Most Christians have been erroneously taught that when they ask Jesus to come into their hearts that they are automatically saved and cannot have demons affecting them. This is when it begins for a person to then start pursuing the process of getting healed from their past soul wounds and delivered from the demons tormenting their souls. Unfortunately most Christians think they are good to go and just need to read the Bible and pursue the gifts of tongues, prophecy, etc but most will struggle to live a life evident of the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) with love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Most continue to struggle with fear, anger, sexual impurity, jealousy, strife, wrath, taking an offense and behave much like the world. That is why church goers don’t look much different from the world. It explains why the divorce rate is the same amongst those attending church and those who don’t attend. It explains why most churches are a mess. Demons can only affect a human if they have legal rights through sin, unforgiveness, anger, bitterness, generational curses, witchcraft curses, etc. The Lord looks upon our hearts and minds (Jeremiah 17:10) and if we have evil or impure intentions of our flesh and then we see the corresponding evil fruit in our lives on a consistent basis then Galatians 5:21 says that we will not inherit the kingdom of God. A real Christian actually has proof with the fruit of their lives every day. They actually treat their spouse and children with love, care, gentleness, patience and are good to them. Therefore they must get their past wounds healed and then command the demons to go.
What I have learned over the past few years of doing deliverance around the world is that when we are in the womb demons can begin to affect us. I have done deliverance sessions with thousands of adults since 2015 and so many have told me that they struggled with the spirits of rejection their entire lives when they learned after they were born that their mothers or fathers never wanted them or wanted a child of the opposite sex. Also if a child was born early, or the mother had significant challenges during the birth process (breach, C-section, etc.) then fear from the mother is usually transferred into their child. Also if our ancestors ever made evil declarations over us when we were in the womb or after we were born then those curse words carry with it negative effects and cause the child to struggle later in life – often with poor health or hearing demonic voices in their heads.
When a child gets wounded by harsh or negative words from a parent, step parent or anyone else in life, or gets ignored by a parent or views pornography or is touched sexually or raped, then they will hear demonic voices their entire lives until they have gone through inner healing and deliverance. Their soul (mind, will and emotions) are infected by those traumas and wounds and they will hear demonic voices in their heads that sound like their own thoughts but is not. The National Science Foundation did a study in 2005 that found that people could have 12,000 – 60,000 thoughts a day of which 80% of those thoughts were negative and 95% were repetitive thoughts of the day before. These thoughts are demonic and until the person gets their soul wounds healed by Jesus they will be tormented their entire lives. That is why so many church goers struggle in their lives to see much fruit of the spirit within them.
So since we live on earth, and demons are able to rule the world, then people will be hurt by other people who were hurt which causes wounds in their souls and then demons attach to those wounds and cause people to manifest with fear, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, manic episodes, triggered from their past soul wounds. Also people who have been hurt in extreme ways (i.e. Satanic Ritual Abuse, extreme sexual abuse, etc.) can give their lives over to Satan and become witches and warlocks and then come into the church and cast spells and curses on people, astral project into their homes and listen to their conversations, and cause more pain.
So it is essential that EVERYONE on earth pursue getting their past soul wounds healed by Jesus and then commanding their demons to be gone, otherwise they will struggle with hearing demonic spirits, being addicted to alcohol, drugs, smoking, sex, food, etc. and never become the true Christian that Jesus talks about as their fruit will be tainted. I know of so many people in the church who can pray in tongues, prophesy, sing, and have many other godly talents but simply cannot live a godly life, have a good heart or pure mind, and rarely see any fruit of the spirit evident in their lives.
Many Christians think that they are saved as soon as they ask Jesus into their hearts but if they don’t ever produce any godly fruit (and I am not talking about doing works for many people who are evil in their hearts will do works that look good in front of the public or the church) then that explains Matthew 7:15-23.
Matthew 7:15-23 NKJV
You Will Know Them by Their Fruits
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
I Never Knew You
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
So many people who have actually gotten their past soul wounds healed through having Jesus allow them to see why the people who had hurt them in their lives were also hurt themselves as the Lord showed them those who hurt them from His perspective, and then they could forgive them from their hearts, humble themselves from their pride and then they repented for their own sin and commanded their demons to go. They all agreed that they were not truly saved until after their inner healing and deliverance. At that point their lives truly changed and they could actually see godly fruit of the spirit evident in their lives.
So all of us have been hurt and wounded in one way or another, either through our parents, siblings, friends, enemies, pornography, sexual violations and our own sins that we committed, which give legal rights to demons to torment us. Until we go through deliverance we will continue to hear demonic voices in our thoughts and see images, trigger on other people and it will be very challenging to have good fruit in our lives. When we truly are honest, forgive all who ever hurt us, repent for our pride and sins and command the demons to go from us we will be able to have such joy and freedom like we have never experienced before in our lives.
