BIBLE PASSAGE: Daniel 10:12-15 KJV (RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 15 December 2019)

12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.

13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb.

INTRODUCTION: Demons are fallen angels who joined the devil (Lucifer) in the rebellion against God ( Isaiah 14:12-16; Rev. 12:3-4). They are spirit beings (Matt. 8:16). Demons are referred to by several alternate names including unclean spirit (Mark 1:27), evil spirit (Acts 19:15), familiar spirit (Isaiah 19:3), lying spirit (1Kings 22:23), seducing spirit (1Timothy 4:1). Some of the false gods/idols that receive human sacrifices are described as devils, an alternative name also (Debut. 32:17, 1Cor. 10:20). They are powerful but limited and ultimately defeated creatures (2Thess. 2:6-7). Believers must understand the rulers operations of demons in order to avoid being their victims.


  1. Manifestations of demons
  2. Avoiding demonic operations


Demons manifest in diverse dimensions and territories (Daniel 10:13). They seek to destroy the work of God and deceive anyone they can (1Peter 5:8, 2Corinthians 11:14-14). They spread false doctrines (1Timothy 4:1), attack people (Mark 9:20-22) and combat holy angels (Daniel 10:13).

Demons, as spirit beings, have the ability to take possession of a physical body -human or animal (Mark 5:2,13). Demon possession involves a demon having a complete control over the thoughts and actions of a person (Mark 5:2-5). Opening yourself up to the possibilities (likeliness) of demon possession is foolish and dangerous. Generally, habitual sins, a refusal to forgive, unbelief or a hardened heart can be an entering point (John 12:6). Others include involvement in cults, divination, drug/alcohol abuse, rebellion, bitterness and new age practices (transcendental meditations or astral projections).

The absence of the Holy spirit in the life of a person makes such life vulnerable to demonic possession and even when delivered it becomes merely an empty dwelling place ready for more wicked demons to inhabit (Luke 11:24-26).


We cannot fight spiritual battles with fleshy weapons (2Cor. 10:4). To avoid demonic attacks and operations, a believer must, first and foremost, be genuinely born again sanctified, filled with the Holy Spirit and always seek the knowledge of the word of God. He/she must also be prayerful, putting on the whole armour of God. (Eph. 6:13-18). The believer’s focus must not shift from Jesus Christ (Hebrews 12:2). He/she must fellowship with other true believers (Heb. 10:25) and avoid ungodly associations (2Cor. 6:14-18).
Believers should note that Christ has disarmed the power and authorities of the devil and all demons (Col. 2:15, Eph. 4:8). Believers should, therefore, totally submit to God, exercise their faith ( 1Peter 5:9) and resist the devil (James 4:7).

Anyone that permits the operations of demons will not fulfill destiny because demons are destiny destroyers (John 10:10)
