Deliverance is simply breaking the oppressing power of the enemy in our lives. Just about everyone has been
oppressed at one time or the other...
Jesus came to redeem us from the curse. If you have been born again you have a "right" to be free of oppression. You
have been purchased back from the enemy by the Blood of Jesus Christ, your citizenship is now in the family of God.
The enemy no longer has a "right" to your life. From the beginning of creation the plan of the enemy was to get right
between you and God. He does that through a myriad of ways. He wants to hinder and prevent you from walking into
what God has planned for your life.
He knows your potential.
Jesus paid a terrific price for our freedom & healing. What a tragedy it would be if we don't avail
ourselves of all that He gave...
We are composed of three parts, a body, a mind (soul) and a spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23). The spirit of a man belongs
to God, and their spirit is united with the Holy Spirit, but our bodies and minds (souls) can still be afflicted by evil spirits.
Just like you can turn a light on in one room, and the next room in the house can be dark, the same is true in the spirit
of a man is where the Holy Ghost dwells, but the soul or mind of a man is where dirt can still remain long after he or she
accepts Christ. We are told to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (souls) through the Word of God. Our spirits are
instantly made new the moment we are saved, but our souls can take time to renew and clean up.
not believe a demon can touch the spirit of a man after he's accepted Jesus, but where demons do their work is in the soul
or mind. How do you see demons affecting people in the Bible? Through their mind (the lunatic boy, the man with the legion,
etc.), and their physical body (the woman with the spirit of infirmity, the man who couldn't speak because of a demon, etc.).
Demons can try to get our spirits overwhelmed, worn out, or tempt us to sin, but their way of operating in our lives is through
our minds (souls) and by troubling our physical bodies.
