Demonic Oppression and Spiritual Attacks! God help us!!!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

This isn’t going to be a very pleasant post, however, it’s happening, and it’s real!  I woke up at 1:30 am, not being able to sleep, and this was on my mind, so I got up out of bed to write about it.  I thought twice about writing this, because it’s very personal, it’s very dark, and it’s intense.  I hope and pray that it may be of some encouragement to other believers that may be experiencing the same things, just knowing that they are not alone in what they are also experiencing.  

Over the past several years, ten plus years, I have been under spiritual attacks, one after another.  I have been oppressed by demonic spirits and they are unrelenting!  Perhaps some of you are experiencing the same things, you know what I’m talking about, and you can empathize with me.

Demonic oppression and spiritual attacks are real things my friends.  It causes many believers to fall away from the faith, to fall into sin, and it can paralyze us from performing God’s will.  It can even drive some people to suicide, that’s how bad it can be!

Demonic attacks can cause a believer to fall into sin, and it can also cause a believer to distance themselves from God, that’s the intention of demonic spirits.  Thank the Lord I can say that it hasn’t caused me to do either, because I have nowhere else to turn except to God! However, it’s causing me to loathe this world, to loathe being in this world, and I want nothing more than to escape and go where I really belong, in heaven with God!  It’s even caused me to think about suicide, not that I would ever do it, but the thoughts have been coming into my mind, more than likely part of the spiritual attacks upon me.  I don’t like to talk about it, and I don’t even like to admit that I am having these thoughts, but I do, and they are real. I pray for the Lord to take me home, but my first prayer is for Jesus to come quickly and take all of us home in the rapture!  I don’t pray these things to be selfish, but to end the suffering and the misery.

These attacks have caused me to lose sleep, I have been waking up very early in the morning, at night really, anywhere from midnight on.  I have been filled with anguish from these attacks, and they are coming at me from every area in my life.  I’m not going to get into the details, but they are extremely bad!  

I don’t know why some Christians experience these things and others don’t?  I don’t know why God allows them to happen to His children when He loves us so much?  I just don’t understand it!  Is God allowing us to suffer in order to bring us closer to Him?  Are these merely thorns in our side in order to keep us on the right path, or is it the testing of our faith?

I do have to say that when these things started to happen and become really intense, I became close to God.  I could see things more clearly, and I had the desire to perform God’s will.  But they haven’t stopped, and they are even becoming more intense by the day!

I’ve tried to tell some people about them, but it seems as though most people (believers) don’t seem to care that much (not that they don’t but this is how it feels), or at least help me, besides saying that they will pray for me.  Not that prayer isn’t good, or it won’t help, of course it will, and I encourage and cherish all of the prayers!  What else can they really do?  They have their own lives and their own set of problems.  It just seems as though prayers aren’t helping, at least from what I can see.  I know that the good Lord is walking with me through the darkness, but He hasn’t removed the darkness!  This must be similar to how Job felt.  Nobody can really do anything to help besides prayer, only God can take away the suffering.

Not only am I being spiritually attacked, but I can see how the world is, the real world, and it isn’t pleasant!  This is making it even more difficult to live in this world.

For some reason it seems as though the good Lord has lifted a veil and shown me what is really happening in the world, I can see it, I can feel it, and I sense it.  Even many of the things in this world that appear good have underlying motives which are no good, they are sick and twisted to the core!  I hate this world, I hate everything about it, I abhor it.  I’m not talking about what God has created, nor what God has ordained as righteous and holy, no, I’m talking about the world system.  The world system is sick and twisted, and it’s not getting any better my friends, in fact it’s getting worse by the day, or perhaps the hour!  The world is under the sway of the wicked one and demonic forces are leading the way.  Spiritual forces of darkness are out to destroy humanity, and they are attempting to take us out one by one!

I can see the darkness in the world increasing, I can see the intentions of men’s hearts growing cold, deceptive, and full of wickedness.  Combine the spiritual attacks and oppression with the wicked world and it often seems overwhelming and unbearable!

When these demonic attacks first started happening to me, I feel to my knees and broke down in tears crying out to God.  I don’t cry anymore as I don’t have any tears left, sometimes I try but I can’t, they’ve all been used up!  I’m way past the point of tears, and they don’t help anyway.  

This demonic oppression and spiritual attacks are inhibiting my relationship with God.  They are keeping me from worshiping God as I should, and they are keeping me from performing God’s will as I know that I should be.  I can see this, and this in and of itself is causing more stress upon what I am already experiencing, it’s compounding upon itself!  It’s like a vicious cycle that will never end!

I don’t know exactly why God is allowing all of this to happen.  I don’t know why He is allowing us to suffer as many of us are.  I know that Jesus suffered much more than me, and I know that the bible tells us that if Christ suffered then we will also.  

Romans 8:17 (NLT)

“And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.”

1 Peter 4:1-2 (NKJV)

Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. “

I know what the bible says, but it doesn’t mean that I understand why we must suffer, at least not fully.  I suppose that one day in heaven I will understand God’s will, and I know that He has a purpose for it.  

I wish that I could be of more help to those under satanic oppression and demonic attacks, I pray to God that I could!  While I don’t really understand all of the reasons for it, I do know that God does love us, I believe that He has our best interests at heart, and I know that He will always be with me and never forsake me!  I also know that He will walk with me through the valley of the shadow of death.

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

The bible also tells us that our current sufferings are not worthy to be compared to the glory that awaits us. 

Romans 8:18

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

I have to keep in mind that God has a plan and a purpose for everything, and that many of the things of God are mysteries.  The sufferings of this current age will come to an end, but the kingdom of God will last for eternity!  Amen.

God has answered many of my prayers that I am aware of, over and over again!  But sometimes it seems as though He doesn’t answer them, at least not how I want Him to.  Even in the darkness I can see the hand of God in my life, He performs many small miracles, and I suppose that’s what keeps me going and lifts me up, these small miracles are like giant miracles in the darkness.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death God is with me.  I still hate the sufferings, the attacks upon my life, but I know that the good Lord will never forsake me!  I believe in His promises, and I believe that one day soon He will fulfill His promise of taking me home where I really belong!

Through the suffering we must try to remain focused on God and eternity!  Jesus suffered much more than me, and one day I will be with Him in paradise.  No more tears, no more pain, no more suffering, for all of eternity!  We will be filled with the glory of God, the way that we were created to be. 

Take heart my friends, be encouraged, know that you are not alone, that there are many other believers in the same situation.  Let us pray for one another in spirit and in truth!  And may the good Lord shine His light upon us in healing, protection, peace, and comfort as only He can.  As the children of God, we are the body of Christ!  We are one with God and God is one with us.

1 Corinthians 6:17

“But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.”

Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, and mind, and seek first the kingdom of God!

I love you brothers and sisters, just know that you are not alone, and that we are together in spirit!  And remember, one day soon we will all be united together in heaven with Jesus and our Father!  We can all feast together at the marriage supper of the Lamb, how awesome!

Good Lord Jesus, Father in heaven, please hear my prayers.  Many of Your children are suffering from demonic oppression and attacks.  Please God help us!  Deliver us from this evil, bind the evil spirits that are attacking us, protect us from harm, and lift us up with Your mighty right hand.  Fill us with Your peace and comfort that only You can, and encourage us to perform Your will.  In Jesus holy name.  Amen.

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!  Looking up!!!
