*You need a personal relationship with Jesus to prevail against, Lucifer the enemy of all mankind.*
Some churches never preach on deliverance, neither do they practice it at all.
They live in harmony with evil spirits at their local assemblies.
We are told about the sons of Sceva who had, had enough of it so they tried to cast out evil spirits using the name of Jesus whom Paul preaches.
You they did not know Jesus, but they heard about what happens when his name is called, demons manifested and were cast out.
The Acts 19:15
AKJV: And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?
NLT: But when they tried it on a man possessed by an evil spirit, the spirit replied, "I know Jesus, and I know Paul. But who are you?"
NIV: One day the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?"
The evil spirit realised that the sons of Sceva had no knowledge of Jesus, they thought the whole process was a joke.
The possessed man leapt upon them and beat them up.
Deliverance is not like the movies we watch on TV.
You don't sprinkle holy water, say a few words in Latin and scare away the unclean spirits.
You need to be guided by the Holy Spirit through out the process.
Deliverance therefore is a product of your relationship with God.
If you have a troubled child, friend or relative who truly needs deliverance, don't do try and error on them,
fast and pray and seek guidance from God.
It is only through the knowledge of the will of God that real deliverance takes place.
Have a blessed weekend.
