Transference of spirits is the transfer of spirits from one person to another. Transference of spirits is part and parcel of mankind on planet earth. There are two types of transference of spirits:
a. Positive or Holy transference of spirits
b. Negative or Unholy transference of spirits
A. Positive or Holy Transference of spirits:
It is the passage of positive or Holy transference of spirits started from God. After God created Adam, the first man on planet earth. He breathed into Adam’s foundation and transferred His spirit into Adam and he became a living being (Gen 2:7) because God’s living spirit was transferred into him. Another example of positive transference of spirits can be seen in the Holy Bible – when the ministerial works of Prophet Moses was so much for him only. God took the spirit of Moses and transferred it into 70 elders of Israel, thereby reducing the responsibility of Prophet Moses. In order for them to support Prophet Moses’ ministerial work. As a result of Moses’ very old age “positive transference of spirits” took place(Numbers 11:16-17, 24-25).
B. Negative or Unholy Transference of spirits
Negative or unholy transference of spirits is the transfer of unholy evil spirits from any possessed subject or person to an unpossessed person (and thereby making such a person to be possessed with an evil spirit(s). Satan and cohorts are the originators of negative or unholy transference of spirits, they are also the distributors. There are many persons today who cannot explain how they came under the influence of evil spirits of reckless immorality, anger, pride, materialism, hatred and so forth.
Below are some ways by which spirits can be transferred positively or negatively:
1. Transference of spirits through laying of hands
There is powerful transference of spirits through laying of hands. The Holy Bible tells us in the book of (Deut.34:9), that through positive laying of hands, Prophet Moses transferred the spirit of wisdom unto Joshua in order for him to be able to lead the Israelites to the promised land. This was after God decided to call Moses home because of his anger problem.
With negative laying of hands, a lot of people are going through great agony as a result of contaminated hands laid on them for one reason or the other in the past. Either through witch doctors, occultic human beings, marine agents and evil people in general.
2. Transference of spirits through word or communication
Select your friends among Christians believers only (1 Cor.15:33). In another vain, anyone that is not wise enough can be corrupted by immoral acts and if such a person is having regular communication with someone that is into immoral activities, there is a probability that person will be influenced.
3. Transference of spirits via association
Mind the people you move or associate with. Also marriage between believers and unbelievers should be discouraged so that, one wouldn’t be contaminated or possessed. It is highly advisable for someone to move in company of consecrated believers (2 Cor. 6:14-18; Amos 3:3; Proverbs 13:20). Lastly, a lot of people today changed from good to bad and are parading as hired killers, drug peddlers, drunkards, smokers, cheats, immoral and so forth because of the bad association they keep.
4. Transference of spirits through sex
There is a powerful transference of spirits through sex, and it is the easiest way through which evil spirits are easily transferred from one person to another. In majority of the cases of negative transference of spirits; over 85 percent are traceable to sexual activities. The Bible tells in (1 Cor. 6:16), that if you are joined sexually with a harlot, you both become one; so if you have sexual relationship with a highly demonized person(s) or member of the occult, a witch or wizard, fetish priest and marine agents, it will bring unholy transference of spirits from such a person to the unsuspecting victim.
This has resulted in some men and women becoming barren, impotent, infertile and backwardness in their life endeavors. A disheartening one is when people loose control over their sexual life to the extent that they cannot sleep one night without having sex.For singles, this can delay him or her from getting married on time. Those who are involved in any form of sexual perversions such as :homosexuality, bestiality, incest, oral and anal sex practices, and excessive and indiscriminate sexual acts are endangering their lives. People that were involved in evil together can open doors for unholy transference of spirits to be established. (Lev. 20:13). This can also lead to strong unholy soul-ties.
5. Transference of spirits through television
The spirit of immorality can easily be transferred through watching pornography. It is the same way the Holy Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ can be transferred by watching programs that encourage soaking in the Word, praise and worship of God.
6. Transference of Spirits through Books
Holy Spirit is transferred through reading of the Holy Bible. While, evil spirits are transferred easily through reading of occultic and pornographic books or materials that show naked women and men engaged in unfathomable acts.
7. Transference of spirits via parent
If one’s father or mother has evil spirit(s), the children may get it also. These spirits can go from one generation to another (generational Spirits) if not driven out in time.
8. Transference of spirits through music
Music is another powerful medium for the transfer of evil spirits. Just as there are good (Christian) gospel music, so also there are bad music with evil conceived songs that encourages immorality, promotes violence, condones murder, invocation of demons and worshiping of satan.
9. Transference of spirits through food, water and alcohol
There is a powerful transference of spirits through food, water and alcohol. Through these avenues, spirits could be transferred negatively or positively (1 Cor. 10:19-22;Rev.2:14). For example, taking items dedicated to idols or participating in accursed rituals will most likely pave the way for the transference of unholy spirits. This can spiritually poison or defile someone.
10. Transference of spirits through objects and other materials
Many homes and people are under the influence of demons because of the presence of objects in their possession. Such items range from shrines, contaminated ear rings, neck laces, artifacts, occult symbols, pictures, moulded statue of a mermaid, the devil and even evil board game. (Joshua 7:1-11, 24-26). Other objects that can easily be contaminated are candles, incense, perfume, soap, pictures, perfumes, “holy water and holy handkerchief” from false prophets and fetish priests. These people have nothing but evil to offer.
Also watching idol festivities or participating in them directly or indirectly can sometimes affect someone indirectly depending (Hosea 4:6 A” lack of knowledge”,Deut.27:15”against”).
12.Transference of spirits through the Environment
There are demonic spirits in charge of any country, city, town, villages. Just like there are angels of God everywhere and also earthly political or military or hierarchy in the world. It is similar on the other side. These demonic spirits manipulate and control what goes on within their respective jurisdictions (Dan. 10:13,20, Rev.. 12:17-12). Some areas are classified or zoned as high level immoral activities and if proper care is not taken, innocent people living in such areas or cities may be affected due to their ignorance.
13. Transference of spirits through the Dead and Certain burial ceremonies participation
Transference of spirits can also come about through certain burial functions. Demons don’t die when people die, and when any person they possessed dies, these demons would certainly leave such bodies to look for another person or persons to inhibit. They always need a human container to house them. People that work in the mortuary or hospital are advised to learn how to conduct self deliverance exercises on themselves.
During a burial ceremony, some people come around like they are sympathizing with the bereaved but they come armed with the wrong motives to attack some family members that are mourning their loved one. Christians shouldn’t be ignorant of the devices of satan, but be fully alert. Remember that satan has a way of striking during a bereavement period especially most people are in a low state especially with their prayer life.
Immediately after a grand burial ceremony, whether you a minister or born again Christian, please try to conduct comprehensive deliverance on you and your family. It is always better to be safe and sorry. May the Lord continue to uphold all of us in Jesus’ name.
SHALOM TO THE BRIDE OF OUR LORD JESUS!
