Demons also called evil spirits, unclean spirits and devils can be defeated. Accept God as a superior force. Be strong. Be Sober. Be Vigilant. Submit yourself to God and resist the devil and he will flee from you. Prepare yourself for battle by putting on the full armor of God to protect yourself. Memorize scriptures because this is your sword against evil forces.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7
Be strong in the Lord and believe in His power.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Eph. 6:10
To keep evil unclean spirits or demons out of your live you need to put on the whole armor of God.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Eph. 6:11
See How to put on the whole armor of God If you feel that demons or unclean evil spirits are moving in your life know that you are not alone. There is a spiritual battle for your very soul going on but by getting saved and putting on the whole armor of God you are doing everything in your power to stand up against evil. The armor of God is truthfulness, righteousness, preparation of the gospel of peace, and your shield is your faith in the Lord which can protect you from anything the devil throws your way. You must be saved in order to protect yourself from evil spirits because your salvation is your helmet. Prayer is a way to protect yourself also. Pray daily and pray often asking the Lord for protection.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. Eph. 6:12
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Eph. 6:13
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; Eph. 6:14
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Eph. 6:15
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Eph. 6:16
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Eph. 6:17
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Eph. 6:18
Read in Context Unclean spirits will try to return after being cast out and if allowed to return will bring seven more worse evil spirits When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Matt. 12: 43 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth [it] empty, swept, and garnished. Matt. 12:44 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last [state] of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. Matt. 12:45 Read in Context The Devil is always looking for ways to destroy people. You must always be on guard against him. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: I Peter 5:8 If you are not saved you won't have protection against demons. One example given in the Bible is in Acts chapter 19 where vagabond Jews (seven sons of Sceva, and Jew) and the chief of priests tried to exorcise evil spirits using the name of the Lord Jesus but it did not work because the men were not saved. The evil spirits knew they were not saved and stood against them with no protection so the evil spirits attacked them and the men left that house wounded and naked.
Acts 19:13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the LORD Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.
Acts 19:14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
Acts 19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
Acts 19:16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
Do not believe every spirit because not every spirit is of God-Test the spirits... Many people can feel the presence of spirits in their life. Some evil spirits pretend to be good spirits and may even seem helpful at times but before you accept guidance from any spirit you must test them.Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God. Spirits that do not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh are not of God but the are the spirit of the antichrist who is already in the world.
I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
I John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
I John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Don't be afraid As children of God we have already overcome evil spirits because Jesus Christ died on the cross and His blood covers our sins, when His fleshly body died that day His spirit lives inside those who believe in Him. The Holy Ghost that lives inside you is greater than the evil spirits in the world.
I John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
I John 4:5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
I John 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
I John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
I John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Demons have no defense against Jesus Christ whose spirit lives inside you if you are saved.
