Type of Spirits in the Bible

Type of Spirits in the Bible

Here we are describing briefly about 15 spirits which are mentioned in the Bible-

1) Spirit of God – In the opening verses of Genesis, we see the Spirit of God moving over the face of the water. Many people believe that this is who we refer to as the Holy Spirit.

2) Living Spirits – During the six days of creation, God breathed a spirit into the being which He formed. This being came to be called mankind.

3) Life-Giving Spirit – Besides God, this is the only spirit to be referred to as a life-giving spirit. We know Him as Jesus/Yeshua.

4) Ministering Spirits – Angels, demons, and humans can all fall into this category. Ministering spirits testify to human beings that Christ is the Son of God. We see angels and the prophets doing this all throughout scripture, but the demons do this as well.

5) Animal Spirits – This is the first and only place in the Bible that speaks of animals having a spirit.

6) Evil Spirits – This description is usually a reference to demons. We will cover this type of spirit more in depth later.

7) Fire Spirits – This is the first time in the Bible that angels are referred to as fire/flaming spirits. There are two very similar beliefs in fire spirits from other cultures. The Cherokee worshiped the creator Yahowah as the Elder Fires. They believe that he is three, yet they worship him as one. In Islamic belief, the Djinn are considered to be spirits of smokeless fire similar to evil angels in the Bible.

8) Familiar Spirits – These are the spirits that are consulted by witches and psychics.

9) Spirits of The Heavens – These are the chariots (red, black, white, pale green) that Zechariah sees during his vision.

10) Unclean Spirits – This term is usually used in reference to demons. We will look at this phrase more in depth later.

11) Seducing Spirits – These are the kind of spirits that are prophesied to mislead people not strongly grounded in their faith during the end of the age.

12) Lying Spirits – This type of spirit is mentioned when God asks for volunteers to mislead the false prophets.

13) Father of Spirits – The reason that God is referred to as the Father of Spirits is pretty self-explanatory.

14) Imprisoned Spirits – Many researchers believe that this is a reference to the angels that sinned in Genesis 6. While the Bible does not contain details to this event, they are described in depth in the book of Enoch.

15) Female Spirits – This is one of two places that mention female supernatural beings. The second one is highly controversial and will be addressed later.
