Deliverance refers to freeing people from the influence of evil spirits. Casting out demons in order to free someone from torment, oppression, affliction, harassment, and demonic bondage.
Many of us have been troubled by many things we don’t know the source of.
There are spirits responsible for certain things that happen in our live and surrounding.
Take for example this lady who felt severe pain in her knees. She went to the hospital and the doctors diagnosed her condition as arthritis.
After speaking with her over the phone the Lord led me to ask her to forgive and let go of bitterness. She writes: “I surrendered my situation to the Lord and forgave all the people who had wronged me. Today I can testify. I feeling much better physically and mentally. The pain is gone, I’m now able to walk without struggling. I thank you for getting on to me about doing the right thing. I’m ready to share my testimony.”
The next time I saw her she was in her boots with heels! She forgave and she felt improvement physically and mentally.
Some conditions that are diagnosed medically have demonic elements to them. In these cases, while medicine deals with the symptoms, deliverance addresses the root cause of the problem. Unseen evil entities enter humans to influence, enslave, bind, torment, afflict people with diseases! (“Then Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples...” NLT Luke 22:3)
Jesus dealt with every problem from the root. ("And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. Mark 11:20")
I prophesy that today your problem will be destroyed from its roots in Jesus name!
Deliverance is the message Jesus brought.
When we start ministering deliverance people question, “ should Christians go through deliverance? Can a Christian who has accepted Christ Jesus be demon possessed?
Mark 1:39 "And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils."
The ministry of Jesus was a deliverance ministry
Everywhere Jesus went, He preached and cast out demons spirits from those who were victims to satans bondage. Casting out demons was as Normal to Jesus as preaching
The word of God is not for story telling. It’s to be acted upon. The word works itself out as men apply their faith to it.
The commission to the disciples was not only to preach the gospel but also it was to cast out demons.
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen."
A sign is something that points people to somewhere
A sign is a wonder
Signs are so that people will know that God is with you
Jesus wants to confirm His word with signs
But what is preached today in many church circles has nothing in it for the Lord to confirm. The Holy Ghost will confirm the Word of God and not motivation.
Deliverance is not motivation and encouragement. It deals with invoking and releasing God’s power - the anointing to set captives free.
Jesus said anytime you see evil spirits influencing people, affecting their lives and results, “Cast them out.”
Holy Ghost power, fall on me now. Deliver me and set me free from every satanic bandage in the mighty name of Jesus.
Every power of darkness afflicting my life and blocking my results, die by fire now in the mighty name of Jesus.
I declare my freedom today from the spirits of fear, unforgiveness, addiction and every evil behavior in the mighty name of Jesus.
