Orion has been identified as the first lieutenant of Lucifer and will enter with any compromise of the Word of God.  Under his control are many religious counterfeits such as false peace, piety, prince charming and a great host of intellectual and philosophical spirits.

He is a very proud, beautiful and intelligent spirit and puts up a good front for a Christian or a church congregation.  He will arrange false gifts to give a veneer of praise, worship and spirituality, but genuine gifts will be hindered and limited.  Beelzebub also works in the area of false gifts.

This demon delights in seizing ministers, particularly those in deliverance.  He often demands that they make compromises in return for fame, glory, money, etc.  For example, he may insist that ministry be confined to a specific area or only to certain people.

If forced out he will try to linger nearby, attempting to entangle victims.  Pride is used as a bait to undermine and infiltrate a ministry.  Orion is especially interested in subverting deliverance ministries.

Orion will marshal family and peer pressures; semantic, philosophical, theological and logical arguments against the true ministry.  These and other pressure tactics often lead to radical modifications or abandonment of the Biblical ministry of casting out evil spirits.

Orion enlists strong intellectual powers and mind control or witchcraft and philosophical powers to capture the mind hindering productivity in deliverance.  To overcome these could be the hardest decision you will ever make.

Orion does not block all deliverance, for he is too shrewd for that.  He allows ministry but sets limits.  Once the victim is ensnared, the demon edits lifestyles, suppresses ministry and makes workers complacent about deliverance.  This has happened repeatedly!

If necessary, he will effect a physical move for workers from fruitful ministry to one devoid of the Lord's blessing.  He will create and then supply all needs.  He injects just enough guidance to cause the victim to believe he has heard from the Lord.  Orion is quite capable of providing financial and physical blessings when it suits his ends.  The one area which exposes the false situation is the absence of true spiritual guidance.

Be very careful if contemplating a move, checking and rechecking all with the Word and the Lord.  Remember all of the past spiritual understandings which you know were bonafide.  God does not alert you to a work He is beginning, only to pull you out without giving further understanding of His direction.  Since God is not the author of confusion, be especially cautious if the move is created by pressure or lack.

In open confrontation with Orion, he will demand compromise in return for fame, honor and riches.  He may insist on limitation of the area of your ministry or that he be allowed to handpick those to whom you minister.  More commonly, this sly spirit will gradually phase out any real deliverance or effectiveness on your part.

Be suspicious if your personality has not undergone serious changes as a result of your own deliverances.  Beware if you still tend to be passive in your approach or have gone from an accelerated to a low speed life style.  Orion will pull into play every yet undelivered area in your life to accomplish his task.

Orion favors the fair-haired, orator type personalities possessing a great deal of charisma which appeals to other people.  Although he favors men, he also preys on women who are very interested in spiritual things and have strong Jezebellian powers.

Orion concentrates on leaders and prefers those with education and natural beauty or social awareness and exposure.  Controlling them will put him in a trusted position of authority over a group or body of believers.

When a dangerous demon gains entry, he influences through compromising of the Word; strong pride; and personal soul ties to a minister or acquaintance.  To free a person from this influence--break the ungodly soul ties to anyone bound by Orion; then deal with pride (leviathan); prince charming, Don Juan, charisma, attachment, witchcraft, psychic prayer and all spirits in charge of false gifts or false revelation.

Seek God and ferret out anything that would help to create an "I'm too-good-to-be-true" pastoral image.  Also watch out for selfishness, self-centeredness, spiritual superiority, masculine superiority, the orator, rebellion, false ministry and the false minister.

If forced out Orion always lingers nearby, attempting to reenter.  He uses pride to undermine and infiltrate a ministry (pride goeth before dstruction, Proverbs 16:18).  He can even enlist a type of perverted pride in the ability to be victorious over the enemy.

If you detect Orion seeking entry, first deal with pride and rebellion, then cut all ungodly soul ties.  Next, take a spiritual stand against:  all family and peer pressures; and all philosophical, semantic, theological and logical arguments against the deliverance ministry.

Warn the individual that Orion will continue his efforts.  Special precautioins should be taken never to compromise the Word, nor to allow pride to enter any area, especially concerning spiritual abilities or gifts.--Based on research by Sally Atkinson
