What You Should Know About Demonic Deliverance and Healing
2 Tim. 2:24-26
And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; and that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
Luke 8:2 And also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities; Mary Magdalene out of whom came seven devils
1 Peter 2:24 He bore our sins in His body on the tree so that we who are dead to sin and alive to righteousness by whose stripes you were healed
What are demons or devils:
Demons are evil spirits in the kingdom of Satan that entered into mankind at the fall of Adam. They are on the earth and are responsible for the direct attacks on mankind and in direct opposition to God and His Ways.. Other names for demons include evil spirits, devils, and unclean spirits. All demons are evil and create physical problems and sickness in the body and abnormal emotional states such as anxiety, fear, and depression. They must gain entrance into a body in order to perform their particular destructive deeds. The King James Bible erroneously calls this “demon possession”.
What is demon possession:
The term “demon possession” is an inaccurate translation. A demon or group of demons cannot take full control of a person. They can only control specific areas that fall under their assignment from Satan, such as anxiety, depression, or cancer etc. and are given access through our generations (families) and ways we have given them access through ignorance and believing their lies.. A more correct term would be “to be demonized”. However, the more demons that are in a person, the less control that person will have over the mind, will, emotions, and body. Demons attempt to influence people’s thoughts while outside the body. When the person begins to accept these influencing thoughts as truth, the demons enter into the person and begin to control that area of life.
Can a Christian have indwelling demons?
Many Bible teachers think that Christians cannot have demons or evil spirits living inside of them. They acknowledge that demons can oppress Christians but not possess them. However, as we have explained, possession is an incorrect term. Most deliverance ministers, through experience, know that demons can indwell Christians. Both sides attempt to prove their view with scripture. The proof lies in the fact that following deliverance, Christian’s lives are positively changed and detrimental actions and emotions can be controlled.
What is demonic deliverance:
Demonic deliverance occurs when demons, who are indwelling a person, are compelled to come out. This happens when a believer commands them to leave using the name of Jesus. The result of this deliverance is that people are set free from demonic control and are able to become all that God wants them to be in this world.
How can you know if you have demons:
The fact is that all people have areas in their lives that they have surrendered to demons and are in need of deliverance. Doctrines of devils have infiltrated our minds in thoughts, will, and emotions and in our bodies with sickness and diseases. Demonic deliverance is God’s way of healing people in spirit, soul, and body. In our experience, anything that you cannot control, is probably a demon. The following is only a partial list of areas that indicate the need for deliverance:
Should you be afraid of demonic deliverance: Often, people ask us if they should be afraid of Demonic deliverance , The answer is No, when done properly, through the power of the Holy Spirit, there should be no fear. We bind demons from transferring to other people or animals before beginning deliverance. We also bind them from causing bodily harm or property destruction before casting them out of people. Demons are subject to the followers of Jesus through His name (Luke 10:17) and He has given us power and authority over all devils (Luke 9:1). We show no mercy to devils and give no place to fear. Movies like the “exorcist” have put fear in people and are just tactics of Satan’s kingdom to deter people from receiving their freedom.
I am Born again devils can’t live in me:
Experience has shown us, that Christians have demons that did not leave when the individual was born again. These demons must be cast out in order to free each believer to effectively conform to the image of Jesus. There are many demons in each person and individual deliverance sessions are one of the ways to permanently and fully set people free from Satan’s control. By taking a thorough history to identify the demons that are present, the specific problems for that person can be addressed. We call demons by their name or by their function and command them in the name of Jesus to come out. Freeing people from demons is only the first step in spiritual warfare. After deliverance, we provide instruction in how to resist the return of the demons. This involves training for a new lifestyle through daily prayer and learning Gods Word and His ways.
Individual deliverance sessions are held in a private setting and must be scheduled in advance. All information is confidential and there is no fee for these services. Whenever possible, deliverance sessions are done in person. However, if this is not possible, deliverance can be done over the telephone or on Skype. Individuals must be committed to further sessions as needed. Biblical teachings and prayer material will be given to those who undergo deliverance.
