I was not sure that I wanted to involve myself in this thread at all. I do not concern myself with "demonic" threads as a rule. My background is
simple and you can read my threads or posts by simply going to my profile. I preach on Sundays and I don't think anyone on this site would accuse me
of not being a Christian, they might disagree with me; but, they would tell you I am a believer.
My take on you is that you are young, you are a believer and you believe strange things are happening around you and your family that disturb you and
that you believe may be demonic. I will speak to you as a Christian and if you are just making it all up to get a response, it would not change my
answer one bit. Demons have no power over humans other than what we give them. Read the story of Job, the best that the Devil could do was cheap
parlor tricks, he could not lay his hand on Job and nothing has changed since then.
I will accept your premise for a moment that you are hearing knocks on doors and seeing images, so what, how does that effect you. If that is the best
that demons can do then laughter and ignoring it would seem to be the best approach. The Devil, as described in the bible, is an imbecile, an idiot.
He was wrong about Job and wasn't even able to positively identify Jesus while Jesus was in the desert. The Devil is not all knowing, all powerful nor
is he omnipresent (he is not everywhere at once). He is a moron and his followers (demons) are even dumber. Do not worry nor fret about noises and
images, they have no power. If you have faith in God as you implied, then stop worrying and go about your business. Anything attempting to upset will
quickly find that there are better places to spend their energy then trying to upset you. Peace.
i have to disagree with you a little,talking about Job, was the taking all of his live stock and killing his children a polar trick. the only reason
he wasn't killed was because God told satan not to kill him
or Acts 19:14-16 where the the demon possessed man whopped up on the seven sons of sceva the jewish high priest, and chased them out of the house
naked.also very real harm.
and satan is far from being described as a imbecile.here are just a few examples, Gen 3:1 Mat 24:24, 1 Peter 5:8, 1 Cor 21:8.all of these verses are
far from describing a imbecile. satan and his minions are a bunch of sneaky petes, and could fool just about every one. that's why we are told to be
and as far as not knowing who Jesus was, we see that in Luke 4:1-13 the last verse he left him until for a season.
he was trying to tempt him as a man not as the son of God. i e appealing to flesh and blood not spirit.he was trying get him to deny God, while he was
weak, trying provoke him through hunger, greed, pride and faith that is in the human flesh.
he knew very well who he was, just like the the two demons cast into the pigs, just like satan, they knew him on sight, they were in heaven with him,
and saw him before the were cast out of heaven.
don't sugar coat it,
