Freedom From Demons

Jesus Christ gives us the spiritual principles of deliverance.  He practiced deliverance!  In fact, 1/3 of Jesus ministry was casting out demons.  If Jesus did it, I am going to do it.  Jesus said, "The works I do you shall do also, an greater works than these shall you do, because I go to the Father."  John 14:12  Why does the church shy away from deliverance ministries?  Same reason Jesus was criticized for casting out demons.  They accused Him (Jesus) of doing it by the power of Satan himself.  "You cast out demons by the power of Satan" they said of Jesus.  There is a great deal of misunderstanding about this calling. Two problems of are the cause.  Lack of understanding or teaching.  And overemphasis or obsession with those that do this ministry.  It is only ONE PART of the ministry and not the whole.  We have to keep it in balance with the overall calling of "Preaching the Gospel of the kingdom".  Satan operates on two levels.  In the heavenlies through fallen angels, and on earth through evil spirits or demons.  You must understand where these two categories originate from and how they operate.  This series on spiritual warfare will do that for you.  This video summarizes many of the misconceptions that people have and brings biblical teaching to the forefront.  Please watch and let the Holy Spirit instruct you in this vital ministry
