In this post I wanted to answer some common questions about deliverance.
“And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity (A remnant) in the earth, and to save your lives by a great DELIVERANCE.” Genesis 45:7
The root word for deliverance in scripture is ‘pleytah’ , meaning -Escape; Escaped remnant.
When Jesus began His personal ministry on Earth, He goes into the synagogue and stood up to read from the book of Isaiah, saying “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,and recovering of sight to the blind,to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18-19
Of course the people were astonished,and began murmuring against Him. But that it is what Jesus began to do. When God speaks, he backs up what He is saying and doing.
Man can not manufacture the movement of the Spirit of God, though they have tried for centuries.
I too am a preacher of deliverance, and have been on the receiving end of MUCH deliverance. I would like to tell you how it feels,what it looks like, and why we must allow God to do it in us.
I know ,without a shadow of a doubt that just as God called Moses and Israel out of Egypt, That is what He is doing now. He is calling us out of bondage. He is making a way of escape, he is overthrowing our spiritual blindness, showing us our many captivities. He is setting His bruised and battered people free.
THE HOW :
There is a specific type of anointing that comes with deliverance. It is an “Uprooting” anointing.
It feels like the Holy Spirit holds a mirror up to you and you are required to see the truth about yourselves. The way you actually look in the spirit,not the flesh. It makes the flesh uncomfortable. He is so merciful ,He will show you one truth at a time to work on, He never overwhelms us. He knows ,and will lead you step by step. I have seen Him do it many,many times. On the other side, I see man refuse HIM, and I have watched the Holy Spirit totally bypass people that do. Sadly, just like the original deliverance of the chosen, many will fight against Him, even unto death.
Years ago, by dreams ,visions and prophetic words , the Lord came to me saying ( I will only quote part of it) “Then the Lord put forth his hand ,and touched my mouth. And The Lord said unto me , Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down,and to destroy,and to throw down, to build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:9-10
At the time, I was already teaching about deliverance and casting out demons,but my mind said ” Yeah Right. That is not going to happen”
Notice the order of God’s words “Root out ; pull down ; destroy ; throw down, THEN build and plant.” That is the order, always. Root out darkness and deception ,pull down strongholds, destroy them and cast them down, then allow God to build and plant truth, victory and freedom.
Deliverance ministries have an “Uprooting “ anointing. Every where we go, God begins to uproot things. Unclean spirits get riled because God shines a light on them. The person(s) being used or the person that the unclean spirits manifests’ in is miserable, but helpless to stop it.It is a very difficult ministry, because the spirits in other people attack me and my team,constantly.This is one reason we have stayed hidden in the background for so long. This is why when writing the book ,or doing anything for God, He has to literally pick me up and pull me through it. He has to take the reins and do it . My flesh gets weary, and doesn’t want to suffer attacks in the spirit realm. It is absolutely no fun,at all.
1.What is it? It is for the chosen people of God. It is a way of escape from the enemy and His schemes. It has literally saved my life,and many others.
2. How does it look and feel? It feels like you are being humbled by God, and you are. It feels like extreme pressure and tribulation. It sends you begging for the Lord to help you in the end,because fighting God is a no win. You will relate to Job and the others in the scriptures whom experienced affliction. It hurts .
“Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now I have kept thy word.Thou art good, and doest good; TEACH ME THY STATUTES.” Psalms 119:67-68
3: Why do it? The times we are in today, (the hilt of Babylon) ,our world offers us many alternatives to choose from to alleviate pressure brought on by the devil. But it is a fake antidote, and it does not last. God’s chosen people are running to and fro seeking remedies from everyone and everything but HIM. Everyone wants deliverance, but no one wants to change.
“My people hath been lost sheep: Their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place.” Jeremiah 50:6
The first step in getting deliverance is this; you must choose. You must take a side.
Many people, (including me) have served God, claimed God, and even worked for God,but in our filthiness, we have served the enemy at times too.
The enemies kingdom,referred to spiritually as Babylon, has three main enforcers with a legion of demons under them thwarting us all. They are AHAB, JEZEBEL, and LEVIATHAN.
Diary of an Unlikely Warrior is an anointed battle plan. As I have said before, we spent many years chipping away at lesser demons. What we have discovered with this revelation is this : If we cut off the head, the rest of the spirits have to flee. It is a merciful act of God to possess this knowledge, this battle plan and this privilege .
Please stop the enemy from telling you that you have no need of deliverance. Deliverance is personal. God takes your hand and partners with you. He gives you the tools, the weapons and the strength.
The Church has affectively removed one of the main works that Jesus did on earth. And that is why she is so messed up. She has forsook Deliverance
Partner with him now, this day and allow HIM to clean you up. He will be able to trust you more, use you more, and bless you more.
