The need for Holy Spirit Baptism for power to confront demonic forces:
Let me lay some scriptural foundation on this subject of Christians that are under the oppression of the demonic forces. The key element in our ability to wage a successful campaign against the realm of wickedness is the living breathing presence of the Holy Spirit in us. Brothers and sisters, we all have the Holy Spirit when we confessed Christ Jesus, got baptized in the Holy Spirit and became joined heirs with Christ.

By the way, so many Christians are not baptized in the Holy Ghost. They got water baptism but not the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire.
Matthew 3:11 – “I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming soon who is greater than I am—so much greater that I’m not worthy even to be his slave and carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
4 And while being in their company and eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised, Of which [He said] you have heard Me speak.5 For John baptized with water, but not many days from now you shall be baptized with ([a]placed in, introduced into) the Holy Spirit.
In Acts 2:38-39 Peter said, “Repent and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
Acts 5:32 states, “And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
Let us look at the outplay of the above scriptures of Matthew 3:11, Acts 1:3-4, Acts 2 and Acts 4 in Acts 8 with Philip and the Samaritans and Simon the sorcerer: Observe the process of sharing the word, healing, casting out demons, water baptism and subsequently baptism in the Holy Spirit and a call to repentance as it applies to the characters mentioned above. It is a two point process.
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
4 Now those who were scattered abroad went about [through the land from place to place] preaching the glad tidings, the Word [[a]the doctrine concerning the attainment through Christ of salvation in the kingdom of God].
5 Philip [the deacon, not the apostle] went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed the Christ (the Messiah) to them [the people];
6 And great crowds of people with one accord listened to and heeded what was said by Philip, as they heard him and watched the miracles and wonders which he kept performing [from time to time].
7 For foul spirits came out of many who were possessed by them, screaming and shouting with a loud voice, and many who were suffering from palsy or were crippled were restored to health.
8 And there was great rejoicing in that city.
9 But there was a man named Simon, who had formerly practiced magic arts in the city to the utter amazement of the Samaritan nation, claiming that he himself was an extraordinary and distinguished person.
10 They all paid earnest attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is that exhibition of the power of God which is called great (intense).
11 And they were attentive and made much of him, because for a long time he had amazed and bewildered and dazzled them with his skill in magic arts.
12 But when they believed the good news (the Gospel) about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ (the Messiah) as Philip preached it, they were baptized, both men and women.
13 Even Simon himself believed [he adhered to, trusted in, and relied on the teaching of Philip], and after being baptized, devoted himself constantly to him. And seeing signs and miracles of great power which were being performed, he was utterly amazed.
14 Now when the apostles (special messengers) at Jerusalem heard that [the country of] Samaria had accepted and welcomed the Word of God, they sent Peter and John to them,
15 And they came down and prayed for them that the Samaritans might receive the Holy Spirit;
16 For He had not yet fallen upon any of them, but they had only been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.
17 Then [the apostles] laid their hands on them one by one, and they received the Holy Spirit.
18 However, when Simon saw that the [Holy] Spirit was imparted through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he brought money and offered it to them,
19 Saying, Grant me also this power and authority, in order that anyone on whom I place my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.
20 But Peter said to him, Destruction overtake your money and you, because you imagined you could obtain the [free] gift of God with money!
21 You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is all wrong in God’s sight [it is not straightforward or right or true before God].
22 So repent of this depravity and wickedness of yours and pray to the Lord that, if possible, this [b]contriving thought and purpose of your heart may be removed and disregarded and forgiven you.
23 For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in [c]a bond forged by iniquity [to fetter souls].
24 And Simon answered, Pray for me [beseech the Lord, both of you], that nothing of what you have said may befall me!
25 Now when [the apostles] had borne their testimony and preached the message of the Lord, they went back to Jerusalem, proclaiming the glad tidings (Gospel) to many villages of the Samaritans [on the way].
I must highlight here that without the Holy Spirit baptism, our ability to fend off attacks will be weak indeed. We can see from above that there was water baptism in verse 13. Also note that Simon the sorcerer also got baptized in water, obviously confessed Christ like some of us today.
Did the demonic spirit of sorcery leave Simon? Of course not. He also wanted power so He can give the Holy Spirit to others by laying on of hands. Read through to the 24th verse. You see that Simon as per confession and water baptism was a Christian but still a sorcerer. So many in Christendom today carried every junk from past life, never repented or renounced old worldly life and evil practices as Simon was instructed to do and still have links back to the satanic realm.
Some have never renounced the link to the demonic although not actively practicing in it. But by initial agreement, they have unwittingly tied themselves to the realm of darkness and opened like a wide gate to the demonic realm who can come to plunder whenever, however and whatever they desire done – Remember that satan is a legal expert extra ordinary – You can’t cut deals with the devil and just imagine that a confession will cut it. There is a need for repentance and renunciation to break every link to the satanic realm and burn every asset you have had linking you to that realm. And also, going through deliverance to detach self and others from the demon that enforces that covenant.
Simon needed deliverance from links to sorcery as instructed by Peter in verse 22 downwards. Simon himself knew he needed help as highlighted in verse 24.
It would be rash to assume that Simon no longer needed deliverance from demons, even after he believed and was baptized.
The Holy Spirit Does not come to indwell us because we are already perfect. The Holy Spirit come to help us so that we may become perfect.
Yes, our spirit is renewed but our realm of the mind or soul and body is still undergoing transformation Romans 12:2. Those are the two realms where the demonic lodge when we provide doorways to them.

There are many warnings to Christians to be on their guard against the attacks of Satan. Peter, speaking specifically to Christians, says:
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
1 Peter 5:8-9
There are two parts to Peter’s admonition. First, we are to be self-controlled and vigilant. Otherwise we will not detect the presence or activities of demons. Second, we are to resist demonic pressures, taking an active stand against them. If we obey these instructions, we shall be victorious. But if we are not self -controlled and vigilant, we will fail to recognize and resist our enemies. Then they will invade us and seek to destroy us. The most serious mistake we can make is to act as if there is no danger.
Certain passages in the New Testament warn us explicitly against exposing ourselves to demons. One tool Satan uses regularly for this purpose is deception. In 1 Timothy 4:1 Paul’s warning is urgent: “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”
Paul speaks here about people who, through yielding to the influence of demons, “depart from the faith.” Obviously, they could not depart from the faith unless they had been in the faith. As Christians, they had apparently opened themselves up to deceiving demons and consequently turned away from their faith in Christ. Our only safeguard is to be vigilant at all times and to resolutely reject all demonic pressures and deceptions that come against us.
How People including Christians Get Exposed to the Dark Realm and need of Holy Spirit Baptism
“the devil chooses the weakest moment and the weakest place.”
To attempt a comprehensive explanation of all the possible ways is far beyond the scope of this message. we will simply describe seven examples of moments or places of weakness through which demons habitually gain access to human personalities:
1. A family background in the occult or false religions
2. Other negative prenatal influences
3. Pressures in early childhood
4. Emotional shock or sustained emotional pressure
5. Sinful acts or habits
6. Laying on of hands
7. Idle words
Let us look at each of these areas of vulnerability.
1. A Family Background in the Occult or False Religions
In Exodus 20:3-5 the Lord warns of the evil consequences when people become involved in idolatry or false religion:
“You shall have no other gods before [or beside] Me.
“You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me.”
God warns against all forms of idolatry or other involvement with false “gods.” The evil consequences of these particular sins can extend to four generations. Counting backward for four generations gives us four levels of ancestors: gives 30 persons
Any or all of these thirty persons could be a channel through whom we may have been exposed to satanic influence. I doubt if any of us can guarantee that none of our thirty immediate ancestors was ever involved in any form of the occult or false religion.
This occult influence can begin while we are still in the womb. After all, what is weaker or more helpless than an unborn baby? It is entirely dependent on its parents for protection. Righteous, God-fearing parents provide that protection, but parents with an occult background expose their babies to the same spiritual influences that are at work in their own lives.
We have discovered that such babies are often demonized before they emerge from the womb. This is particularly true of people with backgrounds in Eastern religions such as Hinduism or Buddhism, or other false religions such as Freemasonry or Mormonism.
2. Other Negative Prenatal Influences
Other negative forces may also affect an unborn child and expose it to demonic influence. A mother may resent or even hate the baby in her womb. Perhaps the mother is not married, or the father is unfaithful and irresponsible, or the mother may simply not want a child.
One thing a baby longs for, both before and after it is born, is love. When it does not feel love, it will probably begin to feel unwanted. This will in turn expose it to a deeper wound: rejection. Many babies are born with a spirit of rejection already in them.
Mothers who were already having a hard time making ends meet resent the prospect of yet another mouth to feed. They may or may not have verbalized their resentment, but the sensitive little personalities in the womb felt it and came forth already carrying a spirit of rejection. This is just one of various demons that may affect an unborn child.
A woman carried such rejection spirit because the mum never wanted a baby at the time this woman was conceived. At age forty, this woman was saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit and in water. She was already in the Lord’s service yet she had an ongoing battle with rejection until the demon was identified and driven out. So many Christians are in that category. Deliverance has come in Jesus name, amen. Get ready to follow the 9 step process.
3. Pressures in Early Childhood
In James 3:16 we are warned, “Where envy and self- seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.”
Broken, strife-torn homes, in which parents are in bitter conflict with each other and/or have little time for their children, provide an atmosphere that invites the presence and activity of demons. Most young children lack the necessary emotional and spiritual defenses to withstand such demonic pressure. Observation is that most demonic problems begin in childhood.
In families in which the father has been an alcoholic, or cruel and dominating, or violent and abusive, girls often develop an intense hatred of men, which opens the door for the demon of hate. This is particularly true if the father has abused his daughters sexually.
Other demons that commonly exploit such children are rejection, anger, fear, rebellion, misery, loneliness, depression and sometimes suicide. In the West there has been an alarming increase in the number of teenage suicides. In the U.S., from 1952 to 1992, the incidence of suicide among adolescents and young adults nearly tripled. In 1992 more teenagers and young adults died from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, strokes, pneumonia, influenza and chronic lung disease combined. In almost all these cases, according to diagnosis, the demon of rejection opened the way for the demon of suicide.
4. Emotional Shock or Sustained Emotional Pressure
In 1 Peter 3:6 the apostle explains that Christian women may qualify as daughters of Sarah “if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.” The Greek word translated “terror” has a wide range of meanings. One lexicon describes it as “any vehement emotion; passionate excitement.” Another renders it either actively as “intimidation” or passively as “terror.”
Women often, but not always, have weaker emotional defenses than men. They are especially subject to fear. One woman had the spirit of fear that had entered her when a frightening automobile accident took place right in front of her.
Today, the vast coverage of the media means that millions around the world are exposed to sudden, shocking incidents. A brutal murder or a bus blown up or a building exploding may leave an indelible impression not only on the victims who survive, but on all the men, women and children who view the horror again and again on television.
Men as well as women are subject to many other forms of emotional pressure. Both men and women are subject, for example, to the passionate excitement of sexual desire. Sudden, unpremeditated yielding to such desire can often open the door to a spirit of lust. Indulging in sexual fantasies or watching pornography can have the same effect.
It sometimes happens, too, that a child or young person subjected to sexual assault may in that way unwittingly open up to a demon of lust. The demon has no respect for “innocence,” but simply uses this moment of weakness to force its way in. From that moment on, the child or young person is subjected to pressures of lust that are not the expression of anything in his or her character.
But it is not always a sudden surge of emotion that opens the way to a demon. It may be some persistent, unrelenting pressure. A man who through no fault of his own has to spend many weary months without employment may begin to brood over his inability to provide for his family. Discouragement may affect him in various ways. Some tactless remark by his wife or trivial disobedience by his children may provoke a sudden outburst and open the way for a demon of anger to slip in. Or the continuing pressure of enforced inactivity may open him up almost imperceptibly to a dark spirit of depression or hopelessness.
Similarly, a woman whose husband continually belittles and criticizes her may finally yield to a spirit of hopelessness. Or a mother seeking to protect her child from dangers that are often more imaginary than real may project a spirit of anxiety on the youngster, until the spirit forces its way in and takes up residence in the child.
Obviously, there are many kinds of emotional shock or pressure to which people may be subjected. But these few examples may alert you to this form of demonic attack and help you build up your defenses against it.
5. Sinful Acts or Habits
Sometimes a single decisive act may open the way to a demon. The decision of Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus was such an act. When he went out from the Last Supper with this intention, Luke records, “then Satan entered Judas” (Luke 22:3). Judas himself opened the door that he could not afterward close.
Actions much less heinous than that of Judas may open the way for a demon. Once, a woman was being prayed for who needed deliverance from a spirit of lust. When the demon was commanded to come out of her, it answered, “She invited me in!”
“When did she do that?” The minister asked?.
“When she went to that dirty sex movie,” the demon replied.
The woman had to repent and ask forgiveness for her sin before the demon could be compelled to leave her.
We need to remember that Satan is a legal expert. When some sinful act has opened the way for a demon, it will not leave until the sinful act has been confessed and canceled by God’s forgiveness.
Any act of deliberate wrongdoing may open the way for a demon. Many such acts are possible-telling a premeditated lie, for instance, or shoplifting, or cheating on exams.
Again, it may not be a single act that opens the door. It may well be the deliberate, persistent practice of a sinful act that eventually becomes a habit. Secret sins like repeated masturbation or fornication or pornography almost inevitably open the way for demons. But other, more “respectable” habits can have a similar effect. Frequent overeating opens the way for a demon of gluttony. Persistent daydreaming opens the door to a spirit of fantasy. Habitual exaggeration in conversation opens the way for a lying spirit.
6. Laying On of Hands
Laying hands on a person in prayer is not just a picturesque religious ritual. It can be a powerful spiritual experience, a temporary interaction between two spirits through which supernatural power is released.
Normally the power flows from the one laying on hands to the one on whom hands are laid, but at times it can flow the other way.
The power may do either good or evil. It may emanate from the Holy Spirit or from a demon, depending on the one from whom it flows. For this reason Paul established certain safeguards. “Do not lay hands on anyone hastily,” he wrote, “nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure” (1 Timothy 5:22). In other words, be careful with whom you allow your spirit to interact!
The laying on of hands should be done reverently and prayerfully. Any person participating should make sure he or she is not thereby, in Paul’s words, sharing in another person’s sins.
It is a mistake to turn a group of people loose and encourage them to lay hands indiscriminately on one another. The following brief testimony from woman called Ruth illustrates the danger:
In 1971 I was attending a charismatic meeting, and the speaker asked people to stand if they wanted prayer for healing. I had a bad cold, so I stood. He then instructed people seated nearby to lay their hands on us and pray for our healing. Four or five prayed for me.
When I awoke the next morning, my cold was better- but my fingers were all curled up and stiff and hurting.
Immediately I thought, Someone with arthritis laid hands on me last night! I renounced the spirit of arthritis, and within five minutes all the symptoms were gone.
I was a very young believer, less than one year old, and I have been so grateful to God for teaching me then to be careful who lays hands on me.
7. Idle Words
This is an area in which many of us are caught off guard, yet one about which Jesus gave us some of His most solemn warnings.
“But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
What are “idle words”? They are words we utter thoughtlessly, words that do not express our real thoughts or intentions. When we are called in question concerning such words, we often excuse ourselves by saying, “I didn’t really mean it,” or, “I was only joking,” as though this releases us from responsibility. Yet it is precisely these idle words that Jesus warns us against.
The fact that many Christians are habitually guilty of speaking idle words does not make it less serious. In fact, anyone who considers this warning of Jesus to be unimportant needs to repent.
Idle words can open the door to demons. In a fit of exasperation a person may say, “I’m sick and tired” of whatever it may be. He does not mean it literally, but he maybe opening the door to a demon of sickness or tiredness. Words concerning death are particularly dangerous. Many times people say, “I nearly died laughing,” or, “You’ll die when you hear this one!” Death is a dark, evil power, and we are foolish to treat it lightly.
In a temporary fit of grief or discouragement, a person will often say, “I wish I were dead,” or, “I’d be better off dead.” Words like that are a direct invitation to the spirit of death. Many have being delivered who opened themselves up to the spirit of death by such words carelessly spoken.
Where do the demonic lodge?
1. Emotions and attitudes
2. The mind
3. The tongue
5. Physical appetites
Get the Nine (9) Step Process SCRIPT to Total Self Deliverance
The ministry of deliverance is a harvest field in which many properly equipped workers are needed. We realize, therefore, that many who are reading this text or the audio may not have any human source of help to whom they can turn. But thanks be to God, the way is always open to the One who is the Deliverer-Jesus! If you decide to take this route, we have outlined for you a series of nine steps that can lead you through to the deliverance and victory you need:
Step 1: Personally Affirm Your Faith In Jesus
Step 2: Humble Yourself
Step 3: Confess Any Known Sins
Step 4: Repent of All Sins
Step 5: Forgive All Other People
Step 6: Break With The Occult And All False Religions
Step 7: Prepare To Be Released From Every Curse
Step 8: Take Your Stand With God Step 9: Expel
Read carefully through the nine steps step by step, until you are sure you fully understand each of them. Then, we will provide you with a form of prayer by which you can claim your deliverance from every demonic oppression. You are protected by the blood of Jesus, only when you are rightly related to Him and walking in obedience. Be sure, therefore, that you have prayed the prayer in faith before you take your stand against the demons.
Step No. 1: Personally Affirm Your Faith in Christ
Jesus is the “High Priest of our confession” (Hebrews 3:1 ). The Greek word translated confession means “saying the same as. . . .” Therefore, we say the same about what Jesus has done for us as the Bible has already said. We make the words of our mouths agree with the Word of God. We proclaim the victory of Jesus in a bold and personal way on our own behalf. When we do so, we invoke His ministry as our High Priest to bring our need before God the Father, thus releasing the whole authority of heaven on our behalf.
If we fail to confess our faith in this way, we give Jesus no basis on which to intervene for us.
Prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ, I believe You are the Son of God and the only way to God-that You died on the cross for my sins and rose again so that I might be forgiven and receive eternal life.”
Step No. 2: Humble Yourself
“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. ” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God….1 Peter 5:5-6, emphasis added
If we approach God with an attitude of pride, He resists us and we have no access to Him. So our first step toward God must be to humble ourselves, to say to God, “I need you!”
God never offers to make us humble. Throughout the Bible He places the responsibility on us. God can humiliate us, and sometimes He may have to; but only we can make ourselves humble. If we are willing, however, God will supply all the grace we need.
When we seek deliverance from demons, there may come a point when we have to choose between dignity and deliverance. If dignity becomes more important than deliverance, we have not really repented of our pride.
If you are not prepared to humble yourself, you will not be willing to take the steps that follow.
Prayer: “I renounce all pride and religious self-righteousness and any dignity that does not come from You. I have no claim on Your mercy except that You died in my place.”
Step No. 3: Confess Any Known Sin
Nowhere in the Bible does God commit Himself to forgive sins that have not been confessed. But for those who confess, His promise is clear: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). God is faithful because He has promised. He is just because Jesus has already paid the penalty for our sins.
If you are troubled about some specific sin, be honest about it. Do not call it by some fancy psychiatric name. Most of the names for our basic sins are not pretty. And God forgives them only when we acknowledge them as sins. He never promises to forgive “problems.” If you have a “problem” with overeating, call it by its name: the sin of gluttony. If it is lust, call it lust. If it is hatred, call it hatred. If it is gossip, call it gossip.
Remember, too, that once you have told God the worst about yourself, you have not shocked Him. He knew it all before you told Him. Furthermore, He still loves you!
It is not wise, however, to indulge in self-analysis. Simply relax and let the Holy Spirit bring to your mind any specific sins you need to confess. Remember, He is your Helper.
Prayer: “I confess all my sins before You and hold nothing back. Especially I confess….”
Step No. 4: Repent of All Sins
It is necessary to confess your sins, but that by itself is not enough. You must also repent for your sins. “He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy” (Proverbs 28:13). You must first confess, then forsake your sins. To forsake your sins means to turn away from them completely.
You need to ask Him to help you hate that sin as He hates it.”
Repentance involves two things. First you must accept personal responsibility for what you have done. You cannot hide behind some other persona, parent, spouse or minister, perhaps and hold him or her responsible for the wrong things you yourself have done. Nor can you blame demons for your sin. Your attitude must be: I am guilty, and I acknowledge it.
Second, you must take the same stand against your sin that God Himself takes. Do not try in any way to minimize or excuse it. Hate it as God hates it! Then sin will have no more power over you.
Prayer: “I repent of all my sins. I turn away from them and I turn to You, Lord, for mercy and forgiveness.”
Step No. 5: Forgive All Other People
In Mark 11:25-26 Jesus established an unvarying spiritual law:
“And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
If we desire forgiveness from God for our sins, we must unconditionally forgive all those who have sinned against us.
Matthew 18:23-35 – When we consider the incalculable debt each of us owes God for the sins we have committed against Him, the most that any fellow human being owes us is, by comparison, just a few dollars.
The judgment on the unforgiving servant was to be delivered “to the torturers” (verse 34). If you want to be delivered from the torturers, you must freely forgive all those who have offended or harmed you in any way.
Remember that forgiving another person is not primarily an emotion. It is a decision of the will. First you must make a firm decision. Then you must verbalize it: “I forgive So-and-so of all the wrong he [or she] did to me. I lay down all bitterness, all resentment, all hatred.”
Deciding in your heart, then speaking it out with your mouth, makes your act of forgiving effective.
Prayer: “By a decision of my will, I freely forgive all who have ever harmed or wronged me. I lay down all bitterness, all resentment and all hatred. Specifically, I forgive….”
Step No. 6: Break with the Occult and All False Religion
God hates any doctrine or practice that puts some other person or thing in the place of undivided loyalty and wholehearted worship that belongs solely to God. Somewhere in the background of all these other systems lurks the one who is the archenemy of God and man. If you want to draw near to God, you must sever all contact with Satan.
This includes removing from your possession, and from where you live, anything that in any way links you to the occult or to the satanic. This includes books, souvenirs, charms and objects of art. Remember Moses’ warning to Israel: “Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it…” (Deuteronomy 7:26).
The best way to dispose of such things is, if possible, to burn them. Remember, this is how the Christians in Ephesus responded when they realized their occult scrolls linked them to the power of demons. Follow their example!
If your circumstances prevent you from doing this immediately, make a commitment to God to do it just as soon as you have the opportunity.
Prayer: “I sever all contact I have ever had with the occult or with all false religion-particularly….
“I commit myself to get rid of all objects associated with the occult or false religion.”
Step No. 7: Prepare to Be Released from Every Curse over Your Life
The Bible has much to say about the power of blessings and curses. Altogether it mentions them about six hundred times. Contemporary Western Christendom has tended to focus on the blessings and to regard the curses as a superstitious carryover from the Middle Ages. But this is unscriptural and unrealistic.
Curse is a dark shadow over our lives that shuts out part (at least) of God’s blessings. Two of the blessings that may be excluded by a curse are physical healing and deliverance from evil spirits.
list of some problems that commonly indicate that a curse is at work:
1. Mental or emotional breakdown
2. Repeated or chronic sicknesses (especially if hereditary)
3. Barrenness, a tendency to miscarry or related female problems
4. Breakdown of marriage and family alienation
5. Continuing financial insufficiency
6. Being “accident-prone”
7. A family history of suicides or unnatural or untimely deaths
There is one all-sufficient scriptural basis for release from a curse: the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross by which He took on Himself every curse due to us, that in return we might inherit the blessings of Abraham, who was blessed by God in all things (see Genesis 24:1; Galatians 3:13-14).
If you sense there is some curse over your life, seek release from it on the basis of what Jesus did for you on the cross when He was made a curse.
Prayer: “Lord Jesus, I thank You that on the cross You were made a curse, that I might be redeemed from every curse and inherit God’s blessing. On that basis I ask You to release me and set me free to receive the deliverance I need.”
Step No. 8: Take Your Stand with God
Make a firm decision and speak it out: “I submit my will, my purpose, my future, my whole life to God. I take my stand with God against all sin, all evil and every kind of demon.”
As soon as you take your stand with God, He also takes His stand with you. You can enjoy the confidence expressed in Romans 8:31: “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
One way God may come to your help is by revealing the identity of any demons you need to expel.
Dealing with a demon can be like dealing with a fierce dog. When you call the dog by its name, you have more authority over it. You may already be aware of the names of a specific demon or demons from which you need to be delivered. Or it may happen that as you enter the process of deliverance, a name of a demon will come to your mind. These are two of the ways the Holy Spirit may come to your help.
If the Holy Spirit does give you the name of a specific demon, your next step must be to take a deliberate stand with God against the demon, and to verbalize it. Speak it out: “You spirit of lust [or rejection or confusion or whatever], I take my stand against you in the name of Jesus. I no longer submit to you. You have no more place in me. I command you to go!”
You cannot afford to be passive. Remember James 4:7: “Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
Prayer: “I take my stand with You, Lord, against all Satan’s demons. I submit to You, Lord, and I resist the devil. Amen!”
Step No. 9: Expel!
This is so simple and practical that it does not seem spiritual. But it works! You should not attempt to do it, however, until you have prayed the prayer
The word for spirit in both Hebrew and Greek is the word for wind and also the word for breath. So how do you get rid of breath? You expel it, usually through your mouth.
There are, however, eight other orifices in the human body. At times a demon may come out through any one of them, or in other ways. A demon of masturbation frequently comes out through the fingers. A spirit of crippling is often expelled with convulsive movements of the body.
If it happens that a demon does not come out through your mouth, but through some other orifice or area of your body, you will become aware of it. Cooperate with the Holy Spirit and He will show you what to do. But most frequently you may expect to expel a demon through your mouth.
Prayer: “Now I speak to any demons that have control over me. [Speak directly to them.] I command you to go from me now. In the name of Jesus, I expel you!”
Each time you experience a release, praise and thank God for it. Giving thanks and praise is the simplest and purest expression of faith. It also creates an atmosphere that demons find intolerable.
When you feel your deliverance is complete, or that you have come as far as you can at this time, be sure to kneel down and make Jesus Lord of every area of your life. Remember the warning of Jesus that if a demon comes back and finds the house empty, he will return and bring others with him. On your own you do not have the strength to keep the demons out. But if the Lord Jesus has taken up residence within you, you have His help to keep them out. This reminds me of a woman who was consistently victorious in her Christian life. When asked her secret, she said, “Whenever the devil knocks at the door, I just let Jesus answer!” Do not try to fight the demons by yourself.
If you feel your deliverance is not yet complete, wait until your strength returns or you feel prompted by the Holy Spirit. Then continue with the process of getting the demons out.
The thing that’s really important is that you’ve discovered the reality of demons and how to deal with them. Now you are responsible to deal with them in the same way wherever and whenever you encounter them.”
Finally, here is a reminder that applies to every Christian: You never need to be ashamed of having been delivered from demons. In the gospel record, there was one person to whom God granted a unique and glorious honor: to be the first human witness of the resurrection of Jesus. The incident is recorded in Mark 16:9:
Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons.
Think of it! Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene, who was identified as the one “out of whom He had cast seven demons.” If Mary never needed to be ashamed, no more do you if you, too, have been delivered from demons.
There is, however, one thing of which you might need to be ashamed: if you discovered you needed deliverance from demons, but pride kept you from acknowledging your need and being set free.
One (1) testimony of deliverance from Exposure to Rock Music for application
Rock music is one of the main channels, and its potential for harm is fearsome.
I am writing to you today to tell you of my struggles with demonization. I know what I write probably won’t be new for you, but to friends, family and church leaders, I must look like a psychopath.
It all started when I was sixteen and started listening to one of my brother’s rock albums. This was not just any rock album, but a very demonic album. The album was by Black Sabbath, and the cover had 666 on the top with a demonic-looking creature peering at you. On the inside of the album was a picture of a man in bed with several demons (at least six or seven) around him as if to pounce on him. The look on the man’s face was pure agony. I only listened to it once or twice, but that was too many.
One day I heard a very peculiar noise coming from the stereo cabinet. When I bent over to reach for the doors, a force went in me or through me and pushed me back. This was a very distinct force, and I am sure that demons were involved. I had a thought that I should hide the album so no one could throw it away-surely this was from the demons. To this day I can’t remember where I hid it, even though I pray for remembrance.
Well, ever since then my life has been a living hell. These demons hold me down and paralyze me when I start to fall asleep. I can’t move, speak or open my eyes. All I can do is cry out mentally for Jesus to help me. These demons are vicious; they rape me in every way imaginable. (I could get graphic and give a more detailed account, but I don’t think that would be appropriate at this time.) This was an every night ordeal for me from the time I was sixteen until I was 31. The sexual abuse started to subside when I started attending Bible study and church regularly.
Now, I know what you’re probably thinking: Are you saved, and is Jesus Lord of your life?” I said the Lord’s Prayer when I was twelve with my mother at my side and have said it hundreds of times since then. This is due mainly to the fact that Christian friends, and everyone in any of the churches and Bible studies I’ve been to, tell me this can’t happen to a Christian. So, you see, I’m waiting for signs of my salvation by the evidence of my life getting back to normal. It is hard to believe or have faith when you are bombarded with so many conflicting reports. I can’t even think straight anymore, or hold down a job for more than six to twelve months. I’m not stupid; I earned an engineering degree. I’m just confused.
I come from a so-called Christian family; both my parents are born again, along with one of my two sisters. My only brother is not. My parents are supporters of your ministry but I don’t think they believe in demonization of people. I think this is because every time I bring it up, my father will weakly and timidly tell me to rebuke it in the name of Jesus and turn and walk away. My mother, on the other hand, refuses to acknowledge it and has even told my sister to stop discussing it with me. My mother’s side of the family has a potential demonic nature; her father (dead) was a Freemason and her mother (also dead) and two surviving sisters (living) out of three are involved with Eastern Star.
I know this letter sounds really crazy, but I hope it makes a little sense to you, and I wish I could tell you more, but that would mean writing a book.
Isn’t this tragic? A professing Christian is tormented by demons but receives no understanding, much less help, from fellow Christians
Obviously, the young man was foolish to expose himself to forces so obviously satanic. But others are exposed to similar satanic forces in less obvious forms. The combined elements at a rock concert or discotheque, for example, also open the way for demons: deafening music with an insistent, repetitive beat; lyrics that range from mindless to blasphemous; strobe lights constantly fluctuating in color and intensity. The impact can break down a person’s ability to reason or exercise moral judgment, and thus open the way for demons, especially if alcohol or drugs are involved.
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!
