    If you are born again , you have Holy Spirit inside of you and wicked demons/angels can't kill you/hurt you , i mean there are many wicked spirits in this world , satan when he fall took 1/3 of the angels.

    Angels are powefull being , we read in bible that one angel could kill many thousand of men , or two angels could destroy two city without problem .

    If you have nightmares or something like that it's probably not wicked angel but some demon . Demons can't go inside you when you have Holy Spirit ( 1 John 4:4 ) .

    If you want them to go away , say loud that you are greatful for Jesus Christ's shed blood for your sins , and by his Holy name you demand them to move away from your presence . You demand them not ask them to leave , you are in charge and Holy Spirit enable you to do that ( don't think it in your mind you have to say it , demons can't read your mind only God can ) .

    If you need to be sure that you are born again , read 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 and trust Jesus Christ as your savior from heart and his finished work of dying for sins of the whole world .

    Then you are sealed with Holy Spirit ( Ephesians 1:13-14).

    Maybe you found some wicked angel or some strong demon , if he does not obey after you command him to go away in name of Christ and his blood shed for us , then you need to try what is written here .

    Matthew 17:17-21

    I notice you have yourself as a "seeker" in your profile. They will keep coming back until you are occupied by the Holy Spirit, which means you need to first accept Jesus Christ and become a born-again Christian.

    “Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came’; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. (Matthew 12:43-45)

    thats true, he was a good man, but my faith in his divinity is not strong. would it make a difference if i asked in His name for them to leave even if i do not believe?

    You do need faith to cast out demons. If unbelievers try to cast out evil spirits, sometimes it can backfire as in the case below:

    Then some itinerant Jewish exorcists tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those with evil spirits, saying, “I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” When the seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish high priest, tried to do this, the evil spirit said to them in reply, “Jesus I recognize, Paul I know, but who are you?” The person with the evil spirit then sprang at them and subdued them all. He so overpowered them that they fled naked and wounded from that house. (Acts 19:13-16)

    The whole world is under the control of the Devil, but God has given Christians the authority to overcome demons as long as they are free of any grounds for demons to access them:

    They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony (Revelation 12:11)

    Demons need legal rights to possess a person and unbelievers usually are not able to revoke all these legal rights once they have invited evil spirit into their life. So if you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ and become a born-again Christian with the Holy Spirit in you, there is always a chance that they will return even if they leave temporarily.

    Legal Rights of Demons - How to Deal With Them

    Are you currently going to any church that you can seek help from? It would be good if you could talk to the pastor there.

    Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
    (Eph 6:10-18)

    It sounds to me as though you already know it is an evil spirit, since "it is capable of hurting physically". I wonder what you mean by that, by the way.

    It is good that you are praying, but in your situation, where your faith is weak, it is necessary for you to go to a church that actually believes the Bible (not all churches do) and get some mature Christians to pray over you and with you for deliverance.

    You also need to follow Lily's advice and make a full commitment to follow Christ. If you are not born again, with the Holy Spirit living inside you, you will always struggle with these evil spirits because you will not have the authority to command them to leave you alone.

    Jesus claimed to be more than a good man, He claimed to be equal to the Father. Jesus cannot be just a good man, because good men do not make false or delusional claims. If He was not equal to the Father, then He was delusional or a downright liar. Either He was God in human form, or He was crazy, or He was a liar... but He did not leave us the option of simply calling Him a good man.

    i don't want to put my family in such a situation, they have not been able to posses me yet so perhaps they don't wanna harm me. i don't know what i should do, but i have to ignore it for now, unless something major happens.

    i don't want to sound ridiculous, that is one of the reasons i hesitate to tell anyone..
    okay.. so far, i have experienced sleep paralysis.. felt someone touching me, it hurt me only once though.
    and many times (i hate to sound like a horror movie cliche)..many times it has closed my bedroom door. not just simply closed, but locked. i always heard the sound of the door locking itself.

    plus, i have had many evil thoughts that i felt were not my own. and i saw some sort of physical forms that i believe were those spirits.

    You don't sound ridiculous, you sound scared. It's true that something of this extent is rare, but it does happen.

    I experienced this as well before I became a Christian. I would wake up in the middle of the night with paralysis, and I would feel an ice cold presence go from the top of my chest, through me, and out my back... and then I could move and breathe. It hasn't happened since I became a Christian.

    I haven't experienced anything like that, but I believe you.


    This is the most common type of attack, and often the most effective because many people either think they are going crazy or accept the thoughts as their own. Prayer is essential to repel these types of attacks. Even after years of being a Christian, I still get attacked in this way from time to time.

    This is possible.


    I don't want to sound like a broken record, but you need to seek out a Bible believing church and have the pastor counsel you and mature Christians pray for you. You can't fight this alone in your current spiritual state.

    Didn't you say they hurt you physically? It's not that the demons don't want to harm you, it's just that opportunity hasn't presented itself yet.

    Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour. Resist him, steadfast in faith, knowing that your fellow believers throughout the world undergo the same sufferings. (1 Peter 5:8-9)

    What you should do is to find a pastor that has the experience in dealing with demons, and if that's not possible, like food4thought said, seek help from the pastor of a Bible believing church near you. If you need help finding a church, PM me with your location and I will try to see if I can find one for you.

    Thank you for understanding me. i will try to find the courage to inform someone of this situation. i just keep thinking that perhaps its my mind playing tricks on me or even if it is all real, it isn't worth telling anyone.

    Turn from your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be indwelt by the Holy Spirit, against whom no evil spirit has any authority over.

    It is impossible for a Christian to become possessed by a demon or spirit.

    It does take a little courage to talk about stuff like this in our society, but I pray that you will find that courage when you get to college.

    You don't want this stuff to continue, do you? If you let the evil spirits stay in your life, it is unlikely to get better, and there is always the chance that it could get worse...
