 Re:

There are two extremes that many Christians take when it comes to dealing with demons. The first group does not acknowledge the reality of demonic oppression in a Christian's life. The usual view of these Christians is that Jesus has won the victory, has defeated the devil, and we no longer have a problem with demons.

Then there are those that have dealt with demons and know the reality of deliverance, and have actually cast demons out of people. The danger is that those that minister deliverance to the oppressed would become demon conscious, seeing demons behind every bush, and getting out of balance.

It is the will of God that we would know the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ. We should know our authority in Jesus Christ and not fear the powers of darkness. God has placed all things under the feet of Jesus, and we are in Him, and the Word says that "we will tread on serpents and scorpions." We should be God conscious, walking in the Spirit, keeping our eyes on Jesus, putting on the whole armor of God, and standing against all of the wiles and strategies of the enemy.

We walk by faith and must receive all of our victories by faith. Many OT types of this "faith-walk".

 Re:

Hi Mike

I liked your post, I am from a position in my walk now after many years of searching for answers that the enemy uses different tactics when attacking people that only the Holy spirit see's exactly what is happening and has the answer for that particular situation which ever it may be. There are many good preachers that teach different ways to cast out spirits and each one had worked at different times and sometimes they didn't and i learned that going into situations with pre-planned strategies can interfere with me hearing the holy spirit so now if able to i will wait for the Holy Spirit to advise me of what to do.

My beliefs in demonic possession came about because of experience, i was thrown into it when i became a christian and continued ever since. Its no longer a focus of my christian walk but if God calls me to enter this area i will just like all other areas of the bible.

I personally found frank hammond interesting and gave me a couple of different perspectives to reason through. Dereck prince also helped in many different ways. I think we all have a calling and God exposes us in areas to where he wants us to walk.

 Another/strength

Here is another example, btw I have enjoyed every ones in put.
On a Friday nite myself and Charles N. was across the street from the main body of witnesses. We was just talking to each other when a real little woman, maybe 85 lbs. sopping wet, walked up between us and literally picked us up off the ground and swung us around growling at us. Both of us together weighted roughly 200 each so she was man handling over 400 lbs. She was about 5 foot tale so she only came to our shoulders. I really wish that I could report to everyone that we were great men of faith and power but we were not. She than released us and walked into the middle of the street and started with the vulgarities and lewd gestures, honestly neither of us were prayed up to deal with that. But I never forgot that, and I remembered the story in the gospels where the man demon possessed would break the chains and was tormented in that grave yard til Jesus set him free where we see him clothed and in his right mind.

So I figured that supernatural strength in this instant was purely demonic. I also learned a valuable lesson that nite, Pray before going out to witness, during witnessing and afterwards. Sometimes my prayer life is just so so, just enough to get me by, but when engaged in real close combat like that ...I go more prepared now:)

 Re: Another/strength

I remember an incident that occurred
around 20 years ago. A brother asked me to
go with him to pray for a man that had been
experiencing severe depression. As we
began to pray, we noticed that the man's
facial features began to change. There was
another power distorting his face.
Then he began to speak with a voice that
was not his. I remember hearing "this is our
home", and other utterances to try to throw
us off track. As we commanded the
spirits to leave, a spirit spoke through the
man saying: "we are all gone now." We
continued to cast out the spirits until it
was evident that they were all gone.

This world is not my home anymore.

 Re:

If I may share another story, this one recently... my sister has gone to church her whole life, was saved at a young age, has loved Jesus, has two daughters who love Jesus but she has demonic activity in ALL areas concerning “me” and it goes way back to our father and telling that would literally take 15 pages of family history to explain.

I have always wondered if I could blame how my sister treated me over the years (secretly of course b/c she's a Christian), on demons; but I've always heard (never believed it till now). After my mom died 2 ½ years ago, soon after my sister called me up and lambasted me over the phone and I became livid,. After hanging up the phone, I got in the car (I was 5 miles away from her), but while getting into the car through sobs I told the devil out loud, “You say one word to me when I get there and mean ONE, I will cast you out then and there. I am so sick of this.”

Well, when I walked into the condo, she treated me like a long lost friend, hugged me, invited me in and made no mention of what she lambasted me over. I just stood there with my mouth open knowing that the evil spirits heard me from 5 miles away. (Edit: I learned that satan is indeed the prince of the power of the air. Eph 2:2)

It was also the Lord giving me confirmation that there was demonic activity in her life. But He also encouraged me because believe it or not, what I saw that moment in time, was the true sister I’ve never had and I had hope.

Also, through that experience, the Lord opened my eyes to this verse – “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph 6.12 I am not against my sister anymore, I am against those evil spirits that operate in her, the principalities and powers.

I pray for continue to love her, pray for her and for the Lord to send someone in her life who believes in casting out demons because I don't know if she would accept it from me. Only the Lord knows when her deliverance will come but I’m praying for it to be soon!!

To the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever. Amen. (Romans 16.27)

 Re:

Having just read your post I find it interesting, reminds me of a few things but I just wanted to briefly comment on a couple of things. Mat 18:18
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Mat 18:19
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 18:20
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.


Basically here Jesus is speaking of relationship with in the family of God and the authority of the believer to bind and loose. Basically you should consider getting a few close friends in the church together and just simply binding that influence over your sister and than just show the love of Christ to her in order for the graces of forgiveness to work in her heart toward you and that door of oppression will cease to be. Her accepting deliverance does not need to be something she even realizes she may need, love covers a multitude of sins. Prayer is amazing but united prayer is indeed a very under used thing when it comes to our daily lives. We tend to live in the abstract when it comes to our daily lives and we hold to a vague belief when we are praying for things like answers to prayer somewhere around the world. In business the term "I would rather be a meaningful specific than a wondering generality" is used ....of course like I would rather be focused on specific goal oriented pursuits than just kinda out there....like a dog that is chasing its tail in circles. I do trust that you and your sister will be well. God Bless.

Thank you so much, brother! I have brought to her that same Scripture that you just mentioned that she and I needed to be in agreement. But I did not think of it as getting some close friends together and praying for her. I will do that!! I so appreciate you bringing that to me. God is so good!

Thank you and God bless,
Lisa

 Re:

I do not have time right now but I will post some first hand examples of Christians being set free from various oppression's by demonic activity. These tend to be somewhat different than possession but can be almost as controlling....usually in just a specific area or an other...ummm more compartmentalized I guess. God Bless DMiller
