Search me, O God, and know my heart; ...See if there is any offensive way in me...

Psalm 139:23-24 NIV Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

August 20, 2009

On August 18, 2009 I had a dream which was more of a “night vision” in which God showed me three demonic attacks and how these specific demons are able to work covertly in the life of Christians. I was shown three different types of demons and I was able to observe how they operated. These are three attacks coming against people right now.

How demons work The insight I received in the dream was that demons were actually created by God and were once in Heaven until they rebelled and were cast to earth along with Satan. What we may not realize is that since they were originally angels in Heaven, they operate similarly to angels and God’s principle. Since they have been cut off from the life source of God, they attempt to gain power back through the connection with God through His people. Since it is not easy for a demon to inhabit a Christian, they have found ways to cling to them and try their best to remain unnoticed. Then when God’s power or anointing comes upon the person, the demon “cling-ons” begin to get empowered in an evil way through the anointing of God. Remember, this anointing was once their life flow and now they love to tap it off and distort it for evil.

Three demonic attacks

The Fly – This demon is so small and seemingly insignificant that most people are not even aware that it is present. Flies are drawn to garbage, so they are attracted to Christians who have sin that is not repented and is not under the Blood of Christ. This sin does not usually appear to be big or may not seem all that bad in the eyes of the Christian, and they may not even realize that they have it. It is things like gossip, unforgiveness, pride, unbelief, self-promotion, to name a few. The Fly demons are persistent and attach themselves to the sin of the Christian and wait.  Then as a Christian gets anointed with God’s power in any way, the Fly demon begins to slowly tap off small amounts of the anointing to empower the sin even more. If they remain unnoticed long enough, they can cause the sin to become much more serious and will spread to other areas of the person’s life.


The Crab – This demon tries to get people in a pinch or into stressful situations. I saw it hanging around a person’s feet and trying to get them tripped up into feeling stressed out or overwhelmed. Once the stress increases, the person loses their peace and is less likely to demonstrate the Fruit of the Spirit in their life. The minor irritations this demon causes will eventually develop into anger and even rage. Like the Fly, the Crab demon will light up with false power when the Christian gets anointed. If this demon is not dealt with, the person will experience stressful feelings all the time for no apparent reason. They will also begin to get angry but excuse their anger on just being frustrated. The result is that their anger remains unrepented and can eventually blind the person to their own condition.

The Eyeball – This was the trickiest of all three demons. The eye represents vision and prophetic destiny.  This demon, unlike the other two, was never really attached the person but stayed close enough as if it was part of them. The demonic Eyeball carries with it false vision and the ability to get people sidetracked. I saw the Eyeball bounce in front of a person as if to lead them to something new. When the person got closer, it went a different direction, causing them to zig-zag and get frustrated. This frustration would turn to anger and was being blamed on God.  In the dream I smashed the Eyeball and it went into hundreds of pieces that scattered and appeared to still be alive. This was a second phase of the attack to continue to get people to be distracted instead of looking to what God has for them.

The remedy These three attacks primarily are to get Christians to talk against others, be angry, stressed, and feel directionless. Most of the people under the influence of these attacks are blaming God or other people for their conditions. The way to overcome these demons is to pray and ask God to reveal to you if you have any of these conditions. Ask God to open your eyes to any sin you have that you have not repented of. It will require repenting and changing any behaviors that the demons have been inflicting. If you have been angry, then you will need to slow down and take a time-out. If you have been blaming God for your lack of direction, you will need to ask forgiveness and focus your eyes back on Him. If you are stressed out, remember to seek first the Kingdom of God. Try taking a short prayer walk or drive and rise above your current situation. This is not intended to inflict fear but instead, shed light on how the enemy can get us tripped up. Remember that you have authority over these demons and they must flee once you expose them.

Psalm 42[a][b]

For the director of music. A maskil[c] of the Sons of Korah.

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.

My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”

These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One[d] with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng.

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.

By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.

I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?”

10 My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, “Where is your God?”

11 Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
