A “monitoring spirit” is thought to be an evil spirit or demon that “monitors” someone’s behavior in order to inflict harm or pain on that person’s life, a monitoring spirit is also known as a watcher or a masquerading spirit.
Monitoring spirit can be sent by another demon, a witch, or anyone who knows how to use the spirit world. The spirits are said to keep an eye on what you do, how you do it, what you say, and who your friends are. They are there to get information that will help them carry out spiritual attacks, steal blessings, infect with sickness, sabotage success, and generally mess with the victim’s life.
There is the story of Paul and Silas as well as other followers of Christ being followed by a spirit. Because this spirit was used to monitor their movements and report back on the things they were doing we refer to this spirit or demon as a monitoring spirit.
16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.Acts 16:16-18 (KJV)
According to the Bible, the girl possessed a divination spirit. This is the adversary’s forgery of the prophetic gift. We can see that she was a slave girl, and the spirits are sometimes referred to as slave spirits or slave demons. This essentially means that she is gathering information for the benefit of someone else rather than for herself. Someone else was taking advantage of her.
Today, the same thing happens. People in your life may be gathering information about you in order to use it against you or pass it on to others who will use it against you. Working against your children, your ministry, your finances, your business, your marriage, and even your health is a bad idea. Whatever the case may be, they are not on your side. They are constantly inquisitive about your activities. Maintaining a record of your progress.
Have you ever wondered why you’re having the same problem over and over again? The same problems keep cropping up. It’s almost as if you’re having a deja vu moment? You always seem to lose your job around the same time of year. You go through a cycle of going up and then down. There appears to be a pattern to your life.
Well, it’s possible that you have a monitoring spirit watching your every move to ensure that you never arrive. You’re almost there, but not quite. It’s a close call, a narrowly missed success!
All of this can be broken apart. Consider what would happen if Paul didn’t stop the girl who was watching his every move. It’s clear that he didn’t recognize it as a spirit monitoring him until several days had passed.
What right did he have to be so sure? After all, she was doing the right thing by pointing people to Jesus. Everything appeared to be true and good, but the spirit with which it was carried out was not of God. If he didn’t cast that spirit out of his presence, he wouldn’t have been able to get as far with spreading the gospel as he did. In fact, when the owner of that girl realized he couldn’t use her to monitor people any longer, he made sure Paul and Silas were arrested. He’d had enough!
Yes, the enemy will be furious if you fall for his ruses. However, if you want to achieve your goals and break a cycle in your life, you must put an end to this.
