A practical manual for Deliverance and. Inner Healing. Arlin Epperson. Columbia, Missouri USA. It is intended to be both a self-help guide to those seeking freedom from bondage and a manual for intercessors, pastors, and deliverance ministers who pray for those who are bound. After accepting Jesus Christ with all their heart, a person must be ready to remove from their life all that prevents the absolute working of the Holy Spirit. Deliverance is not about shouting!
First the cause of these bondages is discovered there are always more than one , then the individual renounces these ties, and cuts the ropes one at a time. Once these ropes or ties are all cut, the demon s then has nothing on which to continue their hold, and with much joy it must go when it is commanded to leave.
And the person is free to the glory of God. Many believers have not been taught, and are therefore unaware, that before they knew the Lord Jesus Christ they submitted their life—or areas of their life—to a different lordship. These believers have never been led to take back or renounce the authority given over to the enemy, who may still be maintaining his position—if only partially—and who will assert his right whenever possible, thereby oppressing the believer. Evil spirits can only inhabit where they have authority.
Satan always stands at our right hand ready to bind us, if we allow it. If we open our hedge, a serpent shall bite us Eccl. The order is very important. These suggest the Gospel of the Kingdom of God is reclaiming that which belongs to God, but has been temporarily occupied by the kingdom of darkness. Being in bondage to sin separates us from God. Bondage blinds us and keeps us from seeing and hearing the Word of God Is. Bondage causes us to lose what good news we hear see Mat.
In ministering to others we first loose them from darkness so they can spiritually see and hear, then we preach the Good News to them and then they bear fruit even 30, 60 and fold Matt Other reasons we should preach, teach, and minister include: 1. Casting out demons was the first sign mentioned for those who believe Mark Jesus cast out demons to show that the Kingdom of God is not in word only but in power see Mat.
God even knows the number of hairs on our head Luke He created us in love. From the very beginning of time, God desired for us to be healthy: spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Again, the order is important, as hereinafter revealed. God created Adam and Eve in perfect health, in His own likeness and image Gen. Sickness and disease did not exist in the Garden of Eden. From the very beginning of his creation, man was not created to 1 Healing of the Spirit — Introduction www.
In addition, from scripture, the attributes of the Kingdom of God versus those of the Kingdom of Darkness are made evident. He offers us mercy and grace. He is the God of all hope. He is our peace. He will never leave us nor forsake us. He is our deliverer Rom. The Kingdom of Darkness: Satan came, bringing disobedience, rebellion, sin, sickness, separation, pain, and torment. In the Kingdom of Darkness, there is only rejection, disillusionment, destruction, deceit, division, and despair.
We know that before man inhabited the earth Lucifer was expelled from heaven to the earth. On earth Satan continued his rebellion against God by tempting man to disobey God. Man sinned and became alienated from his Creator. Satan has a plan for your life, to steal, to kill, and to destroy. John He first wants to keep us from believing in God and Jesus, if he fails in this, then he wants to keep us from knowing Jesus Christ personally, and if that fails, he wants to keep us from serving Jesus Christ effectively.
The Kingdom of God and the kingdom of evil are engaged in fierce conflict one against the other for the souls, spirits and bodies of men and women on earth. But God, not willing to allow His creation to come under the influence of darkness, prepared a way of escape salvation for mankind and sent His own Son, Jesus to earth to show us the way. It is through the message of Jesus and His works on the cross giving us power over the darkness that we are redeemed and set free.
Authority Given Us by God. You must be totally convinced of the absolute victory of the completed work of Jesus, of His absolute victory over darkness. Rom Authority of darkness has been stripped by the finished work of Jesus on the cross.
The Scriptures tell us that Jesus has absolute authority in heaven and earth. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Eph 1 Healing of the Spirit — Introduction www. Col Jesus gave this power and authority to the 12, Matt to the 70 Luke ,19 and to us.
Mark The only authority the darkness has is what you or someone else gives them. Whatever you come into agreement with, you empower.
We are one with Christ. He is with us and in us. This principle of unification with Christ took place when you received salvation. You and Christ are one.
On top of that we all know from Scripture that there are two angels for every demon. The devil only has the power and authority we give him. All Jesus bought and paid for is my inheritance. I am united with Jesus, I have been crucified with Christ. I died with Him, I am buried with Him, I was raised with Him, I am seated with Him in the heavenlies far above all rule, all power, all authority, and above every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come.
Therefore I carry the authority of Christ. I have authority over sickness, over sin, over demons, and over the world. I am the salt of the earth.
I am the light of the world. I will displace the darkness, I have the full armor of God. I put on the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the helmet of salvation, the sandals of peace, I take up the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit, for the weapons of my warfare are not fleshly. They are divinely powerful to tear down the strongholds of darkness. I can do all things through Christ, because greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. Even so, God provides spiritual armor for our protection Eph.
These open doors have many causes; the most common causes are listed below, although numerous ones will be enumerated upon throughout this body of work. Unforgiveness bitterness Participation in or exposure to the occult, Sexual sins Abortion Divorce Curses Inherited or Generational Sin: See Exodus regarding the iniquities of the fathers being passed on to the children of the third and fourth generations. Abuse, sexual, emotional, physical Rejection Our Image of God How It All Works Sin opens doors or gates in our spiritual hedge, allowing spiritual pollution to enter, thereby causing spiritual as well as physical problems.
Sin can actually make us sick— spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Even so, the Good News is that God loves us and determinedly wants to restore us to His Kingdom, so much so that he sent His Son Jesus to earth that we may be forgiven, saved, healed, and delivered Is. The Good News is that God wants to restore us to Himself that we might walk in the peace and protection of His will.
Sins, wounds, and hurts are always barriers which separate us from approaching God or from feeling connected to Him. These dark influences in our lives at times resulting in bondage hinder or prevent us from being restored to our rightful relationship with the Lord, from hearing His voice and knowing His will for our lives.
Nonetheless, know that God wants whatever is separating us from Him to be healed. He wants to close the open gates in our spiritual hedge and to set us free from the influences of darkness. He wants to remove all the chains or ropes binding people in the different areas of their lives. Again, God wants us to be restored to Him in the purity and innocence that Adam first had in the beginning. While baptism provides forgiveness for our sins if we repent, it does not necessarily take away the consequences of our sins or of those of our ancestors.
For example, if you are driving drunk, hit a pedestrian and put him in the hospital, and this person then has a permanent disability, will the Lord forgive your sin? Yes, if you repent. He provided for our forgiveness on the Cross; but will He immediately remove the consequences of that sin? The sin is on the head of the driver but the result or consequences of that sin is borne by the pedestrian.
Christians can be totally repentant and still unknowingly be under the influence of darkness in parts of their spirit as a result of the consequences of previous sin. The problem is one of awareness.
Many Christians struggle with major issues in their lives but are ignorant of the fact that the victory Jesus won for them on the cross not only assures them of eternal salvation but also provides the keys to healing Is.
Unfortunately many Christians believe that because they have been saved and born again they are protected from darkness. Satan loves such spiritual blindness and false beliefs.
The author has personally prayed with hundreds of people influenced by darkness and everyone said they were a Christian. As an example, look at the Apostle Peter. Peter was obedient, he followed Jesus Matt , he had power to cast out demons and heal the sick Matt , he had faith to walk on water Matt , he was a part of the miracles of feeding the Matt , and the Matt , and he was prophetic when he knew who Jesus was Matt
