This article will be serving as another follow-up to my article titled, “4 Levels of Spiritual Warfare Against Demonic Spirits.” If by chance you have come across this article before reading the above article, it would be my recommendation that you first read that article so you will know exactly what I am talking about in this article.
In the area of having to deal direct with demonic spirits, you have one of two basic strategies to try and take against them if they have launched any kind of a direct attack against either you or anyone else you may know.
- If demons are personally attacking you, whether it be from an outside position or from the inside of your being, you can either attempt to do battle directly against them all on your own by way of a self-deliverance – or you can seek the services of another anointed minister who really knows how to do an actual deliverance to help you through it.
- If you know someone else who has demons attacking them, and they do not have the knowledge or boldness to be able to deal directly with the demons on their own, then again, you have one of two possible options. You can either attempt to cast the demons off your friend all on your own – or you can seek the services of an anointed minister who will know how to do an actual deliverance.
In some of these cases, you can attempt to do a self-deliverance for yourself if they are attempting to attack you direct, or you can do it for another friend or family member if they are too afraid to do it for themselves. We have several good cases in the Testimonies and Spiritual Warfare section of our site of people taking on demons all by themselves and successfully being able to cast them off them.
All Christians have the Holy Spirit on the inside of them, and they thus have His supernatural power available to them to be able to directly engage with any demonic spirits who may be attacking them. Demons are actually cast out of people by the power of the Holy Spirit.
But though we have God’s power available to us through the Holy Spirit to be able to directly engage and defeat any demonic spirits who may attempt to come against us, we still need some basic working knowledge in this area before we can directly engage with them. You can give a soldier a gun, but if you do not show him how to actually use the gun, it will be of no use for him if he is ever faced with a real life battle situation where he will actually have to try and use it.
We have God’s power and anointing available to us through the Holy Spirit, but we still have to learn how to use that power, especially in the area of spiritual warfare. There are rules to any game, and the war games that are being played in the spiritual realm with demons are no exceptions.
The more knowledge and understanding you have on how to actually play this spiritual war game, the better equipped you will be to actually engage with any demons. Many Christians do not have good, basic, working knowledge on exactly how to deal directly with demonic spirits because many of the churches are still too afraid to talk about it and deal with the actual reality of it.
As a result, you have some in the flock who are getting torn apart by these demons in their personal lives and they are too afraid to tell anyone about it for fear they will not believed.
Many pastors are either too afraid or too apathetic to try and learn how to do this for themselves, as they either have their own fears of dealing direct with demonic spirits, or they have a more liberal point of view where they do not think demons really have that much of an active role in most people’s lives today. As a result, Satan and his horde of demons are getting away with pure, cold-blooded murder and mayhem among many in the Body of Christ.
God has already told us in His Word that His people will perish and go into captivity for having lack of knowledge in certain areas. And the area of having to deal direct with demonic spirits is definitely one of those areas where people are going into some type of captivity, or actually perishing as a result of not knowing how to directly deal with the demonic forces that have invaded their lives.
All you have to do is watch the daily local news to see how active Satan and his demons really are in the world today. So many people are coming under direct demonic influence to do some of the horrible things they end up doing. And in most of these cases, they have no idea that demons are really operating behind the scenes trying to get them to do the horrible acts they end up committing.
These people are sheep being led right into major slaughterhouses – and this is all because they do not have good, basic, fundamental knowledge of the war games that are being played out behind the scenes in the spiritual realm. Or if they did, they would not know how to directly engage with these dark demonic forces as a true, good, soldier of Jesus Christ.
In this article, I want to deal with one specific battle strategy that you can use if demons have either invaded your own personal life or someone else you may know. Though the Bible tells us that God wants all of His people to learn how to become good soldiers of Jesus Christ and learn how to engage with the enemy – whether that enemy be human or demonic – the real reality is that many Christians are never going to learn how to actually do this.
The reason being is they are either too afraid, too apathetic, or too caught up in the world to even care enough to want to learn how to do it. With many in the Body of Christ falling into this apathetic or fearful camp, we have a major shortage of Christians who really know how to directly engage with demonic spirits once they launch an all-out, full scale attack on someone and their life.
Bottom line – if you are too afraid and not confident enough in your own knowledge base in the Lord to actually be able to directly engage with any demons who may either be attacking you or someone else you may know – then what you can do next is to move into this particular battle strategy where you will then seek to find a good deliverance minister who will know how to get the job done for you.
I simply cannot stress enough how powerful this particular battle strategy is – and how effective and successful it will be if you will spend some good quality time seeking and searching for a good deliverance minister who will know how to get the job done for you if you feel that you cannot do it for yourself or for a close friend or family member.
When demons are attacking someone from an outside position, which is from the outside of their body, it is much easier to deal with them and drive them off them as versus when they have actually entered in the person’s body and have become deeply entrenched in there. If a person has given demons the full legal rights to actually enter in on the inside of them such as delving into different areas of the occult, you are going to have a much tougher battle casting them out as versus if they are just attacking you from the “air” outside of your body.
The revelation that I want you to take away from this article is that God Almighty Himself is personally raising up more of His good soldiers to be able to do actual deliverances – especially on some of the heavier inside cases where demons are more deeply entrenched on the inside of someone’s body.
What this means is that there is help and deliverance out there for you if you will be willing to seek and search for these anointed soldiers who will know how to get the job done for you. Some of these soldiers will be more anointed and skilled in this area than others will. Sometimes you may have to try several of them out to find the one who will have the anointing, the knowledge, and the expertise to be able to get the job fully done for you.
The Battle Strategy of Looking For a Good Deliverance Minister
Here are 8 basic common sense steps you can take on your end to try and find a good deliverance minister who will know how to get the job done for you with a complete victory and deliverance.
Though all of these steps are very simple and very basic common sense steps, what I have found from personal experience is that many Christians have never thought deep enough or hard enough to try and take any of these actual steps. As a result, either they or someone else they may know who is battling these demons, will continue to remain under major bondage from these demons.
Again, there is major help and deliverance out there for you if you will just spend some good quality time seeking to find that one, good, Christian soldier who will have the knowledge and the anointing to be able to get the job done for you.
1. Have the Boldness and Courage to Take the Assignment On
The first thing you will need to do is to first determine if you think you really have demons attacking either you or someone else you know. We have another article in our site titled, “What are the Signs of Demonization.” This article will help give you the vital information you will need so you can determine whether or not it really is demons who are attacking someone you may be trying to help.
Once you have determined that the source of the problem is really demonic, then the first major step you will need to take is to make sure you have the boldness and courage to take this deliverance assignment on. And this is exactly what this will be – a deliverance assignment direct from the Lord Himself, whether it be directly for yourself or someone else you may be helping.
The reason you will need boldness and courage is because of the criticism and ridicule you may get from others, which will include other Christians who do not have much knowledge and understanding of this part of the walk with the Lord.
Many psychologists, psychiatrists, and medical doctors are in the secular camp, and they will all have a very hard time in believing that demons are really causing some of the mental problems someone may be having. Your friends, your family, the medical community, other Christians, and possibly even the pastor of your own church may try and dissuade you from seeking out this course of action, telling you that drugs and psychological treatment will work much better, and that you do not need to try this more extreme approach.
But if you have a strong conviction in your heart from the Holy Spirit that what you are dealing with is definitely demonic, then I would draw your battle line in the sand, set your face like flint, and summon up the boldness and courage to take this deliverance assignment on – whether it be directly for yourself or someone else you are wanting to help – and proceed forward with the intentions that you will find someone who is anointed and knowledgeable enough in this area who will be able to get the job done for you with a complete victory and deliverance.
2. Ask The Lord to Lead You to the Right Deliverance Minister
Once you have received a good release from the Holy Spirit to be taking on this kind of heavier deliverance assignment, then the next step would be to go direct to God the Father in prayer and ask Him to lead you by His Holy Spirit to the deliverance minister that He will want you to work with.
God knows the exact person you will need to make direct contact with, and He will know exactly how to lead you to be able to find this person. If you try and find this person all on your own without first asking God to help guide you, you could end up trying to find a needle in a haystack due to all of the different churches and denominations that are out there.
If God is in the business of raising up these mighty deliverance warriors, then He will make sure to lead you to the one that He will want you to work with – whether it be for yourself or someone else that you are helping.
3. Plead the Blood of Jesus On You and Everyone Involved For Protection
I do not want to scare you with this next part, but it will be much better to be safe than sorry on this next step. This next step will entail that you plead the Blood of Jesus on you, on the one who will need the deliverance if it is not yourself, and on anyone else who may be working with you to set up this deliverance.
The reason being is that the demons, once they see that you are going to try to find help and deliverance for someone they are attacking, will try and stop you from doing it if they can get away with it. In the Spiritual Warfare section of our site, we have an article titled, “How to Plead the Blood of Jesus for Deliverance and Protection.”
It would be my strong recommendation that you plead the Blood of Jesus as instructed in that article to give you a full protective covering from any possible attacks from these demons. Once you go into this kind of a deliverance mission, you are stepping out into a real, live, spiritual battlefield and you will need God’s full protection on you to be able to tread safely through this battlefield.
In that same section, we also have an article titled, “Battle Verses of the Bible.” Feel free to take any of the battle verses in that article and incorporate those verses into the battle prayer where you will plead the Blood of Jesus on you for His divine protection. Quote these battle verses back to the Lord and tell Him that you are going to stand firm and strong on the promises of these verses.
Here is sample type battle prayer you can pray on you incorporating all of the above in it. I am going to use the example that you are seeking a deliverance minister for someone else you may know who has demons attacking them. What you will be doing is pleading the Blood of Jesus on your own body, soul, spirit, your house, your car, the person who will need the deliverance, and anyone else who will be helping you to set up the deliverance.
Both your body, house, and car could be subject to possible demonic attacks. By pleading the Blood of Jesus over both yourself, your house, and your car, you will go a long way in keeping yourself properly protected from any demons who may try to stop you from getting this deliverance.
Here is a good, sample, battle prayer you can use to get God’s full protection on you before you step out onto the battlefield to try and find an anointed deliverance minister to help deliver you or someone else you may be helping:
In the name of Jesus, I now approach Your throne of grace with a very special request. Father, in Jesus name, I come before you on behalf of my friend Robert. I believe that my friend Robert has demons operating on the inside of him.
I do not believe Robert has the courage, the boldness, or the knowledge to be able to cast these demons out of himself. I believe these demons are deeply entrenched on the inside of him due to the legal rights he has given them.
Father, Robert wants to be fully delivered from these demons, but neither he nor myself feel we have the appropriate knowledge to deal with this kind of a heavier case. We know that You have raised up other good soldiers in Jesus Christ to be able to do this kind of a heavier deliverance for us.
Father, in Jesus name, I now ask that you take this deliverance case up for us and lead us to the anointed soldier who will be able to do this deliverance for us. Father, You know exactly who this person will be and how to lead us to be able to meet with them. Father, in Jesus name, I ask that You please lead us directly to this anointed soldier by Your Holy Spirit. From here on in, we will go into a major seeking mode to find this good anointed soldier.
Father, I know the demons who are attacking Robert may try and stop us from finding this person. Father, in Jesus name, I now want to take one more step to make sure that these demons cannot attack us in anyway.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I now plead the Blood of Your Son Jesus Christ over my body, over my soul, over my spirit, over my personal car, and over my entire house. I now plead the Blood of Jesus Christ against any demons who may attempt to attack either myself or Robert. I now plead the Blood of Jesus against any other people who may try and stop this deliverance from occurring.
Father, in Jesus name, I also plead the Blood of Jesus over Robert’s body, over Robert’s soul, and over Robert’s spirit – and I ask that you give the two of us perfect safe passage to where this anointed deliverance minister is located. I ask that you keep these demons from attacking us, our houses, our cars, or anyone else who may end up being involved in setting up this deliverance.
Father, I have full faith, trust, and belief in You that You will take up this battle for us and lead us to the person who will be able to set Robert completely free from these demons. Your Word has told us that Your Son Jesus has come to set the captives free. Father, in the name of Jesus, I ask that You set this captive free from these foul demons who are now holding him captive.
Thank You Father.
Thank You Jesus.”
This would be the basic gist of how to word this kind of prayer to God the Father.
As far as to how often and how long to stay with this kind of battle prayer, I would recommend that you do some semblance of this type of battle prayer on a weekly basis until you get the job done, since you are stepping out onto a real, live, spiritual battlefield between the forces of good and evil.
Just as a football player will never forget to put his helmet on every time he steps out onto the football field, in the same way you will need to apply your spiritual armor every single time you step out onto a real, live, spiritual battlefield.
4. Start With the Pastor of Your Own Church
In this area of spiritual warfare where you are dealing with a heavier case of demonic invasion, I believe that you should go through the proper chain-of-command in the Body to start out with. What this means is that you should first start out by approaching the pastor of your own church if you belong to a good local church.
God is raising up more of His pastors in this area of spiritual warfare. If your pastor knows how to do an actual deliverance, then you will not have to go into a major seeking mode to try and find someone else outside of your church. Your pastor, or one of his anointed assistants, should then be able to get the job done for you.
If however your pastor will not or cannot do this for you for whatever his personal reasons may be, then I would ask him if he knows of anyone else in his congregation who is knowledgeable and anointed enough to be able to do this for you.
If he does not know of anyone else within his church, then I would ask him if he knows of anyone from another church who will know how to do a deliverance. If he does not know of anyone else from any other churches in your area, then you will now have to move to the next step.
5. Make a List and Call All of the Other Churches in Your Area
If the pastor of your church cannot or will not help you with a deliverance, then your next step will be to get on the internet and/or in your local phone book and make a list of all of the main, non-denominational and charismatic churches in your area.
I would first start off with some of the more main, non-denominational and charismatic type churches as versus some of the more traditional ones, since they are more open to operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and operating in the supernatural realm with the Lord. Some of the older, more traditional churches will not be as open to this kind of heavier supernatural activity with the Lord as some of the more non-denominational and charismatic churches will be.
After you make a list of all of the available churches in your area, then I would start calling each one of them and talk with either the pastor himself or one of his assistants. Explain your problem to them and then ask them if they know how to do an actual deliverance. If they do, then ask them if you can make an appointment to meet with them in person so you can bring the person who will need the deliverance if it is not yourself needing the deliverance.
If they cannot or will not do any type of deliverance work for you, then ask them if they know of anyone else, either in their own church, or anyone else from another church who could get the job done for you.
If no luck with any of those options, then call the next one on the list, and keep calling until you find someone who knows how to do one and who will be willing to meet with you to actually give it a try.
6. Keep Trying Until You Find the Minister Who Can Get the Job Done For You
Depending on where you may live at, you may have to go into a major seeking mode to find the right person who will be able to get the job done for you. But do not give up – no matter how long it takes!
If you have turned this matter over to the Lord, and you have a good release from the Holy Spirit to be going on this kind of seeking journey, keep at it until you find the person the Lord will want you to work with. Sooner or later, you will find the right person who will be anointed enough and knowledgeable enough to be able to take on your heavier case.
7. Ask All of Your Other Christian Friends
Another good source will be all of the Christian friends and acquaintances you may have. One or two of them may know someone from another church or from another denomination that will know how to do this for you. All it will take is one person to lead you to that right person. Leave no stone unturned in your seeking of this anointed deliverance minister.
8. Be Open and Sensitive to Any Specific Leadings From the Holy Spirit
Once you embark on this seeking journey to find a good, anointed, deliverance minister, make sure you always keep your radars up and keep yourself open and sensitive to any specific leadings that you may receive from the Holy Spirit.
If you find any churches “jumping off the page” at you as you are browsing through the internet and local phone book, make sure that you mark those ones down and call the pastors at those churches. The Holy Spirit could possibly “quicken” the church to you that will have the minister who will be able to get the job done for you.
The following testimony is one that occurred through our ministry about 2 years ago. This testimony is a perfect example of a woman who did most of the above steps, and was able to get her roommate fully delivered from some really nasty demons that had entered on the inside of her body as a result of her direct involvement with an area of the occult.
This was a very heavy demonic case as you will see as I recount exactly what had occurred between the two of us and her roommate.
1. I had received a personal email through our website from a woman who lived on the West Coast. She wrote in pleading for help with an extreme emergency situation that she was dealing with.
Long story short, she had a roommate who was a Mexican woman. This Mexican woman had drawn demons on the inside of her as a direct result of being involved in some type of white occult magic. Her roommate was a born-again Christian, but she apparently had drawn the demons into her as a result of continuing to engage in this occult activity.
In certain areas of the occult, demons will try to play good cop and bad cop, and try to convince you that there is a good type of white magic as versus a bad type of black magic. But the white magic is just as deadly and just as much of an abomination before the Lord as the black magic is. There is no difference in the eyes of the Lord with all of this. Any supernatural powers you receive from experimenting with any form of white magic is all coming direct from demonic spirits and thus cannot be accepted in any way, shape, or form.
This woman had actually developed some psychic powers as a result of her continuing involvement in this area of the occult, with all of her psychic powers obviously coming from these demonic spirits. The mistake this woman had made was that she was trying to use this supernatural power for good, but what she did not realize was that the source of her supernatural powers was coming directly from demons, and it was only going to be a matter of time before these demons would move in for an all-out attack.
What had recently started to happen was that the demons were now starting to violently manifest in her. She said there were times her roommate was literally speaking out in a man’s voice. Her roommate was threatening to kill both herself and her roommate. The woman writing into us was not only scared for her own self, but she was also afraid for her friend’s life since she was also threatening to kill herself.
She had taken her friend into the hospital for some psychiatric testing, but they could not find anything medically wrong with her. She was sure that her roommate really had demons on the inside of her and that they were going do their best to try and kill the both of them.
2. The first thing she had asked me was whether or not I could draw up a special battle prayer like I had done with some of the other people in our Testimonies and Spiritual Warfare section of our site. She wanted to try and take the demons on herself.
However, after hearing all of the facts of her situation, I did not feel that was the wisest course to take. I did not feel she had the experience or the knowledge to be taking on this kind of an extra-heavy case. Her roommate had demons on the inside of her, and with these demons being directly linked to her involvement with the occult, there was a very good possibility that these demons were of a more evil and higher-ranking type in Satan’s hierarchy.
Many deliverance ministers have found from real, life, battle experiences with demons, that some of the more evil and stronger demons in Satan’s realm are those who are linked to the different areas of the occult. This is why it is so extremely dangerous for anyone to be dabbling or experimenting with any area of the occult.
After hearing how deeply entrenched these demons were on the inside of her friend, I knew the only possible solution to this problem was that she would have to seek out a good, anointed, deliverance minister in her area who would be able to do this deliverance for her.
3. The first thing I asked her was if she had tried to have the deliverance done by the pastor of her own church. She said that she had already tried that approach, but for whatever reason, her pastor was not able to cast the demons out of her friend.
I then told her that she would have to go into a major seeking mode to find a good, anointed, deliverance minister in her area that would be able to cast these demons out of her friend for good. I told her to check her into her local phone book and the internet and to start calling every good, non-denominational and charismatic church in her area. I told her to keep at it until she found the one that would be able to get the job done for her.
I also told her to make a list of the legal rights these demons were operating on so the deliverance minister would know exactly what he would have to deal with.
4. She then found a second deliverance minister, but he too was not able to get the job done. This particular minister then tried to solicit money from her and told her that her friend needed to see a psychiatrist when he could not get the job done for her. She left this minister with a very bad taste in her mouth with the way that he had personally handled this situation.
She then found a third minister through the internet, and this minister was the one who was able to get the job done for them. She wrote me back and stated that the deliverance was very dramatic and powerful. She said the demons finally left by way of her literally vomiting them out of her mouth, which is sometimes how they are expelled out of a person.
She said after the demons had been cast out of her friend, that her face was shining, and that a radiance and glow had emanated out of her face. This shining glow and emanation was the Holy Spirit Himself, who had moved up into her soul and filled her with His actual presence to let everyone know that the deliverance had been successful. She said her roommate felt the demons leave her and she knew they were no longer on the inside of her body.
5. What was so touching and powerful about this personal testimony was the fact that this woman’s roommate was willing to take up this deliverance assignment for her until she found the right minister who would be able to get the job done for her.
Many people might have given up on the first two attempts, but this woman did not! She was determined to find the right anointed minister who would be able to do get the job done for them and sure enough, God led them to the right minister!
As a result of this woman’s continued persistence, her friend ends up receiving a full and complete deliverance from some really evil demons. What this woman did for her roommate can be done by anyone of you if you are dealing with this same kind of predicament.
As I stated at the top of this article, some ministers will be more anointed and knowledgeable in this area than some other ones will. As a result, you may have to try more than one of them out if you have a heavier type of case like this one turned out to be.
Again, if either you or anyone else you know is battling attacks from real, live, demonic spirits, do not be afraid to seek out a good anointed minister to take a look at your case to see if this is what the real problem is. If the minister determines that you really are dealing with a true demonic attack, then he will be able to set either you, or someone else you may be helping, totally free from these demons. You do not have to continue to remain in bondage and under torment from these demons.
There are true, anointed, Christian soldiers out there who can help deliver either you or anyone else you may be helping if you are not confident and knowledgeable enough to try it on your own. Do not be afraid to admit your own shortcomings in this area. Seek – then and you will find the right anointed Christian minister who will be able to set you free.
Per our article, “Prayer Secret #5 – Ask, Seek, Knock,” this type of adverse situation is a perfect example where you will have to put all three of these conditions into actual operation.
You will first have to ask God to take this assignment up for you and lead you to the right minister who will be able to successfully cast these demons out of your life. You will then have to start seeking and knocking before you can find that right minister.
And if you continue to seek and knock like the woman did in the above testimony – you will eventually find that right deliverance minister who will then be able to set either you or your friend totally and completely free from these demons if you are willing to properly work with him during the deliverance process.
As we head further into end time waters, things are really going to heat up. Not only are we going to have to deal with wars and the rumors of wars, but we also going to have to put up with demons ramping up their attacks on both peoples and countries. And when demons move in on individual people, only the supernatural power of God is going to be able to set these people free.
As a result, God will be one step ahead of all this and He will have the right amount of good, anointed, Christian soldiers in place who will know how to deal with these direct demonic attacks. Your job will be to find who these people are and seek them out if either you or anyone else you may know comes under any kind of direct demonic attack.
Ask, seek, and knock – and the Lord will lead you to the right Christian soldier who will be able to set you free.
As a postscript to the above article:
Since the above article was written, we have come across a very good ministry that has healing and deliverance rooms located all across the United States, along with being in other countries across the world. Please go to our article on who this ministry is and how to make direct contact with them.
Many of these people are trained in the area of dealing with demons, and you thus may be able to find your deliverance at one of their healing rooms. Here is the direct link to this new article: “Healing and Deliverance Rooms Across the Country”
