How to test the true identity of all spirits, alleged dead relatives or pet animals, so called Spirit Guides, dead saints, Angels, Aliens, Ascended Masters, Fairies, etc –
In the supernatural realms, all that glitters is not gold! You’ll have noticed an increase in workshops teaching the public how to contact their angel, use Angel Cards, how to become Light Workers & Healers. Or classes in how to become Mediums and attempt to contact ‘dead’ people or animals.
If you buy New Age magazines, you’ll have noticed classes in seeking guidance from a wider range of spiritual beings, such as fairies, unicorns and other mythological creatures.
‘Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.’ 1 John:4
2 Corinthians 11:14-15
‘And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.’
An explanation of this & practical advice on how to test and challenge every entity that appears to you, is offered below. In summary, the above verse warns us, that Satan & his demons can appear to us, impersonating one of God’s angels, or a dead relative, etc. Spirits are masters of disguise and can change their identity easily, falsely claiming to be someone.
Think of ‘shape-shifters’ in movies, how convincingly they can persuade others their appearance isn’t a fake disguise, but genuine!
If any so called ‘angel’ ever appears to you, please properly test it, for your own safety and to ensure that he truly is one of God’s angels.
Whether an entity appears to be just a ‘healing energy,’ an angel, an orb, a dead or alive human or animal spirit, fairy, alien, spirit guide, unicorn or any mythological creature, etc, test it!
Even if it’s energies feel as if it’s full of peace and love, please still challenge it.
Even if it claims to be an angel or person from the Bible, such as Gabriel or Isaiah, still test it!
Even if it’s appeared to you daily for the past 20 years, please test it.
You’d be surprised how many people have done this and told me so!
By testing it, I’m not endorsing having a discussion with it, but rather a confrontation!
1. Firstly, pray to Jesus Christ, asking Him to send His Holy Spirit to help you.
2. Then ask the entity to declare these statements to you : That the Jesus Christ of The Bible, has already come to our earth in the flesh, died on Calvary’s Cross for our eternal salvation and remission of our sins. That He is the Saviour, His blood cleanses us from sin, and is the way we are allowed entry to heaven.
A demon will not be able to declare those statements politely to you! Instead, he will argue and become hostile, even violent, and possibly scream obscenities. If the ‘angel,’ or any entity fails this test, then just command it to immediately leave you, in the name of Jesus Christ. And it will vanish!
Don’t be concerned that a true angel of the Lord may be offended. If he truely has come from Jesus, he won’t be offended at all. And if he leaves, then this emphasizes he was from satan and it’s best he left anyway, offended or not!
3. Declare a few scriptures to the entity. As they are the words of God, they contain explosive spiritual power in such spiritual warfare situations.
Every entity knows the scriptures and will react in ways that reveal their true identity.
Here are a few that I especially like, as demons seem to particularly hate them!
Philippians 2:9-11 ‘Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father’. (That includes the knee & tongue of every demon, on Judgment Day! No wonder they hate this verse).
Colossians 2:15 ‘And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.’ (As every angel and demon – ‘spiritual powers & authorities’, were at Calvary’s Cross, watching Christ’s cruxifiction, they still remember it and how His atoning sacrifice as the world’s Saviour occurred that day).
Revelation 19:13-16 ‘He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean … On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: King of kings and Lord of lords.’
Revelation 20:10 ‘And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.’
4. Lastly, Thank the Lord Jesus, for revealing the truth to you. If you followed those steps and the angel was from Jesus, it will have agreed with all you said. If however, it was a deceiving spirit, it will have showed it’s true colours and became furious and possibly obnoxious. Often, their false mask disappears, to reveal their true evil face beneath. Ask Jesus, what He’d like you to do next. For advice on your next step, please see my note ‘Your Life?’, in the top menu.
Also, please read the below extract from EX Spiritualist Medium, Lyn’s testimony, as it gives a practical example of how to test the spirits. You can read her full story in my older posts, from July 2012. What she describes is something I hear a lot from others world-wide, so her story is not unique, yet usually kept quiet amongst New Agers or Occultists.
“I was able to put a face to the voices I heard, they were of young people, old people, children, every time I mentioned my nephew to my Christian freind she would say, ‘Lyn its not your nephew, those are not dead relatives, they are all demons.’ I said, ‘Dont you dare call my nephew a demon and how do you know they arent loved ones passed over?’ She said, ‘Lyn I dare you the next time you see your so called nephew to tell him to reveal himself in Jesus name!’
So one night I did. He changed from a young child to this hideous thing! My face would change when ever the spirits inside me took over. I had been seeing a shrink because of me hearing voices and seeing things and they put me on many medications but none seemed to work …
… I called out to God and asked Him to forgive me and accept me as I am. I cried for two hours. He heard my cry.
This of course angered the spirits even more, and the ones who I thought were dead loved ones turned on me,they started banging things around my flat, I would put things down and when I turned around it would be missing, they would wake me up by screaming in my ears, pull my pictures off the wall and attacked me while I slept.
I have got rid of all my occult stuff, turned my back on all my involvement in the occult and darkness and now walking in the light!
10th of April 2012 I went for ministry … I am now free! I no longer hear the voices! I feel like I have lost 20 stones, my freinds have said that my face looks so much brighter and even my voice has changed! I feel so much peace. I thank my Lord Jesus Christ for the freedom He has given me!
After Deliverence, for the first time in 15 years there was silence in my head, it was a weird thing, being able to wake up not hearing condemning, commanding and aggressive voices is bliss, I also have full control over my body …
I thank you for taking the time to read this and my prayer is that if you are reading this and you are involved in Spiritism, then please get out of it. Jesus Christ of Nazereth is calling out to you, it’s not by chance that you are reading this, its by Gods divine appointment.
If you are also reading this and you are going through anything that I have mentioned in my testimony, then know this – that if God can help me and get me out of it, then He will and can do the same for you ! It’s willpower, your will and His power! Jesus died that we might be saved, set free and be forgiven. Amen.” Lyn, April 2012.
Here’s a comment from my friend Kristine, an EX Medium/EX Witch & EX Ghost Hunter Kristine McGuire an author and guest speaker on The 700 Club, USA. ‘I am a former Medium and Ghost Hunter who was brought up in the church, became a Christian as a young child, but walked away into Witchcraft and the above practices mentioned, for eight years. As a Medium I had multiple Spirit Guides who seemed benevolent at the time, but what I came to learn is their guidance was a deception.
I also sought to work with only those which were positive beings or “highest light” but they were as the Bible declares familiar, demonic spirits “masquerading as angels of light”. I’ve written a number of articles on my former experiences as a Medium and Ghost Hunter (as well as Witchcraft). I’ve posted one below if you care to read it.
One thing I would ask you to keep in mind – you have no real way of knowing if the spirits and guides you communicate with are genuinely who they say they are. The only way to know is to “test” the spirits as Laura and others have mentioned according to what scripture says. Blessings in Christ to you.
Here’s Kristine’s article : http://kristinemcguire.com/spirit-guides-angel-lord/
Another friend Tina Storey comments, ‘I used to be a Tarot Card Reader and didn’t even suspect I was tied to any spirits. It was when I tried to throw the cards away that a spirit started to force me into trance against my will. It was then that I begun to question the nature of such spirits.
This spirit came to me at a Holy Communion Church Service and fled as soon as we begun to sing to Jesus Christ. It has never been back. Anything which flees from Christ is of the Anti-Christ.
I think it’s worth thinking over the fact that we are actually not in control of these beings – they will let you believe you are in control – and then show their true demonic natures when you try to break your tie to them.
When they begin to harass and attack, you realise just how limited we are in a physical body, they have the obvious advantage over us, being spirit beings. They may be more powerful than us, but they will never be more powerful than Jesus Christ, and it’s Jesus who loves us. These spirits do not love us, they are devoid of love and are only out to destroy.
Here’s a brilliant little book which I found so helpful when I decided to leave the Occult, it doesn’t cost much and is really worth reading. This guy used to be a Medium, then he decided to test the spirits in the name of Jesus, they reacted violently and he learned that these are actually demonic beings. He later became a Baptist Minister.’
‘I challenge you to ask the spirit guides you speak with to tell you their real name, in the name of Jesus Christ. I am interested to see what happens.
If they turn on you and you need help call on the name of Jesus Christ and he will help you. His name is the highest of all and trumps any spirit, angelic presence or entity. Let me know how it goes. Take Care. Jon.’
Also here is a video Jon made that will help you rid them if you feel the need. http://youtu.be/LNoFUWlE7g4
Jon added, ‘The above is a ‘how to video’ on casting out demons … As disciples of Christ we are ordered to cast out demons and preach the Gospel. If you have experienced any of these things … you can contact me or go to a local church that practices Deliverance.’
My good friend Vince McCann wrote, “Angel Of Light ? Do not be mislead. Great evil is often veiled by great deception. Things that give the appearance of being good can sometimes be just the opposite. ‘… for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.’ (2 Corinthians 11:14).”
Also, please go to this link with a video Vince made about angels – Do you talk to angels?
I pray this article has helped. Jesus is the true light of the world, amen.
I pray this article has helped. Please see my related article, Spirits impersonate the LIVING and NOT just dead people!
Glory to God and God bless you,
