GOD's WORD, THE POWER OF DELIVERANCE PART 1

Posted on by Evangelist Joel Torres

Through the years God has used me in the area of what I call “Deliverance Ministry”, that’s praying for people who are being attacked by demonic forces.  The type of areas of attacks very… for example, unstable minds, bodily attacks, illness, occult activity, paranormal activity in the home etc.

What I want to do is share Biblical applications of God’s word over such attacks that people you may know or family members may be going through.   It’s only through God’s word which is the sword of and the power of the Holy Spirit  that deliverance comes, God’s word say’s “where the spirit of the Lord is, there is Freedom” nothing else can bring the healing and freedom that people seek like God’s word in their times of need.

Now before I get into sharing my experiences in this type of ministry I want to say that there are many out there that work in this type of ministry and may have some different approaches on how to cast out demons.   One thing I want to make perfectly clear is that I depend on a relationship with the Holy Spirit of God through Christ Jesus.     The Holy Spirit is our teacher, and counselor and he directs the process and order how the deliverance will go.   But one thing doesn’t change is the fact that God’s word is never ever left out of the equation in the process.    Sometimes the order may change where you may need to first cast out the demon and then apply the word; it’s the only thing that can destroy every stronghold and bondage of every kind.   

Also what I’m going to share and give to you is a merely a foundational scriptural structure that gives a Godly order in the process of deliverance using sound biblical principles through God’s word.   This is to give you a basic structure that can be changed at anytime guided by the Holy Spirit to fit the bondage and strongholds that need to be broken off a person.   As ministers of the gospel we have been call to equip the church to go and do good works of the gospel in the name of Christ Jesus.    The scripture template that I’m going to share in Part 2 of this series is something that God gave to me in a recent deliverance session to hand down to my son-in-law who was with me for this session and the purpose

 

for this, is so that he would be equipped to minister to those in need of deliverance when call to do so by God.    Today there are many households that are going through these types of attacks but many keep quite because of what others may say in unbelief or sadly what their church leaders may say and don’t want to get involved in such matters for whatever their reasons may be.   Many people depend on their church leaders to understand what they’re going through but sadly are discourage by their response to them, that they don’t have enough faith, or it’s just their imagination and there are no real such things.    

Now that may surprise a lot of you, that pastors and the leadership of churches would even say such things but unfortunately, many that have come to me have confirmed what I’ve just shared with you.    Many are told that they may need to seek outside professional help and that they are not equipped to handle such issues, boy is that sad!   

Now, don’t go out looking for such things and knocking on neighbors doors asking if there are demons in their homes.   I always allow God to bring those types of matters to me, like the bible says; there are seasons for everything that’s including deliverances.     Remember the story in the bible that there were a group of religious leaders that thought they go out and cast out a demon from a man that was from their village, and said to the demon “come out in the name of Paul’s God” and the demon answered, “Paul I know and Jesus I know but you I do not know” well what we read next, is that those religious leaders came running out the home beaten, bloodied and naked.   Always allow God to lead you in those kinds of circumstances and allow the Holy Spirit to prepare you so that you are not caught, ignorant of things that might cause you harm to your spiritual well being.     Now it’s important that I take the time to explain some things to you to properly set the stage and to have the right biblical principles according to God’s word.    I don’t want to just show you the scriptural template in Part 2 and think that all you need to do, is just speak out the word and the devil is just going come out screaming and pleading for mercy. 

Now it wouldn’t look so good that you’d be the one screaming for mercy running out your neighbor’s house beaten and naked…uhhhh, call me crazy…but I don’t think that would go over real big with the neighbor’s. ;)

Now I’m saying this because there are those who think like these religious leaders, because they’re well versed in scripture they think that qualifies them to go out and do a deliverance session on a person or home and end up do more damage than good.    Spend quality time with God and meditate on his word and scriptures that I have put down below and allow His Holy Spirit to give you revelation to get you spiritually fit, so Let’s look at couple of scriptures about revelation and spiritual fitness.

SPIRITUAL FITNESS:

1Timothy 4:7-8 (Amplified Bible)

“But refuse and avoid irreverent legends mere Grandmothers’ tales and silly myths, and express your disapproval of them. Train yourself toward godliness, keeping yourself spiritually fit”.

REVELATION:

Ephesians 1:17-23 (NIV Bible) – Paul writes:

 

17)I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

18) I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,

19) and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,

20) Which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,

21) Far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.

22) And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,

23) Which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way

 

Even now, take the time to meditate on these scriptures and allow the Holy Spirit to give you revelation of what you’re reading; don’t be in a rush to read on.   You know I could give you my take on what I see in these scriptures but I believe it’s important, that revelation should originate between you and God.   So when the time comes for you to minister to someone, it should be something that God birth out of your spirit not from what I or someone else has said.

Now let me tell why that’s so important.    Let’s recap what the demon said to the religious leaders trying to cast him out! He said “Paul I know and Jesus I know but you, I do not know” trust me the devil will know who you are and whether you’re coming at him with your own intellect or speaking from the spirit, heart and wisdom of God.     Now understand these religious leaders tried to cast this demon in the name of Paul’s God.    So first of all, the demon recognized that these leaders spoke as earthly intellectual religious men and second of all, the demon also recognized what dimension was backing them up, it was either an earthly or heavenly dimension.   So, which side do you think will cause a demon to tremble?   

I have other scriptures further down which I would also ask that you stop and meditate on those as well.   I can’t emphasize enough how important that is and hopefully you’ve done that with the ones above and if you have, you’ll understand the importance of what I have just said.   I’m also going to purposely wait to post Part 2 for a few days, I really want people that would like God to use them in this area, to be in prayer and meditate in God’s word with all that’s been shared.    Of course please don’t neglect your regular devotional time in the bible as well.   I really want you to give time allowing these verses to settle in your hearts before moving on to Part 2; Now Part 2 is ready and I’ll format it, both in Word and as a PDF file.

Now there are many who are going through such torment as we speak in your very own block or community that you live in and experiencing these demonic attacks in their homes.  When God brings these types of issues before me, then I know that the person (s) are ready to receive deliverance and are ready to except the help.

Now it is always God’s will for everyone to be delivered from these attacks and freed from the bondage of the enemy.    There are those who really don’t want to be prayed for, for various reasons and trust me, I have heard many reasons that don’t make sense.    Some aren’t being tormented but being enticed by its power and don’t really want to give up what they’re experiencing. 

For example, a church I once was attending the Pastor would have an extended time of worship and prayer after the initial service was over.  On this one particular evening the Pastors wife and another leaders spouse were in another room praying for people.   Suddenly I was called to the prayer room as the pastors wife explained to me, that as they were praying for a young lady they felt that something wasn’t right and asked if I would talk to her and pray for her.   So I spoke to the young lady and asked if she wouldn’t mind me praying over her and she was more than willing to allow me to do that.   When I prayed over her, I sensed that there was a demonic presence on her, so I commanded that if there were any unclean spirit on her to manifest it’s self and as soon as I had made that command, the girl suddenly arched her back over the back of the chair and her neck jerked back quickly, then here eye’s rolled completely back until you could only see the white of her eye’s, then her neck imploded like a frog’s neck would do when croaking.  

So when there was evidence of a demonic spirit, I commanded it to leave but I discerned right away that the girl was resisting at the same time.  I then told the demon to be still and the girl sat back up on the chair and was normal again.  I then told her if was she aware of a demonic spirit attached to her, and she said yes that she was aware of it but quickly told me that the spirit is a good spirit and said that her family believe there other spirits that help people giving them power to having an empowered life.   Now if that wasn’t something her whole family attended the mother church of this denomination regularly.  

So I told the girl that it would be best that she and her friend leave our church and not return because we don’t approve of such beliefs, and feel that they are contrary of God’s word and that if she would return, then I would be force to cast out that demon forever, She didn’t want that and left quietly.   There are many Christians attending church who are just like this young lady and her family.   I’ve prayed for many in the pass ignorant in these things and find themselves sooner or later, undergoing demonic attacks because of believing in the false enticing power of the enemy.    The pastor jokingly said to me “Joel we’ll need to get you a pager that glows red like the Bat phone (Batman) that would say 911 devil” the funny thing was… about that time, I’ve could have probably used one, I was really busy in that area of ministry.   I could go on with stories like that but I’ll save that for a book I’ll write in the future.

Then, there are those that don’t want to change their ways of a sinful lifestyle or give up habits that opens up doors that allows the enemy to atacking their physical and mental well being.   

There are many that don’t understand as well… that demonic spirits can attach themselves to them because of the type of people they associate with or environments they place themselves in.    Also curses that other people may put on them or a type of occulted activity such as seeing physic palm readers or having their future read through tarot cards.    There are also generational curses of pass sins or family and illnesses passed down through generations of the family line and have never been broken.   Those types of things will open doorways for demonic attacks and continue onto the next generation and could attach themselves to their spouses and children.

Now I’m not trying to scare anyone but these are things that we should not to be ignorant of.   Remember we are more than conquers in Christ, so what I want to do is equip you and give you God’s word which is the sword of the Spirit, and God says that His word is alive and active and like a double edge sword.

 

HEBREWS 4:12 (Amplified Bible)

4) “For the Word of God speaks is alive and full of power making it active, operative, energizing, and effective; it is sharper that any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart”.

There is a lot of nuggets in this verse take the time as the bible would say Sela’ (Meditate).

1.     Reconciliation

2.     Justification

3.     The Spiritual Blessing of Christ

4.     God Has a Plan For You

5.     Keys to The Kingdom, and the Full Armor of God

6.     Cleansing The Home and Praying over those who dwell in it

Jesus told his disciples that only through prayer and fasting we have power over the enemy of darkness.   It’s important that when you are going to do something like this, be sure that you at least fast a minimum of 3 to 5 days so that you are spiritually sound and in sync with the Holy Spirit of God to receiving revelation and discernment, showing you as to the series of steps He wants you to take leading to a successful outcome.   Let God be in control, again, have His word settled in your heart.    

When fasting, expect God to speak into your spirit go into the fast expecting him to give you divine direction, He’s not going to leave you out there on your own.  This spiritual template that God has given will help you and others to help bring wholeness, healing and deliverance through the power of God’s word to those around you.   The template will have all the scriptures and verses in the order of the six key biblical topics that you see above.

Now during your fasting and as your reading these scriptures get them into your spirit, so when the time comes you’re not just reading them mentally intellectually but speaking them through the very core of the heart of your spirit.  God’s word says in 1 Cor. 4:20 “For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of Power”.  

So, let’s re-enforce what God says about his promises through the following scriptures below:

 

God’s Word Is Settled in Heaven

 PSALM 119: 89 – (Amplified Bible)

“Forever O Lord, your word is settled in heaven [stands firm as the heavens]”.

 

ISAIAH 55:11

“So is my word that goes out from my mouth; It will not return to me void (empty), but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it”.

 

ISAIAH 45:23

“By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all righteousness (Integrity) a word that will not be revoked”…

God even went so far as to saying, that His word was sworn through himself!

God made promises which He is committed to fulfill through Covenant. God’s word is settled in heaven!

 

JEREMAIAH 1:11-12 (Amplified Bible)

“Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Jeremiah, what do you see? And I said, I see a branch or shoot of an almond tree [the emblem of alertness and activity, blossoming in late winter]”.

“Then said the Lord to me, you have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it”.

God’s word attacks those circumstances that are contrary to His will and he’s watching over it himself to guaranteeing it performs to fulfilling what is promised.

 

2 CORINTHIANS 1:20

“No matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” (So be it) is spoken by us to the glory of God”.

I also want to mention that it’s always good to have one or two other people with you when ministering in this area.    Those that you ask to join you should be on the same level of faith and spiritual maturity as you are.   I’ve always had someone with me when doing this because I believe that others have gifts that God can use, you may need to be the one focusing on the application of prayer in the various rooms of a home while someone else can come behind you and anoint the doorways as you proclaim each environment Holy Ground and dedicated to the Lord.    A third person can be in constant payer over each place your group sets foot in and prayer of protection over the occupants of the home who will also be accompany you through your walk through of the home.  

The same principle applies, if you’re just ministering over one person, having people with the same level of faith and belief system as you do and as well a small group.  

As I said each person on the team God can use, what one may miss the other can catch something that needs to be covered or even scripturally read that may come to mind, as well prophetic utterance from someone of the team that will expose the scheme of the enemy to bring to light to be dealt with.    Remember God is a God of order and not confusion, I’m saying this because people that are with you all need to understand the term “Team player” Jesus had his own team known as his disciples, so if Jesus had a team then we should too.   Everyone is on an even playing field, now like any team there’s a team leader,  there’s a saying that I and other leaders have used from time to time, “Act like an owner but don’t take ownership” that goes for everyone on the team.

It’s important to have strong people skills, a real people person, this is very important because more than likely most people that you’re going to minister too, may not be familiar with you and may be apprehensive as to the type of process you’re going to take them through.    The enemy will fill them with all kinds of ideas to bring doubt and fear and that you’re going to take them, though some kind of scary ritual.   You need to ease their minds very quickly to tear down those walls of resistance and fear the enemy would try to instill in them to discourage them from their deliverance.

Let me give you an example of a couple that I, my son-in-law and friend of his ministered to.  When we arrived at the home the enemy had already put in the couples mind, that we were going to take them through some kind wired ritual and that more harm would be done if they allowed us to minister to them.    You see, for this couple the demon had already physically materialize in front of them and would speak to them to instill fear, now this was an extreme case.   The demon tried to give a false warning about me.   But because I had been fasting along with the others, God had already fore warned me what the enemy was doing and saying, so I knew that I would need to ease their minds as quickly as possible. 

Now the one thing that helped was the fact that my son-in-law’s friend who accompanied us was a mutual co-worker of the man of the house.  So it’s important to have someone that knows the persons you’re going to minister to, if at all possible why? Because there will be a trust factor that will help bring the stress level and anxiety levels down unless the persons are already familiar with you, then there won’t be a problem.   

Also you should only have just the right amount of people needed for the immediate needs and each should have an actual function in the whole process. You don’t need an army of people and the reason being, that could be used as a distraction that the enemy may try to use against you why, you want to use Godly wisdom the number of people you bring to avoid those who are merely only there out of curiosity, and aren’t spiritually qualified to be there.   So imagine the enemy jumping on that person and there you are, with someone freaking out and now the enemy just caused a distraction, now you have to deal with something that could have been avoided altogether.    The persons your trying to minister too are now fearful, and may want to cancel the whole session altogether.

This is why we must prepare ourselves spiritually and those that are with you also need to be spiritually prepared, so that Godly wisdom is evident by those who are being minister too.

Let’s talk about a couple of things:

Angels, ask God to send Warring Angels with binding chains and dispatch them ahead of you and bind every unclean spirit in the home and cast these spirits down to the abyss where they belong.  Use everything that heaven has to offer.

Elements needed to administer during the process of the deliverance session

Anointing Oil, is a symbolic spiritual representation of the purity and power of the Holy Spirit, it can be used to anoint a person and doorways of homes etc.    You can use olive oil for this. It’s important to pray over it and ask God to sanctify and bless it.

Exodus 29:7

"Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him."

Exodus 40:9

 "You shall take anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and shall consecrate it and all its furniture, and it shall become holy."

 

Then there’s Holy Water, now some Christians don’t use holy water often, but I would recommend it and this is why, in the pass I’ve never really used it until now, because the Lord reveled to me the day that Christ was pierced on his side blood and water flowed which took up all our transgressions and sealed it with a covenant of redemption.  Water is also used for baptism which is a symbolic representation of spiritual cleansing

The Old Testament mentions the use of water in cleansing a home, we find that in 

LEVITICUS 14:49-53

"And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop: And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water: And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times: And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet: But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open fields, and make an atonement for the house: and it shall be clean."

 

There is nothing greater than the blood of Christ that’s represented through these types of spiritual Symbolic elements that the enemy is reminded of his defeat and the resurrection power that exerted Christ from death.

ROMANS 4:21

21)  “He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification”

EPHESIANS 1:6

6) “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus”

 The Holy Water reminds the devil that he has no power or authority to hold anyone in bondage.   So when you sprinkle the Holy Water on the person and or room it is covered by the blood of Christ and that is what the enemy sees.

 

Sprinkling of Holy Water:

·        Persons

·        Garage

·        Closets

·        Restrooms

·         Shower stalls

·        Over children’s toys

·        Pets, including the areas they sleep

 

One other important thing before I go on, if a woman is pregnant be sure to anoint the womb with the anointing oil as well sprinkle the Holy Water over it and ask the Lord that it be protected and not go under any stress what so ever and that it be protected, covered by the blood of Christ in Jesus name.

 

These are just things to know and think about, as I said, God is a God of order not confusion! Remember this one thing, it is through God’s word that will set these people free not what you think should be said.   The moment you take it upon yourself to take ownership of the matter, you’re going to fail and have a real fight on your hands that you might not be ready for.

 

A few things to recap on and things to follow through with:

1.     Never minister alone, always have others with you and keep the group small so it doesn’t over whelm the person (s) whom you’re ministering to.  Unless you feel otherwise necessary and that God has put that in your heart, then do so.

2.     Be sure that you and the others fast a minimum of 3 to 5 days

3.      Be sure that you and the team gather together prior to your destination and discuss the order of things.

4.     Choose who among you on the team will be the key speaker to representing the group and tasks each will be performing.

5.      Ask God to consecrate each of you with the blood of Christ repent of all sins so that you’re in right standing with God and a covering of protection.  Also pray a covering over your personal families that no weapon forge can come against them and are covered under the blood of Christ, the purpose of this, is so that the enemy is rendered powerless of retaliation against you and your family

6.     Pray over the elements such as the anointing oil and Holy water for God to sanctify it and bless it and anoint each member of the team

7.     Ask the Lord to give you discernment regarding spiritual doorways and their locations in the house that the enemy has entered from.

8.     Be a team player, don’t take ownership of the team…”my way or the highway attitude! Don’t give the enemy a foot hold for division

9.     Be confident that God is with you and don’t be surprised by anything the enemy would do if he becomes confrontational, remember you have the word that demolishes every stronghold.

10.   When arriving at the home, announce to the enemy that you come in the name of Christ Jesus the Great I ‘am in whom you serve and that you’re serving him his eviction notice and no longer welcome in the home or facility etc. 

11.  Command the demonic presence to be still and not disturb you while your ministering to the occupants of the home

12. Introduce yourself and the team and find an area where all can sit to begin the session, open up with prayer however the Lord leads and anoint each member of the home and sprinkle Holy Water over them as well

13.  Dispatch warring Angels with binding chains to begin binding every unclean spirit in the house casting them to the abyss where they belong

14.    Apply the anointing oil over all doorways of the home on both sides of door jam and sprinkle Holy Water as well.

15. Pray around the exterior of the house sprinkling Holy water around the property and dedicate it to the Lord and claim it as holy ground and that nothing unholy can pass the property line

I believe that’s good for now, I’ll get into other details in Part 2 when I present the scriptural template as we go through each topic to ensure we don’t miss anything.  What I would like to do as well after Part 2 has been presented I will try to put together a video interview with the couple as to the results of the biblical structure followed like the one duplicated, you’ll receive.  I think it would be great to hear their testimony how they were set free from the word of God and share their experience with you.   I’ll try to set that up with them in the near future, well this concludes Part 1 please take the time for the next few days before I post Part 2 and allow God to minister to you of everything that has been shared.  

 

Now when I and my son-in-law and his friend worked as a team the couple could see it and they felt at ease.   I gave my guys each a specific task so that there would be order in the whole process when ministering to the couple.    Why is this so important! Because those who are being ministered to need to see God’s in control right from the get go.   

It’s been… I believe about six months and the couple is going to church and there has been no demonic disturbance in their home and the Lord’s peace now resides there.   

I believe that’s good for now, I’ll get into other details in Part 2 when I present the scriptural template as we go through each topic to ensure we don’t miss anything.  What I would like to do as well after Part 2 has been presented I will try to put together a video interview with the couple as to the results of the biblical structure followed like the one duplicated, you’ll receive.  I think it would be great to hear their testimony how they were set free from the word of God and share their experience with you.   I’ll try to set that up with them in the near future, well this concludes Part 1 please take the time for the next few days before I post Part 2 and allow God to minister to you of everything that has been shared.  

As always, thank you for taking the time to read my post, it’s very much appreciated.  I hope it has been a blessing to you and thank you for your support please share this with others.
