    "Submit yourselves,then, to God. Resist the devil and HE WILL FLEE from you" James 4:7

    And in doing this, we use our will to choose to follow GOD by resisting the devil. This is a way of proving our love for Christ and willing to follow Him. Otherwise, we are simply rejecting His ways the same way Adam & Eve first done so (The Fall)

    This is a great post thankyou Chad! It concerns me when and if I willfully sin for a period of time and worry that it means I'm rejecting God for good, especially since I have been 'enlightened' and baptised etc. However nothing can separate us from the love of God. I realise everyday we must put the armour of God on and resist temptation daily. When I have willfully sinned for a time, such as peeking at astrology books over a year, then I notice I get demonically attacked soon after. Lord please help me to stand up stronger to long-standing sins which may tempt me in difficult times and instead may I trust totally in You. In Jesus' name.

    Stylez,
    If you are a believer in Christ, then its very likeley that there is demonic activity around you. First, remember that they are afraid of you. You have no reason to be afraid of the fallen angels. Any thing in the Word of God is a good response to evil, as our Lord Jesus set the example when He was tempted in the wilderness by Satan. Also, remember that, if you are a true believerin the Lord, you have the authority to tell demons to leave in Jesus' name, and they have to flee. Will they come back? If you let them. Give the devil and his angels no place in your life that they might develop a stronghold. Through Jesus Christ, you have power and authority over them. I'll be praying for you.

    Though not always:

    And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
    (Joh 9:1-3)

    Good article!

    Please pray for me Brothers and Sisters, I experienced a very evil thing earlier today! Long story short, I've been draining the Spirit, and I gave into myself, and the devil, again and sinned. Well, I felt something really wrong, and later on that night, I think it was 3 or 4 AM sometime, I was watching something and I got up and changed it and went to sit back down, and when I did, I heard whispering...It was slow at first, and I didn't understand what was happening and I heard 'something' whisper my name.

    I've heard the Lord speak to me in an audible voice before, as we all know is possible, and we also know that demons and satan himself can speak to you. When I heard it I INSTANTLY knew WITHOUT A DOUBT that that most definitely was not from God.

    I felt myself being attacked, but I also felt unbelievable strength, and I went into my mom unstable and crying, because I really couldn't believe what had just happened, I STILL CANT BELIEVE IT! My mother prayed for me, then we prayed together, and I prayed more, read the Bible, and prayed even more and I took authority over that evil spirit, whether it was the devil himself or his minion. My faith has been restored fully and now I have absolutely no doubt in me, I feel stronger than ever because of this experience as evil as it was. But, like Mike stated, they can come back, so please help me with this. I am not lying and I know what I heard it was a very clear audible voice, and it had a very evil presence.

    Yeah; once I woke up at 3:28 a.m. and all of a sudden felt this very evil presence surrounding me; it started putting in my head blasphemies and curses. I just remember turning to my bible and the moment I opened it, the evil went away. Another time I heard what sounded like a loud bang wake me up -_- One time (during the time I had been astray) I felt something evil entering me, and I just remember saying "Lord, please help me! I want this evil gone!" or something like that; I felt my entire body surge for a few seconds; I literally couldn't move for 3 seconds. I think that was my wake-up call that I needed to turn back to God.

    And another time, I was having a dream (or actually a nightmare) where this guy at the end was growling really low and it ended in a very high pitched screech. I woke up and just asked God for His protection; I felt this tingling feeling go through my body; as if God was putting His arms around me.

    late night encounters with evil

    One of my favorite stories from the life of that great man of God, Smith Wigglesworth, is when he was awakened in the middle of the night by loud raucus downstairs. He got up and went down to see what was going on. There, he stood face-to-face with Satan (NOT a demon, but the "prince of the airs" himself). Now, remember that Lucifer was the most beautiful angel God created, and the Bible says nothing at all about his appearance changing. In fact, it says that he appears as "an angel of light". Really, if he looked anything like what most people picture the devil, could he seduce anyone? So, Smith was face-to-face with Satan in all of his glory and splendor in appearance. The devil had been tearing Smith's living room apart to try to rob the man of peace. Smith Wigglesworth recognized the devil. The devil stood looking at him. Then Smith said:" Oh, it's just you." And the man went back to bed! True story!
