How do I
know if someone needs deliverance from Evil Spirits?
Where can I find
the answers to my questions and the help I need?
Why don’t more of our churches and institutions
teach and practice the ministry of deliverance?
Satan and why are we in a war with him and
his evil spirits?
deliverance and how do I receive it?
this Invisible War coming to an end?
Evil Spirits work very hard at keeping undercover through
hiding behind secret places the Bible calls strongholds. One rarely
encounters the spirit directly. However, it is through discernment
(listening to the voice of the Lord Jesus) and through the
application of the truth of God’s Word that a demonic attachment in
our lives is recognized. Jesus said of the Devil in John 10:10,
The thief comes only to steal, and kill and destroy;… If there
is anything in our lives that is stealing, killing and destroying
then the Enemy of our Souls is at work. In the Book of James the 3rd
Chapter and the verses 11and 12 we read, “Does a fountain send
out from the same opening bother fresh and bitter water? Can a fig
tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Neither
can salt water produce fresh.” It is here we find a spiritual
principal. The kind of fruit is the indicator of the kind of root.
Where there is a rotten fruit, there’s a rotten root.
It is the truth that makes us free (John 8:32). The
answers to our questions concerning spiritual matters are only found
in God’s Word. “For the word of God is living and active and
sharper than any two-edged sword and piercing as far as the division
of soul and spirit, of both joint and marrow, and able to judge the
thoughts and intentions of the heart.” The Bible is much more
than a mere ancient book. It has supernatural power in The Invisible
War with the Powers of Darkness. In it you will find the truth that
can set you free. For every lie of the Enemy there is an answer in
the truth of the Scriptures. A Counseling Ministry that practices a
biblical world view will be the best place for you to get help. A
list of some of these wonderful ministries of help is provided for
you on the Need Help Page of this, The Invisible War Website.
There has always been those in church
history who taught and practiced the ministry of casting out demons.
Even in my Baptist tradition, one only has to talk to our hundreds
of missionaries around the world concerning these matters.
Most of our pastors have their "demon stories" from their ministry
encounters. I have heard many of them throughout the years as
it has come up in conversation. Just because we have not gone
"public" with these matters, one cannot preclude that the church
doesn't believe and practice deliverance. As I have stated in
this book, I do believe that since so many of our children are
now in spiritual bondage and spiritual jeopardy, the church can no
longer ignore getting them help. Because of the great
spiritual needs of this generation, our churches institutions must
begin to teach people how to be used of God to set the captives
There are as many as 40 different
names of the Devil in the Bible. It tells us in Isaiah 14 that
Satan was named Lucifer and led a (coup de' ta), a rebellion in the
heavens against the one true creator God. One third of all the
Angels followed Satan's rebellion. We know them as demons or
evil spirits. Satan is bitter and full of hate and anger aimed
at God. Through Jesus' sacrifice of His blood on Cavalry,
Satan has been eternally defeated
Man was created by God to love and worship God, to serve and
cooperate with God to bring His will on earth as it is in Heaven.
Through faith in Christ and His work for us on Calvary, we now can
not only be what we our creator fashioned us to be, but we can do
what He wants us to do (For it is God who is at work in you, both
to will and to work for His good pleasure, Phil. 2:13).
Satan opposes believers because we are God's children, His body, His
bride. We are the instruments through which God's will is done
on earth. He hates us because he hates our Heavenly Father who
There Jesus said in John Chapter 8
Verse 34: "Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin
is the slave of sin." Sin is not just a bad habit.
Sin has the power to enslave and ultimately destroy. The Bible
tells us that Jesus came to destroy the works of the Devil (I
John 3:8). He came to set the captives free. It was for
freedom that Christ set us free;...(Gal. 5:1). Deliverance is
simply the act of a loving Heavenly Father honoring His commitment
to us that if we confess our sin, that He would be faithful and just
to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness
(I John 1:9). Deliverance is getting rid of all the hindrances
in our lives that are keeping us from becoming like Christ.
Jesus is the deliverer. We must humble ourselves and ask Him
to remove anything that is not of Him in our hearts and lives.
Every stronghold of the Enemy in our lives is based on a lie that we
have believed instead of God's Word. Confess your sin of
believing the lie of the Enemy and receive in its place the truth of
God's Word and you can be set free (John 8:32).
The Word of God tells us in Rev.
20:10, "And the Devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake
of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are
also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever."
There is coming a day when the Invisible War with the forces of
darkness will come to a final end. It will be when Christ
comes to the earth to rule and reign as King of Kings and Lord of
Lords this battle with the forces of darkness will be over. It
is essential for us to understand that the victory in The Invisible
War with these Principalities and Powers of Darkness is already won
through our union in Christ Jesus and what He did for us on Calvary.
We do not fight these spiritual battles toward victory, we fight
from victory. Ask the Lord to come into your heart today.
Trust Him to save you from your sins. Receive Christ as your
Savior-Deliverer and Lord. Ask Him today to cleanse your heart
from everything that would keep you from God and His will in your
