Bible and the Evil Spirits

Jesus taught His disciples how to cast out devils. Today we create denominations and fear dealing with devils. Yet many are possessed and grossly influenced by demons. Learn what demon spirits are out there circulating throughout the earth to destroy humanity.

I know prior to receiving Jesus Christ as my personal Savior I struggled with several gross sins and felt compelled beyond my ability to resist. Now knowing what I do, I feel that demon spirits were on assignment against me to both assault and destroy my life (John 10:10). As any alcoholic, drug addict, or sex addict can tell you, such compulsions can be overwhelming and difficult to resist in one’s own strength. Thanks be to God for His Holy Spirit that empowers us against all demonic spirits. (Matt.12:28)

Here are the various evil spirits mentioned in the Bible.

1.familiar spirit (Leviticus 20:27; 1Samuel 28:7)

2.spirit of jealousy (Numbers 5:14,30)

3.evil spirit (Judges 9:23; 1Samuel 16:14)

4.sorrowful spirit (1Samuel 1:15)

5.lying spirit (1Kings 22:22-23)

6.haughty (prideful) spirit (Proverbs 16:18)

7.perverse spirit (Isaiah 19:14)

8.spirit of deep sleep (Isaiah 29:10)

9.spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:1)

10.spirit of whoredom (Hosea 4:12; 5:4)

11.unclean spirit (Zechariah 13:2)

12.deaf and dumb spirit (Mark 9:17,25)

13.spirit of infirmity (Luke 13:11)

14.spirit of divination (Acts 16:16)

15.spirit of bondage (Romans 8:15)

16.spirit of slumber (Romans 11:8)

17.spirit of fear (2Timothy 1:7)

18.spirit of lust (James 4:5)

19.spirit of antichrist (1John 4:3)

20.spirit of error (1John 4:6)

21.seducing spirit (1Timothy 4:1)

22.spirit of Egypt [also known as the spirit of the world] – (Isaiah 19:3; 1John 2:15-16)

23.spirit of disobedience (Ephesians 2:2)

These various spirits may be named differently according to whatever Bible translation used. I have named them as mentioned within the King James Version of the Bible.

We must never forget that we are in a spiritual war and need to wrestle against the forces of evil (Revelation 12:7; Ephesians 6:12; 2Corinthians 10:3-6). We cannot overlook or be ignorant of Satan’s strategies and devices by which he assaults and seeks to destroy our lives (2Corinthians 2:11; 2Timothy 2:24-26)
