Can Christians Have Demons?

Demons are fallen angels who followed Lucifer after his defeat in heaven. They love to make either habitation in the lives of humans. The Bible does not specifically say that believers cannot have demons living in them.

Many believe that if you are a real Christian, you cannot have demons; because they feel Jesus cannot live together with the devil in the same heart. It’s true it should not happen but it does. We are triune beings and our salvation affects the whole man. It’s important to keep in mind that salvation in Greek is “sozo.” Sozo is to save, to deliver, to protect, to preserve, and rescue from danger. Sozo is used in Matt.1:21 when it refers to our sins being forgiven. Sozo is used in Matt.9:22 when it speaks of healing of woman. Sozo is used in Luke 8:36 when it talks about man being delivered from demons.

Our spirit is saved. Our soul is being saved. Our body will be saved. Share on X
