Demons work in stages. I) Depress the mind, 2) Oppress the body, 3) Possess the spirit of mankind. Demons can and will possess the body through diseases and infirmaties but not all sickness means that person is possessed. Jesus gave born again Believers the power and authority in His name and anyone using the name without under the Lordship and kingship of Christ, can be attacked by the demons they are trying to cast out..Believers are given weapons against demons and with each passing day those who are not "In Christ" are becoming more and more given over to demon powers, deceptions and possessions and if unwilling to be delivered from them, These demons and the unholy spirit of Antichrist shall lead them all into divine Judgment of God.. This is why Jesus gave His power and anointing to the believers in Christ..People need the Lord...
