Can a Christian be demon possessed?

I recently was involved in a deliverance with a close friend whom I serve and minister with. I would with a doubt say he was a Christian. Born again, bible believing christian. It was real possession, and true deliverance, thanks be to God.
The two scriptures I am studying is, 1) when Jesus tells Peter, "get behind me satan." and 2) Luke 22:3 when satan enters Judas?

Our God is a jealous God, He will not allow demons to inhabit someone that He has claim over. He can have nothing to do with them.

I do not think that is correct. Didn't Jesus cast out demons? Some references:

"How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with The Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him." (Acts 10:38)
"And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity" (Luke 13:11-12 )
"Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and He healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw." (Matthew 12:22)
"And when He went forth to land, there met Him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs ... Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind" (Luke 8:27,35 )
"As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a dumb man possessed with a devil. And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake" (Matthew 9:32-33)

I do not believe anyone should be offended when being prayed for against demonic possession of any kind. Jesus obviously did so.

Blessings!
