Unfortunately, to the best of my understanding, when a person “chooses” to adopt a demonic belief system and actively invites (whether they know it or not) demons to inhabit them, your deliverance options are significantly challenged. This requires a LOT of dedication on the part of the “delivering” Christians because the method used to “get rid” of the demonic influences are challenged by the fact that the “host” (individual) is not helping the situation and is actually “inviting” the demons back (either actively or by virtue of ambivalence, ignorance and inaction).
This “Back and Forth” / “Intercession then More Intercession” challenge can go on for a very long time. And I am not aware of any guarantee of success. In almost every case that I have studied, the “demonically infested” individual reached a point where “they” wanted to be delivered. At that point, the Christian gains the advantage and can kick the demons out aggressively and assist that person in getting the Holy Spirit into them (to fill the gap).
Intercession Back and Forth
So basically here is how it works in a situation where the individual is demonically possessed (unwittingly, e.g. cults, New Age / spiritism, etc.) and YOU seek to deliver them but THEY dont’ see themselves as having a problem. (by the way I am dealing with this right now with one of my family members and it is very frustrating).
Pray Multiple Ways
Personally (I believe) it is best to pray multiple ways in this case. Jesus is your intercessor (Romans 8:34). He is your BEST FRIEND. He sits at the right hand of God the Father. Talk to him. Ask him for your help. In fact I personally like to address Jesus and The Heavenly Father both. Call me crazy, but I love them and see them both as spiritually part of my family and I am going to talk to them both like they ARE MY FAMILY. I dont’ see a difference in how I deal with my Heavenly family or earthly family if it is done with reverence, love, and respect.
TALK TO JESUS
Lord Jesus, our friend ___________, is involved in this demonic cult and we need to get her delivered. Nothing is beyond your reach. We need to get her out of this mess. Jesus please send your angels to help with this problem. We need every advantage we can get. We need to WAKE HER UP and help her understand how dangerous this is for her hopes of eternity.
(Note: This is a discussion more than a prayer. You are TALKING to your brother who is the KING of all the Universes. You are simply asking him for His help. Talk to HIM!! This is something you should be doing all day long every day anyway.)
REVERENTLY PRAY TO YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER
In the Name of Jesus, we need your help. Father, our friend __________ is messed up with this demonic cult. Father we need all the help we can get because she doesn’t understand how serious this is. Lord God, in the Name of Jesus, help us deliver her. Give us the strength and dedication to get her delivered. Empower us through your Holy Spirit, to cast the demons out. Give us the assistance of your Angels as you say in Psalm 91:11, to “give them charge over her”. Wake her up and give us the opportunity to deliver her and bring her into your Kingdom for your Son, –
In Jesus Name – Amen.
NEXT – CAST THEM OUT YOURSELF
(Focus your spiritual attention on HER “existence” (spirit / soul / body))
“Unclean Spirits” I COMMAND you in the Name of JESUS to LEAVE. You are commanded to GO NOW and NEVER COME BACK. I command you into the ABYSS. GO ….. NOW!!
IN JESUS NAME!! “
(Please Note: You are “KICKING A DOG” here. KICK HARD … GET THEM OUT!)
NEXT – PRAY FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO FILL THE GAP
Father, in the Name of Jesus, we ask you to fill ____________ with the Holy Spirit. Lord, in Jesus Name we pray you will fill the spiritual voids with your spiritual POWER and protection.
NEXT PRAISE GOD MIGHTILY
Praise you JESUS, Praise You Father … For you alone are worthy. Thank you JESUS for helping us get rid of this demonic infiltration into one of your children. PRAISE YOU LORDDDDDDD!!!
You will almost certainly have to repeat this process multiple times but there is hope. Here is the key. Once you “cast the demons out” they MUST leave her. The problem is “they can come back pretty quick” because she is not willing to get rid of them so her body becomes a “willing extension” to the demonic.
The trick here is you want to:
1. GET THE DEMONS OUT
(regularly, even daily – try every morning or evening during prayer time)
2. EDUCATE THEM
The belief here is that once you get the demons out (even for a little while) an opportunity opens up to get through to her. God’s power moves THROUGH US as “vessels” here on earth. We “call God’s power” to move through us (hence laying on of hands etc.). We PUSH the demons OUT of her for a little while and this gives God’s Angels and YOU (her friends) opportunity to WAKE HER UP when she is not fully affected by the demonic.
You are creating opportunities to “wake her up” by cleansing her against her will.
Ideas to Wake Her Up
This is arguably the single hardest part of this challenge. You basically are limited to 2 options. (If you think of more email me and let me know).
1. Love, caring, and very gentle loving tidbits (emails) of ideas planted to her. Subconscious nudging. This is hard. Be creative. It is best to do these “nice things” for her as soon after the prayer as possible (this is your opening).
2. Get her to read information about this group written by a good Christian organization. Educate her. Do your homework. DO NOT be reprimanding in your “tone”. Be LOVING and gentle at all times.
The Significance of This Threat
The “New Age” is especially dangerous because they do a very good job of creating “LOVE FORGERY”. They do not realize they are going “straight to Hell” and they radiate a lying sense of false love to their fellow practitioners. This is especially dangerous to Christianity because it uses Jesus’ strongest draw (attraction characteristic) in a deceptive way to “lure in” unwitting participants to the “ever-so-friendly and helpful” collective.
Summary and Warnings in Jesus Name
First and foremost I am not in the business of bellowing doctrine out to people with emphatic (and often misguided) certainty. I am a believer in HUMILITY. I accept no “contributions” and sell “no books”. The only reason I write articles for Tribulation-Now is because I really want to help people. If you believe you have a better formula for getting rid of demons then please start your own ministry and open up your own web site. We all need to unite in our cause to Cast Out Devils as Jesus told us to do.
Be advised that some deliverance ministries (which I am not one by the way), believe that there are certain special ways you must do things in order to not cause problems (etc.). It is MY BELIEF <======= (note) … that you do NOT MIX the OLD TESTAMENT teaching with the NEW TESTAMENT. It is my STRONG BELIEF this is a big mistake and does not give JESUS HIS PROPER RECOGNITION AND DUE.
That being said, if you want to put on a “Levitical Robe” and “shake Old Testament” fists in the air, GO AHEAD. If you believe in curses that move from family to family and all that stuff because you read it in the Old Testament, GO AHEAD. While these “things” do exist, the practices to deal with them are OLD < ==== hence the word OLD when combined with TESTAMENT. (Get it??) Old = Old. New = New!! The Old Testament provides much teaching and guidance and wisdom, but the POWER of Jesus Christ and the proper practices of KICKING OUT THE DEMON DOGS can only be found in the …
