The Holy Spirit brought a recent revelation to us about a new “tool” in the Courts of Heaven. A pattern has emerged: Often people are cleared of charges and even receive healing, but something still keeps popping up every now and then. They come back to the Courts and receive charges, but a short time later, it resurfaces. It is like a demon is dealt with and slides out of view only to put on a new mask, using a slightly different approach to interfere with your life!
There are many ways a demon can “hide.” One is to pose as a member of the Trinity, most often, the Holy Spirit. Once, a demon tried to do this with me. If they can get us to believe they are speaking for God, this imitation can lead us astray. Here is a good example of why so many Christians wind up in a ditch:
I had been experiencing correction in the form of vertigo. When I would walk in the wrong direction, depending on the severity of the offence, I would get dizzy each time I would stand. At the worst point, I even threw up because the room spun for so long! This was a repetitive process:
- Go to the Courts
- Find the cause
- Repent for the sin
- Cover it with the blood
- Get the charges dismissed
The vertigo would get better but only for a couple of days, then it would return again. Three weeks into this cycle, I laid down on the couch on my left side and when the vertigo assaulted me, I cried out for help, “Holy Spirit, what is going on? Why is this happening!”
My eyes were closed, and a familiar form appeared before me. It was the full-grown man who I knew as the Holy Spirit laying on his side, facing me. He was so clear and so vivid. As we talked, something seemed a bit off so I asked, “Do you confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh onto the Earth?”
The man laughed. I had seen the child form of the Holy Spirit laugh, but never the man. It seemed different somehow. About that time, I was momentarily distracted because my dog did something. When I refocused, the man was completing what he was saying. I continued talking to him, but a voice reminded me that I hadn’t really heard the man say, “Yes.”
I asked again, stating, “I’m sorry, but I have to ask once more: Do you confess that the Son of God, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, the Christ has come in the flesh to the Earth?”
The vision began to crumble like a wadded up sheet of paper with distortion lines running through it. Then it vanished. “Holy Spirit,” I cried, “What happened?”
“That wasn’t me,” said the voice filled with so much love that I knew to be the true Holy Spirit.
“Why was it allowed to come when I called for you?” I asked.
My Teacher replied, “You gave it a place by listening to it.”
I cried out in panic, “When? How did I give this spirit a place?”
My mind filled with memories of sharing the last few posts a dozen times. Although I didn’t feel led by the Holy Spirit to do it, it just seemed like a good thing to do. Now I know that it was the prodding by the fake holy spirit, causing me to get into self-effort. It is up to the readers to share the posts, not me.
This is an example of a hidden demon trying to gain a place in my life. It can be very subtle and seem very innocent. Sometimes, we just feel that something is hindering us and we can’t put a finger on why or how. When things persist against us, it is often because we have stepped out of line giving the enemy legal access to us.
On one occasion, in the Courts of Heaven, I followed the leading of the Holy Spirit, demanding, not merely asking, that any spirit, even hidden ones that are not active, step forward and state their claims. I saw a demon that was fully formed, then he became a puddle, a few seconds later, the demon would pop up in a different location. This is what a hidden demon does. It only exerts influence for a time, then it withdraws deep inside like a puddle so that it can remain hidden.
The first team member received their charges which the Holy Spirit made clear where the root of the access was. Next we placed another member before the Judge, let’s call her Judy. After demanding all spirits, even hidden ones, step forward, we listened. What we received was a perfect example of how a spirit can remain hidden and why:
Judy heard “Oh, crap,” right away. This is not from the Holy Spirit. He will not use this type of language because the Bible tells us not to curse or use foul language.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace to the hearers. (Ephesians 4:29 AKJV)
Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God]. (Ephesians 5:4 AMPC)
Since this was coarse language, Judy realized that it was not from the Holy Spirit but a different spirit attached to her. She began to panic as she had witnessed the fate of the spirit attached to the other teammate.
Our other team members saw a pair of eyes on her back and running to and from things. This labeled the demon as a “watcher” and its job was to distract her from her destiny.
Judy began to explain things that the Holy Spirit was bringing to her:
- She had an old boyfriend who used to stalk her and watch her every move.
- When she was really young there was a demon who used to talk to her but a friend’s mother who was a “Spiritualist” did a “cleansing” and the demon sang a “goodbye” song to her.
The only power we have over demons comes through the Name and Blood of Jesus. All the spiritualist accomplished was to push the demon into hiding. It brought temporary relief, but years later, it manifested by attacking her through her boyfriend.
Judy repented for placing faith in something spiritual that wasn’t of God and for all the times that she had listened to this spirit. After she covered this sin with the blood of Jesus, the cases that were giving this spirit access were overruled and the spirit could be removed. This is how easy it is to deal with a hidden spirit.
This may also happen if you abuse the authority and use the blood of Jesus without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. When you commit the sin which gives the demon access once again, the demon returns.
It isn’t always necessary to go to the CoH to receive deliverance from hidden demons. Notice that I didn’t have to go to the Courts. Holy Spirit spoke directly to me and I was able to repent and take care of it with the Blood of Jesus who then contends for me in the Courts. Our Advocate will have the cases dismissed and the demon will have to leave.
It is very presumptuous to assume that there is only one way for God to handle removing the enemy from our lives. That which we have experienced is not the limit of how God moves. These are just a couple of examples from our experiences. This is why we only schedule intercession appointments now. We rely on the Lord to show us how to handle each situation such as, whether or not we need to enter the Courts or if the Holy Spirit, our Counselor, will lead and guide us gently into the truth outside of the Courts.

Believers' Boot Camp series
Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
- Knowing what weapons are available
- Learning how to use those weapons
- Receiving orders and following them
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father.
The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.
