Spirit Children

In the USA, statistics have shown that many parents and grandparents were killed by their own children and grandchildren. These children were either neglected by one or both parents. This is a perfect opportunity for the "Evil One" to begin his work in and through children. Often due to neglect, children are tormented by spirits of loneliness, rejection and hate; which eventually lead to the spirit of murder.

In Africa and other parts of the world, children who kill their parents or grandparents are called spirit children. But what is the true meaning of a spirit child? When I look at the Word of God, through the eyes of wisdom, by the Holy Spirit; I can clearly see that the true identity of a "spirit child" is a demonic spirit whose responsibility is to possess a child that has been abandoned by their parent or parents.

In Africa, such children who are possessed by or believed to be a spirit child are often avoided or killed because of the fear that the child will kill their parent(s) or grandparent(s). In the USA, parents and grandparents are naive to the fact that such spirits exist in their children and grandchildren and simply think the problem is medical. They try to solve the problem by giving the child different drugs and medications; while Africa's approach may be wrong in dealing with spirit children, they are aware that the problem exists.

How do we deal with a spirit child? Remember we are not fighting against flesh and blood, but against demonic and angelic spirits that resides on earth, under the earth, in the sea and in the heavens. Jesus Christ has given His children weapons of warfare. These weapons are found in:

Ephesians 6:11-17

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

The only way to stop a spirit child is to use our Authority in Jesus Christ. This is our God-given right! Faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to conquer these spirits. We must use our Authority, in Jesus Christ, to bind and cast the spirit child out of our children and grandchildren. We cannot assume that they will get better through medications or over time. A spirit child's only aim is to kill, steal, and destroy.
