Freed from Religious Spirits
I had been a Roman Catholic for 30 years when my husband and I began to attend Catholic Charismatic meetings. It was here we both became born-again, spirit-filled believers.
As the spirit of god led us, we began to seek truth, for “God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth” (John 4:24). After much conviction, we finally decided to leave the Catholic Church.
After much searching, we were led to a Bible-preaching, spirit-filled church, which was newly immersed in a deliverance ministry. Pastor Worley had come and introduced the fact that a Christian can have a demon. He gave teachings, ministered to many, and even after he left, the Lord’s anointing remained. Soon everyone who attended our church, including our pastor, an ex-Roman Catholic priest, received much deliverance from evil spirits.
I remember the first time I received prayer for deliverance. Those demons were really disturbed because I was shivering uncontrollably from head to toe although I was warmly dressed. In the middle of my renunciation list of Catholic beliefs and practices, I broke into tears as a spirit of Sympathy for Catholicism emerged. I felt heavy guilt that I was a “traitor” to my “mother church.”
As great numbers of religious spirits were called forth they gave their names including a very vicious one called the “Mother of God.” In my mind I kept separating myself from those unwanted residents telling them to leave in Jesus’ Name, claiming the power of the blood of Jesus. With great convulsing sobs, thrashings and ear-piercing screams, one by one the demons left me.
Subsequently I have gone through other similar sessions, each time receiving deliverance from many different spirits. Thank God for the wonder of His mercy and that He not only cares for our eternal well-being, but wants us free from demonic bondages in this life as well. 11
