4 Biblical Marks of a Woman with Demonic Influence Sent to Attack You

Revelation 2:20

Satan could try to attack you directly in an all-out confrontation. However, in most cases, that’s the last thing he will try to do. Before he reveals his presence, he will usually attack you from the shadows. Why? Because it’s much harder to defend against an enemy you don’t realize you have.

This is one of the reasons Satan uses his people to attack God’s people. We are so accustomed to interacting with others, we often drop our guard. And when Satan is trying to attack a man, he often chooses one of his women to do the job. We must be on guard against this type of attack (Ephesians 6:10-12).

Therefore, here are 4 biblical marks of a woman with demonic influence sent to attack you.

1. If a Woman Is Trying to Lead You and Make You Submit to Her, that’s a Strong Sign She’s Being Influenced By Demonic Activity to Attack You

While Satan tempted Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, his first temptation was actually for Eve to lead and for Adam to follow. This is why 1 Timothy 2:12-14 states:

“I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.”

This verse is not blaming Eve and giving Adam a free pass. Rather, Paul is making it clear that in the church and in the home, God has called the man to lead. When the woman leads and the man follows, bad things happen. It is a denial of God’s design. Notice that before Eve was even created, God gave Adam the rules to follow (Genesis 2:16-18). God wanted Adam to lead and Eve to follow.

To be clear, a man should not try to make a woman submit to him. God tells a woman that it is her choice to submit (Ephesians 5:22). And in one sense, all Christians are to submit to each other in that we must put each other’s needs above our own (Ephesians 5:21).

Nonetheless, when it comes to the relationships between men and women in the church and in the romantic context, you can be sure a woman is under demonic influence if she thinks she should lead you and that you should submit to her.

2. If a Woman Is Using Her Religious Affiliations to Manipulate You, that’s a Strong Sign She Has Demonic Influence in Her Life

For example, if you are a newer Christian and you meet a woman in church who preys on you and tries to control you through her spiritual knowledge, this is a bad sign.

Or perhaps she has grown up in the church and has gained a really good reputation, but once you start to date her you realize she is secretly worldly and using her connections in the church to bully you now that you two are no longer together.

Sometimes a woman will know all the right religious words to say in the pre-dating stages to trick you into thinking she is a genuine Christian woman.

2 Corinthians 11:14-15 warns us, “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.”

3. If She Mimics the Tactics of Jezebel, that’s a Strong Sign of Demonic Influence

As I discuss in my article called 4 Biblical Marks of a Jezebel Who Wants to Ruin a Man, there is no mention of the “spirit of Jezebel” that is so often mentioned in Christian communities these days. However, there is a historical figure in Scripture named Jezebel who is also referred to in a symbolic way to identify someone with certain evil traits.

According to Scripture, a Jezebel will be marked by things like a hatred for God’s truth (1 Kings 16:30-32), the use of false accusations (1 Kings 21:1-16), manipulation through sexual seduction (Revelation 2:20), and the inciting of passive people into destructive sins (1 Kings 21:25, Revelation 2:20).

If a woman resembles that evil woman Jezebel, you can be sure she’s under demonic influence and was sent to attack you (James 3:14-15).

4. If This Woman Loves Her Sin and Hates When You Don’t Sin with Her, This Is a Strong Sign She’s Under Demonic Influence

People who love their sin are not content to sin alone. They want to take down as many people as they can. Why? Because they are following Satan and that’s what Satan wants (Ephesians 2:1-3). Therefore, we must take seriously the warning outlined in 1 John 3:7-9. It states:

“Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.”

If a woman wants to repent and follow God with you, that’s one thing. But don’t think you can save a woman. If she hates God and loves sin, she’s not for you. She’s for Satan. All you are going to do is tear yourself down. 1 Corinthians 15:33 states, “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company ruins good morals.’”
