(I pray for anyone who reads this post that the Holy Spirit would draw them
to salvation and bless them. I bind any unclean spirits on them & their
property, In Jesus' name.)
Have you ever wondered why demonic religions have sacrifices, chanting, fasting,
dedications, worship, etc.? The demons don't have the followers do it for the
fun of it. This is a way that humans can be used to empower these demons to
resist other humans from driving them off.
How does that work? God is a gentleman. He doesn't want to violate our free
will. That includes evil humans, as well.
We Christians can kick out demons with ease, if they were just sent against
someone without permission or empowerment. It is a three-second operation.
But if the demon has been given human empowerment by an occultist, there is a
conflict of human wills over the disposition of that demon. If the demon has
been given fasting prayers to stay in place, nothing short of fasting prayers
will drive it out. Fasting is a form of sacrifice.
However, if we exercise our Christian authority to bind & loose to break the
(human power given by) sacrifices, chanting, fasting, dedications and worship to the
demons, they are left standing there without any cover. It becomes a
three-second operation to drive them off.
If the demons have been given permission to stay by the infested person, though,
they may go away -- but they will be back any time they want. Repentance and
renunciation are still required to keep them away permanently. If the person
refuses, we need to pray for the person to have a change of heart.
Good intentions can be a problem here. If you knock back all the demons on
someone who is occultly influenced, there is no motivation to salvation by
faith, repent &
renounce. It would be temporary, anyway. If you don't, the demons may be keeping
them from hearing the gospel message of salvation & freedom. Thus
deliverance should be done as part of ministering salvation.
I found out about breaking the empowerment given demons when I was helping a
Christian, runaway Santeria slave. For weeks I worked with him. I couldn't
deliver him. I was coming under attack as well. One day in the grocery store, I
felt the usual dizziness, tunnel vision and partial deafness of an attack. I
turned to Jesus and asked what to do. He told me "break the
incantations." I did that -- and was immediately okay. Whaaat?
Later I asked Him what that was all about and He explained the above to me. This
was the KEY to cleaning up my client! I had him loop through a dozen of the
major Santeria demon gods, renouncing each, breaking each's empowerment and
commanding each to go. He was free when he got done.
Since then I have used this pattern for freeing dozens of Christians.
breaking "seals" that hinder deliverance
I had a man show up on aluminum crutches who had very painful knees. They had
hurt for twenty years after he had a motorcycle accident. They were so painful
he had been to a doctor to see about having his legs cut off above his knees to
stop the pain. No help there! He had been to numerous Christian ministries for
prayer with no relief.
When I started praying for him, I asked Jesus to teach me how to pray for him.
He told me that it was curses placed there with 'seals' used to cover the
curses. A witch had done it to him after the motorcycle accident, to cover her
work. So the first thing I did was break the 'seals'. Then I broke the curses.
He said, "Did you feel that?!" I asked him what and he said he felt
the knee joints "re-arrange." He then said the pain was gone. He stood
up and walked out of the room, carrying his crutches.
No one had been able to deliver him of the curses before. Most witches don't
know how to apply these "seals", I notice. There were three layers of
"seals", each of which had to be broken.
The presence of charmed objects (and not dealing with them) can also block
One young, Christian woman wanted prayer because she felt awful. As soon as my
partner & I laid hands on her and prayed, she passed out. A very loud,
high-pitched scream came from her mouth. This led us to suspect demonic
activity. After an hour of attempted deliverance with her screaming the whole
time, I had to stop and seek the Lord. He told me to look at her rings. She was
wearing three little spoon rings on her left fingers. For each ring, I touched
it and bound any unclean spirit on it. On the third ring, the scream suddenly
stopped, she came to and started gently crying. It was over.
I told my wife about my anonymous client and her rings. My wife said she always
prays over any jewelry she brings into the house because jewelry parts are
recycled for centuries; who knows who has had it in the past? Aargh! If only she
had told me that at least three hours before!
Another Christian I knew bought a magnetic bracelet for her arthritis in her
wrist. The effect faded enough that she bought another one. The arthritis
gradually returned, but she still wore those bracelets. She now had other
I was as tactful as my Aspergers would allow in asking if I could pray for her
arthritis. She agreed. I said the bracelets would get a little in the way of my
holding her wrist, so she took them off. I prayed for her arthritis while
telling evil "influences" to leave under my breath. The arthritis was
permanently healed. The medical problems left. I offered to "pray" for
her bracelets. While praying blessing upon them, I quietly shut down the
charming the manufacturer had put on them. She could put them back on at that
point with safety.
There is a pastor who went to the hospital to get hip replacement surgery -- a
very quick and safe surgery these days. After the surgery, his health didn't
spring back as they expected; it declined! He was having trouble with his lungs
and heart, as well. His charismatic church prayed for him and tried deliverance,
to no avail. He was close to being transferred to intensive care.
I came up to see him and offer prayer. As usual, I asked the Lord Jesus to teach
me to pray for him. He told me there was a witch on staff that was using charmed
medical instruments and supplies on him, to kill him. I delivered all the
equipment and supplies in the room. When I went home, I delivered all the
equipment and supplies in the whole hospital. I bound the demons on the
employees and their properties. I prayed for their salvation.
He immediately started to improve. It took him a month of improvement before
they let him out. He is still limping from the damage, but he is alive &
People who work with demonic powers can obstruct a deliverance through a
I love my sister. But she is a Rei-Ki master (Japanese Buddhist shamanism). She
uses demonic powers. When she tries to bless me with her powers, I know it and
have to clean those demons she sent off me. When I pray divine blessings for
her, it really jams up her ability to practice. It could harm her health, too,
since she won't give it up. The only difference between angels and demons is
their political affiliation, but that makes all the difference in the world (and
A woman came in with her husband. She was a fully committed Christian, but she
said her husband still dealt with some of the New Age practices they had come
out of. She had nightmares nightly. She had an amazing number of medical
problems with all systems starting to break down.
My partner & I started to pray for her. Nothing seemed to be helping. I
asked the Lord what was going on and he said the husband was using demonic
powers on her. He loved her and wanted her well, but he didn't understand the
profound difference between the divine and the demonic. What to do? I offered
for him, the "head of the house", to pray for her, while we would lay
hands on him and "pray through him." So while he was praying to God on
her behalf, I was praying deliverance for him and his property under my breath!
She received great relief from that time.
Eight months later, I was visiting another regional exorcist with one of my
clients, when they came in. When she came forward, she had been grateful for the
reprieve, but it all started to come back again. We did what we could for her,
but this other exorcist didn't want to involve the husband, so he sent them away
without any relief. I doubt she is alive today -- killed by the demonic kindness
of her loving husband.
Retaliatory spirits as an obstacle.
Powers and Principalities have more sophisticated defenses than the normal
demon. One of them is what I call retaliatory spirits. If you kick one of these
p&p's in the shins, suddenly you have a swarm of spiritual hornets coming
If you suspect your exorcism target is really big, go after any retaliatory
spirits FIRST. The rest becomes an easy target.
If you find out too late and the swarm is already buzzing around you, what to
I ran across that problem several years ago, when a woman wanted us to pray for
salvation for her sister who worked for a law firm in Boston. I started praying
for her, but there was a stronghold over the law firm. I started binding demons
on them, but there was a stronghold over that part of Boston. I started binding
demons on them, and I was in the thick of it. I turned to a prayer minister and
told her to pray protection for me. I then used a hiding prayer. Then I busted
those stupid retaliatory spirits. Then I went after that p&p and disabled
it. Then I went down the next level and disabled it. Then I bound any spirits of
blindness, deafness, confusion and scrambling over the sister and prayed for God
to speak truth to her. Then I said thanks to the other prayer minister. Mission
Those retaliatory spirits can be nasty. I recall the story of a missionary who
told his followers to cut down a tree that had been charmed for centuries. When
it fell, he fell dead shortly thereafter.
When the occultists attack a Christian, they will often use their low hierarchy
people to do it. If the Christian knows anything about deliverance, the LHP's
will be disabled, but the hierarchy will immediately pump them back up and send
them back into the fray, so it looks like deliverance didn't work. Maybe the
Christian will abandon deliverance....
There needs to be a more extensive deliverance to shut them down. I target
"those who work or conspire to influence us", so as to get the LHP's
and their supervisors. I bless these same people and their property to
contaminate them with holiness.
I refer to "influence" because occasionally you can end up with some
Buddhist or shaman who demonically blesses us or influences us, thinking they
are doing us a favor! Not!
Low level attack
If the occultists can't keep us down with a heavy curse, hex or spell, the next
tactic they will try is a bunch of low level attacks. Would you think you were
under attack if you felt depressed one morning, your phone stopped working, your
kids were crabby, your computer 'acted up', traffic on the road started doing
dangerous things toward you, your back started aching, etc.?
It might not be demonic, but then again, maybe it is. Deliverance is an easy fix
if any of these have a demonic origin. But if you just think "That's
life", they have handicapped an exorcist with demons!
As a church sound man, I learned that when the sound board started acting up
before or during a service, quietly pray deliverance over it before reaching for
a screw driver. Often, that solved the problem.
class action curses
I met a prayer minister who was feeling oppressed, had done deliverance, but
wasn't getting relief. I prayed for her, asking Jesus to teach me what to pray.
Jesus told me it was on her family, not her individually. I bound it off her
family and she was immediately free. I asked her to check up with the family.
The next week, she came back that her daughter had angered a witch in high
school. She had felt oppression and cleaned herself up, but hadn't cleaned up
the curse on the family!
Sometimes we can end up under attack on a group level, that needs to be broken
as a group. If you don't know what group is under attack, just pray deliverance
for "myself and all groups that I am part of." Then you can pray
deliverance for "those working or conspiring against us."
I remember the first time I ran up against this. I prayed for a client and his
problem, followed by deliverance since prayer wasn't having effect. The
deliverance gave him healing. He and I both saw it.
The next week, he was back with the same complaint. I asked him what was wrong
and he said, "It didn't work!" What? I asked him what happened. He
said that he felt great after seeing us, but late that night "it all came
I asked the Lord what was going on. He told me an occultist and I were playing
ping pong with this fellow; I was fixing him up and the occultist was knocking
him back down. (repeated attacks)
From then on, whenever I delivered someone, I delivered anyone who worked or
conspired against them and prayed for their salvation. I got a reputation among
the prayer ministers that if I prayed for someone, they stayed prayed for! (I
know, theologically that's all wrong, but you get the idea.)
And a lot more things as well. In fact I had a Reiki master give me a ten
dollar bill as a donation to a group putting on a seminar. I put it in my breast
pocket for the duration, since the seminar had already started. After five
minutes, I was confused, depressed and getting weak. The Lord pointed out the
tenner, which I took out of my pocket. I quickly recovered. At the end of the
seminar, I walked over and dropped the tenner in front of her, saying we weren't
taking contributions. As I walked out the door, she was calling my name louder
& louder. Too bad; she was stuck with it!
I realized later that I shouldn't have been spiteful like that; the charmed
tenner went into circulation!
The Buddhists, Hindus, New Agers, shamans and witches all "bless"
"mother earth". In Christian terminology, they are pumping demons into
the ground. This accumulation of demons influence people on the surface. They
adversely affect Christians, of course. Deliverance for the Christians and their
properties doesn't stop the adverse effect. For unbelievers, it makes them
resistant to the gospel.
"We have not because we ask not" with regard to deliverances as well
as prayers. On the back of my business card for the Order of Saint Patrick, part
of my protection prayer says, "In the name of Jesus Christ, by the power of
His cross and blood, we bind the spirits, powers and forces of the earth, the
underground, the air, the water, the fire, the netherworld and the satanic
forces of nature." Covers a lot of things you don't normally pray for,
