3. Demons Attacking You as a Result of What Someone Else May Have Done to You
This particular area has always been one of the most bothersome areas that I have ever come across when investigating and researching this part of our walk with the Lord.
It’s one thing to draw demons in on you as a result of your own sins and transgressions that you may have committed against the Lord. Most of the time in that area, you have nobody to blame but yourself for choosing to cross over into areas that you knew were forbidden territory by the Lord in the first place.
But this now brings us into the third major level when having to deal with direct attacks from demons. What happens in this area is that sometimes demons will be allowed to come in and attach themselves to a person as a result of what someone else may have done to that person.
Some examples of this would be women who have been raped, people who have been ritually abused in Satanic groups, people who have been victims of certain types of crimes and assault, wives who may have been severely physically abused by their husbands or boyfriends, and children who have been severely abused by one or both parents – either physically, verbally or sexually.
When I first came across this phenomenon, I wondered how or why God could allow demons to attach themselves to people who have been horribly abused or wronged by another person. This person was usually completely innocent of sinning or transgressing against God. So why would God allow demons to launch a full scale attack against the victim, especially if that victim is a born again Christian? Christian woman are being raped, molested and physically beaten every minute of every day across this country.
What happens in some of these types of extreme cases is that demons, once they see that person being physically violated to this kind of an extreme degree, realize that there might be a hole in that person’s hedge. Once they see that kind of an opening, they will then try and move in to see if they can attach themselves to that person.
What demons are looking for in these kinds of extreme cases is what that person’s response is going to be to the violation. If a woman has been raped, the demons will see if that person will start to exhibit and manifest emotions of hate, anger, bitterness and unforgiveness.
God will obviously allow the person to have some of these kinds of emotions right after all of this has occurred as a result of the initial knee jerk reaction most of us would have to this kind of severe trauma. I don’t believe the demons can get a foothold into that person right off the bat.
But if that person does not start to work himself or herself out of these kinds of negative emotions over a certain period of reasonable time, then the demons will have something they can attach themselves too, and that something are the negative emotions of hate, bitterness and extreme anger that will settle in that person’s mind, spirit and emotions over a certain period of time. And once the demons attach themselves to those kinds of negative emotions, then they will start to try and work it – trying to increase the frequency and intensity of those emotions.
We have another article in our site titled “How to Handle Negative Feelings When Wronged by Someone Else.” This article is in the Psychological Issues section of our site. In this article, I give you all of the appropriate Scripture verses on being able to deal with this kind of heavier problem.
The Bible tells us that whenever we get ready to stand to pray before the Lord, that we have to be willing to fully forgive anyone else who has ever trespassed against us – and that will include any vicious criminal who may have raped, assaulted or robbed you, or any violent and psychotic boyfriend or husband who may have physically abused you.
The Bible tells us that if we don’t forgive others who may have trespassed against us, then God will not forgive us when we trespass against others. And then to top it off, God may not even be willing to hear any of our prayers with the way He has this particular verse worded – and if He won’t hear any of our prayers, then you may have little or no chance on getting delivered from any type of demonic attack that may come your way.
The first thing any good deliverance minister will do on these type of cases is to make sure that the person will be willing to fully forgive the person who has seriously wronged them. Until this person is willing to fully forgive his trespassers, the demons cannot be cast out.
The demons have been feeding off of those negative emotions for quite some type and as a result, a mental stronghold has developed in that person’s mind and thinking. To start God’s inner healing process, this person has to be willing to fully forgive the person or people who may have hurt them in these more extreme type of cases.
Once the person is willing to fully forgive all of his trespassers in the eyes of God, then you can turn around and verbally engage with the demons, telling them that they now have to leave you in the name of Jesus Christ, since all of their legal rights have now been taken away from them since you are now willing to fully forgive your trespasser.
