BE SAVED

call me

By His Life

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:8-10

While were still sinners Christ died for us. When we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, Jesus, and now we are saved (being saved) through His ressurection life that lives in us. Yes, God now dwells in us and His LIFE permeates our SPIRIT, SOUL and BODY so that we are filled with the fullness of God daily and preach the whole counsel of God. (Romans 12:1,2; John 14:20, Acts 20:27.)  Our body is the temple of the HOLY GHOST and not our own.

Yes, if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God has raised Him from the dead, we will be saved.  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. The word “Saved” and “Salvation,” in the New Testament is the word “sozo” in the Greek language and has the meaning of: to save, i.e. deliver or protect, to heal, preserve, be (make) whole. Jesus used this very word every time He healed someone saying: “Your faith has made you whole.” Or “be made whole.”

Yes, God created His children for victory and through the cross of Christ He has given them victory and the power over all things (Deuteronomy 28:1-14, Isaiah 51:1-3,61:1-11,65:13-16, John 14:12-14,16:7-14, Romans 12;6, 1 Corinthians 3:21-22, 2 Corinthians 8:9, Ephesians 4:8, Galatians 3:3, James 2:5).  Through Christ Jesus,  we who once were poor have became rich in faith for through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might become rich and inherit the blessings of Abraham, spiritual and physical. And as a result whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever we  loose on earth will be loosed in heaven  and whatever things we ask when we pray, believe that we receive them, and we will have them.

Christ has “redeemed,” “brought out,” or purchased out us from underneath the weight of the oppression of the curse of the law so that we, being free from the curse would enjoy the blessings – the blessings of the Abrahamic covenant and the promise of the Spirit of God through faith!  We have been bought out from underneath the curse of the law. Therefore, according to the Scripture, sickness, disease, poverty or lack have no legal right to live in us or affect our life. It is illegal, for we have been redeemed. We can now take authority over the devil by commanding him to get out of our life and out of our affairs. We command sickness and disease and poverty and lack to go! Rebuke it in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We can set our will against it, and refuse to accept it – it doesn’t belong to us. We are a child of God!  We can command it all to be gone according to the Word of God. We can pick up the Sword of the Spirit and begin to slash our way to victory, proclaiming the Word of God regarding our healing and prosperity for all that God is and has is ours. God’s word is unchanging:

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. “He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. “All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. John 16:13-15

Yes, furthermore, I count everything as loss compared to the possession of the priceless privilege (the overwhelming preciousness, the surpassing worth, and supreme advantage) of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord {and} of progressively becoming more deeply {and} intimately acquainted with Him [of perceiving and recognizing and understanding Him more fully and clearly]. For His sake I have lost everything and consider it all to be mere rubbish (refuse, dregs), in order that I may win (gain) Christ (the Anointed One), And that I may [actually] be found {and} known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law’s demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith. [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]  That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]. Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) {and} make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me {and} made me His own. Philippians 3:8-12

Now if God is dwelling in us as Christians how come we are sick and have physical Infirmities?  Many diseases and physical infirmities are due to spirits of infirmity, unclean spirits or evil spirits to torment. “The thief cometh not but for to steal and to kill and to destroy.” (John 10:10) All stealing, killing, and destruction in our life have been from the devil. “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary walketh about seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8) When they brought to Jesus sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them (Matthew 4:24). And Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 1:12, 13:8). So if the enemy has devoured us in any way, Jesus wants us to be  restored and made whole.

In His earthly ministry, Jesus destroyed the works of the devil as He cast out demons and healed the sick. “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also.” (John. 14:12) Jesus has delegated His authority over the devil to His body, Christians, believers. It is now the responsibility of all believers to do the same works that He did and cast out demons to set the captives free!

Who is deliverance for? Unbelievers or believers? This question is important because many Christians have believed that Christians cannot have demons in them. Jesus said to the Greek woman who desired deliverance for her daughter, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of Israel.” (Mt.15:24) He was only sent to those who had a covenant with God, not to the worldly Gentiles. Jesus further said that deliverance was the “children’s bread” in Mark 7:27.

We further see that deliverance is for Christians because when demons are cast out, one can only stay free of the demons by walking in line with the Word of God. Those who walk in line with the Word are Christians. Thus, we see that deliverance could only be for believers in Christ. If demons were cast out of unbelievers, they would let the demons back in, since they would not walk according to the Word of God.

There are many Christians who have reasoned that there could not be any demons in them because the Holy Spirit is in them. They have concluded that no demons could be inside their soul or body because God’s presence dwells in them. That is logic from man and not from God. “Jesus went into the temple and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple . . . .” (Mk. 11:15) The Old Testament temple had three parts: the Holy of Holies, the Holy place, and the outer court. The New Testament temple of God is the believer in Christ. We are made up of three parts: spirit, soul, and body. In the Old Testament temple, God’s presence dwelt in the Holy of Holies. Wrongful buying and selling were going on in the temple in a different location than the Holy of Holies. Jesus cleansed the temple and “cast out” the wrongdoers. In like manner, God dwells in our spirit. Our soul or body can have spiritual wrong doers (demons) in them even though God dwells in our spirit. Demons do not dwell in our spirit. They dwell in the soul (will, intellect, and emotions) or the body. Demons do not leave our soul or body when we get born again; only the spirit is changed. Demons must be cast out of the soul and body. Just as Jesus cast out the physical wrongdoers out of the Old Testament temple, we must also cast out all the spiritual wrongdoers (demons) out of our temple.

How do demons enter a person? They come in through sin. Sin gives place to the devil so that demons can legally come and reside in us. Sin brings a curse, and curses are enforced by demons. Demons could not get into Jesus because He did not sin. We have all sinned and opened the door for demons to come in.

The number one way demons come into a person is from inheritance. “The iniquity of the fathers is visited upon the children to the third and fourth generation.” (Numbers 14:18) Every person is affected by inherited generational curses due to the sins of your fathers in the past generations. You probably have problem areas in your life which are like those your parents had.

Demons could have come into you while in the womb because of the actions of your parents. If you were not wanted, spirits of rejection probably came into you. Demons could have come in you throughout your childhood during times of fear, rebellion, rejection, abuse, or other traumatic events. During your adult life, demons could have come into you because of sin or any destructive events you have gone through. Any involvement in occult activity opens the door for demonic entrance.

Curses are the opposite of blessings. “The curse causeless shall not come.” (Prov. 26:2) In other words, there is always a cause for every curse, and that cause is sin. Curses are enforced by demon spirits. To get free, we need to get delivered from the demonic spirits which are the spiritual roots of our problems.

Jesus was made a curse for us that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Holy Spirit through faith. Jesus was made a curse that we might receive the blessing. In other words, we might not receive the blessing if we do not do something to receive the promise of God. The same distinction is spoken by the Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians 5:21: How that “Jesus was made to be sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in him..”

How do we receive deliverance in our life? First, we bind all demons in and around us. Next, we deal with all sin in our life. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) Fellowship with God is restored when our sins are confessed. This breaks any legal hold for demons to stay in us or affect our life any further.   Then, we break curses from our sins or sins against us, and from the sins of our ancestors. We do this by declaring the remission of our sins and remitting the sins of our ancestors in all previous generations influencing our life. Now we are ready to cast out the demons.

Jesus has given us authority to cast out demons. This authority is in the name of Jesus. With authority, we command the demons to come out in Jesus’ name! In the Old Testament, the Israelites took the physical land by driving out all the physical inhabitants. We take our spiritual land (the promises of God) by driving out all the spiritual inhabitants (demons). We continue to cast out demons in area after area of our life to possess our freedom. “By little and little, I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased and inherit the land.” (Ex. 23:30) Deliverance is a progressive walk, not an event.

As we cast out demons, we must fill ourselves with the Word of God in order to maintain our deliverance. The demons would like to come back into us, but they cannot as long as we walk in the ways of God and stay clear of sin. “Sin no more lest a worse thing come unto thee.” (John 5:14)

We fill ourselves with the Word when we hear and do it. We need to pray in tongues and pray with our understanding. We need to take our thoughts captive to the Word and think on good things. We must know our legal spiritual rights in Christ through study of the Word. We need to speak the Word of God and receive the promises. We need to praise and worship the Lord to fill ourselves with the Spirit. We need to be in church regularly. We must choose to forgive all those who have hurt us. We must repent from all sinful ways. We must walk in love toward everyone. As we do these things and follow the ways of the Lord, we will stay free of demons and maintain our deliverance.

Jesus daily preached the gospel of the kingdom, cast out demons, and healed the sick. We are to do the same. We all have demons to cast out because of sin. We also need to cast them out from our fellow believers to help them get free, also. If we pursue our enemies (demons) and destroy their works by aggressively casting them out, then the Lord “shall bruise Satan under [our] feet shortly (Ro. 16:20),” and we will be set free!

Jesus came for this very purpose that he might destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). The word might mean that the Lord has put a “condition” on whether it happens or not. Without a doubt, Jesus himself defeated Satan at Calvary, hands down. He made an open show of him triumphing over him in it and stripping him of all power and weaponry. Jesus put the devil in his place, and we are to keep him there, where he belongs — under our feet. We are to tread on serpents and scorpions, which means to walk on them. But most Christians have no idea how much power is available for them. They are so ignorant that they do not yet know how to use it effectively against the enemy. May the spirit of revelation knowledge and wisdom come upon every believer, that we may know all that has made available to them. God’s word is unchanging:

But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him? You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. Hebrews 2:6-8
