1. Study further the transference of a good spirit: The prophet Elisha asked for the “mantle” of Elijah to fall upon him at the time of Elijah’s death. This “mantle” symbolized the spirit of God which was upon Elijah. Elisha asked for a “double portion” of the good spirit which rested on Elijah. Read the story in II Kings 2.

4. Do you feel you have been affected by the transference of an evil spirit? Who do you believe influenced your spirit? What were the results of this negative influence? If you have been affected by the transference of an evil spirit and to defend against being affected by such, follow the counter strategies given in this chapter:
• Control your own spirit.
• Guard your tongue.
• Guard your affections.
• Carefully select your associates.
• Guard your physical senses.
• Use caution in “the laying on of hands.”
5. There is a special gift of the Holy Spirit called “discerning of spirits.” It enables believers to recognize whether a spirit is good or evil.


1. And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone. (Numbers 11:17)
2. To transfer means to convey from one person to another. The word “spirit” as used in this lesson refers to the character, attitude, or motive behind an action. A person can be under the influence of evil or good and transfer his spirit to others on a personal or group basis.
3. The story of Moses and the seventy elders in Numbers 11:16-17.
4. The story of the ten spies in Numbers 13.
• Control your own spirit.
• Guard your tongue.
• Guard your affections.
• Carefully select your associates.
• Guard your physical senses.
• Use caution in “the laying on of hands.”
