the next day she said that was amazing I’ve felt the before but not like that she said you are like a radar she said you warned me she said it was warm and comforting she said I’m so glad you’re my friend lol

      • I’m so glad i found this. I am fully aware of spiritual gifts. I have had dreams and God has spoken to me prophetically but this new thing recently, is the discernment. The sick feeling i get around people or even when i see something that i know is evil. Like it’s God’s way of telling me things he wouldn’t approve of. It is happening more frequently. I was speaking to an atheist recently and felt very ill like i was going to throw up and pass out. It’s been happening more and more lately and i kinda thought that’s what was going on. Thank you for explaining. I have a better understanding. God bless.

      • I have extreme discernment as a prophet since a little child. Sometimes until you realize what these gifts are you think you feel all these emotional issues and think something is wrong with you ,but it’s not you all the time. You feel darkness or which spirits are more active. I live in a terrible place and it’s so heavy on me here in Baltimore, Md. The Holy Spirit lives within us shows us what we need to know by seeing, hearing , smelling, tasting and feeling. Your senses are part of discernment. The gifts are great but come with lots of spiritual attacks especially if someone is prophet/prophetic. we have to stay prayed up , fasted up and reading constantly..God will use this gift for you. Stay sensitive to the Holy Spirit he’s always with you and He will lead you into truth always! God bless you!

  9. Use to see at one time like orbs of lite floating all over my room and they usually would come out from Under the ceiling lites and would show up with different rings of colors and shaped at times as a heart and then when people would call me a specific color would be seen for them and even if I closed my eyes I would see them also,my daughter told me I might have eye problems and I told her not possible as these orbs would show up really huge and at that times I was also going through alot of emotional problems in my marriage and thought that some how god might have sent them for a reason or were they demonic,anyways I rarely see them anymore.Did anyone else experience something like this.

    • Yes. About 4 years ago my husband and I both saw a very large, about 4ft in diameter, bright blue orb appear in our room. It was very startling, but we weren’t filled with fear. We watched in utter amazement, and were completely mesmerized by it’s appearance. We stayed silent and still, as it floated its way through the wall of our room, and down the hallway. It then fizzled out, similar to how a car door light slowly goes off after the door has been closed. I have never seen an orb since, nor before that encounter. I still to this day do not know if it was demonic or angelic. I do know that I wasn’t in a good place when it happened, and was heavily under demonic oppression. Again, I’m not sure if it was to help or to harm. Either way, or ended up being a positive thing, because I immediately rebuked it in the name of Jesus Christ, and asked for forgiveness for the sinful nature of my life choices.

  10. I was visited by a dense like smoke that I could touch and gently tug on. I was lying awake on my bed in a dark room. I say visited because 12 hours earlier I witnessed a complete stranger pass on. Nothing has ever happened to me like this before. I interacted with this “thing” for at least 3-4 minutes, I felt the touch off my skin and the pressure applied with each touch on and over my arms. So I have to think that the two are definitely linked. Anyone else ever experience the same.

  11. I had a bad dream before, where I was in this massive mansion with no lights but there was only one room that has a lights on . I went upstairs and I could feel this heavy aura around me which made me uncomfortable . All of a sudden, I saw a shadowy black figure was hanging on the ceiling and once I saw that thing, it came to me so fast . Then I was awake from it and I got attacked by demons . I even heard a man voice was screaming (sounded so upset) on my left ear . I could feel like there was an invisible barrier that protect me from that demons . I tried to shout Jesus many times but something didn’t let me, then once I shouted His name, the attack stopped . My whole body felt so cold, never experienced that before .

    I think I have a gift from God, where I can sense evil spirits around me just like in my previous bad dream before . I would feel so uncomfortable like I can literally feel heavy aura around me . After I said “Go away in the name Jesus! You do not belong here”, I felt comfortable again .

    I am a teenager and I had a depression, anger issues and some addiction before . I got that dream after I decided to repent to Him at church . I realized that my own self was changing when I got depression because when I was a kid, I love Jesus so much, I always attend Sunday school, etc . Suddenly, I started to like dark things (blood,creepy stuff) but half of me know that this is not the real me . I often had suicidal thoughts, two times attempt of self-murder and etc but thanks to God, my whole life literally turned 360 degree after that experience happens . I also can sense something is not right around me, for example, I have a friends who are a Muslim and whenever they turned on their ‘Azan’ (prayer) in their phone, I feel so uncomfortable, that was my first time feeling it because all this time I never had that feeling before .

    It made me believe even though I’ve sinned too much, He is still there watching, He cares, He loves me and everyone . 🙂

  12. Eversince I was little I too had this gift. I could sense and feel things that my family and other people couldnt so they didnt understand what was going on. Every night I felt really scared and once i got older I asked God about this feeling that Ive been having all my life and when I began to search the Bible I had found that I have this gift. After I had read about my gift I understod that I didnt have to be afraid and that I had a gift from the Holy Spirit. Once I got in tune with it and not scared I began to experience other things like sensing them in people or roaming in places.

  13. I myself have this gift. I experienced it about 6 years ago. The demon showed himself through the eyes of a solider I had just slept with. Only thing when I looked up because I heard look slowly, his eyes were pitch black. Completely. I prayed the our father and for some reason I could feel he was more afraid than I was. Crazy thing was during intercourse my body did not want to fully land on him. I kept holding myself up. Lesson learned. Protect my temple. Not just anyone should have it.

  14. I am a single Christian woman who has been a Christian for decades. I went through a period where I dated a lot and God protected me from hypocritical men who were posing as Christians. He always gave me a word of wisdom and a superior memory which helped me catch them in lies or He exposed other behavior which revealed their true character. I have thought a lot about the words in the Bible referring to “testing the spirits” and prayed for that ability.
    About a week ago, I was at a party where I knew most of the Christians attending. However, there was one woman I had never met before. I listened as she interacted with a couple of other people there. And I got a very strange feeling about her, that she wasn’t what she was pretending to be. Can anyone give me any further insight? Was this a warning from the Holy Spirit?

  15. I have been recently saved and woke up one morning with this gift. I was scared at first seeing the demons in some people’s faces. But I asked the Lord to help me be not afraid of what I was seeing and he took.my fear away. I also have spiritual dreams of me laying hands or using God’s words to drive out demons. I am a new born again Christian so I pray to God for guidance. I have always been able to see spirits at times but not the demonic. I also saw beautiful folded angel wings beside my bed. I was so.comforted.and at.peace. it is God’s will what gifts he presents to us. I am the Lord’s vessel. Jesus is so mighty and powerful. My heart and soul belongs to him. Praise his name.

  16. Yes I have heard I have discernment of spirits from charismatic pastors! I don’t agree with them saying it is from the Holy Spirit since it doesn’t fit with the characteristics of the Holy Spirit or any definition given in the Bible of 1 John 4 or 1 Corinthians claiming it to be by a message both times! Mine is just simply feeling energy around people (not acting up) and has been confirmed by others who have known it to be witchcraft or on others which is a give away because of how they dress Islam! I also don’t agree with the seeing demons as a Holy Spirit comforter thing either!

  17. I saw that someone said that everyone was focusing on demonic spirits and not angelic so this couldn’t be from God. But in reality, we don’t understand why God has called a lot of people to see demonic spirits to what’s seems like a lot more than he used to. I have been in council and have come to find out that I actually do have the discernment of spirits but I know that when I was a child, I saw angels regularly. They were like beings of pure light that made sounds of song when they talked. They we beautiful and had no kind of shape or anything. Almost like the sun when it hits your face in he morning through the window. But along with that, I have seen demonic spitrits like at like flashes of darkness running past me in a blink of the eye. Almost like when your watching a movie and then it turned off completely for a scene and your eyes stretch out and you feel that sort of complete darkness. I don’t know why God gave me this gift but reading stuff like this gives me a little more reasoning on me always feeling like I was crazy.

    • I also have this gift. I didn’t realize it for a long, long time. The purpose is that we are not ignorant of the devils devices. It’s easy to forget that we are NOT wrestling against flesh and blood, but principalities, powers, spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies. There are many people who need deliverance, but aren’t aware so don’t ask for deliverance. That’s where this gift comes in. We can in the authority Jesus Christ has given us, Holy Spirit dwelling in us, can bind and loose, cast out, impart the Holy Spirit, the peace of God, change atmospheres, usher in the KINGDOM of God wherever we are. The Angels of the Lord DO HIS WORD. When they are present ASK the Lord what is their purpose. DECLARE the WORD of GOD that happens to be needed in situation, place, etc you are seeing them. Praise God!

  18. I have always seen glimpses of full figure black covered cloaked images. I can turn around one may be walking up but when I go to focus they disappear like a shadow with full body never see face or eyes just like a hollow thing really doesn’t scare me because I keep my mind in that moment focusing on God. But I am concerned if something may be following me.

    • This exact thing happened to me. I saw the same cloaked demon when I woke in the night standing over my husband. When I got it in full vision it disappeared. Please let me know if you have more info.

      • In the name of JESUS. Satan the LORD rebuke you!!! The evil spirit did as Jesus said “I saw satan fall light lightening, the demon turned and ran like lightening out of our bedroom.” You’ve been given power over all the power of the enemy. Practice, Get out in Jesus name, I cast you out in the name of Jesus, you have no rights in Jesus name, I bind you and cast you out in Jesus NAME. Pray asking God if any ‘legal rights’ have been giving to the enemy, such as unconfessed, unrepentant sin, or agreement with the enemy such as unforgiveness, ungodly alliances, even friendships. Then listen for the small still voice, that sometimes may seem to be a spontaneous thought. Our weapons are not carnal but mighty THROUGH God. READ the WORD about how Jesus, the apostles dealt with evil spirits, PRAY, and KNOW Jesus LOVES You and is FOR you

    • Ca, I have experienced something like this.

      the difference is the figure/entity/spirit/energy didn’t have a cloak, but it was pitch black; a a black that made the night shine like the day.

      another difference is that itt’s focus wasn’t on me, but it was watching someone through their window. When I first took notice of it I thought it was a person, I assumed a stalker. But once I realized what it was I felt fear. Once that fear settled in my spirit then the entity’s focus turned round to me. It felt like it had followed me home.

      Are they attracted to fear? Is fear a sign of a weak link in the chain that connects us to our Heavenly Father? Is fear a sign to them that they have a way in?

      whatever it means, Fear not brothers and sisters, and know that the LORD GOD would never leave us.

      If he brought us to it, allowed us to perceive it, he will bring us through it.

      He is ALWAYS with us.

      I love all of you.

      whatever you’re going through God has equipped you with all that you need to get through to the next step and eventually to conquer!

  19. I used to wonder why i could read people just by smelling their scent when they walk past. I often hold my nose on the bus just so i will not smell them and know what they’re going through or what type of spirit(s) they have or have on them. and now i know that i am not tripping at all!

  20. Everyone needs to READ THE WORD OF GOD, PRAISE OUR LORD JESUS MORE then focusing on demonic spirits! It’s interesting that everyone is only referencing demonic spirits and not the other two types of discernment of spirits. Our Lord Jesus Christ calls us to focus on him and be fully mature in his Love. What you focus on will prevail.

    • This is another litmus test for demonic spirits. When a person pretends that the most important thing to focus on is Jesus, that person has a spirit that has been exposed. When people feel uneasy when certain spiritual facts are EXPOSED, be careful when dealing with them. If you are sincere seek deliverance. You must be happy to hear the secrets of the enemy. We are at war with Satan and we must be happy to spy into his house and know his modus operandi!

    • You know a lot of people that say focus more on Christ in leave the spirits the evil spirits alone things like that what Bible verse comes to mind when when it says all Darkness shall come to light how is the darkness to come to light if we don’t bring it to the light or the we don’t let the Lord bring it to life through us a lot of evil spirits live inside of even Christian people who say they’re Christians and they don’t want to be found out all Darkness shall come to light in Jesus name and the spirit that you have doesn’t want to be found out either you might want to get a little closer walk with the Lord

    • that’s one way of looking at it.

      I veiw it as people trying to figure out why they are experiencing the things they are currently, or have in the past, experienced.

      I’d only label it as focusing on evil spirits it we were discussing the names of specific demons and their preferred dwelling places.

      You might be confusing the topic of the conversation and the focus. The topic is spiritual gifts that allow some to perceive that which goes unnoticed by the majority. The focus is how the LORD wants us to weld this gift.

      we aren’t discussing demonology.

    • This is the 1st time I’ve heard anything about seeing bad spirits through people’s eyes. Last year I would often see blurred, shiny, but dark eyes when I’d look into the bathroom mirror. Usually just I one eye. At 1st I thought it was from the mirror being foggy. When I mentioned it to my boyfriend, he didn’t believe me. I was like “seriously! You haven’t noticed after your showers?” I tried showing him after my next shower, but it didn’t happen. After that it would rarely happen. But when it did, I’d get out of the bathroom asap. I use to be more religious. I still pray at dinner with my kids. Still love Christian music station. But the connection with God is lost/doesn’t interest me. I can’t believe I’m even saying this! I feel numb to it. Even writing this I feel zombified. I love god! So I know that need to fight thru this dullness and ask for help!!!!! Moved a year ago, and the
      eye’s haven’t happened since. But the connection is still gone. Is there something in me or around me!!??, help!!

  21. I believe I have the gift of discernment. I see what people don’t normally I feel energy from people and the last two yrs if seen another realm I think I can’t see good so I take a lot of pictures if captured angry trees and little people like entities I once was very sick and what I thought would be a Angel looked like a fairy a small child color flowed from her I was at ahe she was beautiful shy timad and meek I told my mother to be quiet she didn’t want to be seen but it seemed to be fairy looking but her grace and meekness and everything showed with out a word at that moment I felt no pain but I was in between states my mother said I was seeing something she even looked so I’m not sure what to do with this gift the land ivseen things on had civil war on it a lot of blood shed I feel that wrongfull death maybe leaves angry spirits or souls here and they can’t rest I thought of being a morticain to help maybe a lost wondering soul I sacloud mainly because of what I see and feel off people I feel very alone in this world any answers for this would help

    • Ask God and he will guide you. Make sure you spend time alone with him reading the Bible and getting to know Jesus & learning scripture to protect yourself against any spiritual warfare. God bless you.

    • satan can come as an “angel of light”. A fairy weather sweet or graceful can be satan in disquise. God shows us the spirit realm for a reason in that moment and time frame. Dont feel alone in this world. You have God right? You are not alone. Seek after God, know him, follow him, and he will guide your way. You must be in lined and one with him for him to work in you. Your mind must not be in the world but in God. Transform your thinking so you think like jesus thinks. Think like jesus and do what he did. He will work in you and you will not feel alone.

    • Get baptized again and read the word of God while fasting. Ask him to reveal what he wants you to see and ask him for the baptism of the Holy spirit. Demons imitate God’s kingdom and use our gifts against us so it’s very important to discern & if your sensitivities leave you will know they were demonic and you’re free. If they increase you have to give everything to God to put them to use but the bible and holy spirit tell us that only demons pretend to be dead or lost human souls. We cannot speak with the dead God calls trying to an act of abominable defilement because it gives legal access like a doorway to the demonic realm. We are forbidden to speak to the dead for a reason. Read out deliverance renunciations and the apostles creed. Anytime you have a feeling that isn’t of God order any unclean spirits in the name of Jesus Christ to depart from you or else they will have to go into the lake of fire. Each time the feelings go away, you increase in your discernment gifts. Demons can send messages to eachother to imitate the fathers gifts and holy spirit prompted me to reply to you when you mentioned things I recognize from the demonic realm. The enemy either uses our gifts against us or we through God use our gifts against the enemy. It’s black and white. Hedge of protection and angelic assignments over you in Jesus’ name. Soak in the word and spirit, fellowship and give grace to God for the grace he gives you. Play worship music often. Give the enemy no access except what God allows to train you in his gifting according to his purposes or you are in danger and he loves you and wants you to be safe in his arms. Bless your home and annoint with oil in the shape of the cross in the name of the divine trinity. He’s calling you to war with this gift unless it goes away.

    • You didn’t ask for any correction, so i will refrain.

      All i am going to say is make sure you stay in the word.

      I’ve had some experiences that I thought were from the LORD, but when I went to His word, I was corrected and realized that I had been contacted by an angel of darkenss posing as an angel of light.

      I cant speak for your experiences, only you can.

      SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND

      stay in his word.

  22. If you belong to a church, ask everyone to pray for and over you. Also, certain illnesses can cause people to hallucinate. If you and your husband are Christians, and you confess that Jesus is Lord, and has walked on Earth….they are not in power over you, Jesus Christ is.

  23. I’ve been seeing demons for a while now. And I can tell you this gift is evolving. I started seeing the “typical” movie demon. But now, they are way different. Most look like some sort of creature from the ocean. Almost all of the more powerful ones are very brightly colored. They come into the room by a bright color picture that they make. Its a different one for each demon. I cannot express how beautifully colored they are. Some of the weaker ones are black and dark. The ones like this look like large spider looking things. I had even seen one that looked like it was made out of k’nex sticks. During the day, they look like shadows. But at night, they are way different. I know it is the same demon because it comes out of the same seal or picture. I had even seen them with a “man mask” on. I have even touched the webs they leave.

    My husband and I have been attacked by these things. One that looked like a bunch of bright red and green balls stuck together with jelly fish tentacles has attacked me. It came on the bed and weighed the bed down. Before I could take in a breath to say “Jesus”, it stabbed my legs. The wounds took 2 weeks before it started to heal. It looked like shingles where it got me. But, the wounds were ‘rotten’ like a bunch of spider bites.

    Most always they will leave in Jesus name, but one time a bunch of bright blue green snakes would not go. I was very afraid. It took 45 minutes of prayer and rebuking my sins before the name of Jesus would work. Also, on a few… you have to say “Yeshua”. I don’t know why.

    I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience or had seen these very bright colored demons. Has anyone noticed their gift evolving like this?

    • wow,, not my experience to date. have experienced a mattrice i acquired for a few weeks many years ago now,that something seriously was on or in the bed weighing me down several times but no visual manifestations to really speak of . again, as yet! I have drawn much closer to Jesus through additions and other set falls of life . nearing retiring age now. thank you for your experience here, Praise the Lord!!!

    • Rose,

      I have not seen this bright colored demons before. I am interested to know if you were asleep (like dreaming the in spirit realm) or fully awake? I have seen demons but more like the movie one’s first and then the more black and crawly ones. I woke up this morning with a very small bruise on my shoulder and I know I didn’t run into anything or poke myself. I thought maybe I get bit by a spider but there is no bump to confirm a bite it just looks like a bruise. But, I am starting to evolve in my gifts but haven’t gotten as operative as you have with these colored demons.

    • ^^^^
      Yes, the one I saw standing next to my bed was bright red holding some type of weapon.
      I yelled, “WHO IS IT???”
      in the blink of an eye, it was gone.
      I felt God’s presence surrounding me and protecting me through the entire experience.

      • Omg something like this happened to me I JUST started evolving my gift. I see ghost and lost spirits and angels but that one night I was woken up and something was by my closet with red eyes it was scary but God was protecting me I screamed and it disappered. This just means fear is trying to trap your gift don’t get scared just get closer with God. Seek his words and messages and they’ll disappear

    • Rose,

      Please hear my testimony, and may the Elohim of elohim (God of gods) let wisdom see wisdom, and truth see truth.

      Recently I too went through a season of spiritual attacks. It began as warning dreams. Most of them different scenarios someone pursuing me, but I would awake before the capture.

      Then those dreams escalated to bad dreams. These dreams were violent and vile. They depicted humans doing the most abhorrent things. Sometimes I was a mere witness to these atrocities, sometimes I was the victim.

      Then…then the demonic confrontations began happening. At first I could only sense the weight, or force, of their energies. At one point It felt as if I were completely surrounded. It felt at times like they were hovering over my shoulder. I’d get thoughts of someone breathing onto my ear with malicious anticipation. Those interactions escalated to perceiving them with my eyes. I’d awake in the middle of the night (not sleep paralysis, I was truly awake) and see them. Once I saw one that looked like a rotting tree that was covered in parricide vines hovering over me, but I wasn’t afraid and all I did was say “jesus” and it fled. there were also moments of confrontation where my faith in the LORD tarried and faltered.

      It felt as it they were closing in and I had no idea why this, something that had never happened prior, was happening. At the onset I beieved it was being brought on by those around me as I was living with people who appeared to me to be far from the LORD. I was so focused on them because I was walking with the LORD and although I was sensing these spirits and their focus was on me (their focus should have been a clue now that I think about it), they weren’t physically attacking me… until I had that thought.

      then night terrors came upon me like a hurricane. I will NOT explain the happenings of these terrors on such a public platform. All you need to know is that I was so caught up in terror that I began to appear a bit unhinged to the people in my life. I would not sleep. I was fasting like i was fighting for my life because at the time i was convinced that I was. it wasn’t so much the experiences that caused the terror but the fact that now God had allowed these entities to touch me and directly interact with my body.

      and that’s when it hit me.

      Evil spirits are at the mercy of the will of our hallowed father. If you are in a spiritual battle with these things it is because the LORD is allowing it.

      so I reflected and asked myself “why is God allowing them to do this to me?”

      I was so focused on other people being the reason for their presence that didn’t even consider that I could be the reason, and I was.

      I finally remembered that the LORD had instructed me to do something that was emotionally painful, near excruciating, but was necessary to grow closer to him (I had to end a friendship with my closest friend. someone who i considered to be a life line.). He had told me to do this and I had put it off so much that I completely forgot that he had even delivered any sort of instruction.

      I was never in any real danger of burning, but I could feel the flames licking my cheeks.

      AS SOON as I finally ended the friendship the attacks stopped.

      for the first time in weeks I went to sleep and found rest.

      LORD, hanger of the heavens, please open my eyes and allow me to see what you’re showing me with understanding. Though I have sinned against you continually (please forgive me) I thank you for your freely given gifts and forgiveness. May this word add a blessing to your life. In Jesus name, Amen.

      • A. Leigh, gifts do not present themselves in attack. Attacks are from Satan. Only the warning instruction was from Yah-Weh (God). He’s directing you to freedom. And the friendship may be tied into acts of your own or the friend’s that are rendering you available to be attacked. Study God’s will, and don’t partake in the things that are not of Him. Far more than experiencing gifts is happening here. My prayers.

    • I live in a apartment and it’s not as easy to keep them out because the people around us, the sin is so bad In Baltimore, MD. We had to do prayers over our apartment and it gets better for sometime and we’ve anointed the place. Sometimes the area you live makes the spirits are more active. I have had them show up and you can feel them touch you, Get on the bed, pull blankets off. I mean list goes on. Also, the good part is you’ll feel and sense the angelic as well. During this, It can cause a feeling of heaviness and other feelings or senses like smell which stinks in you which will allow you to realize it’s demons, but also when you rebuke and bind these evil spirit be sure to loosen the angels from heaven. You can actually see a battles of good and evil warring. The evil in this world is making the spiritual side so much more lately. Stay in the word and pray, pray over your home. Make sure anything ungodly is removed and anoint it with oil and rebuke and bind the evil spirits and ask Jesus to loosen the angels to help you fight them off. God bless you!

    • Careful! There is repentance that is necessary in these cases. There are some acts that one has to be delivered from to stop access to oneself for such attacks. These aren’t gifts at work but attacks. A change of course in life is necessary. U are more than correct to pray & call on Yah-Shua’s name (Jesus’ real name) in these attacks. I pray for you both. Seek out whose acts has open you all up to such attacks, & separate from them.
