The underground ministry…Deliverance from Demonic possession. Part 1

 

The underground ministry…Demonic possession. Part 1

 

     For the last few days I have struggled with writing about my experience on this particular topic. I have sat at my computer and deleted the pages every time. Why is this so difficult to write about? I have a few ideas that I can name, but first I want to name this topic as “The underground ministry”. What I am speaking about is the deliverance ministry from spiritual bondage. Why I call this the underground ministry is because it is not accepted in the world and also sadly to say not accepted in many churches. The world calls you nuts, but yet believes in “friendly Ghost” and the church calls you nuts because of something they have no understanding from lack of teaching and fear in the churches. I have said it before that the churches have dropped the ball and let the people down by not teaching how real spiritual battles are and yes I’m going to say it…, and how real demonic possession is. I’m not saying that they don’t believe in it because they have to believe in it, it’s in the bible. Jesus casted demons out of people, but they say, “Stay away from it, don’t have anything to do with it” If we would do that then tell me how the captives would be set free? To me that contradict the scriptures that God has given us.  Come on Christian people, it is our duty to go out and rescue the lost, set the captives free. Jesus has given us the same authority that he had when he was casting out demons.

Luke 9:1 (New King James Version)

1 Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.

 

Luke 10:19-20 (New King James Version)

 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but ratherrejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

 

     I believe that many churches want to hide their heads and pretend it does not exist while all along their congregations are being consumed by the roaring lion who is seeking whom he may devour. Folks this is real, we need to wake up and look around at the many people who have been defeated by the enemy simply because they did not know how to fight against him.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (New King James Version)

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

 

     God has equipped us for battle, he has given us the armor to put on daily, and if we were not going into battle we would not need the armor. The armor the warriors wore went from head to toe, protection for every area of the body. To me that means serious battle, and going over to the enemies camp and bringing out the captives or claiming back what was once theirs or even claiming what was not theirs from the beginning because God said “I give to you, now go and take it” I’m not saying that we need to go in the middle of an occult ritual and start waving the Bible and grabbing the people and trying to set them free, one reason is the person needs to be seeking help and want to be set free and the other reason is you just might find your self being the sacrifice that had walked in at the wrong time If God did not tell you to go. Be wise. But could God tell you to do that? Yes he could, and if he told you to do that he would protect you. Jesus said He sends us out as sheep among wolves, He wants us to know the truth, and His sheep are not afraid of the truth! What we need to realize is in (Rev 7:3) we have His Name “sealed on our foreheads”, and just as demons knew who Jesus was and were subdued and cast out, they know who His sheep are! I hope I have answered my question in “Why is this so difficult to write about?”

     Now with the boldness that God has given me I would like to share a little of my ministry experience dealing with demonic possession in other people. But first I want to praise God that he has given me a husband that sees the importance of this ministry and has come alongside of me to fight the enemy.  He at one time was one of those skeptic that knew it was real but didn’t know it was so prevalent in our world today and didn’t want anything to do with it. He had questions that I could only answer from experience, but he wanted answers from the bible. I would take him to the scriptures that I thought would answer his questions but he was still a skeptic and didn’t want to believe that it was real.  I warned him before we got married that if he was going to marry me that he would at one time find himself experiencing the deliverance ministry. And lo and behold he did.

     I will be short and sweet to the point as much as I can. Here is one experience that I would like to write about. The names have been changed. Her name was Tina and was raised in a Christian home. Tina was 10 years old and did not feel good about her self so in her inferiorities and insecurities she had cried out and said, “I would do anything to be pretty” Now you asked how a little thing like that hurt her? Here is the simple answer, it opened up windows. As she was growing up rape, sorcery, hypnosis, sexual activities were introduced into her life. When she became the age of accountability she made choices that she will eventually learn to regret. Through all of this the enemy fulfilled her desire and made her very pretty. I meet Tina one summer through her sister-in-law Cindy. The family described Tina as a very angry, sexually active spoiled daughter. As I sat and asked questions and listened to the answers right away the Holy Spirit told me she was demon possessed and I agreed to meet with her. Before I was able to see her face to face I had received phone calls one day after another from Cindy stating that Tina’s spirits were manifesting. So I found my self doing battle over the phone in confidence that Cindy was capable to do warfare and instructed them to get her to me as soon as possible.

     This went on for nearly a year of praying and binding and kicking out. The battle was very physical at times, long, and those demons were not going to leave without a good fight. I got her to do the most important thing that needed to be done on her part and that was to ask God to forgive her and renounce any involvement that she had with things that did not bring glory to God. Tina was sitting on a chair I was sitting on the floor and  Cindy was next to me and my husband was clear across the room. I asked if he wanted to come and help us pray, he stated he was fine just where he was at. (Bless his heart)  I began to pray and ask God to be in our mist and apply his blood to all of us in room and home over everything in and out of the house and had everyone to examine their own walk with God, get things in order so the demons could not come back at them. As I went to place oil on her head (represents the Holy Spirit) the bridge opened up wide and she fell on the floor and started screaming and hissing like a snake. Cindy grabbed her feet and I her shoulders and we wrestled with her for a second then I looked up and there was my husband taking her shoulders over so I would be free to go into battle. This is where my husband became a believer in demonic possession. These are the demons that we confronted that night. Spirit of rebellion, spirit of Python (this one was very obvious because it would coil and slither and hiss like a snake,) and spirit of Whordom. I will end this already long hub and continue with part 2 later.

     I know this ministry is not for everyone and that’s okay, and even some of you might fear this ministry,  I want you to put your fears to rest and just know that you have the true weapon to fight the attacks of Satan in your life and that is the name above all names. “Jesus” If you don’t have the want to then God hasn’t given it to you. As Christians we also need to remember this scripture: Mark 16:16-18 (New King James Version)

16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

     May you find your Boldness in Christ Jesus and his word by knowing who you are in Christ and whose you are. You are the child of the most high, and the demons are subject to you, you are not subject to them. Once I established this in my own heart and head and found out that the demons had to shut up after I told them to shut up in Jesus name gave me the assurance that I indeed was a child of the most high and my fears where gone and that my name is written down in the lambs book of life. Praise God!!

Praise God! Yes, and AMEN! I was very disappointed the other morning, listening to a pastor I listen to every morning on the radio during my commute to work. While he holds to certain 'traditional' doctrine I do not agree with, he still has some doctrine that is right on and truth.

Nonetheless, he absolutely stated that demonic possession and the deliverance ministry is NOT in existence today ~ only in the Apostles' day!! He even wrote a book on the subject!! I'm sure your heart is as sick as mine over hearing such a thing! Woe....

The seventy disciples in Luke 10:19-20 were NOT of the twelve apostles, yet they were out casting out demons. And in Mark 16:16-18, Jesus is NOT just speaking about the apostles of that day ~ "those who believe" include ALL who believe, both at that time and prophetically.

It is by faith in the Son of God and the infilling of His Holy Spirit, the anointing (the Spirit of Messiah) is upon us and within us, which empowers us to use the Name of Our LORD, Jesus Christ to cast out the strong man and his minions. The blood; yes, His precious blood ~ Hallelujah.

In a couple of experiences I had: one of personal deliverance and another of later demonic attack, I found in the first case my deliverence came when head knowledge of the Word (powerless) was empowered by faith in the Word ~ that Jesus is the Son of God, who shed His blood for the remission of sin, and that He rose again on the third day; in the latter experience, I was directed to hide behind the robes of Jesus (in spirit) and let HIM rebuke the devil and his minions. Jude 1:9 applied here: "But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, 'The Lord rebuke you!'"

One thing's for sure ~ God will deliver us individually (another person is not always necessary); He will direct us in the spirit realm, and will use us to deliver others by the anointing of oil and the laying on of hands. In the case of the seven sons of Sceva, however, they were not saved and just used the Name of Jesus. Surely, the demons not only came out, but then jumped on them, causing much harm (Acts 19:13-16). Truly, there are many who practice this, yet the Lord doesn't know them (Mat 7:22-23).

You are not alone in believing and experiencing this truth about the spirit realm, sister. Boldy state the truth ~ it needs to be proclaimed!!

WOE is right, It's those typ of people that I fear for. My heart went to my stomach when I read that. It's ministers like that that drops the ball. I hurt for the people that sit under his teaching in that area. They are easy to fall under Satans attacks.

Thank you for your post they always lift me up and I so enjoy the scriptures that you list.

Thus, why we must be armed with the knowledge of the Word to discern teaching that is to our detriment!! There are so many lambs that have yet to mature into sheep, sitting at the mercy of the teacher, rather than the Holy Spirit. God is faithful to those who seek Him, to grow them and deliver them from false teaching, for when the time comes that they experience such a supernatural thing, that teacher won't be able to help them ~ furthermore, that teacher will label them as crazy, as will the other members of that body. The body of Christ, the Church, is the temple made without hands (Mark 14:58). He knows who are His; amen (John 10:27)!!!

AMEN Amen and AMEN. I had a conversation with one of my ministers that I sat under for a short time and what he had said left me with a sick stomach and again was reasured that the church is blined. He stated that he had me evaluated by a Psychologist and determinded I had split personality. Now i'm not sure where i was at that evaluation so it must have been one of the other mes..lol But again I was labeled "NUTS" lol I have to laugh.

Oh and by the way, I noticed my brother was one of your fallowers, he LOVES to debate...lol ABrushing1968

Judah's Daughter 6 years ago from Roseville, CA

ABrushing's been good to me :-) Praise God! Iron sharpens iron; amen. You know, I wanted to share that I also believe demonic possession is evident when one speaks in plurals and third person. I have a relative that abused drugs, even prescription drugs and alcohol most of his life. There are periods when he speaks and writes in "we" (meaning I), "them" (meaning you) and "they" (meaning you) and "us" (meaning me). Consider how Legion spoke in singlur and plural (Mark 5:7-10).

My relative is in prison, in and out of prison...and this prison is the physical one ~ yet, he's already experiencing the spiritual prison, the reality to come ~ unless God delivers him, by His almighty Spirit. This relative has to be ready to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and I don't believe he is. It would be dangerous for him to be delivered now, for to do so cleans his house, and if it not be filled with God's Spirit, he will end up seven times worse off than he started (Luke 11:24-26). I am praying for him. Blessings to you, sister! And to your brother, too!!

I look forward to part 2 of this hub. Very informative. We cannot bury our heads in the sand when it comes to such a subject. Or become 'comfortable' while living and walking amidst those that are suffering from demonic attacks and/or possessions and/or influences (such as the people of the Gadarenes in Luke 8, who were more comfortable in living with this demon possessed man than they were when he was delivered of the demons). This subject of demonic activity, was most definitely one of Jesus's most conveyed ministries for a reason.

And thanks for the heads up, Judah's Daughter concerning speaking in plurals. Hmmmm, interesting and I will be keeping my ears and eyes opened!

CarrieG 6 years ago from Nevada Author

Hi Debradoo,

Thank you for stopping by. Satan and possession is alive and running rapid in the world today. Satan knows the authority Christians have just by using the name of Jesus so He works over time to blind the leadership and individuals so they will not carry on that particular ministry that you mentioned in your post “This subject of demonic activity, was most definitely one of Jesus's most conveyed ministries for a reason”. We are to be Christ like, do the same works that Jesus did. Hummm what happened.

I sit back in cell groups, bible studies, etc and we can talk all night about Missionaries, brining in the lost, helping the homeless, setting the captives free, which is all great but someone mentions the ministry of deliverance and you will get the majority of the group willing to talk about it but says they are fearful of it, then there is like 1 or 2 that think your all crazy and wont enter into the conversation.

I am under heavy attack from the enemy and have been for some time. I am drawn to the deliverance ministry as well. I have been harrased for too long and have sought help from the church and was dunmfounded at the arms length approach they take. When you have time please read some of my hubs and they will explain in greater detail what I have been going through and if there is anything you can do to help me please advise, I want to be free! Thank you and God Bless you.

Hi Tim,

Thank you for reading my hub. I will read your hubs and keep you in prayer. Remember that as we draw near to God he promises to draw near to us. I will be talking to you.

Thank you

I feel like I have a calling for deliverance Ministry.. I dreamed that I was casting out the devil for several times..and something within my spirit is stirring for a battle.. I'm not assuming but I'm prayerfully asking for my true calling...I suffered from anxiety and depression but I got healed though establishing my faith in Jesus... I'm also very concerned for the mentally oppressed people (as to how I call people who have psychological disorders) I majored psychology when my mother suffered from a nervous breakdown. My pastors and some of my church mates went to our house for the deliverance of it. Then, a snake came out of our house which my mother killed, then she got a lot better after that without medications. And now, I don't know why but something in my spirit is stirring for a battle...and I'm not sure if it is for the deliverance ministry.

Hi Rainie, thank you for stopping by and reading my hub. Deliverance ministry isn’t for everyone but those who have the same desire as you do need to prepare your self for battle. Keep close to God and let God lead you through. God gives us the desires that you are feeling when he calls us to a ministry. I also had many dreams of being called in for a deliverance. Keep in prayer, if this is a calling from God then Satan will not like that God is preparing another warrior for his army.

God Bless you

im thankful that you have this site for people to read and comment on about demon possession, i to was poeesessed in 2003,it scared me really bad,i grew up in church thinking i was saved, but of course i wasn't, if someone is trully saved, they are reborn again in spirit, and they will be true followers of jesus christ, he delivered me from sexuall sin that ive been living in since i was 8 yrs old,and and i don't smoke pot anymore or drink, im no longer viliont like i use to be, i don't know every thing is different with me, in the book of phillpians, paul says GOD will give you the desires to obey him and its true, in the book of galations its says that if your living in the spirit of GOd you wont do what the sinful nature wants you to do, and hes right, read for yourself, its the fifth chapter of galations, i don't even steal anymore, and i want to work with my own two hands and give to someone who is in need of food,clthing, i use to be selfish, and JESUS is teaching me to die to myself everyday and allow him to live though me, so anyone who wants to be reborn again can, don't allow anyone to tell you any different, GOD wants a family of his own and you can be apart of that family by exepting his free gift of grace through JESUS CHRIST, and tell him you want to know wht sins are and to give you stength to die to them and give you the desire to obey him and he will, im a living testimonie, GOD BLESS YOU and don't give, its worth the fight,

Thank you Jennifer for your comment. You are so right with turning your life over to God. You can't go wrong when you allow God to be Lord of your life. I am betting you have a good testamony of what God has brought you out of.

Again thank you for taking time to read my post.

Thank you for allowing God to minister through you. Please pray for my friend who is is trapped but won't admit! He is isolated due to his conversations and treatment towards others and blasphemy, God knows! His name is Patrick.

CarrieG 4 years ago from Nevada Author

Hi gentle,

Thank you for reading my post. I will keep Patrick in my prayers. You keep being his friend and love him as Jesus loves him and you will see a new Patrick.

Carrie


gentle 4 years ago

Hello Carrie, please continue to lift Patrick in prayers and fast for him. He is trying to shift the darkness but can't as he's bound. The true weapons of warfare can protect and free him - in these I trust and look forward to him calling on Jesus for himself and his loved ones.

CarrieG 4 years ago from Nevada Author

Hi again gentle,

The key word you used "HE" is trying, HE can not do it without Christ. It will be a battle he will not win. It's only through Christ that sets the captives free. Please feel free to email me through the Hub pages and we can talk a little more openly. My prayers are for Patrick and others like him. And also for you who will be a friend there for him.

I am demon possessed and i need God but i know the spirit of god has left me as he did saul. I feel myself getting worst each day. I grew up in the church saved and a month ago i started doubting jesus and the bible.. the thoughts took control it may have turned into unbelief... its like a nightmare my mind wouldn't let go. Then i read a verse the blaspheme chapter and then my mind automatically everytime i said the holy spirit would go to the name that they called the evil spirit. I knew it wasn't true i didn't believe it but its like when you try not to think of something you think it constantly. It was driving me insane. Now ive qsked for forgiveness so many times but its only grnted throught the holy spirit. I know im possessed by demons. I also believe jesus is lord and that he came in the flesh and he is the son of god amen. At this point i have tingling all over my body face and head and pain sometimes and movement in my stomach. My pupils are black and dialated. Im unable to retain memory which is getting worse and worse. My heart felt like it was being chewed and ripped apart so now i feel nothing emotionally. I just want the holy spirit, nothing more nothing less.

Hi Bainyu,

First I ask where do you live ? And then for the most important part is , God loves you, he STILL loves you. No matter how you feel or think at this point and no mater what the demons are saying to you God still loves you. You need to remember that as hard as it will be for you to believe that because of condemnation, second you need to find a deliverance team and get set free... IT CAN BE DONE!!!

So again write me back and tell me where you are from.

Hi RG,

you are so right. Although there are allot of people including Christians will tell you there are not as many as were in the bible days. I would agree to a point...no there are not as many...matter of fact there are more. Thank you for sharing.


RG 2 years ago

I agree there are more. Could be because religion is almost taboo nowadays. Praise GOD there are people like you and my friend getting the word out and helping others.

Unfortunately, many are under the false perception that there are no demons, there is just mental illness. They think that in Jesus' time, people didn't know about mental illness and blamed demons because they were ignorant. How misinformed they are! Great hub. Your hub topics are right up my alley, I will read more of them.
