What do people do to fool evil spirits?
every thing should be yellow! they hate yellow... so yellow shirt yellow pants and a banana
You need a little yellow everywhere!
"Evil" [unclean] spirits aren't "fooled" by humans. It's the other way around.
And unclean spirits do it in variety of ways. The spirit realm is invisible to the human eye... so sometimes it's a trick just to get some people to recognize the existence of "demons."
Jesus Christ cast out unclean spirits from people, seemingly, as often and commonly as you and I breathe. Some of the symptoms "possessed" people displayed are the same ones extant in folks, today -- deafness, eplilepsy, suicidal tendencies... all manner of sickness and disease.
Modern science and society has replaced "faith and trust in God"... and many of these "symptoms" are labled "mental diseases" that are treated with drugs [many of which subdue the human mind, rendering it even more susceptible to the ministrations of the unclean spirit(s) in them].
It's man who is fooled... not the unclean spirits among us. These are the same ones Jesus cast out when He walked the earth as a man. These demonic angels didn't die... they "went somewhere else" looking for a "host."
"When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation." (Matt.12:43-45)
These same "invisible" spirits have preyed upon all the generations of man since then. And they're still with us to this day... unseen, undetected and for the most part, unrecognized.
When it comes to unclean spirits... about the only thing most men can fool, regarding them, is himself.
There are thousands of religions in the world, with many, many gods from which to choose. Most people express faith in some kind of god or other. Here, too, is further deception among men who are unable to discern that most of the gods they worship are unclean spirits posing as "angels of light."
"...no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers [unclean spirits] also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (II Cor.11:14-15)
It's man who is easily fooled... not unclean spirits. They can see us... we can't see them. How do you fight an enemy you can't see?
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." (Eph.6:12)
The term, "fooling" seems to suggest "playfulness"... or a "harmless prank." But, the possession of the human spirit and tearing asunder of the body by these unseen unclean spirits is far from a game. Neither should they be regarded as "entertainment" among men, as Hollywood thus feeds upon unsuspecting folks today.
No man can "fool" an unclean spirit. But, if one were to ask how to "foil" an unclean spirit -- the answer is "the name of Jesus Christ."
"...Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority commandeth He even the unclean spirits, and they do obey Him?" (Mark 1:25-27)
Taking refuge in Jesus' name is the only "foil" against unclean spirits. Otherwise... it's best to avoid them altogether... not willingly entertaining them in your heart and mind... or giving them room within you to work their evil.
There is no "fooling" unclean spirits. It's not a game... and they aren't playing.
