How Demons Can Infiltrate Christians   6 comments


Can demons infiltrate Christians? The late Derek Prince suggested that they can, and in the book, Rules of Engagement: Preparing for Your Role in the Spiritual Battle, he explains how:

In James 3:15 the apostle speaks about a form of wisdom which does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual [soulish], demonic. James depicts a downward slide in three successive stages: from the earthly to the soulish to the demonic.

When Christians become earthly they lose the vision of eternity. They cannot see beyond the things of this life: success, pleasure, wealth, physical health. They are only interested in what their faith will do for them in this life! Concerning such people Paul says: If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable (1 Corinthians 15:19). Christians like that often consider themselves prosperous and successful. God considers them pitiable.

After the earthly, the next stage is soulish. To be soulish is to be egocentric, self-centered. For such people, the Christian faith is a way to get what they want out of life. They suppose that godliness is a means of gain (1 Timothy 6:5).

The soulish opens the way for the demonic. This is one main way in which demons infiltrate the church. The question is often asked: Do Christians ever need deliverance from demons? The words of James provide a clear answer. This downward slide from the earthly to the soulish to the demonic exposes both individual believers and whole congregations to the activities of demons.

  1. Can demons enter Christians? I would say no, according to I John 5:18 and I John 4:4 . However when something like I Timothy 4:1 occurs then I would say yes
  2. Disobedience (sin) can cause demons to enter into us.

    I am still being delivered of demons. Obedience breaks generational curses.

  3. Internet is a certain type demon that drives people to never get off the net. I suffer from this.
    I pray God would deliver me from this and help me.
    I live for the fight. Seems I cant stay out of the fight because it energizes me.
    This is my ‘demon’ if you will.

    I hope you are well, Tim.
    I am writing a book right now, it will be published in March. Called “America in Captivity”
    Uber rich Jew who is Messianic is writing it also.
    Its prophetic and in it is a demand for repentance.
    A plea for repentance.

    • I hope your book will be inspiring for others.

      If I am hearing from God, I have and will be spending less and less time on my two blogs.

      Just came across this song by Roni Dalumi; it is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard; she sings it in Hebrew. Take care.

  4. I read a book two years ago about SW, I’m pretty sure it was by a different author. I recently heard of Derek Prince when I was reading a book by Perry Stone. So will have to check that out, now!
