Casting Demons Out in the 17th Century

Friday, March 14th, 2008

The following was written by David Smithers who chronicles the ministry accounts of the saints throughout church history. In particular he recalls the deliverance ministry aspect of the spiritual giants such as George Fox of the mid-1600’s.

“Soon after George Fox began to preach, he had a remarkable spiritual experience that lasted fourteen days. A certain Mr. Brown, while on his death bed prophesied many great things concerning Fox. “When this man was buried,” says Fox, “a great work of the Lord fell on me.” During this mighty baptism of the Spirit, Fox received a remarkable gift of discernment. “He seemed to be able to read the character of men by looking at them.” Miraculous healings also accompanied his ministry. Through prayer and the laying on of hands, the sick were often healed and devils were cast out to the glory of Christ. When George Fox preached men would shake and tremble. “The name Quaker was given to Fox and his followers because of the quaking of the men who came to scoff but stayed to pray.” This remarkable power seemed to accompany the preaching of Fox wherever he went.

Early Church Deliverances

Friday, March 14th, 2008

The early church had its share of encounters with the devil and his demons. Read the following accounts the early church had with evil spirits. May these stories inspire other believers to continue this ministry of Jesus. –Jay Bartlett

  • • Irenaens against Heresies, Book II, 32:4 (190 A.D.) “For some (Christians) do certainly and truly drive out devils, so that those who have thus been cleansed from evil spirits frequently both believe and join themselves to the church.” Deliverance is also implied to be done by Christians in Book II, 31:2.
  • • Justin Martyr, Second Apology, Ch. 8 (153 A.D.) This apology was addressed to the Roman Senate. “And they {demons), having been shut up in eternal fire, shall suffer their just punishment and penalty. For if they are even now overthrown by men through the Name of Jesus Christ, this is an intimation of the punishment in eternal fire which is to be inflicted on themselves and those who serve them.”
  • • Second Apology, Ch. 6, “And now yon (Roman Senate) can learn this from what is under your own observation. For numberless demoniacs throughout the whole world, and in your city, many of our Christian men exorcising them in the Name of Jesus Christ, who was crucified under Pontius Pilate, have healed and do heal, rendering helpless and driving the demons out of the men, though they could not be cured by all the other exorcists, and those who used incantations and drugs.”
  • • Justin Martyr, Dialogue With Trypho, a Jew, Ch. 30 (150 A.D.), “For we call Him (Jesus) Helper and Redeemer, the power of whose name even the demons do fear, and at this day, when they are exorcised in the Name of Jesus Christ, they are overcome.”
  • • Dialogue With Trypho, Ch. 76, “And now we, who believe on our Lord Jesus, who was crucified under Pontius Pilate, when we exorcise all demons and evil spirits, have them subjected to us.”
  • • Dialogue With Trypho, Ch. 85, “For every demon, when exorcised in the Name of this very Son of God … is overcome and subdued. But though you exorcise any demon in the name of any of those who were amongst you — either kings, or righteous men, or prophets, or patriarchs — it will not be subject to you. Now assuredly your (Jewish) exorcists, I have said, make use of craft when they exorcise, even as the Gentiles do, and employ fumigations and incantations.”
  • • Tatian, Address of Tatian to the Greeks, Ch. 16 (160 A.D.), “Sometimes they themselves (demons) disturb the habit of the body by a tempest of folly, but, being smitten by the Word of God, they depart in terror, and the sick man is healed.”
  • • Theophilus, Theophilus to Autolycus, Book II, 8 (160-180 A.D.), Theophilus is refuting the false teachings of Homer and Hesiod who were famous Greek poets. “… And this clearly appears from the fact, that even to this day the demonized are sometimes exorcised in the Name of the living and true God; and these spirits of error themselves confess that they are demons who also formerly inspired these writers” (Homer and Hesiod).
  • • Tertullion, Apology, Ch. 23, (197 A.D.), “Let a person be brought before your tribunals, who is plainly under demonic possession. The wicked spirit, bidden to speak by a follower of Christ, will as readily make the truthful confession that he is a demon, as elsewhere he has falsely asserted that he is a god.”
  • • Tertullian, Apology, Ch. 37, “Who would save you (Roman Rulers), I mean, from the attacks of those spirits of evil, which without reward or hire we (Christians) exorcise?”
  • • Tertullian, To Scapula, Ch. 4, “The clerk of one of the courts who was liable to be thrown upon the ground by an evil spirit, was set free from his affliction (by Christians); as was also the relative of another, and the little boy of a third. How many men of rank (to say nothing of common people) have been delivered from demons, and healed of diseases?”
  • • Minucius Felix, The Octavious of Minucius Felix, (210 A.D.), “A great many, even some of your own people, know all those things that the demons themselves confess concerning themselves, as often as they are driven by us (Christians) from bodies by the torments of our words and by the fires of our prayers,” (The Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. IV, p. 190.)
  • • Origen, Against Celsus, Book I, 46 (230-254 A.D.), “And there are still preserved among Christians traces of that Holy Spirit which appeared in the form of a dove. The Christians expel evil spirits, and perform many cures, and foresee certain events, according to the will of the Logos.”
  • • Against Celsus, Book I, 67, “And the Name of Jesus can still remove distractions from the minds of men, and expel demons, and also take away diseases and produce a complete change of character ….”
  • • Lactentius, The Divine lnstitutes, Book II, 16 (250-320 A.D.), “But they (demons) fear the righteous, that is, the worshippers of God, adjured by whose name they depart from the bodies (of people); for, being lashed by the Christians’ words, they not only confess to be demons, but even utter their own names.” Also deliverance is mentioned in Book V, 22, and in The Epitome of the Divine Institutes, Ch. 51.
  • • Cyril of Jerusalem, Catechetical Lecturer, 16:12 (350-375 A.D.), “For He (Holy Spirit) employs the tongue of one man for wisdom; the soul of another He enlightens by prophecy, to another He gives power to drive away demons …. “
  • • The Divine Institutes, Book V, 22, “For these (demons), as long as there is peace among the people of God, flee from the righteous, and fear them; and when they seize upon the bodies of men, and house their souls, they are adjured by the Christians, and at the Name of the true God are put to flight. For when the demons hear this name they tremble, cry out, and assert that they are branded and beaten; and being asked who they are, whence they are come, and how they have insinuated themselves into a man, confess it. Thus, being tortured and excruciated by the power of the divine name, they come out of the man.”
  • • Lactantius, The Epitome of the Divine Institutes, Ch. 51, “But of what great weight the cross is, and what power it has, is evident, since all the hosts of demons are expelled and put to flight by it. And as He Himself before His passion put to confusion demons by His word and command, so now, by the name and sign of the same passion, unclean spirits, having insinuated themselves into the bodies of men, are driven out, when racked and tormented, and confessing themselves to be demons, they yield themselves to God, who harasses them.  What therefore can the Greeks expect from their superstitions and with their wisdom, when they see that their gods, whom they do not deny to be demons, also, are subdued by men through the cross?”

Delivered from occult spirits

Friday, March 14th, 2008

This was shared by Thomas, a brother in the Lord who has went through deliverance:

I was in a gospel group For God’s Glory, I was introduced to my Pastor through this group. We were discussing the subject of Deliverance. I went the church talked withe Pastor about attending his deliverance service, because of ties with the occult through dealings in Witchcraft, quaja Boards,etc. The power of the Lord manifest itself through the prayers of the assembly in this church. I was delivered of 18 spirits (pawns) plus the Strongman.

I told my wife about what happened and suggested that she attend the service to become delivered from her ties. She of Hispanic background and there was a lot of demonic ties in her past with the linage of her family using cudoranderas for healing purposes.

She didn’t belive until the spirits start to come out of her and what really close the picture to this was the Strongman manifest himself and she yelled out in the church. “Pastor the Demon is trying to get back in, but he just went out of the church through the wall, “PRAISE GOD”. I’ve been there working ever since. Conducting Spiritual Warfare. The television industry has created a block to the individual mind of the believer and non-believer that the deliverance ministry is a fake or a facade. And if the demons come out there going to jump from one person to the next and everyone is going to be possessed. “NOT”. Once that demonic spirit is bound in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth the control is in your hands, because of the power and authority Jesus has given us. I thank the Lord our father in Heaven for the gift of deliverance and the authority to lay hands and cast out the works of the devil. God Bless you and this Website.

God is so good to us!! HE is in control!!

Healed from abuse, addiction & shame

Friday, March 14th, 2008

This was sent in by Jennifer, a precious sister who’s been through deliverance:

First, I was so excited when I saw the note “Share your testimony” it says in the Word of God, that they overcome Him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. Amen. When I was a little girl I went to church. I went and remember loving it. I had a tough home life. Dad struggled with Alcoholism and mom was co-dependant and didn’t know how to deal with this. Both my parents went to church. But due to the addictions and disfunction in the home, life was aweful. Their was physical abuse and mental abuse. I eventually lost and interest in church and stopped going. I was looking for escape and thought it might be in acohol. I might mention that I was a fatter little girl and had a horrible last name it just gave kids a reason to alienate me and call me names.(enemy!) In no time I was to lost at the age of 17 in an addiction to alcohol. Lost my virginity to a 26 year pushy boy, at the age of 17. Which escalated my drinking and spiral down hill. I did graduate from school, and got a job right after at the local mill with my dad. I used to come to work just wasted. After a few years of that I was 22 and tried cocain for the first time. Then Methamphetamines. I had obviously opened myself up to many things. I was physically sick and emotionally very sick. After over 20 years of torment, I went back to church. At 30 years old I went to an encounters and it was life changing. After deep repentance of my sins, I was one of the first girls up to recieve what-ever it was that God wanted me to have. I was convienced by then that it had to be awesome, and better than anything I’d ever recieved. I was radically delivered! The first thing I felt was love, deep deep love and that I was loved! Forgiveness, and then I heard a woman shout “Spirit of shame, come out in the name of Jesus!” and I felt like a feather and fell. I can remember then seeing many woman praying over me. I remember my body kind of jerking around like their was a fight inside of me, and then finally just complete peace. I sat on a chair in the room for what seemed to be hours, with a smile from ear to ear and couldn’t move. My body felt like it was still plugged in. I just couldn’t move and didn’t. It’s been 3 years, last month. I recieved healing emotionally towards my parents, and love them more than I ever have. I love myself too. But most of all my Jesus, my saviour, and my Deliverer! Hallelujah!~

Priase God for liberating His children!! There is HEALING and DELIVERANCE available through Christ!

Delivered from alcohol addiction

Friday, March 14th, 2008

This was shared by another Mike, who God has called to the deliverance ministry:

I was called to preach at age 14. I went and told the pastor what God was calling me to do. I figured that I would have to finish High School, go to college, before I preached a sermon. When the pastor told me that his office and library were at my disposal and that he expected me to have a sermon ready in the coming weeks, I was scared silly! I began running from God. I could no longer attend church. Every time I went, I was under such conviction that I couldn’t stand it! So, I ran. I began to drink, heavily, to drown out the conviction. I ran for 10 years. By the time I was 24, I was a full blown alcoholic. I was demonized by a demon of addiction. At age 24 I could run no more. I fell to my knees and cried out to God! I told the Lord that I knew that I had messed up my life. If He would clean me up, that I’d go where He wanted and do whatever He wanted. Before I said, “Amen”, the demon of addiction was gone! From that day on, I’ve had no desire to drink! God had set me free! I didn’t realize I had a demon until years later. After all, I was a good Southern Baptist, and we didn’t have demons.

I surrendered to the Gospel Ministry in 1984. I grew up in the Southern Baptist Denomination. I was on staff, or pastored Baptist Churches until 1996. In 1996 I switched to the United Methodist Church. I was a Methodist pastor until 2003. From 2003 to present I have been in a non-denominational Pentecostal Church. Why so many denominations? Well, when I was in college I had an encounter with a demon. However, Southern Baptists do not have demons! So, there was a problem with me being confronted by a demon. Friends and co-workers tried to convince me it was my imagination. By 1996, I’d had enough of the constant fights over Spiritual gifts and the reality of demons. I was too “pentecostal” for the Baptist Church. A Methodist pastor, friend of mine, asked me to check out the United Methodist Church. He told me that they were more accepting of Spiritual gifts and the reality of demons. In 1996 I began pastoring Methodist Churches. Things were great until I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1998. The Spiritual gifts that had been operating in me were increased, greatly! Soon, I began to have the same type of disagreements with the Methodist Church that I had with the Baptist Church. In 2003 I left the Methodist Church and began ministry in the Non-Denominational Pentecostal Church. That, in short, is how I arrived at my destination.

Praise God for the work of the Holy Spirit in our brother’s life!

Depression, occult & freemasonry

Friday, March 14th, 2008

This testimony was shared by Sherri, who went through a beautiful deliverance:

I grew up in the church – was a very ‘good’ little christian girl who did all the right things and followed God to the best of my ability.

The church I grew up in was very traditional in many ways and although they occasionally ran in to demons (as christians occasionally will) they didn’t have a lot of knowledge of them and dealt with them in the normal, traditional christian manner. (ie just rebuked them)

When I became a member of a charismatic church one of my first experiences of it was a very kind lady who saw a spirit of death on me and invited me to go and see a pastors wife who did deliverence ministry. When they prayed for me I ended up on the floor unable to stand, coughing uncontrollably with something trying to choke me. The whole thing went on for a couple of hours and when I walked out I was free from so much of the depression, hopelessness, despair and inner grief that I had suffered all of my life. They didn’t preach to me, they just rebuked stuff and it left.

I went from a church that knew very little about the demonic to contact with christains that not only acknowledged it but were very good at dealing with it.

I can also speak of several close friends who had similar church backgrounds to me who also received great freedom from deliverence ministry.

Jesus went about healing the sick and casting out demons. Not only that but he was doing it in a land of people who followed God. In otherwords he wasn’t doing it to people who were witchs or idol worshipers or in whom you would assume there would be any demons. They were just everyday jews who prayed in the synagogues.

I have since had several bouts of deliverence ministry as I had occultic stuff and high level freemasonry in my generational background and every time I got free from more spiritual garbage and received more emotional healing, peace and freedom as a result.

Praise God!! Notice how sometimes, it takes multiple deliverance sessions before a person is completely free, but each time this sister went in, she came out with more freedom! Praise Jesus!!!

Several deliverances in one sitting!

Friday, March 14th, 2008

Here’s another powerful deliverance story shared by Mike:

I came with 2 other brothers, our ministry leader Rudy from xxxxxxx (church) and Jimmy from xxxxx Church. We had about 40 inmates (primarily believers) in the Chapel and started to worship. After worshiping for approximately 30 minutes, Rudy spoke for about 5-10 minutes. I then approached the podium and started to talk to the men on the subject of “Curses”. About 15-20 minutes into my “unprepared so-called sermon”, I felt the anointing of the Holy Spirit come and “electricity” started to flow within by my body. I knew from past experiences he was prompting me to pray for the men. So after rushing thru my sermon, I told them that God loved them, and that I felt the Holy Spirit was going to do something special tonight. I told them that I believed that he was going to break curses off some of them. I then advised them, “For those who are desiring to be set free, to stand….. close your eyes, and repeat after me in prayer”. All stood….I then said, “Repeat after me only if it comes from your heart and if you agree with what I’m saying”. I started to lead them in prayer by first acknowledging that Jesus is Lord…that he is our Savior and only He can set us free from curses and the strongholds of Satan. I then allowed them a few minutes to personally tell God of their sins and then led them in prayer, asking God’s forgiveness for whatever sins they’ve committed. I then continued leading them by asking God to forgive the sins of their forefathers that has resulted in any generational curses and has come thru their blood-line. (I covered this in my sermon). I told them to ask God’s forgiveness for dabbling in the occult or witchcraft…. for seeking another source of power other than God….to seek also God’s forgiveness in placing any “idols” in their lives….and so forth….

I then invited the holy spirit to come…….(Rudy told me later, he felt a wave of the Holy Spirit wash thru him at that point). I then asked the Lord to bind all spirits and to “sever” all communications between them. I then asked the Lord by the power of the cross, by the power of his son’s precious blood, and by the power of the resurrection to destroy all curses that have been placed upon my brothers before me. I then started to see some of the inmates physically react. One in particular started to have saliva drool from his mouth and his arms started to tremble. I went up to him, laid my hands on him and said, “Spirit, come out!” His entire body started to shake and “bam” down he went, hitting his chair! I asked the Holy Spirit to please continue ministering to my brother. He continued to shake as I left him lying on the carpet. I went to another inmate who was continuing “coughing”. I laid my hands on him and commanded all curses to be broken and commanded all unclean spirit to leave in the name of Jesus. He later stopped coughing and told me he felt something lift out of him. I then asked, ” Those who feel there is something inside of them and feels like it’s stuck or want to come out to raise your hands”. About 4 other inmates raised their hands….coughing at the same time…I laid hands on each one and commanded all curses to be broken and all unclean spirits to leave. They all later claimed they felt something leave or had lifted.

I knew we had only about 5 minutes left, so I called up the brother up who went down to tell us what he experienced. Being still in a dazed he said,” My body started to feel “weird” as xxxxx (refering to me) was praying…I then started to feel my body shake. When xxxxx came and put his hands on me, I felt my whole body shaking some more and the next thing I knew I was down on the floor! I don’t know what happened!” I then asked him how he felt. He said, ” I have been struggling with some issues for a long time and now I feels it’s no longer there. I feel good and know God did something for me tonight! With “watered and thankful eyes” he shook my hands and gave me a big hug and said, “Thank you, xxxxx!.”

The power and love of God is tangible and evident for those who is desiring to know him in a very intimate way. There are some who say, ” We should not seek experiences” …..I say seek God, and he will allow you to experience him! I do not hold back when I say…..I do seek God and I do seek to experience him!

GLORY to God for His power to overcome to darkness in our lives!

Healed of disassociation & infirmities!

Friday, March 14th, 2008

This testimony was shared by a very precious sister, Traci, who is also in the deliverance ministry…

I cannot tell you how thankful for God’s word and promises. His word says he came to heal ALL diseases. When I started studying “A More Excellent Way” and started applying truth and looking for blocks to healing in my life and went to Pleasant Valley Church in Thomaston, Georgia, I got healed of several diseases listed below through deliverance.

– Asthma – fear of abandonment in my life
– Restless Leg Syndrome
– Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
– Fibramyalgia
– Back Pain
– Insomnia – because of trauma in the womb, I never hardly slept as a young person. I was sensitive to any noise and would react.
– Anxiety attacks to the point I could not get out of bed for a couple of days at a time.
– Heart Disease (Mitro Valve Prolapse)
– Oppression and Depression
I had done all the traditional stuff such as counseling, behavior modification, medication, inner healing, been in healing lines, seeding faith, and every other way to overcome my problems either physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally!

Most of these diseases were rooted in fear. Lots of fear entered in my life because of continual trauma done to me throughout my life as a very young person. I had a curse of destruction on my life that played out almost all my life because of what was in my generations (Occultism and assignments on my life – my grandfather being a mason and grandmother being an eastern star and witchcraft on that side of the family) and also because my parents took me to a clinic to get me help as a young person. They thought I had a learning problem when I was just shut down from trauma from my brother that did many bad things to me because of his Envy and Jealousy. I went to this clinic from age 3 to 5 and while there, this man was a mason and did ritual abuse on me. I was used for child pornography to bring in money into their organization.

When the door points to trauma was dealt with (that brings in fear) and the fear issues were dealt with, through deliverance, my body was able to finally go back to peace and not stay in fight or flight. When our bodies are in fight to flight, then you start getting diseased because of high cortisol levels, and other chemicals over secreting or under secreting like serotonin levels that causes depression, etc. Of course because of the trauma, I had a list of people to forgive in my life. The Spirit of Bitterness or kingdom of Bitterness and its underlings as described in Luke 11:21-26 (unforgiveness, resentment, retaliation, anger, hatred, murder with the tongue) and many other spirits tied into bitterness that was cast out after I took responsibility and forgave them. His word says that if we do not forgive, He will not forgive us so why would he heal us?

There were many dealt with through deliverance that set me free.

Through the teachings at Pleasant Valley, they spend a lot of time teaching to recognize our thoughts, recognizing the enemy and what walkout is. We can expect to be pierced but not broken. People are going to hurt you, and how we respond to them determines if we get pierced or broken. If we immediately forgive or recognize we don’t fight against flesh and blood like it says in Ephesians 6:12 and also Paul talks about in Romans 7:17 “Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.”, seeing the people that hurt us have sin in them and separate them from their sin then we just only got pierced, but if I choose not to forgive and get offended and allow a root of bitterness to fester, then I got broken.

I’m a whole person today and no longer fragmented and I praise the Lord for it. I no longer have flashbacks or bad dreams or tormented. I cannot thank the Lord enough what he has done for me. After my healing, I went to the professional counselor to have me tested and I was no longer DID. They could not find my parts.

Today I have a ministry and work with all kinds of people that are mentally tormented, people who are DID or have had satantic ritual abuse done to them, to people who have sickness in their bodies. I have the previlaged to see the finger of God heal these people. I give him all the glory.

People perish from lack of knowledge and we have an enemy out to kill, steal and destroy.

Praise God for His work in her life!!!

Extreme migraines and Freemasonry

Friday, March 14th, 2008

This was also shared by Mike, a fellow deliverance minister:

I was scheduled to minister to someone from another church on a Friday night early last month, when I request via e-mail asking if I could minister to another sister who has been experiencing extreme migraines and headaches almost on a daily basis. She was also experiencing horrible and frightening nightmares. I was advised that the intercessors at the church has prayed and fasted for her, but to no avail. They want to help this sister, but don’t really know what to do now. She has gone to several doctors and to the emergency several times, but nothing has been found. The doctors are continuing their pursuit in diagnosing her problem. (Thank God for doctors! We do need them!) I told her if time permits I would, but it would have to be on Sat, after my scheduled breakfast with their pastor. We met at 9:00 A.M.

As I met with this young sister and the intercessors, she told me that she only starting to experienced these problems when she accepted the Lord less than 2-3 months ago. She also told me that recently she started to experience a migraine when one of the intercessors tried to pray over her. The intercessor told me that it was true and now she’s afraid to lay hands on her? (Sounds like one of Satan’s tactics, doesn’t it?) She also said she felt like giving up on life, she’s cannot continue with the migraines. I reaffirmed her that her decision to accept our Lord in her life was the best decision she made, and that the Adversary is creating havoc in her life for doing so.

We initially dialogue for about an hour, obtaining some family background and issues in her life that she’s been struggling with. I won’t get into the issues specifically, but she repented and forgave. I then told her that I’m going pray over her (without laying my hands on her, I was in another chair), and invite the Holy Spirit and to reveal whatever needs to be revealed. I told her to surrender and cooperate with the Holy Spirit and focus on our Lord. She said she was willing to do so.

I then invited the Holy Spirit and waited upon His presence. Once I felt His presence, she started to gag, placed her hand over her mouth and ran for the bathroom. Upon her return approx 5 minutes later, I asked her if she had vomited. She said. “Yes, she started to feel ill and something started to come up!” I told her that we’re on the right track and the Lord has just revealed that there is an unclean spirit(s) in her, and that the Lord is directing us to remove it.

Did I immediately start to cast out the spirit? No.. I now felt to break curses over. I then explained to her what curses are and gave her biblical support of my perspectives, and how they can create stronghold in our lives today. I told her that I wanted to her to repeat after me, and she said she was willing.

In the process, the word “Freemasonry” came to my spirit. I then stopped her and asked her if she knew anyone in her family, past or present that was a Mason, a Demolay, a Rainbow Girl, a Job Daughter, or involved in any related secret society. She said she didn’t know. I told her to continue to repeat after me, “I (name) renounce all practices or Freemasonry from my life.” When she came to Freemasonry, she went something like Frrrrr… She could not say it! I then commanded all spirits hindering this process to step aside in the name of Jesus. We started again and then she could say it, but strenuously. I had her repeat again and then she could say it without hesitation. (For those of you who minister in this field, try this..have the person you’re praying for repeat after you in breaking curses). I was led to do this by the Holy Spirit years ago. I believe this is one of the ways the Holy Spirit reveals to us curses are applicable today and what curses are existing in someone’s life.

I then commanded the spirit that Jesus Christ is calling forward to come to attention and reveal yourself. To make a long story short, the spirit of Anger and Fear and their right to inhabit was identified. Both were casted-out. Both spirits were directly related to her issues!

The next morning I did a follow-up phone call because I had to catch my flight back home. The sister who initiated the request for prayer told me that she had the best sleep she ever had in months!

Last night, I received another e-mail saying that she has not gotten a single headache ever since that Sat. Praise God! I was also told in the e-mail she is praising God for everything!


This afternoon, I had lunch with her and the intercessor who arranged the initial ministry session. I asked her how she’s doing (it’s been over a month now)? She said she hasn’t had a single migraine or headache ever since her deliverance. She also said, ” I sleep so good now!”

The intercessor (her friend) said she comes to church regularly and just loves the Lord!

I told the intercessor to ensure she continues to receive counseling and mentoring. As I’ve mentioned in the past, deliverance is only part of the package! Praise the Lord for his love and mercy!

All I can say is, let Jesus be praised!!!

Suicide, murder, death, fear, guilt, etc.

Friday, March 14th, 2008

This was shared by Mike, a dear brother in the deliverance ministry:

I invited our worship team to lead in worship, and I went in the back to drink some water. A sister came up to me (who I prayed over at a conference earlier this year) and said when I was speaking the girl that she brought for prayer started to experience extreme pain and got very agitated to the point she had to leave temporary. I told her that it was not unusual for the unclean spirits to react this way when truth is spoken about them. She then asked if I could pray over her. I told her that there was other people I had to minister first too, and if she didn’t mind waiting I would.

It was around 9:30 pm when I sat her in a chair next to me, and asked this 19 year old girl where she fellowshipped at and how long she has been a believer. She said she’s been a believer for 3 years and came over from another island to dorm at our local University for school. She then told what she was experiencing physical pain when I was speaking and got very agitated. She needed prayer because she been struggling with “stuff” and have a hard time reading the bible and going to church. I told her that I was going to invite the Holy Spirit to come and to reveal whatever needs to be revealed. Within maybe 5-10 seconds in my prayer she started to demonically react. I then started to sever all communications between the spirits, and forbade them to draw strength from each other. I started to break curses over her, and then she started to fall from her chair to the floor. I then brought her up to the alter area where there was carpet and continued as she lied down. Through the process, these were the spirits that were identified and casted out:

I won’t get into the specifics, but during this process, I was sworn at, mocked and hit once on my arm. I was told, ” I hate you, and you’re gonna get it!” I was told “Let’s make a deal!’ Of course, I told the spirit the only deal we’ll make is your departure to the feet of Jesus! Her speech was hindered. Bear in mind, the demons were commanded to not to harm anyone and to obey my commands. They continued to resist, but this I know is normal. They cause the sister to comatose several times, but through experience you command and pursue. As per my posts, I’m a supporter in identifying the spirits and their stronghold. Do I do this with every spirit? No, only the ones that I sense I need to. Death was the strongman over Murder and Suicide. Death came in when she attempted suicide because she felt she was alone and no one cared about her. This was spoken thru her by the spirit in a very raspy and low voice. I then commanded Death to go down and the sister to come back up. I had her renounce Death, Murder and Suicide, and ask the Lord for forgiveness. I then casted the spirits out. I then called up the next spirit and Deception came up. What was the stronghold? Under command, Deception said she feels God does not love her. If He did he wouldn’t have allowed her to go thru what she has been going thru. (What a deception!) I commanded Deception to go back down and brought the sister back up and asked her if she doubted God and his love because of what God has allowed her to go thru. She asked me how did I know? I told her that God loves her and He thru the power of the Holy Spirit is revealing information that will set her free. I told her the Adversary has deceived her in allowing her to believe that God allowed things to happened to her because He does not love her. I told her that God do love her and that is why He has brought her here tonight. I then led her thru a prayer of repentance and renouncement and asked the Lord for his forgiveness. Deception was then casted out. Fear came in when she came to the University with no friends, no one to talk to, new environment, knowing no one. Fear was then casted out. Guilt was then identified. After commanding the spirit of Guilt to tell me how he entered in, he told me she stole gum from a store when she was 12. When I brought the sister back up, I asked her if she stole gum from a store when she was 12. She said Yes! and how did I know? Again I reminded her of God’s love. She said she remembered the incident and the name of the store, and how she felt so guilty of doing such a crime. The next and last spirit was Hatred. He challenged me and refuse to reveal his name. Thru experience when this happens, I then seek after how he entered in. The spirit then told me when she was nine, her friends and relatives at a party made fun of her for the way she was dressed. At that point she hated everyone! I caught that and commanded the spirit to speak truth and tell me if you’re Hatred. The demon did confirm he was Hatred. I again brought the sister back up and asked her if she went to a party when she was 9 and her friends and relatives made fun of her because of the way she was dressed? She said, ” How did you know that, yes it is true!” I led her in forgiving those who made fun at her at the party and asked the Lord for his forgiveness for harboring hatred. Hatred was then casted out!

There were many obstacles during the evening, for those of you who minister in this area, you know what I’m talking about. After the last spirit was casted out you could literally see the change in her physical appearance, especially her countenance! You could literally see the joy. There was such a dramatic change! This took a total of approx 3 hrs. It was completed at 12:30 am. After I asked the Lord to fill her the Holy Spirit, she said she felt light and that she knew oppression has lifted. Throughout the ordeal, she wrenched in pain because of the hindrance the demons were causing. She then had no pain at the end! I told her to come back as a follow-up. I always want to ensure all spirits have been casted out!

GLORY to God in the highest!!!
