Evil spirits of “sorcery or divination” were evident in the Old Testament: evil spirits are real in the New Testament but God has anointed us with new powers of deliverance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is a Précis: YOUR LIGHT SHINES IN MY DARKNESS By Rev. Joseph Kane, OM
THE WORKS OF GOD AND THE WORKS OF SATAN
Satan dangles a brief pleasure before the victim in order to visit permanent grief on him or her. God asks of us a moment of suffering with the firm promise of an eternal reward.
Satan tempts us to sin saying it will do no harm, then tortures the person when he yields, with the lie that the harm is irreparable and the sin unforgiveable. God warns us beforehand that sin harms us, but offers us the bright hope of forgiveness and renewal.
By searching for forbidden knowledge, one unwittingly opens the door to one’s mind to an evil spirit. But how can God permit this? He does not permit this. The Bible is very clear on this point:
9 When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 18:9-15
Remember what the devil said to Eve: 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4-5
The occultists always attract their victims with false promises: the lie. You will have power. We will inform you of your beloved deceased. The spirits will obey you.
Yet, the one who pretends to control the spirits sooner or later is controlled by them. How? They are told that obeying increases the channel of influence. Heavier things are asked and the slavery grows.
Have you observed anyone who is dabbling in any form of occult? Have you noticed that they actually lack joy — even nervous and fearful. You can actually recognize the signs of guilt, anger and resentment.
One person who had been a primitive pagan before being a Christian was asked what it was like: “It was living in darkness. The power of the witch doctor created an environment of fear, suspicion and murder.”
This form of slavery can be broken with a prayer of deliverance, where the person rejects the pact made and turns the area over to Jesus. In the Name of Jesus, the bonds are broken and revoked. The command to the spirits is to leave in the Name of Jesus and to go to the feet of Jesus without bothering anyone. The one who is delivered will feel a noticeable immediate feeling of peace.
THE NEW AGE
Satan deceives us into thinking we can possess powers on our own and control spirits, people and events. Ironically, those who want to control end up being controlled.
The New Age movement offers a “create your own religion” orthodoxy in which man can do no wrong. So there is no sin or reason for guilt.
Various programs such as the Silva Mind Control has swept into Corporate America. The premise that man himself can create his own reality is attractive to those who promote ” human potential” as a faith to live by.
Our school system has been leaking practices of Eastern mystical religions, such as Transcendental Meditation, yoga and even hypnosis. Other classroom activities include fantasy role-playing and self-revelation. One of the more subtle ways the enemy is attacking is through a game of Dungeon and Dragons. People who are involved would say that it is only a game and they wouldn’t be affected by it: not true.
DUNGEON AND DRAGONS
Dungeon and Dragons is an expanded fantasy which is played out in the players’ minds — interacting with various monsters or creatures: a general chaos that easily surpasses most horror movies. What do you think is the consequences of children spending hours being thieves, assassins, demi-humans and sorcerers. Be not mistaken: this is a world of extreme violence, gruesomeness, detailed crime and torture. The dungeon master himself, the one player that rules the game, embarks on a new career of being one of the elite who possess powers.
These powers are in a world where there is no moral standards, nor any moral conclusions. Good does not triumph over evil. The end justifies the means. Brute strength and cunning are exalted. The entire purpose of the game is to become powerful and how one does it makes no difference.
Another book, Monster Manual, presents 200 monsters all of whom can be encountered in the game including Satan and various demons. Each player is taught to cast spells and to use magic. There are both good and evil spell which number 250 possibilities, including animating the dead, insect plagues, death and reincarnation. Other practices include communicating with the dead and summoning of demons,
In the game, there is no limit to one’s power. Those who perfect the game have a chance of being divine and taking one’s place along with other god and goddesses with one’s own worshippers. This is called “ascension” in the game parlance.
Let us repeat the warning: Satan deceives us into thinking we can possess powers on our own and control spirits, people and events. Those who want to control end up being controlled.
THE DRUG SCENE
Unsuspecting young people are pulled into the drug scene with the same kind of deception. They are promised the high, but are not shown the terrible suffering a little further down the road. Remember the cigarette ads of the Marlborough man that portrayed “the he-man-wins-the-west” scenario. There were four different Marlborough men in their ads over many decades and all four died of lung cancer before their time.
DECEITS OF SATAN
In the more ordinary experiences of the Christian struggle, people are influenced by evil thoughts,” Why should I go to Mass; I don’t get anything out of it” The “anything” is often judges unconsciously as “pleasurable distraction”, much like an entertaining theatrical production. The thought also arises that praying is a waste of time.
The alternative is getting caught up in many projects and activities. One hears less and less the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit guiding one. One is tempted to take the easy way out of going with the crowd.
You should really be aware that family happiness can only be found when we seek the Light of Christ in deep prayer and the Word of God (the Bible).
GENERATIONAL SINS, DEFECTS AND DISORDERS
The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’ Numbers 14:18
In the prayer for inner healing, there is almost always the need to go back to the womb and to heal the trauma of the parents’ incomplete yes to life.
To illustrate, a pastor asked for discernment from God to answer the question of why a man’s brother was gay and he was not. You will not find the response in any book of psychology: God revealed that his gay brother was affected by an unreasonable angry father. The baby in the womb understandably took the side of the mother.
This explanation shows that we have to deliver away the generational spirits which have affecting victims, who are very innocent. It doesn’t mean that the gay person should change; it only means that there are evil influences that have to be dealt with.
The two areas of greatest needs are areas of repentance and reaffirmation of life.
The aborted child should be given a name. One asks pardon of God and one’s children. One should ask that the Precious Blood of Jesus cover them as in baptism and to give them peace. Some call this the Baptism of Desire.
One can also meditate in prayer on the beautiful text of Isaiah 49:
Before I was born the Lord called me;
from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name…
Yet what is due me is in the Lord’s hand,
and my reward is with my God.”…
for I am honored in the eyes of the Lord
and my God has been my strength…
I will also make you a light for the Gentiles,
that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.”…
because of the Lord, who is faithful,
the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.” Isaiah 49
AUTHORITY OF THE PARENTS
Just as parents have authority to protect their children legally, in the same way they have spiritual power to bless and to speak out against curses and evil.
22The Lord said to Moses … ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them: (The blessing below is perfect )
The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.
“So they will put My name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.” Numbers 22-27
WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?
Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Peter 5:8,9
All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’” Luke 10:17
DELIVERANCE AND EXORCISM
Exorcism is exercised in case of possession, while deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.
“The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do so. The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.” Deuteronomy 18:9-15
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” Philippians 2:10 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me Luke 4:18 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
These evil spirits are legalistic and they must be delivered in the Name of Jesus Christ by their function, otherwise the specific spirit would simply say “they are not talking to me” and they will stay.
WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DELIVER EVIL INFLUENCES A faithful Christian who is sinless: otherwise the evil spirits will just laugh at one’s sins.
The person being delivered does not have to be Christian. In fact, if you are a die-hard Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist or any other religion you are in for a big surprise. You will only know by trying it: you have every thing to gain and nothing to lose.
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Luke 10:19 “The one who does what is sinful is of the devil … The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.” 1 John 3:8 In the Name of Jesus Christ, you can take authority over all evil influences and break these influences over your life. This is accomplished together with one other Christian who is of God or is very close to God.
HOW DO YOU KNOW A DELIVERANCE HAS TAKEN PLACE?There is a definite sense of peace, which envelopes over the one being delivered. You definitely know something has happened.
Then comes Deliverance!!!
You may be wrapped up in a prickly blanket of sadness, you may be depressed, stressed or anxious, but it isn’t your fault.
You can help yourself more than anyone. The evil influence on you can be defeated through Jesus, the Source of strength. “Every knee will bend before Me” Romans 14:11 That includes all evil spirits influencing you.
To our friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon and Jehovah Witness:
To our knowledge, there is no one in your religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are warded off in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance. You still can be delivered from your attacks, but it needs that all important Christian to command all evil spirits to go to Jesus Christ who will dispose of them according to His Will and to never return .
The person praying for deliverance must be free of sin otherwise the devil will just laugh.
Prayer of Deliverance
The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of … to go to the abyss.” This is said for each individual evil spirit.
The following prayer can be done together: the person to be delivered must also pray during “OUR PART“: “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” or “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” silently.
Your Christian friend will command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love and Blessing of the Lord.
The void that that takes place brings a complete sense of peace, and you will now be free in Jesus.
(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)
If you don’t believe this, try it and see for yourself. You will definitely know in three minutes that a physical change has taken place.
The person delivered must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it. One must soak oneself in God’s love by reading the Bible: the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John.
The delivered person does not want to ever go back to the ever pervading influence of evil spirits. It is very important to connect with a Bible-oriented church.
This same prayer of deliverance can be used to exhort evil influences on members of your family by name in the same manner with you as the intercessor and with your prayerful Christian. They should be made aware of your prayer as a gentle mention that you have prayed for them so they can become more sensitized to God’s Love.
This prayer of deliverance can be printed, quartered and kept in your wallet.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.”
- Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they are trying to be strong because they are really weak and need strength.
- Christians don’t brag of success, but they admit that they are failing and they need God to clean up the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect. Their flaws are far too visible but God believes they are worth it.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain and they have their share of headaches but they call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than thou. They are also simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to this Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading the Gospel according to Luke and then John: It is all about love and you will love it. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. Soaking yourself in the love of God defends you from attacks of the enemy.
