Title: Part 32 – Enough is Enough to Captivity of Satan and welcome to Freedom in Christ Jesus – Can Spirit Filled Christians be under the influence of Demonic, Evil Entities? B + What is the Nexus between Memorization, Meditation, Trust, Greater Exploits and Demonic Oppression? + Three (3) MAJOR testimonies stories of deliverance amongst spirit filled Christians by Derek Prince
Friends, Welcome to part 32 of enough is enough to captivity and welcome to freedom in Christ Jesus.
Question: Can Spirit Filled Christians be under the influence of Demonic, Evil Entities? B + What is the Nexus between Memorization, Meditation, Trust, Greater Exploits and Demonic Oppression?
Also, the three (3) Major testimonies of deliverance amongst spirit filled Christians by Derek Prince includes – First Testimony Case – Challenged In My Own Pulpit by Derek Prince; Second Testimony case – Fall Out from “Challenge on my pulpit” – Mass Deliverance born; Third Testimony Case – Clean and free – young man from a Christian family who was taken Captive by the occult
Now, concerning the question on Nexus between Memorization, Meditation, Trust, greater Exploits and Demonic Oppression, I have noticed brothers and sisters that it is not about the amount of words that we have in our head that matters, although that is great, it is the amount of words that is in our hearts which compels us to obedient actions in line with what we have stored in our hearts. The words that we meditate with the Holy Spirit providing compelling answers stays as active trust (faith) in our hearts and not words that we memorize because meditation is of the heart and memorization is of the head. Memorization is good but meditation is the best.
That’s why God told Joshua in Joshua 1:8
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good [a]success.
And Jesus broke God’s word concerning meditation by saying in
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
7 If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.
Memorization is a worldly intellectual process of learning while meditation is a spiritual heavenly learning that gains earthly supernatural manifestation. This is where “Greater Exploits” begin to gain earthly manifestation in our daily experiences.
Any relationship with God that has no relevance in our day to day experience in connecting, engaging and converting souls is useless. That was why Jesus said in
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
13 You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.
14 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your [a]moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and [b]recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.
Christianity is a heart relationship between us and our heavenly Father in absolute trust or absolute faith in God. Trust or bible faith can only be developed where these four elements are present: Consistency, Compassion, Communication and Competency. You can’t forgo any of the four (4) because each of these four elements are completely indispensable. If you drop any of them In your relationship with God, then your trust in Him or your faith in Him will have K – Leg. There will be no “Greater Exploits” or we will have exploits with k – leg
Trust in God needs to stand on a four-legged platform!
Jesus told us that the only way to tell who are His and who are not will be by their fruits – experiences of love. Not by the miracles, signs and wonders performed, not by the doctrines or the denominations or the church they attend but by the fruit of spirit lead love towards God and others. He said in Matthew 7:15-21
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves.
16 You will [a]fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?
17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [[b]worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit.
18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear [c]excellent fruit [worthy of admiration].
19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire.
20 Therefore, you will [d]fully know them by their fruits.
21 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.
How do you then move the words from your mind, the realm of intellect which is memorization to the realm of the heart which is the realm of meditation?
First, you process what you have read that has been stored in your mind or memorized by asking these questions and communicating with the Holy Spirit to instruct or teach you the relevance of that word to you.
For instance. The Scripture that says in Luke 10:27
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
27 And he replied, You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.
Ask the Holy Spirit, “What does it mean to love God?”; In what ways can I love God better than what I am doing right now? Do I really love God from my heart? What is my motive for loving God? Is it selfish or selfless? What ways have a failed God in my work and walk with Him?
Same set of questions can be asked concerning Loving your neighbor. As you keep these questions coming throughout the day or week or month in your heart, not in your head, the Holy Spirit will begin to pump answers back to you through your own thoughts, dreams, visions, or from sermons or He will go practical on you by providing answers through somebody you just met on the street. Something will happen and how you respond, the Holy Spirit will bring up answers in practical ways that you can relate with easily based on your wiring. Key point is that you can’t box the Holy Spirit. He can determine when, where, how, what to respond to you.
As you keep this meditation up, it creates an invisible environment of the word around you, sipping into your heart from your head. What you meditate about, long enough to build an environment around you. If you meditate about God, it builds God’s presence around you. If they are thoughts about healing, it builds a healing atmosphere around you and repels sickness from you – spiritually speaking.
Where then does deliverance from demonic activity come in all these discussions?
The demonic oppression is at the mind level and they can distort what you read or what the Holy Spirit is speaking to you concerning the scripture. Demonic presence can trigger hatred for God’s word and develop a thought pattern that leads to negative emotions which leads to negative actions which keeps people bound.
If you have exhausted 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, 30 years or 50 years as a Christian and you notice there is a habit pattern that is destructive or unscriptural and you can’t seem to get out of it? there is a likelihood that a contrary spirit is or are in operation requiring deliverance.
We can’t continue to box all our negative habits and character to “I am a work in progress” Yes, we are not all perfect but there must be a visible fruit of progress in our lives.

1 – First Testimony Case – Challenged In My Own Pulpit by Derek Prince
My congregation were good Pentecostals and I loved them. They sometimes testified, as Pentecostals are trained to do, of the peace and joy they enjoyed as Christians. I did not doubt their sincerity. But I also knew that at times their claims to peace and joy were a religious facade. Behind it were unrelieved tensions and pressures, which they did their best to suppress or conceal but which they never really overcame.
I began to preach about deliverance in a roundabout way. I suggested that perhaps some personal problems that were never fully resolved might be due to demonic activity. But my hints had little effect. My people sat back with indulgent smiles. “Our pastor’s got a bee in his bonnet,” they seemed to be saying, “but he’ll get over it.”
Left to myself, I do not know how I would have resolved this issue. But I was not left to myself. One Sunday morning, about a month after we ministered to Esther and Rose Henderson, both God and Satan intervened unexpectedly and shattered the superficial calm.
That morning I had chosen as my text part of Isaiah
59:19: “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” Although I was not aware of it at the time, I discovered later that one of my members had been recording the service on a reel-to-reel recorder. Listening to the tape later, I was able to evaluate objectively the content of my message, as well as the events that followed.
After I had been speaking for about fifteen minutes, the Holy Spirit took control of me, and I started saying things I had not planned to say. Even the pitch of my voice changed. I became unusually bold.
The theme of my message was: No matter what the devil does, God always has the last word. God began to bring examples to my mind.
“Egypt had their magicians,” I said, “but God had His Moses. Baal had his prophets, but God had His Elijah.”
Then the thought came to me that when God wanted to show Abraham what his descendants would be like, He took him out on a dark night, showed him the stars of heaven and said, “So shall thy seed be” (Genesis 15:5, KJV).
“We are the seed of Abraham by faith in Jesus Christ,” I said, “and we’re like the stars. When all the other lights are shining, you don’t see the stars. But when every other light has gone out, then the stars shine brighter than they have ever shone before. That’s how it is going to be at the close of this age. When every other light has gone out, we who are the seed of Abraham through faith in Jesus Christ-are going to shine like the stars.”
When I spoke these words, a young woman seated alone on the front pew let out a prolonged, bloodcurdling shriek, threw her arms into the air and slumped to the floor in a very unladylike posture. She lay there writhing and moaning right in front of my pulpit.
This was satan’s challenge to my declaration that no matter what the devil does, God has the last word-a demonic manifestation directly in front of my pulpit! I had to either prove what I was preaching or stop preaching it.
At that moment, I decided I would not back down before Satan. On the other hand, I felt I needed some support, so I called my wife, Lydia, forward. I knew I could count on her. Feeling I needed more reinforcement, I scanned the faces of my good, Pentecostal church members. They were all in a state of shock. Then, at the back, I saw our Presbyterian friends, the Faulkners, and called them forward.
The four of us gathered around the woman, whom I did not immediately recognize, as she lay writhing and moaning on the floor. Sherry Faulkner did not wait for a word from me. She was like a terrier after a rat.
“You spirit that’s in this woman,” she said, “what is your name?”
From the young woman’s throat came a harsh, gruff, masculine voice that said, “My name is….” But it would go no further.
Again, Sherry asked her question, and the demon said, “My name is …” and stopped.
Each time she asked, she got the same response. So I stepped in and addressed the demon with the same formula I had used with Esther: “You spirit that’s in this woman, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I’m speaking to you and not to the woman. What is your name?”
The demon responded again, “My name is …
Each time I repeated the question, the response was the same. I found myself in the same, intense, person-to-person conflict I had experienced while ministering to Esther. But this time I had my congregation as an attentive audience!
I recalled that the disciples had reported to Jesus, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name” (Luke 10:17. So I said to the demon, “In the name of Jesus, you are subject to me. What is your name?”
Still the same answer: “My name is …” and no more. I saw that I had to beat the demon down with Scripture and the name of Jesus, and began to do so.
Suddenly the demon gave in. It shouted loudly, “My name is … lies!”
Everyone in the congregation went up into the air and came down on their seats with a bump!
I did a quick mental check with Scripture. In 1 Kings 22, I recalled, there was a lying spirit in the mouths of the prophets of Ahab. So, the reply I had received was scriptural. And I got the impression somehow that this woman had been listening to lies rather than telling them.
I said to the demon, “You lying spirit, come out of this woman!”
The demon defied me; it refused to come out. But by this time, I was confident that if I persisted in using the name of Jesus, it would have to obey me. Finally, after about ten minutes, the demon came out with a loud, sustained roar, like an express train going past. No human lungs could have sustained that volume of sound for so long. As the demon came out, the woman’s tongue protruded out of her mouth, bluish in color and twisting like a snake. Then, as the roar subsided, she collapsed on the floor like an empty sack.
Standing there at the front of the sanctuary, I thanked the Lord quietly for my previous experience with demons in the privacy of my own home!
MORE TO FOLLOW!
It was evident that one demon had gone out of this young woman, but the pressure within me warned me that there were others still to be dealt with. Without this warning I could easily have said, “Praise the Lord, our sister has been delivered! “and done no more. Sooner or later, however, her conduct would have revealed that she was not fully free, and the ministry of deliverance would have been discredited.
At the same time, I felt it would not be appropriate to continue the public ministry in the Sunday morning worship service. So, I said to John Faulkner and the church treasurer, who was standing nearby, “If you will take this lady into my office, I’ll continue with my sermon.”
The two of them, along with Lydia, marched her off into my office while I returned to the pulpit. I found myself preaching to round eyes and open mouths. The morning’s demonstration had convinced them of the reality of demons far more effectively than any sermon!
After a little while, I heard dull thuds coming from the direction of my office. Then Lydia put her head around the corner. ”You’d better come in here quickly,” she said.
I knew she was not given to panic, so I said to the people, “I’ll close my sermon now, and you can either stay in the church and pray, or go home-whatever you feel like.”
Just as I left the platform, a member of the congregation, a godly woman who was the mother of the church pianist, walked up to me and said, “Mr. Prince, was that our daughter?”
I stopped in surprise. Sharon, our pianist, always sat in the front row. She was a solid Pentecostal, saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit since childhood. Her father was a Pentecostal pastor, her husband a Pentecostal Bible student and her brother-in-law a Pentecostal minister. She was a quiet young woman whose ministry was to play the piano, not in the least like the woman on the floor. I did not know how to answer.
Finally, I said, “I think it must have been Sharon. There was no one else on that pew.”
“May I come with you to the office?” ”By all means.” Sharon’s husband and father joined us, too, and we
made our way together to the office. It was a scene such as I had never imagined. John Faulkner and the church treasurer each held one of Sharon’s arms, but whenever she could get a hand free, she was tearing off her clothes.
This is where preachers get into trouble! I thought to myself.
Aloud I said to Sharon’s husband and parents, “If you’d like to take Sharon to a psychiatrist, that’s perfectly all right with me. I will do nothing more unless you all assure me you want me to continue to handle this case.”
“We’d like you to handle it,” they all replied.
John Faulkner asked to be excused and left, followed by the treasurer, as Sharon’s husband and father took charge of holding her. As she came under their authority, the manifestations subsided.
Then Sharon’s mother drew me aside and began to tell me that she had been seeking an appointment for me to counsel with Sharon and her husband. This mother, a trained nurse, used discreet, professional language to describe what was happening between the young couple. In that decade, Christians did not use the term oral sex, but I understood that was what she wanted to communicate.
I recalled the strange contortions of Sharon’s tongue
as the lying spirit came out of her. Was that perhaps a manifestation of the demon’s activity?
As I began to talk to the family, another element came to light. Sharon had developed a strange infatuation with her brother-in-law-her husband’s brother-who was a minister. The two of them were exchanging letters that seemed harmless, yet could have sexual overtones. Sharon actually had one such letter, addressed to her brother-in-law, in her purse at that moment.
“That is a sinful relationship,” I said immediately, “and unless you repent and give it up, I cannot pray for you. You cannot expect Jesus to deliver you if you continue in this sin. But if you are willing to renounce it, then give me the letter that’s in your purse, and I’ll tear it up in front of you.”
It took ten minutes to convince Sharon. Finally, she handed me the letter, and I tore it up and dropped it into the wastebasket.
As I put my hand on Sharon to pray for her, she slumped to the floor in a sitting posture, and I slipped down beside her. I felt the Lord showing me that there was only one position in which Sharon could receive deliverance: with her body pressed forward and her head between her knees. It was as if the Lord Himself was gently directing my movements. I put my hand on the small of Sharon’s back and pressed her body forward. Then I began to command the demons to come out.
For the next hour or more, they came out one by one, naming themselves as they did. Nearly all the names had a sexual connotation. One named itself as flirtation and another as petting. Some of the names were obscene.
Surprisingly, my hand on Sharon’s back served as some kind of electronic instrument. As each demon came out, I felt a gentle impact against the palm of my hand as if it were “registering” its departure.
When it seemed that the last demon had gone out, Sharon collapsed limply on her back on the floor and lay there for about ten minutes. Then she raised her arms in the air and began to praise God for her deliverance. As far as I could perceive, Sharon was fully delivered.
Yet the final outcome was sad. Sharon never came back to our church. She was too ashamed to be seen by the people who had witnessed her conduct that Sunday morning. To me, that seemed an indictment of our church. We were so “respectable” that people who were really in trouble would not come to us.
This led me to search my own soul. What was I pastoring? A middle-class social club that met on Sunday mornings? Or a place where people with real needs could come for help?
The decision I made determined my future. I could not in good conscience give the rest of my life to pastoring a middle-class social club. I decided I must devote the abilities God had given me to helping the people who most needed my help, even if it meant departing from accepted norms of religious behavior.
But I had no idea what direction this decision would take me.
2 – Second Testimony case – Fall Out from “Challenge on my pulpit” – Mass Deliverance born
While Lydia and I were busy ministering to people in our home, our congregation was busy too, discussing what had happened to Sharon, our pianist. Some of our people were jubilant over the victory that had been won. Others were fearful and confused. So I announced that I would give systematic teaching on this topic at our midweek Bible Study.
About one hundred people gathered. I led them objectively through the New Testament references to demons, taking care to point out how to recognize and deal with them. But as I prepared to close the Bible study with a standard pastoral prayer of dismissal, the people began to protest.
“You can’t stop now!” they said. “We need help.”
“How many people need help?” I asked. “Put up your hands.”
When about fifty people raised their hands, I was faced with a crisis. I remembered my intense struggles in ministering to one individual at a time. How could I possibly cope with fifty?
At that moment, I received a flash of inspiration. I recalled occasions when I had preached a message of salvation and ten or twenty people had come forward to repent. Never for a moment had I imagined that it was my responsibility to save them. As I had led them in a prayer, each one made personal contact with the only One who could save him or her-Jesus Christ, the Savior. Over the years I had seen hundreds of people receive salvation by this simple procedure.
The same Christ who is the only Savior, I reasoned, is the only Deliverer. Only Jesus can break the power of demonic bondage in people’s lives and set them free. So, I should be able to introduce them to the Deliverer in just the same way.
I asked those who had raised their hands to come to the front, telling the others to stay and pray quietly in their seats. Then I explained to those wanting deliverance that they needed to make direct personal contact with Christ, and I outlined four simple conditions they needed to meet:
1. Be sure you have repented-that is, turned away from every form of sin.
2. Look only to Jesus; He alone is the Deliverer.
3. Base your appeal solely on what Jesus did for you through His death on the cross, not on any “good works” of your own.
4. Be sure that, by an act of your will, you have forgiven every person who ever harmed or wronged you.
Finally, I reminded them of the promise through which I myself had received deliverance from the demon of depression: “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Joel 2:32). I also quoted the words of Jesus: “In my name you shall expel demons” (Mark 16:17, Weymouth). And I added, “In the name of Jesus you have the authority to expel them from yourselves.”
I led them in a simple, step-by-step prayer covering the conditions they needed to meet, and closed with, “And now, Lord Jesus, I renounce any evil spirit that has gained any control over me, and I claim Your promise of deliverance. In Your name, Lord Jesus.” Then I prayed a collective prayer for all of them, as they began to receive deliverance.
The next fifteen minutes were lively-screaming, sobbing, coughing, shaking. Some fell to the floor, while others gave no outward indication that anything was taking place inside them.
When things quieted down, I asked how many of them felt they had received the deliverance they had prayed for. About 75 percent raised their hands. The remaining 25 percent needed further, individual ministry. I dismissed the people whose needs had been met, and Lydia and I did our best to help those who remained behind. In most cases we simply stood with them, encouraging them to press through to deliverance for themselves and to use the name of Jesus against their enemy. We also gave them appropriate Scriptures to quote.
In some cases it became clear that they had not fulfilled all the conditions I had outlined. The hindrance we needed to emphasize most, as it turned out, was failure to forgive those who had harmed or wronged them.
Out of this experience I learned one vitally important principle: The most important issue was not whether I had the necessary authority, but whether the people seeking deliverance had met God’s conditions for receiving it. The promise of Jesus to His disciples has never varied: “Behold, I give you the authority … over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19. The variable factor in each situation is the response of those to whom we minister. When people meet the scriptural requirements, deliverance follows.
Full deliverance, however, may not be immediate but progressive, as people come to understand the various areas of their lives that have been affected by demonic influence. Often there looms in the background the dark shadow of a generational curse or a curse from occult sources.
3 – Third Testimony Case – Clean and free – young man from a Christian family who was taken Captive by the occult
Testimony of a young man from a Christian family who was taken captive by the occult. Eventually he gained understanding of the demonic realm, received deliverance and became a successful pastor.
My parents are godly, born-again Christians. Like little Samuel of old, I was dedicated to serve the Lord from my conception. My parents taught me in the ways of truth from my youth. At the age of four, I would stand and preach to my folks or anyone else who would listen. In my early years my heart was tender toward the things of God, and I was always quick to pray and repent when I wronged God or man. My precious parents taught me the best they could to walk in God’s ways, but they erred greatly because their tradition did not teach them that occult involvement was much worse than their traditional “thou-shalt-nots. “
To read the funny papers on Sunday, to go to a movie at any time or to condone drinking or smoking was unthinkable. But they never dreamed that allowing me to listen to ghost stories from my grandmother would start me on a path of heartache that would last over twenty years.
I first came into contact with my grandmother’s stories at the age of seven. From that point on I could find joy in little else but the study of the occult. Radio programs of the ’40s and ’50s such as Inner Sanctum, The Shadow and The Whistler held my undivided attention. When TV came in, Night Galler Alfred Hitchcock and The Twilight Zone, plus any other kind of horror show, were my delight. By the time I was in the sixth grade, Edgar Allen Poe was my favorite author. A Baptist Training Union leader had introduced me to Poe’s writing after a church Halloween party.
At age eleven, I told God in one of my frequent rages to get out of my life and leave me alone. I would buy small animals on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis and torture them to death. (I did this out of sheer compulsion. Years later I found out it was an integral part of witchcraft.) As strange as it may seem, I loved animals and wanted to be a doctor of veterinary medicine.
I would walk up to Christian workers and tell them I hated them. No form of discipline, word or rod, could constrain me. Rebellion and utter hatred of God, church, Christians, school, all forms of authority, and especially my mother and father, ruled part of my being. The other part of me longed to be kind and loving.
I finally came to a saving knowledge of Jesus at the age of 25. Even though God intervened and I was born again, my relationship with my parents was very bad. I loved them because of Jesus, but I could not be civil toward them for more than an hour. After a short period of close fellowship, anger and hate would surface and my misery would spread to all those around me. I tried to suppress my inward pressures, but they showed themselves by my craving for alcohol and food. I was 5′ 71/2″ and weighed 217 pounds.
Was I really saved? Yes! Yes! Yes! I would spend hours weeping over lost souls, memorizing Scripture, witnessing and teaching the Word. What was so tragic was that still no one had ever told me that ESP, Ouija boards and books on psychic phenomena were forbidden to me as a believer. Therefore, I taught these to my First Baptist Church Raining Union class, thus stirring up in them the same idolatry and witchcraft my grandmother had stirred up in me years before.
Praise the Lord, one day as I told a fellow believer about my ESP, he told me to leave it alone, as Scripture warned against it. Oh, how I thank God for that man! His simple warning helped me begin on the path to deliverance.
Wanting to obey the Lord, I stopped all contact with the satanic realm. This was a good beginning, but what I really needed was complete renunciation of Satan and deliverance from the demons that had entered because of my interest in the occult.
How do I know I had demons? The day I stopped flirting with Satan and started obeying the Word, my internal problems and fears intensified. The anger and hate got worse. I began to have hallucinations night and day that presented the Jesus I loved in a most defiling way. Though I was happily married, my problem with masturbation was uncontrollable. My greatest plague was that I was a latent homosexual. I never gave in to it, though I had to fight it constantly. I would have horrible thoughts of being with men, and desires to dress like a woman. When I was alone, this evil spirit would manifest and I would take on effeminate mannerisms.
I hated and loathed these things with all my might. I prayed, repented and tried to crucify the flesh, not realizing that my problems had gone past the earthly, past the soulish, into the demonic (James 3:15). I had two fountains within me: One loved souls, blessed God and yearned to serve Him. The other defiled me with unclean thoughts and desires, blasphemed Jesus and cursed the saints. I would have willingly admitted all this to anyone who could have helped me. No one I knew had the power to deal with my problems, even to the point of listening to them. So I had to keep it all in as best I could.
In December 1969, my wife and I were introduced to the deliverance ministry. When it was mentioned that Christians could have demons, I gave no argument. My spirit leaped for joy, as I knew I had found the answer to my problems. A brother in Christ ministered deliverance to me, commanding the spirits to leave. I literally felt them move up from my stomach through my mouth, coming out in sighs and yawns.
From that day to this, I have never been plagued with masturbation. Plus my anger and hate were gone. Now I can spend hours with my mother with no schisms. I can actually hug her with love and compassion.
For several months, I was on cloud nine. Then suddenly the latent homosexuality and hallucinations started again. To be exact, it was about two o’clock one morning when I was awakened by demonic harassment from within and without. By this time, I knew how to cast out demons and resist Satan, but my relief was only temporary.
Just when I was about to lose hope, I heard a Derek Prince tape saying occult sins had to be confessed and renounced by name. This was something I had not done. I immediately did so, realizing where most of my problems had come from. Shortly after this I went through my greatest deliverance service.
One day I was driving from Columbus, Georgia, to Montgomery, Alabama (a little over one hundred miles). During a time of horrible harassment by demons, I called on Jesus with all my might. He took me back in mental visions to instances that began at age four when demons first entered me. As He showed me each instance, I would renounce the sins involved and command the demon to come out. For more than an hour, demons came out of my mouth, the top of my head and shoulders. By the time I got to Montgomery, I felt wrung out, but I was free-free for the first time in years.
Since that time my spiritual growth has progressed rapidly. My time and energy can be directed toward fruitful ministry rather than wrestling continually to suppress desires and thoughts that used to threaten my very existence. Also, the Lord has taken me from 217 pounds to 155 happy pounds.
Praise the Lord! Because of Jesus, I am clean and free.
Now, prayer for self-deliverance
SHORT PRAYER FOR SELF-DELIVERANCE.
“Lord Jesus Christ, I believe You died on the cross for my sins and rose again from the dead. You redeemed me by Your blood and I belong to You, and I want to live for You. I confess all my sins-known and unknown- I’m sorry for them all. I renounce them all. I forgive all others as I want You to forgive me. Forgive me now and cleanse me with Your blood. I thank You for the blood of Jesus Christ which cleanses me now from all sin. And I come to You now as my deliverer. You know my special needs-the thing that binds, that torments, that defiles; that evil spirit, that unclean spirit—I claim the promise of Your word, “Whosoever that calleth on the name of the Lord shall be delivered.” I call upon You now. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, deliver me and set me free. Satan, I renounce you and all your works. I lose myself from you, in the name of Jesus, and I command you to leave me right now in Jesus’ name. Amen!”
Let it come from your heart and see the salvation of the Lord!
ARE YOU SICK OR A NEED FOR Deliverance and RESTORATION?
For those who are sick or unwell in whatever shape or form, or needing deliverance? Or restoration, kindly touch the dot below in faith (Faith is seeing the precise positive outcome of your current situation, knowing that Jesus has done His part more than 2000 years ago to secure your healing and deliverance, restoration as a down payment, trusting that down payment is available to you to draw from, like a positive balance in your checking account with the bank, no questions asked as we agree with you and pronounce BE HEALED in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen)
By the authority, you have granted unto me and unto them, I exercise that authority now in faith with their anger against the enemy and hunger to get what you have freely given unto them all, I curse every illness, every disease, be it cancer, COVID 19, be it spirit of infirmities, be it demonic possession or oppression, be it the spirit of poverty, setbacks, delayed fulfilment of what God has already determined and released. We come against the anomaly, I bind them, we curse them to their root and we cast them out by authority in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. We call forth a release of healing, deliverances and restoration into their lives in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord for testimonies that are abiding to your glory and honour and adoration. Thank you for souls that are being added to Your kingdom as a result of this message, the miracles that we are already seeing right now and manifesting for your glory in Jesus name, Amen. It is done! Rejoice!
