Lying Spirits Love To Lie
By Phil Scovell
When I pray with people, I never start out by thinking, "I
bet there is demonic influence in this person's life and that's
why they are hurting." No, that isn't where I start. I simply
assume the person is wounded some where, and we need to pray and
find out where, so Jesus can heal that place and the pain will be
gone. Do demons show up? Some times but only about half the
time if even that much. Then why is this article about demons?
If you plan on praying with people, you better know what to do if
there is a demonic manifestation. If you don't, you are going to
be uncomfortable and that's putting it mildly. So let me tell
you about a recent experience.
I was praying with a woman who has had, over the decades, a
great deal of demonic activity in her life. Not because she
wanted it, but due to trauma in the very early days of her
childhood. Additionally, her father, and grandfather, were
involved in a cult which is well known for its involvements with
the demonics. Of course, this developed and expanded as she aged
because they already had a stronghold upon which to operate. A
stronghold is the equivalence of a base of operation to which the
enemy can retreat to avoid detection. This is often a lie but
can also be disguised through a myriad of psycho dynamical
characteristics. In this lady's case, I am not speaking of one
or two demons, I am speaking of hundreds. So how does a
Christian counselor or therapist, which I am not, deal with these
intrusions? Are they real or is the person just mentally ill and
in need of professional assistance? Can't psychotropic
medications fixed the problem?
In this case, the demons, near the end of one of our recent
prayer times, began to manifest. They did so by speaking through
the lady's voice. This is not always the case, that is,
sometimes they only speak into a person's thoughts. It depends,
in my opinion, upon the level of access they have into a person's
life. I believe there is external influence, internal influence,
and protected. By this I mean, outside the mind, in the mind as
a foothold, and in the mind due to the nature of the embedded lie
which provides them with a stronghold in which to hide behind.
This is my own interpretation and I didn't get this out of any
book so I have no idea what others think along these lines.
As they began to manifest, speaking through her voice, I
commanded their silence through the name of the True Lord Jesus
Christ. Throughout the rest of this article, keep that in mind.
Otherwise, I would have to repeat myself a hundred times, that
is, in the name of the True Lord Jesus Christ.
I never address the demonic realm without the covering of
the name of the True Christ. Why call Him the True Lord Jesus
Christ? Some demons, in order to deceive, attempt to fool us by
calling themselves jesus. So you want to make sure you are using
the only True name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I can hear someone
asking, "Isn't that sort of weird?" No, I have a Spanish friend
by the name of Jesus and that is Jesus with an H sound instead of
a J sound as in (Hey sues). Jesus is a very common name among
the Spanish. You don't think the demonic realm might try and
fool us in order to misguide us from the truth of why they are
As the demons began to manifest through this woman, I
isolated their activity by requesting that the True Lord Jesus
Christ pick the demon who would obey His Words to be the
spokesman of the group. Demons are like mice and cockroaches;
when you see one, there's lots more. If you don't allow the Lord
Jesus to pick the spokesman for the group, you will end up
talking to demons all day long. This is often the mistake made
by those called to the deliverance ministry.
Finally, as I asked the True Lord Jesus Christ to do the
work that I could not, and cannot, do, the demon spoke. The goal
is to attempt to determine why the demons think, the key word is
think, they have the right to function in that person's life. If
you invoke the name of the True Lord Jesus Christ, and if you
know your authority as a Believer in His name, they will answer
and they have to answer. In this case, the spokesman admitted
they had no right to stay in her life. They were, therefore,
present just to torment her. I told them they had to go. They
refused. Since they had no right to remain, that is, no lie upon
which to stay, they had to go. I turned them over to the Chief
Shepherd, the True Lord jesus Christ, and commanded them to go.
They left. Curiously, They were quickly replaced by another
These demons, by the way, were associated with this woman
through her homosexual brother. Thus they were connected to this
woman because of an evil soul tie or an unholy covenant. If you
are unfamiliar with an evil soul tie, please read some of my
other articles on the subject.
Again, I learned this second group of demons had no legal
right to be in the woman's life and the spokesman admitted it was
true. As I began to command them to leave, turning them over to
the Lord, they began assaulting the woman. She reported they
were trying to hold her down and trying to pin her to the floor.
You would have to know the history of this woman to understand
the significance of this action but regardless, I commanded them
to stop what they were doing and all demonic activity instantly
stopped. I turned him, and all those under his authority, over
to the chief Shepherd, the True Lord Jesus Christ. They left,
only to be quickly replaced with another group of demons. Well,
shoot. This was going to take all day and I wasn't interested in
spending all day consuming time talking to demons. By the way,
this wasn't happening because of anything the woman was doing.
It was the Lord teaching me something I needed to learn.
I stopped, by commanding them to cease speaking, and spoke
to the woman. She was familiar with the prayer which breaks
unholy covenants. We began praying that prayer together but the
demons jumped into the prayer and tried screwing everything up.
This wasn't all that uncommon and in fact, I had anticipated it.
I wanted to see what level of authority they thought they had in
her life. Their interference gave me more of the information I
needed. She reported they were trying now to force her head into
a bucket of filthy water. I commanded them to stop and they did.
I went back to asking the demonic spokesman of each group
what right they had to be there. I figured we would eventually
find the real leader of the group because demons love playing
hide and seek. It wouldn't be uncommon at all for the leader of
the group to be hiding behind other demons under his authority.
Unfortunately, every spokesman confessed they had no legal right
to remain but they also announced they weren't leaving and I
could not make them go. Well, of course, I knew that wasn't true
and they knew that wasn't true but being demons, they lie a lot.
In fact, it is about all they do. Besides, it wasn't the first
time a demon told me I couldn't make them leave so that didn't
bother me. I just figured I would have to keep hunting around
until the true leader showed up but such wasn't necessary.
Once, I was told that they were only their to remind her of
her brother. This confirmed, in my mind, that they were there
only as a spiritual contact to her brother and I knew how that
contact could be broken. Another time, one of them confessed
that they could not be made to leave because she couldn't see
them. I laughed out loud at that one. Honestly, some demon say
the dumbest things.
Speaking to one demon, he said, when I told them to leave
and to go to Jesus, they said, we will strangle her. I said,
"Good. Come on. Do it. I want you to try and strangle her.
Call all your buddies. Get them all to come. I want all of you
to come together and with all your might, try and strangle her."
First, I knew this was impossible but they didn't.
Secondly, Don't forget that demons are deceived creatures,
too. They just don't know it. This gives you the edge. I
thought my idea, which was actually the leading of the Holy
Spirit, might bring the leader of the group into the open.
Thirdly, the moment I spoke these words, I saw the unclean
spirits in my spirit. They all looked very small, as if they
were flies or ants, crawling around on her neck and I felt the
awareness of the Holy Spirit that they were harmless to her
physical well being.
As they all came together to strangle her, she began
laughing. I've heard demons laugh through people before so it
didn't bother me but that's not what was happening. She finally
said, "They are tickling my neck. They are all over my neck and
shoulders and it tickles." I waited until I felt the time was
right and then I commanded them all to stop what they were doing.
They immediately quit their activities. Then I asked the lady,
with whom I was praying, if she wanted to pray to get rid of them
or if she preferred I pray. She knew what to pray so she said
she wanted to pray. Less than a minute later, they were all
gone. That is, they were all gone but a few. These, she
reported, could not move or speak but were as if they were
frozen. The Holy Spirit told me what these demons were and how
to get rid of them. We then prayed the unholy covenant prayer to
break the bondage with her brother, she repeating the words after
me, and the instant she said amen, she reported they were all
gone and I didn't even have to ask her about it.
About this time, someone is wanting to know why this all
happened and to a Christian, no less. One reason was for my
benefit. I had never been faced with this situation before.
That is, I had not faced hundreds of demons, to my knowledge, in
one prayer session before. The Holy Spirit impressed me that
there were indeed hundreds of them involved in this situation.
So it was a learning experience for me.
Secondly, this woman hated her brother. He had physically
abused her and emotionally and mentally abused her all her life
and especially when they were children. He had control over her
in ways I don't even understand but some of these ways were
spiritually evil. The Lord wanted to heal her of this. How do I
know? Afterward, she told me that a few days before, the Lord
had impressed upon her to eventually make contact with her
brother. She didn't want to see her brother and for obvious
reason; he stirred up tons of pain inside of her. They haven't
been talking for some time and not by phone or in person. She
allowed him to email her but only about family business. Now,
the Creator of the universe, was telling her that He wanted her
to get together with Him and she felt overloaded. So what did
Jesus do? He got rid of the demons causing the fear and healed
her of tremendous pain. Try and tell me that Jesus doesn't know
what He is doing.
Is there more healing? Perhaps. This lady believes there
is yet other places she needs to go, concerning her brother, for
healing. Many of the demons associated with her pain are now
gone so it will be easier to go to those places for healing.
Now what about you. Are you feeling pain? Are you wounded?
Are there times when you are just thinking about the past that
you say, "Boy, I will never forget when that person..." and you
fill in the blank. That happened to me just recently concerning
one of my own sisters. I am praying the Lord will reveal the
truth about that woundedness. If I can't locate it on my own, I
will meet with my prayer partner and we will agree in prayer
until we find it so I can be healed.
Do you want to walk free? Aren't you growing weary of
carrying all this woundedness and pain by yourself? Isn't it
about time you walk a maintenance free victory in your
relationship with the Lord with no more guilt or fear, or pain,
or shame, or condemnation? Call me and let's pray. It won't
take one prayer session, most likely, but it won't cost you
anything and you can walk in total freedom. I'll teach you how
to practice this form of intercessory prayer, too. Then liberty
will be your theme throughout the rest of your life as Jesus
lives in you as your only Lord and Master.
