Exorcism and the Bible

Here’s what the Bible says about exorcism and demonic possession.

Q: What is exorcism?

A: The act of expelling a demon or evil spirit out of a person or place. 

Q: What is demonic possession?

A: Demons are fallen angels that sided with Lucifer aka Satan in his rebellion against the Kingdom of God. They serve the prince of the power of the air, also Satan, and can inhabit someone’s body and mind, affecting their will and behavior. 

Q: Who practiced exorcism in the Bible?

A: Exorcism was practiced by apostles in the Gospels and the Book of Acts. See Jesus Christ’s instructions (Matt. 10), the use of His name to cast devils out (Mark 9:38), reference to the children of the Pharisees (Luke 11:18-19), Paul’s works (Acts 16), and attempts by itinerant Jewish exorcists (Acts 19:11-16).

Q: What causes demonic possession?

A: The Bible tells us that Satan himself entered Judas Iscariot, the disciple that betrayed Jesus and was ruled by greed (John 12:6). In his case, we know that the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Tim. 6:10). If one allows his heart to be ruled by habitual sin, it becomes an invitation for a demon. Demon possession is also related to the worship of idols and use of occult materials and tools (Deut. 32:17, 1 Cor. 10:20). 

Q: Can someone be possessed by more than one demon?

A: Luke 8:30 describes a man who was possessed by many demons. He used the term “legion” which equals a unit of 6,000 soldiers.

Q: How does demonic possession affect a person’s life/lifestyle?

A: (1) Supernatural talents/strength: In Acts 16:16, a woman was given the power to foretell the future. In Mark 5:4, an evil spirit caused its victim to have superhuman strength. Nothing could hold him.

(2) Illness/evil acts: Luke 9:39 describes a case of epilepsy caused by a demon. Luke 11:14 documents a person whose vocal chords were affected by a demon. Luke 13:10-13 describes a woman who couldn’t straighten her back for almost 20 years because of an evil spirit. King Saul was also troubled by an evil spirit (1 Sam. 16:14-15, 18:10-11, 19:9-10). The apparent effect was a depressed mood and an increased desire to kill David, his successor.

Q: How are/were exorcisms performed?

A: (1) By command in the name of Jesus Christ: With one exception, Jesus or His apostles ordered the evil spirit to leave, and the demon complied. In the early church, exorcisms were done in His name. In one instance, Paul commanded the “spirit of divination” to come out a possessed slave girl, in the name of Jesus (Acts 16:16).

(2) By fasting: The disciples were unable to expel an evil spirit that was causing a little boy to be both mute and epileptic. Jesus cured the child and explained that the only way to rid a person of this type of demon was through prayer and fasting.

(3) By faith: Acts 19:13 described how some itinerant Jewish exorcists attempted to expel a demon saying “In the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches I command you to come out.” They were unsuccessful. In Mark 9:18, Jesus explained that all things are possible, including an exorcism, to those who believe.

Q: Once demons are cast out can they return?

A: Matthew 12:43 describes a demon who left a man and then returned later with seven other evil spirits. However, there are no cases of exorcisms performed by Jesus and his followers producing temporary results.

Q: How do I ward off demonic possession?

A: “Your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). We are told to put on the armor to withstand Satan and his minions (that includes the Word of God according to Ephesians 6:10-18), resist him so he will flee (James 4:7), be wary of him (1 Peter 5:8), not give him any place in our lives (Ephesians 4:27) and seek salvation. We do this by acknowledging and repenting of our sins, being baptized in Jesus’ name and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38-39).

Q: Who can perform exorcisms?

A: Jesus tells His disciples in Luke 10:19 that he has given them the “authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy.” Mark 16:16-18 explains that “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils” (KJV). This is why being filled with the Holy Spirit is so key.2
