10 Mistakes People Make with the Demonic (plus 1 bonus):

1. Think that demons are a figment of the imagination / don’t exist (materialists). (Luke 22:3)

2. Are overly consumed by the demonic (have a demon “under every rock / behind everything” mentality).

3. Think Satan’s power is equal to God’s (that’s like an ant versus the bottom of your boot). (1 John 4:4b)

4. Try to deal with the demonic in their own strength. (Acts 19:13-17; Philippians 4:13)

5. Have no clue that Jesus disarmed the entire demonic realm via the crucifixion and cross. (Colossians 2:15)

6. Don’t realize it is the power behind ouija boards (it’s not just a children’s game for a slumber party).

7. Don’t realize how 99.9% of UFOs, “close encounters,” etc, are really the demonic in masquerade mode.

8. Forget that it is through prayer in the name of Jesus that the demons must flee. (James 2:19)

9. Overlook considering demonic influence (participation) in the affairs of the State (government).

10. Have no clue that the entire planet is under the control of the demonic and their leader (the devil). (Ephesians 2:1-2; 1 John 5:19)

BONUS Overlook their battle with them at a personal level (could it be demons are directly assailing you and not because of any ungodliness on your part?). (Job 1: 1-22; 2:1-13)
