Spirits of Addiction: Wicked, Robust and
Not Picky
cc: DarkElfPhoto - https://www.flickr.com/photos/12925338@N07
The terms "addict", "my addiction" and "addictive
personality" are tossed around liberally today

Have you ever attended an AA (Alcoholics Anonymous),
NA (Narcotics Anonymous) or similar type of meeting?
cc: rachelakelso - https://www.flickr.com/photos/47864451@N00
You will invariably see a large contingent of folks
milling about outside smoking cigarettes
cc: Valentin.Ottone - https://www.flickr.com/photos/24450277@N06
Those of us who try to minister in the spiritual realm contend
that what you are witnessing is a spirit of addiction at work
cc: 29cm - https://www.flickr.com/photos/53423448@N00
People are at these meetings because they want to
be set free from the torment of addiction.
cc: Caucas' - https://www.flickr.com/photos/20993292@N08
A spirit of addiction has deep roots and pruning one or more
branches does not typically yield lasting and complete results
cc: Arenamontanus - https://www.flickr.com/photos/87547772@N00
Smoking cigarettes is arguably less destructive than ingesting
cocaine, none would describe this as real freedom.
cc: Dazzie D - https://www.flickr.com/photos/21033592@N00
Coping or managing is not part of the great victory on the cross
where Christ took up all of our infirmities and afflictions.

What is a "spirit of addiction"?
It is a demon spirit that resides in a person's soul and its
purpose is to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10)

Remember Pinocchio?
cc: ChrisyJewell - https://www.flickr.com/photos/17896145@N07
The only remedy for spirits is to be
delivered from them
cc: musiclver05 - https://www.flickr.com/photos/28282182@N02
Self-deliverance and starving demons out
are options
cc: Gustavo Devito - https://www.flickr.com/photos/63765222@N02
Deliverance ministry from another
believer is often the key! (Mark 16:17)
cc: knowhimonline - https://www.flickr.com/photos/68278595@N00
One residential treatment center has two
rules: deliverance first and no smoking
cc: custom_tshirts - https://www.flickr.com/photos/100966175@N04
Treating the symptoms is like cutting of a
weed at ground level
cc: surfneng - https://www.flickr.com/photos/19695731@N00
If you know someone battling addiction,
prayer consider the following five actions:
cc: woodleywonderworks - https://www.flickr.com/photos/73645804@N00
1. Don't call the person an addict or tell
them they have an addictive personality
cc: andrechinn - https://www.flickr.com/photos/16167252@N00
2. Don't let the "my addiction" phrase slide
cc: Leo Reynolds - https://www.flickr.com/photos/49968232@N00
3. Proactively engage in "binding and
loosing". Matthew 16:19
cc: Leo Reynolds - https://www.flickr.com/photos/49968232@N00
4. Pray for revelation and understanding that
addiction is a spiritual issue and not medical
cc: Leo Reynolds - https://www.flickr.com/photos/49968232@N00
5. When the timing is right, pursue competent
deliverance ministry as part of the process
cc: Thomas Rousing Photography - https://www.flickr.com/photos/43812360@N05
Jesus came to set the captives free! Get
in touch with us!
