…AN ACT NECESSARY TO SEE THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.
Deliverance… refers to the activity of cleansing a person of demons and evil spirits in order to address problems manifesting in their life as a result of the presence of said entities and the root causes of their authority to oppress the person. Let’s make something very clear from the start. Deliverance is not for non-believers, it is for those that have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. Now the legal rights given to these spiritual influences or demons can be broken from your life as a child of God. Adherents to this theological concept attribute physical, psychological spiritual and emotional problems that people suffer to the activities of the oppressing spirits following the example of Jesus Christ given in the gospel. Beloved family, I’ve mentioned many times in different post as you already know, that Spiritual Warfare is very real. As children of God, we MUST begin with the house of God first, by examining every part of our lives carefully and prayerfully to see if there’s any influence that is limiting our seeing, witnessing, or hindering our function in the body of Christ. Why begin with the house of God? Hosea 4:6; “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:” is a good place to start. Some tend to believe that just because we are Believers/Christians, that we are incapable of being influenced by demonic forces or spiritual influences…this is an error in our thinking and most welcome by the enemy, because then your guard is down, we become blinded and then there is no armor of defense and the enemy is having a banquet at our expense in our lives because we’re with lack of knowledge which is right there in the Word of God. Then it is as our Lord states; “But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” Matthew 6:23. And “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:5. Is therefore something we should consider and then we are no longer the blind leading the blind as children of God but walking in step with the Spirit. Amen. Family we’re only human granted, and we deal with things in areas of our lives that sometimes tend to weaken us, causes us to fall and at times wants to just give up…trust me I know. My life personally is nothing short of Jonah and The Prodigal Son, if there was a photo for either, it would be mine. My point is deliverance is a process of healing…coming together with those that are gifted by God with the “Gift of Discernment” that recognizes these influences and begin your healing process to get rid of these influences that appear to be interfering in one or more areas of your lives. Without it, we’re a people destroyed before entering the battle. We’ve all at one point have done some things we’re not too proud of, and times those things flash before our eyes in prayer or times of reflection, this is only the gentleness of the Spirit saying “Bring it to me…surrender it….I will forgive you and heal you.” Some of these I like to call unconfessed sins, and other times the enemy trying to bring up your past, which at those moments if I’ve surrendered them, I stand on God’s Word in that moment to fight those lies brought about by the enemy. “By his stripes we are healed.” Therefore my brothers and sisters, having said this, let our deliverance and healing begin this day that we may truly walk as children of light and continue in that great commission; “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Mark 16:15-17. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over you and protect you from ALL unseen hurt, harm and danger in Jesus name. Let us therefore press on in hope, faith and love and we advances forward from faith to faith and glory to glory. “He that has begun a good work in you will not stop until it is completed.” Amen.
REMEMBER!!! Go take a peek at the novel if you haven’t yet. “Battlefield of Angels” It’s a glimpse at spiritual warfare around us and rate this. Though fictional in content many of the events are realand a shadow of my life.
I do bealiver in excersize. I also.bealive in the bread of Christ, did you hear about that.I guess to make the bread of Christ would be to.fulfill your kneads to.serve god
Sorry for the delay but to answer your question, exorcism is used by the Catholic church, however believers/Christians has the authority given by Christ to cast out demons. And no, I haven’t heard about the making of the “bread of Christ” that is something new to me 🙂 Thanks for the like and God Bless You!
Yes I bealive in deamons, however I am not a Christian. And this is one of those controversial practises that can blur lines of morality and good judgement. Often these things are related to trauma, learnt behaviour and deeply ingrained lines of thinking. Thus chopping wood, cutting up meat and making bread are good ways to deal with traumatic difficulties. Such is open discussion among the right inlfuences. I understand to fill someones mind with lines of biblical poetics is indeed a valid way of dealing with such things also as it can be a valid distraction. This is a delicate matter as some people can indeed be quite dangorous in the wrong hands, if to themselves as well as anyone else.
I couldn’t agree with you more when it come to being a very delicate issue, however as a Believer speaking from personal experience in this area. You mention that you do believe in demons, therefore, you would also have to agree that that the psychological issue that traumatize many of individuals lies behind the curtains something spiritual attributing or influencing such patters of thinking and behavior, especially for those individuals unaware that “something else” may be at work in their lives that need to be address. Many of which that are rooted and passed on, others based on the lifestyle one engages in or traumatized by. However, the activities you’ve mentioned are constructive ways of distracting for the moment, but not necessarily healing, therefore suppressing the actions. Behind this grand facade of the physical realm lies a spiritual realm in action, but none the less somethings can be attributed to human actions and behavior, while others influences and must be approached with caution…Amen. Thank you so very much for your thoughts on this matter, I truly appreciate it sincerely. God bless.
Well I personally bealive that demons are mostly things that go on in the backround. Like people whom influence us, behaviour we have learnt of others, yhe undertones in everyday expression. Also I feel this comes to territorial effect such as war, causing pain and so on. I feel these are mostly what makes up the spiritual. I feel that which is traditionaly demonic such as horned beings with flames coming from there eyes and such are extremely unusual yet in one form or another do exist. That which is alien to us is best left alone for we are blind to how they could effect us. So yes however at extreme or unusual examples. I still feel most people would benefit better with open discussion, perhaps with people whom have served time and do the right thing now, counselling, solid work such as hacking up pigs, chopping wood etc
well perhaps the same could be said for repeated mantras
Well regardless of the argument where I say repeated words of jesus are potentially supressing too. I feel that with a freeish mind then moving on into other activity can help you put things behind you. I guess going to disneyland could be more fun than chopping wood although could be more frustrating wait for a ride or something. You could go through many layers of underlying causes and lines of influence. Its still the people with the problems that have to deal with them. Or get help with them. As its their behaviour thats effected
Yes god bless
