Self Deliverance


In my ministry, I discovered self-deliverance in a rather odd way.  We had been delivering people for some time in the services, week after week and seeing great victories.  One night as I was driving to the church on an errand I began to sing choruses, then I prayed a while.  I felt impressed to pray in tongues.  At first I paid little attention to the words which were coming; then it registered.  I had heard many of the same words and phrases in tongues when I prayed with people for deliverance attacking the demons in them.

Startled, I wondered, could the Holy Spirit (who gives the words for the tongues) be speaking to evil spirits in my body?  I did the same thing I counselled persons in deliverance to do.  I stopped praying with my mouth and began to exhale slow deep breaths.  About the third or fourth one, I choked violently and something besides air came up.  I prayed again, paused and breathed out and, retching and heaving, spirits began to boil out of me.  I coughed, gagged and spewed out demons all the way to church as the unsuspected squatters were dislodged by persistent prayer and my determination that they leave me.

After this happened, every morning as I showered, I began to make it a habit to pray and expel any spirits which had gained lodgment.  This way I got a spiritual and physical bath simultaneously.  I find it spiritually invigorating to shed the unwelcome visitors who are trying to set up housekeeping.  I do not fear the demons, but detest them and want none to have a place to rest in me.

Every believer must learn to throw out demons from him-self as well as from others.  If a curse is suspected to be the grounds for demonic activity, it must be broken in Jesus’ name (Phillipians 2:10).  Any legal ground or legal hold must also be broken by claiming the cleansing power of the blood (I John 1:7).  If unconfessed sin is the ground it must be dealt with (I John 1:9).  A demon betrays his presence by driving, harassing, or tormenting and produces compulsive positive or negative behavior.

A demon is a spirit, which means wind or breath and most leave through the breathing passages.  When an ambulance goes through town, all traffic is removed to expedite its passage.  Therefore, when praying for yourself, you should cease just before expelling (breathing out) the demons in order that prayer or praise will not obstruct their leaving.

The Greek word for “cast out” (Mark 16:18) means to throw out violently, to vomit.  Begin by breaking curses; destroy legal holds and legal grounds; bind spirits (if in doubt about names, call out the manifestations); then demand firmly in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that they leave you.  It can also be helpful (but not essential) at this point to pray in tongues.  You need not yell or shout – demons hear quite well and power is in the name and blood of Jesus, not in the volume of your voice.  Next, take three to five deep breaths and expel forcefully.  If you breathe deeply repeatedly you will hyperventilate and get dizzy, so take a pause occasionally.

Demons can come out by simple breathing, coughing, gagging, retching, choking, moans, groans, shrieks, etc.  The manifestations or lack of them depend on many factors involving the individual and the demons and are difficult to predict.  Spirits not deeply rooted will usually yield fairly easily.  However, stronger, heavily entrenched spirits will require more time and effort to dislodge.  The more stubborn and tenacious ones may require the help of other believers.

In spite of the fact that we are dealing with a defeated foe and all their legal grounds have been destroyed, strong demons are no pushovers.  Even in retreat the enemy can and will put up a fierce and determined rear guard action.  Because of the cleverness of spirits, many are fooled into thinking a strategic retreat is a wholesale surrender and rout and prematurely rejoice over a victory which is strictly partial.

Real persistence and the gift of discernment are very necessary here.  It is exceedingly rare to see a demonic structure which took many years to build destroyed in a single session.  However, the enemy can be mortally wounded and hurt in such an encounter.  The order of the day is Attack!  Attack!  Attack!  Give the enemy no time to regroup his forces.  Keep him off balance by determinedly demanding the occupied territory; physical, emotional, spiritual or mental.

When demons leave, there will be a difference within the person, a noticeable cessation or slackening of pressures and/or torment in the areas of his activity.  Remember that in the case of multiple spirits of the same kind, all must be removed before complete victory is assured.  For every inch of ground regained from the enemy there will be definite improvement.
