I think part of the issue may be the differing meanings of the word "possess". We typically use the word today to mean "to own" or "to have"; but this is not the original meaning. Etymonline.com records the original meaning of the word (when it entered English at the end of the 1300s) as being "'to hold, occupy, reside in' (without regard to ownership)". ...

"'Every kingdom divided against itself goes to ruin, and a divided household falls. Equally if Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand?--since as you would have it, I drive out the devils by Beelzebub.

Origin of the idea that “demons” and “fallen angels” are the same thing? There is a description of angels that went bad. Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. While Revelation is often called allegorical or ...

First, we need to know that Revelation is a prophesy about the future. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, (Revelation 1:1, NKJV) After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And ...

Demons smelling bad makes no sense for various reasons: From the accounts of demons possessing people, we should infer they are spirits.

I’ll try to answer the question from a Catholic perspective and, additionally, provide some supplementary information about what has been mentioned in the comments. The general answer to the question is “no”. First, God is Almighty, both before and after His revelation to us. So you can’t exercise power over Him. We can do wonders in Jesus’ name, but only ...
