Can A Christian Be Demon Possessed?
(By OBIABO SAMUEL)
It is believed that whenever someone’s mind is controlled by a spirit, it is said that the person is possessed by that spirit, and often times I heard people saying, whenever deliverance is taking place; the demons will come out and enter into some christians with lesser faith! I was told of a church where the pastor was casting out demons and suddenly he ran mad. Hmmm! Does this means he’s possessed?……
Now! What does the BIBLE teaches? Is it possible for a christian to be demon possessed?………
In the book of “I Corinthians 6:17; but he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit……”
To become a Christian is to be born-again, which means in the spirit realm you are joined with Christ, and therefore you become one spirit with the Lord, therefore for Christian to be possessed of demons, it means Jesus has to be possessed………because Jesus and Christians are one in spirit. It is not possible for Jesus to be possessed of demons… why? The bible teaches that Jesus(word) was in the beginning and He was with God and He was God…John1:1. if Jesus is God He cannot be possessed of demons.
Before I continued, I want to state clearly that they are three levels of demonic activities;
When someone is preoccupied with something in his mind, i.e thinks and talks about always, he’s said to be obssessed. My major emphasis is not on obssession……..
We saw above that a Christian cannot be possessed of demons, then what happened in the story above? the pastor that ran mad; In Corinthians 11:13 “….. false apostles transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ…”, also in Acts 19:15 “And the spirit answhered and said Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?……….. Dear friends, no man that has Christ in him, can be possessed of demons. Is either the pastor was not born again or he does not understand his authority in Christ.
Can a Christian be oppressed? I will tell you a little in this article. the answer is YES. To oppress is to make someone feel unhappy by restricting their freedom in some ways, and preventing them from having the same rights that Christians should have. As Christians we have rights to devine health, prosperity, e.t.c. yet some experience sicknesses, poverty e.t.c.
My Beloved friends, the only set of individuals that cannot be possessed by demons are those that have Christ…
WHY DON’T YOU RECEIVE HIM (CHRIST) NOW?…
