Once Delivered You Can Remain Free
Since I have been in the deliverance ministry I have seen many Christians obtain deliverance from evil spirits then lose this deliverance. This can come from being careless in their Christian walk, prayer life and Bible studies.
The Christian that receives deliverance must not become a demon hunter. If a Christian that has gone through deliverance stays away from unclean living, fear, and participation in activities that were identified in their initial deliverance there will be no fear of getting repossessed. When a person initially receives deliverance they see the power of God operating against the power of the devil and they may become so overwhelmed with the power of the enemy that they will not fully acknowledge the power of God. To remain free the Christian must always acknowledge the fact that the power of God will always be superior to the power of the enemy in every single case.
When we look at deliverance from evil spirits we see different levels of demonic influence. Some people were deeper into the clutches of the enemy than others. This means that every case of deliverance is different. What worked for one person may not work for another and each individual “walking out” of the deliverance will be different. The “walking out “of deliverance describes the aftercare and the way that the Christian adjusts to the freedom that has been experienced through the liberation of evil spirits. During this period the deliverance candidate must follow the instructions of the person that has administered deliverance to them. This is a period where the person that has just received deliverance is the most vulnerable. The new candidate must learn how to defend themselves through binding and loosing and other spiritual warfare prayers.
Ephesians 6:11-13: Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
A Christian must learn to protect themselves through prayer and the Word of God. Another way is for the Christian to always be joined in with someone that has an understanding of the Deliverance ministry. The best place for that new deliverance candidate is with the ministry that administered deliverance to them in the first place. A person that is seeking deliverance must be very prayerful and fasted in seeking deliverance. This is due to the fact that there are many false ministries that do not know what they are doing in this ministry. When a deliverance candidate gets involved with these types of ministries there will be more harm than good caused. The person will leave confused, frustrated and in worse shape than before.
The new deliverance candidate must know in their own heart that they can be free and remain free by staying close to Jesus and the people that the Lord has placed around them.
