Revelation 2: 24: “But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.”
Since October of 2014, I have been going through a deeper deliverance. When a demon comes out of your body, it can be very painful (Mark 9: 26: “And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.”). Parts of my body became very sore in late October and early November—I call this New Testament Circumcision. The pain became unbearable around my eyes and the front of my head, so I had to take some ibuprofen for two to three weeks. My left eye was horribly blood-shot and then, a week later, my right eye became very blood-shot. The body can go through a lot of stress while going through deliverance.
Why did the demon or demons come out? In my experience, a demon will come out of my body when I obey the Lord in something He has told me to do—especially if it is something I really don’t want to do. The demons that came out of my body since October, I believe, came out because some curse was broken. A curse is like a prison sentence: when the prison sentence is finished, the curse is broken—I would call this strategic deliverance. I believe it could have been a generational curse (sins of my ancestors). I went through six deliverance sessions back in 1988 and 1989 and was delivered of some demons—I would call this tactical deliverance.
When a demon comes out, there can be much coughing, choking and gasping for air or there can be much sneezing with a lot of phlegm coming out of your sinuses or your lungs. I have heard of people vomiting when going through deliverance, but I don’t think that has ever happened to me.
I am very grateful that the Lord is continuing to purify my body and soul of demonic bondage (I don’t believe a Christian can have a demon in his spirit), so that my life will be a more powerful witness for the Lord. “Work out your salvation with fear trembling.”(Philippians 2:12) As of today, my right eye is slightly blood-shot and I haven’t had any severe pain in over two weeks.
Isaiah 10: 27: “. . . and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing.”
Matthew 17:18-21: ” And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
Hebrews 6:1-3: “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit.”
