Demonic influence

I have a question – my partner was sexually abused as a child and brutally raped later in life. She has self harned ever since. Is she demonically influenced. She professes to be a Christian but I’ve never seen any evidence of it!

What do YOU think?

    Hi Rob

    If you look around society, you will find those that have piercing’s, scaring’s and the like. We wouldn’t automatically place them into the category of a (Self Harmer) per se, but they too are (demonically influenced) this isn’t Possession, it is from the outside. We can open ourselves up to all sorts of demonic influence, but a traumatic experience such as a rape, can surely cause this type of behavior, there are feelings of no self worth, a person in this state, would feel that if I am so unlovable then it doesn’t matter what I do to myself.
    You say
    “She professes to be a Christian”.
    1Co 12:3
    Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

    If this is what she professes, then lets accept that as true, lets not assume that she couldn’t be, you could go so far as to ask her what makes her think she is. Her answer should give you enough information to then know.

    If she has not, can not, or will not forgive those responsible, then she cannot be forgiven by God she is hindering her own deliverance in this matter.

    Mat 5:25,26
    25) Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
    26) Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

    She has in essence placed herself into the prison of un forgiveness.
    Try to get her to understand, her forgiveness of those that have harmed her, does not have to be anything more than intellectually understood, and performed because that “IS” the will of God concerning her.
    The more she can say I forgive them, the more God can deal with her heart, until she will come to the point of true forgiveness, that is the day she will be free to live her life without the scar.
    I say without the scar, because a scar of any kind only brings back the memory.

    In closing, you have said she is your partner, if you are not married, then pray for her as a friend, lift her up when she cannot do anything to help herself, If you are married then stand as her head, make the declaration that Satan cannot touch her, that is your position as a husband, you are her spiritual covering, if you take that position, then she cannot be touched, you two have become one flesh.
    Anything that Satan would try to throw at her has to go through you first.

    Eph 5:25-31
    25) Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
    26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
    27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
    28) So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
    29) For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
    30) For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
    31) For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

    O God King of the Universe, I come to you in humble obedience, that we should pray for one another, my Heavenly Father, I speak your Grace into this situation, for You have said My Grace is sufficient for thee.
    I declare victory over Satan, I stand with this man, for this woman, in agreement with him, taking authority over the enemy, I speak healing into this situation, In Jesus name I set the captive free.
    “AMEN” Hallelujah thank you Father for the ability to come to you for those that can’t come on their own.


  2. I met a person yearsago that was unloving,uncaring,angry,bitter,resentful,had fits of rage and was violent,but claimed to be a christian.As I began to seek out the lord on this persons behalf I was just wanting to walk away from the friendship but the Holy Spirit said are doubting what I can do through this person to see my love?Well I realized than God can do all things.So I stayed friendswith this person and after 2 years of continualley reaching out and just showing Christ love this person not only leads a prayer group now and helps out with the mentalley ill but this person is a big part of my minestry and this person no longer suffers from any of those things I pointed out.How is this possible because God is awesome and his love is greater than we can imagine.So if we walk in the fruit of the spirit and our love is sencere God can melt hearts.Be blessed Tim

  3. My friend, discover how through the help of the Holy Spirit you can help her. She has been abused by men and satan. She must be freed. But you must be free first.. Ask God to show you how.. We will pray for you..

  4. Based on the information you give alone, I would be pretty confident to say that your partner is demonically oppressed.

    From what I know demons can come in during ungodly sexual experiences, and if there are issues of UNFORGIVENESS there is no question – demons will be there.

    Your partner needs to get a revelation of God's love, trust in God, repent and forgive the abusers.

    Unpacking the full meaning of those statements though implies quite a lot. Prayer will be needed.

      But you can’t paint with a wide brush over every situation. Every sexual experience outside of marriage is ungodly and does not mean it is tainted by demons.

      We don’t need demons to do evil, we can do most of it pretty well on our own, people all over the world claim to be christians but are not part of Father’s tree.

      • Timothy Luke says:

        Adam and Eve didn't have demons before they sinned, so you are right… we don't need demons to do evil. However, when we sin, we open the door to evil spirits and "give place to the devil" as scripture says. Unforgiveness opens us up to tormentors, says Jesus Christ in Matthew 18. Timothy

  5. But this I can say…by their fruit you shall know them. People don’t have to under the influence of a demon to do wrong. King David committed adultery without any help, but he did count the people with Satan’s help.

    • I have been in the delivance minestry for over 20 years and many people have got this idea that demons or Satan is around every corner.When I wrote my first book A PSYCHIC DISCOVERS JESUS,I did some thing that to many people dont do,I pointed out my past as a Satanist and as a psychc but through out the book I gave glory to Jesus Christ.My bishop said he has heard or read over 1000 terstimonies and 99% give glory to Satan and than give God 1% of glory.So many people e mail me and think they have all these needs and they need to do all differnt kinds of things to get well but to many people think if I just spend allot of money than I will get well.Infact I sent an e mail to awoman one time to where a king wanted to get well and he seeked Elijah and Elijah said get in the water 7 times and you will be made well and the Bible pointed out that the king was mad because he wanted Elijah to do or say something real spirtual.Well this woman I sent an e mail to to help her got really mad at me because according to her it was going to cost allot of money for her deliverance.See I dont charge money nor do I beg for money because what God has given me,how can I charge for it.My books yes I do sale but my help I dont charge for.So many people claim a demon did this or that but 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 points out we need to cast all thoughts and imaginations down that try to exalt themselves above the knowledge of God.When I spoke at a conferance about mental problems people claimed they were healed but all I did was point out cast down evil thoughts.See we serve an awesome God the question is will we believe it.Be blessed Tim

    • Timothy Luke says:

      "Know ye not to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey, whether of sin unto death, or obedience unto righteousness." Romans 6:15-17. When we sin, we are serving someone. Jesus showed us who it is, "you are of your father the devil, for he was a murderer and a liar from the beginning, and the father of it."

      There is more to this picture than it appears you realize. The Bible does not say David did not need "help" to sin against Uriah and Bathsheba. Is there scripture you have in mind that says David did not have demonic influence?

      Ephesians 2:2-3  "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation (conduct) in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."
