Being a good Citizen is now called “Mob Rule” by the Left!

The DNC’s definition of an ‘angry mob’

What’s Nancy Pelosi’s take on town hall protesters who don’t see eye to eye with the White House on health care reform…what an insult to the common American VOTER!
Before the election YOU were important to them NOW Dem’s and Republicans are fair game if they DARE TO VIEW THINGS WITH A THINKING MIND OF THEIR OWN…..how dare they!

These Americans have been targeted NOT because they disrupt meetings BUT SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ASKED THE WRONG QUESTIONS. They actually have realized for the first time that the Government does not have their interests in mind. Knowing this is a shock for those who voted for Obama saying that HE was a different kind of Politician, a man who would cause the waters to part in congress promoting a time of peace and prosperity with both sides equally in agreement.

This dream world never happened and Trillions of Dollars later we’re under even greater unemployment and debt than under the hated Bush years that were no better than the hated Clinton years economically speaking that is; LET’S FACE FACTS… NO PRESIDENT in recent memory has so destroyed the American dollar as Obama is now! Hyperinflation Nation starring Peter Schiff, Ron Paul, Jim Rogers, Tom Woods, Gerald Celente, and others. Prepare now before the US dollar is worthless.

It’s official, trillion is the new billion. No longer is government spending talked about in terms of a mere ten digits. With the recent flurry of government spending, we are going to need another three zeros to make sense of it all. One trillion dollars is a number that few people can comprehend, let alone your standard nine digit calculator. So what does one trillion dollars look like?
How in the world are we going to pay off all of this debt? Raising taxes to do it will burden our economy, and then the situation would only get worse. To me the solution is obvious, cut spending.

For too long in this country we’ve had the give me stuff mentality people standing there with their hand out, and the government putting something in it. Does the idea of small government ring a bell? It is what our founding Fathers had in mind when they gave us our constitution. That is why there is a list in the constitution that quite clearly spells out the powers of the federal government, and also what it is not allowed to do. So basically if it was not listed as a power, then they are to stay away from it, and allow the States to handle it.

Just take a look at federal laws. At the very beginning they will state their authority in enacting the law, and it is almost always the commerce clause. I’m sure they even think that just because your computer is hooked up to the internet, and therefore has contact with other computers in other States, that they then would have the constitutional right of regulating your computer, and thereby your Internet communications; they are out of control.

Federal obligations exceed world GDP
Does $65.5 trillion terrify anyone yet?

“As the Obama administration pushes through Congress its $800 billion deficit-spending economic stimulus plan, the American public is largely unaware that the true deficit of the federal government already is measured in trillions of dollars, and in fact its $65.5 trillion in total obligations exceeds the gross domestic product of the world.
The total U.S. obligations, including Social Security and Medicare benefits to be paid in the future, effectively have placed the U.S. government in bankruptcy, even before new continuing social welfare obligation embedded in the massive spending plan are taken into account.
The real 2008 federal budget deficit was $5.1 trillion, not the $455 billion previously reported by the Congressional Budget Office, according to the “2008 Financial Report of the United States Government” as released by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
The difference between the $455 billion “official” budget deficit numbers and the $5.1 trillion budget deficit cited by “2008 Financial Report of the United States Government” is that the official budget deficit is calculated on a cash basis, where all tax receipts, including Social Security tax receipts, are used to pay government liabilities as they occur.
But the numbers in the 2008 report are calculated on a GAAP basis (“Generally Accepted Accounting
Practices”) that include year-for-year changes in the net present value of unfunded liabilities in social insurance programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
Under cash accounting, the government makes no provision for future Social Security and Medicare benefits in the year in which those benefits accrue.
“As bad as 2008 was, the $455 billion budget deficit on a cash basis and the $5.1 trillion federal budget deficit on a GAAP accounting basis does not reflect any significant money [from] the financial bailout or Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, which was approved after the close of the fiscal year,” economist John Williams, who publishes the Internet website Shadow Government Statistics, told WND.
“The Congressional Budget Office estimated the fiscal year 2009 budget deficit as being $1.2 trillion on a cash basis and that was before taking into consideration the full costs of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, before the cost of the Obama nearly $800 billion economic stimulus plan, or the cost of the second $350 billion in TARP funds, as well as all current bailouts being contemplated by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve,” he said.
“The federal government’s deficit is hemorrhaging at a pace which threatens the viability of the financial system,” Williams added. “The popularly reported 2009 [deficit] will clearly exceed $2 trillion on a cash basis and that full amount has to be funded by Treasury borrowing.” By Jerome R. Corsi

The following Video complains about the Debt under Bush….Wonder where this guy is today since Obama has done far worse than BUSH DID IN EIGHT YEARS IN ONLY 6 MONTHS TIME!
Jack Cafferty interviews former Nixon Commerce Secretary Pete Peterson, who discusses the unfortunate political and financial reality of the Bush Administration’s excessive spending, deficits, and China borrowings, rendering us both politically and financially vulnerable, as we devolve into third world nation status. Another reason why the Bush legacy will be to take us from the World’s most formidable military and financial power steps closer to being third world nation. Wow…do these people NOW know that Obama’s debt is even deeper in the hole than Bush ever was, WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE OVER THIS HYPOCRISY?
Its always funny how what was good for Bush then (Telling America what a waster he was, what a right wing nut-job he was, what lies he told) is just right wing propaganda when its against Obama…..for even worse crimes of neglect!
The 2009 Henry Hazlitt Memorial Lecture, presented by Peter Schiff. Recorded at the annual Austrian Scholars Conference, Ludwig von Mises Institute, 13 March 2009.
Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson understood “The Monster”. But to most Americans today, Federal Reserve is just a name on the dollar bill. They have no idea of what the central bank does to the economy, or to their own economic lives; of how and why it was founded and operates; or of the sound money and banking that could end the statism, inflation, and business cycles that the Fed generates.

Dedicated to Murray N. Rothbard, steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary new film is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.

Alan Greenspan is not, we’re told, happy about this 42-minute blockbuster. Watch it, and you’ll understand why. This is economics and history as they are meant to be: fascinating, informative, and motivating. This movie could change America.

This mess started long before Bush and will exist long after Obama so to blame a single president for it is useless BUT that said its still a fixable mess if we don’t make it worse by OVER SPENDING and printing more paper than Gold…..Oh! are we not doing that now!
An excerpt from Sarah Palin’s farewell speech sums up how we should feel about the media, in which she issued a challenge to the them: “In honor of the American soldier, you quit makin’ things up.” She also urged to the media, of incoming Governor Sean Parnell: “Leave his kids alone.”

FREEDOM from DEMONS!!

YOU CANNOT PRAY A DEMON AWAY.
THEY MUST BE CAST OUT
IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

DELIVERANCE AND THE THREE BAD SOILS OF MATTHEW 13
“In the parable of the soils, Matthew 13, the FIRST soil we see is that of the way side. This represents people that have been beaten down to a hard path from the passage of many footsteps. We’ll call them pathway people. Soil that is trodden down becomes compacted and hard and the seeds of DELIVERANCE are quickly eaten up by the birds of prey. The seeds are good; sermons on alcohol, arrested development, rejection, rebellion, and so on. And they have been sown into many lives, but still, the many do nothing with it. They just lie there, and soon are eaten up. In order to not be a pathway person, one first has to stop the things that are trodding down the paths of our lives. Like a no trespassing sign, or fence.

There are several things that harden us against God and DELIVERANCE.

1. Our friends and associates. Do they bring me to God and DELIVERANCE, or away?

2. The literature or TV programs we watch. Do they slowly harden me towards God?

3. The music we listen to continually. Does it arouse your emotions and affections while hardening your spirit?

4. Our private thought life. We are what we think about when alone. Not what we pretend to be in public.

These things, though not always evil or sin, could be tolerated once or twice through the soil. But on a habitual basis they do nothing more than compact our soil, making us unfruitful.

The SECOND unfruitful soil we see is the rocky or stony soil. This type of soil can be cleared and cultivated at enormous cost and infinite care, but usually produces pathetic results because of the stones still buried beneath the surface. Denial, or refusal to deal with them being the main reasons. This type of soil is compared to one in whom hours of (DELIVERANCE) prayer have been poured into, and then they drop out. The plants of DELIVERANCE wither and dry up. Unbelief, stubbornness, and self-centeredness create an enormous sub-surface resistance that blocks any growth of fruit the Holy Spirit is trying to bring.

There are different characteristics of stony soil likened to man. One is a thin layer of good soil overlaying solid bedrock. This represents the deceptive. People that sound and look like they are in DELIVERANCE, but when the seeds of DELIVERANCE are planted they soon wither because there is no place for the roots to grow. These are those with only a superficial or surface experience. Look good, sound good, but deceptive and non fruit producing, having a short life span.

Still, other types of people can be likened to soil made up of mostly gravel, or sand. This soil is void of the water and nutrients necessary to support the life of the new plants. As long as it is artificially pumped with water and nutrients it will support some life. But by itself, it is nothing but desert.

The THIRD non productive soil is one cleared of all the stones, carefully fertilized, cultivated, a seed bed prepared, and planted. It also has a good crop on the way towards harvest. But soon the crop begins to become choked, something else is competing for the water and nutrients needed to support its life. Thorns and thistles allowed to go unchecked smother and stifle the growth of the DELIVERANCE crop planted. The enemy has crept in and sowed tares. The job of hoeing out the weeds has been forsaken.

Usually the farmer ends up plowing this crop under and tries again at a later date to plant it.

JESUS made it clear that the thorns, thistles, and weeds that choke out his choice plants are the cares of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches. These two categories of weeds choke out more DELIVERANCE workers than anything else. The problem lies with trying to fit God, (or DELIVERANCE), into their schedule of life, instead of fitting their life around Him. Seek ye first.. the kingdom of God. That is to say, salvation, healing and DELIVERANCE, and the rest will be added. If you are first a DELIVERANCE worker, and then an employee, God will take care of the cares of the world. I have never regretted putting the Lord first in my life, and then fashioning my life around the work for DELIVERANCE, salvation, and healing.

Soul ties to former ways of life and relationships act as thorns and thistles to many a person. They simply use up time and energy needed to support any real crops. Is what you’re currently doing, working? Or could it be what you’re involved in is unfruitful? If the church you are attending is likened unto a barren desert, can you become a lush, fruitful garden there? It’s possible that an ungodly soul tie is keeping you from becoming fruitful.

God can indeed cultivate us into productive soil. He wants to, tries to, and goes to unbelievable limits with some people to make them a fruitful land. But the majority of the time most recoil from the plowshares of DELIVERANCE and the choice fruit is never produced. Anyone who has devoted their life, time and attention to anything less than what JESUS did, (Salvation, Healing and DELIVERANCE), has indeed missed the mark and purpose for living. Many are attempting to grow crops consisting of wood, hay, and stubble that burn up with time and never change lives for eternity.

I recognize it’s hard work clearing the ground, and I appreciate all of you who haven’t “left the field.” But be not weary in well doing for we will reap in due season if we faint not. I hope this newsletter will be a continual source of encouragement to press on to the mark of the high calling, and to stimulate and cause a little self examination.

Let’s give God permission to set his plow deep in our lives, to turn over those hard stones and weeds, and to be made into a fruitful field that will produce for all eternity. Let’s not waste our lives on the shallowness of worldly living. The choice is ours. Remember, turning a desert into a fertile producing plain does not occur overnight. But the choice fruit produced is worth all the effort.”

ARE YOU GOOD SOIL?

MATTHEW 13:10 – “Then the disciples came to Him (JESUS) and said, Why do You speak to THEM in parables? And He REPLIED TO THEM, TO YOU it has been given to know the secrets and mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, but to THEM it has not been given. 12) For whoever has {spiritual knowledge], to him will more be given and he will be furnished richly so that he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 13) This is the reason that I speak to them in parables; because having the power of seeing, they do not see; and having the power of hearing, they do not hear, nor do they grasp and understand. 14) In them indeed is the process of fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah, which says: You shall indeed hear and hear but never grasp and understand; and you shall indeed look and look but never see and perceive. 15) For this nation’s heart has grown gross (fat and dull), and their ears heavy and difficult of hearing, and their eyes they have tightly closed, lest they see and perceive with their eyes, and hear and comprehend the sense with their ears, and grasp and understand with their heart, and turn and I should heal them [Isa. 6:9, 10.] 16) But blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are YOUR EYES BECAUSE they do see, and YOUR ears because they do hear. 17) Truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous men [men who were upright and in right standing with God] yearned to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”

DEMONS – WHAT THEY ARE AND ARE NOT

DEMONS – WHAT ARE THEY? Demons are NOT human. They are invisible evil spirits with various sizes and shapes.

WHERE DID THEY COME FROM?

There are no Scriptures to back anyone’s personal opinions or theories.

God did in fact create everything (including Lucifer). Colossians 1:16 “For it was in Him that ALL things were created, in heaven and on earth, things SEEN and things UNSEEN, whether THRONES, DOMINIONS, RULERS, or AUTHORITIES; ALL things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.”

AND

JOHN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2/The same was in the beginning with God. 3/ ALL THINGS were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.

We do know that the demons have rankings (like the military). Again in Colossians 1:16 “…things seen and things unseen, whether THRONES – DOMINIONS – RULERS – AUTHORITIES

King James version calls them “VISIBLE and INVISIBLE, whether THRONES – DOMINIONS – PRINCIPALITIES – POWERS

Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against PRINCIPALITIES, against POWERS, against the RULERS of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” KJV

Ephesians 6:12 “For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the DESPOTISMS, against the POWERS, against [the master spirits who are] the world RULERS of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.” AMPLIFIED

The above scriptures destroy any notion that there are NO demons.

DEMONS – WHAT THEY ARE NOT — If you think the demons are the “fallen angels”, this can only be a personal opinion. There are some Scriptures that are not clear (like in the Book of Revelations), so everyone has their own opinion. However, as far as “fallen angels” go, check this out. These two Scriptures are quite clear. There is no room for opinions.

II Peter 2:4 “For God did not [even] spare ANGELS that sinned, but CAST THEM INTO HELL, delivering them to be KEPT THERE in pits of gloom TILL THE JUDGMENT and their doom.”

Jude, verse 6 “And ANGELS who did not keep (care for, guard, and hold to) their own first place of power but abandoned their proper dwelling place–THESE He has reserved IN CUSTODY IN ETERNAL CHAINS (bonds) under the thick gloom of utter darkness UNTIL THE JUDGMENT and doom of the great day.”

DEMONS – WHAT THEY DO — Their job is to CONTROL you, to DEFILE you, to HARASS you, to TORMENT you, and to DRIVE you to DO, SAY, THINK, and FEEL things you wish you could eliminate from your life.

WHAT DEMONS ARE FROM THE MOUTH OF JESUS

Mark 7:OUT

How to Deliver from Demon Possession

By Dale P. Kruse

(Taken From Chapter 13 of the Book: The Nature of Spiritual Warfare)

In order to deliver someone from demon possession and keep them free, you must do the following seven steps:

1.

First, Fast and pray while waiting before the Lord for His revelation and instruction.
2.

Second, eat protein and build up your strength.
3.

Third, make sure the person has truly come to saving faith in Jesus.
4.

Fourth, identify and write down all doorways to demon possession or oppression.
5.

Fifth, have them confess and repent of these doorways.
6.

Sixth, bind and command the related unclean spirits to leave in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
7.

Seventh, explain to them what they must do to stay clean and delivered.

Those who have followed these steps have had 100% results in deliverance without exception.

FIRST, FAST & PRAY

Before prayer for deliverance is carried out, it is good to first fast and wait before the Lord while reading His word, seeking His Holy Spirit wisdom and grace, strength and power for each individual situation you involve yourself in for demonic deliverance until the Lord has made plain His will for you in whether deliverance is what is needed or not and how He wants you to proceed.

SECOND, EAT PROTEIN
AND BUILD UP YOUR STRENGTH

Once you have received the Lord’s answers and assurance of victory, before you go into deliverance, take a couple of days to eat extra protein and build up your strength. You are now ready to assist the Lord in delivering your brother or sister from demonic possession.

THIRD, MAKE SURE THEY HAVE
RECEIVED JESUS AS SAVIOR & LORD

In order for a person to be delivered from possession of an unclean spirit, first the person needs to in Jesus’ name denounce Satan, surrender to and confess Jesus as the only Lord and then receive Jesus into their heart as Savior from their sins and as Lord of their life. Have them pray like this:

In the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Satan I renounce and confess Jesus Christ of Nazareth as the only Lord and God.

Jesus, I confess to You that I am a sinner and repent of my known sins. I ask You now to come into my heart as Savior from my sins and as Lord of my life. Heavenly Father, thank You for forgiving my sins through Your Son’s death and shed blood on the cross and that I now have eternal life. Now take control of my life, and through Your Holy Spirit lead me into your will and plan for my life; in Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth’s name, amen.

If the person is unable to do this because they are being hindered by the unclean spirits, then in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth bind the unclean spirits and command them to release the person’s will and to stop hindering the person from receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Then if the person is willing, have them do what I just said above. This is the first step to deliverance.

Once the person has confessed and received Jesus as Savior and Lord, They now have the power of the Holy Spirit in them to deliver themselves from demon possession (Acts 10:43-44, Eph 1:13-14).

FOURTH, IDENTIFY ALL KNOWN DOORWAYS
TO DEMON POSSESSION OR OPPRESSION

The next step to deliverance is to identify the doorways which led to demon infestation. There are primarily 3 doorways which lead to demon infestation:

1.

Inheritance
2.

Sexual sins
3.

Any involvement in the occult

What is a doorway? The Bible states that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. The term doorway refers to any sin which defiles our temple. Through that doorway of sin demons can enter and cause problems in our lives. The person needs to determine what sins they committed in which of these areas. The first category is not their sins, but the sins of their ancestors. God says in His word:

Exodus 34:6-7 “Then Yehovah passed by in front of him [Moses] and proclaimed, Yehovah, Yehovah God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.” (See also Num 14:18, Deut 5:9)

If the person has received demons through inheritance because of there parents involvement in the occult or the other areas above and they are aware of it, then what they need to do is confess and repent of the sins of their ancestors, thank Jesus for His forgiveness according to 1 John 1:9 and then ask Jesus to cleanse them of the sin of their fathers.

If they have become infested through sexual sin, meaning intercourse outside the bounds of marriage or through any other kind of sexual deviation outside of marriage, they need to write down every contact they had and confess it to God.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, Nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

Ephesians 5:5-6 “For this you know with certainty, that no fornicator or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.”

Colossians 3:5-6 “Therefore put to death your members that are on earth to fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil lust, and covetousness which is idolatry. For it is on account of these things that the wrath of God will come.”

They need to do the same with any involvement with the occult: write down on a piece of paper each individual involvement such as Ouija Boards, séances, seeking out Psychics or Fortune Tellers, practicing Witchcraft, etcetera. The sole purpose of the occult is to seek out and communicate with demons. Therefore, any activity which led them to seek communication with demons needs to be confessed. These are the sins which led to possession.

FIFTH, CONFESS AND REPENT
OF ALL KNOWN DOORWAYS

They next need to confess and repent of each of these doorways and any other sins they are aware of in their lives. They must be brutal with themselves, they need to confess and repent of each of these sins individually to Jesus and then thank Him for His forgiveness according to 1 John 1:9 and then ask Jesus to cleanse them of that sin. They need also to in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth denounce Satan in each of these activities. Pray like this:

In the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Satan, I denounce you and the occult and this activity.

Until the person confesses and repents of each specific sin of involvement in any of the three areas mentioned and any other known sins, attempts of deliverance will be futile. The Bible teaches:

Proverbs 28:13 “He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.”

Proverbs 22:8 “He who sows iniquity will reap vanity, and the rod of his fury will perish.”

Isaiah 59:1-2 “Behold, Yehovah’s hand is not so short that it cannot save; neither is His-ear so dull that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He does not hear.”

The only basis for deliverance is true repentance and a sincere desire on the person’s part to want to be delivered and willingness to carry out whatever is necessary to be delivered. Repentance according to John the Baptist in Matthew 3:1-12 and Luke 3:1-14 means to confess our sins to God, make right our wrongs confessed and then to bring forth fruit, continued changed behavior in keeping with repentance. Once the sins have been confessed to God and repented of and God’s forgiveness is received by faith through Jesus’ death and shed blood on the cross, the demons will then have no alternative but to obey and leave when the person in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth commands them to leave.

SIXTH, BIND AND COMMAND THE
RELATED UNCLEAN SPIRITS TO LEAVE

Once each sin is confessed and repented of and Jesus forgiveness is received by faith through His death and shed blood on the cross, this removes any legal ground the demons have to stay. The person can then by faith in Jesus’ name bind the unclean spirits and command them to leave forever and they will leave instantly. You command all the demons at once to come out related to the sin that let them in.

In the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I bind all unclean spirits related to this sin and command you to come out and be gone forever!

Deliverance does not require knowing the demons name or anything about the demon or demons. This is not the key to deliverance and in no way helps the process of deliverance. The Bible is very clear about our not communicating with unclean spirits. We are not to communicate with them except to in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to bind them and command them to leave after the conditions the Bible lays out are met as explained above. By unclean spirits I mean demons. Demons are fallen angels, part of Satan’s unseen kingdom. We are not to seek them out or communicate with them. When you talk to a demon, you in essence make the person possessed a medium and you are disobeying the Bible’s clear command to not communicate with demons. Because this is forbidden in Scripture, doing so will hinder you from being able to deliver the person possessed. Here are passages which clearly teach this:

Leviticus 19:31 “Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am Yehovah-your-Elohim.”

Leviticus 20:6 “As for the person who turns to mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.”

Leviticus 20:27 “Now a man or a woman who is a medium or a spiritist shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones, their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

Deuteronomy 18:10-13 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is an abomination to Yehovah; and because of these abominations Yehovah your-Elohim will drive them out before you. You shall be blameless before Yehovah your-Elohim.”

Isaiah 8:19-20 “And when they say to you, ‘Consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter,’ should not a people consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living? To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.”

The only exception to this is when dealing with people who have been involved in the occult who have worked with familiar spirits. In this case these familiar spirits must be rebuked and bound in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and commanded to leave by name. These people will already know the names of these familiar spirits. If they say they do not know, they are lying. Understand however this does not mean this requires you to have the demon speak or for the demon to manifest itself in order for the person to be delivered from the demon. They simply must in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth bind it and then by name command it to come out and be gone forever. The more the person controls the demons inside them, the quicker will be their deliverance.

James 4:7 “Submit therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Acts 5:32 “And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”

Luke 10:19 “Behold, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy and to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and nothing shall injure you.”

Mark 16:17 “And these signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.”

Once the person commands them to leave, the Holy Spirit will let you know that they have left. They must then by faith accept that they are gone. This means they must accept it on the basis of God’s promises in His word: the BIBLE! as stated above, not on how they may feel. Feelings are an organ of our fallen soul which Satan has access to and can manipulate. Therefore, feelings must be ignored, not determined as a basis for deliverance. Our basis for deliverance is the promises of God’s Word, the BIBLE!, alone, which brings up another basis for deliverance: You must believe the BIBLE is God’s Word and believe it LITERALLY! Otherwise, how can you have faith in the promises of God in the BIBLE for deliverance? Jesus said in John 5:46-47, “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote of Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” Jesus said if you don’t take Moses literally, you won’t take his words literally either. Jesus made it plain that if we are to have faith in any truth in the BIBLE you must take all truths taught in the BIBLE literally. Our faith and power against Satan in Jesus’ name is based on our having faith in the literalness of God’s Word: the BIBLE! Note what the Bible says about God’s promises in His Word: the BIBLE!

Joshua 21:45 “Not one of the good promises which Yehovah had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass.”

Numbers 23:19 “Elohim is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent; has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”

1 Samuel 15:29 “And also The-Glory-of-Israel will not lie or change his mind; for He is not a man that He should change His mind.”

Psalm 89:34 “My covenant I will not violate, nor will I alter the utterance of My lips.”

Psalm 119:89 “Your word is settled in Heaven forever, Yehovah.”

Psalm 138:2 “You have magnified Your Word according to all Your name.”

Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our-Elohim stands forever.”

Malachi 3:6 “For I, Yehovah, do not change.”

Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away.”

Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever.”

Hebrews 6:18 “It is impossible for God to lie.”

Titus 1:2 “In the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago.”

Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”

2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith, not by appearance.”

How we know the BIBLE is absolutely true and reliable:

John 2:22 “When therefore He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this; and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had spoken.”

If the person has gone through the six steps laid out above but the person is truly not yet delivered, it means there are sins they have not yet confessed. The person must ruthlessly confess and repent of all known sins, otherwise commanding the unclean spirits to leave in Jesus’ name will not work. If they don’t know what they need to confess due to lack of memory, then have them pray and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom to bring back to their memory specific sins they have not yet confessed and repented of according to God’s promise in James 1:5,

“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5)

Whatever the Lord shows them, have them go through the steps above and then accept by faith it is done.

SEVENTH, WHAT THEY MUST DO
TO STAY DELIVERED & CLEAN

Once delivered, in order for the person to stay clean they must absolutely ruthlessly disassociate themselves from whatever led to there possession in the first place. They must cleanse their home of all familiar objects related. By familiar objects, I mean that which is associated with their involvement with the occult, all porno magazines, films, pictures, occult objects, ancestral objects related to the occult, etcetera. These also will hinder the person from being delivered and staying delivered. Passages in the Bible which talk about removing familiar objects are the following:

Deuteronomy 7:25-26 The graven images of their els [gods] you are to burn with fire; you shall not covet the silver or the gold that is on them, nor take it for yourselves, lest you be snared by it, for it is an abomination to Yehovah your Elohim. And you shall not bring an abomination into your house, and like it come under the ban; you shall utterly detest it and you shall utterly abhor it, for it is something banned.

Exodus 32:19-20 And it came about, as soon as Moses came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing; and Moses’ anger burned, and he threw the tablets from his hands and shattered them at the foot of the mountain. And he took the calf which they had made and burned it with fire, and ground it to powder, and scattered it over the surface of the water, and made the sons of Israel drink it.

1 Corinthians 10:19-20 “What do I mean then? That a thing sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God; and I do not want you to become sharers in demons.”

Acts 19:17-19 “And this became known to all, both Jews and Greeks, who lived in Ephesus; and fear fell upon them all and the name of the Lord-Jesus was being magnified. Many also of those who had believed kept coming, confessing and disclosing their practices. And many of those who practiced magic brought their books together and began burning them in the sight of all, and they counted up the price of them and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.”

In order for the person to to stay clean, if you helped them to get there, you will need to stay with them in follow up for at least six months until they are strong and stable enough to stay clean themselves. Ideally, you should have them live with you. This is because it takes time for this person to get to the place of being strong enough in themselves to fight off Satanic forces which will try to come back and re-establish their home there.

Matthew 12:43-45 “Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places, seeking rest, and does not find it. Then it said, ‘I will return to my house from which I came’; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Then it goes, and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

If you want to be in the deliverance ministry, you will then need to be committed to stick with this person for as long as it takes to help them become stable and be able to stand on their own two feet and stay clean of demons. You can’t do this unless you are willing to take them into your own home where you can be with them day and night for as long as it takes.

John 21:15-17 “So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon, son of John, do you-love [agape, focus of effection love] Me more than these?’ He said to Him, ‘Yes, Lord; You know that I-love [phileo, loving someone as a Friend or brother] You.’ He said to him, ‘Tend My lambs.’ He said to him again a second time, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love [agape] Me?’ He said to Him, ‘Yes, Lord; You know that I love [phileo] You.’ He said to him, ‘Shepherd My sheep.’ He said to him the third time, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love [phileo] Me?’ Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, ‘Do you love [phileo] Me?’ And he said to Him, ‘Lord, You know all things; You know that I love [phileo] You.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Tend My sheep.’”

To stay clean they will have to regain control over their thought life. Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 10:5 “We are subverting computations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” Demon infestation is the result of a passive mind, a person giving over their thought life to Satan. The spiritual battle is in the mind. It is in the mind a person decides what he will or will not focus on. What he focuses or does not focus on is what will determine who he or she is and how much control Satan will have over them. Therefore gaining control over their thought life is the first step to staying delivered.

How do they do this? First, by studying and meditating upon God’s word. Paul wrote in Philippians 4:8-9,

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you.”

What is true, pure and excellent? Joshua wrote in Joshua 1:8,

“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.”

David wrote in Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden Your word in my heart, that I might not sin against You.” Other Bible passages teach us about God’s word:

Psalm 12:6 “The words of Yehovah are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.”

Proverbs 16:20 “He who gives attention to the word shall find good, and blessed is he who trusts in Yehovah.”

Proverbs 22:17-21 “Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply your mind to my knowledge; For it will be pleasant if you keep them within you, that they may be ready on your lips. So that your trust may be in Yehovah, I have taught you today, even you. Have I not written to you excellent things of counsels and knowledge, To make you know the certainty of the words of truth that you may correctly answer to him who sent you?”

Psalm 19:7-11 “The law of Yehovah is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of Yehovah is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of Yehovah are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of Yehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of Yehovah is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of Yehovah are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.”

John 17:17 “Sanctify them in the truth, Your word is truth.”

Ephesians 6:17 “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is spiritually-alive and energetically-affective and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the conscious-reasonings and intentions of the heart.”

The first step to their gaining control over a passive mind is to study, memorize and meditate on God’s word. Chapter 2-4 also talk about how to gain control over a passive mind and the flesh and how to keep the flesh from sinning.

Second, they need to be in the fellowship of believers. A Christian cannot live the Christian life in his own strength. He or she needs the support of other believers. Jesus commands in His word in Hebrews 10:24-25,

“And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.”

Hebrews 12:12-13 states “Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.”

Third, you need to instruct them about the importance of spending a daily quiet time with Jesus in His word to submit themselves to Him and His will and plan for their lives, and to draw upon His Holy Spirit grace, strength and power to carry out His will. James wrote in James 4:7 “Submit therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” Jesus said in Matthew 26:41 “Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 1 Chronicles 16:11 & Psalm 105:4 state “Seek Yehovah and His strength; seek His face continually.” Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might.” Again a Christian cannot live the Christian life alone in His own strength. He needs the strength and support of other Christians, and the strength and power of the Holy Spirit to live the Christian life. Proverbs 3:6 states “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Jesus promises us that when we submit ourselves to Him and acknowledge Him in all our ways, in our day, that He will give us the power of the Holy Spirit to keep our ways straight in Him.

Fourth, you will need to teach them the importance of seeking God’s will in their use of time and then for them to obey the Lord in their use of time. In Chapter 4 we shared that the flesh never did obey God’s laws and it never will (Rom 8:6-8, Rom 7:14). If this is true, how then does one keep their flesh from sinning? How does a person who has been delivered out of the occult and cleansed of demons stay out of the occult and cleansed of demons? Paul gives us the answer in Galatians 5:16. Paul wrote “But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.” How does one know when they are walking in the Spirit and when they are not? We are walking in the Holy Spirit when we are using our time according to God’s will (Rom 13:14, Eph 5:15-17). When we are occupied in our use of time from the time we get up until we go to bed with Jesus’ will, there is no opportunity for the flesh to carry out its desires and lusts. Paul tells us in Romans 7:14 that the flesh is in bondage to sin. What this means is that when the flesh is idle, when given opportunity through being idle, the flesh will gravitate to its lusts and it will sin. This is why in Romans 13:14 Paul doesn’t say get rid of the lusts of your flesh because on this side of heaven that is impossible. Instead, what Paul says to do is to not give the flesh an opportunity to carry out its lusts. How do we do that? by keeping the flesh so occupied it doesn’t have the opportunity to focus on or pursue its lusts. Therefore, the way you teach the person how to have victory over their sinful lusts and desires is by instructing them to daily seek God’s will in their use of time and then encouraging them of the importance of their using their time as God has instructed them to. This is the only way they will be able to keep from slipping back into the sins of their flesh which is by putting “on the Lord Jesus Christ. . .” and making “no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.” You do this by instructing them to fill their time from the time they get up until they go to bed with God’s will.

Can a Christian be Possesed?

By Dale P. Kruse

Can a Christian be possessed?

Yes! A Christian can be possessed because only a Christian can be delivered.

The deliverance ministry benefits only those who have made Jesus Savior and Lord. The unsaved cannot be delivered, or if they are they end up seven times worse afterwards since they do not have the power of the Holy Spirit to stay delivered.

Many come to saving faith in Jesus Christ possessed because of previous involvement in the occult, sexual sins, sins of inheritance or as a result of specific unrepented sins. Some Christians become possessed because later they get involved in these kind of sins. The Bible is plain in Galatians 6:7-8,

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life.”

While many people’s theology teaches a Christian cannot be possessed, nothing in the Bible teaches that a Christian cannot be possessed. Possession is the result of sin, but not just any sin, but sin that a person commits that is deliberate and ongoing and without the intent to repent. Ecclesiastes 10:8 states “He who digs a pit will fall into it; and whoever breaks a hedge, a serpent will bite him.” When we sin, that is a doorway first to oppression. When we sin we give Satan legal access to ourselves.

We only have authority over Satan when we are in submission to the Lord. James 4:7 states “Submit therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James wrote this to Christians, not non-believers. When we sin and do not immediately confess and repent of it, unclean spirits related attach themselves to us to keep us in bondage to that sin. That is why even though we confess and repent of our sins and God forgives us, afterwards we often times still feel attached to and prone to that sin. Paul expressed this frustration in Romans 7:18-19,

“For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the wishing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. For the good that I wish, I do not do; but I practice the very evil that I do not wish.”

We have to go further than just confessing and repenting of our sins, we have to ask the Lord to then also cleanse us from the sin and all unclean spirits related. If we do not, we will find ourselves repeating the sin with seemingly no power to say no. That is because it is now the demonic influences which are causing us to sin. So after we confess our sins we also need to in the name and the blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to bind the unclean spirits related and command them to leave.

Next, as described in this article, you need to also anoint your house and place of work. Next, pray for the covering of Jesus’ blood (Revelation 12:11), the surrounding and protection of His mighty warrior angels (Psalm 34:7); and the overshadowing power and protection of the Holy Spirit (2 Thess 3:3).

“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death.” (Revelation 12:11)

“The angel of Yehovah encamps around those who fear Him, and rescues them.” (Psalm 37:7)

“But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.” (2 Thess 3:3)

This is how we deal with demonic oppression. It is never just simply an issue of confessing our known sins, that is the first step. We then do need to take authority over the unclean spirits related or we will find ourselves continuing in that sin whether we want to or not. Only after binding the unclean spirits and commanding them to leave will we then find release from the propensity to sin. We all have a disposition to certain kinds of sins.

It is these sins we usually have the greatest battle with once we have given into them. What I have described here is what Christians mostly battle with which is oppression of unclean spirits from the outside, not possession.

While most Christians are not possessed, they can become possessed and this comes about through repetitious unrepented sin; sin we do deliberately, wantonly without any intention of repenting. Eventually that then opens a hole in the wall of our protection and demons enter in.

This is why it is so important when we fall to temptation to immediately confess it and get on our knees and ask for the Lord to cleanse us of that sin and to seal that doorway in His blood. We then need to ask Him for Holy Spirit grace, strength and power to say no to this sin and temptation when it comes (Eph 6:10, 2 Thess 3:3).

This is why it is so important that we stay close to the Lord through reading the Word and prayer and daily seek His power to stay close to Him and away from those things which tempt us. Jesus said in Matthew 26:41 “Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

The Bible tells us that Satan prowls about waiting for that opening in our protection.

1 Peter 5:8-10 “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.”

The solution is to stay clean of sin and to immediately confess and repent of your sin when committed and to stay close to the Lord by daily spending time with Him by reading His Word (1 Peter 1:22-23) and through prayer (Matt 26:41) and through avoiding temptation (Romans 13:14).

In the Article titled The Nature of the Flesh I explain how to avoid temptation and keep the flesh from sinning. We also need to daily put on the full armor of God to protect us from demonic attack and is why God has provided this armor listed in Ephesians 6:10-18.

It is a literal armor which covers and protects our human spirit. Only as we are submitted to the Lord and walk in obedience to Him do we have His protection and power and authority over Satan.
