Transference of Spirits


A special kind of transference of spirits is possible for good or evil by the laying on of hands.  Under certain conditions hands laid on others can release incredible spiritual power.  We should make sure something good is in our hands and hearts before laying hands on others.

In scripture five reasons are spelled out for this practice of laying on of hands.

First:  To impart healing to the sick (Mark 16:17,18).

Second:  We receive power to administer the baptism of the Holy Spirit to others.

Third:  To impart spiritual gifts (Romans 1:11).  The Greek is to take something you have and impart it to others.  `Established’ means to be strengthened in faith and spiritual experience.  Paul desired that they have spiritual gifts.  Had he been like many today he would have been contented to dazzle them with his own spiritual abilities and have done all the ministry himself.

Verse 12 says he wanted to be comforted together with them by the mutual faith.  By receiving the gifts of the spirit they would be able to minister to him and by mutual faith they would edify each other.

God’s plan for the church includes the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit received through the laying on of hands.  Paul exhorted Timothy not to neglect these gifts (I Timothy 4:14).

In II Timothy 1:6 Paul reminds Timothy to stir up the gift of God within himself because of hands laid on him.  After laying hands on him he calls Timothy an apostle of Jesus Christ.  He also calls him an apostle of Christ in I Thessalonians 2:6.

Fourth:  To send out missionaries or apostles to represent the local church (Acts 13:1-4).  Prophets and teachers laid hands on Barnabus and Saul.  After this happened, Saul (great one) became Paul (little one).  He is no longer “a certain disciple,” but an apostle of Jesus Christ.

With apostolic power they went down to Iconium to preach, speaking boldly in the Lord and signs and wonders were done by their hands (Acts 14:3).  The people were so astonished at the miracles that they brought out their idols, gold and silver, put them before them and acclaimed them to be God.  In verse 14 they are called apostles, not merely certain disciples as in the previous chapter.  Of course they rejected being called God.

There was a change that came upon Paul after the laying on of hands.  Also in the Old Testament when King Saul came to where all the prophets were gathered, a different spirit came on him and he was a new man.  Amazing spiritual powers are released and transferred through the laying on of hands.

Spiritual powers can also transfer through association.  Being near someone good or evil, can affect and permeate your entire personality, changing attitudes and actions.  “She is just like her mother”  or “like father, like son.”   We become like those with whom we associate.

If children do not have godly men and women for parents and role models, barring a miraculous intervention of God in their lives, they will not become godly adults.  So many modern parents set a terrible example and rear their children permissively to become Brat and Bratella.

Stupid and carnal parents see nothing wrong with their offspring becoming spendthrifts, serving rock and roll idols, going to concerts, becoming involved in sex orgies, and addicted to drugs and alcohol which wreck both bodies and minds.  Make no mistake, God holds such people strictly responsible for the way their children have grown up.

Our fathers have sinned and are not, and we have borne their iniquities.  (Lamentations 5:7)

Children DO bear the iniquities of their ancestors.  Evil spirits are transferred from parents to children.  The children are sanctified by the godly life of the parents, especially those who seek to be delivered and bring help to their household.  This will focus the power of the Lord on the home to assist in bringing children to salvation.

Never forget that children are like sponges picking up the bad habits, hatreds, prejudices, fears and neuroses from their parents.  Spiritual curses or blessings can also be passed down or transferred from generation to generation.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to graven images nor serve them for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generations of them that hate me. (Exodus 20:5,6)

Serving other gods leads to lives wasted and absorbed in material things, denying or forgetting the spiritual.  This brings the curse of God upon children to the third and fourth generation (120 to 160 years).

A godly preacher named Jonathan Edwards knelt with his wife Sarah by their bed on their wedding day and committed their future ministry, their children and the unborn generations to God.  His family produced 1400 children:  13 were college presidents; 65 were university professors; over 100 were lawyers; several were deans of law schools; 3 judges; 56 physicians; 80 holders of public offices and over 100 went into the mission fields.

God shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to the fathers. (Malachi 4:6)

Another study in 1875 (about the same time as Jonathan Edwards) was made of the Jukes family.  They lived together without being married and disdained all morals.  They had no ethics and broke every tradition, living totally godless lives for the material and physical pleasures of the moment.  They had no need for Jesus Christ.  Through their generations the Jukes family was a cesspool of crime, immorality, poverty and disease.

That family cost New York $1,500,000 in welfare payments alone and did not produce a single decent person. The Edwards family committal to the Lord was blessed while everything the Jukes family touched was cursed.  This is why the Bible says raise your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Train up a child in the way he should go when he is old he will not depart from it.  (Proverb 22:6)

What fellowship has light with darkness.  What fellowship has Christ with Belial?  Come out from amongst them and be ye separate saith the Lord and I will receive you and I will be a Father unto you.  (I Corinthians 15:33)

Being not deceived, evil communications corrupt good manners.  You run around with them and have communication with them it will corrupt your good manners.  Let us consider one another, to provoke unto love and to good works.  (Hebrews 10:24,25)

Five: The fifth function of the laying on of hands is to set aside deacons.  The word deacon is servant and he is set aside to take over duties which will relieve the preacher.  They needed men to take care of the tables.  Seven full of the Holy Ghost were appointed, including Stephen and Philip.  Hands were laid on them to set them apart for this job (Acts 6:1-6).

Elders are men who are spiritual overseers.   They pray for the sick, help pastors to oversee the flock, and carry out the ministry.  Elders must also have the same vision, goals and spirit as the head shepherd.

Division, strife and confusion is produced today because men under the pastor have come in from the outside.  They are often made elders but lack the same vision, attitudes and dedication to the ministry as the pastor.  The spirit of the leader must be upon the other pastors and the elders.  Long ago Moses faced this problem:

I am not able to bear all this burden alone because it is too heavy for me and if thou deal thus with me kill me I pray thee; out of hand if I have found favor in thy sight and let me not see my wretchedness.

And the Lord said unto Moses gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people.  And I will come down and talk with thee there and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee and I will put it upon them.

In Deuteronomy 34 the spirit of Moses came on Joshua to lead as he laid hands on Joshua.

And they shall bear the burden of the people with thee that thou bear it not thyself alone.

It is necessary for a transference of a man’s spirit to others in order to produce the necessary unity in a work.  Can two walk together unless they be agreed?  (Amos 3:3)
