Territorial Spirits: What Are They?

We are each in a Spiritual war. There are demons, evil spirits, and unclean spirits constantly trying to corrupt us. This is why we need to put on the Whole Armor of God so that we can withstand the temptations of the enemy. But is that all we have to worry about? What about Spiritual Warfare above us? Are there spirits in the Heavenly Realms that are over different territories? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to fully understand the spiritual warfare between Territorial Spirits and us.

12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord.

Exodus 12:12

God has taken His place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” 5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. 6 I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; 7 nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.” 8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!

Psalms 82

Citizens of Heaven No Longer Under Territorial Spirits

19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In Him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.

Ephesians 2:19-22

22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, 23 and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

Hebrews 12:22–24


There is a Spiritual War for our souls going on right now. We don’t just have demons, evil spirits, unclean spirits, etc., surrounding us always. But, we also have Territorial Spirits that rule over the twelve regions of the earth. They have authority over those regions, which is one of the reasons God tells us we need to be born again so that our citizenship is in Heaven.

Because our citizenship is now in Heaven, those Territorial Spirits have no claim over us. We can overcome anything that comes in our way. Mountains are brought low before us, and seas are parted so that we may fulfill our call and live our lives for our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. Because of this, evil spirits, demons, unclean spirits, and all other beings cannot overcome us in this Spiritual War that we are fighting, for our soul belongs to God.
