Watch Out For These Sneaky Spirits

Watch Out For These Sneaky SpiritsA young woman followed the Apostle Paul. She carried a spirit of divination. That spirit was up to no good. Here is the testimony.

“And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which show unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers.” (Acts 16:16-19)

The divination spirit tried to infiltrate the ministry of the Apostle Paul. These spirits will try to penetrate your life too. If not you then someone close to you. Notice this young lady was a soothsayer. A soothsayer is a prophetic person that uses a familiar spirit to prophesy. She also followed Paul exhorting the people to listen to his message declaring these “show us the way of salvation.” Even though her exhortation was correct something grieved Paul in his spirit. Her spiritual operations were not by the same Holy Ghost that was in Paul.

This is where spiritual discernment comes into play. Every believer must know people by the spirit. This requires spiritual discernment. This means making a judgment. In other words, every believer must make a spiritual judgment. Paul did. Paul being grieved in his spirit turned and spoke to the spirit within the girl to come out in Jesus's name.

Spiritual warfare is a lifestyle. It’s not something you do but a way you live. Spiritual battles are fought in the spirit. You do it with battling prayers and the Word of God. Some things can be taught in the classroom but spiritual warfare is learned on the battlefield. I wish it were not so but every experienced warrior knows that God equips them with His Word and Holy Ghost but they have to do the fighting. When you fight you win. There are no spoils without the battle.
