2] HEALING THROUGH DELIVERANCE
For these teachings, you should read the books of Apostle DrDaisyMLake: PRAYER – Men ought always to pray; The Blood of Jesus Revealed; The Wonderful Name of Jesus; Why I despise Witchcraft.
Acts: 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil.
Healing is one of the blessings of the atonement of Christ and the Church should avail herself of this ministry. This is also one of the Ministry gifts and all healing work should be done in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is of utmost importance. The healer is Jesus. Know who you are and stand upon the authority given by the Lord Jesus Christ:
1 Corinthians 12:1-11 : The word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, the discerning of spirits, the gift of tongues, the interpretation of tongues, gift of prophecy, the gift of miracles, gifts of healing and gift of faith [nine gifts of the spirit].
The Church should operate in the healing gifts and ministers should follow their preaching of the word with the ministry of healing.
St Matthew chapters 8 and 9 and Mark 5 give many examples of healing. Exercising of faith on both the part of the recipient of healing and the minister is most important since God cannot work outside of faith.
We teach that God’s church is a power house which the devil should respect. Sickness is of the devil and the church has power over the power of the devil:
Luke 10: 18, 19 And he said unto them, I beheld satan as lightening fall from heaven.
Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
DIFFERENT WAYS PEOPLE GOT HEALED
IN THE MINISTRY OF JESUS AND THE APOSTLES
By touching the sick
Matthew 8:3, 14-15 The Leper; Peter’s Mother-in-Law
By speaking the Word
Matthew 8:8 The Centurion
By exercising faith
Mark 5:34 The woman with the issue of blood
By the laying on of hands
Mark 16: 18 “ … lay hands on the sick….”
These are just examples. The church should search out all the healing scriptures and act upon them. The church has been given the commandment to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. [Matthew 10:8]
Both the church in the wilderness and the NewTestamentChurch have been commanded to heal the sick.
Exodus 15:26 “And he said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. God does not want anybody sick.
What command did Jesus give to his disciples when he called them unto him?
Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
Mark 16:17, 18 And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Christians can minister healing to themselves because we are the Lord’s children and healing is the children’s bread [Matthew 15:26] or request healing prayer. [James 5:14-15].
1] Talk to sickness and disease and tell them to go.
2] Pray for sick people and know they are healed.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with his stripes we are healed.
3] When the sickness [or disease] is too stubborn, you may need to fast and drive out some demons.
Mark 9:24 [read verses 17-29] When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee come out of him and enter no more into him.
2] HEALING THROUGH DELIVERANCE
This ministry cannot be taught by man, experiences can only be shared as a guide line. God teaches as the need arises and the Holy Spirit leads through the gifts of the Spirit.
The gifts majoring in this ministry are the Word of Knowledge, Word of Wisdom and Discerning of Spirits.

11] Acts 16:16-18 [the girl with the spirit of divination delivered by the apostle Paul]
12] Acts 8:5-20 [unclean spirits came out of many under Philip’s ministry and Simon the sorcerer discerned by the apostle Peter]
13] Revelation 12:1-11 [satan cast out of heaven and the church overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of her testimony]
14] Matthew 8:16 [Jesus cast out the spirits with his word]
15] Matthew 9:32-33 [when Jesus cast the devil out of the dumb man, the man spoke]
16] Revelation 20:10 [the end of satan and his co-workers]
PUTTING THE SCRIPTURES INTO PRACTICE
Deliver the people, it is the church’s duty. Cast out the demons.
1] Bring the person to Christ if at all possible. They need to be over in Christ’s kingdom.
2] Get him to confess and renounce all known sin.
3] Get him to renounce the devil and all his works and all his demons. He must command the devil and his demons to go, since he is through with him.
4] Ask Jesus to be his Lord and take over from satan. Ask Jesus to heal up any bruised area of his life as a result of being with satan.
5] Find out if his family line had anything to do with the occult, incest, any form of sexual immorality, etc.
6] Renounce and forgive fore-parents [maternal/paternal or both] of any generational wickednesses as at .
7] Bring to fore [ask questions about this] any areas of unforgiveness. These must be dealt with. Everyone must be forgiven. God cannot work where there is unforgiveness.
IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL THAT THE DELIVERANCE MINISTER KNOWS WHO HE IS IN CHRIST AND STANDS CONFIDENT AND DETERMINED AGAINST THE ENEMY. JESUS HAS ALREADY WON THE BATTLE, WE ARE ONLY TAKING THE VICTORY.
1] The needy/sick one must pray and ask God for help.
2] The minister must pray and ask God for help:
a] The minister must ask God for a manifestation of the spiritual gifts. b] The minister must ask God to allocate angels to help.
BIND THE STRONG MAN:
a] Jezebel [Isaiah 47:8-10; Revelation 2:20]
b] Anti-Christ [1 John 4:3]
c] Death and Hell [Revelation 20:14]
Bind any known spirits. Binding and everything else must be done in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ [Very important – or nothing will happen].
After binding in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, command every spirit to leave in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Be very confident. Remember the battle is not ours it is the Lord’s.
Listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit at all times and quote scriptures as the Lord leads.
Praises must be going up to the Lord Jesus at all times throughout the ministry. It is His work and He only gets all the glory and praise. Thank Him as you go along.
Have workers pleading the blood of Jesus at all times throughout the ministry. Satan is very much afraid of the blood of Jesus. The ministry may take time. Some unclean spirits are stubborn, but hold your ground, be firm and strong. God will do His work through you. Make sure there is no sin in your life as you move into this work for the Lord.
IMPORTANT: Never go it alone. Remember Jesus sent the disciples out two by two and He himself never walked alone; He took Peter, James and John with Him. We must follow Jesus’ example at all times. There may be the odd occasion when you have to act, but it will need to be a one-off thing and not the normal.
