How To Overcome Strange Voices

What Is Voice?

Voice is the most integral part of a human being.The Oxford dictionary defines voice ''as the sound or sounds produced through the mouth by a person speaking or singing.'' Animals and human beings produce sound by using the lungs and vocal folds in the larynx.Our feelings and opinions can be heard through voice,it is the only means we use to express ourselves.

There are different types of voices. We can produce voiceless sounds without moving our vocal cords.Our bills,cheque books,ATM cards,correspondence letters all represent a voice.The HOLY BIBLE is the voice of GOD. Advert boards and road signs is a voice. We can identify a person by their voice. Parents can identify their children by their voice. An employer can use voice to scan the personality of an employee.

The power of voice cannot be underestimated.Voice can build and destroy a destiny.The devil also has a voice which he uses to steal, kill and destroy.

Types of Voices

There are different kinds of voices:

Voice of instruction

Voice of information

Voice of guidance

Voice of destruction

Voice of mission

Voice of death

Voice of restoration

Voice of confusion

People who hear strange voices are considered to be mentally sick or suffering from hallucination. This means they see and hear things which are not real because they are ill or taking some drugs.You and I know that this fact is not true in most cases.I personally do not believe that a person suffers from hallucination.I know some folks are mentally ill - I pray GOD will heal them speedily but we do sometimes hear whispers and voices. The patriarchs of old like Samuel,Moses,Abraham,and Elijah heard the voice of GOD directly.They heard the supreme voice of GOD giving them instructions to deliver.

Permit me to give you some instances I heard in the news:

  • One day, a certain Egyptian woman beat her son to death.When she was interviewed, she cried that it was not intentional because she heard a voice telling her to beat and kill her son and it was audible in her ears.That voice was the voice of destruction - a strange and evil one.
  • I read a comment on LINKEDIN about a boy who claimed he could not control himself because he kept hearing a voice telling him to take a gun and kill someone.Off course, this is not something we can wave away as untrue.There are truly evil strange voices that torment people.
  • A young man in Europe was charged for the murder of a Briton.He argued that he was haunted by voices telling him how to act

When I was an adolescent I sometimes hear a voice calling my name when nobody was around.During our family prayer meetings my father warned us never to answer such voices because an enemy in the spiritual or physical is trying to harm us.I never disbelieved because I had seen an instance where a person was called from the sleep and when he answered yes,he died.

It will take the grace of GOD for you and I to discern the good voice from the evil one.
I called the evil voices ''strange voices'' because they speak fear into your business.Friends with negative vocal cords can contaminate you.They bring promises that will never be fulfilled in order to make you stagnate.There are so many examples of these strange voices.

Overcoming Negative Voices

Knowledge of science is increasing and some - not all, do not believe in spiritual things.Ignorance my friend is a crime that is punishable by the law courts.Dr. Colbert said in one of his books that what you do not know can kill you.Knowing and doing is very important.

How to handle strange voices.

You must recognize that GOD is the supreme voice and it is unquestionable.We must always refrain from doing those things that displease HIM.When you ignore it,that means you are embracing the devil's voice.Now let me give you the strategies to use for overcoming strange voices.

  • Activate the name of Jesus Christ in your life.
  • Every voice has a mission.Use your voice to reverse any negative voices by praying against them violently.Silence any strange voice by using the supreme voice of GOD to silence them.The HOLY BIBLE is also the voice of GOD.
  • Ignore such voice and obey GOD.Although these evil voices can come so loud in your ears and mind and you feel like succumbing to it.Speak back to that voice loudly and say in the name of JESUS CHRIST I refuse you negative voice.Checkmate the voice.
  • When you hear such nasty voice give it a silent burial.
  • You can also report to anyone close around you what you are hearing.Do not keep it secret.Expose it.The devil likes us to keep some things secret so that he can isolate and torment us.When you air it out,then you have neutralized the power of the enemy.
  • Pray!Pray!Pray at all times.It will shield you from the arrows of the strange voices.

Thank you Rajan, Lela, Arun kanti, and Rasta1 for reading and commenting on my hub. More wisdom and strength for you all.

This is a great article, very insightful and useful. The voices we speak in our heads can become our own demons or they can lead us to peace, love and joy. It's up to us. Thank you for this wonderful article.




The inner voice being the connector to the all mighty, comes very silently and guides us in our life. One has to remain very calm and quiet to distinguish such call from other negative voices. Thanks for the thought provoking hub.

Discerning is very important in these situations. As you say, there are many voices.

CrisSp from Sky Is The Limit Adventure on April 05, 2013:

Ahh, the voice! That inner voice that is sometimes annoying or I am just stubborn--not listening or not wanting to listen. Intriguing, isn't it?

What a very interesting, inspirational and motivational hub. If we'd only learn how to carefully listen to our good inner voice and learn to ignore that whispering negative one.

Pray. Nothing beats that!

Great hub. Voted up and sharing. Thanks.

Very interesting read. I too have heard about bad spirits calling out to people and have been told to ignore these voices especially at night and in lone places.

The word of God is supreme and it is to this that we must always turn to.
