The story in Joshua 10 reads:
Verse 10. "...so the Lord routed them before Israel…and struck them down as far as Azekah and Makkedah...." Verse 16," But these five kings had fled and hidden themselves in a cave at Makkedah...." Verse 24, "So it was, when they brought out those kings to Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said to the captains of the men of war who went with him, 'Come near, put your feet on the necks of these kings.' And they drew near and put their feet on their necks. Verse 25, "Then Joshua said to them, 'Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage, for thus the Lord will do to all your enemies against whom you fight.'"
You may be asking do these spirits still exist today? Spirits are never dying. They work for heaven or hell. They may be defeated but as with all spirits from hell they are lawless. They do what their father of lies whose name is Satan does, they kill, steal and destroy. We have power over these evil spirits, but we must use our authority given to us in Christ Jesus.
Praise God the Lord threw down large hailstones from heaven to slay these kings. We use the word of the Lord and the power Christ death and resurrection provided for us. Our help truly comes from the Lord. I have learned to look up as that is where my help comes from. I no longer look down and hang my head. Jehovah is the banner over me and He our refuge.
Tomorrow, I will share on the second of the 5 kings whose name is Hoham, king of Hebron, who represents the spirit of religion. Begin today to break the neck of your peace stealer. Refuse to worry and be in fear, but rather in all things and in all ways give thanks to Lord our God and King; because His love endures forever! He is the banner over us!
