The following are symptoms of Python – The signs indicate he has achieved ground in your life:
a) keeping us from praying and worshiping
b) putting out our fire for God
c) luring us into isolation
d) causing us to ‘feel’ hopeless and defeated
e) trapping us in poverty or hindering us from prospering
f) luring us into self destructive behaviors or lifestyles – suicide
g) causing us to doubt or not comprehend God’s personal love for us
h) causing us to doubt the Word of God and the promises He has for us
i) causing us to be ineffective for Christ – loss of anointing
j) keeping us going in circles, getting nowhere with life
k) causing us to feel lethargic, indifferent, and apathetic about life or God
l) causing us to always feel rejected and violated, etc.
m) causing us to feel small, inadequate, incapable, inferior, insecure
n) causing us to walk by fear and not by faith, leaning on our own understanding
o) causing divisions in the body of Christ and marriages
p) thwarting or delaying us from walking in our purpose and call

r) keeping us wrapped up in our problems and less attentive to others
s)convincing us that God doesn’t care or that it’s His will…
t) our lives are a mess etc….
All of this, if not REALIZED and brought under the power of the Blood and cut off, will slowly, but SURELY kill us by constriction – suffocate us – will drain the life out of us and keep us disconnected to the manifest TRUTH of God’s promises and power!!!
How is it this singular dark force has so many attributes which are affiliated with so many types of evil workings/assaults?
Because this singular dark force is
THE FALSE PROPHET
aka: Counterfeit Holy Spirit
What? Who is the false prophet? He’s not supposed to come on the scene until the end when the Antichrist takes bodily form! Wrong! These two beasts which are spoken of in Revelations 12 and 13 have been here all along. The Lord showed me that just as the spirit of antichrist has been infiltrating the systems of earth since the Garden of Eden, the false prophet has, too! But still, who IS the false prophet?
Well, if what Satan does is a counterfeit to ALL that God does, and the first beast in Revelations is the spirit of antichrist which is Satan’s counterfeit of the true Christ, then, you got it… the 2nd beast must be the counterfeit of the true Holy Spirit!
Now consider this: What are all the characteristics and ‘jobs’ of the Holy Spirit in our lives? Next, ponder for just a moment… that if there were a Holy Spirit COUNTERFEIT, would he not have the complete opposite characteristics and ‘jobs’? Would he not be on a mission to imitate all the Holy Spirit does but in a dark way that pulls us away from truth instead of INTO truth where the Holy Spirit is always guiding us? Let’s review the following points:
The Holy Spirit: 1) Points the way to Christ
The Counterfeit(Python) 1) Points the way to false gods, false religion, idolatry and AWAY from Christ
2) Is the Comforter
2) Promotes FALSE comforts (self, idolatry, co-dependence, addiction, etc)
3) Gives guidance
3) Give FALSE guidance – into snares and destructive lifestyles and cults
4) Endows whom HE pleases with HOLY spiritual gifts for the edification of the body and deliverance of the world from darkness
4) Endows whom he pleases with false powers (sorcery, witchcraft, voodoo) for the tearing down of the body and cementing the world in darkness
5) Gives divine utterance (via tongues or words through the prophets)
5) Gives FALSE utterance (psychics, diviners, unsuspecting saints)
6) Unveils/illuminates/teaches the mysteries of scripture to those born of His Spirit
6) HIDES the truth of scripture – does everything to keep us OUT of the Word by distractions, oppression, authoring confusion or mental fogginess, sickness, lethargy and apathy
7) Lifts us up, puts a spring back into our step, refreshes, invigorates
7) Weighs people down, depletes them, wears them out, oppresses
8) Convicts us of sin – Unctions us to return to holiness
8) Promotes, undermines, waters down sin – says it’s okay
9) Gives direction, dreams & visions which train, equip,or lead us into our purpose
9) Thwarts the direction God wants us to walk in by sending us down wrong paths
10) Gives divine revelation, wisdom, knowledge, etc. which promotes Holy Kingdom truths and blesses the body and the world
10) Gives FALSE revelations, false wisdom which promotes dark agendas and leads us into deeper despair and farther from God
11) Authors miracles, healings & blessingswhich solidify/demonstrateGod’s love and truth
11) Steals miracles and healings and thwarts blessings to make God look like a liar or like He doesn’t love us as much as He truly does.Performs false miracles
12) And GIVES US BREATH, BREATHES LIFE INTO US
EMPOWERS US TO REIGN VICTORIOUS!
12) And TAKES OUR BREATH FROM US,
BRINGS US TO POWERLESSNESS!
