"When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there. And the last state of that person is worse than the first.” Luke 11:24-26
There is something very important that takes place after experiencing deliverance from evil spirits.
After Jesus Christ has set us free from the power of demons and unclean spirits, the Bible lets us know that they will eventually return. They come back seeking if they gain entrance into our lives once again.
This is why whenever someone has been set free from something, especially something addictive; be it smoking, drinking, drugs, watching porn, masturbation, fornication, the occult, etc - the urge to engage in those things will suddenly come back in full force one day.
You might go months or even years without any such temptation: then out of the clear blue sky - BAM!
This is not uncommon nor unusual. Those powerful sudden urges are nothing but the same old demons seeking to gain reentry into your life once again. It's up to you whether they succeed or not.
The best thing to do when you are set free from an evil spirit is to immediately fill your life with something to replace what attached that devil to you in the first place. A void has been left; now its up to you to quickly fill it.
For example, let's say you once had a severe porn addiction. I'm talking about the kind where you absolutely couldn't control the urge and you constantly found yourself masturbating anytime and any place.
That is more than likely the result of an unclean spirit that has attached itself to you. You've opened the door to let it into you through watching porn.
(Which is why I warn about porn so much on this page. It's not just harmless entertainment. Most of those porn stars are practicing witches and satanists who whore out their bodies to be used on camera to trap ordinary folks to open themselves to demonic infestation. Read more about this in my ebooks Diva Goddess Queen and Hedonism.)
Let's say one day you finally get set free and delivered from that porn spirit. You experience freedom and your willpower returns enabling you to do without porn or the urge to masturbate. Your freedom lasts for six months straight without a single problem or a hiccup.
Then one day while online surfing the net you come across a very risque image: and immediately a powerful urge to view porn and to masturbate hits you so hard, it makes your head spin.
Do not fret: that's not YOU! It's more than likely that old familiar demonic spirit seeking to gain entry back into your mind once more. Jesus said these spirits go around looking for rest once they've been kicked out of a person.
And when they can't find rest - meaning a new victim - they'll return to their old victim, someone they're already familiar with.
Whether or not that spirit can successfully take up residence again depends on one factor: whether or not the person has filled the space in their life that was left empty by the eviction of the unclean spirit.
If the person doesn't fill that void with something positive, not only will the same unclean spirit possibly return; this time it'll gather seven other spirits worse than it is, and they'll all end up crowding inside of the person, thus making it seven times harder to get the person delivered and set free again. There's always strength in numbers.
Moral of the story: when God sets you free, STAY FREE! Don't be like the dog who goes back and devours what it just threw up!
"Like a dog that returns to his vomit is a fool who repeats his folly." Proverbs 26:11
"Stand fast therefore in the liberty with which Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Galatians 5:1
