Jesus and the Teaching of the Seven Unclean Spirits

by Joshua Tilghman on November 21, 2013

Jesus cast out demonHave you ever wondered what Jesus meant when he states that the unclean spirit who leaves a man comes back with seven others more wicked than the first? The early church and Hollywood have given us wrong impressions about unclean spirits. Also known as demons, these entities aren’t the intelligent, self-conscious beings that go around looking for people to possess. Let’s review verses 24-26 in the eleventh chapter of Luke’s gospel and then we’ll dig into the nature of unclean spirits and find out what Jesus was really talking about.

“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And, when he cometh, he find it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of the man is worse than the first” (Luke 11:24-26).

The Nature of Unclean Spirits and Demons

You have probably heard the expression, “Everyone has their own demons.” There’s more truth in this saying than the beings often depicted in movies, at least from the Biblical perspective. Demons, or unclean spirits, make up the evil urges of our lower natures. They are automatic forces of the ego on the astral (emotion and desire) plane. They are the instinctual, habitual impulses that are in opposition to spirit and our spiritual attempts to raise consciousness. They can gain strength, especially the longer certain habits are repeated.

I recently had a conversation with someone who was adamant that demons were intelligent, spiritual beings totally separate from us that went around trying to possess people. But this doesn’t make sense in the grander scheme of things. Imagine an intelligent being that knew its ultimate fate was to be defeated by God and thrown in the Lake of Fire in eternal torment. Would it really continue a battle it knew it couldn’t win? When discussing this point, the other person stated that a demon’s hatred of God was so great that they couldn’t help but to continue their destructive ways. But isn’t this the exact definition of an unintelligent force? A habit that is so instinctual it has no other choice but to continue on its current behavior? That doesn’t sound like an intelligent being that has any will of its own to me. It sounds a lot like an instinctual, blind and stubborn habit!

When I brought this to their attention, the other person brought up the example of Jesus casting out a demon into a herd of swine. As the story goes, the swine then jump off a cliff and all of them are killed. But again, this backs up the fact that Biblical demons are the instinctual, habitual impulses in opposition to spirit. Pigs represent the desire nature within us. It’s symbolic of the desire for nothing but the carnal nature, which is why the demons begged Jesus to go into the swine. And why would a demon, who asked to inhabit a pig, throw the body it possessed off a cliff and destroy it anyway? I think the answer is obvious, don’t you?

The Christ within us is the higher spiritual force that drives out the lower desire nature within us. The demons within simply can’t remain when the Christ within is in the process of being born.

The Unclean Spirit Walking in Dry Places

So what about Jesus’ teaching in our first quote? Notice how Jesus says that when an unclean spirit leaves a man, it walks through dry (waterless) places seeking rest. The dry place Jesus speaks of is a symbol of error and falsity as compared to the truth (moist) places. Our habitual desire nature on the astral-mental level manifest in certain mental conditions that remain absent of truth (water). When a man gains the right knowledge, he can begin learning how to crucify the desire-nature. Jesus wants us to realize that when an unclean spirit leaves (part of the habitual desire nature being conquered), we have to continue bearing the cross until we have fully crucified the lower nature or else we will suffer another round of birth and death.

The Seven More Wicked Spirits, Chakras and Reincarnation

Jesus states that the unclean spirit who leaves and doesn’t find rest returns to the same house (man’s bodies) and finds it swept and garnished. Why does the unclean spirit return with seven others? Jesus’ use of the number seven is not arbitrary. This is a reference to the seven main chakras along the spinal column, or tree of life. It’s also another subtle yet profound Biblical teaching revealing reincarnation. Man’s seven chakras serve the purpose of receiving, storing, processing and disseminating information / energy between our spiritual and physical bodies. The physical life is in the blood, but man could not be a conscious being without chakras with which to connect his etheric, astral, mental, and causal bodies.

The seven unclean spirits represent the habitation and blockages of negative energy in the seven main chakras. The unclean spirit finds the body of man swept and garnished because, in the next round of birth and death, the physical vessel starts anew and the new house (body) is another opportunity for life on the physical plane (swept clean and garnished). At first the house is clean, but as the man or women did not conqueror the lower nature of his ego in the previous life, he or she will contain some of the same energetic conscious imprints that still have to be conquered. In other words, although new opportunity and physical life is given, old habits still remain.

The seven unclean spirits represent blockages that can also be compared to the seven deadly sins, and it is karma which gives rise to the seven deadly sins.

The Seven Deadly SinsThe seven deadly sins are:

  1. Lust
  2. Gluttony
  3. Greed (avarice)
  4. Laziness (sloth)
  5. Wrath
  6. Envy
  7. Pride

Below is hot they relate to the seven chakras filled with negative information and energy.

  1. The Root chakra: represents lust, and the fear of not having.
  2. The Sacral chakra: represents gluttony, and the guilt as a result of selfishness.
  3. Solar Plexus chakra: represents greed, and the shame that results.
  4. The Heart chakra: represents sloth, a spiritual laziness which rejects the grace of God.
  5. The Throat chakra: represents wrath, lies, and hate
  6. Third Eye chakra: represents envy, and the illusion of lack that others might have, ultimately resulting in sorrow.
  7. The Crown chakra: represents pride, and ultimately the attachment of self, perhaps the deadliest of all.

King Solomon provides parallels to the seven deadly sins in Proverbs 6:16-19:

“These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that deviseth wicked imiginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discard among brethren.”

In Galatians 5:19-21, St. Paul also lists the deadly sins. Although they constitute more than seven as a list, they fall under the seven categories already listed. The scripture states:

“Now the works of the flesh (ego) are manifest, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idoltry, withcraft, hatred, variance, emulation, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, revellings, and such like…”

Of course this post wouldn’t be complete without listing the seven virtues. You can compare and contrast them to the seven deadly sins and see how they may relate to each chakra. When a man or women replaces the seven deadly sins with the seven virtues of life they are well on their way to crucifying the lower man and gaining higher consciousness. The seven virtues are as follows:

  1. Chasity
  2. Temperance
  3. Clarity
  4. Diligence
  5. Patience
  6. Kindness
  7. Humility

Remember, the seven virtues come from thoughts and emotions that vibrate on a much higher frequency. May we all strive to birth them within.

Blessings!

I admit it, I’m dumb… please answer this:

And why would a demon, who asked to inhabit a pig, throw the body it possessed off a cliff and destroy it anyway? I think the answer is obvious, don’t you?

Kevin,

Sorry, I was probably a little confusing there. I simply meant that the traditional understanding of a demon contradicts its actions in those scriptures. It wouldn’t have happened.

I have only given this a very quick read so please excuse me if my ignorance is showing.
I have been invaded by demons & I cannot make them go, not even in Jesus’ name, but I have found ways to make their stay very unhappy. If I read what I think that I read, these are real individual beings. They expected Jesus to punish themselves by banishing them to the pit. They crave bodies & while humans are their favorites, they prefer animals to none at all. They did not expect the pigs to stampede. They used to try to hinder my prayers by being very noisy. I began to stop & harass them about their situation. They threw away the glories of heaven to just buzzzzz around myself. I point out the fact that they don’t have any power but their noise over me. I have all the power because I have the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit backing me, & all that they have is useless noise. I make fun of the fact that fear is the only power that they could have over me but because I am protected by the Holy 3 they can only make noise. They pretend that they don’t mind & they keep it up until the phone rings, or I get busy doing something else but when I come back to my prayers they keep mighty quiet. By the way; they are very upset that I am writing this. They are making a lot of noise trying to confuse me. I am not going to stop. I have a new, more powerful weapon which I am going to punish them with after I finish writing this. I go to a church that only serves the Lord’s supper about 4 times a year. I can only going to morning services & they moved it to evening. I complained to people about this & some told me that I can serve it to myself at home. I was skeptical at 1st, but I decided to try it. I know that the idea is to examine yourself & then take it in memorial to the Lord’s victory on the cross. I confess any sins that I slip & do as I make them. I have developed a program that is different but the evil ones hate it. I serve it with each meal, or snack every day. I hold the juice, & the flat bread in hand & I say, “Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me. Thank you for permitting these evil,lying hypocrite, would be murderers of you to cause your victorious, brilliant, bright red, warm blood flow from your victorious warm body onto your victorious cross. Thank you for permitting them to make you to feel the pain, the nails, the thorns, the abuse, & you stated on that cross & endured it all. Thank you for staying & taking it. It looks impossible but you did it. I then say, “I proclaim your death, burial, sacrifice, & resurrection until you come again.” & I drink the juice. I then say again that I proclaim, & I eat the bread. They are very upset & are making a lot of noise. I have been taking time out as I print this to make fun of how I can’t make them go, not even in Jesus’ name but they are in my house (They call the bodies that the squat in their house. I have been making fun of myself not being able to get rid of them, & letting it be known that putting up with them refusing to go that putting up with the Lord’s supper, & me telling people about how I treat them is the rent that they pay. Until I can afford a deliverance minister this is the story of their lives. Ta. Ta., I’m off to take the Lord’s Supper.

Josh,
I agree, embracing/birthing the “Virtues” and in addition “The Fruits of the Spirit” will resonate a very high frequency…
Adding to this would be Paul’s Corinthians 1:13, which resonates the highest frequency!!

“LOVE NEVER ENDS, LOVE CONQUERS ALL”
after all, that’s why we’re all here (man-kind), because we Believe!

Hold the light/frequency,

So, if we all have our inner demons to deal with? Is it safe to say that no demon can be in the Nirvana state that is heaven? That any demon undealt with requires another go round of this reality to attempt again the reign it under control?

Kevin, one who has reached the Nirvana state would have no more demons to conqueror, and yes, demons have to be dealt with in this life.

David,

By simply breaking the bad habits. The best way is replacing the bad habits with good ones. Sometimes it’s hard to confront a habit head on by just resisting it. That’s why I recommend finding something positive to replace it with. Changing the way you think about something is immensely important. Meditation also helps. Even exercising and eating right helps. But remember the main battle is in the mind. Once a bad habit is replaced by a good one, it’s hold over you will begin to diminish.

Josh, Kevin and David,
Unfortunately, we are not just confronting with any demons we have created but also those of our ancestors/DNA, if it is not cleared before our lifetime, part of our mission is to help clear it for them…keeping in mind just how far your family has survived on this plane of our existence, WOW!
On the definition of Sin, essentially it is “missing the mark” or “marker”, if missed for whatever reason’s, emotional conflict, karmic manifestation, etc. etc., it will definitely present itself again, as the helix spirals…for God’s Love for us never ends and the “Hero” within oneself will eventually be Victorious!
Meditating, Contemplating, as Josh has suggested will bring forth a greater understanding making one’s JOB here somewhat smoother with less angst. Silence, Patience, Prayer and being in nature also can aid us in the question, what is this all about?. Know your better Angels!
Love and Light,
Sparks

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; cit is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

How does that verse work out in the esoteric interpration? It seem like to me we are the ones doing all the work to receive this state bliss. It seems like a lot of us doing besides having faith to enter the kingdom. The gift of the holy spirit is suppose to be free. Meaning we shouldn’t have to do anything receive it. All this work to pretty much to save ourselves and meet God and be one with him.

Joshua Tilghman December 27, 2014 at 12:25 pm

Omar, works are important as well. However, once we give in to the illusion of the ego, a transformation can begin to take place. Practicing meditation takes effort to begin, but the process that unfolds through daily practice is beyond the intellect and understanding and therefore can be said to be a power we receive through faith. Does this make sense?

Josh Bro…
I think all text and enlighted persons where try to teach us the same fact. Search your inner self, god is in you. I learned chakras from Shiva devoties. And I try to dig more in Hindu texts. After reading your Blog I realise one fact, all texts says the same. Now I really believe Jesus is also like Bhudha both are the persons who awakened the 7th chakra known as Sahasra or lotus chakra. On my research ” Why Hindus had more than one god or have 33crore gods”. Now it’s clear to me. Each person is different from one another. And these goes are the path to show you your innerself where reall god lays. Lord Shiva is the one shows us meditation. And also he said people are blind in this world only when they meditates they could achive the true knowledge about this universe. First I was shocked reading some of your lines. Same facts are said in vedas. No wonder why foreigners are respecting Indian culture in a unique way.

I’ve one thing to ask you?

Is their are spirits in this world. I know demons and god is within our self. What I want to know is, Is there are any external spirits are wondering around us. Do you beleive that we can summon jesus or shiva through our meditation.? I think you can answer me to this because you think more differently than me. I’ve also read Bible but I couldn’t even extract this much from it. May be I’m not able to read like you did, so help me and answer my question. Thank you 🙂 🙂

Sujith,

Thanks for commenting. Are the external spirits in this world? Good question. Yes, I believe so. In fact, I think it takes some time for the mental and emotional body to die after physical death. There is a lot of mystery surrounding this topic, but it had always made sense to me especially if one believes that consciousness is not created in the physical brain. As far as summoning Jesus through meditation, I believe it would be possible to have access to an external consciousness through this method, but I wouldn’t recommend trying it. Meditation shouldn’t be used to reach someone who had died. Blessings.

If somebody can help me out id greatly appreciate it because im stuck between a rock and a hard place and im sort of confused and i want to be sure im doing the right thing. So ive done a lot of my own research and had my own experiences with different belief systems and religious practices and i feel as if they all point fingers at each other and say that the other belief or practice is wrong or evil and that theirs is the only correct one without even learning or understanding what the other belief system is actually representing and practicing. I on the other hand have seen and felt BOTH GOOD AND EVIL, BOTH LIES AND DECIET, REALITY AND TRUTH in ALL of the belief systems and religions ive been a part of. They all seem to be missing the point of their religion. For example, what you said about what the chakras and what they represent all seem to be different then what i have learned practicing balancing them. And a part of balancing them is all about unconditionally loving and caring for the earth, your tribe(human family), your body and every other living thing and most of all GOD. ALL of those things listed are GODS creation, am i wrong?
So here are the chakras accordong to what i have learned.

1St Root- Foundation, loving and caring for the earth for it provides food and shelter for this physical existence. Loving and caring for your tribe and taking care of your physical body and earth and not filling them with toxins.

I fail to see why these things would be considered evil when they teach you to love and take care of the earth and your physical body that are BOTH GODS CREATIONS, therefore its teaching you to take care of GODS creation FIRST and FOREMOST.

2nd-sacral- creativity, joy, pleasure. Basically experiencing and showing gratiude and celebrating this beautiful opportunity GOD has givin us to be creators ourselves in the likeness of GOD for we are all GODS children correct? And GOD is the ultimate CREATOR correct? And this is also where we go from the tribe to one on one relationships.
Brother and brother, sister and sister, brother and sister, father and son, mother and daughter, and even husbands and wives.

3rd-solar plexus-the power and ability to be an individual. NOT a controlling aggressive power, but a an ability to acknowledge differences but trancending these challenges of polarity and willing to take action in the face of change. And here we also go from tribal love and communication, one on one love and communication, to self love and communication. I like to call this solitude. This is where we go off on our own and learn about ourselves. Its about the power to be an individual, to be unique, while celebrating our continuing connection with all humanity and life.

4th-heart-This is about relating with compassion, unconditionally with love to others, but not dependant on others. Its about being, enduring, and constant, regardless of externals. Its also concerned with forgiveness for which we accept another for doing their best.

5th-throat-this one is all about sound,communication: not everyday chatter but purposeful thoughts and speech. Personal expression combined with resposibility. Balancing this chakra means choosing words that have value and weight to communication. This is also where we learn to express hurt or anger, but do so in such a way that doesnt diminish or defile anyone or anything. To recognize the power of the written and spoken word and taking responsibility for them and their feelings. Communication is a wonderful gift from GOD, do not abuse it. On addition to sound, this chakra is connected with hearing. Practicing active listening and developing the outer ear for the subtle inner to develope to better hear when GOD has sent you a message. When the throat chakra is balanced, thought and speech slow down and true communication begins to take place.

6th-third eye- This is where we stop just going off of “what everyone else says” or “by the book” so to speak.This is that “little guiding voice” or “hunches” or when we “know things” or “feel things” we cannot rationalize. We often ignore these feelings these days to suffice our “just do what your told” mindset of society. This chakra also teaches to silence the cacophony and noise of everyday life and to be still. This is what most call meditation. Or i like to say, listening to GOD.

7th-crown- This is not a destination or a conclusion, but a rebirth as we prepare for the constant unfolding of new experiences. Representation of infinity and recognition of the Divine Creator, for GOD is infinite. This chakra further expands the concepts of the throat chakra for communication and the third eye for that live streaming voice-communication and interconnectedness with all things. This is also where we learn to stay focused on specific goals, but continue being aware that there are infinite possibilities, more than the human mind alone can ever fathom, through which those goals might be realised. Therefore open to and embrace the unexpected. Rather than being self centered, you learn to accept how little you really know and begin to trust your connection to the Divine Creator of all things.

I feel as if everyone should be practicing these things, not “in the name of GOD”, but actively participating these things FOR GOD.

So please please PLEASE, help me to understand why most western religions like christianity believe everything i just explained to be evil.

Logan, I wouldn’t worry about why they see many metaphysical teachings as evil. You have to remember that Christianity in the traditional sense has many elements that aren’t based on anything but that: tradition. It’s only natural for many Christians to reject metaphysical teachings as evil.

So would it not be better to not banish the 1 spirit so that it doesn’t return with 6 more. I believe Jesus said this some where that it is better to learn to control your demons then let them loose.

I have been researching the seven chakras. If i open or balance them would this allow demons to pass through me?

Dear Padre: First time I stumbled upon your site. It couldn’t have come @ a better time as I truly believe God provides and works in a multitude of mysterious ways. Was a very active member of “organized RELIGION” for 30+ years until I divorced my abusive MD husband. His religious activities boiled down to occasional large checks dropped in the offering plate. But I was the one in the wrong for not honoring my vows to love, honor & obey thru the good, bad & ugly, plus raise up 2 impressionable little boys in that environment as this is how to treat your wife (after all – extrapolated scripture does say man is head of the household). When I became suicidal from this continuing state of Hell, it was God who pulled my head out of my sewage regions & put me on the right track by learning about & getting involved in unorganized spiritual pursuits: shamanic journeying, meditation, chakra awareness/cleansing & control along w scripture reading sometimes just for fun, but most often in search of guidance. I was quite content/ happy w my path until 5 years ago when I got gravely ill. Due to malfeasance (what God has put together let no man put asunder) my health has been declining since which I’ve been dealing w thru the answer of a prayer – “Adjust-Readjust-Repeat.” Then trouble really arrived literally on my doorstep a year ago. I had just moved to a new town & new abode when I met the groundskeeper shoveling my sidewalk. In introducing myself, he said he noticed I Was walking w a cane & could he pray for me because he was a faith healer. He even gave me his card before I said yes scurrying indoors out of the coming blizzard. Thought nothing about it as to me prayer is prayer, in this case in absentia because I left him outside to finish his job & get home out of the storm. Occasionally saw him out & about & would sometimes ask his advice where to locate this or that, or to help me move things my doctors had limits on. This included hanging pictures- one in particular, that being a picture of my animal totems, in the conformation of a cross, by a dear lady who belonged to my shamanic journeys women’s prayer group. As time went by the grounds keeper & I became friends discussing our beliefs & practices. He even took me to church w him several times to see if I would like to join his faith family. Then my health took an even greater dive, confounding doctors, myself & above all the faith healer. He concludes my perilous health is because I’m demon possessed & not a real believer (months later the doctors found the cause). But in that process the next thing I know, on a day that pain medication wouldn’t touch- faith healer shows up @ my door unexpectedly w 2 women, 1 being my cousin. They had come to pray for me in my time of need. What that turned out to be was an ambush and @ home kidnapping-deliverance ministry(exorcism by Catholic terms) that lasted 11 grueling hours. This much I will give them-they were sneaky & determined to rid me of my “demons” as evidenced by my lack of pain, which didn’t cease. At that point good old cousin turned to her illustrated (comic) book of demons conferring w her friend, called “Pastor C,” – “rebuking this one – that didn’t work-should we try that one?” And the rebuking would commence all over again until we’d move onto the next demon & yet another unsuccessful rebuking. At about hour 10 I started having chest pain, told them to stop (so I could take a nitroglycerin)- was loudly told no & continued to be held upright while my cousin & the pastor referenced the comic book again. At that point I collapsed into one of my holders/handlers arms & down to the floor. They didn’t call 911, but they did let sit a few minutes & have a sip of water before doing another hour of “you gotta standup or be held up” prayers-without rebukings. After all this is done & I’m parked on the couch trying to regain my strength & sanity- faith healer, cousin, & pastor grab my bag of unopened M&M’s from under the demon comic book and without asking follow faith healer into my bedroom to eat my candies while giving my animal totem picture the “true believers” scrutiny. Conclusion: that picture was PROOF that I was practicing witchcraft- which I wouldn’t even contemplate, but will admit to burning a few potatoes in my day. And because I was still in pain, I was still: demon possessed plus a chocolate addict (which I had intended to make into cookies until the True Believers “Christian”Hunger Games commenced). Their parting directions: no more chocolate, no Tv other than religious or PG programs, no movies except PG or a rare PG-13, no secular music ever, religious music 24/7 to keep evil thoughts from entering, & regular church attendance @ churches of their suggestion only. Ya-sure-you betcha! And when do the death squeals of rabbits being butched begin (remember Waco, Tx tactics)? All I could think as I closed the door on their departure “What would Jesus say to all of this?” The smirky laughter, male voice I heard said, “Let the door hit them on the way out!” So now you know my unfortunate run -ins w “wolves in shepherds clothing.” Personally, based on 40 years successful practice (patient/families perceptions, not mine) as a psychiatric RN- I think all 3 are on the deep end of the narcissism pool, & dangerously sociopathic (for caring less about my need to stop) & only focused on their personal/group need to continue/finish their hidden thoughts/agendas. Can’t find nothing in scripture justifying that perspective. Learned a few weeks later the faith healer believed he could pray me through a heart attack (hence no 911); & should I have died then he would have tried raise/me-from-the-dead-prayers. When I confronted him about this whole abomination, & using me as a prayer experiment- he accused me of saying hateful things in telling the truth & holding him/them accountable. He also refused to answer how long he would have waited to call the authorities had I died. I suspect never- close the door, pretend/deny we were ever here, & let my late rent payment & stinking dead body get the authorities involved. What has driven me obsessed was their witchcraft declaration because I have my animal totem picture on my wall. To me it’s like a senior portrait, & much more attractive because of no zits. Please Padre- could you expand & clarify this term “witchcraft” as used in the Bible (Galatians 5: 19-21). I’m so confused in finding no answers on my own-I’m almost afraid to laugh or smile in fear of being called a witch for one goofy perception or another. God bless you in your journeys & on days when there seems to be no warmth in or out-access the Son shine within.

I had the Lord’s Supper. They had gotten pretty quiet but my writing to you disturbes them greatly. I don’t know exactly why. They have been being pretty quiet most of the time because when they harass me I take the Lord’s Supper.
I am pretty tired & sleepy so I hope that I make sense. I think that I may have read that the demons can’t be in the same body as the Holy Spirit. If I read wrong I am wasting our time.
If you said that you are wrong.
We are copies of the Jewish Temples. The Temple has a Holy of Holies that no sin can enter. The priest is the only one that can enter & he cannot have any sin on him or he will die. They tied something to his leg so that if he died they could pull him out.
We have our Holy of Holies. When we get baptized & receive the gift of the Holt Spirit, it enters our, sealed up tight, Holy of Holies. No demon can get into it. However, they can get into our souls; sanctuary, & our flesh; outer court. As deliverance minister Don Dickerman asks, “Where does sin go when we sin? The fact is that if some guy is reading Playboy, he is sinning. The sin does not just roll off. It enters our souls & stays there until repented & forgiven. It opens the seal/door, & lets the demons in & most of the demons are not as easy to get rid of as commanding them out in Jesus’ name. Most people need the help of a deliverance minister.
