This morning as I awoke I had a haunting picture on my mind I could neither understand nor get rid of. In my mind I was looking at a very small, seemingly white fox that stood a few meters in front of me. He was so small that he could have been easily overlooked unless the contrast between his bright appearance and a huge dark hole, even abyss, behind him would not have caused me to look a bit longer at him. He seemed to be so innocent, so small and unimportant, even so full of light. Yet the light was cold and its brightness made me feel repelled in a sense I have known before, especially during the last few weeks as the Lord has been teaching me more and more about how demons disguise as creatures of light. As I asked God several times about an interpretation of this strange pic, I only heard one Scripture in my mind’s ear that reads,
“Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom.” (Sg 2:10 ESV)
After hours of prayer, it got quite obvious to me that I have had to do with such of these seemingly harmless foxes lately, whether I met them in a very kind Christian woman or in a confused Christian man (not only these two, non-Christians as well, even many)… Lately the Lord opened my mind’s eye more and more so that I could see that several of my sufferings and stress had come from evil spirits with who I mainly had to do on the internet, whether it was on Facebook, in chats, here on my blog, or via emails only – or on the phone. These demonic spirits had tried everything to get me under their control, either by spamming me with emails or comments, or by entering our house without telling me before about it. As for the last event, I had a surprising visit by two Christians whom I knew not that closely from the internet. I had been cutting my plants down and was surprised as the door bell rang in the afternoon. I did not expect any visitor at that time and as I saw these two, the only thing I immediately felt was, “There is something wrong here…”
Basically, although they were not that long in our house, I was relieved as they had left it again. At first I thought about how “unloving” I was, not being able to love them as I should (having Christ’s Spirit in me). But as the hours passed, I felt more and more both threatened and confused. Indeed, hell broke loose and several demons attacked me day and night. Although these two people had left, the spirits that had guided them caused a lot of turmoil, esp. for me. To cut a long story short, we needed almost two weeks until the confusion was over because the contact was completely cut off and the demons were sent to where they had come from. At that time back in October I did not have the authority to do what I should have done immediately. However, meanwhile I have begun to split off with more and more people, whether old friends or only virtual “friends” on Facebook, whether relatives who are demon possessed are concerned – whoever. I only listen to the Lord now and I will keep doing so. And He just told me today, not as a tender and loving word, no, it was a command that pierced marrow and bone. Out of the blue while biking, I heard God’s voice that let me tremble with the fear of Him. I immediately realized that there must be a big danger about these things I took too lightly in the past. God said,
You shall no longer eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil!
And therefore I won’t let demons speak, through whomever they might try to reach out to me. Also, I keep in mind what the apostle John told us. These verses even began to burn in my heart as I, for the first time in my life, understood how essential continued obedience toward God’s voice is. John said,
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.” (2 Jn 7-11 ESV)
Just in case someone is interested in biblical symbolism regarding foxes, here is a short description I found on the net.
They do not go out for their food in the daytime, but wait till it begins to be dark; and then they kill all the animals they can find that are not too strong for them. Sometimes a large animal like the lion will hear the cries that they make when they are hunting, and will come and snatch away from them whatever they have found. These foxes or jackals have been known to scratch away the earth from graves that have been lately made, and then devour the bodies of the dead. This explains a verse in the sixty-second Psalm, where David says of those who “seek his soul to destroy it,”-“They shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes.” They eat plants of different kinds; sometimes roots, and sometimes fruits.
They eat the spiritual fruit of others although they themselves are not spiritual (they are yet fully carnal) and do not have Christ’s Spirit in them. As a confirmation of what I just told you, I am going to paste the proper Scriptures on this issue which Michael Clark once again found for me.
I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with immoral men; not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and robbers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But rather I wrote to you not to associate with any one who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber–not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:9-13 RSVA)
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he? (1 Corinthians 10:21-22 RSVA)
In return–I speak as to children–widen your hearts also. Do not be mismated with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Be’lial? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will live in them and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:13-18 RSVA)
In alignment with the subject of this article, I started with comment moderation today for I am not going to moderate comments that include demonic content anymore, as innocent as they might seem to others, though.
