Can a Christian be demon possessed?

Actsnow's picture

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?

Christians & demon possession

Nate,

Luke 13:16 "So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound--think of it--for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?" (NKJV)

More verses like this confirm that the devil can bind one physically, even Christians, but the devil cannot "possess" a true believer...1 John 4:4 says, "...greater is he (Holy Spirit) that is in you than he (devil) that is in the world."

Christians can be "oppressed" by the demons but not "possessed" by them.

I pray this helps!

"Without hearing & understanding the bad news, the world greatly underestimates how good the Good News is."
