Acts 10:38: How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Matthew 8:16-17: When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
BELIEVERS DEPART FROM THE FAITH
1 Tim 4:1-2: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
GALATIANS BEWITCHED BY SPIRITS
Galatians 3:1: O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
SATAN GETTING ADVANTAGE OF BELIEVER
II Cor. 2:10-11: To whom ye forgive anything, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; 11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
OUR DECISION WAS THE START OF A NEW LIFE BUT ALSO A NEW WAR WITH THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS
John 10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
• Unfortunately, we have to contend with the enemy of our salvation
• When we make ungodly, sinful decisions
o we can open a spiritual gateway to the demonic realm.
NO CHRISTIAN WILL WALK THROUGH THIS LIFE WITHOUT SINNING, BUT WHEN WE TURN TO GOD AND TRULY REPENT, WE RECEIVE HIS GRACIOUS FORGIVENESS.
No two peoples walk with Jesus is alike
Deliverance is a process.
• Like an onion has layers
• Deliverance comes off in layers
BEFORE RECEIVING DELIVERANCE, WE: REPENT AND THEN
1. Repent of all sin.
2. Renounce the sin
Repenting: is asking forgiveness and changing your ways to not behave in that way anymore.
• Renouncing/Denouncing is stating that you no longer want to be associated with it and cutting all ties with the sin.
o Denouncing: Public recognition that you know that sin is wrong
Give your heart to Jesus today by saying this prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for dying on the cross for my sin. Please forgive me. Come into my life. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Please, help me to live for you the rest of this life. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus, I pray.
