  46. 46. Matt 9:32-33, Demonic Possession? GotQuestions.org• The Bible gives some examples of people possessed or influenced by demons.From these examples we can find some symptoms of demonic influence andgain insight as to how a demon possesses someone. Here are some of thebiblical passages: Matthew 9:32-33; 12:22; 17:18; Mark 5:1-20; 7:26-30; Luke4:33-36; Luke 22:3; Acts 16:16-18. In some of these passages, the demonpossession causes physical ailments such as inability to speak, epilepticsymptoms, blindness, etc. In other cases, it causes the individual to do evil,Judas being the main example. In Acts 16:16-18, the spirit apparently gives aslave girl some ability to know things beyond her own learning. The demon-possessed man of the Gadarenes, who was possessed by a multitude of demonsIn addition to these physical or emotional distinctions, one can also look atspiritual attributes showing demonic influence. These may include a refusal toforgive (2 Corinthians 2:10-11) and the belief in and spread of false doctrine,especially concerning Jesus Christ and His atoning work (2 Corinthians 11:3-4,13-15; 1 Timothy 4:1-5; 1 John 4:1-3)…”

It is important to note thatnearly all, if not all, of these characteristics may have other explanations, so it isimportant not to label every depressed person or epileptic individual as demon-possessed. On the other hand, Western cultures probably do not take satanicinvolvement in people’s lives seriously enough.

Based on the above scriptural passages and some of the experiencesof missionaries, we can conclude that many people open their lives up to demoninvolvement through the embracing of some sin or through cultic involvement(either knowingly or unknowingly). Examples may includeimmorality, drug/alcoholabuse that alters one’s state of consciousness, rebellion, bitterness, andtranscendental meditation. There is an additional consideration. Satan and his evilhost can do nothing the Lord does not allow them to do (Job 1-2). This being thecase, Satan, thinking he is accomplishing his own purposes, is actuallyaccomplishing God’s good purposes

  55. 55. 2:15 Psalm 32:6-7 Philippians 4:11 12Isaiah 53:6 1 Corinthians 10:13Matthew 9:36, The Lord is myShepherd• The Lord Is My Shepherd•• By Melvin Newland••Turn with me this morning to the 23rd Psalm, perhaps one of the best loved passages in the Bible. We often read it in times of stress or sorrow.•• But I would like you to see it in a slightly different way this morning. Now that were in the fall season & Thanksgiving, Id like you to see in this Psalm three great reasons for us to bethankful unto God.•• The 23rd Psalm begins with these familiar words, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want."•• When someone says, "I shall not be in want," we need to sit up & take notice because this is an age of discontent. Listen to these words by Jason Lehman:•• It was spring. But it was summer I wantedThe warm days, & the great outdoors.It was summer. But it was fall I wantedThe colorful leaves, & the cool, dry air.It was fall. But it was winter I wantedThe beautiful snow, & the joy of the holiday season.It was winter. But it was spring I wantedThe warmth, & the blossoming of nature.•• I was a child. But it was adulthood I wantedThe freedom, & the respect.I was 20. But it was 30 I wantedTo be mature, & sophisticated.I was middle aged. But it was 20 I wantedThe youth, & the free spirit.I was retired. But it was middle age I wantedThe presence of mind, without limitations.Then my life was over, & I never got what I wanted.•• Many people never seem satisfied, & almost everybody wants more. A little child wants more toys & more television time. A teenager wants more freedom & more popularity. Mostadults want more possessions & more leisure time. And as we age, we want more health, more friends, & more loyalty from our children.•• Yet, listen again to these words of the Apostle Paul that we looked at last Sunday, "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, & I knowwhat it is to have plenty.•• "I have learned the secret of being content in any & every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want" (Philippians 4:11 12).•• Obviously, God wants us to be a happy, satisfied people. We shouldnt be restless & jealous, always chafing about what we dont have. There should be a spirit of thankfulness in us thatbrands us as belonging to Him.•• So with the 23rd Psalm in mind, notice 3 great reasons to be thankful.•• IN THIS LIFE THE GOOD SHEPHERD GIVES US ALL WE NEED

Mark 5:1-20 Luke 4:33-36 Acts 16:16-18 1 Samuel 16:14-152 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5 Leviticus 17:7; Deuteronomy 32:17; Psalm106:37 Matthew 9:32-33, Demonic Possession?• Question: "What does the Bible say about demon possession / demonic possession?"Answer: The Bible gives some examples of people possessed or influenced by demons. From these examples we can find some symptoms of demonic influence and gain insight as to howa demon possesses someone. Here are some of the biblical passages: Matthew 9:32-33; 12:22; 17:18; Mark 5:1-20; 7:26-30; Luke 4:33-36; Luke 22:3; Acts 16:16-18. In some of thesepassages, the demon possession causes physical ailments such as inability to speak, epileptic symptoms, blindness, etc. In other cases, it causes the individual to do evil, Judas being themain example. In Acts 16:16-18, the spirit apparently gives a slave girl some ability to know things beyond her own learning. The demon-possessed man of the Gadarenes, who waspossessed by a multitude of demons (Legion), had superhuman strength and lived naked among the tombstones. King Saul, after rebelling against the LORD, was troubled by an evil spirit(1 Samuel 16:14-15; 18:10-11; 19:9-10) with the apparent effect of a depressed mood and an increased desire to kill David.Thus, there is a wide variety of possible symptoms of demon possession, such as a physical impairment that cannot be attributed to an actual physiological problem, a personality changesuch as depression or aggression, supernatural strength, immodesty, antisocial behavior, and perhaps the ability to share information that one has no natural way of knowing. It isimportant to note that nearly all, if not all, of these characteristics may have other explanations, so it is important not to label every depressed person or epileptic individual as demon-possessed. On the other hand, Western cultures probably do not take satanic involvement in people’s lives seriously enough.In addition to these physical or emotional distinctions, one can also look at spiritual attributes showing demonic influence. These may include a refusal to forgive (2 Corinthians 2:10-11)and the belief in and spread of false doctrine, especially concerning Jesus Christ and His atoning work (2 Corinthians 11:3-4, 13-15; 1 Timothy 4:1-5; 1 John 4:1-3).Concerning the involvement of demons in the lives of Christians, the apostle Peter is an illustration of the fact that a believer can be influenced by the devil (Matthew 16:23). Some referto Christians who are under a strong demonic influence as being “demonized,” but never is there an example in Scripture of a believer in Christ being possessed by a demon. Mosttheologians believe that a Christian cannot be possessed because he has the Holy Spirit abiding within (2 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5; 1 Corinthians 6:19), and the Spirit of God would not shareresidence with a demon.We are not told exactly how one opens himself up for possession. If Judas’ case is representative, he opened his heart to evil—in his case by his greed (John 12:6). So it may be possiblethat if one allows his heart to be ruled by some habitual sin, it becomes an invitation for a demon to enter. From missionaries’ experiences, demon possession also seems to be related tothe worship of heathen idols and the possession of occult materials. Scripture repeatedly relates idol worship to the actual worship of demons (Leviticus 17:7; Deuteronomy 32:17; Psalm106:37; 1 Corinthians 10:20), so it should not be surprising that involvement with idolatry could lead to demon possession.Based on the above scriptural passages and some of the experiences of missionaries, we can conclude that many people open their lives up to demon involvement through the embracingof some sin or through cultic involvement (either knowingly or unknowingly). Examples may include immorality, drug/alcohol abuse that alters one’s state of consciousness, rebellion,bitterness, and transcendental meditation.There is an additional consideration. Satan and his evil host can do nothing the Lord does not allow them to do (Job 1-2). This being the case, Satan, thinking he is accomplishing his ownpurposes, is actually accomplishing God’s good purposes, as in the case of Judas’ betrayal. Some people develop an unhealthy fascination with the occult and demonic activity. This isunwise and unbiblical. If we pursue God, if we are clothing ourselves with His armor and relying upon His strength (Ephesians 6:10-18), we have nothing to fear from the evil ones, forGod rules over all!RecommendedResources: Logos Bible Software and Unseen Realities: Heaven, Hell, Angels, and Demons by R.C.
