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?

To serve

Dear Anthony:

Praise be to God for your deliverance! May you always continue to abide in Him and do good works for the building up of His kingdom.

Another manner of possession that many people do not think about is the use of fortune teller,mediums, horoscopes, etc. This is not the work of God or a gift as many think. This exclusively belongs to the Devil so that he can take away as many people as possible from God. People are sometimes gullible when they suffer a loss of a loved one and go looking to communicate with them after death. The devil, being a deceiver and liar enters the body of the medium and acts as the one who died, to make the person seeking believe, thus taking away that person from believing in the power of God. That is why this is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord that people should consult the spirits of the dead for advice instead of Him.

This is form of possession is given so much attention even in of TV programs (which we all should write the networks about). It promotes darkness, not the true light of God. The day that we start to work to try to eliminate these things, then the devil will start to flee, until then, at our idleness, he is covering quite a bit of territory and gaining more and more people for his little kingdom of fire.

There is alot of money making here. The companies that make tarot cards, ouije boards, papers and magazines that publish horoscopes, movies that raise the dead... all these things we can do something about to try to stop. But do we? Then, without us trying to stop these things, are we really serving God? We fight with each other here on this site to defend our faiths, but what are we doing outside of here to defend our God?

Who are we serving?

Yours in Christ,

Yours in Christ,
