If you are reading this post and you don’t believe that there is a different realm and dimension beyond the one we can all see, then it is truly a pity. The truth is that humans don’t just exist on earth, we live in two realms at the same time but most people are only aware of one – the one we can see.
You are a spirit being having a human experience. The only difference between us and ghosts (spirits) is our body. Our bodies allow us the privilege to enjoy earth. Hollywood even blatantly shows these things (with an attempt to exclude God) but sadly lots of people are still ignorant.
‘But Favour, how do you know these?’ – Firstly, I come from Nigeria (West Africa) where the existence of extraterrestrial forces is ‘common knowledge’.Black magic(Juju/Jazz) is real, spirits are real BUT God is even more real. Secondly, the Bible teaches us in Ephesians 6:12 that ‘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 some of you might already know, my husband and I lived apart for a year after our wedding ceremony and it was a huge test for us. In that season, I realised at some point that I was just having lots of conflicts everywhere. I was disagreeing with everyone around me and it seemed like there was so much negativity around and people didn’t seem to like me as much. In that season, the Holy Spirit taught me to rebuke the spirit of strife and soon as I did, everything went back to normal. I became ‘favoured’ again. 😁
The spirit realm is so real and we cannot overcome without the Holy Spirit. In fact, if you enter the spirit realm without the Holy Spirit, you are a witch. The Bible tells us that the Holy spirit is to guide us into all truth (John 16:13). Yes, even truths of the spirit realm.
I have also had really bad attacks on my mind that were just not normal. Infact, one will ask how such thoughts will cross a person’s mind. Here’s the thing, most times those abnormal thoughts are from the pit of hell, this is why you must stay with the Spirit of Truth(John 14:17) also known as the Holy Spirit.
Think on these, your colleague that is always goosiping and looking to put people down, is that normal? (yes I know some people have bad characters but could it be that he or she is yielding to wrong spirits?) That constant urge to masturbate, is that normal? The constant disagreement with your spouse, could there an evil spirit behind that? We are in a war, child of God. Complacency is not a luxury we can afford.
No, I am not trying to scare you but we cannot be ignorant about these things. This world is very deep and we have lots of forces to battle but glory to God, we have overcome and are overcomers. The enemy is not stronger than God, the creation cannot be stronger than the Creator (God did not create them evil….that’s a different post for another day) . Please stay close to the Holy Spirit today. Your victory is assured. We win!
‘You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world’ – 1 John 4:4.
PS: To understand these better, I invite you to read ‘The Triumphant Church’ by Kenneth Hagin. You are also welcome to read ‘Angels and Demons’ by Micheal VanVlymen.
Jesus loves you!
