Defeating The Python Spirit

Symptoms you might be under attack from a Python Spirit:

  1. You’ve been feeling an unusual tightness or a heaviness in the atmosphere around you
  2. Python spirit can move through anger, intimidation, fear, and strife
  3. Python spirit likes to team up with Jezebel spirit to control
  4. You have a loss of spiritual desire (it feels like you are just going through the motions)
  5. Physical fatigue/attacks of sickness
  6. A “lack attack”. This spirit will try to drain your finances to get your focus on worry/money and off of God
  7. A weakening prayer life
  8. Unusual despair and hopelessness (Can even manifest in suicidal/depressive thoughts). Can also feel like a numbness
  9. You are noticing disunity in your relationships
  10. You feel like you are unable to be connected to the (healthy) church (it will try to isolate)
  11. You feel distracted
  12. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but it feels like you might be “missing something.” (This spirit loves to cause deception—> especially in leadership)
  13. Migrates towards “religion” and “phariseeical mindsets”
  14. Tries to destroy/confuse leadership (This spirit knows if it can get the leadership to fall, the flock underneath them will suffer, as well)
  15. There is an area of disobedience in your life that you have not addressed. (Unforgiveness, not following through on what God told you to do, etc.) —> This can open doors to attack from python spirit
  16. It tries to stop the move of the spirit (this is why it loves religion and “man’s” structure-the spirit of God doesn’t have the freedom to do what it wants)
  17. Part of the deception piece is this spirit loves to operate through false prophecy; make sure you aren’t believing a lie by comparing the spoken words you have received to the written Word of God

How to defeat the Python Spirit:

  1. “Submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” -James 4:7 Deal with any known areas of sin in your life, repent, and THEN rebuke/resist the devil and He will flee.
  2. Ask God to show you any areas where you have been deceived in your personal life
  3. Forgive anyone that you are holding unforgivness towards
  4. Use the word of God as a weapon. If God shows you any areas that you have been deceived in, find scripture in the areas he shows you and speak it out loud over your situation
  5. Take authority over the python spirit. Remember: “Verily I say unto you, whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be what has been bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be what has been loosed in heaven.”- Matthew 18:18
  6. “Put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.” -Isaiah 61:3 Praise and worship is a powerful weapon-worship your way through!
  7. Pray in your prayer language if you have one
  8. Don’t neglect the place of prayer (And make sure you are getting still-listen for the voice of God and still all distractions) “Be STILL and know that I am God.” -Psalm 46:10
  9. Stay under Godly, healthy authority (or get plugged into it if you don’t have it in your life right now)
  10. Use wisdom with your relationships you are yoking yourself to-if individuals are caught in religion/pharisaical tendencies be careful to distance yourself, because this is an open door for the enemy. (Stuff rubs off!) *Ask God to show you if YOU have any of these tendencies currently going on in your life. Many of us will encounter some of these at one point or another, but we have to be careful not to let them take over
  11. Posture yourself in a stance of humility. If you do not think there is anything wrong with you/you do not think you have a need to repent of your sins, pride will keep the door to this spirit open and active in your life.
