Practical Suggestions for Deliverance Ministry

Be Prepared

To be in this ministry you need to be a person of prayer. At the very least, you need to have a strong anointing from God, which you could only have received through previous faithfulness to God in prayer. However, in this ministry, more than others, we are dependent on God the Holy Spirit. Even Jesus did not drive out demons except by the Spirit of God. So keep close to God through prayer. Remember the seven sons of Sceva who were humiliated by the demons because they did not know Christ for themselves. Acts 19:13-16.

Work in A Team if at all possible

Jesus sent his disciples out two by two to heal the sick and cast out demons. It is better to work with others. In any case, never get into a counselling or deliverance situation alone with a person of the opposite sex. Satan does send people to come for counselling who later accuse ministers of sexual misconduct and other false things. If you were alone with that person and they accuse you, it is your word versus theirs. You can lose your reputation and ministry like this through false accusations.

Make sure your team relationships are in good order. Be watchful, practice humility and forgiveness so that Satan cannot gain an advantage over you. Where there is unity between brethren, Christ is present and commands His blessing.

Bind The Devil

You have effective authority over evil spirits to the extent that you submit to God and resist the devil. To use the name of Jesus Christ you must live under the authority of Jesus Christ. As the spirit leads, you should bind the devil according to Matthew 18:18 with words such as these:

"In the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, we renounce all the power of darkness which may exist in this area or in the life of [Counsellee's name] for any reason. We bind all evil spirits assigned to [Counsellee's name] and forbid you to operate in any way, in the name of Jesus Christ."

Determine if the counsellee (person needing deliverance) is a born-again Christian.

If they are not, its much better to spend time explaining the gospel to them, and leading them to a point of trust and faith in Christ. Without this basis, they cannot be properly set free from demonic influence.

Some people are too bound to respond directly to the gospel. There are too approaches you can take here.

(a) While others pray and bind the demons, patiently explain that Jesus can set them free, that Jesus can save, that Jesus paid for their sins at the cross and that Jesus rose again and is alive. Make it very simple, since demons will attempt to work overtime to confuse their minds with distractions and irrelevant considerations. Invite them to call upon Jesus for salvation first.

(b) If the anointing for faith and power is upon you, ask for permission to lay hands on them [on the head and the back are good places for this], and, then, in the name of Jesus, do so, releasing by faith the anointing and commanding the demons to get off their mind and out of their lives. This will work for long enough to get them to a point of being able to hear and understand the gospel message. You must lead them to Christ at this point before continuing ministry.

For Deliverance Ministry Aiming for Thorough Cleansing

If possible, create an atmosphere of PRAISE where Jesus Christ is honored.

God dwells in the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). So acknowledge God's greatness by beginning times of deliverance ministry with songs of praise to God. This builds faith, invites the Holy Spirit to come with his anointing, and weakens the power of Satan in the area. Demons feel uncomfortable with praise directed towards God and will be more willing to leave when they feel bad in a place. Praise silences the voice of the enemy.

"Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants you have ordained strength, because of your enemies, that you may silence the enemy and the avenger." (Psalm 8:2). In Matthew 21:16 Jesus quoted this Scripture as follows, "Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants you have perfected praise". Together, these verses reveal the secret that PRAISE silences the voice of the enemy (demons). We are exhorted to "continually offer to God the sacrifice of praise" (Hebrews 13:15). The more we do this, the less problems we will have with demonic harrassment. Teach people to praise God. A lot of their problems will be solved if they learn to praise God through the difficulties until God's light starts to shine through. People can only keep deliverance by continuing to praise God.

Just before the time for the person to confess their sins and call upon the Lord, it is good to really get into praising God. Music helps here.

Be Thorough

Identify what areas of demonic influence are in a persons life (a) by listening to them (b) by asking questions (c) by listening to God and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Some things are obvious, others require revelations from God.

Do not depend on the demons themselves for information. Although Jesus once asked the demon what its name was, you generally don't need to. In any case, Jesus did not ask each of the thousands of demons in that man what its name was.

In commanding demons to go out, you don't need to know their name. They can be identified by what they promote. Thus demons of fear, lust, deception, pride, anger, violence and so on can be commanded to leave using just those names. For example, you can say, "You spirit of fear, come out in Jesus' name!" or "I command you spirit of infirmity to loose her in Jesus' name!"

It is outside the scope of this article to give a complete list of the demonic problems that may afflict people. You need to keep learning and studying. Read books by authors like Noel Gibson, Graham Powell, Bill Subritzky and others with plenty of practical experience of actually doing it. Learn from the Lord yourself through each experience.

Some Questions to Ask the Counsellee

Have you truly given your life to Jesus Christ? Would you like to?

What do you want freedom from?

When is the first time you had this trouble? (Be listening, and seek to discover through what action or event the demons got in in the first place. These doorways need to be closed through renunciation for deliverance to be lasting.)

What experience have you had of personal rejection by others?

Are there people you find it difficult to forgive? (People must forgive or God hands them over to demonic tormenters – see Matthew 18:34,35).

Are you aware of any occult history in your family or your ancestors – e.g. witchcraft, freemasonry, false religions etc? (All these must be renounced).

Procedure for Deliverance

Practical Instructions

Explain the Need for Laying on of hands

Some say that we shouldn't lay hands on those with demons, lest they come into us, but we need not fear if the power of the Holy Spirit is truly upon us. Jesus took Peter's mother-in-law's hand, rebuked the fever and it left. Demons hate the power of the Holy Spirit that comes through the laying on of hands and when hands are laid on in Jesus' name, demons are more likely to leave quickly. It is not an absolute requirement but it can be a point of contact for faith.

NEVER lay hands on a person inappropriately. Avoid touching areas which may open the door for lust. (It shouldn't be necessary to say this but it is better to be clear).

Explain how a person may co-operate in the process of expelling demons

Tell the person that they should co-operate with their deliverance after prayer by deliberately breathing out, and perhaps coughing. The word for spirit is the same as the word for breath or wind in Greek and Hebrew, and evil spirits can be breathed out by an act of the will and by faith, once the legal conditions are met – see lesson on deliverance which describes what these are.

Instruct them during the time of ministry not to pray audibly, to use the name of Jesus, or to pray in tongues. Instead, they should focus their minds on Jesus and breathe out in faith. Demons can't leave a person while that person is busy praying or has the name of Jesus on their lips. They have to know this in order to let the demons out.

Manifestations of demons may occur, but are not a condition of deliverance. These manifestations could include coughing, yawning, tears coming to the eyes, vomiting, spitting etc. A person should not let the demons talk through them. The only manifestations they should permit are those where the demon is leaving.

Experience has revealed that demons in the body many times are located around the stomach or chest and during deliverance move up into the throat from where they are expelled. They tend to produce knots of tension in the body in the places where they are. You can command the demons not to link and reinforce. Faith in the power and authority of the name of Jesus combined with the anointing will drive them out.

After these things are explained it is easier to do the ministry.

Prayer for Deliverance

Lead the counsellee in a prayer something like this:

"Jesus, I come to you as my deliverer. I believe that You are the Son of God, that You died for me and rose again. I confess You as Lord and renounce all influences of Satan in my life. Lord, you know the demons that oppress me, that harrass me, that entice me, that enslave me. I confess all my sins to you. (You must name them out loud before God). I repent of (turn away from) all my sins. I renounce any form of the occult or idolatry in my life or in the life of my ancestors (Name them to the extent of your knowledge of it). I forgive anyone who has ever hurt me in any way and I let go of any bitterness or resentment. (Name any such people whom you associate with personal pain and forgive them by name).

(Repeat for each significant stronghold). In the name of Jesus, I break and cancel the invitations to demons that have come through . The blood of Jesus now annuls any legal right held by the Kingdom of darkness in these areas.

In the name of Jesus these doorways are now closed.

I believe I am saved by the blood of Jesus and Satan has no further legal rights to my spirit, soul, mind or body. Through the blood of Jesus I am justified, just as if I never sinned. Through the blood of Jesus I am sanctified, set apart to God. Jesus Christ is my Lord. Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil.

Jesus you said whoever calls upon the name of the Lord SHALL be delivered. I call upon you. Deliver me!

Now in the name of Jesus Christ I bind every evil spirit in or around my life. In the name of Jesus I command you to get out and leave me alone. Go in Jesus' name!"

A shorter prayer taken from the writings of Noel Gibson:

"I confess Jesus Christ to be my personal Savior. I confess and renounce every iniquity, transgression and sin that I, my parents, or ancestors may have committed and which has brought bondages and dominations to my life, and ask for forgiveness and cleansing. I repent from any action, attitude or habit which does not glorify Jesus Christ. I renounce the devil, and all of his works, influences, bondages, dominations, inflictions and infirmities in my life. I claim the release and freedom promised by Jesus Christ, that He may be the Lord of my whole life. Amen."

Please note though, there is power in the specific renunciation of sin. The more specific and definite we are, the better the results. For this reason I would suggest leading the person to name the sins and bondages they want broken off their lives. Corresponding confession is appropriate.

It is important for people using the authority they have in Christ, to verbally CANCEL and BREAK all invitations to the devil/evil spirits they have created through sin or their ancestors have created throuh their sins.. Otherwise the demons may leave and then come back at an opportune time. Also, remember that deliverance is for people who want to live in fellowship with God. We need to daily seek that presence of the Holy Spirit and walk submissively to God, enquiring Him about things if we are to stay free.

Command the Demons to Leave

The actual words to use might be: "In the name of Jesus Christ, I command all evil spirits – get out now! Spirits of …, get out in Jesus' name! (repeat for each category if necessary)."

Follow the Holy Spirit

If things seem to block, ask the Holy Spirit what to do next. You may be led to ask the person what is going on in them. Many times the counsellee gets information during deliverance which when shared provides effective keys to their own deliverance. Remember that they are co-operating in their own deliverance and that the Holy Spirit is showing them things too many times. In effect, they are part of the deliverance team also.

After Deliverance

If you have peace from the Holy Spirit that no more deliverance should happen at that time, the person counsellee should be encouraged to invite the Holy Spirit into all the areas of their lives from which the demons have left. It may be appropriate to have another time of praise and thanksgiving to God.

Teach the counsellee the things contained in my lesson on deliverance concerning how to maintain deliverance. The most important thing is that they draw near to God through meditation on the Word, much prayer and through faithful obedience to the Lord. These things are very important, since demons always try to get back in later. People must be full of the Holy Spirit if they want to be sure of staying free.

Further Deliverance

Sometimes people are not ready to get all the demons out in one session. They need to learn to walk in the freedom they have received until that point, making adjustments in their life. If they are faithful the Lord will soon enable them to go further in the process of deliverance. They may be able to continue their own deliverance by the themselves following the principles in this lesson and the foundational teaching on deliverance.

In reality it is rare that all the demons come out in one session, although it is possible. However, the counsellee should be taught how to depend on Jesus and get himself or herself free as soon as possible, rather than creating a situation of perpetual dependence on the counsellor or deliverance minister.

Further Principles to be employed in this Ministry

Seek the root causes, not just symptons. By dealing with the most powerful demons at the root of the person's problems, many of the smaller demons will have nothing to cling onto and be forced to leave. However the reverse principle is not true.

Study and learn more. Any disobedience to the Word of God which becomes a habit can open the door for demons. Study and meditate on the Word. Build faith in this way and resist demons which seek to bind with unbelief, doubt and fear.

Learn to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit can give us thoughts and images just as demons can, so be open to these revelations from the Holy Spirit which can greatly assist in ministry.

Give the glory to God and keep Jesus central. Resist demonic suggestions that you are so great now that you are casting out demons. If they can trap you in pride you will be in for a fall. We must respect all the biblical conditions for our own freedom in Christ before we can effectively minister freedom to others. Remember that it is God's power not yours that drives the demons out. We didn't earn this power. Jesus paid for and supplied everything through the cross and by His grace. We are just privileged to be vessels and messengers for God. So we should never seek to take credit for the results.

"Freely you have received, freely give" ( Matthew 10:8). Do not stoop to demand monetary payment for delivering the gifts of God to people. Nowhere in the Bible did any servant of God accept money for healing or ministering freedom to a person. Those who do so are on dangerous ground indeed.

  2. Teresa Richardson says:

    Hello,
    My son became ill at 16teen, he was always a good child and I was not prepared for the paint and suffering. I suffer but my son suffers almost every waking day. They diagnoise him as being schizoprenic/ bi-polar. He has taken every drug there is but the voices never go away. He will be thirty in two months. I have taken for prayer and I have been waiting for a miracle. My son can not even call upon God to have mercy because is mind is so distorted. I beleive in my hear the meds have damaged him in so many ways. I belive some evil force has taken hold of my son and I’m terrified that he will never have a life. Since I have been home he has paced the floor for hours nonstop. He is in so much pain and he claims he doesn’t hear any voices but I know he does. It is not too late for him to have a life. I pray and hope and search for answers. Sometimes I wonder why he has not been healed – how can he fight for himself when he can’t even think enough to do much of anything for himself. We live in Los Angeles, Calif – if anyone knows of a minister that is blessed and that has the anointing to drive the voices from my son please reply. I have been let down by a few men of God, who are famous ministers buy only seek out donations.

    • Please know that as a mom my heart goes out to you. I do have some word of what I feel are discernment. First let me start by saying it is very hard to distinguish between the true time to give your finances/tithes to God and when you are being “tricked”. I do believe, need to tithe. It is easy to search biblical tithing principals through any serach engine. As far as knowing whoto trust, have always lined up under two Biblical principals. First you know them by the fruit they bear (Matthew 7:16 to 18)The fruit of the Spiritare: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance(Galatians 5:22-23). When I call out a spirit in the name of God, it is only through the Holy Spirit I can do this. Therfore any on exercising this gift of the manifistation of the Spirit through them will also bear the fruit of the Sirit. The second biblical principal I use to determine if I think a situation is of God is if I have peace about it. Sometime it is hard to tell, but if you listen with your heart instead of your head, you can tell.The reason for this is becuase Christ/God is the prince of Peace so all that is wellwith him or of him will bring you peace {Isa 9:6).

      Some people feel that all people who believve in the trinity and recieve the Holy Spirit, have the ability to call out spirits (Acts2 & Acts 10. If that is true you do not need to find someone to do it. You could just make sure your life is committed to God through the resurecton, study the bible and keep your son and you in prayer at all timesand strengthen your faith. It is not my faith in me that allows me to call out deamons, it is the Holy Spirit, I am only his vessel. Then as you feel the Holy Spirit well up with in you you could call out deamons in the name of Christ. You must be strong and face them directly. Command them in the name of Christ, Lord Jesus to be gone away from your son and your household. In the name of God they must flee.Remember greater is he who is with in you , if you are lined up right.
      I do have one word of warning. WHy do you feel your son is hearing voices? He told you he was not. Perhaps it is btter to pray for a gift of discernment and let the Holy Spirit reveal to you what you need to know to help your son, rather then assuming anything. I have lifted you inprayer. I hope you will work hard at studying the bible and finding many wonderful gifts in there that God has given you to line up under. One of my favorites is Mathew 11:29 “My yoke is light”. That means if you rest in him your load will be lightened. While exploring the bible read about the armor of God and make sure you work on it being a part of daily routine.

      Ephesians 6:10
      . 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place 15 And with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (NIV)

    • My heart goes out to the relatives of those with mental illnesses or addictions because so often we focus all of our compassion and programs on the ill or addicted persons without providing much support to alleviate the heartache being endured by the relatives. Even when loved-ones recover, the relatives can be left with an aching uncertainty that their loved-one might someday relapse. So it is with empathy I pray that the Lord gives you some word of wisdom or ministers to you in a special way, to lighten your load.

      I hope the following testimony encourages you. A Pastor’s daughter was mentally handicapped. But for many years, he kept speaking about his daughter only with positive, faith-filled words. Over a number of years, she slowly began showing signs of improvement. Eventually, she became just as cognitive as his other children, and if I’m not mistaken, she even graduated with a degree. I guess his attitude was like that of the Shulamite woman who by faith said, “It is well,” even though she needed a miracle to raise her son from the dead.

      In any case, may God help you to roll your burden onto the Lord – because the burden is His, not ours.

    • Dainah Craft says:

      Theresa, I just wanted to let you know that I empathize with your pain. My mother has been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, and is refusing to take treatment anymore. The whole family is in fear that he will hurt herself, or end her life. She is ruining her life, and I am powerless to do anything to stop it. I often think that she is possesed. I will pray for you and your son. Please pray for my mother.

    • 2 Timothy
      6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
      7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
      1 Corinthians 14:33
      For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints
      Plead the blood of JESUS CHRIST over your sons mind body and soul, break every bondage from the past and break every generational curse and sever those ties by the name and blood of JESUS CHRIST, speak life into his mind body and soul in the name of JESUS CHRIST

  3. At the age of youthwe live in flesh and there some default thoughts and desires in our mind as humans. But some are sin in the eyes of God.. and one of it is sexual desire/lust. In flesh, we are bounded to this desire but as saved christians we should keep on control in so that we do not commit any sinful activities. My question is, what ifthis desire keep on knocking our heads? When we feel weak to control the desire.. and we keep on falling to it, is there is any evil spirits working on in background or it is just us? Im a bit confused as I see many christian fellows (including me) let this desire go on through them. What we should do? Or is it just our age, in youth-hood… it is okey and soon when we are mature-adults we can come in to a control and it is not a big deal as many thinks? Please help me understand and if can,give me tips on how to come into a control of this desire and live a life that is pleasing to God in this issue.Thank you.

    • Eph 4:26 Be ye angry
      We have emotions that crop up from time to time. Paul is speaking on the topic of anger, but there is a spiritual principle we can apply to lust, I believe. “Be ye angry” give us permission to have the initial feeling or emotional response.

      and sin not:
      The feeling of lust is not sin in itself.

      Reference James 1:13 “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: :14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. :15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”

      When we dwell on our own lust, we are drawn into temptation. The lust is not temptation at first. It is just a thought. Tie this in with 2Corinthians 10:3 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: :4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;):5 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;”

      We either take that initial thought captive, or, it will take us captive as it follows the progression of sin outlined in James 1 and Ephesians 4. How do we take it captive? By exposing it to the Word of God which is the knowledge of God. Lust exalts itself against the knowledge “thou shalt not commit adultery” and also 1Co 6:18 “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.” Lust says, “its great and you can get it free.” The knowledge of God says, don’t do it, it will profoundly impact your own flesh. We must choose and note how quickly…

      let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

      Our choice to subject our impulse and emotion, and neutralize or cast down the thought(s) behind them must take place quickly. No longer than 24 hours is mentioned for us to get our thoughts captive. If we entertain this ‘guest’ in our minds we risk violating verse 27…

      Neither give place to the devil.

      The devil begins to occupy our God given territory. The birth of a stronghold begins. A fortress is built over time. Brick by brick, stone by stone. But frankly, even Gibralter is vulnerable if there is no one tending it. If we have let this sin take root in our lives over the years, there may be a strongman, a devil, in position to hold that territory until it is overthrown by the person’s will and resistance walking in the Power of God . This brings up the three levels of deliverance as I see them.

      1 – Hearing of the Word. “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”

      2- Resistance. “Resist the devil and he will flee from you, draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

      3 – Speak to the mountain.

      Mat 17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
      Mat 17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
      Mat 17:17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
      Mat 17:18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
      Mat 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
      Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
      Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

      Kingdoms are prophetically referred to as mountains. Mountains are themselves ideal for strongholds, incidently. Jesus gave us authority to speak to Satan’s kingdom and command it to be removed from a person’s life. This is done when the person, from the heart, has filled their mind with the Word of God against the sin area of their mind. When we confess our sin, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. We then have authority to speak to the strongman of lust and let him know we are taking back our turf. Then we live day by day with God’s Word at the forefront of our thinking in how we view men, or women. They are our brothers, or our sisters. We are here to protect and defend them, not use their bodies and defile them, or ourselves.

      I hope this helps.

      Blessings and Peace,

    • Dear ,

      When you came to your Lord Yeshua the first time… You were filthy, riddled with the disease of sin in your flesh, your mind and your soul was carnally orientated…

      When you accepted Him as your Saviour and Master over your Life…you were given a New Spirit…one of Life in our Lord… You became a NEW PERSON, and the OLD person you used to be…died… (Problem is, You know it, G-d knows it…but your old carnal self needs convincing…it still thinks it’s alive and kicking!)

      You awakened to Him…you became aware of a New Life Force in you…one that seeked Him, and your desires became to Know Him, and have a relationship with Him… You began to find out what His Will is, and your whole life began revolving around obeying His Commandments to show your Love for Him…

      When you became this new person…when the carnal Old Person died…it’s sins died with it… It was destroyed…and it is only a corpse… Your “flesh” (desires for the things of this world, the carnal things)… is dead…you still have it, but it’s dead…

      Your basically now have a choice which you never had before… Before, you couldn’t HELP sinning… Your mind was focused on everything to please your flesh… You HAD to have that chocolate….you HAD to see that ‘dubious’ movie…you HAD to wear that Lacoste Shirt…you HAD to have that girl in your bed… and NO ONE could point a finger at you because ‘WHO exactly did they think they were!!! criticizing YOU?!!!

      All your thoughts, all your desires were centered on yourself…pleasing yourself, satisfying your own needs…and protecting your own image in the eyes of the world.. showing off, it was all about you, you, YOU….

      Your Rebirth caused you to become ‘CUT OFF’ from this “persona of self”… Almost as if you split into two people now in one body… Suddenly you awakened to the fact that life DOESN’T revolve around you…and you became aware of this Loving G-d, Yeshua who showed you the way of altruism… Of denying self, and instead using the breath He gave you and the body He gave you to bring Glory to Him…

      But the Ego…the carnal self which has been unplugged in your system, won’t go quietly… It’s demanding attention..it’s demanding satisfaction, it’s demanding even revenge against this ‘New Spirit Person’ who now shares the same body with it…

      It was quite happy having this Spirit Person dead and quiet… Because the Carnal self is not spiritual…it’s physical…worldly… Now Yeshua came and plugged you into Spirit again…You became Reborn in Spirit…and suddenly this Spirit of yours, is telling your carnal self to go die some place… REVOLUTION…overthrow of Government happened in your body… and your carnal self ain’t happy…

      You as the New Spirit, takes control of government in your own body…and carnal self becomes the terrorist…trying to sabotage your new government around every corner… Your Spirit self says…”Body…you have been doing your own thing long enough…now we are doing things Yeshua’s way!” You are now incorporated into His Body…and you are going to have to learn teamwork with all the other bodies who belong to Him. And your carnal self shouts…’FOUL’…I am MY OWN person, I want to do my OWN THING!!! This is not fair…been doing a good job by myself, why this submission all of a sudden?

      This is now the point where you as a New Creature in Yeshua, Born of Spirit is supposed to tell your ‘flesh’… Be quiet! Dead flesh don’t talk!!! But we dont’ always do that…and we stumble… Now there is a sin between your Spirit self and your Lord Yeshua…A SIN WHICH IS NOT FORGIVEN…YET….. Carnal self won some ground…and makes the body feel so nice…remember how things used to be?

      If you allow this to continue, you will eventually slip back into carnal mode…and you can actually KILL that New Born Spirit Person you have become!!! You CAN let your light go out!!! Eventually carnal self will convince you through all the ‘feel good’ – “remember how you loved this?” messages to TURN BACK from the Narrow Road you embarked on when you first asked Lord Yeshua to become the Lord of your life, and put you back on the BROAD road which is the Highway to Hell….

      However…If you as New Spirit Man in Yeshua refuse to accept this deception and manipulation…you go on your knees…FIND the desire which caused you to fall for the temptation in the first place…. and DESTROY it in the presence of the Lord! Ask Him to forgive you and to let His Holy Spirit make you aware of any other potential desires which can cause you to fall into a temptation.

      Carnal self has many desires…and you KNOW THEM ALL..deep down inside..

      But we sometimes deny their existence…because they are ‘too bad’ for your New Spirit man to be reminded of them… The Holy Spirit however, has no scruples…He will bring them all out one by one…and you will feel TERRIBLE and cut into pieces when His Light shines on them…

      You will feel ashamed, degraded, humiliated and many times you won’t believe that THIS WAS YOU!!!! before your Salvation… Even Satan will stand there and say…”See, this IS you…do you really think G-d can forgive THIS?”

      Everytime a desire which can lead you into temptation to sin pops up…this process is going to repeat itself… It’s hard to be broken to pieces by the Altar of G-d…but it’s necessary… The Cleansing Fire of the Holy Spirit burns VERY Hot…and it’s going to hurt many times… But rather this, than kidding yourself that you are ok, and just let it ride until next time….

      This is the time you tell Satan: “No G-d cannot forgive this..that’s why my carnal self..my flesh HAD TO DIE!!!!” If your flesh dies, the sin in it dies with it….The New Spirit person will not be held accountable for that sin, provided he TRULY turns away from it!!! You can’t have a life of sin and think whatever you did in the day you can just fix before bed time with a “Please forgive me Lord” prayer…. Repentance means to: a) recognise the sin, b) reject the sin, c) rebuke the desire that caused it, d) ask Yeshua for forgivenes and e) WALK AWAY FROM IT AND NOT DO IT AGAIN!!!

      I am now DEAD in my flesh, DEAD to sin, and DEAD to your attempts to make me sin…so GET BEHIND ME!!! in the Name of My Lord Yeshua the Messiah! And he will leave…

      This is now your walk with G-d…and step by step He will (when you ask Him in all humbleness and sincerety) expose every hidden desire you may have… Each one who is a potential portal for Satan to come through and tempt you into sin… and your job is to bring that desire out into the open…confess it to Him, and then rebuke it in His Name…so it can be destroyed…

      When no desires are left in you…except to Follow Him and obey His Will…you will finally be free to walk with Him, …knowing that there is no desire left, which Satan can use to tempt and tantalize you into sin… Your flesh with it’s sin…will finally be a corpse…and the dead can’t respond to temptations…

      Remember…at the slightest temptation..REBUKE Satan! If only you know how many times a day I have to say SATAN GET BEHIND ME! To thoughts that pop up in my own mind…and they leave, because they never were from G-d…

      Know that when a thought first pop up in your mind that is either the DESIRE…or the TEMPTATION…it’s NOT the sin yet… You now have the choice to ‘ENTERTAIN this thought..making it YOURS…and thereby sinning already, even if you didn’t commit it physically yet… OR…to rebuke it immediately with “Satan get behind me!” and it will leave your mind as quickly as it came…

      Any thought that focusses on you, your image, your desires, your esteem, your wants (not your needs), your ego…is evidence of a desire…which must be rebuked..

      G-d bless you friend…

      Your Bro in Yeshua….

  4. Chris McD says:

    I feel that I have become a major target of some evil attack, I am a very loving kind hearted person and I think this could be why, Weird things happend to me when I was younger and I had some very bad experiences on drugs, These experiences were of total destruction of me and eternal pain, I don’t / can’t understand why, I was baptised when I was younger and have accepted Christ into my heart. I have not touched drugs for 2 years now, I felt like I was being controlled and manipulated by an external entity, and sometimes it feels like something try’s to control my thought’s leading me down the wrong path, seems to me the devil’s or demon’s favorite tools are fear and the use of sexual desire against me.

    I can no longer love a normal life this has been going on for over 4 years now since I had these experiences, feel’s like the world is crashing down around me, I am in constant anxiety and fear, no one seems to understand because it seems too hard to explain.

    What do I need to do to stop this from happening and who should I see to seek christian support?

    Thankyou, Chris..

    • Hi Chris,

      I feel for you. I can’t promise you an easy escape but I can give you certain necessary conditions.

      1. You have to mean business with God 100%. You can’t play with sin if you want to get and keep deliverance. Jesus has to be first.

      2. You should seek out people who amongst other things cast out demons. Of the few equipped Christians even fewer are willing to do this kind of ministry.

      3. You need to seek out places where the presence of God is moving, the Word of God is preached without compromise, and there is love. Hang out at those places.

      4. You need to discipline your mind to meditate on and speak the Word of God.

      5. You should read up on self-deliverance – for example – “Christian, set yourself free” by Graham Powell.

      Where are you living? I might know some competent people not far from you if I know where you live.

      • Hi there I hope I am replying to the post, where you said you may know people in areas I need serious help I have had problems since I was 5 years ols I used to leave my bosy and float out of it, later It all developped into mental illess and 32 years so far of locked up in hospitals on and off, with servere fear and anxiety, and loads of funny things going on so dark, I used to shut myself in a dark room and black out windows, I build a room to hide in all day and even used sunglases. I became worse since I gave my life to Jesus, its such a long story after all its been a life of struggle. And all pastors have given up on me. I have numerous books on Demons etc. And have grahams powells book also. I have tried on and off for many years to put it into practice, But I just get to unwell and cant cope, and may lose my wife and life as I get urges to jump out of window and have had to cuff myself. I love Jesus and live the life he called me to. I do on the other hand share the Gospel most days on the Internet and people often get saved but they know not my inner troubles. I don’t like to say much often as there seems to be no real help, but I still hope so. I love God so much and want to be free. So back to the reply do you know any one who is anoited to drive such evil away in Europe. I can now travel a little as 17 out of 21 years away from my home land england I have been house bound. God bless you all, and love in his name.

        • Hi, I don’t know if the people from Ellel ministries who are based in England could help you. If Henry Wright comes to England he could probably help you. Please persist in attempting to follow the instructions in Graham Powell’s book and also in the writings and tapes of Derek Prince.

          Sorry I am not so well informed about England and the most effective ministries there.

          • I am a pastor based in England with considerable experience in enabling people to walk free from demonic bondage.

            I am more than willing to help anyone. Feel free to email me or contact me via my website.

            Blessings and love,

    • Hi Chris,

      See my response in “Is it a Devil” and see if that offers some insights. If you or your family has Masons or Rosicrucians in the family tree, there may be curses coming down the line as well. What are your thought?

      Blessings and Peace,

    • go to YT and watch a video called soul ties
      1 Corinthians 14:33
      For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints
      1 Timothy
      6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
      7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

  5. Dear unknown friends,

    My partner recently left the family home in torment and crisis. He was using phrases about how he despised the kids and that needed headspace and his own place. He is treating me like he has never known me although I had believed that we were deeply in love for seven years and were engaged to be married.
    He has demons within that have overtaken his true soul purpose and has become consumed with wicked human ego and will to the piont that the only person he has any time for is himself.

    I had been emailing prayers to him when I recieved the following message back from him:

    Please stop sending me this messages and emails.

    They appear as an indirect effort to sway emotions that a quickly dying within me.
    I don’t want to take this tone with you, but this continuous bombardment of messages
    of love and prayer etc do nothing for me and just feeds my determination to continue
    life as I choose.
    I don’t want to discuss this further and have a lot on my mind.
    I hope you understand
    Many thanks
    Addy

    His name is Addy and I kindly ask that anyone with a spare minute in the day sends love and healing thoughts and deep prayer for him to reject and renounce evil and re-gain his inner peace.

    Thankyou in anticipation, Claire.

    I beleive my daughter has a demon. She keeps reading awlful books, and has been growing angrier over the past 3 1/2 years. I don’t know if she has accepted Jesus, but she professes to be a Christian. She also thinks that I am crazy. How do you exercise an unwilling subject?

    • IneedJesusso says:

      Keep praying for her and never give up, get down on your knees and beg for the Lord to save her from any harmful demons. Pray from the bottom of your heart. A heartfelt prayer from a loving heart for another, will not go unnoticed by God. Remember to persist at all costs. Pray for the Lord himself to put his hand on your daughter to remove anything that is harmful to her soul and believe. I remember a verse in the bible that backs this up mark 7;24 about the Faith of a Syrophoenician Woman

      24Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre.[g] He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. 25In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an evil[h] spirit came and fell at his feet. 26The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.

      27″First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.”

      28″Yes, Lord,” she replied, “but even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”

      29Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.”

      30She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.

      I don’t mean to alarm you, it is just demons need to be stopped, they want to intrude in our lives and the lives of our loved ones, They wish for us to trip and fall spiritually, so as to try and get a foot hold. The young and less experienced Christian can at times be vulnerable. It is by the grace of God that we can be rescued by Christ. This passage proves your prayers will be able to help. I have prayed for both yourself and your daughter, and indeed your entire home and those in your environment. That you will be in the Lords safe keeping. Read the article and details on the top of this page also. It will give you important information before you go about this. Ask for the prayers of others also on the prayer request page on this site, it can’t do any harm. Strong faith is key though, remember you can’t take these kinds of prayers on with half belief you need to be rock solid in faith. There is information on this site about spiritual warfare also, which could be helpful. God bless you Dear Sister.

  7. I am a pastor and have prayed for several people. Yesterday I prayed for a demon possessed lady who was delivered. She happens to be a christian but not fully committed. Next day when I went over to pray for her she was hissing and cursing. I continued to rebuke the spirits and prayed over her yet to no avail. She simply laughed and said “i’m not going, no matter what you do. Jesus can’t drive me out.” I persisted in prayer and left after a hour or so while she sat on the bed sarcastically laughing. I dont know what to do or what else to do. Can you please advise. please hurry!

    • michael says:

      Unless she is committed to the Word of God she cannot and will not keep deliverance anyway. Jesus can drive any spirit out – the problem is when people don’t really want their demons to go, or they want to be half hearted.

    • warrior daughter says:

      Just by the little bit you posted, there is a spirit of rebellion in this woman and that spirit has its roots in witchcraft….She may have dabbled in witchcraft or her ancestors….The strongman must be bond first….I would also say that along with rebellion she has a spirit of haughtiness…They go hand in hand…..This woman must want to be totally delivered….It must be on her part and not those around her….Sometimes people get so use to being demonized, they do not realize what the problem is….If she has been under an ancestoral curse, then she would not realize it since it has been there since before birth….. The demon (demons) likes to lie and he was trying to convince you that Jesus can’t drive him out….He knows that when the woman desires deliverance, he must go and until that time he will be bringing more of his buddies in to wreck havoc in her life…

      You have not stated if you are a man but I would advise you to not do this on your own…You need to have several other Spirit filled Christians with you when you are in the presence of this woman….Several reasons for this is to keep people from gossiping that you are alone with her, to keep your witness without blemish, ect….Also when doing deliverance it is always best to have a team of Spirit filled Christians to pray and to discern things and just to help….These others need to be trust-worthy, without fear, no unrepented sin in their life and not gossip about the deliverance….

      Blessings……………

      Before you go to bed plead the blood of Jesus over you and your bed in your room.
      I was a brand new youth pastor at the age of 21 and i invited this kid to church on a sunday night we were walking into the church and this kid stopped his face was pale and he was scared so bad he said he cannot go in there.He started walking away and i went to talk him into going in.,I asked if i could pray for him he said yes.I went to put my hand on his shoulder,He rolled his head back and said dont in a threatening way,my hair stood up all over and i new he was possessed.The Holy Spirit emboldened me to tell him that there was heavenly angels encamped round about him right now.He started walking out into this dark field.I started pleading the blood over him.I went into the church and i was attacked,I could not focus or concentrate,The pastor was preaching on demon possession,Wow God is so awesome,My pastor said he needed to pray,do you know what he did in that prayer? He plead the blood of Jesus on the congregation and i was no longer attacked.Thank you Jesus

      • I dissagree with the statement “You cannot do self deliverance,” I believe that Paul was once Stoned & he Laid his hands on himself & was healed by God. But if you think about it ; no one can heal without the power of the Holy Spirit of God & in the name of Christ Jesus. God is alawys healing but for some it takes longer than others. However there is nothing wrong with Spirit Filled people laying on of hamds and anointing them with oil and prayed over for deliverance. But if they are not Holy spirit Filled. You do Not want them to lay their hands on you. Be careful & listen to God in this. Bless you all in christ Jesus , your sister in Christ, Annette

        • Timothy Luke says:

          There is scripturally a place of self-deliverance in "resist the devil and he will flee from you." It is good to seek Godly help for deliverance when needed, but I would not encourage someone to not speak to the enemy and toss him out.

          Regarding Paul being healed by laying hands on himself, you are entitled to that belief, it is simply a matter of you reading into scripture something that is not there. Perhaps you heard a preacher preach that, perhaps it is a conclusion you came to, but that incident of him being left for dead and getting up has no mention of hands to my recollection.

        It seems like you’re a prophet. MayI please have a prophecy?

        • Marilena Fackerell says:

          Hi,

          Usually, according to God’s Word, prophets don’t give words at people’s demand, but only at God’s command. Therefore it is tempting a prophet to speak a word when God does not command. I suggest you trust in the Lord, as all His sheep can hear His voice, but only as we diligently seek Him. So if you want to hear God, seek Him dilligently and it will happen for you. Best to be led by God directly as that gives you inner assurance and let God choose when He wants or feels necessary to talk to you through a prophet. God bless you. Mari Fackerell

    • warrior daughter says:

      You do not say if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior….That is the first step….There are ministries through out the world that do deliverance in the name and through the Blood and the power of Jesus Christ….Just by the little bit that you wrote I would say that there along with being demonized that you have inherited generational demons….The devil and his demons use fear along with lies to keep people from God who loves them…The devil and his demons are out to lie to you, kill you, to deceive you, trap you and do everything possible to utterly destroy you….There is absolutely no way that God hates you…You are in His thoughts constantly…His love for you is eternal that means it will last forever and you do not have to do anything to make Him love you….God wants only want is best for you and He has a perfect plan for you and the devil does not want this plan to succeed and will do everything to keep it from happening…You are very precious to God…Jeremiah 29:11 states this and is true since it comes from the very mouth of God “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope”

    • Hello Simon,
      I believe by posting this it is a start to your answers.
      Sit down and ask yourself what is going around in your life, what you angry at and why and how you can change this.
      Then pray everyday to Jesus/The Lord and ask him to deliver you, start going to church as well. Praying i the Lord’s house help you too.
      The Lord loves you, it is us that let him down by our sins, he is with you and the angels are around you.
      Throw away any bad things in your house too.
      I pray the Lord helps you from this torment you suffer.
      God Bless you

    • youngblood328 says:

      pray for your deliverance. ask god to reveal things in your life that are “open doors”

      remove them, repent and renounce these things..and break curses.

      pray for the holy spirit and blood of jesus to cleanse you. pray for believers to be put into your life to help with your deliverance. pray protection for your mind body and life. surround yourself with praise.

      praise god openly believing for your deliverance.

    • How long have you been demon possessed. I am 39 and have been all my life! It is hard just to focus on myself. Annoint your mind with olive oil. Ask in Jesus’s name to surrent you with his angels to fight these demons for you. I have been in and out of the hospital because, I strongly feel the devil is angry because the Holy spirit has been talking to me to let me know that he is pulling me out of the darkness.
      Jesus will succeed but it is a tug of war over my mind. In the name of Jesus Christ and all is angels, God is almighty and can do anything. I pray in the name of Jesus christ that he will fight your battle and deliver you forever, in the name of Jesus. I plead the blood of Jesus over you and your entire family. I pray that if this is stimmed from a generational curse, that all demons are sent back where they came from and burned in the lake of fire forever never to return to you. In the name of Jesus you are healed.!!!!!!! Trust me I know how mental bondage is. I am healed in the name of Jesus christ.

    • plead the blood of JESUS CHRIST over your mind body and soul, speak life speak love and peace to your mind body and soul, tell the voice NO JESUS CHRIST LOVES ME HE DIED FOR ME I AM A CHILD OF GOD, those are true statements find scriptures like saved by GRACE I am a CHILD OF GOD,
      Jeremiah 29
      11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
      12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
      13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
      this helped me not to commit suicide, GOD spoke this words to me and voila darkness disappeared in a second
