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?

First off, for what its worth, I understand KJT's perspective. This actually sheds a different light on the topic of Christians and demon possession... that being...

How much do we consider "demon possession" or being tempted by the devil, and its merely self-will? When Jesus prayed his "intercessory prayer" at the end of Gospel John, saying how, if it's ok to "let this cup pass"... obviously Jesus was NOT demon-possessed. However, he had a slight conflict between self-will and implementing the will of his Father. Christ being our example...

Consider, in addition to warding against demonaic influences, let us also keep ourselves 'under the microscope' against unhealthy self-will / aka presumptiousness.

Grace be with you-
