In Christianity Territorial spirits is a term we use to identify demonic occupation of a specific geographic location based on the hierarchy system. In the whole Bible there are LEAST 25 demons mentioned and in each case the demon was given territorial authority (Colossians 1:16). It could be a region, a city or a nation. There used to be angels assigned to churches like Angel of church of Ephesus (Rev.2), so also does the devil assign his evil angels. The angels are given limits of where they can go and authority to govern those territories. Jude 1:6
The Christian concept of territorial spirits comes from passages such as Daniel 10; John 12:31; John 14:30; John 16:11; Mark 5:10; and Ephesians 6:12. Territorial spirits control the mind and culture of the people. Just look at the patterns in that area and you will know which it, in some territories men don’t prosper no matter how hard they work. Others you only survive there but you will always be sick. These spirits appear to focus on one area and did not desire to leave it.
Territorial spirits are spiritual and physical powers holding people in captivity in the territory where they reside. Territorial powers are stubborn powers that resides in the house, street where you are currently living. They are not there as you friend but enemy.
No matter the good thing you do to them, they will use it against you. Know that they can fight against you and sit on your case without your knowledge. That’s why some Christians are concentrating more on the enemy in their village. These territorial powers know you to some extent. It is better to ask God to show you the locations of those powers fighting you.
Territorial spirits can even use your neighbour, friend, landlord etc who can blow the wind of bad luck and stagnation from the environment where you are living against you. if you are not sensitive spiritually, you will end up sharing your life information to your enemies.
Daniel 10:13 and 20 talks about the Princes of Persia and Grecia whose aims were to stop the answers and blessings of the people in that territory. But thanks to God who sent warring angel to fight him (Prince of Persia) to submission.
Ephesians 6:12 exhorts believers to stand firm against our spiritual adversaries and to remain alert and ready for battle. There is no doubt that our struggle on Earth is mirrored in some way in the spiritual realm. So, a believer needs to be aware that there is a spiritual battle and to take it seriously (1 Peter 5:8). Always remember that Territorial powers are silent killers!
