This is about action. But first prep by identifying
The backstory of this possession audio clip is from Derek Prince's compelling book They Shall Expel Demons. Though Derek suffers a little from finding demons under every rock, this book is a rare, powerful practical supplement to the Bible for dealing with them. His clear thinking and real-life examples will compel a person to update their theology!
Chasing Out the Devil
Discernment is needed to distinguish between natural (e.g., "the flesh") or genuine demonic influence. As the saying goes: "You crucify the flesh and cast out demons; you don't cast out the flesh and crucify demons!" We don't want to blame every problem on them, yet we want to be on the offensive towards them. There's no way to have Spirit-led insight unless The Voice of God is operating prophetically.
How Can I Expel a Demon?
Obviously for serious cases, team with professionals. However, many Christians are not aware of their enormous authority simple by being Christian. One must be fully submitted to Christ's (by repentance, forgiveness, praise, etc.); then simply speak to the situation, exercising your authority in faith—as Christ.
- No Religious Circus. The demons are not impressed by a show of theological costumesonly by the presence of Jesus in you.
- Deliverance is for the Desperate. Be willing to lose some dignity, if necessary.
- False Thinking. "If I leave demons alone, they will leave me alone."
- The Battle. Angels, both good and bad, are bodiless spirits that battle using their
wills. We win not by asserting strength, but surrendering to God.
- Celebrate Victory. Satan cowers when we worship God with praise, music, joy, etc.
God Has the Last Word
Go beyond the attacks of the enemy, for they are mere smokescreens to My abundant, anointed flow. The devil's power is only fueled by your doubts, how much you choose to believe the mirage of a lie he puts before you.
So much of the battle between the kingdom of good and evil takes place in the mind. But it is there where it stands its only chance for victory as the devil is a defeated foe. Giving the devil place in your thoughts leads you only to lies and destruction.
So often you marvel at My grace and deliverance because you have already been expecting the worst. Only then do you know the joy of believing, but I tell you that you can have joy and peace now if you believe the words of My truth.
Why wait and be crushed under the oppressive weight of anxiety
and fear? When you begin to know and believe who I AM, you will know that
you are only in the world and not of it. Therefore, as citizens of Heaven,
heirs to the throne, people of a faithful inheritance, covenant peopleyou
are entitled to glory.
