DELIVERANCE – CLEANSING FROM INIQUITY

Dec 1, 2023

Satan knows the spiritual world is driven by laws which most believers do not understand. Therefore he takes advantage of our ignorance. Even though God is touched by the feelings of our infirmity, He is regulated by His Word. (Psalm 138:2)

John 14:30-31[30] I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.

Satan uses only something that he has found in us against us. So if he finds sin in us, he has a legal basis to attack us. So don’t live a life of compromise. Sin must be repented off and completely turned away from.

God has shown us His love by giving us His laws to regulate and protect us, not to limit our liberty. You cannot have what belongs to Satan and walk in complete liberty or yield complete authority over him.

1 Samuel 15:23

If you believe in God for deliverance yet live in rebellion, you are in trouble. Rebellion is synonymous with witchcraft which is empowered by wickedness and Iniquity. It is possible to fast and pray yet you are living in rebellion. You must desist from rebellion and allow your life to come under the governance of God.

Numbers 23:21 “He has not observed iniquity in Jacob, nor has He seen wickedness in Israel. The Lord his God is with him, And the shout of a King is Among them.

When there is nothing, Satan can attach himself to, then nothing can happen to you. God has given us all authority against him but to exercise it, your life must be right with God. That’s why you must check yourself before you engage in spiritual warfare to make sure you have nothing That belongs to Satan. (Ephesians 4:27)

Isaiah 6:6-7 [6]Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. [7] And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.”

In deliverance, the cleansing of our lives is most important; some of these things we are aware of and some not. For some of them, our parents got us into it and they became covenants that carry on through the bloodline.

God is a God of generations (2 Timothy 1:5); all truth is parallel, if it’s true in the positive then it’s also true in the negative. God’s forgiveness goes to thousands of generations but someone has to stand And own it up. (Exodus 34:7)

Jesus showed up six hundred years later to deal with a sin Adam committed. God’s help is available but we have to be honest. The devil doesn’t care whether you are a man or woman of God, he will show up unless the sin is dealt with.

Mark 1:22-28

Jesus came with authority; this is what will dispel our lives. It is possible to do business and ministry as the Sadducees and Pharisees who never lived what they taught and therefore never had authority.

It is the Holy Ones who will exercise authority. You may tell the devil how you will bury and consume him into dust. These are nice words but in reality, nothing will happen. Let us stop wasting time, let’s get our lives right then we can yield authority.

Luke 11:14 (AMPC) Now Jesus was driving out a demon that was dumb; and it occurred that when the demon had gone out, the dumb man spoke. And the crowds marveled.

Luke 13:11-12 (AMPC) And there was a woman there who for eighteen years had had an infirmity caused by a spirit (a demon of sickness). [12] And when Jesus saw her, He called [her to Him] and said to her, Woman, you are released from your infirmity! 13 Then He laid [His] hands on her, and instantly she was made straight, and she recognized and thanked and praised God.

The moment you align your life, some spirits will come out without you saying ‘ get out’ because there is no more ambience that permits them to stay around.

The demon stopping the young man from speaking was a dump demon and so was the sick woman. Not everything is demonic but certain things are; if there is a demon of poverty it will produce poverty.

If you have done everything scientifically, biologically, or medically and it is not working, chances are you are dealing with a spirit that is oppressing you.

Malachi 3:1-2 “Behold, I send my messenger, And he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord, whom You seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the messenger of the covenant, In whom you delight. behold, He is coming,” Says the Lord of hosts. [2] “But who can endure the day of His coming? and who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launders’ soap.

When the Messenger shows up, he comes to purify and clean.

Before we release the fire that burns demons, we must release cleansing (Isaiah 6:6-7). This is called the Holy fire; the fire of separation which separates us from the iniquities of yesterday and burns the fingerprint of the enemy of our lives (The Refiner’s Fire).

 We must ask for the refiner’s fire to purify and burn every iniquity and purge our sin.

The Refiner’s fire will take away every iniquity and purge your sin. The Lord Will fight for you but He Will first cleanse You. (Malachi 3:1-5)
