Incubus and Succubus
Keywords: Incubi, Succubi, Incubus, Succubus


I have talked to many women about their experiences with devils and know a few things about them from personal experience (my experiences started when I was about 12). Some years ago, I was listening to Christian radio and heard tell of the Incubus a devil that molests women while they are sleeping. The speaker's comments immediately struck a cord in me because I had been there. As I look back, I remember a movie entitled, "The Entity" (which I watched in my unregenerate days) which was supposedly based on a true story where a woman was continually molested by a devil, an Incubus...I've also recently seen a business by the name of Incubus, strange... For men, the devil is called Succubus. Even King James VI & I wrote about the Incubus in his treatise, Daemonologie.

Many people use the word, "demon" to describe Satan's minions, but that word is not found in the Bible (Authorized King James 1611 is the Bible). The word is "devil". When we do unclean things or even think unclean thoughts, we open the door for Satan to get an advantage over us. I have received e-mails from a number of people who are concerned with the state of lustful wickedness that their mind has gone to. Even teensy-tiny bits of unclean wicked things are unacceptable--pornography, tv, movies, secular (or any kind of romance) books, lasciviousness, filthy communications, filthy friends, etc. all break the protective hedge of a Christian. Yes, I said Christian--myself included. Jesus said "the flesh is WEAK".

Matthew14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the FLESH is weak.

I don't care how far along you are in your walk with Jesus, you've got flesh and it is weak. You've got to stay on top of it and mortify it CONTINUALLY.

Romans 8:13 For IF YE LIVE AFTER THE FLESH, YE SHALL DIE: but if ye through the Spirit do MORTIFY the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the FLESH.

Galatians 5:17 For THE FLESH LUSTETH against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

We Christians are in a spiritual battle. We'll either walk after the Spirit of God or we'll walk after our corrupted flesh. If you do the latter, Satan will have his way with you. At first it will seem pleasant, but then you will find that you are addicted to lust and you'll do stranger and stranger things. You will feel that the LORD God is very far away from you. Your heart will grow hard against Him and you will be dissatisfied and depressed. Don't turn your back on the Lord. Rebuke every evil thought and stay away from those things that cause you to offend. I try to be like Paul and "keep under my body and bring it into subjection lest that by any means when I have preached to others I myself should be a castaway."

Devilish activity has increased over time and now people, on a larger and larger scale, are seeking to cultivate their ability to interact with unclean spirits. The Bible calls it witchcraft, consulting with familiar spirits, necromancy, etc. People's favorite rock "stars" and movie "stars" are glorified witches and wizards casting spells on people with their "art". The world has tons of books and even schools where a person can study how to communicate with devils. Sorcery is on college campuses, public schools and even in so-called "Christian" churches (actually churches of Satan). For those who've never experienced anything like this, for you to say it is imagination is ignorant. Did Jesus cast out devils or did He not? Did Jesus call Peter "Satan" or did He not? Satan influenced Peter--

Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

The Devil influenced King David--

I Chronicles 21:1, 8 And Satan stood up...and provoked David... And David said unto God, I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing...

The Devil is real, hell is real, seducing unclean spirits are real--wake up! If you are a doubting Christian or a non-Christian don't try to be no warrior, 'cause you may end up like the sons Sceva--

Acts 19:13-16 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.

And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

If you lack wisdom, don't get involved.

A final note on protecting our minds, Christian friend. The Bible says that we are to cast down all IMAGINATIONS. Think about it--tv is vain imagination. The wicked shows are just ACTORS who are PRETENDING. Tv is imagination. The people who write them are into unmentionable perversion and sorcery. I've read that when you are watching tv, your brain operates slower than when you are sleeping! Satan creeps right on in--WITH YOUR PERMISSION. Watching tv can channel spirits right into you. Lust-ridden people who've let their minds go all over the place have told me that they've lost control over themselves and that they are actually afraid. Lust will take you to places you never would have considered. The following article on Incubus and Succubus is consistent with what I know about lustful devils and I believe it may be useful to someone. It came from


INCUBUS - A spirit or demon thought in medieval times to lie on sleeping persons, especially women, with whom it sought sexual intercourse.

SUCCUBUS - In folklore, a female demon thought to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men.

Above definitions came from Webster's Dictionary.

INCUBI - Demonic sexual attacks on females; may be caused by sexual sins, witchcraft spells, curses of lust, inherited curses, can attack children

SUCCUBI - demonic sexual attacks on males, may be caused by the same as Incubi above

Forget medieval times and folklore, these demons are for real! The demons have sex with both men and women as the person sleeps, AND YOU KNOW IT. It's not a dream, and it is not your imagination.

If you have encountered this situation, DELIVERANCE and Spiritual Warfare can stop it.

A woman called us once and told us about these demons, and that she was afraid to go to sleep because of it...

Another woman wrote to us and told us that a demons were having sex with her as she slept. Her husband, a Pastor, said it was just her "imagination". DEMONS ARE FOR REAL! She did DELIVERANCE and Spiritual Warfare, and we got an email the very next day saying,

"Praise the Lord. What a wonderful night's sleep I had!!! No demons attacking my body. NONE!!!" What a Blessing to us to receive positive reports ONCE a person DOES DELIVERANCE.

On March 18, 1997 a female Evangelist wrote to us and said,

"I know there are countless women that this (demons sexually abusing them) is happening to, because every Christian woman I have spoken to about it (sex demons), 9 out of 10 it has happened to." NINE out of TEN!!








The following excerpts are from Erica Joseph of Breakthrough Missions, 4514 N. 34th St., Tampa, Florida 33610 in a booklet titled "Sex with demons - Nightmares, Incubus and Succubus"

Sexual experiences with demonic spirits are very real even in this day and age. I have personally taken both men and women through DELIVERANCE, that have experienced this and some became bound by the spirits of Incubus and Succubus. I have personally taken both men and women through DELIVERANCE, where the witch or warlock has actually, through the use of astral travel, seduced them, having sexual relations with them as they slept, with them thinking it was only a dream. This having been done through the utilization of "Familiar" spirits.

In every DELIVERANCE situation of this nature the one thing that has been required is total and complete honesty from the person seeking the DELIVERANCE. I have taken some individuals through DELIVERANCE and the Holy Ghost has caused those spirits to manifest (reveal themselves). Some individuals have enjoyed the sexual experience with those demons, thus DELIVERANCE was not effective.

In some instances, I have found that those spirits have entered in through masturbation and fantasy lust. If the individuals renounce the fantasy lust and stopped masturbating, they were DELIVERED.   I have taken several individuals through DELIVERANCE from those demons and I've found that people have been violated (raped) by spirits, not actually wanting to believe it or not understanding what happened to them until DELIVERANCE revealed it. But they know that they had experienced something painful and undesirable.

I have taken individuals through DELIVERANCE, that have felt the bed moving, felt their bodies responding uncontrollably, yet their rational, logical mind could not comprehend it. So they wrote it off as a dream. These demonic spirits that function in this sexually perverse way must be renounced and cast OUT, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please write to us, get in touch with us if you believe that we might be of help or assistance to you with DELIVERANCE in this area. I hope that this little booklet will give you more knowledge, in this area of DELIVERANCE, so that you might be of help to someone else.

Essentially, the incubus is a lewd demon which seeks sexual intercourse with women. It is also termed follet (French), alp (German), duende (Spanish) and folletto (Italian). The corresponding demon who appears to men is the succubus. When associated with one particular witch or sorcerer, both incubus and succubus are known as magistellus, or "familiar". Inasmuch as the nightmare dream is sexual in latent content, incubus is often used interchangeably with The Mare Demon; in fact, the Latin word for nightmare is incubo (to lie upon). The incubus can assume either a male or a female shape. Sometimes he appears as a full-grown man. Sometimes as a satyr or in the form of a demon, and if it is a woman who has been received as a witch, the incubus generally assumes the form of an animal.

Succubus is a demon in female form, specialized in seducing men. Although feminine in meaning, in form this medieval Latin word, succubus, is masculine (because demons were supposedly sexless) the feminine form succuba (strumpet) is occasionally found.

If you have, or are having dreams or nightmares of a sexual nature that you know are as real as life, dreams where you cannot exactly distinguish the real from the unreal, please seek DELIVERANCE. Don't allow satan and his demonic hosts to degrade your body which is the Temple of God.


If you are a Christian having trouble with this sort of thing, examine your life to see where you are opening a way for devils to come in. It may be tv (for many it is) or novels or impure thoughts/fantasies, porno, masturbation, etc. Once you identify it, repent of the behaviour and ask the Lord to fill up the time spent there with His good will. Read your Bible, go to every church service, be in fellowship with your brothers and sisters in Christ. Take on a ministry and serve the Lord instead of serving yourself. Jesus said that we have work to do and it certainly ain't sittin' around watching tv.

If you are attacked by devils while you are sleeping, ask the Lord Jesus to help you even as you sleep. Resist what is happening and get up (I know that it is very hard to wake up sometimes). When you get up, command the devils to leave in the name of Jesus. Get down on your knees and talk to the Lord Jesus. Bless His holy name and ask His protection on you that your sleep may be sweet.

Jesus Christ is the Lord and there is no need to be afraid of evil. We overcome it by doing good. When we watch Satan's tv and get involved with his system (gossip, foolish jesting, etc.), we are outside our hedge of protection. Repent of your sin and get rid of the inconvenient things that cause you to stumble.

updated I have just visited yor site and am very impressed by all the articels, a real blessing. Please forgive my spelling because i am from Holland and my english is not perfect :)

I haven't had the time to read it all yet but i did read your article on Incubus. I found it very intersting and must say that i can't find anything untrue in this article. However Incubus or Succubus does not manifest itself in agressive or destructive ways only. Well in the end you will pay the price of corse, but what i mean is, before i became a Christian and was saved by the Blood of Christ, i used to be an occult medium, channeling a spiritual guide. This guide also fullfilled my sexual desires, and never tried to hurt me in that way. It was a way of giving me what i whas longing for without having to share me with a real woman. This guide apeard in the kind of woman i wished for, mostly like a girl i had met and liked a lot physicly.

I know thrue my experiences from my old live that there are many more people lured into the web of lies that makes up satan's kingdom this way. Not unexpected, not in a dream, but visualy and physicly real in experience.

I am aware that maybe not many people know of this, because it is something not spoken of in the open easily due to the sensitive nature and the misunderstanding that comes along. People tend to get scared when you talk about these things. Please don't see this as a way to state that the article isn't correct, most manifestations do acure the way as it is stated. I am only trying to explain that there are other forms of manifestation also.

I pray that God will bless you in continuing this site and so reach out to people that are not saved yet, that they may find salvation thrue the Cross in repentance and acceptance of His forgiveness and Grace. Our mission is to spread the word of God and His plan of salvation, not to go out on a demon hunt. However man must be warned.

May God bless you abundabtly,

In His Love,

A fellow Christian from Holland.
