In the beginning all mankind was made up as spirit people with a flesh covering
Somewhere along the line religion entered, and made humans believe they are just a body.
We are actually 3 Fold parts consisting of Body, Soul and Spirit.
Within the 3 Fold are sub parts.
So in actuality we are mind, body, soul, spirit, will, and emotions.
It is our spirit that was made in the likeness of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
It is our Spirit Man that contains the 7 Spirits of God.
“God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. [Ps. 104:30; Heb. 1:2; 11:3.]” Genesis 1:26 AMPC
“And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:24 AMPC
The moment a person accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior the Holy Spirit comes to dwell inside and makes His home inside of us. This is the part of us that is totally God, and the only part of us that can not be afflicted by fleshy things, and yes even demonic things.
Let’s look at the picture diagram above for a moment and the placement of the spirit part of us.
Do you notice it is in the stomach region, the gut per-say.
How many times have you heard the following eufenisims.
I have a Gut feeling, Gut instinct, a Moms Gut instinct.
There is a reason for that and it’s because Holy Spirit lives in the Gut.
Holy Spirit is, was, and always will be that Gut instinct.
Holy Spirits habitat inside of us was modeled after the tabernacle.
The other parts of us are the Fleshy soulish parts, they are the parts that can and do sin.
These are the parts that get us in trouble, the parts the enemy keeps a close watch on for one of our gates to open.
Gates you say, what kind of gates do we have inside of us?
“The hearing ear and the seeing eye–the Lord has made both of them.” Proverbs 20:12 AMPC
“My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; Proverbs 4:20-21 NIV
“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.” Galatians 5:16-17 NIV
“However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him—”1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV
I’m sure many of you remember this childhood song
Be Careful Little Eyes What You See
So now comes the question
Can a blood bought believer be afflicted with demons?
The answer is a resounding yes, of course they can.
Can a person be possessed?
In the Hollywood sense no, that is a twisting of the biblical meaning of possessed.
Possessed in the Bible is Daimonizomai which means to be under the power of a demon.
Your inner temple where your spirit man dwells with Holy Spirit can never be touched, oppressed, or possessed. But in the scriptural sense the outer courts can be demonized which comes from the word above daimonizomai.
A believer can also be oppressed and afflicted in all of their outer courts.
Many people say that a believer can not be afflicted, so can that be as tradition has taught differently?
Doesn’t scripture say “Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39 AMPC”
Yes of course it does, and blood bought believers of Christ Jesus who have asked Him to be Lord of their lives can never have their spirit man separated from Jesus. But keep in mind our flesh won’t follow us to heaven.
This is one major reason that over, and over, scripture says to take control of your flesh.
Generational, or Personal sin can enter through the gates infecting us.
The good news is that Jesus already died for our sins and gave us the power to overcome and flip those tables in our outer courts, we just need to ask for help.
Here is a short prayer Jesus downloaded to me that takes ALL legal rights of the enemy away.
