Human agents unwittingly at work for the devil
by Jack Vorster
1/26/2012 / Christian Living
Agnostics, atheists, hardened criminals and others who have no godly direction in life are perfectly disposed to be processed for the devil's handiwork. They do not even have to be persuaded to be used. The devil and his spiritual cohorts simply just deliver the instructions to their minds. These humans do the rest by speaking out those thoughts or perform the actions as per the injected thoughts. These words or actions would be targeted at those the devil wishes to harm or destroy. Usually, it would be to destroy the good reputation or testimony of others, especially those who are in service as pastors, preachers and teachers of the Word of God. In fact, this is the devil's main agenda.
Sadly, nominal or even unwary Christians can, unwittingly, be set up to inflict the devil's purposes upon those who are innocent. Spouses and family members of those serving God in earnest can also be used to injure the reputation of the one serving God. Of course, we should fully expect this to happen, but it is indeed sad when members of one's own family apply this kind of pressure. "Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake." (Luke 6:22)
What few realize is that man is engaged in a war with a spiritual enemy intent on killing and destroying the human element occupying this planet. This is the devil's only agenda and he will use every Dick, Tom and Harry to accomplish his mission. So if you are a true believer serving God you can expect your husband, wife, family members, friends or even strangers to come under the scrutiny of the devil for use against you, especially if they are not conversant with God's Word. "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Eph 6:11,12)
Those nearest to you such as a spouse or close relative who are either unsaved or very lukewarm in the faith are prime candidates to be mentally manipulated against you should you be on fire for the Lord.
The ploy is as follows.
Demons will stand back and not apply mental pressure (not provide damaging thoughts) to the one being used when that person is in the company of visiting relatives or good friends. The purpose of this is to protect the "normal" personality of that person and to depict that person as an "innocent" within the family circle. But when the visitors are gone, demons will once again go to work and fill the mind of the "innocent" with thoughts designed to harass you from every angle. That person will believe it to be their own thoughts and speak them out against you and will also believe that they are actually being mentally abused by you because of those thoughts. This then will be conveyed to gullible friends and relatives at an opportune, well-orchestrated behind-the scenes time so as to frame you as the evil one in the family. You will then be regarded and labeled as a false Christian. Does this scenario sound familiar to you?
A typical discourse between two demons might go as follows:
No. 1. "We already have her murmuring and complaining about everything under the sun and we have her accusing her husband for everything of which she is guilty."
No. 2. "Yeah, serves him right for reaching thousands over the internet with the Gospel of Christ.
No. 1. "That was a masterstroke of yours getting her to tell lies about her husband to that strange woman."
No. 2. "It was easy. That strange woman also murmurs and complains and is so filled with her own self-importance that getting the two of them to dance was child's play. Besides, both of them are so engrossed in those soap operas on television where continual strife and betrayal is depicted that they are totally brainwashed to act likewise. Our master did a good job on the scriptwriters."
WE ARE ALL SPIRITS
Humans, demons and angels are all spiritual beings. However, humans were designed to function in the natural world and to experience only the physical aspects of their environment. Human beings are, therefore, spiritually blind. Demons and angels have no such limitations and they know that they can communicate with human beings as if the latter were just as spiritual as they are. In other words, they can speak to us and we can hear them, but we receive their voices as thoughts within the minds of our spirits and we interpret it as our own private thoughts.
Demons are disembodied spirits seeking physical bodies to possess and control. However, they need not possess our bodies in order to instill our minds with wickedness, for they have no problem moving through solid objects - our own physical bodies included. It stands to reason then, that demons can whisper (as if spirit to spirit ) prepared agendas to our spirit which our mind picks up as a thought. Thoughts are unspoken words for our mind to consider voicing at an opportune moment. Mature Christians are able to recognize and withstand these tactics and reject such thoughts.
Expressions of resentment, rebellion, sarcasm, discontent, anger, malice, vindictiveness, unbelief, jealousy and vengeance - accompanied by actions and body language to support such outbursts, are clear indications of demonic mind control. Such demon-invoked emotions are designed to not only destroy relationships within the environment of that person, but also to hinder a God-fearing member within that family.
Trying to reason with such a person would usually be met by a loud barrage of words and accusations compliments of those demons injecting a truckload of word-producing thoughts in staccato fashion at that moment.
Demon-invoked thoughts are really nothing else but an instilment of a spirit of fear within a person that not only stirs up negative emotions, but also makes that person prone to contracting bodily ailments which never seem to cease. The ultimate aim of the spiritual forces of darkness is to get that person into a straightjacket and confined to a mental institution. Be assured, there is no such thing as mental illness it is nothing more than a concentrated dose of demonic activity within the spiritual mind of the victim.
So, if you have such a person in your family, then all you can do is pray and ask fellow Christians to help you.
