The Bible says: “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against EVIL SPIRITS in the heavenly places!” Ephesians 6:12 NLT
Spirits go by many names; even God and Satan are identified by numerous names and titles in the Bible.
There are two specific evil spirits that I want to address in this study. The first one is called Incubus, which is defined by the dictionary as one that lies on persons in their sleep; one that has sexual intercourse with women while they are sleeping.
The other spirit is named Succubus. This is a demon that assumes female form to have sexual intercourse with men in their sleep.
These two evil spirits are also referred to as “sex demons” or “night demons.” They are a powerful, high-ranking class of demons. These demons are primarily spirits of sexual perversion. Night demons are basically spirits of lust.
We see evidence of this happening in the Bible book of Genesis 6 verse 4, where it says: “In those days, and for some time after, giant Nephilites lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with women, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times.”
This means that the “sons of God” were fallen angels, demon spirits who had sex with human women, impregnating them, and causing them to give birth to giants, abnormal people. Incubus and Succubus are the same class of demons that operated in those times, only now they are looking to impregnate people with spiritual perversion and lust.
The Incubus and Succubus spirit manifest itself to the conscious mind and cause it to experience all of the stimulation and physical feelings that take place during intercourse or sexual contact with a physical person. The demons most often reveal themselves to people during the nighttime hours, but can manifest at any time of the day.
These demonic spirits can have such a strong effect on people that they can cause overwhelming sexual urges in the body, so strong that they completely take over the mind. This can happen at any time, but tend to be most common when lying down.
The Incubus and Succubus spirit is also responsible for sex dreams. Those are dreams during which you are engaged in sexual contact or intercourse, or dreams in which your body has a spontaneous orgasm. Another manifestation of Incubus and Succubus is nightmares – realistic, graphic, heart-stopping nightmares that rob you of sleep and make you awake frightened. Many people also claim to actually see spirit bodies that come and subject them to various sexual acts. These spirits are often violent and will attack you by beating, choking, and restraining you.
However, it is important to understand, that not every powerful sexual urge in the body is due to a demonic manifestation. Strong sexual urges can be purely hormonal, or just good old-fashioned arousal at the thought of enjoying intercourse with your spouse. When sexual urges come on suddenly without warning and you simply cannot control them without having an intense battle, that is when you know they are demonic.
A vast amount of Christians are being kept in bondage by the Incubus and Succubus spirits, whose purpose is to impregnate them with fear and in doing so, pervert their faith. The devil knows that fear induces a desire to seek comfort. Sexual activity, especially sexual fantasy and masturbation, bring about a temporary sense of false comfort. Therefore, by inducing fear, these lust demons cause you to be that much more likely to commit sexually perverse acts. People that are afflicted by these spirits will experience a tremendous amount of failure and often feel cursed. Their belief system has simply been perverted.
But Jesus Christ came to set the captives free (see Luke 4:18)! All you have to do is renounce the Incubus and Succubus spirits that have entered into your life and their works.
