Spirits are Attracted to Alcoholics and Drug Addicts
Evil spirits are attracted by many excesses that we may indulge or engage in, therefore if we are greedy, lustful, display anger or hatred, are violent, immoral, or we cheat, steal, are selfish, jealous, addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling or food we are open to the influence of a Spirit. (Galatians 5: 19-21)
These Spirits are attracted by such negative conduct and will after drawing close to a person of this nature, encourage them to become even more involved in the negative pursuit. People under spirit possession will gradually become totally consumed with the activity and it will dominate their life.
3. Occultist Organisations
Cults or occultist organisations who give allegiance to the devil and his evil spirits must be avoided at all costs, as their very creed and conduct is geared to the opposite of all that is good. A belief and life-style that actually welcomes evil spirit influences into your life is one that can lead to spirit possession.
Covens and individuals who call themselves witches and who openly admit to engaging in ritualistic witchcraft must be avoided, as these people are working with the evil spirit world and any contact with these groups will be detrimental to you.
Some of these organisations however who are engaged in occult practices openly testify to having respect and loyalty to God and allege to shun all that is evil. It is important in dealing with people who make such claims to always look at what good comes from their actions or their activities, for if they are of God it will be apparent. If you observe anything arising from the actions of such groups that is of a negative nature, then reject that organisation and its beliefs irrespective of their alleged allegiances.
Witchcraft is Extremely Dangerous!
Jesus talks of this in (Matthew 7: 15-23) stating that it is impossible for a good tree to produce bad fruit, and similarly a bad tree to produce good fruit. Jesus meant that if you are engaged in a work that is good and wholesome, it can only display to all people that fact, for only good effects will be seen. Similarly Jesus states that if your works or actions are not good and righteous then the fruit of your labour will be bad and observed by all as bad.
Use discernment therefore in dealing with such individuals or organisations for everyone shows by their actions and works who they are true followers of.
4. Divination of the Future
Through the practice of divination of the future a person can make conditions favourable for an evil spirit to be attracted to them and ultimately possess them. If you engage in the use of any instrument for divination of the future or foretelling of the future, you are at serious risk of possession by evil spirits. Tarot Cards, Runes, Crystal Balls, Palmistry or indeed any type of instrument or method for the purposes of foretelling the future are all to be avoided, as they are instruments used by these Spirits to influence you away from God.
Divination IS NOT a Gift from God
The user of such instruments may not realise or appreciate that they are being influenced and under the direction and control of a negative spirit, as they may feel that their information is in fact beneficial to the inquirers. Many believe that they are providing a service and thereby give help, counsel and advice to distressed people. This is what negative spirits want diviners to believe and it is hard for many people actively engaged in divination to accept this.
In observing the work of such diviners however it is seen that they often impart information that on reflection the recipient would rather have not received. Diviners inform people for example of an imminent illness or death of a relative or friend and consider it to be good positive insight as it allows them to prepare for the event.
Others advise of events in the future that are actually going to be of a worrying or stressful nature, with diviners once again considering their information allows the people concerned to prepare themselves for what is to happen.
Such information or insight is definitely of a negative nature, for the initial impact and effect such information has on the recipient testifies to that fact. A person in receipt of such information will not normally find it uplifting or beneficial, as they tend to become consumed with worry or sadness as what they know lies ahead.
A Diviner may not on every occasion impart negative information, but were there is an incidence or pattern emerging of this with the practice of divination of the future, then it cannot be of God and must be rejected. As God gives free will to all people so that even he himself doesn't know our ultimate decisions in life, so it must be appreciated that to inform people of future events that may alter that free will choice must be wrong.
As God does not want to influence our ultimate decisions it follows that no one should ever influence another's person's decision making process through insight into the details concerning the future life of that person.
Consider also the account in (Acts: 16: 16-20) in the Bible. The Apostle Paul was being harassed by a slave girl who was intent on being disruptive to the divine work that he and his followers were engaged in, with the interference being experienced from this person for many days. Due to this person actively using an instrument to foretell the future she had allowed an evil spirit to draw close, influence and possess her.
The spirit showed itself to be of an evil intent by virtue of the fact it was trying to disrupt the Apostle's work, which was given to him by God. This spirit was not a good Spirit of God for good and loyal Spirits of God would never allow themselves to be used for the purpose of Divination. This Spirit was not of God which is why the Apostle had to deal with it in the way he did. If divination of the future were in fact a spiritual service then the Spirit would not have influenced the girl to act in the way she did.
Both the spirit and the girl would surely have behaved in a more respectful way to the Apostle if their work too were from God. This spirit was not engaged in a true spiritual work and showed by its actions through the slave girl whom it was loyal to. Divination of the future therefore is not a Spiritual Gift of God and evil spirits control all divination of the future. An evil spirit will eventually possess any person who engages in divination of the future, for the insight into future events comes directly from them and not from God.
5. Direct Communication: The Ouija Board
One way that evil spirits are attracted and which puts you in grave danger of severe possession by them, is through the use of the Ouija Board. The Ouija Board is a communicational device that attracts evil spirits who wish you harm and upset and although initial use of such a board appears to be informative and innocent, its use must be avoided.
Lower negative Spirits Communicate through the Ouija Board
Evil spirits operating through the board usually lull you into a false sense of security, initially gaining your attention and appreciation by virtue of the interesting and accurate information it dispenses. Once these spirits have your attention and you begin to use the board regularly, you will then find information being dispensed that you wish you hadn't received.
The Ouija Board allows direct communication with the evil spirit world who has as their agenda your downfall, although you may possibly be able to use the board for some time before the damaging information is imparted.
Through the use of the board spirit possession can take on other forms, as your use of the board is a means for these spirits to enter your life and in a very tangible way. You may through the boards use for example be subjected to visions or apparitions of a disturbing kind, or attract the activities of sexual spirits known as Incubus or Succubus. Some users experience severe mental health problems after consulting the Ouija Board, which is due to the effect of the spirits influence and impression upon them.
The Ouija Board is a means to communicate with the lower spirits and is never used by the higher Spirits of God, it being an instrument of evil spirits and a sure way to allow them to possess you.
6. Negative Energy
Evil spirits can eventually possess you through a link with certain objects that come into your possession and which contain negative energy. Jewellery, furniture, clothing and books are just some of the items that can house suitable negative energy which can be used by evil spirits as a means to enter a person's life and possess them.
There is also no limit to the objects that can store such negative energy. Every living person continually emits energy, having around their physical body an energy field that is called an Aura. Depending on the way we conduct ourselves and what activities we engage in, will be the determining factor as to whether we emit positive energy or negative energy. All of our possessions absorb the energy that we personally emit, soaking it up perpetually like a sponge does with a liquid, so that any article we own will have imprinted upon it our own personal energy whether positive or negative.
(This is how Psychometry works, for a Psychometrist is reading the energy of the person that is contained within the object being held)
If a person has borrowed a particular object whether it is an item of jewellery, furniture, clothing or a book, the energy contained and emanating from that object will be that of the previous owner(s). If the emanating energy is of a suitable negativity, then evil spirits are able to draw close to the proximity of that object as the negative energy allows them to link with it, form an attachment and enter your life. Once the spirit has entered it is then in a position to influence all in possession of the object, or all those in proximity to it. As it is the object that houses the attractive negative energy it follows that whoever has ownership of the object will be the person to experience the problems related to negative spirit activity.
It is necessary to have such negative energy removed from the object by a person who has the ability to do so, which then serves to end the spirit's means of attachment and it will leave. It is not necessary to destroy such objects, only the negative energy housed within it.
The Church of Light as part of its spiritual work removes negative energy from such identified objects.
Any object that is purchased new will not house any energy at all, as it has not been owned by any person and will not in any way be able to serve the purpose of attracting evil spirits.
How to repel Possessive Spirits
If you live your life in a truly upright, honest, righteous and Godlike manner, then you will have nothing to fear from the evil spirit world. With such a spiritual outlook and life-style that states and identifies you as a follower of God, evil spirits will be repelled by you and they will never come near you. (James 4:7) Evil Spirits always try to impress you to think wrong thoughts or engage in wrongful pursuits, it being up to every individual therefore to resist them otherwise spirit possession can be a reality.
By not making conditions favourable for evil spirits to enter your life and by not engaging in the means to attract such Spirits you will be safeguarded.
Furthermore develop the " Fruits of the Spirit" of God which are love, joy, kindness, goodness, faith in God, mildness, self control and evil spirits will distance themselves from you. (Galatians 5: 22)
Always seek to do that which is right and honourable, living a life that is full of goodness and light, for if you do the spirits who are in spiritual darkness will never be able to assail you. (Ephesians 5: 8-21)
