Subject: demon possession.

From the New Testament we see that under the hand of Satan the are two living spiritual beings:(1) fallen angels, (2)demons. The fallen angels are not disembodied demons;they have ethereal bodies. This is why the Lord Jesus Christ promises that the children of resurrection will be like the angels in the haven.
Demons and Evil spirits or filthy spirits are the same. These demons, or the spirits, probably were the race who lived in the former world. They helped Satan in his sinning;or,perhaps after Satan sinned, they followed him rather than forsaking him and obeying God. Therefore, they were cut off by God and they bodies were remowed from them.
Hence, they became disembodied spirits.Besides the human body,demons can not find resting place. Presently in the world they still cling to human bodies. Even some believers in the Lord are unconsciously possessed by them. They are different from Satan and his angels who do not like to enter human bodies. Satan and his angels still have a spiritual body, but the demons do not.
In the future Satan will be detained in a botomless pit in the heart of the earth. The demons are also detained in the abyss now, yet some of them still have freedom.We must wait until God's appointed time comes for them to be completely shut inside. This abbys is probably different from the one in the heart of the earth;it is in the sea.However, there may be only one abbys that is divided into two parts.
Wherever anyone offers opportunity to wicked spirits, he cannot folow his own will any more but must be obedient to another's. When he gives ground to them in his mind he immediately forfeits his soverignty over it. All sins furnish territory to demons.
Also, a blank brain that produses a passive will, these two elements are the basic requsites for demon possession.
