It basically means whether it was inadvertently or done on purpose such as playing with the Ouija board and things to that nature. That would truly give a demonic presence legal rights into your life. Or you went ghost hunting thinking it was harmless all the time and everything turned out fine until 5 days later now the person realizes they brought home a demon. In these kind of cases, if you can possibly find out what the legal rights are that these vile demons are using to be able to attach to that person, get them properly taken care of by binding and broken before the Lord, and then cast the demons out of that person if they are on the inside of their bodies, or cast them off that person if they are attacking them from the outside of their bodies. I believe that our God is a God of perfect order and reasoning. And if demons are able to get inside of a person’s body, then there has to be some kind of specific reason that has allowed this to occur with them. Otherwise, we would all be having demons living on the inside of us 24/7.
This falls into the Spiritual Warfare category. Legal rights can be handled. There is nothing God can not defeat. With the word of Jesus we have so much power! But only through Him and our faith in Him. Otherwise it won't work. In my opinion, everybody I know has different beliefs on this subject so I'm certainly not trying to step on toes. I'm just giving the most valid answer I can give. In this world we won't always know the answers to some questions until were on the other side. It's kind of a scary thought I guess if your not at peace with where your going. But this subject definitely falls into spiritual warfare there's no doubt about it. In case you don't know what spiritual warfare is I'll talk very briefly about it and put its definition below.
What Is Spiritual Warfare?
"Concept of taking a stand against preternatural evil forces. It is based on the belief in evil spirits which are able to intervene in human affairs. Various Christian groups have adopted practices to repel such forces, as based on their doctrine of Christian Demonology. Prayer is a common form of spiritual warfare among Christians. Other practices may include exorcisms , anointing oil, etc...." The mind is what the enemy really goes after. He knows all our sins and how to make us feel bad about ourselves and that we are not worthy of love or forgiveness.
Remember when I said when a person becomes converted and receives God's spirit they immediately enter into battle. They will have to fight these powerful enemies every day of their life until they die. The first major opponent Christians face is themselves. They must battle their own human nature with its self-defeating, sinful and destructive tendencies. The apostle Paul referred to this constant battle of the mind Christians face in his book to the Romans. The second lifelong opponent true believers must face is the devil and the world he has deceived into thinking and acting like he does (Ephesians 2:2, 1 John 5:19, Revelation 12:9, etc.). Jesus, in his prayer to the Father before his crucifixion, reveals the ultimate attitude of those who do not believe God against those who do. I have given them (the disciples and all Christians by extension) Your words, and the world has hated them. . . (John 17)
The above information is from a Christian point of view however, there are many views due to the different demonology's. There are many different kinds of demonology is out there and some people don't know that not to mention you will also get different answers pending the different religions. It depends on the individual.
It's very important to keep the enemy from finding legal rights. We are all human and we make mistakes and God loves us no matter what and sometimes we make mistakes and let the enemy in by giving legal rights. I will admit that I have. I was just stupid and messed with a Ouija board taking a chance. This was years ago and at that time I had, had about 3 years experience under my belt and I still made the mistake. This is not a game it's very dangerous. I can't imagine anybody wanting to do this, actually wanting to be a demonologist. It takes a toll. It's a calling, not a choice. It consumes your life.
When we as humans go through periods like weakness, such as emotional trauma, physical trauma, break ups, divorces, health issues etc...There are just so many areas to which the natural walls of defense in the physical, spiritual or emotional system of a person are weakened, it leaves us vulnerable for the enemy. The same is true with drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, and especially taking drugs, because they lower our defenses. We are wide open for the demonic to just slip right in our life. It happens so fast. As I've said many times, when you open that door it is extremely hard to get rid of any attachments or possession and oppression. Please think twice when presented with anything like Ouija boards and things to that nature. It's best to just be curious and leave it at that. It's not worth going further. It can and will destroy lives. Demons prey on people through those mimicking another like an aunt who passed, or parent. It's only to,gain your trust to draw you in.
Many people in today's world are suffering badly. Too sick to work and can't even get their medication. They live in shelters and eat at the food shelters. Some people are so depressed about the effect of the economy. When someone has been just through way too much and are desperate for peace they actually make a pact to the devil. All you have to do is say it out loud it's not like it doesn't count if it's not done in a certain way or in a special ceremony like a lot of people think. People call this "demonic vows". It's like a spiritual signature that the enemy and his minions use as a legal right to gain access into our lives. Demonic vows can be made consciously or unconsciously. Often when a person joins a cult or coven, they are required to make vows with the devil. Demonic vows can be made unconsciously just by dabbling with the occult. Just by getting curious about the occult and reading forbidden materials (including horoscopes) can give the enemy your spiritual signature. Jesus warns us not to make any vows of that kind. It speaks of it in scripture.
We need to remember we have the power of Jesus through His Word. He said "they shall cast out demons in my name". Have 110% faith and they will be very limited how hard they can harass you. Some people have been driven to suicide. I was almost one of them. I'm speaking from experience on this one. Don't let any fear get in your way. That's exactly what the enemy feeds off of. Always keep a personal relationship with Christ and the Father.
