THE BLOOD OF JESUS CLEANSES YOU FROM ALL SIN AND GUILT (1 JOHN 1:7). JESUS IS THE DELIVERER!!
There are NO Scriptures that say "Christians" CAN or CANNOT have Demons!
Matter of fact, the word Christian(s) only appears THREE times in the entire Bible!
CHRISTIANS CAN HAVE ANYTHING THEY WANT, AND GET MANY THINGS THEY DON'T WANT!
Many BELIEVERS in the Bible had demons. Are you a BELIEVER?
There are NO Scriptures that say UNSAVED people CAN or CANNOT have demons, or that your demons leave when you get Saved. So who has demons? EVERYONE!!
Mark 16:17 in the Bible says THOSE THAT BELIEVE SHALL CAST OUT DEMONS.
That means ALL Believers -- MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN!
Demons are anything that CONTROLS, HARASSES, TORMENTS, or DRIVES you to do things you ought not to do or wish you didn't do.
Temper, depression, fear, sickness, suicidal, homosexual, rejected, obese, to mention a few, are demons. They are INSIDE of you.
We are body, soul, and Spirit. The demons get IN our body and cause sickness. Demons are the reason obese people cannot keep the weight off in many cases. YOU CANNOT DIET A DEMON AWAY. It must be cast OUT in the name of JESUS.
The demons get IN our soul (that's your mind, will, and emotions). You think, do, and act in a way you shouldn't and wish you didn't.
Demons CANNOT get into your Spirit though. That is where JESUS resides. This is how Christians CAN and DO have demons. However, the demons SURROUND your Spirit so you cannot do the things you ought to do, like pray, read the Bible, study.
Clasp your two hands together tightly interlocking your fingers. Squeeze hard. Nothing can get in your palms, not even air. This is what the demons do to your SPIRIT, the place where Jesus and the Holy Spirit are. DELIVERANCE releases these demons, causing you to grow closer to Jesus. Obviously there are Christians who are not yet totally "clenched" by the demons, but it is their goal.
In the event you are very critical of the DELIVERANCE message, or especially if you have a mocking demon (making fun of JESUS CHRIST and the Miracle of DELIVERANCE), there is a good chance that Psalm 109, Isaiah 54:17, and many other like Scriptures will take effect on you. I have seen it happen to many. You reap what you sow, but maybe, just maybe, if you sincerely ask JESUS to forgive you, there may be a chance of the judgment of God not falling on you.
To become a Christian, Romans 10:9 says, "Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that JESUS is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." You must believe JESUS is the Son of God, that He died for your sins, and that you are sorry for and repent of your sins.
Say this prayer, but be sincere -
"Father, in JESUS' name I ask you to forgive me of all my sins. I repent Lord. Come into my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. With your help, I will "stop sinning" (John 5:14). Amen."
Everyone involved with DELIVERANCE cast demons OUT of CHRISTIANS. If you cast demons out of non-Believers, they could not keep the demons out because JESUS is not Lord of their life. If you only used common sense, it should persuade you. The demons are stronger than common sense though. You will not believe how much your eyes will be opened after just one DELIVERANCE session. I use to take a before and after photograph of Christians who came to us for help. Just ONE DELIVERANCE session shows on their face, and I have the photos to prove it. I stopped taking pictures when I realized that some would not even believe that piece of evidence.
If a person does not believe in hell, does it change the fact? If a person does not believe in Speaking in TONGUES, does it change the fact? If you don't believe demons are INSIDE of you, it doesn't change the fact. Remember the "once I was blind but now I see" guy in the Bible (John 9:25)? The religious demons would not believe him or his parents. He was, however, set free.
JESUS came to set the captives free and to destroy the works of the devil. Do you want to be free, or would you prefer that the demons you don't think you have keep you in bondage? You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. There was a time when I thought I did not have demons too. However, I prayed, "IF I have any demons, I want to get rid of them". I wasn't even convinced about the demons, but my heart was right. JESUS did indeed set me free, just as He wants to set everyone free (after they get saved).
It was not automatic. I had to DO something. That was to submit to DELIVERANCE. When you got saved, you had to DO something. It was not automatic. I had a ton of demons, most of which had to do with my religious background. It should be our goal to get rid of all the demons we are aware of.
Paul's thorn IN the flesh was a demon. Paul said so!
The devil entered INTO Judas.
JESUS told Peter, "get behind me, satan" because the devil got INTO Peter.
Ananias and Sapphira were Believers.
The woman with the ISSUE OF BLOOD was a Believer.
The woman who was bowed over "all these years" was a Believer.
MARY MAGDALENE - Mary was a Believer, and had demons cast OUT of her. Mark 16:9 "Now when [JESUS] was risen early the first [day] of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, OUT of whom He had cast seven demons." Luke 8:2 "And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, OUT of whom went seven demons,". OTHER women also got some DELIVERANCE!
Mark 7:21-23, JESUS speaking - "For from WITHIN...", then He mentions a bunch of demons INSIDE. I am here to tell you by personal experience that FEW accept the reality of demons INSIDE, even though JESUS said it. Then they say, "well, they are not demons, that's their personality." It is indeed THEIR personality. But it is the DEMON's personality. Do you have a job? What do you do all day at that job? The demons also have a job. They also do it all day. A lying demon makes you lie. A fear demon makes you afraid. A temper demon makes you have a temper. A suicide demon makes you want to kill yourself. (If you thought about killing yourself, the demon is there. They are good at their job, but sometimes they would rather torment you with the idea for years before they perform their job.)
Before you got Saved, you didn't believe it. Before you spoke in TONGUES, you didn't believe it. (Some of you still don't believe it.) Look what you missed all those years. Well, DELIVERANCE is another gift or blessing from God to make our life down here a little better. Of the thousands and thousands of Christians who had many, many demons cast OUT of them, you could never convince them they never really had demons.
DELIVERANCE was removed from the church by the devil about 300 years after JESUS rose from the dead. No wonder so many people have not heard about it.

THERE IS NO HATE, MALICE, RACISM, ETC. ON THIS SITE. THESE ARE SINS IN THE EYES OF GOD, AND ARE ALSO DEMONS. THE BIBLE MAKES IT CLEAR THAT SIN CANNOT GET INTO HEAVEN.
