My Conclusion And Recommended Reading

In the realm of spiritual warfare against demonic spirits, I believe there are 4 basic levels in which an individual believer may have to face – depending on what you may be dealing with in your present set of circumstances and what you may have in your past background.

Having the specific knowledge on what each one of these 4 levels are all about can really help you in being able to plan and carry out the appropriate battle strategy in which to defeat demons should they ever move in for an attack on either you or any of your close loved ones.

But before I get into exactly what these four areas are, I want to give you some very basic verses from the Bible showing you the importance that God the Father is placing on that we realize the reality of demonic spirits in this world, and that we not be afraid to engage and cast them out of people when we do run across them in this life.

Here are 8 very powerful verses from the Bible, all showing us that we are not to be afraid of demons, and that we are to directly engage with them if we have to, operating under God’s authority and anointing to be able to do so.

  1. And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe. In my name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues, they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.” (Mark 16:15-18)
  2. “Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee … the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:14-18)
  3. “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
  4. “Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1)
  5. “And He called the twelve to Him, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits … And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.” (Mark 6:7,13)
  6. “And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” (Matthew 10:1)
  7. “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” (Matthew 10:6-8)
  8. “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8)

If you will notice, every time Jesus gave His apostles the power and command to go out and walk with His anointing, He always told them to cast out demons as one of His specific commands – no exceptions!

So if Jesus was constantly casting out demons, always telling the apostles to cast out demons, and the apostles too were always casting out demons, then it should only be logical that the Church should continue to still cast out demons when needed.

It has been estimated by many Bible scholars that approximately 25% of the miracles Jesus had performed were Him casting demons out of people. Satan and his demons are not confined to the Bottomless Pit at this time. This event will not happen until Jesus returns back to us in His second coming. Until that event happens, Satan and his demons are still free to roam in the “air” seeking who they are going to try and devour next.

As Christians, we always have to remember that the devil and his demons are already defeated foes. Jesus has already defeated Satan at the cross when He was crucified.

What is now left is that all Christians have to realize that the victory is already ours.

We thus have to learn how to engage and defeat the devil and his demons when they do try to move in on a person or a situation – and sometimes this means a real live deliverance – because demons can attach themselves to people when they do move in for an attack.

And once they do, the only way to be able to drive them out is by the power of God!

Before I get into the four specific areas in which demons will try and come against people, especially Christians, there is one more big debate going on right now in the Body of Christ about how far demons can go with Christians. This debate is whether or not a demon can actually enter in on the inside of a Christian.

Many believe that once you are saved and become born again, that demons cannot enter in on the inside of you. The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit will literally come in and enter in on the inside of your human spirit at the moment of your conversion with Jesus. As a result of our bodies now becoming the temple of the Holy Spirit, they believe there is no way that a demon or a group of demons can enter in on the inside of your body.

At first glance, this does appear to be a very logical argument. However, what they are missing is the fact that the Bible tells us that we have three, distinct, separate parts to our being. We have a body, a soul, and a spirit. The Holy Spirit is living and dwelling in your human spirit, but He is not living up in your soul or body area.

If a Christian ends up committing a severe, door-opening sin and transgression against the Lord giving the demons full legal right to be able to directly attack him, then what the demons will try and do if they can get away with it is try and enter into that person’s body and soul. They will not be able to enter into the Christian’s spirit because the Holy Spirit is already living in there. But they will be able to enter into the body and soul of that person if the transgression has been deemed to be severe enough by the Lord.

Talk to any deliverance minister who does deliverances on a regular basis, and every single one of them will tell you that demons can enter in on the inside of a Christian, and that they then have to be cast out of them by way of an actual deliverance. In fact, they cannot cast the demons out of a person unless that person is a Christian to begin with, or unless that person is willing to become a Christian if they are not saved.

If an unsaved person has demons living and operating on the inside of them, they will have no spiritual authority to be able to cast the demons out of them. This kind of deliverance is only available for born-again Christians.

One of the things Christians can do to totally safeguard themselves from ever having a demon try to enter in on the inside of them is to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. We have an article in the Bible Basics section of our site on exactly what this gift is all about and how to properly receive it.

What happens with this second experience is that the Holy Spirit will release from your spirit and come up and enter into your soul. Once the Holy Spirit is residing in both your spirit and soul areas, then the demons will not be able to enter into your soul since the Holy Spirit is now living in there as a result of having received this gift.

This is why after a Christian gets delivered from demons, a deliverance minister will try and get the person to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit – to help safeguard and prevent the demons from ever being able to get back in on the inside of that person ever again.

This debate has been going on for a long time in the Body of Christ and will obviously never be resolved anytime in the near future. The only thing that I can personally tell you is that I have come across quite a few Christians who have had demons literally dwelling on the inside of them and they all had to have the demons cast out of them by way of an actual deliverance.

At the end of this article, I will give you a list of the best books ever written on the subject of deliverance and engaging with demons. Each one of these books have been written by very creditable, anointed men and women of God who have learned much in this area of spiritual warfare. And what you will find out very quickly when reading from each one of them is that they have all found out in the real battlefields of life where this kind of activity does exist, that Christians can draw demons on the inside of them if the demons have the appropriate legal rights to be able to enter in.

As I get into the four specific areas where demons can directly attack a Christian, you will see me break this down into two very basic areas. If demons come in for an attack, they will either try and attack you from an outside position, which means they are attacking you from the “air.” When they are attacking you from an outside position, they are not on the inside of your body or soul. These attacks are coming at you from the outside of your being.

The other position that demons can attack you is from the inside position, which means they are attacking you from the inside of your body. And if they are on the inside of your body being able to attack you from this inside position, then something has happened that has given them the legal right to be able to enter in on the inside of you.

Your job will then be to find out what their legal right is so that you can get it properly broken before God the Father. Once you have properly broken all of their legal rights before God the Father, then you can turn around and command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus.

But whether you are dealing with demons attacking you from an outside position or from an inside position – the rules are still the same.

Find out what their legal rights are, properly break those legal rights before God the Father, and then turn around and verbally cast all of them out in the name of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

As much as I hate to say this, there is a real war game going on between God and the devil for all of our souls. And in this war game are real, live, demonic spirits who will come after people, especially Christians – and they will try to get away with inflicting as much death, terror, destruction, and oppression as they possibly can.

This is why the Bible is telling us that we are to resist the devil – that we are to cast out demons when and where needed – and that we are to become good soldiers of Jesus Christ.

We are to be as bold as lions, and we are to learn how to walk in the anointing of God so that we can properly use the power and authority that God has already given to each one of us through His Holy Spirit.

The Bible makes it very clear as to what kind of big picture we all have to deal with. Each Christian thus has to make up their own personal mind as to how they will deal with this big picture and the war games that are really going on behind the scenes between God and the devil.

The apostle Paul could not have said it any better when he said that our real battle in this life is not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers, which are demons and demon powers.

You can either learn how to rise up and walk with the anointing and power of God in your life so as to be able to do battle against your enemies, whether they be demons or other evil people – or you can choose to hide your head in the sand and let demons and other evil people keep tearing you and your family to pieces.

We have another article in the “Spiritual Warfare” section of our site titled, “Battle Verses of the Bible.” In this article, I give you 100 of the best battle verses from the Bible showing you that God the Father is a “Man of War,” that He does have a war side to His personality, and that He will not hesitate to go into battle for you and your close loved ones if you are willing to stand up and fight your enemies as a true soldier of Jesus Christ.

But before God can go into battle for you, you will first have to be willing to march onto that battlefield and face your enemy head on like David did with Goliath. The choice is yours.

In the “Testimonies” section of our site, we have several powerful testimonies from people who were taught how to directly engage with their enemies, and in several of these cases, their enemies were demonic spirits.

These people were all getting torn apart with what these demons were able to get away with – and this was all occurring because they did not know how to directly engage with them and how to drive them off them and their current situation.

Once we showed them how to go on the offensive and directly engage with these demons, every single one of them received complete and total deliverance – and in most of the cases, deliverance came within 24-48 hours. This is how powerful a thing it really is if you can learn how to go on the offensive against your enemies by operating under the authority, power, and guidance of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.

Now onto the first 2 different areas you may have to face when dealing with any type of direct attacks from demonic spirits.

    Prayer Request: my husband requires transfer back from vellore to chennai. he was transferred
    due to administrative reasons . while attendng a prayer meeting it was revealed that some one
    close to us have done witchcraft on us so that we split and lead a miserable life. he always
    goes into depression, both the extreme moods. one extreme he doesnt eat, dress properly not
    interested in his job, the other extreme, he used to spend lavishly, speak filthy, watch porn
    movies even when children are at home, physical and verbal abuse due to which i moved out of
    the house. now we are living separately from my husband as he had physically, mentally abused
    me and i couldn’t tolerate his harassment , pls pray for his revival and his transfer so that

    my eldest son also seem affected by a curse or witchcraft doesnt show interest in his studies and but pray that he finishes his engineering degree in 4yrs, and get job immediately. he has become very rude and arrogant as he feels that there is no one to control him. he is very selfish and if he wants something then only he behaves well otherwise, he shouts at me and even raises his hand on me. what all his dad did to me my son is doing on me now.

    my eldest son should forgive and reunite with his dad. .

      Hi Agnes, Jesus is the answer to all things.. i would suggest going into a fasting and prayer… Jesus has said certain kind of demon can only be dealt with through fasting and prayer.. this is a powerful tool against spiritual battles.. also play alot of praise and worship in the home… and the bible says ‘We are more than conquers in Christ Jesus’.

      • Synetta Howard - July 6, 2017 at 8:31 am

        How much fasting for how long and how many hours

    • Robyn - July 23, 2017 at 5:54 pm

      Are you SURE this is a possession and not just a narcissistic, abusive husband who your son has learned poor behaviours from?

  3. Karen - November 24, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    I have a question for you: Do you have any teachings on curses that are placed on one from another person? I have experienced what I believe may be that kind of situation. I was involved in a casual friendship with a neighbour who became very angry at my simple expression of my faith. She was so angry that she became very vicious and spread malicious gossip. I seemed to sense destructive forces arrayed against me following that incident and eventually left the community. Can such situations be due to a curse?
    Thank you. Karen

    • Mike - November 25, 2011 at 12:35 am

      Go to Spiritual Warfare section and go to article titled, “Dealing With the Legal Rights of Demons.” We have a caption in there on curses.

  4. KIng's daughter - November 27, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Wow – I know a woman who said number 9 of the list “no part in the following areas” concerning verbal abuse in the home was creating spiritual problems, but this is the first time that I’ve heard of this. What more could be added to get this through to her spouse?

  5. Truth - December 2, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    I found this very helpful. I do believe that sin that is not confessed and repented by a parent can pass on to children. What if you confessed and repent for your sins in the past. Does that give a legal right to demonic attack? I thought after all sins were confessed and repented through the blood of Jesus that it is forgiven. Also is it OK for Christians to start warfare? I thought as Christians we do not and can not judge anyone. I also find that some Christians are liars too, I mean boldface liars! That is the reason why so many people that really need Christian guidance don’t go because they are afraid to be judged or people acting holier than thou. No one is perfect, but please don’t act like you never done anything wrong. I know some athiests that are nicer and morally correct than some of the Christians I know.

  6. Lori Anderson - December 5, 2011 at 11:48 pm

    Ephesians 6: 10 – 18 specifically tells us to put on the whole armor of God when dealing with grave matters as these. In these verses God is speaking to us telling us not to be afraid for this is his realm, his issues, we are to invoke the HOLY SPIRIT THROUGH Jesus’s name, read the bible and ask the Holy Spirit to wrestle with these spirits as we quote this verse and Matthew where Jesus was resurrected so that we could have eternal life.

    Although I will agree with you that the Holy Spirit enters us when we are baptized, because we have free will, we have to ask the Holy Spirit to reign in us daily, by praying, asking God to forgive us, forgive others, show us our errors including pride and arrogance. They are on the top of this list because that was Lucifer’s great sin…jealous of Jesus he lied and convinced angels with half truths and judged our Creator.

    Furthermore, God warns us not to deal in witchcraft multiple verses in the bible warn us …which includes marrying out of faith (yoked). I believe if we should not engage in speaking with spirits or approaching these spiritual realm by just calling out Jesus name, since it places us in as vulnerable position as the angels of heaven were placed in..God asks us to rely on him for protection, deliverance and all of our worries and concerns, this applies to spiritual warfare and demonic possession as well.

    If we worship God the way Jesus worshiped God, we will be following God’s commandments not man’s commandments (remember man changed God’s day of worship from Saturday (Sabbath) to Sunday (sun worship day because Constantine wanted to invite the Pagans to join Christianity) and the Jews who were influenced by worshiping graven images..look at your church to make sure you are not bowing down to a saint which is a graven image, also Jesus said to pray to God the father and was specific when he gave us the Lord’s prayer as the prayer we should pray. (I know tradition in church makes it difficult to recognize what God has told us not to do..but man has perverted God’s commandments).

    Having witnessed supernatural events as a child and not knowing what they were ghosts (the bible is clear that the dead are asleep and know not one thing) and that these ghosts are satanic spirits, often imitating loved ones etc to confuse humanity from reading their bibles and having the reliance they should on God and his will in our lives.

    I appreciate this site and hope that others will begin to read their bibles asking the Holy Spirit to guide them to truth. Furthermore, allow God to eradicate these spirits as I believe Jesus was given authority to do so and the disciples as they were ordained by Jesus with God’s direction. Although we have good people on earth that God uses (remember he even uses the unclean to do good) and wants us to be ambassadors for Christ, this area is a very dangerous one to delve into.

    A hedge of protection is given when we sing hymns in our homes, praying calling out on God’s tender mercies and thanking him for everything we experience, we use positive speech, we fill our homes with positive reading materials, books, we turn off the TV (mostly filth), turn off internet sites etc that do not edify God or each other.

    Prayer is essential for Christian growth..but so is reading the bible to understand God’s character, to give us guidance and provide strength and hope. Faith is personal it must be built and it will be tried..salvation does not come to us from what our parents did or what our spouse does..we are accountable for our time, our spirit and our actions…Praying that this has blessed you and others..

  7. L - December 9, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    I believe my current husband is a level 4. As a matter of fact he is. There is actually a divorce pending that he filed, but we are going to be stuck at least until next year. I don’t know how to help him realize what the enemy is doing. His father is a preacher. I tried to minister to him but I did come off kind of harsh, and had to ask God to forgive me. Shortly, after i found the verse that says if you see a brother in sin then restore him gently..i left out a few words but it’s Timothy 5:1-2. I can tell the spirits have taken over him just by looking in his eyes. It is sad. I guess my focus is breaking the curse so my sons will not cursed. ALso praying that i do not regress. I will still pray for him, but find it odd that his parents just stand by and do nothing.

  8. Anonymous - December 20, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    I need warfare prayers for my friend , who is 21 years old. He met this girl about 3 months ago who is 29 years with 2 children and has decided to marry her in the next 2 months. Within the time they are together they have had up and downs. Both she and his mother has cast a spell on him, his mother wants to control his life. He had a precious previous girlfriend within his age range and they were getting along very well with no problems. They were together for 2 1/2 years, but the mother did not like her. Recently he just got up and walked out of her life and went to meet this lady whom he is about to marry. He really needs powerful prayers to get out of there. This is exactly what the mother did to his father and he is in a bad condition right now. So Please pray for my friend and his father for the spells to be broken before he goes to live with the girl and they gets married in jesus name amen.

  9. brittney - January 2, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    My case is pretty differnt, I was under demonic attack because of something that had happened to my daughter . She was 4 when she was molested and I never knew because she had only stayed with a babysitter who was also a close friend she suffered from nightmares as a infant and I never knew why but i could just sence something wrong but she never talked about it i just assumed the sleep problems were normal untill i realized it was a demonic atack of some sort I took her to a local church and explained to the minister what i had been experiancing I did not know she had been sexauly abused untill he prayed over her a few hours later she told me what had happen and that night the demonic activity was bad it lingered around my home still for a while and once in a while it still lingers around to bring distrought in my life !!!! The word of God is strong and I belive it does help to truely belive !!! The activity still once in a while picks up i have no open door ways and my daughter is 6 now …. I just pray it leaves her alone it was a women who had molested her is there a certain demon i should pray against ???? The county that I live in just arrested the person who commited the crime and the night before they arrested her I came across some doors slamming in my home something letting me know there was something there . I just wonder if my daughter is soul tied to this paticular individual in some way . My daughter has had no contact with the person in 2 years I just wish I knew what I was messing with but very few people are helpfull in this area. I have said every prayer I can I just belive my daughter may need additional help but i also know that there was demonic activity that took place because of what happen to her

    • Lyn - February 17, 2017 at 6:59 am

      I’m so sorry this happened to you , read the bible every single night with your daughter on your knees before bed . Every day study and do fasting if possible for yourself only . Just study study study the bible everyday , pray before meals it will go away for good.

  10. Stephen - January 24, 2012 at 6:49 am

    Nice article, like the others I have read so far. In terms of this one. I am being led by God (in my Belief today at this hour), the people become confused between between as good and true morally vs. because OF God’s vicious love and grace, walking in Spirit and in Truth. As noted, an Atheist can be morally correct, but much perceived morally good behavior is sociologically oriented. What works in some foreign land might not work in one’s home country, which could also include the prevalent religion to that area. In Spirit and Truth, there is only One, fulfilled through God’s vicious Love through Grace, which is bestowed to any and all through Enlightenment / Jesus / New Life /Rebirth. Heard of “A Course in Miracles”? Little known trivia, the main author had been an Atheist before their Enlightenment. THAT is powerful. In regard to practicing a homosexual life style. I have been Enlightened that this could be a form of prejudice, BUT, many of them have improper (like many do as well) ‘lifestyles’…which separate them from God. It is not the person, it is the behavior. I know homosexuals who are devout Christians and do not live ‘the lifestyle’. They have a special place in God’s kingdom. Old Testament rhetoric under the laws of Moses and projections from that might imply differently…but Jesus never said a thing about this. God’s Love knows no bounds..there is only one thing to know….LOVE. It is not for me to judge what is Love and what is not…it is in the Spirit of the Believer. As far as the moral issues and atheism as well as Christians. Morals becomes a moot point when walking as well as possible (we are not Saints all the time, being in the flesh)…Morals are just another way of “Laws of Moses” thinking. It’s a means to an end..it is cause and effect. There is no cause and effect , nor means to an end in my Spiritual Walk. It just IS..no comparisons, no relativity to anything else. That is all materialism..including my very thoughts of the material mind/brain. Upon the amazing Lightning Storm, the Crashing of walls falling, the layers of the onion pealing away..the one God STILL wakes me with before sunrise (BEST TIME OF DAY!)..I always Bear in mind: Truth, Love, Righteousness, Forgiveness. Remove all judgement. Those were brought to me..before ever picking up a book..even the Bible. The Bible is now verifying the very thing Jesus delivered..which to me for my life..is nothing short of an all out miracle.

  11. Godblessall - January 29, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    I will sit down with my Bible and this study as there’s much to learn. Praise God that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. Yes brother it’s all about relationship, although lifestyle should reflect that relationship. Yes, miracle of miracles, priciples list #44! Another miracle to get books from the library — I need a miracle

    what happens to Born Again Christians who still struggle with sin and they die?I feel like I should know this, not sure and very concerned.Some Loved ones who love the Lord have died struggling with addictions. Looking for God’s Word to answer this. Can anyone HELP? The Word please, the Word. thank you.

  13. maizie - February 15, 2012 at 8:47 am

    The battle over what we refer to as addictions is a situation where we have not understood our freedom in Jesus Christ because if we are lead by the spirit then the flesh should not be in control i.e. addictions. The lies promoted by human wisdom does not support this truth.

    Your spirit, if you are born again/born from above, does not and cannot die. John 11:26

  14. Stephen - February 15, 2012 at 11:48 am

    If you really want to open a can of worms search Buddhism and Jesus. Addictions, I think are poppycock which aid in the realm of medicine and psychology to support them It goes down to philosophy, science (of which is psychology), and religion…cannot have one in total without the other…and within man is body, soul, spirit..(the Trinity of Father, Son, Holy Ghost)…is there the science of God.. in my mind is Love. Everything else is degrees of separation from that. Okay, off topic…what were we talking about? I do know that within a period of 3 days when it came to finality I was healed of bipolar, alcohol, eating disorder, anxiety…now..the rest is getting my head straight again and contemplating Jesus, Buddha, etc…to Enlightenment..the shebang. Never a dull moment…where was I? I do not know, but some where within the masses and churches and bowling alleys. I have Faith and religion..but will not always find them in the same place. 12 Step AA/NA? Have to start somewhere….it scares me though …but so does politics.

  15. Laura - February 15, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Seija,
    I think it’s safe to say that ALL christians suffer with sin. Even Jesus was tempted with sin from the Devil and tested for 40 days and 40 nights. All that matters is that the blood of Jesus washes us, redeems us from every sin and circumstance. So every sin has already been paid for by the blood of Jesus, regardless of what that sin is. All HE requires to go to heaven is that we have accepted Jesus as our savior; believe that we have been redeemed – then HE writes our names in heaven. That is the only requirement to enter into heaven. Christians are not without sin. The difference is that as Christians we have spiritual freedom in Christ in knowing no matter what comes our way, we have eternal salvation that can NEVER be taken away. Here are scriptures that back this up:

    “the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth
    us from all sin.”

    Leviticus 17:11, 14 (cp. Deuteronomy 12:23) “For the life of the flesh
    is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an
    atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement
    for the soul…. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life
    thereof …”

    Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood
    of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony …”

    7. Hebrews 9:14 “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who
    through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,
    purge your conscience …”

    There are many more scriptures that back this up…so many more. So please don’t be worried about the passing of your loved ones. Remember that it is the Lord’s timing and HIS alone. God does our battling for us and takes us home when it is time. Rest assured they are in a better place, now FREE from all addiction and sin, smiling and laughing with Jesus Christ. I hope this helps. Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy. He wants to use this as a wedge between you and the Lord to cause you to doubt your faith. Blessings to you and I hope this message reaches you soon enough. Father, I just come to you now and I plead the blood of Jesus over Seija and I come against any attacks of the enemy in the name of Jesus that are trying to confuse rob or steal from Seija’s faith. I ask for peace that passes all understanding to flow into Seija now. Thank you Lord Jesus. Amen.

    Laura,

    Please do not take offense to me for correcting but Jesus fasted and prayed for 40 days and nights. This was preparation for the inevitable temptation brought by Satan to doubt God and God’s Word. Jesus showed us how to overcome satan by His example.

    And Stephen, there is no Buddha connected to Jesus. You have accepted a lie or a few of them. If Jesus has set you free then you should know this.

  17. Laura - February 17, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Maizie,

    No offense taken and thank you for explaining that way better than I did – LOL – in re-reading, I realize I didn’t quite state that correctly. I just wanted to get the point across that even Jesus had to deal with temptation, without trying to get too legalistic and keeping the focus on the fact that HE died for us on the cross – which is enough, as long as we have accepted him as our savior, we have the blessed assurance that we know where we are going when we die, regardless of what we go through here on earth and for each individual Christian, this may be different. And I also felt like Seija might be tested in this way also from the enemy, to doubt the God. Anyway, this was the point and I hope it helped.

    Totally agree with you on no Buddha being connected to Jesus…Jesus IS the only way.

    Blessings to you Maizie!

  18. Stephen - February 18, 2012 at 2:03 am

    I agree, was mainly referring to a uhhum..’website’ making that claim. There seems to be a connection, as many of the words are quite similar (parables). Any explanation as how that can be? There also is a connection in the islam faith with Jesus, but do not know what exactly to believe other than what I’ve read on Wikipedia. Jesus remains the key for myself…thank you for making the call on this, Maizie. I have found writing now in CS Lewis in his book “Miracle” (he had been Atheist for a time)…regarding that few will accept Miracles without having gone through what all to many call being re-born…vs….redemption…vs (another word cannot recall). There is confusion in the terms out there, but I personally know what happened in the past year and it was nothing short of meeting God upon claiming Jesus as the redeemer. (hope I have terms correct). That book goes into also using close scrutinzation over lots of half-baked ‘truth’ out there in books and publications, as well as even clergy not fully ‘getting it’ by virtue of the very positions they are in to get lost in doctrine of their theologies and mind…can only not think to receive the Word of God in prayer and meditation, and understand the Bible more deeply in that way. Until 3 months ago, I had hardly cracked it open for a long time, now it is most fascinating. To find that much research is going on out there during Jesus’ ‘missing years’ in the Bible is a big puzzle, requiring a lot of scrutiny…the missing links.

  19. maizie - February 18, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    The whys of othere religions using Jesus’ name in whatever way they do is for the universalism which is strongly coming our way. And to be sure satan copies and mimics (never creates). Once we have established in our heart that God is true, never lies or changes like shifting shadows then we can be confident in understanding the methods the enemy uses so he can steal, kill and destroy.

  20. Lisa - February 23, 2012 at 9:42 am

    This article is exceptional. I have been praying, asking God to teach me about the legal rights and how to break them. After reading this article, He answered my prayer, plus a few more and He made sure it with step by step instructions which makes it so helpful.

    Nobody really understands what these demons are capable of doing until they actually experience it for themselves. I’m a new Christian for about a year now and what I have experienced so far, I never would have believed before and I never would have been able to imagine either. Someone tried to tell me some of it years ago and I thought he was crazy and never wanted to talk to him again. This stuff is true no matter how much someone tries not to believe it and it doesn’t keep you safe from it either. Even my husband, who was an atheist at one time, believes because he saw and experienced it too. One can continue to be ignorant of the truth if they choose to do so, but I feel sorry for them because they’re missing out on so much.

    What I don’t understand is when we don’t know about something, we usually read a book, take a class or find some way to learn about it. How can we say we know about something if we’ve never checked it out to find out for sure. I could never tell a carpenter, chemist or a brick layer they’re not doing their job right because I never learned about it. The same thing applies to God and the supernatural world, how does one know if they haven’t checked it out long enough to know anything about Him.

    I never understood what “if you seek Me with all your heart, you will find Me” meant until this year and so far, it has been truly incredible. I feel like this whole world of God has been kept secret from me for all my life and in a way, I feel cheated, but the good thing is, I know it now and it’s only the beginning, I can’t imagine what else there is to learn because everyday I’m finding out more and more.

    May God truly bless everyone and removes every blinder from their eyes, mind and heart, so they will be able to see the truth, be set free and have a very happy life.

    I thought we were supposed to be like sheep holding on to just our faith. But I saw the verse saying if you have the strength and do not use it you will have your day of judgement. These are truly bad times with the worse to come. I constantly find myself asking dumb questions and finding wonderful answers. Thank you for being there.
    It’s the first time visiting your site but now that God has shown me the way I’ll be back and spread the word.
    thank you

  22. Clare - March 1, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    Thankyou so much for this site and the excellent information contained within it. I have been a Christian for nearly five years, I turned to God after many years of delving into the occult, at different times I read about, or sought teaching in the areas of astrology, wicca, clairvoyancem mediumship, astral travel, etc etc. I felt drawn to anything “new age” and also practiced a type of meditation called “kundalini” which I now understand prepares the path for possession. I now realise that I probably had not one but a number of demons working from inside my body, impelling me deeper and deeper into sin, and what was worse, I now understand from your site that I had given them ‘legal right’ to be there. Even as a Christan, worshipping god on Sundays, attending mass, and going to confession, these demons have remained inside my body for four and a half years, tormenting me when I try to sleep, attacking me during the night, sending me evil dreams, souring my relationships between friends and family, and taking away an pleasure in activities I used to enjoy including doing my artwork, eating food, and being intimate with my parter. I have suffered from horrible hallucinations (e.g. blood dripping down from walls) a horrible pressure inside my head, piercing noises when I try to sleep, the list goes on and on. I hope others will read this and learn from it. Now however I have hope, I am going to fast today and prey, and then ask the holy spirit what to do to get them out. I don’t feel able to combat them myself, I don’t feel strong enough and in my deepest of hearts, while it goes against what this site recommends I don’t feel that people should try to do this sort of stuff on their own. While god gave righs to the disciples I feel these were specially chosen people by God on earth to do his work for him. I think I am going to seek out a prayer ministry or some kind of other deliverance.

    • Vincent - October 29, 2016 at 2:42 pm

      This seems all too familiar to me. I believe I am experiencing something very much like you have. Please tell me how you made out? Hopefully you have banished the attacks by now.

  23. maizie - March 3, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    Clare, I am so thankful you are getting set free from those lies which entangle us.
    I am going to put your name on my prayer wall which is in my kitchen.

    Did you know that many false shepherds have introduced Kundalini to the church as the Holy Spirit?

    I thank God for you.

  24. maizie - March 11, 2012 at 7:29 am

    AC,there are spirits which specifically follow a particular person because of the nature of the person’s activities.
    I once saw a spirit of gossip outside of a church. It looked like a cross between a cat and a monkey and it ran across my path and into the shadows of a vehicle parked in the parking lot. I was only visiting the church and when I told the friend who had invited me she said that they had had a problem in the church with the pastor’s wife gossiping. Perhaps it had been rebuked and sent away which is what I had seen. I didn’t see it with human eyes except I didn’t realize that until later.

    The point is there are spirits which flock to a particular scene such as a spirit of lust in a bar.
    There is an excellent list on this site which gives the demonic spirits and their heads. I have seen a spirit of murder roaming the streets. New Years Eve is a favorite for this spirit. I saw the spirit of murder looking to enter someone and the Lord told me to bind it and I did as He said. What a difference if more people would pray with the Lord’s leading.

    I wanted to Thank You for the Artical above and for the Deliverence part of this prayer. I too was under Extream demonic attack. No one on this earth could free me of it. After finding your website… which I was lead to it By The Lord I believe I have taken the steps you suggested. It only happened this morning so I need to give it some time but I feel so much better and I know I will be free of them soon! My situation is very complicated But I wanted to Thank you and I thank God he brought me to find it. I was not even searching for this type of Information yet I eneded up here! Thank you so much! I feel as though after 50 years I have finally gotten my life back! God Bless you!

  26. maizie - March 31, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    This spirits in your brother can be bound. You have authority over demons in the name of Jesus/Luke 10″:19 and to be sure, satan is a liar.
    This means you can tell the demons to be quiet, to be still and to not manifest, speak or communicate to anyone or thing and bind the strongman who is the doorkeeper of demons in your brother and then when all is bound, gagged and been told to desist(this is on this site and its about commanding the demons thusly)

    I do not believe that your brother has ever been allowed by satan to receive love. Satan has “owned him” and has tortured him the whole of his life it seems.

    Think about this: When Abraham gathered the animals for the covenant with God as per God’s instructions and Abraham cut them in half except for the birds and placed them opposite each other, Abraham had to fight the vultures off. These vultures were demonic and were trying to prevent God’s covenant from being effected.

    We are still running vultures and buzzards off even today. They have to flee when we tell them to flee in Jesus name! Praise God!

  27. maizie - July 23, 2012 at 8:52 am

    Bruce is right on several things but too many Christians are completely ignorant on how evil manifests.
    Understanding and knowledge is not “focusing on evil” but is removing darkness and bringing light to the subject.
    Of course there is only ONE name given under heaven in which we have been given authority to cast out demons and take back that which they have stolen. But do we understand how it is stolen in the first place?

    Those unclean spirits which are seen in the homosexual area are for the most part unknown by well meaning Christians who are still going to the world for their education. Knowing Jesus Christ is Lord is all important but we still need to know there is a strongman who keeps the person bound.

  28. bruce - July 23, 2012 at 10:14 am

    I think maybe sometimes demonic attack just has to do with persecution of the Christians too. I Thessalonians 2:17, “Wherefore we wold have come unto you, even I paul, once again; but Satan hindered us.” Even Paul the appostle came under the attack of Satan. Also I know that Satan is called the accuser of the brethren he will attempt to accuse you of being unforgiven of sins in the past when Christ has forgiven you. The important thing is to keep your sins confessed and to keep confidence in the promises of God. 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

  29. Norina Purro - September 23, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Dear Bruce, My three year old grand daughter keeps seeing what she calls dinasaus and evil things. This gets worse every day. She keeps saying something bad is going to happen to the family. She says that she wants Jesus to protect her but she can’t see him. She sees angels, too. She will not leave her mother’s side or her father for one minute. She is frightened. This has been happening for about 2 weeks now. She keeps saying she wants to go to heaven where it is safe. I am a missionary and not around her. About three months ago she gave her life to Christ when I was visiting. Normally, she is a happy child who loves God and loves to worship. What do you think is happening.
    Love in Christ,
    Norina

  30. bruce - September 26, 2012 at 11:27 am

    Dear Norina Purro,

    The first thing I would say about demonic attack is this. There is too much emphasis put on the devil. Jesus is more powerful than the devil. Jesus has already defeated the devil when He died on the cross for the sins of the world. Those who trust in Jesus are redeemed. They are bought out of the slave market of sin. I think that sometimes Christians are calling demonic attack is really, ‘persecution.” The Christian life is one which is based on faith in the Word of God. I dot not believe that Jesus or the angels of God will appear unto to men becuase we live this life by faith not by sight just as it says in the Bible. Also I do not believe that there is much to fear from the fallen angels or demons in the sense of their presence coming around us because just as it says in Psalms 34:7, “The Angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.” Jesus himself and his angels protect us. the devil did come and tempt Christ and he will come and tempt other Christians. But I think what you are describing is a form of persecution. There are people who turn away form the truth and are given over to evil and become possessed by demons. The only way a demon can come around a Christian is if God allows it for some reason. Ultimately it is God that is in control of all things. Psalms 35:3 sa,s “Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persectue me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.” Jesus can end persecution at anytime. The Angel of the LORD, Jesus Christ, is there to protect you and his children. Little children cannot be possessed by demons they are innocent and not old enough to be held accountable. I think you are being persecuted. Keep in mind the human mind is like a computor. Computor’s can be hacked through technology. This is a very manipulative form of persecution which is done to Christians by people who probably are demonicly possessed becuase the demons themselves for the most part cannot come around christians becuase the angels of God and God himself protects us. If you are being persecuted this way i would suggest the best thing to do is to pray and to keep in mind the promises of the Bible. I would also try to be very discerning of people becuase there are wolves in sheeps clothing. For the most part the goal of the evil forces against the Christians is to try to get them to sin and to be a bad testimony. When the mind is attacked it can cause hallucinations and it can result in a person acting wild and crazy. If if the mind is attacked you need to be very careful not to do anything crazy. I have experienced these same types of attacks myself personally and i know for a fact that it is some kind of computor technology used to hack the mind which is itself a computor. In my mind it is the same concept as someone using wireless internet where computors can connect one to another wirelessless. The mind is a computor its the same thing. It probably involves the use of computors and satelittes just as normal wireless internet does. It is a form of persecution being used on christians. I think that the evil men who do this target especially the children of Christian parents for the goal of trying to prevent them from turning to Jesus for salvation. The best way to handle any form of persecution is to study the Bible and to pray. Jesus can deliver us from any kind of situation. Hopefuly he will return and take us from the earth before any worse form of persecution comes upon us. Despite these manipulative mental forms of persecution that are being done I do believer God is in control. As Christians we need to cling to the promises of God. I am very sorry to hear that this is h apening to your grand daughter. But im pretty sure its happening to alot of Christians and their children. Its persecution of Christians is what it is.

  31. Lauren - October 26, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Where is the scripture that shows any of the sort? Mark 1:21, This man is in a synagogue, the demons have complete control over Him and are not letting the man speak, be aware if one is possessed, they will not say wether they are a christian or not. In the power of Jesus, anyone, believers or unbelievers can be cleansed, can be set free from demons and all sorts of evils, Jesus frees them , Believers who truly are who they say they are, can cast demons out of anyone, in growing with Christ we will learn to fast and pray and have power over all spiritual forces. Jesus died for all, His power is greater than all, than any demon, command them to leave and never come back. I command any evil to leave this site and never have control over anyones minds who read what is not true, may God our Father’s glory shine through and all honor be given to Him!

    If a Christian ends up committing a severe, door-opening sin and transgression against the Lord giving the demons full legal right to be able to directly attack him, then what the demons will try and do if they can get away with it is try and enter into that person’s body and soul. They will not be able to enter into the Christian’s spirit because the Holy Spirit is already living in there. But they will be able to enter into the body and soul of that person if the transgression has been deemed to be severe enough by the Lord.

    Talk to any deliverance minister who does deliverances on a regular basis, and every single one of them will tell you that demons can enter in on the inside of a Christian, and that they then have to be cast out of them by way of an actual deliverance. In fact, they cannot cast the demons out of a person unless that person is a Christian to begin with, or unless that person is willing to become a Christian if they are not saved.

    The Bible says in the book of Ephesians 4:30, “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” The word redemption in the greek means to be bought out of the market place. in the days when the new testament was written slaves were bought out of the market place. Spiritual redemption is found in Jesus Christ who died for the sins of the world. Those who have trusted in Christ for salvation through repentance of their sins are redeemped from the slave market of sin. Once dead in sins they are made alive in Christ. The Spirit of God comes and indwells with that person on permanent basis. In no way shape or form can demons possess a Christian, the Christian is possessed by the spirit of God. The human brain which controls your senses and nerves can be attacked, a form a persecution and it can effect your perception of things, but this is simply physical not spiritual. Christ has redeemed those that have turned from their sins to Jesus. Salvation is based on the grace of God through faith and not of works. It is based on the work of Christ therefore once saved always saved. Redeemed from sin. Demons cannot posses a Christian in any way shape or form. The evil forces and evil men of this world who are against the word of God and oppose the Gospel of Jesus Christ will try to use the government to persecute Christians. This does not make it legal. Of course you should always respect authority unless it goes against the word of GOd then you should obey the word of God and not man. For example I will preach the gospel even though the governments of this world oppose it. Becuase the Bible says to do so. But at the same time i will drive the speed limit becuase that is the law of the land. There is way too much emphasis on the devil on this website when you are talking about demons. Jesus Christ is the one who is above things and before all things. Jesus is the king of kings. I suggest you study the scriptures. Visit Biblegems.com if you want to read some verse by verse sermons. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. This is the victory which overcomes the world, faith in the promises of God. GOd does not give Christians over to the devil. Christians are redeemed by the blood of the lamb. John chapter 10:27-29, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.”

    Superstition is not faith. The Christian life is one of Faith in the promises of God not superstition. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Words of God says Romans 10:17. The evil forces of this world are out to attack the Christians faith. God wants you to grow in your faith in Christ. To do this you need to study the word of God. Biblegems.com

    Jesus taught the disciples in Luke 17 chapter in verse 1, He said that it is not impossible and offenses will come. This is a great article teaching believers how to overcome demonic attacks. Demons are just as real today as they has always been. They are sent to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus pointed out in His teaching that the sin of unforgiveness will create an opening in your protective hedge allowing Satan to send his evil spirits (demons) in to launch spiritual attacks. When you fail to forgive, you become bitter,angry and those sins of the flesh will draw demonic spirits into your life. The reason is because they now have legal authority to come after you.When you commit an offense,there are sins that create an opening and demons can attach themselves to you when this open has been created. Satan sends his demons to those who are saved and has accepted Jesus Christ to gain a strong hold on the believer. Bruce, why will Satan spend time attacking the unsaved?

  35. yellowlady05 - February 15, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    TO MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST:
    I am currently doing a study on spiritual warfare. The study book our ladies group is using is entitled, “Standing Strong—How to Resist the Enemy of Your Soul,” by John Macarthur. I’m told that the book is being offered for free at this time. In it there many disturbing statements made that almost compelled me to drop the class. Instead, I will continue to the end in order to shed light and to see what specifically the prayer needs are of those attending, as well as this author.
    At first, the study seemed elementary to me, because I’ve been on this battlefield several times and exercised authority over demons attempting to take control of my spirit, in control of a family member’s spirit, and one released from my spirit (all as a Christian). We’re being taught that demons cannot enter Christians. Yet, there are many examples in the Bible (including Jesus himself) that the devil attempted to enter, or did take control (Saul, Peter, Job, Adam and Eve). He tempted Jesus after Jesus had fasted 40 days in the wilderness. Saul committed suicide. Jesus rebuked the demon in Peter. He was given the right by God to afflict and attack Job. He succeeded with Adam and Eve (we know their story). There are many other “believers turned bad” stories (King David, Samson, Joseph’s brothers, etc.). The author would probably say in Standing Strong, (my quote) “David was never really a believer.” Yet, the Word says, “David was a man after God’s own heart.”
    The enemy is also trying to undermine and limit our faith to exercise authority over demons buy stating that this power (to cast out demons) was only given to Jesus and the disciples. Did demons only exist back then? No, they still exist today, and those who fear them make excuses for their lack of faith to use this option God has given us (Mark 16:17, Luke 9:1, Mark 6:7, 13, Matthew 10:1, 10:6-8, I John 3:8, Luke 11:24, etc.). We do the same with the Bible reference of speaking in tongues (I Cor 12-14) and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We opt out by explaining that they were for that time period. Yet, Christ told his disciples to “Go ye therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.” Was this for just back then, or do we pick and choose what is relevant for today in the Word?—God forbid. Are we to …”have a form of godliness and deny the power thereof.”
    I will agree with the author only on a couple points; every trial and test is not a demon nor is every sickness (i.e., common cold or flu). We are to resist the devil with the Word of God. However, when we recognize with certainty demonic possession, we are given the right to exercise the power God has given us to take authority over them and cast them out! The deceiver is definitely on his job to create controversy and division within the church—“divide and conquer.”

    In my ignorance I gave the devil a foothold in my life . You cannot imagine the suffering I endure every day . I became a disabled person because of this .
    I want nothing more then to get this thing off of me so please Pray for me and offer any advice you think might help me . The Spirit made itself known to me 3 years ago but attached itself to me in 2007 after I moved into an old house and started experiencing paranormal things .

  40. Sky - October 1, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    A very good article. I, myself, became a Christian some years ago. But, for 8 years, I have been battling demons. No, they never get inside my spirit or soul but from outside. The first attack made me freeze and I didn’t know what to do at the time. I remember I was in bed. I hadn’t gone to sleep yet. I felt the mattress sagging at one corner and heard the creaking sound it made when pressure is applied. I saw nothing there. Then, my sheet and comforter was being slowly pulled from my body. Again, there was nothing there but I ‘felt’ it. Then, a heavy weight settled over my body. I felt large hands push at my inner thighs to open them. I struggled to keep them closed but I couldn’t. I felt it push into me and it was so cold; void. I thought it was trying to embed me into my mattress, it was so rough. I got up the next morning and could barely walk. My inner thighs hurt so badly.
    Then, I did research and found out about incubi. That freaked me out.
    As time went on, I learned to fight them off. I have spiritually trained myself to call out to God, even in sleep when I feel them try to touch me or grab me.
    The last attack was 2 months ago. I had surgery and was in the hospital. Naturally, I was on IV pain medication and it was easy to let my guard down completely.
    I remember waking up slightly and I started whimpering. There were 2 of them that time. One was at my feet; the other was trying to put its hand up my gown. I felt a coldness near my feet. These hands grabbed my ankles and yanked me, trying to drag me down. I remember very vividly raising my arms into the air and yelling, “Jesus!!”. Then, a warm golden glow was above my head. These strong, but soft and gentle hands grabbed my wrists and lifted me up. I felt like I weighed nothing. Then, the whole room was warm. The dark ones cowered down and then fled quickly.
    I knew what it meant in two ways. It was trying to drag me down spiritually. But, also trying to drag me away from God. We look up to God and down to demons. It was trying to pull me to their level and make me turn away from God.
    Also, I try to think of it in a positive way. It lets me know that all I have to do is call to Him and He will be there. And He is always there when I call to Him to make the demons flee. I trust Him to always be with me. Sometimes my faith goes a little stale and yet, He is still with me.
    I love having Him work through me, knowing His name is enough to make them run and hide.

    Blessed the Lord God Jehova, Alpha and Omega, Creator of Heaven and Earth!
    My story is a bit too much for some to hear as it is somewhat odd for to to share, but I will do so to bring Glory and Honor unto Jesus Christ of Nazareth who lives and sits on the right hand of God. I moved to an Asian country (lots of ancestral worship and pagan, demonic/spirit worship) w/spouse and children due to military service. Upon arrival within 2 months “it” began the supernatural attack of ALL attacks. I was sitting in a pew at church when I heard the Lord whisper get up and pray for “them,” a group of missionaries were heading to Thailand, the country of my birth and Mother. I did not know any of the people traveling nor did they know me, but knew unequivocally the still small voice of Lord Jehova. I went reluctantly up the aisle to stand with the group of 14-20 people and relayed to the military chaplains wife I was to pray for these servants of the Lord as God just instructed me to, she had an awful look on her face-turned and stated to her husband ( Chaplain) what I needed to do. I began to intercede as my gifting is intercessory prayer for the group and within 2-3 minutes of prayer I began to feel daggers (supernaturally ) and literally felt being attacked by spiritual weapons released toward me. These weapons being aimed at me, immediately the Holy spirit through my prayer stated “no weapons formed against me shall prosper, no gates of hell shall prevail against me.” From that point for about 6 months or so thereafter, I was involved with the BIGGEST warfare for my life-literally, depression, isolation, rejection, spirit of divination, self-loathing etc., was an all out war campaign to end my ministry and life of servitude. Where I live is such a small place, it seemed EVERYONE knew me or my story and I was not well received. One night a HUGE DEMONIC entity visited my bedside, stood there beside me as I slept. I was in midst of sleep and awakened-I would say Jesus is LORD and that thing would exhale with a bone chilling cold, not my room just my body, then I would battle again and say Jesus is LORD again and that thing was UPSET,as it breathed out even colder feeling within my BONES. I finally stated as I was upset because my children were in my bed ( spouse was on a mission away) I called out, “Jesus, Holy Spirit, Father God help me,” IMMEDIATELY from the corner of my room I heard wings flapping and rushed this entity as if a line backer rushed an opponent out of my room, down the hall way, out of my house. The beauty of this story is GOD, JESUS and HOLY SPIRIT was ready to save upon my call and was watching over me and waiting all along. The end of this story is that entire night I slept like a baby with NO FEAR what so ever! GOD
    thank you for your outstretched hand to save and your face that shines upon me. JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH IS LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS!

    Chris please pray for me and family..if possible please email me with any guidance or advice. I have 2 wonderful friends who are pastors who I request pray for me and family every so often, but being here it is a constant battle in this atmosphere due to cultural worship. But I am more than an overcomer and Victorious in Jesus Christ whom’s blood I plead upon me and my family. God Bless You!

    What does it mean when God lifts the veil and you see a demonic look on a Christians face…..its only for a breif moment, but its unmistakable. Its happened to me twice now, I myself am a Born Again Christian and before I was saved was into the occult so Im very aware of the Spiritual Realm and how real it is. I went through a lot of deliverance and learnt a lot about that even as Christians we can open the door to a demonic force, and that therefore gives them a legal right. Could this be the case in these two Christian peoples faces that I saw.

    Can you explain the theology behind the belief that a demon cannot enter a believer who has undergone a Holy Spirit baptism? If someone has demons before their baptism, are they delivered through their baptism? If not…what happens to those demons?

    The theology that the Holy Spirit inhabits your spirit after water baptism and enters your soul after the second baptism is new to me. I’d really like to hear more on that if you can expand.
    I was delivered from demons several years after I was baptized in the Holy Spirit. So my perspective is a little different, simply because of my personal experience. I do not have much experience with deliverance-only a handful of cases, including my own. Any more information you could provide about that would be awesome! Thanks!

  44. Tina - March 31, 2014 at 7:27 am

    Robin-

    When a person is saved the Holy Spirit enters into their spirit. This is where the Holy Spirit lives inside a person. If the person has demons before they are saved then once they are saved the demons are evicted out of the persons spirit. However, just because the person is now saved does not mean the demons are gone….sure some of them might still be present in the soul. A person is made up of there parts the spirit, the soul which is the mind, will, thoughts and emotions/feelings and then the physical body.

    A persons mind has to be renewed in the Word of God and by doing so the Lord will drive the demons out. A person has to be built up in the Word of God in order to overcome the demons in the soul if not they can if cast out come back even 7 times stronger. This is why sometimes people who get saved still have demonic strongholds of the mind which are demonic in origin. A person needs to know who they are meaning their Identity in Christ first then they need to know their Authority in Christ to overcome the enemy. Sometimes God will deliver instantly but often times healing and deliverance is progressive.

      I was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit 34 years ago. About six years ago I was under severe demonic attack. I felt a spirit on two different occasions go into my mouth. I started walking around like a big ape. I had hallucinations, couldn’t sleep, was fearful, had a force hold my arms down so hard while I was in bed and the next day I had bruises all over my arms. Three entities were at the end of my bed pulling the cover off of me and pulling me down off the bed. I rebuked them in Jesus’ name and they fled. It was sheer hell until I ended up in a psychiatric hospital suicidal & homicidal. I saw in the spirit a girl praying against me. I don’t know who this was or where it was. So, the idea that an evil spirit cannot enter a Holy Spirit filled Believer is false. It happened to me.
      It seems that deliverance ministers come up with some “10 step plan” of their own doing but it doesn’t seem completely rooted in scripture. By the way, I was seeing a married couple who were deliverance ministers before I ended up in the psychiatric hospital. They couldn’t understand the attack and told me to go to hospital because they couldn’t help me! So, deliverance is a grossly misunderstood subject!

    Thank you for this great page. Wow, some awesome things being shared here. Please pray for my spirit as I feel I’m being attacked extremely badly. I am currently really getting to have a great and awesome relationship with the GOD-Trinity, and I don’t think hell likes this at all.
    Thank you very much
    Many blessings to you and all the posters here.

    In the time when Jesus walked among us, casting out demons, except for an unknown small number of followers, there were no Christians yet. Jesus did in fact cast out demons or devils from what are considered today as those who had not yet been technically “saved”. Such as other Jews. The word Christian itself had not come into existence until years later. Jesus casted out demons from individuals who likely had never even heard of Jesus, and most certainly had not been baptised yet, if ever. Perhaps due to the power and authority held by Christ, he alone could do this, however, it is written his disciples were also charged with casting out demons and very likely doing so among people who wouldn’t have yet had the chance for conversation. Also I just wanted to point out that Exorcism had been practiced in Judaism long before the birth of Immanuel (God among us). Let us remember that Jesus and his disciples were in fact Jews, practicing Judaism. Now that being said, I myself being Christian, would never think of attempting to rebuke or cast out unclean spirits without the gospel armor and authority in Christ. I am merely pointing out a few inconsistencies in the above article and not the article as a whole.

    • William - April 2, 2016 at 6:22 pm

      The’disciples’ of Yeshua were mostly fishermen. They were not formally educated in any way, especially the Jewish laws,. Matthew might have been the only learned among them. When Christ was crucified, disillusioned, they all went back to what they knew;- fishing. Yet when the Holy Spirit fell on them at Pentecost, they received power to do what Yeshua commissioned them to do. Matt 28:20. Christians are not descendants or off springs of church going parents. All persons who have asked Yeshua Hamashiach to forgive and cleanse their sins and come into their lives, they became born again believers. These followers who exercise obedience to the word of God,have the power of the Holy Spirit on the inside of them to cast out demons. Theological schooling gives knowledge, but not the manifested power of the Holy Spirit.

    Dear Wondering Anonymous Apr 22

    Try and let it go, it does not belong to you. Whatever you went through in trust is what many have gone through. Forgive the offense, hand it over to God, for He knew you were able to endure it and gather your strength and with this you are to help others. You are longing for a closer relationship with God and you are already closer, He loves you very much and you now have a gift called discernment.

    Something very strong and evil is physically and meantally harming me , this is not a mental illness or a medical condition, something is inside me killing me slowly , I’ve contacted pastors ministries other Christians no amount of prayer or scripture helps , I am seeking help from an exorcist.

  50. Maggie Speight - July 13, 2016 at 9:42 am

    I have been attacked by the evil and or demons in the past. But not once had they been successful at it. I noticed that when I wasn’t saved I never felt any attacks from demons but ass soon as I gave myself to Christ, it’s when I started to feel the attacks. I had been held down by certain forces, not once but more like 3 times, like some invisible hands were holding me down, not able to move in complete paralysis and speechless. But as soon as I called out in Jesus name I had been realesed of the hold. I gave myself to Christ, body, soul and heart. No one and anything can cause me harm, for my God dwells within me and my heart is pure. I strongly believe without a doubt or question that my savior walks with me and protects me from the harms of the evil and or demons. God is my fortress, my rock, my all. Amen!

    Hello. I began studying spiritual warfare several years and I believe that God was preparing met had begun in my personal life with someone who I know had manifestations of jezebel spirit (Narcissism). I finally left this person when God gave me all the signs to leave this emotionally destructive relationship. I found your site through a link provided by a young, Christian woman who experienced this same relationship.

  52. Spirit Fire - December 6, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    I stopped reading when you wrote that a demon could enter into a “soul”. Demons can only touch the mind and the body, they cannot touch the soul because the soul is God’s direct housing, receptacle. Christ shed His blood and ransom that no demon can touch the Soul, it is completely off limits to demons. So what the demons do instead, is work their way into the mind, which in turn can reach the body.

    • Kyle - December 11, 2016 at 1:21 am

      AMEN!… scripture speaks about bondage, and chains, not anything about “entering into” the soul. As well folks misunderstand the meaning of what a yoke of evil is…they confuse it with a yolk. Unfortunately this author has been lead by the doctrine of man…

    • Dianeg - July 10, 2017 at 4:39 am

      the soul is the thoughts, emotions and free will. The holy Spirit dwells in the inner man, our Spirit.

  53. tom Hlav. - May 2, 2017 at 1:29 pm

    You must first ask G-d for this Gift to Cast out demons.In addition, You must also prepare and equip to battle. You must prepare the body to Fasting and praying. You must also test and try the spirits: is it a demonic, god’s angels and/or human Spirit. You need to ask the Spirit to CONFESS .That Messiah, Jesus (Yeshua) came to the earth in the flesh. G-d is spirit so you must worship & praise G-d in Spirit.Music (Praise & Worship) is a Spiritual weapon. Money for G-d’s Ministries is a Spiritual weapon. (you are to love G-d more than money). Prayer and Fasting is a Spiritual Weapon.Word of G-d is spiritual weapon.(Memorizing verses and to guote to the demons are a weapon). It does two things. I reminds G-d of His promise and it will strength your memorized of scriptures. Shalom… Peace be within you. May G-d shine His face upon you and smile at you.

    I get these episodes off and on where I am laying down all of a sudden I can’t move i try to yell for help but what comes out is like a low growl not even comprehendable. It seems to last a long time but not sure if it really does. I see shadowy things . Am I going crazy I know the lords prayer but when I try to speak it or say the lords name I am unable to completly in this state. I think of these times as spiritual warfare on me am I wrong? Plz someone help me maybe with an idea or ect. Ty and God bless

    • Janet - June 30, 2017 at 12:15 pm

      I don’t know if it is a spiritual attack or not but I can tell you that is very common. So common that there is a medical term for it. I cant think of exact name but you can google “sleep paralysis” and find information. I have experienced this before. The same thing happened to me. I tried to say the name of Jesus and couldn’t speak. It was like my mind was awake but my body was still asleep. It happened a few more times. It went away when I relaxed and said in my mind “Lord Jesus, I trust you no matter what happens to me physically. I am redeemed”. I was able to fall asleep within a few seconds. That was almost 15 years ago. Recently it happened once but it wasnt nearly as scary. I brushed it off and fell but asleep confident that it would pass. God is in control. Like I said, I don’t know if it is warfare or not but I won’t doubt it. I’ve noticed that a lot of believers have similar experiences to one another. The one reason that I believe it could be a spiritual attack is that following those incidents, I was attacked with doubt and fear. No matter what it is, you have to trust the Lord Jesus Christ. The enemy will attack your faith. I hope this has helped you in anyway.

    • Janet - July 1, 2017 at 8:25 am

      I wrote a comment yesterday but it hasn’t appeared yet. Another take is the the enemy can take a normal sleep disorder like sleep paralysis and use it to scare you. Like I said in previous comment, there were fifteen years in between sleep paralysis episode. All during times of stress. I even told my doctor and he said that he had them too. A majority of people will experience it in their lifetime. Basically, I want to give you a message of peace because God loves you. Don’t be scared by some of the things in this website. Yes spiritual warfare is real, sometimes the enemy takes things you read and hear and twists it around to scare you. The devil can even take scripture and twist it to scare you. If you are proned to anxiety he will use that too. The devil has robbed me of a lot of years of me not walking close to God because he had me believing that God did not love me or that I was going to hell. He uses the same tactic on everyone. May Christ fill you with His peace.

  56. Chris Morrison - September 9, 2017 at 4:32 am

    I have an issue that baffles me in my life. Anytime I am about to succeed in anything Wether business, finance or other success. It gets distabilized at the last moment. So I filled with disappointments and hurt. This has led me into a lot of debts. And I work really hard to raise funds to upset those debts. But each promising efforts gets terminated at the last minute and the circle continues and same as the pressure of repaying the debts . I believe there are demon attacking my finances and progress. What shall I do.?
