The spirit of rejection is a spirit that seeks to infiltrate our lives and keep us captive in a constant sense of rejection. It is insidious and subtle in its manifestation, but its purpose is clear: to make us slaves to this character of rejection and destroy our identity in Christ. This spirit settles in with other spirits such as: the spirit of depression, self-sabotage, and suicide… etc., which work in harmony to distance us and destroy us. Unlike the character of rejection which can be worked on to overcome, the spirit of rejection must be cast out in the name of Jesus Christ.

However, certain principles must be followed to prevent it from returning with seven other spirits even more wicked, which could worsen our condition (Matthew 12:43-45). Let me tell you the story of Louise, who during her childhood, was constantly ostracized by her classmates because of her weight. Gradually, she began to withdraw into herself, isolating herself from others. She found refuge in excessive eating, manga, series, movies, in short, anything that could help her escape.

Louise maintained this character, thus opening the door to the spirit of rejection. This spirit will gradually suggest to her in her thoughts that it is normal for her to adopt and live with this character, because by embracing this character; she would feel comfortable in her own skin. And so, as she accepts this, the spirit of rejection will gradually cut her off from all her relationships through suggestions.

Then, it will open the door to other spirits such as depression, suicide, etc. Its aim is first to keep us in this character of rejection, then to open the door to other spirits that will destroy us and make us destroyers of other lives, including our families and colleagues. The spirit of rejection originates from the character of rejection, itself stemming from untreated emotional wounds in our hearts. That is why the Lord asks us to guard our hearts, for from them flow the springs of life (Proverbs 4:23).

The spirit of rejection is a spirit with multiple faces, capable of adapting to the different types of rejection characters that we manifest. It is like a Trojan horse, keeping us in this bad character by making us believe it is normal, while opening a back door to let in other evil spirits that will work to destroy us.

A significant example of the spirit of rejection is that of the Hikikomori in Japan. Hikikomori are primarily men who live in complete isolation, cut off from the world and others. They spend most of their time confined to their rooms for several months, or even years, only leaving to satisfy their essential bodily needs. Their social withdrawal is a reaction to an overwhelming feeling of rejection from society.

The spirit of rejection keeps the Hikikomori in this state of destructive isolation by fueling a vicious cycle of negative thoughts and limiting beliefs. These individuals feel deeply excluded from society, often due to social pressures, perceived failures, or difficulties in meeting the expectations imposed by their environment. These feelings of rejection and inability to integrate lead them to withdraw drastically.

The spirit of rejection nurtures thoughts such as “I am worthless,” “I am unloved,” or “I am a burden to others.” These negative thoughts reinforce their isolation by creating a downward spiral of self-confidence and self-esteem. The longer the Hikikomori remain isolated, the more these negative thoughts amplify, leading them to further cut themselves off from society.

This situation has a devastating impact not only on their personal lives but also on their families and society as a whole. The families of Hikikomori often feel deep distress and great despair in the face of their loved one’s isolation. They may feel responsible for the situation or powerless to find solutions. This dynamic can lead to family tensions, frustration, and a deterioration of family relationships.

At the societal level, Hikikomori represent a major challenge. Their social withdrawal and inability to actively participate in society have economic and social repercussions. They may become dependent on their families or the state to meet their needs, which can lead to financial and resource burdens.

Furthermore, their untapped potential and unused talents deprive society of valuable contributions. The spirit of rejection, if left untreated, can thus perpetuate a destructive cycle for Hikikomori and have repercussions on their families and society as a whole. The spirit of rejection has led to the emergence of movements such as MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), as well as social phenomena such as divorces or couples only on paper, as can be seen…
