A New Deliverance

A lady who had been oppressed and possessed by demons for many years was set free from more than forty of them over the last two weeks at the workshop.  However, what is different about her case is this:  The demons were given an opportunity to confess “Jesus Christ has come in the flesh,” and “Jesus Christ is coming again in the flesh,” which according to 1 John and 2 John can only be spoken by spirits that belong to God and by those who are not deceivers.  Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. [1 John 4.2-3]  Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. [2 John 7]

Members of the Sydney workshop witnessed the demons crying out, “Jesus Christ has come in the flesh!” and “Jesus Christ is coming again in the flesh!” as they left the woman.  Now a sign is nothing without the fruit.  The woman has been free from fear for two days now, and a deep love and appreciation of the Lord have developed.

What does this mean?  For it is a radical departure from the usual binding and casting out of demons that is practiced.  Is it error?

No, for the disciples practised driving out demons as Jesus did during their two years when they were being taught and shown by Jesus.  Believers are able to drive out demons in His Name, as Jesus said in Mark 16.17… believers, mind you.  So what can disciples who are fully trained and equipped with the authority and power of the Kingdom of God do?  I refer to John 14.12, “He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”

Driving out demons is done by the believers, but this is for those who are fully trained… a greater thing.  If you only drive out demons, they are still free to roam and trouble others and come back.  It is like driving out a thief, he is still free to come back to steal at another time.  However, by causing and letting the demons confess Jesus as per 1 John and 2 John, then they are now spirits of God and no longer deceivers.  They are transformed and can no longer come back to bother us again.  This is effective elimination of demonics once and for all, and a depletion of the numbers of demons that can oppose us.

It is a departure from the tradition, but then the Holy Spirit’s Workshop is not about maintaining tradition, especially traditions that do not work.  We are about developing practices based on Jesus’ words that achieve the results promised by Jesus.  If deviation from tradition upsets you, then so be it.  However, we will not apologise for the ‘new,’ for unless the blind can see, the lame can walk, the deaf can hear and the dumb can sing in the churches, we have not honoured the Lord, the Lord and the Lord at Their word.
