Just wanted to share a story from my time overseas and how the Holy Spirit helped me walk through a challenging transfer between countries. We don't know what's ahead for us in this world's system. It is important that though we see the world flailing, or the statue tumbling as I like to call it, we must stay rooted and grounded in our faith. That means learning how to rely on the Lord Jesus through instruction and guidance by our Helper, and member of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit. The world's religions want to give you a "spirit guide" or they ask you to reach out and seek after such guidance, and if you adhere to these directives, you will not meet with the Spirit of the Lord God, the Holy Spirit, but you will meet up with something parading itself as Jesus that is not. How do you discern the difference? Well, first you should not be seeking a guide apart from the Lord Jesus and His Holy Spirit. If you get a visit as a believer, or you are "seeking an encounter" or "seeking to contact" a dead relative, etc, or you think you might've had a visit from one. This is very dangerous if you continue to "commune" with this familiar spirit.
The Bible is very clear about this: “For satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:14). That's saying that satan and his angels--who are really demonic spirits--can play the game of pretend. After all, satan is the mother and father of all liars and will take anyone down the road of darkness who is seeking something more apart from seeking the Truth of Jesus and His Word. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, BUT TEST THE SPIRITS, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” (1 John 4:1-4). If you get a spirit visiting you, test them with the above verse! We are to NOT seek out an experience with ghosts, as is so popular now to go visit a haunted this or that, or go seek the dead, etc. You are playing with fire if you do that and that is how people get demon possessed frankly. I've seen demon possessed people on the field and its not a pretty sight! Jesus has come that we can be FREE from all forms of demonic bondage! We have authority over satan and demonic presences through the Blood of Jesus and the Word of our Testimony of how we received Jesus as our Savior and who God is in our lives. We cannot overcome without the Lord. We can do nothing apart from Him (John 15).
DO seek the Lord! DO cry out to Jesus, Repent of your sins and ASK Jesus to come into your heart and He will protect you from any foul spirit! You CAN ask the Lord Jesus to fill you with His Holy Spirit---but note, the Holy Spirit infilling and baptism with evidence of tongues cannot be received by someone who has rejected Jesus as their Savior! Start with square one, accept Jesus and the Holy Spirit of God will fill you and comfort and guide you into ALL TRUTH!
