Truth about Demons
Deliverance and Questions about Demons
What is Deliverance? To be set free from bondage. Free in spirit, soul and body. Deliverance is only possible through the cleansing blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Can a person have a demon? Yes! Otherwise, it would be pointless to cast out demons. When a person gets saved that is the legal spiritual right to then get free from all demons and darkness. if all we had to do was get people saved so that their demons go away, then what is the point in casting them out? If all Christians were completely free they would be living a life of victory.
Can a demon possess (as in 'own') somebody? No! In Ezekiel 18:4, God says clearly, "Behold, all souls are mine..."
What does it mean to be possessed with a devil? This is confusing, but you must understand ownership and control are two different things. You can be vexed or tormented by a demon but that doesn’t mean demons own you. It also does not mean you are mentally insane or crazy. You can be completely sane and yet have a spirit of infirmity like the woman in Luke 13. Demons have the ability to attach themselves to us and we must take authority over them through the blood of Jesus. The Spiritual world is VERY REAL!
Is demon possession rare? Not according to scripture! Mark 1:34, "...cast out many devils..." Luke 4:41, "...devils also came out of many..." Acts 8:7, "For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them..." Mark 6:13, "...they cast out many devils..." Matthew 8:16, "...they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils..."
Who can cast out demons? Anybody who is a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ. In Mark 16:15,17, we are told that those who believe will be casting out demons. All Christians have the authority necessary to drive out demons!
What are the symptoms of having a demon? There are many physical, emotional and mental symptoms that we may experience as a result of having a demon. Ongoing bondages to fear, depression, rejection, drugs and so forth are usually good indicators. Not being able to overcome in a certain areas of your life, living in a vicious cycle of defeat. Many physical infirmities such as cancer or arthritis are also things to look for.
Freedom is a Choice
May you choose to be free through the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ
