Spiritual warfare and deliverance ministry
God is spirit and so is the devil. We are spirit body and soul. To walk with Jesus we need to fight in the spirit to take on the opposition.
” For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
When the Lord told Lester Sumrall the healing evangelist to take care of the little demon possessed girl, He told him:-
‘This is your problem, take care of it!’
Now this might sound a bit dismissive at first sight but the preacher was being told to walk in his authority in Christ, in the spirit.
Lester just said:-
‘Now come out of her’ and she was exorcised immediately.
What he learned was that he was not in the conflict.
‘It was the Christ in me. Also it was not the person who caused the battle, but the devil within him or her.’
We have to learn to separate the actions of the devil from the person. This is very relevant when we may know the history of those who are possessed or have toeholds footholds and strongholds of evil around them. We must walk from the other side of the veil in spirit. If we get mixed up in the flesh and blood, it can get messy.
His light and brightness takes out darkness.
” But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.”
Here was the prophecy of the Son of righteousness. We have to be exuding His light and incredible brightness for the darkness to flee.
He is the Healer. We are just His instrument.
