Conditional Love

 

We have discovered in deliverance work that many believers are restricted or bound by demons from fully expressing or releasing outwardly the unconditional or “agape” love that abides in their regenerated spirit.  Through accepting and agreeing with thoughts and attitudes of the flesh, many have opened doors for unclean spirits who reinforce and establish restrictions of the expression of unconditional Christ-love.

At first, we treated Conditional Love as one spirit, but now understand it to be network or conglomerate of spirits working together to bind the victim to conditional love.  I Corinthians 13 gives clues to the individual spirits and their specific hindering work in a believer.  It is interesting to note in I Corinthians 13:1, 2 that a “baptized in the Spirit” believer is relative ineffective in Christian service until conditional love has been dealt with.  This is yet another confirmation of the correct scriptural order in Mark 16 of casting out demons first before speaking in tongues and moving into gifts.

The key to the weapons in I Corinthians 13 is to identify simply the antonyms for the various features and characteristics that are listed (a dictionary and thesaurus would be helpful).  Next, call them out in Jesus’ name as unclean spirits.

An important prerequisite to deliverance in this area is the total renunciation of all bitterness, resentment and unforgiveness toward others by the believer (see Conquering the Hosts of Hell, p 34).  For additional categorical identification of spirits, consult a thesaurus. (See Demolishing the Hosts of Hell, p. 51.)

Here is a sample of how to identify unclean spirits that comprise “conditional love” from I Corinthians 13.

LOVE’S CONFESSION

I am the love of God, I endure long and am patient and kind.

I am never envious nor do I boil over with jealousy.

I am never boastful or vainglorious, nor do I display myself haughtily.

I am not conceited, arrogant or inflated with pride.

I am not rude, neither do I act unbecomingly.

I do not insist on my own rights or on having my own way.

I do not take account of any evil done to me nor do I pay any attention to a suffered wrong.

I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoice when right and truth prevail.

I bear up under anything and everything which comes.

I am ready to believe the best of every person.

My hopes remain fadeless under all circumstances.

I endure everything without weakening and never fail.
