Can a Christian be ‘possessed’ by demons? This is a question we hear quite frequently and some believe it to be ridiculous. Well, to be certain the answe is this:
If you’re a Christian, then you’re possessed (ownership) by GOD but you’re DEMONIZED by spirits. This is surely a technicality but one that confuses many Believers.
So, you as a Believer can attend church on a regular basis and still be demonized. This means there are areas in your personality where you are not in full control. So, you may still attend service but are afflicted by demons. This demon can still be inside a church, but the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ within you can force a demon out, to be true.
This is even true for sicknesses. You may have many members of the church who are sick with various illnesses and this is nothing but affliction of demonization. To be delivered from the sickness, you must be delivered from the demon.
Let’s make it perfectly clear on why you don’t hear of this subject in modern churches. It’s not that preachers don’t know about demons, this is the first subject Jesus Christ broaches whenever HE speaks of the works within the church. HE tells us to cast out demons. In HIS ministry HE taught the Disciples to do this FIRST. So, why don’t our churches do it? Why do they take a parishioner out of the church who acts out and has a demon? Why would a church not help you if you think your home is afflicted with demons? They were told by Jesus Christ that we are to go out and tell others but why don’t they? The answers are in the early days, the church thought they could improve upon Jesus’ techniques. First, the Roman Catholic Church decided to cast out demons you need a ‘specialist’ or what they call an exorcist. The same goes for your home. So, this ‘tradition’ began then and has been passed down through ALL churches to this day.
There are two things Satan does not want revealed!
1. That he and demons exist
2. That we have authority through Jesus Christ over the demons
Why? Because this reveals the clash between the two kingdoms; the kingdom of GOD and the kingdom of satan. And in revealing these secrets, it reveals the supremacy of GOD’S kingdom over satan’s.
So, it makes sense that satan would infiltrate the church and suppress these techniques to exorcise demons. So, to except the fact that people within the church can be demonized is also the understanding that satan works within the church and has been for thousands of years.
What was the first miracle Jesus Christ performed? HE cast out a demon!
Did you know that all miracles were previewed in the Old Testament of the Bible except one? What was that one? It was a deliverance/casting out demons! This is the distinctive mark of the progression between the two, the Old and New Testament. A decisive difference being the COMING OF THE LORD!
A familiar spirit-a spirit which follows a FAMILY! Did you know there are demons which will follow generations within a family? It’s true! Most people who are dealing with a member within their church which is being afflicted by financial/health or other issues is because one demon carries with it many others and these demons can afflict a church and oppress it to the point where several members of one family can be attacked. Even several members with their families too. This slows the process of the Church’s growth and development.
Demons are Persons
You must recognize that demons are persons. They are a spirit but they have a personality, this is the reason for so many types. Three objectives of a demon:
2. Keep you from knowing Jesus Christ
3. Keep you from serving Jesus Christ.
You have your fleshly issues and spiritual issues, and you must discern the two before you will know if there is an affliction or demonization. The remedies of the two are completely different. If you are in a state of depression and your dealing it as a state of flesh issue, then your trying to crucify a demon nor cast out the flesh. Are you dealing with the flesh or a demon?
Hebrew and Greek has the same name for spirit. But it also means wind. RUACH. Have you ever seen the wind? No, but you see the evidence of its effects. And the same for demons! Normally people can’t ‘see’ demons but due to their hierarchy some manifest themselves into this realm. How do we know their there? By what they do!
ENTICEMENT-We enter a store and see a gold pen on the floor. Someone must have dropped it. A voice tells you, “Pick it up”. Anything that comes to you in words comes from a person. Demons are ‘persons’.
HARRASSMENT-A business man in the office has a bad day. On the way home he’s stuck in traffic. When he’s finally home, the food’s not ready and the children are running like wild Indians around the house. At that moment, he blows his top! He loses control. He screams and shouts. And that demon of anger that’s been following him around all day slips in. When this takes place, he’s a ‘slightly different person’. His actions hurt the people he loves and those around him see something in him that was not who they love. How did he not know? Sly little devils, they are! In a moment of weakness it slipped in.
TORMENT-These demons torment spiritually with words in your head like, “GOD really doesn’t love you. No one’s really saved.” they torment mentally, and physically with disease or a common ailment such as arthritis.
COMPEL-Demons compel you to do things you wouldn’t normally do. Cussing is a common demon! People who rarely spit out such things are caught saying horrible words.
ENSLAVE-People can sin or stop sinning, if they decide. For instance, a man gets drunk then decides he’s done with liquor and drinks no more. He’s sinned but he’s not enslaved. But an alcoholic is a man who can’t stop drinking. He’s enslaved.
IF YOU COMBINE:
COMPEL & ENSLAVE together, you get ADDICTION.
99% of all addictions are demonic.
DEFILE-Projecting images, thoughts and things into our minds.
DECEIVE-Behind all forms of false religion. Doctrines of deceiving spirits which are pulling GOD’S children away. Many deceiving spirits out there.
SICKEN PEOPLE-demons cut to the chase and try to kill you with various forms of illnesses and even suicide. There is even a demon of sleep. You can stay up till 2am watching something you probably shouldn’t be watching but the minute you pick up a Bible, you fall asleep in minutes. Think of all the people who fall asleep in church!
ALL sin is committed in three (3) ways, namely by suggestion, pleasure, and consent. The devil makes the suggestion, the flesh delights in it, and the spirit consents!
AREAS OF OPERATION:
Hundreds of kinds~
Emotions and Attitudes-there are all kinds of demons which hide behind these.
REMEMBER; Demons operate in gangs!
Fear (symptom is rejection)
Gossip (Especially Church goers)
Criticism (especially Church goers)
These work in branches of one another!
There are many ways into the supernatural! But only One way to GOD!
ALL Oriental Religions
All religions of salvation through works
Crippling (Twisting of the body)
HOW DEMONS COME IN
Personal Occult involvement
Early Childhood pressures
Moment of place of weakness
Sinful acts or habits
Wall Broken Down-A person without willpower is like a city broken down without walls!
Be Humble-Pride is the greatest barrier to deliverance
Confess Your Faith in Jesus Christ
Confess any Known Sin of Yourself or Ancestors
Break Every Occult Contact/Object
Forgive ALL Other People-Not an emotion, it’s a decision
Stand on Scripture-Joel 2:32; Luke 10:19; 1 John 3:8; Colossians 1:13

“ALIENS” can alter our perception of our surroundings
“Aliens” can control what we think we see. They can appear to us in any number of guises, shapes, and forms.
“Aliens” can take us-our consciousness-out of our physical bodies, disable our control of our bodies, install one of their own entities, and use our bodies as vehicles for their own activities before returning our consciousness to our bodies.
“Aliens” can be present with us in an invisible state and can make themselves only partially visible.
BUT, this can all stop if your determined to SPEAK the Name of Jesus Christ!
