Understanding Spiritual Possession and Strongholds


As a Christian, one may wonder if it is possible to be possessed by a demon. There is a misconception that once you are born again, you are immune to spiritual attacks. However, the reality is that as long as we live in this world, we are constantly battling against spiritual forces. Satan still comes to earth looking to kill, Steal, and Destroy. Let's delve deeper into possession and strongholds in a Christian's life context.

Can a Christian Have a Demon?

When we talk about possession, we refer to something having total rulership over us. Whatever you do or try to get free grips your life, and you do the same sin repeatedly even though you hate it. As a born-again Christian, you are believed to be filled with love and God, but if there are areas in your life where you struggle to overcome sinful habits or emotions like anger, then that area is your master, and you are its slave. In other words, you are possessed by that particular emotion or behavior. We all have the law of sin in our members, as Paul talks about. Yes, deliverance is necessary to break free from the slavery of sinful habits. 

Possession can go even more profound. When working with Satanically Ritual Abused survivors, because of the type of trauma they went through, they will switch to another personality. That personality may be an evil part - a demonic spirit acting like a personality. The real person has no memory of them changing. It takes over their entire being for a moment, hours, or weeks. 

Understanding Spiritual Strongholds:

If you struggle with a particular sin or habit, such as anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, or sexual sins, that is a stronghold in your life. Strongholds are formed when we entertain temptations and negative thoughts, eventually leading to sinful actions. These strongholds can become so ingrained in our minds that they control our behavior, making us slaves to our sinful nature. It is possible to get it free. Sometimes, a person needs deliverance to break free. 

Practical Steps to Break Free:

Applying God's word to your life is the key to breaking free from spiritual strongholds. This means acknowledging your sins, confessing them to God, and seeking His forgiveness. It also requires taking practical steps to renew your mind and change your thoughts. For example, if you are struggling with anger and unforgiveness, forgive those who have wronged you, pray for them, and ask God to help you let go of the hurt and resentment.


In conclusion, as Christians, we are not immune to spiritual attacks or possession by negative emotions or behaviors. However, through God's word and the Holy Spirit, we can break free from strongholds and live a life of victory and freedom. Remember, whatever rules over you, then you are its slave. So, choose to be ruled by God's love and His truth rather than being enslaved by sin and negativity.

Can a Christian Have a Demon?

  • Possession and Slavery

  • The Battle of Spiritual Realities

  • Anger and Bitterness as Strongholds Practical Steps to Break Free:

  • Confessing Sins, seeking forgiveness from the Lord, and choosing to forgive others

  • Renewing Your Mind with God's Word

  • Obeying God, resisting temptation by not replaying it, and pulling down those thoughts so you don't replay them. The more you replay, the more action can be birthed. 

  • Submit to God and resist the devil. 

When you cannot break this, a mighty stronghold has been formed. You are a slave to it, and deliverance is needed to cast out the spirit of anger or whatever habitual sin that is gripping your life from freedom.

This is our Services section. This is a great place to give more information about the services we offer.  

These are complex, confusing times, and though we know that our God is in control and will take care of us, we sometimes feel anxious and worried. We know that, as written in Philippians 4:6, prayer is the answer, but sometimes praying is complex, and you need someone to pray with you. If you need prayer, fill out the form, we pray weekly on Tuesday nights over your prayer request.
