“Tormenting Voices in My Head!” – Mental Illness or Demons?



The Apostle Paul said that we live in physical bodies, and we are involved in a war. But the war is not in the physical sphere. Since the war is not in the physical sphere it must be in the spiritual.

“4ย (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)5ย Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” 2 Cor. 10:4-5

Here we find the Greek words “logismos” and “gnosis” and “noรฉma”… which can be translated “reasoning,” “thinking,” “knowledge,” “heart,””thought,” “mind” etc. They all belong to one realm: the mind.


Indeed, the battlefield is in the mind. That is where the enemy attacks the most. Any Christian can attest they have had moments of being bombarded with nasty thoughts that seemed to have come from nowhere.

If thoughts such as “it’s okay to sin just this time, it’s not going to hurt anyone” and you yield to such suggestions then you have allowed the enemy to gain more of an entry into your thought life or life in general.

It’s been years since this happened to me but I remember on several occasions before I would about to go to sleep I would sense a spirit approach me and hover over my body and it would project pornographic thoughts into mind. I would reject it and then it would fly off. I thought this was really bizarre and unique to me, so I didn’t tell anyone about it, but I later found out later another Christian friend of mine had a similar experience.

The point is the enemy can and does project sinful, evil ideas, or thoughts into people’s hearts and minds. Most people have no idea it is the enemy whispering in their ears so to speak, the enemy can be subtle. Did Judas know that it was satan who put the idea into his heart to betray Jesus (Luke 22:3)? I doubt it.

There are instances where demons will project a blasphemous thought into a person’s head and have the person think it was their own thoughts making the person be guilt-ridden.

There are also cases where a person will hear voices that can come from an internal source that is not the person’s own inner voice. In the last several years or so there have been many news reports of people who have committed horrific crimes because the perpetrator said demons told them to do it. They knew it was demons. Here the demons were not so subtle. To the person, the voices are blatant and explicit. They can say vulgar, nasty things to the person. The voices can be tormenting. Sometimes the person will hear words accusing him, putting him down, saying he is not saved and is going to hell, or blaspheming God. I would say in such cases that person is almost 100% guaranteed to have demons indwelt in him or her and that person needs deliverance! Hearing voices of an evil nature internally is a telltale sign of demonization.

A lot of times the person opened himself to such heavy demonization by engaging in the occult, witchcraft, New Age, or drugs. Even getting certain tattoos can open oneself to demonization. Sin can open oneself to demonization!

Medication or physicians won’t be able to do much help for people with such a case because it is fundamentally a spiritual issue. Turn to the Lord and God Jesus Christ who is the Healer (Luke 7:1-17) and Deliverer (Ps. 18:2).

If you are suffering from such a condition then feel free to reach out to me for prayer.


If you donโ€™t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.

If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesnโ€™t have to be word for word):

โ€œGod, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesusโ€™ precious and holy name. Amen.โ€

    1. I would like to know the same thing. I’ve had that out of nowhere and I kept rebuking them in Jesus name and call for the blood of Jesus. I cried out for the lord about my mind. Now I’m getting attacks at night.


    1. I am a believer of Jesus Christ and I have been trying to do the right things in life by praying, & sometimes at night I have these very evil dreams or something holding me down & I would always “I rebuke you in the name of Jesus” over & over & my brother has dabbled in witchcraft and I believe he’s still doing it & my daughter’s father’s mother is also heavy into witchcraft & I am against it but I’ve had unclean thoughts in my mind & like a voice & I cry because it’s not my character I’ve been praying asking God to please forgive me & to break the chains of generational curses. I need prayers for myself to keep my sanity & my mother is very negative & she’s always angry & lives with me & has a very negative spirit & my daughter gets scared of her at times. Please pray for me๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™


  1. I was baptized dec. 4, 2004 but in months prior after going out star gazing I seemed to start hearing voices and seeing black dressed creatures. I have heard disgusting things at times and I knew who’s side they were on because Christ doesn’t tempt you. I thought after putting on Christ that they would go away and leave me alone. Over the 16 years, they have gotren worse. They now follow me everywhere telling me to leave and constantly mock Jesus Christ and everything I stand by abd believe. I stand by God’s Holy Word. Now they show up at the house of God, follow me everywhere I go, follow me to my volunteer work, ridicule me with hate declaring constant untruths. My fellow Christian brothers and sisters of Christ say things of the world only to not remember saying what they said. The demons tell me constantly that I chose them and that I hear voices. I never have got a minutes rest or peace. My mother and I pray every night for God to answer our prayers. The demons are becoming a heavy burden to bear every day, every night, always saying the same things. Today at our house we moved from, I saw 40 or 50 demons filing out of our house. Our front yard was full as well as the street. That was my grandpa’s and grandma’s house. I never invited them in. I see one sitting on my bed every night. It’s favorite saying are: “landsakes”,”You chose me”, “I can’t believe she loves me”, “she hears voices”, “you may not love me now, but you will someday”, “have you told her”, “You know who I Am”, “I thought I told you to leave”, “Please leave”, ” I told you to leave her alone”, “I can’t believe she did that for me” among other sayings. It has now started passing itself off as Christ Jesus, but for years it has also tried angels. My mother and I call it pete and repeat because up until before I got baptized, I never saw or heard anything. I have the mind of Christ and we don’t understand It’s Idiotic, santanistic phrases. We just know it is not Christ .


  2. Hello everyone

    I really need help, im going crazy! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ i hear a voice or voices in my head blaspheming again God and the holy spirit and then convinve me I’m the one who said it and tell me I’m not gonna be forgiven by God and that I’m going to hell. I can never say anything negative against God and His holy spirit, I love them and honor them so much. But these voices convince me that I’m the one who said it, I hear it in my mind all day and night and sometimes they convince me to commit suicide and just die because there is no use in living anymore because I am already going to hell for swearing God. I would never do such a thing, I love God and dont want to go to hell for something I didn’t think, say or do. Please help me I’m losing my mind๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”


  3. I thought I was all alone I thought I was the only one with this problem but I see that there are more brothers and sisters that struggle with the same thing day by day like me also.

  4. Being attacked/oppressed and even possessed by demons is not very nice at all. Many Christians endure and have suffered it, so it’s nothing to absolutely fear or completely despair over.

    However, it’s not a good situation to be in. DO NOT TALK TO THEM OR ENGAGE WITH THEM. The Lord Jesus Christ CAN and WILL heal you and exorcise you of these vile things if you ask Him and are sincere. He is Lord of all Creation and all created things.

    It helps to have a Bible. It helps to be in regular daily prayer with the Lord, it helps to have people you know and absolutely trust to pray for you, and it helps absolutely to follow the Lord’s guidance on this situation.

    If you trust Him, He WILL deliver you from evil. But you must trust Him, follow Him and obey Him.

    Living in sin? Stop!!! Messing with the occult? Stop! Get rid of any all occultic books, things, ouija boards etc etc etc. All of it!!! Addicted to something? Get help and stop! All these things and many more can open the door to demonic oppression.

    Oh, and don’t worry. You won’t be the first and you won’t be the last to suffer this. But you must ask the Lord into your situation. YOU MUST!
