Demons In Church
Mark 1:23, ‘And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out;….’ 1:21-28; LK. 4:33-37
Many people don’t associate demon-possessed people with places of worship. Yet most of the demons Jesus cast out were encountered in the church. Why would demon-possessed people be in church?
In some cases, the people were there because they were seeking help. The church, like a hospital, offers people the cure and therefore, attracts those who are sick.
In other cases, the devil sows these people in the church to spread spiritual disease. A church teaching the true Word of God should either try to evangelize these individuals or make them so convicted that they move on. Sad to say, demon-possessed people, can thrive in most religious settings today.
We always need to show love for the sinner as Jesus did, but we should cut the devil no slack. If a person wants to keep an evil spirit on the inside of them, they should not feel at home in the church.
Let the Spirit of God live through you as He did through Jesus, and you will either make people mad or glad, but there will not be indifference.

I was ministering in a Church on a regular basis when some witches came in. They tried to disrupt the service and I identified them as such and they left. I asked the Pastor and he told me they came often, but nothing to worry about. There ARE churches where the leadership IS spiritually blind and don’t recognize the harm that can be done. My wife and I ministered there as long as we could until the Lord moved us on. This was in Arizona and it is a lesson I will never forget! This is an important message and I for one appreciate it! Truth and AMEN! 👍💗🕊📖😇
