God Delivered me from Demonic Spirits

Christians and Demonic Spirits

Some say, a Christian cannot be possessed by demonic spirits, I beg to differ. The accounts in this story, are right out of a horror movie, and if I had not experienced them personally, I would be hard pressed to believe it! I was a young believer saved about a year, loved the Lord and was so excited about finding God'In 1978, the Holy Spirit delivered me from demonic spirits, and their oppression. s salvation and I was totally committed to serving him!

I prayed, read and studied God's Word faithfully. I was filled by the Holy Spirit; but there was something wrong, something that I was not aware of. As a teen and young woman, I had gotten spiritual readings from mediums and later involved in a cult called Santeria. I was very attracted to the supernatural and did not realized this was evil.

I later met a woman named Veronica, became my comadre (God mother) and, took place in rituals that involved animal sacrifice and spiritual baths (in Spanish - prepara) for the purpose of cleanings of evil. These were the things that allow demonic spirits entry into my life.

Spiritual Warfare and Fighting Demonic Spirits

One Saturday afternoon, at Joy Fellowship,Church in the Bronx, New York, I attended a week-end school of evangelism. My Pastor was there and our guest teacher, as well as the men and woman who came to participate. The group of us was holding hands, praying in a circle; when suddenly some unseen thing, grabbed me and yanked me by the back of the collar.

I was actually lifted off my off my feet and only my toes touched the floor. I was confused and terrified, and began to scream, “Somebody help me!” People looked at me with shock, and horror, as I was a part of a small home fellowship, where nothing like this had ever happened, ever.

One of the ministers came to me and said,“open your eyes, stay with us, don’t close your eyes. ” I began to feel better, and the demonic spirits seem to release me, for that moment, and the group resumed praying.

Again, the demonic force grabbed me and I was thrown against the front door. I reverted to a little child. I remember crying and saying, “I want to go home.” I didn’t understand what was happening, and felt so helpless.

IJohn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
IJohn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

My Pastor Steps In

Finally, my Pastor, Martin Bender, told some people to take me to a back room in the house. When two men grabbed me, I began to fight them and scream, “Don’t touch me!” “Take your hands off me!” My skin hurt and felt like it was burning when they touched my arms to carry me away. My Pastors and Luke Weaver a visiting Pastor followed.

I was still crying and had my eyes closed. I remember saying, "why is this happening to me?" My Pastor, calmly called my name and said, “Pamela, open you eyes and look at me.” As my Pastor spoke to me, I could see his lips move, but there was a delay before I could hear each word. Sister Bender was there, concerned and praying for my deliverance. They had never experienced anything like this, and neither had I.

I struggled to understand my Pastors words, as It sounded as If he was speaking from a mountain cliff and his words echoed. I opened my eyes and looked and my Pastor and in front of my eyes,were another pair of yellow eyes, looking through my own eyes!

Casting Out Devils

Luke Weaver the visiting Pastor and my Pastor began to rebuke the devil and it did not take long. They spoke very calmly, but with authority rebuking the demonic spirit and commanding it to come out. Very shortly, I felt the demonic spirit leave and my sight and hearing became normal. I must have cried for an hour or more, as God was setting me free.

Ephesians 11:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Closed Doors and Deliverance

That day, I did not understand how this could happen to me; but as I reflected on my life, I realized, I had opened demonic doors before I came to the Lord. Many times spirits will hide or lay dormant until they are pressured by and anointed service or in the presence of someone with the authority to cast them out.

For three days, I felt a heavy prescience of the Holy Spirit ministering to me, comforting and strengthening me. Later, in my ministry, the Lord used me to bring deliverance and freedom to others. Demonic oppression is a very real thing and yes, a Christian as well as an unbeliever, can be oppression by a demonic spirit. I was so blessed to be at the right place at time to get my deliverance. God is a deliverer and who the son sets free is free indeed!

Romans 8:15 - For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Stan, thanks so much for sharing you story with me. The demonic world is real. I love the title of you book and wish you much success with it.

Stan Rose 3 years ago

I can only say here that my wife and I, innocently enough, got involved via the Ouija board which began a non stop curiosity of the 'occult. Thank God we had 'short term' interests. However, over 18years and nearly getting divorced during this timeframe, plus moving over 3,600 miles over the three great divides from the East coast to Southern California.(supossedly to escape the 'spirits') ...we finally discovered the real "truth" about about the 'very real' demonic 'underworld. Two years ago we decided to write a book about our lives during that period. It has been recently published called: "Reaching Through The Veil of Deceit" and can be accessed at our webpage: www.theveilofdeceit.com. Sure, we'd love to see the book soar in sales for more financial leverage...but truly we wrote it in an attempt to save most (if not all) Americans the heartache of allowing their own curiosity in the occult and paranormal to cause the confusion, emotional, physical and financial harm that we experienced. Most of us here in our comfortable U S of A.. regard demons as a joke, myth or fairy tale. We would relish the opportunity of starting or joining a meetup group in Charlotte, NC to speak out quite candidly with those of you seeking to join hands in warning the public at large about the dangers of 'so-called' psychics, 'mediums', 'tarot card readers' and many other seemingly harmeless ventures. We can be reached at: stanjudy.rose@gmail.com. Hopefully, even just this limited conversation will give any curiosity seekers second thoughts !

What should I do if I am suffering demonic opression? Mine has been going on non stop for 4 years. Lately it has been getting much worse. This thing talks to me, growls through me in my voice, makes me have the worse thoughts possible, and when I say something bad about satan he knocks me in the back of the head. Total noghtmare is what my life is. I serve Jesus now, but for along time I blasphemied him and his religion out of hurt and disbelief. I think I may have even committed the unforgivable sin by many times making fun of the holy spirit. I never want to do the things he is trying to force on me but it won't stop. He tells me that God hates me and I am useless and that I have no chance at forgiveness. Is the unforgivable sin saying something bad about the holy spirit numerous times out of hurt and disbelief and how do I get set free? Please help me.

How comes my spiritual experience was removed? I thought what I had to say could have helped protect many from making the same mistake, whether it's New Age or Some old religion practiced by slaves it all comes from the same source..

Shikinah 3 years ago

I just want to say, that I can relate to many of the stories on here..I was wrongly misled by friends into the New Age movement, which endorses love and light and even use the name Christ at times. I received healing from a Reiki healer friend which later had devistating consequences, which didn't just effect me but friends of mine also. I had previously been a Christian, but stupidly believed that as long as the word Christ was used every thing was ok. To cut a long story short the demons wanted me to start a new religious cult in the name of the "I am" I received the power to heal and miraculous events would take place, people would stop me in the streets to hug me. But in my heart I didn't want this adoration and knew that I was nobody special, the demons even used certain individuals to quote bible scriptures from Isaiah to make it all look like it was from God. I would know that the holy spirit was present as it would indicate by making me feel it's presents, one day I felt a kiss on my lips and knew something wasn't right. I remember the entity telling me to not call on the name Jehovah as it was being used in a bad way but to use the "I am" instead..the next day I went down to the coast to pray deeply for guidance, as I knew I had now opened the gateway to something more sinister, I cried out to Jah in Jesus name to help me and felt a sudden calmness, but knew this was not the end of it..That evening I was physically held down and raped by what I was lead to believe was the Holy Spirit, night after night I was tortured mentally and physically, I had to cut contact with my friends, throw out anything to do with the occult, I was literally on the verge of insanity, I even saw an entity fly from underneath my quilt like a flash of light and through the window. It is eight years on and it has lost most of it's power, but where I had received the healing a tumour had grown in it's place, which had to be removed, leaving me partially paralysed. It causes my grief when it knows I'm going to teach someone benefits from the bible, but I pray for strength and the will to endure. These spirit beings are hard to shake off and some times may pretend to be gone, they will not give up with out a fight. But I have felt Jehovahs power through his son, like Job, sometimes we don't understand why we are allowed to suffer, but God knows what we can bear..and if we allow ourselves to be seduced by false teachings we can't expect that these spirits will give up without a fight..Look how when Jesus approached a demonised man, how the demons wanted to be put into the pigs instead, as the glory of Christs presence was too fearful for them. The same is true today, as we approach the last days these spirits are desperate for a body to possess, as they know Jesus Christ is about to return.. Despite my suffering I am stronger and less fearless now than I have ever been. Don't let fear keep you in restraint. And as the bible says when you call on the name Jehovah the demons shudder. I can now see why the demons set out to mislead me, as they too can have a glimpse into the future, and try and prevent any good works you may do in helping bring others to an accurate knowledge of truth.

Mathew 7:21-23 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of MY FATHER who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in YOUR NAME, and in YOUR NAME drive out demons and perform many miracles?'And then I will confess to them, 'I have never known you, remove yourselves far from me, you workers of evil.'

What we have to be careful of are wolves in sheeps clothing who profess to be doing Christs work in his name, who think they have the power to remove demons, when in fact they can be putting more onto you. Pray sincerely from your heart for the truth and for help, and test the spirit don't just accept anyone, as the devil can appear as an angel of light, even if possible to mislead the chosen ones.

Being attacked by a demon is very terrifying. I am very grateful there was people there who loved me and knew how to set me free, through the power that is in the name of Jesus! You are indeed correct, that by being involved with Santeria, this opened a demonic door for the enemy to come in. Tarot card, wiji board, and consulting with spirits is no joke.

Victoria Burke 4 years ago

We are created in the image of God the Father, son and Holy Spirit. We are triune beings created by a triune God. Our Body, Soul (will and emotions), Spirit- By doing the psychics, etc, it opened the spiritual doorway for the demons to get into your body and soul- not your spirit. ONLY a believer and born again believer can be delivered from demons such as what you experienced- I also was a victim- I had a deliverance in 2009 and then 7 worse came back because I had some spiritual doors still open- then 7 more deliverance's in 2010- I have been completely clear since then- I am a Holy spirit led on fire believer and warrior for Christ- My website is www.holysalvation.com. God Bless you sister, for I know of what you speak- My soul was sifted like wheat by the enemy- and GOD has given me the victory! Praise GOD- To Him be all the Glory and Praise!

Hello Mishelle! The enemy is always trying to gain entrance into our mind, and soul. He will always try to attack anyone walking in the light of Jesus. I am sorry you have experience so much pain. God can and will deliver you! The rituals you were doing are satanic in origin, so you need to address that. The are from the cult called Santeria or Yuerba! In calling on the 7 powers of God or spiritual guides, you made the situation worse. I want you to prayer this prayer and let me know how you are doing. FATHER, I rebuke the spirit of the devil and all his works, I reject all darkness and anything that is not of you. I ask that you please forgive me for any involvement in the occult, wash me in the blood of Jesus and cleanse me from all my sins. Jesus I invite you lead and guide my life. I now cover my self with the Blood of Jesus and command every ungodlgy power to leave my spirit, soul, body home and my family. I belong to God, and Satan, I reject you now and forever.

Praise God and all of his Glory. However, I felt as if he has abandoned me. I pray and I dont get a sign, sometimes I start to think where is God and what is taking so long. I have PTSD and Panic Disorder and i suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. i have been trying to go get back into church, which I have. i felt great hearing the word of God. It always feel as if he was directly talking to me. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one in the room and he is directly talking to me. I had a nightmare April 14th. I had a dream that i was at this strange old creepy house in a distant land. My husband and i were visiting this old place, then i seen a man play an organ (piano) and i seen these old creeply long hands...i was scared because in the backround of this rom was red and his shadow was black, and also his organ...i approached it and it went zooming direct to me and i was worried for my husband's saftey. Luckily in this dream my child wasn't in it. Then i grabbed the demon by its arm and i said with a firm voice " our father...uh our father" i couldn't remember the lords prayer for the life of me and it was mocking me, laughing at me...then i looked into it's eyes and i said "Our father who art in heaven, hollow be thy name...thy kindom come....."and i felt this wind blow really harsh and the demon fighting me and next thing you know i was sitting up screaming "Deliver us from Evil! Deliver us from Evil!!" and my husband was scared and that night i couldn't sleep right. Then the night before i had a dream that i was at another house with a little girl and she picked up this baby, that i thought it was a toy...but it wasn't. In my dream i was pregnant and i realized that i had a miscarrage but the baby was about a hand full of length...and i was crying on my knees and didn't know what to make of it. I woke up crying and didn't make sense to me. ( I previously had a misscarriage in October after my husband and I were activly trying for 2 years straight, i finally get married then we lose it.) This was the most devistatiting part of my life. I took 2 weeks off from work because of this.

Recently i contacted my chaplin at the local base chapel...i sent an email saying when would be a good time to talk to him. I have a feeling that evil spirits are trying to attack me and not want me to be happy. They see that im strong willed but sometimes they win. I'm confused and I dont know what to do. I'm currently in counseling, just started meds again (after i had finally stopped taking them because i didn't need them anymore)im going to try hypnotherapy and also talking to the Chaplain...im trying everything and the only thing that keeps me going through the day is Psalm 91 and my meditation CD's.

I was looking to getting baptized again, since my chapel is offering it...I want to do it again. I haven't been baptized since 2006 and now that my son is older and that i have a new family... ithink it would be nice for my 8 yr old gets baptized, my husband and myself. To me that would be a new beginning for me. As being born again. Any thoughts?

hard to understand for christians, im budhist, but i made the mistake of falling inlove with someone who has a demon in him and even though i ended it, he bore a grudge and has made my life hell....i meditate and i pray to budha and to jesus ( both work i know =hard to believe right?) but either work fine as they are both manifestations of the light...

he tried to possess me in my nightmare ( the demon in my loved one) and he tried to levitate me also...first he forced me to move against my will ( like 2 of me- me screaming in a panic for god, saying i rebuke you in the name of Jesus christ and Budha etc..)but prayers went unanswered...i was facing my shrine with buddha photos and my tibetan teacher...as if the demon wanted me to think- where is your god now??

just then i started to go unconscious ( in this lucid dream) from fear and despair as i tried every prayer ( which worked in my other nightmares he tormented me - rape you name it..) and finally i open my eyes and i shouted " in the name of ( i used my Budhhist faith words and also christ) I rebuke ME ! go back to hell!" and he left...i had a hangover that time...but that was the worst...i can't go ONE day without meditating or praying...not one.

and my teacher has told me to pray for both him and me so i do...i pray he gets released one day from his torment.

( and mine as well).

thankyou for sharing. totally believe you, i really can relate. :)

Juku, I know all about Santeria. I also know it is cultural for black and hispanic and we have been taught that there is people who practice this for good and some for bad. It is all bad. It is bad because to practice spirits are contacted and ask to help. The only one who can really help you is God and his son Jesus Christ. I remember when I was in NY and involved in Santeria, my Comadre told me that I needed to make Orcha or that I would go back on drugs. Back then I did not know the power of God through Salvation. Well God did heal me and I never went back to drugs again.

Juku first, I want you to pray to God, in the name of Jesus and ask him to forgive you for all your sins. Tell Satan that you reject him and all his works. (that should cover you going to the witch for help instead of God) Then I want you to ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Spirit. This is the spirit you need to lead and guide your life. Next, ask God to heal your body.

Here is the prayer:

Father, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask you to forgive me for all my sins, come into my heart and wash me clean.

I am sorry for going to the witch for help instead of you. I reject the power of Satan and want not help from him.

Now Jesus, fill me with the Holy Spirit, I need his help and guidance, I need His power. Thank you Jesus for filling me with the Holy Spirit.

Father, I ask that you heal my body, right not in the name of Jesus. I thank you for everything your are doing for me. Thanks you for saving me thank you for delivering and healing me, in Jesus name. Amen.

If you have any more questions drop me a line! Pam

Hi 2besure.. I was raised in a strict Roman Catholic home. I always new that there lurked evil. Growing up I had seen my fair share of demonic possessions and I knew it was no joke. However..a little over a year ago i started to have these extremely strange allergic episodes that unfortunately have lasted up until now. I went to a dermatologist as well as an allergist to no avail.. the only thing they could do was load me up on meds. Then these thoughts kept creeping in on me that maybe someone had done brujeria(voodoo) on me.. so i prayed and prayed but i had terrible episodes to the point that i went to the emergency room 3 times in a week cause i couldn't breathe and felt that my chest was caving in. So I thought that my husbands aunt who is into Santeria, could help me get some answers. Sure enough she told me that someone had been doing stuff to me and that i needed to get scratched to be protected. So going against my better judgment i did it.. rituals.. misas.. i even assisted during someone else's rayamiento.. then one night i had this horrible nightmare and i say nightmare cause there is no other way to explain it.. but a demon came to me in a dream and he looked horrible and i felt like he was sucking the life out of me til i forced myself to wake up. I was shaking so bad. I went to the Aunt and she said that it was one of my spirits and that it was ok. I decided that i wasn't going to accept that answer so I went to confession and talked to my priest and laid everything out. I asked God for forgiveness and felt like a million times better. I got all of the articles that i had acquired and threw them away.. far away. Went around my whole house spraying Holy water, Exorcised Salt & Exorcised Oil and reclaimed my home in God's name. I love and praise him all the time. I sometimes still feel tormented on occasion but I continue to go to church and pray to GOD to continue to help and protect me! I can't let it get the best of me.. I have to continue to live! His Aunt as well as her daughters don't talk to me like they used to.. they sort of avoid me now. But all I know is the one that I need to do right by is GOD and keep him happy!

I suffer from anxiety and have prayed to the Lord to help me. Medicine for this disorder just makes me feel like a zombie.

I read a book that if you are followed by evil spirits it can cause anxiety. God does not want you to live your life being tormented by evil spirits. So every time I feel one coming on I pray and chase the evil away. We are all Gods children and he does not want us to hurt. God loves us all unconditionally no matter.

I am a Christian and had many doubts about demons and our life being affected by them. Your story has just reinforced my theory about my illness.

Thanks for sharing.

Look forward to following you.

One of my biggest lessons was that a christian can have a demon... a Spirit filled child of God, but that day I saw the eyes of a snake in her eyes, she had strange questions for me and one week later...Jesus appeared to me in a dream and I was rebuked for trusting her on the belief system that she is a christian and that I did not listen to my inner discernment at the time..thus therefore made a wrong turn...I apologized to Jesus, and He helped me fix the wrong turn..Praise Jesus...

This is awesome, thank you for sharing it, it will set somebody free. Just like we plant seeds of Christ in us, there are also seeds of Satan planted in us, and they will return to the cleaned up house and bring 7 more demons worse than the first. It usually is visible when we begin to battle for the mind after being saved and we begin to renew our minds. Praise God for your deliverance. You can help heal many tormented Christians!

Ben, it happened to me and I still can't that it happened. I was an am still a very skeptical person. It is a totally true account. As a young woman, I was involved in Santeria and drugs, I believe this is where the demonic spirits came from. That was over 30 years ago and nothing like that has ever happened to me again.

Amen Daughter's of Judah. God is greater than the forces of darkness! We do not have to live in bondage. We serve a loving God, that will open the prison gates and set us free. John 3:8 For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Bless your heart for sharing this truth! I also had been a Christian for years and when I prayed for God to set me free from whatever was blocking me from intimacy with Him, He answered! I was set free in a dream (or night vision). The demons (I think there were six or seven of them) rushed into my head and my eyes shown like yellow fire. They would come in and go out, laughing and mocking.

The Lord spoke to my heart that this was Satan and to use scripture. I said, "Get thee behind me, Satan, in the name of Jesus Christ", but it didn't work! After battling more with them and getting to the point of complete weakness and exhaustion, the Lord asked me if I believed Jesus Christ was the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose again on the third day. I had to soul-search as much as I was able. I did!

I was filled with power and the Lord told me to speak the word again, with faith this time. I spoke it once and they were gone, never to return. We truly are saved by faith, amen! Jesus is the Authority over evil. Praise God!!!
