Demonic Attacks From Outside & Inside
Demonic attacks on Christians are either from OUTSIDE the person or from INSIDE.
Born again Christians cannot be possessed or completely taken over by demonic spirits, because they are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
But Christians can be afflicted by demonic spirits from outside them, and sometimes from inside, if they have given the enemy legal authority to do so.
Sources Of Demonic Affliction & Infiltration
Demonic affliction or infiltration may happen as a result of the following -
• DELIBERATE REPEATED SIN against God's laws about sexual relationships
• IDOLATRY, including worship of wealth rather than God
• INVOLVEMENT IN FALSE RELIGIONS , including Freemasonry
• GENERATIONAL INFILTRATION DOWN A FAMILY LINE, including curses
Some Christian writers and preachers say that a Christian cannot be afflicted by demonic spirits. But if that were true, why does Paul go to such lengths in EPHESIANS 6:10-18 to warn us to put on the whole armour of God for the spiritual warfare in which we are engaged, whether we like it or not?
