| "HOW DO I
KNOW WHO HAS A DEMON?"
I was ask this question, in fact, I am ask this question all the time. Below is a
very "short," and to the point answer I believe will help you.
It is "not," my intention here to give a lesson on demonology,
or the casting out of demons... the Word of God will teach you all you need to
know, and the Spirit of God will give you the power and the wisdom to know what,
and when, to do what is needed in any given situation, as long as you are in love with
Jesus, and in sweet communion with him, and obedience.
IT IS VERY SIMPLE TO SEE THE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE FRUIT OF THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL..... "WHATEVER IS CONTRARY TO THE TRUTH AND THE WORD OF GOD..." THIS IS THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTI-CHRIST, THE BIBLE TELLS US.UNDERSTAND THIS AT THE BEGINNING.. All, everyone, on the planet, who has not Christ as Lord, has a demon/s in them and Jesus said they are all the children of the devil, (their father). (John 8:34-45 ).
OF COURSE THE FRUIT OF THE DEVIL, AND THE FRUIT OF THE FLESH ARE ONE AND THE SAME. "YOU CANNOT CAST OUT THE FLESH, NOR CAN YOU DIE TO A DEMON."
YOU MUST "DIE TO THE FLESH, AND CAST OUT THE DEMON, OR RESIST SATAN AND HE WILL FLEE."( Romans 6: 1-23 ). ( James 4: 4-10 ).
WHENEVER WE PRACTICE A SIN, AND WE REALLY DO NOT REPENT OF IT, BUT CONTINUE TO DO IT, ESPECIALLY AFTER KNOWING WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS CONCERNING THE THING BEING DONE, OR AFTER SOMEONE HAS POINTED IT OUT. THEN, WE OPEN UP THROUGH THE WORKS OF THE FLESH, "GROUND," FOR THE POWERS OF DARKNESS TO COME IN AND SET UP CAMP, "A STRONGHOLD," A "FORTRESS," A PLACE TO WAGE WAR AGAINST THAT PERSON .....( 11 CORINTHIANS 10: 3-6 ).
FROM THIS STRONGHOLD, (AREA NOT SURRENDERED TO THE HOLY SPIRIT), THE DEVIL CONTINUES TO TEMPT AND CONTROL THAT AREA OF THE PERSONS LIFE.. I.E.... THEY CONTINUE TO BE BITTER, OR HATE, ANGER, TEMPER, LUST, LYING, ETC. ETC. WHATEVER THE SIN MAY BE.
THE MORE THEY CONTINUE, THE WORSE THE STRONGHOLD BECOMES, AND MORE SIN (OR BAD FRUIT), BEGINS TO MANIFEST ITSELF, AND THE PERSON, (USUALLY) THINKS THEY ARE ALRIGHT WITH THE LORD.
THE CHURCH TODAY IS FULL OF FOLKS LUSTING AND LYING AND PLAYING GAMES AND LOVING SIN AND FLESH, AND YET, THINK THEY ARE IN THE 'FAVOR OF GOD,'... BLESSED..!
THEY PLAY, OR FLIRT WITH THE THINGS OF THE WORLD, THEY LISTEN TO IT'S MUSIC, AND ARE UNDER THE 'SPELL,' OF IT'S ENTERTAINMENT!
STILL, THEY THINK THEY ARE IN THE FAVOR OF GOD! NO! THEY ARE UNDER A CURSE, AND THE PRESENCE OF GOD IS NOT THERE.
REMEMBER, A TRUE CHRISTIAN, CANNOT BE DEMON POSSESSED. THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD WILL NOT SHARE THE SPACE HE OCCUPIES WITH A DEMON. BUT, THE PERSON(CHRISTIAN) CAN EASILY, AS DESCRIBED ABOVE, BE DEMONIZED,DEMON "OPPRESSED."
THIS MEANS AREAS OF THEIR LIVES ARE CONTROLLED BY THE DEMON/S, INSTEAD OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, BECAUSE THEY HAVE LOVED THEIR SIN, AND REFUSED THE DEALINGS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, UNTIL THEY GOT A STRONGHOLD. LINK UPON LINK, BEGINS TO PILE UP IN THEIR LIVES TO THE CHAIN THEY ARE BOUND WITH, AND THE BONDAGE BECOMES WORSE AND WORSE.... THIS CAN LEAD, AND DOES MANY TIMES TO FALLING FROM GRACE, (THE ENABLING POWER OF GOD), AND WITH STILL "NO REPENTANCE," THE HEART BECOMES HARDER AND HARDER TOWARDS THE THINGS OF GOD, UNTIL FINALLY, APOSTASY TAKES PLACE...(2 Peter 2: 19-22 ).
MANY, MANY, MANY, IN THE CHURCH ARE DEMONIZED, IN FACT MOST ALL THE CHURCH IS. AND THE PASTOR/S, ARE CONTROLLED BY THE HATEFUL SPIRITS OF HELL, FROM SOME WOMAN OR MAN IN THE CHURCH TO INTIMIDATE THE PASTOR AND KEEP HIM IN CHECK. (THIS ONLY HAPPENS TO THE PASTORS WHO ARE SELF-APPOINTED, OR HIRELINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE),NO REAL MAN OF GOD WILL ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.
TO ISOLATE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN, "IS THIS A DEMON, OR THE FLESH," IN A PERSON, DOES TAKE THE DISCERNMENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND SOMETIMES IT IS VERY EASY TO SEE AND KNOW, SOMETIMES IT TAKES A WHILE. THE THING IS, "NEVER," GO ON A WITCH HUNT! NEVER PLACE YOUR FOCUS IN THE CHURCH ON, "IS THIS DEMONS?" YOU SHOULD KNOW QUICK ENOUGH... ONE RULE, (BIBLICAL), TO REMEMBER.. WHERE YOU FIND FLESH PRACTICED AND LOVED, THERE, YOU WILL FIND DEMONS, NO DOUBT! EVEN( REV: 18: 1-2), MAKES THIS CLEAR.. THERE ARE MORE SCRIPTURES AS WELL... AND ( REV: 18: 3-18,) TELLS YOU HOW THE CHURCH/PERSON/S, GET THAT WAY...... ( I John 3: 2-10 ),
BUT, LET YOUR FOCUS BE ON CHRIST, AND THE BUILDING UP OF THE BODY THEREOF, AND "BE AWARE, BE ALERT, BE SOBER, AND DO NOT BE IGNORANT OF THE DEVICES OF THE DEVIL, AS WE ARE TAUGHT"
THE GOVERNMENT TRAINS PEOPLE TO SPOT COUNTERFEIT MONEY, BY LETTING THEM HANDLE THE "REAL THING" SO MUCH, THAT WHEN THE COUNTERFEIT COMES, THEY SEE IT INSTANTLY.."
THAT IS THE SAME IN OUR WALK WITH THE LORD... WHEN WE FOCUS ON HIM, AND HAVE CLOSE COMMUNION WITH HIM ALONE, WE WILL KNOW WHEN SOMETHING IS NOT LINING UP WITH THE WORD OF GOD, AND SHOULD HAVE THE MATURITY TO HANDLE IT BY THE SPIRIT, AND NOT IN, OR BY THE FLESH, AS SOME DO WITH A RELIGIOUS SPIRIT AND ATTITUDE.
If some one in the assembly needs help with a demonic problem, you do not have to "shout it out," as so many try and do. All you need is a relationship with Jesus Christ, and the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and you can tell the devil to go, and he will flee.
Understand one thing beloved... most all of these problems are stubborn flesh. The hateful stubborn flesh must be dealt with first, sin must be renounced, and repented of, or "THERE WILL BE NO DELIVERANCE!"
Just learn to walk in righteousness with the Lord and all the rest will fall into place!
