Personality Traits or Familial Spirits?
Many of us have certain traits that are part of our personality make-up or nature. These traits or patterns are familial in the sense that they tend to run in our family line. Some people are shy, some are controlling, and others are particular. We tend to laugh off these quirks of nature as they are so common, yet they can negatively affect our functioning. Personality traits are often seen as one’s temperament which is biological in nature. Some of these are there from early childhood and can result in personality disorders. They are labeled as disorders since they manifest as difficulties in relationships and impair day-to-day functioning. Many are able to observe these tendencies in others but are blind to them in themselves.
In the spiritual realm, there are familial spirits or demonic attachments. These need to be distinguished from personality traits. Or could it be we are dealing with the same thing? Exorcise demonic attachments from the person, many are afraid to mention this as there is a lot of ignorance about demonic infestation. The devil hides behind personality traits. First, identify the demonic entities as such, and then it is possible to drive them out. Jesus dealt with demons all the time. And His main mission was to destroy the works of the devil and set the captives free.
There is a way out of your predicament. Seek the Lord to help you discern these invaders who have no place in your life since you are a redeemed child of God. Demons attach themselves to your soul. They manifest themselves in irrational behavior or stubbornness. They may also interfere with your thought life. Furthermore, they cause certain compulsive activities such as addictions, for example to sex, drugs, pornography, and self-hatred, resulting in suicidal tendencies. There is no solution but the blood of Jesus. You can cast out these entities. And distance yourself from these familial tendencies, by driving out the demons in Jesus’s name. You have to persist in this till you are free. This is self-deliverance. Be free today in Jesus…and live!
