[The following article is an excerpt from Breaking Generational Curses & Pulling Down Strongholds, by Vito Rallo. Demonstrating the known need by believers and no doubt non-believers and agnostics as well for understanding on how to be liberated from generational curses and familial demonic strongholds, is the fact that this book is listed on Creation House’s website as the number three best seller of all time in their nearly four decades of book publishing. The fact that the original version was finished and copyrighted in 1999, predating the current homosexuality-crazed atmosphere by more than a decade and a half, demonstrates undeniably that this book contains a prophetic message. Yet, it is a testament to the humility of this poignant and powerful work’s adept writing team, Vito Rallo and his wife Pat, that when I had the joy and delightful experience earlier this year of sharing a delectable breakfast at one of my favorite purveyors of same, located in my stomping grounds of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, not once did they mention anything about the rarefied enduring success of this book in terms of its sales history and global distribution. As the title indicates, this magnum opus on the subject matter, addresses head-on the pervasive and pragmatic problem of generational curses and the class of demonic strongholds that are so frequently passed down through family lineages. Anyone who has worked in the ministry of deliverance such as I have for nearly forty years, knows well that generational curses and inherited satanic bondage is a very real and very common problem among those who have become believers in Christ. Deliverance ministers will also tell you that the most common and detrimental issue they have to deal with in helping believers find liberty from these unwanted devilish chains keeping them bound in soulish rebellion and acts of sin is the deceptive expectation held by so many believers that when they surrendered to Christ and were Born Again every form of demonic bondage and its causes should have been immediately broken and every remnant of it removed from their life, and they are completely befuddled and despondent when after some time of attempting to live the Christian life that that idealistic but Biblically unsupported expectation did not happen as they had believed. The curse of sexual sins, as this excerpted chapter of the book is entitled, may be the most prevalent and destructive of all inherited sins. We can see that in the accounts of family histories recorded in the Bible, throughout human history, and the knowledgeable and discerning can see its ubiquitous manifestations in present human existence. The curse of sexual sin and its resultant demonic strongholds is the chief unseen cause behind the current societal conflagration consuming American life and culture over the satanic proliferation of homosexuality in all its forms and offshoots being summarized under the banner of LGBTQ. Some of the most powerful, defiling, and personally decimating demons of the devil’s domain are those that are the primary source of the profane and perverse lust and blasphemy against God of homosexuality in all its forms — i.e., any and all forms of same-sex sexual acts. Nothing in Satan’s arsenal is more dehumanizing and diminishing to humans than homosexuality. It demotes those it influences from the glorious estate of having been made in the image of God and being a reflector of His Light (i.e., divine Essence) to being a refractor of same and being a reflection of the archangel formerly named, Lucifer, who’s name meant Light-Reflecter or -Bearer. Admittedly, this article is a bit long, but I thought it important to keep it in tact so as not to hinder the conveyance of its vital message.

The Curse of Sexual Sins
By Vito Rallo
God comes down harder on sexual sins than any other kind of sin. The Bible deals extensively with sexual sins.
In Deuteronomy 27:20–23 we see the following:
- Cursed is the man who sleeps with his father’s wife, for he dishonors his father’s bed. Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”
- Cursed is the man who has sexual relations with any animal. Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”
- Cursed is the man who sleeps with his sister, the daughter of his father or the daughter of his mother (incest). Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”
- Cursed is the man who sleeps with his mother-in-law. Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”
In Leviticus 18:22–25, we see further clear instructions:
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination (the strongest word in the Bible connoting divine denunciation). Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity (lit. twistedness; perversion) upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants.
The Levitical law governing sexual conduct was given to the redeemed of the Old Testament and applies as well to the redeemed of the New Testament. The judgment (wrath) of God was rendered against cities/nations whose people conducted themselves in all forms of sexual immorality. They paid the ultimate price — death and total destruction! God destroyed some cities Himself, and in some He ordered the armies of Israel to kill every man, woman and child, as well as the animals, and then to burn them with fire.
Some people may question how this could possibly happen if God is so full of goodness and mercy.
I believe there are two main reasons:
- The inhabitants of those cities were involved in every kind of idolatrous practice. God had delivered Israel from Egypt and did not want them to mingle or mix with other inhabitants of the land who worshiped other gods or with those who were controlled by many strongholds and all sorts of evil workings.
- They were involved in gross sexual perversion.
Modern-day archaeologists have discovered ruins from these two ancient cities that the Bible describes as having been completely destroyed. Their finds are astonishing, in that not only did they find the ruins and determine how these cities were destroyed, but they have found bone fragments that survived all these years (and the fire itself). These bones showed advanced stages of syphilis, which is transmitted by sexual intercourse and, if left untreated, will damage brain tissue, blood vessels, or other organs. I don’t believe God wanted this disease, or any other like it, to contaminate the children of Israel.
The modern-day sexually-transmitted plague that continues to spread around the world is AIDS (HIV). Some areas of the world carry a staggering number of HIV carriers — about one in four people in some places. The cost in human lives is escalating, and the cost in dollars is soaring as well, with no end in sight. Intravenous drug addiction, sexual immorality and promiscuity are taking their toll in this situation. Everyone wants a cure, but the best cure is prevention — abstinence from sex outside of marriage, and only then with a spouse of the opposite sex whom you trust as a safe partner. People in the high-risk category who don’t want abstinence and want to continue playing with deadly fire will pay the price! The price of sin is high, as we see in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death….”
How did this evil immorality begin, and what purpose does it serve?
It all started in the Garden of Eden when Satan deceived Eve, and Adam fell by willingly sinning. Deception is the key to Satan’s success. It is Satan who deceives mankind, and man is willing to allow it by disobedience to God’s laws and by believing Satan’s lies. The more of Satan’s lies you believe, the more you will find yourself struggling in life.
Since God did not want us to be a bunch of robots, man was created with a free will and the right to choose. All of us are free moral agents who have a conscience designed to help us choose between right and wrong. Those choices we make, whether right or wrong, pave the road on our walk through life.
In our society, sexual sins are out of control, prompted and perpetuated by billboards, magazines, books, television, movies, the Internet and so on. Curiosity often causes an “urge to experiment” that outweighs good sound judgment, and when that happens, self-control is no longer being exercised.
In the 1960s, the slogan was “make love, not war.” Free-sex was the beginning of Satan’s new, accelerated plan to conquer the souls and minds of men and women through sexual strongholds. It continues to accelerate without slowing down a bit. Just standing in line at the grocery store, one cannot help but be bombarded by magazine covers designed to encourage lust and sexual fantasies.
Satan’s ability to deceive, manipulate and control has not diminished since the temptation of Eve in the Garden of Eden. In fact, it’s much more sophisticated and widespread now. Remember the serpent in the garden? The serpent lent itself to Satan, and the end result was that it was cursed to crawl on its belly all of its life. Satan, as well as all his cohorts, were already cursed before the Garden of Eden, as a result of their rebellion in Heaven.
After the Garden of Eden, in Genesis 6, we see how the whole earth was filled with evil, wicked people who were open to any and all forms of corruption. These people wanted more, and Satan knew how to pervert the good things that God gave to mankind. If mankind wants it, they will get it—in the form of adultery, fornication, lesbianism, homosexuality, sex with animals (bestiality) and pornography.
Pornography rates high on the list of strongholds, and the results are uncontrolled lust, perversion and uncleanness. Many families carry these strongholds from generation to generation, and uncontrolled lust prevails.
In Genesis 6:5, the Bible says, “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Men’s hearts were filled with every imaginable form of wickedness. They had free will, were curious and had a lot of satanic influence! The women of that era were apparently also willing to experiment with their sexuality.
Genesis 6:2 says “that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.” We see how the womens’ association with the sons of God made the women vulnerable. These mortal women were selected by the supernatural sons of God because of the womens’ free will and their desire to experiment. In that way, the women defiled themselves.
It’s no different today. Satan’s demonic forces are still as strong and more than willing to help a person become more wicked and under his control. Jeremiah 17:9–10 declares: “‘The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the Lord search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.'”
God destroyed an entire civilization in Noah’s day because men’s hearts were polluted and the evil strongholds that controlled them continually became worse. It was always man’s choice. In that day, only eight people found grace in God’s sight. They trusted in the words of the Lord and were saved when they entered the ark of safety, Noah’s ark. I believe the day will soon come when the faithful believers will be taken out of this polluted, evil world into the safety of the “ark” of Jesus. It’s up to each of us to be ready when that day comes.
The Bible is full of dire warnings telling us the severe penalty of sexual immorality, yet it is mostly ignored as an old-fashioned idea, not to be taken seriously in this day and age. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Of all the forms of human sin, sexual sins, in many ways, are often the most hazardous and consequential. Aside from man’s survival instinct, the sex drive, or libido, is recognized as being the most potent and motivating human instinct. Ironically, human survival, or at least the quality of each person’s life, is dependent on governing of innate sexual instincts and appetites.
Sexuality is also the area of Man’s greatest weakness, or strongest temptation! Men and women, rich and poor, great and ordinary, preacher and layman, have all succumbed to the allure and power of sex! The power of sex has perverted, destroyed and ruined more individuals, churches and marriages than anything else. It will bring down a king and a peasant alike. There is no other natural power like it on earth.
Once the stronghold of sexual sin has latched on to a person, only God and His power can free one from it. It is through these sexual strongholds that Satan controls and manipulates his captives. Once control is established, these sexual curses die hard! Everything attached to unlawful sex can become a stronghold.
Remember that God comes down harder on sexual sins than any other sin!
Why? There are two ways that sexual strongholds can develop: 1) through the loins of the mind, and 2) through the loins of the body.
We read in 1 Peter 1:13, “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (emphasis added). To gird the loins of our mind simply means to guard the entrance to our thought processes. Again, in Genesis 6:5, we read, ” . . . that every intent of the thoughts of his [man’s] heart was only evil continually.” Therefore, we need to protect our minds from evil thoughts.
The mind absorbs the garbage we put in it, and it’s very difficult to take the garbage out once it enters. Watching pornography or triple-X-rated movies and looking at filthy magazines is “garbage-in.” Some people think pornography is harmless, but it is very dangerous. After the photograph is displayed before the eyes, it is developed quickly in the darkroom of the mind where it stays in the subconscious. Even when you are not thinking about it, pornography will pop into your mind.
Pornography has victims, and is not to be considered an innocent adult pastime. Both those who watch and those who perform are cursed. The curse is the addiction. A strong foothold is being established as one allows the conduit of the mind to open up, and the thought to pass through it into the spirit. Ephesians 6:11–14 says:
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth…. [Emphasis Added]
The first thing we are told to do when putting on the armor of God is to gird our waists. The waist area referred to here is the loin, or sexual reproductive area of our body. First Peter 1:13 talks about protecting the loins of our minds, but here in Ephesians it speaks literally of protecting the loins of our bodies. Why? The loin area is our reproductive area. It is the conduit (channel) by which reproductive , life-producing bodily fluid passes from one person to another. It is well known that diseases may be transmitted in this manner.
Even beyond that, the joining of two people is a spiritual as well as a natural act. Any demonic entities that are present in either person can pass from one person to the other, or they can join forces, establishing strongholds and becoming part and parcel of that other person. They can eventually control that person, and possibly future generations. The sexual intercourse might be a free-will exchange, maybe just a one-night stand, but the end result could be a world of iniquity that goes on and on, perhaps even to one’s children’s children and children’s children’s children, and more.
When you have sex with someone, you open yourself to receive anything (and everything) that your partner may have received from anyone (and everyone) with whom he or she has had sex and vice versa.
All these entities can move and exchange positions through individuals like an enormous underground network of tunnels, running through lives, affecting and controlling the thoughts and actions of their captives.
Uncleanness (i.e., spiritual defilement) is the result. Galatians 5:19 states, “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness….” Unclean spirits are inherent and connected to any and all sexual activity outside of marriage, i.e., any illicit sexual activity, and can take control of one or both persons involved. The apostle Paul speaks of these activities in Romans 1:21–32 below:
Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. [Emphasis Added]
In verse 24, it says, “God gave them up to uncleanness.” The word unclean here is from the Greek word ak-ath´-ar-tos, which means “demonic.” In verse 28, it says, “God gave them over to a debased mind.” Here in these scriptures, Paul is referring to the vile passions of all illicit sexual sins, especially lesbianism and homosexuality (which spiritually are one and the same). The fact that God “gave them up” and “gave them over” means He seared their consciences on the matter, and, at that point, they no longer knew the difference between right and wrong.
In 1 Corinthians 6:9–10, the Bible declares:
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
Homosexuals, pederasts (those who practice anal intercourse, especially with boys) who violate catamites (boys kept by those who practice pederasty) and sodomites are among those who will not inherit the kingdom of God. Why? Because they are full of unclean spirits.
How did these unclean spirits get in?
- They may have been passed from previous generations through spiritual heredity.
- They may have entered by way of another person who was involved with someone who was involved with someone else who came into contact with someone who had a homosexual or lesbian spirit. They can move to a receptive host and spread like wildfire. Any illicit sexual activity can result in any kind of spirit exchange. No person is meant (by God) to be a homosexual! It is either passed on or acquired through illicit sex.
- Participation in homosexual acts of any kind can open the door to unclean spirits. If a person thinks he is not a homosexual because he is not the one performing the sex act, that is a false assumption. Whether you are “pitching or catching,” you are still playing a most dangerous game. Your chances of being infected are very high!
- Thought processes (fantasizing) about the idea of a same-sex partner can open the door through the loins (or channel) of your mind. Most activity of any kind usually begins with a thought about it first.
- A child’s experimentation with sex may open the door to unclean spirits. Children experiment with sex the same as they experiment with many other activities.
- Pornography is another way that opens the door that may allow access to the participant or viewer.
Many people today try to convince us that homosexuality is normal and that this kind of behavior should be completely accepted as an alternative lifestyle, without bias. They march for gay rights, and many believe homosexual couples should have all the rights that heterosexual (straight) couples have, including getting married and raising children together.
Homosexuality is on the rise and spreading at an accelerated rate, and no one seems to know why. So the answer from many religious leaders seems to be acceptance and tolerance. Sadly, our federal government has not only tolerated and accepted this lifestyle, but also has embraced it. Many people, even Christians, are believing a lie.
I have had interviews with a number of gay men who openly have shared their views, values and concerns. One of their biggest fears is the disproportionate number of homosexuals with HIV (which causes AIDS). Yet, few seem willing to change their lifestyle because they believe the lie — that their lifestyle is normal, something with which they have been born, and something over which they have no control or choice! Many of them have been married previously and some have biological children. Most are open with their families about their sexual preference. Surprisingly, however, most say they would not want their children to have the same lifestyle.
Nearly all interviewed conceded they began to experiment and participate between ages thirteen and sixteen. Many reported molestation from another male (often a family member) as early as four or five years old. However, they rarely make the connection between the fact that they experimented (or were molested) and the fact that they are now homosexual.
Bisexuality and prostitution are also contributing to the rampant spread of homosexuality! I am sure that many people who are promiscuous are probably not even aware that some of their sexual partners have been bisexual. How could you know for sure? Even if you asked that question, the answer might not be honest. If you are promiscuous, you are not only open to undesirable, sexually-transmitted diseases, but also all kinds of sexually-transmitted perverse spirits.
God calls homosexuality/lesbianism an abomination. He even destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah completely, all because of the evil sexual perversion and homosexuality that had totally corrupted the inhabitants of these two cities. This now infamous story recorded in Genesis 19:1–29 follows (this quote is a bit long, but it is charge with so much spiritual truth that must be examined in its entirety):
Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.” And they said, “No but we will spend the night in the open square.” But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally [sexually].” So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.” And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.’’ So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door. Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.” So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking. When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.” Then Lot said to them, “Please, no, my lords! Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.” And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.” Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.
God says sexual activities with a person of the same gender is abnormal, the work of the flesh, influenced by demons. But God, in His infinite mercy, desperately desires to save people who engage in such demonically-influenced sins of the flesh as well.
Homosexuality is not caused by a gene people are born with, nor is it the product of a person of the opposite sex trapped in the wrong body, as many would argue, as if God, the Giver of Life, could so err.
Homosexuality can be transmitted through spiritually unlawful and immoral sexual contact with a person of the same sex, through sexual activity with someone who is bisexual, or passed from parent to child through spiritual heredity. It is an unnatural act.
It is sin (a stronghold and a curse), and it is passed on and on and on, unless and until there is intervention by the Spirit bringing cessation to its otherwise perpetuating stream. Men or women, boys or girls, who are raped or seduced by someone who has a homosexual spirit will often become influenced by this spirit themselves. That is not always the case, however. Sometimes this victim is used simply to pass these spirits on to another suitable candidate.
Homosexual spirits are driving their human “hosts” to push for legal (equal) rights of all sorts, particularly in American society today, including pursuing their agenda in schools as a moral and acceptable alternative lifestyle. The more successful they are, the greater the chances that the demon spirit of perverseness which produces homosexuality can be passed on and on even more quickly because of its acceptance.
Nowhere in the Bible does God make provision for an alternative sexual lifestyle outside of marriage between a man and a woman.
Many homosexuals will pay another person for sexual services. The person who provides the service will also pay, but in a different way. The spiritual price tag is high and the curse will spread. Future generations will also pay the price of this sin, which the Bible clearly says is an “abomination to God.”
In every culture and level of society, homosexuals and lesbians carry the same look and actions. Why? The same kind of spirit — Catamite, Effeminate, Sodomite — was passed on to another suitable candidate! There is a contamination and control of the body that can often be identified by apparent outward signs, because the demons are smug and haughty and pleased to be in control of their human hosts. To be free of this difficult, controlling spirit, one must be purged (flushed out) and cleaned willingly by binding the demonic spirit, casting it out, and by faith applying the power of the cleansing blood of Jesus.
Spiritually unlawful sex of any kind may result in demonic influence or control. Sodom and Gomorrah were cursed with a devastating curse, as are other cities and nations who accept these so-called “alternative lifestyles” of homosexual interrelations. Wholesale sin! God will not allow any society or nation to continue indefinitely but will give every opportunity to repent before judgment day.
The Internet may be the ultimate source of world information. This is the Information Age, and the technology is wonderful as well as useful, in varying degrees, for education, business, et cetera. But Satan has turned part of this technology into a highway full of snares, traps and pitfalls. Once again men and women, by choice and curiosity, have found the winding and wide-open road of pornography available to them at the touch of a button or a keystroke. They can indulge in the privacy of their homes, no longer embarrassed by going to a video store or a triple-X movie theatre. Now nearly a person can stealthily view every form of smut and perversion in existence in the privacy and anonymity of their home without anyone else knowing about it, which itself is part of the addicting intrigue.
The stronghold of addiction to pornography can be played over and over again in one’s mind and body. It engenders a physical hormonal addiction that produces essentially the same effect in the human body as chemical narcotics such as heroine. A sample is not enough for many, because once they taste of the forbidden fruit and their body experiences the hormonal rush it produces, they may not be able to satisfy the driving force of uncontrolled and insatiable lust that grips their souls.
These same spiritual forces that control a person through lust and perversion have a collaborative agent who works hand-in-hand with them. It’s called rape or sexual assault, and it is violent and very dangerous. This is a powerful, violent spirit that drives the rapist or sexual assailant to violate innocent victims, and they derive sadistic pleasure in doing so that usually cannot be subsequently contained. Rape and sodomy are not solely the work of the flesh. There is a spiritual force covertly working through the rapist or sexual assailant that actually has no interest at all in and derives no pleasure from the sex act itself. The rapist may think it’s his own uncontrolled desire of sex that drives him, but it’s really not; rather, it is a diabolical demon merely using its human host to defile and devastate its victims!
I read a recent newspaper article about Dennis Rabbitt, the man arrested and charged as the notorious “South Side Rapist” in St. Louis, Missouri. Rabbitt was quoted as having told the officers he had been possessed by a demon! This man was charged with approximately twenty-two attacks over a ten-year period.
Spiritual forces want to infect, impregnate, and manifest themselves in their victims, with the goal of gaining a foothold that will give them access to more candidates of victimization. Spirits will go to great lengths to infiltrate and proliferate their vileness through any means — much like the microscopic germs, bacteria, or viruses causing diseases. The sexual organs are a conduit, or passageway they can use. Through the conduits of the mind and the body, whether by force, seduction or willful submission, one can receive everything unclean that the other person has to pass on and vice versa.
How does a person feel after they have been violated by rape or sexually assaulted? Only the person raped or sexually assaulted can truly know what it feels like. However, women, for whatever reason, more often than men, almost always report feeling unclean, and often taking multiple showers or baths afterwards, yet still being unable to stop the feeling of uncleanness. They say they feel dirty, shameful and violated, and many times develop low self-esteem and eventually become consumed with bitterness. They may feel unwanted, outcast by society or even rejected by their own husbands. Divorce is often the result because either one or both are unable to cope with the devastating psychological and spiritual effects of the sexual assault. Many turn to drugs, alcohol or even prostitution, in an attempt to anesthetize themselves from the internal shame and pain. Some commit suicide.
Matthew 8:28–32 says that even animals are so traumatized and distressed by demonic incursion that they sometimes resort to self-destruction in an attempt to rid themselves of the internal upheaval:
When He had come to the other side, to the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two demon-possessed men, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that no one could pass that way. And suddenly they cried out, saying, “What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?” Now a good way off from them there was a herd of many swine feeding. So the demons begged Him, saying, “If you cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine.” And He said to them, “Go.” So when they had come out, they went into the herd of swine. And suddenly the whole herd of swine ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and perished in the water.
The swine were so repulsed and traumatized by the unclean demonic spirits in them that they became crazed and committed suicide!
Many people under the influence of drugs or alcohol will do things they would not do any other time. They become bold and brave under the influence, making it easier for what’s actually controlling them to do its dirty work. Violence, lust and perversion can all be triggered or enhanced by the effects of drugs and/or alcohol.
Sexual demons can also come on to a person while they are sleeping. They are described in Webster’s dictionary in the following way:
Incubus—”an evil spirit that lies on person(s) in their sleep; one that has sexual intercourse while they are sleeping.” This spirit will take on the form of a man in order to have intercourse with women.
Succubus—”a demon that takes on a female form in order to have sexual intercourse with men while they are asleep.”
These evil spirits can also work with members of the same sex and can produce seducing, whoredom, and other perverse strongholds. In Deuteronomy 22:5 we read, “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your God.” Here we have a Biblical reference to transvestism, another perverse and spiritually abominable human behavior.
Sexual strongholds are perpetuated by deceiving (demonic) spirits of perverseness and whoredoms. That spiritual veil of deception must be lifted before the person will be able to receive deliverance. Unfortunately, as we have stated throughout this book, any stronghold or curse may be passed on to the innocent victims of successive generations unless it is broken for good. God’s awesome power and His unlimited grace are sufficient to deliver anyone who truly desires freedom from this (or any other) curse. I believe that person must truly want to be free, however, before it can happen.###
