Double Deliverance

May 2014

It was just before my trip abroad when I suddenly had the urge to ring the five-year old girl (now six) that I used to look after. I hadn't seen her or her family for many months. The urge was strangely strong that despite busy preparing for my trip, I made time to ring her.

To my horror, the family told me that their little girl had been seeing images of her grandmother lying dead on the ground (yet another grandmother case!). The little girl had never seen her grandmother. She was only a few months old when her grandmother passed away, but somehow she knew it was grandma. She said that the images would come into her mind at any random time during her waking hours. The images were upsetting her so much that she would always end up in tears. Immediately, I knew this was another demonic case. I offered to help straight away because to wait until after my trip would only prolong her suffering. So Rob and I visited to pray for her.

Though young as she was, we still made her go through the usual deliverance process of repentance, forgiving enemies, and making a stand for Jesus. With the family surrounding her and supporting us in prayers, Rob and I began to pray. We prayed against the transference of evil spirits and took the authority that was given to us by Christ Jesus. Calling on the help of the Holy Spirit, we cut soul ties to her past, and bound the powers of Familiar spirit, Hereditary spirit, spirit of Memories, spirit of Deception, Witchcraft and Grief, and commanded them all to leave her in the name of Jesus. Rob and I took turns praying either in tongues or in English, along with praises to God for the victory in Christ Jesus.

The little girl started to rub her forehead. She said that something was scurrying inside her forehead. Our prayers heightened with authority, claiming once again the victory we have in Jesus, and insistently commanding the evil spirits to leave. After a time, she then said she could feel forceful thumping inside her forehead. We knew then they were making their way out of her. I encouraged her to tell them to leave her in the name of Jesus (her own will against them will expedite their exit).

The fish in the fish tank (in the same room as us) started to act strangely; they were crashing themselves against the glass. There were definitely evil spirits in the room, and the fish knew it.

Soon after, the little girl said her forehead was not thumping anymore, she felt fine; the evil spirits have gone. Hallelujah! As she went back to her mother's arms. The little girl's 9-year old sister suddenly said that as we were praying, she started to feel weak. I became highly suspicious, I was aware that there may have been other evil spirits in the room that would have reacted to the prayers of deliverance we had just been conducting for the little girl.

I offered to pray for the 9-year old. She accepted. As we sat her in the middle of the room, we made her go through the same deliverance process as her little sister. Then as Rob and I started to pray, the 9-year old's upper torso began to shake and shiver violently. At times, she would double up as if in pain. Her eyes were streaming with tears, her face ashen. I could see fear in her eyes. It was painful to watch.

Just then the Holy Spirit gave me a word of knowledge, the 9-year old had the spirit of Fear in her, along with spirit of Curses, and spirit of Witchcraft from her ancestors. Rob and I prayed continuously, cutting her soul ties to the past. She continued to shake, shiver and cry. It felt like a very long time before her shaking finally calmed down. I knelt beside her and asked if she was OK. With face drenched in tears but also relief, she nodded and said,"Yes, they're gone!".

Four hours had gone by! It had been quite a night! 

Before we left, Rob and I prayed for the other members of the family, and for each room in the house to ensure no evil spirits were present. Then I remembered the fish. I went over to them in the tank and prayed over them. I remembered Jesus once cast out a legion of demons and gave them permission to go into a herd of pigs. I wanted to make sure that the fish were not housing demons as the pigs were. I wanted them to be OK. After praying for them, I spent a moment watching them - they were swimming peacefully. We left that night praising God for helping the family.

Three weeks on, after coming back from my trip abroad, I rang both girls to see how they were. They have been fine, there have been no grandmother images, no feeling of fear, no sightings of any evil spirits or unusual occurrences since the deliverance took place. Hallelujah!

Praise be to God for His faithfulness and mercy! Praise be to the Lord Jesus for the authority and victory that are given us, and to the Holy Spirit for the power and partnership we have in Him to help others. Amen.

1 Corinthians 15:57
57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 108: 12-13
12 Give us aid against the enemy, for human help is worthless.
13 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
