I Spotted Him!

Word has been floating around that the Dawg has been fighting some demons that only a few people were spiritual enough to see as they manifested themselves in his life.

Well I think I have spotted one of them!

OK... seriously folks...
How can a Born again, Spirit-filled child of God be possessed by demons?

When a Christian receives Christ their personal Lord and Savior the Holy Spirit enters that Christian's body, soul and spirit. God has claimed that person for His own and as a result, demons cannot occupy the same place as the Holy Spirit. Satan knows this, and that is why he tries so hard to get to people first and have his demons or demonic influence control or affect that person.

Demons can’t stay in anyone who consistently submits to God and resists the devil. (James 4:7) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

The devil and all demons must flee from such a person.

Such a Christian who is submitting to God in this way is not grieving the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30 “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”)

If one is “sealed” by the Holy Spirit, a demonic spirit cannot break through such a seal. Therefore the Holy Spirit is making sure that no demon remains in the temple of God. Such a person is “keeping themselves, and the evil one touches him not” (1 John 5:18).

So, is the Word of God right, or is a group of people right?

I’ll stand on the Word!

The problem for so many is that they try to blame or give credit to Satan for every thing that happens in life. Got a headache… “that’s a demon.” Backache… “demon.” Get angry when the kids disobey you? …That’s a demon.

Question that I need to ask:
Why is it that these demons are only present in everyone else’s life?

Why do such people often have a need to wear eye glasses? Judging by the same standard, would that not be a demon?

When their kids act up, they are just tired. But when it is MY kids, “oh, that’s a demon disrupting the pastor’s home.”

I am amazed at just how gullible some people can be.
