UNCLEAN SPIRITS WITHIN A HUMAN BODY
By Apostle Byron Burke
"When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he [THE UNCLEAN SPIRIT}, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
Matthew 12:43 - 45
Do you understand the scriptures above?
Let me translate it for you:
Matthew 12: 43 When a demonic spirit which can't be seen with the human eye leaves a persons body, it travels in the air searching for another body to enter, but it can't find another.
44. Then the demonic spirit says, I will return to the body that I was
evicted from (The devil thinks he owns your body) which has entered without the
persons consent and find that the body has been clean.
45. When the demonic spirit returns, he will bring seven additional demonic
spirits to help keep a hold on you and they will set up camp in your mind and
body more powerful than before.
Evil or demonic spirits have names just like you and I. They do not want to
leave the human body because, that is what needed for them to operate in the
earth/natural realm. To get a better understanding, you must go to the beginning
of the Bible to see how it all started. Many of today's saints do not realize
that we are spirit beings or believe we are.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them
have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over
the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that
creepeth upon the earth.
God gave man dominion over everything on earth including Satan. Satan was
ordered to crawl on the for decieving Eve.
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art
cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly
shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Satan's goal was to get mankind to depend on our natural eyes to determine
what is the truth and not the spirit. When God gave Adam the command not to eat
of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, God informed him that he would
For it is written in the book of Genesis
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou
mayest freely eat:
"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die".
It was not Gods original plan for mankind to die naturely or spiritually.
Satan knew that and he had to find a way to have man to become spiritually blind
and start depending on his flesh eyes for guidance and understanding. The
only way he could do that was to find a way to get Adam to break the covenant
agreement with God. Satan had to find a way to get Adam to break his covenant
with God because GOD IS A GOD OF HIS WORD and Satan knew he could not overthrow
Satan realized that God did not give Eve the commandment so Satan tricked
For it is written
"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD
God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat
of every tree of the garden?
Genesis 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of
the trees of the garden:
"But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath
said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
"And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die":
Now let us take a look at something, Satan created the first lie, if you just
read Genesis chapter 3, verses 4 & 5, that is not what God said. Jesus talked
about Satan being a liar for it is written.
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He
was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there
is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is
a liar, and the father of it".
God commanded Adam not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil
(Genesis 2:17) Let's continue.
"And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was
pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the
fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did
Why did Adam disregard God's command when he ate of the fruit that God told
him not to.
"And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she
shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man".
Adam made a covenant with Woman and Adam did not include the covenant of God
with his! Satan understands that God created everything by His Word and God’s
word is truth.
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God".
Satan found a loop hole in the covenant agreement between Adam & Eve to
convince Eve to make another agreement by thinking the earth/natural realm is more
powerful that the spirit realm. By doing so, man became blind spiritually.
Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready,
but the flesh is weak.

Apostolic Churches Bring Light to Those in Darkness (John 8:12)
Spiritual blindness is common because everyone is born spiritually blind. Apostolic churches will be known for bring light to those in darkness. Apostolic ministry penetrates darkness, causing spiritual eyesight to return. They possess an anointing that brings revelation and understanding to the church. There are certain truths that the church will never see without this anointing. Multitudes of people live in spiritual darkness, grouping about under the dominion of Satan who has blinded their minds. They are in need of deliverance from the spirits of blindness darkness and ignorance.
The Lord, in his mercy, sends Apostles with and anointing that will destroy yokes of bondage (Isa 10:27). That is thy Satan savagely opposes the apostolic ministry, persecuting it because
of the massive damage it inflicts on his Kingdom. The apostolic anointing penetrates the darkness and removes the evil.
So remember what Jesus commanded his Twelve disciples to do and believers.
"He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out
evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness"(Matthew 10:1)
