Seducing Spirits

Seducing Spirits: I Timothy 4:1-3 KJV

Can a Christian be possessed or oppressed by demons?

How do demons enter?

Deliverance of demons.

  • Spirit of fear and bondage.
  • ++Spirit of divination.
  • ++Deaf & dumb spirit.
  • ++Spirit of error and lying spirit.
  • Spirit of pride and haughtiness.
  • ++Spirit of heaviness.
  • ++Spirit of infirmity.
  • ++Wounded spirit.
  • ++Seducing spirit.

Here is what I see. . . . .

If you intend to please God, live for Him without any reservation and spend eternity in His presence, then you must not leave your faith and be seduced by the powers of darkness.

Billions of demons of seducing spirits have been released in this final hour. Working 24/7 to influence you to depart from your faith, compromise the Word of God in order to steal your destiny and destroy the purpose and plan of God in you.

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; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

I Timothy 4:1-3 KJV

 The Bible speaks of “falling away” from the faith in the last days.

1. Departure. . . .  “Apohiotemi” = fall away; stand off or away from.

2. Rebellion. . . . . “Apostasia” = forsake; renounce.

 For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:

I Thessalonians 2:3 KJV

3. Scandal. . . . . “Skandalisthesonta” = entice to sin; trap. 

 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray on another, and shall hate one another.

Matthew 24:10 KJV

4. Turn away. . . . .  “Apostrephein” = turn away; avoid.

 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

II Timothy 4:3-4 KJV

Bottom line:

++As we get closer to the return of Christ there will be more deception and seducing spirits. Therefore, make sure you are standing firm in your faith to never be deceived by rebellion, scandal, false doctrines, or cultural shifts.


 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;

I Timothy 4:1 KJV

Process of seducing spirits:

1. Departure from faith (Word of God, allegiance to God).

2. Attention and allegiance to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

Principles of seducing spirits:

1. Worldly principles.

Logic- What seems right in my own mind.

2. Fleshly principles.

Emotions- What feels right in my own eyes.

3. Devil principles:

Steal, kill, and destroy- “Did God really say that?”

 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’? And the woman said to the serpent. “we may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Genesis 3:1-5 ESV

Where did this seducing spirit originate?

  “How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north;  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’  But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit.

Isaiah 14:12-15 ESV

“His destiny is written today in the Word of God, but Lucifer does not want truth; he will not accept it. The truth has no influence over him. Lucifer thrives on lies, nonetheless, the day is soon coming when he will be cast down to the bottomless pit.” 

(-Ernest Angley, “Seducing Spirits”)

Progress of seducing spirits:

“doctrines of devils”



 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:8 ESV


 who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

I Timothy 4:3 ESV

Production of seducing spirits:

1. Liars

2. No conscience

Keys to overcome seducing spirits.

1. Watch and pray.

You may think you can’t be seduced but the Bible says, “Let him that thinks he can stand take heed lest he fall”.

 Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.

I Corinthians 10:12 ESV

“Abstain from all appearances of evil”

 Abstain from every form of evil.

I Thessalonians 5:22 ESV

2. Learn to test the spirits.

 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

I John 4:1 ESV
