Demoni i svoje sposobnosti kao što je opisano u Bibliji

Poglavlje 6 - Demoni i svoje sposobnosti kao što je opisano u Bibliji

Kao što smo pokriveni, Biblija uči da danas kršćani u borbi protiv demona, drugi val pali anđeli, a njihov vođa, palog anđela Sotone. Mi ćemo pogledati demona u Bibliji, i sposobnosti pokazao demoni, da bolje razumiju što aktivnosti demoni se bave danas.

Mi smo pokriveni da je najvjerojatnije demoni bestjelesnih duhova mrtvih divova (Nefili) koji je živio prije potopa, i očinski potomaka. U Bibliji demona nazivaju duhovima mrtvih. U Starom zavjetu Bog zabranjuje ljudima da praksa komunikacije s duhovima mrtvih, ili biti upoznati s tim demonima, i takva je povezana s čarobnim praksu. Demoni su također zaslužan kao blisko uključeni u praksi idolopoklonstvo, koji je također zabranjeno.

Obično kad ljudi misle o demonima oni misle pojma "opsjednutosti". Pojam "posjed" dolazi od KJV prijevod riječi "daimonizomai". Ova riječ je glagol koji znači "biti pod vlašću demona" (Thayer je leksikon). Ova riječ ne znači "da se demon unutar vašeg tijela." Većina doslovno ovaj glagol znači "biti demoned" ili "biti demoning". Vjerojatno najbolji engleski prijevod bi bio ", da se demoniziraju". Koncept osobe koja se "opsjednut" ne dolazi od grčke riječi "daimonizomai" koje bi bolje prevesti kao "demoniziraju". Umjesto toga, pojam "vlasništvo" dolazi iz konteksta priče snimljene o demonima.

Isus je više puta rekao demonima da "izađu" ljudi, i Biblija bilježi da je Isus "izbačen" demona, a ti uvjeti su točne.

Uvečer su došli, donijeli su mu mnogi koji su opsjednutog. On izagna duhove riječju i ozdravi svima koji su bili bolesni. Matt 8:16

A Isus mu zaprijeti: Umukni i iziđi iz njega. A kad nečisti duh potrese ga i povika iza glasa, on iziđe iz njega. Matt 1:25-26

Kad je Isus vidio da se narod grne, on zaprijeti nečistom duhu, rekavši da je: "gluhih i nijemoga duha, ja ti zapovijedam, iziđi iz njega i unesite ga više ne!" Mark 9:25

Postoji nekoliko priča o ljudima koji demoniziraju kao da u potpunosti kontrolira demona, što je tradicionalni pogled na "posjed". No, s druge strane, tu su priče u kojima demonizirani osoba kao da se djelovanje na neke normalne mjere, barem neke od vrijeme. Kao takav se čini da postoje različite razine demonizacija koji su mogući. Tu su i priče u kojima se mnogi ljudi izliječeni da izgone demone, ali to nije navedeno koliko svaki od tih ljudi bili kontrolirani od strane demona. Ukupni Biblija čini snimiti neke od najgorih slučajeva demonizacije u većini detalja.

Onda su došli na drugu stranu mora, u zemlju Gadarenes. I kad je došao iz broda, odmah eto mu u susret iz grobova čovjek s nečistim duhom, koji je imao nastani se među grobnicama i nitko nije mogao svezati, čak ni s lancima, jer je već često bio vezan s okova i lanaca. A lanci su izdvajali apart po njemu, i okova razbijen u komade, niti itko može ga ukrotiti. I uvijek, danju i noću, on je bio u planinama i na grobovima, vičući i sebe rezanje s kamenjem. Kad je vidio Isusa iz daljine, on dotrči i pokloni mu. On povika iza glasa i reče: "Što ja imam s tobom, Isusa, Sina Svevišnjega Boga? Ja vas molim od Boga da ne muči me. "Jer On reče mu:" Iziđite iz čovjeka, duše nečisti! "Tada ga upita:" Kako ti je ime? "A on odgovori:" Moj ime je Legija, jer mi mnogo "Također ga zamole iskreno da neće poslati ih izvan zemlje.. Sada poveliko krdo svinja je hranjenje bilo u blizini planine. Dakle, sve molio ga, govoreći: "Pošaljite nam se svinje, da ih unesite." I odjednom je Isus dao im dopuštenje. Zatim nečisti duhovi iziđoše i uđoše u svinje (bilo je oko dvije tisuće), a krdo jurnu niz obronak u more i utopio se u moru. Dakle, oni koji su hranjeni svinje pobjegli, i oni to rekli u gradu i zemlji. I oni iziđoše vidjeti što je to što se dogodilo. Onda su došli k Isusu, i vidješe onaj koji je bio demon-posjedovao i imao legiju, sjedi i obučen i zdrave pameti. I oni su se bojali. Označi 5:1-15

A kada je stao na kopno, eto mu u susret neki čovjek iz grada koji imaše zloduhe za dugo vremena. I on je nosio bez odjeće, niti je živjeti u kući, ali u grobnicama. Kad je vidio Isusa, on povika, pao pred njim, i sa snažnim glasom reče: "Što ja imam s tobom, Isusa, Sina Svevišnjega Boga? Molim vas, ne muči me! "Jer bijaše zapovjedio nečistom duhu da iziđe iz čovjeka. Jer često su ga zaplijenili, a on je zadržao pod stražar, vezan lancima i okovima, a on je razbio obveznice i bio je upravljan od strane demona u pustinju. Isus ga nato upita: "Što ti je ime?" A on reče: "Legija", jer mnoge zloduhe ga je ušao. I zamolio ga da se On ne bi ih naredba za izlazak u ponor. Sada krdo svinja je mnogo hrane nalazi na brdu. Tako su ga molili je da će dopustiti im da ih unesete. I on ih je dopuštena. Tada zlodusi iziđoše iz čovjeka i uđoše u svinje, a krdo jurnu niz obronak u jezero i utopio se. Kada oni koji su ih hranili vidjeli što se dogodilo, svinjari pobjegoše i javiše to u gradu i zemlji. Zatim su otišli vidjeti što se dogodilo, i došao Isusu i nađoše čovjeka iz kojega demoni su otišli, sjedi do nogu Isusovih, obučen i zdrave pameti. I oni su se bojali. Također, koji cijelo mnoštvo okolnih regija Gadarenes zatražio od njega da odstupi od njih, jer su oduzeti uz velik strah. On uđe u lađu i vrati. Sada čovjeka iz kojega demoni nije napustio zamolio ga da bude uza nj. Ali ga on otpusti govoreći, i on ode i proglasio kroz cijeli grad što se velike stvari je Isus učinio za njega Luke 8 "Vrati se kući i reći što velike stvari je Bog učinio za vas.". 27-39

U ovoj priči demonizirani čovjek čini se da je pod potpunu kontrolu od mnogih demona u njemu. Demoni opisani su da su zbog simptoma ludila, neobične ili nadnaravne snage, self-sakaćenju ili samoozljeđivanje, samoizolacije, nemogućnosti doći drugi ljudi koji su pokušali da mu pomogne, a činilo ukupno gubitak biće sposobno biti "zdrave pameti". Demoni su mu da ne nose odjeću niti, također čineći ga napraviti neke stvari koje bi se moglo smatrati sramotno, ili ponižavajućeg, i nenormalan. Demoni su mu da živi među grobovima, nešto što se smatra abnormalnim, ali i nečisti. Demoni znao tko je Isus, da je bio Sin Božji, i činilo ga se bojali.

Broj demona koji su u ovom čovjeku navedeni su da su bili u mogućnosti ispuniti stado od oko 2000 svinja. Kada demoni ušli u svinje, izazvala svinja svi umiru sami utapanje. Ako demoni su bestjelesne duh mrtve Nefili, onda je moguće i vjerojatno da su neki od njih umro od utapanja u potop. Ako ništa drugo, oni su bili svjedoci poplava. Uzimajući to u obzir, čini se kao da bi moglo biti više od površine razini što znači da ih uzrokuje sve te svinje utopiti ... kao možda su stvaranje izjavu, u nekim gorke odnosu na svoje prošlosti.

U druga priča, demon je u više navrata pokušao utopiti dječaka, te ga baciti u vatru, kako bi ga ubiti. Demoni mnogo puta čini se da su suicidalne savijena.

Tada jedan od mnoštva i reče: "Učitelju, dovedoh Ti sine moj, koji je nijemi duh. I gdje god mu se oduzme, to ga baca dolje, on pjene na usta, gnashes zube, i postaje kruta. Tako sam govorio da tvoji učenici, da bi ga izbaciti, ali nisu mogli. "On mu je odgovorio i rekao:" O rode nevjerni, koliko dugo ću biti s vama? Koliko dugo ću nositi sa sobom? Dovedite ga k meni. "
Tada su ga doveli do njega. A kad ga ugleda, odmah ga Duh potrese, i on je pao na zemlju i valjao, pjeneći se na usta. Dakle, Isus upita njegova oca: "Koliko dugo je ovo bila događa s njim?" A on reče: "Od djetinjstva. I često je ga bacio obje u vatru i vodu u njemu uništiti. Ali ako možete učiniti ništa, smilovat na nas te nam pomoći. "Isus mu reče:" Ako možete vjerovati, sve je moguće onomu koji vjeruje. "Odmah otac djeteta povika sa suzama, "Gospodine, ja vjerujem;! pomoći moje nevjere" Kad je Isus vidio da se narod grne, on zaprijeti nečistom duhu, rekavši da ga "gluhih i nijemoga duha, ja ti zapovijedam, iziđi iz njega i unesite ga više ne ! "Tada duh povika mu potrese uvelike, i iziđe iz njega. On je postao kao jedan mrtav, tako da mnogi rekli, "On je mrtav." No Isus ga dohvati za ruku, podiže ga i on ustade. I kad je došao u kuću, upitaše ga učenici nasamo: "Zašto bismo mogli ne izgone?" On im reče: "Ova vrsta može doći od strane ništa osim molitvom i postom." Mark 9:17 - 29

U ovom slučaju jedan demon je uzrok napadaja, grčeva, pjeneći se na usta, škrgut zubi, krutost, i bacanje dječaka u vodu ili u vatru, pokušati ga ubiti. Duh je također napravio dječak biti gluhe i nijem. U tom slučaju demona je vrsta koja dolazi samo od strane molitvu i post. U oba ova slučaja teških demonizacija, Isus je zapovjedio demonima da izađu i oni poslušali.

U drugom slučaju demonizacija, u Starom zavjetu, postaje jasno da demoni mogu ući i ostaviti ljudi više puta. To je učinak osobe privremeno djeluje demonizirani, a drugi put djeluje normalno.

No, Duh Jahvin bijaše odstupio od Šaula, a jedan zao duh, od Jahve ga uznemiri. I Šaulove sluge mu reče: Evo, zao duh od Boga zbunjuje tebe. Zato neka naš gospodar zapovjedi, pa tvoje sluge, koje su pred tobom, tražiti čovjeka, koji je lukav igrač na harfu: i ona će doći do prijevoja, kad zao duh od Boga je na tebi, da će igrati s ruku, a ti ćeš biti dobro. A Šaul reče svojim slugama, osigurati mene sada čovjek koji može igrati dobro, i dovedite ga k meni. Tada je odgovorio jedan od slugu, i reče: Evo, vidio sam Jišajev sin iz Betlehema, koji je lukav u igranju, a moćni hrabar čovjek, i ratnik, i razborit u pitanjima, i lijepa osoba, i Jahve je s njim. Tada Šaul posla glasnike k Jesse, i reče: Pošalji mi David svoga sina, koji je s ovcama. A Jišaj uze pet hljebova, i bocu vina, i jedno jare i posla ih po svome sinu Davidu Šaulu. Tako David dođe k Šaulu i stupi pred njim, a on ga je volio jako, i on je postao njegov štitonoša. A Šaul posla na Jesse, govoreći: Neka David, molim te, stajati preda mnom, jer je on našao milost u mojim očima. I to dogodilo, kad zao duh od Boga je Šaula, David je uzeo harfu i svirao s ruci pa Šaul je osvježena, a bio je dobro, a zao duh odstupi od njega 1 Sam 16:14. -23

U tom slučaju Šaulu, Bog je dopustio zao duh da ide naprijed i nevolje Savao. Ponekad demon će problema Šaulu, a drugi puta da bi odstupiti od njega. To pokazuje da demoni mogu doći i otići u više navrata, u nekim situacijama. Savao je još uvijek u stanju da govore, a funkciju iako je bio demonizirani. Iako demonizirani, Šaul bio u mogućnosti razgovarati sa svojim slugama, poslati glasnika kako bi Davidu, i nije nijem, gluh, ili potpuno prevladati do točke demona govorio kroz njega, kao što je u nekim slučajevima demonizacija u Novom zavjetu.

I tako to pokazuje da osoba može imati problem s demonizacija da je lakši razini, u kojemu demon nema potpunu kontrolu ili demon je samo naslućuju i djeluju neke od vrijeme. Kada demon nije prisutan demonizirani osoba može djelovati normalno, ili čak djelomično kontrole, a demon je prisutna i aktivna. Ova vrsta slučaja je ono što je više obično naziva i danas kao koncept "napada demona". Iako kao duhovno ozbiljan, ovo je lakši stupanj demonskih kontrole nego u pojam "demonske opsjednutosti".

Postoje mnogi slučajevi spomenuti u Bibliji u kojoj pojedinosti nisu isporučeni kao na razinu demonizacija osoba doživljava.

I njegov glas je otišao po svoj ​​Siriji: i donio mu sve bolesne osobe koje su poduzete s različitim bolestima i muke, i one koji su bili demonizirani, a oni koji su mjesečar, i onih koji su paralizom, i on ih izliječi Mat. 04:24

Kad večer je došao, donijeli su mu mnogi koji su demonizirani:. On izagna duhove [svojim] riječi, a ozdravi sve koji su bolesni Matt 8:16

I na čak, kad sunce nije skup, donijeli su mu sve koji su bolesne, i one koji su bili demonizirani. I sav je grad nagrnuo k vratima. I on ozdravi mnoge su nemoćnike različitih bolesti i izgonili mnoge zloduhe i ne dopusti zlodusima govoriti, jer su ga poznavali Marka 1:32-34.

Moguće je shvatiti iz ovih stihova da mnogi ljudi su bili demonizirani, i to je bilo uobičajeno. To također može biti prikupljene od Marka 1, koji u mnogim slučajevima demoni bili dovoljno kontrole da bi mogli govoriti kroz demonizirani osobe. Također je očito da ljudi koji selo imalo pojma o tome tko u selu je demoniziran, kao što su donijeli ti ljudi Isusu za iscjeljivanje. Jednako kao u slučaju Legion demona, čini se da mnogi od demona i nisu identificirali Isusa kao Sina Božjega javno, što je razlog zašto Isus nije dopustio zlodusima da govore. To je vjerojatno zato što je to bilo više štete nego korisna, pa čak i zbunjujući za evanđeoske poruke, za poznatog demonizirani osoba koja se progla Isusa Krista da se Sin Božji. To bi moglo dobaciti neki sumnje u ljudi misli o Isusu kao što je bio na strani, da demoni su ga poznavali.

Također, demoni i činilo se da bi mogli prepoznati kršćane koji su bili sluge Božjega, i onih ljudi koji nisu bili.
"To se dogodilo da dok smo idući u mjesto molitve, rob-girl ima duh proricanja nas upoznao, koji je bio donosi njezini gospodari puno dobit za proricanje sudbine. Ova djevojka pođoše za Pavlom i nas ostale, vičući: "Ovi su ljudi sluge Boga Svevišnjega, koji su vam reći način da će spašen." Ona je zadržao ovaj za nekoliko dana. Na kraju Pavao je postao toliko uznemiren da se okrenuo i reče duhu: "U ime Isusa Krista sam ti zapovjedio da se iz nje!" U tom trenutku duh ju je ostavio. Kada vlasnici rob djevojka shvatila da je njihova nada zarađivati ​​novac je otišao, pograbiše Pavla i Silu te ih vukao na tržište u lice vlasti. "Djela 16:16-19

U tom slučaju demona nije uzrok gluhoće, ili mutavost, ili samoozljeđivanje da djevojka koja je demoniziran, nego je radio magičnu prakse kroz nju i reći bogatstvo. (Imajte na umu da t ovdje ništa ovdje da provjerava da ovaj demon mogao predvidjeti budućnost, ili da proricanje sudbine ovog djevojka je bilo drugačije u neodređenosti i točnost od vračare i danas.) Kao iu drugim slučajevima u kojima demone znao tko je Isus, u ovom slučaju demona znao istinu, da su kršćani rade za Boga dovesti ljude k spasenju. No, u ovom slučaju, djevojka je jedini koji je naveden da je govorio, a ne demona. Demon Čini se da je priopćiti ove podatke djevojka, a koji utječu na nju za oglašavanje informacija. Ništa ukazuje na to da je djevojka udari u mjeri u kojoj slučajeva onih koji su snažno bili demonizirani. Ona ne čini da su pod potpunu kontrolu demona, ali je pod utjecajem demona, tako da ovo izgleda više slučaju "napada demona". U ovoj vrsti "napada demona" Činilo se da je simbiozna odnos s demonom po izboru, u cilju dobivanja informacija od demona. To je jasan slučaj onoga što se odnosi na Stari zavjet u čarobnom prakse:

"Čovjek ili žena koja zaziva duh, ili da je čarobnjak, sigurno će se staviti na smrt: oni će ih kamenuje: njihova krv [se] na njih." Lev 20:27

"Kada si došao u zemlju koju ti Jahve, Bog tvoj, daje, nećeš naučiti raditi nakon gadosti onih naroda. Tu neće biti pronađena kod tebe [bilo] koji gradi svoga sina ili svoju kćer kako bi kroz oganj, [ili] da ljudi proslavlja proricanja, [ili] promatrač puta, ili čarobnjak ili vještica ili šarmer , ili consulter s poznatim duhovima, ili čarobnjak, ili prizivač duhova. Za sve koji rade te stvari [su] odvratno Jahvi:. I zbog tih gadosti Jahve, Bog tvoj Zar ih otjerati ispred tebe "Pnz 18:9-12

Prema Strong-a Concordance, riječ za "upoznati duh" znači "duh, duh mrtav, prizivanje duhova, koji priziva mrtve jedan, jedan s poznatim duh". Ako netko smatra da su zapravo demoni duhovi mrtvih divova (Nefili), a zatim ga čini puno smisla da se demoni koji se pozivaju na tu kao "duh, duh mrtve jedan". A to je zabranjeno za Božji narod da "dočarati duh mrtav jedan", ili da imaju bilo kakve veze s demonom, a kamoli upoznati, steći poznavanje, s jednim. Pojam ovdje za "čarobnjak" je "onaj tko je upoznat duh" i "prizivač duhova". Pojam "prizivač duhova" također se koristi, a sve su to sinonimi uvjetima koji se odnose na sve koji imaju veze s demonom. To je ono što proricanje sudbine djevojka u Djelima bio događaj, ona je odnos s poznatim demon duh, te da joj je dao informacije demon koji ju čini se da su čarobni znanja.

Važno je napomenuti kako kršćani rješava situaciju. U Starom zavjetu Bog je rekao da je bilo Izraelci koji su upoznati duha, odnos s demona, koji se činio čarobno, su se kamenuje. Ali u Novom zavjetu, Pavao jednostavno baci demona iz djevojke koja je iritantan im tako da ih nakon oko. To bi joj oslobođeni uzeti u obzir ono što je značilo da "Ovi su ljudi sluge Boga Svevišnjega, koji su vam reći način da se spremaju" bez demonskog utjecaja na njezin um. I ona je također uzeti u obzir da Pavao, koji je vjerovao Evanđelju da je propovijedanje, imao snage s njim, sila koja je jača od demonskih snaga je bio upoznat s, dovoljno sile demona ju je ostaviti. Ovaj rob-djevojka se činilo da su uvalili u taj odnos s demona kako bi se dobio nadnaravne moći informacija otkrila joj, kako bi mogla reći ljudi bogatstva. Ali došla licem u lice s većim nadnaravne snage, snaga Božja naći u onima koji su prihvatili Evanđelje, koji je bio moćniji od demona je ona poznata. Nadam se da ovo joj je pomogla da preispitamo ono što je bio događaj, Evanđelje je čula Pavla propovijedanje, i izgleda da Boga kao najveće snage, iako Biblija ne navodi. No, lijevanje demona iz nje definitivno joj je dao natrag sposobnost da misle stvari kroz bez demona koji utječu na njezinu odluke. Dok je ona bila govoreći: "Ovi su ljudi sluge Boga Svevišnjega, koji su vam reći način biti spašen", ona sama nije čini se da doista vjerujem u to, ali je rekao to pod utjecajem demona. Demon znao je ovo istina, i pod utjecajem joj to reći, ali ona je u puno boljoj poziciji da odlučite vjeruju da sama jednom demon više nije bio prisutan na njezin utjecaj.

Tu je još jedan slučaj u kojem demonizirani čovjek, koji kao da se u "posjed" razini, je demon koji je znao tko je Isus Krist je bio, a tko je Pavao. Demon činilo da zna tko je kršćanski i zapravo imao ovlasti da ga izbace iz čovjeka, a tko nije kršćanin i nije imao ovlasti da je Isus Krist daruje svim vjernicima u njega.

Tada neke od skitnica Židova, egzorcista, je na njih pozvati na one koji imahu zle duhove ime Gospodina Isusa, govoreći: Mi vam preklinjati Isusom koga Pavao propovijeda. A bilo je sedam sinova [jedan] Sceva, Židov, [i] glavari svećenički, koja je tako. I Zli im duh odvrati i reče: Isusa poznajem i Pavla znam, ali koji su vi i čovjek u kome bijaše zli duh, nasrnu na njih, te ih pobijedili, i pobijedio ih, tako da su pobjegli iz? toj kući goli i izranjeni. Djela 19:13-16

U ovom slučaju demona bio svjestan tko je bio kršćanin s ovlasti da ga baci van, a tko nije. U tom slučaju demona činilo da uzrokuje demonizirani čovjek ima toliku snagu da je svladao 7 muškaraca i pobjegao iz kuće goli i izranjeni. Kao u slučaju Legije, u kojoj demonizirani čovjek razbio lanac je bio vezan s, u ovom slučaju i demonizirani čovjek je imao veliku snagu. No, u ovom slučaju, demonizirani čovjek se činilo da imaju samo jednog demona, a ne tisuće njih. To znači da ono što demoni mogu učiniti u utječe demonizirani osoba ne ovisi o njihovu broju, nego da ono što demoni, inherentno im omogućuje da imaju određene sposobnosti i načine na koje oni mogu utjecati na osobu.

Još jedna stvar koja čini da demoni uzrok je simptome paranoje.
Isus je rekao: "Nije li vam Mojsije dao Zakon, i [još uvijek] nitko od vas ne vrši Zakona? Zašto ići ćete o meni ubiti "," narod i reče: Ti si demon: Tko traži da te ubije "Ivan 7:20-21

U ovom slučaju Isus je rekao otvoreno da su ljudi pokušava ga ubiti, a ljudi oko njega je reagirao rekavši kako "je demon". Ako čovjek hodao okolo govoreći danas ljudi su pokušavali da ga ubiju, su se da mu se, normalan odgovor će biti za ljude da kažu kako je bio "paranoidne" ili "ludi". Ono što malo ljudi će misliti da kažem da ga je "imate demona". Ipak, u danima Isusove, čini se da je paranoja sinonim vlasništvo demona. Osim tobožnji paranoičan da neki ljudi, Isus je također očito funkcionira normalno i na druge načine. To pokazuje da su ljudi tada je shvatio da osoba koja je demoniziran nisu nužno biti pod punom kontrolom demona, ali samo djelomično mogao biti pod utjecajem jednog. Tako je, iako je Isus činio uglavnom u redu, jedan paranoidni izgledom komentar vodio ih je reći je demona. Ljudi tada bili svjesni da je demonizacija nije uvijek slučaj demona s full-puhano kontrolu nad osobom. Dakle, Biblija uči postoje različite razine demonizacija je to moguće, te da paranoja može biti uzrokovana zlodusima.

To je na isti način kao i demoni uzrokuju ludilo, i Isus je također optužen da je lud i da demona. "Mnogi od njih su govorili:" On je demon i lud. Zašto slušati njega? "(Ivan 10:20) Kao što su neki ljudi smatrali Isus bio lud, oni su mislili da je demon. To je kao čovjek demonizirani od strane "Legion", čije je ponašanje dok je bio lud demoniziraju. No, opet tu je nivo razina ovdje. Isus je očito funkcionira kao normalna zdrava osoba, ali zbog nekih stvari koje je rekao ili učinio je mislio da se ludo i stoga imaju demona. No, u slučaju Legion, čovjek je očito potpuno potpuno lud za najvećem stupnju. Dakle, Biblija uči da demon može izazvati malo ludosti ili puno ludila, a to može varirati u skladu s razinom demonizacija.

U svakom slučaju, na način da se riješi problem je da se baci van demona, kao čovjek s "Legion" demona znatno promijenila nakon što je Isus baci demone iz njega.
"A ljudi iziđoše vidjeti što se dogodilo, i došao Isusu i nađoše čovjeka iz kojega bijahu izašli zlodusi, sjedi do nogu Isusovih, obučen i zdrave pameti: i oni su se bojali. Zatim oni koji su vidjeli što se dogodilo rekao drugima kako demonizirani čovjek je ozdravila. "Nakon demoni napustio čovjek, on je ozdravio da ponovno bude u svojoj" zdravoj pameti ". A isto rješenje nalazi se u slučajevima fizičkog utječe na demona, "Isus je vozio iz demona koji je bio nijem. Kada demon napustio, čovjek koji je bio nijemi govorio, a gužva je bila izvan sebe. "Luka 11:14-15

Biblija opisuje mnoge varijacije koje su moguće sa demonizacija:
1. Osoba može biti pod potpunu kontrolu nad demona ("posjed"), ili samo pod utjecajem demona ("ugnjetavanja")
2. Demon može doći u ili ostaviti demonizirani osoba po volji (kao što su Šaul).
3. Oni pod utjecajem demona ("potlačenih") možete pronaći ovo da se više prisilnom i muče (kao što su Šaul, ili slučaj Legion) ili to može biti više dobrovoljnih simbiotskog odnosa (kao što je rob-djevojka u Djelima, ili u drugim slučajeva poznatih duhova, prizivanje duhova, čarobnjaštvo, bilo kakav odnos s tim "mrtav" duhova.)
4. Demon može uzrokovati demonizirani osoba fizički iskustva: mutavost, gluhoća, napadaji, razne bolesti, a uzrok veliku snagu.
5. Demon može uzrokovati demonizirani osoba mentalno iskustvo: ludost, da iz svoje pravo srce, paranoje, self-šteti ponašanje, suicidalno ponašanje, self-ponižavajuće ponašanje, i samoizolacije.
6. Demon nekako može reći, ako je Duh Sveti prisutan, znajući oni koji su kršćanski vjernici s vlasti da ih izgone, i znajući tko je Isus Krist. Demon se može podijeliti ove podatke s demonizirani osobe.
7. Demon može dijeliti informacije s drugim demonizirani osoba, netko tko je odabir da imaju magičnu odnos s demonom, reći bogatstva i slično.


Kako demonizacija posao?

Čovjek se sastoji od nekoliko dijelova: tijelo, duh koji daje život tijelu, a duša za koju se smatra da se od srca, volje i uma. Isus je govorio o nekim od ovih dijelova u Marku 12:30,

, and with all thy strength : this [is] the first commandment. A ti ćeš Ljubi Gospodina Boga svojega svim srcem svojim, i svom dušom svojom, i svim umom svojim, i sve snage svoje!: Ovo [je] prva zapovijed.

To su dijelovi osoba koja aktivno može ljubiti Boga, s kojim osoba ima izbor ljubiti Boga ili ne. Duša se obično misli da se sastoji od "um, volja i emocije", koje odgovaraju u ovom ajetu je "um, snagu i srce", odnosno.

Kada ljudi razmišljaju o "opsjednutosti" često pretpostavljaju da je to tijelo osobe koja demon ulazi, te se izbacuje u. Međutim, to stvarno ne puno smisla. Demon je besmrtan bestjelesan duha. Ako demon mogao izravno ući tijelo, zašto onda ne uđu mrtvih tijela i dovedi ih natrag u život, ih posjeduju? Koliko zla kao što to rade, čini se iz razloga što demoni ne posjeduju mrtva tijela, jer oni ne mogu. I u ovom je očito da to nije tijelo osobe koja se posjeduju demona na prvom mjestu, kao demona ne može ući, osim ako je osoba živa.

Kao što smo pokriveni u prethodnom poglavlju, Bog je stvorio Adama tijelo, tada udahnuo duh (dah života) u Adama, a Adam samo jednom imao i tijelo i duh nije postao "živa duša". (Post 2,7) osoba već ima duha, i demon je duh. U duhovnoj dimenziji čini se kao demon duh više nije mogao ući u ljudski duh od jedne čvrste objekt mogao unijeti drugu čvrsti oslonac. Kao dvije kuglice na bazen stol, čini se 2 duhovi će se sudaraju i odbijaju jedni od drugih, od kojih svaki ima svoje definirane čvrstoću i odvojenosti. I tako, ako duhovi ostaju zasebno definirane u duhovnoj dimenziji, onda demon ne može ući osobe duh. I duh demon ne ulazi u tijelo izravno, kao demoni ne mogu ući u mrtva tijela. Stoga se mogućnost ostaje, a to je da demon zapravo mora ući i izaći iz "žive duše" osobe. Daleko više nego samo tijelo, Bog smatra da ljudi prije svega živjeti duše, kao što je "čovjek postao živa duša '. I tako je živa duša osobe koja demon dolazi u ili izlazi iz koje je osoba um, će (ili snage) i emocija (ili srce).

Ne bojte se onih koji ubijaju tijelo, ali ne mogu ubiti dušu:. Bojte se više onoga koji može i dušu i tijelo pogubiti u paklu Matt 10:28

Prema Bibliji, čovjek nije primarno tijelo koje se događa ima živa duša, već osoba koja je prije svega žive duše što se događa da imaju tijelo. Razumijevanje da Bog smatra da čovjek prvenstveno biti živa duša, ima smisla, i nema kontradikcije kada Biblija govori o demonima se u čovjeka ili izlazi iz čovjeka. To je zato što Biblijski čovjek (muško ili žensko) je u prvom redu "žive duše", i to "živa duša" je osoba koja demon ide u ili izvan.

Demon ulazi u um, srce, ili će neke osobe (živa duša) i kroz um, misli, srce, emocije, te će osobe, demon je u mogućnosti da djeluje izvan simptomi demonizacije. Kada je u pitanju komunikacija s poznatim duh, demon djeluje izravno s osobom um i misli, iz unutrašnjosti uma. Kada je u pitanju ludilo, demon uzrokuje ludilo od osobe u um. To je lakše razumjeti nego što demona čini u uzrokuje fizičko oboljenje. Kada je riječ o više tjelesne simptome, nekako demona koristi osobe će, iz unutrašnjosti će utjecati na tijelo. Nekako u preuzimanju će osobe, demon može uzrokovati bolesti kao što su nadnaravne gluhoća, mutavost, napadaji, ili veliku snagu. Gluhoća, mutavost i seizures ne činiti se biti sasvim kao nadnaravno kao veliku snagu. To je lakše razumjeti demona mogli uzrokovati da se netko ne govorimo, ili imati napadaje jednostavno manipulacija osobe obična volje. To je teže razumjeti kako demon može uzrokovati veliku snagu kroz manipulaciju osobe obična volje. However, the human body is capable of feats of great strength if a person has an adrenaline rush. A demon causing great strength may stem from the demon manipulating a person's willpower, thoughts, and emotions, to affect the person's body to have a large adrenaline rush, allowing great strength for a time.

Here is an excerpt from “How Can Adrenaline Help You Lift a 3,500 Pound Car?” by Josh Clark of HowStuffWorks.com
In 1982, in Lawrenceville, Ga., Angela Cavallo lifted a 1964 Chevrolet Impala from her son, Tony, after it fell off the jacks that had held it up while he worked underneath the car. Mrs. Cavallo lifted the car high enough and long enough for two neighbors to replace the jacks and pull Tony from beneath the car.
Marie “Bootsy” Payton was cutting her lawn in High Island, Texas, when her riding mower got away from her. Payton's young granddaughter, Evie, tried to stop the mower, but was knocked underneath the still-running machine. Payton reached the mower and easily tossed it off her granddaughter, limiting Evie's injuries to four severed toes. Curious, Payton later tried to lift the mower again and found she couldn't move it.
What accounts for feats of superhuman strength like these? Are they glimpses into the lives of superheroes' alter egos? Or are all of us imbued with amazing strength?
Although well-documented when they do occur, feats of hysterical strength — unnatural and amazing strength tapped during high-stress situations — are not recognized by medical science. This is largely due to the problem of gathering evidence: Instances like these come about without warning, and to reproduce these situations in a clinical setting would be unethical and dangerous. But we are aware of the effects of adrenaline, a hormone shown to increase strength to amazing degrees for short periods of time.”

Through manipulating the mind, emotions, and will of a person so that they have a large adrenaline rush, a demon might be able to cause the demonized person to break chains, or be able to fight against 7 men and prevail.

It also might be difficult to understand how a demon could cause deafness, using the mind, will, or emotions of a person. But something which fits this description still exists, and might be what is referred to today as “psychogenic deafness”.
“ Hearing loss or impairment caused by a mental or emotional disorder or trauma and having no evidence of an organic cause.” – American Heritage Medical Dictionary
Altogether it is conceivable that demons work through the mind, will, and emotions of a demonized person to be able to produce bodily ailments, as well as the mental or psychological ailments like insanity, paranoia, and associated insane behavior.

Then there is a demonized person who has the sort of relationship that may fit the description of having a familiar spirit, wizardry, fortune-telling, necromancy and other magical practices. How does a demon cause a demonized person to seem to have magical, or psychic, powers?

“When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”
Luke 11:24-26

Also Jesus says in, “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.” Matt 12:43-45

One thing we can learn from these verses is that demons can communicate with each other while outside of a person. This is seen in that 1 demon can communicate with 7 more demons while outside of any person, and convince them to come back with him to the person it left.
We also have covered that a demon can choose to leave and return to a demonized person when it wants to. If a person seems to be revealing psychic knowledge that they could not have known about another person, in fortune telling, this may be part of how it works. The demon may leave the demonized person and talk to other demons, or even go into the person asking for a psychic reading, in order to gather information. Then the demon goes back into the demonized psychic, and relays the information. Presto, it's “magic”. But actually, it's just demons, and this sort of magic is simply demons doing things demons can do.

Along these lines, it is important to note that demons are immortal spirits, who have been around since the flood. It is therefore easy for a demon to potentially talk to other demons who might have known or demonized relatives of a person, even dead relatives. It's also possible that the same demon who is demonizing a person might have also demonized their grandparent, etc. In this way demons can know private or personal information about people who are dead. And a demon can relay that information to a demonized person who “talks to the dead”, that in turn may amaze an audience by relaying information that only a dead relative would know. But in fact, not only the dead relative, but also a demon who knew the dead relative, could know this information. In fact a demonized psychic of this sort is not speaking to the ghost of a dead relative for information, but rather is speaking to a demon who has gathered information about the dead relative.

Besides impersonating dead relatives, demons also will claim to be famous people from history, gods, aliens, etc. It may be this is how idol worship came about: demons claimed to be gods, and influenced people to depict how they claimed to look in the form of an idol.

“What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons.” 1 Cor 10:19-21

In any case, the Bible specifies that people actually worshipped demons when they worshipped idols. But it may be that demons communicated to demonized people with familiar spirits, claimed to be gods, and influenced people to start making idols and worshipping them. It would make some sense that demons, lacking and missing a body, might have seen this as a way to have a bodily representation, by the contrived body of an idol.


Can demons do all the things that fallen angels can do?

Fallen angels have something along the lines of a spirit body, but demons are bodiless spirits. Demons used to have mortal physical bodies, and those mortal bodies died before the Flood.
This seems to be a key difference between what fallen angels can do and what demons can do. The spirit bodies and potential physical presence of fallen angels seems to allow for them to do many things which are described in the Bible, like causing false dreams and Visions, and even appearing physically as men. But the Bible never describes demons being able to do these things, but rather only describes demons working through people or animals. The Bible does not describe demons causing dreams or Visions. Though it seems as dreams are a matter of the mind, that demons may be able to cause dreams. But demons cannot physically manifest, and only work through a living soul. (A demon could not move a chair, bend a spoon, cause a mass sighting of a UFO, or multiple people to see a ghost, sit on someone putting pressure on their chest, leave Bigfoot tracks on the ground, etc.) A demon can only have a physical presence by getting in a living soul and then gaining control over an animal or person. Then a demon could move a chair, bend a spoon, etc., by causing a demonized person or animal's body to manually physically do such things. A demon can affect a person's body only from the inside out, working through their mind, will, and emotions (living soul). So the answer is No, a demon cannot do all the things that a fallen angel can do. They cannot manifest physically in a bodily form, and they cannot cause Visions, though they may be able to cause dreams in a demonized person.

How does a person become demonized?

It is difficult to say with certainty, as some cases are more voluntary than others. But in cases in which the demonization seems more involuntary, the Bible does seem to describe what happens.

Luke 11:20-26, “But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you. “When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe. But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armor in which the man trusted and divides up the spoils. He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me, scatters. When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to my house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”

One interesting thing to note in this passage is that the demon considers the house to be his, in saying “my house”. There are a couple different ways to interpret this passage, but let's define the strong man as a person who is guarded against demonization. And let's say the demon is the attacker, and once a demon has prevailed, he considers the house to be his. The person has armor that they depend on to keep them safe, and have to keep a guard up. But if a demon is stronger than their armor, the demon might come in and overpower the person, and they become demonized. Then the demon will try to take away the armor of the demonized man, and divide up the possessions of the demonized man. Also, the demon may divide up the task of demonizing the man, by going and getting 7 more demons to join him in inhabiting that man.

So how does the demon overpower the man who is guarded with armor, and get into his house? The Bible does give some indication of how demonization begins.
“ Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: neither give place to the devil. Eph 4:26-27

The word here for “give” means to “give or grant” as a voluntary gift. The word for “place” here means a room (like in a house) or a habited space. The word here for “neither” has the distinct implication of “those which are of the same kind or which are part of one whole”.
What this means is that if you are angry and sin because of it, or let a new day begin while still angry, then in this you are also choosing to give space, a room, to the devil, or his demons. People may not realize it when they do this, but these actions are all parts of one whole. And in this people give a room to the devil, and a room could be in a person's house, and it could be a demon that works for Satan who goes into that room, and stays there. This is a description of how demonization can begin. And this describes that in being angry and sinning, staying angry, a person actually in this is choosing to open up the door of their house, forsake their guard and armor, and give a demon room for entry. And once a demon gets inside, overpowering the person who has let their guard down, then that demon will try to take away all their armor, take their possessions, and will come to consider the house to be their own, as Jesus described.

Anger is just one example used here of how this happens, but is it the only thing that could allow a demon entry? Anger (or wrath) is mentioned as a “work of the flesh”, and it seems likely that any work of the flesh, in which sin takes place, or is held on to over time, may also give room to a demon.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Gal 5:19-21

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: Col 3:5

And Eph 4 from above continues, Eph 4:28-32
Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with [his] hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

So it seems like there are many sinful things, works of the flesh, which are listed along with anger, and these also may give demons room. This may be another meaning of the verse, “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Gal 6:8
If a person is sinning, whether by committing a sin in anger, or adultery or idolatry etc, or holding onto sinful things inside like anger, bitterness, hatred, etc. this is what opens a door up for demons to gain entry, get a room, and oppress someone. This seems to be true whether the person is not a Christian, or is a Christian.

It is important to note that Eph 4 “ neither give place to the devil ” was not directed at the unsaved, but directed at Christians. Though if this is how demons gain entry, the process would seem to be the same for everyone, Christian or not. When Jesus spoke of a strong man guarding his house with armor, this also seems to be directed at everyone, including Christians. The armor here may refer to choosing to not sin, though everyone does at times to some extent.
However, Jesus also said, “ He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me, scatters” . The best protection and armor against demons getting into your house, is to be with Jesus Christ and to accept Him as your Lord and Savior. Next, have on the full armor of God (Eph 6), and be guarding your house against invasion, and be walking in the Spirit and sowing to the Spirit, not the flesh.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Gal 5:22-23

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel
Eph 6:11-19

A Christian can be oppressed by demons, though the demonization reaching the level of possession seems unlikely because a Christian has the armor of God to at least some extent. And a Christian also has the authority to cast a demon out, should any break through their guard. Another guard against demonization in a Christian is to pray daily, confessing their sins, and asking for forgiveness of sins and cleansing from all unrighteousness.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 Jn 1:5-10

Additionally, the Holy Spirit is inside the heart of a born-again Christian (Gal 4:6), and there is a circumcision of the person's heart by the Holy Spirit (Rom 2:29). God writes his laws upon the Christian's heart, and their mind. (Heb 10:16-17). In this, the heart, and the mind to some extent, of a born-again Christian are different and changed from those of an unsaved person. And the peace of God, a fruit of the Holy Spirit, guards the heart and mind of a Christian.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phl 4:7
In all this, it seems all the more difficult for a Christian to reach a “possession” level of demonization, even though Eph 4 indicates that “oppression” is possible.

A Christian under demonic oppression has all the authority they need, in the power of Jesus Christ, and the power of God through the Holy Spirit of Jesus, to command a demon to get out and stay out, and refuse to let the demon influence them any longer. But the Christian person must choose this by his or her own free will. God does not violate our free will, and the Christian must choose of their free will to kick the demon out of their self, and to repent of whatever sinful work of the flesh opened the door to let the demon get in their house in the first place.

It is arguable that most of the demons in a person do automatically flee a person when or after they become a Christian, without being cast out, as part of the process of repentance and healing. “Submit yourselves then to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

Yet I think stragglers are possible. There may be generational curses, the result of sins of ancestors going back to the immediate 3rd or 4th generations (Ex 20:5). These curses can be broken by Jesus Christ, and demons associated with them may flee or be cast out. There also may be demons that specialize in harassing or tempting a person in areas of sin they have strong problems with, like certain addictions. In this a demon may have taken over a room in the house, fortifying it, and the battle to regain the space could be more difficult. This concept of a fortified area is seen the Biblical term “strong hold”. But there is hope,

For though we walk in flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds ; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Cor 10:3-5

The weapons of our warfare are mighty to pull down strongholds, and our most prominent weapon is the Word of God, which is the sword of the Spirit, the Scriptures, the Bible. This is very fitting with the second meaning of a “strong hold” , which is, “of the arguments and reasonings by which a disputant endeavours to fortify his opinion and defend it against his opponent”. Often the battle with demonic oppression is in the mind, and the best weapon to use against excuses and false reasoning which hold onto sin, is with the Word of God. And also we have the authority Jesus Christ gave believers in Him to cast out demons. Praise Jesus!

So this cleaning house can be a gradual process for the new Christian, but also as the Christian repents of more sin, and asks for forgiveness, and draws near to God, demons may flee, without having to be cast out.


Does this mean that any sinful thought, feeling, or action a person has is caused by a demon?

No, the sinful nature and the flesh, and a person's own heart and mind, are all potential sources of sinful thoughts, feelings, desires, and actions. These are plenty enough to put a person into internal conflict, without any demonization being involved.

I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. Gal 5:16-17

For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Rom 7:14-25, 8:1-14

Demonization is more likely to be present where there seems to be symptoms of demonization, for instance: a loss of a person being in their “right mind”, symptoms of insanity (to a lesser or greater degree), habitual or repetitive sin like sinful addictions, or self-perception of a loss of self-control.

And temptations also can come from the flesh and sinful nature, even in Christians, without a demon being the cause.
Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first. And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, [even] as Christ Jesus. Gal 4:13-14

From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members ? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. James 4:1-10

If indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Eph 4:21-24

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified… No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Cor 9:24-27, 10:13

Jesus Christ gives Christians the ability to learn to walk in and according to the Spirit, in a process of sanctification, and through His power to overcome our flesh, sinful nature, and temptations, having been given a new nature in Him.

Ultimately, we Christians and our bodies belong to God. A demon cannot “own” or “possess” us, as truly we are owned or possessed by God, purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ. The Bible says in 1 Cor 6:19-20, ” What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” Christians are owned by God, and demons will be evicted by the true owner, Jesus Christ.

The people to be truly concerned about when it comes to demonization are those who are not Christians, who do not have the armor of God, nor the Holy Spirit, and do not have the authority to cast out demons in Jesus Christ's name. People today may fair no better than the demonized people in the New Testament, who Jesus helped and healed by casting demons out of them. If sin leads to oppression, once they have reached an “oppressed” level of demonization, they are more at risk for reaching the “possessed” level. Jesus and His disciples cast out demons many times in the New Testament. Jesus and His disciples were the Deliverance ministers and exorcists at that time, helping people who were demonized by casting out the demons. Jesus said those who believed in Him would also cast out demons.

“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” Mark 16:16-18

There is no doubt that driving out demons is just as valid a Christian ministry today as it ever was. It is a needed ministry, needed by the hurting people who are demonized today. Jesus wants the church today, the body of Christ, to practice deliverance ministry, as He did, and help these people.
