While it isn’t popular to speak of Demons and Evil Spirits
nevertheless it is part of the gospel according to Jesus Christ. Much of his
ministry revolved around casting demons out of people but today many ministers
consider it beneath them and somewhat degrading.
It would serve one well to study the subject and garner all
the information available before attempting to cast out unclean spirits and to
be empowered as were the disciples. This isn’t a glamorous ministry for it is
dealing with the filthiest of Satan’s cohorts.
Further the subjects infected by these spirits have a
certain harmonious relationship with them. One man who exercised authority over
evil spirits was rebuked by the spirit he was dealing with; saying “You can’t
cast me out.” Upon asking the spirit, “Why
not?” the spirit said; “She don’t want me to leave so you can’t make me go.” In this case he said, “You’re exactly right,”
and left her in the same condition because she wanted the spirit’s influence in
Being more of the average type of a Christian I have not
majored in dealing with demons but on one of several occasions I was greeting
people as they came into the church and the Spirit of GOD spoke to me in a firm
voice saying; “This woman is possessed by the devil.”
This came out of the blue so to speak. She looked alright so
I questioned my sanity. I knew what I had heard but had to think on it till I
came to my senses and realized I had heard rightly. The fact I don’t get these
messages like that very often causes me to be a little shocked.
I began to focus my attention on her from that moment on.
She sat in the middle of a row in the middle of a section where it wasn’t easy
to get to her if she acted up. As the service started I joined the orchestra
and everything seemed to be in order until she stood up and yelled out many
things we didn’t need to hear.
When the ushers began to get near to her she stopped and
said; “And now I will leave” and left.
I only related that to show there are many varied way these
spirits will cause an individual to conduct themselves. She came back again and
asked for prayer but to my knowledge she wasn’t delivered for she didn’t want
the spirit to leave. There was enough of a desire to be rid of this spirit that
was driving her to come and asked to be prayed for but not enough to release
his hold on her.
GOD uses whatever is at hand and you might find yourself
being used on an occasion and never again but one who is used on a continuous
basis needs to have the anointing of the Holy Spirit and some of the other
gifts of the Spirit operating in their life.
Three gifts that reveal the unknown; the word of wisdom,
word of knowledge and the discerning of spirits are a must in order to be
effectual in this ministry. These gifts can give you inside information needful
for not making mistakes.
Not everyone who acts crazy is possessed. Some people are
just naturally nuts and silly. Also the gifts of Miracles and Healing may be a
part of the person’s deliverance.
While anyone who is a Christian may be used of God; people who are called and enabled as were the
disciples will have the greater success in dealing with unclean spirits so
don’t self-anoint yourself and get into trouble.
Here are some examples of Jesus dealing
with evil spirits;
11:14 Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man
who had been mute spoke, and the crowd was amazed.
8:16 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and
he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.
1:34 And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many
demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He
4:34-35 Let us alone! What business do
we have with each other, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are-- the Holy One of God!"
But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet and come out of him!" And
when the demon had thrown him down in the midst of the people, he came out of
him without doing him any harm.
16:15-17 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel
to all creation "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved;
but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. "These signs will accompany
those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak
with new tongues.
The bottom line is; this world is plagued by Unclean
Spirits. In every phase of life they are active. To deny this begs the answer;
why are people so base and evil? It also insults the spirits themselves to deny
Much of the ministry of Jesus was involved in casting out
spirits and the need for this ministry continues today.
