Every person in the world hears voices whether they want to admit it or not. Many of the voices are coming from the enemy which cause people to do things that align with the enemy (fear, control, manipulation, lying, sexual sins, pride, selfishness, anger, etc). Some of the voices we hear in our minds come from the Lord or Holy Spirit. And some voices are our own thoughts. Far too many people who attend church are hearing the enemy’s voice and have no idea. Unfortunately these people make choices that cause them to never have peace, strive over most things and have broken relationships and children who are hurt and want nothing to do with them.
Hearing one thought from the enemy can cause a person to ruin a quiet evening, cause their spouse to cry, and cause a child to feel unloved. People need to discern every thought that comes into their minds to determine if it is from the enemy, the Holy Spirit or the Lord or their own thoughts. Too many people who attend church think every thought they have is from the Lord or their own mind and go with it. They act upon what they are hearing – when in reality it comes straight from a demonic voice and they have no clue.
For instance, let’s say a wife hears “Your husband is lazy, just look at him sit there doing nothing….he is just like your dad….tell him to get off his duff and go mow the lawn now” and the next thing that happens is she opens her mouth and speaks it to her resting husband. Now he gets upset at her because he is tired from working for the last 8 hours and they begin to strive. The enemy started it all by whispering the original thought to her mind. She didn’t discern that the enemy said it and now she and her husband may not talk for days.
A husband hears the enemy tell him, “Your wife is so beautiful…but every other man thinks she is too….and she is thinking about having an affair with one of them.” So then the husband feels that his wife is going to cheat on him so he calls to check up on her every day to make sure she is not with another man. Unfortunately this creates issues with his wife feeling like her husband doesn’t trust her. So then the enemy tells her “Your husband doesn’t trust you. Why don’t you show him and have an affair with the next door neighbor because he doesn’t deserve you!” Then she comes into agreement and has the affair which then devastates her husband and he divorces her and causes their children to be hurt. The enemy then tells the children “Your parents don’t love you and now you cannot be protected…so you need to seek out a girl or boyfriend to protect you.” Then they get into sexual promiscuity and a girl gets pregnant. Then the enemy whispers to the girl “You should just take care of that baby by having an abortion.”
These voices from the enemy happen many times a day to most everyone on the planet, especially to those in the church. When people finally recognize that most of our problems are caused by the enemy and demonic voices whispering to us in our heads then we can finally help them deal with the root issues. A “strongman” demon called Jezebel causes people to hear voices and behave in the following ways:
- Anxious / Fearful
- Sexually impure & selfish
- Desire for power and leadership
- Wants to shut down true Holy Spirit
- More dominant
- They act assured but are very insecure
- Cannot stand to be told no
- Loves to provoke people until they get angry and then blame them
- Enjoys starting arguments
- Constant chatter in the mind
Jezebel gains a legal right to torment a person in their thoughts when they grow up without a father or mother, or with a father and mother who cause emotional, physical or sexual damage to their children. The child could also have been sexually violated by someone else (incest, molested, raped, etc). When that happens the child begins to hear the enemy voices whisper to them in their heads causing them to have fear, and the other items listed above. The child will also receive another strongman demon called the spirit of Leviathan which is in Job 41 and in verse 34 states that it is “king over all the children of pride.” The characteristics of those who have Leviathan are as follows:
- Twists communication in their minds
- Wraps around spine and twists
- Back / neck pain
- Causes drowsiness when reading Bible or Christian books
- Many other diseases / afflictions
When one of these strongman demons gains access to a person they will hear the voices from the enemy which cause them to never have peace, demand things from their spouse, children, co-workers and church members and behave in ways that can be unbearable to be around. Deliverance is the only cure for these people.
Deliverance is nothing more than taking away the legal right from the demonic spirit to occupy your mind at such a close distance. You essentially kick the spirit out of your spiritual house so that he is outside and when he tries to say something to you, you are able to discern his voice and the thoughts you are hearing and not partner with them.
Deliverance consists of forgiving all those who have hurt you. You can have no root of bitterness or else the enemy will have a legal right to torment you to the point that you simply do everything the enemy tells you in your mind. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you why those people who hurt you did it. He will show you that they were also hurt by their parents or others and that allowed the demonic spirits to start whispering to them and caused them to hurt you. Once you understand how it works, you can truly forgive them.
Then you must humble yourself from any pride. Pride gives the Leviathan spirit has legal right to twist our spines, cause pride and confusion, cause insomnia, puts us to sleep when we read the Word or listen to it, cause headaches, and many other pains and diseases.
16 – These six things the Lord hates, Yes seven are an abomination to Him:
17 – A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that she innocent blood,
18 – A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 – A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren
All these things that God hates come from those who allow the spirits of Jezebel and Leviathan in their lives.
Once you forgive all those who hurt you, humble yourself, then you have the authority to command the strongmen Jezebel and Leviathan out of your life and back to hell. Then you will be able to hear the Lord’s voice more clearly and discern whenever the enemy tries to speak to you again. Freedom never feels so good. Christ is coming back for a pure and spotless bride. It is time to get free from the enemy voices and only listen to the Lord and Holy Spirit.
