16Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved." 18She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so troubled that he turned around and said to the spirit, "In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!" At that moment the spirit left her.
He dealt with the distraction directly. Many who are tormented of this spirit do not. They react. They manifest in the spirit of distraction.
Some of the manifestations of the Spirit of Detraction (Proverbs 6:19), according to Angela Greenig:
Hurtful, Fickle, Disagreeable, Discord, Opposition, Strife, Clashing, Disharmony, Division, Defamation, Slander, Blame, Censure, Sarcasm...
"This spirit never allows lives to continue in peace, but likes to disturb it. This one breaks down family relationships and will attempt to destroy all things that are good...every day I pray and bind up all lies, the Perverse spirit, and Detraction. The Lying spirit is bound so that truth will prevail in all situations. The Perverse (spirit) is bound so there will be no twisting of words or actions, or offenses to come in. The binding of Detracting is so that these three spirits don't railroad myself or my family, friends, or ministry."
If you are under stress and are in ministry, you must take authority over this. Stress will immobilize you or worse cause you to react to the stress by manifesting in the spirit of distraction according to the list above.
The counteraction to the spirit of Distraction is intentional calm and dealing with the tormentor directly.
Benny Hinn is being tormented by the spirit of distraction. He is hindered. I hope he gets well soon. We need his ilk among us. But not like he is right now.
