Anti-marriage spirits (entry: false beliefs)

Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.  (1 Timothy 4:1-3)

It is interesting to note that there are demonic spirits  responsible for the prohibition of marriage.  Marriage, the life long covenant of a loving relationship to share in the grace of life between a man and his wife was established by the will of God in the beginning. God declared that it is not good for a man to be alone. (see Genesis 2:18)

Satan is an opponent of the will of God.  Whatever is the will of God – satan desires to oppose.  Remember in Genesis chapter 3, the essence of the serpent’s conversation with Eve was to question the validity of what God said.  “Did God really say…?” said the serpent. (see Genesis 3:1)

Marriage is opposed in the same way.  There are many reasons why this is so.  However, the primary reason is that it is the will of God.  The enemy of our soul, satan opposes marriage because the word of God commissioned it.

When it comes to marriage, satan’s primary agenda is to keep those who are destined for it – out of it.  His agenda is to forbid their ENTRY.  Whatever is the will of God is a blessing to humanity in ways that we must take time to explore.  However, even before this exploration – we are clear that satan opposes it simply because it is the will of God.

In the quoted text we see that the demonic world, the system of satan actually tantalizes, deceives and draws people away from the will of God regarding several things – including marriage (seducing spirits).  In addition, satan produces false teachings and ideologies which again contradict the will of God (doctrines of devils).

Doctrines are teachings.  Those who master these teachings earn doctorates and are honoured to be called doctors.  Some of them are Doctors of the doctrines of devils.  We will explore these ideologies as God gives us ability.
