When you are dealing with demonic activity in your home or family you have to make an assessment of how demonic activity entered your home or attached itself to your loved one. The fact is that demons have to have a legal right or doorway access to attach themselves to a person.

Only a person who is unsaved can be totally possessed but as christians we can have spirits, such as the spirit of fear or accusation that can attach itself to us and needs to be cast out. It is important to know the doorway so that when the person is delivered the doorway is closed and remains closed.  Here are some things that the enemy will use to enter. Of course, there are others.

  1. Direct willful sin.   (hatred,  abortion, adultery, sexual sin, etc,)
  2. The Occult which is defined as supernatural, mystical, or magical beliefs, practices, or phenomena.  Partial list of the occult below.
  3. Generational curses (heavy drug abuse, alcoholism, suicide, major depression, any kind of heavy involvement with the occult, or any kind of sexual and/or physical abuse) by relatives in your bloodline. 
  4. Unforgiveness/Bitterness
  5. Trauma                                                                         
  6. Abuse
  7. Ungodly soul ties -Ungodly Soul Ties knit together spiritual/emotion connection to someone after fornication.  Soul ties are invisible bands or yokes from your flesh from your soul to another person’s heart – you become one flesh in the spiritual realm. Any demons connected to them transfer to you.
  8. Direct Curses - This is when someone heavily involved with the occult will try and curse someone directly.
  9. Self Cursing - this can be when someone is constantly telling themselves bad things about      themselves
  10. Addictions
  11. Fears and Phobias
  12. False Religions
  13. Cursed Objects - Another area where people can into trouble is when they go overseas and bring back objects from other pagan nations. Bringing back any kind of a statue, painting, drawing, or jewelry of a foreign god from a pagan nation can also become a major entry point for demons to be able to enter into your house.
