I am going to make this a quick as possible, for various reasons. I read the story of the guy who was delivered from demonic possession. I have the same problem.
See, I was taken to a priest hear in Hattiesburg, MS for deliverance. Afterwards I have been able to pray and receive communion. Yet I do not seem to have the same freedom you guys have.
I won’t go into my beahavior before the deliverance, but I only feel halfway healed. I still feel the presence near me, I still have the horrible nightmares, depression, strange compulsions, and occasionally seen them, or it.
I am going for the last bit of medication that has not been tried on me yet, but after this it will be a failure by the medical community to do something, besides my family now sees the things. I can conduct a normal life yet every now and then I return to the state I was in before. Please help.
Charles – I really feel for you. Hang in there. Don’t ever give up, keep wanting your freedom. Sometimes there can be a hereditary/ancestral curse over a life when a person has tried living correctly, confessed sin and still evil doesn’t leave. There will be a reason and this is what ‘spiritual warfare’ is. Rom 6 outlines.

You will learn about weapons as you grow in faith with Jesus. Praise will help keep evil away. It aided King Saul with David’s praise. If you can find a bible believing, spirit-filled, cross-living church who understands the spiritual realm get yourself there and request assistance. God always hears the cry of the human heart and the power of the blood of Jesus can break every binding fetter. Hope this helps. I’m praying for you as well.
The only thing that i would like to say to you is that,first you have to believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour of your soul and second thing is that you have to confess with your own mouth that he is Lord and your saviour and open up your heart and invite him in. Read (Rev.3:20). If you let him to be the Lord of your heart,he will fight all your spiritual battles for you. He is kind and faithful. Through the power of His blood, you command those evil spirits from your life and they have to leave because he has given us power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over “ALL THE POWER OF THE ENEMY; AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT US.” When you are born again, you become a child of God therefore you will apply that authority over all demonic attacks and they have to leave.Lastly find a spirit filled church where they worship God in the spirit and ask for assistance and you will be delivered. Hope that this will help you a bit.
Charles I had a similar problem, but your fortunate because you realize that there are other spirits influencing your life. I didn’t realize my own possession until I was delivered, and I looked back and saw all the things that had been cast from me.
I will not tell you it is not an easy process, because the devil knows our weaknesses and he unrelently acts on them. So it will take lots of courage on your part to decide that enough is enough. Begin first by making a confession of faith, and acceptance of Christ as your Savior. No demon can stand in your life at the mention of Christ name. Secondly, talk to someone rooted in the faith that is spiritually strong about what you are going through, so this person can intercede for you and help you through this process. This is the most important step to me, because we always think we can handle it on our own, but the truth of the matter is that we can’t. A problem shared is half solved, so keep share it with someone you love and trust. Every moment of everyday you will have to condemn that spirit. This is the easiest part (at least to me). The Bible says, “Resist the devil and he will flee. So everyday, morning, noon, and night, reject the devil with the power invested in the name of Jesus, and the spirit that is troubing will flee. But you have to be consistent. Lastly,try to find an outlet, writing about it or speaking to someone about it. You’ll eventually find that what we see as shame, God will later use it as our ministry; but it can only become a ministry if we are open about it. That’s when your freedom comes. Because the only stronghold the devil has in situations like this is that he makes you think that you are the worst person in the world for what you do and for that reason he tricks you into hiding it. But if we reveal it to the light, we realize that we are not alone, and can be free and redeemed.
I pray that God will give you the strength and the courage to get through. Remembr you are more than a conqueror through Him that loves you.
That was good advice.Satan torments me and now I will try the daily routine .Thanks for sharing it with all.
Entry for October 26, 2006
My whole life I have been searching for that piece of me that made the rest make sense. I imagined her being a coward and lazy by hiding in the darkest corner of my body, scared to come out. I used to get so mad; I would try and force her out by cutting myself. I often wondered if she was even there, if she was dead. Over time I realized I dealt with pain by cutting, and she dealt with pain by hiding, but both of us were dying reflections of the other. She was my soul. The demons that played with my mind forced her out. I can close my eyes and imagine the battle that was taking place with in me. I can see her fighting with everything she had to survive, even if surviving meant hiding, she still lived. Today I am her. She awoke when the demons were driven out by the hand of God, and we were reunited. It was a beautiful reunion.
When the world slept, her pain awoke, calling her name.
Demons lived in her heart, her soul convinced to shame.
I watched her play the role of prisoner, I watched her throw a good mind away.
The picture inside, could not be painted with pastel,
Could not be looked upon with pride
The picture inside was not worthy of a frame
I watched her try to hide the pain.
I watched her find strength from the world.
I felt her broken heart each time they let her dowm.
I felt the blood run down her arm,
And the relief it gave her heart.
I knew before she would start,
One day a few would not be enough to suffice the forces that drove her mind.
I cringed when she went to deep.
We cried, as I to tried to stop the blood.
Reality hit us hard that day,
The world and all its ways
Was not capable of stitching this soul together.
Satan lied to her that day.
He would not seep through her wounds,
He would not leave because she was submissive.
That girl and I became one that day
Fighting together on the forefronts of our mind.
Today, we are fed, as one
I no longer detach myself from the realities of within.
My heart was stitched and mended
My mind is mine, and Gods
By the grace of God,
I am whole.
you know, demons are a scary idea. i feared them for a long time cause i was scared of getting them again. i know that pieces of me held on to them cause they were familiar. i did not understand freedom in christ until he broke me. i dunno, if you want to talk more pm me at scotland_euphoria yahoo messenger
I want to let you know that im a very spiritual person, and have seen many things myself often wondering if there was something wrong with me because no one else was experaincing them. Let the doctors deal with what doctors do, and let the spiritual people deal with the spiritual things. I cant say what you are dealing with, I havent spent the time with it, as miricals come from the saints who spend their time in effort.
I can say the difference between spirits isnt easy to figure out, and takes time. If you believe in God then you must also believe in the devil, or the other way around. The difference between them is that evil will come to you, and you must always go to God. Evil will seek your friendship by whatever means it can find, and even ask for some kind of comitment or agreement. Where God must be asked, which in order for him to change anything must change your mind of something you believe that gets in the way of him making a miracle. In otherwords God wont do anything you dont want him to. God is already a friend to those who seek their salvation from him, all he asks is that we ask him. Often times the devil comes to get in the way of finding the answers we need, and wants to misslead us. So when we pray he comes with a offer making himself look like God, and this is missleading because we have asked God, and expect help to come. So go by scripture and if its a part of scripture God will use that as he remains always the same. So when you pray ask for help with your choices, and ask him to show you its him when he answers you. He may send a angel to say behold see what has taken place, because you have chosen to do what is right and keep Gods word.
Often The devil picks people who think they are opressed by the world, and those people believe they can not be like everyone else, and their state of being is hopless. This is the very reason we ask God for help, but getting any respons from any spirit is a good sign even if its a bad thing because where one exists so does the other. So God wouldnt be very far away. The bottom line is the reasoning for which God allowed such a thing to take place. Most of the time the reason for this is not praying to keep the devil away or to keep away from the test. The test is knowing what to do or choice when the devil comes and to do the right thing when that time comes. The reward would be much the same as Jesus after he was baptized with God saying this is my son in whom i am well pleased. Most of the time its what we believe that gets in the way.
Most of the time what we see gets in the way of we can not see, and this is the most important clue. Often times we pray for help, and expect the answer to be something tangable, something we can reach out and grab, but this is not the case. Jesus said the kingdom of God is within us, and whats within us is our ability to choose, and choose right from wrong. If we pray for help then our thoughts have to be changed, and often times this is the reason for dreams and visions. The vision being a mistery, we would seek out others who have had simular experainces that would know the answer. In this way the mind changes, then after some time the things we do. Since the test is based on false beliefs leading to the devil to further temp, once the thought is corrected the healing comes. This is all part of the inspired word of God, as healing comes when we get it right.
If you are under demon opression then reading the bible, and doing what the bible says, and spending time in the bible thinking about it with prayer two times a day should solve the problem. But do continure to see your doctor, and take medication.
also another thought, that if its not you, then it has to be somone else meaning someone else could be causing those things to happen. I had met a women who manifested some incredible things, that even i saw. Was not a good place to be. But all in all it was my thoughts because of where i was, and what i was putting up with because i didnt think i had much of a choice or couldnt do anything about it.
Best of luck, and be forgiven.
Charles my brother, believe in christ and never ever lose hope, he is there, right there holding us tight and carrying us during our deepest trials and tribulations. When you are relieved when you turn away from your sins and start living a good life, do you think the satan who tested the mighty god, would sit hands tied in your case, he would try to lure you back, you are very important for him, but also remember god has caught you tight, and god is sure to win in this tug of war. Read the Bible day in and day out, read about gods love, in a matter of few days you would gain what you want. I was possesed by the demon of worldly pleasure too, and u don’t have any idea of what kind of life i was leading, and in a country like India, where you have family to help you, but god relieved me, and even today satan has not given up on me, but god has conquered me and he is my king, no matter what comes my way he deals it for me, just believe don’t fear, trust and love god, and don’t fear him, he is our father. If you need further help do mail me, consider me your sister martinaanandam at yahoo dot com. God will help you.
alot of times we feel that we are all alone. we are so consumed by the pain we feel inside, that we can’t see jesus loving hand………… but he is there. he hears your cries, and feels your pain. he really does. he experienced all your pain on the cross. he was beaten, spit upon, rejected to no end…… and then our sin was poured out like running water upon him. he took all that, to do the will of the father. in jesus name i claim healing on your mind. in jesus name i pray a hedge around you and your family. let us agree together that you are delivered, that you are free. not it might happen, or its gonna happen, but it is happening right this minute. i will be praying for you and i cant wait to read your testimony on this page. you can e-mail me any time you want. my address is justin_philpot at yahoo dot com
i am here whenever you want to talk. love in christ, a friend of jesus. justin
Charles let me assure you that to play around with spirits and/or spiritual stuff is very wrong and dangerous.
If its medication you need go get it. God invented and created herbs and other material which the chemist mixes to produce medication, therefore it is biblical and God also created and put the doctor there as well. I will direct you to an important scripture. Please look in Isaiah 45:7. Seek and you shall find, knock and the door will open…..this is the way for finding the HOLY SPIRIT.
