Since starting the series on Blog Talk Radio on Spiritual Warfare and Breaking Generational Curses, I have received numerous emails asking for help with or information about deliverance. I began doing the series in an effort to teach more believers about their authority to break curses and cast out demons in their own lives, since help from local churches is sometimes not readily available.
The Spiritual Battle Is Real and You're In ItThe spiritual battle going on around us and in our lives is very real. If you are just beginning to learn about this, you may want to listen to the first two episodes in the spiritual warfare series, called Pt 1 - Who Demons Are and Where They Come From:
Pt 2 - The Battle Is Real and You're In It
I have begun a book about Spiritual Warfare and Breaking Generational Curses. I have had many requests for information on how to break these types of curses once they are identified, and I will endeavor to share that type of information on this page to help those who are working on self-deliverance, trying to get their children free, etc.
How Demons Gain Access To HumansDemons gain access into our lives through a variety of methods. An important step in getting free is understanding how you became bound. If you would like to begin learning how demons gain access to humans, you can listen to the episode called Pt 3 - How Demons Gain Access to Humans, by clicking on this link:
What Are the Signs of Demonic Affliction?The first step in getting free is identifying the spirits you believe you are being afflicted by. If you are uncertain whether you are being afflicted, a good place to start is by listening to the episode called Pt 4 - Signs of Demonic Affliction. You can access that episode through this link:
Your Mind Is the BattlefieldOur minds are always the battlefield on which the fight against evil will be won or lost initially. Thoughts lead to behaviors. If we keep our thoughts pure, our behavior will stay pure as well. The enemy is always working to get wrong thoughts in so he can defile our minds, get us into deception, or get us into immoral behavior. It is important in our quest to walk holy that we learn how to cast down wicked imaginations and take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. You can listen to an episode on that subject here:
Getting free from sin can be a real struggle, especially if we are suffering from strongholds that began years ago. Scripture tells us if we submit ourselves to God and resist the devil, that he must flee. You can listen to an episode on how to submit to God and resist the devil here:
Casting Out DemonsHere is some basic how-to information to get you started if you are working on your deliverance.
If you believe you are being afflicted by a demon or group of demons, and you are a believer - meaning, if you believe Jesus died for your sins on the cross and God raised Him from the dead, and you have accepted Him as your personal savior, then you have the authority, or right, to use His name to make the demons leave you alone. You can cast them out and command them to return to hell where they belong by using this simple method:
Spirit of ______(name the spirit if you know its name)______, I command you in the Name of Jesus to depart from me. I command you to leave NOW in the Name of Jesus and return to your master the devil in hell. I command that you may never return to me again in Jesus Name. Go NOW!
Breaking Generational CursesA curse begins when someone in the father's blood line commits a sin and does not ever repent for it. Then the payment for that sin passes to the next person and keeps passing until someone repents. (Exodus 34:7: Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. (also found at Ex. 20:5, Num. 14:18 and Deut. 5:9).
The key is to ask the Lord to reveal to you (like in a dream or during prayer) what the generational curses are, or sometimes you can tell by what is manifesting in your life, then you can go before Him in prayer and honestly repent on behalf of whomever committed the sin, knowing their sin was displeasing to Him and ask Him to please forgive the sin and remove the iniquity from your bloodline. We know if we ask in genuine repentance for a sin to be forgiven that He always forgives. (I John 1:9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.)
Now command the curse to be broken in Jesus Name and to command it to fall to the ground and become nothing. Then command every demon assigned to your family because of the curse you just broke to become one spirit with every other spirit it brought or let in, to clean up all its filth and pick up every single seed it planted, to restore any damage it has done to you, and to leave immediately in the Name of Jesus and go back to its master the devil in hell, and that it may never return to you again.
Interceding and Doing Warfare On Behalf of OthersOften we desire not only to free ourselves, but to see those we love get free as well. There are things we can do that will work to help them get free, and others that will not work. You can listen to an episode about violently interceding on behalf of someone who is headed down a wrong path here:
and an episode called Battling on Behalf of Others - What Works? here:
I will be adding more to this page from time to time.
God bless you in your journey to getting free.
