KEEPING YOUR DELIVERANCE
It’s one thing to get
free………It’s another, to “Stay Free”
II Cor. 10:3-6, “For though we walk in the
flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of
our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself
against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity
to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience
when your obedience is fulfilled.”
You can’t stop a thought from coming in……but you
can stop it from staying.
Evil spirits don’t change much.
• After you are born again…….They’ll say,
“that didn’t really happen”.
• After you were healed……They’ll say, “that
really didn’t work”.
• After the Baptism of the Holy Spirit…..They’ll
say, “That was just a bunch of gibberish”.
• After deliverance……They’ll say, “I’m
Remember they all lie.
Satan works on memory. He will remind you of a situation
that may have caused a stronghold in your past. We must bring the
devils thoughts into captivity. Get rid of it………do
not allow it to become an imagination.
Imagination (image of the mind) This can cause a crack in your armor………fear,
lust, addictions, perversion, etc. These imaginations must be cast
Knowledge: Creates desire…………..desire develops
into action. Action opens the door for a stronghold
The power of binding and loosing.

Remember they all lie.
Your actions can be habit.
Initially, your actions may be habit………..It won’t
If you have been saying cuss words for twenty years…….the
spirit of profanity is gone, but, you have a foul word slip out
of your mouth a few times.
Evil Spirits will knock again.
Evil spirits will seek to return. They will be very deceptive working
through human beings, trying to find a crack in your armor.
When satan tempted Jesus, satan planned to return at a later time.
Evil Spirits are “Familiar”
They will return and show up as a symptom of infirmity………like
the one you had before deliverance.
Remember it’s just a symptom, not the infirmity. You have
power and authority over all evil spirits.
Power and Authority is Yours
James 1:12, If you resist temptation……..You will receive
The more temptations………the more crowns. When a
symptom of infirmity comes………tell it to “get
out” in Jesus name.
When someone rejects you………..don’t receive
Keep the doors closed.
Stay in the center of God’s will.
Avoid returning to destructives places that caused your strongholds
in the first place. Do not go to bed angry. Opens door to a seed,
(causes crack in your armor).
During the night, it may take root……….find yourself
the next day getting extremely upset at others.
Satan attacks our thoughts.
Binding & Loosing
Matt. 16:19, “And I will give you the keys OF the kingdom
of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and
whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
This may be a repetitive process:
Everyone has a will……….rebellious son…………..uncontrollable
Remember the power and authority is yours…….all you
have to do is use it
