As I said last time, a few years back I was under tremendous demonic attack. There had been promptings and suggestions of suicide, anxiety-provoking lies that I was Hell bound, and harassing evil spirits. After months of battle, I was tired of the daily fight. I asked my pastor friend Ed to come over to pray with me.
After praying in tongues for a short time, Ed informed me that he was going to try casting a demon out of me. He had never done that before, but I trusted him. And I was desperate for help.
Ed stood in front of me and forcefully spoke, “Because of Jesus Christ whose I am and whom I serve, you demon, you come out of her. You lying, cursing demon, come out now! In the name and power of Jesus Christ, you must come out. Don’t resist and don’t delay. Just get out!”
My eyelids began to flutter like moth wings. I wasn’t in pain, but I was distraught. I exclaimed, “Something’s wrong with my eyes! I can’t see!”
Ed was unmoved by my condition and sat me down on the floor. He continued, “You are not authorized to be in there. You cannot resist the Word of God or the power of God, and you cannot violate the command. She is washed in the blood of Christ and you have no authority over her. You are not welcome, you cannot come back, and you have no power to return. You can’t stay in this house either. Get out of this house. So be it by the Word of God.”
As Ed exercised his authority in Christ, my ears burned hot and I felt something inside me travel upward from my abdomen through my chest and come out of my mouth like a puff of air or smoke.
When Ed finished his command, he praised God for providing us with His power. Then he said to me, “The kingdom of Heaven is here on earth and the power of God is available. Jesus said in John 14:12, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.’”
That is exactly what we experienced that day. If you or someone you know needs deliverance, don’t be afraid to exercise your authority in Christ!
Peace to you,
