Many are inquiring, who have dissociation, how to test, spiritually, to determine if a part is truly a part (and not an evil spirit).
Holy Scripture gives us some spiritual tests that could be utilized in determining if you are dealing with a demon or a broken part of yourself. These spiritual tests work as we have used them on many thousands throughout the globe.
The first test is found in 1 John 3:
“We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death.”
If you are involved in a deliverance session and you’re having great difficulty determining if you’re dealing with a demon or a genuine broken part, ask this question:
*Do you love and worship Jesus Christ, who is eternal God?
Demons do not love and adore Jesus. They will not admit it, as love is foreign to them, as they are evil, inherently. However, there has been a few occassions where a demon stated they “loved Jesus.” Them even saying this is truly remarkable as it takes incredible demonic resistance to repeat those words. But they say it with disdain and in a hateful tone (ensure you discern the tone of the voice as genuine parts will lovingly tell you they adore and worship Christ). I have never encountered a demon who lovingly told me they adore Jesus. Never! 99.9% of the time they won’t even utter those words!
The second test is found in 1 John 4:
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming…”
Genuine parts can be brought to Jesus. When they do come to Jesus, they will acknowledge Jesus has come in the flesh as God. Demons will not repeat these words ~ I… “acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh.” Most demons will not say these words. If a demon does say these words. Ask this question:
*Do you believe this as a personal article of belief?
The third test is found in Galatians 5:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
Demons will NOT exhibit the fruit of the Spirit but genuine parts can and will, in time (if the core person has been born again). This is another means to determine if one is a demon or a broken part; is to observe the fruit of their tongue, actions, etc.
Utilize these tests to determine if you are dealing with an genuine part or an evil spirit. Utilize all three if necessary. They are true tests that have stood the time as they stem from the very heart of God.
