and the truth shall set you free

light vs darkness

We do not believe that the Bible teaches that a Christian can be possessed, which means to have his body, or the physical home of the immaterial soul, indwelt by a demon. We do believe, however, that Christians can be severely influenced or oppressed by Satan and the demonic powers. The key issues on this matter revolve around the differences between internal control/inhabitation and external influence.

 

 

The Holy Spirit. Scripture clearly teaches that the Holy Spirit indwells each believer. First Corinthians 6:19 says, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God?” The Holy Spirit lives inside every believer in the church age. He has converted their physical body into the dwelling place of the Trinity. In addition, 1 John 4:4 tells us, “Greater is He who is in you [the Holy Spirit] than he who is in the world [Satan and the demonic powers].”

 

 

Therefore, a demon is not able to enter into and take control of a believer’s physical body because the Holy Spirit lives there. Think of it thus: because the Holy Spirit lives in the material house of a believer, then every time a demon knocks at the door the Holy Spirit answers. Since God the Holy Spirit is stronger than any demonic being, including Satan himself, then no demon or evil spirit could enter. It’s that simple: God is greater than Satan; thus, He protects His children.

Again, we know that being biblical is not popular, people like fantastic, sensationalism and they also like to blame their problems on someone or something other than themselves. That way they don’t have to take responsibility or like you can’t dance until you get a few drinks in you, same thing, now I have an excuse for bad behavior. Only now you don’t.
