Some of you will think of yoursel2es and how theseseducin! spirits ha2e tried to minister to you. 5thers will think offriends and family members who once ser2ed the ord so well andfer2ently but now ha2e been turned o2er to !ossip/ talebearin!/ malice/strife/ and ealousy and are always accusin! the church leaders.

    lease beware et this book be a warnin! to you. % pray that thede2il and demons will be e6posed throu!h this writin!.

    There really are seducin!/ decei2in! spirits roamin! the earthwantin! to minister to you. 9on:t let the reli!ion and pride of Saul !eton you. 9on:t let the uprisin! and insolent spirit of ;orah !et on you.9on:t let the hatred and seduction of >e?ebel work a!ainst your leaders.9on:t let the ealous conspiracy spirit of Absalom !et on you. Shake

    them off and commune only with the Holy Spirit.

    A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

    The heart of the author is one of humility/ yet the presentationherein is quite bold. %t is not the intention of the author to hurt anyonein any way with this writin! but to stir up those who ha2e been attackedby these spirits so they can free themsel2es.

    &ot one person anywhere in the body of -hrist has to !i2e heed to

    these spirits or their style of life. &o8not one

    The author plans to warn some readers/ inform others/ and e2en setsome free.

    This book is by far best read if one is like >esus8humble/ holy/and not a re2iler.

    This is not a book on demonolo!y.

    %t is a book about people who are close to bein! in trouble withod because of demon acti2ity or fleshly bad attitudes.

    CHAPTER 11THE DEVIL'S SLY TECHNIQUES

    "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times someshall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, anddoctrines of devils;

    %he &evil's Sly %echni(ues

    Most -hristians do not try the spirits. %nstead/ they put the preacheron trial. They ha2e a trial and rip apart a man:s life/ ministry/ family/

    and reputation ust to brin! indictment a!ainst him. 9o you know howpeople ud!e a ministerJ By his fruitJ They say they do/ but really theydon:t. Most of them do not really care about his lon!e2ity or hisproducti2ity. The way modern -hristians ud!e leaders is by theirbelon!in!s. They don:t know them by their fruit or by their spirit but bythe car they dri2e/ home they own/ rin! they are wearin!/ or clothesthey ha2e. -ome on/ folks Cou and % know that it:s wron! to ud!e thisway. &ot only is it wron! to ud!e this way/ but the whole perspecti2ehas shifted from demon acti2ity to preacher acti2ity. How sad. % wonder

    how the ord puts up with such immaturity. Cou know/ don:t you/ thatthe de2il and his demons lo2e -hristians to be this wayJ Sure they do.4hile -hristians are watchin! all the smut and slander reports aboutdifferent ministers/ the de2il is !ardenin! in their backyard.

    et me remind you/ belie2er/ that the preacher is not your enemy oryour problem. Cour problem and your enemy is Satan8the accuser ofthe brethren and the father of lies. The scripture % quoted at thebe!innin! of this chapter told about seducin! spirits/ not seducin!

    people. The person you need to be worried about is you. The Bible sayshere that these seducin! spirits will cause some to depart KpurposelyabandonL the faith.
