ok - Most will disagree here I am sure - but I have been called to healing and deliverance ministry and yes I believe christians can be both - oppressed by a demon - demons can attach themselves to a born again believer - and - a born again believer - who has fallen of the narrow path and then has chosen the wide path towards distruction can and most likely will become Demonized.
I am not sure the word Demon Possessed is the right word - it is actually one being either oppressed - or demonized by demon spirits.
When one comes to this point of becoming demonized - there are completely controled by the demon and yes at this point If one has not received deliverance and refuses deliverance there is a point in time I believe the Holy Spirits Presence shall have left the believer.
Paul says in the end days some will - DEPART FROM THE FAITH - well one can not depart if one has never first believed - only a believer can depart - Paul goes on to tell Timothy - and they will begin to follow after doctrines of - DEMONS! These are believer Paul is speaking of here and Jesus says the same thing in Matthew 24 - many will fall away.
Paul speaks of the great aposasty - in 2 Thessalonians 2
WE SAW MANY CHRISTIANS COME TO LAKELAND - one couple there with their son for prayer for healing I knew and believe they love the Lord and have given him all the praise and glory for his progressive healing he has received - prior to going with him to Lakeland. I cried when I saw him there.
- break her for a second - people need to wait upon the Lord -
Ok back to what I was saying - many were imparted the Kundalini spirit and this is in my opinion one of the most controling invasive spirit I have ever seen with my own eyes other than the spirit of death -and yes I believe it does demonize people and control much of their body and mind.
People that have expieranced this spirit if you watch and pay close attention - they are very defensive of all the leaders who operate in this spirit - and I believe this spirit will lead many to distruction.
When infected with this type of spirit - one truely needs radical deliverance.
So demon spirits if given an open door can and will attact our mind or our body with sickness and diesease - it can make us do things we have no control over.
So yes I do know and believe christians can be demonized and at some point in their lives if not healed and delivered - the demon spirit can begin to control them.Many who are demonized will fall away.
Example - from born again christians becoming demonized. Giving access to demons -
Some will say foolishness - but the Harry Potter Movies has opend doors for demons - young and old alike - the Avitar Movie - sexual immorality -
Laying on of hands from one who walks in darkness gives way for demons - yes I do believe in transfer of demons - IF we have left ourselves un-procted -
Guided visualization - Emptying our Minds -playing with the occult - like horoscopes - weggi boards - having a fortune teller tell your fortune - all fun and games - not! - Anger - unforgiveness - these are just some I can think of.
