    I'm about to reach 1 year since I began a project of investigating about the spiritual realm. I've watched hundreds and hundreds of testimonies. All kinds of testimonies. In this thread I would like share and hear your thoughts on testimonies involving experiences with demons. Below I'm listing the most astonishing ones I've watched so far:
    I've also watched lots of live recordings of exorcisms, but I'm not sure if it would be appropriate to share them here.

    What are your thoughts on these testimonies? Have you ever experienced anything similar?

    Not discounting any testimony..

    The enemy has impacted everyone including "...for their minds have been blinded by the god of this age, leaving them in unbelief. Their blindness keeps them from seeing the dayspring light of the wonderful news of the glory of Jesus Christ, who is the divine image of God." II Cor 4:4

    The blinders on our minds have been removed since we believe in the wonderful news of Jesus Christ.

    I don't need to check your links as I've been casting demons out for the last 40 years.

    When Christ returns, many unsaved will claim to have cast out demons and done many mighty works in his name. This is more of a characteristic of the charismatic movement than mainline churches.

    Similar was said by Jesus of those who rejected what the Holy Spirit was doing back then, just as you keep doing today.

    The bible is very clear there are demons. The more I read about them, how they actually have consciousness, can move from place to place, or what have you, the more creepy they become.

    Very Interesting subject.

    Would be interested in that as well.

    They want to occupy bodies 'so the demons pleaded, “If you cast us out, send us into that herd of pigs.” Matt 8:31

    'When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation." Matt 12:43-45

    My house in this Scripture is the body.. This means this person who has been delivered is empty because they haven't been filling themselves by reading Scripture. So it's vital to advise them to be diligent about reading the Bible.

    This also shows there are various levels/categories of the enemy forces because of the 7 times more wicked.

    "But if I drive out the demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has [already] come upon you." Luk 11 Plus numerous other Scripture to support deliverance.. We need to be directed by the Holy Spirit.

    Having cast demons out of the most theological of Christians for many decades, and I can assure you that just knowing the bible is no defence against demons.

    I have met the youngest of believers who have better spiritual defences than older more staid ones.
    Far too many theologically minded Christians, (even well entrenched on this forum), believe and teach the doctrine of demons that Christians cannot have demons, when in reality the deliverance ministry is specifically to deliver the saints, not unbelievers, from demons.

    Our prime defence is having our temple filled with the Holy Spirit, being led by the Holy Spirit, and actively resisting the devil instead of following his temptations.

    Agree Scriptural basis.
    "When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation." Matt 12:43-45

    That's why the importance of reading and studying Scripture needs to be emphasized to those being delivered.

    I'll think about it, but don't hold your breath.

    To me, the mundane is far far more important than "impressive" cases. By which I mean that deliverance should never be in the hands of a few experienced "deliverance ministers", but something that all believers do as an aspect of normal Christian living, all through their lives and relationships. That's what Jesus commanded at the end of Mark's gospel.

    When I am asked to do deliverance, I am more interested in getting the people to participate and do the commanding of demons themselves than blankly waiting for me to perform. If people are unwilling to participate, then I have refused to help them.

    I have come to see over the years of Bible reports of Demons and Satan, that the evil works and troubles are all from the great "deceiver" and "liar"---Satan, as God says. He has many Demons working out the things he plans, and can occupy certain unsaved worldly men for evil (and much torment in some minds---as the Bible shows); and as some Christians have also reported herein on CF.

    Bible history shows the 'demons' are fallen Angels when the leading Angel: Lucifer, rebelled against the Creator and was cast out of Heaven; and went off to imitate God, and took with him other Angels who became evil and known as "demons". God, of course, allowed this ---even to this day, to be a test of man whether he would obey God. One can study that history in sound Bible Commentaries.

    Thankfully, faithful Godly souls can have protection as well as heavenly blessings forever, by faith in the Savior ---the Lord Jesus, the Christ of God. Satan may still work to deceive us, but our God will preserve His redeemed souls.

    "Many will say to me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matt

    Yes the main problem is "...I never knew you...."

    Until they are cast out, its not just the unsaved, but Christians who are infested by demons.

    I make a distinction in 'believing', Francis, and surely Satan can plant bad thoughts in our mind, and cause us to think bad ways and even to act on it, but I have not seen cases where a true "born again" believer is demonized to act in extreme ungodly ways for great harm. A professing Christian may be only that, in thinking that in believing about God is the same as being "born again" by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Satan cannot enter into one who is "sealed" by the Spirit of God, I believe, only try to plant bad thoughts ---would you say?

    I can guarantee you that Christians can be demonised just like the unregenerate can. They can also be led by those demons to act in the most ungodly of ways.
    I've been casting demons out of Christians for 40 years, and like most who do deliverance, could never see myself doing deliverance on non believers.
    I disagree completely. Yes demons start by planting thoughts, but given that most Christians are thoroughly ignorant when it comes to spiritual warfare, it doesn't take long before those thoughts lead to a wide open door.
    That's how marriage breakdowns happen, that's how evil thoughts turn into murder, robbery, fraud etc, and all among Christians as well as non Christians.

    The big difference is that non believers have only their self will to resist those thoughts, whereas Christians have the power of the Spirit to completely drive out the demons who've been sending those thoughts.
    I'm sorry to say, but the prime reasons that Christians get demonised, is because they are taught the stuff you've been saying here, principally that Christians can't be demonised. That in itself is actually a doctrine of demons, designed to leave Christians defenseless, and it is hugely successful!

    Not only is it successful in getting them demonised, but it is nearly impossible to deliver a Christian who believes that doctrine, as before they can be delivered, they need to understand their problem is demonic. That's very difficult when their fool pastor has taught them that Christians can't have demons.
