Hi guys I’ve been wanting to do this article for a while. A basic set of steps for getting free of oppression. If you haven’t read it yet I recommend you read this article before going further.
Many people already know or at least have a suspicion about what opened a door to let demons into their life. If this is not the case with you start here. Generally when we have trouble with demons there is something in our life that the Lord doesn’t approve of. In other words a sin.
First you need to ask the Lord what it is. Sometimes a sin is something we don’t recognize as a sin. Ask the Lord. It’s His call. A simple prayer something like this.
“Lord Jesus I am having trouble with demons and I suspect there is something in my life that you don’t approve of. Master I ask that you tell me what it is so that I can repent of it and kick it out of my Life. Lord Jesus I ask this in Your Holy Name.”
If you don’t get an answer right away stay on it. Ask the Lord regularly until you get an answer. The Lord will tell you in a way that He chooses. Whatever it is give it the boot. Don’t Try to rationalize a sin that you enjoy in order to keep it.
Once the sin/demon door has been identified repent of it and confess it. A simple prayer something like this.
“Lord Jesus, Master I have sinned against you. I have (insert sin here). I repent of this Lord and I ask your forgiveness for it. Lord Jesus I ask this In your Holy name.”
This prayer must be said out loud so the demons can hear it and know that you have taken it to the Lord. Demons can’t read your mind but they do have great hearing.
Next break the contract. Demons operate on contracts that they assume to exist. Contracts that they assume give them a legal right to invade your life. Here’s an example. Someone goes to a palm reader. It could be innocent enough with the sinner not knowing that he is dabbling in divination which the word of God says plainly not to do. In a demon’s mind he is thinking “Aha so and so is dabbling in divination, that our turf, he is contracted with us now”. I doesn’t matter whether or not a victim agreed to any contract. When a demons sees rebellion he assumes the contract to exist and acts on it. Once the sin is confessed to the Lord and forgiveness is asked for, the contract has no substance and can be broken in Jesus’ name. A simple statement something like this.
“I have confessed (insert sin here) to the Lord Jesus and asked forgiveness for it. In the name of Jesus any contracts with demons, associated with that sin are now broken and rendered null and void. In Jesus’ name.”
This is a statement not a prayer. You aren’t asking anything you are establishing something. This must also be said out loud so the demons can hear it and know that the contract is ended.
Some people have more than one sin in their life that is giving demons a foothold. Ask the Lord Jesus to tell you of any others and follow the same procedure for whatever He shows you.
We are human and will always have conflict as long as we are in the flesh. Some sins are hard to kick. Stay on it don’t give up and accept the sin. Never leave it unconfessed. Even if you have to confess a sin every day for a while until you can kick it permanently, never leave it unconfessed.
After you have confessed to the Lord and then broken the contract command the demons in Jesus’ name to flee from you and stay out of your business.
Now a note about commanding demons in Jesus name. This does work and it should be done. Those things can’t disregard the authority of the Lord’s name. But if a demonic door is left open the thing will come right back as long as it knows it has a legal right. Get the sin out of your life and close the door. Then when you command them in Jesus’ name to leave they will stay gone. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t command demons in Jesus name to flee from you while you are still struggling to kick the sin out of your life. Of course you should. The Lord gives it to His servants to exercise the authority of His name. But it’s a treatment for the symptoms and not for the cause. Use it while you are getting sin out of your life. But once you develop a walk with the Lord you will seldom need it. Do things the Lord’s way and demon problems will fade until they are no longer an issue in your life.
