These type of affliction stem from people’s actions. The Main Cause of Affliction can not be consequential.

It’s true that people still suffer from the consequences of their actions but this is not the main cause of Affliction.

The Main Cause of Affliction;


It sounds scary, but this is our main subject. Causes of Affliction is ninety percent demonic.


Sometimes we go through difficulty or hardship because we are connected to certain people or group. Causes of Affliction can also be collective.

What Does Being Afflicted Mean

Being afflicted mean to live in a state of pain, missery, grief.

The Main Cause of Affliction; Who are the afflicted

Anybody can be afflicted. it can be a person who is mentally or physically unfit, or has been grievously affected by disease, pain, grief. it can be of any gender; man or woman, it can be of any age, race. The rich can be afflicted, the poor can be afflicted.

90% of all sicknesses or affliction in the world is caused by the devils, it is demonic, never natural and the defeat of many, the demise of many is the ignorant of this fact.

Main Cause of Affliction

There are two main causes of Affliction; Spiritual causes and Natural causes or Physical causes. Natural causes can be as a result of natural disasters, natural condition, situation beyond human control

Spiritual Causes of Affliction

90% of all causes of affliction in the world is by the devil, it is demonic, never natural and the defeat of many, the demise of many is the ignorant of this fact.

Most of the sickness is being orchestrated in the realm of the spirit by demons, sometimes through human agents. This kind of sickness resist medication, some pose themselves as incurable.

 Most protracted illnesses, prolonged sicknesses are demonic, and what you simply need is prayer or somebody with a higher spiritual authority to cast out the demon or spirit of infirmity, and the sickness will vanish.

We humans are the one to cast out demons, but it depends on the spiritual authority involve, this is why every believer needs to be spiritually strong.

 Some people will need fasting and prayer to cast out a demon, but some will need just a word. It depends on how you are strong spiritually.

Causes of Great Affliction

For the first time, the disciples of Jesus could not cast out a demon and they asked Jesus why? Jesus told them, this type does not go, but with prayer and fasting. Demons operate in different hirarchies.

This does not mean they are powerful, no, they are not. It all depends on your level of faith which is determined by your level of knowledge in the word of God. if your faith level is low, any demon can trick. The only weapon they have is deception.

Demons Only Capitalized On Human Ignorance

Satan has no power at all, they simply capitalized on human ignorance, meaning, they use your power against you.

This is exactly what happened in the garden of Eden. Adam was the God of the earth before his fall. He had all the power over Satan as it were, but Satan collected everything through deceit.

Thank God Jesus came and collected all the power from Satan, restored man back to his original state. It’s only by ignorance that people still accept affliction from demons.

St. Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
St. Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
St. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
St. John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

A demon can only overcome you in an area when you do not know God enough. Anybody can only deceive you on what you do not know. People are called professors because they have some depth in that area of profession.

Humanly it is hard to deceive professors when it has to do with knowledge on that proffesion. You have to be aware of this one thing; the power of every believer is in the knowledge of God which is gotten in the word of God.

The word of God is the power of God. The same word of God is also the wisdom of God. You need to understand who the word of God is.

The word of God is God himself. As you sit with the word, you are sitting with, fellowshipping with the almighty God himself. This is how we receive power from God.

Specifically, this is what we use to overcome spiritual battles. God introduce fasting to help our faith, where it is low.

If you know God enough, you can overcome any hirarchy of demon. This is why it’s important that you build up your spirit with the revealed knowledge of the word of God daily and consistently.

This simply mean you can add fasting when your spiritual muscle cannot is not strong enough to cast out a demon.

You need to become a son that is matured with built up muscles, feeling strength and courage, moving about without fear of anything, knowing so well that he is ready to face anything that pops up. This is how believers should live Spiritually.

Identifying causes of affliction is the fast route to freedom for the troubled soul.

Demons are not the same, some are bigger than some, but there is none the word of God cannot throw down, cast out nor destroy, it all depends on your level of the knowledge of the word of God.

You need to know that Satan and all his demons were created by the word of God. And only the word of God can destroy them. You can only use the power of the word to dislodged them anywhere, anytime.

God Does Not Afflict

This is why knowledge of the word is important. God does not afflict, neither does he cause any affliction. God does not run the earth for man, God had finished creation and handed the earth to man.

You determine what happens using the knowledge of the word. This is why you must be committed to building your knowledge base in the word of God.

After God handed over the earth to man, God gave man a manual to use and run the earth. God never gave any demon any authority to run the earth.

If you allow demons to run the earth for you, you gave them the mandate, not God. The whole earth operates on one covenant; SEED TIME AND HARVEST. Whatever you use your mouth to say, that is what you will have.

Most of the results we get is what we demanded, either by our actions or word of mouth.

But when the result showed up, we completely forgot when we sowed the seed. This is simple; if you want to pass exam with first class, be commited to your studies, but many will sleep wake up and start speaking in tongues to cover up for the studiesthey supposed to have done.

There are no two ways to freedom, only one; the manual is the book of the knowledge of the word of God

Many have even accused God of trying to teach them a lesson or using sickness to try their faith, just as it happened to job. God never tried JOB, Satan did.

God has never and will never afflict anyone with sickness, at least, not after Jesus died and resurrected.

After the death of Jesus, all of God’s wrath on sin has been suspended till judgment day. Every form of torment, affliction, and infliction of any form is caused by Satan.

It’s not as if Satan has the power to even afflict any soul after the death and resurrection of Jesus; but the ignorance of men has led to the devil’s capitalization.

Psalms 82:5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
Psalms 82:7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

In the above scriptures, God never kill them, ignorance destroyed them because of lack of knowledge.

This is why many servants are riding on horses and kings are rather the ones going on foot; IGNORANT, IT IS A TERRIBLE DISEASE.

God is all powerful and wants you live sickness free, or if sick, be healed instantly.

The two kingdoms of the world

There are two kingdoms in this world. The kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light. The kingdom of light is ruled by God almighty, and the kingdom of darkness is ruled by Satan.

The two kingdoms are directly opposite to each other. The two kingdoms has rules or constitution on which they operate. Every rule in the constitution of the kingdom of darkness is opposing what is on the constitution of the kingdom of light.

The foundation of the constitution of the kingdom of darkness is based on lies, deceit, faulting whatever the kingdom of light says. While the kingdom of light is based on truth, the kingdom of darkness is based on lies or falsehood.

 The bible says Satan is the father of lies, lies is his natural language.You need to understand this basic truth to know why some things you do not understand happens to you. You do not expect Satan to start attacking cult members.

Those are not his enemy, they are rather those who patronize him, instead he will do everything to make them comfortable, and do everything to discomfort you, so that those who patronize the devil will feel that is the camp to belong.

Every believer needs to be aware they have a common enemy which is Satan. This is the more reason believers should fortify, arm themselves with the knowledge of the truth which is the fear of the devil.

Most causes of affliction by the devil is so deceptive that it can only take someone with the good knoledge of the word to identify the root cause.

The truth, which is the word of God you know and understand is the weapon of defense and victory you need. This weapon is the power of God, and the power you need.

Every demon knows how much of the word you know, why not, they are spirits, and faith is a spirit too. Spirits are not hidden from spirits like that.

This is why Satan cannot come near some people with sickness. There are those with such spiritual authority that no demon can near them, mere siting those people from afar, they will escape for their lives.

But where did those people get such authority from? From the same word of truth that you are being entreated with every day.

It is never everybody that Satan can afflict, there are those who are far above every demons, principalities.

Causes of Affliction: How Satan afflict

Asside from the word of God, it would not be humanly possible to know how satan afflicts

Satan does not have any power of his own to afflict any human being, those in his camp included. SATAN DOES NOT HAVE ANY POWER. If Satan has any power of his own, by now he would have finish slaughtering half of the believers in the world.

Believers round the world are a serious threat to the devil on a daily bases; with prayers, deliverance, preaching, telling people the truth, evangelism.

Believers are destroying the kingdom of darkness everywhere by the preaching of the word of truth, yet the devil cannot do anything to defend himself.

Believers are satan’s direct enemies on earth, believers are causing so much affliction to Satan every second.

The Earth Is The Lord’s

They are always praying, binding, sending fire, destroying his kingdoms. Christians are preaching every day to convert most of his members to Christ.

Yet he cannot do them anything, except those believers who does not know and understand the word of God and those who are not doing the word.

It was deceit he used with Adam and Eve, he knew he does not have an atom of power or authority over them. Satan knew the only thing he could do was to deceive, put fear in them and make them disobey God.

Our ignorance of the word of God and lack of doing the word is the loophole that Satancapitalizes on to bring affliction.

You need to be aware that Satan’s weapon of affliction is deceit, lies. And the only reason he deceives is to put fear in you. It is not Satan that afflict directly, it is fear.

Fear Has Torment

Fear will always be present where there’s no faith. Once faith is absent, fear will quickly occupy the space. This is why you must be rich in the knowledge of the word of God to build your faith.

Fear is a spirit, just like faith is a spirit, but they are two opposites. Faith is used by God, fear is what Satan uses.

People with weak spirit will always fear, but those that have built up their spirit with the revealed knowledge of the word of God always have faith and courage to face any situation. Satan is afraid of the later because they always quash him.

You need to open the bible and study everything that the word of God says about fear.

The Foundation That Initiate The End of Affliction

Once you initiate a relationship with the almighty God, that is the beginning of the end to all forms of affliction in your life.

In case you are not born of God yet, you cannot reject Jesus. You were created by Jesus for Jesus. God created you for himself and wants to live in you today.
