What Is A Demon?
A demon is believed to be a force that can be conjured and controlled. They are also believed to have the ability to possess or inhabit the body of humans and the only way to rid the person of them is to conduct deliverance and/or Exorcism. Demons are portrayed differently in different cultures. Some believe demons to be actual physical beings that can take the form of anything, including animals. Others consider the real demons as more of a spiritual force of evil battling for one's soul. They have been feared and written about in almost every culture in one form or another for as long as history has been recorded.
Second Corinthians chapter 11 verse 14 tells us Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Demons can trick us and come to us as Angels of light as well. Like I mentioned already, Familiar Spirits are spirits that give an appearance of a person that is familiar to us. Here is a good example: Demons know the history of the property and the person, so they can take on their appearance of any person so you feel more at ease with communicating with them. Satan may have great power, but even the Arch Angel Michael depends on only GOD'S power when dealing with Satan. That speaks volumes doesn't it?
From what I understand these vile demonic entities have set up shop and rule with an iron fist. In Calcutta India, they have many millions of gods that they worship. Many have come out of this type of worship to have demons exorcised from them only to reveal that the god they thought was a deity was actually a demon. In Singapore, worshippers there must pay respect to a powerful dignitary that is the spiritual ruler of the area before they can go to a temple and pray and worship another god. Demonic entities are jealous for power and control, and most of all, worship. There are many demonically inhabited nations and America is becoming this way more and more. It's all over tv sadly. I hate watching the news.
To answer the main question about dwelling places......A lot of where demons have their dwelling places like a graveyards, very old buildings with a bad history etc...That is a good place to start. Oh why would somebody want to do that is beyond me. I warned a group today via email that we exchanged I warned people not to do it so we'll see what comes from that hopefully nothing Also, any places where a tragedy has occurred. The more horrific the tragedy, the higher the probability that there is a demonic element involved. If a horrific crime or murder has occurred on a property or building, it gives demons a legal right to stick close until a permanent solution can get done. PLEASE NO Ouija boards it's absolutely a horrible idea. My ever so humble opinion is they are portals. Demons can come out to our space if possible.
I found the following on which makes such a good point and it's valuable information. http://www.phoenix-arizona-paranormal-society.com/Where_Demons_Dwell.html "Not only do demons dwell over countries and nations but they dwell over cities as well. In places where crime is very heavy it is easy to see the rule of darkness over a given area. In places where churches have less and less influence, crime, murder, theft, corruption, and evil will be most active. If you look at statistics of types of crimes that occur in different cities, for example, murder may be more common in New York than in San Francisco. By checking these statistics out, one can figure out just what kind of entities are most powerful in any given area. In some circles this is called spiritual mapping. You can actually find out what kind of spiritual forces are at work by what kind of activity takes place in a given area. Political corruption can also be evident in a demonically influenced city and we see this kind of thing all the time on the news. It is my belief that demons are behind many of the scandals we see today in government."
Demons are extremely familiar with your mental archives than you are and they will without a You will never win this spiritual battle in your own strength. It's impossible and totally ignorant to think you're that special. You will only be successful when you draw your strength from the power base, God Himself. There you will find the strength and stamina to "stand against the wiles of the devil" (Ephesians 6:11) Satan's Nature is the nature of a man that causes him to act as he does. The same principle exists as we try to better understand Satan. John identified the devil as the originator and chief practitioner of sin (1 John 3:8). He further described Satan as “that wicked one” (1 John 5:18). Jesus called Satan a liar (John 8:44) and thief.
I found the following information very interesting and note worthy. I noted this on another blog I did a few months back and it really hits home with this topic as well. I obtained at http://www.deeptruths.com :..........Fear and stress is today's No.1 killer! Believe it or not, fear causes more sickness and more mental illness and more premature deaths than anything else on Earth! Doctors have discovered that heart muscle is actually DESTROYED when people are subject to great fear. Dr. Marilyn Cebelin, writing in the General Practitioner's newspaper, "Pulse," says the hormone, adrenalin, literally DESTROYS heart muscles when people are subjected to intense stress and fear. Canadian medical circles also report that WORRY increases chances of infectious disease, in that it weakens the body's ability to fight off germs. A recent study of cases of streptococcal infection, according to Dr. Robert Haggerty, revealed that one out of four cases of such infections occurred after prolonged trauma and anxiety. Heart trouble, high blood pressure, arthritis and stomach ulcers are all basically caused by worry, tension, stress.
Please know God's perfect love casts out fear. We have nothing without the love of the father. Because of him and Jesus we are protected. There may have been multiple times in your life or you could've died or have been seriously hurt and God intervened and you just didn't realize. He loves you so very much.
