Is It Possible For Christians To Be Possessed By Demons?

          We know from Scripture that it is impossible for genuine Christians to be possessed by demons because they are owned by God Himself (1 Corinthians 7:23). Demons have no control or dominion over us. God has redeemed us with the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ (Acts 20:28). They have no claim to us.

          The God who indwells Himself in us is greater than the things of this world (1 John 4:4). Demons are just as much a part of creation as we are. The Holy Spirit has no fellowship with demons (2 Corinthians 6:14-16), and therefore cannot be present in the body of a person who is possessed by them.

          The only types of people that we see as being possessed by demons in Scripture are those who do not believe. The New Testament epistles record no examples of or instructions as to how to even cast evil spirits out of Christians. It is not possible for a Christian to be demon possessed.
