I. EXORDIUM:

Do you agree with unbelievers?

No. I cannot be yoked together with unbelievers.

2 Corinthians 6:14-16 (Amplified Bible)

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismated alliances with them or come under a different yoke with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership have right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness?

What harmony can there be between Christ and Belial [the devil]? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?

What agreement [can there be between] a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in and with and among them and will walk in and with and among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

"And when it arrives, it finds [the place]"

Only unbelievers can be possessed because believers can't be possessed because JESUS dwells permanently within us.

Colossians 1:27 (Amplified Bible)

To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of [realizing the] glory.

1 John 4:4 (Amplified Bible)

Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.

1 John 5:4 (Amplified Bible)

For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith.

Since all are GOD's creation, all bodies are alike in it's form, in GOD's image but that body needs to accept the LORD JESUS as LORD and SAVIOR that's why He needed to invite the LORD JESUS to be LORD of his life and be the SAVIOR of his soul. Unbelievers doesn't have all these priveleges, that's why there's no one living in his body.

The LORD JESUS CHRIST makes our mind like His mind that's why the enemy can't dwell in it and can't make the mind his battle place.

1 Corinthians 2:16 (Amplified Bible)

For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.

The HOLY SPIRIT makes the body of the believer His dwelling place and the body became a sacred tool, a temple of the HOLY SPIRIT.

1 Corinthians 3:16 (Amplified Bible)

Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church at Corinth] are God’s temple (His sanctuary), and that God’s Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you [to be at home in you, collectively as a church and also individually]?

1 Corinthians 6:19 (Amplified Bible)

Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,

Before conversion, before acceptance of the LORD JESUS CHRIST our bodies are instruments and slaves of sin and not of righteousness.
