The answer is The Gifts of Revelation

These Gifts are the most exciting because they release- “The Christian Advantage”

One  of the most important Gifts for the days ahead-

The Gift of Discerning of spirits

  • Is one of the least understood spiritual gifts
  • Everyone can and needs to operate powerfully and effectively in this gift to wage spiritual warfare effectively.
  • It is less understood than most of the others gifts  because, as with deliverance and the demonic realm there is limited teaching on it.

Discerning of spirits (definition)

Is the supernatural ability to judge or discern whether the true nature of a thing, is good or evil.    It is the ability to see or know what spirit is operating in a person, place or thing.

Scriptural  Warnings

Matt 13: 22 In the end time many ploys of the enemy will come to deceive. Even God’s people if that were possible

1 Peter 5:8-9 be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him, steadfast in the faith

Eph 6:10-11 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.

3 Categories of  Spirits

  • Human spirit (man)
  • Holy Spirit (God)
  • Evil spirit (enemy)

Important

Recognizing which spirit is involved in a given situation requires moving in the “Gift of the Discerning of spirits” which is essentially being sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

How to recognize spiritual attacks signs of enemy involvement

  • Low self-image (unworthy, a failure, no good – a constant undermining of the self-identity.)
  • Confusion in thinking (sometimes great difficulty in remembering things)
  • Inability to believe (even when the person wants to)
  • Incorrect evaluations- perceiving anger, hostility, in others when it doesn’t really exist – seeing only judgment in the scriptures
  • Nightmares causing fear (often having demonic images)
  • Controlling thoughts (suicidal, homicidal, self-abuse)
  • Fear – panic attacks – phobias
  • Anger –  easily set off emotionally rage
  • Constant guilt – self-condemnation,
  • Depression and despondency (frequently continual despair)
  • Drug, alcohol addictions
  • Eating obsessions – bulimia addictions, anorexia nervosa
  • Compulsive sexual thoughts ( pornography, adultery,  fornication, perversions)
  • Physical attacks — from headaches to cancer/outward manifestations

Door ways for enemy’s involvement

  • Occult involvement (Ouija boards, fortunetelling, horoscopes, palm reading, etc.)
  • Unforgiving spirit- holding on to past grievances.
  • Disobedience to the Lord
  • Dependence on outside sources (drugs, alcohol, etc.)
  • Incorrect relationships ( family disorders, wrong contacts, etc.)
  • Lack of knowledge  (ignorance, not knowing how enemy works/objective)

I asked

  • Do you want Victory in and through your life?
  • Do you want to see those that God has put on your heart set free?
  • Do you want to experience the power of God through your life?
  • Do you want to hear “Well done good and faithful servant”?
  • It’s time to move in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

How many know? Greater is He  (in and through me) than he who is in the world.

Our Ministry

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.“ (Luke 4:18-19)

We looked at:

Our weapons in the Gift of Discerning of spirit

NAME of Jesus

Word of God

BLOOD of Jesus

Prayer in Gift of Discerning of Spirits:

Lord, I take authority over the enemy’s involvement in this (person(s), place, situation)

I take back any permission that was given and close any area of access. I bind the evil spirit(s) (name if Holy Spirit reveals)  and command it to leave and cover (person(s), place, situation) with the blood of Jesus . Holy Spirit come and fill any area that was taken by the enemy.  I declare freedom in Jesus’ name. (anoint with oil when possible)

Over the past weeks I’ve been inundated with people going through spiritual attacks. ( time of the year, harvest time, Halloween)

We have to know how to discern and deal with the enemy in the days ahead

Our weapons in the Gift of Discerning of spirits

2 Cor 10:3-5 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ

Using the Gift of Discerning of spirits in Spiritual Warfare

How to remove Robbery in your Life (others)

(How to defeat the enemy’s attack in your life)

  • BRING THE LORD INTO THE CHALLENGE

Determine if physical, emotional or spiritual battle

Daily struggles , general challenges

Eph 6:12 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.

  • CHECK FOR ANY AREAS OF ENEMY’S ENTRY

(sin, ignorance)

1 John 2:20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

  • ASK THE LORD FOR  DISCERNMENT AND WISDOM

Phil 1:9 And this I pray, that you may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,

 James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.

  • PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Eph 6:10-18

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. 1 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.
