Seducing Spirits in the Church

First Published on October 30, 2017

Seduction is one of the most powerful tools used by Satan to lure the people of Yahuwah into a path of destruction. The saints simply never see it coming until its to late; they are seduced into submission. Many minister’s and pastor’s have fallen into the trance of a seducing spirit and will even fight to defend her doctrines. The Bible tells us that in the last days these spirits would come and many would give in to them. 1 Timothy 4:1… Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. The word of Yahuwah explores the workings of seducing spirits, and how they work on the believer to set up strongholds in the their heart. The people of Yahuwah need to be aware that the seducing spirit acts and lures just like a prostitute.

The existence of seducing spirits are evident in the scriptures. Satan employs these spirits to infiltrate Yahuwahs holy church in order to gain power over them and to enslave the saints of Yahuwah into a life of sin. These spirits have strongly influenced the churches today to commit spiritual fornication and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. We need to know the characteristics and powers of these seducing spirits and how they influence the mind of the saints with their deceptive doctrines. These spirits when involved in a saints life will render it powerless in dealing with overeating, sickness, sin, and demonic attack. If your life lack true resurrection power, healing, fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit, then you are in no doubt under the trance of a seducing spirit and doctrine of devils. Satan wants you to think its normal for a child of Yahuwah to live a life of mediocrity in Christ, and that only the pastors or bishops are anointed with power.

The bible tells us that we are endowed with power and that we have all the Spiritual blessings in heaven. Ephesians 1:3… Blessed be Yahuwah and Father of Yahusha Ha Meshiach (The Messiah) , who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Yahusha Ha Meshiach (The Messiah) Acts 1:8… But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you… 2 Timothy 1:7…For Yahuwah hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

This is what resurrection life is about and the moment we are born again we immediately have this life, and we have this power. But the problem lies within our minds because there is so much we don’t know and understand about Yahuwah and who we are in Yahusha Ha Meshiach (The Messiah); and spiritual things. This is why we need five fold ministry: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers. The problem in the churches today is that we have these but many of them are not called, not anointed, and have not surrendered to the cross of Yahusha Ha Meshiach (The Messiah). The five fold ministry is good for the body of  Yahusha Ha Meshiach (The Messiah), but this is useless if they do not surrender to the Ruach Ha Qodesh (Set Apart Spirit). And not only this but the people of Yahuwah also need revelation.

The power is in the revelation of the Ruach Ha Qodesh (Set Apart Spirit) and he is such a Teacher until you need not any man teach you. 1 John 2:26,27…26. These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. 27. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

Satan’s weapon is to use these seducing spirits to tempt you with the selfsame temptation he first used in the garden of Eden which was the temptation of knowledge. Satan didn’t tempt man with the tree of life because this was something that Yahuwah had already given man, but Satan wanted to tempt man with something he did not have….Knowledge. Man could have eaten from the tree of Life but man’s choice was knowledge. And ever since the devil has been using this to cause man to stumble.

Therefore we have become very dependent upon the guidance of our religious leaders and doctrines. Many of these teachings and doctrines have been handed down to us by these leaders and we do not even question the origin of these traditions. We hold on to these religious traditions and teachings like they are the law and we will even fight any teachings that are different. We are to submit ourselves unto Yahuwah concerning our Teachers, Pastors Bishops, etc,. The submitting of ourselves is to the Yahuwah first, then we submit to the leaders only if they are truly submit to Yahusha, but instead we continue to submit ourselves to these teachers, pastors, doctrines, traditions, etc. blindly without even questioning their walk, until the power of Yahuwah is so bottled up in us and it becomes of none effect. At this point you will not even hear what the Spirit is trying to say to the churches and have become dull of hearing with itching ears.

Mark 7:7-9,13…This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of Yahuwah, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of Yahuwah, that ye may keep your own tradition…13 Making the word of Yahuwah of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

The Seducing spirits and doctrines of devils have interfered with our growth. We think it’s normal for a child of Yahuwah, after being saved for a number of years to still be experiencing all kinds of problems in the flesh and spiritual weakness. After this point we are suppose to be living a new life full of the resurrection power. But instead we are wondering in the wilderness and wallowing in sins for years.
