2CO 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness
and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and
Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?
I want to talk to
all of you who consider yourself to be a Christian and who are also called to help people to get free from evil spirits. I
just want to caution you that in your research and work for God to be very careful about not being pulled too far into darkness
as you help others get free of it. Like the saying goes, "we are what we eat", and when we feed on more darkness than light
we can become defiled and full of more darkness than the light.
Things like watching
paranormal shows, reading haunting type study books, or being exposed to the latest occult themed movies and video games can
all act as a beacon for demons and give them permission to come into our homes and harass us, (or worse). Many spiritual infestations
have started with someone becoming a little too curious about the spirit-realm and before you know it after viewing all the
ghost shows, they actually get one. What a coincidence.
DT 18:10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter
in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a
medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.
A Christian has
no business being part of a secular ghost-hunting team, or joining in on a sťance' or all night vigil, but yet this is what
takes place on many so called ghost-hunting investigations. God doesn't want us trying to contact the dead or prove there
is an afterlife, He wants us to tell people that there is life through the Light of His son Jesus Christ. If God calls you
to fight the darkness He will not expect you to join the darkness in order to do it.
Now if you do end
up with a spiritual infestation or God calls you to help someone with one then take some time to really pray first and ask
God how it should be handled. Playing with spirits on television may seem like fun but it’s totally different if you
have to live in a home with one. This is not something to take lightly or try to beat on your own. Get on the phone and call
a Spirit-filled church in your area or The 700 Club 24 hours a day toll free at 1 (800) 759-0700 for support.
If you are called
to battle spiritual darkness, then your weapons will always be God's light and the spiritual armor that it talks about in
Ephesians 6 below. The only thing that drives demons away is the authority and light of Jesus Christ, so we must fill ourselves
up on Him every day in order to be able to stay strong. So if you are spiritually curious then satisfy that curiosity with
reading the bible, praying to God, worshiping Jesus, and walking in His Light. Jesus satisfies.
EPH 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against
flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual
forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you
may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth
buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness
that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of
God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always
keep on praying for all the saints.
