    Setting the Captive Free!

     

       Jesus came to ‘destroy the works of the devil’ and to ‘set the captive free’!  

     

    For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He

    might ‘destroy the works of the devil’.            I John 3:8

     

    And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he

    went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.  And there was

    delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.  And when he had opened the book,

    he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath

    anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;  he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,

    to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty

    them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.  And he closed the book,

    and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the

    synagogue were fastened on him.  And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture

    fulfilled in your ears.                                                                                     Luke 4:16-21 

     

       It is estimated that Jesus spent one fourth to one third of His time teaching and ministering deliverance.   If He thought it was that important, then we should too!

     

    And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel

    of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the

    people.  And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people

    that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with

    devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.  

                                                                                                             Matthew 4:23-24

     

    And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and

    them that were possessed with devils.  And all the city was gathered together at the

    door.  And he healed many that were sick of divers’ diseases, and cast out many devils;

    and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.                  Mark 1:32-34

     

       Born-again Believers, Christians, will never conquer the world for God in their present condition without deliverance.   The Church is in a pathetic state of bondage!

       Deliverance is another gift or blessing from God to make our life down here a little better.   Of the thousands and thousands of Christians who had many, many demons cast out of them, you could never convince them they never really had demons. 

       Before you got Saved, you didn’t believe it.   Before you spoke in Tongues, you didn’t believe it.   Look what you missed all those years.

       If a person does not believe in ‘hell’ does it change the fact?   If a person does not believe in ‘speaking in tongues’, does it change the fact?  If you don’t believe demons can be ‘inside’ of you, does it change the fact?

       Do you want to be free, or would you prefer that the demons you ‘don’t think you have’ keep you in bondage?   You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

       It is not automatic!   You have to do something.   You have to submit to Deliverance.   When you got saved you had to do something.   It was not automatic.   It should be our goal to get rid of all the demons we are aware of.  

     

    And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils;

    they shall speak with new tongues;   They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any

    deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

                                                                                                             Mark 16:17-18

     

       Real church growth is not measured by the ‘numbers of a body count’, but it is measured by the ‘real growth of the hearts and minds of the congregation’ in their relationship with Christ!
