When people hear the word ‘perversion’ or ‘perverted’, they usually associate it with sexual sins. While this can be true, to pervert something actually means to twist or turn from a natural way of life. For example, satanism is a form of perversion of God’s truth (as well as all false religions and gods).
Yet, there’s another spirit that usually works with the spirit of perversion. That’s the spirit of whoredom. Whoredom creates the problem of idolatry. When both of these demons work together, the results can be disastrous.
The spirit of perversion is running rampant in today’s society. It’s in music, films, social media, and every other brainwashing tool you can think of. People have gotten so used to it that they don’t even notice the sin and perversion found in these forms of entertainment.
Then, the spirit of whoredom steps in and distorts the heart causing people to begin to worship these things. I’ve seen many young people chanting (or singing) lyrics to a song that was stuck in their head, not realizing that they were meditating on the glorification of sins. Music makes the youth think it’s cool to commit crimes, idolatry, and do drugs. It’s unfortunate and widespread in America.
With the glorification of such horrible lifestyles, children (and adults) begin to imitate the bad behavior without realizing that lifestyle leads to destruction. It’s a truly sad thing to see.
Not only does it affect their physical realm, but the spiritual as well. You see, when you put anything before God you are acting in the spirit of whoredom. The Lord refers to this as adultery unto Him and even the prostitution of your soul.
Opening The Door To The Spirit Of Perversion
Just like with any other spirit, there are ways to open the door to perversion and whoredom. Let’s take a look at these channels.
Lack Of Intimacy With God
It’s no surprise that the best way to steer clear of the spirit of perversion is to have a strong relationship with God. Just like a marriage, outside sources can steal your heart and mind away if you’re not careful. Therefore, praying, seeking, and studying God’s Word daily is necessary to be successful.
Lack Of Intimacy In A Marriage
God created sex and gave us guidelines for our urges to keep us safe and healthy. The way He tells us to practice sex is in a marriage with only our spouse in a respectful way. However, when a wife or a husband denies their spouse’s sexual advances it opens the door for an attack of the enemy.
“Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
– 1 Corinthians 7:5
The enemy has made it easy for someone to sin against their spouse and their own body. With the access of the internet found in everyone’s pocket, it’s no surprise that many marriages end up decimated by adultery.
If there’s one thing that gets my blood boiling, it’s the thought a child suffering in any form and in any way. To know that there are parents that actively harm their children is mind-boggling to me. Nevertheless, that’s something that happens every day. Because of that, many kids grow up and struggle with demons.
Does it surprise you that many prostitutes were sexually abused as children? When things of that nature occur, demons can latch onto those kids and follow them wherever they go.
Another way children can be led to follow these spirits is by the absence of a parent, both parents, or good role models. It’s important for children to see the way a marriage should be operated and what God intended when He created men and women. Without a biblical blueprint to follow, it’s easy to fall prey to satanic powers.
Viewing Explicit Material At A Young Age
The enemy does not want a child to be innocent and pure. He will do anything he can to expose a young child to all sorts of demonic stuff, including pornography. In today’s age, the enemy’s job is made easy for him through technology. While the technology itself isn’t bad, it opens up the realm for almost anything we can imagine. That’s why it’s important now more than ever to set up parental controls on the computer and television to protect and preserve the mind of the youth.
Dealing With The Occult
When someone messes with the occult, they’re opening the door for all sorts of devils and demons. Not only that, but they are actively committing adultery on the Lord. The different religions of the occult twist and pervert God’s Word and entice people to the dark side. They promise many earthly possessions and riches but take away any walk with God a person could have or want. In other words, you’re trading God’s plan for your life for theirs.
Symptoms Of These Spirits
These spirits are super destructive to the family and society. Marriages, homes, and children become broken by the power of these spirits. Here is a look at some different symptoms you can see when people are under these spirits:
- The person does not know who God is and lives in sin.
- They idolize things and people.
- They use their money for evil instead of blessing people with it.
- Churches begin to preach a false gospel.
- Embracing sinful sexual practices.
- Living in and spreading lies.
- Blatant hate for God and His Word
- A push toward the destruction of social norms.
We can see all these factors highly prevalent in today’s world. So many people hate God, worship money and sex, and want to destroy what the Bible teaches us. Christians are attacked every day all around the world and it’s made its way to the United States. The things society used to call good is now deemed as evil and what is evil is now deemed as good.
For example, abortion is celebrated and is even legal up unto the moment of birth in some states. Some states even advocate for infanticide. People are brainwashed into thinking that those things are good when they are actually very evil. The enemy will always start with the family because once it’s divided it’ll be easy to conquer.
Fighting The Spirit Of Perversion And Whoredom
This spirit takes hold of someone’s life through their mind. Therefore, we must fight the way the Bible tells us to.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.“
– 2 Corinthians 10:4-6
According to this scripture, the way we are to fight ungodly thoughts is by meditating on the Word of God, and replacing the devil’s lies with God’s truth. Make sure that Jesus is your Lord and submit to Him and His Will for your life. Then, examine your heart. Is there anything that you’re putting before God? Are you spending time in sin that God has clearly told you to let go? If you want to be free from this spirit, you must let go of these things right now.
Once you’ve done that, pray and rebuke these spirits.
“Lord, I ask you in the name of Jesus to forgive me for not putting You first in my life. I repent for not allowing You to be the Lord of my life. I reject and rebuke any lie the enemy has brought into my life. I tear down any idols that may exist in my life. I bind the spirit of perversion and whoredom and command them to leave, in Jesus’s name. Cleanse me from any evil that has resulted from these spirits. I praise You for the deliverance I needed. Thank You. In Jesus’s name, Amen.”
The spirit of perversion can cause many devastating and lasting effects. Therefore, be on the watch and protect your life and family from these destructive spirits. I pray you found this article helpful. If so, please share this content and comment below. As always, thanks for reading!
