Recognising Demonic Influence in your life and in your home
Also see Spiritual Warfare Manual pg 13
Demons like to hide undercover without you knowing they are at work.
Have you spent all your money on the physicians even obeying all of natures 8 laws of health to no avail? Mark 5:26
Are you oppressed; tormented or harassed more than other people seem to be?
Have you called on Christ to overcome in some area of your life but have not been able to get the victory?
How do Demons get access to us?
Basically when we go on Satans ground, doors are opened through sin or the sins of our forefathers. We are not guilty for the sins of our forefathers unless we participate ourselves but that doesn’t mean the devil cant have access to us via those sins.
We must confess all sin including the sins of our relatives and ask Jesus to cleanse us, then we should command any demons to leave us.
Signs of a Demonised Person
These are just some of the common signs of a demonized person. They are listed here as a reference.
Not all of these signs have to be present for someone to be considered demonized; conversely, the presence of some of these signs does not necessarily mean the person is in fact demonized. However, if any of these signs and/or other sins (not listed here) are a recurring pattern in a person’s life, I would suspect that this person has a demonic stronghold.
For example, it is possible for someone to be depressed (for instance, at times of mourning the loss of a loved one, etc.) and NOT be demonized. However, if a person has a recurring problem with depression, this is a spiritual problem. You should always be careful and sensitive when evaluating whether or not demons are the cause of these conditions in a person. As always, rely on the Holy Spirit for discernment!
