  • my description of demons is persons without bodies it's very important to
  • realize you're dealing with a person in the early years of my ministry I
  • suffered from intense depression that would come over me and rest upon me like
  • a dark cloud and shut me in keep me from communicating and I struggled with it I
  • did everything I pray that fast it I reckoned myself day and I knew the
  • scriptures and the more I prayed and fasted the worse had got and I had no
  • remedy and one day I was reading Isaiah chapter 60 61 and it said in place of
  • the spirit of heaviness the garment of pray and the Holy Spirit spoke to me and
  • said that's your problem a spirit of heaviness of depression and when I knew
  • that I was dealing with a person and not myself you see I've been blaming myself
  • for all of this when I discovered it was another person I was eighty percent of
  • the way to victory and actually I understood by revelation that it was a
  • familiar spirit that is a spirit that follows a family up and I realized the
  • same spirit had affected my father for many years so all I needed was one on
  • the scripture let me share it with you Joelle 232 it shall come to pass that
  • whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be delivered I called on the name
  • of Jesus and I was delivered this thing it was like a heavenly vacuum cleaner
  • came down over my shoulders and just sucked this thing out and I had
  • struggled with it for years until I recognized it was not myself it was
  • another person seeking to afflict me and I want you to understand when you once
  • realize you're dealing with a person who is not yourself
  • you're about 80% of the way to deliverance
  • now as I understand it and I let me say I've been dealing with demons for more
  • than 30 years I first got involved in 1963 some people said well brother
  • Prince will soon give it up he'll change his doctrine I have to say at the age of
  • 80 I haven't given it up and I haven't changed my doctrine I tell you one
  • reason it's scriptural and number two it works
  • I wonder of you three objectives that demons him number one to torment and
  • torture they are the torturous number two to keep you from knowing Christ as
  • Savior and number three if you come to know Christ as Savior then to keep you
  • from serving him effectively now we have to distinguish between two things what's
  • called the flesh and demons or evil spirits the flesh is the old carnal
  • nature that every one of us had inherited from Adam
  • all of us are descendants from Adam and Adam did not beget any children until he
  • was a rebel and every descendant of Adam has the nature of a rebel in him that's
  • the old man now the other thing that we deal with is evil spirits and it's
  • important to know what you're dealing with because the remedies are completely
  • different see I was dealing with the spirit of
  • heaviness and I was trying to deal with it as if it were the flesh I was trying
  • to crucify it because that's the remedy for the flesh but you can't crucify a
  • demon nor can you cast out the flesh you have to know what you're dealing with a
  • man came to me once and he said brother Prince I want you to count this demon
  • out of me I said what's your problem and he began to tell tell me his difficulty
  • in relating to his one I said I don't think I can cross that out it's not a
  • demon it's your flesh and in nature you have to crucify it so we need to know am
  • i dealing with my flesh or am i dealing with a demon
  • and I will give you a little list of characteristic activities of demons
  • number one they entice there's not a single person here above the age of six
  • who has not at some time being enticed to do evil
  • denne often it comes in words when you see that nice gold pencil there pick it
  • up nobody'll know if you dropped your pencil they would do it to you anything
  • that comes to you in words comes from a person so you know that enticement comes
  • from a person a demon number two they harass or I think when say in English
  • Haris I'm bilingual and I have to remember which language I'm speaking and
  • you know harass so Harris that's what they do I have this little example in my
  • mind it's just not directly based on any single experience there's this
  • businessman he's had a terrible day in the office everything went wrong the air
  • conditioning failed his secretary didn't timed his letters right and then he got
  • in the car to go home and he got in a jam in the motorway and he spent an hour
  • sitting in his car I mean it's all the fumes and finally when he gets home his
  • wife hasn't got supper ready and the children are running around screaming
  • and at that moment as they say in America he blows his stack he loses
  • control he begins to shout and scream and that demon of anger that has been
  • following him around all day slips in and after that he's a slightly different
  • person from after that at times something comes over him and he wounds
  • the people he loves most his wife and children and his wife looks at him from
  • time to time and sees something in his eyes she never saw before and then he's
  • repentant and penitent and he says I'm sorry I don't know what made me do it
  • what we do know what made him do it was the demon of anger see it had harassed
  • him or harassed him and in the moment of weakness slipped in
  • then demons torment they are the tormentors they torment spiritually with
  • the suggestion God doesn't love you you're not really saved that's a common
  • form of torment they torment emotionally with fear they torment physically with
  • all sorts of horrible things like arthritis and so on they are the
  • tormentas and Jesus saying listen if you don't forgive your fellow believer God
  • will deliver you to the toe mentis who are they the demons a lot of Christians
  • I in the hands of demons because they've refused to forgive some other person
  • then demons compel they make us do things we don't really want to do that
  • some of the things they compel you to do a really comical I had a letter after
  • the deliverance service from a woman aged 25 and she said for the first week
  • in my life that I can remember I haven't been biting my nails what made her bite
  • her nails a demon can you believe that I know it's true and then demons and slave
  • they make you slaves you see people can sin and stop sin if
  • they decide well since a man may get drunk and then to say I want get drunk
  • and he doesn't drink anymore he's sinned but he's not enslaved but an alcoholic
  • is a man who can't stop drinking he is in slave now if you put compel and in
  • slave together you get the word addiction and in my personal opinion
  • almost every addiction of any kind is demonic and there are a lot of
  • respectable addictions some very unrespectable some respectable but if
  • you are addicted you have a problem and your problem I think in 90% of the cases
  • is a demon demons defile they make us feel dirty
  • and unclean they project evil impure images and thoughts and words into our
  • minds and I've talked with people at various times who said just when I'm
  • getting closest to the Lord when I really want to worship Him these
  • horrible things come into my mind and I said you can be sure it's a demon
  • anything that wants to keep you from worshiping God is a demon then demons
  • deceive they are behind all forms of religious deception Paul said in first
  • Timothy chapter 4 and the last times some will depart from the faith
  • that's Christians giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of
  • demons and believe me my dear brothers and sisters there are a lot of different
  • deceiving spirits with doctrines that are demonic and they're very near to all
  • of us finally demons make people weak or sick or tired or kill them I dealt with
  • a woman once this is a remarkable situation 72 different demons came out
  • up she was a respectable woman she was a registered nurse she was charismatic
  • Pentecostal but she had 72 demons I didn't count them but there was a woman
  • making little note of the names and in the middle of this it lasted five hours
  • she said oh I'm so tired I can't go on I can't take any more and I thought well
  • poor woman she really has time and then the launch would meet that's not the
  • woman that's the demon I said you spirit of tiredness come out
  • of this woman and it said not the woman it said that's right she's always tired
  • she's tired when she gets up she's time when she's going to bed she's too tired
  • to read the Bible to time to pray when that spirit returned this came out of
  • her she was no longer tired we finished the deliverance demons make you go to
  • sleep there's a spirit of slumbers referred to
  • both in the old and the new testament have you ever considered that you can
  • sit up till 2:00 a.m. watching something that you probably shouldn't be watching
  • on the television but if you decide to read your Bible you go to sleep in 10
  • minutes is that right that's not natural there's something there that doesn't
  • mind you're watching television in fact probably wants you to watch it but does
  • mind you're reading the Bible or praying all right those are some activities of
  • demons now the main areas in which they operate I have to give this in a very
  • condensed form you understand I'm writing a book about it please pray for
  • me it's not an easy book to write I discovered about 10 different kinds of
  • spirits or demons mentioned in the Old Testament and about 20 in the new that's
  • 30 but that's just a little sampling there are hundreds of different kinds of
  • demons the main area that they affect I believe is mo emotions and attitudes and
  • behind every negative emotion and attitude there is a corresponding demon
  • that doesn't mean you've got the demon but the means of the demons they're
  • trying to get you for instance you can get angry and it's not a demon it's just
  • you it's your flesh but if you get angry and can't control yourself and get angry
  • when you don't want to get angry that's a demon let me give you a list of some
  • of the communist names that I've dealt with and another thing about demons is
  • they operate in gangs when one gets in it opens the door for the next and if
  • you find certain demons you can always look for their friends let's take one
  • pride rebellion rebellion almost always follows Prime and then which
  • craft or the account because first Samuel 15 verse 23 says rebellion is as
  • the sin of which go wherever you found rebellion look for which from the great
  • historical example of this is the young people of the United States in the 1960s
  • almost a whole generation went into rebellion and almost every one of them
  • ended in the account because rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft no I thank
  • God I saw scores of them gloriously saved and delivered but I learned the
  • lesson then one of the communist spirits as the spirit of fear Paul says God has
  • not given us a spirit of fear so it doesn't come from God but fear is
  • something that we easily all of us give way to and it's followed by other things
  • like rejection one of the commonest emotional problems in the church and in
  • the world today is rejection it's a sense of feeling unworthy unwanted
  • nobody really loves me I'm on the outside looking in and I would say in my
  • observation at least twenty percent of professing Christians today that I've
  • met need deliverance from rejection it's really due to the breakup of the family
  • because the thing that gives a child the sense of security is the love and the
  • care of a father and where that is missing that's something that cries out
  • I don't know who I am I don't feel secure I don't know that
  • people really love me I want to tell you one thing Jesus really loves you but the
  • devil will do his best to convince you it's true of everybody else but not you
