Practical applications of deliverance. Our authority for deliverance comes from God, but we utterly depend on the Holy Spirit as we pray for others, to: recognise the person’s spiritual condition; know how to approach their need; and to understand the demonic realm, structure and strongholds in their life. First we must deal with the sin that opened the door for the demonic activity, before casting out demons. Our role is also to point people to Jesus, who will deliver them and set them free. We help them to face the truth, bringing acknowledgement, repentance and freedom.
When a person breaks God’s Law they give the devil access into their life. Learn about the type of strongholds and bondages we are likely to face during a deliverance session. Help the person know that Jesus has completely delivered and set them free from all their sins and transgressions, as well as the consequences of these things, at the Cross. To have faith in the victory of the Cross is central to their deliverance and redemption. The person being ministered to is walked through the steps to be taken to be set free!
The foundations of deliverance, from: why Jesus came; the power and authority he moved in; how he confronted the demonic spirit world; and to the victory through salvation, healing, and restoration of mankind.
Sexual sin, trauma, generational curses can all give the devil legal access into our lives. This causes people to live in fear, shame and bondage. We cover the consequences of these things in our lives, leading us to trust in Jesus. Then we outline principles that we need to put in place in our lives, to bring deliverance and freedom.
Negative experiences can happen to everyone, but some traumas can open us up to a demonic influence. From an early age to old age, we can all experience painful things that open us up to demonic control. When we allow God to take us back to that place, and remember it with Him there with us, he adjusts our reactions; this time we are inviting Jesus to come and heal us.
