Dear brothers and sisters, As you well know I posted something on deliverance earlier and I am sure that you have some valid questions on how demons operate, on how they came to be, what the symptoms are if you have one and what you can do about it. This same deliverance minister I mentioned earlier, Mike Smith, sent me an email answering some of those questions based on his knowledge and experience in the field. What you are about to read in very insightful and it is truly a wake up calll for all of us. If you are squeemish or if you have already made up your mind that you don't believe all this hocus pocus stuff, then don't bother reading any further. But on the other hand, if you are a seeker of the truth and you are not affraid of the truth and you want to educate yourself and want healing and deliverance for yourself, then read on. May the Holy Spirit open your eyes and ears to hear. Here goes: Hi Friends. I have received many emails with questions regarding demons. I will share a little of what I have learned with this thought: I am a learner like most folks and I certainly don't have all the answers. 1. Where do demons come from? No one knows. The Book of Enoch says they are the spirits of the ancient civilizations of giants who lived before the flood of Noah who died and did not go to hell (goliath, etc.). King David killed the last batch of the giants off. Some think demons are fallen angles. This is probably incorrect. The Greek words for each are different and have very different meanings. 2. What are they? Disembodied spirits. Humans are embodied spirits. 3. What do they do? Serve Satan's kingdom with violence, anger, supernatural powers, nightmares, hate, horror, illnesses, sicknesses, war, religions, church denominations, perversions and every imaginable evil, literally, under the sun. 4. Can a Christian have a demon? Yes and No. No, a Christian cannot have a demon in their spirit. The spirit is born again and the Holy Ghost lives there. They can, however, have a demon in their mind or body. When someone gets saved, the spirit is born again but the mind and body are not. That comes later, if we remain faithful. 5. How do Christians get demons? Two main ways: Carryover and Backsliding. 1. If a person has a demon before they get saved they carry the demons into their Christian life in the same way a person who is sick carries their illness into their Christian life. Just because someone gets saved does not mean they automatically get healed. Hopefully, they get healed later. The same is true of demons. Simon the Sorcerer in Acts 8 is a text book example of carryover. 2. Backsliding is the most frequent way! The gospel in America and Europe is so watered down that 90% of all Christians backslide. For example, Billy Graham loses over 80% of his new converts to backsliding within 6 months after the crusade. He admitted it was 90% in a TV interview but their follow up research is closer to 85%. Luis Palau generates about the same ratios. When someone backslides they end up worse than they were before they were saved. They go back to drugs, sex, rock & roll and their old sinful life, etc. When they deliberately turn their back on God and deliberately sin, the evil spirits then have a field day! 6. How the heck does it happen? Demons can live IN the minds and bodies of humans and animals. Their highway to inhabitation in humans is sin. Demons feed off sin like maggots feed on rotten meat in a trash can. The more and worse the sin the more and worse and powerful the evil spirits. IE: You asked for it, you got it! 7. Can you be fully demon possessed? Yes, but it's rare. These people are few and far between and usually live in solitary confinement in prisons or mental institutions in rooms or cells where they cannot hurt themselves or commit suicide. You will probably never see such a case. 8. Can demons cause mental and physical illness? Yes, it's routine. Not all problems are caused by demons, however. If you go overboard you will see them in everything and end up driving yourself nuts. Many people have a physical illness caused by a demon and they use James 5 and are not healed. That's because the illness is not a medical condition. They recover instantaneously or gradually after the putrid spirit is cast out. Jesus taught this in the NT. Some people got healed from casting out demons and some were healed with no mention of demons. Remember, all sickness is caused directly or indirectly by humans or Satan, not by God. Some illnesses are caused only by a medical condition. The destroyer wants to crush you. The Son of God: He wants to help you! Discernment is required here. Be careful. 9. Do Deliverance ministries help? Yes, but not often. If you go to a deliverance service you will see many manifestations but little healing. I have never seen or met a deliverance minister who did not themselves have demons. The most famous exorcist in America lives in Arizona and he is loaded with them. Few victims are actually delivered at these services because most of their ministry time is spent on soul ties, talking to spirits, generational issues and sinful antiquities. The few who are delivered are frequently repossessed. The Lord taught me to approach it differently. I spend most of my time on the individual sin of the person who needs to be healed and only a little time on the generational issues. When you find someone who will take responsibility for their sin, stop blaming everyone and everything else for their problems and who is desperate to be healed, you will see 100% deliverance. If not, good luck! 10. How did Christianity get in this boat? Two Reasons: 1: Sin. In the 30s, 40s, 50s few Christians had demons. With the breakdown of the American and European societies and the prolific spread of intense sin, evil spirits are raping the nations in hoards with tidal waves and tsunamis of destruction. Is it bad now? You ain't seen nothin' yet. Did you read the end of Revelation? It's inconceivably unbelievable. The most powerful demons in existence are not even loose yet! 2: Churches: The abominable and pathetic spiritual condition of churches in Europe, America and Canada have allowed our societies to decay into moral oblivion and demonic domination. The churches moved the Holy Ghost out and moved in theology, rituals, debates, opinions, powerless intellectualized teaching, clothing disputes, social services, entertainment, recreation, fun music, prosperity, pedophilia, sexual perversions, the love and adoration of money, egomaniacal millionaire ministers and every other insipid, idiotic, indecent evil. The church replaced Holy Ghost preachers with divinity school graduates, Bible college degrees, doctoral teachers and seminar expositors. The NT church was based on one thing: The Holy Ghost had the preeminence! Our churches talk about Him but are built on everything but Him. The result: A sinking Satanic society that is imploding. The weakest Christians in the world live in the U.S., Europe, Great Britain and Canada as a result of seeker friendly doctrines, gutless pastors, cowardly churches and mindless ministers. There are almost no churches helping people with demons. Ministers are scared, the people are confused and they simply leave them to suffer on their own. Do they ever suffer; mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I get angry when I see the devil butchering people. 11. How do I tell if I or someone else has picked up demons? You will have symptoms just like you have symptoms of a medical or mental condition diagnosed by a doctor. Things like spooky physical illnesses with multiple conflicting diagnosis', weird personality disorders that never leave, long term nightmares & depression, chronic addictions (food, drugs, medications, sex, etc.), uncontrolled period or rage, lust and cursing, dysfunctional families who gradually worsen, unabated pride, frequent phobias & stress states, spiritual indifference, carnal Christianity, inability to love or receive love, constant conflict, no compassion for the lost and self absorbed self righteousness, to name a few. 12. Can I have many demons? Sure. Hitler, Stalin, Saddam, etc. were loaded to the gills with them. Most of the time you will be dealing with a person with only a few. In my experience I run into 3 main types: unclean, seducing and familiar spirits. In my experience they enter people the quickest thru the Occult, Mind altering Drugs, Religion (Christian cults) and perverted sex (orgies, twosomes, pedophilia, bisexuality, homosexuality, sex clubs, wife swapping, serial adultery, pornography.......). 13. What do demons fear most? The Holy Ghost, The Blood, The Name of Jesus and a person who will repent from their sin with a broken heart. 14. Can I get rid of demons thru counseling, reading the Bible occasionally, routinely attending church, psychotherapy, medication, religious programs, positive thinking, religious rituals, shock treatment, tazers, hypnosis, meditation, exercise, etc. NO! Once you get them they never leave until you are dead. 15. Why are demons dangerous? They have supernatural powers of destruction and their greatest skill is DECEPTION. They cannot be diagnosed by the psychiatric or medical professions. Demons teach that Christians cannot have them. They are highly motivated, brilliant, manipulative and merciless. I have relatives who have demons who attend church every week and are totally deceived about their existence. I asked the Lord one day why the stronger demons resist or fight coming out of their victims. I had a strange thought come into my mind: I had the sense that if a demon loses a victim they face some kind of punishment in the spirit world from Satan and that the devil not only rules humanity with fierce brutality, but he also rules his spiritual kingdom with intimidation, violence, rage and fury, even to his own subjects. 16. Is there hope for me? YES! See #13. I have 10 more pages of information on this subject but I will stop here. I apologize if I said too much. Many of you and others off my radio program have called for prayer. I am working my way to you and we will soon join our faith and our hope together to believe The Great Physician for a miracle in your life. We are looking to Jesus. Love to you all with thanks for your prayers. Mike God bless and take care.

Praise the Lord Angelika. I enjoyed reading this so much and understand it. God is so good, and if we keep our minds, and spirits on him we will be safe in his Word. Yes their are evil spirits, and demons; it is a battle between darkeness of this world, which is satan and his evil spirits; or demons, and the light which is our Lord and Saviour. I plan to keep my heart centered on God and his righeousnesss. I want to learn more; and I thank you for writing this down . I pray God opens others understanding to the Word; as every day must be a learning of the Word process; spent in much prayer and reading of the word...God bless you Angelika... Your sister in Christ..charityanne

wow, i just hope God didnt get as bored reading that drivvel as i did, if we all lived our lives in constant fear of a god who alledgedly forgives all our sins or in fear of invisible hoodoo demons, what a terrible place the world would be. I for one am happy with ignorance, at least it keeps things interesting.

:ph34r: praise ye Jah :ph34r:


Hi Jonesof God,

It's too bad that you feel that way and that you are not open to the things of God.
The Word of God tells of people that will reject the truth as you have done. Yes God does forgive us of our sins, but the Word also says what will happen to those that reject His Word, for wages of sin is death and life is to be found in Jesus Christ. The Word talks about demons and if you have ever read the bible you would know that. As for fearing God, He hates sin, but loves the sinner, but if he doesn't repent and turn to God then the wages of sin is death. But the great thing is that He is willing to forgive all those that are truly sorry and want a deep and intimate relationship with Him. We are to have a healthy fear of the Lord, not the kind that you are referring to. If you want to live in ignorance, that's your choice, but where is that going to get you. It says in the Word that we are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, read it for yourself if you don't believe me. It appears to me that you don't have a close relationship with Jesus, because if you did, you would not have made the comments that you made. Why not try and read the Word on a daily basis and see how your attitude will change.
Anyway, may the Lord bless you, and remember that He loves you soooo much. Take care.

Lord, I thank Angelika for her words and I ask that you help all the members here at prayway and protect them from all evil. Amen. Jones of God- I have read a few of your posts and I don't think you understand what Prayway is here for exactly. I ask that you respect others posts for they are trying to help people like me understand a topic, or they may even be requesting that we join in for a prayer for someone. As far you stating the above that you are happy with whatever ignorance you may endure in this is not the place to post it, If you have an issue, you should PM one of the prayway warriors and they would be willing ot help you out. I ask that the Saviour above us, help you in whatever situation you may be facing and that he lead you into the true light as well as bring peace to you. AMen.
