Religious Spirits

The following “15 Signs of a Religious Spirit” are derived from the Book of Jude, and from Jack Deere’s teaching Exposing the Religious Spirit.

This list delineates a spectrum of expressions of the religious mindset.

Manifestations of the religious spirit are not limited to Christianity, but can be identified in any false religion as well.

Your thoughts and comments are most certainly welcome.

Characteristics:

1. RIFT – One with a religious spirit believes he has a mission to tear down error or what he believes is wrong.

2. REBUKE – He has a hard time receiving rebuke from someone less spiritual than he.

3. REBELLIOUS – He will not listen to people, because he can hear from God.

4. REPULSED – He immediately notices what is wrong with people, or the church, rather than looking for what is right.

5. RIGOROUS – He keeps score on his spiritual life and carries guilt when he doesn’t add up to the Lord’s standards.

6. REJECTING – He feels as though he has been appointed to fix everybody else.

7. RIVAL – He may feel as though he is truly closer to God than others, and his life or ministry is more pleasing to God in comparison.

8. RANKS – He takes pride in spiritual discipline or spiritual maturity and ranks himself against others.

9. REPUTATION – He will do things in order to be noticed or affirmed by people.

10. RIGID – Religious spirits are overly repulsed by “emotionalism.”

11. RAUCOUS – Seemingly converse to the prior, a religious spirit will use emotionalism or hype to manipulate people.

12. RESISTANT – He will tend to resist the supernatural or reject spiritual manifestations he cannot understand.

13. REACTIONARY – He will overreact to carnality or immaturity in the body of Christ.

14. RENEGADE – He will not fully commit to a church or lend a hand to help if the group is not “perfect” in their theology.

15. REFRAIN – He will tend to be suspicious of or even oppose new moves of God.

A RELIGIOUS SPIRIT (mindset) seeks to substitute religious activity for the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God in the believer’s life.

The primary objective of a Religious Spirit (mindset) is to have the church “maintain an outward form of Godliness”, while denying the power of the Holy Spirit.

This is accomplished by seeking to replace true repentance and grace, with religious performance and works

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce-breakers, 
false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, {false…: or, one who foments strife} 
Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away 
2Timothy 3:1-5

This RELIGIOUS SPIRIT can work in partnership with the JEZEBEL SPIRIT which is a controlling, dominating and manipulative spirit! DEADLY!

This spirit works together with the WITCHCRAFT…..plain and simple!

The JEZEBEL SPIRIT will always be found close to someone who carries the ELIJAH SPIRIT…..THE ELIJAH MANTEL!

They will show up in their circle of friends, their bible studies, their church and will do everything in their power to counteract their ministry, their success and pull them down.

They don’t want you to succeed, to minister the gospel and especially do deliverance and set people free!

They are jealous of everything that you do!

 

This religious spirit wants to keep us from hearing the present day word by keeping you in the past….in the Torah instead of in the New Testament! Now, there is nothing wrong with the Torah!

This spirit will quote scriptures or show you scriptures ‘til the cows come home!!! They can’t give you enough scriptures!

You see them on your posts, in your comments.

They take advantage of your posts and quote as many scriptures as they can to either support your claim or disclaim it!

They not only will leave one comment but come back and leave another and yet another! They want to control YOUR POST!

They want all the attention instead of you! Their goal is to distract the others from the real topic!

They want to get everyone off track, therefore causing confusion in the end…and they do!

It also works through a SPIRIT OF PRIDE, HAUGHTINESS!

People who operate with these spirits usually have a tremendous amount of pride.

They so they think they are better than everyone else because “they know the word of God” better than anyone!

They always try and control the conversation, by telling you endless facts why they are right! They never stop talking.

They want all the attention in the room! They actually become obnoxious! To we who have discernment…they make us sick!

This religious spirit is under the STRONGMAN OF LYING, the LYING SPIRIT!

The spirits that are connected to that are: Strong deceptions; flattery; Superstitious; accusing spirit; religious bondages; false prophesy; gossiping; false teachers.

NOW IF YOU HAVE THIS CONTROLLING RELIGIOUS SPIRIT OR THE ANY OF THE OTHERS PRAY:

IN JESUS NAME….SATAN……I BIND YOUR POWERS THIS DAY AND YOUR RELIGIOUS SPIRITS ACCORDING TO MATH 18:18 WHICH SAYS WHATSOEVER I BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN AND WHATSOEVER I LOOSE ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN!

SO I BIND YOU NOW AND YOUR DEMONS OF:

RELIGION; FALSE TEACHING; LEGALITY; RELIGIOUS BONDAGES; PRIDE, HAUGHTINESS AND ARROGANCE; THE JEZEBEL SPIRIT, DOMINATING, CONTROLLING AND MANIPULATIVE WITCHCRAFT SPIRITS; GOSSIPING AND ACCUSATORY SPIRIT; SPIRIT OF DECEPTION AND LYING; SUPERSTITIOUS SPIRIT

AND CAST THEM OUT! I PUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS AT THE ROOT AT WHICH THEY CAME IN! I CLOSE THOSE DOORS.

SEAL THEM WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS 
AND SEND THEM TO JESUS FOR JUDGEMENT AND FORBID THEM TO COME BACK IN ANYWAY, SHAPE OR FORM OR TO TOUCH ANYONE ELSE ON THE WAY!

I LOOSE NOW:

YOUR HOLY SPIRIT TO THE MAX LORD TO FLUSH ME OUT! I LOOSE YOUR TRUTH INTO MY MIND AND MY HEART!

I LOOSE LOVE, JOY, YOUR MERCY AND GRACE, A DESIRE TO PUT OTHERS FIRST INSTEAD OF MYSELF!

FORGIVE ME FOR SINNING LORD! FORGIVE ME FOR WANTING ALL THE ATTENTION AND TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK I’M SO HOLY, I’M SO WONDERFUL!

FORGIVE ME FOR CRAVING ATTENTION! LORD FILL THE GAP IN MY LIFE! FILL ME TO OVERFLOWING WITH YOU AGAPE LOVE!

LORD SEND OUT YOUR WARRING ANGELS NOW TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY, TO FIGHT AND DO BATTLE FOR ME IN THIS AREA!

I CALL THEM FORTH LORD! THANK YOU JESUS THANK YOU, FOR INTERVENING! IN JESUS NAME I PRAY, AMEN AND AMEN!!!!
