7 tips to maintaining your deliverance

ANYONE who goes through a wholesome deliverance will feel a total release from Satan’s chains.

 

The yokes of  oppression have been loosened too, every excessive baggage rolled off  your shoulders and you feel light!

 

It is now time, not to relax, but to take the next step to sustain your deliverance.

 

These seven tips will help you keep safe from relapsing, which is a common thing in the ministry of deliverance.

 

Remember, it is much easier to kick out demons than to keep them from returning!

 

Mathew 12: 43-45 says, When an impure spirit comes out of a person it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it.

 

Then it says I will return to the house I left, when it arrives and finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order, it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself and they go in and live there, and the final condition of that person is worse than the first.

 

That’s is how it will be with this wicked generation.

 

State of relapse

 

Demons once kicked out during deliverance, will leave.

 

They go looking around for a place to enter, but finding none, will return to “see if their former house is unoccupied.”

 

If they find it empty, the whole purpose of your deliverance is scuttled.

 

They will come in with 7 other spirits worse, than the one who was kicked out and the Bible teaches that the state of relapse is often worse than the former.

 

In order to keep “your house” occupied and safe, from returning demons and to savour the victory and freedom of your wholesome deliverance  remember  that;

 

1.The battle has escalated

 

Since you have become more knowledgeable about spiritual warfare after your deliverance, and Satan knows it, it means  you will have to fight at another level from now on.

 

The battle is in the mind!

 

It will require a mind-set change.

 

You have been used to defeat and lack and so your mind and words are programmed that way. You now need to be transformed by renewing your mind and charting a new life path with your words.

 

Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform to the patterns of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, then you will be able to test and approve what Gods will is: His good, pleasing and perfect will.”

 

As a man thinks so is he (Proverbs 23:7). Chart a new life path through your mind and the words you speak words “Let the weak say I am strong Let the poor say I am rich!” Choose positive words of faith.

 

The battle has increased, yes,  but you also have received more grace to win and to walk in dominion and authority. Luke 10 :19I give you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy, nothing will harm you.”

 

2.You cannot live the way you used to before deliverance

 

As Satan’s tactics have advanced, you can no longer live the way you used to before deliverance!

 

You are now under new management, you can now not use the same tactics, the same patterns, old formulas which lead to defeat.

 

Simply put you cannot live as before as you are “now under new management.”

 

James 4:7Submit yourselves then to God, resist the devil  and he will flee from you.

 

John 10:27My sheep listen to my voice, I know them and they follow me.”

 

Ask the Lord to reveal to you the nature of the battle and the tactics to use.

 

Some of the toughest temptations come after deliverance.

 

3.The need to feed on the word

 

The word is a treasure to be discovered.

 

Mathew 13:44The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, when a man found it, he hid  again and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.”

 

Fall in love with the bible- God’s voice.

 

Hear it. Romans 10:17Consequently faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”

 

Read it.

 

Revelation 1:3Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart was is written in it, because the time is near.”

 

Study it.

 

Acts 17:11Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.”

 

Memorise it, meditate on it.

 

Joshua 1:8Keep this book of the law always o your lips, meditate on it day and night so that you will be careful to do everything written in it, then you will be prosperous ad successful.”’

 

 

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of Gods is alive and active sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to the dividing of soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

 

Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp unto my feet, a light to my path.”

 

Psalm 119: 130 “The unfolding of your word gives light, it gives understanding to the simple.

 

Jeremiah 23:29 “ Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces.”

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17  “ All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

 

3. To pray authoritatively

 

After deliverance, your position has changed. Begin to introduce new vocabulary(active verbs) into your prayers, something like;

“ I take authority over the spirt of…by the power of the Holy Spirit!”

 

“I silence voices of ….in Jesus mighty name!”

 

“I dry up your roots by the power of the Holy Spirit!”

 

“I send the thunder fire of the Holy Ghost to destroy….!”

 

“I smash the altar of…. with the rock of ages, in Jesus mighty name!”

 

“I put on the armour of God and I stand in Jesus name!”

 

Be bold in your prayer and command evil spirit(s) to leave in the name of Jesus Christ!

 

5. Prayer and fasting

 

Fast when things are serious.

 

It is a heart issue.

 

In Nineveh they even made animals to fast! Fasting helps you to be alert in the spirit. Prayer and fasting are a combination needed for “the kind” of battle you face after your deliverance.

 

It’s the need that calls for the affliction of our body and the determination to hear from God.

 

Mark 9:29. He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer and fasting.”

 

Jonah 3:7This is the proclamation issued in Nineveh, the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals , herds of flock taste anything, do not let them eat or drink.”

 

Nehemiah 1:4When I heard these things, I sat down and wept for some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.

 

 Joel 2:12Even now, declares the Lord return to me with all your heart with fasting and weeping and mourning.”

 

6. Beware of the stronghold

 

The spirit that was kicked out during your deliverance is the stronghold.

 

It is the point of weakness that Satan formerly used to defeat you. He would want to use it again in the return course!

 

You are going to get rid of old ungodly habits which are usually barrier to growth.

 

Old friends will pull you down. Beware of ex-girlfriends/boyfriends too. They form ungodly soul ties demons will use in their return path.

 

Luke 8:14The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go their way, they are choked by life’s worries , riches and pleasures and they do not mature.”

 

7. Avoid sin

 

Sin unconfessed gives Satan legal ground to attack you.

 

Isaiah 59:2But your iniquities have separated you from your God, your sins have hidden His face from you so that He will not hear.”

 

Confess your sins to God and to one another.

 

James 5 :16  “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray to each others that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

 

John 5:14Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, see you are well again, stop sinning or so.”

 

These seven points, if adhered to strictly, will help you  maintain your deliverance.
