The Insidious Work of Familial Spirits

Updated: Jul 27, 2021

We recently received word about some siblings who are connected to our ministry who all received a COVID-19 positive diagnosis at the same time. To our knowledge they had not recently been with each other. This seemed suspicious and we began to discern that this was the wicked work of a familial spirit (not familiar spirit). A familial spirit works within bloodlines and family units. This familial spirit was working on the body realm. It was working using the soul’s empathy to cross over from one sibling to another. “You're my sister. I love you. And you have got COVID and now I am so empathetic or sympathetic to you and in that empathy or sympathy, the familial spirit crosses over to the other sibling.

The soul’s empathy is a pathway. Empathy AND sympathy are pathways (in the soul realm). Empathy says, ‘This is how we do family. Therefore, we are a family. We empathize and sympathize.’ It is almost like a false covenant or an oath where it says in the family line, ‘I've got your back,’ or ‘I’ve got your back brother,’ but it is ungodly.

It results in a false judgment that says, “This is why we're family, because we empathize.” No, we are NOT a family because we empathize and sympathize, but because God made us a family. The familial spirit is playing on that. It plays on the emotions. It uses the emotional realm. It is twisting the emotional realm so that ‘I am so emotive toward you and your sad situation that it crosses over from one family member to the other and that is wicked. The soul can do that. It is like a soul tie but really it is a soul bridge. It is a result of not knowing how to relate via the human spirit to one another, rather than the soul.

Holy Spirit said this, “It is what is behind ‘blood is thicker than water’, but blood is NOT thicker than water. Water is spirit. Spirit is actually stronger than the blood. Spirit makes brothers and sisters in the spirit, but blood is just blood[1].

We could sense that the Father was uncovering something for us and we realized we needed a tutor. We wanted to learn about family and the spiritual dynamics of a family and how the enemy uses the natural dynamics of a family.

We were instructed to go to the Help Desk where we requested a tutor to instruct us on how the enemy uses the phrase ‘blood is thicker than water’. We requested a tutor on the twisting of that truth.

The attendant then gave Donna a pass to a classroom on the sixth floor of the complex and we went to a classroom on the sixth floor. A man came in whose name (as best as could be determined) was Taylor. Donna explained that she wanted to understand.

The Problem

Taylor summarized what Donna was seeking saying, “You want to understand the pathways the enemy uses in the soul realm to travel on to family members to do destruction in their realms.” He continued, “Family dynamics play a part in things that cross over things that cross between family members.

“The cross over is a release of an energy designed by God for the love of mankind for those in their closest clan and tribe who are physically related. They have a resonance of similarity. How wickedness and darkness use this, is that wickedness seeks a pathway along this energy line–this frequency–this resonance line to capture the whole tribe to bring it to a destruction, and primarily to stop it from advancing, expanding, and maturing. So, a familial spirit is assigned to a family line to wreak havoc through doors of iniquity. The familial spirit uses the emotion of the soul realm to accomplish this infiltration. It is an infiltration of deception, untruth, and the propagation of iniquity to destroy and remove the tribe, the clan, and the family.

“Veiled humanity not operating from awakened spirits suffer due to these familial spirits in operation against their family’s calling and destiny. Associations of the soul realm can easily be hijacked by the familiar spirit. It is like a wrangling of the individual soul realms to emote from the natural realm only. It is tracking through the soul realm. It advances through the soul realm. You call these soul ties. There are a few godly soul ties. For instance, mother and child, father and son that are in place in time and season.

The Methodology

“Then there are ungodly soul ties which are used by darkness. They are propagated by darkness and for the purpose of the limitation of the individual being the family, the clan, and then the tribe and it is an attempt to shut down the spirit of a man awakened to God, operating from spirit realms in association through the son of God, Jesus.

“Natural events and all things natural, physical plane circumstances, events, happenings, plans, everything in that realm is subject to manipulation by this familial spirit. Those trapped by ungodly soul ties are tethered to one another. He familiar spirit has a tether to the soul places, and he just pulls the tether to cause torment at any time because he has the tethers or the reigns in his hands.

“He is using something God created which is love for family, but he has distorted it. The distortion is when the family is not surrendered to God and walking in humility. They walk in rebellion or pride or the knowledge of the wrong tree’s fruit. They are operating from that.

“This is what is behind the phrase you have that is referred to when someone says, ‘Our four and no more’. It is the soul realm in operation, and it is very vigilant to make just the blood relatives their focus. It is very divisive, but what it does is it turns on you and eventually it makes you very exclusive. It is exclusive, not inclusive. In partnership with the religious spirit, it makes you want to pray for just your family members, not your neighbors. It is very inward looking and is only concerned with just those in your circle. It is not broad and releasing. It makes you where you do not even want prayer from other people if they are not related to you. Anyone on the outside of the family is suspect.

“It is a dark evil vortex. What it does is when operating in a family unit, is it does not release and promote the destiny and purpose of the spirit man in a being. Rather, it corrals and says, ‘Your resources are my resources, and we are not going to let the outside in’. When a family member tries to break out of this, they find great trouble. The demon is pulling the tethers.

“So, if you want to go do your own way, because you have been called by God to go do a thing and you want to break out of this family, then the demon holding that familial spirit, holding those tethers, he just ramps that up and that person never feels like they achieve their God given destiny. They have not because the familial spirit has corralled them with these tethers, and he has such a grasp on the emotions of the other people that they are not in agreement that you should go do that thing God called you to do.

“What helps to break this is the spirit of a man becoming awakened to the things of God and seeking after the Kingdom to the point where he is willing to do whatever it takes so that he accomplishes his God-given destiny. Even if he must leave the family that is trying to control him through the familial spirits’ operation, preventing his destiny from manifesting.

“Familiar spirits use the souls’ emotive pathways to corral, bind, capture, destroy, postpone, and delegitimize the call of God on the individual. Many destinies are lost or are unfulfilled because of this. This is so entrenched that you will have people come to blows about this before they are willing to accept that this is an outside evil force at work on the family. You will not be able to convince them because they are blinded to it, and they are under the sway of the tethers that the demon holds. So, there must be disagreement with the manipulation of the familial spirit.”

The Solution

“So, what would be the Courts of Heaven method to advocate for someone involved in this or under this evil?” Donna asked.

Taylor replied, “What you need to obtain are verdicts and judgements against the familial spirit, the overturning of an ownership claim on the family line by the familial spirit. The familial spirit has an ownership claim on the family. Also, repentance for those who have fallen into deception to agree with the lies of the familial spirit. For agreeing with the saying, ‘It is our four and no more! We support each other, but nobody else!’

“One of the repentances is, ‘God is not for us, so we will be for ourselves. God is not behind us. God is not capable. He is not interested in us, so we will do this ourselves’. It is an attitude of independence from God born out of separation or trauma of separation from Him and believed by patriarchs of the family line that God will not come through for you. These patriarchs of the family line believe something about God's character. They believe God was like a man and that He could be bought, and cajoled, and paid off–basically that God was untrustworthy and that He could be bought.

“So, these patriarchs, through whatever trauma they had suffered, even though their belief that invited trauma goes all the way back to the tower of Babel and even further than that. It goes back to the lie of Satan that you can be God apart from God and back to the lie of Satan that you made yourself, you are alone and are responsible for your own existence. That would be antichrist. It is completely godless. It is self-idolatry. ‘I am God. I can do what I want.’

“So,” the tutor said, “you see there is total lack of humility there. This is tied to a capture from Baal. It goes back to Cain, who essentially said, ‘I will do things my own way. I don't have to please God.’

Donna noted, “It's fascinating to me to look at the layers of this (the operation of the is familial spirit) like an onion. It is not immoral. It does not have that spirit on it. It is not really what you consider typical rebellion. It is more ‘I don't need you God’ type of thing (which really is rebellion), but it is not like a snubbing your nose at God. It is just like ‘God, you're nothing to me. I don't need you’. It is a real inward exaltation of self.

For that to be the root no wonder the tutor said there is a lack of humility. There is zero humility. When we go look at all the different things you could repent for to begin to loosen the familial spirit that is using emotive pathways on the surface, there is a flavor of manipulation. The tutor calls it in an aroma of manipulation, for when you are without God, you are subject to a lot of fear. He said, “This goes so deep. It goes to the statement, ‘God, you got are not responsible for my breath’. It is very humanistic.”

With the information we had received we began to do some courtroom repentance on behalf of the siblings related to our ministry. This is how we prayed:

We repent for where they may have stepped into agreements without understanding all that these agreements entailed. We repent for rebellion and independence. We repent for where they allowed empathy to create bridges or pathways that allowed familial spirits to cross over.

We request access to the Court of Records and ask that the entry of the COVID-19 prognosis or diagnosis would be blotted out from their pages and that health would be restored for them and their whole family and that it would manifest for them immediately, in Jesus’ name.

We also repent for agreement with fear regarding COVID.

We repent for anyone in their family agreeing with the projection of the future through the lens of fear. We call that agreement with fear sin because we are not given a spirit of fear.

We repent for those caught in the lies and deceptions of the spirit of fear regarding COVID in the bloodline. As blood related individuals, we repent on their behalf and asked that Jesus would cover that sin with His blood and asked that they would be free.

We request cleansing and purification for them. We request that their spiritual sight and their spiritual ears would be opened. We request that their spiritual giftings would come forth and we request that angels would be sent to help them throw off the burden of this deception through the spirit of fear.

We also repent where the bloodline iniquity says, ‘God does not uphold my breath’. We repent for it in the blood, in the DNA, for all open doors throughout history regarding that iniquity all the way back to the hand of the Father in the generational bloodline. We ask that you hear our repentance Father on their behalf as we repent identificationally. We call that belief sin as you call it sin because the Word of God is true, and the Word of God says that you uphold our breath. We declare that it was Yahweh Elohim who gave Adam breath and upheld his being. Yahweh is the originator of breath.

We repent for any bloodline iniquity that says otherwise. We confess it as sin. We ask that the blood of Jesus would cover this in the entire bloodline of all family members related in Jesus' mighty name.

We request that times of refreshing be released to these families.

We pronounce blessing on them saying, “We bless them with Your blessing. Jesus. We bless them with Your health. We bless them with the fact that You uphold them with your strong right arm.”

Where they have come into agreement with fear, we repent. We ask that they would be free of the fear of the COVID-19 nano virus and be free of its potential impact.

We request the amendment of ‘As if it never were’ to extend back to prior to the onset of any symptoms, in Jesus' name.

We request angels to be released to them to minister to them, in Jesus' name.

We ask that Heaven would give them a new thought–a new way of thinking as a family toward one another.

We ask for the angels to help them guard their mouth.

We ask that they would be given the gift of belief and trust and faith and that they would guard their mouths against alignment with the enemy.

[We know the Bible says life is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11), but we are finding out that life is also in the water! The spiritual water–the living water, that was poured out after Jesus ascended.
