How Demons Enter
Ephesians 4:26-27 Be angry, and sin not : let not the sun go down upon your wrath :Neither give place to the devil. Note : We must understand that sin is not just a natural,sense- realm act that we commit from our mind or body . It is a spiritual act and breaks down God's spiritual hedge of protection in our lives which opens the spiritual door for evil spirits to enter. Ecclesiastes 10:8 . . . whoso breaketh an hedge , a serpent shall bite him . Note : The hedge is broken down through sin. Revelation 12:10 . . . . for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Note : Satan accuses us of our sins. Why ? It is because it gives him a spiritual legal right to send his evil spirits(demons) to enter into the person. This is because the person gave a place of residence to the devil through sin. You must understand that demons can not enter into a person whenever they want. There has to be a spiritual right or some means for them to be able to enter into a person. Sin breaks the spiritual hedge giving Satan the spiritual right to send the demons into a person. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned , and come short of the glory of God. Note : This verse declares that "all" have sinned , all have had evil spirits (demons) enter into them when they sinned. Therefore , every person has evil spirits (demons) in him or her and needs deliverance.
Do not ask or interrogate demons for information.
Example:Mark 1:25 Jesus told the demon to hold his peace. Jesus didn't want to hear what the demons had to say, likewise believers should not want to hear also what demons have to say.
Evil spirits (demons) are liars.
John 8:44 , Jesus revealed that the devil is a liar. Demons under his dominion are also liars. To ask demons for information to find out there name in order to cast them out is asking a liar to tell you the truth. The Holy Spirit guides you into all truth. In John 16:13 , the Word reveals that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and that He will guide us into all truth. Speaking to demons to gain information in order to cast them out is a denial of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Do not consult with familiar spirits (demons). In Deuteronomy 18:9-12 , we are warned to not do things that are an abomination to God. The word "consulting" in verse 11 means to ask or inquire. A familiar spirit is an evil spirit (demon) who is familiar with the person. Asking demons for information in order to know what to cast out is consulting with familiar spirits which is an abomination to God.
Depending on demons for information lets them have a part in directing the ministry of deliverance.
This is because those who are interrogating demons must get information from them before they can successfully cast them out. Believers should never let demons have any part in the ministry of deliverance .
Demons can send curses at others.
If you allow demons to speak through a person , they have a means to release curses at those who are present or those who are not present. Curses are released through the mouth according to James 3:10. By allowing them opportunity to release curses.
Prolongs the deliverance , allows demons to control the person when they are speaking, and is not edifying to anyone.
When demons are being asked for information , you are at the mercy of the demons. They may not tell you the answers you seek after for quite a period of time. Demons will control the person when they are giving information and it is not edifying. These are scriptual reasons, believers should never engage in interrogating demons for information in order to cast them out. Interrogating demons for information is an unscriptual practice.
Hindrance to deliverance.
Matthew 13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief . Unbelief hindered Jesus from doing many mighty works at Nazareth .
2Timothy 1:7 For God had not given us the spirit of fear . . . . Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not ; for I am with thee . . . . Luke 1:74 . . . .that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear . . . . Note: Fear is the opposite of faith . Satan often uses fear in some way to hinder one from receiving deliverance.
James 4:6 . . . . . God resisteth the proud , but giveth grace unto the humble . People with pride do not admit that they have problems and / or do not want anybody to know that they have a problem.
Lack of Repentance
2Timothy 2:25-26 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves ; if God preadventure will give them repentance to the achknowledging of the truth ; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil , who are taken captive by him at his will. Romans 2:4 . . . . the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance ? 2 Corinthians 7:10 For sorrow worketh repentance to salvation . Repentance is the Greek word "metanoia" which means to change the mind to a change of behavior . The word "salvation" is the Greek word "soteria" which also means deliverance. Without true repentance , the demons have a right to stay within a person and will not come out .
1Samuel 12:15 But if ye will not obey the voice of the Lord , but rebel against the commandment of the Lord , then shall the hand of the Lord be against you , as it was against your fathers . Isaiah 1:19-20 If ye be willing and obedient , ye shall eat of the land : But if ye refuse and rebel , ye shall be devoured with the sword : for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it . Note : If one refuses to obey the Word by not casting demons out of him or herself, the hand of the Lord will be against him or her and he or she shall be devoured by the evil spirits (demons) within him or herself.
Lack of knowledge of deliverance
Ecclesiastes 12:9 And more over , because the preacher was wise , he still taught the people knowledge ; yea , he gave good heed , and sought out , and set in order many proverbs . Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge : because thou hast rejected knowledge , I will also reject thee . . . . Proverbs 11:9 . . . . but through knowledge shall the just be delivered . Note : Mny preachers and teachers don't teach believers how to cast out demons . These ministers are not wise . Because of not being taught the knowledge of deliverance , Christians don't know what to do to overcome the works of the devil in their lives. As Hosea 4 implies , Christians are being destroyed , by demons physically , mentally , socially , emotionally , and financially because of lack of knowledge about deliverance. Get the knowledge of deliverance and start casting out demons in every area of your life and the Lord will deliver you from every problem and as long as you free from sin and do not give place to the devil again .
