I’ve noticed something about people who receive full deliverance – they’ve become servants of righteousness. They have submitted their wills to God. They read the word, they worship with gospel music and they show up to bible study to build the word in themselves and to edify the body of Christ. They’ve lost their self-centredness.
In other words, become imitators of Jesus Christ. Focus on Jesus, study scripture like Jesus, give thanks to God constantly like Jesus, have compassion on people like Jesus and then cast out spirits and heal the sick:
I believe self-centredness, disobedience and rebellion are major barriers to a full deliverance. Satan was a super selfish being:
Isaiah 14:12-15 King James Version (KJV)
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
Rebellion and disobedience is as witchcraft and idolatry:
1 Samuel 15:23 King James Version (KJV)
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
Basically, a rebel has no fear of God and does according to how he or she feels. They can read the word of God, rationalise it away and just do their own thing according to how they feel. Demons manipulate their feelings against them.
The love of God is to keep the commandments of God, which means to do the things of God even though we don’t feel like it:
1 John 5:2-3 King James Version (KJV)
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
Use the mind of Jesus Christ, as he faced crucifixion, to obliterate sin and lusts from our lives:
1 Peter 4:1-2 King James Version (KJV)
4 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
Why do we do things we don’t like? Because we are commanded to. There is no element of choice here:
Joshua 1:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
If you’re used to getting your own way. Christianity is probably going to be hard for you to adjust to. But if you don’t adjust, you’re going to get pummelled by satan. Learn to submit to God. Be that obedient five year old and you will receive full deliverance much faster.
Also play this video repeatedly to expel spirits from you. Drive those spirits out of you as you drive, before you sleep and when you’re doing work around the house:
