q.gif (1639 bytes)   Can a unbeliever resist Satan and his demons, according to the Bible?


a.gif (1659 bytes)   Unsaved people are taken captive by Satan at his will.  2 Timothy 2:25-26 says, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;   And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”


Notice also Matthew 12:43-45, “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.   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.   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.”


There is one exception, when a lost person wants to come to the Lord Jesus Christ, the devil cannot stop that one.  Mark 5:1-6 says, “And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.   And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,   Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:   Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.   And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.   But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him.”  When a demon-possessed man wants to come to Jesus and be saved, the devil cannot stop him.
