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.

of allowing change until it becomes distasteful in our sight and
-They cushion our comfort zones
with well-padded thought patterns and humanistic reasoning.

in UNREPENTANT LIVES.

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

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.

and character exposes the new generation to the old sins.

on the same areas of temptation on that family.

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.

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
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.
