Do you have demon oppression? Twenty Questions Guide

We are all here.
We are all here.

A life with demon tormentors is not fun. It is torment and oppression, with fear continually. They will try to pass themselves off as good, human, and your friend but nothing is FARTHER from the truth. They have a clear purpose that was taught by Jesus. In the first century, Jesus, the Son of God talked about demons on a number of occasions and here are a few…


“And coming down from Jerusalem, the scribes said, He has Beelzebub; and He casts out demons by the ruler of the demons. And calling them near, He spoke to them in parables, saying, How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house is not able to stand. And if Satan rises upon himself, and has been divided, he is not able to stand, but he has an end. No one, not any, having entered into his house, is able to plunder the vessels of the strong one, unless he first tie up the strong one; and then he will plunder his house. ” (Mark 3:22-27 LITV)

In this teaching Jesus said that demons can not cast out demons, and if they did their kingdom would not stand. Demons have a specific purpose and casting one another out is not it. But they will lie all of the time, in fact they cannot tell the truth. If you see their lips moving they are lying. If your belief system gets compromised through lies you will not know where to turn for freedom. Jesus taught that a thief enters a house to bind the strong man. If he succeeds he will plunder the whole house. If this happens to you, you still have the authority now to defeat him. Look at another teaching by Jesus.

“The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. ” (John 10:10 KJV)

The thief that Jesus is talking about is the devil, the fallen angels, the satan, the accuser of our brothers and sisters, and the evil authorities in your life that work night and day to cause rifts between friends and family members in order to isolate you. Now, look at Jesus’ teaching about the activity and habits of demons.

“But when the unclean spirit goes from a man, he goes through dry places seeking rest and does not find it. Then he says, I will return to my house from which I came out. And coming, he finds it standing empty, swept and decorated. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more evil than himself, and entering dwells there. And the last things of that man become worse than the first. So it will be also to this evil generation. ” (Matthew 12:43-45 GNB)

When the demon is cast out, it leaves your house, travels the family bloodlines looking for another place to sell its wares, and do wicked things, but if he does not find one he returns. If you have not replaced his empty place with God’s Spirit and new habits, he will come again and bring seven more evil friends with him. Now, you have complete authority over the demons, but you must take action to defeat them. As your heart and mind changes, you will stand free and motivated by new ways of thinking and new ways of living.

How do you know if you have a demon?  If you will answer the following twenty questions with a friend who can help you, it will be clear. If you need help with any demons you discover, I am available for a session and ministry. This list is not exhaustive but it will begin the process. Through the twenty questions that I will put in this post, you will be able to get a real good scope and sequence of the demonic influence in your life.

I have talked to literally thousands of people who have been delivered from the oppression of demons. Sometimes a demon hides and surfaces only when it suits him, or when he has an advantage. As a demon surrounds you, he will manifest to incite more and more anxiety, fear, and bondage. The end will be either your death or your deliverance. The choice is yours.

If you are having problems with the demonic there is hope, and a process for deliverance. Please email me for help at stevescroggs1@gmail.com. Blessings

Conquering Your Demons

NEW BOOK!!! This will help you.

I have never been one to believe that there was a demon behind every tree, and I am still of that persuasion, but there are times when I question the possibility of that belief. I have also heard some of my friends say, “The Devil made me do it!” and knew that they were just laying the blame for their choices at the feet of a demon. I also experienced a time or two when I was tempted to say, “You come out of that demon right now, and quit tormenting it!” I have dealt with many demons and they have all had the same purpose; to steal kill and destroy. They will tempt you and take you, if they can.

There may not be a demon behind every tree, but there was a demon in the Garden of Eden, behind the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil, when Eve walked up. In fact he was the first demon. His names include Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, the Enemy, the Serpent, the Great Dragon, and the Accuser of the brethren. Through the prophet Ezekiel, God the Father describes him like this:

Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so… Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. (Ezekiel 28:14-15)

When God made the Angels he made them in the heavens as beings of spirit and light. God refers to them as the sons of God when he spoke to Job.

Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind…”Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me if you have such insight. Who determined its dimensions? …Who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:1-7 GW)

As beings of his inception, they were created by him, through him, and for him. Yet he created them to have a choice. Although angels must agree with their creator to exist they were given the ability to choose. How that works I don’t know, but nonetheless, God said Lucifer was perfect from the day he was created until iniquity was found in him.

There are many words to describe how an angel in heaven can enter the sin of iniquity and violence fill his heart; but I don’t have time to discuss that revelation in this book. Jesus said,

You are the children of your father, the Devil …there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies. (John 8:44 GNB)

Therefore, lies are at the root of the spirit of iniquity. As you know, a lie is not always dark and grungy. A lie spins the truth to serve self and self’s ambition.

Lucifer was discontent with his created place as the anointed (he was given an anointing) cherub (he was given a position of purpose) that covered (he was given a place of authority) in the tabernacle in heaven, and he wanted more. What more could he want? He declared his desire to be like the one he saw; to be like God. (Isaiah 14:14) What could be better than being like God and have worshippers? All of his focus was for his own advancement, with no regard for what it would cost the angels or the humans who chose to follow him. It was in this state of ostentatious self elevation that he conceived the slyest lies. When an angel chose to follow Lucifer, he lost his eternal place in heaven and the eternal estate given to him by God.[1]

Lucifer was convinced that the best thing for him was to promote himself to be like God by converting angels into his followers and worshippers. This was a very seductive and enticing scheme that stands at the very core of the sin of iniquity. It was in this state of deception that he conjured lies to convince one-third of the hosts of heaven to follow him.[2] As the statement among humans goes, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” The discounted heart will open the soul of man to Lucifer’s temptations and demonic torment.[3]

The strategy he used with the angels he also used in the Garden of Eden with Eve. And the angels that follow him are still using these same strategies with you today. They can’t twist your arm and make you do anything, but they can talk to you. If you listen, you will hear a lie. Then you will make up your own mind to act. The choice will always be yours and you will be responsible for your action.

Just as you have a guardian angel to watch over and protect you, you will also have familiar (family) spirits; demons that travel blood-lines to visit the sins of the fathers to the third and fourth generation. These demons will not usually look like the comic book portrayals, unless they realize that the monster image will help them terrify you, but they will usually be disguised as beings that want to “help” you get what you want. The truth is, in this world you will have tribulation, but you are made to be more than a conqueror. Take the witness of the Son of God, who said,

These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.’[4]

The key to the power to conqueror is in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus in the New Testament is the fulfillment of Jehovah that was revealed in the Old Testament. When you have a personal relationship with him, you will receive an eternal perspective about the spirit realm and how it works. Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts will fight hand in hand with you until you live in complete peace and victory.[5] will you learn in this book will give you a strategy to defeat the fallen demonic hordes, behind whatever tree you may find them.

Free Book to Walk free of demons

In the last days God says, “My spirit will fall on all flesh.” (Acts 2) Do you think we will see his spirit or just see the results? Like the wind blowing through the trees. You can’t see the wind, but you can see the effects. The following link will be your free book. Let me know what you experience.

Working Through Deliverance With Holy Spirit a workbook

In the imagination and through the soul we engage the realm of the spirit, where the holy
and unholy angels travel. Jesus said that Lucifer was a liar and the Father of lies. This means he cannot tell the truth. When he speaks he lies. This means all of his fallen angels lie as well. They come to steal from you, kill anything they can, and destroy everything in your life. They are not your friend and they will not help you. Even when you think a demon is telling the truth, it will be a lie. Unclean spirits are master liars and act like good accusatory lawyers.

Where we are living contrary to the word of God (in sin and disobedience), they bring
accusation, and work to condemn us before God and others. They will try to take us to law and exercise judgment as a District Attorney. Fear is one of the fastest ways to give a dark spirit or a demon access to your life.

Jehovah Sabaoth is the Lord of Hosts, meaning that He is the master of all hosts in heaven and earth. Hosts of humans, birds, animals, angels, and demons. Every demon must be submitted to him and his word. (Job 1:6; 2 Chronicles 18:18) Therefore, we must stay close to God and exercise faith in his love and grace. Jesus was revealed to destroy all of the works of the enemy. (1 John 3:8) Take a minute and receive perfect love of God that will cast out all fear. (1 Timothy 1:7)

Demons cannot be seen with the natural eye, but the results of their influence can be seen.
Just because you cannot see something doesn’t mean that it cannot affect you. When I go to the beach, the unseen ultra-violet rays burn my lily white skin.

When you think over and over again about the way people have hurt you, or how afraid
you are; you move into a place where your heart resents and even hates the life you were given. Then you have a bitter taste in your mouth for yourself and others. It is fear, rebellion, bitterness, resentment, and sexual sin that open the doors of your heart to a demon spirit’s influence.

A young man came in one day hat had excessive fear about his life, and the life he
thought everyone was trying to take from him. The fear coupled with the unforgiveness opened a door to dark spirits.

These confessions mixed with faith will break each spirit’s power.

In the name of Jesus and by the power of his blood, I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
over all creation, and I submit to him right now. Lord God, I take the authority you have
given me, and by the power of the blood of Jesus, I command any and every unclean
spirit in me to be bound in Jesus’ name and to leave my life now! I renounce any
involvement with them, and any participation with them, and any agreement that I have
ever had with them. Unclean spirit, I do not need you, I do not want you, and I command
you to leave my life now, in Jesus’ name.’ Go now, before the throne of God, and give an
account of yourself, and do not return to me in Jesus name!’

Lord Jesus, I agree with you that I have lived in fear. But from this moment, I renounce
the spirit of fear and I receive a spirit of power love and a sound mind. I choose right
now to receive your perfect love to fill me. I confess any unforgiveness as sin, and I choose to forgive anyone who has ever hurt me. I choose to live in a spirit of forgiveness from this day forward.

Lord Jesus, will you please send the Holy Spirit to fill me, and send your healing light
into my heart, my soul, my body, and my life right now, please? I receive the Spirit of
holiness, the spirit of burning and justice, with power and might, to guard me in all the
places of my heart and soul. Thank you Lord Jesus. I affirm my confidence and faith in
Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross right now in the name of Jesus, AMEN!


We are all here.
We are all here.

One day I received a call from a mother. It was late and her boy had just come home. She remembered her son as a vibrant youth that graduated from high school with honors, and worked as a paint contractor with her husband, a building contractor. He had been a normal teenager who rebelled against his parents. Before he was out of his teenage years, he took a turn for the worst, experimented with drugs and alcohol among friends and ended up hooked. After graduation he went through a couple of drug and substance abuse programs, and had kept the pain of the soul and his demons at bay until he entered his early twenties. However, the young man she saw at her front door was not the son she remembered. When he came home, he had been using drugs for almost 18 years. In the last few years he had used up all of his friends, ripped off several construction sites and betrayed his family members so many times that he had burned every bridge for help. After years of being on the streets, getting drugs whenever and however he could, committing unmentionable crimes and sins, he was standing at her door, a 70 pound shell of emptiness. The demons had almost killed him, and this was not the first time they had tried. She said, “My son has come home, will you come and help us?” My Associate Pastor and I went over and began to minister to him. After about a two hour cleansing and deliverance session the demons were gone and he was free. He slept for days.


A Rising Spiritual Power

The Sons of God in a Dark World
The Sons of God in a Dark World

In more than thirty years of ministry, I am seeing more angelic activity, more demonic torment, more dreams and visions reported, more demonic faith, more spiritual night mares, and more powerful deliverance with sustained freedom in my counseling appointments than at any other time. Isaiah the prophet, who is more accurate than Nostradamus, prophesied these things almost 2500 years ago:

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. (Isaiah 60:1-3 KJV)

All across America, and around the world, there is a rising tide of spiritual hunger, spiritual awareness, and spiritual power that is working as yeast through a lump of dough. The souls of men and women are being activated. This includes people I have met from around the world; Africa, Egypt, India and China.

One young believer laid his life on the line every day in Cairo, Egypt. He noticed the police watching him, as if on a stake-out. One night after a meeting he started home at dusk, when the police began to pursue him. He started to run for his life. Up the stairs to the roof top, he began jumping from roof top to roof top, and then into an old hiding place. This room was secure, he thought, until the pursuing police and a few town officials busted through the door. This room had never been compromised before. His hands went up as his heart began to thank God for the privilege of being persecuted for him. There were city officials with the police this time. The officials commanded the police officers to leave them and go back to the station. This seemed highly unusual to this young man. After the police officers left and only he and the officials remained, the leader of the officials said, “Each of us have had a vision of Jesus Christ, and he told us who he was and that he was the only God. We have renounced Islam and the Muslim faith. Will you take us to your meetings?” They all went that night and joined a group in an underground meeting; and joined the church of Jesus Christ. No religion can keep God from speaking to people.

Many are seeing God as he really is while others are multiplying the lies and deception surrounding the Spiritual realm and the ministry of light and dark angels. In this book I want to bring to your attention to many insights, knowledge and understanding in the scripture, that show the source of demon activity, reveal the strategy of the enemy, show the power of the accuser, and demonstrate the authority you have for deliverance. The Lord God spoke this to his servant Hosea the prophet.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children. (Hosea 4:6)

These existed before time and space!
These existed before time and space!

You are living in a society that has cast off the knowledge of God, the laws of God and the desire to even know them. They have taken prayer out of the schools, the Ten Commandments out of the courts, and the scriptures out of the classroom. Corruption is at an all time high; from the highest seat in government to the lowest station in the workplace. You and I live somewhere in between these two posts. Although Hosea 4:6 is a word from God to Israel some 2300 years ago; God has not changed and his word is still accurate and effective. If you want to be free from the torment of demons, only the forgiveness of the blood of Jesus, the authority of the word of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit will set you free, but you will have to agree with God. Demons are on a rampage through the flesh of every country on earth. Many people have more faith for the power of demons than for the person and work of Jesus Christ. Therefore, a curse of anxiety, panic, paranoia, and fear is unprecedented in the hearts of the people. The heart of the matter is what you believe. The fear of the unknown, a natural human reaction to the introduction to the Spirit realm, ranks up there in the list of Top Ten Tactics used by your unseen enemy.
