What is Arrested Development


The following studies of arrested development are based on information gleaned from both scriptural and secular sources, including medical journals.  Valuable experience and insights were gained from deliverance workers ministering to individuals in the area of arrested development for the past two years.

Undoubtedly there is much more to be learned in this latest break through in deliverance.  Almost 100% of the population is handicapped in this area.  This would range from slight to crippling.  Webster’s Dictionary defines the compound term of arrested development by breaking it into the two words.

Arrested: to bring to a stop, to slow, to make inactive, seize, capture, to take or keep in custody by authority of law;

Development: growth that stagnated, put in custody (which has the authority to do so) which slows down or stops.

We purpose to expose the enemy for what he is, thus revealing his widespread networks and areas of control. These demons are not listed in any particular order nor does our listing set limits or order of sequence.  It is a list of evil spirits and how they work together.  We have arranged them in this order for an overview demonstrating how powerful and far reaching these spiritual kingdoms are.

It illustrates these relationships and how they work together to attack an individual.  The divided format may be used as a partial list of the evil spirits orchestrated in the ranks of Arrested Development.

Although many misguided believers do not accept it, Arrested Development and all of those in the demonic kingdoms recognize that men are a trinity (body, soul, spirit).  The enemy realizes that if growth in any of these three areas can be stunted or slowed it will weaken or even destroy the entire person.  Satan’s emissaries work constantly to control the individual by disrupting this three part harmony.

“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.

“For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

“Again, if two lie together, then they have heat; but how can one be warm alone?

“And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a three fold cord is not quickly broken.”  (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)

The Lord created man as body, soul and spirit. If the devil can slip in undetected in one area he will continue to spread his rottenness to other areas.  The result can be the destruction of everything but salvation itself.  This makes it imperative that we learn to detect these dangerous inroads early, prevent it from spreading and root it out.

Rejection, the Alcoholic Syndrome and Leviathan are three ruling spirits who have been found closely related to Arrested Development. These three leaders are known for opening the door and giving grounds for Arrested Development to come in and stay.  They also appear in the fruit produced by the individual later on.
