Hello readers, let's carefully consider this debatable topic, I called it debatable because I know that so many people will have different opinions on it but the Christian life is not based on opinions but on the Bible and the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
It will be a misconception to ask if a believer can be possessed, this is because there are so many believers but not all believers are Christians but they believe in other things or other gods. So my question is; Can a Christian be possessed? This was actually an assignment I was given in Bible School and after carefully considering the Scriptures, I was able to answer this question and that's what am about to share with us. A Christian is not just any believer but someone that believes in Christ Jesus and is born again.                                                                                        To be possessed is to be controlled by evil spirits.
Let's start with Colossians 3:3 "For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God". Who is dead?  A Christian. Who's life is hid with Christ in God?  A Christian. 
Anybody that is in Christ is dead and his/her life is hid with Christ and Christ in God. How can such a person be possessed? Can a dead person be possessed? Evil spirits don't possess dead people because their body is dead and evil spirits always look out for bodies that are alive to possess, evil spirits can only take the image of dead people but can't possess the body. (2 Corinthians 11:14 "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light"). Once you get born again, you have been dead to sin and to the power of darkness. I hope you get these? Satan can transform himself into an image of light but he can't possess the light. You must be rooted in the Word to really understand the above explanation. But the message is clear enough.
