Familiar Spirits

The Cage Of  Familiar Spirits By Pastor D.K Olukoya




I am praying for somebody here, any cage of darkness, fashioned against you shall be broken to pieces, in the name of Jesus.


Deuteronomy 18:9-12 – “When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”


God has banned consultation with familiar spirits. God has told us that familiar spirits are not our friends.


Isaiah 8:19 – “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?”


Isaiah 29:4 – “And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.”


There is a terrible group of spirits that are wicked to the core. They can be wicked, friendly or unstable as situation demands. Many are ignorant about them and they are mostly ignored and hidden. There is no human being who at one time or the other has not had a brush with those spirits.

● They are deadly, they can be stubborn, malignant. They have infiltrated practically all families.

● Familiar spirits counterfeit the works of the Holy Spirit and they defile.

● They constitute the most stubborn and destructive spirit wife and husband 2 Chronicles 33:6

● Familiar spirits are secretary spirits keeping track of our mistakes and blunders in order to track us in our pattern of sin.

● Familiar spirits can be ancestral spirits who attach curses to family lineages.

● They propagate trouble, they prolong troubles.

● Familiar spirits are medium spirits behind false prophets.

● They are key enemy spirits in our battle against deception because they are experts at igniting counterfeit sensations and move of the spirit.

● They produce empty-headed fantasies.

● They claim to conjure the spirits of the dead. And many have gone to claim that they are consulting the spirit of the dead.

● Familiar spirits are assigned by satan to individual or families.

● They are experts at manipulating their victims.

● They operate a spiritual phone line to give information about you.

● They are in charge of passing down evil traits, genetic diseases and evil inheritance.

They are raging now. Psalm 2.

No matter the rage of familiar spirits, we have the promise of God that that rage can be dashed to pieces like a potter’s vessel.


Leviticus 20:27 – It is not on every offence the Bible prescribes death sentence, but once the Bible prescribes death sentence, it means, that is the only way to stop them.


I am praying that every yoke of inherited familiar spirits shall be broken, in the name of Jesus.


Everyone here that is being monitored, controlled by familiar spirits, I command you to be set free by the power in the blood of Jesus.


God hates familiar spirits, God is against familiar spirits and He does not want His people to get involved in familiar spirits. God does not want His people to be tormented by familiar spirits, God wants His people to be people who are victorious all the time. But there are plenty of people; young and old who are being troubled, possessed, obsessed and harassed by familiar spirits.


Some sense them in their dreams. Some are revealed through prophets. Some, their parents told them. Some, they believe they are reincarnated children; so they do all kind of things to make them stay. Some believe they died and then came back.


All these are influence and power of familiar spirits and this is where we need to seriously pray. It is a serious matter when you are possessed with familiar spirits and you do not know.


(I am praying, the hand of God will arise for your sake and deliver you from every yoke of the enemy, in the name of Jesus.)


When familiar spirit is at work and you do not get yourself delivered from it, it can be the source of real problems. Beloveth, there is a place in God where defeat is not possible. Job 28:7


You should move yourself to God, get close to God so that the legal right of this wicked enemy can expire in any part of your life, in the name of Jesus.


===> I pray that, all the children that have been initiated into familiar spirits shall be set free, in the name of Jesus.

● Familiar spirits visits curses. They visit sins of the fathers on offspring. They visit unholy personal trait of the family. They propagate inherited sicknesses and diseases. They propagate evil habits and evil tendencies.


Familiar spirits are stronger than what you call environmental witchcraft but people ignore and overlook them. The major characteristics of the spirit is familiarity with a person or personality. Familiar means “well-known”

● When a person willfully or ignorantly forms a relationship with evil spirit, he or she has a familiar spirit.

● Anyone who becomes a channel of communication for evil spirits has a familiar spirit.

● Having familiar spirit is to be personally identified with a demon spirit like a demon guidance.

===> Every inherited familiar spirit will lose their hold upon your life, families, in the name of Jesus.

● Familiar spirits counterfeit the works of the Holy Spirit and they defile. Lev. 19:31


The world of familiar spirit beloveth is a world of deception, they believe that they are good people.


Contact with the dead is false. It is given for a man to die once. Hebrew 9:27.


If you are thinking you are contacting the dead, no! You are contacting a spirit which is familiar with that dead person. That is why, always seeing the dead is an evidence that you are being troubled by familiar spirits.


===> May every evil imagination be destroyed, in the name of Jesus.


When you seek for forbidden things or when good things is sought for in the wrong way, the enemy is quick to take advantage. You went to look for the fruit of the womb in the wrong place? The enemy takes advantage and give a child who is filled with familiar spirit. Visitation to magicians, sorcerers, diviners, witch doctors will make you acquire familiar spirits. Reading ungodly literatures make one to acquire familiar spirits. You can actually acquire familiar spirits by inheritance


Evidences That a Child Has Familiar Spirits

1. You have an imaginary playmates that others do not see.

2. Children whose food disappears from their plates.

3. All the taking of hard drugs causing hallucinations.

4. Bad music that gets people to misbehave.

5. Necromancy

6. Witchcraft or occultic interest

7. Sexual promiscuity

8. Stubborn spirit husband and spirit wife


An individual can actually have more than one familiar spirit.


The latin word “Familiaris” means household servant.


===> Any power, trying to track you shall be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.

Familiar spirits can be ancestral spirits. They are medium spirit behind false prophets. Many of the prophecies from false prophets are from familiar spirits. They are behind the power behind the signs and wonders of false prophets. Familiar spirits collects details of things like personal talents, neighbours, habits, resources, friends, enemies, mental abilities, weaknesses, tendencies, educational abilities, responses to various situations; they gather these information, so they know the person inside out. They become familiar with the person without being noticed. They then begin to maneuver their victims into some forms of manipulation by transferring files to their agents. And so, if you go there, they could tell you everything about you and you will wonder how they know all. In the spirit world, their assignment is to work in family bloodlines to turn the family member from the part of righteousness into everlasting punishment.


===> I pray that every rage of familiar spirit against you shall be scattered, in the name of Jesus.


When a person with familiar spirits dies, he or she transfers the evil mantle to another person. And they will stay with the bloodline until the bloodline dies out. If these familiar spirits are detected, renounced and casted out of the family member, they will enter into all kinds of things e.g live stocks, another family or any other thing to just stay around within the family.


The totality of the assignment of the familiar spirits is threefold.

1. Destiny abortion

2. Untimely death

3. Stubborn limitations.


Since the devil hates sisters and women very much, they need to pray very hard concerning this spirit. Satan’s agenda for women is to make them prostitutes, destitutes, useless, possessed, obsessed and oppressed and to kill them off as quickly as possible – You either fight or you perish.


Why Women Are Possessed by Familiar Spirits.

1 Pet. 3:7

4. She talks more.

5. Women are more timed and fearful

6. Women tends to believe things and are more trustworthy.

10. Satan knows that women controls the cradle.

11.Satan knows that women controls the womb.

The real truth is, if you gain the women, you gain the world.
