My wife and I have been asked to research this topic and share what we found. We can't just hop on a band wagon and say something, no. We need to research every aspect of this and then come to a conclusion. The following series is what we discovered.
Here is a topic that is not typically talked about in mainstream Christianity, but it is something that almost every charismatic/spirit filled believer has heard of; spirit husbands and spirit wives. We have been asked about this topic by a variety of different people as of late and we wanted to get to the truth behind this topic and reveal how it pertains to Christianity. What we discovered in seeking true revelation on this topic will astound you and empower you.
What Is a Spirit Husband or Wife?
We must establish where this teaching derived from. The concept of spirit husbands and wives stems from shamanistic religions and teachings in which they join themselves to the spirits of the gods. To a shaman, these spirits help them to interact between the spirit world and this world. The relationships shamans have with their spirit spouse is typically expressed in romantic, sexual, or 'fantasy' using phallic symbolism.
It is believed that spirit husbands and wives are responsible for many things. They are believed to prevent a person from getting pregnant, causing fertility issues, causing husbands and wives to disrespect each other, causing cancer, blockages, lures you into looking at pornography, leads you to partake in sexual immorality, adultery, causes transgenderism and a list of other things.
To almost any Christian you can see that this is demonic. it doesn't take any astute logical deductions to recognize these spirit spouses are demons. Everything that these demons are doing is directly related to producing fruit of the flesh and consequences of sowing and reaping in the flesh.
Paul teaches us that fruit of the flesh (works of the flesh) in Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God." Do you see the similarities between the work of the flesh and the work of the demons?
Have you ever wondered why demons are responsible for luring people to do things that stimulate the flesh and produce such works? Let me explain a few things about the origin of demons and the purposes for why they do what they do and how we can tie that into spirit husbands and wives.
The origin of Demons
The most common belief in the church today is that the fallen angels are the demons. That's interesting because the Hebrews of the old testament, Jesus, God, and the Christians of the New testament always differentiate between angels and demons. Peter says, " For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment;" 2 Peter 2:4; and Jude says, "And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling--these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day." If the demons are fallen angels, and they are bound in chains until the day of judgment, then how can the demons be actively possessing people and otherwise operating freely?
The answer is, they are not. You are probably thinking I am a heretic, or a blasphemer, or preaching a false doctrine, but if you would, please, allow me to show you why I believe demons are not fallen angels.
The demons are the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim. I can hear it now, "ummm.... all humans that die go to Heaven or Hell, there is no in-between." You would think that was entirely the case. Yet scriptures shows that Satan isn't in Hell, yet it says that the rest of the angels that fell are chained in Hell. You should also consider that the nephilim are not fully human; they are part demon. When we look at Matthew 8:28-29 we see, "When He came to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men met Him as they were coming out of the tombs. They were so extremely violent that no one could pass by that way. And they cried out, saying, “What business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?”
First, let's look at one subtle thing the demons said that we over look. They said, "Have you come to torment us before the time?" The Greek word used for time here is kairos. This word means coming to pass at exactly the right, or most opportune time. This seems meaningless and as though it just trivial banter, but they are asking Jesus if He is going to sin against God and torment them. The word for torment means to be tortured, to be tossed to and fro like a wave which travels in a circular buffeting manner. This is evidence that they know their fate is going to be which is paralleled by Revelation 20:10, "And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever." The same word used in Matthew 8 for torment is used here in Revelation 20. The demons know their fate. Somehow, the book of revelation was not a surprise to them.
Now we see, in 2 Peter 2:4 as mentioned above that the angels are already in hell chained with chains of gloomy darkness. There is no mention of any angels being loosed from any chains except in Revelation 9:14 when only four angels which are bound under the river euphrates are loosed to destroy 1/3 of the population. Currently, that would be approximately 2.3-3.3 billion of the inhabitants of the earth.
Many would assume that Nephilim means fallen angels, but they are the progeny of angels and humans that sinned against God as well as the progeny of beasts and humans. Genesis describes them as giants. However, they have various names and descriptions in Genesis after the flood. In Genesis 14 They are called reaphites (repaim hebrew); zuzimites (ha-Zuzim meaning the beasts in Hebrew), The terrors (ha-emim); The builders (Kiriathim); Genesis 14:6 Horites (Cave Dwellers, people who built homes in caves and crevices like a serpent burrows in a wall or crack). We'll get into this a little bit more in some later blogs, but here's a taste. Those who built their building in caves and mountainsides are seen evidenced in the America's as well as the land of Canaan.
Another theory that people like to speculate is that the current land of the canaanites is inhabited by the original people that settled there. But the scripture teaches us that Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya, and the middle east were occupied by the Reaphim/Nephilim. Deuteronomy 2:10-12 states, "(The Emim had dwelt there in times past, a people as great and numerous and tall as the Anakim. They were also regarded as giants, like the Anakim, but the Moabites call them Emim. The Horites formerly dwelt in Seir, but the descendants of Esau dispossessed them and destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their place, just as Israel did to the land of their possession which the Lord gave them.) This is interesting to me because a large portion of the mummies and skeletons that have been found in this area have had red hair. One particular mummy was a pharaoh that had red hair and white skin (keep your eyes open for part two).
psalm 91 makes reference to demonic forces that can't harm you under tha dhadow of God'swings, 'You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you." I believe these are the same terrors that God mentions as his Terrors in Exodus 23:27.
"I will send My terror ahead of you and throw into confusion every nation you encounter. I will make all your enemies turn and run." The word used for terror here is emati, which the same variant of the word used to describe the Emim giants in Genesis 14:6. Interestingly, the word specifically uses in Genesis 14:6 is specifically used in Job 25 as well, "It is drawn, and comes out of the body; Yes, the glittering point comes out of his gall. Terrors come upon him;" The word is very specifically Emim. These terrors, or the terror by night are the ha-emim spirits.
Each of these different tribes of Nephilim are descended from Ham, the son of Noah. Ham's son Canaan was cursed by Noah after Ham sinned against him in the arc. This sin that was committed was an incestual rape of Noah by Ham. The Aramaic language had a very polite way of saying 'Roofied' or 'date-rape' in the time of Moses. The phrase they used was, "To look upon." You see this evidenced in Leviticus 18:7 which we more accurately translate today to read, "Do not dishonor your father by having sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother; do not have relations with her." In Hebrew it says do not look upon the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother for she is your mother, don't look at her naked, she is your mother, you shall not uncover her nakedness.
In Habakkuk it paints this picture for us by saying, “Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbor, Pressing him to your bottle, Even to make him drunk, that you may look on his nakedness!" In this light, you can now see why Noah was enraged when he woke up from his drunken stupor and cursed Canaan, his fourth Grandson from Ham after the flood.
Here's the significance behind this knowledge of the molestation that occurred. Some of this is conjecture, but here is what I have found in the Bible. I have speculated that Ham's wife was a Nephilim. The reason being is that it doesn't say the angels started to reproduce with the humans again. However, the Nephilim reappeared. Remember, both jude and Peter said the angels that fell, except for satan, are kept in chains of darkness until the day of judgment.
Some have speculated that either Noah or Noah's wife were Nephilim but if you look at Genesis 6:9 you see that it was said that Noah was blameless in his generations. The word translated as blameless means, complete, untouched, unblemished, pure, whole, intact, perfect, without defect. When it says that Noah was blameless it is indicating that he was in no way mixed with the Nephilim genetically. He was spotless, complete, intact, pure and perfect in his genetic composition. Besides that, if either Noah or his wife were nephilim, all of humanity would have been nephilim. If Noah had any children after the flood you and I would be nephilim which we know is not true. Nephilim are always noted as being evil, wicked, practicing evil and totally hating God. They also have identifying markers like extra rows of teeth, height, Extra fingers or toes, long necks (Anok), beast like characteristics and so on.
Extra biblically, Josephus does mention Phut as having children, but Since we know that Noah and his family were not nephilim, then we can logically deduce that since Ham's children were all Nephilim that his wife must have been a nephilim. This is speculation because I haven't seen in the bible where it makes that claim, but the evidence is in the offspring and the genealogies of Noah.
God refers to the Nephilim as being corrupted after he says Noah is blameless. This word for Corrupt means the spoiled. Genesis 6:12 says, "So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth." In Hebrew this translation says, and God looked (using the Plural form representing the Trinity; Elohim) on the earth and indeed they had sinned all Flesh and their way had been corrupted. Take note that God declared the flesh was corrupt and their way or walk in life was corrupt as well. If He was only referring to the people being wicked in their hearts, then he had no reason to identify that their flesh had been corrupted or spoiled as well.
Make sure you watch out for tomorrow's blog, The origin of Demons (pt. 2). We encourage you to look into these things for yourself as well and not just accept what we are saying or what you have been taught by the main stream body as the accepted teachings about the origin of demons.
