  • It depends on how you mean it. Does it involve deliverance?

  • Well, in deliverance (some would call it exorcism), great discernment must be used. You HAVE to know that the voice you're hearing is the Lord's and that your life is right with Him. Otherwise, those spirits can come back on YOU.

    Many are not possessed but are influenced by spirits that are not of God. I experienced one of these deliverances several years ago. The woman minister was hearing what the Lord told her, and she told me things about my life that she had no way of knowing. Fears from my childhood were dealt with. Fear is something the devil does NOT want you to get rid of because it frees you to fight him!

    I'm probably confusing you further, but this is one way the Lord sets people free.

  • Spiritual warfare exists in the unseen, supernatural dimension, where God is all-powerful and Satan is in rebellion. Although we don't physically see spiritual warfare going on, any Christian will eventually realize that it’s absolutely real. The Bible talks of spiritual warfare in lots of places, but most directly in Ephesians 6:12, where Paul speaks of putting on the full armor of God: “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.” As Christians, we’re going through more than a mere “struggle” on earth – and war imagery reflects this reality better than anything else.  con't

    Since it’s warfare, God instructs Christians to use a very specific set of armor and weapons in Ephesians 6:14-18: “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit...” What is unique about God’s list of weaponry is that these are actually “weapons of peace.”  Spiritual warfare is a reality of the Christian life. But we know the ending – our side wins.  con't

    Since the Devil has already lost, he has nothing to lose in trying to take as many people with him in defeat. Therefore: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:10-11).

  • well, yes demonic spirits may come a visit in a dream, but you also have the power in your dream to cast it out of your dream and to leave you alone, calling the God almighty and in Jesus christ 's name, you must shout him out, that happened to me once, or twice, i hate it but it can happen, it doesnt happen to many people, but who knows knowadays, maybe more now
