Love I am being visited by a spirit

This year I have stopped drinking alcohol, I have stopped socially smoking and I am taking a program to stop myself from masturbating (thanks to something called the candeo program)

The reason I am saying this is because I used to be an atheist and now I have made a dramatic change from being one of the devils greatest servants to being god's servant.


I am taking the bible seriously and for the passed 5 months my computer has been switching on on it's own. At the time my computer is not set to hibernation mode, it is not connected to the internet yet it still switches on.

This morning I got woken up as my computer switched its self on.. shortly after and I kid NOBODY a single key on my keyboard tapped away. 3 Minutes after it just a single key tapped again as clear as day.


At the time I wasn't entirely afraid but I was confused, I was not sure if I was being visited by one of gods angels or by the devil and I do not know how to find out?


All I know is that while I laid in bed I suddenly felt an enormous energy and an enormously heightened sense. Then it faded. I used to disbelieve in ghosts/spirits but now I believe 100%.


How do I know if this spirit was from gods angels or from the devil?? and what is it's purpose with me?





Edit: The reason I put Love into my icon is to spread the importance of love
and another thing, my blessings are currently sitting at 666 - something here is occurring.

Jesus gave all born again Christians authority over satan and the works of the devil. You have been given the authority to command all evil to leave in Jesus name. If it happens again, pray for protection from the Lord and simply command any spirit of satan to leave your home immediately.

I can see no godly reason for what is happening outside the fact that He would want you to learn "young in your faith" about your authority and how to use it to walk free of sin and the works of the devil.
When we get saved satan is not amused and will more often than not come after us to try to lead us away from the Lord by whatever means he thinks will work.

Thank you the both of you.

Maremma when you talk about Authority, how does one earn authority. It can not simply be given?? I can develop authority with man by showing him love and earning respect

but over any evil spirits? I do not fully understand, can you please explain more

You were given authority when you were saved,
It is not something you have to earn, you accepted Jesus as lord and savior.
That is all you had to do.

Just command it to leave is the name of Jesus.

A far more likely explanation is that you have some parameter set to wake the computer in Scheduled Tasks or the BIOS.

You have authority by the blood of Jesus alone. Everything is through faith friend even the binding of devils. Jesus has made all of these things possible through His finished work on the Cross. The name of Jesus is powerful and when a devil hears that name it must flee and submit. You cannot "earn" anything, we are all sinners saved by grace, nothing more. Jesus alone is your authority and His blood your guarantee.

Ephesians 6:10-12

King James Version (KJV)


10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Hey, I just quoted this verse. I like the KJV's rendition and that seems fitting for this thread. The coincidences never seize to amaze me.

God is not a trickster typing on keyboards or a feeling of energy.

God is love and when He shows up there is absolutely no doubt about it being Him.

God doesn't play games and bring questions and confusion.

God bring love and peace and understanding so that you KNOW that it is Him.

None of what you describe is God or a ghost of some dead person but
it is a spirit and that spirit is not of God.

Whatever is of God will point clearly and umistakable to God the son, Jesus Christ.

Pray and ask God to come into your life as you surrender to Him.
Ask Jesus to be more that your savior but to be your Lord.

Renounce all of your past life and renounce anything
of the devil or the occult (demonic supernatural power)
and ask God to deliver you from evil.

The Lords prayer is a great prayer to pray if
you do so slowly and with purpose and meaning at every word.

Pray the Lord's prayer and add to it your request that God fill you with His Holy Spirit.

You asked about authority or power over the enemy and I want to
tell you that it is by God's Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ's name that
we can cause evil to run away.

Jesus had the Spirit of God without measure...
How much do you have?
How much more will the Father give the Spirit to those who ask.

Ask God to give you more of His spirit of love, peace, joy, wisdom
and strength to overcome evil with good.

My brother was having nightly vistitations by a malevolent spirit
and one day we prayed as I said: "in the name of Jesus we bind
this evil spirit and cast it out of my brothers life in Jesus name"

He never had a problem since.

I could pray for you but I think that it is best for you to learn and do
this for yourself with God's help.

If you need help, send me a private message but I am a firm believer
in each person going to God for the answers that they need and in so
doing it, becoming dependant on Him in a greater way.

We still need other Christians so I would never tell you to
do it all on your own so if you do not feel like you are able
yet to pray on your own, find someone to pray with you or come
back here for prayer.

The devil doesn't want to let you go and so it will be a battle
to go forward with God but rest assured that as you keep going
toward God, you will become stronger and God will show you many
amazing and wonderful things and you will not be dissappointed with
choosing God in your life...
