13. Are there always physical manifestations when demons come out of a demon possessed person?




Many times there are physical manifestations. In the Bible this is confirmed by the following passage concerning the deliverance of a boy from a mute spirit: “Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead …” (Mark 9:26 – NKJV).

However, this is not always the case, for sometimes when demon possessed persons are delivered there is no physical manifestation. We have an example in the deliverance of that damsel possessed with a spirit of divination which took place in Philippi. Luke says: “And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour” (Acts 16:16-18).
