You automatically assume they're thinking like a human & thus have failures like a human. This isn't necessarily the case. When a spiritual being
like a demon has an agenda, the agenda in itself maybe to freak out a friend in order to make the issue far more complex. A person's inaction is just
as powerful as the action of someone attempting to dispel this entity & fail.
Why wouldn't they lay low?
Maybe the idea isn't to lay low. Maybe this demon is just a pawn for a much more powerful being & this is just the beginning of a horrific slide
Why wouldn't a demon try to go for someone really powerful instead of a girl who feels like she's unworthy?
More powerful as in what way? The weaker are easier prey since demons & other malevolent entities tend to find such prospects are attractive for
"consumption" & "take over". Someone that is very powerful has a stronger will, considerably more faith, intellect & wisdom (hopefully) to see
through the guise of false promises. A weaker willed person is more likely to believe the lies & give permission to a malevolent spirit to take
To what end?
Not everything in the spirit realm is so transparent & easily translatable to human logic (no matter how abstract). This is another point that you
assume you're going to comprehend the ways of beings that aren't necessarily native to our realm/dimension.
Why would it reveal itself to someone who says they have an unshakeable faith in Yahweh and yeshua?
The OP never once said that she had unshakeable faith (as far as all of my reading goes). You're putting words where they haven't been given.
Just because someone has great faith, doesn't mean they won't get attacked for having it. This is another reason why I said what I said in an
earlier post, which you seemed to dismiss so easily.
If you were to see a demon that would pretty much cement the fact that god exists right?
Not necessarily. There are certain faiths/religions that view demons as good & others as bad. Not all of them see demons as the polar opposite of a
holy God (or gods). If you're of the Judeo-Christian-based faiths (or religions), this is a definite sign but even then, many people question such
entities as truly existing if they've NEVER experienced the supernatural to the extent of dealing with malevolent beings that have every intent to
give humans the shaft.
Why would the devil send these beings in the first place?
Control. Power. Opposition. Subterfuge. So many reasons as to why, if you believe in the traditional Judeo-Christian accounts regarding Lucifer & his
fall from being a Cherub (highest rank of angels) of Heaven. Once you've gone down the path of chaos, it's far easier to sow those seeds instead of
admitting you really messed up & correct your own faults. This is seen in so many flaws with humanity alone. For a spirit to do so, it would appear
that sticking to your guns is just as easy as it is for us.
You seem to be searching for more answers than the op is in regards to this whole incident. Have you experienced paranormal events that made you
question your own faith or are you trying to find out more to build your own? That's why I stated everything as I did in my last post due to your
questioning. You seem to be searching pretty deep & are expecting people to solve your conundrums of faith. DON'T expect this to be a gentle walk in
the park where everyone answers your questions exactly as you want them to. All of us have different perspectives that may or may not be even close to
the truth. That is for you to decide through faith, logic & intuition.
May you be blessed in your search for truth & denying ignorance within yourself.
