Trouble Understanding the Bible Can Be Demonic

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.” – Eph. 6:12

Here is another possible sign of demonization: difficulty getting into the Bible. Over the years, I have come across many people who had issues with reading the Bible. The person can have trouble understanding or grasping the word or retaining what was just read. Some may have a cloudy mind or automatically fall asleep when attempting to study the scriptures. It could seem like there is some kind of hindrance to really digging into the Bible. What could be really going on?

If you are seriously struggling to study the Bible, it very well could be something demonic going on, especially when you have no struggle with reading anything else. This can be directly attributed to demonization (where a demon or demons are indwelt), and most people open the doors to demonization by practicing sin. The enemy wants to try to deprive believers from growing in the precious word of God (the enemy knows the importance of knowing God’s word). Just as the enemy blinds the minds of people to believe in the Gospel (2 Cor. 4:4), he can somehow blind some peoples’ minds to understand the bible. Indeed, primarily the battlefield takes place in the mind.

I would recommend receiving prayer for deliverance, especially if it’s a persistent problem. Some people also say it is easier to read and understand the Bible after receiving deliverance. They report feeling relief from a cloudy mind, thus their mind is clearer.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.

If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):

“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”

    Can you please pray for me? I’m 15 and I think I’m under spiritual attack; I have a lot of self hate and guilt and mental torment, repeated dark thoughts that I can’t control, like that God is mad at me and I can’t do anything right and I’m a failure, that God has abandoned me and is punishing me. I know those things aren’t true but I can’t stop thinking them. I also get voices (not audible voices, rather thoughts that feel apart from my own that rise up out of nowhere) saying blasphemous things about Jesus and it makes me so upset because I love Him more than anything, or at least I want to, and I don’t really believe those things. I ask for forgiveness from God when that happens and for help to stop thinking those things, and it stopped for a while but now it’s back. I see the number 6, 66, or 666 more often than other numbers it seems like, and I know that’s the number of the beast. But the thing that affects me most that I believe may be spiritual attack is constant exhaustion, this tiredness that I could best describe as feeling like I’m being swallowed up. I don’t have the energy to do basic everyday things, no matter how much sleep I get or what I eat. Nearly every day, I find myself asking God for forgiveness for wasting another day being lazy and not doing anything productive, because I’m just so physically exhausted all the time.
    Please pray for my mom too, as she’s experiencing suffering that she believes to be demonic too. And for our relationship, that we can stop fighting.
    The issues in my family are too much to get into, but something worth noting is that my mom and I are the only Christians in our family, and most of them express hate towards Christians. And two of them, we’re almost positive, are Satanists. We normally don’t talk to most of them, but since my sweet Poppop died suddenly in a tragic accident a few months ago (please pray for him too as he didn’t live a Christian life either) we’ve all had to come together to help my widowed Nana. By “we all,” I mean basically 90% my mom and I. While we want to help because she’s an elder family member in need, it’s difficult because of gas prices to drive to and from her house, and she treats my mom quite poorly. The others always make excuses not to help and stress Nana out. And even my Nana who I love dearly and pray for daily, (If you could too that would be appreciated) has gotten very angry at us mentioning Jesus and has recently told us of a seemingly demonic supernatural experience she had that she believes was my Poppop visiting her. And this I can’t really explain well, but I feel something bad in my spirit when I’m in the presence of any of them or in their houses.
    I have a lot of anxiety and depression on a daily basis.
    If you have any Spiritual advice please give it to me. Otherwise just pray. And if you could, just reply so I know you saw this. You don’t need to address everything I said, but just let me know you saw it. Sorry for the long comment

    M k.. are you or were you addicted to any compulsive behavior before? It maybe the doorway for this demonic turment, please do not hate your self rather keep this in mind that no one is above demonic attacks though Jesus ‘s demonic attacks was not in this dimension but I can all both the wind on the sea, the Jaws leaders attacking upto His death on the cross was all demonic that the reason why the bible says in 1Cor 2:8 that if the princes of the world know they wouldn’t have crucified the lord of glory, do you apostle Paul went through same experience his’ is more similar to your situation 2Cor 12:7 those things should not Ware you down but lift up because in the realm of the spirit the higher the residence the more power God supply, but don’t take this experience of yours for granted, do you know that when Peter was sinking as he was walking on the sea if he did not call for help 🆘 and if Jesus did not intervened he would have sink and die that the enemy mean business but Jesus said be of good cheer course I have overcome the world for you.

    Key to victorious outcome of these demonic persecutions is to hold onto the faith in Jesus and clear conscience, let everything you are doing be done in the light

    Nelson: Constant preyer and fasting life, Matthew 17:21 this kind cannot go except with prayer and fasting,

    Reading of Jesus’s words in the bible as if your life depends on only it, I mean eat it over and over
