Christians Can NOT Be Possessed!
Hello friends! If you have been keeping up with my podcast episodes then you know that I have been recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. Since I have that illness, I can hear demons that continually try to convince me that I am possessed by them. It would scare me because I believed it at first, and it caused me to spend alot of time rebuking them and looking at deliverance videos. But the Lord showed me that I am not and never was possessed because Christians CAN NOT be possessed! He showed me through scripture that He is protecting and defending me from demonic possession; and that every Christian is safe from that happening to them! And that can be seen in these verses:
No, it is rather by means of God's power that I drive out demons, and this proves that the Kingdom of God has already come to you. “When a strong man, with all his weapons ready, guards his own house, all his belongings are safe.
Luke 11:20-21 GNTD
But you belong to God, my children, and have defeated the false prophets, because the Spirit who is in you is more powerful than the spirit in those who belong to the world.
1 John 4:4 GNTD
Do not try to work together as equals with unbelievers, for it cannot be done. How can right and wrong be partners? How can light and darkness live together? How can Christ and the Devil agree? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? How can God's temple come to terms with pagan idols? For we are the temple of the living God! As God himself has said, “I will make my home with my people and live among them; I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
2 Corinthians 6:14-16 GNTD
These verses all go to show that God is the Strongman protecting my spirit from demonic oppression; and that He would never allow darkness to be yoked with my spirit when His Spirit already lives within me. God is protecting me from every demon and is following me wherever I go to ensure my safety!
Whoever goes to the Lord for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, can say to him, “You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust.” He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases. He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you.
Psalm 91:1-4 GNTD
