Satan's #1 goal is to be like God.  Satan cannot create human beings, so he does the next best thing, and that is to possess them (through demonic spirits) and control them. It is very important that you rebuke demonic spirits that are causing or influencing you to sin. Below is a list demonic/unclean spirits (in alphabetical order) and the sins that are attached to those spirits.  For example, when you get a constant voice in your head telling you to do some kind of sin, that goes against God's word, then that is probably because you have a demonic spirit around you or attached to you that is tempting you to do that sin.  That demonic spirit has a name and can be identified in the list below. Once you have forgiven everyone (Step 1) and you have repented of your sins, (Step 2) it is time to rebuke the demons that are attached to you or influencing you to sin.  


Step 1 - Make a list of demonic spirits (from list below) that you feel you may have, that are attached to the sins you are doing.


Step 2 - When you are being tempted, you can say this quietly to yourself, but it is better to say this out loud . . . "I command you spirit of "lust" to go away in the Name of Jesus Christ."  or spirit of error, anxiety, addiction, etc. (from list below) If you forget what the spirit is called, then just call it an "unclean spirit."


Step 3 - Just keep rebuking each demonic/unclean spirit in your life as you get tempted to do the sin.  Do it before you sin, if possible.  If you end up being tempted and do a sin, then repent of that sin and rebuke that spirit.  Make sure and always have forgiveness for everyone.  Over time those unclean spirits will give up in that area of your life, but they will always try and find a weakness (open door from sinning) that they can attack. If you keep at it, you will become free of that sin. However, keep in mind that it can take one time to become free or you may have to struggle with the sin for a long time before you become free of it. Ultimately, it is God that decides when you will become free of the sin.
