There is a variety of evidence of demonic boundaries which most of us in the current generation have experienced. Unless we engage a serious spiritual battle against these demonic boundaries, we will leave under afflictions and frustrations and therefore we need to put God first. The Bible says that the devil seeks to devour believers (1 Peter 5:8) and Satan and his demons “scheme” against Christians (Ephesians 6:11). As Satan attempted with Jesus (Luke 4:2), demonic forces tempt us to sin and oppose our efforts to obey God. Should a Christian allow the demons to succeed in these attacks, oppression results. Oppression is an evidence of demonic boundaries. Demonic oppression is when a demon is temporarily victorious over a Christian, successfully tempting a Christian to sin and hindering his ability to serve God with a strong testimony. If a Christian continues to allow demonic oppression in his/her life, the oppression can increase to the point that the demon has a very strong influence over the Christian’s thoughts, behavior, and spirituality. Christians who allow continuing sin open themselves up for greater and greater oppression. Some of the demonic boundaries one can be able to see and the others cannot see. For instance, if a person is hearing voices, physically seeing demons, feeling them especially at night, sensing a demonic presence following them around, recurring nightmares, then it is an evidence of demonic boundaries. Voices in the mind, compulsive thinking, obsessive worry, fear, depression (heaviness), etc. is also evidence of demonic boundaries. There are also many diseases and sicknesses that are caused by unclean spirits. There were cases in the Bible where people were deaf, unable to speak, or even crippled by unclean spirits.( Luke 13:11), "And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself." When someone is possessed by demonic boundaries there is always invisible barriers, you want to achieve a certain goal but you cannot make it, reason being, devil has already taken control over your life. It is also an evidence of demonic boundaries that there is neither growth nor positive change. One will try all the possible criteria’s and he/she achieves nothing at the end hence leading to frustrations. One lives a life full of struggle and yet you are not in a position to overcome the challenges of life, but the lord assures us that He will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you (Deuteronomy 28:7).
