THIS  MONTH'S  EDITORIAL
Bishop Austin D. Emeson shares his thoughts concerning
FAMILIAR SPIRITS
 
As the Editor in Chief of the Oasis News Publication, I have the opportunity to publish articles that I believe is informative and  news worthy of those who read this publication.  I am therefore sharing this ARTICLE written by Bishop Austin Emeson, a young man who is quickly raising up to be one of God's Generals and an outstanding leader in the Capital City of Abuja, West Africa in Nigeria.
 
This is an excellent article to use as a Bible Study for Christian Education.

 DEALING WITH FAMILIAR SPIRITS

 

 

A familiar spirit is a spirit that is familiar with a person, a place or a thing. These spirits have become accustomed to the lifestyles, moods and behavioral patterns of an individual life making them impossible to detect unless the Holy Spirit

is revealing. Those who are controlled by familiar spirit are not able to discern if these patterns are part of their lifestyles or are they motivated by these spirits.

 

I. FAMILIAR SPIRITS  have become  FAMILIAR WITH A PERSON’S LIFESTYLE, moods and behavioral patterns.

 

-They have learned to work around the person’s character.

-They have become accustomed to his ways and behavioral patterns.

- They have taken time to study your weaknesses and strengths.

-They have infiltrated your emotional and thought patterns.

-They know how you will react or act in various situations.

-They know your comfort zones as well as explosive zones.

 

II. FAMILIAR SPIRITS open door for OTHER SPIRITS to INVADE YOUR LIFE.

 

-They are “informers” of areas that are “open to sin”.

-They know the entrance points of your heart and life.

-They know your past history and intimidate future advancement.

-They know how to afflict our weakness and keep us sorrowful.

-They control us by the past weakness and failure.

 

III. FAMILIAR SPIRITS are RESIDENTIAL SPIRITS.

 

- They stay with the individual or family.

-They sometimes carry forward from past generations.

-They are permitted by other spirits to move with you to different places or cities.

-They can choose not to follow you but stay in your home.

-They can only influence the person they have taken position to reside with.

- Spirits familiar with you may not be familiar with me.

 

IV. FAMILIAR SPIRITS REFUSE US TO CHANGE.

 

-They make us resent change and fear of losing our comfort.

-They depress us with the cost of allowing change until it becomes distasteful in our sight  and unwarranted.

-They cushion our comfort zones with well-padded thought patterns and humanistic reasoning.

- They stir our emotions until we are upset with change and we feel change is a nuisance and it is inconvenient.

 

V. FAMILIAR SPIRITS thrive in UNREPENTANT LIVES.

 

-They can dominate the CYCLE OF CONTINUAL DEFEAT.

-They open doors to religious spirits who often cause us to put more value on rituals, religious ways instead of RELATIONSHIP with JESUS.

- They afflict us with the sense of guilt and condemnation by tormenting us with sin- conscious.

 

VI. FAMILIAR SPIRITS are responsible to TRANSFER a problem, a sickness or a curse from one generation to another.

 

-Spirits do not die and thus they are capable to carry on into many generations.

-They also work to establish themselves through natural genes of the family lineage.

-The similarity of personality and character exposes the new generation to the old sins.

- These spirits attack also on the same areas of temptation on that family.

 

VII. FAMILIAR SPIRITS CONTROL REGULAR NEGATIVE EMOTIONAL CYCLES.

 

-They control outbursts of anger, depression, swings of moods, bitterness, etc.

- They engineer circumstances in your life to allow the continual manifestation of these cycles.

-They control the thought patterns that govern these areas so that we see no reason to change.

- These areas are seen as “weapons” we can use for our benefit instead of calling it as  “SIN”.

 

HOW TO BE SET FREE?

 

1. RECOGNISE and LOCATE AREAS OF REGULAR CYCLE OF DEFEAT.

 

2. AVOID GIVING OPPORTUNITIES for CIRCUMSTANCES that will allow these areas to manifest.

 

3. CHANGE LIFESTYLE and thus WRONG HABITS.

 

4. CONTROLLING and DISCIPLINING wrong emotional expressions.

 

5. CHOOSE AN OPPOSITE LIFESTYLE than that which is giving room to these negative expression. In short, live a lifestyle that will make the familiar spirit to be so unfamiliar with you. Life of Christ must be lived in the lifestyle of son-ship.

 

Remain Blessed in Jesus name.

From,

Yours in His Service ,
