How Demons Enter

How Demons Enter



In our society, we attribute many problems which are actually spiritual (demonic) problems to merely social problems.  Demons enter into our lives through many ways which may seem innocent on the outside, but is in actuality an open door for demons to enter.  As warriors for Christ, we need to be aware of these doors in our lives, as well as our family and children, and be on guard and shut the these doors.


One of the most common entrances of demon is through channeling the spirits. Demons enter by invitation. The invitation to enter gives them legal ground to begin a oppression or possession. Demonic control is directly related to the time and effort a person engages in the channeling activity.

Negative Thoughts and Emotions

Another entrance demons use is through our negative emotions. Negative emotions are first the result of the person's wrong thinking patterns. If the negative emotions and thoughts are allowed to fester for a long period of time and demon can gain a "foothold" in the mind. The demon then gains influence begins to magnify the wrong thinking with more intense and hateful thoughts. If the person does not correct that intense negative thinking pattern but encourages the thoughts, the demon can gain more control of the mind by permanently entering the mind.
