Overcoming Wicked Spirits That Manipulate and Deceive 

Valentine’s is tomorrow! This wicked spirit will be in operation! Beware 

What do I mean?

Yesterday, I established that the spirit realm is filled with good and bad spirits. 

We are not supposed to yield to these bad spirits that are wicked. We are supposed to yield to the Spirit of God! 

There are wicked spirits that operate through manipulation and deception.

How can one identify these spirits? How can one protect themselves from such influences?

Do you remember the story of Samson and Delilah?

Jdg 16:4 (KJV) And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.

Loving this particular woman was the beginning of Samson’s nemesis.

The lords of the Philistines have tried several means to snuff out the life of Samson but to no avail. They were frustrated each time. They resorted to using Delilah.

Delilah obliged having been promised some large chunk of money!

Three times, Samson deceived Delilah and in those three times, he saw clearly that Delilah was after his life! 

But he still became a victim?


There was the operation of wicked spirits employing manipulation and deception.

Jdg 16:15 (AMPC+) And she said to him, How can you say, I love you, when your heart is not with me? You have mocked me these three times and have not told me in what your great strength lies.

How many times have you heard this statement?

And you say you love me? That was what Delilah used and Samson fell for it. This same statement will fly around a lot on Valentine’s Day! Please don’t fall for it! Don’t lose your virginity if you still have one! And even if you are not one, don’t sleep around on that day!

The goal of this manipulative and deceiving spirit is constant harassment till you yield. 

Jdg 16:16 (AMPC+) And when she pressed him day after day with her words and urged him, he was vexed to death.

Samson fell asleep on her lap!

A lot of destinies have fallen asleep, and hibernated under the influence of these wicked spirits! 

You will not be caught sleeping when you should be awake in Jesus’ name! 

Jdg 16:21 (MSG) The Philistines grabbed him, gouged out his eyes, and took him down to Gaza. They shackled him in irons and put him to the work of grinding in the prison.

They eventually caught him and the first thing was to take out his eyes! That is the goal of this wicked spirit, to make you stop reading and studying God’s word!

Your eyes will not be taken out! 

We judge every wicked spirit operating through manipulation and deception in Jesus’ name! 

Good morning!
