FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS REGARDING
What is deliverance?
Deliverance, for our purposes, is the cleansing and
healing of the soul after identifying
and breaking off the strongholds, soul ties, generational iniquities, and
other attachments of the enemy - in order to claim the full freedom that Jesus
died for. (Philippians 2:12)
What is the soul?
The soul, for our purposes, is the mind, will, and
emotions. The will is all our own. The mind and the emotions, however, are
where the enemy can build strongholds
from which he can operate.
What is a stronghold?
A stronghold by definition is a fortress. (2
Corinthians 10:3-5) A stronghold can be good (God is our stronghold) or it can
be bad (when it’s a place from which the enemy operates.) With the deliverance
process, we identify the roots causes of the strongholds and ask Jesus to take
back all of the ground that has been given to the enemy and remove the
stronghold from the soul.
What is a soul tie?
A soul tie, basically speaking, is an unhealthy
connection with another person. This happens most frequently through
fornication, but we will be exploring other possible ways an unhealthy soul tie
can form between two people. (I Corinthians 6:16)
What are generational iniquities?
Generational iniquities are the sins of our forefathers
that were passed down through the generations. (Exodus 34:6-7)
How do I know if I need deliverance?
Everyone needs deliverance, but we only do deliverance
on Christians, because they are the only ones who have the ability to have
their “clean, empty rooms” filled up with the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 12:43-45)
How does one know when he is free in Christ?
You know you are free in Christ when you are able to
live in the moment. No longer will the memories of the past haunt you or
thoughts of the future cause you fear. No longer will you be self-focused on your
problems and issues. You will be confident in who you are in Christ, and you
will be able to go forward and help others, using whatever gifting God has
given you. (John 8:36)
