I have always been sensitive to spirits sense I was very young. I have been a Christian since I was 18, I am 29 now. I haven't always had a very close relationship as I wished to with God until a few years ago, and I have felt led into the ministry of deliverance this past year. Recently, around 4 months ago, I have been encounter with more spirits, and have learned to identify them. These are generally negative spirits. Before this, I was mostly encountered by spirits that others were weighed down with. Once I am encountered, the feeling is heavy in the spirit, and I seem to always have to pray them away from my presence, or they linger. I can feel their desire to become attached to me. I am only wondering if this a sign of spiritual warfare, or if this is education in identifying the many negative spirits that lurk around in order to grow in the ministry of deliverance. I've always known about discernment of spirit because of experiencing the sensitivity young, but never have thought it would be as intense as this. Some of these spirits seem more difficult than others, and put up more of a fight. Multiple ones will arrive at the same time in what seems to weigh down my spirit. I have battled in the spirit more in the past 2 or 3 months than my entire Christian life. Does anyone have any experience with these things. The Bible says satan, and his demons must flee at the name of Jesus, but many fight even harder when I take authority over them in the name of Jesus? The only other time I have seen that is during deliverance prayer with people who are unwilling to waiver whom have spirits attached to them. I am solid in my faith. Deliverance ministry can be dangerous from what I have been taught. I need advice in order to stand, when faced with these spirits that wish to destroy. Any helpful advice is very much appreciated. Thank you very much.
