If you ever happen to find yourself in lucid spiritual warfare against the enemy, keep this important tip in mind:
The enemy will try to deceive all the way up to the point where you're about casting it out.
To illustrate, I just awoke from an encounter where I was in my bedroom (current house) and, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I was tracking down a certain demon spirit that was in hiding. My bedroom was very dark (the enemy loves to hide in the dark) and I had awoke about 4-6 separate times, throughout; each time afterward, willing myself back to sleep while asking the Lord to strengthen me.
Eventually, I caught and grabbed this pitch-black evil spirit and began to bash it against the floor.
(in dream encounters, I've keenly noticed that you need to beat down most evil spirits to the point where they'll dematerialize and flee. Rabbi Schneider testifies of this, also, in his published book about self-deliverance).
However, in the process of this...its form morphed into one of my dogs.
It was trying to fool me into thinking that I was accidentally hurting one of my beloved pets -- hoping that I would hesitate long enough for it to recover.
I didn't fall for it!
Curiously enough though, after I beat the entity against the floor one last time, its form morphed again into the likeness of a small, brownish rat. The "corpse" of this rat was laid up against my bedroom door (leading outside) with a blood pile oozing out from beneath it.
Even odder, the corpse then, somehow, dragged/faded itself underneath my door to the outside...vanishing completely.
