We see in the bible that Jesus spent a great deal of time healing and delivering people from demonic spirits. He trained the disciples to do deliverance ministry and sent them out with power and authority to do that work. We believe that same call is on the Church today (Mark 16:15-19). Deliverance is the “driving out of demons”.
How Do you Know if a Person Needs Deliverance?
We believe that every believer can benefit from going through deliverance. In general, however, deliverance can be beneficial when someone is unable to gain the victory over some area of their life where they have tried many other means. This would include one or more of repeated prayer, extensive counseling, fasting and more. Areas where we have seen deliverance be effective include battles with depression, anger, addictions, fear, pornography and more!
Can a Christian have a Demon?
Christians can be demon oppressed but not demon possessed. At salvation, a person receives a born again spirit only. Demonic torment/oppression results from strongholds in the soul and body, in the case of infirmity. Christians, are “God-possessed” because at salvation we get adopted into God’s family..
What are some examples of demonic strongholds?
There can be a demonic stronghold in a person’s life when they are unable to gain or keep victory in spite of trying to do all the “right” biblical things. Examples include depression, extreme fear or panic attacks, addictions, perversions.
Can you do Biblical Deliverance on someone who is NOT Christian?
We only minister deliverance to those who have received Jesus as their Savior. If there is doubt, we lead them in a prayer of repentance and a return to Christ, as with the prodigal son. Without that foundation then it will be difficult for a person to get free and ultimately stay free afterwards. The “house” needs to be filled with the Holy Spirit and the person equipped to discern and resist the demons when they seek to return (Matthew 12:44).
How do you respond to those who do not believe in Deliverance?
There are parts of the Body of Christ that believe that the ministry of deliverance ended with death of the apostles. This is one of many issues where brothers and sisters in the Lord will agree to disagree. If we encounter someone who is open, then we ask them to examine the Scriptures and check testimonies from our ministry and others. We will not debate the issue because we have seen the fruit of deliverance in many people’s lives. We do not judge those who disagree and weare certainly willing to try to help them with other counseling issues.
