Can Anyone Sell Your Soul To The Devil?

My question is can anyone sell your soul to the devil. I've been experiencing strange things that I can't explain and I was wondering if this has anything to do with it.

The only person who controls who is in possesion of your soul is you.

You must choose who you will serve.....no one else can do that for you.

Not selling your soul but more like "possession". Have you been messing around in occultish things?

No. God owns people souls. No one else. Malachi points out, "10 Have we not all one Father ? Did not one God create us?"

It was never anyone else's, and you do not have the right to buy, barter, or sell even your own soul.

Such tactics are many, as Paul says, "we are not ignorant of the schemes of the Devil". It might be noted when Paul said this he was talking about a Christian whom he himself had said he would "turn over to the Devil". And this juncture, he was saying it was time to bring him back into the fold, and stated not doing so would be a scheme of the Devil.

This tactic, for instance, to get you to believe maybe you sold your soul to the Devil puts you in a state of hopelessness and helplessness. That is the whole point. It is a story which has been told to you or worked out to test whether you get stuck in the "truthfulness" of that con game... or whether you can keep moving on in faith in the love of God. That God loves you and can save you from anything and anyone who says otherwise is working with the Devil.

Or anything, such as spirits.

So always believe, press on, reject anything that would get you stuck in the mud. Because that very mud is the trap. And belief is the reaching out your hand to God, believing His Hand is there... to take you, pull you out, and put you back on your journey.

No, nobody can sell your soul to the devil. Messing with the occult can open doors to give the devil influence in your life, but God is greater than that and He can stop it if you pray to Him to break that hold over you and cast the devil and all demonic influence out of your life.

I know of more than one person who was into the occult and tried to sell or give their souls to the devil, then became Christian later because they were God's all along and He wouldn't give up their souls even while they thought they wanted to.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me

Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the malignant enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That with thy Saints I may praise Thee
Forever and ever
Amen

I would also strongly recommend to seriously ask hard questions on Scripture and search out matters. Doubt what you have heard. Look out for mythologies even if they seem to be strongly accepted by "church" authorities.

Stick to Scripture at first, and believe God can speak to you in your heart. Hold on to the concept of seeking, which is a promise, "if you seek, you will find".

Don't hold to Scripture without also turning to God who is always right there, as the Pharisees did, "You search and search Scripture, yet refuse to come to me".

The way really is off the beaten track. It should not be assumed the many are there - though they may be, for purposes of not judging them - but it should be taken that even if they are, the road is not the same road the masses are taking. Nor the many.

And it is hard to find.

God is the answer to all questions. God has all the answers. And is as close as prayer. Even the thoughts in your heart, God always has before Him.

You should be thirsty, but never feel there is never any answer to that thirst. That is where faith comes in.

Our soul is our individuality . It's not so much what we are , as it is who we are ...

If we listen to God , and accept / adopt His Word / Way then our soul is conformed to His .

But if we listen to the devil , and accept / apply his lies / deceptions , then our individuality takes on his devilish nature .

Such is not technically " selling one's soul " , but is sometimes metaphorically referred to as such .

It doesn't seem possible that someone else could cause us to choose such an ongoing course... though we certainly have the potential to exert some influence on each other , ultimately each of us chooses for ourself , what we believe , and who we should trust / follow .

However , it isn't that far fetched , that someone ( with bad intent ) would devilishly try to convince others that they had such power as to destine the fate of others - but such is a lie , which could only exert some power over us , if we erronously believed it were true .

Hope this is helpful to you .

Christians can't, our souls aren't ours anymore to sell. Jesus owns them, and he's not letting go. An unbeliever theoretically could, but God has both the power and will to rescue souls who are in the devil's hands.

Can Anyone Sell Your Soul To The Devil.

Dear Mooncresentgirl. You had some good replies. But to make doubly sure, " keep saying: I belong to Jesus, I love Jesus, and I am His: body and soul." We know that at the Name of Jesus, Satan and all demonic/satanic beings will FLEE. I say this with love. Greetings from Emmy, sister in Christ.

No one can sell their souls to the devil. However the bible does say that whosoever you yield yourself a servant of, his servant you are. Meaning if you yield yourself over to the devil, he will be your master. The devil however, is never the owner of you and can never keep you beyond your own will. Many people believed that they sold their souls to the devil and the devil invented the lie that once you have done that, your soul is his forever. Thats just a lie because you are your own soul and control your own destiny.
