Can a person have evil spirit if that person is born again or after being baptized with the Holy Spirit?
How can an evil spirit dwell along with the Holy Spirit? And what’s the difference between evil spirits, demons and devils?
I have heard that when the Holy Spirit is taken away from you, there will be a void which is filled by the evil spirit.
Below are my replies:
As a matter of fact, Nithiya, I was such a person and Jesus Christ, through a woman of God, cast that demon spirit out of me. Please watch and listen to my testimony on the subject at https://vimeo.com/244211708. Let me know if you have any more questions or need help in this area.
Evil spirits cannot dwell along with the Holy Spirit. REMEMBER a person consists of a body, soul and a spirit. We are actually a spirit. We live in a body. We have a soul, which is our mind, will and emotions. Now, when a person is born again, it is their spirit who is made a new and this is where the Holy Spirit resides or lives. Demons can NEVER take possession of a child of God's spirit. But they can in their soul and body due to disobedience. This is why the Apostle Paul ALWAYS tell us to walk according to the Holy Spirit. We still have our will and can choose which way we want to go. And when we are disobedient to God's truth, then this opens a door for demon spirits to enter in and work through our soul realm and/or body. There is no difference between evil spirits, demons and devils. These are different names the Word of God refers them to. They are ALL the same-agents of Satan and does his bidding or work. And after a person is born again, the LORD God NEVER takes away His Holy Spirit. He (the Holy Spirit) is ALWAYS there leading and guiding us into all truth. It's us who chooses to ignore, avoid or disobey Him. He will NEVER leave or forsake us. And I mean NEVER. ANY TIME we are disobedient to God's word and fail to repent and sin no more, this creates a void or door for demons to enter in our soul realm and/or body to do their evil work against God, through His children. Their only aim, desire and intention is to kill, steal and destroy our destiny as God's dear children on this earth. Many children of God are suffering from depression, suicidal thoughts, rejection, abandonment, loneliness, anger, sexual sins and etc. And this is because they have failed to commit to God so that they can continue to resist the devil and this is when the devil will flee or run from them in Jesus' name. The LORD God says that His children are destroyed due to their lack of knowledge of His Word, which is KNOWING Who they are in Christ Jesus and also where they are in Christ Jesus (seated with Him in the Heavenly Places). And when we do not know truth, Satan and his demons take advantage of our lack of knowing. Christ Jesus still today desire to set us free from ALL satanic oppression. And He does it through His Body, the Church, which are individuals or members who have the Holy Spirit living, dwelling, ruling and reigning in them. We have the Authority and Power given to us from the Father to overthrow the activities of Satan's kingdom on earth in Jesus' name. Shalom †
