What Are the Signs of Demonization

Per all of the articles we have in our Spiritual Warfare section on how to deal directly with demonic spirits, the first thing you will need to do once God leads you to work with someone who may be demonized, is to make sure that it really is demons who are attacking this person and not something they are imagining or conjuring up.

If demons are attacking someone from the outside position and they are not actually in that person’s body, this is what you call basic demonic “oppression.” These types of cases are much more easier to deal with than an inside case. Just find out what their legal rights are, properly break them before the Lord like we have showed you how to do in our other articles, and then command the demons to leave the person in the name of Jesus.

However, when demons are literally living on the inside of someone’s body, this is what you call “demonization.” But again, the rules are the same. Find out what their legal rights are, properly break them before the Lord, and then proceed to cast them out in the name of Jesus.

However, these inside cases may be a bit tougher and there may be some additional things you may need to do, depending on how many legal rights the demons are operating on and how long they have been on the inside of that person in the first place.

In this article, I just want to concentrate on the very first thing you will need to do if you are working with someone who has demons living on the inside of them. And that very first thing is to determine if there really are demons living on the inside of them.

Here are some of the basic signs and manifestations you may come across when dealing with someone who has demons literally living and operating on the inside of them.

Since we cannot see demons with our natural eyes like we can see people and material objects in our natural realm, you will need some of these types of signs and manifestations as guideposts so you can determine whether or not you are dealing with a person who is really being demonized from the inside of them.

1. The Person Will Already Know They Have Demons on the Inside of Them

The first “sign,” the first “tell” you will have on these types of cases is that the person many of the times will already know that they have demons living on the inside of them. They will tell you they can sometimes hear voices on the inside of them and at times can actually feel or sense the demons moving “in and out” or “up and down” in them.

Many of these people may at first be very reluctant to admit this to anyone for fear that they will either be misunderstood or thought of as being crazy.

But by the time the Lord leads you to these types of cases, many of these people will be ready to work with you and they will be more than willing to tell you anything and everything on their story so you can properly work with them to get them completely delivered, as many of them have been bound up and under torment from these demons for quite a long period of time.

So the first thing you will need to do is to not turn these types of cases away when they do first come your way, as there is always the possibility that it is God Himself who is guiding this case your way so you can try and work with them to get them completely delivered from these demons.

Just listen very carefully to the person’s entire story and then be led by the Lord and His discernment on the case so you know whether or not you are dealing with the real thing.

One of the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit is the gift of discerning of spirits. And part of this gifting is where the Holy Spirit Himself will give you the supernatural ability to be able to see or sense if this person really does have demons operating on the inside of them.

2. Look For These Basic Demonic Manifestations

As you are listening to the person’s entire story and how they may have gotten these demons on the inside of them in the first place, look for some of these basic demonic manifestations in their story. And also do not be afraid to ask the person if they have ever had some of these basic manifestations occur with the demons.

Now here are some of the basic manifestations that demons will do with the people they are inhabiting.

One or two of these manifestations may not be able to stand by themselves, but when you get someone that has quite a few of these manifestations occurring on some type of regular basis, then the chances are very good that they really do have demons literally living on the inside of them.

  • Hearing voices on the inside talking to them. These voices may also refer to the host in the third person.
  • Feeling or sensing the demons moving on the inside of them. Feeling pressure and movement in the head and stomach areas. Demons can also attack the central nervous system so it feels like the person is going crazy at times.
  • Having bad and frequent nightmares, sometimes with the same bad and horrific nightmare being repeated over and over again.
  • May have seen some of the demons in an actual vision.
  • Can sometimes smell the demons, who have a very putrid and toxic smell to them. Demons can also smell like burning sulphur at times.
  • Will have strong, inner compulsions to do bad things that are not in their normal behavior patterns like having bad thoughts of suicide and murder. Can also have very strong addictions to things like drugs, alcohol, and pornography.
  • Abnormal fascination with the occult or any type of criminal activity.
  • Abnormally strong feelings of rage and hate in them that are not a part of their natural personality and makeup. Demons can also transmit heavy feelings of despair, hopelessness, depression, and that they have committed the unpardonable sin of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit.
  • Irrational fears, panic attacks, and phobias on some type of a regular basis.
  • Periods of having loss all sense of time from minutes to actual hours and can sometimes end up somewhere and not knowing how they got there. Also, regularly doing things for which they have no memory of actually doing.
  • At times, can sense an evil presence on them, in them, and in the houses they live in.
  • Will feel cold spots in certain areas of the houses they are living in with these cold spots not being by any open windows.
  • Will sometimes see dark shadows running across some of the rooms in their houses, especially in their bedrooms.
  • Can have poltergeist type phenomena occurring in their houses such as material objects flying across the room, doors opening up and slamming shut all by themselves, drawers opening up on their own, hearing footsteps shuffling across the floors and scratching type noises on the walls, along with the electricity going on and off and material objects actually disappearing.
  • In the more extreme cases, the person can literally find themselves levitating right off their bed at times.
  • May have the ability to speak in a foreign language of which they have no natural knowledge of.
  • Can be capable of great, abnormal, physical strength.
  • Can receive mild to strong trembling and shaking sensations on different parts of their bodies. Can also receive choking sensations and a tightness around their head and eye areas.
  • Abnormal amounts of dizziness, blackouts, and seizures.
  • Very heavy, uncontrollable twitching type activity on certain parts of their bodies like their face and their arms.
  • May have had some out-of-body experiences, especially in cases of sexual abuse and satanic ritual abuse.
  • Have a very hard time in praying and reading from their Bibles. Can also have an actual revulsion of the Bible to the point of wanting to try and tear it apart or burn it.
  • A compulsive desire to want to curse and blaspheme God and Jesus.
  • Can have multiple personalities in them which are known as alters.
  • May have tried other kinds of treatments and medications from other psychologists and psychiatrists with no real help or relief ever being given to them.
  • The demons can at times take control of the vocal cords and speak right out of the person’s mouth. When this occurs, the tone of the person’s voice could change, like a woman speaking out in a man’s deep, husky voice. Demons can also emit animal like sounds out of a person’s mouth and vocal cords like the hissing of a snake, the growling of a lion or tiger, or the emitting of a baying type howl like a wolf. They can also let out very loud screams and yells, especially when being directly confronted by the deliverance minister during the actual deliverance itself.
  • The demons can also manifest in the person’s eyes where you can see them literally looking at you. What you will see when this occurs is pure evil and pure hatred looking at you. You will also see this look from the demons being captured in some of the person’s past photographs, as some of these demons love to show themselves in the person’s eyes and countenance when photos are being taken of them. Another type of look you can see when the demons are looking out of someone’s eyes is what I call the “hollow look.” When you see this type of demonic look, it is like you are looking into someone who has no personality. They will look “soulless” and “lifeless” to you when you see this type of look coming out of their eyes, and you will also know that it is not the personality of the person you are looking at.
  • Different types of facial contortions which no longer look like the person, such as glazed eyes, blank stare type eyes, eyes rolling backwards where all you see are the whites of the eyes, and stretching the skin of the face into a contorted, hissing like expression.
  • Different types of bodily contortions like people slithering across the floor like snakes, getting on all fours and barking like dogs, growling like lions, or howling like wolves. Abnormally stretching out their spines, fingers and hands locking up and going rigid, and demons grabbing a hold of a person’s throat in order to try and stop them from talking with you. The demons can also whip the head in a very rapid side-to-side type movement, stretch the neck out as far as it will go, along with jolting portions of the body causing those portions to move in a very rapid side-to-side type movement.

If the person has had any of this type of activity in their background, or if any kind of this activity surfaces or manifests while you are talking or praying with the person, then there is a very good chance that you are truly dealing with a person who has demons living on the inside of them and they will now need a full scale deliverance from the Lord.


With many of the churches still not doing enough in-depth teaching on this subject matter, you still have some people sitting in many of the churches across the world who are being demonized like this on the inside and they feel totally hopeless, helpless, isolated, and alone.

They feel that if they try and speak out on their conditions, that people will either not believe them, or if they did, they would think they are evil or that there is something mentally wrong with them. They also do not want to deal with the possible stigma of having demons attached to them.

As a result, they slip underneath the radar screen in most of the churches they belong to and no one, including most of their close friends and family members, even knows they have demons living on the inside of them.

Sadly, most of these people go on for the rest of their earthly lives and never get set free from their demons. This is why every single church should have some type of basic teaching system in place on this part of our walk with the Lord so people like this will not be afraid to try and reach out for help.

This little website alone has stirred up some of these hornet’s nests, with people coming to us with demons being attached to them, but with them being too afraid to go to their own pastors for fear of either ridicule or disbelief because this subject matter is never talked about or taught on in the churches they have been raised up in.

Once you start talking about these kinds of issues, and give people some basic working knowledge to fully understand it, then they will be willing to come out of hiding and seek help because they will then feel that someone will understand what they have been going through.

But if you never talk about it, then they will assume that you are either not interested in it, you don’t believe in it, or you are too afraid to deal directly with it yourself. As a result, most of these people will never get delivered, and they will then have to battle this inner torment for the rest of their earthly lives.

1.  To any of you out there who feel like you do have demons attached to you, but have never sought out help for some of the above reasons, it would be our strong recommendation that you read our article, “Looking for a Deliverance Minister,” and then follow the logical and straight forward steps that are in there to try and find a good deliverance minister in your area who can work directly with you to get you set free.

As we have said in that article, God is raising up more of His people to be able to do deliverances, and there is a very good chance you can find someone in your area who will be able to deliver you if you will just put for forth the time and effort to try and find this person if you are not confident enough to try and do a self-deliverance on your own.

Ask God to guide you to this person and where they are located at, and the Holy Spirit will then move to guide your steps so you can find the right minister who will then be able to set you completely free from these demons.

2.  If by chance you know someone who does have demons attached to them, but they have never sought out help for some of the above reasons, do not be afraid to approach this person and offer them your time, help, and assistance to try and find a minister who will be able to set them completely free if you do not feel comfortable in trying to do this yourself.

Again, go to our article, “Looking for a Deliverance Minister,” and follow the straight forward steps that are in there and God will then move to take up your case and use you to help get this person delivered if they are too bound up or too afraid to try and do this on their own.

We have a testimony of that actually occurring in this article. A woman’s roommate was being seriously demonized on the inside of her as a result of her engaging in white occult magic. She then decided to take on her case and got her roommate fully delivered from the demons by seeking after the right deliverance minister who could get the job done for her.

She had to go to three different pastors, but the third pastor she found was able to get her roommate fully delivered from her demons. And all of this all got accomplished because she just took the time to do this for her roommate, since her roommate was too afraid and too bound up to try and do it for herself.

I have seen God move time and time again on these types of cases if people would just step out of their safe boats and take on these kinds of deliverance assignments from time to time.

As we have said in our article, “The Great Commission – Save, Heal, Deliver and Disciple,” one of the main ministries Jesus is calling all of us to do for Him is to get people delivered from demons when we do come across these types of cases. You can either learn how to do it for yourself, or you can help guide these people to the ones who will know how to do it for them if you are to afraid to try and learn it on your own.

But either way, we should not be having people with demons tearing them up on the inside sitting in our churches when this type of subject matter could be easily taught on in every single church – especially with Jesus Christ Himself telling us to include the deliverance ministry as part of the Great Commission that He has asked all of us to do for Him.

We hope this article will help educate and enlighten some of you on some of the basic demonic manifestations people will experience when demons are actually attached to them, especially with demons who are living on the inside of them.

  1. Thanks be to God that i have got access to this website. In the course of sleeping time sometimes i could end up screaming loud and my wife could reveal to me about the shouts as if someone was breaking into the house. Is this a manifestation of demons?

  2. To self deliver in the case of trauma one may want to purposely feel the hellish feeling underlying their misery and depression. When they do they may begin to growl or roar loudly in an all out rage. Keep doing this until all of the angst has been flushed out of your system. If noise is a problem then get a down pillow and shove your face in it when you growl/scream. This is a way to self-deliver and heal PTSD (which can leave an opening). You may begin to shake as well, this is the release of fight/flight energy build-up, just let it happen.

    If you hadn’t sensed God before, you will with Him, he will help you…He’s awesome. If you reenact and move backwards, don’t blame yourself, brush yourself off and just continue moving forward.


  3. First, let me start be thanking the one responsible for this article, as I think I may need some guidance.

    I was baptized in 2010, but in 2014, I stopped reading the Bible due to a severe headache whenever I read it. The words sometimes blur, and I often lose my place. As of Oct. 11th, 2016, I still receive major headaches from the Bible. I’ve been to the doctor for excessive dizziness and nausea, yet they couldn’t find a definite reason for my illness. I get cold suddenly at times, and my arms sometimes fidget. I don’t smell sulfur but I do smell lavender from time to time. And the last symptom I have is that when I’m in church I feel very uncomfortable.
    Any idea or advice on what I should do?

    By the way, I contacted a pastor once, but I never received a response.

    Thank you,


    • I suggest to check your heart, unforgiveness, bitterness, envy, ought etc. give open door for the demons to come in. Humble yourself, confess your sins & plead for Jesus’s blood, fully surrender, ask the Holy Ghost infilling.

  4. I think I may have possessed or oppressed by demons. About a month ago, I was wondering if demons were actually real, after I had just read a chapter of a supernatural book. I was thinking about it for a few minutes, before I decided to get to bed, at the time it was around 12:30 pm. After I laid down and shut my eyes, I got a sharp pain in my head which turned into a headache, I heard ringing in my ears, felt a huge weight pushing me into my bed and and bringing me up again (I still felt the weight then) my body was moving up and down, I saw a skeletal face surrounded by darkness with my eyes closed, and when I started feeling real scared I tried to open my eyes, but they felt like they were glued shut and I couldn’t open them, and for some reason they also felt really heavy. I stopped trying to open my eyes because I knew it wouldn’t really work. About a minute later I felt completely normal, could open my eyes, yet I still felt so much fear about what happened a second prior. I’ve also had a nightmare like this before, except I could also hear loud drums as well, it was about 3 months prior. And not too long ago today I saw what seemed like a shadow out of the corner of my eye, near my window and mirror in the corner of my room, when nothing could have made it. The past week or so as well, I feel so groggy and drained as soon as I open my eyes so I go back to bed, and sometimes, I’ll sleep for 15 hours straight. Recently about 2 weeks ago, I went to my basement to the freezer down there, was looking for food, forgot what I was doing then went back up stairs, not even remember if I closed the door to the freezer, I felt like I had completely blacked out then. I had to go back downstairs to make sure I actually closed the door. And after writing this for the first time, then deleting it all, and while reading the comments my door to my closet creaked and I thought I sensed something there. At times, I really do feel like I’m going crazy as I get really on edge and hypersensitive to everything around me, I also feel really paranoid. At other times, some parts of my body will feel like they’re throbbing, I can feel my pulse in the most random of places, for example the side of my cheek and forehead, or even my calf. I feel like I should also mention, I’m growing up in a Catholic family, but personally, I don’t believe in god and I believe myself to be depressed, or at least I did before, because I’m usually contemplating suicide. I have no motivation whatsoever usually, always feel tired and sometimes lightheaded, as if I’m going to pass out. And lately whenever my uncle who is 6 years older than me is verbally bullying me, when I could handle it before, lately I feel like punching him and get really mad when he bad mouths me, I try to ignore him and walk away from him by then though, usually works but sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve had panic attacks before as well, although I believe that to be from social anxiety and my sensitivity to pain. Sometimes I also twitch on certain parts of my body, like my face and can’t control it. My eyes also do this weird thing where they feel strange and I can hear a noise come from them, it’s almost like they were being strained. Right now, I’m 13 turning 14 in a couple of months. So yeah, this is why I think I’m being possessed or oppressed, if anyone has an explanation for this or thoughts, please share them with me because I don’t know what to do anymore.

  5. Hello Mr.Tippett. It is a blessing to hear your insight in regard to demons. I used to attend numerous apostolic churches that didn’t believe an individual could become demon possessed if they had received the gift of the holy ghost. I have questioned that numerous times over the years and unfortunately stayed bound by demons. I have had numerous prophetic words spoken over me that I am called of God and I have had some powerful services I have been a part of but unfortunately the demon or demons of fear remains. When I look at individuals in there eyes for whatever reason my eyes start twitching and they well up with fear. It is so embarrassing to experience this over and over and im certain people have thought I was insane over the years. The spirit of fear has robbed me of normalcy and I wish I could have been delivered years ago. Please pray for me or anyone that reads this that the Lord would direct me to an individual or a church that would pray these demons out of me. I am a 37 year old single dad trying to raise my 9 year old daughter by myself and fear has destroyed my life up to this point. I want to be bold and do what the Lord wants me to do for him and be the dad my daughter deserves instead of having such a fearful and rebellious spirit. Thank You.

    • Dearly beloved: when I took some time to read your precious, experience in the Lord ; I began to understand your problem ! Your problem is a lack of understanding concerning your gift of discernment. Proverbs 11:1 Reveals the root cause for spiritual warfare ( false perception, will authorize demonic interventions. Proverbs 11:1 A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is His delight. Beloved the word of God degrees, and declares in the book of Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Never lean on your own understanding in all you ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your path Proverbs 3:6.

  6. Hi Gordon,

    I am so grateful for the teaching and testimonies on this site. I want to understand this page. Is it possible for a born again, baptised by water and the Holy Spirit, daily Bible reading, prayerful, spirit-led follower of Jesus with the gifts of the Holy Spirit be able to see, hear and feel demons like in some of the ways describe above due to the nature of their calling in His ministry?

  7. Hi Gordon

    It is such a blessing to have found your site. For many years, although being a Christian all my life, and attending a charismatic church here in South Africa, I always felt that discussing the spiritual realm, and what I used to call “spiritual attacks” was seen as taboo. I used to feel and see demons, around my house, and especially in my room at night.

    Only recently, have I gained understanding and wisdom to deal with demons. Through your site, and much prayer, and spending time reading the bible, I finally feel like I can grow in this area. I have always felt God wanted me to work in this area, and these experiences were almost training for me.

    Years ago, I did backslide for about decade, and after reading some of these articles, I was worried because I have never had a deliverance. However, the Holy Spirit keeps showing me the day I returned home, as a prodigal daughter, and I believe the Lord delivered me the day I recommitted myself to Him. I don’t have any of the “symptoms” I used to have anymore. I see you mentioned that God himself is doing deliverances to speed things up as we are approaching end times, and I believe that is what He did with me.

    At times, the Holy Spirit will reveal a demonic presence, either in my home, or someone elses, and I can feel His anointing come upon me, and I am able to confidently and easily drive them off. The more you read the Word, the more the Holy Spirit will give you wisdom and understanding, the more confident you can become in facing demons. I used to quietly and fearfully pray when I faced them, now I boldly command them to leave in Jesus Name. I do appreciate your prayer suggestions on “Pleading the Blood for Protection”, and have started doing this. Since, I have not felt any demonic presence in or near my home.

    I do believe that God wants more people to work in the deliverance ministry, and I believe that is where He is leading me. I don’t know where to start, or what to do, but I will keep praying, and know the Lord will reveal the path he wants me to take.

    BTW, in reference to your article “Battle Angels” – I too have seen them with my own eyes. I was young, maybe 5 or 6 years old (at the age, I didn’t have any idea what angels looked like, or what the bible said about them). My parents had put me to bed, and I decided to look out the window, to see if watch the sunset. As I looked out my window, standing just there as clear as day, were two very large angels – they must have been over 7ft tall (way taller than my father). They wore white clothes, and each had a sword. It looked as if they were glowing. They said nothing, but simply waved, and I waved back. I remember feeling such a peace, and calm, as if I was completely safe. My sister and I shared a room at that stage, and I believe those angels were there for us both – I have no idea why, but obviously we needed guarding from something that night. Only years later, after reading about angels in the bible, did I realise that was what I had seen. I will never forget that as long as I live – the memory is as vivid as it was that night, and I am now 36 years old!

  8. I have had the experience several times of being paralyzed in my bed and trying to scream out the name of Jesus and could not talk. My grandmothers voice screamed my name in my ear and my face contorted as though I was having a stroke. Nightmare after nightmare makes me afraid to sleep and I wake up not knowing where I am. I have to look around and realize I am in my room. I have been a Christian for many years, am baptized in the Holy Spirit, I never got baptized. So much time has passed in my Assemblies of God church I am embarrassed. I know my past life of drug addiction may be the cause, and when I cast demons out my body physically feels them leave. I don’t live a perfect life, but how do I close the door? I even have a ministry for impoverished children. My friends say the enemy is attacking me because I am close to my breakthrough. But the experience last night has me exhausted.

    • Laurie, I have had the same thing happen to me at least 50 times. I was afraid to sleep because I lived alone. I would be paralyzed and have a demonic nightmare. I couldn’t speak to say the name of Jesus. What helped was to say before I felt it coming on was, “You are not allowed to touch me in Jesus’s name.” I think it was a spirit of fear. It stopped when I got married and no longer slept alone.

  9. Dear Sir,
    This is my first time writing to you. It’s been 2 years since I was delivered ,and 1 year since I seriously started to walk with the Lord. During this first year everything I have received was a miracle and gift from the Father. And many many persecutions and trials by fire. I try my best with the guidance and help of the Holy Spirit of God each day to remain in the Fathers truth and commandments. I am constantly attacked by my own loved ones. One minute they are nice the next it’s getting worse. I pray and fast try my best each day to pick up my cross and walk with the Lord. Now things are sooo bad, I do have faith in the Lord…… It’s just that I would like to know what’s happening. Everytime I go thru this I Lord makes me grow in my knowledge of him and my walk with him……….. But this time things seem dark. I will never lose faith in the Lord , why is this happening to me, especially from my own loved ones…….

  10. Dear Brii:
    The pastor does not have to hit you on the forehead. I have had pastor’s try to push me down to say that I got slain in the Spirit by his ministry. I don’t know why some pastors do things that they do. The name of Jesus is sufficient to get a demon to speak. But they can resist and hold out for a time. The pastor has to be persistent and not give up too easily.
    The Lord has shown T.B. Joshua that the deliverer (we know that Jesus is the actual deliverer) can set the demons’ house on fire by calling the fire of God/Holy Spirit/Heaven to fill the pserson’s body. The demons are then tortured by the heat of God’s fire. It is also a good test to see if there are demons.
    Watch Emmanuel TV to see healings and deliverances.

  11. Tonight a pastor prayed for me and while he was praying he kept on hitting me in my forehead and he kept on asking me who was i (he was talking to me). I know for a fact that he was trying to identify a demon but I’ve never known myself to being “possessed”. I’ve never experienced any of the signs you’ve listed above. My mom is a prayer intercessor so she’s very familiar with when a spirit manifesting and she said it didn’t sound like I was. I personally believe that he didn’t try to identify whether I was possessed or opressesed.. I guess my question is why was he hitting me on my forehead and asking me who I was…. Btw throughout the whole thing I was very aware of what was going on….please help

  12. Dear April:
    Of course, there are physical and chemical causes to headaches and stomach problems but when it is purely biological we don’t feel spooky, mysterious, or that some other thing is in us making us feel bad. We just take a pain killer or laxative (best not chemical) and cure the problem.
    But if you are feeling like there is something else in you causing fear, spookiness, mystery and playing tricks on you like nightmares, and voices in your head especially ones that argue with you then these are signs of demonic activity.
    You need someone who does thotoughdeliverance not just kick one out and think the job is done.
    There are spitits that seem to be universal and try to destroy us by false guilt, condemation, and generally run us down with fatigue.
    These spirits are: abandonment, insecurity, intimidation, harassment, condemnation, fear, anxiety, worry.
    In my case, i had a dramatic deliverance but I had to do self-deliverance afterwards. And then the kingpin spirit, Jinx, blinded me for years and the Lord gave a prophetess a dream about me to cause her to help and we found Jinx. I kicked him out myself.
    But when you are young in your faith and inexperienced youshould seek help from someone experienced in deliverance.

  13. I am not sure if I have a demonic spirit in me or not I know two weeks ago I went to a meeting were I believe I was delivered from a spirit of fear. The pastor looked into my eyes during offering on the way back to my seat and I never pay attention but I never look in people’s eyes for more than a sec or two but he locked eyes with me and I felt a deep rage rise up in me and I wanted to scream out loud. I got prayed for and felt some kind of release. The deep rooted fear is gone but im still having some trouble my mind is racing all the time I find it hard to pray at times and two nights ago I was attacked in a dream that made me sick to my Stomach. I have a past of drug addiction and I know that opens doors how do I know when im free?

  14. Dear Iazana:
    From what you described I would confidently say that yes your cousin is demonized. The demons hate what they’re hearing in the prayers, and reacting. You are not imagining things to sense their presence.
    Has your cousin at any time played around with occult things like ouji boards, tarot cards, amulets, told ghosts stories? Although I have not heard of prople being demonized by ghost stories but a fellow did testify getting a demon while readin or watching someone else’s episode with spirits.
    Has your cousin ever visited a soothsayer, psychic, witch, clarvoyance, or took part in a seance? Even if her attitude was, “Oh, we were just fooling around and didn’t take it seriously,” she would be entering the devil’s territory and leaving herself open for attack.
    But what you described is pretty heavy duty symptoms so I have to ask is your cousin secretly a witch or has been subject to some witches’ rituals?
    I knew of a person who use to be a witch who could not stand to be in a Christian meeting and had to leave.
    Your cousin needs help by someone experienced in deliverance.

  15. I have a cousin who, during prayer her eyes become red and they roll, her face twitches. She always tries to control it. She likes to stare at me at times and when she does its like something else is looking at me. She gets head aches, always looking sad or perhaps tired. She is not free during prayer I do not like being around her because her presence is uncomfortable. Even when she is being nice. She is 14 years old born again since she was 8. She used to be full of life nothing could stand in her way and Jesus. Sometimes she looks okay sometimes not. Could she also be demonized?

  16. Dear Emma:
    PRAISE THE LORD. Before demons had to driven out either by a counsellor or by self-deliverance. Your testimony tells me that the Lord has made a change since we are approaching His Second Advent and doing deliverances from Heaven. I read a testimony of of a Christian who said that the Lord told him he had demons. The Lord did not do that with me for many years until in 2004 a lady prophetess called me and said that she had a dream of me running and a demon was flapping in my wind off each wrist and ankle. Later He gave her the names. But the kingpin demon I had to fiscover on my own. Jesus is doing more hands on work to speed up the day that His church will be without spot or wrinkle.
    Look up Rev. Susan O’Marra. She is a prophetess from Rochester, New York.

  17. Greeting Gordon,
    I’m so happy to have run into this site, It’s truly a blessing.This is my testimony. On January 8,2014 the Lord spoke into my spirits in a still small voice he said, a egg has hatch. At the time I couldn’t understand what God had in store for me. On January 13,2014 I started to feel deliverance from demonic spirits. But it didn’t stop there! the lord spoke again and said, there’s still 6eggs left that needs to hatch. God is my Refuge and strength, my present help in time of need. Let me just elaborate on my experience. From the deeps of my belly through my throat and out my mouth came a goshen winds as my body release them, my tongue wiggle and a shriek sound came out with a jerk of the body. Till is very day I am still being deliver from evil spirits. The Lord said it would take 90 day deliverance b/c of past sin. I believe that when we come to the Lord and we are not totally surrender to Christ, we are heading for big trouble. In Matthew12:43 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through dry places looking for to rest. But doesn’t find none, he saith, I will return unto my house from which I came out…in this case it was my house that I neglected. I pray that all those that comes across my experience will give there hearts in total surrender to a loving father that cares. I ask kindly for your prayer and would like to here from you. Thank you.

  18. Dear Marc:
    The demons can and do cause headaches but so does dehydration and stress.
    Please seek out preferably a charismatic pastor to help you get delivered. Demons love talk and discussions because they are not directly confronted and kicked out. Generally, the conservative evangelicals and Assemblies of God believe a Christiand cannot have an evil spirit. Some
    AOG know the truth.
    Ask Elijah House on the web if there is one of their ministers who live near you. There may be other ministries on the web who has someone near you who can help you.

  19. Dear Gordon

    Thanks for your reply.. I am going to leave a list here because i did not mention everything.. If people knew everything around me they would say i was crazy and needed to be evaluated.. I went over the voices, and these voices was not like it was inside my head it was a voice that called my name like somebody that i heard with my ears and found out no one had actually called me… When i was a child this started to happen and i am 42 now.. There was something else that happen one night at my grandmothers and that was believe it or not the bed had started shaking and the dog in the house started barking and then it stopped.. My grandmother also in the bed i asked her i said did you feel that and she calmly said it was the dog under the bed, and i thought later that did not make sense because this was a small dog and would not be able to shake the bed like that and then bark and it stop.. Sometimes i feel like i cant think clearly like my head is in a fog or something and have lost track of time and scared my own self wondering how i got from point A to point B… Sometimes in a room before i would feel like someone entered the room and i would turn around to find no one there.. I have had a lot happen over all these years and would just blow it off, but now after coming to the lord things are different and i recognize a lot of things that has happen to me and around me.. There is also a lot of anger, hate and rage at times.. Some of my family at one time mention to me they thought i might be bipolar but i didnt think anything of it when they said that years ago..Let me ask you something else can these bad spirits cause headaches a lot and feel like your shoulders and neck are sore and hurt like a heavy weight on you?

    Thanks for your time gordon and replies.

    • Marc you have already gotten some important spiritual advice. I wonder, have you seen a neurologist? It’s possible to have small seizures which aren’t noticeable but can also have symptoms you describe.

  20. Dear Marc:
    You have classic signs of a demonized person. However, because you are a Christian you also have the Holy Spirit bonded to your spirit and the Lord’s love and protection. The demon(s) are the source of the evil and not your mind so do not feel condemned or guilty. Romans 8:1,2. It would be good to read all of Romans 8.
    Don’t let a person tell you the heresy that a Christian cannot have an evil spirit. In 1 Kings 21 when Manasseh put the idols in the outer courts of Solomon’s temple, it is a parable of the Christian, the NT temple, having demons living in his/her outer court, the flesh. The soul represented by the Holy Place of the OT temple separates the spirit from the flesh. The Holy Spirit is with your spirit separated from your flesh where the demons are. Seek out a Pentecostal pastor or charismatic pastor ie. Vineyard to get a deliverance. You can do self-deliverance bu tI believe because you are so young in the Lord you will need help and teaching to maintain your freedom. Stay from the internet. The devil owns it.

  21. I want to get peoples opinion and see if they think i may have a bad spirit, which i am feeling lately i may have.. I have read some of the symptoms on here and some do agree with what has happen to me through my life and even now.. I came to the lord Jesus christ only 3 months ago, and since then i have had horrendous unimaginable thoughts.. I try reading the bible a lot and have to stop because bad things start coming in my head.. I cry a lot and ask forgivness always, and have felt so helpless.. Sometimes i have thought have i commited the unforgivable sin.. In my past yes i have heard voices.. Sometimes many years ago i would think my grandmother or someone was calling me only to find out they didnt.. Also there have been times in past it smelled like something electrical was burning and could not find out where it was coming from, and yes there have been times it was like i felt a presence and it was not a good feeling.. There was one time a few days ago i will never forget.. It was a feeling of peace and love inside my heart and it was like i could see clearly and seen things differently.. It was great and then just the next day things started changing bad again and that good feeling i had was gone.. Sometimes i think i am crazy myself LOL

  22. In order to counsel a person to determine door opening sins and legal rights the person has to be willing, have some knowledge of his/her problem, and want deliverance. That requires teaching to a teachable spirit. But the person has evil spirits. The person’s unwillingness may not be the person’s but the evil spirt’s. i tried teaching in an open class and the demonized person got upset and the pastor kicked me out o fthe class. Of course, it was the demons that were upset and the pastor doesn’t believe a Christian can have an evil spirit. So what was the solution. Jesus had assigned the person to me for deliverance. But the demons didn’t want deliverance. Solution: Set the demons’ house on fire with the fire of the Holy Spirit and they want out fast in torment. Watch Synagogue Church Of All Nations. That is what the Lord led me to do to set the person free. No counseling, no permission needed. Of course, the person is a Christian and has protection so they won’t return. Currie Blake says that when he is ministering to thousands of Hindi’s he doesn’t have time to find out their generational curses. If we get specific with the devil, he’ll bog us down with specifics. The demons’ favorite delay strategy is talk.

    • That’s exactly right. The demons favorite thing is delay. I have a lady telling me, we must first take down the ‘pillars’, then take authority over the strongman. Even though I told her Jesus said in the Word, we must first bind the strongman. Jesus said, how can you go in and plunder a man’s house unless you first bind the strongman. I really need someone else to help me. She calls once a week to ‘talk to me & I quote prayers with her & renounce things my parents said & did to me’. She doesn’t want me to talk to anyone about the fact I’m seeking deliverance & I am having a hard time trusting her.

      • Shelby,
        When starting deliverance you stand in the gap for your generational bloodlines. You confess the sins of your forefathers as well as your own. (Lev 26:39-42).
        They are generally broken down into categories (idolatry, rebellion, fears etc.) You renounce the sins, ask the Lord for forgiveness and break the curses. Asking the Lord to cleanse the bloodlines. And there are prayers that are done at times depending on the type of session and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
        Once you have confess, renounced, received forgiveness, the legal ground for the demons are broken. And the demons must go when to to go.(Col 2:15) Please keep in mind that once you confess, you have broken agreement with the demons, and agreeing with the Lord.
        Also, when renouncing the sins of our ancestors,(parents) they are still held accountable by the Lord for their actions. When we stand in the gap, it cleanses our bloodline from us on down.
        You can not be held accountable for what your parents said and did to you. However, you must forgive them for what they’ve done. What a lot of people may not realize is that there are wounds that also need healed after deliverence is done. By not letting/allowing the Lord to heal those wounds, it is an open door for the enemy to return (Matt 12:43-45).
        I would say, if you are not comfortable, with whom is doing the deliverance, find someone you are comfortable with. And never, NEVER, be silent on what the Lord is doing or has done for you!
        Hope this helps.

    • Thanks! I want to learn to do deliverance and your testimony was very helpful!

  23. Great article. Very educational. I doubt someone who who had actually committed the unforgivable sin would not be attacked by satan nor would he be making them feel guilty or thinking that they might have. And they would most likely not be worried about having committed it.
    Well written and concise information.

  24. I know all those signs. and they seem to work together. even sinning against the
    holy spirit.
    It is the solution that i dont think anyone cleary has.For starters Jesus may be
    part of the problem. May be psychiatry is what can really work. Although it can take
    too long.

    • How would Jesus be part of the problem? Jesus is the only one the demons are afraid of and always obey.

  25. I saw a lady’s face have a grey mask with black holes the size of an American quarter and an elongated black mouth. Her face could not be seen. Is this a common demonic manifestation?
