Demonic Invitation Pt. 1

Updated on August 16, 2017

This title either turned you off or pulled you into the subject at hand. Either way, it got your attention and I hope it keeps your attention as I explain in this 7 fold series in detail what the Holy Spirit has led me to on these topics. This is fairly a very touchy subject and some might even feel unease about it, but don't because the truth of the matter is, its a subject that you should be very aware and sure of. Many churches across the country fail to give the proper attention to the spiritual realm in which our physical world co-exists with, thus starving congregations of the spiritual food that believers of Christ need in order to grow & mature spiritually.


Spiritually Blind

Most people around the world are walking around spiritually blind & cripple, not knowing that the physical world in which we operate in is heavily influenced and dependent on what happens in the spiritual realm. Before we go any further I recommend that you not just take my word for it but check up on what I say with God's word, also pray & ask God to give you the spirit of discernment. The word of God says test the spirits by the Spirit.

1 John 4:1 "Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world."

The word of God tells us to test the spirits by THE Spirit, which is the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. The Spirit of God will expose any spirit that is not of Him and bring all truth to light. The word spirit in 1 John 4:1 is referring to people, being that we are made up of spirit, soul & body. So therefore test me to see if what I say lines up with the word of God.

Spiritual Awareness

First, we must not only understand that there is a spiritual world that is just as real as the physical world; but that there is a spiritual war at hand and we are in the midst of it all, whether we are a believer in Christ or not. As I stated in my other blog about spiritual awareness.

"Each day is a constant battle, God's Holy angles & Satan's demons are at war and the human mind is the battlefield, it is a spiritual battle for the control of your mind & the destiny of your soul."

Ephesians 6:12 "For we battle not against flesh and blood but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

What I want us to focus on in this article is the different ways in which demons are granted access into our lives. Notice I said "granted access", because Satan and his demons does not have free will. Demons must have permission to enter into our lives and the only one who can grant demons to have access into our lives is ourselves. You see we give demons permission to come into our lives whether we are aware of it or not, evil spirits can enter into our lives in many different ways. The most common ways that we allow evil spirits into us is through our eye gate, our ear gate and our mouth gate & with the different acts we engage into. These are avenues to our souls, which are portals or entry points for demons to enter in. We allow evil spirits into our lives by what we choose to watch, what we choose to listen to, what comes out of our mouth & by the actions we commit.

The Eye Gate

Luke 11:34 "Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when it is bad, your body is filled with darkness.

What we allow to enter in our eye gate is crucial, that's why what we choose to watch is so important. If you choose to watch negative, evil & perverse things for entertainment or any other reason, then what you are doing is allowing yourself to be filled with darkness, evil, negativity & perverse things. The same goes for when you allow your eyes to behold good things & positivity, then you will be filled with light.

Psalm 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cling to me.


It isn't good for anyone, let alone a child of God, to watch horror films. Answer this question, What kind of spiritual activity goes on in a room where a horror movie is being watched? Or what’s the source that’s feeding the minds of the writers & directors for making horror films? Story lines for horror movies are demonically inspired. The source feeding the information into the minds of the writers is evil, and you can bet that there’s a lot of dark spiritual activity going on in a room when one of these movies is being produced & or watched. It’s not God who inspires people to act out scenes of violent murder in sick and dark perverted ways, and it’s not God that encourages blood-spattering & fear-filled films. The source is demonic. When you watch horror movies you are inviting dark demonic spirits into your life and into the place wherever you are watching it at, whether you are aware of it or not. Horror movies are addicting, because the thrill of being afraid can be addicting. Getting a thrill from being scared through watching horror movies is against the Word of God.

I Thessalonians 5:22 Stay away from every form of evil.


Jesus tells us over and over to “Fear Not.” Jesus doesn’t want us to have unhealthy fear, because He knows it will draw demonic spirits of fear & many more to us. The goal of these demonic spirits is to gain access into lives, and then to bring decay, illness & chaos upon those who are drawn to watch the evil being carried out.

Psalm 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cling to me.

The opposite, of the verse above, happens when you choose to watch what is wicked or evil. The result is that it will cling, (or attach) itself to you. If you watch horror films of any kind, I guarantee that you have evil spirits (demons) working against you to cause fear, infirmities, anxiety and much more that's too many to list. If you have watched horror films recently or are still watching them occasionally, then I am sure that you are experiencing some of the following: unexplained aches and pains, disease/illness, fear, moodiness, insomnia, depression, rage, nightmares & much more. Do you hear unexplained noises in your home or when you're alone, or do you see dark forms or shadows that cause you to have an eerie feeling? If you watch horror films, then 9 times out of 10 it's the number one source of your problems. People often think they’re seeing "ghosts" when what they’re actually seeing, sensing, or hearing is demonic activity. These demonic spirits have access to your life, your home, and your family, to cause harm & wreak havoc in your life if you have given them the access through your eye gate.

Let's explore how significant our eye gates are.Take eve for an example. . .

Genesis 3:6 "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."

Satan had tried to get in by the ear-gate, saying all sorts of things in the attempt to deceive the woman, but all his efforts failed. Genesis 3:1-4 "Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die. “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

It was only when the devil switched his attack over to the eye-gate that Eve fell, causing Adam to give the earth over to Satan's control. Over and over again the Bible traces downfall and tragedy to the fall of the eye gate. It was't until when Peter saw, that's when his faith had suddenly collapsed. He was doing just fine walking on water to Jesus, until he took his eyes off Jesus and saw the terrifying wind & waves.

Matthew 14:30 "But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. "Save me, Lord!" he shouted."

Or take Achan as an example, When he saw, he disobeyed and took; and thus he brought destruction on himself and his entire family.

Joshua 7:20 & 24,25 "Achan replied, “It is true! I have sinned against the Lord, the God of Israel. This is what I have done: When I saw in the plunder a beautiful robe from Babylonia, two hundred shekels of silver and a bar of gold weighing fifty shekels, I coveted them and took them. They are hidden in the ground inside my tent, with the silver underneath.” Then Joshua, together with all Israel, took Achan son of Zerah, the silver, the robe, the gold bar, his sons and daughters, his cattle, donkeys and sheep, his tent and all that he had, to the Valley of Achor. Joshua said, “Why have you brought this trouble on us? The Lord will bring trouble on you today.”

The Lord had told Joshua & all the Israelites not to take anything from the city that they had captured, but the devil tempted Achan to covet by influencing him to look among the plunder of which they had captured, and he took it for himself & hid it. This had brought trouble to himself and the whole nation of Isreal. Joshua 7 goes more into detail, I encourage you to check it out for yourself. But what I am trying to get you to understand is that our eye gates are very important and we have to take careful caution about what we allow our eyes to behold, because it will effect us in ways we'd never expect.

Psalm 119:37 "Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, And revive me in Your ways."
