Personal jabs are wrong. And judging them opens the door for me to be judged also. I refuse to knowingly be a stumbling block to others. Some of the things said by Christians are spiritual attacks. Lord please don't let me be used to harm another's spiritual growth! In Jesus Name!

At most severe, I just state that I don't agree with them on it, state what I do believe, then let the Holy Spirit do the rest.
---PrincessTookie on 2/18/08

This is a touchy subject for me. I was told by a preacher's wife "study just the Bible". I believe personal experience of others can help us also! I have a relationship with God & I know His voice. Who are we to tell others they can't hear God unless it is in the written Bible? Judge NOT lest ye be judged.

Eloy, you should know all about the Highway to Hell.

Certain people I refuse to consort with, because they do not have a sincere word in their mouths. They just speak trash.
---frances on 2/18/08

I think idol worship, as done in the RCC church, produces many demons. These completely take over the Catholic, without them realizing it. They may be sincere good people, but the demons are a spiritual result of their determined disobedience and stubborn refusal to reach for the Word of God and the Covenants he made, first in the O.T. and then in the N.T. One does not extinguish the other, or we would not be given BIBLES just New Testaments.
---frances on 2/18/08

Crystalclear: Demons are not like vampires. Garlic doesn't work on demons like it does vampires. To fight demons all you need is Jesus Christ. And you don't have to wear him around your neck or hide him in your pocket. Fasting and praying works hand in hand. Some demons won't leave unless a person fasts and prays.
---Rebecca_D on 2/18/08


How could you say such a thing? I am your most arduant supporter, and consider you my online mentor. I could never reach the outerlands of spriitual reality without your ranblings as my guide. And Eloy, what I meant was that you are a lot pretentious, not a little.
---CRYSTALclear on 2/18/08


And that one other would be yourself, no doubt.
---CRYSTALclear on 2/18/08

Absolutley!!!!!! If anyone wants proof, let me know.
---Gary on 2/18/08

crystalClear, Ok. You know the words of God in the Holy Bible has changed many lives for the better, and indeed has saved many souls. Let me encourage you to read the New Testament a little bit every day, and you will be blessed.
---Eloy on 2/17/08

The fact that Eloy takes Crystal Clear seriously ought to be a 'Heads Up' to anyone. Crystal Clear is the most disingenuous person, apart from perhaps one other, on this forum.

There are some operating with familiar spirits that do call themselves Christians.
---Bob on 2/17/08


I am very very sorry. I apologize for saying I thought you were a little pretentious.
---CRYSTALclear on 2/17/08

.crystalClear, my way is Christ's way, and yes it is the only absolute way, and there is no other way. It is the only strait and narrow way. If you want to believe that this only way is the highway to hell, then that is your delusion, for the truth is there is only one right way, and all other ways are not it.
---Eloy on 2/17/08

.crystalClear, you will say and believe whatever you desire.
---Eloy on 2/17/08

Reg, you do not have demons, they are pin-worms. That is all. And there is a cure for that. Don't give the devil more credit then he deserves. Crystalclear, what you are doing is not biblical. Now if what you do makes you feel better, then do it. But it would be best in the long run to trust that the Lord will not leave you to defend yourself. He is alway with you yet many times He allows things to happen to us for a reason that only He knows will be good for us at a later time.

Seems to me you're being a little pretentious. Certainly the Bible is a wonderful source, but you are not its only interpeter. And God speaks to me directly in many ways,and I'm not about to ignore that. Your way is not the only way, and please don't tell us that your way is God's way, or else we're on the highway to Hell. don't be so pompous as to say you've got the only roadmap.
---CRYSTALclear on 2/16/08

.crystalClear, you say what you do, and I have said what the Holy Bible says to do, these are not the same thing. What you are doing is not Biblical. As far as me telling you what to do, I tell every person what the Bible says to do, and it is up to every person whether they want to obey or not. That is your free choice, but I will always and at all times tell all people what they should do against the enemy and to be victorious in this life.
---Eloy on 2/16/08


Who are you to tell me how to deal with demons? I do what I do because it works. And I've been doing it for yeaars. Yes, I certainly do pray. But I've got no "elders" here I trust, and I never let anyone but my dear departed husband touch me. That suggestion is rude. Fasting make me dizzy and have strange thoughts.

But I do pray and God sometimes lets me see demons. So I can see the garlic and salt working. So don't tell me how to protect myself. I am doing fine thank you.
---CRYSTALclear on 2/15/08

If one has lying spirits residing in their house, their body, that person does not have the Holy Spirit.
A house divided against itself cannot stand.
You cannot serve two masters.

If lying spirits are residing in a body, counterfeit fruits will be found - idolatry, witchcraft, lust, hypocrisy, pride, jealousy, haughty, so on.

Christians demon possessed, the demon possessed will tell you yes.
God says a house divided against itself cannot stand.
Saved or lost. Believer or unbeliever. Born again or dead in sins.

You belong to God or you do not. Demons that are using someone as a halfway house have found an open door.
Acknowledge God with mind only, have not had a true conversion. Dull of hearing, speaking blatant language of sewer rats when out of earshot or observation of Christian peers.

A lying spirit and the Holy Spirit cannot live together.
---Cindy on 2/13/08

Lying spirits and the Holy Spirit ARE living together right now, here on earth. The Holy Spirit is here, right now and so are the demonic lying spirits. They are co-existing day in and day out in the spirit realm.
---Holly4jc on 2/15/08

crystalCLEAR, salt may be used to kill bacteria, as well as garlic, and garlic is very good for your health. However to fight the powers of darkness will take more than that. Fast and pray, and use the almighty words of Jesus, and the Holy Ghost and glossalalia, and blessing oil, and laying on of hands by the spirit-filled elders are all means to destroy the enemy. Jesus has given us saints ALL Power in heaven and earth, not just some power, but ALL Power to Command the enemy.
---Eloy on 2/15/08


I of course pray on the salt and garlic before I have any expectation of it helping to ward off demons.

CRYSTALclear, it sounds like you are preserving meat and warding off vampires, like in the hollywood movies, rather than using the Word of God and the Holy Ghost against the enemy.
---Eloy on 2/14/08

Oh! I forgot the important part. When I go out I wear a necklace made of rocksalt, with a cross at the bottom, of course. I carry fresh garlic in my pockets, but keep it in sealed baggies. I don't want to offend.
---CRYSTALclear on 2/13/08

You might be a good 'Christian', who attends church services daily, but that church might be infested with demons if it is in rebellion against God. So maybe you believe yourself to be a Christian, but you are not worshipping in accordance with the Bible, and so you are not under the Blood of the Lamb. So called, self-professed Christians may not be saved, and may have demons.
---frances on 2/13/08

No. But demons can certainly cause havoc for the Saints. There is only one devil. He can not be in China and at the same time be here in the U.S.A. But he tells his demons what to do all the time and they follow his instructions. And demons are numerous. They everywhere.

Doc Tom,

Porno addiction is a terrible thing caused by demons. I have had success in preventing demons entering my household. First surround your house with garlic plants. The more the better. Surround the beds in your home with lines of salt to protect those you love while sleeping. Saltpeter in food dishes greatly reduces demonic urges and behaviors in males.

There is much bad on the internet. I required my family to keep one hand on a Bible and the other on the mouse while using it.
---CRYSTALclear on 2/13/08

I believe this is the correct answer,"I can assure you that Christians cannot be demon poe., however they can be demonized. There is a huge difference. Example: a recent study indicated that 40%+ of active Christians are addicted to prono on the net. That is demonization.
---Doc_Tom "
---mima on 2/13/08

No. Christ's Holy Spirit and satan's unholy spirit do not live in the same temple. "Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. Know you all not, that to whom you all yield yourselves servants to obey, his slaves you all are to whom you all obey, whether of sin onto death, or of obedience onto righteousness? I John 4:4+ Romans 6:16.

Some people who go to church manifest demons. I have heard this happened at a mass (I believe the priest was a very good man) and the demon scared most of the congregation. It was not staged because the person was a woman who was mentally subnormal. Good people seem to attract demons to them. Like Jesus did. But I heard demons also attack some people on their deathbeds and it is awful to witness. We should be sure we are obeying the WHOLE Bible 100 per cent.
---frances on 2/12/08

No. I believe that if you really have met Christ, in whatever way, you will be delivered. The demon-possessed who met Christ were delivered. Demons recognize Christ and Christians and want to destroy them and get them off the battlefield. You may be attacked by demons, but that is not demon possession. It might be through any kind of illness. There are doctors to help with mental and physical illness and good drugs out there (as well as bad drugs so beware).

CRYSTALClear ... Does the garlic keep the Roos away as well?
---alan_of_UK on 2/12/08

Yes definietely. I protect myself. I have surrounded my house with plantings of garlic. I sprinkle salt all around my bed before sleeping at night because that's when you are the most vulnerable.

Salt peter works well for teenage boys to stop the demons that might turn them away from abstinance. I used to put it on mine boy's foods. Of course, I set aside a special portion for my husband when he was alive. Never found anything that worked for girls, so I just watched them, and kept them in.

Christians CAN have demons. Sin/uncleaniness, generational sins/curses, curses,unforgivenss, bitterness, anger, past hurts/pain, occult practices, drugs/alcohol -All these can open doors for demons to possess you. Even some sickness/disease is demon related. Darkness and light CAN mix in this since.

Shiree, some are tormented immediately after conversion. Not for something they did wrong but because there are many who leave the faith becauise of demonic torment. The demons know this, so they try. Torment can happen though because of unrepented sin in our life, grudges in our heart, faulty beliefs(beliefs that contradict the Bible). The list goes on and on. Pray for help. These attacks don't have to continue. Ask God if you did something wrong that needs to be repented. If not, pray for deliverance.

Reg, it sounds like there's a doorway that's open in your life that you're not aware of, I would suggest getting books by Rebecca Brown MD . She deals and talks a lot about demons and many people have been helped and taught how to combat the enemy with total victory. Please look her up for you will be greatly blessed.You can post prayer requests which she takes before God ( you can do that too, but support always helps ) Also fast, pray and ask God through the Holy Spirit to lead you in prayer.

For the past 4 or 5 years, I have been persecuted by demons. I can hear their voices threaten me with death and I feel them at times move around in my rectal area. This causes much pain. I have prayed and prayed through Jesus Christ to have victory over them. I tell them that in The Name of Jesus Christ they must leave me immediately and return to Hell. This works temporarily. I am Born Again. I do take authority through Jesus Christ over them.

If one is possessed by demons, the only way to get rid of them is by prayer and fasting. Then of course command them to leave in Jesus name. A Christian woman came to our church, for awhile all was good. Until one Sunday morning, she went to the alter, started to throw up, fell back and her eyes rolled back. Then her eyes fixed themselves unto my Pastor, and she smiled. He said if anyone is not right with God, leave or get right with him. He rebuked the demon in Jesus name and it left. This is no game.

Also, if Satan is leaving you alone I would be more concern, because you are doing nothing to bother him. And also, we do have great victories, little by little. But God is always going to keep His people somewhat needy. I mean after all, if was humpty dorey all the time, than we would get the big head thinking we don't need God anymore.

If a Christian is unable to have Victory in their life, it could be mental illness.

If the demons are tormenting you constantly, it could be a chemical imbalance in the brain. If Jesus Christ cannot deliver you from the demons, you might need an actual physician.

Remember "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".
If we released everyone from a physician's care, many of those with The Manual, The Bible, would not be able to overcome mental illness. Brain malfunction takes all forms.

People with paranoid schizophrenia hold untrue beliefs (delusions) or hear things others don't hear (auditory hallucinations).

The onset of schizophrenia in men is usually in the teens or 20s. The onset in women is usually in the 20s or early 30s. Paranoid schizophrenia tends to appear toward the later end of this range.

Although there's no cure for paranoid schizophrenia, medications and well-coordinated mental health care services can help people manage the disease.

A believer can have unclean spirits. If you open yourself up through sin the enemy can get into your life.I knew a woman that got saved who used to be involved in witchcraft. She got saved but she was still posessed with those demons and she knew she was posessed by demons.It took a lot of prayer for this young lady. She is now free and living a righteous life.So if a person lives a righteous life and does not open any doors for the enemy to come in we won't have to worry about demons or unclean spirits.

A demon dwells in the fleshly part of a Christian's body. The Holy Spirit dwells with that person's spirit. Thus, the spirit is waging war with the flesh. Do you think that when a person gets saved, demons say, "Ut oh, here comes the Holy Ghost, we'd better flee from this person." NO THEY DO NOT GO WILLINGLY. Jesus said they must either be bound up or casted out of the person and the person has to want them gone.
