Spiritual Warfare: Exposing the demonic nature of sexual sin and victory in Jesus
Professing Christians who live sinful lives and have lukewarm faith can be “possessed by sexual demons.” Thus live defeated lives—enslaved by porn and fornication.
Sexual impurity opens the gates for all kinds of “sexual demons” to enter the body, explains Dr. Richard Ing, author of Spiritual Warfare. However, genuine repentance that comes with faith in Christ imputes the “righteousness of Jesus,” and no demon can possess those who are genuinely in Christ.
It’s not always demonic
Some exaggerate spiritual warfare by giving “credit to Satan,” even though he had nothing to do with it. Our sinful nature makes it easy for anyone to fall into sexual sins such as masturbation, pornography, and adultery.
However, those who expose themselves to temptations or live a sinful sexual lifestyle will be sucked into Satan’s mire. The next thing they believe is that they can’t stop sinning.
The point is we sin because we choose to do so.
Did Satan make me do it?
Satan cannot make a Christian believer do anything, but he can entice you to sin (1 Peter 5:8). If you give in to your own sinful desire (James 1:14), it is a choice you made (James 4:7). Satan’s temptation becomes a toehold.
But each person is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own evil desires. Then after desire has been conceived, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death.
apart from Christ, we can do nothing.

I – Exposing Satan’s plans
Our sinful nature is opposed to the Spirit of God. The ancient Babylonian system is the worship of the flesh. The reason scriptures warn us that “Flesh leads to death, while the Spirit to life.” (Romans 8:1-6)
List of the spiritual, sexual nest
These spirits can come in groups and possess the body as their “sexual nest.” Thus enabling a list of sexual perversions to act out in various circumstances.
II – You can pick up demons from sex partners
Demonic spirits can transfer from one person to another. There are cases when the sexual spirits of a person identify themselves as coming from a strange religion. For example, the man had lived with a woman whose mother was involved in the Santaria religion.
When a person engages in sexual activity outside marriage (or fornication), we weaponize demons with our sin.
Someone with heavy bondage to these spirits may allow demonic invasion. Passed down to children, it becomes like a “sexual curse.” This only happens if the household does not belong to God.
Scriptures warn, “Do not be yoked with unbelievers.” (2 Corinthians 6:14)
GHOSTS ARE REAL, BUT THEY’RE NOT YOUR DEAD RELATIVES.
III – The Babylonian religious system
The “whore of Babylon” is thick with lust and prostitution – insatiable appetites that keep people in bondage.
Scripture references: Jude 20; 2 Peter 2:12; Revelation 18:11-13
- Man will become like BRUTE BEASTS in the end times.
- Sex is one of the FOUR DEMANDS of the FLESH, along with food, shelter, and clothing.
- Babylon trades with such MERCHANDISE.
- Her flesh MERCHANTS are everywhere. (Prostitution, drugs, pornography, and slavery merchants)
Sexual nest of spirits
When people are deeply involved in permissive and decadent sexual acts, they can be absorbed into a spiritual, sexual nest. This is best illustrated during the ancient Roman culture when sexual orgies and adultery were normalized.
These spirits come in a nest, even though the person never engaged in some of the spirits within that nest—the reason they must be cast out altogether.
Roman and Babylonian cultures
Sexual activities, in general, were not necessarily heterosexual, which does not mean the Emperors were gays. They have given to depravity that sexual demons are feasting in their sexual nest. [Quora]
IV – Sexual liberation
Demons in Hollywood, social media, and even woke Christians bolstered Satan’s agenda. It comes in many names expressed through “political correctness.” It covertly promotes promiscuity, Neofeminism, gay life, or being Trans is OK with God.
Sexual liberation movements:
- Neofeminist movement.
- LGBTQ and Transgenderism, Transexual, or Pansexual Rights.
- Abortion Rights led by Planned Parenthood.
- Satanic groups such as TST, Freethinkers, and Humanists.
VI – Sexual fantasies
Temptation begins with what we see that can lead to sexual fantasy. Nurturing these thoughts leads to excessive sexual fantasies that give birth to fornication or adultery. The problem is that man’s nature is sinful and seeks after these things, which is the reason we need daily repentance.
Sexual fantasies may lead to a demonic stronghold. Thoughts of hopelessness and condemnation become louder because the enemy has gained a foothold. Sexual fantasy manifest in the following:
- Pornography (video, magazine, internet), club shows, prostitution, etc.
- Masturbation, where sexual fantasies are often involved or lust for someone.
“For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were brought to light by the Law, were at work in the parts of our body to bear fruit for death.”
2 Corinthians 5:7
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
Resisting the nature of sexual lust
- Come to Jesus: Man’s nature is sinful, but we become a “new creation” by faith in Christ.
- Renounce sin: On the extreme, spiritual warfare with fasting is necessary.
- Metanoia: Pursue daily sanctification and preach repentance.
