IS SELF-DELIVERANCE POSSIBLE? YES! And it is a big YES! My personal belief or opinion is self-deliverance is more effective, lasting and powerful than someone else is doing the deliverance. Why? Because you are taking the full initiative in complete desperation, sincerity and faith to ask and trust God to set you free. This is more powerful than you are relying on someone else’s faith and performance. Over the years I have learned that many individuals who are passive and asking my help for deliverance but neglect and ignored to do their part whether were not delivered or lost their freedom after a while because they relied only on my faith and anointing.
However, the individuals that I only guided and taught how to be delivered and they themselves do the work got their freedom and remained free. And let’s face it, some individuals they only want attention or a quick fix without doing their part or many don’t even want to be delivered even though they say they do. It is difficult to understand but some people they prefer to live with their demons because of their disillusionment and pride. And the enemy tries to use those to steal my time from God, my family and the calling God has placed in my life.
- GOD WANTS TO SET YOU FREE!
- IT IS HIS WILL FOR YOU TO BE DELIVERED FROM THE POWER OF THE DEVIL. So, when you pray for deliverance know that you are praying according to God’s will and He is on your side.
- JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOUR FREEDOM.
- YOU HAVE AUTHORITY IN JESUS CHRIST!
- These signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” Mark 16:17,18
WHAT ARE DEMONS?
Demons are fallen angels who followed Satan and rebelled with him against God. They are evil/ impure spirits without bodies. Therefore, demons can operate more effectively by using and influencing people.
DEMON POSSESSED OR OPPRESSED?
There is only one word for demonic indwelling: daimonizomai in Greek means demonized, have demons.
Through many experiences I have learned that God’s people can be under the oppression of a demonic power can even lead to a possession if they choose to entertain and encounter evil. This is a very sensitive subject that goes all the way to the question “Can a person loses their salvation?” or “Maybe the person was not saved the start with?” I am not in any fashion interested to get into this debate. But my personal experiences with demonized people even in the church made me ask these questions?
We see the first mention of a demon in the scripture in 1 Samuel 16:14
“Holy Spirit of the LORD had departed from Saul, and evil spirit from the LORD tormented him.” I just need to intersect here that the evil spirit was not from the LORD but with his permission just as in Book of Job, God gave permission to Satan for Job to be tested.
Can a Christian be demon-possessed?
I have to answer this question in several ways.
- However, I have seen the demonic manifestations that were extremely violent and radical that made me question that if the saving knowledge of Christ was true in the person’s life. I have done deliverance on individuals that grew up in Christian homes and profess to be Christians but never had a personal relationship with Jesus or heard from the Holy Spirit. Almost in every deliverance, I ask the individuals confession of faith declaring Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior. There were individuals that couldn’t declare their faith, because the moment they tried, demonic manifestations took place. There are many signs and symptoms that Holy Spirit reveals the truth. I believe we need to study each case differently.
Once, a young girl who was a pastor’s daughter who grew up in a Christian home was manifested a spirit of Python later confessed that she was living on her parents’ faith and didn’t know Christ. Whenever believers praised or prayed in tongues, she would get extremely uneasy and finally at a powerful prayer meeting she manifested many demons.
- A saved person can be so much under the influence of demonic powers just being under the influence of alcohol. If there is a weakness and or an open door in that person’s life demonic influence can be as devastating as possession. For example, there are many Christians who live such worldly lifestyles that their moral standards are very much conformed to the world’s values instead of God’s values. I would suggest that is a very dangerous place.
Bible says that the friendship with the world is being an enemy towards God. James 4:4
Who is the enemy of God? The devil. I believe the moment anyone is conforming the ways of the world is opening a wide door to the demonic forces you whether call it possession or oppression.
- Can a Christian hear from the devil?
Yes. One of the biggest deceptions in the Body of Christ today that the Christians only hear from the Holy Spirit. What a lie?
In Matthew 16, Jesus asked a very important question: “Who do you say that I am?” Peter as usually jumped in and answered. He said, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.”
Jesus was well pleased with his answer and said, “Blessed are you Simon, son of Jonah. This was not revealed to you by man but by my Father in Heaven.” Wow! This is a very powerful statement coming from our LORD Jesus. He is confirming that Peter received a revelation directly from the Father. That is incredible. Peter heard the voice of God.
Yet in the same chapter little further Peter started rebuking Jesus after hearing he was going to suffer and die. Right in the same chapter after being praised by the LORD for hearing from the Father, Peter was rebuked and moreover called, Satan as Jesus said, “Get behind me Satan!”
Was Peter Satan? Of course not. But he was the mouthpiece of Satan.
In the same way if a believer in Christ, who confesses that Christ is the Messiah and LORD, can hear from the enemy. And the moment you hear from the devil, if you don’t keep your thoughts captive, you are allowing the enemy enter in through your thought pattern.
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5
A lot of Christians believing in the lies of the enemy about themselves, others, their lives and even God. Believing in the lies of the devil is empowering him in your life.
When the enemy tells you a lie, you must ask, “What my Heavenly Father is saying about this?”
During my meetings and conferences many people were set free from demonic bondages just by confessing, renouncing and repenting from the lies that they believed. They repented from making a pack/agreement with the enemy by believing in him rather than believing in God.
- Christians can have demonic bondages
While we argue on possessed and oppressed, many believers live their lives in depression, with suicidal thoughts, without joy, with addiction such as pornography, violent movies including vampire movie addiction and deliberately opening many doors to the enemy.
The most concerning part that demonic manifestations which were radical and violent are the easier ones to recognize. What if the demonic is so blended in the persons character and actions and not easily recognizable. There are many Jezebels, Ahabs, Judas, Absaloms, even Anti-Christ that I encounter in the ministry sometimes daily. Are these all possessed or oppressed? Who cares? They are under the influence of control of the devil and as damaging as any beast could be to the Body of Christ. This is all you need to know.
WHAT IS WARFARE?
Warfare is a demonic spiritual attack. It is a spiritual battle between the children of God and the dark forces of the devil. The moment you are pressured, stressed, having short fuse, depressed, feeling discouraged, empty, hateful, negative thoughts, lustful thoughs angry and bitter thoughts are flooding into your mind, you are under a spiritual attack called warfare. It is almost ridiculous how many churches accept that there is something called “Warfare” but deny that it is demonic. It is almost considered a natural mood swing without talking about the source of it. Warfare is a pure demonic attack. Yes, it can most definitely affect your mood swings and feelings too.
The moment you are asking, “Why am I feeling this way? What is the matter with me?” you are under a spiritual attack and that is warfare and it is demonic.
It is very saddening that the God’s people have so little knowledge about the warfare and they don’t know how to fight with it. Therefore, the warfare turning into depressions and suicides. Because the enemy is hunting God’s people off-guard.
“ Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:11-17
I am only going to reflect on the bolded parts of this powerful portion of the scripture.
- There are devil’s schemes (plans, will and assignment against you)
- There is a fight or even a wrestling in another version. We are wrestling with the supernatural. Can you grasp how serious this fight is? AND we are not taught how to fight.
- Our fight or problem is not with people. Our enemy is the devil and his army. And just like in an army, they have ranks, titles and assignments. Demons are not just going around and looking for anyone coming in their way. They have an assignment and a plan against you and your loved ones. It is crucial for you to understand to defeat the enemy and kick him out of your life.
There are spirits which are demons controlling and influencing those people to do the things they do against us to devastate us. Once you know which principality is ruling over that person you can bind and make that spirit ineffective. I will be sharing more about binding and losing based on the Word of God. It is very important to know how to bind any spirit against yourself, against your family, children, neighborhood, work and even your country.
- Because of the you need to put the FULL armor of God. It is not optional. It is mandatory because WHEN the evil comes NOT IF but when. So each of us as God’s children will go through a warfare. Why? Because it will strengthen us, increase our faith and draw us nearer to God if we fight the battle not in the flesh BUT in the spirit.
The battle is spiritual. Then how can we win a battle that is supernatural? How can our yelling, screaming, planning and fighting in the flesh is going to make us victorious in a spiritual battle? We cannot win the battle with our human strength or power. Understanding this changed my life and walk with Christ. It will change yours too if you learn to fight your battles with the supernatural power of God.
- Flaming arrows of the evil one! What are these arrows?
Lies that you believe about yourself, discouraging and negative thoughts, magnified failures, gossip and slander behind your back, accusations and blame games, betrayals, rejections, anger outbursts, nervous breakdowns, uncontrollable crying episodes, or numbness…… and much more
- You can win this battle with the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. God is giving you a divine weapon. You take it to your hand and if you know how to use it, you defeat your supernatural opponent or vicious enemy, your Goliath or Jezebel with that weapon. How amazing is that? But are you using it? Are you believing in it? Are you trained and disciplined to use your sword to slay your giants? Maybe the time has come for you to start winning not losing anymore.

3 THINGS YOU MUST KNOW BEFORE YOUR DELIVERANCE
- KNOW YOUR GOD
- KNOW YOURSELF/ YOUR IDENTITY
- KNOW YOUR ENEMY
- KNOW YOUR GOD
You must know your God to be able to trust Him, His love, His goodness, His Word, His promises and His power to deliver you. Without knowing your God, True Living Redeemer, it impossible for you to be delivered from any demonic oppression or possession.
True God, the Creator of the Universe and everything in it has a name. Children of God, Christians don’t worship the same God of any other religion. Our God has a name.
In Book of Exodus, Chapter 3, Moses asked God His name which was a very wise question.
God answered to Moses.
“God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: “I AM has sent me to you.” Exodus 3:14
God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, “The LORD, the God of your fathers – the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob – has sent me to you.’ This is MY NAME FOREVER, THE NAME YOU SHALL CALL ME FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.” Exodus 3:15
In Hebrew word for God is elohiym. But even for the false gods such as Baal, people used the word elohiym. This is the very reason the word starts with small letters. Because it is not a name. Just as anyone can call anything their god.
The word god is not making the Creator true God, His Name is. Don’t you want to be called by your name?
But when it came to the true God, He was calle El Elohiym Israel which is God of Israel. But this is still NOT the exact name of God that God told Moses as His Name. Instead He said, “I AM, THE LORD, GOD OF ABRAHAM, GOD OF ISAAC AND GOD OF JACOB.”
I AM: Now in Hebrew I AM is a name and comes from a word “hayah” which means Self-existed One or BE. Therfore, it is not as in English we are talking about I am as in a present tense. I AM means forever and ever.
LORD: LORD is not a word as in lord BUT a Name: Yehovah (also Yahweh) which is the national name for the God of Israel (or El Elohiym Israel)
When Jesus said in Book of John chapter 8 verse 58, “Before Abraham was I AM!” He was declaring that He was (and He is) the Yehovah (Yahweh).
Jews wanted to kill Him for this declaration. Because one of the ten commandments was/is “Do not use the Name They God in vain.” Even God’s own people were not using God’s Name out of fear. And now imagine Jesus declaring Himself as Yahweh.
At this point we must know that Jesus (Yehovah is Salvation) comes from the Hebrew bane Yehowshuwa which root word is Yehovah and comes from the root word hayah again means “Self-existed One, BE, I AM”
IS TRUE LIVING GOD YOUR GOD?
Jesus Christ came down to earth, God in human form to show us God’s love and redemption power for the entire mankind. He died on the cross for our sins and rose from the death on the third day. He is the Son of the Living God. Through His sonship we can be God’s children, sons and daughters.
There is no other way to heaven other than through Jesus. (John 14:6)
Anyone who invites Jesus into her/his heart becomes a child of God. (John 1:12, Galatians 3:26)
Triune God in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit
The LORD, God, Creator of everything is One in three persons.
God created us in His own image and we also have a body,
soul and spirit.
HOW DO YOU RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR?
If you want to receive Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and savior, pray the following prayer. (You can pray in your own words. The most important thing is that you truly believe when you pray.)
Dear Lord Jesus,
I believe that you are the Son of the Living God and only way to heaven. I believe that you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the death on the third day and you conquered the death. Please forgive my sins and be the Lord of my heart and life. Amen.
If you prayed this prayer you are a child of God and saved from eternal punishment which is hell. You belong to God and God’s family. I suggest that every time you go through a spiritual attack, you declare Jesus as your Lord and Savior and yourself as a child of God out loud.

There are so much more scriptures to exalt our God. But for now I am sharing these with you to start declaring and praising God with these to win your battles and live a victorious life.
- KNOW YOURSELF / YOUR IDENTITY
Knowing yourself/ our identity who you are in Christ is crucial for your deliverance. Once you are secure about your identity in Christ, that gives you power and authority to defeat Satan and his demons. No one can convince you about your identity. Many people live a miserable Christian live in misery and torment just because they don’t know or believe in their identity in Christ.
If you invited Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Savior here are the list of some of the attributes of your identity.
You are a child of God. 1 John 3:1,2, John 1:12, Galatians 3:26
You are a joint heir of God through Christ. Galatians 4:7

And more……. So much more….
- KNOW YOUR ENEMY
Satan, Lucifer, the devil and his demons
Lucifer, name meaning Light-bearer later called Satan (adversary, oppose, resister) and also the devil (slanderer and accuser) was a beautiful angel that was kicked out of heaven when he tried to exalt himself in the place of God and sit on His throne. He deceived many angels who followed him which are demons today. He is also called, “serpent”, “roaring lion”, “morning star” and other names that is in his character such as tempter or deceiver.
- He is vicious and merciless
To hate the devil, you need to understand and believe that he is the number one enemy of God. He is your and your family’s number one enemy. He is vicious and merciless. The Scripture describes him like a roaring lion, prowling around looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:7)
Once I saw a lion on an animal channel waiting quietly and patiently to attack a zebra. When he found the opportune time, he attacked the zebra from the back and devoured him viciously. The scene was so bloody that I couldn’t continue watching it. But I want you to get the idea.
- He is a liar
Jesus called the devil father of all lies. (John 8:44)
“There is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
You need to understand he is going to lie to you about everything about you to deceive you and steal your freedom, happiness, success and everything God has planned for your life. Ultimately, he wants to steal and destroy your life by bringing suicidal thoughts to your mind and speaking lies to you about your life.
- He is a supernatural being
Satan, the devil or the enemy is a supernatural being. His followers which are impure spirits, in other words demons are also supernatural beings. This is the very reason you cannot win a battle against Satan and his demons with your natural or carnal weapons.
“The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of this world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4
In Book of Daniel chapter 8 verse 25, part of the message God’s angel Gabriel is delivering to Daniel, he says, “He will not be destroyed by human power.” Many times, we try to fight warfare or spiritual attacks of the devil by our own human power and get defeated and discouraged. However, if we fight our battles with God’s supernatural power, we will have victory.
Satan who is also called the devil was one of the most beautiful and powerful angels in heaven. He was casted down from heaven because of his rebellion caused by his pride. (Isaiah 14:12-20, Luke 10:18, Revelation 12:7-12, Genesis 3:1-5,
- He is a creation NOT The Creator
There is only one Creator who is our God Yahweh, I AM, Yeshua Hamashia, Jesus Christ. The devil and all his armies of demons come together cannot stand against our God.
- Satan is an Imitator
Satan masquerades himself as an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14) One of the major craftiness of the devil is his ability to imitate and disguise. This is the very reason people without discernment can be easily deceived by the moves of the familiar spirits which are demons rather than the move of the Holy Spirit.
- Satan is a thief
The enemy of our soul Satan is described as a thief in the Bible.
“The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
The devil tries to steal your joy, your peace, happiness, success, calling, family, finances and every single blessing you can think of in your life.
He is also a murderer and is after your life and the life of your loved ones. Especially he injects his suicidal thoughts into people’s minds for a long time until they completely under his influence ready to end their lives. He is a destroyer. He wants to destroy you, your family, your live, your marriage, your finances, your reputation and every single inheritance you have from God.
- Satan hates you
You are created in God’s own image. (Genesis 1:27)
Because he hates God, he hates you and me too. Because we all are created in God’s image.
- The enemy has a voice
Many people think what is in their minds are their own thoughts. This is far from the truth. The devil can speak to you in your first person’s voice. This may be shocking to you but as I mentioned earlier he is an imitator. He is trying to imitate God. He is trying to imitate your own voice to deceive you.
On the day, I was planning my suicide, there was a voice in my head telling me, “Life is not worth living.” This voice sounded like my own voice. What do you think know whose voice it was?
Many Christians believe that the moment they receive Christ as their Lord and Savior they only hear from God. This is far from the truth.
Let me prove this to you through the Word of God.
Serpent spoke to Eve in the Garden of Eden. Genesis 3:1-5
The devil spoke to Jesus. Matthew 4
Jesus told Peter, “Get behind me Satan.” Peter wasn’t Satan, but he was Satan’s mouthpiece.
Satan incited David to number God’s army. 1 Chronicles 21:1
Is that voice telling you lies about yourself, your life, others and even lies about God? Are you making an agreement with Satan by believing in those lies?
Some of the common lies we hear people say:
No good thing ever happens to me.
If something good happens, right after something bad happens.
I am a reject.
No one loves me.
No one cares for me.
I am fat.
I am ugly.
I am stupid.
I am not good enough.
I always fail.
I am a failure.
God left me.
God is angry with me.
God hates me.
God doesn’t like me.
I have no gifts or talents.
I am not good at anything.
I am stuck in my circumstances.
I am hopeless.
There is no way out.
No one can help me.
And more……….. Does any of these sound familiar to you?
- The devil and his demons use people
Demons are invisible impure spirits that need bodies to operate. They need bodies in other words they need people to enter in and perform evil.
The word “spirit” in Hebrew is ruwach and in Greek is pneuma. Both words mean breath, wind, and breeze. This is the same for the spirit portion of the Holy Spirit. So there is one Holy Spirit and many impure or demonic spirits.
When we say Holy Spirit, we are referring God’s Spirit that is omnipotent and omnipresent.
Anyone can be full of the Holy Spirit or full of the demonic spirits.
Demonic spirits need a body to operate. When someone opens a door to them in many ways through sin, tragedies, evil practices, false religions and occult practices, rebellion, disobedience, through horror, violent, sexual movies, pornography, satanic pacts and or other ungodly practices, demons start residing in that person.
Pride itself an open door to demons. I have seen people who live an extremely religious, moral and decent life and full of demons just because of their pride. Lucifer was kicked out of heaven because of his pride and he is like a magnet to those who are prideful and arrogant. People usually addicted to look and act perfect (Pharisee spirit) judge others in their hearts are easy target to demonic.
- The Enemy Is a Bully and a intimidator
Man of God, Elijah, was bullied by the queen, Jezebel, and he was afraid. Don’t judge the man! We are nothing but flesh and blood. Everybody has a limit. I don’t care how spiritual you are, you have a limit. But the moment you stop listening to and obeying the voice of God, because of fear or tiredness or whatever, you are in a dangerous place.
- The enemy is the tempter (Matthew 4)
- Accuser (Revelation 12:10,11)
- Murderer (John 8:44)
And he has more wicked qualities in his personality.
7 STEPS TO GET PREPARED FOR YOUR SELF DELIVERANCE
- Proclaim God’s Word out loud
- Praise and Worship God
- Bind and loose
- Using the Blood of Jesus
- Cast out your fear
- Remove any hindering thoughts
- Proclaim God’s Word out loud
WHY OUT LOUD?
- Because the devil is called the prince of air! Ephesians 2:2
Therefore, we must be vocal with our declarations, praises and warfare prayers to defeat the enemy. This is the very reason the Word of God is called the Sword of the Spirit. (Ephesians 6:17) If you don’t take your sword out of its sheath, how can you use it? Taking your Bible in your hands and declaring out loud the Word of God is how you use your sword which is your divine weapon against the Satan and his armies.
David didn’t go before the Goliath silent. He won his battle before he threw the stone by the declaration came out loud from his mouth.
David said to the Palestine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the Name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies whom you have defied. This day, the LORD will deliver you into my hands and I will strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those who gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s and He will give all of you into our hands.”
Look at the young shepherd boy David’s faith.
Look at his declaration.
Look at the glorification and exaltation of His God Yahweh.
And, look at the hatred he has towards the enemy.
You must hate the devil for you to be delivered or help others to be delivered. To hate the devil, you need to know his nature.
Also, when Saul was tormented by an evil spirit, David played an anointed worship music and the evil spirit left Soul. (1 Samuel 16:14-23)
Gideon won a battle only with 300 men against a vast army just by shouting “For the LORD and Gideon.” (Judges 7:18, 20)
Walls of Jericho collapsed by Israelites shouting and blowing trumpets and marching around the city for seven days. (Joshua 6:1-20)
Jehoshaphat and his army won a battle against a vast army by singing and praising LORD and saying: “Give thanks to the LORD, for His love endures forever.” (2 Chronicles 20:20-23)
- Faith comes through hearing, hearing the Word of God. Romans 10:17
You need faith when you do self-deliverance. You must believe that God is on your side and you will be free. You need a faith boost. If you don’t read the Word out loud how can you hear the Word?

- Praise and worship God
Praise brings victory. When you exalt God, the devil shrinks and shrinks and becomes to nothing. The best way to start self-deliverance through praise and worship.

- Bind and Loose
“Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19
Binding and loosing is a powerful weapon to disarm the enemy and make him useless. Unfortunately, many Christians don’t make a use of this incredible powerful tool. When I found out how effective and powerful this divine weapon was, I started applying it and putting it into use in many situations.
For example, time to time I had to be in an environment that was incredible amount of strife, wickedness and hypocrisy. I had to be subject to a person who confessed to be a Christian but somehow way before me he had lost his connection with the Head. This person was working and functioning like a robot and had no senses or convictions. He had a faultfinding and sarcastic personality. He partnered with his helper to slander and persecute me. Even though he was in charge, he would only carry his helper’s comments and accusations. This is an Ahab personality. And you can guess the operating spirit in the other person. He was getting the nurturing and affection he needed from his helper. The bound the soul-tie between them was strong and demonic.
They both operated under the two principalities of Ahab and Jezebel combination. It always goes together. When there is an Ahab. There is a Jezebel. When there is a Jezebel, there is always an Ahab. Spirit behind Ahab is also carry a deaf and a dumb spirit (This is spiritual deafness and dumbness. The person can be super intelligent in regards to his IQ, but he is not spiritually discerned. You speak to them and get to nowhere. They don’t even answer or comment. They look disengaged and numb. You may explain things and never get heard. Because they are deaf spiritually and it creates numbness that they almost have no convictions of the Holy Spirit. They may live on the outside a self-righteous Christian life as was in this man’s example but they are on an automated pilot, has no senses or personal relationship.
Many women in the church have husbands like this one and are in deep depression and their voices are not being heard. They are alone and wondering what is the cause of their misery. How did love and affection leave their marriage? Because they have the depression, they think they are the problem. If they just know that the enemy first disarmed and pacified their husbands and victimized them afterwards so that they have no support system. Many times, I wished that their husbands came for deliverance instead of them.
Anyway, I started binding and losing in this Jezebel and Ahab principality in that situation. The result was amazing.
Once God revealed the principality that was ruling over them to me, I started putting the simple divine tool that Jesus has given me into practice. I started binding the spirit of Jezebel and spirit of Ahab and loosing God’s peace, protection, love and joy. The power of the darkness backed off. The result was the proof that the revelation of the principality was an exact demonic match. If you are going through something like this, you need to fight against the principality of the darkness not the people.
Over the years, I found out how powerful binding and loosing is. Jesus taught us how to bind and loose in two scriptures in the Book of Matthew.
“Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you lose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Matthew 18:18
How do we bind and loose?
- Bind the principality of darkness or the demonic! Loose what is of God from heaven.
- You can also bind the demons of the other persons to prevent their influence and harm to you. EXERCISE YOUR AUTHORITY IN CHRIST!
Examples to binding and loosing:
“Lord Jesus, according to your Word and promise I bind the enemy’s any violent display or any plans and assignments against me and my family and I loose freedom and peace in your name Jesus I pray. Amen
“I bind spirit of anger, frustration and strife and loose peace, patience and joy. I rebuked the enemy and declare the power of the Blood of Jesus over me and my family right now in Jesus Name. Amen.”
“I bind spirit of negative thinking and mind torment and I lose peace and joy in Jesus Name. I am covered by the Blood of Jesus. Amen.”
“I bind and cast out fear and anxiety right now and I loose joy and calmness In Jesus Name. I am under the Blood covering and protection of Jesus Christ. Amen.”
“I bind the demons of gossip and slander in this place right now and loose unity and love in Jesus Name. Amen.”
BINDING PRAYER BEFORE SELF DELIVERANCE:
Dear Lord Jesus,
According to your Word, I bind the interference of the enemy and any demonic forces with my deliverance, I bind demons of lies, deception, confusion, doublemindedness and any violent attack during and after my deliverance in Jesus name. I release your truth, Spirit of Truth, I release your freedom, I loose your deliverance and redemption in Jesus Christ Name. Amen. I cover myself and this time with the powerful Blood of Jesus. Amen.”
I have seen a video that a robber was entering a store to rob the place. He pulled his gun and told the lady behind the counter to give all the money in the register. She boldly told him, “I bind you Satan in the Name of Jesus. Leave my store right now in Jesus Name.” The thief immediately left the store. (I am not telling you to do the same. You have your own responsibility in your life to protect yourself and others to use what weapon you think you need to use to do that.)
My husband and I used to easily engage in arguments that resulted big fights. After I made up my mind that I was going to fight differently that I used to defeat the devil in my marriage, I started binding the spirit of strife, anger, division and quarrels and started loosing love, joy and peace into my marriage, I started seeing miraculous outcome. But I had to made up my mind that I was not going to ever answer or react to my husband the way I used to react but only through the powerful way of Jesus who taught me this. I am a living example today of this truth.
I have heard a testimony of a Christian woman whose husband was regularly beating her up. She started binding the demons behind her husband’s evil act. She said when her husband was walking towards her to hit her, she would start binding and the man would turn back and leave the room. (Again your situation may be different. I strongly suggest seek the truth, seek guidance of God in your situation. But I cannot emphasize more how powerful binding and loosing it.
When binding and loosing, you don’t have to yell or shout. You can bind and loose under your breath with a whisper. But still do it vocally. Because the prince of the air has to hear and to be stopped.
I also release confusion, blindness and torment over the enemy that he could not be in my presence without being tormented. In Book of Mark chapter five, demons asked Jesus if he was going to torment them.
We have an authority in Christ that we must start using it.
- Using the Blood of Jesus in prayer.
“They (Christians) overcome (defeat) the devil by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” Revelation 12:11
Blood of Jesus has tremendous power. Such as binding and loosing, many Christians don’t use the power of the Blood.
Every day, I cover myself, my family, my ministry team, board, friends and even followers with the Blood of Jesus.
There were many times when demonic manifestations took place and people became monstrous because of the strong demonic powers to a point they became extremely violent. But because of the power of the Blood of Jesus over me, never they could harm me. Even though there were times it became a physical & spiritual battle, they couldn’t hurt me. There were times demons from other people spoke to me and told me they could do this and that to me. I said, “I am under the Blood protection and covering of Jesus Christ and I am a child of the Living God. You cannot touch me.” They could back off as soon as I declared my position in Christ.
- Cast out your fear
“God did not give us spirit (demon because it is written with a small s) of fear, but power, love and sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
“Perfect love casts out fear.” 1 John 4:18
“There is no fear in love.” 1 John 4:18
What do you cast out? You cast our demons.
Receiving and trusting God’s perfect and unconditional love is an automatic result of freedom from fear. If you know someone loves you perfectly, you know that they will protect you and they have you best interest.
Coming from Islam and worshipping a false Muslim god almost two decades, I had a hard time accepting God’s love. I was not free from fear even I was a Christian. Because I still believed that God was out there to get me. Somehow I was believing I had to be punished for everything that I had done in my past. One day, God tenderly spoke to me that I didn’t know Him well enough and rejecting His love. He told me that I was believing in lies and deception of the devil. I was nullifying the power of the cross. I immediately repented from believing in lies about God and received His love and was set free from fear.
One of the biggest weapons the devil uses against us is fear. Fear is paralyzing. Fear is tormenting. There is no peace where there is fear. There is no joy where there is fear. Fear could get you stuck and keep you in the same place and waste your years.
The opposite of fear is faith. Faith comes through the hearing the Word of God. Therefore, you need to exercise the declaration of the Scriptures and praising God out loud as I taught you earlier.
Many people are afraid of self-deliverance or deliverance performed by a minister with the thought that what if they manifest or shriek or they would be embarrassed or get hurt. They think what if something goes out of control.
When I shared self-deliverance guide on social media, a lot of people wrote to me that the steps I was teaching them were working but because of fear entered their hearts during their deliverance, they got scared and didn’t continue and couldn’t get set free.
I want to help you to get rid of the fear of self-deliverance.
- You need to understand and believe the following:
God loves you and wants to set you free. Then your deliverance is God’s will. Galatians 5:1
- Jesus died on the cross for your freedom. Galatians 5:1
- If you want freedom, you will have freedom. Matthew 6:9-11
“Which of you, if your son or daughter asks for a bread, you give him/her a stone or if he asks for a fish, you give him/her a snake. If you, then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!”
As I taught you before you can bind the enemy from any violent manifestation and command him or them to leave quietly.
- I bind you devil in the Name of Jesus, you will leave peacefully and quietly with your demons in Jesus Name. I am under the Blood covering of Jesus; you cannot touch me. Amen.
- God is merciful. Do you believe that you will be doing self-deliverance to kick the enemy out of your life and he will hand you over to Satan a or his demons? NO! He is on your side. Because the devil is His enemy. But you must trust Him fully.
First you need to know there are 3 types of fear:
a-) Fear from evil / demons
Every fear that is not fear of God is demonic.
“Fear of demons are from demons.” Corrie Ten Boom
This fear comes from demons. This fear can be any type of fear including fear of the demonic.
Now the list is long:
Fear of accidents
Fear of poverty
Fear of dying alone
Fear of sickness
Fear of abandonment
Fear of Rejection
Fear of Failure
Fear of people
Fear of terror
Fear of death
Fear of dark
Fear of close spaces
Fear of losing a job
And more….. These are all demonic fear that comes from the devil and not trusting God.
b-) Fear that comes from not being right with God.
This type of fear is very close to the one before. Not being right with God opens a door to the enemy.
I know a young girl that was extremely fearful. She was living a double life (she was only attracted to married men as she confessed and tried to wreck their marriages). She wrecked her best friend’s marriage and many married and older men in the ministry were seduced by her. She was living in constant fear of being exposed. Later, when it was exposed and she confessed that she was always fearful that God would one day reveal what she was doing in secret. Even the male leadership was under her demonic spell and were secretly in love with her. These were all married men. But the curse and misery that came upon them were undeniable. Their lives, marriages and children have suffered greatly.
The Wicked live in fear.
“The wicked flee though no one pursues them, but righteous are as bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1
If you fear people, you need to ask yourself if there is anything in you that you that not right with God.
Especially people who have rebellious heart fear and despise authority.
Once someone prophesied over me that, the devil was afraid of me. Immediately, Holy Spirit bore a witness in my heart. Later many times demons spoke through the people during their deliverance that they were afraid of me. That has been an evidence of the demonic possession or oppression on an individual if they said, they feared me. You need to understand that also demons can oppress an individual with that kind of fear.
c-) Fear of God
This is the only scriptural fear any of us should have. This fear is not like in Islam that we should dread and terrified of our God. But it is a healthy fear of God that if we do not live a life that pleases Him, we must face some consequences that would not be pleasant.
- Remove any hindering spirits
Hindering Spirits Will Try to Stop Your Deliverance!
- Lies and Deception
Lies and Deception is one of the major hindrances of the deliverance and usually is the first demons to cast out.
I was ministering deliverance to a lady who had many demons. After a while getting nowhere, I stopped which I usually do if the deliverance is taking long and started praying. I said, “Holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth please reveal to me what is hindering her deliverance. In Jesus Name I ask. Amen.” As soon as I prayed, it was revealed that she was a victim of a Satanic ceremony at age three and forced to drink human blood. But this was not what was hindering her deliverance.
She believed because she was part of such Satanic ritual, there was no hope for her. That was the lies and deception. Because there is always hope in Christ no matter how radical the Satanic involvement or encounter, or how terrible the past sins that were committed, there is always hope. What the enemy wants to do is that to tell you there is no hope for you. If you believe you cannot be delivered, you cannot be delivered.
Through many experiences, I have learned that when performing deliverance on a homosexual person, the first demon needs to be cast out is not homosexuality. It is lies and deception. Because many believes they are born that way and God created them like that. You need to remove the demons of lies and deception to expel the demons of perversion.
NO ONE can exercise deliverance against a person’s will.
I had a lady came to the altar at once of my meetings and ordered me; “Do your thing. I guess I need deliverance.” She said. I simply walked away.
Another woman came to the altar and asked for a prayer for deliverance. I asked if she believed she could be delivered. She said “Maybe” She had no faith that Jesus could deliver her. First we prayed for faith and read a few scriptures. Then I asked if she believed she could get delivered. She had no hesitation that she could and she was set free in moments.
Denial of the need of deliverance is a hindrance. There were some people came asked for prayers were very surface and casual. They were not aware of the seriousness of their captivity.
One young girl who has many abortions had a problem from confessing as a murder. She couldn’t get delivered until she completely broke down under the conviction of the Holy Spirit and confessed and repented from murder. I am not being judgmental here. Before accepting Lord Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I had two abortions. I carried guilt and shame even during my Christian walk until one day I had to call it as is “murder” repent. I immediately received forgiveness and was set free from guilt and shame.
Another lady who was addicted to masturbation could not confess her sin of masturbation. She could not accept it as a sin. I told her there was nothing I could do for her freedom.
If you want to stay dignified and your pride means more to you than your freedom, you can’t be delivered. Humbling yourself before the Lord brings so much redemption while holding onto your pride empowers the Satan and his demons.
Doublemindedness is another serious hindrance that can prevent person’s freedom.
YOU MUST SETTLE THESE QUESTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND THE LORD
Can Jesus deliver me?
Is this God’s will for me to be free?
Does God want me to be free?
Can I be truly set free after all these sins, abuse, demonic encounters and even if sold my soul to the devil? Is deliverance possible for me?
Is this that easy?
Is this happening or we are just going along with this ritual?
Is my deliverance taking place?
Is this deliverance for me?
What if the enemy hurts me?
What if the devil throws me on the floor and foams start coming from my mouth and everyone will see me like that?
Will it be embarrassing that I will look like a mess?
What if I don’t have enough faith for this deliverance?
I have so many sins in my life, I am not worthy of this. This can backfire on me?
YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS TO SETTLE ALL THE ABOVE QUESTIONS AND DOUBT FOR YOU!
IT IS FINISHED!
JESUS MADE IT EASY. HE MADE A WAY.
In Book of Mark Chapter 9, Jesus is addressing the hindrance before the deliverance.
They brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.
Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?”
“From childhood,” he answered. 22 “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”
The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”
He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer and fasting.” Mark 9:20-29
Prayer against the hindering spirits:
Dear Lord Jesus, I put myself under your authority. I declare that You are my Lord and Savior and You have given me authority to expel demons. You died on the cross to set me free from my sins, curses, chains, and sicknesses. Based on the authority You have given me, I bind all hindering spirits and command doubt, disbelief, lies and deceptions to leave me in Jesus name. I bind the voice of the enemy, and his lies in Jesus Christ name. I invite Holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth, and His freeing power into my life in Jesus name. Amen!
Forgiveness is a crucial part in your deliverance. If you are holding any grudges or have bitterness and resentment in your heart towards anyone, you cannot be free. Unforgiveness opens a door to the demonic. I suggest that you go before the LORD and ask Holy Spirit to reveal to you if there is anyone in your life or in your past that hurt you that you haven’t forgiven. If God shows you that maybe you can ask Him to give you the ability to forgive.
STEP BY STEP SELF-DELIVERANCE
- ASK AND SEEK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO REVEAL
Seeking means: “Desperately beg and inquire” – Ex: Parable of Persistent widow (see Luke 18:1); Seek first His kingdom (Matt. 6:33); If you seek me with all your heart you will find me (Jeremiah 29:13)
Ask the Holy Spirit through prayer.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Please search me and show me if there’s any impurity and demonic indwelling that that needs to be removed from me. I trust you Lord Jesus to please reveal it to me. Holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth, please expose any demonic influence, trespass or residence in me that is blocking God’s freedom and blessings in my life. I want to walk in your freedom and joy. In Your Name I pray, Amen.
Usually the Holy Spirit brings to your mind the very first thing right after the prayer. You don’t have to push hard and overthink. You will only get more confused. Once He reveals to you His truth, where the door was opened, now you can go to the next step to confess it.
- CONFESS YOUR SINS AND OPEN DOORS
After the Holy Spirit reveals what needs to be removed from your life, identify them one by one and confess them. This part is very important for your freedom. List things and actions in your life that opened doors to the demonic forces, such as: occult practices, false religions, divination, sorcery, fortune telling, rape, abuse, abandonment, suicide in the family, rejection, bitterness, anger, self-hatred, etc. Start confessing them one-by-one and be very honest about them. You are not confessing anything that God doesn’t already know. For example, if you are struggling with food addiction or overeating, call it by its name: Gluttony.
- Confession is a very big part of your deliverance. Denial of your condition will only hinder your freedom from demonic influences. Remember it takes humility to confess our sins and pride to hide or deny them.
“Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed (cured, made whole).”
- REPENTANCE /RENOUNCE
Repentance is KEY to deliverance. It takes humility to repent. After we identify and confess how we opened our doors to demonic influence, we need to take responsibility, repent, and renounce all of our wrongdoings, falsehoods, evil practices, basically anything and everything that we can remember that opened our doors to the demonic forces.
We cannot live the way that we live and continue to blame the devil for our dysfunctional lives, addictions, and bad behaviors. We need to humble ourselves and ask forgiveness for our sins that opened doors to the enemy. In this process, list everything that Holy Spirit brings to your mind, repent, and renounce.
Prayer of Repentance:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I humbly come before you. I acknowledge You as the ultimate authority in my life. You are my High priest. You are my Savior and Deliverer. You died on the cross and shed Your blood for my sins, bondages, and sicknesses. Today, I repent from all my sins, especially the ones that opened the doors to the enemy such as ________________________________________________ (List all tragic events such as abuse, abandonment, rejection, that took place in your life,sins or evil practices such as occult, false religions, idolatry, witchcraft/ sorcery, divination, spiritism, and similar practices). Please forgive me, Lord Jesus, for all these sins that I have committed. I renounce them. (Renounce your sins one-by-one, including any occult practices–witchcraft, involvement with sorcery, horoscopes, fortune telling, psychic readings, and false religions) AND BREAK ALL UNGODLY SOUL-TIES! Wash me clean with Your Precious Blood, Jesus. Amen.
“if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their captivity and say, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong and acted wickedly’; and if they turn back to you with all their heart and soul in the land of their captivity where they were taken, and pray toward the land you gave their ancestors, toward the city you have chosen and toward the temple I have built for your Name;” 2
“So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air or revival) may come from the presence of the Lord.”
“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”
- CAST OUT
You are ready to kick the enemy out of your life. This is an eviction you will command. You must be serious and bold when you do this. Now, command the enemy (impure, evil spirits) to leave you in Jesus’ name. Stand in your authority in Christ to expel them. In this process, name them one-by-one and command them to leave in Jesus Christ’s name. You need to know the devil is a vicious creature and he may try to resist your command. Be strong in your faith and mean what you say. The enemy cannot resist when someone full of faith is kicking him out from his residence in the name of Jesus. I have seen people in the past asking the devil politely, “please leave,” and nothing took place. But I have also seen desperate people coming against their enemy in the name of Jesus full of faith and standing firm. These people were gloriously delivered from the enemy.
Prayer for Casting Out:
I am a child of the living God. I am under the Blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is my Lord, my Savior, my Deliverer. In the name of Jesus, I command you ________________________ (demon of lies, demon of lust, pornography, rage, perversion, rebellion, Jezebel, Python, hostility, drugs, suicide, depression, oppression, etc.). Leave me immediately. I am a temple of the Holy Spirit. Get out in the Name of Jesus name. Amen.
You need to mean business. Have no fear whatsoever. You are a child of God. He will not allow any demon to play with you or torment you unless you doubt and let the fear enter in. If fear is entering in verbally cast out the fear.
In the process you may be releasing/letting go of those demons through crying, yawning, excessive sweating, burping, farting and simply releasing from your body in several different ways.
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Mark 16:17
- THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND PRAISE GOD
The devil hates the Blood of Jesus and he hates when we praise and worship God, because he wants to be worshipped. After your freedom start covering yourself and your household with the Blood of Jesus. Then start praising God and worship Him. The best way to keep the enemy out of your presence is to continuously praise and worship Jesus. Give all the credit and glory to Jesus for your freedom.
Can you lose your deliverance?
Yes, You have free will.
You can close a door to the devil, but in the same way you closed that door, it can be opened again.
You need to fill your house (your temple) with the Word of God, prayer, praise and worship. You cannot afford to leave your temple unoccupied.
You need to be full of God and His Holy Spirit.
““When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.””
AFTER YOU ARE SET FREE
Fill the empty place
- The Word of God
- Praise and Worship
DO NOT BELIEVE IN SATAN’S LIES. THE ENEMY WILL TELL YOU HE IS BACK IN OR HE WILL GET IN. THESE ARE ALL HIS SCHEMES AND TACTICS.
Proclaiming the Word of God!
Over the years I discovered the power of praying scriptures. Here are some major deliverance scriptures and prayers that I have chosen for you to declare and defeat the enemy.
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 NKJV
Prayer: I declare that no weapon or attack coming against me will be successful. All tragedies, calamities, and harm will be halted and stopped, bearing no fruition. Every judgement, false accusation, lie, curse or evil spoken against me will fall to the ground barren and empty in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen. For My righteousness is in Christ Jesus and this is my heritage.
“In righteousness, you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near you.” Isaiah 54:14 NIV
Prayer: I declare that I am established in the Righteousness of Jesus Christ. Because of His finished work on the cross, I will not be subject to fear anymore and oppression is now far away from me in Jesus Christ Name, Amen.
