Spiritual attacks can manifest in many shapes and forms. It can be subtle yet brutal. The fact is most people don’t even know or realize when they are being spiritually attacked.
For those who are religious, the concept is very real as nearly every type of religion acknowledges and refers to the concept of being spiritually attacked.
These “attacks” can last a very long time if not addressed. Over time the individual under attack will start to suffer physical and mental ailments. Ranging from depression to anxiety, ultimately breaking down one’s equilibrium.
When the balance gets tipped, the body responds. Your immune system gets affected which leaves you vulnerable to other illnesses. It’s a domino effect really.
Why does one get spiritually attacked?
There are endless possibilities and theories as to why, to be honest with you. Some people do put themselves out there a bit more which does make them more susceptible to such attacks. The main thing is to understand, that it needs to be treated as if it is an illness. And if not treated early on and consistently, the damage can be paramount.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
