Please look at the foot of the home page where you will see links to John Kyle’s mass deliverances on Omega Man Radio, two of Milton Green’s deliverance prayers from his sermons, a sermon from one of the foremost authorities on the Bible, Derek Prince, and links to other safe and sure deliverance materials. Safe would mean where the ministers are careful to put everything in the hands of Jesus Christ, applying His blood shed for our sins, and lead others to do the same, then not only will we be absolutely safe, we absolutely cannot fail.
Can a Christian have a demon?
Absolutely yes, ask any experienced deliverance minister and check on the internet where many articles are available about that very subject. While a huge amount of biblical evidence can be found to show that a Christian can have a demon, one would be hard-pressed to use scripture to prove that a Christian can’t have a demon.
A crucial point is that a Christian cannot be completely possessed by a demon, although they can be influenced, tempted, harassed, enticed, defiled, Some Christians hate the idea, but that is often due to pride and other things!
Can a Christian be Demon Possessed?
Herein lies much of the confusion. ‘Having’ demons and being ‘possessed’ by demons are entirely different matters. Possession denotes ownership. A Christian belongs to Christ. He has been purchased by the precious blood of Jesus (I Cor. 6:19, 20). The King James Bible, and a few other versions, have translated the Greek word daimonizomai as ‘demon
possessed’, whereas the word specifically means ‘to act under the control of demons’. ‘Those who were thus afflicted expressed the mind and consciousness of the demon or demons indwelling them’ (Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words). Christians can be influenced and controlled by demons who indwell them, but demons cannot ‘possess’ (own) a Christian. Demons dwelling in Christians are trespassers without ownership rights; therefore, they are subject to eviction in the authority of the Name of the One who has redeemed such believers unto Himself by His blood (I Pet. 1:18).
Some have questioned, ‘How can an evil spirit dwell in a person who has the Holy Spirit within him?’ The answer is made clear by remembering that ‘your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit’ I Cor. 6:19. The Temple in Jerusalem had three parts: Outer Court, Holy Place and Holy of Holies. The presence of God dwelt solely in the Holy of Holies. The three compartments in the Temple correspond to man’s tripartite being: body, soul and spirit. For the Christian, the human spirit corresponds to the Holy of Holies, which is the dwelling place of The Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit desires us to submit every area of our ‘temple’ to His control. Other temple areas include the mind, the emotions, the will and the physical body.
Jesus found defilement in the Jerusalem temple; however, the moneychangers and the merchants with doves and cattle were not in the Holy of Holies, but in the outer courts of the temple. Jesus proceeded to ‘cast out’ all who defiled the temple (Matt. 21:12). This is a perfect analogy to deliverance. Defilement is not in the spirit of a Christian but in the ‘outer courts’ of his mind, emotions and body. There can be defilement in the Outer Court while the presence of the Lord remains in the Holy of Holies. Jesus is highly displeased with such a condition. He wants His temple cleansed and every defiling demon cast out.”
