Demonic Entry Points
Proper healing and deliverance entails “Whole Personality Deliverance”
A demon needs a legal reason which is found in the transgression or violation of the will of God, to torment a person.
This method uses a questionnaire that pinpoints where the problem began and why the demon was able to gain entrance, or what we call entry points. The open door most often is intimidation, based on fear. Fear is a sin because it is a form of idol worship in which the object of their fear is considered greater and more powerful than the almighty God and Jesus Christ. Absolutely know, beyond a shadow of doubt, that Satan is a defeated foe because Jesus Christ, your Savior and Lord, dethroned and stripped him from his power on the cross. (Col. 2:15; Heb. 2:14) The apostles admonished the Church repeatedly to “flee idolatry.” In the Old Testament Israel rather worshiped the idol gods rather than Yahweh, the true God of Israel, because they thought that the idol gods brought real prosperity.
People inherit physical weaknesses and curses.
Generational curses and attached demons will follow family lines – we call these inherited curses and demonic influences. For example, if a person was conceived out of wedlock (a bastard child) – in lust, so to speak, that person will often struggle with lust inherited from birth. If a father walks out of his family and marries again without properly dissolving (before the courts on earth and heaven) his sons from the second marriage will follow the same pattern.
Family involvement or previous personal involvement in the occult and Satanism.
These practices always open doors to the demonic. Even innocently done childhood activities, such as playing with an Ouija board, or telling ghost stories and calling up the dead at a slumber party, can be demonic entry points. We often need to cast out multiple spirits, the most common of which are witchcraft, death and/or suicide, and especially the spirit of fear.
Controlling and dominating parents.
These family dynamics cause rejection and rebellion resulting in mental and emotional disorientation of identity and purposes in the lives of their the children. Stunted emotions results in restricted decision making and relationships.
This causes major overload of the child’s emotions with adult responsibilities and the absence of a non-functioning parent in the family creates a vacuum which forces the child to fill the void by role(s) playing to keep the family in running condition. Family traumas are mainly caused by SINS OF COMMISSION (2) OR OMMISSION (5).
No father authority.
Growing up without proper father authority voids the child of the umbrella of protection and provision opens the door for direct and/or indirect demonic attacks, such as rape, etc. This often results in of passivity and lying.
The transfer of spirits trough identification and attachment.
The most common and often overlooked reason for demonization is the transfer of a spirit or even spirits. The opportunity for transfer often lies in the conscious or unconscious association with an curse through inheritance of sinful practice.
Another common entry point is victimization.
Children who have been abused (esp. srma) suffer enormous physical, emotional, psychological, and developmental damage. The destroyer (John 10.10) has traumatized the child, often threatening death (entrance of the spirit of death) to the child or loved ones if the child ever tells anyone about the incident. These children have ruined lives. Their marriages often fail because of the lack of bonding they experienced in growing up. They become abusers of others. The passive personalities have a tendency to even commit suicide. Often children have picked up demons through the family dynamics and through no fault of their own. It seems as though Jesus may have suggested the death penalty (see Mt. 18:6; Mk. 9:42; and Luke 17:1-2).
Rejection and shame are the main entry points.
Jesus commanded us to love one another. We are never told to hate, shame or reject anyone – quite the opposite. Love and forgiveness are two very important characteristics of the Christian religion. If a young person experiences strong, repeated rejection and shaming he or she may have a stronghold of rejection rebellion and fear that needs to be dealt with. (2 Cor 10:3-5)
Willful sin and disobedience will open the door to demonization.
The Ten Commandments were given for our good, and if everyone kept them through the power of the Holy spirit we would have very few believers to be healed and delivered.
Asking for the name of the demon is a dubious and questionable practice in deliverance.
I rather look to the Lord for information through the Holy Spirit of ask the person for the reason and time of the trauma or the conclusion she reached after a long time of discouragement and torment.
There may be other entry points, but I have found these to be the most common. Some are beyond the control of an individual, because our enemy, Satan, has come to steal, kill and destroy, (John 10:10). Our job as believers, is to get rid of any of our own problems and to keep our children from ever having to deal with demons either.
Healing and Deliverance
Freedom to the soul comes by asking the Holy Spirit to show you the root system of your trauma(s) and troubles. Do what Jesus did:
- Forgive your abusers for every form of physical, mental and emotional abuse.
- Identify with Christ on the cross (Luke 9:23-26) knowing that He is your High Priest (Heb. 4:15).
- Come to a place of ceasing to fight and struggle with your hurts and humiliations by seeing Christ on the cross suffering for you.
- Then, by faith in His provision appropriate your healing and deliverance by exchanging your pain and poverty for His riches of wholeness. (2 Cor. 8:9; 9:8).
- Repent of any personal contribution, give thanks and break every curse and demonic power associated with your traumas.
- Now confess the Word of God and declare that you are a NEW CREATION IN CHRIST, 2 Cor 5:17. You’re now living in the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, Rom.8:2.
