Release from Demonic Imprisonment

Release from Demonic Imprisonment

Today we have many Christians in one demonic prison or the other, (it is spiritual and not physical) and it is the devil that puts them in these demonic imprisonment (Rev. 2:10). This demonic imprisonment could be in the form of marriage, finance, fruit of the womb etc.

Definition prison is a place where a person is shut up against his will or place where a person, animal or bird is kept in confinement – Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary

Method of Operation

The enemy (devil) use his human agents to charm peoples soul in order to destroy them and the souls of these people are now placed in one demonic prison or the other (Eze. 13:18; Ps. 142:5-7, Isaiah 42:22).

Reasons For Imprisonment

  1. One of the major reasons for hunting these souls and putting them in prison is for them to be afflicted with troubles (Psalm 143:11-12)
  2. Souls are bought by spirit merchants (i.e witches, wizards and occults forces) who use them as spiritual working vehicles. Souls used as spiritual working vehicles are the faces of people the evil ones use to attack people in their dreams in order to shield themselves from attacks (Rev 18:11-13).
  3. Stealing their blessings and also use them as preys for evil. It gives the plowers (demons) the right to plow upon these people’s blessings. (Psalm 129:1-4; Isaiah 42:22).
  4. Place souls under demonic appointment of death. (Psalm 79:11).
  5. Satan places a lot of people in prison to chain them so that their lives will be that of a total darkness and deepest of gloom (Psalm 107:10; Job 36:8).

Effects of Demonic Imprisonment

When a person is placed in demonic imprisonment

  1. He will begin to experience a life of dryness, famine, starvation, failure etc. (Zech. 9:11; Job 30:16-17)
  2. It is meant to kill the person through frustration and hunger. It means, they will face abject poverty in their lives. (Isa. 51:14)
  3. He will be cut off spiritually from his daily provision of favour till he dies. (Jer 52:31-34) God promised us His children that we are entitled to a daily provision of benefit of favour (Psalm 68:19)
  4. It is easy for forces of evil to take that person’s life any hour and any moment. (Psalm 79:11)

Prayers

  1. Ps. 124:7 You have to pray that God should break every demonic cage you have been placed in and let your soul escape like a bird.
  2. Isa. 24:21-23 – You have to pray that God should gather all the astral, territorial and marine spirits that have locked you up in prison and cause shame, and disgrace to be their portion

Self Deliverance

Self Deliverance

Personal Deliverance

Sometimes, there may be no minister who is anointed and knowledgeable about deliverance to help you. Sometimes, you can be heavily attacked in your dream and the next service is about four days away. What do you do? You should never allow evil spirits to reside in your life. If you lack adequate time to do a self deliverance in the mornings, after your quiet time, then, when you’re having your bath, you could do it.

Our environment is such that there are many evil spirits moving around and if you are not regularly cleaning your house, they may lodge there; your level of education not withstanding. If a whole university professor could carry a ritual sacrifice because he needed promotion, then education is irrelevant.

Let’s learn a few lessons now before we go into the actual practice.

A demon is a spirit, which means it’s like a wind or breath. Most evil spirits leave through the breathing passage or by any opening in the body. This is why sometimes when prayers are hot some people begin to pass out gas or emit bad odour. Now when an ambulance wants to go through a busy area and blares its siren, the purpose is to clear the traffic so as to expedite the passage of the ambulance.

Therefore, when praying for self deliverance, you should keep quiet after the prayer before ejecting those evil spirits. This is why at times we ask people to breath in and out. If you are praying or speaking at this time, the spirit will not go out because you have not opened the way for it.

The next lesson you must learn is this; demons can come out by simple breathing, coughing, choking, yawning, vomiting, etc. (get a bucket or bowl around you before the session starts) The manifestations vary according to the person and the spirit involved. All the spirits that are not deeply rooted, depart easily, but those deeply entrenched, will require more time and effort to go. The more stubborn ones will require the help of other believers. Even when they are that strong, and you continue to wound them daily, they will eventually be mortally wounded.

Also, know that if multiple spirits are responsible for one problem, all of them must be removed before total victory is assured. One thing is certain; with every inch of ground grabbed from the devil, you will notice a definite improvement in your life. This is certain. Once the spirit leaves you, there will be a change in you.

Also, remember that an evil spirit must have a legal ground for staying in a person’s life.

The purpose of all these information is to enable you to do a self deliverance at home for yourself.

The process of self-deliverance is carried out in stages. Let’s go through them one by one.

Step ONE

Start with praise worship. You can sing songs to praise God and to worship Him.

Step TWO

Confess out loud Scriptures promising deliverance. Let us run through a few of them:

  • Luke 10:19,
  • Ephesians 1:7,
  • Romans 16:20,
  • Revelation 12:11,
  • Colossians 2:14,15,
  • Galatians 3:13,14,
  • Psalm 91:3.
  • 2 Tim. 4:18 has this to say:

And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. – 2 Tim 4:18

You must at least memorize this one – 2 Tim. 4:18.

Step THREE

Break covenants and curses to destroy their legal hold. You pray a simple prayer

like this:

  • I break any curse working against me
  • I break any covenant working against me, in the name of Jesus.

Simple prayer with much result.

Step FOUR

Bind all the spirits associated with those covenants and curses like this:

  • I bind all the spirits attached or connected to the curses and covenants I have just broken, in the name of Jesus.

Step FIVE

Lay one hand on your head and the other on your stomach or navel and begin to pray like this:

  • Holy Ghost fire, burn from the top of my head to the sole of my feet, in the name of Jesus. (Spend at least 5mins)
  • Begin to mention every organ of your body; kidney, liver, intestine, blood, etc. You must not rush at this level. Lay your hands on areas that the Spirit of God leads you to. Do not be afraid if you notice that you are swaying or staggering, etc.

Step SIX

Then begin to saturate yourself with the blood of Jesus. You do this by saying:

  • Blood of Jesus, enter into my spirit, soul and body.

Next you say:

  • I drink the blood of Jesus.

This must continue until you have a release in your spirit to stop.

Step SEVEN

It is now, that you are able to demand firmly, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that any spirit that is not of God should leave you. You demand it forcefully like this:

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I come against all you hidden spirits and I bind your activities in my life. You can no longer hide below the surface because I now recognize what you have been doing; release me, in the name of Jesus.

If sickness is the problem, address it and say,

You spirit of infirmity, I speak to you directly, get out of my life now. I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ, come out and go now. Go out with every breath by the power of the Holy Spirit. I prevail over you, in the name of Jesus.

At this point, you stop talking; open your mouth and nose and begin to breath in and out. Take about three to seven deep breaths, and expel them forcefully through your mouth and nose. You may be surprised that strange things will begin to happen. Repeat this stage again and again. This will help you to flush out any deposit or impurity within your body. You may notice that you are coughing, yawning, sneezing, sweating or shedding tears, but continue and do not loose your concentration.

Step EIGHT

When you have finished the expulsion stage, you then ask for a fresh in-filling of the Holy Spirit and close the session with praises.

When you are attacked in your dream, rise up and go through the stages I have already mentioned.

Self-deliverance keeps you from getting sick; it removes every evil seed of the enemy; it charges your body with fire. It uproots evil plantations and builds up your confidence.

Every night before you go to bed, you must remember these three important

prayer points.

1. Pray that the walls of fire should surround you.

The Bible says:

For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her (Zec. 2:5).

2. Pray for cover with the blood of Jesus.

Rev 12:11: “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

3. Also pray that the angels of God should surround you.

Ps 34:7: “The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.”

No matter how sleepy you are, make sure you pray these three prayer points every night.

There is no reason why self-deliverance should not be effective. However, if the person seeking deliverance is under stubborn demonic control or hereditary strongman and lacks sufficient faith or authority to defeat the oppressors or living in any known sin, the evil spirits will defend what they think is their right.

One final word of caution. For a person to be delivered, he/she must want deliverance. Self deliverance must not be done because of pride, shyness, the fear of possible public embarrassment, etc. Your motive for engaging in self deliverance has to be pure.

Remember, deliverance is a process and the length of time it takes depends on several things viz:

  • the length of time the spirit has stayed inside a person,
  • the strength and reinforcement of the spirit,
  • the experience and degree of anointing upon those who are ministering the deliverance,
  • the willingness of the person being delivered to be free,
  • the knowledge of the word of God and your level of hatred for sin.

For self-deliverance to be very effective, a great deal of self-discipline is necessary.

Also, remember that bondage can be weak or strong. A weak hold can be broken quickly, whereas a stronghold may take a longer time. You will not realize the strength of a bondage until you faithfully and persistently work on it. You must remember that a foothold can graduate to a stronghold if left unaddressed.

 

Through God we shall do valiantly – Ps108.13

Through God we shall do valiantly – Ps108.13

 

  1. Scripture Reading: Psalm 108

Psalm 108:

title    A Song or Psalm of David.

1     O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, Even with my glory.

2     Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

3     I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: And I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

4     For thy mercy is great above the heavens: And thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.

5     Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: And thy glory above all the earth;

6     That thy beloved may be delivered: Save with thy right hand, and answer me.

7     God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, And mete out the valley of Succoth.

8     Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

9     Moab is my washpot; Over Edom will I cast out my shoe; Over Philistia will I triumph.

10     Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom?

11     Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? And wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

12     Give us help from trouble: For vain is the help of man.

13     Through God we shall do valiantly: For he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
