What the Devil Does Not Want You To Know

By Rick King

Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

We talk often about the fruit of the spirit. We know the fruit of God’s spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (Galatians 5: 22 and 23). This is the fruit of a godly spirit. But what about the fruit of an ungodly spirit?

You may be one that believes that there are no demonic spirits or that they have no effect on a born again Christian. Well, have you ever experienced fear? Of course we all have. Is fear just a word or something else? The Word of God says this about fear:

2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Notice what is said? Fear is called a spirit. It is not just a word. It is a spirit. Being that all spirits have fruit, what is the fruit of a spirit of fear? The answer is simple. The fruit is fear. The spirit of fear causes fear. But whose fear is it? It is not our fear, it is the spirits fear. The spirit is the one that is fearful. When we are attacked with fear, and notice I say attacked, the sprit of fear attempts to make us believe that (WE) are scared. It is not us that is fearful. It is the spirit that is fearful. Once we call it ours, then it has legal ground to become a part of us and reside in our body or mind. If we can but separate the spirit from us and just realize that it is not us, then we can gain victory over all fear. We have authority in Jesus name to deal with any demonic spirit. If it were just us, we find that in our flesh dwells no good thing and so we can’t deliver our self. No good thing cannot fix no good thing. It is not by might nor power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord. It is about His power and ability. If we can separate the fear from us and just know that it is a spirit and not us, deliverance comes fairly easy then.

Once we can realize that it is just a demonic spirit attacking us, we can take up our shield of faith and cause it to bounce off instead of penetrate. An example that I experienced years ago was I was on my way to a church service. All the sudden I got attacked with major fear. I thought to myself, wait a minute, why would I be afraid to go to church? I then remembered the scripture that God did not give me the spirit of fear. I just then said thank you devil as I recognize this as you, and I now know that I am to go to church. I could have allowed this to keep me from church by accepting the fruit of that spirit. Instead the Lord caused me to recognize that it was a spirit and not me. I had no reason in myself to fear going to church. That was ludicrous to think I was scared of church. Scared of getting into God’s presence and receiving from Him? What is there to be scared of? A blessing? Peace and joy?

The point that I want to make here is the fear that hits you is not you. It is a spirit that God has given us power and authority over. We do not have to entertain the spirit. The devil is always a liar and deceiver. He tries to tell you that this is you. This is a lie and deception. If he can get you to believe this lie, then he can keep you bound with all kind of fears. I hope that this truth will set you free from all of your fears. We are men and women of faith, not fear.

I am a 61 year old Born-Again spirit filled Christian, that has been saved for 30 years. Jesus found me when I was suicidal. I learned real quickly that I was powerless to be in control of my life, so I let Jesus take over. He has chosen me to be a warrior for Him. WE win, if we fight His way.
