SELF-DELIVERANCE according to God


Many Christians have been told that they MUST do self-deliverance daily in order for them to become free and to remain free; so they privately say their warfare prayers commanding demons to come out of their body and/or soul.  While at the same time, they refuse to involve others in their deliverance. REMEMBER whenever people need to be set free from demonic strongholds, the individual cannot COMPLETELY perform this task on their own. They need the LORD God working through His servant. IF you are daily saying warfare prayers in order to cast demons out of yourself, then ask yourself, "In what area(s) am I being disobedient?" For it is ONLY through the doorway of disobedience demons will enter into a person.  When the LORD God set us free from demonic possession, oppression and/or depression; then we are TRULY free in deed.  From this point, we now have a role to play in our walk of FREEDOM in Christ Jesus while on earth.  We MUST maintain (keep in good condition or keep up) our deliverance in Him; and the ONLY way to do this is by obeying the Word of God which says, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7)." Self-deliverance is NOT casting out demons of oneself.  It is a simple process in which  to maintain one's deliverance or freedom in Christ Jesus after their deliverance. It is post-deliverance and not pre-deliverance. When one fail to follow this simple guideline, the devil will return with vengeance in bringing seven other wicked demons with him to inhabit the person's soul (mind, will, emotions) and/or body (Matthew 12:45). The person's latter state will be far worse than their former condition and they will find themselves doing worse evil than they have done before.  It is then the person will realize they need deliverance AGAIN in Jesus' name. To avoid being entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1), WE MUST MAINTAIN OUR DELIVERANCE IN CHRIST JESUS by yielding daily to the leadership of the Holy Spirit and then we will be able to resist the devil and he will surely run from us. Therefore, when we say warfare prayers, it will be from the standpoint of who we are in Christ Jesus and where we are in Christ Jesus. Selah †
