Becoming Demonized through Excessive Sin
When considering a Christian’s steps to deliverance one must pay attention to the sin. Excessive sin is a way in which a Christian may potentially become demonized. When a Christian willfully continues to sin through rebellion and the rejection of the Word of God an open door to Satan is created.
The Bible shows that all Christians sin. But in 1 John chapter 2 we are reminded that if we sin we have Jesus Christ as our advocate with the Father. When we feel that we have sinned in an area of our lives we must quickly confess this sin and remain in a good relationship with the Lord.
1 John 1:9:If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
When a Christian purposely rejects the leading of the Holy Spirit to repent, an open door may be created for demonic activity to occur. This is particularly true of sin that becomes excessive. When we live recklessly or without a repentant heart God will allow us to have a mind that is corrupt and reprobate.
Romans 1:28: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
A Christian cannot adopt the attitude that demons cannot affect them in anyway. This statement is only true as we walk humbly before the Lord and live in a repentant manner. In addition, Christians must not sin on purpose and then ask for forgiveness. Jesus knows the intents of our hearts and is watching. With all this in mind we must remember what seems like an impossible case for us as a Christian or as a Christian minister is possible with God. All things are possible with God.
When a Christian will seek the Lord on a daily basis there should be no fear of being demonized. The strongest part of you that is considered a gift from God is your will. God has given every person a will to choose. When we align our will up with the will of God then no demon will be able to touch you.
Ephesians 6:10: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Putting Jesus first in your life is important, especially in the last hour of the Church of the Lord. We must stand strong for ourselves and for the people we are standing in the gap for in prayer. Beware of becoming Demonized through excessive sin.
