Luke 12:24 

Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!

Who provides for the raven its prey, when its young ones cry to God for help, and wander about for lack of food?

Luke 12:7 

Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 6:25-34 

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Romans 8:32 

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

Self deliverance is possible!

Deliverance

After we learned how to do deliverance on each other, God had us do it on ourselves. It helps to know the exact name of the demon you are casting out, but it isn’t necessary. Sometimes it’s a guessing game, and you can guess based on past experience, what type of demon is in you. So far in my experience, they tend to come out of a persons mouth, we’d just say something (with faith) like, “I repent of X”, or “X, I cast you out in Jesus name!” Usually I can go with a pretty long list of names in my head and some of them will be hits and some misses, I guess it’s the shotgun approach. The first time I did it on myself I went through a long list of demon powers, and I remember vomiting out a spirit of anti Christ I had from an atheist stage in my life. More recently I had to cough of a spirit of X (not naming it) which was taking residence in my brain and after that I had a bad head ache for a while. These things can only take up residence in you and stay there if they have legal ground, but if they don’t have legal ground they can be cast out, although they’d rather just hide in you and go undetected after they have lost legal ground. These things (spirits of the air, demons, evil spirits) can also alter a humans behavior, their goal is to drag humanity into so much sin that they cannot be cast out, or they remain hidden and cause the person to misbehave at strategic points of a persons life, and they try to make it look like they are just part of that persons ‘personality’. Also, if you sincerely repent these things lose legal ground.

Something that almost tripped me up was thinking I was doing it under my own power, when it was really Jesus who cast them out, it’s a mental trap. Even though it requires your own faith, you cannot cast these things out by your own power, you have to be clear that it is Jesus casting out the things.

When they are cast out, sometimes they make a weird noise, like a scream, a mans voice, or some other demonic vocalization.

Just want you to know that self deliverance is possible! 🙂 The easiest way is to talk to the evil spirit within a person saying, X, I cast you out in the name of Jesus! Look into Derek Prince or Win Worely on how to cast out evil spirits.

The Sword is the Word

Scripture

Romans 8:1 – There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. — Use this word when you are feeling like you are facing condemnation!

Luke 4:8
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'”

Luke 4:12
It is said, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.

Luke 4 – It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God

Isaiah 61:3 – “the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness” When you feel down and depressed, praising God will lift the spirit of heaviness

James 4:7 – “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Psa 118:17 – I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

Is 54:17 – No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against us in judgment we do condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and our righteousness is of you, Lord of Hosts.

2 Cor 9:8 – And God is able to make all grace abound toward us; that we always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work

Phil 4:13: I can do all things through the one who empowers me within.

1 Peter 2:24: Jesus himself, bore our sins, in his own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness, by his wounds we were healed.

2 chronicles 14:11 – Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. Lord, you are our God; do not let man  prevail against you

2 chronicles 20:6 – Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.

1 Corinthians 3:16 – Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

Matthew 7:21 – I Never Knew You

Salvation

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Here is what I think upon reading this. First, the will of the father is to believe in the Son, as per John 6:40, which states:

For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

So we can conclude that the people in this passage did not believe in Christ for their salvation. What then did they trust? The passage appears to show they trusted in their good works and never had a relationship with Jesus. Jesus exposes trusting in their works as evil because he calls them workers of lawlessness.

On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

So, to sum it up, this passage speaks about people who

  1. Never believed on the Son (Jesus) for their salvation
  2. Trusted in their good works to get to heaven
  3. Never had a relationship with Jesus

Also, another possibility,

4. They never truly repented and they are considered a ‘carnal Christian’

How are we saved?

Salvation

Ephesians 2:8-9 states: For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Titus 3:5 states: He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit

Romans 10:9 states: Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

It is therefore abundantly clear, the only thing we are saved by is being covered in the blood of Jesus, through God’s mercy and grace.

It is not based on works done by us in righteousness, because then we could boast about what we did, not what HE did. In fact, those who trust in their works may be excluded from heaven! Because Matthew 7:21-23 states

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

It sounds like these people were trusting in their works, and Jesus says depart as he calls their works evil!

However, repentance is an indicator of whether one has true saving faith. People with true saving faith will be changed by Christ, and not be living like the world, because they will have a change of mind that leads to action. While that does not save them- it is an evidence of faith, and a fruit of it, and will tell you if you have true saving faith, and are born again! Salvation doesn’t come from faith AND works, but faith THAT works.
