Overcoming the Spirit of Narcissism

“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

II Timothy 3:1-7 (NASB)

*****

At this stage in history; for anyone to deny that we are in the Last Days, is to reveal a gross measure of ignorance and a corresponding lack of spiritual discernment.  We are in fact in the last days, and the above excerpt of scripture underscores but one of many excerpts of scripture which are unfolding before our eyes.

Here in the West, to be a “lover of self” in the context of the prophecy above, is to be a Narcissist, by way of contemporary and generalized definition. The essence or roots of narcissism is a spiritual dynamic however, versus that of a clinical, secular designation. The secular designation therefore, is that of an attempt to define what is in actuality a demonic stronghold–the more advanced stronghold of which we will discuss shortly (Covert Narcissism).

Demons only inhabit a person when they’ve received a figurative license or invitation to do so.  And in the instance of narcissism, I have observed the invitation and/or license to typically come through 3 primary avenues, as reflective of my protracted experience not only as a counselor, but also as a self-inflicted victim at one stage in my life.

These 3 avenues are as follows:

1) That of a deep and unhealed wound wrought of neglect, abandonment and/or rejection.

2) That of the deeply-seated and prolonged suppression of unresolved sin, and, correspondingly, unresolved guilt, which is exacerbated by demonic condemnation.

3) The very dangerous state of “lukewarmness” as a Believer, spoken of in Revelation 3:16. For it is as we steadily ignore the gentle prodding of the Holy Spirit to cultivate intimacy with the Lord ongoing, and we thereafter resist His subsequent chastening, that we are released to our own devices and subject to a specific form of judgement in the form of mental illness spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:11: “…for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence…”.  The initial context of this verse speaks to non-Believers who continue to believe what is false.  I tend to believe it speaks more pointedly of those who instinctively knowthat what they are embracing is false.  I have equally observed this dynamic played-out in the lives of thousands of Believers as well, over several decades.

In the case of the rejection and abandonment wound, narcissism serves initially as a form of self-preservation, which takes on the form of serving and affirming one’sself–in the absence of such from others.  Over time, self-absorption grows. As it does, the door to our soul that was initially only slightly ajar, is ultimately flung wide-open, following which the demon of narcissism (i.e., obsessive love of self, in its base form) waltzes-in, unpacks its bags, sets-up camp, stretches its legs, and cultivates a multifaceted stronghold.

In the case of the prolonged suppression of unresolved sin, and corresponding terminal guilt and associated condemnation; one is predisposed to fabricating a hyper-spiritual exterior, whereby a person perpetually sells the world on their divine attributes and their super-human qualities, thus disarming any potential question otherwise. One thereafter perpetually seeks to draw attention to themselves, affording a perpetual spotlight under which they may continue to sell their hyper-spiritual state to the world about them.  As long as they continue to successfully sell all others about them, they successfully defer any potential scrutiny or questioning as to what may lay beneath.  Over time, the person ultimately “closes the sale” on their very selves–whereas the fabricated superficial or hyper-self becomes their reality.  At this stage, gross self-absorption ensues, along with deeply entrenched deceit and delusion.

And lastly, in the case of those straddling the fence of their faith, and marinating lives of lukewarmness by attempting to allow wanton carnality and marginal faith in Christ to “sleep in the same bed” together; a blanket invitation is released for the tentacles of 2 Timothy 3:1-7 to envelope their lives.  For the present reality is that the spiritual war being waged about us is far more dangerous than the average Believer can fathom.  And until we resolve to perpetually cling the Lord in daily intimacy with Him; while also through corresponding necessity, “dying daily” to our carnal selves; we willfully wander out from under the protective “shadow of His wings” (Psalm 91), and stumble into enemy fire–not unlike that of willfully wandering into enemy machine gun fire on a contemporary military battlefield. The end result of which is that of being riddled with bullet-like seeds of demonic infestation.

Deliverance from the above variations of narcissistic strongholds typically occurs in one of two ways: Firstly, and following the acknowledgement of one’s condition and the resolve to repent; opting to team with someone in deliverance ministry, to cast-out the roots of this mangy critter, followed thereafter by a willful turning (teshuvah) in the opposite direction.  And secondly, through self-deliverance.  James 4:7 says that “…if we resist the devil he will flee.”  This is the essence of self-deliverance–resisting (starving) the demon until he gets tired and moves on to the next house.

Self-deliverance is quite simple.  Below I will outline some cursory steps for performing such:

1) Establish a schedule of concerted fasting and prayer, perhaps for a few days leading up to a pre-scheduled time for your self-deliverance.  During this brief time of fasting and prayer (ideally a period of 3 days or more), and which can be a partial-fast; pray that the Holy Spirit reveal the tentacles of this stronghold, that you will have a focused inventory of what to renounce as you perform self-deliverance.

2)  As you engage your self-deliverance session, begin by taking communion, and reading John 6:51-58 (from a physical bible–will explain why, in a moment).  As you ingest the elements, ask the Lord to further free you from the Tree of the Knowledge and Good and Evil, and to further attach you to the Tree of Life–Y’shua (Jesus).

After first reading the excerpt from John, follow such with the elements.  Leave your bible open to this passage, and press it against your heart.  Hereafter, close your eyes, and proceed to breathe-in deeply, in through the nose, and out through the mouth.

3)  As you maintain the above posture, and with your eyes closed, picture in your mind’s-eye the Cross of Christ, and thereafter focus upon that image.  As you do so, verbally renounce the Spirit of Narcissism, while continuing to breathe deeply, in through your nose, and out through your mouth. Declare to it the authority of the Blood of Y’shua, and His Cross.  You can use the name of Jesus if you wish; I simply prefer Y’shua for deeply personal reasons, but of course Y’shua and Jesus are the same Person, and the demons know Him by both names (smiling).

4)  As you repeatedly exhale, the many tentacles of the Spirit of Narcissism will loosen, and will be expelled.  This process generally does not take more than 15 minutes or so. They often exit by making a person repeatedly yawn, belch, sneeze, cough or even flatulate.

5)  Following this session of communion and renunciation, do business with the Lord, by asking the Holy Spirit to invade those places in your spirit and soul which were previously manipulated by the demonic; invite Him to take full-habitation of your heart, and to thereafter guard-against re-habitation.  Ask Him to water the seeds of the authentic  Fruit of the Spirit in your heart (Galatians 5:22-24), which will counter the counterfeit components that were previously at work. The key is that to replace, not to keep vacant (see Matthew 12:43-45).  Our goal is to welcome the full habitation of the Holy Spirit’s working in our hearts, not to “sweep” our hearts clean, leaving them empty, as thereafter the “critters” will waltz right back, and wreck the house worse than before.

*****

Wholly counter to the above approach to self-deliverance, secular psychology and psychiatry seeks to remedy narcissism with a Cognitive approach, which attempts to free a person from the outside-in, through a change in thinking and outward behavior, when in fact the issue resides in our heart(s), and to be more specific: our heart-wound(s).  The only true freedom from such a stronghold is that from the inside-out, by addressing thespiritual component–which governs our cognition.  It is because of the above “ships passing in the night,” that tens of millions of people in the West have submitted themselves to secular counseling and therapy, as well as psychotropic meds, for much of their adult lives perhaps, to thereafter discover that near the end of their lives they had never been set-free of the strongholds their therapists had artfully masked through secular-humanistic “therapy” and medication, all the while reaping the spoils of insurance billing revenues.  Hello?

One of the more advanced forms of narcissism is categorized by secular therapists as “Covert Narcissism.”  In general terms, the secular definition does a fair job of defining the characteristics of such.  However, and again, their approach to addressing such is wholly useless in weeding-up and casting-out the demonic tentacles of such, which are very crafty about hiding within the deep recesses of our hearts during secular therapy, only to reappear down the road.

I have pasted below, a brief video addressing Covert Narcissism, which, again, is but one way to describe what is simply an advanced form of narcissism.  As you view this brief video, and as you would experience pangs of conviction (defined by Holy Spirit nudging or tugging within your soul), you may very well have such the stronghold. If so, there’s no need to panic.  Simply commit to the above process of self-deliverance and kick this “critter” out of your life, and be done with it.  Once freed, do your best to repair the damage to those you’ve alienated and wounded, by more deeply embracing the Crucified Life; daily dying to sell

A prayer for your spouse and the other woman/men, in God’s own words and language

Note: This prayer is derived from Scripture, but you can take it’s content and use a modern dialogue.

Matthew 8:2
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Matthew 9:18
While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

Matthew 15:25
Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
Matthew 20:20
Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

Mark 5:6
But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
Matthew 15:9
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

John 4:23
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

PRAY audibly, bring your care to our heavenly Father
My Father, my spouse has been unfaithful to me and to you. S/he has gone astray, and his/her heart has declined to a strange woman/men’s ways. She/he has seduced my spouse and s/he defiled him/herself with her/him

Tell it as it is written You see it as lewdness and an abomination.

This strange woman/men’s house is the way to hell.

ASK GOD’S INTERVENTION FOR:

Your spouse
Deliver him/her from her/his deceptive, vain, flattering words. 

Father, loose the cords of his sins. Destroy the yoke with Your anointing. 

I pray You will not give him/her up to a reprobate mind. Save him/her from the spirit of whoredoms which has caused him to err. Enlighten my spouse’s understanding. Let his/her heart see. 

And may s/he put away this evil and not destroy his/her soul. 

Forbid it Lord that this sin bring about severe consequences. I know that You discipline Your children because You love us. Have compassion on us, Abba Father. May Your kindness and goodness lead my husband to repent.

The other woman/men

Cause this woman/men to cease from playing the harlot. You said that adultery is evil and it is a great sin. You have taught us that our bodies are Your temple and anyone that defiles this temple, You will destroy. Adulterers shall not inherit the kingdom of God suffering the vengeance of eternal fire in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Put a godly fear in her, put love for her/his own soul. I pray for a godly repentance.

Your spouse and the other woman/men

Genesis 20:3

But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife

2 Samuel 12:7
And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man…

Father put Your fear in each, as You did with King Abimelech, when he found out the woman he had taken was Abraham’s wife. Put the right person(s) in each one’s path to reprove this work of darkness, and may each receive godly counsel. Send to each one a Nathan, the prophet who confronted King David when he had taken another man’s wife

You and your husband/wife

As for me, Lord, You said my husband/wife is sanctified by a godly wife/husband.

 I pray s/he will be encouraged by my testimony. May s/he see and appreciate the value of a virtuous woman that fears the Lord. Through Your eyes, may s/he see in me a meek, and quiet spirit which is in Your sight of great price. 

May s/he have wise discernment, Lord. Save him/her from the deceitfulness of a well-favored harlot. I pray s/he will return to me and to You and be made clean of this filthiness. I desire that my husband/wife be happy and rejoice with the woman/men he married. Let my love fill him/her with delight and make him/her happy. May s/he be satisfied with his/her own well. You made us to be one flesh. He ought to give honor unto me and be kind and of good will. May You pour Your love in him by Your Holy spirit to love me as Christ loves the church and as loving himself. I pray s/he will be faithful and true to me.

God will give you the grace to forgive
Father, I thank You that adultery is a forgivable sin. Your unfailing love covers the multitude of sins. You will never turn away a broken and contrite spirit and the one that comes to You in repentance asking Your forgiveness. You gave us examples: You forgave Rehab, David, and the woman caught in adultery, just as You forgave the prodigal son. You will also remove the guilt and shame and will never remember it anymore.

Don’t cast stones Father, I know that I also sin, and I don’t want to be guilty of pride, bitterness, hate, and self- righteousness; nor do I want to cast stones and not forgive. I pray you will forgive us of our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness with the blood of Your Son, the Lord Jesus. As heirs together of Your kingdom, we will glorify You in our body, and in our spirit, which are Yours.

Know that you have prayed God’s will
I know I have prayed according to Your Word, and I know You have heard me. I know it is Your will to save my husband /wife that s/he not perish, but to bring fruit of repentance. It is Your will to save our marriage. Father if You be for us, who can be against us! Your Word which I have prayed will not return unto You void; it will accomplish Your will on earth and in our lives, as it is in heaven.

I will wait upon You patiently, Lord. I trust in Your mercy. You are faithful to grant my petition. You will do it. Thank You for Your unfailing love that lives in me and I can be kind, not behave inappropriately, not be selfish, and not be ill-tempered. I do not wish evil on anyone but do not rejoice in evil doings. I rejoice in Your truth; and I can endure my cross, for You will not give me more than I can bear. I will endure my cross also for my husband/wife’s sake. Enduring my cross will bring results! I will believe and trust You in everything, and my hope in You does not make me ashamed. Thank You for the love, joy, and peace I have because Your Spirit lives in me.

IN JESUS NAME, AMEN
