Our society causes many to unknowingly function under the influence of familiar spirits. These spirits operate undercover in the name of tradition, trend, fashion, lifestyle, and personality traits.
A familiar spirit is any demonic assignment that surveys and studies people, territories, and bloodlines of families. The goal of their assignment is to gather spiritual intelligence that will open doors to instigate death and destruction. They enter and gain power in people’s lives by disguising themselves as something common (familiar) while operating unawares through people, places, and things.
Familiar spirits attach themselves to you through something or someone you are extremely familiar or comfortable with. But all the while their agenda is unknown to you. A person can willfully form a relationship with a familiar spirit oftentimes simply through ignorance. This is why it’s critical to know what you are inviting into your home and heart. Leviticus 10:10–11 instructs the Levites to teach people the difference between what is holy and what is common.
My prayer is that you will close your eyes to the natural and open them to the supernatural. No longer walk by sight, but instead walk by faith.
So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
2 Corinthians 5:6-10 ESV
