The most important part of the deliverance process is finding out what the demons are how the devil is operating and what needs to be done in order to remove the bondage. The Gifts of the Holy Spirit play a very important role in the process. We must rely upon the Gifts of Discerning of Spirits and Words of Knowledge. Tonight during a typical deliverance secession Mrs. “R” had a Word of Knowledge that the demon we were dealing with (Strongman) was asmodeus. I quickly goggled, asmodeus and found that he was a demon of lust and was according to Wikipedia responsible for twisting people’s sexual desires. I had counseled with this gentleman earlier and knew his problem was lust and pornography. I was much delighted to see that the Lord was revealing its name. I therefore called it out. He burst into tears while we dealt with a few minor demons.
I like to educate the person that I am ministering to for a few reasons. First, this allows both of us to understand the process. Second, it teaches them to use the name of Jesus when the devil returns. I like to give them a basic understanding of soul ties, generational curses (what their parents, others, etc. may have done), strongholds, look for occult connections, etc. It is always a good idea to ask the person about their family history to reveal possible generational bondages. Describing how these strongholds grab the person will better help them to understand their own situation. Throughout this process, the Holy Spirit may reveal things or bring to memory things which may need to be addressed by the deliverance team. Throughout this step of the process, you may want to make notes of things that come up which need to be repented of, broken, or torn down. You should have a legal pad full of notes, clues to what spirits need to be cast out.
The next step in the process is going through and breaking up legal grounds though repentance of sins, renouncing ungodly vows, breaking soul ties, renouncing curses and hexes, and breaking generational curses. During this stage, it is quite common to have spirits manifest, so be prepared to cast it out, if needed at this stage. Keep an eye out for the times when the spirits come up, for example, if a spirit surfaces while the person is breaking a soul tie, then you can be pretty sure that it is hanging onto that soul tie and is upset that you’re breaking it. If you pay attention to what steps the person is taking when the spirits come up, it clues you into what kind of spirit you’re dealing with. It is also helpful to stop once in a while and ask how the person feels, if they feel pressure, confusion, pain; it can indicate a spirit that is manifesting. The person should also be able to tell when something has left them.
Taking authority in Jesus’ name, you begin to bind all spirit(s) to themselves in the person and cast them out.
