..Possesion means "ownership",Christians are very often oppressed by the devil...and there are various reasons for this but "the curse causeless cannot come" (as it says in proverbs),part of the answer is seeking wise Christian counsel...P.S...dont be afraid to have a deliverance party,and stick it back to the accuser of the brethren...he hates that!

Yes, a christian can have a demon attack them. Why would a demon attack a non-believer? The demon would have nothing to gain. In haiti a man prayed out a demon then the demon turned on him. he said is skin felt like it was on fire for weeks. God used this to empower him to face demons and to fully rely on GOD. The persons church is surrounded by 3 or 4 voodoo temples. The local voodoo priest respect him because they know he has supernatural power. i am not talking about new oleans funny ha ha voodoo.

Nope, only NonChristians have NonChristian spirits.
---Eloy on 3/10/11

Sometimes we are so busy chasing demons that instead of honour Christ we honour demons. Demons can't stand Jesus, it is usually confessed sin that lies at the bottom of the problem if deal with that then victory is given for Jesus is the deliverer flees. Often time the demon run around avoids dealing with sin.

One reason God chose me, He knew I could preach about the devil. No! Christians can not have a demon. We have>>>>GOD. However, Satan can cause a lot of havoc in a Christian's life.
---catherine on 8/15/10

I am responding to, bless her heart, Andrea back in 9-8/07. I'll pray alright. I'll pray that God will remove wicked people from leadership. Hallelujah.
---catherine on 8/15/10

Yes, I am married.
---Jim on 8/14/10

The devil cannot work against himself so as long as you can cast demons out your not a demon!

You maybe deceived and lose in your way to Christ, through some other sin, but Your not a demon!

However, You could end up in the same fate as one, Get to know God thoroughly and do his will, let his will be done in your life!

God will Not live - dwell in an unclean temple.

It Is the same for those that smoke, drink alcoh bev's, take il - drugs, use the name of God in vain etc.
---Lawrence on 8/7/10

If demons tremble at the name of Jesus, then what do you think they would do in the Presence of the Spirit of God. When christian give their heart to the Lord, the Holy Spirit takes up residence in their soul. Christian have authority over demonic Spirits. Christains cannot be posessed by a demon.
---Marcia on 5/11/08

Actually cathrine every time I see Nancy Pelosi - that is really what i think. I do not have the gift of discerning spirits but I'm telling you it is like a neon sign. Pray for her and all our political leaders - Satan wants them more then those without influence. They need our prayers - even when they don't know it.
---Andrea on 9/8/07

If you are talking about a true washed in the blood, saved, and sanctifed Christian. No. Are there Christians who allow Satan to lead them astray? Yes.
---denna7667 on 9/7/07

Do you have any idea how many demon possessed people we have running things in this world? It is no joke. And I am not laughing. Neither should you be laughing.
---catherine on 8/29/07

As true Believers, that is we have been bought by the blood of Jesus Christ, Therefore, We have the mind of Christ.

You still haven't answered my question, I am not like you. I will believe you. I will not accuse you of being somebody else. I know you are who you say you are. Nobody on this cite is writing what you write. Everybody else is writing edifying, encouraging, and helpful responses.

My question:

everything okay with you?
How old are you?
---Marcia on 8/23/07

No Andrea. Christians can not have (possess) demons . There's no biblically rational reason why any Christian would want to have possession of a demon & /or demons.

Again, demons can & do constantly harrass (torment) but can not indwell (possess) Christians . They can attack (bedevil) Christians from without, not from within.

Marcia, you've been flying under the radar for a long time. Aren't you really around 58?
You've put the appropriate 4 numerals behind your names, it adds to the authenticity of your unauthenticity. I have given you a huge pinch. As I've said, don't flatter yourself, I am not obsessed with you. When you step in a bucket of slop, you end up getting some on yourself, but I tell you, it was worth it. I'm glad to see JohnT, and Ralph, aren't you?
Maybe. Maybe not.
---Crystal on 8/23/07

Marcia, one more thing, Kathr4453 has always been concerned with her votes.
When someone confronts her, she always throws that in their face. But those votes were before we knew the real Kathr.
Votes are often not an indicator of Christ-like replies, soundness of the Gospel, it's usually about controversy.
---Crystal on 8/23/07

I know I should probably be ignoring you, but I am concerned and I can't help to wonder.

Are you Okay?
I know you have to be a credible witness for Christ to have obtain 47 votes while on here, but nothing you say lately has been encouraging, edifying, or up lifting to anybody.

How old are you? Are you getting up in age, if so I understand. I'm not condemning you. I just wonder why you are so angry all the time?
---Marcia on 8/23/07

Linda came out of the occult, do you think that she and all of the alter egos had a true conversion? Do you think all aspects of Linda's personality will come together?
Do you think that everything that Linda messed with has been renounced or do you think there's some residue left behind?
Similar to the that residue gospel that Kathr preaches about Jesus turning the water into grape juice?
Do you Andrea Marcia Kathr Linda think you might have some demonic influence, as your David did?

I'm always shocked (even at myself) how ignorant we are about demonic activity. Jesus taught about it and the NT teaches at length, I have to believe that He wants us to take authority over them - and if we are not to cast them out of an unsaved person then just who do we cast them out of?

I've been in deliverance ministries and still struggle with this so I think it is "like a spirit " of delusion. It doesn't make sense that the church basicly ignores this.
---Andrea on 8/22/07

It isn't a sin to be tempted. It is a sin when you yield to that temptation.
James 1:14-15
It is not a sin to have a demon, but it is a sin to keep it.
Christians have a command to yield, and present your body as a living sacrifice to God.
Rom 12:1-2
1 Cor 6:20
Rom 6:13
A Christian cannot have a demon in the spirit man. But you can be under the influence of a demon.
---Michelle on 8/21/07

If you are under the influence of demons, they will fight against peace of mind, relationships with others, and your commitment to the Lord.
They must be resisted.
If you are not a Christian, and they are in you, they must be expelled.
---Michelle on 8/21/07

If you are not really born again, saved, and you don't have the Holy Spirit, but have unholy spirits influencing you, or residing in you, you will have to want deliverance.
Because Satan is their superior, demons will seek to destroy you.

The person who ministers deliverance will have the Holy Spirit, and will speak forth the Word of God. Psalms 107:20

If you are demon possessed, it is only by an act of your will that you can be delivered.
It is by faith, your asking, that you can be delivered.
If you have areas in your life that have not been dealt with, it will cause a hindrance to your deliverance. You can't let Satan find any place in you.
---Michelle on 8/21/07

Hi andrea, I do not believe that a true child of God can be pocessed by a demon, but I do believe that a true child of God can be tormented by a demon. Where does the enemy strike? In the mind of a Believer. That is why Ephesians 6:11-17 teaches us to put on the whole armour of God.
---Cynthia on 8/21/07

It's important what you do after deliverance.
Matt 12:43-45
When unclean spirits leave a person, they leave a void.
It must be filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. John 6:63
When the evil spirits come back, they will find the void filled. You will have to keep yourself filled with the Word of God.
The avenue into your body is through the mind.
Gen 3:1-6
If you are not born again, a deliverance may be needed. Then you can fall at Jesus' feet and worship Him.
---Michelle on 8/21/07

If the devil's power seems more real to you than God's power, then the enemy can manifest himself more easily and powerfully in your life.
Christians know that God's power is always greater. Exodus 7:8-12

I asked this question once to an indian missionary...he said that Christians cant have demons...but a christian who is luke warm can...
I trust him b/c hes got to deal with demons lots
---mark_B. on 8/21/07

If you find that you are continually committing sins that you do not want to commit, but are compelled, if you have confessed your sin or sins again and again but continue to commit sin, you had better seek the Lord.
You are more than likely under the influence of a demon. If there are areas in your life that are not in control of the Holy Spirit and the Lordship of Jesus Christ, it is possible that you need deliverance.
John 10:10
Eph 6:12
---Michelle on 8/21/07

What is the difference. Demons having Christians or Christians having a demon or whatever!. The bottom line is both are 100% false. The devil can ofcourse play havoic with a true Christian. Jesus was tempted all through His ministry but being God never, ever, succumbed to the UGLY DEVIL. In other words, The devil had no part in Him. Now that Jesus has been raised from the DEAD, He now can help us not to succumb to the UGLY Devil.

Yes we can Demons can enter through unresolved hurt or sins in our past and take hold
This happened to me and it ruined a lot of my life but prayer and help from the church can remove it so only our choice is in your heart not a guiding Demon.
Its strange to feel one leave it burned but I gave it a hold years ago and it stopped me from being a true Christian for a long time.

Debby >>>

What church do you go to?
---Marcia on 8/21/07

A Christian can't be possessed by a demon. But a person can have an evil spirit. The spirit of fear, unbelief, the spirit of jealousy, the spirit of pride, the spirit of lying, the spirit of rage, the list goes on. These people can be Christians and not realize they have these evil spirits in them. Satan walks to and fro, seeking whom he may devour.
---Rebecca_D on 8/21/07

No a Christian can not have a demon, however, a demon can have a Christian.

I believe a Christian can have a demon if he or she is not fully surrendered to GOd. Those who are fully surrendered to God can't be indwelt by demons, because they are indwelt by God's spirit. See Mathew 12:24-30
---Debby on 8/21/07

I would say that Marcia, Andrea and all of the gang are being influenced by demons.
If you are not a Christian, really, then you are probably do have one or many of them.
---Crystal on 8/21/07

The answer is yes!! Christian can have a demon, not a processing demon but rather a tormenting demon.
---Mima on 8/21/07

No Andrea. Christians can't be demon possessed but are constantly demon harassed.
