Deliverance & Restoration
There are three times of deliverance they are called initial deliverance, gradual deliverance, and circumstance deliverance. Let me give you understanding.
a. Initial deliverance: Which is for the very newborns in Christ should go through deliverance after coming into the kingdom. I believe that when a person comes to know the Lord they need to be disciple and apart of that is going through deliverance.
b. Gradual deliverance: Sometime deliverance will come in by your maturing in Christ. Christ must first bring you to a certain place in your grow with him in order for you to be set free. Why is that you may ask? For the reason you may not have the strength to live free in that area.
c. Circumstance deliverance: This is not casting demons out of you; this is casting demon off or away from you. You are being set free from the influence of a demon, etc. In addition, you may pick some thing up; demons are like bugs that you cast off you. We need to clean ourselves with the Word so we don't get too dirty from the everyday dirt that we pick up. When there is dirt in our lives demons can hang unto that dirt. They love to look for dirt in our lives. Beside, if you ether ministering a group or a person or visiting a certain city there might be some spirits hanging on you from those time that needs to be cast off. One thing you can do is pray a cleansing prayer.
Apart from that, first if we repent of our sins and false thinking, etc this would help us stay free from evil spirits. We need to decrease the kingdom of darkness in the church and increase the kingdom of God in the Church through deliverance, warfare and prayer.
How does one cast out or do deliverance? Casting out demons is the easy part in deliverance. The part that we must work on more is the legal ground that we have giving to demons.
The legal ground:
a. Asking for forgiveness and repentance of sins.
b. Unforgiveness and bitterness.
c. False doctrines and lies we believe in.
d. Ungodly soul ties.
e. Generational curses, spoken curses, vows, inner vows.
f. Emotional trauma.
But above all we must break these and others by the blood of Christ. Ask the Lord to revel what are the spirits, root causes, and the legal grounds. After the legal ground is talking out you can cast out the demons in Jesus name and send them to hell. If you cast out demons you must fill in that area and close those doors so demons cannot come back.
If cast out demons you need to replace them with more of the Holy Spirit, fruits of the Spirit, grace also after breaking a curses you should speak a blessing over them to replace it. Now after deliverance we come to inner healing, restoration, and Holy Spirit rehabilitation time, which will take some good time to heal and restore. Pray for God to protect them during restoration time and to keep evil forces off while the wall is bring rebuild in those areas or their life.
Some Scripture insights on deliverance and restoration.
a. Luke 11:24-26: "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he does through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, "I will return to my house which I came.' "And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. "Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and enter and dwell there; and the lest state of that man is worse then the first." There is burden with freedom it is called responsibility. When we cast out demons we must put something back into a person. Then there must be restoration. Also pray for protect from any spirit that would try to reenter, or another spirit like that one. When you cast out demons, cast them into hell.
b. Ecclesiastes 10: 8: He who digs a pit will fall into it, and whoever breaks through a wall will be bitten by a serpent. After deliverance there need to be a time of restoration and during that time the wall must be rebuild.
c. Exodus 23:27-30: "I will send My fear before you, I will cause confusion among all the people to whom you come, and will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. "And I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before you. "I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous before you. "Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. Deliverance and restoration is a partnership with the Holy Spirit. Deliverance may not happen all in a day and it may take time. We must be mature to overcome certain things in our life. Above all we must have good foundation before moving forth.
Furthermore, there is great deliverance coming to the Body and to the nations of the world. The Lord is building the Church; the fivefold ministry is equipping the saints for the work of ministry and the work of deliverance and restoration. God's mighty army is an army of restoration.
