What Does The Bible Say
Can a Christian have a demon?
The answer is YES! Not always demon possessed, but rather under the influence of a demon because of legal right that was given to the enemy.
Demons can invade the soul and body of a believer (if given the ‘rights’ of course), but not the spirit (the real you), because the spirit belongs to the Lord. The soul is where your thoughts, emotions, and thinking is done. Demons can cause fear, depression, lust, uncontrollable anger, and other iniquities in the soul, and sickness and diseases in the body.
To answer the question in a nutshell, it doesn’t matter who you are (whether a believer or a non-believer), if you’ve given the enemy rights to your soul or body, then you are up for a spiritual infection that can result in demonic bondage. There are certain sins and things that a person can do, which can defile (make unclean) the person.
When a person is defiled, they are unclean and therefore vulnerable to a spiritual infection, and the ‘germs’ in this realm are demons.
How do demons gain access into the believer?
A lot of people like to believe that we cannot be touched by the enemy, which if we keep ourselves clean and stick in God’s ways, we can be “untouchable” by the enemy, BUT if we step outside the lines of protection and get ourselves dirty, we are practically begging for a spiritual infection which can lead to demonic influence and bondage.
Ecclesiastes 10:8, “He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and who so breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.” There is a hedge of protection around God’s people, but if there’s a hole in that hedge, it can open the door to the enemy and we can get bitten.
Paul warned the believers in Ephesians 4:27, “Neither give place to the devil.” Also, 2 Corinthians 2:11 tells us, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
Demons can enter once life because of many reasons:
- It may be a generational curse in your family bloodline – Freemasonry, etc.
- Rape or molestation
- Vows with the enemy
- Occult games that was played
- Witch doctors or palm readers that was visited
- Unholy sex create unholy soul ties
- Entering unholy ground
- Being bitter and unforgiving
What do demons do to people?
Many people believe that only the extreme case of mental problems are caused by demons, or that you have to be heavily involved in the occult or Satanism in order to have demons, but the Bible is clear that this is not true. It is perfectly normal to have absolutely no demons affecting your mind in any way, and still have a demon. The Bible speaks of people who were perfectly sane who have been crippled by demons, who Jesus cast spirits of deafness or dumbness, even blindness or infirmities out of (Luke 13:11, Mark 9:25, Matthew 12:22)!
If you look at Christians today most of them sitting with:
- marital problems
- finance problems
- deformed babies
- Demons can cause fear
- Uncontrollable anger, and other
- Iniquities in the soul, and
- Sickness and diseases in the body
- Cause of lesbian and homosexual relationships
The above mentioned can all be seed that we have sowed and still being reaped through your generation. Galations 6:7
How do I get delivered from bondage?
Jesus didn’t allow demons to continue tormenting people who came to Him, did He?
The Bible tells us that He healed (made whole, which includes casting out demons). ALL who were oppressed of the devil. This means even oppression should be dealt with, not written off and considered to be normal.
The first thing that you must do is to recommit your life to Jesus. Acts 2:17-18, Mark 16, John 3: 3-5, Isaiah 58:12, Isaiah 61, 43. Matt 18:18– 19. Deliverance will stop any bondage, Illness or affliction in your life as well as breaking bloodline curses in your family generation. So that we can have a clean spirit filled and abundant life and generation. Psalm 71:18, Psalm 145:4, Ephesians 6:1-3, Deutrononomy 32:32:7, Hebrew 13:7.
