QUESTIONS BEFORE DELIVERANCE

If you can answer the following questions then you maybe ready for deliverance.

1.    Are you a Christian? Are you a born-again believer who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? Have you repented of your sins and turned your life over to Jesus? John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—This means that unless you give your life entirely to Jesus, you cannot claim your birthright as a child of God.

Deliverance is only meant for believers. Salvation is a covenant with benefits to those within that covenant. Jesus is the healer and deliverer. Those expecting healing from him must have a birthright relationship with him to maintain or claim the healing or the freedom. Otherwise the situation could be worse for the person after deliverance than before. Because the presence of the Holy Spirit is necessary to keeping and maintaining deliverance. Healing and deliverance is children's bread. Matthew 15:26 He replied, "It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs."

2.  Are you willing to give up your sinful habits and sinful lifestyle, and do everything necessary to receive and maintain your deliverance?  Any area of your life that is not fully submitted or yielded to the HolySpirit will be an open door to the devil and you must be willing to close those doors and forsake them; otherwise, the demons will come back into your life without a fight.  Jesus told the woman caught in adultery that she was forgiven of her sin but she could no longer live in that sin.
John 8:11 "No one, Lord," she answered. "Neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Now go and sin no more."

3.  Are you willing to pursue the spiritual disciplines necessary to have a closer walk with Jesus. Spending time with Jesus in prayer daily , studying the Bible and learning to obey it ?
 Disciplining yourself for the purpose of godliness.”
1 Timothy 4:7 
Spiritual Disciplines are habits and patterns of devotion. Spiritual Disciplines are things a disciple of Jesus Christ does within the context of his relationship with Christ to become more like Christ. Many people want quick fixes from Jesus and they don’t want to meet the conditions. There is no short cuts with God.

4.  You must meditate on Bible verses daily to fight off the strongholds of the assailing thoughts ? Meditation is internalizing the scripture until your soul is fully bathed and drowned in it. Until it becomes the living word in you. “living” means that it has a vital power.  It has the ability to bring forth more life abundantly. Jesus spoke of the life-giving property of His words: “The words I have spoken to you they are full of the Spirit and life” (John 6:63).
Meditating on Scripture makes the word of God alive in us, and using the living word  to fight the enemy is a very effective strategy of warfare.

 5. Are you willing to communicate everything in your past transparently and honestly to the deliverance minister ? It is important to communicate everything from your past. So that the minister can identify all the areas that the enemy has gained a foothold in your life. Then, when he enters into prayer, he can come against every area the enemy has attacked you on, and nothing will be left undone.

6.   If you enjoy your sin or habit, and you are not willing to give it up, then it is better not to get deliverance because demons will quickly claim their home as soon as you get delivered. 

 

 PRAYER BEFORE DELIVERANCE
 

Dear Father God, in the name of JESUS 

According to Romans 10:9
I confess with my lips that JESUS is Lord and in my heart I believe that You raised him from the dead. According to Luke 13:3 I repent of my past sins and I admit and confess that I have sinned (name) and I believe that You are faithful and just to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I call upon You, Lord JESUS to cleanse me from all sin and unrighteousness by Your Blood (1 John 1:7). And as Your word says in Romans 10:13 Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.

I confess, repent and ask forgiveness of occult practices such as (witchcraft, fortune telling, horoscopes, astrology.

I renounce all occult practices and break all curses associated with those occult practices. According to Galatians 3:13 Christ purchased our freedom redeeming us  from the curse of the Law and its condemnation by Himself becoming a curse for us, for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree is crucified; Deut. 21:23.

I confess, repent, and ask forgiveness of all sins listed in Deuteronomy 27 and 28 and break the curses associated with these sins.

I confess, repent and ask forgiveness of my iniquities and my fathers' iniquities according to Leviticus 26:40 and I break the curses associated with these iniquities.

I break and loose myself from all evil soul ties with my mother, father, brother, sisters, spouses, former spouses, former sex partners,
JESUS I forgive my mother, father, brothers sisters and anyone else who has ever hurt me. 

I break and loose myself and my family from all curses that have been and are being placed upon me and my family: curses of witchcraft, physic thoughts or prayers, ungodly intercessory prayers, and words spoken in anger and I return these curses to the sender(s) sevenfold and bind them upon them by the blood of JESUS. In JESUS Name, Amen
