This was a fascinating read. I have been told since becoming a Christian that evil spirits could not indwell a truly saved Christian who has the Holy Spirit living within them. I always just assumed this as truth because it made sense in a way. I never researched it for myself until today. I found this fascinating article that logically presents a counter argument to this claim. I am starting to think it truly IS possible for an evil spirit(s) to indwell a born again Christian. Christians cannot be fully “possessed” so to speak but can possibly be demonized/oppressed. This makes it even more important to watch what spiritual doorways you are opening up.
Besides the fact that it’s never mentioned in the Bible that a Christian cannot be inhabited with an evil spirit, this section of the article was particularly convincing:
“What place is the holiest place in all existence? How about God’s throne room in heaven? The most wicked entity of all existence, Satan, shows up in God’s presence. The Bible reads:
“6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.7 And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it…12 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord”Job 1:6-7,12
If the prince of darkness can show up in the presence of the most holiest Being then why would it be impossible for an evil spirit to dwell inside the body of a Christian?”
