Since I have been openly working with deliverance, I have been getting a lot of emails from people asking some great question.
One thing that I do notice is that the enemy is really hammering Christians today.
One of the most asked questions / statements is something like this …
“I know that I have a demon problem. I have been praying and praying. I rebuke the enemy, bind it and cast it out. But nothing changes, I am still hearing the voices, still being tormented and under such heaviness, depression, sadness and at times I think I am going crazy.
What am I doing wrong? Please help me! I am barely hanging on and completely exhausted with this battle. “
I get emails like this quiet often.
This is why I say that the enemy is hammering Christians in these last days that we are living in.
So what is the problem that so many people are facing?
They are literally infested with demons, I mean they have a HUGE problem with hundreds of demons as well the minions that follow as well.
Snakes & You Living On The Fifty Yard Line
If this is how you feel, then work with me for a few moments.
Close your eyes and imagine yourself standing in the middle of a football stadium and you are on the fifty-yard line and you are the only one in the stadium.
Can you see that in your mind?
Now, draw circle around where you are standing, say 5 feet in diameter.
Do you see yourself standing in that circle, on the fifty-yard line in the middle of a football stadium?
Now, I want you to imagine the ground is covered with rattle snakes… hundreds, possibly thousands of rattlesnakes. They are rattling their tails, they are striking the air trying to bite you.
In your hand is a flaming torch and you keep waving it at the snakes all around you. Some of them catch fire as you swing your torch, but 20 more move in on your and your 5 foot circle is slowly shrinking and more and more snakes are getting closer and closer.
You are feeling some of them bite you & crawl on your feet. You keep swinging your torch and you continue to light some of the snakes on fire, but it isn’t helping.
You are outnumbered, overwhelmed, there are to many to deal with, but you keep fighting. They are wearing you down, more are biting you, poisoning you, the pain, the hurt, the hopelessness, it’s becoming to much to bare.
To those of you who are reading this and have this problem, did I describe your problem pretty well?
You know that you are doing everything right, but the problem is that you are severely outnumbered.
AND…That is what demons do.
They ambush, overwhelm you and the next moment you realize that you are completely infested with demons, surrounding you. The voices don’t stop. The pain in your heart is horrible. You just want it to stop, but they are rushing in on you and you are drowning in the voices, the thoughts and the horrible emotions.
Whosoever Shall Call…
Joel 2:32 “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:
James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
When you are in this state, surrounded, out numbered, panic and anxiety’s so strong it feels like boulders crushing you.
What do you do?
“Whosoever shall call” … this is a statement and promise that God gives us just for those times. All of a sudden, the fear and panic is now facing the great white throne of God.
SUDDENLY, your head breaks through the water’s surface and you take in that breath of life that only God can give.
SNAP.. some of those chains that were holding you down break away and fall off you. You feel a lightness come over you and bath you in the Holy Spirit’s warmth.
Your circle just got a bigger. Instead of 5 feet in diameter, you now have 15-20 feet in diameter.
But you still have the problem of all the snakes surrounding you, getting closer and closer. Now granted they are not coming in as fast as before, but they are still coming closer and closer.
Does all this sound familiar?
OK, maybe it isn’t snakes, but no matter what you are being attacked from all angles and so overwhelmed you don’t know what to do. Your mind just stops thinking and you want to curl up into the fetal position.
You are demonized. You are literally infested with demons and you need deliverance.
Now the weird thing is that most people won’t seek deliverance out. The main reason is that they do not know that deliverance is available.
All they have to do is call upon the Lord and He will deliver them.
But it never comes to mind.
So, they go through life unhappy, miserable and lacking the joy that God promises because the demons steal every moment of any joy, peace and happiness they might have.
What’s The Answer?
Pouring your heart out to the Lord, crying out to HIM like you have never cried out before.
Submit yourself to the Lord, resist the devil and he will flee.
But submitting means submitting your all, not 50%, 75% or 95%.
You must submit your all, and this is something else that many Christians won’t do.
It is almost as if they would rather live with the pain and torment than submitting 100% of themselves to the Lord so that they can be truly free.
Kind of like a spiritual form of Stockholm Syndrome.
Yes, things are bad, really bad. The snakes are all over them, but some Christians would rather choose the snakes / demons instead of submitting to God.
Then there are some that say they will and they do it, but then they slowly drop their guard and demons covertly pour back in. One day they wake up and they are infested again with a horde of demons.
But then there are those who reach deep down inside themselves for one more battle, one more fight and at the speed of light deliverance comes.
There is power in the name of Jesus… to break every chain.
Suddenly there is VICTORY like never felt before.
THEY ARE FREE! THEY ARE FINALLY FREE.
They fall to their knees and thank God with all their hearts.
They then stand back up a changed person, they have just been through the unimaginable battle and through Jesus Christ they are victorious.
With sword in hand they draw that line in the sand and say NEVER AGAIN SATAN!
For those of you who stood up and continue to stand today, I give you this…
NEVER AGAIN SATAN!
Never again will I allow Satan to control my life!
Never again will Pharaoh (Satan) control me, because I have been delivered from his power!
Never again will I be a slave to Satan; I am now a Servant Warrior of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ!
Never again will I allow the devil to do what he desires in my life, I will resist the devil, and he WILL flee from me! (James 4:7)
Never again will I listen to or believe the lies of the devil, he is a liar and the father of lies! (John 8:44)
Never again will I listen to the voices of the wicked one!
Never again will I be vexed by unclean spirits! (Luke 6:18)
Never again will I be harassed by the enemy! (Matthew 9:36)
