Demonology And Deliverance


Notes & Outline from Demonology & Deliverance, Volume 1 Workbook by Dr. Lester Sumrall

Note: The two-volume set of “Demonology & Deliverance” workbooks by Dr. Sumrall are an excellent resource for any believer willing to look seriously into this very biblical issue. I strongly recommend them as stand alone resources even though they were designed to work in conjunction with Dr. Sumrall’s video teaching series on this subject.

XVIII.  Can a Christian be Possessed with a Devil?

Introduction: This is the most asked question. Read Ephesians 6:12.

  1. There is a very real battle of definitions going on in the religious world. It centers around who can and who cannot be possessed of a demon. It does not matter to which church a person goes or is a member of if he or she needs deliverance from a tormenting spirit of fear or oppression of the devil. That person should be set free by a prayer of deliverance and not begin a dialogue on who can or who cannot be possessed.
  2. First the Positive side: the Twelve (Matthew 10:1)

Jesus did not warn the apostles to protect themselves against demon power. Above all, He did not warn them that they may become possessed or injured while rebuking demons. Jesus gave them divine authority over all demonic forces. The Bible nowhere teaches disciples to fear the devil or of a danger of personal demon possession.

  1. Then the seventy disciples cast out (Luke 10:17-19)

Jesus did not warn the seventy in any way to protect themselves against demon power or to be careful in the way they handled evil spirits. Jesus did not warn them of any personal danger but commanded them to cast out devils without fear, and said, “…nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

  1. The Great Commission to all (Mark 16:17)
  2. The divided
    1. Jesus said that a kingdom divided against itself cannot (Mat. 12:25)
    2. One cannot be an effective part of two opposite (Mat. 6:24)
    3. The Apostle James asked if sweet and bitter waters could come from the same (James 3:11)
  3. The positive (James 4:7)
    1. First is submitting ourselves to God which means that we refuse to submit to the devil’s presence or his deceiving
    2. Second is resist the Resistance is a military action. To resist shows strength. God declares that upon this action, the devil will fell from you. To flee is not just to crawl, walk, or even run. A fleeing person runs in terror.
    3. When the devil understands that a Christian has a strong position in God and that he is actively resisting him, the Bible declares that the devil will I have always found the Bible to be true.
    4. If a Christian actively, persistently, dogmatically, and spiritually resists the devil, then the Bible says that he will
    5. If the devil will run from us in terror, why should Christians be afraid of him? How can he hurt them?
  4. The battle action: protection for Ephesians 6:10-18
  5. The deaf and (Matthew 9:32-33) A deaf person in this way would not go to hell, so would that necessarily apply to some other situations.
  6. How a church member got

“When a person deliberately goes into the devil’s territory, while he is there it is possible to become a victim of whatever the devil offers, even thought the person claims to be a Christian.”

  1. How a person yields to demon
    1. Anger can be a spirit and can actually make a person
    2. Adultery is a
    3. A professing church member can open the doors of his soul and spirit to lust, jealousy, or lying. (2 Timothy 2:24-26)
  2. My “old” “unequivocally no”
  3. The “Word”
    1. The Bible says in 5:18, “Be filled with the Spirit, and in so doing you give no place to the devil.” Those who do not follow this command to be filled with the Spirit give place to the devil to enter their lives.
    2. If a person who claims to be a Christian dabbles with the occult, he can become demon (1 Timothy 4:1)
    3. If a church member lies like Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5:1-11, he gives room to
    4. Betraying the truth like (Luke 22:3)
    5. Simon, a sorcerer, was apparently among those participating in the revival in Samaria (Acts 8:13-23)
    6. The man in the synagogue, a place of religion, needed (Mark 1:23)
    7. King (1 Samuel 10:9)

XIX & XX. How I Learned Exorcism of Devils.

  1. Girl in (She writhed on the floor like a serpent)
  2. Black and White Angels in (The enemy is a liar)
  3. Not a human “… it was not me, personally, in the conflict. It was something within me, which was Christ.”
  4. No

“I discovered that there was no reason for fear because I did not lose the battles. I found that though they would scream and tear themselves, the did not seek to harm or touch me, and that I was perfectly safe in exorcising demons. I found in most cases that the demons wanted to run away and not confront me.” STAND FIRM on Mark 16:15-17.

  1. Projected (1 Timothy 4:1)
  2. The Last Days. (see Rev. 12:12, 16:13-16, 9:1-11)
  3. The barking (In Poland, woman shrieking “Hallelujah” and then barking)
  4. The dumb (St. Louis area, young man who hadn’t spoken in over 3 months)
  5. The “father divine” (A cult leader’s influence broken for healing in a household)
  6. Clarita Villanueva – Manila (Affected who city)
  7. The invisible (Philippines boy who would do just that.)
  8. The More than ever before.

XXI & XXII. Seven Steps Toward Demon Possession.

  1. Regression. Reversion to earlier behavior patterns; to go

This can be resisted and overcome by prayer and praise unto the Lord.

  1. To restrain; to squeeze; to prevent natural expression; to keep down; to hold back.
    1. God makes every human an God desires exuberant expression from us.
    2. Repressive (1 Kings 8:65-66, 2 Chronicles 7:8-10)
    3. Repressive homes and
  2. To press under; to keep back; to conceal; to exclude desire and feeling. With suppression we have the concealment or greater pressures moving against the victorious Christian life.
  3. Low spirits; gloominess; dejection; sadness; a decrease in force or activity; an emotional condition, either neurotic or psychotic, characterized by feelings of hopelessness or inadequacy.
    1. In depression, there is a broken To remain depressed for a long period of time is of the devil. Psalm 42:5, 103:1.
