He is the victim of multiple demoniac possession. Such a person can speak of himself in the singular and yet speak in the plural when the multiple personalities speak through his mouth.Carl W.

    When demonic warfare is engaged demons get organized
    When the angels gather the weeds is for destruction

    GOD is gathering them for destruction Joseph D. Absher

  3. Dan Irving says:

    The Legion was not very comfortable, was it? Neither was the demonized child who threw its host into convulsions at the sight of Christ. Neither were the deomized persons in the synagogue where Christ taught.

  4. Troy Day says:

    No they were not We just discussed this with Joseph D. Absher that both demons and demonized Christians get furious in the presence of deliverance ministry BUT my point again

    1. There were present where Jesus was => it is possible
    2. They did not leave until cast out => it is possible for them to be uncomfortable and still stay inside after words.

    I even dare speculate that because of the little talk they had with Jesus IF Jesus did not cast them out they would have remained in the said man of covenant.

    The church dont need to make demonized uncomfortable It needs to cast them demons out like Jesus did Just a little talk with Jesus just dont cut it out. Deliverance ministry and casting them out does Robert Borders

  5. Brother Dan Irving I was considering a reasonable response to your statement last night but had some other business.
    We believe God is omnipresent. The Holy Spirit is omnipresent but the devil still roams the earth seeking whom he may devour. I’m sure you must mean the emmursion of the holy Spirit in the life and soul of the believer. But I think you can understand my point. The Holy Spirit does not exclude unbelief or sin or the presence and influence of the enemy. If anything the holy Spirit exposes those things and necessarily must be present in God’s deliverance

  6. Troy Day says:

    Just for clarification The verse says:
    the devil as a roaring lion walketh about, seeking whom he may devour

    It is NOT explicitly stated devil resides on earth
    Our knowledge is he is ruller in the air
    Man was placed on earth to rule the worlds

  7. Dan Irving says:

    We are commanded to be “filled with the Spirit.” This suggests the believer, although professing faith, may be lacking in the Spirit of God. He may go to church, talk Christian-talk, preach/teach/minister, etc., and yet be depleted of the true agency of the Spirit of Christ; which is God’s presence. That void will be filled by something. God has a temple. But we know from scripture that corruptions may enter that temple; even THAT must be prepared and cleansed, and there is a day “when the Lord whom ye seek shall suddenly appear in His temple (Mal 3:1), and His effect is not without upset according to Isaiah, “Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Whom among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?” (Is. 33:14). To the effect we dwell, at rest, in the fire of God’s presence, is the extent to which God has purged His temple. But apparently, God’s power may operate without respect to our own condition, as “many” shall cast out devils in His name without Christ having known them. And so, the depleted professor of Christ may continue to minister by divine gifts and the power of the Spirit, while in this state. And, it appears a state which leads to profound presumption and deception.
