Good Morning Saints,
Topic: *Seven Ways To Stay Delivered From Demonic Oppressions*
By: Isaac O. Agbenla
You see, it is not enough to be delivered but we must constantly remain delivered if we are to enjoy our life on earth.
In Luke 11:24-26, Jesus gave a vivid example of the life of people who have been delivered but carelessly or ignorantly allow the enemy back into their lives. The worst thing about such categories of people is that the end is usually worst that the beginning.
I usually disagree that demons has categories until i read in the Luke 11:24-26 that evil spirit can go and call *more wicked spirit* to invade the life of a man who has been delivered, because he does nothing after been delivered. It is for this reason that I desire to share with you how to constantly remain full of God and untouchable for the enemy.
If you have not been involved in any form of oppression or obsession, you can also guide yourself against occurrence using this steps.
Some often ask, : “How do I know if I’m completely free?” well, no certificates will be issued! You must know how to recognize by observing changes since your last attempt to get over evil spirit manipulation or obsession. If you are addicted to an habit before but no more, that shows God has done it.
Note: All bad addictions are demonic. It is important to note that Jesus did not cast demons into the pit, or any other such place. He warned plainly that they will seek to return. Leave no area vacant- Matt. 12:43–45.
*Four Common Reasons Why Full Deliverance Is Not Obtained*
A. *Lack of true repentance*: It is only genuine repentance that can guarantee genuine deliverance. Some people seeks deliverance, yet they want to go back to their vomit and the channel through which the demons enter initially, it won’t work way.
B. *Failure to confess certain sins that is constantly bringing guilt or condemnation to your heart particularly those committed after you are already saved* – James 5:16): You may need to confide in someone who is a spiritual leader you trust. Most especially the one who is conducting deliverance for you in case you seek help outside your own strength .
C. *Failure to forgive others*- Mark 11:25–26: If you want God to forgive you, forgive others. If only you know what unforgiving attitude will bring upon you, you won’t keep malice.
D. *Failure to break away from the occult group-* Acts 19:25–26: You can’t drink the cup of God and that of devil.
*Seven Main Requirements For Keeping Deliverance*
1. Yield to the Lordship of Jesus in every area.
2. Be continuously filled with the Holy Spirit -Eph. 5:18.
3. Live by the Word of God- Luke 11:13; Acts 2:4; Matt. 4:4, 7, 11.
4. Put on the whole armor of God- Eph. 6:10–18. It includes the helmet of hope -1 Cor. 13:13; Rom. 8:28 and the “garment of praise-Luke 4:18; Heb 13:5
5. Cultivate right relationships.
6. Cultivate right fellowship. Both faith and unbelief come through what we hear Rom. 10:17; Mark 4:24; Luke 8:18; Prov. 19:27
7. Make Jesus central John 12:31–32
