Spirit of DEMONS


The LORD JESUS prophesied:

Mark 13:22

King James Version

22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, 

and shall shew signs and wonders, 

to seduce, 

if it were possible, 

even the elect.

What ails humanity?

Why do we do what we do?

Why are there wars, crime, greed, vanity, envy?

Surely, we have the spirit of demons in us.

It is spiritual warfare, after all.

We battle with the "unseen".

The unseen uses the "seen" -- humans.

These verses tell us how the world is:

2 Timothy 3:1-7

King James Version

3 This know also, 

that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, 

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, 

false accusers, incontinent, fierce, 

despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, 

lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: 

from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.

If we don't believe there are demons, or spirit of demons influencing us, let Scripture tell us:

Leviticus 19:31

King James Version

31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, 

neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: 

I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 20:6-7

King James Version

6 And the soul that turneth 

after such as have familiar spirits, 

and after wizards, 

to go a whoring after them, 

I will even set my face against that soul, 

and will cut him off from among his people.

7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, 

and be ye holy: 

for I am the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 18:9-14

King James Version

9 When thou art come into the land 

which the Lord thy God giveth thee, 

thou shalt not learn to do 

after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one 

that maketh his son or his daughter 

to pass through the fire, 

or that useth divination, 

or an observer of times, 

or an enchanter, 

or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, 

or a consulter with familiar spirits, 

or a wizard, 

or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things 

are an abomination unto the Lord: 

and because of these abominations 

the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

14 For these nations, 

which thou shalt possess,

hearkened unto observers of times, 

and unto diviners: 

but as for thee, 

the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

Ezekiel 13:17-18

King James Version

17 Likewise, thou son of man, 

set thy face against the daughters of thy people, 

which prophesy out of their own heart; 

and prophesy thou against them,

18 And say, 

Thus saith the Lord God; 

Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, 

and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature 

to hunt souls! 

Will ye hunt the souls of my people, 

and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?

Matthew 8:28-34

King James Version

28 And when he was come to the other side 

into the country of the Gergesenes, 

there met him two possessed with devils, 

coming out of the tombs, 

exceeding fierce, 

so that no man might pass by that way.

29 And, behold, 

they cried out, saying, 

What have we to do with thee, Jesus, 

thou Son of God? 

art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

30 And there was a good way off from them 

an herd of many swine feeding.

31 So the devils besought him, saying, 

If thou cast us out, 

suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

32 And he said unto them, 


And when they were come out, 

they went into the herd of swine: 

and, behold, 

the whole herd of swine ran violently down 

a steep place into the sea, 

and perished in the waters.

33 And they that kept them fled, 

and went their ways into the city, 

and told every thing, 

and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.

34 And, behold, 

the whole city came out to meet Jesus: 

and when they saw him, 

they besought him that he would depart 

out of their coasts.

Matthew 12:43-45

King James Version

43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man,

he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, 

and findeth none.

44 Then he saith, 

I will return into my house from whence I came out; 

and when he is come, 

he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

45 Then goeth he, 

and taketh with himself seven other spirits 

more wicked than himself, 

and they enter in and dwell there: 

and the last state of that man is worse than the first. 

Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Matthew 16:21-23

King James Version

21 From that time forth began Jesus 

to shew unto his disciples, 

how that he must go unto Jerusalem, 

and suffer many things 

of the elders and chief priests and scribes, 

and be killed, 

and be raised again the third day.

22 Then Peter took him, 

and began to rebuke him, saying, 

Be it far from thee, Lord: 

this shall not be unto thee.

23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, 

Get thee behind me, Satan: 

thou art an offence unto me: 

for thou savourest not the things that be of God, 

but those that be of men.

Luke 13:11-13

King James Version

11 And, behold, there was a woman 

which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years,

and was bowed together, 

and could in no wise lift up herself.

12 And when Jesus saw her, 

he called her to him, and said unto her, 


thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

13 And he laid his hands on her: 

and immediately she was made straight, 

and glorified God.

John 5:1-15

King James Version

5 After this there was a feast of the Jews; 

and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, 

which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, 

having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, 

of blind, halt, withered, 

waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, 

and troubled the water: 

whosoever then first 

after the troubling of the water stepped in 

was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

5 And a certain man was there, 

which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lie, 

and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, 

he saith unto him, 

Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, 

Sir, I have no man, 

when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: 

but while I am coming, 

another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, 


take up thy bed, 

and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, 

and took up his bed, 

and walked: 

and on the same day was the sabbath.

10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, 

It is the sabbath day: 

it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

11 He answered them, 

He that made me whole, 

the same said unto me, 

Take up thy bed, and walk.

12 Then asked they him, 

What man is that which said unto thee, 

Take up thy bed, and walk?

13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: 

for Jesus had conveyed himself away,

 a multitude being in that place.

14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple,

 and said unto him, 


thou art made whole: 

sin no more, 

lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15 The man departed, 

and told the Jews that it was Jesus, 

which had made him whole.

John 8:44-45

King James Version

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do. 

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him. 

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, 

ye believe me not.

John 10:10

King James Version

10 The thief cometh not, 

but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: 

I am come that they might have life, 

and that they might have it more abundantly.

Acts 8:5-8

King James Version

5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, 

and preached Christ unto them.

6 And the people with one accord 

gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, 

hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.

7 For unclean spirits,

crying with loud voice, 

came out of many that were possessed with them: 

and many taken with palsies, 

and that were lame, 

were healed.

8 And there was great joy in that city.

Acts 8:9-13

King James Version

9 But there was a certain man, 

called Simon, 

which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, 

and bewitched the people of Samaria, 

giving out that himself was some great one:

10 To whom they all gave heed, 

from the least to the greatest, saying, 

This man is the great power of God.

11 And to him they had regard, 

because that of long time 

he had bewitched them with sorceries.

12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things 

concerning the kingdom of God, 

and the name of Jesus Christ, 

they were baptized, 

both men and women.

13 Then Simon himself believed also: 

and when he was baptized, 

he continued with Philip, 

and wondered, 

beholding the miracles and signs 

which were done.

Acts 19:11-20

King James Version

11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:

12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick 

handkerchiefs or aprons, 

and the diseases departed from them, 

and the evil spirits went out of them.

13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, 


took upon them to call over them 

which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, 


We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, 

a Jew, 

and chief of the priests, which did so.

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, 

Jesus I know, 

and Paul I know; 

but who are ye?

16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was 

leaped on them, 

and overcame them, 

and prevailed against them, 

so that they fled out of that house 

naked and wounded.

17 And this was known to all 

the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus;

and fear fell on them all, 

and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.

18 And many that believed came, 

and confessed, 

and shewed their deeds.

19 Many of them also which used curious arts 

brought their books together, 

and burned them before all men: 

and they counted the price of them, 

and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

King James Version

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: 

for what fellowship hath righteousness 

with unrighteousness? 

and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial?

 or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 

for ye are the temple of the living God; 

as God hath said, 

I will dwell in them, 

and walk in them; 

and I will be their God,

and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, 

and be ye separate, saith the Lord, 

and touch not the unclean thing; 

and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, 

and ye shall be my sons and daughters, 

saith the Lord Almighty.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

King James Version

13 For such are false apostles, 

deceitful workers, 

transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14 And no marvel; 

for Satan himself is transformed 

into an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers 

also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; 

whose end shall be according to their works.

Ephesians 2:1-3

King James Version

2 And you hath he quickened, 

who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2 Wherein in time past ye walked 

according to the course of this world, 

according to the prince of the power of the air, 

the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation 

in times past in the lusts of our flesh, 

fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; 

and were by nature the children of wrath, 

even as others.

Ephesians 5:1-8

King James Version

5 Be ye therefore followers of God, 

as dear children;

2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, 

and hath given himself for us an offering

 and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

3 But fornication, 

and all uncleanness, 

or covetousness, 

let it not be once named among you, 

as becometh saints;

4 Neither filthiness, 

nor foolish talking, 

nor jesting, 

which are not convenient: 

but rather giving of thanks.

5 For this ye know, 

that no whoremonger, 

nor unclean person, 

nor covetous man, who is an idolater, 

hath any inheritance 

in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: 

for because of these things cometh the wrath of God 

upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, 

but now are ye light in the Lord: 

walk as children of light:

2 Thessalonians 2:6-12

King James Version

6 And now ye know what withholdeth 

that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: 

only he who now letteth will let, 

until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, 

whom the Lord shall consume 

with the spirit of his mouth, 

and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, 

whose coming is after the working of Satan 

with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness 

in them that perish; 

because they received not the love of the truth, 

that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, 

that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned 

who believed not the truth, 

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

1 Timothy 4:1-3

King James Version

4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, 

that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, 

giving heed to seducing spirits, 

and doctrines of devils;

2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; 

having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

3 Forbidding to marry, 

and commanding to abstain from meats, 

which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving 

of them which believe and know the truth.

1 Peter 5:8-9

King James Version

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, 

walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, 

knowing that the same afflictions 

are accomplished in your brethren 

that are in the world.

1 John 4:1-6

King James Version

4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, 

but try the spirits whether they are of God: 

because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: 

Every spirit that confesseth 

that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 And every spirit that confesseth not 

that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: 

and this is that spirit of antichrist, 

whereof ye have heard that it should come; 

and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, 

and have overcome them: 

because greater is he that is in you, 

than he that is in the world.

5 They are of the world: 

therefore speak they of the world, 

and the world heareth them.

6 We are of God: 

he that knoweth God heareth us; 

he that is not of God heareth not us. 

Hereby know we the spirit of truth, 

and the spirit of error.

Revelation 16:12-14

King James Version

12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial 

upon the great river Euphrates; 

and the water thereof was dried up, 

that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs 

come out of the mouth of the dragon, 

and out of the mouth of the beast, 

and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, 

working miracles, 

which go forth unto the kings of the earth 

and of the whole world, 

to gather them to the battle 

of that great day of God Almighty.

Revelation 18:1-5

King James Version

18 And after these things 

I saw another angel come down from heaven, 

having great power; 

and the earth was lightened with his glory.

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, 


Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, 

and is become the habitation of devils, 

and the hold of every foul spirit, 

and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 For all nations have drunk 

of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, 

and the kings of the earth 

have committed fornication with her, 

and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich 

through the abundance of her delicacies.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, 


Come out of her, my people, 

that ye be not partakers of her sins, 

and that ye receive not of her plagues.

5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, 

and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Revelation 22:14-15

King James Version

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, 

that they may have right to the tree of life, 

and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, 

and sorcerers, 

and whoremongers, 

and murderers, 

and idolaters, 

and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
