The Need For The Deliverance Ministry
Jesus Christ, as presented by The Father and Jesus’ testimony is according to the Word, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All powers given to me in heaven and in earth . . . ” Matthew 28:18, He is revealed as Deity with absolute sovereignty and authority for eternity.
WHO NEEDS HELP?
Are you wrestling with problems that you are not in control?
Would you like help from being Depressed? Abused? Afraid? Tormented? Suicidal? Sick? Alcoholic? Addict? Obese? Homosexual (gay, lesbian)? Witchcraft? Satanist? Brotherhood? Want out of the occult or a cult? In bondage to porno? OCD? MPD? DID? Molester? Self-Abuse? Bi-polar? Etc.? You can be free! The only answer to receive help for all your personal problems is through deliverance in the Name of JESUS CHRIST. The solution is to cast these DEMONS out.
You must want help to receive help. Let your pride go and humble yourself before the Lord. You must be honest with yourself that you need help. Then you have to be completely honest with Jesus and the minister that He chooses to minister to you. You will have to become a sincere worshiper of Jesus Christ, John 4:23. This means that you should be ready to change your lifestyle. Luke 13:3 ,” I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
Many Christians are prone to be unbelieving with respect to the existence of spirits and demons. However, demons do exist and they are responsible to Satan for deceiving curious humans.
Many ask this question, can a Christian be made subject to occult powers? Some spiritual authorities believe they can! For sure, dabbling in the occult and even reading books on the black arts can bring much distress and demon possession. Anyone who wishes to learn about these demons, should consult only books written by evangelical Bible scholars for their information. The Apostle Paul teaches, “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: Ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table and of the devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?” I Corinthians 10: 21,22.
Christians worldwide are experiencing problems that are driving them to do things that they would not want to do. Many of these problems are a direct result of generational curses in their bloodlines. Others are experiencing demonic activity because they have participated in sins that invited the demons to come to them. Open doors for devils can afflict them in body, soul, spirit. The demons can set into action problems in their minds, wills, emotions, and spirits being bound by the powers of darkness.
Many have discovered to their surprise and horror that Satan is the one who is willing to divulge supernatural personal business and give momentary assistance. Often too late, they find that the real sourse of their advice and supernatural ability is demonic. Confusion results and many end up become weak, going into insane asylums and never return— Some die! Occult powers come from Satan. When one uses occult power he or she opens a door for devils to enter into their spirit. Once the door is opened, very few victims ever escape or come out of demonic captivity.
How a person opens “doorways” into their lives that allows demons to possess or afflict.
When these powers take dominion, what will the outward result be?
Emotional Problems: Resentment, hatred, anger, fear, rejection, jealousy, depression, worry or insecurity.
Mental Problems: Procrastination, indecision, doubt, confusion, compromise or loss of memory.
Speech Problems: Lying, cursing blasphemy, criticism, mockery, railing or gossip.
Sex Problems: Fantasy Sex, masturbation, lust, perversions, homosexuality, lesbiansim, fornication, incest, harlotry or child conceived out of wedlock.
Addictions: Nicotine, alcohol, drugs, medicines, caffeine or food, etc.,
Occult Involvement or Religious Error: Witchcraft, spirit guides, horoscopes, false religions, eastern religions, mind sciences, false doctrines, yoga, martial arts, yoga, reincarnation.
Physical Infirmities: Many diseases and physical infirmities are due to spirits of infirmity, unclean spirits or evil spirits to toment and ancestral bloodline spirits.
God created us as three-part beings. We have bodies that are physical and spiritual, and then we have our eternal soul. At death, the physical and the spiritual [personality] dies and ceases to exist. However, the eternal soul goes back to God.
The Apostle Paul gives us some special insight on this matter. Each person has a physical and spiritual Body — “There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body,” 1 Corinthian 15:44. In the next passage, Paul tells us that the physical body itself is comprised of two parts, body and spirit. He tells us that we are temples for God to dwell. “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” 1 Corinthian 6:19. This Scripture reveals a three-part construction of each human being!
The problem for Satan is that he cannot just come on in, without invitation or speaking in legal terms, he must be given “legal authority” to come into the inner soul of a person, by some action or inaction on the part of that person. Demons cannot just hop into people whenever they want. There is a spiritual wall placed there by God so that demons cannot get it unless we break down the wall of God’s protection.
DOORWAYS OF SIN
Inheritance Curses come from family lines. If anyone in your immediate past was involved in witchcraft in any way, and that includes Freemasonry, Mormonism, or any false religion, you need to identify these ancestors and specifically ask the Holy Spirit to close that door and seal it.
The occult is defined as secretive-hidden knowledge or wisdom beyond human understanding. It could also be described as supernatural detection from sources other than God. “The secret things (hidden knowledge) belong to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us,” Deuteronomy 29:27.
There are only two sources for supernatural power: Jesus or Satan. Seeking power beyond the Word of God and Jesus Christ finds one stepping into the world of the Occult.
The occult is very religious and many seeking it hope to for find a reason for their existence and to fill a void in their soul. Instead, they will enter a door that very few ever return back. Once entrapped by the Devil, the person’s mind, body and spirit will be totally bound by the powers of darkness. The only way out of this dark chamber, is through the grace of God and the Blood of Jesus Christ!
Strife is one Satan’s to the highest degree powerful divisive tactics. It operates through offenses, anger, the green-eyed monster of envy, contentions, slander, gossip, competitions, jealousies, spitefulness and factions. All these are opposites of the agape love believer are obligated to God to exhibit.
The Scriptures gives notice of the danger concerning the spirit of strife. ” For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?” 1 Corinthians 3:3 1.
The Bible warns us that the spirit of strife is a work of the flesh! Galatians 5:19-21, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Scripture states clearly that strife and envy are “sensual, devilish” and that where it exists “there is every evil work.”
Scripture says strife is profane, and carnal and devilish. James 3:14-18, “But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.”
The word translated “devilish” inspired by demons. Strife is never from God, but is a very useful tool to Satan to open the door for spiritual destruction. The greatest dangers of corruptive strife are hidden behind the actual incidents generating them. These are legal openings through which demonic forces can gain enty.
Because chronic strife is a sin against love, it loosens many demonic forces. Sometimes this is in the areas not directly related to the incidents causing the problems. Striving is often observed even in the work of the Lord. This indicates immaturity and a lack of understanding of Biblical principles. As the Apostle Paul says, 2 Timothy 2:24-26, “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”
The spirit of strife has many times destroyed Christian homes and marriages. Many of the victims never recognized the source of their problems. God is not the author of strife and behind the facade of contentions and offenses there are vile and evil forces launching an attack designed to obliterate. Our warfare is said to be against the “wiles” (tactics and strategeies) of the devil.
The opposite spirit of strife is shown in Galatians 5:22-26, ” But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”
Ignorance of the enemy’s devices will definitely give him an advantage and. will guarantee partial or complete inability to stand against the demonic enemy. The Bible says we must be discerning to his designs, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we ae not ignorant of his devices,” 2 Corinthians 2:11.
The central role of strife in the function of Satanic dominion does not prevent any other curse from operating. Strife is a primary tool to loose other demonic damage when it is unresisted by agape love. The degree of deception and delusion under which the victim labors determines susceptibility and openness to demonic daminion. (1)
1 Corinthians 13:1-8– 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
ACCESS FOR DEMONIC CONTROL
Sexual Sins Demons are passed from one person to another through sexual sins. Sex with the opposite sex outside of marriage. Sex with someone who is not your spouse.
Sex with the same sex — homosexuality or lesbianism.
Sex with children.
Sex with animals
Sadomasochism — In alternative lifestyle magazines, you will discover very large sections devoted to sadomasochism.
Sex with demons — This type of sex is usually reserved only for people who have been involved in the occult. However, a person heavily into pornography and prostitution can also experience this phenomenon. witchcraft, Satanism, and eastern religions experience sexual intercourse of various sorts with spirits. In Africia this is called having a spiriual wife or husband. In Asian countries, this is called ‘astral-sex’.
INCUBUS – A spirit or demon thought in medieval times to lie on sleeping persons, especially women, with whom it sought sexual intercourse.
SUCCUBUS – In folklore, a female demon thought to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men.
Above definitions came from Webster’s Dictionary.
INCUBI – Demonic sexual attacks on females; may be caused by sexual sins, witchcraft spells, curses of lust, inherited curses, can attack children
SUCCUBI – demonic sexual attacks on males, may be caused by the same as Incubi above
We can forget medieval times and folklore, these demons are for real and active! These demons have sex with both men and women as the person sleeps, AND SOME OF YOU KNOW IT. It’s not a dream, and it is not your imagination, it’s evil supernatural experiences!
The following excerpts are from Erica Joseph of Breakthrough Missions (from Tampa, Florida, address unknown) in a booklet titled “Sex with demons – Nightmares, Incubus and Succubus”
Sexual experiences with demonic spirits are very real even in this day and age. Erica Joseph says, “I have personally taken both men and women through DELIVERANCE, that have experienced this and some became bound by the spirits of Incubus and Succubus. I have personally taken both men and women through DELIVERANCE, where the witch or warlock has actually, through the use of astral travel, seduced them, having sexual relations with them as they slept, with them thinking it was only a dream and this is arranged through the utilization of “Familiar” spirits.”
Revelation Joseph continues, “In every DELIVERANCE situation of this nature the one thing that has been required is total and complete honesty from the person seeking the DELIVERANCE. I have taken some individuals through DELIVERANCE and the Holy Ghost has caused those spirits to manifest (reveal themselves). Some individuals have enjoyed the sexual experience with those demons, thus DELIVERANCE was not effective.” She goes on to say, “In some instances, I have found that those spirits have entered in through masturbation and fantasy lust. If the individuals renounce the fantasy lust and stopped masturbating, they were DELIVERED. I have taken several individuals through DELIVERANCE from those demons and I’ve found that people have been violated (raped) by spirits, not actually wanting to believe it or not understanding what happened to them until DELIVERANCE revealed it. But they know that they had experienced something painful and undesirable.”
Amazingly, she proceeds to write, “I have taken individuals through DELIVERANCE, that have felt the bed moving, felt their bodies responding uncontrollably, yet their rational, logical mind could not comprehend it. So they wrote it off as a dream. These demonic spirits that function in this sexually perverse way must be renounced and cast OUT, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Essentially, the incubus is a lewd demon which seeks sexual intercourse with women. It is also termed follet (French), alp (German), duende (Spanish) and folletto (Italian). The corresponding demon who appears to men is the succubus. When associated with one particular witch or sorcerer, both incubus and succubus is known as magistellus, or “familiar.” Inasmuch as the nightmare dream is sexual in latent content, an incubus is often used interchangeably with The Mare Demon; in fact, the Latin word for nightmare is incubo (to lie upon). The incubus can assume either a male or a female shape. Sometimes he appears as a full-grown man. Sometimes as a satyr or in the form of a demon, and if it is a woman who has been received as a witch, the incubus generally assumes the form of an animal.
A succubus is a demon in female form, specialized in seducing men. Although feminine in meaning, in form this medieval Latis word, succubus, is masculine (because demons were supposedly sexless) the feminine form succuba (strumpet) is occasionally found.
If you have, or are having dreams or nightmares of a sexual nature that you know are as real as life, dreams where you cannot exactly distinguish the real from the unreal, please seek DELIVERANCE. Don’t allow Satan and his demonic hosts to degrade your body which is the Temple of God.
The demon MARE: Works with the Incubus and Succubus demons. This demon is alleged to cause dreams of sexual content coupled with those evil spirits.
NIGHT SPELLS: Charms or enchantments by night, used by witches and warlocks.
NIGHTMARE or MARE: The demon or mare alleged to cause bad dreams. The dream itself is called a nightmare.
MARE: The supposed demon which, during the night, sits on the chest and causes feelings of suffocation and choking. Causing a feeling of being paralyzed and that the weight is crushing the breath out of a person
There are humans who have the ability for out of body experiences. These spirits are “visiting” you as you sleep. Cutting their silver cord, in the name of Jesus, will make them disappear.
If you are attacked by these demons, pray this way –
In the name of Jesus, I bind up these demons, and I command them to leave me and my home.
I cut all ungodly silver cords. (2)
If you are unable to speak, you can just THINK these prayers or the word JESUS. It works!
The physical partner experiences all the physical sensations of sex although the partner is a spirit and not physical at all. Many times’ sexual encounters with demons will be interpreted as ‘dreams’, but the person awakes sexually aroused. This can be the cause of frequent ‘wet-dreams’ in men. The sin of masturbation frequently leads to sex with demons because of the intensive visualization involved.”(3)
Some other demons are accusers of the brethren, pride, self-righteousness, respectability, selfish-ambition, unrighteous judgment, and jealousy. Also dabbling with the supernatural apart from God sush as, Astrologers, numerologists, New Age channelers, palm readers, phone psychics and other so-called seers are making millions of dollars playing the “game.” They will plot your destiny or advise you on any matter for a handsome fee. Some will predict the outcome of the next presidential election or tell of the exact date the world will end! “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of Antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world,” (I John 4:3.)

PAT HOLLIDAY PATHOLLIDAY.COM Miracle Outreach Ministries
PLEASE CHECK OUT THE CRITIQUE BY EVANGELIST PASTOR GORDON WILLIAMS
Pat Holliday is wrong. This complete so-called chapter 1 is completely unscriptural. She is Scripturally ignorant and she fits in with the Scribes to whom Jesus said, “You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29). She, like so many ignorant people have not learned that we are in a New Testament Covenant in which some of the OT teaching have been brought into the New. But teaching about generational sin and curses was not one of them. If Pat had taken the time to read Jeremiah 31: 29 – 37 and Ezekiel 18: 1 – 32. In those two Scriptures, God removes the law of Generational Sin and Curses” being passed on to the third and fourth generations or any generations fir all people and made this an important change for the “New Covenant”(Jer. 31: 31). Each person is now responsible for their own sin. When Jesus had healed the man who had been blind for birth, His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, whose sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” They thought that he was the victim of generational sin or a curse. Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be made manifest in him” (Jn. 9: 2, 3). No place in the New Testament is generational sin and curses mentioned. So, this means that we cannot blame some sin on our ancestors. To do so, is just what Adam tried to do himself. Remember, he said, “The woman whom thou gavest to be with me gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate it” (Gen. 3: 12). He not only tried to blame his wife but to blame also for giving her to be with him. We cannot pass any blame on to previous relatives. It’ exactly doing something God has declared null and void and that is the reason why it is not even mentioned in the New Testament Covenant.
The Scripture does not mention anything like “demonic doorways”. The Scriptures tell us that “All have sinned and and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3: 23). And the Pharisees told the man who was healed of his blindness, “You were born in utter sin, and would you teach us?” Also, Paul point outs out the problem of sin, “So then it is no longer I that do it but sin that dwells within me.” The problem is that we are born with sin in our flesh. And, the biggest problem is not “generational sin and curses” nor is it the problems of demons/evil spirits which cannot be ignored. To put it simply, every person because of sin who exposes themselves or are exposed to the occult is an open invitation to be possessed if they have not received salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the Signs following.
And, what makes me laugh is that Pat along with a larger number of people does not understand that the Devil/Satan has been given the authority to tempt/test all Believers and unbelievers in order to see if we are ready to serve our God. With a little study she would have discovered that the name Devil (diabolos in Greek) means “the prosecuting attorney for the state”, in other words, from the beginning of time, God gave him the responsibility and authority to tempt and test us in order to see if we are ready to go on with God’s plans for us in His Kingdom. The title “Satan” who is also the same person as the Devil mean the “Accuser” who accuses people when they sin which is his legal responsibility. Before Jesus could begin His earthly ministry, it was necessary for Him to be tempted/tested by the devil (Matt. 4: 1 – 11; Mk. 1: 12 – 13; Lk. 4: 1 – 13). Obviously, Jesus resisted the temptation and passed the test so he could begin His earthly ministry. And, if you will notice the temptations which Jesus passed, you will notice that many would be Apostles, Evangelists, Pastors, Prophets, Teachers, today including Pat Holliday herself, have failed when the Devil came by to test them.
Also, the role of demons is not to tempt people, but to attack, possess, harass, and like the devil to kill people. Al of the “so-called” Demonic Doorways” are not the result of people inviting demons/evil spirits to attack them. Whether Christians or non-Christians can be attacked by demons/evil spirits whether they are serving Jesus Christ as our Saviour, Lord and God. They are all a part of “spiritual warfare”.
Another source of temptation which is ignored is where most people, including Pat Holliday, always seem to miss. James tells us, “Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him. Let no one say when he is tempted, ‘I am tempted by God’; for God cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one; but each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth death” (Jas. 12 – 15). And we are not talking about demons/evil spirits or the devil. Sin is in the flesh. This is why Paul compared the present body which he called a “spiritual body”. In Greek, the present body that we have is called “psychikos” meaning that is driven by the human sinful spirit (psyche). The new resurrection body is called “pneumatikos” which means that it is driven by the Holy Spirit (pneuma) with no sin. Sin is in the body and it is causes us to be tempted to do sinful things. But, when we are tempted by our won flesh, most people want to blame the devil/Satan, or demons/evil spirits or worse God.
The other person that we give credit for His work is the Work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit’s job description, according to Jesus was and is, “And when He comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more; concerning judgement, because the ruler of this world is judged (Jn. 16: 8 – 11). When the Holy Spirit convicts people of their sin, they think that it is the devil or demons/evil spirits. They cannot tell the difference because they do not speak to or listen to the Holy Spirit everyday. And, so His attempt to prevent us from sinning is attributed to the enemies of our soul.
The reason why the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is critical for every person is that without the guidance of our God appointed Counsellor, we cannot understand the Scripture and we cannot tell the difference between the work of the Holy Spirit and the devil/satan and demons/evil spirits.
The Holy Spirit is supposed to be the administrator of the Church. It is He who distributes the 15 Gifts of the Holy Spirit ( 1 Cor. 12: 11)(Rom. 12: 6 – 8; 1 Cor. 12: 8 – 10). It is by using the Gifts of the Holy Spirit all of the problems which she attributes to ‘Demonic Doorway that do not exist” can be dealt with.
She is really messed up when she writes: In the next passage Paul tells us that we are temples for God to dwell. “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” 1 Corinthians 6: 19. This Scripture reveals a thre-part construction of each human being. The problem for Satan is that he cannot just come on in to the the inner soul of a person, by some action or inaction on the part of that person. Demons cannot just hop into people whenever they want. There is a spiritual wall placed there by God so that demons cannot get it unless we break down the wall of God’s protection.”
What Pat is saying demonstrates clearly that she does not know how people are made. When we receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, we are then as Paul points out we become complete people. This is the reason why he wrote, “My the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thess. 5: 23).
When we receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit we then have in our bodies “spirit” which means the Holy Spirit; and soul which means our human soul or human spirit; and human body. This means, as Jesus described, that before we receive salvation, we are like “old wineskins” and with salvation be become new wineskins. Then when we receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit which he compares to receiving the New Wine Who is the Holy Spirit. This means that when we receive the Holy Spirit, He fills the whole of our body. No demon/evil spirit can enter a person who has receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. In other words, no demon/evil spirit can enter our skin and go inside of us (Lk. 5: 37 – 39). However, the warning here is that if a person has not been transformed into a new wineskin through Salvation, the Holy Spirit will just go through that person and leave him/her. “if he does (put new wine into old , ‘the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed”. But, Jesus also points out a very dangerous warning: “And no one after drinking old wine desires new (Holy Spirit); for he says ‘The old is better.’
Pat needs to study the Scriptures more because any person who has received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is protected from possession although they can be harassed from the outside. I cast a demon away from a man who was attacked by a demon who tried to enter his body through his mouth for over 4 hours and it could not go inside him because he had been baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. When I arrived on the scene, I commanded the demon to leave and sent it to the abyss which is the temporary hell for demons (Lk. 8: 31).
She is absolutely wrong when she says that there are only two sources for supernatural power. The devil/satan was appointed to carry on his assigned work by God to tempt and test us whether he likes it or not (Job 1) where he reported in to God everyday about the sin that people did. Since he lost the War in Heaven, he can no longer go there. And that is the reason we are told “Now the salvation and the power of the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of the brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God” (Rev. 12: 10 – 11). The “accuser” in Greek means that he has the legal right to present charges against sinners before our God. He must continue that but he cannot go back and forth to Heaven before our God. But the Scripture continues, “And they have conquered him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.” What this means is that any Christian who has received Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit has authority over the devil/satan (Jas. 4: 7; 1 Pet. 5: 9). And, more than that, we have authority to cast out demons (Mk. 16: 17). So, our enemy is under our authority.
People like Pat Holiday make the mistake of thinking that the devil/Satan has the same or equal authority of God. He is a fallen angel. He is a disgraced angel. All we have to say to him, “The Lord rebuke you.” but with respect that “we do not presume to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him” (Jude 9). They give him equal authority to God. In fact, it is because of people like her, who do not know their Scripture, they talk more about the devil and demons than they do about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit. In his book, “Let Us Praise”, Judson Cornwall, describes what these people do is called worshipping the devil or worshipping demons because they give them more attention than they do to God. They fear the devil and demons more than they fear God. They give the devil the power of being “omnipresent” which means that he can be in more places at any one time. No! No! No!
Being an angel means that the devil/Satan can only be in one place at one time tempting one person at a time. Only our God is “Omnipresent” available to all people anytime they call on His name: Jesus in Greek and Yahweh in Hebrew. Omnipresent means ”present everywhere at the same time”. Example: the omnipresent God. The only power that the devil/satan has is what our God has given him. Another example of how the devil/satan is limited under God’s authority is that Paul calls him, “the prince of the power of the air” (Eph. 2: 2). In Greek, there are two words for “air” one is “aer” which describes the air from the surface of the earth to the highest mountain. The other word is “aither” which describes the air from the mountain tops out in space as far as there is. The devil cannot travel above the mountain tops. He does not own or posses any country on earth. That is owned by our God. When he tempted Jesus, we read, “Again the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them; and he said to him, “All these I will give to you, if you will fall down and worship me.” And Jesus said to him, “Begone Satan! for it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’” Then the devil left him, and behold , angels came and ministered to him (Matt. 4: 8 – 11). Jesus knew that all the kingdoms of the world and their glory belonged to him. He knew that He was the devil/Satan’s God and he, the devil had sinned again. When we don’t know who we are in Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit according to our Heavenly Father’s Plans, then we are doomed to worship demons/evil spirits and the devil by the way that we misunderstand who has “all authority in heaven and in earth” (Matt. 28:18).
All of Pat Holliday’s talk about the devil and demons and all the sins just demonstrates that she pays more attention on her misconceptions about their authority. Because with our authority and being completely focused on Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and our Heavenly Father, we don’t bring fear into people’s live but “love, power and a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1: 6 – 7).
I would suggest that Pat Holliday needs to take a holiday and go back to school and take about 4 or 5 years studying Greek and Hebrew so she can at least be accurate in her teaching and preaching. She sounds like a person who has never received the authentic Baptism of the Holy Spirit and this is the reason why she is giving the devil/satan and demons/evil spirits so much more attention and authority than they have according to the Bible. She needs to know the authority that we Christians have through Jesus Christ when we have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. She is in a class which includes many people who are as Jesus said to the Sadducees: “You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God. Her title, “THE NEED FOR DELIVERANCE MINISTRY” describes Pat Holliday herself.
Gordon Williams http://gordwilliams.com/
Jesus warned us specifically about choosing to follow and receive the Holy Spirit alone. Not any other spirit…old wine… So, we can choose to embrace old spirits…familiar spirits and deny the Holy Spirit like many do in the Third wave and need real deliverance!
I have known many Christians, even tongue speaking ones, who were and are demonized. The word demonized means under the influence of demons. Yes a blood sucker cannot possess the whole body but all he needs is part of the body to draw the blood out. So demons or familiar spirit enter in and affect part of the body including the spirit if infirmity whom Jesus delivered from a daughter of Abraham
Whenever anybody is 100 % possessed by a demon the demon kills him as the thief has come to kill and destroy
“ALTHOUGH REQUESTED TO DO SO, PAT HOLLIDAY REFUSED TO SHOW THAT GORDON WILLIAMS WAS WRONG IN HIS REMARKS ABOUT PAT HOLLIDAY AND HER TEACHINGS”
P.S. When the Scripture tells us about “familiar spirits”, they are not the spirits of the dead. When a person dies, he/she either goes to Paradise (temporary heaven) or Tartarus (temporary hell). There is no travelling back and forth for people who die. Familiar spirits are demons/evil spirits who pretend to be somebody that you have known or heard about. They most often make their appearance just after a person has died and want to visit the relatives or friends of that person pretending to be the dead person.
When the Scripture mentions “the spirit of infirmity…/spirit of some kind of sickness” that describes what effect or what kind of disease the demon/evil spirit has on the person. The interesting thing about this is that once the demon/evil spirit is cast out, the physical symptoms of the disease disappear and the person is healed.
Demons/evil spirits all have names. Perhaps the most well known one in the OT was “Baal”. When Jesus asked the man who was possessed and lived amongst the tombs, He asked, “What is your name?” He replied, “My name is Legion; for we are many” (Mk. 5: 9). And, by the way, that was the only time that Jesus asked a demon/demons to name themselves. The demons had to tell Jesus their truthful name because they recognized him as “Jesus, Son of the Most High God” (Mk. 5: 7). They will lie to anybody else and not give their real names so that when a Christian commands them by using the name they have given him/her, they do not have to leave. However, we don’t need to know their names, we just command any evil or unclean spirit/demon to leave in the Name of Jesus Christ and they have to leave. Only people who have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit have this authority (Mk. 16: 17).
And, by the way, familiar spirits have nothing to do with Generational Sin and Curses. However, I have come to believe that the demon/evil spirit will use something that God has stopped doing as an excuse to possess a person which is, of course a lie. As I have pointed out to many people, God revoked the penalty of Generational Sin and Curses in preparation for the New Testament Covenant (Jer. 31: 27 – 34; Ez. 18: 1 – 32). “The soul that sins shall surely die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself” (Ez. 18: 20). Generational Sin and Curses were abolished. When Jesus healed the man who was born blind, His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be made manifest in him” (Jn. 9: 2 – 3).
There is no such thing called “Generational Sin and Curses”. There are a lot of people who have never read the OT and the NT. It is what I call a “NON-MINISTRY” DEALING WITH SOMETHING THAT GOD REVOKED IN PREPARATION FOR THE NEW COVENANT”. As, I explained to a doctor who was talking about this very issue. When somebody wants to deal with something that has been done away with, abolished, it is comparable to the use of placebos in drug testing. One half of the people who are involved in testing are given a “placebo” which has no effect or an imagined effect of those who are given it. It is a deception to find out if the drug being tested is effective or not. This is what happens when people deal with a non-existing thing like “Generational Sin and Curses”. The are deceived into thinking that God passes on the sins of their fathers to “the third and fourth generation” (Ex. 20: 4). People who are exposed to this “non-ministry” usually feel good for a short period of time and then they revert back to their old selves. They need to understand what John wrote: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins from all unrighteousness” (1 Jn. 1: 9). God does NOT PASS ON THE SIN FROM ONE GENERATION TO ANOTHER ANYMORE. Each one of us is responsible for ONLY our own sin! There are a lot of unscriptural information that is passed on because it give people control over those who do not know the Scriptures. This is the reason why, I was led to write a booklet, entitled, “GENERATIONAL SIN AND CURSES GONE FOREVER”. Again, here are some issues that demonstrate what Jesus said to the Sadducees, “You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29)
