Genesis 3:24 JNT He drove the man out, and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden the Kruvim (angel/guard) and a flaming sword which turned in every direction to guard the way to the tree of life. [Spiritual insight: After the Lord has rescued us from captivity and driven out all demonic entities, closed and locked all gates (in Jesus' name) a holy guard can be enlisted/placed at our gaps (back sides/vulnerabilities) to prevent the return of evil.]

Genesis 19:17 KJV    Escape for your life; look NOT behind. 
(Spiritual insight: Do NOT look at your past; look at your destiny in Messiah.)

Deuteronomy 28:28 NIV   The Lord will will afflict (strike) you with madness (insanity), blindness, and confusion of mind (fear/panic/astonishment of heart/bewilderment). 
(Accordingly, Lord, we repent for any personal or family sin,  including any sin triggering any mental illness. 
Lord, we cancel, break, and reverse all curses.  In the name of Jesus Christ, we loose all Your blessings. 
We ask You Holy Spirit to sweep clean all places where the enemy occupied & then to permanently fill up those spaces with Yourself.)

Psalm 123:1-2 - I lift up my eyes to You, Whose throne is in heaven.  As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to You Lord God, until You show us Your mercy.

New Testament

(good to CLAIM and to memorize)

Matthew 12:43-45 NIV - "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it.  Then it says, 'I will return to the house (person) I left.'  When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied (by Holy Spirit), swept clean and put in order.  Then it goes and takes with it 7 other spirits more wicked than itself; they go in and live there.  The final condition of that man is worse than the first." (Spiritual insight: With the Holy Spirit as tenant in our body we are safe.  With an evil spirit as tenant in our body, we are in danger.)  
Matthew 13:27-28 NIV - 27"The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, did not you sow good seed in your field? 
Where then did the weeds come from
?'  28He replied, 'An enemy did this.'"
(Spiritual insight: Jesus on the cross provided 3 things: salvation, healing, deliverance. Our invisible enemy Satan will do everything he can to interfere with our knowing about these and/or taking/receiving/ appropriating them for ourselves. 
Satan is the root cause of all problems.  Everything else in the flesh are only weeds/ symptoms/evidence that the enemy is on our turf.  Mental illness is just one more symptom/lie of Satan that we can recognize/refuse/reject.  We can declare just the opposite: IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I am (_____ is) healed.  In the name of Jesus, I do NOT have mental illness. 
In the name of Jesus, I reject and refuse mental illness.  In the name of Jesus, each minute, hour, day, month, year, I am more and more free from fear/shame/ lust/oppression/depression/loneliness/thought disorder/medication side effects/the need to be medicated/dependent on others.  In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind all that is not of God and loose all this is of God.  Father, I thank, praise and bless You Father, Holy Soirit and Your son, Jesus.)
Matthew 16:23 TPNT   He, turning about, said to Peter, "You must go behind Me, Satan!  You are tempting Me, because you (Satan speaking through Peter) are not thinking (speaking/agreeing with) the things (mind) of God but the things (thoughts/ideas/reasonings/lies) of men (human nature/demons/evil)."

Mark 9:25 TPNT - When Jesus saw that the crowd was running together,

29He said to them, "This kind is in no way able to come out except in prayer (& fasting)."

Luke 11:24-26 NIV - "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it.  Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.'  When it arrives it finds the house swept clean and put in order; then it goes and takes 7 other spirits more wicked than itself.  They go in and live there.  The final condition of that man is worse than the 1st."  (Spiritual insight: Deliverance is dangerous, if the person being delivered has not been equipped to defend himself or if there is no provision to mentor or disciple, house, feed, clothe, befriend, school and employ the delivered.)
1st Timothy 5:22 NIV - Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands (or of strangers laying hands on us).
Luke 22:31 - "Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat."

Luke 22:32 - "I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail (when you hit a bump in the road of life); and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren."  (spiritual insight: Trials/troubles/persecutions build spiritual muscle.)

John 5:5-6,8,14 NIV - "One who was there had been there 38 years.  When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, He asked him, "Do you want to get well?"...Then Jesus said to him, "Get up!  Pick up your mat and walk."  At once the man was cured.  He picked up his mat and walked...Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, "See, you are well again.  Stop sinning (sin no more) or some-thing worse may happen to you."

Shall He (God) not with Him (Jesus) also freely give us all things?

1st Corinthians 1:27-29  NIV - God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise.  God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.  He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things (and the things that are not) to nullify that things that are, so that no one may boast before Him. 
(Reminder: God created the world and all its contents from nothing.)

. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
2nd Corinthians 10:3-5
 - The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world.  On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish (demonic) strongholds (of disease, death, etc).  We demolish (demonic/false) arguments and every (demonic) pretension (delusion/lie) that sets itself up against (contradicts) the knowledge (Word) of God
(in Holy scripture), and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (Spiritual principle: Many thoughts are not from us, nor God, but from Satan.  Once we recognize this, we then can exercise our NO muscle to reject
such unhealthy and dangerous thoughts.)

For we wrestle not against flesh (man) and blood (disease), but against (spiritual) principalities, against (spiritual) powers, against (spiritual) rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take the whole armour of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  
Ephesians 14-19 NIV   Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying... (Spiritual insight: The helmet of salvation helps to protect our brain/thoughts/memories/ emotions.  The Greek word "sozo" has 3 translations: salvation, deliverance, healing.)

Hebrews 4:12 - The Word of God is living (alive) and powerful, sharper than any 2 edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit + joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the heart's thoughts and intents. (Spiritual insight = Read or sing scripture ALOUD.  It will come overcome any incorrect thought.)
Hebrews 4:15-16 NIV
    We  do not have a high priest Who is unable to sympathize with our  weaknesses.  We have One Who has been tempted in every way, just as we are, yet was without sin.  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Hebrews 10:22 NKJV

Hebrews 12:3 NIV - Consider Him (Jesus Christ) Who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

James 1:6-8 - But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord;
he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
James 1:-12-13 - Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.  Let NO may say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God, for God cannot be tempted with evil; neither tempts He any man. (Rather He allows satan to tempt.  More often, it is our own evil desires that lead us astray.)
James 1:14 (CJB) Rather, each person is being tempted whenever he is being dragged off and enticed by the bait of his own desire.
James 4:2 - You have not, because you ask not.
James 4:7 - Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to God and He will come near to you.  ( paraphrased: Resist disease and it will flee; also, Resist sin and it will flee)
James 5:14-16 - Is any one of you sick?  He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the Name of the Lord.  The prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. (4 Spiritual principles:
#1. the need for confession, 
#2. the role of church elders,
#3. the medicinal value of oil which represents the Holy Spirit
#4. the connection between disease and sin)

1st Peter 5:6-11 KJVer    Therefore, humble yourselves (allow yourself to be humbled) under the mighty hand of God,
that He may exalt you in due time.  Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.  Be sober.  Be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, stalks about, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist steadfast in the faith. 
Know that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren in the world.  After you have suffered a while, the God of all grace, Who has called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 
To Him be the glory and dominion for ever and ere.  Amen.

but put the spirits to a test to see if they belong to God.
1st John
4:3-4 - Every spirit that does NOT acknowledge Jesus is NOT from God. - This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.  You dear children are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than (Satan) the one who is in the world. (Asking God the Father, Jesus the son, and the Holy Spirit to take up residence in our hearts, provides the help and protection we need for the rest of our lives.)

Revelation 12:17 -
The dragon (Satan) was enraged at the woman (Mary mother of Jesus) and went off to make war against the rest of her (spiritual) offspring - those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus, (that He is the same yesterday/today/tomorrow). 
(Spiritual insight: We are not at war with disease and evil but with evil spirits who are out to destroy mind, body & soul..)
Revelation 21:7 KJVer    He who overcomes shall inherit all things. 
I will be his God and he shall be My son.


Father Robert DeGrandis in The Ten Commandments of Prayer recommends that we pray in tongues to allow the Holy Spirit to minister to the root cause (such as deep emotional problems) of physical ailments. Any one who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit can pray for himself or for another this way, using tongues (another language; sometimes called the language of angels; a 2nd known language, but unknown to the speaker)...
With emotions, we find that they are layered like the peel of an onion.  Each level brings tears.  Each level needs to be dealt with.  Eventually, there will be a root cause, which also will need to be dealt with.  Otherwise our emotions will be bi-polar, up and down, tossed like a salad.  Father DeGrandis in The Gift of Miracles contends that "if a root cause is not healed,
an illness can return."  On the way to recovery it is OK to work with counselors, pastors, therapists, psychiatrists, doctors, nutritionists, and orthomolecular modalities; just do not omit Doctor Jesus, for He is the key ingredient in the salad of life.  Many physical and mental healings are progressive, step by step, as we mature emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually...
Negative emotions (such as fear to run in front of a car, or anger such as Christ had one day at the local temple) are normal human, often healthy, reactions to life.  However, "excessive, ongoing " negative emotions are a curious thing.  They can be called bad feelings, heavy weights, or oppressions because they manifest themselves as not only mental anguish and fogging/shutting down of the mind, but also as physical pressure, forcing some to be bedridden.  They are from our enemy, Satan.  We do not need to think that our emotions are us. We have legal permission from Christ to reject them, because
He healed all our infirmities 2000 years ago.  Unless we, like a sponge, absorb His word day and night, we will not realize, experience in our lifetime, that He has already provided a sound mind for us, regardless of what the medical community says.  There is physical pain but also emotional pain.  One can have a broken leg or a broken heart.  We can have a broken relationship between us and a friend, relative, or God.  Not only will we be perhaps lonely, but also burdened down as though we have a hole in our heart, an emptiness, a longing, or perhaps an invisible hole full of puss of which we cannot rid our self.  Scripture says not to take communion until we have reconciled with a brother who has something against us.  However, we may be the injured party.  In that case we need to forgive and give our hatred or bitterness to God before we take communion, even if that anger is towards God.  Scripture says many are sick and die because they take communion without first forgiving.  Once our conscience is clean, then it is time to tell the accuser in our mind to get lost, as we have fulfilled the demands of God, as best we know how.  There are emotions resulting, not from what we do, not from what has been done to us, not from our circumstances, but from what we have inherited.  A good example of this is depression.  Often manic depression is inherited from one generation to the next.  If you see this is your family, you can realize right away that your "disease" is NOT your fault.  However, it is our fault, once we realize that it is inherited and we then do nothing about it.  Then at that point we are in agreement with the disease and are guilty, for not only are we keeping it, but possibly passing it on to the next generation, if we have or will have children.  Therefore, it is imperative to come against this illness IN THE NAME OF JESUS.  At such time we find the root cause of any illness or of any emotion that is creating havoc in our lives, then we need to root it out by prayer, fasting, communion, in addition to any medical, pastoral, family, or community supports necessary to keep us a content, safe, functioning and contributing member of society.

Joyce Meyer discusses Luke 5:4-5 KJV  He said to Simon, "Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch."  Simon answered, "Master, we have toiled all night and have taken nothing.  Nevertheless, at Your word I will let down the net."   When Jesus told the disciples at the end of a long night to go back out and fish again,
the disciples may have grumbled in their heart because they did not FEEL like obeying.  Joyce reminds us to keep on keeping on, to not quit.  Many champions do not win because of their own greatness, but because so many have dropped out or quit.  Jesus could have quit too.  Instead He said to His dad in heaven, "Not My will but Yours be done."  There is a saying, " When the going gets tough, the tough get going."  It is not even the going, but the NOT quitting, not committing suicide, not taking that one cigarette/dope/drink/ cookie - whatever is our temptation, our false comforter.

Joyce would mumble to Jesus that she wished that sometimes her whole family did not have to work for her. 
Jesus responded that He feels that way sometimes when His family works for Him.  Joyce wished that sometimes her kids would get along more.  Jesus responded that sometimes He wishes that too,  when His own kids do not get along. 
Joyce murmured to Jesus about what she was going to get out of this not quitting.  Jesus responded that she had Him. 
Jesus had her reflect on Hebrews 9 and to view the human body as a trinity.  The flesh as the outer court of the temple. 
The soul/mind/emotions/heart as the inner court.  The spirit as the most holy place.  Scripture reminds us that we are the temple of God.  We are to give less heed to the outer courts and more to the most holy place (denying the flesh/negative thoughts, getting out of bed when we feel like staying in bed, going to work when we feel ill, not saying mean things when we feel angry, saying NO when another is taking advantage, etc)...
Many women take on the family name of the man they marry.  That very day they are the same biologically, but not legally or spiritually.  Scripture says that the 2 become 1 flesh.  Legally the woman is recognized as partner and heir of her mate.  When God forgives our sins, He does NOT remember them, according to scripture.  He sees us as legally and spiritually without sin, even though in the flesh we are the same old, same old person.  However, our enemy Satin will take advantage of us, if we do not understand or fail to claim our legal and spiritual rights.  Satin will whisper, reminding us of all our past forgiven sins and shortcomings.  We not only have permission to defend ourselves, we have the mandate and authority to do so, lest we relapse, until such time that we finally recognize who we are in Christ.  Then the Holy Spirit living inside us will empower us to do what we ourselves could never do, begin to recognize and reject the enemy.  Remember, Satin lost the battle 2,000 years ago, but he will not tell us that.  Once we recognize that, we as in a football game, switch from the defensive to the offensive side.  Not only that, the game is over for Satin.  The ball is in our hands.  The victory is ours (mine and God's).

BEWARE Oh normal healthy superior relatives.  Those of us, who have NOT been labeled with a so called mental illness, are not "out of the woods", nor one step from a "pothole" or "pitfall".  The world is inhabited by demons, who are the enemy of God our entire lifetime.  Anything which will help the mentally ill stay in recovery, will also help us who are not yet "labeled".  The major activity of a spirit is flooding our minds with thoughts.  We daily, constantly, need to capture and filter every  thought. We identify each thought to see if it is ours, the enemy's or God's.  We  reject any though which does not agree with scripture.  We reject any enemy thought.  We send it back to its sender.  We refuse to concentrate on it any longer.  We change the subject.  Initially this can be a full time job.
2nd Corinthians 10:3-5    The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world.  On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish (demonic) strongholds (of disease, death, etc) .We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we "take captive every thought" to make it obedient to Christ.

Hammond, Frank & Ida Mae  Pigs in the Parlor book.  Do you believe in heaven/hell/demons/ God/Jesus?  God spoke to Ida Mae Hammond and told her that schizophrenia is caused by demons. Plural. 
If God is not a liar, then we have a lot of work to do.  Ida's husband Frank Hammond refused to minister to any schizophrenic who did not have a personal relationship with Jesus.  Is this a sin?  The reason for such a strong stand is 4 fold: 
1st, a person may become worse. 
2nd, the person cannot defend himself when the disease/demons try to return. 
3rd, the illness/demons may not leave (at least initially). 
4th, the (1 on 1 personal) ministry process can be long, often up to 1 year. 
Scripture (Luke 11:24-26) says that if the house/mind is empty, the departing demon will bring back 7 more. 
The mind/soul/body needs to have the Holy Spirit Who is able to prevent the reentrance of a demon. 
In addition, the demons living in the person have a legal right to stay as long as the Holy Spirit does not have title to the person.  Legal title is given to God when one asks God to forgive all his sins and asks Jesus Christ to be his savior. 
Then the demons become squatters and need to be evicted.  Now the demons have to obey when they are commanded to leave and not return.  God took title to our bodies when Christ crushed Satan under His feet on the cross 2000 years ago. 
When God becomes our father, we inherit all His assets.  However, we need to claim them, sometimes in battle. 
The deliverance ministry is part of that battle needed to set captives free.  
Schizophrenia is one of the most difficult psychiatric illnesses, but there is a cure and there is a doctor. 
The doctor's name is Jesus Christ.  The cure BEGINS with 3 progressive steps:
1-Receive Jesus as savior. 
2-Receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. 
3-Do spiritual warfare before/during/after deliverance.  
That means to renounce delusions, and to fall out of agreement with the lies of the demons.  This needs to be done out loud and often as the enemy assaults the mind with wrong thoughts/tapes that run in the head, that are out of agreement with scripture.  For instance, rejection is a major lie, so any perceived rejection must be rejected. 
This is a war where we are in the Lord's army, needing ongoing training and maturity!

Hammond notes that we need to speak out the name OR the designation/doing of each demon, before it will leave, because: 
1-The demon will not likely leave, otherwise. 
2-The delivered person will be able to recognize which demons to reject/prevent from returning.
3-There may be variations of the same problem. 
For instance, there is a demon of rejection and a demon of fear of rejection. 
Regarding designation, we can say, "I bind/command you spirit of rejection,"
or we can say, "I bind/command you demon that is causing _____ to feel rejection." 
Always bind or command "in the name of Jesus"...
One of the major tricks of the enemy is to barrage us with thoughts which are tied into emotions, especially negative emotions, and in particular emotions which "attack" self.  Notice the word attack.  Right away we notice that an attack is not a thing, but a live entity, whether a person or an evil spirit.  For example, we can experience fear/panic/terror as an emotional weight or adrenalin rush.  When we are not "overcome" by a flood of emotions, often associated with past flashbacks, rather than right now, then from time to time, we can stop, look at, and filter out unwanted harmful thoughts and ideas that do not contribute to our present well being...
Fighting our/my/your demons can be a figure of speech, for we all struggle with temptations, the flesh, disease, and aging. 
Addictions are particularly bothersome.  Addictions to bad habits, food, chocolate, coffee, medications, illegal drugs, alcohol, porn (soft or hard), sex, etc is a battle/war.  In our mind and in our body there is a constant preoccupation and struggle to not do/think something.  To humans, these demons are real, whether in our mind or in our body.  To make matters worse, these demons can be evil spirits.  If and when they are, we need to call on Jesus Christ to send His warrior angles to come down and assist us.  Satan wants us to fight in our own strength.  God smiles when we quit and ask Him for help. 
Jacob wrestled with an angel of the Lord an entire night, but would not let His angel go until God blessed him.  Many of us struggle, especially at night when our defenses are down due to medication and sleep.  The enemy has the upper hand terrorizing us at night when we are in bed asleep.  Therefore, read aloud the 91st Psalm before you go to sleep.  If you awaken, yell aloud, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.  Those words will terrorize your enemy.  The tide will change and you will begin to win your war. 
Genesis 32:24,26 NIV    24Jacob was left alone, and a man (holy angel/God/Messiah/Jesus) wrestled with him till daybreak... 26Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak."  But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me"...
It is OK to be the slow one, the one who makes mistakes, the turtle.  It is the turtle who won the race, instead of the rabbit, when the rabbit stopped to take a nap.  Hooray.  We will always win, as long as we never quit and never abandon God; for it is He Who provides the needed hug/kiss/stamina/hope/chance/ job/miracle -whatever it takes to get us over the finish line into victory.  It is OK to be nothing, as long as we rely on Something - Jesus.  It is He and not me, Who will provide.  What-ever we do, do for God.  Brush our teeth for God.  Shower for God.  Do our laundry for God.  Shovel snow for God.  He will inhabit our life with blessings.  He will inhabit the snow, the rain, the sunshine, and our smiles.  He will even inhabit our wallets.  If we have no job, put that money we find on the street in the church/temple offering plate and see what God will return to us.  God loves gratitude, but also expectation.  Test Him...
When others want to solicit your attention/income/addictions/time, one method is to sneak "cookies/ bait/spam/junk/virus infection/contamination" onto your e-mail site into the receive portion of incoming correspondence/pictures/mail.  We can notice that the "enemy" has done this.  If we are tempted/curious/uncertain, we can allow such messages/pictures to be downloaded onto our computer screen. We can choose to prohibit these messages/pictures/dangers from being downloaded, by instructing our software to reject future mail from that sender, by deleting before opening, or by deleting after we open the mail.  Regardless, we have the option to refuse and reject messages from the enemy.  Our spiritual enemy, Satan, will download thoughts of projection (fear of the future) or of rejection (replaying old thoughts/records of wrong done to or by us).  Boat-clubs will fly flags daily.  Each flag color designates current weather conditions.  To us, the past is forgiven, under the red blood of Jesus Christ.   If we or the enemy runs old films of the past, then that is a red flag warning, like that of the red flag in a bull pen.  IMMEDIATELY, we must erase/refuse/reject all past thoughts, lest the enemy charge like a bull into our present and gore/wound us.  Each time we replay old thoughts/memories/hurts we ignore/forget that Christ has already taken care of those issues.  Instead we are to thank/trust/praise Him.  Then we are to change our mind/thinking/ thoughts.  Unless there is new sin to confess immediately, we are to focus on Jesus Christ Who lives in us to do what only He not we can do.  We are to go immediately and bless someone else.  We do not need money to bless.  God has given us a smile, hands, and feet.  Remember, He wants to bless others using you.  God impressed upon Joyce Meyer to replace rejected thoughts with His thoughtsReplace the evil spirit with the Holy Spirit.  Daily feed your human spirit with Scripture.  Leave NO vacancy in your mind!  NEVER "meditate" in order to "empty your mind", making it available to the enemy. 
2nd, if we (through baptism) are dead and buried with Christ, then we can say to wrong/ harmful/stinking thinking, "NO."  For instance, if in the morning when it is time to go to work, your body says , "I do not want to get out of bed," you can reply, "Flesh you are dead; get up, in the name of Jesus!"  If your eyes lust over a woman, you can reject those thoughts with, "No; I am dead; my eyes are dead; eyes, behold Your beauty (of creation/God)."
Father God, in the name of Your Son Jesus, we place an angel at the gate of our mind to filter out (capture and evict) all thoughts/voices/ pictures that contradict Your Word/heart/nature/intentions.  We ask Your Holy Spirit to give us the spiritual muscle to cooperate with Him to obey Your voice/wishes, that we might be a blessing to You and to others, that we might bring glory to Your name, that You might be pleased with us, and that we might fulfill our destinies for which You created us.  Thank You. Amen...
One of the reasons the enemy Satan and/or his accomplices get a foothold (ore even a toehold) in our lives is because they want/need to  manifest/dwell/live in the flesh.  In order to do that, they need to get inside (like a parasite) or at least oppress outside (like a bloodsucker).   They insist on invading our air space, if at all possible.  We can object/refuse such maneuvers, but only if we know/recognize that resistance is our spiritual right/privilege/responsibility/opportunity/ necessity/obligation.  As a dad or boss, we have authority (power of attorney) over our entire family and our real estate.
We need to defend both ourselves and those whom we spiritually cover.  It may be that we also need to go on the offensive, the same way one would win a football game.  With disease, death and disaster, demons want to invade/infest/infect our flesh, our real estate, even our toys, and especially our children and mates.  The flesh is where demons gain much strength.  The flesh is what is easily intimidated and readily overcome, unless one enlist the power of the Holy Spirit and His angels.  When the enemy declares war, then resist.  Stop saying, "Yes," by ignoring demonic attacks/invasion.  Say, "No, in the name of Jesus."  Say, "Release me (or release them), in the name of Jesus."  "Roar" this for at least 40 days. 


Allen, AA - God's Guarantee to Heal You - - Chapter 12 Keeping Your Healing - " up no ground except that which is actively taken from him by faith.  Having given up ground, he is constantly on the watch for an opportunity to take it back again. (Sounds like the fight over Jerusalem!)...When you have been released from the power of Satan, whether...sickness, demon oppression, or demon possession, it is important that the house...your body - be not only clean, but occupied.  When Satan moves out, the (Holy) Spirit of God MUST move in.  NEVER let the devil find your house empts.  If you have not yet been filled with the Holy Ghost, seek to be filled IMMEDIATELY and then stay filled...Then Satan cannot return."  "Satan knows that faith is his enemy and constantly strives to destroy it.  Whenever you feel any pain which remotely resembles the pain of your previous disease, Satan will immediately suggest to your mind that you were never healed, were not completely healed, or that your healing didn't last...Answer Satan as did our Lord when He was tempted, "It is written (Matthew 4:4,7,10).  By whose stripes ye were healed (1st Peter 2:24)...Stand  upon a promise in God's Word and praise God in the devil's face.  This is resisting the devil."  "It is (usually) a (serious spiritual) mistake to go back into a church where the pastor and teachers do not believe in the miracle-working power of God."  However, we ALL need frequent Christian fellowship.  If you cannot find a church or friend to encourage you spiritually, ask God in prayer to provide what you need.  Be faithful to read your Bible daily, to talk and sing with God daily, and to NOT isolate oneself, but to rather bless at least one other individual each day.  "Your testimony is important.  Not only will it bless and encourage others to trust God for their deliverance, but it will help you to overcome the devil.  We overcome him [the devil] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11)."
Allen, AA - Demon Possession Today ad How to Be Free - -
Chapter 3 The Origin and Nature of Demons - "This is one (major) mistake the man (delivered of a demon) made.  He failed to be 'filled' before the demon made his 2nd attempt.  If the man had been filled with (baptized in) the Holy Ghost, the demon could never have entered in again."  Many born-again Christians fail to take this 2nd step in their spiritual lives.  That is one reason so many Christians behave like Gentiles! Additionally, the delivered man needs to be taught how to protect himself from demonic vexation and reentry plus how to grow spiritually.  Remember, being oppressed or attacked by demons, is not being possessed by demons!"
Chapter 10 Insurance Against Demon Possession.  "The demon...will not or cannot re-enter one which is FULL of the Holy Spirit." One needs to get into daily fellowship (communion/alignment) with the Holy Spirit, to be continuously filled to overflowing. 

Davis, Alfred C.W. with Talbott-Schoenhoff, Diane - FREE TO BE ME, Experience the Freedom of Uncovering Your True Self in Christ - "We need to make a conscious commitment daily to put on our new life in Christ, our new role. To head in that new direction, we need to adopt the new way of thinking that only the Holy Spirit gives. 
VIRUS PROTECTION PROGRAM - Think of the process from a modern-day perspective. Most households today are equipped with one or more personal computers. It is common practice to install an anti-virus program for your new computer. These filters regularly scan the hard drive for menacing viruses. Without such programs, computers run the risk of crashing. And so it is with believers, we need to be equipped with an anti-distortion program that rids our mind of negative unhealthy thinking that...
causes us to stumble...
The Truth of Jesus, if applied daily to Christian living, is just the anti-distortion protection that we need.  Perhaps you’re skeptical about all this. After all, installing an anti-distortion program for the Christian mind? Maybe you believe that inner healing for distortions and hurt may work for others but not for you. No doubt your situation is unique. Or you think there is nothing in your life that needs changing. After all, your perceptions are just fine. But what if change for the better is possible?  Perhaps there are aspects of your life where a change of thinking and perception could help. Maybe your current thinking has obscured who you really are and is preventing you from knowing your True Self in Christ (meaning His perspective of & love for us).
WHAT’S THE POINT? - In his book, Self Matters, Dr. Phil McGraw challenges the reader to get real. He urges them to get rid of doubt and distortion and to live an authentic life,  “Wouldn’t it be tragic if a very different, vibrant you was buried under a pile of worldly to-do lists, and you were mindlessly accepting the world’s expectancies?  There is an authentic self within you.”
32  Similarly, although from a distinctly Christian perspective, we’ve writtenthis book to challenge your thinking and cause you to question whether you are truly living the victorious Christian life Jesus came to offer. You’ll be asked to take an honest look at yourself and see whether your thoughts, perceptions and feelings line up with biblical teaching.  As you read on you’ll witness for." 

Almonte, Tommy - The God That I Know - A Journey to Intimacy - - Chapter 5 delves into Almonte's encounters with Jesus in heaven and hell.  He instructs us to use faith and scripture to repel the attacks of demons, which are like blood suckers that cause heaviness, depression, anxiety, confusion,  worry, and difficulty speaking, unless we go on the offensive and defend ourselves.  Before we can defend ourselves, we first have to repent of any sin and ask Jesus to be our savior.

Anderson, Neil T - Overcomers Covenant in Christ - 
Bookmark cites some thoughts which are well to speak aloud (in the name of Jesus) at least once daily. 
In the name of Jesus, "I resist the devil."
In the name of Jesus, "There is no more guilt or condemnation."
In the name of Jesus, "I renounce every unrighteous use of my body."
In the name of Jesus, "I choose to believe the Truth and walk in it, regardless of my feelings or circumstances."
In the name of Jesus, "I commit myself to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." 

Basham, Don - Deliver Us From Evil - - Basham, now deceased, autobiography is excellent. 
Chapter 13 Keeping Our Deliverance is  important reading for anyone having had deliverance.  It is imperative that we (1) receive Christ as our savior and stand on Scripture when the enemy tries to come back, (2) praise God continually, (3) protect and guard our thought life, (4) cultivate healthy relationships, (5) discipline ourselves.

Baxter, Mary K with Lowery, Dr T L - A Divine Revelation of the Spirit Realm - 
Chapter 3 Star Wars - The Fight in the Heavens reminds us that wrong thoughts, ideas, compulsions, addictions are all tricks/deceptions of Satan to lure one into insanity/sin/mindless obedience to him.
Chapter 4 Lucifer, the Liar reminds us that demons do/can in fact inhabit us through sickness/insanity/ leprosy/blindness/deafness according to healings/deliverances shown in New Testament scripture.  Be reminded/warned that when you have thoughts of suicide, that those thoughts are from a "spirit of suicide" and not your own thoughts! There is a spiritual underworld! For beginners, commit yourself to Jesus Christ, NOW, immediately, not tomorrow.
Chapter 5 Seven Realms of Spiritual War warns us to recognize the devil, resist the devil, talk back to the devil with the word of God, and fast.

Benefield, John - Binding the Strongman over America - "There are no Christian failures - only Christians who give up."

Bennett, George - When the Mental Patient Comes Home - Westminster Press  a Christian Care book 1980
Chapters include: Nobody is helpless nor hopeless.  Do half of the work.  Guilt.  Relating.  Focusing.  Tolerating silence.  Over-activity.  Forget.  Remember.  Discerning.  Secrets.  Mistakes.  Relapse.  Suicide and homicide.  Love life. 
Today "many who once were 'warehoused' as 'incurable' and 'hopeless' and were considered to have 'lost their minds' now live, work, love, and enjoy life outside the hospital...There may be times when every one of us needs to be totally cared for - briefly...We do recover the potential to help ourselves and the capacity to hope again.  How quickly and how completely we make this recovery depends largely on the attitudes (and expectations) of others as they relate to us...To regard recovering mental patients as helpless and hopeless is to contribute to their disability."  "Do no more than50% of the work...It avoids...robbing the convalescent of a sense of self-worth...or of pushing too severely."  Excellent ideas on how to work with your family member.  (Author neglects to mention that psychiatric medications often contribute to severity of inability/reluctance to work/groom/bathe/brush teeth/function.) 
Chapter 12 When You Have Made a Mistake - Sometimes "when family members (or doctors/staff) have done or said something that seems to have caused the (mental) patient to regress, they may become upset...over-react...dismiss the incident...actually deny that it ever happened...go into spasm of remorse and agonize...Realize that mistakes with...patients are no different from any other mistakes.  Most mistakes can be (recognized, admitted, repented for,) corrected... amended...Always take the recovering patient seriously" and learn from your mistakes.
Chapter 13 Facing the Threat of Relapse- "A relapse usually takes the form of a return of the symptoms, that initially caused the patient's admission to a a psychiatric facility.  These may include the total immobility of the patient, staying in bed, neither noticing nor responding to others...sleep or seem to sleep, or just sit or lie vacantly explosion of activity with possible combative attempts to hurt others, destroy property...extreme acting out of highly suspicious attitudes...barricade themselves in rooms or houses, threatening violence...
The more common relapse, however, is that of patients who begin to talk and behave in inappropriate ways, not just at certain times, but all the time...not respond to the presence of others...jabber nonsense 'word salads'...posture and gesture oddly, whether anyone is near them or not...seem relatively 'normal' until spoken to...
Know whether the patient has stopped taking medication, has been drinking for taking other drugs...
Ensure that patients not harm themselves or others...Return to acute illness does NOT mean that patient will remain that way forever...such recurrences are almost always the same way one considers the instance of a reformed alcoholic; falling off the wagon' once in a while...NOT...that... patients have 'lost' their minds eternally.  Medication may need to be readjusted."  (However, remember that the best medicine is reading the Bible OUT LOUD daily and playing hymns continuously to create an atmosphere uninhabitable to evil.  Father God, in Jesus' name, we repent for all family and personal sins.  Jesus, we ask You to be our Lord, Savior, Baptizer in water and Baptizer in the Holy Spirit.  Thank You. 
I now renounce and reject Satan and his designs.  I now claim and accept the designs of Jesus Christ for my life from the foundation of the earth. In Jesus' name I pray.  Amen.)  The patient needs to know that he/she will NOT be abandoned, but allow him/her transition into the community away from parents, in order to "cut apron strings" and to blossom, especially with a structured routine, near: a religious community/church/synagogue, transportation, family, affordable housing, safe friends, grocery store, medical care, library, and work.
Chapter 14 Preventing Suicide and Homicide - When threats of suicide or murder are vocalized, take seriously. 
"Do NOT leave deeply depressed persons alone.  Few persons take their own lives when in the company of others."  Accompany him/her for a walk/drive.  "You need not engage in conversation." 
If patient is living away, enlist him/her to phone at a certain times, etc. (or other innovative rendezvous).
Chapter 16 Love Life and Let Life - Do NOT try to CONTROL or OVERPROTECT (insulate from harm - except with prayer) your relative; he/she is attempting to do that him/her-self and thus "interfere with their complete recovery."  Gradually relinquish your charge into the arms of Dr. Jesus and Father God, having mentored him/her how to rely on the Trinity for him/her-self.  Yes, you can have an arm's length ongoing relationship, but as a prayer partner rather than as a dictator or parent or boss.

Bentley, Todd - The Reality of the Supernatural World - Exploring Heavenly Realms and Prophetic Experiences - -
Chapter 1 The Reality of the Supernatural "It would be much more effective to see (with our spiritual eyes) into that (heavenly/invisible) supernatural realm and pray specifically, rather than grope blindly and say, 'Whoever you are and whatever your name is, if you are out there [and I think you are even though I can't see you (with my human eyes)], I am going to resist you'", demon.  "We are only taking shots in the dark if we are not able to discern (by the Holy Spirit) or see (actually/discern) what spirit (s) we are warring against (See Ephesians 6:12)."
Chapter 6 Third Heaven shares 6 reasons some become dull of spiritual hearing according to scripture.
Hebrews 5:11  NJKV You have become dull of hearing.   
Matthew 13:15 NJKV - "The hearts of this people have grown dull.  Their ears are hard of hearing and their eyes have closed; lest they should see with their (spiritual) eyes and hear with their (spiritual) ears; lest  they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them."
Mark 8:17-18 NKJV - "Jesus...said to them, " you not yet perceive nor understand?  Is your heart still hardened? 
18Having eyes, do you not see:  Having ears, do you not hear?  Do you not remember?"
Psalm 78:9-11  The children of Ephraim...turned back in the day of battle...forgot His works and His wonders that He had shown them.
1  Forget/neglect to recount/be thankful for/testify about/rehearse/recite/broadcast/rehash God's past/present faithfulness
2  Failure to understand that not to exercise/use one's spiritual muscles/senses is to not avail oneself of/lose/atrophy them
Hebrews 5:14  NJKV
    Solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Failure to act on whatever word, unction, vision, prophecy, dream that the Lord has imparted is rebellion/disobedience.
3  Allowing oneself to be captured/seduced by sin
4  Failure to daily read scripture (and failure to visualize/meditate on heavenly scriptural encounters with God)
5  Failure to daily pray/talk with God
6  Allowing pressures of life to overwhelm/distract one from taking time to fellowship with God and other Christians who
are operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, who are having visions/dreams/revelations and/or who are producing good fruit.

Bevington, Guy C - Remarkable Miracles
Chapter 6 Personal Dealings of and from God states that God told Bevington, "You need not deny the (medical) symptoms, but you can deny their right to your body."  Bevington continues, "Yes, the symptoms are there, but according to the Word [of God (scripture)], they don't belong to me.  This toothache does not belong to me.  I will not have it.  I belong to Jesus.  This body, this head and every tooth in it belong to God.  It is His property for He says in His Word, 'Ye are not your own, for ye are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.'"  "Where there is no opposition (from Satan) there is no advance made."  "One of the main causes for not allowing Jesus to heal us in the lack of entire sanctification (baptism in the Holy Spirit).  Brethren, regeneration (salvation) is a most blessed and glorious work, but it does not complete God's ideal for a child of His.  If you fail to go on into the second work (sanctification/baptism in the Holy Spirit), you will never stand."
Chapter 7 A Case of Modern-Day Demon Possession "The power leading me could NOT be resisted, at least NOT without Jesus" as savior and Lord.  Possession can affect a nonbeliever in Jesus; oppression can affect anyone, Christian or not. 
The Holy Spirit in us is stronger that Satan or his demons.
In Chapter 8 Instances of Healing - Bevington shares, "I have been reminded of several cases of healing where the people failed to testify to their healing and God allowed the disease to come back."

Brimm, Billye (Grace Ryerson Roos content) Chapter 15 Holding the Blood - "Assert God's unfailing Word: 'The Blood of Jesus overcomes the devil and all he has done.' When you see anything in you that produces the transgression, remember that His Blood will take that away...No matter in what way the enemy comes, whether in discouragement, temptation, sickness, or any other way, he is overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of your testimony (of what victory Jesus' blood has accomplished on the cross for you, before the foundation of the earth)3...
Temptation is tailor-made. Demons don't usually tempt people to drink alcohol who never had a drinking problem. But they do tempt delivered former alcoholics.  The Bible indicates demons come back to the houses they left. Periodically demons return to see if they can get back inside. Such temptations are not sins. They can be easily overcome with the Blood of the Lamb and the word of one's testimony.  One can say, for instance, 'Satan, that's you trying to get me to smoke one reefer. In the Name of Jesus I resist you with the Blood of the Lamb. You have to go. It is written, Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.'  In every confrontation, you can overcome the enemy (if you do not quit)."
Chapter 16 Rewards for Overcoming -
"There is rank in resurrection. The Bible speaks of 'better resurrections.' (Hebrews 11:35.) Some will have more glory, if you will.  (1 Corinthians 15.) Some will rule over more than others. This is all determined, it seems, by faithful service during our earth lives.  We are saved by grace through faith, and not of works. (Ephesians 2:8,9.) But after we are born again we are to do the good works God ordained us to walk in here on earth. (Ephesians 2:10.)  At the judgment seat of Christ we will receive reward for the good things done while we (our spirits) lived in our bodies.  (1 Corinthians 3:12-16; 2 Corinthians 5:10.)  At some point job assignments will be given for the ages to come...Overcoming the enemy is a God-ordained good work. It brings peace and provision to life on earth. Far beyond that, however, our victories over Satan bring glory to God and obtain for us the eternal reward of the over-comer.  This earth life is a precious time. It is too valuable to waste. Somehow being here in this place of trial offers us the mysterious opportunity to be a recognized over-comer throughout eternity...
God commands us to be over-comers. The 1st place we must overcome him is in our domains. We don't have authority over our neighbors. But we have authority at home"

Brooks, Steven - Working with Angels - Flowing with God in the Supernatura - - Chapter 11 Divinely Granted Visions and Dreams  Section All Bark and No Bite refers to Satan's attempts to bluff us.  He is already defeated, but does not want us to recognize that fact.  Respond to the negative circumstance, "You have NO authority over me," in Jesus name.  Ignore it and it will ignore you, in Jesus name.

Tom Brown - Devil, Demons, and Spiritual Warfare - - El Paso, Texas, USA - -
2_corinthians/4-4.htm scripture:
3Even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
4in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that
they might not see
the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

5For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord [Relapse prevention book]

Chapter 10 How to Deal with Fallen Angels  "We can shout at the forces of evil in heavenly places all day long...
Command them to come down...rebuke them and tell them to leave our cities, but (often) it is our simple (and immediate) acts of obedience that will really inflict damage on the forces of Satan."
Chapter 11 The Battleground of the Mind  "You thought things would change once you were saved, yet your life remains a losing struggle.  Even though you know in your mind (spirit/heart) that you are a new creation, in your heart you feel like the same old person...You heard about spiritual deliverance...It worked! At 1st...The answer is quite simple: your mind is the battleground and target of Satan's assaults...
You never learned HOW to fight this battle (nor seldom practiced developing your own spiritual muscles.  We can practice saying NO to junk food, lust AND demons)...
Do NOT think...that because the devil failed to keep you from being saved, that he will relinquish (discontinue) the fight for your mind.  Satan works on the minds of saints just as he does with sinners... Our spiritual combat zone is (to a large degree) in the mind, where we must take every (evil/harmful/ detrimental/unholy) thought (idea/feeling/ emotion) captive. (Approx.49% mind/soul & 51% spirit warfare)   Many will...say...'He put a spell on me and this is my problem.'  Wrong!  Your mind which feared the curse, is (can be part of/contribute to) the problem - not (necessarily) the curse itself.  Some...think their problems exist because not all of their demons were cast out of them...
In truth, such believers (may) have never been established (well rooted) in the knowledge of their own spiritual authority.  They (may) have never (or seldom) acted (independently) as children of God (citizens of heaven), but rather as babes (toddlers) in Christ, looking for others (to change their diapers/to babysit them) to win the victory that Christ has already won."
Chapter 13 Why Godly People Fall  "Eve...was deceived...There was nothing flawed about her personality or character.  She was closer to God than we are...If it could happen to her, in her state of innocence and devotion, it could happen to anyone.  Scores of believers have fallen pray to Satan...One mistake could cost you your (spiritual) life."  Brown warns us to "watch" ourselves; that is for most of us to be accountable to another individual, especially a rabbi or pastor.  Satan works his best on those who are isolated.  "Satan can supernaturally barrage your mind with the most hideous of thoughts.  When this happens, it can make even the most stable Christian question his sanity.  Such thoughts do NOT originate in the heart of the believer...NOT all the thoughts in your mind are really your thoughts.  Some are actually coming form the voice of Satan...
Many believers condemn themselves for thinking sinful thoughts.  They assume that (all) the (sinister) ideas originated within their own hearts."  "Satan tries to keep you away from the people who can help...Satan wants you alone.  It is at this stage that he can really control...Satan convinces his prey not to tell...Satan fears confession, because it releases the soul from his grip...As long as you keep your deeds (and torments) secret, they will continue to eat you...You will always be telling God how sorry you are...You know in your heart (spirit) what you should do, but your mind is telling you something different.  You feel as if a spell is over you...Go to someone you trust and confess everything; leave nothing out.  Ask for prayer and watch what God does."
Chapter 14 Delusional Thoughts  2nd Timothy 1:7 KJV God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  "A sound mind is your right.  Do NOT settle for anything other than a healthy and whole mind."  NEVER be "more convinced of Satan's threats than of God's promises" in scripture... Separate our (negative) emotions from our intellect.  Almost all mental problems - from insanity to mild forms of compulsive behavior - are a result of accepting as true something that is imaginary."  Brown says there are 4 common delusional thoughts: (based on Satan's deceptions/lies to our minds.  NOTICE the word "I".)
1.I have committed the unpardonable sin (or blasphemed the Holy Spirit). 
2.I have demons who will not leave. 
3.I have no hope to continue living. 
4.I cannot forgive.  (We have not only bought into Satan's thoughts but have also attributed Satin's thoughts as being our own and often to our detriment have acted on them! #2 could be true.  However, there is always a fixable reason, a legal grounds, why demons are temporarily there as squatters/trespassers/illegal aliens.  Regarding
#1, Brown contends that one's confession of having sex with demons is a delusion. 
NOT necessarily. Genesis 6:1-22 expressly discusses this issue.  
Incubus and Succubus Demons - Real Invisible Sexual Attacks! there needs to be highlighted other Satanic lies which we can buy into.  If we have asked Jesus to be our savior and baptizer in the Holy Spirit, apologized to Him for any personal and family unforgiven/known/current sin, and are attempting to the best of our ability to not offend Him, then any condemnation from Satan is a big fat lie. Such lies also include that we have lost our salvation, that we did not really receive our salvation or baptism in the Holy Spirit in the first place, and that we are spiritual lepers outside the grace and help of the Trinity.  Such horror could be 'almost' a fatal wound to the heart, resulting in a broken heart, and loss of heart/hope.  However, notice the word "almost'.  Jesus is our MD and savior in all things.  Praise God.)
Chapter 15  How to Get Your Mind Back 
#1 Recognize that nothing is greater than God. 
#2 Uncover each lie you have believed and search Scripture to prove it wrong. 
#3 Speak the Work of God to the stronghold, because God releases His power through your lips.  (Some problem areas or strongholds are sexual lusts, guilt, demons, suicidal thoughts, and unforgiveness; all these areas can be reduced and/or eliminated when pertinent/relevant scripture is continually quoted out loud.)
(If God does not heal/deliver us instantaneously, we will need to cooperate DAILY with the Holy Spirit and mature emotionally, physically, and spiritually for the rest of our lives.  Once we are medically discharged, we will need to pay attention to avoid a relapse.  Plug self into a convenient and healthy church.)

, Antoinette - One Day He Beckoned - publisher - Chapter 4 The Jesus Who Understood Human Pain shares a reaction to the death of her 2 sons, "In my pain I told myself, 'I can't get up,' emphasis on can't...I knew that if I didn't get up that morning, I'd be stuck in my pain...Jesus wanted me to grasp that He was One with me in my pain, that His heart was as mutilated as mine.  He wanted me to feel His compassion, and let me know that He understood all the emotions I was going through.  He wanted to assure me that He would never leave me orphaned...I trusted He would restore me to wholeness if I trusted Him.  I...chose that morning to live."

Bubeck, Mark I - The Adversary - The Christian Versus Demon Activity - Moody Press  
Chapter 5 Facing Satan's Kingdom - "The (invisible/seldom revealing himself) the tempter...delights to inject into our minds wicked thoughts and desires.  Then as the accuser, he loves to taunt us about what a terrible person we are to ever have such wicked and sinful thoughts as those.  We must expect that Satan will use the most devious, sneaky, and subtle strategy against us."   
Chapter 6 Understand and Don't Be Afraid   
Satan "likes nothing better than to project in to the mind of a believer vile, evil thoughts and desires, and then to taunt his accusations, 'What kind of a Christian are you to have such wicked thoughts as those?'"  Satan like lions "can actually paralyze some prey he stalks, causing the victim to be an early target for destruction... Believers...are the target for Satan's devouring.  If he can create fear in us, we are much easier prey for him to destroy.  Christians greatly err when they avoid the subject of spiritual warfare...The victory of Christ over Satan is total and complete.  The person who appropriates and applies by faith the victory" wins.  Ignorance of the enemy + his defeat and/or ignorance of Jesus' supremacy + victory often results in one becoming a prisoner of war.  Regarding legal grounds for Satan to have permission to act.  "If I believe a lie of Satan and act upon that line in some behavior, I give him (legal) ground against me.  If I...give in to some fleshly sin problem and fail to claim my victory over the flesh (provided in Christ's death and resurrection), I give (legal) ground to Satan...Real (evil) spirit beings...have minds, wills, and emotions of their own.  They desire to cause you to feel with their emotions, think their thoughts, and (your) will to do what is their will.  They will be so clever as to make it almost impossible to separate your own mind, will and emotions from theirs."  Sometimes to obtain freedom from their captivity, invading oppressive "dictating powers" need to be bound in the name of Jesus and "dispatched to the place (pit/dry place) the Lord Jesus Christ sends them."
7 There's Still a Place for Objective Doctrine  "It is NOT enough to know sound doctrine.  I must use it and apply it in my DAILY walk," especially in my "doctrinal praying,"  "All of our hard work, sincerity, and effort" is "not sufficient.  Only the absolute (scriptural) Truth of God applied (consistently) against the enemy" will prevail.  "1st we must resist" the enemy, per "James 4:7 and Peter 5:8-9."   War like this, "Satan, I resist you and all of your workers in the Person and power of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I submit to the Lordship and control of the Lord Jesus...I bring the power of my Lord's incarnation, His crucifixion, His resurrection, His ascension, His glorification, and His 2nd coming directly to focus against you and all of your work against me.  I claim my union with the Lord Jesus Christ, and I resist you.  I resist you, and I force you to flee from before the Truth of God."   In Jesus name I pray, thank and praise You.  Amen.
Chapter 11 Tools for Warfare  For demonic oppression "Daily resolve to believe God and (resolve) to fight for your deliverance.  Passivity and hopelessness is deadly defeat...Daily thank God for your warfare and for what He is teaching you through the battle."

Burke, Billy - Freedom from Fatal Thinking - God's Remedy for healing of the Mind "Many today are getting blessed, healed and set free, yet do not have the muscle in their mind to keep the blessing.  Therefore, they suffer with a sick heart, because the Bible says that 'Hope deferred maketh the heart sick' Proverbs 13;12.  Whatever you receive by way of the anointing must be kept by way of a renewed mind that has its foundation in the Word of God."  It is imperative for us to speak scripture out loud, so that our ears hear and our heart begins to agree with what God says.  Then the Holy Spirit has the opportunity to do in us what He hears us speak out loud, the words of papa God.

Chapter 1 - The 3 Greatest Influences  Psalm 119 Thy word have I hid in my heart.  What David "was saying is I have swallowed that Word (of God)...Sooner or later that (spoken/memorized/believed) Word (of God in scripture) will be in there (my heart/spirit/ mind/body) working mightily and will come and rescue me from whatever has a hold on me."
Ezekiel 3:1-4 KJV  - He (one with appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord) said unto me, "Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll (Torah scroll), and go speak unto the house of Israel." 
2So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat that roll. 
3And He said unto me, "Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee." 
Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. 
4And He said unto me, "Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with My words unto them."
Ezekiel 3:10 TCJB   Then He said to me, "Human being, receive in you heart and hear with your ears all My Words that I speak to you.  11Then go to the exiles, to your countrymen; and speak to themTell them, 'Here is what Adonai Elohim says,'  whether they listen or not."
Chapter 2 Strongholds  In a boxing/wrestling ring the winner will have a strong hold on the opponent.  Likewise strong habits and wrong ways of thinking will have a strong hold on our minds.  This is called a "stronghold."  "Anything you rehearse (practice/repeat) becomes strong (a habit).  Any muscle that you exercise becomes firm."  Some strong
holds are even inherited or transmitted/passed down the bloodline.  One way God deprograms/reprograms is by our applying "the blood of Jesus and...the Word of God."
Chapter 3 Starving Your Mind  We reject/refuse/starve/filter out/ the negative thoughts and those people/things in our lives that trigger defeat.  We feed/encourage/nurture the positive thoughts and those people/things in our lies that trigger health/healing.  That is the way we build hope/healing/deliverance/ spiritual muscle.

Chapter 7 Shutting Down the Wrong Voices to Keep the Blessing - When we align our "thoughts with His thoughts and" our "words to His words" then God will  back us up; "the hand of God is now free to move in" our direction.

Burt, Arthur - How to Be Ordinary - - Jesus was slandered/name-called for being born out of wedlock (John 8:41) and accused of being mentally ill (Matthew 12:24).  He was also mocked/questioned/doubted for knowing things (by the Holy Spirit) that he did not learn (by the mind/intellect) in school/temple (John 7:15).  In part, the accusers were right, for Jesus was conceived before his parents married; plus he did know/had-insight-into spiritual things that normally only the rabbis and prophets rather than the commoner knew/had access to.  Jesus can identify with us who are maligned.  More importantly, He can and will fix us, when we are ready to become a nobody, and allow Him to become a somebody in our lives.  "God does much with little, most with least, and everything with nothing." 
1st Corinthians 1:27 KJV  "God hath chosen (to use/bless/to work through/to reveal HIS glory through) the weak things, the base things, the foolish things, the despised things, and the things which are not."   Nonetheless, He, the head, needs all His body parts, 2 legs, 2 arms, 2 eyes, etc.  Each individual needs, not only God but also, others.  One must NOT live in spiritual isolation.  One needs a spiritual family.
Burt, Arthur - Surrender Your Key to Spiritual Success -
Chapter 4 Some Keys, but Not the Key  "Psychology, for example, is a key, but not the key.  The Bible (the greatest book on psychology) does not so much stress the educating of the mind as it does the renewing of the mind (having first renewed the spirit, for scripture is food for the spirit).  "Be ye transformed [that is, changed] by the renewing of your mind (thoughts/thinking/insight/understanding)." Romans 12:2 KJV "Let this (God's) mind (thoughts/ideas/facts/truth) be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." Philippians 2:5 KJV
Chapter 10 Walking the Land 
"God...can give us back again wasted years, but He will not do it until we admit that we have wasted the years...God...told me...'You will have (to confess) the truth that you have missed My will because of your pride and rebellion'.  There are many people...wanting to cover up mistakes where they have missed God...
The truth involves taking blame.  If we do not have the truth (root cause/problem) over past failure (exposed and removed), we will go in a continuous round of the  recurring issue...round and round, like the children of Israel did in the wilderness for 40 years...
We may blame the devil, our wives, our circumstances, but until we take the blame for our own (part of the) failure, we will never get anywhere with God...
Esau sought his lost birthright with tears but did not find it."   It seems that Arthur differentiates between thoughts and actions.  God can see our motives, but people see our actions. With Arthur, unbelief and pride apparently do not fall into the sin category, but rather the motive category, where God searches the heart. (Sometimes it is the right motive, but the wrong act, or wrong time, because we are acting out of our own need/idea or the need/idea of another, rather than out of obedience to the will, command and timing of the Lord.  Additionally, we have the problem of incorrect perception, which is often the case with mental illness.  Until such time that one is off his medication, working sufficiently to pay all his own bills, and not dependent on another in any capacity, then one should have/submit to at least a spiritual guardian, such as a rabbi, priest, pastor daily/weekly/monthly/annually as the need arises.  Perhaps this could be by contract with such as a health care proxy/psychiatric medical power of attorney.  However, this too can be abused, so stay plugged into the church which contributed the most to your being free from your illness, so they can daily intercede for your wellbeing and visit you often, even if it is in the hospital.)
Burt, Arthur - Boomerang - the Funeral of Failure - - Introduction - "You do NOT need to be repaired; you need to be replaced" (by the Holy Spirit).
Part #1 - The Opening - "A strong man defeats his enemy.  A wise man uses his enemy...Satan is God's sheep dog."
"With every chain the devil binds men with, there is always one link that isn't real...
The 1st (the root).  He (Satan) is a liar from the beginning.  Examine the 1st link (incident/trauma/hurt/wound/vow) that binds (& blinds) you in your failure (problem/error/ sin/mistake) and you will find you are believing a lie...The man who (daily) abides in Jesus is devil proof.  The man who believes a lie (deception, who blames others/excuses oneself/ claims entitlement/steals God's glory) is fighting both God and the devil...
God will uphold the legal right of the devil to visit (those manifesting) his own (evil/unhealthy/negative nature).  Truth in the inward parts (of one's heart) will dissolve the platform of lies on which my failure stands.  Call the devil's bluff.  (Repent and then request the Lord's help.)  Then  watch God" (and your guardian angel act on your behalf).

Chavda, Mahesh - The Hidden Power of Speaking in Tongues -
Chapter 6 The Voice of the Lord shares that "speaking in tongues breaks the power of even the strongest natural leaders and sends (evil) principalities and (demonic) powers fleeing."  [This shows that it is imperative for self defense to request of Jesus His salvation AND Holy Spirit baptism (with the evidence of speaking in holy tongues.)]
Chapter 4 Baptized in the Spirit notes that praying in tongues prevents the enemy/Satan/anyone to understand our thoughts/prayers and even frustrates them and their schemes.  It is best to pray a minimum of 30 minutes a day in tongues.  The more we pray in tongues, the more spiritual power we have to defeat the negative in our lives and win the positive in our lives; not by our works but by the power of God's Holy Spirit in our lives.

Cho, Rev David Yonggi of Korea - The 4th Dimension - publisher
Chapter 5 The School of Andrew shares that many still live with their "old minds" after receiving forgiveness and salvation from Jesus.  This spiritual immaturity is a set up for relapse.  One needs to read Scripture and pray daily, plus have regular ongoing Christian fellowship to renew the brain (DNA/cells) and  (retrain/reeducate) the mind (thoughts), both spiritually and physically.  Rules: Let your cup be half full rather than half empty; be/speak positive rather than negative. 
"A man always acts according to his thoughts...God relates to each of us only through our thought life...Retrain your thought life...If you have inferiority consciousness, poverty consciousness, sickness consciousness, or failure consciousness, God can never work."  The Holy Spirit reminds us, "You are a child (a jewel)
of the King, an important person.  Keep (thinking and) acting like the big shot (VIP/treasure/beloved person) you are."  Do not misinterpret trouble for God's abandonment.  All God's beloved disciples and prophets had many troubles. Often troubles help to build character.  Troubles are not punishment, but rather trials/tests.  Regardless whether the problems come from heaven or hell, the extra spiritual attention means we are something extra special to God and/or extra dangerous to Satan.  Do not be discouraged; instead rejoice. 
Chapter 6 God's Address "Your God (Jesus/Holy Spirit) dwelleth in you with all His resources, power and authority; His address is in(side) you," to meet all your needs today, right now, if we permit Him and not muzzle Him.  First and foremost repent of and reject/refuse hatred, fear, inferiority, and guilt.  Condemnation of is Satan, whereas conviction is of the Holy Spirit and leads to healthy confession.

1 5 Key Steps to Receiving Your healing  "Both salvation and healing are brought about by faith.  Hebrews ll:1 says, 'Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things NOT seen.'  Faith is our proof and the material substance of our healing...It does NOT matter whether or not you feel saved.  We are NOT saved by our feelings...nor healed by our feelings.  Both...are products of faith...Begin praising God and thanking Him for the manifestation of our healing, regardless of whether you feel healed or not...
After you have been healed, it is the devil's job to make you feel sick...Biblical faith is an action word that takes place in your spirit, not your emotions...When you worry over whether God's done it or not, you may lose your healing through doubt and unbelief, both of which are sins...Refuse to allow the enemy to change your mind concerning God's healing...
One of the chief reasons people do not receive (or do not retain) their healing is because they continue to hold grudges in their hearts, unmercifully condemning.

Copeland, Kenneth - Kenneth Copeland Publications - John G Lake - book -
John Lake realized that the devil wants to make us like himself.  That insight should help us to flee any inkling/temptation/ voice/thought/idea that is ungodly or hurtful to self or others.  God in scripture declares healing/health for everyone, but Satan wills death/deception/harm/disease/misery for everyone. God is insulted by Satan's suggestions, which we so glibly accept, such as we will never get better. 
Chapter 32 Sin in the Flesh emphasizes the urgency for one to believe in Jesus as his savior, healer, deliverer, and baptizer, because after the doctor's work or clergy's faith has fixed you, then the enemy
will return and defeat you again, unless you have a personal relationship with Doctor Jesus.
Chapter 36 Behold, I Give You Power shares the story of Lake's son Otto who had typhoid fever.  The 1st time he was healed in 5 minutes.  After his relapse, it took 5 days.  Neither time did Lake quit praying until the devil was defeated and the disease gone.  Lake sets an example for family to never quit praying.  

D'Andrea, Molly  Set Free - True Accounts of Those Who Have Been Liberated from Pornography, Sexual Addiction, Masturbation, Rape, Molestation, Incest, Lesbianism and Homosexuality
Chapter 18 Staying Free reminds us that after Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, he left, but only for a while. 
hen Jesus was tempted, Jesus retorted/challenged, "Satan, get behind Me; for it is written (in scripture)"...
We always respond out loud with scripture/God's word, for He (not we) has the words of protection/defense.
We must never stand alone on our own.  We must fill the void where Satan left with God/Jesus/the Holy Spirit.  We need to:
(1) Forgive all past offenses.
(2) Never look at porn or even keep it in the house.
(3) Renounce, reject and stop all masturbation.
(4) Separate from all lovers. 
(5) Reject, refuse all condemnation (+ reject/refuse all filthy/ungodly/lustful images/thoughts in your mind). 
(6) Daily/weekly meet with Christians and with Jesus. 
(7) Daily read Scripture, pray, and sing/worship.
[(8) Be sure you have asked Jesus to forgive you and to come live in your heart.  If not do right NOW. 
(9) Be sure you have asked the Jesus to baptize you with His Holy Spirit, with the
evidence of speaking in tongues.  If not do right NOW. Praying in tongues daily will
speed up your recovery.

Chapter What Kinds of People Come for Deliverance?  ""I only deal with believers (in Jesus Messiah).  There would be little point in casting demons from a lost person.  Others (that is other demons) would immediately enter, because there is no (spiritual or mental) resistance."
Chapter 12 More Personal Accounts - section I Now Know What to Do  Healed/delivered individuals can more readily "recognize the enemy's subtle attempts to regain strongholds...When I do recognize them, I now know what to do...I recognize, rebuke, and remain" (resist and refuse, in the name and power of Jesus Christ.)
Chapter 19 What Is the Correct Terminology? - Dickerman refutes the idea that demons can return when then Holy Spirit has been invited to occupy the individual.  That is because the Holy Spirit occupies the human spirit.  Demons occupy the mind and flesh.  When there is backsliding, sin, an open spiritual door, un-severed curses, or ancestral legal rights for a demon to oppress or occupy, then they can legally return.
Chapter 22 Keeping Gates Closed  "Often I speak aloud to the enemy when I recognize his (triggers/demonic) attacks. 
I resist immediately...
'I rebuke you. I resist you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I forbid you to come back...
I'll be standing on the same Word.  I am Jesus Christ's name'...There is power in confession.  Your salvation came through confession.  Restoration...comes through confession."  Remember to worship God upon waking every morning, regardless of how you feel, and again at bedtime.
Dickerman, Don - Keys to Liberated Living - Keeping the enemy out of our lives and keeping the Word of God in us is the goal.  mini booklet to assist with relapse prevention after deliverance - spiritual maintenance -
A main item of discussion is that we are NOT to ask/beg/pray God to do what He has deputized us to do.  We, not God, are to repent, reject, refuse, bind, and cast out demons.  Yes, He and His angels will haul them off, but only as we SPEAK.  Remember that the mouth which speaks aloud scripture is the sword of the Holy Spirit.  Our mouth is our weapon and our tool in the hands of an angel.  Therefore let us always empower the heavenly host and never the enemy.
Remember to continually praise God regardless of our feelings, especially at night when nightmares love to attack.

Chapter 3 A Victory in View - "The victory has already been won (by Christ). 
We have a defeated enemy...He can only operate by deception...if he can steal some authority from you, because God has given back all the authority to Jesus, and Jesus said, 'Behold I give you the authority.' (Luke 10)...
As we focus on ourselves (me/myself/I), victory can seem fleeting...when we listen to the enemy point out our (forgiven) weaknesses and mistakes from the past.  If we're not careful, we will start to agree with the enemy.  When you agree with the enemy, you get the enemy's results, and you certainly don't want what he has to offer to you, so don't speak about your past failures.  Don't bring up guilt and shame.  If you want to talk about the past, bring up the enemy's he used to be one of the choir leaders in Heaven, how he used to be one of the 'morning stars.' and look where he is now...what a mess he made out of things.  He lost that lofty position, so talk about his past...present, and...future.  Only talk about your future in Christ." 
Chapter 4 Called to Be Valiant - "You were born in enemy territory.  Since your birth (whether you realized it or not), you have been at war, because your enemy has 3 known purposes: to steal, to kill, and to destroy.  You have no choice...
When the enemy declares war on you, you are at war.  The choice is before you is:
will you be valiant in your fight for the Lord or will you be led captive by the enemy?"
Chapter 5 Visitation Is Vital - "In the spirit realm (dimension) it is critically important to know who is speaking. 
The enemy (of God) tries to counterfeit everything the Lord does...
Be constantly talking with the Lord, so that we immediately know His voice, and do not follow another."

Earley, Dave - The 21 Most Effective Prayers of the Bible - - Chapter 6 I have Sinned - The Prayer of David - 2nd Samuel 12:13 - reminds us "that guilt follows sin like a vulture attaches itself to rotten meat.  Guilt followed David because he had  sinned...Hell is the expression of the absence of God, and guilt excludes us from the presence of God."
Eckhardt, John - Deliverance Thesaurus - Demon Hit List  booklet - John recommends the use of a Thesaurus to help both individual and grouping/cluster demon recognition.  "When we are dealing with demons" it is sometimes preferable to speak its name/personality rather than to shout, "Hey You."  The demon could deny "which 'you' the person was calling."  "Identifying the Enemy is a key to casting (evicting) him out...Names found in this thesaurus are all subject to the name of Jesus."  Exposure/identification/lack of secrecy often demolishes strongholds. Awareness/recognition also helps to prevent relapse/demon reentry.
, John - Loose Thyself - booklet - - A believer in Jesus Christ can deliver himself from demons, once he has received the initial ministry of deliverance.  This is basically relapse prevention.  If we have been given the tools (like a carpenter), then we need to use them. 
Our tool bag would be the baptism in the holy spirit.  The Holy Spirit will give us insight and help us identify spirits to loose ourselves of = the past, ungodly soul ties, memory recall of past hurts, torment, infirmity, rejection, rejection from the womb, self-rejection, fear of rejection, etc.  We can also enlist warrior angels to come to our assistance.
Eckhardt, John- Let Us Alone - The Cry of Demons -     
Chapter 3 Little by Little - Progressive Deliverance - "KNOW THIS FACT: DELIVERANCE IS MORE PROGRESSIVE THAN INSTANTANEOUS...We must fall out of agreement with attitudes of pride, rebellion, lust, hurt, bitterness and fear in order to be delivered...Ignorance of the devil and his demons will rob you of your deliverance...
We should NOT be ignorant of Satan's devices...Don't allow a lack of knowledge to open the door for the spirit of destruction," discouragement, defeat, or death.  "It is also possible to identify demons by the age of the person at time of entrance.  For example...when they were babies or small children.  Sometimes the Lord will give you a word of knowledge...Traumas or incidents in a person's life...may have opened the door for evil spirits to enter...Ephesians 1:21  Everything named must bow to the name of Jesus."
Common Demon Names = Rejection, Pride, Rebellion, Lust, Witchcraft, Fear, Bitterness, Depression, Addiction, Religious.
When SOMETHING has a grip or strong hold on us, in all likelihood, it is a demon. We need to reject the spirit of rejection and rebel against the spirit of rebellion.  These invisible THINGS are NOT necessarily just feelings/mood swings/chemical imbalances that need to be medicated and confessed to a shrink.  In fact some of our root problems are just pain old unconfessed sin that needs to be repented of in the confessional.  That in itself will unload a ton truck of guilt off our backs.
FINALLY, when you say or hear another say, "Let me alone," then perhaps you can recognize that in all likelihood, it is the demon speaking, which does not want to be recognized nor cast out.

Frangipane, Francis - The Three Battlegrounds - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - founder of  Page 14/15 shares Frangipane's definition that enemy spiritual strongholds are spiritual fortresses in our thought patterns/ideas/mind where Satan and his legions hide and are protected.  They exist over individuals, families, churches, communities and nations.  They need to be pulled down prior to victory.  If we do not recognize our sins and/or our enemy Satan,
then we may relapse.

Furry, Vickie - book or 1/04 audio   Dead Men Walking - - At a Kathryn Kuhlman service God instantaneously healed Vickie, age 13,  of a deformed body.  However it took Vickie many years to learn that the most important healing is spiritual, that we can do nothing on our own for God, and that God uses only empty vessels who are totally surrendered to Him.  In the book of Revelation it says that at judgment time Jesus rejects those who claim to have done wonders for God.  Jesus will never allow anyone to claim credit for the work only He does in us for others.  We need to be empty of self and full of Him.  He uses only cracked pots, nobodies, nothing, out of which to reveal His glory. Conclusion. 
It is important to seek a complete physical healing, but is it more important to seek the relationship with Christ, for which we were created from the foundation of the world.  Even if we do it to please God, we also need to do it for ourselves; for the sin/spiritual/ root causes of the disease may come back upon us if we do not mature spiritually (pray/go to church/read the Bible, etc) and go back into our old wrong habits (friends/places/foods/relying on our emotions/feelings).

Garlock, HB & Ruthanne - Before We Kill and Eat You - - "At that moment I was filled with the calm assurance that I was healed...and began to thank God...praising God and speaking in tongues...
After a bit, I...became so sick, so very sick.  I knew that this was the crisis moment.  I felt if I didn't hold on to my healing now I would be gone, so I had it out with the devil.  'Old devil, this is the last time you can make me sick,' I declared aloud.  'I am healed.  The Word says I am healed, God says I'm healed, the Spirit witnesses that I am healed, and I am healed.'"

This is an awesome book, especially the chapter on SCHIZOPHRENIA.  The Lord explained schizophrenia to Ida Mae.
Hammond, Frank D - The Perils of Passivity - booklet - - In war and in politics, to do nothing is to lose to the opposition/enemy.  The same law applies to the spiritual kingdom.  An unlocked door is an open door to the devil.  There is a saying, "See no evil.  Do no evil.  Speak no evil."  It can also mean stick your head, like an ostrich, into a hole in the ground, while the enemy loots and ravishes your family.  Whether or not we are at war with Satan, he is always at war with us.  To defend our family we need to come against him like an aggressive football player.  We need to see evil and speak against evil, using the words of scripture, which are alive and dangerous to Satan's kingdom.

Hampsch, Rev John H - Thought Control - booklet - - Science tells us that every thought we think leaves an impression on the brain cortex, the more repetitious, the more permanent.  These brain grooves are like those on a floppy disk and can affect thought patterns, emotions (personality), biochemistry (health), and behavior (character).  Thoughts can even affect the body (physical health).  They can even cause disease, such as stress causing a heart attack. Likewise thoughts such as prayer can cause health.  Refuse to harbor any rogue thought. Judas did not capture and reject/refuse his evil thoughts; Judas lost the best career in the universe, being one of Jesus' 12 original disciples.  He may not have recognized that his thoughts were from Satan.  He certainly did not repent.  Instead he committed suicide.  Suicide got him into hotter trouble, hell...
Be reminded of GIGO (or garbage in, garbage out)...
Some suggestions: Censor your TV, radio, magazines, books, movies, friendships, in addition to your thoughts...
Pray daily for the Lord God to filter your thoughts and put warrior angels round about to protect and help you. 
Read Psalm 91 daily.  Go to communion daily.  Attend church/synagogue weekly.  Do NOT isolate.  Stay in the company of uplifting, helpful, caring, holy individuals.  We cannot go it alone, but the Holy Spirit can go with us each day.  Ask Him.

Hayes, Norvel - God's Medicine of Faith - the Word - - Chapter 3 A Pauper Becomes an Heir - Sometimes...for healing or for salvation, the demons which control their bodies and minds have to 1st be cast out.  Too often when God heals a person, the healing doesn't last because the person healed allows the demons to come back.  If un-forgiveness, bitterness, resentment...has given a foothold to the devil, our attitudes must be changed to prevent the demonic attacks on our minds."  See Matthew 12:43-45 "Read the (4) gospels and the book of Acts, and take authority in His name...
Cast out demons.  It isn't optional.  It is a direct command. Mark 16:17...Unless His...children...obey this command, it will never be done and the possessed will be eternally lost...Faith SEES the answer spiritually before the human eyes actually see it...God has been trying to get this across to His church for almost 2,000 years...
Praise the Lord for the answer...Don't you worry about God's will.  The Bible is God's will.  It is your will that God has to work with...Worship and faith must PRECEDE anything we receive from God."
, Norvel - How to Cast Out Devils (formerly Jesus Taught Me to Cast Out Devils) -  
Chapter 4 The Boy Who Set Schoolhouses on Fire  "Say, according to James, chapter 4 verse 7...'Jesus, I love You'...That verse says, 'Submit yourselves therefore to God.  RESIST the devil and he will flee from you'...Obey that and resist and begin to tell that (oppressive/manipulative/evil) power that you belong to God and that you love Jesus...
You must fight the Devil and you must do it in Jesus' name, because when you repent of your sins and ask Jesus to come into your heart, you become part of the church (God's family)...the place where Jesus dedicated all of His power...It is up to us what we do with it (His power/ spiritual weapons to defeat evil/harm/disease/insanity/deformity/even death)...Tell Jesus that you love Him and begin to worship Him.  Begin to say (speak/whisper), 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,' and (when you do not quit) you will find deliverance."
Chapter 7 The College Boy Who Lost His Mind  shares that it is imperative (immediately after or preferably BEFORE ANY DELIVERANCE - BEFORE BEING LOOSED FROM THE ENEMY - BEFORE BEING LEFT ON ONE'S OWN) to have already set in place a ministry to which the delivered can/will go individually or go as a family/group for follow up, a place which has the knowledge, power, and obedience to the Trinity, able and willing to cast out demons, raise the dead, praise and worship, minister the baptism of the Holy Spirit, etc to keep its members/attendees full of the Holy Spirit so there is NO room for the evil spirits, only terror when demons come near.  (Additionally, the delivered needs to be taught in advance how to defend himself plus what demonic potholes to look out for.  Occult objects need to be destroyed and bedrooms need to be prayed over.)

Chapter 4 Get Scriptures to Cover Your Case  Get "Scriptures that cover your case...
You can tell what kind of Scriptures you need by what the devil is doing in your life...
Don't you know that the devil is going to try and attack you...your body and your wife's and your children's bodies...He has a one-track mind.  He wants the grave for all us us...He's a ruthless killer. (John 10:10)...
If you don't smother the devil (with spoken scripture aimed at him, scripture relevant to your case), you're going to have trouble all of your life... He'll bombard your mind and try to get you to do things the way you want to do them (or the way he wants), rather than the way God says to do things in the Scriptures." (Satan will try to trick us into committing suicide/murder/rape/whatever contradicts God's heart in Scripture.)

Chapter 8 Demons Do NOT Obey Weak Christians  "Unless you resist and rebuke the devil, demons are NOT going to go, anywhere, ever.  Do NOT be ashamed of the Gospel or (afraid to apply) the power of Jesus' name.  It does NOT matter how you feel or do not feel.  Every day, resist the devil, in Jesus' name....You cannot cast out demons without faith...the Word...boldness.
"  "Bind the devil in Jesus' name...A demon can be in you for 20 years and never scream and fight as long as you do what he wants.  He will not manifest 24 hours a day; only whenever he needs to in order to keep you in line."
Hayes, Norvel - You Have Authority - booklet - - God Will Manifest Himself - "If you don't believe God's Word FOR YOURSELF and you get healed through some other person's ministry...that same disease will usually come (back) upon you AGAIN in time."
And by the Word of Your Testimony - "You yourself will have to...overcome (relapse/disease return) by the blood of the Lamb and by the (spoken)word of your (own) testimony (plus confession of Scripture)."
"If you ever get tired of your testimony of what Jesus did for you (on the cross and personally), God will allow you to go back to the state you were in before.  So don't ever stop giving your testimony abut that the Lord has done for you...give that testimony as long as you live."
Hayes, Norvel - What Causes Jesus to Work Miracles - A must read book - - Jesus reminds us to SPEAK TO our mountains (problems/disease/cancer), rather than to people, to pastors, or to Him.  Refusal to do so is rebellion!  Chapter 2 Miracles Come Through Faith - God Will Perform His Word   Jesus explains to Norvel, "They don't talk TO their mountains... Anything...that is causing them a mountain and the devil put it there...Say..."Be thou removed from me and be thou cast into the depths of the sea"...Talk TO mountains, TO empty pocketbooks, TO sick bodies, TO confused minds,
To lost children
,'" in the name of Jesus.  "God is NOT going to remove it for you;you have to remove it yourself by speaking to it in the name of Jesus...If you have a cancer...then you had better start talking to it...Cancer doesn't obey desires...The devil doesn't obey wishes; he obeys commands spoken with the authority in the name of Jesus...God works with words... Psalm 107:20...says that He sent His word, healed them, and delivered them from their destruction..
If you still can't SPEAK TO your mountain and command it to be cast into (under) the depths of the sea... it's because you are a disobedient, rebellious Christian...who refuses to obey the Lord."
( Never Never Land   Micah 7:19 NKJV   You will cast all our sins into depths of the sea.)
"If you go around saying that you are sick and weak and broke and defeated, then you are in rebellion...You're telling earthly truth, but a heavenly lie...Do as God does...Begin to call things, not as they are in the natural realm, but as they are in the spiritual realm... Your mind will fight you every step of the way.  You have to learn to bypass your mind and go straight to your spirit.  Stand the name of Jesus."
Hayes, Norvel - The Blessing of Obedience booklet - "God likes busy...An idle mind is the devil's workshop.  If you'll (daily) worship God, read the Bible (out loud), pray in tongues, win souls, pray for the sick, and cast out devils, you'll NEVER go crazy...As long as you are a rebel against a particular portion of the Bible, God won't work for you in that area...
We were more confused than the devil, because even the devil knows Jesus will heal people.  (It's awful to be more stupid than the devil!)"

Heflin, Ruth Ward -
John Sherrill also wrote, with David Wilkerson, the powerful The Cross and the Switch-blade, the story of David’s intervention in the drug scene of New York streets where large numbers of gang members were saved and stayed saved because they discovered the power of the Holy Ghost (baptism) to keep them."

Heidler, Robert D - Set Yourself Free - - This book is a pre-deliverance, deliverance, post-deliverance, and self-deliverance manual.  One major self-defense against relapse is to forgive.  Forgive even those who do not come and ask for forgiveness.  If need be, forgive that person daily, as long as/whenever hate/bitterness/hurt/ superiority/etc rises in your thoughts.  Heidler reminds us to recognize (asking the Holy Spirit to bring to our mind), repent of, confess, and renounce each sin of which we are aware.  (Do this at least yearly, plus before taking communion.  Scripture reminds us that many are sick, even unto death, as a consequence of receiving/taking holy communion improperly.)  Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any bad strongholds.  Listen to scripture on tapes or read scripture out loud.  At the end of each chapter ask the question, "What is God's truth?"  Ask, "Am I obeying this truth?"  If the answer is no, immediately repent.  If the answer is, "No, BUT..." then you know you have a stronghold.  Demolish each stronghold by contradicting it out loud with the Word of God.  For instance, if you are too timid, speak, "God has not given me a spirit of timidity, but of power, love and a sound mind."  (If you are praying for another, replace the word me with that person's name.)  Do this day in and day out untill the Word of God accomplishes its work.  Once the stronghold is removed, repent - for what we have done wrong, failed to do, or what lie we have believed.  In addition to strongholds in the mind are strongholds in the heart (emotions).

Kendall, RT - The Anointing, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow - - When we have an impression, impulse or feeling, we always need to check it out.  We need to ask ourselves, "What would the devil want us to do?"  Once we answer that question, we need to do just the opposite.  Then most of the time we will be safe.  In fact, this rule applies to any temptation, also.  2nd, what does the Bible say about it?  Regardless of the strength of the impulse, feeling, vision, or word spoken to me, I must NOT obey if it does not agree with or contradicts scripture. 3rd, if you are pressured to obey an idea against the real you, then do NOT obey, because the Holy Spirit brings peace not anxiety. 4th, as we read, listen to on tape, and memorize scripture we begin to become familiar with God's thoughts.  That brings safety when thoughts come from the enemy.  It helps us to recognize and reject those thoughts that contradict the thoughts of God.

King, Patricia - Spiritual Revolution - - Chapter 8 - Pitfalls and Activation reminds us to always find and use a good accountability TEAM because one seldom can observe deception and/or pride in oneself.  One also needs to realize that spiritual encounters are NOT endorsement of one's character or maturity in Christ.  Do not trust spiritual encounters to determine one's closeness (or lack of closeness) to God, whether it be oneself or a pastor!  King reminds us to always/continually test all spiritual experiences against Scripture, God's character and God's heart.  Keep a Bible and concordance handy for constant reference and daily reading.  "When you receive a powerful touch from the Lord's hand, it says nothing about you.  It doesn't endorse your character or your ministry.  It does, however, say something
about the Lord.  It says He is mighty!  He is loving and merciful" to you.  He adores/cherishes/delights in you.
Kraft, Charles H - Defeating Dark Angels - Breaking Demonic Oppression in the Believer's Life - -
Kraft reminds those who are mentally ill that they are NOT insane or incurable, but are likely oppressed by demons, as are many, including Christians and even pastors. Kraft cites the "worm theology" where man sees himself negatively as a worm;  Satan puts thoughts into our minds which we choose to accept as our own.  Demons need a legal right to enter an open door into our lives.  Often that open door is a trauma or emotional wound that we have allowed to fester, rather than to forgive and go on with God. First we need to stop wallowing in our emotional garbage.  1st and foremost forgive.
Get professional counseling, if available, and continue ONLY IF it reduces/ eliminates the bulk of your issues that interfere with your daily living. Demons will become weaker as we eliminate the emotional garbage that they feed on and take advantage of.  Then is is easier for us to tell them to go and never return (in the name of Jesus), and easier for them to go, per Kraft's experience.  Inheritance can be a legal passport for a demon.  That is why we need to confess AND renounce the sins of our blood relatives, back to the time of Adam and Eve.  For each individual known sin (commission and omission) we need to repent and renounce.  Demons prefer to torment/harass/destroy born-again Christians (rather than non-Christians) to get them to question whether they are saved, sane, lovable, usable, and/or curable.  An oppressing demon when confronted may share that he could not get a stronger grip on a person who "is too close to Jesus/God" or that he is "in a mind but not within" a person/body.  If we are feeling oppressed, we can say aloud or under our breath, "If this is the enemy, stop it, in the name of Jesus."  During ministry, when a demon or demons respond to a command, sometimes they use a person's voice, but if they are weak they will give the person impressions/thoughts.  At such time the person may be confused as to which words are his own and which are of the demon(s).  The  counselor will help sort that out.  The simplest way to sort through this, if you are alone, is to test the words/thoughts against scripture.  If the words/thoughts agree with scripture, they are likely of you or God.  When they disagree with scripture then they are apt to be emotional garbage that needs to be taken to Jesus or the demon(s) that feed on that garbage.  Since this is a spiritual discussion/response of a demon, it can bypass the mind, and not come to the person's attention until he has heard it with his own ears.

Liardon, Roberts - God's Generals - Why They Succeeded and Why Some Failed - - This book is a review of 12 healing ministries.  It concludes by warning pastors to implement relapse prevention.  Begin to build an immunity to the things that affect you negatively.  If something begins to bother you, or you begin to feel another "hit" in an area where you have been weak or tormented in the past, then start building the immunity in that particular area. Read the Bible, if possible daily. Find, memorize, and recite out loud scripture that applies to each area of your vulnerability.  (If you are Catholic, go to mass daily, because confession and communion terrorize the enemy.)  Surround yourself with people who love your Lord.  Go to church, Bible study, church groups, or any spiritual group where there are people who will love you and pray with you. When that "thing" tries to capture you, you will be able to sail your ship through it and not get dumped into the sea, like you did in the past.
Liardon, Roberts - I Saw Heaven -
Liardon, Roberts - We  Saw Heaven - - Liardon visited Heaven at 8 years of age.  At one point Jesus was grieving/weeping that man seldom has enough spiritual insight to believe and hold on until the TIME is right for Him to manifest His answer to their prayer.  When Liardon begins to think or speak words of doubt or unbelief, he immediately captures and rejects those thoughts/ideas that wound both him and Jesus, plus rob him of health/healing/ peace.  (Liardon's personal area of temptation was/is homosexuality, perhaps due to professional isolation.  This is now being dealt with professional/pastoral oversight.  Often the sins we fall into may result from entirely different needs/hurts than are apparent.)

Lozano, Neal - Unbound - A Practical Guide to Deliverance (inner healing) - 
1st half of book is for the client/patient.  2nd half of book is for the practitioner. 
Each half helps both.  Relying on God and on not ourselves, we ask self/client to
(1) believe (in Christ)
(2) repent (aloud of EACH specific sin)
(3) forgive (anyone who has wounded them, citing out loud EACH specific incident that brings tears/pain/hurt)
(4) renounce (aloud EACH negative emotion/spirit that is involved in the above forgiveness - eg, spirit of unforgiveness, anger, hurt, bitterness, rage, self-pity, control, condemnation, abandonment), and then to (5) command each evil spirit individually by name (mentioned aloud previously) to leave.  Each prayer/step is to begin, "In the name of Jesus, I"
Staying free is based on many ongoing steps.  One must realize -
1-Winning a battle is NOT winning a war.  Won territory needs constant defense.  The UN military presence in any war zone is one example.  God did not give (drop into his lap) to Moses the land He promised him.  Instead, Israel had to fight for it.  Battles are for building of character.  Is a lie of Satan that one should expect to live happily ever after. 
It is a fairy tale or a tale of heaven.  It is not easy to work out at a gym if you are used to sitting at a desk all day working.  Your muscles are weak.  Likewise our spiritual muscles are weak, until such time we build them up by saying no continually to whatever we are in the habit of saying yes to.  For instance, if we are in the habit of lying most of the day in bed due to psychiatric illness and psychiatric drugs, then we need to fight to shower, shave, shovel the snow, or do anything useful.  That fight makes Satan mad, but our spiritual muscles glad.
2-Introspection is destructive.  A good protection against introspection and self-pity is to talk out loud to Jesus (rather than just think about it, or rather than talk to a safe confident about it).  In a Christian counselor's office you can talk to God in the presence of the mentor.  This puts your reliance on God and off of man or self.  Unhealthy introspection is mainly when your or your counselor probe continually and rehash over and over again past wounds which cause you emotional and psychiatric harm.  Healthy introspection is when a professional asks a question once and has you immediately take it to the Lord, or when it surfaces on its own when the Holy Spirit knows you are ready to deal with it.
3-Pride is both Satan's and man's biggest enemy.  Pride can hurt us more than demonic attacks, if we have asked Jesus to be our savior, for God looks out for His kids.
4-Deliverance leads to a daily relationship with Jesus and is not a quick fix formula.  If we think otherwise, our future is paved with ouches.  Deliverance is being freed from the sufferings of Satin and being delivered to the sufferings of Christ.  Satan's troubles end in disease, terror and death.  God's sufferings end in praise and eternal life.  We are never free of troubles, but we do have a helpmate, the Holy Spirit, our comforter.
5-Deliverance is an ongoing life process, not a one time exorcism.  Each time we uproot a problem/hindrance/obstacle/evil spirit, we create a manure/compost pile upon which we can stand in the name of Jesus.  As it becomes a mountain, we get closer and closer to our Lord in the heavenlies.
6-Negative thinking patterns that are inherited need to be dealt with, not only for ourselves, but also for our children's sakes.  Be sure to repent for any such generational negative patterns or sins at confession/communion.  Try to be specific, regarding any situation of which you are aware.  For instance, if you are a child out of wedlock, a sin of fornication/adultery needs to be confessed to God, on behalf of your parents.  We also need to repent of any inappropriate reactions regarding such knowledge.  For most of us it takes years and years and years, not days, to learn to walk in the freedom Christ has already provided for us on the  cross 2000 years ago.  No human has sufficient skills to rely on himself and not on God.  Negative thinking patterns are ingrained into our brains, like a floppy disk.  We need to ask God to erase the old wrong memories, to reformat and reprogram our brains, to remedy any inherited DNA which would harm us or our descendents, and to remove and chain any evil spirits.
7-No man is an island unto himself.  God knew this when he made Eve for Adam. One of the biggest protections we have is to find a minimum of one person or church group where we allow ourselves to be vulnerable enough to be helped by them, for they can be God's heart, hands and feet.
8-Scripture tells us that if we fail to repent and fail to forgive, even to forgive ourselves, we open ourselves up for a relapse. But even if we do have a relapse, the greatest danger is to quit or give up, especially to give up on God to help us.  L
uke 11:24-26 NIV
- "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it.  Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.'  When it arrives it finds the house swept clean and put in order;  then it goes and takes 7 other spirits more wicked than itself.  They go in and live there.  The final condition of that man is worse than the first."      
Lozano, Neal - Resisting the Devil - A Catholic Perspective on Deliverance -  
Chapter 5 - Exorcism and Deliverance in the New Testament - "Expulsion of the demon (exorcism/Catholic deliverance) is incomplete unless the Kingdom (of God/Trinity) comes into the person...If the person who has been delivered has NOT embraced the Kingdom (Jesus), then a door is left open to the enemy that can lead to an even greater form of bondage or torment... Deliverance brings liberation not only to one's spirit, but also to one's mind...
If a child is being prayed with for deliverance, the family must be helped as well."

MacNutt, Francis - Deliverance from Evil Spirits - - Deliverance without inner healing leaves the door open for evil spirits to return.  Healing requires time.  Emotions need healing.  Demons are real.  Healing prayer requires discernment.
Chapter 14 Freeing a Person from Spirits of Trauma adds to the other chapters in encouraging one to receive ministry for the healing of emotions/memory/wounds/trauma prior to any deliverance ministry.  After any type of ministry one needs to ask God to fill in/replace the vacancy/brokenness with Himself/ health/love; otherwise the old nature/sin/an evil spirit has a space/place/open door/invitation to move back.  
Chapter 16 Spirits of the Occult warns that occult demons are difficult to evict and subsequently difficult to keep at bay.  Individuals needing occult deliverance must do preventative spiritual work before, during and after; an AAA type of buddy system/group needs to be in place.  A percent of that person's personality will be free of oppression and needs to be protected and strengthened.  Before ministry it is imperative that the individual switch allegiances, repent of sin, renounce/reject Satan, accept/reaccept Jesus as savior (in his/her own words or repeating after the pastor), and destroy any occult objects, especially any contracts (which he can give to the pastor/minister to destroy). If speech is difficult, continue/repeat until the words are clear, binding any interfering spirits.

Maldonado, Guillermo - How to Walk in the Supernatural Power of God - - Chapter 5 Faith - the 1st Dimension of the Supernatural - "Renewing our minds is a process by which we substitute God's logic for our human reason."  "Now is the time to tell God, 'Give me a new revelation that will take me to another dimension of faith.  Connect me with men and women who can loosen it, so I can become like (saint/apostle) Peter, blessing...people who need a touch of Your supernatural power.'"  "Levels of (spiritual) authority...increase when they are exercised."

Marocco, James - Defilement editorial #1 or 9/2010 page 6
"A person becomes defiled through relationships. There are many ways, but I will focus on 4 of them. The 1st is through attitude. Attitude is a way of seeing. When you are influenced by somebody, you see things in the same manner as they do. An attitude can develop in your life without you being aware of it...
The 2nd way defilement comes through relationships is via transference and counter-transference. This occurs when a male counselor is counseling a female, and she comes with needs and begins to share them. The male counselor is empathetic, and the woman begins to transfer the love she has for her husband to the male counselor. That is called transference. Even more dangerous is counter-transference. This happens when the counselor gets caught up in her world, and transfers the love he has for his wife to the counselee.  Defilement is a very serious issue. You must be aware of the ways in which relationships can cause defilement to creep into your life. Be on guard and protect the thing most important in your life—your soul."  
James Marocco’s article Defilement Part 2 is continued in or - "There is a 3rd way demonic powers bring defilement through relationships, and that is projection. There are 2 kinds of projection: psychological and spiritual projection. Psychological projection is when a person projects their own sin on another...I was counseling a married couple years ago, and the husband was very jealous of his wife. He told me, 'My wife is committing adultery.' When I talked to the woman, I came to the conclusion she was not committing adultery...The husband was, and he had projected his sin onto her, which is why he acted so jealous.  There is a(n invisible evil) spiritual projection which is even darker than the psychological projection. Years ago, Roxanne Bryant, a woman who, at that time, had a great healing ministry, came to speak at my church. As she was preaching, she shared about a time when she was ministering in a large church in the United States. Roxanne was sitting on the platform, just before she was about to preach, when her mind became filled with horrible, sexual thoughts. She was shocked, and she began to repent.  The Holy Ghost spoke to her and said, 'Those thoughts are not coming from you; they are coming from that person.' She turned and saw it was the pastor sitting next to her.  Now, do not blame every messed up thought you have on the person you are with; it may be just your fallen human self. However, this was a case of projection (attempted control/manipulation by an evil spirit)...When it was her time to preach, and she prayed for a spirit of lust to be broken off the congregation. The moment she prayed, the pastor got up and left the building. What she did not know at the time was that he was having an affair with a woman in the church. Roxanne understood that, sometimes, demonized people project the same kind of evil which possesses them onto people who they relate to. Sexual immorality is dangerously real. If you are constantly with someone who is full of lust, you may begin to think thoughts you never thought before...
The 4th way defilement can occur via relationships is through the archetype of defilement. This simply means the defilement is huge. It is beyond the personal; it is permeating society. A good example of this would be Hitler just prior to World War II. Hitler defiled a nation with the thought of an 'ideal' Aryan race...
In addition to the 4 ways defilement comes about through relationships.
It can also come through exposure to evil. There are 2 ways you can become defiled in this way:
is vicariously and 2nd is through personal hurts...
You might wonder what I mean by 'vicarious.' Vicarious is when you are not the person performing the evil act; somebody else does, but you get enjoyment by watching. In our land, a sewer pipe from hell has been pumped into every home in America; it is called the Internet. You can see any evil you want on the Internet in the privacy of your own home.  The Internet is a tool which can be used for great good or great evil. You have a battle to fight. Your fallen human nature wants to assert itself anytime it can, and there are people–even preachers of the Gospel–who are being defiled by the Internet through porn and other evils. The enemy may say you are not hurting anyone else, or no one else will know, but that is a lie.  If somebody was dropped into a pool of sewer water and walked into the room, would you know? The person who got dropped in the water would cease smelling the stench they have, but everyone else would smell it. See, you do not smell your own stink; everybody else does. When you open yourself to evils, such as porn or other things, you stink. You affect the relationships around you, even though you do not think you do. 
2nd way you can be exposed to evil is through personal hurt. You may have been hurt or abused in some way as a child. Hurts can take place in peoples’ lives to such a degree that they end up becoming like the person who has hurt them. Through Christ, this hurt can be removed. However, you must understand the enemy would love to defile you by causing hurt and pain in your life...
One way defilement spreads is not just through relationships or exposure to evil, but defiled places and objects, as well...There is a fascinating book written by Dr. Kenneth McCall, Healing The Family Tree...He was a (Catholic) medical doctor, and some of his relatives are members of my church.  A lady came to see him one day. She was suffering from a physical abnormality, but when he gave her a checkup he could not find anything.
It was his custom to pray before the patient left. He was just about to pray, when the Holy Spirit spoke to him and said, 'Ask her a question.' So, he turned to her and said, 'Tell me about the walking stick.'  She said, 'How did you know about the walking stick?' He said, 'The Lord told me.'  She said, 'Well, in the floor of my house is this jewel-encrusted walking stick. It was stolen by a member of my family long ago from another family.  It has been in our family for generations and is under the floorboards of my house.'   Dr. McCall said to that woman, 'If you want to be healed, you must find the family who originally owned the walking stick and give it back.' It took her 2 weeks to do so, and 3 days after she gave the walking stick back to the family who originally owned it, she was healed...
As a pastor. I was called late at night by some of my cell group leaders to deal with a family who was having a demonic episode. This sweet couple was a part of my church, but the children were demonized, and the place was out of control.  I walked into the room. I will never forget the screaming and hollering. Finally, I grabbed the wife and husband and...As I began to pray, the Holy Ghost said, 'Ask her a question.'  When I finished praying, I turned to her and said, 'Do you have anything in this house that was given to you by a witch doctor?'  Her eyes got very big and her jaw opened. She said, 'Yes, I do. I have a vial given to me by a witch doctor in the Philippines. I have it hidden in my closet.' The husband knew nothing about it...I said, 'I think it would be a good idea if we got rid of that tonight.'  She found it. We went to the backyard and broke it, burned it and buried it.  You may have stuff lingering which the enemy has used to control you for a long time. It may be paraphernalia of some sort, such as jewelry from an ungodly relationship. Get rid of it...
Know what to do if you have been defiled.  The 1st step is to confess and expose your sin. Confession means more than admitting to wrongdoing. First off, you must expose it. If there is something you are doing which is not right, it behooves you to share it with someone–perhaps a cell leader or pastor.  That which is hidden in your life is something the enemy can use to gain control in your life. In Ephesians 5:13, Paul writes, But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. As long as it stays in darkness, it is a controlling element the enemy uses. This is why, any time I travel, I immediately tell my wife if anything happens in terms of defilement. There is nothing hidden in our relationship; it is the only way I can be protected. In order to escape from the grips of sin, you must expose it.
Secondly, repent to those you have hurt. Do not just say, 'Well, I am sorry.' Repent and make certain you deal with the person or people you have hurt.The last step in confession is to confront those who have hurt you and forgive them, according to Matthew 18:15.  1st, confess. 2nd, let the Word of God cleanse you. Allow the Word of God to examine you. Read passages like Galatians 5 and I Corinthians 6, which have lists of things we should not be doing. Grow in the Word and 'add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love' (II Pet. 1:5-7).  Thirdly, pray and be prayed for. I believe in impartation; I believe in the laying on of hands and 'the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit' (Titus 3:5). I believe the Holy Spirit will wash and cleanse your life.  Fourthly, protect yourself and those you are responsible for. If there is anything you are doing which is not right, get rid of it. If you cannot handle the Internet, get rid of it. If you have a problem with watching movies, get a friend who will rebuke you when you even raise the thought of going to see a questionable movie. Matthew 18:8, 9 says, If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you…If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. Hell is so bad, it would be better to go through life maimed than to go there. Do whatever you have to do to get rid of whatever is binding you.  The final aspect is to embarrass evil. There are times when you just have to embarrass Satan by resisting evil so fully that you fling it (that ONE drink, smoke, chocolate, high, fling, peek) from your very sight. Do not give sin a chance to have a foothold (toe hold) in your life. Expose the attempts to tempt you for what they really are, and embarrass evil.  Defilement is clearly a problem in the Church today. Many people (including pastors and/or their born-again members) do not realize their sin is defiling them. However, it is imperative for Christians to understand the severity of the issue and take the steps necessary to rid themselves of defiling agents. By yourself, this task may seem impossible, but through the cleansing blood of Jesus, anything can be accomplished."

Chapter 3 Accusing Spirits "Have you ever had a conversation with yourself...
To take captive our thoughts, we need to discourse with them...Some thoughts come in the first person (I, me, myself) making us think they are (masquerading as) our own (thoughts)...Many of our thoughts come from someone or something else, even when they are (spoken) in the first person...We need to stop every thought and examine it to know whether it is from the devil or from God; determine whether it is a truth or a lie (and reject each detrimental idea/thought/feeling)...Examining our thoughts is powerful, preventing mental illness, and banishing sin and disease from our lives.  It can keep us from being 'double minded.'  James 1:8 says, 'A double minded man is unstable in all his ways'...All humans hear or perceive voices in our minds.  For some they are much stronger than others...
All day and night, Satan sands before God accusing us.  As he does so, he plants thoughts in our minds that accuse us to ourselves, accuse others, and God...(Holy Spirit) discernment gives us an 'on and of' a traffic signal...
It provides a way to mentally sit and observe our see if it is safe to proceed...
On the highway of our Christian life, God's Word provides the rules, but our obedience is our choice." 
(DAILY we need to examine each negative thought before we allow it to continue.  Refuse and reject all thoughts that contradict
the fruit of the Holy Spirit = peace, joy, contentment, kindness, mercy, love.)

Mathias, Art - In His Own Image - We Are Wonderfully Made -  
Section 3 - God's Answer  "Our soul consists of our intellect, mind, emotions, memory, thoughts and will. 
It is in this area of our existence that we fight against Satan...
We sin, one thought, one emotion, and one iniquity at a time.  This is why II Corinthians 10:5 teaches us to cast down imaginations (thoughts and emotions)...into the obedience of Christ...
The work of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection must be appropriated in our lives EACH DAY."
Section 5 A Discussion of Treatment Options  "We Must Learn to Resist the Devil. 
James 4:7
says to 'Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.' 
If we do NOT resist the devil, he will NOT flee."

McLean, Renny - Eternity Invading Time - -
Chapter 12 Religion Conforms to Earth - "Unless God strengthens you, you can't stand in the new...Some of you should be on the platforms of the world, but the principalities of the world knocked you off...The Lord said...'If you stay in one place too long your past comes back at the door'...If you are not going forward, you are going backward, because in the realm of the Spirit there is NO time.  Past is only a name, but it knocks at your door, and instead of seeing the increase, you see the decrease...God is saying, 'Come up higher.'"
Chapter 13 Breakthrough -  "When people pitch their tent in what they know, then they stop growing and stagnate in religion, tradition and self...and eliminate the opportunity for any level of breakthrough."
"God's life flows when you are rid of hindering forces.  When opposition faces hinderance in the Glory, it will retreat...You are free to have a breakthrough when you separate from illegal environments...Satan has a plan and purpose for everyone.  There are NO exceptions.  Satan's plan comes under 2 words: environmental control...You may have left Egypt, but this does NOT mean Egypt has left you...Jesus said you cannot enter a man's house unless you bind the strong man 1st...You can break through and be free at last...Joel 2:25 KJV...(God) will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten."

Osborn, TL - The Best of Life - - Chapter 6 The Principle of Vision - "Concepts of weakness, failure or poverty are destructive and demoralizing.  They will reduce you to their level.  They are your deadliest enemies -vicious thieves of your happiness, health, success and abundance.  Resist as you would demons, the ideas that you are poor, unworthy, limited, weak or inferior.  Those ideas are lies."  Continuous Proclamation Required:
a-"I see myself in God's image, redeemed by His love, restored to Him as He created me to be.
b-I believe God is alive, at work in me.  (In the name of Jesus) I act on this and I release His power in me. 
The seed of His faith is in me.  He fulfills His dream through me.
c-(In the name of Jesus) I resist, as I would a demon, any idea that I am limited or inferior. 
(In the name of Jesus) I reject every thought or influence that discredits my vision
of the new me.  Pessimism only breeds disease, failure and misery.
d-(In the name of Jesus) I will allow  no one to program my life, categorize my value or rate my potential.
e-God, at work and alive in me, lifts me to the level of super living.  Nothing is impossible for Him in me.
f-His domain is my house.  He gives me dignity and self-esteem.
g-No creed, religion or person can control my  vision of the new me. 
I see me like He sees me with His best in me."

Oyedepo, David - Nigeria -  Satan Get Lost - excellent
Classic_collection/classic_books_author_NO_PDF_edited_filenames/Oyedepo.Dr%20David%20!Satan%20Get%20Lost.pdf  - "The devil wont' flee because you look nice and gentle, or because you don't disturb anybody. He won't flee because you are kind and have all the fruits of the Spirit. Nor will he flee because you are such a strong church member.
The mere fact that you're so involved in everything in the church is not enough reason for him to flee. That you give offering regularly will not move him either.  Satan will flee only when you resist him. It takes some force for him to bow. He is an enemy and you are engaged in a battle with him. He is not someone to be begged or cajoled. We are wrestlers.  Ephesians 6:12, says
'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.'  Have you ever seen wrestlers beg one another in the ring? Resist the devil, and he will flee! Not beg him or beg God, and he will flee. No.  It is time to take charge! Refuse to let Satan have his way. Stand against him! Show him who is the boss!  Many Christians have no form of resistance at all on their inside. Friend, it's not God or your pastor that will resist the devil for you.  You can cast out a million demons from a person and before he gets to the next bus stop he acquires another 2 million! Every evil spirit has God's permission to stay somewhere. But you can keep them off your territory.  What does the word resist mean? How can I be sure I am resisting the devil? What has enabled us in our ministry to be where we are today is just an understanding of the word ?resist?.
The devil is my eternal enemy. Every time I see him misbehaving, I am excited because I want to tear him to pieces. 
If anybody tries to hit me with a club, I say, 'Satan, get out!' I resist him immediately.
I take charge, and let the force in question know that a stronger force is around.  This is very important.
There are many Christians who allow the devil to have his way in their lives without any resistance whatsoever. Some say, 'I won't eat, because I know that if I eat I will vomit.' Such a person is putting up no resistance at all against the devil. So the devil just takes his toll on such people.  The Christians who will make it this end-time are soldiers. You cannot be a child forever. A child is no better than a slave because he remains under governors and tutors until he grows. Even though all things are his, he doesn't enjoy anything (Galatians 4:1-2)...
There is a weapon of resistance at your disposal which Jesus Himself used. He said to Satan, 'It is written.' Men who have God's Word in them, and are smart to release it from their mouth in faith, are men who will keep the devil off their shores...By the time the devil came to Jesus the 2nd time, once again Jesus said, 'It is written.' He didn't pray, neither was there anyone around with whom He could pray a prayer of agreement.  The 3rd time the devil came in his usual resilience and Jesus gave it to him again, 'It is written.' This time the devil concluded, 'There is nothing I can do with this man.'
Luke 4:13
says: 'When the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him (Jesus) for a season.'"

Peale, Norman Vincent -The True Joy of Positive Living - autobiography - Chapter 20 Health, Energy and Long Life - "One rather minor but interesting illustration of the power of positive thinking as it affects health...I would always develop a horrendous cold in February...Year after year this defeatist situation went on until one day I decided it was irrational and decided to stop it.  I realized that there was no sense in the assumption that I must have a cold in February or indeed anytime.  Accordingly I began to think positively that I need not have a cold and that I could get through the winter season and never lose my voice, as had b een the custom.  From the minute I took that firm decision, I have never had another cold, at least, never one that could inhibit activity.  Even so, you must watch negativism like a hawk.  Once...I forgot to think positively...Quickly I caught myself, turned the positive thinking back on, and have never once missed a speaking engagement due to a cold...never again been unable to use my voice."

Pierce, Chuck D. - Time to Defeat the Devil - - Chapter 16 Guard Against the Enemy's Tools -
"Doris way to detect a demon (is to notice when) something comes over you." 
Immediately pray, "Lord, I've had this familiar feeling before.  Remind me of when and how this started." 
Upon remembering, renounce those (negative) words (or memories) and decree "that any (evil) power attached to them would no longer have a right to holy me captive."  Pray "the blood of Jesus and...self."  Ask "God to fill me anew with His Holy Spirit."  "Every lie (idea that does NOT align with Scripture) we receive in our minds works like a deadening anesthetic to us.  In the Bible it is called 'a spirit of slumber' (Romans 11:8 KJV) It works by attaching to an unbelieving, mocking, blasphemous spirit, so that you can't capture the Trugh and be liberated. 
"Attempts to communicate with a dead person is opening wide a door to demonization by familial or familiar spirits...lead into delusion...death...torment...These spirits can bring great mental imbalance and vexation.  Spiritism invites the evil eye and opens the soul to satanic influence and control."

Chapter 1 The Holy Spirit's Work Within shares that praying in tongues is not only a key to relapse prevention, but is, in fact, a master key.  Praying often in tongues allows our private tutor the Holy Spirit to minister to our human spirit, to remove our old nature, to remove the enemy's nature, and to impart His nature into us.  (Actually what a wonderful thing to do in a mental hospital.  Any patient can cry or sing  aloud in holy tongues and accomplish more healing in one week than the doctors can accomplish in one year.  Praying in tongues is not like medication to be taken once a day/week/month.  Rather it is like air to be consumed continually, as often as a cup of coffee, a trip to the bathroom, a ride in the car/elevator, a walk down the hall or in the park - anywhere you can be alone with God.  The apostle Paul said he would be a fool for Christ.  The apostle Luke was a physician, but his superior was Doctor Jesus.)
Chapter 7 Praying Out the Mysteries of God's Plan encourages us to pray, "Take over, Holy Ghost (Spirit).  My soul (thoughts/emotions/mind) has been sabotaging me lately, but I don't mind spending a day (time) with You (praying in tongues)."  As we in determination, disregarding our negative feelings/thoughts, implement our daily practice
of praying out loud (or under our breath) in tongues unknown to us, "the voice of the Holy Spirit" will become "louder than the" voice of "the enemy".  In fact, by praying in tongues, we terrorize the terrorizer; this is the beginning of the end for our enemy/disease/infirmity.  If attacks come against us now, we know we have the enemy on the run.
1st John 4:4
Greater is He Who is in you than he who is in the world.
Chapter 12 Purged to Stand in the Gap gives us a heads up on the roadblocks Satan will use to derail us from praying in tongues.  Praying in tongues allows the Holy Spirit to spotlight character flaws that interfere with our maturity in God.  Like cream in milk, these personality issues will from time to time arise, as the Holy Spirit exposes them, as we are able to deal with them with God's help.  When they come to our attention, we must immediately repent and place them under the blood of Christ.  Later when the enemy comes back to accuse us we can retort that they/it is forgiven and under Christ's blood, nailed to His cross. Remember.  Never, never, never omit praying in tongues.

Roberts, Oral - When You See the Invisible, You Can do the Impossible - - Chapter 7 How I Discovered God Is a Healing God  reminds us to keep doing what we did to obtain our healing.  If we found our healing at church, then we need to continue to go to church.  If we plugged into God by prayer, then we need to continue to pray.  This is one way to keep our healing.

Chapter 2 The Power of the Holy Spirit contends that if the Christian "cries out, there is hope.  Can you chain your imagination?  No, but the power of the Holy Spirit can.  He will do it and He does do it at last...even on the earth."
"Jesus Christ exclaimed, "It is finished" (John 19:30).  This concerned Christ's own labor, but the Holy Spirit cannot say that.  The Holy Spirit still has more to do, and until the consummation of all things, when the Son Himself becomes subject to the Father, "It is finished" will not be said by the Holy Spirit.  What, then, does the Holy Spirit have to do?  First, He has to perfect us in holiness.  There are 2 kinds of perfection that a Christian needs.  One is the perfection by the justification of Jesus (salvation/forgiveness of all sins/being loved/chosen by God and adopted into His family), and the other is the perfection of sanctification (character) worked by the Holy Spirit...
(Father) God will finish the work that He has begun.  He will present my soul not only perfect in (perfected by) Christ, but also perfect in (perfected by) the (Holy) Spirit, without spot, blemish, or any such thing (Ephesians 5:27)...My poor, depraved heart is to become as holy as that of God (by the transforming miracle work/power of the Trinity)."

Sumrall, Lester - Imagination - -
Chapter 7 Spiritual Imagination - "There are degrees of imagination...You must see (visualize) yourself well...see your depression gone...You 1st see it on the inside and then one day you realize it on the outside...The devil knows this...and puts counterfeits in the human mind...Alcoholic beverage is taken in order to hallucinate...Drugs create images and mental suggestions that are not normal or bring you into a nether world, or underworld, of hideous creatures...called delirium tremens...He sees demons all around...running... piercing...poking...grinning...You resist Satan by directing your (born-again) human spirit by the Holy Spirit.  Your imagination should flow from your spirit into your mind...A spiritual battle...should be directed through your spirit...God leaves the responsibility to you, NOT to Him.  He tells YOU to cast down (wrong/self-defeating) imaginations.  He has already saved you; He has already given you the authority.  God shouts, 'You cast it down!'"
Chapter 3 The Origin of Alien Entities - "Satan cause...people to suffer the same things he suffered - to lose the favor of God, to lose the place God had provided for them, to lose their relationship with the Most High...So you must resist him...Speak TO him and say, 'Satan, you're depressed, but I'm NOT!  You're sad, but NOT I!  You have fallen from grace, but NOT I' (in Jesus' name and power)!"
Chapter 20 What Happens to a Person after the Alien Entity Is Cast Out? - "Setting people free is one thing; keeping them free is another.  It is vitally important to teach a person how to remain free once he has been liberated...lest a worse thing come." + + "The evil spirit came back to his former 'residence.'  He found it empty - NOT full of the Holy Spirit or the Word of God...To empty a person of bad things is NOT sufficient... Get that person filled with the right things...of God...When you set someone free, then
you have an obligation to that person to teach him or her the Word of God about how to remain free."

Sorting  "Renew your mind.  Subdue your emotions so that they come under My authority.  Choose to think about the truths of My Word.  In the same way that you sort dried beans before you cook and eat them, sort your thoughts, because they (the chosen ones) will become food for your spirit.  Some thoughts will be 'sickened' in the natural as they flow...into your mind as planted inspirations from My enemy.  These (fake/imposter) thoughts are actually 'pebbles' posing as 'beans.' 
Every thought that comes to you must be continually washed in living water in order to remove the debris and to disclose their true nature and character...As your thoughts are washed, the stones that are posing as beans will be clearly evidenced....
This sorting may be a  bother to you and an encumbrance upon your time...
Scientists...say that the mind receives passively - a victim...This is NOT so.  The renewed mind has the ability to differentiate between and to discern thoughts as they form.  It has the ability to then turn them away before they are absorbed into the mind's processing.  Seek this mental discipline.  Seek the anointing of your function as one who has been renewed.  Your emotions rise out of your thoughts and perceptions.  In renewing your mind, you subject your emotions to My authority...
Pray My anointing upon others, so that they too can draw near to Me...Sort out the
(enemy's) stones (stinking thinking) from the food (right thinking)."  There is both physical and spiritual food.  Jesus said that He is both bread and water.  Seek Him daily in communion, prayer and scripture reading - for beginners.  Season with PRAISE.

White, Ellen - 28. The First Great Deception...350 from "With the earliest history of man, Satan began his efforts to deceive our race. He who had incited rebellion in Heaven desired to bring the whole creation to unite with him in his warfare against the government of God. His envy and jealousy were excited as he looked upon the beautiful home prepared for the happy, holy pair, and he immediately laid his plans to cause their fall. Had he revealed himself in his real character, he would have been repulsed at once, for Adam and Eve had been warned against this dangerous foe; but he worked in the dark, concealing his purpose, that he might more effectually accomplish his object.
Employing as his medium (camouflage) the serpent, then a creature of fascinating appearance, he addressed himself to Eve, 'Hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?' [1 GEN. 3:1.] Had Eve refrained from entering into argument with the tempter, she would have been safe; but she ventured to parley with him, and fell a victim to his wiles. It is thus that many are still overcome. They doubt and argue concerning the requirements of God, and instead of obeying the divine commands, they accept human theories (contradicting holy scripture and God's holy nature), which but disguise the devices of Satan."
White, Ellen G - 7th Day Adventist - - 65 snares (esp to those belonging to Christ) @ of The Great Controversy (original title) "The followers of Christ know little of the plots which Satan and his hosts are forming against them. But He who sitteth in the heavens will overrule all these devices for the accomplishment of His deep designs. The Lord permits His people to be subjected to the fiery ordeal of temptation, not because He takes pleasure in their distress and affliction, but because this process is essential to their final victory. He could not, consistently with His own glory, shield them from temptation; for the very object of the trial is to prepare them to resist all the allurements of evil.  Satan is well aware that the weakest soul who abides in Christ is more than a match for the hosts of darkness, and that, should he reveal himself openly, he would be met and resisted. Therefore he seeks to draw away the soldiers of the cross from their strong fortification, while he lies in ambush with his forces, ready to destroy all who venture upon his ground. No man is safe for a day or an hour without prayer. Especially should we entreat the Lord for wisdom to understand His word. Satan is an expert in quoting Scripture placing his own interpretation upon passages by which he hopes to cause us to stumble. We should study the Bible with humility of heart, never losing sight of our dependence upon God. While we must constantly guard against the devices of Satan, we should pray in faith continually "Lead us not into temptation."

Wigglesworth, Smith - Cry of the Spirit - unpublished sermons collected by Roberts Liardon - Chapter 10 Overcoming - "We long for there to be nothing in us which Satan could use in overcoming us.  Remember the words of Jesus, 'The (evil) prince of this world cometh and hath no thing in Me.' John 14:30...
The sacrifice is complete, and God has kept you, because you could NOT keep yourself."

Winder, Delores with Keith, Bill - Joy Comes in the Morning - - Fellowship Foundation, Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - Chapter 4 Rise and Be Healed  "I have to caution you about something. Satan is going to try to tell you that you've not (really) been healed."  That you now are only in remission or some other lie, to defeat you, to steal your healing."  It is DANGEROUS to think that Satan, if alive, lives only "in hell."
[Both the Holy Spirit and the evil spirit are spirits "who" communicate to our human spirit (and subsequently to our mind/soul/brain via thoughts).]

Yun, Brother with Hattaway, Paul - The Heavenly Man - - Autobiography.  Authors remind readers that persistence is of the utmost importance.  We may be God's last choice to do a special work, only because those called 1st quit/failed to persevere.  Consider, if Satin is hounding you, then in all likelihood God has great plans for you.  Brother Yun believes that every Christian will encounter suffering to keep him humble and dependent on God and not on himself.  Remember, that was the will of Father God for his son Jesus Christ, Who is our tutor/mentor by the power of the Holy Spirit in our hearts and by the power of the Word of God in scripture, if we are willing to read/memorize/meditate-on/sing/believe it.

A New Door Has Opened by Doug Addison - Things Often Looks Opposite 6/13/2014 - “Keep in mind that things quite often look like the opposite just before a breakthrough…because it is crucial to understand this right now.  As God is releasing something new in your life don't be surprised if the enemy comes and tries to distract you.  A mesmerizing type of spirit is working overtime to get you to look at your problems and not solutions.  Old thoughts and behaviors may have recently surfaced and during a time we should be excited, we end up feeling discouraged.  We have to be careful that we don't come into agreement with the attack of the enemy "Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." Matthew 18:18-19 NIV

Dr. Brock - For those who are weak and weary + The weary and tired + Journaling

Copeland, Kenneth - - "I began to see that when we have a mighty victory in God, the devil doesn't just give up and go home. Oh, no. He waits around for an opportunity, and then he launches a counterattack in order to turn that victory back into defeat...Some believers make the double mistake of letting that (problem/sickness/ relapse) happen and then blaming it on God or on the ministers of God...
God's Word says healing is for us. Jesus has already paid for it. Deliverance is for us. Victory is for us. So if there's any problem, it's in our receiving, not with His providing. He's already done His part (2,000 years ago)...
One day I was asking God for more power. I was really intense about it. 'Oh God, give me more of Your power. I just need more power'...
God interrupted me and said, 'I could have filled you with an angel. But I didnt. I didn’t entrust you to an angel or any other created being. I came Myself. That’s Me on the inside of you. Now, if you’ll begin to act like that’s Me in there, you’ll realize you have all the power you need to do whatever I’ve called you to do...Youve been asking for more power when you already have the power...You’ve been depending too much on how you FEEL about it. Rise up now and walk in faith. Ill do the rest. You just act like the New Testament is 100 % true'...
I realized that it was NOT because God had taken His hand off Oral Roberts that those people had lost their healing. NO, the problem was that after they left the meeting and got out into the everyday world again, they fell back into their old thinking patterns. They let their faith down. They gave the devil an opening.  Then when the 1st symptom of that old disease came along, they said, 'Oh dear, look at that. I thought I was healed, but I guess I’m not.' They fell victim to the devil’s counterattack. They didn’t expect it, and they weren’t prepared for it. So they inadvertently allowed him to turn their victory into defeat. If we don’t look out, that can happen to any of us...
You’re going to have to make 3 quality decisions...about which there is no debate and from which there is no retreat. 
1st, you must make the Word of God the final authority in your life. I’m NOT talking about taking half of a verse of scripture and twisting it around to say what you want. I mean you make a decision to become a serious student of the Word of God and to line up your thinking with whatever it (God) says.  2nd, you must decide to live your life by faith in what God has said. The Bible says, 'Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.' Once the Word is your authority, you decide that you’re going to operate by faith in the Word of God, to act and speak and live as though that Word is true, regardless of what your physical senses may have to say about it.  3rd, you must decide to live by the love of God, because faith works by love. Without love, your faith won’t function...
Get down on your knees before Him, and as you take communion say, 'In the name of Jesus, I commit myself from this day forward to use my energy and my strength on this earth to live by the Word of God, to live by my faith, and to live by the love of God'...7.10.2010
I want to give you now the 5 basic steps to victory...
1st...go to the Word of God and find out the promises that cover your situation.  II Peter 1:4 ...
2nd, Fix your attention on God’s promise. Follow the instructions He gives us in Proverbs 4:20-22 ...
Not even the word of your doctor is the last word...
3rd, Never go to God on the basis of your need. Go to God on the basis of His provision.
Be extreme with yourself about this. Refuse to use prayer as an opportunity to rehearse your problem. Instead, use it as an opportunity to rehearse the solution God has given you through His Word.  Remember, faith NEVER says, 'I need, I need.' Faith ALWAYS says, 'I have, I have'...
4TH, Speak to the mountain. Jesus said, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith (Mark 11:23). Please note that Jesus didn't say, 'Whosoever shall speak to God about this mountain.' He said we should speak directly to the mountain the desired end result...God Himself talks that way! In Romans 4:17 it says, [He] calleth those things which be not as though they were. Please notice, however, that it does NOT say, 'He calls things that are as though they're not.' That's an important distinction.  It means that if I have sickness in my body, I won't say that the sickness doesn't exist.  I'll say that healing is mine. I'll believe I receive my healing, and I'll call myself well...
once He (Jesus) had spoken it, He considered it done...
5TH, P
raise the night. If you've never praised God in your life, then get started right now. Praise Him and praise Him and praise Him and praise Him.  Praise Him that the mountain is gone. Praise Him about how wonderful it is to be free. Praise Him that Jesus went to the cross and bought and paid for your healing (health/ deliverance/finances/family/ protection/counsel)...Praise Him for the name of Jesus.  Don't just whisper about it either. You ought to be shouting your way to work and shouting your way back home! If there's anything the devil can't stand, it's praise.  I'll tell you one thing for sure. If you've gained territory from the devil and he's coming against you to get it back, this is not the time to sit down and start whining about how things aren't working out. It's NOT the time to decide that God has somehow taken His hand off your life.  It IS the time to get into the Word and get yourself re-anchored in what God has promised about your situation. It's the time to keep that promise constantly before your eyes and in the midst of your heart.  It's NOT time to go crying to God about your needs. It's time to pray the prayer of faith and take your stand or the basis of His provision.  When Satan starts shaking your mountain, don't retreat and run for cover. Speak to that mountain with the authority you wield in the name of Jesus Christ. Then, when you're done with that, start to praise and shout the're going to represent Jesus on this earth, you're going to have to walk in faith. Not just any of kind of faith either. His kind of faith...You won't have to be afraid of the devil's counterattacks anymore.  He will be afraid of yours."

Napoleon was one of the so called 'Enlightened Monarchs.'   Napoleon suffered from syphilis and probably died due to consumption of arsenic which was used for treatment for syphilis during that time. Sexually transmitted diseases are rampant today and they all carry a physical penalty...If you keep doing something that gives rights to demons...Doors that were openings for demon powers to bring sickness and other areas of darkness must be closed.  Submission is a choice and only you can make it. A deliverance minister can’t make it for you; your spouse or parents can’t do it for you; it is a conscious choice that only you can make...Even after confession, some want to 'feel' guilty because of their sin. Forgiveness is what God does and it is based upon our confession, not what we feel like. Feel forgiven because you are forgiven! Receiving God’s forgiveness is a done deal. Don’t keep bringing up your past that is forgiven, that has been cleansed. It gives advantage to demons...So far as the east is from the west He has removed our sin from us. If He forgets it, you forget it. Condemnation is not God’s way. Forgiven? Forget it."
Dickerman, Don - Defining, Defiling, Defending the Temple - - 1/2012 newsletter
The mind is the battlefield. The mind and the (physical) brain are separate...
Like rats are attracted to garbage, when our life has un-confessed sin, unbroken curses or un-forgiveness, the demons come (often as negative self-sabotaging thoughts) and they defile the temple (church/house/flesh/mind/body/emotions/feelings).  They must be 'driven' out (of God's synagogue/born-again person). They cannot be medicated out, nor counseled out. Neither (seldom) can they be removed by you 'willing' (or praying) them to be gone (via God's/angel's intervention). All Christian activity is helpful in keeping the demons somewhat 'in check' (bound/impotent/silent), but to be rid of them (infecting/infesting), they must be 'cast out' (evicted/exorcised/rejected). They must be driven out in the Name of Jesus Christ! Jesus said
, 'In my name CAST out devils.'   Can the temple be defiled? Absolutely! Just as Jesus saw the Holy Temple of God (Jewish synagogue) defiled, He sees ours defiled by things we (and/or our family blood relatives/ancestors) have permitted in our lives.  Now the lie we have believed is that once we have confessed our sin, the demons (attached to our sins) leave (is) not necessarily so. Repentance and confession of sin cancels the penalty of sin, but have the demons been commanded to leave? (Sometimes/often) the 'permission' (legal right) of the demon spirit to be there has been cancelled, but I have found they often do not leave until they are commanded to do so (via an audible whisper/ rejection)....
(Invisible) evil spirits, generally, do not leave until they are (gently but firmly) commanded to leave. Repentance (of any failure to confront/reject the problem and/or repentance of personal/family sin) cancels their permission to be there, but they leave when they are commanded to leave (in Jesus' name). Jesus drove out those who defiled the Temple with great authority. He has given us (His own) authority (deputizing) over all the power of the enemy.  Keeping the Temple cleansed is keeping doorways closed that allow them entrance. Read carefully this statement, 'The presence of the Holy Spirit (being confirmed and/or saved) does not keep demon spirits out' (from oppressing Christians or possessing non-Christians.  In part, it is our 'daily' spiritual job to reject/filter out evil/negative thoughts.)'"  (One need NOT speak to demons.  Rather, one can speak TO problems, which are the names of demons.  For instance, one can speak TO depression.  Depression, in Jesus' name, leave.  We thank and praise You Lord.  Amen.)

ome simple, scriptural, spiritual methods to remain demon-free."
1 - Confess sin immediately. Memorize 1 John 1:9
2 - When negative thoughts come...rebuke them and replace them with positive thoughts.
3 - Premeditated sin will invite demons. Keep your plans Holy
4 - Dismiss immediately painful memories of your past and live in anticipation of life without bondage.
5 -
Never forget that Satan and all of his demons are liars. Learn to recognize the lie!
6 -
Demons...try to convince you that what took place in your deliverance was only emotional and that you are still in the enemies grip.  'Therefore submit to God Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.'
7 - Use the Name of Jesus, the Blood of the Lamb and your confession of faith
(in Jesus Messiah) against all Satan's temptations and condemnation.
Dickerman, Don - May and June 2013 Newsletters - TRANSCRIPT -  I led the congregation thrugh a public prayer, confessing Jesus was Lord.  We confessed un-forgiveness, anger, bitterness etc. We denounced generational sin and renounced unholy oaths, vows, pledges, ceremonies, unholy soul-ties and confessed them as sin. I then explained that I was going to BIND evils spirits and command them to go.  As I did that, the 9-year old boy began to "screech", almost like the sound of a wild bird scared for his life. He slid from his 2nd row seat out and under the front row. His father picked him up and took him to a small room adjacent to the platform... As members of our ministry team prayed with others, I went to where the little boy was.   He was still screaming and somewhat out of control.  I prayed for him; I commanded demons to leave him, but he resisted, twisted and turned.  He didn’t want anyone touching him. He kept saying "No, leave me alone."  He was on his hands and knees facing the wall. He resisted for almost an hour; no one held him or restrained him. (This is never acceptable). You don’t take the demonic kingdom by (physical) force, but by love and thru the Name of Jesus. It is never a (human) power encounter. I talked to him; I think we became friends; the screaming stopped. His father knelt beside him and confessed that he may have been the doorwa'y for demons, because he had disciplined too hard a few years ago, wept, asked God to forgive him, laid his hand on his sons back and asked for forgiveness. His father told me that his son changed after the traumatic time of discipline, that he had become very uncontrollable.  I continued and asked Eric to say (TO the spiritual tormentors), "Leave me alone in the Name of Jesus." He shook his head, "No, I won’t say it." As we talked I asked him why he wouldn’t say that. He quickly went to my sermon (regarding quantum physics).  He’s a little genius, he said, "Can a proton really be 2 places at the same time?" I said, "I don’t know, Eric, (not real name), I read that somewhere."  He asked, "Do you know about quantum physics?"  I told him I barely knew what it was that he might know more about it than me. He said, "Can you prove to me that this (deliverance ministry) will work?" I told him that I had never known it not to.  He was becoming much calmer, but he would not say the name Jesus. He refused. I asked him if he was afraid to say it; he gave a little nod. He could "see" the demon in his mind.  He described it as a creature that lived in the very deep part of the sea. He said it was ugly and had little tentacles that came out from it’s body. I told him that I knew it was a leviathan spirit and would not hurt him. I said, "I have encountered that kind of spirit many times." I told him that he (the evil spirit) would not hurt him and was afraid of the Name of Jesus. He (Eric) gave another little nod.  Still he (Eric) would not say it. He said, "If I was in the 5th dimension I could do this."  I agreed with him and told him that Jesus could do it now." Eric said, "I feel like, if I say it, my heart will explode and go into a million pieces and out into space." He said his heart was jumping up and down like it was on a trampoline. The demon spirit was instilling as much fear as possible, but it was (really) the demon who was scared. Eric continued to change the subject; he said, "I can’t see my watch in here; it’s too dark."  Then, he said, "Is it true that darkness doesn’t exist, that it is just the absence of light?" (I had mentioned that in my message).  We talked about the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks; we talked and his dad stood near him and wept; his mom was outside of the small hallway type room...I said, "Eric you are very smart guy; can you just tell me why you can’t say ‘leave me in the Name of Jesus. Why do you suppose you can’t say that?" He pondered and said, "We’ll wait it out."   He (Eric) began to rub his hands in rapid fashion and said, "I think I can burn it out." Then he said, "No that’s not going to work. We’ll just wait it out." We continued to talk. I said, "Eric do you know Who Jesus is?" He was silent. I said, "Do you know Who God is?" "Yes, I have a Bible. I know who He is."  I continued to appeal to his reason, "You still haven’t told me why you think it is so difficult for you to say that." His dad said, "Son, you are so close; can you just say those words?"  His little heart was pounding, this (evil) spirit had a deep hold on his life and did not want to leave. I said, "Eric, you’ll sure make your mom and dad happy.  You will also be happy."   After a minute or so, I asked him if he wanted me to hold his hand while he said it.  He paused and said, "Maybe if I hold hands with my mom and dad, I can say it." His mom came into the room; she had been listening; she took Eric’s right hand and his dad was holding his left hand. Eric had his head bowed. I said, "Eric, just say what I say."  I repeated, "Leave me alone in the Name of Jesus." He got the 1st part out easily, but began to struggle; his voice sounded like he was being choked; he got thru "Name" but could hardly say "Jesus." He got it out and said, "I am feeling like jello on the inside." He breathed out several deep sighs and was no longer trembling.  He (Eric) said, "I think I’m going to throw up." I told him he could if he needed to, He said, "I think it’s ok. I don’t need to."  After the service...Eric came by and gave me a "high 5." But that was not the end.
On Tuesday we received the following e-mail in our office.  (READ next months June newsletter.)

Dotson, Emily - - recommended - Use God's Word As Your Healing Foundation, Or You Will Take On Deception -
"Most people when they are in need of healing they do not look to God or His Word. Instead they look to anointed ministers to lay hands on them to receive their healing...
God is not pleased with us when we doubt the credibility of His Word, by not trusting Him enough to stand on His Word and run the devil off. Because, God has given us His Word that the gates of hell shall not prevail against us, that is, if we are His Church, according to Jesus’ own Words; (Mat. 16:18). So we must exercise our faith, and use the authority
of God’s Word that Jesus gave us to use on the enemy. By Luke 10:19 Jesus gave us the power. But power must be enforced on the outlaw devil.  Unless you fully know your authority you will not enforce God’s Word on the devil. You then will be deceived" (into believing the lying symptoms, the lies of the enemy).

Greening, Angela - - Asleep and Awakened by Angela Greenig - "I saw what looked like a Golden Star, shooting at the speed of a comet. As it approached earth's atmosphere I realized that it wasn't a comet at all, but an angel of the Lord, as he landed on earth on one knee with his head bowed.  As I approached him, I saw what looked like a pipe in his hand was actually his scepter and, once it touched the ground, it grew and glowed!! It emitted the most incredible golden light with gems that started to ignite and transmit shafts of light. It wasn't just a pipe, but a scepter, as he came with great authority. I asked him, 'Why are you here, and what's your name?'  He said, 'My name is Storm. I'm from the past, but I come with a message.'  The message became like a movie. I could see, as far as the eye could see, many, many, lost and broken people, hurting, wounded and barely making it (many were those in ministry).  I was so overwhelmed by what looked like a massacre that had come through, but it was from an onslaught of the enemy. I started to pray and cry out to the Lord. When I opened my eyes there was a different angel who was before me. I asked him, 'What is your name?' and He said, 'I'm called Future,' and when his scepter hit the ground I saw underground caverns of silver, and rivers of liquid gold. Gems were everywhere. There was a treasure chest filled with pearls, gems, and golden goblets embellished like I've never seen before. The angel, Future, said, 'I'm here to help navigate The Father's people.'  Believe that I am removing the veil of heaviness and despair and I'm releasing, says the Lord, rivers of life to the multitudes, and multiplication will take place just like for the widow, or the boy with the bread and fish. You will see obstacles removed, and roadblocks that have hindered my people will be no more. Tell them, I am calling you.  As He called Lazarus, He is calling us to come out of our death or grave clothes.  This vision is so, so amazing because I understand what He's saying. Listen, the Angel, Storm, always removes the dead debris out and off of us, like a tree being pruned.  Many have gone thru difficult storms, divested by the ravages of life.  I see the Angel, Future, wanting us to know that there is provision in the vision.  He has called us, each one of us, that we are so beautiful, like a gem, unto the King. Some of you may need to just take off those garments of the past that have made you feel like you are invisible, worthless, or never good enough. God the loving Father is calling all of His sons and daughters to come out of the death clothes, and to come out and live.  Father, may your unspeakable joy overflow us each and every day. Thank you that whatever storm we may have had, or are still going through, that we are not alone."


Hagin, Kenneth E (senior)  11/2008  Word of Faith magazine Resisting the Devil excellent editorial from book How to Keep Your Healing - -

Praise is a shortcut to healing - Confession to prevent relapse and to retain/keep/maintain health/disease-remission/deliverance:  "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I exercise (take/announce/claim) authority over this body (and mind/soul) of mine.  Sickness and disease (deformities/birth defects/insanity/curses/torments/nightmares/ injuries/symptoms), I refuse to allow you to stay.  This body, this house, (this brain) belongs to God.  It is a temple of God, (of Jesus my Messiah, and of His Holy Spirit)  (According to 1st Peter 2:24 - Who His own self bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness, by Whose stripes we WERE healed.)  Satan, you have no (legal) right to trespass on God's property.  Now get out.  Leave my body.  I've authority over you.  I know it, you know it, and God knows it.  I am holding fast to what I have, and I am keeping my healing (obtained by God's Son 2,000 years ago and given to me as a free gift when I repented of all my sins and asked Him to be my Savior)."  James 4:7 demands that we resist the devil so that he will flee.  Never pat or appease such an enemy.  Rather, keep confessing health.  Stay in the enemy's face, until he backs off.  Be polite but confrontational to the enemy.  Always back up your demands with Scripture.  Our defense is never based on who we are, but rather Who He is and has ALREADY accomplished.  That is why Gentiles (non believers in Jesus as Messiah) can receive healing.  In the name of Jesus, we can take spiritual authority on our own behalf or on the behalf of anyone living in our home or working in our business or attending our service, on our property, over which we have covered with the blood of Jesus.  Refuse to quit; never concede to ill health (unless God Himself has personally told you otherwise, as part of His permissive will, never His perfect will, unless He has selected a martyr for some rare special purpose).
Hagin, Kenneth E (senior)  1/2009  Word of Faith magazine Stand Your Ground editorial from book What to Do when Faith Seems Weak and Victory Lost  K E Hagin shares how after his dad took off, his mom would continually have episodes of psychiatric instability, until she took the advise of her MD to resist and refuse the attacks.  Her doctor said, "When it comes to nerves you can do more for yourself than anyone else can and more than any medication can do for you.  The main thing to do is this: Talk to yourself.  The Bible says in Ephesians 6:13-14, 'Having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore.' 
When you feel these attacks coming on, say to yourself, 'No, I am not going to have an attack'...For more than 50 years thereafter she never had any mental problems ('spells' where she would want to kill herself) whatsoever."

Hall, Franklin - -
It is necessary to be grounded on the Word of God and believe the Word of God to retain our healing. Others could have faith for our deliverance, but we might lose the healing if we did not also have our faith properly grounded in the Word.
This explains why some healings do not last after we are healed.  We could get our faith more on the person delivering us, than on Christ. We would be healed, but if our faith was not definitely established in the WORD OF GOD, there would be a possibility of the return of the ailment. We must have Faith in God. A powerful Scripture for you to stand on and go about your duties throughout the day is one pertaining to sick people. (Mark 16:18, The Sick!)
'They shall recover'... Now say it this way, 'I SHALL RECOVER...NOW IN JESUS’ NAME.
NOW is also the day of (Healing) Salvation'...
At the present time one can see very little difference between a Christian and a Sinner in so far as sickness of the body is concerned. Both become sick with the same kind of diseases, both come under the Devil’s works of the above-mentioned negative things called the curses of the law and which are catalogued in the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy.
A saint may be healed by Jesus from arthritis or cancer only to either pick it up again at a future time or take another sickness just as great. This does not indicate that the Lord’s healing for us was no good.
'Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us' Gal. 3:13.
Jesus paid a full cash price for the whole man. If Jesus did not redeem the whole man, including his physical body and his material welfare, then Christ did not redeem any part of a man."

Your Words Bring Deliverance - "For years I cast out devils using just the authority of Jesus' name.  I would just take authority and keep on and on and on until I broke their power...I would just boldly say, 'NO, devil, you can't have this person.  You come out, in Jesus' name'...
The word of the Lord came unto me saying, 'Now, son, you can save yourself a lot of work and a lot of authority speaking, if you'll get the person that you're praying with to say by faith, "In Jesus' name, I am free"'...You have a right, according to Romans 4:17, to call those things that be not as though they were.  So even while they are still messed up, they can call themselves free.  They can (and must) say, 'Thank God I am free.  Thank You Jesus for setting me free'...(Contradict/forbid/stop their counterproductive speech and mentor/insist/demand in love that they)...
Say, 'Thank You Jesus.  I'm free...Thank You Jesus.  I'm free'...
Get them to confess it about 4 or 5 times or maybe 10 or 12 times...
The Holy Spirit will start working to set them free." 
Resist the Devil land He Will Flee - "Any devil that you have fooled around with will come back again" (to check if you have left any spiritual doors open). 
The Lord said to Lester (Sumrall), " 'Now, you made those demons leave her (
Clarita Villanueva) for the 12th time, and this is your 12th trip over hereNow those demons are standing over on the other side of the fence, because you (pastor Sumrall) have cast them out and made them leave; but as soon as you (Lester Sumrall) leave the property,
(the demons) will come right back and jump on top of her (the oppressed person) again and try to mess her upNow, you want her to stay free, don't you Well, tell her I said to resist them herself Tell her to say, "I resist you in Jesus' name  Go from me...You can't have meI don't want you (demons)!'"

Hernandez, David - - (edited)
SID: Hello. Sid Roth here...David Hernandez...your family was sabotaged generations ago with the occult.  How did they get free?
DAVID: Well my grandparents got free when they were filled with the Holy Spirit.
DAVID: I’ve walked with Jesus, but I feel as though I’m missing something. I’m looking back now. The Lord had withdrawn not because of anything that I had done; when I say He withdrew, He didn’t do so literally, He did so in relation to my emotions. I learned that when God seemingly withdraws (like He did when Jesus was on the cross and "felt" abandoned), He’s not doing it to push you away. He’s doing it to draw you closer.
DAVID: The scripture talks about how demons return (and like a pet or neighborhood critter, trying to sneak in via any open door or window). So in my family those things (demonic attractions/disease/mindsets) tried to come back in, even all the way down to me (so we in every generation need to be advised of Satan's persistence and of God's methods and weapons to defend our territory and family).  On the other flip side of that, is when my (our) family is filled with the Holy Spirit. As is true of any believer, we experience the (holy) supernatural (blessings) in our lives.

Holliday, Pat - - "Most believers have adopted the false idea that if they ignore Satan, he will ignore them.
Scripturally, such a position is indefensible. ( l Peter 5: 8, 9; James 4:7; II Corinthians 2:11)."

This is the other side that people need to tell you; you can have fun. You just make the right choices. But there's been such a spirit of witchcraft released on this earth, and people got bored with it, so now a spirit of death is being released. Vampirism represents death. A spirit of death comes with that. They LOOSE a seducing spirit with that, so people will be captivated by those stories and stuff. Honestly, it's the enemy just trying to get a hold of you. God wants you to know, because in the last days, when there's copycat signs and wonders done, they're seeding you for that now, because they'll be saying: 'There's good witchcraft and bad witchcraft.' That's what those movies say; is that right? There is only witchcraft and it's not good. But when you go and watch that stuff, seeds get planted in you. Your spirit picks up stuff when you go to see that stuff. He's planting seeds (soul deposits) so that when the day comes...some people will be actually portraying in these last days, that the devil is really not bad...(that) there's good witchcraft. He (Satan) will actually have his people (citizens) healing people, teaching you how to levitate, doing all of these fantastic things.  People will run after it, because they've seen all of these (propeganda) movies. Good witchcraft/bad witchcraft. 'We're the good witches.  We do the good stuff.' There is no good witchcraft."

Alive_Again,Dec 29, 2012 - "It (x rated media) is bad. If you've got it, throw it out. If people are watching it,
and you don't have the authority to get rid of it, then go lay hands on it, and nullify
the power of the enemy to use it
...You are going to learn how to release the anointing that actually will affect the power of the enemy in your life, in places that you drive by, places that you go; you have power over all the power of the enemy. The anointing is what came out of Christ when He stood up in Hell on that 3rd day, He stood up and let the glory of God leave Him.  The anointing is what marred and scarred the principalities and powers in Hell.  They'll never forget that day (they were torched/melted).  They (principalities/powers/demons) don't want you to know that you have the same thing on the inside of you, because then it will be Christ duplicated by the millions. When that starts getting released in the earth, it is going to do something. It is going to be part of
Joel 2.  So we are going to be doing some things that have never gotten done before
(especially in quantity/degree by nobodies including children)."

"Jessie Penn-Lewis in collaboration of the Welsh revivalist, Evan Roberts stated the following: 'Un-fallen man in his pure state was not (likely) perfect in knowledge. (Apparently) Eve was ignorant of “good and evil” (or consequences &/or deceptions of evil) (Genesis 3:5), and her ignorance (or rejection of evil for the lure of deceit) was a condition that contributed to her deception by the Serpent, who was Satan in disguise.'13 Until this day Satan has used the same method and strategy to get Christians to sin against the Most High God, by his reasoning luring them into disobedience through a lack of knowledge and ignorance into deception and eventually to fall." (Reasoning seldom allows for emotional responses, spiritual consequences or unknown variables.)  (Father God, in Jesus' name we enlist the help of Your Holy Spirit to give us good counsel, 24/7.  Thank You.  Amen.)
Chapter 2 - #
A person can be born again and nevertheless have a (evil) 'sleeping/slumbering spirit' thus incapable of hearing the voice of God (Isaiah 52:1-2).  Whenever a person has a slumbering spirit, he looses the (praise) garment of Jesus Christ and walks about in the shame of the flesh...
Inner vows
47 can develop due to emotional neglect or abuse. It is primarily from a position of self-defense; but the problem is, this self-defense causes barriers that shut a person off from fulfilling relationships...
Soul wounds can also afflict a person’s spirit by 'caging him'. Such believers feel isolated and may have a lot of inner rage masked behind a content face. In most cases does a, spirit of unforgiving, block the freedom of the wounded person."
Chapter 2 - # A SPIRIT of HEAVINESS ENHANCING PASSIVITY - "The Holy Spirit is working together with the angels of God to destroy the enemy’s 1st line of defense. From the day of the Christian’s salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ attacked, overpowered, and stripped away Satan’s armor (and/or our own mental/spiritual house/structure/cage/prison), which consists of our thoughts, attitudes, and opinions which are in agreement with evil. As the believers yield in increasing degrees of surrender to Christ, to build a house for them of righteousness by repentance, humility, and possessing a clean heart, Satan will flee from us. This process of deliverance involves a season of inner conflict and turmoil."
Chapter 2 -
#3.1.2 THE 2ND LINE of ASSAULT, the LYING SPIRIT - "The lying spirit steals the war mode in the believer’s heart, his prayer life, his anointing, his calling, and ministry.  They steal God’s plan for his life, his spiritual authority, his perseverance in all areas of his life and they try to steal the believers loved-ones, his children and his finances. It renders you defenseless...We cannot alter the past, however we can put our past upon God’s 'altar/viaticum' as an ‘act of worship’ to Him."
Chapter 2 - #
When man gives (relinquishes) his glorious gift, of reigning over sin, over to Satan, a structure of oppression starts to form in the life of such a person... Whenever the Word of God is not elevated as a (bottom-line) standard against evil, the person is passive and defenseless with no fight against Satan’s assault, people fall into the bondage...(This condition) refers not only to the (spiritual) structure in a human that can generate different degrees of oppression or possession, but also refers to the social structures of bigger areas, such as cities and even nations.55...
(Others can stand in the gap.) 
Prayer warriors can break the bondage of a passive spirit with the authority of Jesus Christ and the anointing of God’s Holy Spirit, when they don’t tolerate passivity, when they war against it, conquer it, and goes into battle for their loved ones...(Sometimes) sin reigns in a person’s life and a curse exists over such a person."
Chapter 2 - #
4.1 ELEMENTS INVOLVED in SUPREME SPIRITUAL WARFARE - "90 % of the church is defeated by passivity...Everyone whose name is written in the book of life...are not yet saved; they need to be set free! This change first has to come in the spiritual dimension. God’s truth is not discovered primarily with the human brain, but with the human heart as revealed by His Holy Spirit."
Chapter 2 - #
4.1.3 TACTICS - "Tactics refer to low-level plans formulated by lower-ranking officers to implement and carry out the strategies implemented by the generals. 
Satan’s chief tactic is deception,65 lies and deceiving people by his shows of power.66
Discernment is 1 of the 9 supernatural gifts of God’s Holy Spirit = To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues. I Corinthians 12:10."
Chapter 2 - # COMMON SYMPTOMS of INDWELLING DEMONS - "Some of the most common symptoms of indwelling demons are as follows:68 (Hammond, Frank and Ida Mae (1992) Pigs in the Parlor pp. 44-45)
1.Emotional problems: Disturbances in emotions which persist/recur, such as hatred, anger, fear, rejection, self-pity, jealousy, depression, worry, inferiority.
2.Mental problems: Mental torment, confusion, doubt, loss of memory.
3.Speech problems: Outbursts of uncontrolled tongue.
4.Sex problems: Recurring unclean thoughts and acts.
5.Addiction problems: Nicotine, alcohol, drugs, medicine.
6.Physical infirmities: Many diseases and physical affliction are due to spirits of infirmities (Luke 13:11).
7.Religious error can open the door for demons: False Religions, Christian cults,8.Occult and False Doctrines."
Chapter 2 - # - DISCOVER the DESIGNS of DARKNESS in a PERSON’S LIFE - "Just as there is a Kingdom of God in heavenly places, there is also a kingdom of Satan with places and regions of darkness, which can be called infernal places Satan’s designs originate from these infernal places."
Chapter 2 - # OPEN DOORWAYS HOW DEMONS ENTER - "Knowing how demons enter is a major key to their eviction. A demon can only enter a person of it has rights to do so.  Removing theses rights is foundational to effective and long-lasting deliverance." 6 types of doorways for demonic entry: 1.Inherited Curses: Some demons come down the family line. Examples are demons of fear, rejection, rebellion, anger, rage, shame, sexual perversion, control, abandonment. Demons can only enter on legal ground into a bloodline from the sins of the fathers.
2.Sin of the Flesh: anger, fear, greed, envy, rebellion, pride, lust, gluttony, gossip, strife, bitterness, self-righteousness, judging, unforgiveness.
3.Illness: Physical trauma such as illness and accidents.
4.Emotional trauma:
Traumatic emotional and physical experiences, such as rape, violence, divorce, abuse.
5.Passive State of Mind including trance:
Passivity of the mind, trances, yoga, drugs, heavy metal music.
6.Occult Involvement: lust for power through knowledge and control (witchcraft).
hapter 2 - # REQUIREMENTS for SPIRITUAL WARFARE - "Prior to entering into warfare the soldier must dedicate his physical temple to the Lord because the 1st category of soldiers God says will have trouble fighting will be those who have built a new house and 'have not dedicated it.' 
2nd category includes those who do not cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in their lives.
The enemy will certainly move into that fruitless life and devour it.
Chapter 3 - #
3.1 CONFLICT BETWEEN LIGHT and DARKNESS - (After one is born-again and filled with God's Holy Spirit,) "why doesn’t the darkness (the structures of sin, iniquity/evil) around a believer not disappear immediately? 
This happens because the light of Jesus Christ can be veiled in a believer heart and mind in some cases, such as:
1.Where veils were built into the mind (mental structures) or the heart (emotional bondage) of a person by the wrongdoings of the iniquity/evil of other people.
2.Where mental structures was formed through wrong habits or upbringing.  In such cases, a solid shell could surround the light and the soul of a person should be transformed by a growth process called sanctification.
Deception can play a very great part in backsliding."
"Satan’s objective is to make us discouraged."

McGee, Vernon (deceased) -

One thing is obvious: Satan does not want to be identified. Ignorance of his motives and his movements is his chief weapon today.  He moves with all subtlety, which is the thing that characterizes him."

Morgan, Kirby - - THE ENEMY’S VOICE  excerpt - recommended
The Voice Itself

1. A thought just pops into your head, but the thought didn’t come through your spirit.
2. Most of the time throughout the day, the Enemy’s voice will sound exactly like your own inner voice: plain, flat, ordinary.
3. Sometimes the Enemy’s voice is pushy, driving, insistent, impulsive. “It is an emergency. You must do it right now or _.”
The Content
1. Words from Enemy usually contain some elements of truth.  Examples: Satan quoted scriptures when he tempted Jesus.
(Matthew 4:6) A servant girl said Paul and Silas were servants of God. (Acts 16:17)
2. Words from the Enemy are usually negativeUsually critical of yourself or someone else
Promote separation among Christians.
3. Sometimes the Enemy’s words are what you want to hear.  They promote pride.  Aim is to please you, not your spirit. 
They promote rebellion.  They encourage you to do your own thing.
4. Sometimes the Enemy’s words sound positive. They sound like something Jesus would say.
But they are out of season.  It is the wrong time for it.
How You Feel
1. Uneasy
2. The Enemy’s words cause fear and confusion.  Questions, questions, questions.
3. You feel guilty, discouraged, burdened down, weary, or stuck.
4. Sometimes his words make you feel prideful.  You feel better than others, critical, stubborn, alone, angry, or argumentative.  You develop a “I am right and you are wrong” type attitude.
1. No joy or peace.
2. Resists testing.  Example: Refusal to submit directional words to your own pastor for confirmation.
3. Sometimes there is some temporary or superficial fruit. 
Example: A witch doctor brings healing in one area while the person still has major bondages in other areas.
Use your mind & these lists of criteria to judge what you heard.
For example, “Was the voice I heard at peace? Did it line up with the Bible?
Was it edifying?”  If the words were really from Jesus, then they will meet all of these criteria.
But that is NOT enough. If you only use your mind to decide if it was Jesus, then you will never be 100% positive who was speaking.  Jesus speaks to your spirit. So in a sense your mind needs to check with your spirit to see if it was Jesus.
Your spirit must also bear witness that it was Jesus.  Sometimes you will just know, that you know, that you know, that Jesus spoke to you.  That is simply another way of saying, “It wasn’t just in my mind. My spirit knows it was Jesus.”
But it isn’t always that obvious. Sometimes Jesus will actually talk to a person, but they still aren’t at all sure whether it was really Jesus, because they believe lies like: “I am not worthy.” Or, “Jesus, wouldn’t really talk to me.”
Even if the words Jesus said get confirmed by several other people, they still wouldn’t be sure that it was really Jesus.
The solution is for them to use tool 11 to get rid of their lies. Or to go back to the navigation bar, and click on, “Get Your Heart Healed”.  Some people worry, “What if I make a mistake? What if I claim I heard Jesus, when it really wasn’t Jesus?”
Well, don’t worry about hearing the enemy. He would like you to worry about that a lot.
Then you won’t even try to h
ear Jesus for fear of making a mistake. Don’t side with the enemy on this issue. Go for it.
Keep in mind that the enemy has probably been telling you negative things throughout your normal day anyway.
And you have probably just been assuming it is your own thoughts and feelings.
So spending time like this, asking Jesus questions and listening for His voice, is going to be a tremendous help,
because it will help you learn to recognize the different voices.
Then you will be able to stop all that negative junk the enemy has been telling you throughout the day.

Andy Naselli - Diabolical Ventriloquism: A 1-Sentence Summary of Each of Screwtape’s Letters-
"In The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis masterfully 'teaches in reverse' by wryly using demonic points of view to enforce a biblical one.
He calls it 'diabolical ventriloquism.'
Here (in article) is a one-sentence summary of each of Screw-tape’s 31 letters that advise Wormwood how to tempt his 'patient' (who becomes a Christian between letters 1 and 2)"
From my review of C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters: First Ever Full-cast Dramatization of the Diabolical Classic (produced by Focus on the Family Radio Theatre). Themelios 34 (2009): 454–55 is NO.  "Any form of negative rumination—for example, worrying about your financial future or health—will stimulate the release of destructive neuro-chemicals. Rhe same holds true for children: the more negative thoughts they have, the more likely they are to experience emotional turmoil.[4] But if you teach them to think positively, you can turn their lives around.[5]  Negative thinking is also self perpetuating.  The more you engage in negative dialogue—at home or at work—the more difficult it becomes to stop.[6] But negative words, spoken with anger, do even more damage. They send alarm messages through the brain, interfering with the decision making centers in the frontal lobe, and this increases a person’s propensity to act irrationally.  Fear-provoking words—like poverty, illness, and death—also stimulate the brain in negative ways. Even if these fearful thoughts are not real, other parts of your brain (like the thalamus and amygdala) react to negative fantasies as though they were actual threats occurring in the outside world."  (Daily thanks, praise, worship, hymns, praying in tongues, walking, singing, reading scripture out loud, is a yes to the brain, mind, body and human spirit.)

Perry Stone - - chapter 1 - Chapter 14 Tapping into the Spirit World - Perry mistakenly assumed the personal demonic apparitions and mental/ emotional oppression was his thorn in the flesh!  Perry later realized this was a seasonal testing allowed, which needed to be resisted and refuted, in Jesus' name.  "The enemy will gain the advantage of us, if we remain ignorant of his device and strategies (2 Corinthians 2:11)...The Holy Spirit spoke to my (born-again human) spirit, saying, 'Son, as long as you live, Satan will use what you see, (feel) and what you hear against youIt is time that you stand on the only thing that can never be shaken or changed; stand upon My Word'...Smith Wigglesworth...once said, 'I am not moved by what I see. 
I am not moved by what I feel.  I am moved by what I believe." - recommended for women who were raped -
In Deuteronomy 33:27, it says that You will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy.” 
Father (G-d), I now ask that you anoint me from head to foot with Your anointing, with Your power, and with Your authority to take these demons head on. You have already told us in Your word that 'in my name they will cast out demons,' (
Mark 16:15) and that You gave the early apostles the “power over unclean spirits” and that “they cast out many demons.” (Mark 6:7)  Father, not by my might, but by Your Holy Spirit I will engage with and defeat these demons once and for all!
Father, Your Word tells me that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Your Word tells me that I have been given “the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt me” (
Luke 10:19) and that “Through You we will push down our enemies, through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us.” (Psalm 44:5)  Father, now is the time! Now is the time to drive this enemy out of my life once and for all!
Father, Your Word tells me that the Sword of the Holy Spirit is Your Word. Father, in Jesus name, let your Word be my Sword! Father, I repeat, let Your Word be my Sword!

Father, I have full faith and belief that You have now driven all of these demons out of my body, soul, house and life for good by the power of Your Holy Spirit.
Father, I now ask that You protect both me and my family from this moment on,
and that You never allow these demons to come back on us ever again.
Father, to You be all of the glory, praise, honor that is only due to You.

Father, guide me by Your Holy Spirit into the direction and path that You will want me to take in this life.
My life is no longer my own. I now belong to You, and You alone.
Thank You Father.  Thank You Jesus.  Thank You Holy Spirit.”

Wigglesworth, Smith -
"One time when Smith was waiting at a bus-stop, a woman was having trouble getting her small dog, which had followed her, to go home. First she tried sweet-talking it, and asking it to please go home. But after awhile of trying this to no avail, the woman suddenly stamped her foot and said severely: 'Go home at once!' The dog immediately took off home, with it's tail between it's legs. 'That's how you have to treat the devil', said Wigglesworth, loudly enough for all those waiting at the bus-stop to hear. And this was his attitude toward the devil, every moment of every waking day."

Brown-Yoder, Dr Rebecca - He Came to Set the Captives Free  - - A tormented person may be rescued by asking God to remove all his ability to perceive the spirit world plus to ask Him to sever between his soul and his spirit.   Hebrews 4:12 NIV The word of God is quick, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit.  [Basically this pertains in large part to the occult activity of the unregenerate soul/spirit prior to salvation, where one is divorcing/severing past demonic ties to Satan's kingdom (as one becomes aware of them).  We can cancel all evil assignments and render them null and void, in Jesus' name, plus replace them with holy designs.  We can evict all curses and replace with blessings, in Jesus' name.]
Yoder tutors us to rebuke/resist our tormenting thoughts/voices and speak out loud (or under our breath), "Satan and you demons, 'I rebuke you in the name of Jesus.  I will not accept these thoughts/voices.'" 
Then continue to quote/read a relevant scripture out loud (or under your breath).
In addition, it is vital to memorize/recite out loud a verse or more each week.
One can use Dr Brown-Yoder's prayers/recommendations without adhering to her/Nee's hypothesis/theory as to the use/role of the human spirit in paranormal activity.

Line up with the Word of God.  Do NOT believe the lie of Satan that you have committed the unpardonable sin. 
Satan does not come looking like a demon.  Do not believe the lie that he has power over our family, minds, or finances. 
The liar has been defeated.  We have to deal with his lies.  What we believe changes over what we do. 
Take back what the enemy has stolen.  You have a get out of jail key, Who is Jesus. 
As a sibling of Jesus, you have equal rights with Papa God.  You.  Take every thought captive that does not line up with God's Word.  (Dickow discounts spiritual warfare/exorcism.  Regardless, his teaching is very relevant/practical/useful.)
Our present war is between our 2 ears!  REJECT wrong thoughts, in Jesus name.  REPLACE wrong thoughts with God's thoughts.  Put on God's eye glasses.  When I see germs on me, I see them fleeing, terrorized.  Disease flees.  Poverty flees. 
They are allergic to Jesus' Holy Spirit in me.  Be like the bouncer in the night club. 
To the intimidating enemy thought, just say, "NO, in the name of Jesus."

Hagin, Kenneth - The Most Important Things You Should Know about Healing - DVD - -
Yes, one MUST agree with and declare God's Word in Scripture and disagree with symptoms, feelings and bad reports. 
This is BEFORE, DURING and AFTER symptoms leave!  If a person gets a healing on some one else's faith, the enemy will try to return, bring a relapse, unless we are proactive and refuse and reject him, in the name of Jesus.  A disease or relapse is like a hole in the dike.  We need to prevent the water from entering our land.  When we notice a leak (or symptom) we exterminate it quickly and violently, in Jesus name.  It is our own faith, not the faith of the person who prayed over us, that will prevent a relapse. What is that faith?  It is the ability to verbally agree with God and shout, "NO, in Jesus' name."

Hutton, Larry -  
How to Live Free from Every Negative Emotion (Feeling)
WATCH the 1st 3 lessons of this 10 lesson DVD series by clicking play at Adobe Flash Player site at above link.  God showed Larry that, "The Enemy's Attacks Are All Fakes, Facades and Falsehoods!"   Jesus' fruit (HIS righteousness/peace/joy/happiness/gladness/contentment/love) is NOT seasonal. On the cross Jesus bore the (medical/chemical/demonic/evil/ hormonal) cause of every negative emotion!  The kingdom of God is in us 24/7, if we are born-again, if we have repented and asked Yeshua to be our Lord. 
Part 2 has testimony of woman with bipolar for 40 years (parent also had bipolar), who during 3rd reading of book Internal Affairs recognized that Jesus had already borne the reason for her bipolar.  She took that and her healing began; now she is free. She now recognizes and rejects all negative/sabotaging emotions.
Part 3 address nightmares/night terrors.
BOTTOM LINE:  We are to resist/reject all emotions/feelings/thoughts that do NOT help us.

Our will is our free will that chooses/allows/decides/permits.  When we elect to attend a move, we allow the negative/demonic to be transmitted/deposited into our soul as we watch it.  The more full of darkness the soul, is the harder it is to hear/discern God's voice
and the easier it is to be drawn back into old ways of thinking/behaving. 
That is how addictions occur.
(Thus we may need to censor our viewing and pay attention to film ratings,
plus avail ourselves of internet filters/fire-walls.)
To override/overrule/reverse these wrong choices and subsequent evil deposits we can PRAY:
"Father, as an act of my will, I NO longer want this. I No longer want to be a part of this.  I don't want this to be a part of me.
(In Jesus' name) I loose from my soul (and family tree) as an act of my will this addiction/hate/pornography/violence/(disease/defect/curse/rejection/gluttony/ Pharmacia/_________)." 
Whatever we loose on earth, God will loose/exterminate in 2nd heaven. 
Once it is loosed from our soul, it cannot pull us back into that same junk. 
Likewise, "Father, in Jesus' name, we bind to ourselves, Your love/mind/life/light/peace/ Word, which in turn we release to others to provide victory over defeat."  Thanks Lord.  Amen.7.26.2015.

'Family' groups are under a ruler.  In deliverance, the gift of discernment can zero in on a particular spirit. 
Often the Holy Spirit will give one of the ruler's name.  When this spirit is forced to manifest...his name, located in the thesaurus, becomes a tool to uncover his supportive network of demons...cohorts...
Each of these names can also be looked up to secure a more complete identification of various character deficiencies and spiritual reinforcements that might be present."

Virkler, Mark  Hearing God's Voice  8/31-9/4/2009 - Radio Show 1659 - September 1 show clarifies that, as a rule of thumb, a continuous stream of negative talk that contradicts the heart of God - is Satan's voice/thought; a continuous flow of holy good thought is the Holy Spirit's mind/thoughts; whereas the irregular analytical/critical/questioning is self talk.  Journaling one's thoughts in half hour increments, can be critiqued by one's spiritual mentor for validity. (It is very important to have a trusted spiritual advisor, especially in the case where one is on psychiatric meds.) 
Virkler, Mark -  1/25-29/2010  radio - excellent - The Friday 29th radio program reminds us that it is necessary to always refuse reentry to demons when they insist on returning to their old residences.  We do this in part by recognizing their familiar tricks and then quoting scripture that contradicts their nature.  For fear we would quote anti-fear scripture, etc.

Demons have a voice (
which we can begin to recognize through their nature.  In the same manner we can begin to recognize God’s nature and voice or thoughts in our minds.  As each human must say yes to Jesus regarding salvation of his soul, so must each human say no to (resist/refute/refuse) Satan regarding daily evil or wrong thoughts and actions contrary to God’s nature, as well as yes to God’s voice and thoughts – daily).

We are told in Luke 10:19—'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.' Believers are at war! And the Bible makes it clear that our foes are not of this world: 'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places' (Ephesians 6:12)."  (The Bible says that ignorance is no excuse for allowing any curse to remain in or on our lives.
In other words, a curse has a legal right to stay until it’s root cause is discovered and removed, in Jesus’ name.)

SID: Now you also teach on once you're healed, how to keep it....There were many tremendous healing evangelists...People would actually be healed, walk out the door, and somehow, their healing would disappear. What would you say to them?
JOAN: Well sometimes, what happens is you walk out the door...(and) that pain came back the following morning (so one would conclude,) I guess I wasn't healed (afterall).
JOAN: No. The enemy is coming and going. (Our speaking that) you didn't get (allowing the spiritual enemy to bring back the problem/disease)...Understand.  You have the authority to get that pinch (symptom) out of there...Like (satan/disease/issue, you can come) thus far and no more. (Thus we are to align ourselves with God's word and proclaim that,) I got healed last night (and) you (Satan) are NOT stealing (returning) this.  Because too many Christians allow the enemy to steal from our body, mind, soul, spirit and/or finances...These (curses, bad) things spoken over us, we need to cut off, because there's (evil) power in the words (spiritual weeds) spoken over us.
SID: How do you cut it off?
JOAN: There's power spoken in the words that we speak.  Just say, Father, in the name of Jesus, I got diagnosed with breast cancer. They said I wasn't gonna live. (I left that medical office).  #1 thing (I proclaim is that) I'm gonna live and not die through the will of the Lord. I was like a little helicopter, you know, running out of the office going, I cut those words in Jesus' name. The doctor said, "At your age," (several years ago) "you're going to go through menopause." 
Man, I heard about menopause. I didn't want to go through menopause, you know. It's horrible."

Dr. Nasir Siddiki TV - transcript - 8/22-28/2011 or 5-day Messianic radio interview with Sid Roth here. - Available CD How to Receive and Keep Your Healing .- "There is a difference between a symptom and a sickness, and if you don't understand this, the devil could take advantage of you."  "The symptoms have come back. But we've been able to identify the difference between the symptom and the sickness.  The average Christian, what happens is that the symptom comes back and immediately the response is, 'Well I didn't get healed, or I got healed and I lost it.'"  "What did you do when the symptom came back yourself?"  "1st, we had to identify it was a symptom. 2nd, we had to deal with it with the name of Jesus, and the authority that has been given to us by the Lord, Jesus Christ. Using the name and using the authority, we started to rebuke the symptom, and not open our mouth and acknowledge the sickness. Because the moment you open your mouth and acknowledge the sickness, you open the door for it to come back. So we said, no, we're not going there. This is a symptom and we're going to deal with it as a symptom. Sometimes people get a headache and they think, well my sickness is a headache. Usually, it isn't. The headache is a result of something else that is going on, and they never deal with the root. Well we had already dealt with the root, which was the sickness. We're not going to deal with that again. Jesus carried that one. Now we're going to deal with the symptom. And every time a symptom came, we were able to take that thought captive to the obedience of Christ, #1. #2, we were able to use the authority of the believer that Jesus gave us and the name that is above every name, and rebuke every symptom."

Receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a must for self defense and spiritual maturity.  It is like the house on top of the foundation.  Nonetheless, a house needs furniture, etc. to live a comfortable life.  Reading the scripture daily is one necessity to equip us against relapse.  1st premise/key is that no other exercise will replace reading God's Word daily.
It is even better to read scripture "out loud".  (One can also listen to Scripture on cassette/CD, in the car, at home or out walking.)

- 5/12/2015
SID: You talk about, and I love it, it's time to talk back to the devil.
KYLE: That's right. That's what God showed me and to lift this stuff out. That one of the greatest ways, it's the way that Jesus, when he had to combat the devil in the wilderness, we're talking about the devil trying to steal identity. Here Jesus is in Matthew 3, he's getting baptized, and then the heavens open and God speaks out an identity on Jesus, "This is my Son in whom I'm well pleased." 1st time in scripture that there's a public identity spoken on Jesus by his Father. Then the very next thing, Matthew 4, he goes out into the wilderness. He's famished.  What's the tempter coming to say? He comes to put doubt into Jesus about the very identity that God put on him. He said, "If you are the Son of God," but Jesus didn't put up with it, and we don't have to put up with it either. Here's what Jesus did. He used the power of the spoken word of God to talk back to the devil. He said, "It is written." And He used a relevant verse of scripture to shut down the devil's lie in His life. You see, the father of lies has no power when the truth of the Father is present. And so when I saw that, you know, Satan has no answer for that. So as Jesus did that, he did that 2 more times, and it says that Satan fled and angels came to minister to Jesus.  So that's what I started to do in my life. When you speak the Word of God, ultimately, it takes those nails of crucifixion from the cross of Christ and it punctures that lie so that it has to fall down before it can even get into your mind. It takes the influence right out of it.

Winston, Bill - Putting Faith to Work series - - Wed 7/20/2016  - What we do not resist, we can expect to remain.  We are to speak as forcefully as God.  We are to deny sickness/ negatives to remain, demonic arrows to wound/infect/kill us.  Increased demonic fire is to trick us to take back our defense/offense/faith/belief.

It took ministry until she understood that she had a spiritual war on her hands and was willing to fight it herself at home.  She had to change her thinking, so that she saw herself well, not as an invalid.

Jonah Lehrer -  2/28/2009 - The rational/mental/intellectual choices/decisions we make more often than not are influenced greatly by our emotional reactions/feelings.  "Behavioral economists set up 3 distinct choice environments, which allowed them to subtly bias the decision-making approach of the subjects. For instance, in condition two the volunteers were forced to memorize a long random string of numbers, which took up valuable cognitive space in working memory. There's a large body of evidence that such random digits make it harder to engage in "rational" thought, and thus make it more likely for people to rely on their emotional system. The researchers then had subjects choose between a series of paired objects. For instance, people were given a choice between a 'Quick Release Micro-Light Keychain' and a 'Voice Recording Keychain with LED'.  What did they find? In all 3 conditions, subjects who relied more on their emotional system made a more consistent set of decisions. In other words, the property of transitivity - which, along with 'completeness' is one of the basic assumptions of rational preference relations in economic theory - seems to depend not on rational thought processes but on those subtle emotional signals emanating from the limbic system. Here's the irony: In order to behave like a 'rational agent' one needs to rely on the emotional brain." - Unusual reason for relapse can be due to hidden/secret programming.  "GAMMA. Another form of system protection is through “deception” programming, which elicits misinformation and misdirection. This level is intertwined with demonology and tends to regenerate itself at a later time if inappropriately deactivated."  Deprogramming possible contact is Jerry Mungadze

Amen, Dr. Daniel G. - (secular) - 7 Ways To Optimize Your Brain and Your Life
Kill the ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts) That Invade Your Brain - "The thoughts that go through your mind, moment by moment, have a significant impact on how your brain works.  Research by Mark George, MD and colleagues at the National Institutes of Health demonstrated that happy, hopeful thoughts had an overall calming effect on the brain, while negative thoughts inflamed brain areas often involved with depression and anxiety. Your thoughts matter.  I often teach my patients how to metaphorically kill the ANTs that invade their minds. ANTs stand for Automatic Negative Thoughts. The ANTs are automatic. They just happen. But they can ruin your whole day, maybe even your life. For example, I once treated a college student who was ready to drop out of school. He thought he was stupid because didn't do well on tests. When his IQ (intelligence level) was tested, however, we discovered that he had an IQ of 135 (in the superior range). He just wasn't a good test taker. I have identified 9 different kinds of ANT species, or ways your thoughts can distort incoming information to make you feel bad. Here are 4 ANT species: Mind reading - predicting you know that another person is thinking something negative about you without them telling you. I often tell my patients that, 'A negative look from someone else may mean nothing more than he or she is constipated. You don't know.  You can't read minds. I have 25 years of training in human behavior and I still can't read anyone's mind.'  Fortune telling - predicting a bad outcome to a situation before it has occurred. Your mind makes happen what it sees. Unconsciously, predicting failure will often cause failure.
For example, if you say, 'I know I will fail the test,' then you will likely not study hard enough and fail the test.
Always or never thinking - this is where you think in words like always, never, every time, or everyone. These thoughts are overgeneralizations which can alter behavior. For example, I have a friend who asked out an attractive woman. She turned him down. He told himself that no one will ever go out with him again. This ANT prevented him from asking out anyone else for over 9 months.  Guilt beatings - being overrun by thoughts of 'I should have done... I'm bad because….
I must do better at… I have to'). Guilt is powerful at making us feel bad. It is a lousy motivator of behavior.
You do not have to believe every thought that goes through your head. It's important to think about your thoughts to see if they help you or they hurt you. Unfortunately, if you never challenge your thoughts you just 'believe them' as if they were true. ANTs can take over and infest your brain. Develop an internal ant-eater to hunt down and devour the negative thoughts that are ruining your life.  Once you learn about your thoughts, you can chose to think good thoughts and feel good or you can choose to think bad thoughts and feel lousy. You can train your thoughts to be positive and hopeful or you can just allow them to be negative and upset you. That's right, it's up to you! You can learn how to change your thoughts and optimize your brain. One way to learn how to change your thoughts is to notice them when they are negative and talk back to them. If you can correct negative thoughts, you take away their power over you. When you think a negative thought without challenging it, your mind believes it and your brain reacts to it."  (

Bevere, Lisa - Joni – Girls with Swords – Lisa Bevere (J984) 6/17/13 or - - Our spiritual enemy knows our potential destiny,
before we ever discover who we are in Christ.  Demonic attacks have more to do with who we may become when we align with God, than with our present circumstances.  Demonic attacks often have to do with the potential threat we will become to his kingdom.

SID: "Now one thing I find interesting is when you pray for people you tell them to relax. Now sometimes when I lay hands on people and pray for them, they’ll pray. I tell them, 'Stop praying. You can’t receive and transmit at that time.'”
MEL: "That’s right. Absolutely. James says in James, Chapter 1, that it says, 'A double-minded person is unstable in all their ways.' You can’t turn a light off and turn it on at the same time. So there’s a time to worship God, a time to praise Him. But there’s a time to receive and a time to receive is to be single-minded. That’s one of the things Jesus taught me. When you pray with your whole heart that’s being single-minded, and when you’re single-minded then you can receive. Then after you receive, then it’s time to worship and praise God."
SID: "What is greater than that is when God the Creator of the universe lives inside of you...Right now is your moment. With your whole heart to the best of your ability tell Jesus, 'I make you my Lord right now.'”

Dickerman, Don - When Pigs Move Out #1 - You can live in freedom says Don.  Major open doorways for demons to have interred one's life is unforgiveness, lingering anger, believing unscriptural doctrines, trauma, surgery.  3 R's are to IMMEDIATELY recognize, repent (confess to God) and resist (remain free of) the oppressive nature of evil in one's life.  4th R is to replace the negative with the positive, especially God's scriptural Truth.  (A synonym for demon can be a disease, a medical label, a mental illness, a temptation.  For instance, one can speak TO suicide without calling in a demon.  Say, "In Jesus' name, Suicide, go and do not return.")

Toxic thoughts if accepted and not rejected emit venom which harden into visible thorns in the brain.  However, these are reversible when negative memories are identified, captured, refused and replaced with positive ideas/thoughts over a minimum of 21 days.  [Think of the computer memory.  There is the temporary information  prior to the selection to save or not.  Our brain works in a similar fashion regarding memory.  The brain also has a physical area where one selects or rejects to keep thoughts.  It is imperative to deliberately filter one's thoughts and decide whether to keep or erase them.  As is true with the computer or the brain,
so is it true with our human spirit.  God tells us in scripture to test the spirits.  We need to test/capture/evaluate/judge every thought and determine if it is good/healthy or evil/unhealthy.  We need to determine if the thoughts are from God's Holy Spirit, the evil spirit, or from the human spirit.  All thoughts are not equal, beneficial, or holy.  Our choice to accept/save or to reject a thought will affect the health of our mind/emotions/brain/soul, our body, plus our spirit.  God created us to dwell in 3 realms (mind/body/spirit).  Ask the Holy Spirit to help; He will.]

One's emotional perceptions are stored in the amygdala. Thoughts have emotions, especially in regard to the positive (faith) and negative (fear). Never allow any thought to go/wander through your mind, without first checking it (like an airport passport inspector).  Daily/often journal and notice especially any repetitious thoughts. Listen to/observe/watch/capture/ discipline one's thoughts.  Do NOT feed (dwell on) wrong thoughts or emotions.  Don't suppress or indulge in wrong emotions.  Recognize and evict negative thoughts.  Replace with God's thoughts.  Rewire your brain with the Word of God and abstain from thinking and acting on the negative such as fear.  Admit, quit and beat wrong thoughts and/or emotions. Beware, one's emotional electrical/chemical brain circuits are NOT fully developed until age 18.  Reprogram your brain.  It takes 4 days to change one's thinking/habits and 21 days for brain to develop new thinking/ emotional pathways.

Sumrall, Lester - True story of Clarita Villanueva - A 17 year old girl bitten by devils in Bilibid Prison, Manila, Philippines - The Fascinating Case of Clarita Villanueva  Cached - -  - Historic Bilibid has a tragic past, where the Spanish imprisoned victims and Japanese committed atrocities.  Witnesses to May 1953 story are the Manila police, attending physician Dr. Marianna Lana, Mayor Arsenio Lascon, local constables, news reporters, professors, plus medical students. Sumrall told Dr Lana that there are 3 powers - positive, negative, and human. The Roman Catholic bishop had opted out of exorcism, leaving the door open for Sumrall to free the demonized girl. The devil spoke in English through Clarita (who herself cannot) to Sumrall.  The devil said that he did not like him, God, or the blood of Christ. Sumrall told Clarita that he came to deliver her from the power of the devils, in the name of Jesus Christ, the son of God.  He commanded, "Come out of her you evil and wicked spirit of hell.  Come out of her in Jesus Name!"  Sumrall fasted/prayed.  Encounter 2, when the demons left, they attached a mocking prisoner (plus later apparently on killing an officer).  Encounter 3.  Then the demons returned, saying that they had a legal right to stay, because she was unclean.  Sumrall countered with the fact that Mary Magdalene became clean (freed of her 7 unclean spirits) by the power of Jesus.  He commanded them to leave and asked Jesus to make her clean.  Clarita then asked Jesus to forgive her for her past sins.  Encounter 4. Sumrall asked the demons why they came back.  They responded that although he wanted them to depart, she had never asked them to leave.  Thus Clarita told the demons to depart and never return (in the name of Jesus).  Sumrall taught Clarita the necessity of praying and pleading the blood of Jesus.  He taught her to say, "Go, in Jesus name. God, deliver me in Jesus name and in Jesus blood."  Encounter 5.  When attacked, she could not remember the words to pray, but a guard did remember and helped rescue her. Clarita's deliverance is what opened the doors for a great revival in the Philippines.  (PS - Before the spirits could be totally eradicated, a crucifix worn on her dress plus a rosary had to be destroyed, due to an attachment these 2 spirits had to those objects.)

Resist the Devil land He Will Flee - "Did you ever hear about that devil that Lester Sumrall cast out of a girl (
Clarita Villanueva) over in the Philippines?  Well...he had to cast the devil out of her about 12 times, because that devil would come right back into her...The 12th time he went back to cast it out in Jesus' name...the Lord said to him, 'Now, look over there'...Across the fence...sat a big demon and a little demon...The girl he was casting the demon out of had been a prostitute...These were the same 2 demons that had been biting her and making her have sex with them.  Then the Lord said to Lester, 'Now, you made those demons leave her for the 12th time, and this is your 12th trip over hereNow those demons are standing over on the other side of the fence, because you have cast them out and made them leave, but as soon as you leave the property, they will come right back and jump on top of her again and try to mess her upNow, you want her to stay free, don't youWell, tell her I said to resist them herself Tell her to say, "I resist you in Jesus' nameGo from me!"  ...So (to Clarita)...he (Sumrall) said, 'I want you to say, "In Jesus' name, devils,  I take authority over you and command you to leave me!  I resist you, devils.  I don't want you.  I resist you, and I don't want you!  I resist you in Jesus' name.  You can't have me.  I don't want you!"   When she did (as Sumrall instructed), they left - and she stayed free...
Because those devils had been with her so long and done all kinds of things to her, she will (likely) have to resist them for the rest of her life...As soon as she stops resisting those devils, they will (attempt to) jump right back on top of her again and start harassing her...
Any devil that you have ever fooled around with will (want to) come back again.  He will check up on you every once in a while and try to get you," (so make sure you have repented of all sin and, in Jesus' name, have closed all doors to any demonic trespassers.  That done, you can bind and refuse and reject him and all his cohorts, in Jesus' name.  
Make sure you have invited Jesus to come live in your heart and invited Jesus to baptize you with His Holy Spirit, thus leaving no vacancy in your person for Satan or his demons to visit/vacation/retire).

Wilkerson, David - 11/3/2003 - War in Heaven - If You Think the Devil Is Winning, Just Wait -  
Even before the foundation of the world, God devised a war plan to defeat the devil...Finally, in 'the fullness of time,' God sent his Son down to the battlefield.  Here was God in flesh, entering the battle Himself. The Lord was stating, 'The battle has now changed.  I’m taking command. Satan will no longer prevail. This is the beginning of the end of the war in heaven. And the victory is Mine'..for every generation.”  On the cross "Jesus let out a cry that thundered throughout creation, 'It is FINISHED.' When Satan and his demons heard this, they trembled and quaked. They realized it was all over. They must have shrieked, 'We are finished! The Son of God has trampled on us. He’s put us to open shame. He has robbed us of every power we’ve had over people. We can no longer hold anybody who’s under his blood.'  3 days later, another powerful cry was heard: 'Christ is risen!' This was Satan’s darkest hour. In an instant, the war suddenly changed. Revelation describes it this way: 'I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him (Satan/demons/ accusations/voices) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony' (Revelation 12:10-11).  What was the power Satan lost in that instant? It was the ability to accuse any person who had been cleansed by Jesus’ blood. The devil could no longer hold a believer in chains of guilt, fear or condemnation. He was robbed of all his power to deceive or destroy those who live by faith in Christ’s sacrifice. He no longer had dominion over anyone who trusts in Jesus.  God was making a legal declaration to all who would believe in his Son: 'You have been made free. The power of the devil can’t hold you if you trust in the power of the blood of Jesus Christ.  There is no power under heaven that can bring you down.”  There were now 2 kingdoms...Right now is Satan’s last-ditch effort to destroy the bride of Christ. The devil has issued an all-out battle cry. And he’s releasing everything in his arsenal to try to bring down God’s elect" (those elect who fail to remind themselves and their descendants of the bail and the inheritance God has provided for each individual who claims Jesus as his/her Messiah and baptizer in the Holy Spirit.  If not ask God, right now. God's elect are both homeless and housed, whoever trusts in Jesus to be his/her forgiver
of sins, savior and deliverer from evil.)

Wilkerson, David  4/19/2004 - Devil, You Can't Walk on Me Anymore - - Isaiah 51 +52 paraphrased - "It doesn’t matter whether this bondage is mental, physical or spiritual. God’s eye is on every saint who staggers under the weight of an awful burden. And He gives them this (Isaiah 51:21) word, 'Don’t think for a moment this weight has come upon you as a result of sin. You’re under a direct attack from Satan. The enemy of your soul has accused and tormented you. So now, like a person who’s drunk on wine, you’re woozy from the effect. You’ve been blind-sided by the devil, and you think you’ve caused it. But you have to listen to me now. I want your ear, because I have a word to speak to you.' 
Maybe right now you’re enduring a dark night of the soul. Perhaps you’re sitting on an ash heap of perceived failure. Or, you’re weighed down by a band of sinful chains hanging around your neck. You’ve worn it for so long now, you’ve sunk into despair. You’ve laid aside the robe of righteousness Jesus gave you, because you feel unworthy to wear it. You’re simply too depressed to move on in faith...
'Therefore hear now this…Thus saith thy Lord the Lord, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling…
But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee
” (Isaiah 51:21-23 KJV). 
The Lord is saying, in other words: 'I’m here to plead your cause, to intervene for you. 
I make you this promise: I will take from you the cup of fear that’s plaguing your life. 
I’ll place it in the hands of those who oppress you. I’ve had it with every demon or person who has caused your affliction. I won’t allow their harassment to continue.
I’m telling you right now, it’s all over for your oppressors.' He (Messiah) has directed his fury at those 'which have said to thy soul, 'Bow down, that we may go over.' (Isaiah51:23).
...But I also have to point out your part in this. The truth is, you’ve allowed the devil to have his way with you."
Jesus speaks to His children, "'At first, Satan overwhelmed you with his tactics. But instead of resisting him with My promises, you’ve bowed and scraped to him. You’ve willingly laid down your body in fear, on the streets of despair. And you’ve subjected yourself to his devilish indignities. You let him rub your face in the dust.
You let him walk all over you. You’re totally intimidated by his principalities and powers
"God is indignant at what’s happening. He’s saying (meaning in Isaiah 52:5), “What am I seeing here? Why are my people being robbed and humiliated so easily? Satan is taking them down at will, ruling over them, harassing them, making them cry and howl. And they’re giving him no resistance. This blasphemes My name, My majesty, My power.”
In Isaiah "(51:5). He’s saying (meaning), 'I’ve already spoken the word of your deliverance. I (already) decreed it in my covenant promises. I have (already) stretched forth My mighty arm (on the cross), to take you out of your wilderness experience.  So, why don’t you (NOW) claim what I’ve decreed? Why don’t you (NOW) walk in the light of My freedom, joy and peace?'”  Isaiah "(51:7). In other words: 'Why do you measure yourself by others’ concepts of success or failure? I’ve given you promises from eternity. But you’ve brought reproach upon yourself. You’ve laid down on the ground as a stepping stone for the enemy.'”   (You have failed to become informed of My word and promises in scripture or knowing, to believe and act on them.)"  "The Lord then points out  (in 51:14), 'You’ve become a captive to your own fear, bound by needless doubts. Instead of running to (reading, being acquainted with, believing, applying, claiming) My Word (Son, salvation, Messiah, deliverance, promises, Holy Spirit, Me, inheritance left for you), you struggle against your bonds (what you have allowed out of ignorance, pride, fear or rebellion)  “The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail.'  Simply put, we’ve become preoccupied with our circumstances. And we’ve failed to remember (weld/speak/apply/cut off our bonds with) His Word (His sword) to us (according to Isaiah 52:7 KJV): 'That bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation (including deliverance); that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!' ”  (Remember, God personally left each generation and each person an inheritance, His last will and last testament, His Son in the tomb - so to speak.  We need to read the Bible, open His last will and testament, open the tomb - and let Jesus out.  His Holy Spirit can only act for us in our lifetime when WE apply/speak His Word.  It does NO use to pray.  God already acted.  Jesus already acted 2,000 years ago.  We are the ones He is waiting on to act.  Our inheritance is locked up in the legal documents of the Bible.  His battery/electricity/power/Holy Spirit can only work when we plug Him in by reading, believing in, speaking and acting on His word in scripture.  All this time we have been waiting for Him to show up.  Big mistake.  God showed up at creation and the Messiah showed up 2,000 years ago.  We show up and do nothing. 
Oh, wake up, right NOW.  Our deliverance is PAST tense.  Grab it today.  Do not doubt.  Fight for your inheritance, just as did the Israelis did when they went to take possession of the land promised to them when they came out of the desert after wandering in circles 40 years.  Wake up, immediately.)

, David - 3/19/2007 - A Target of Satan's Envy in the World challenge Pulpit Series - -
"I’m speaking to those who endure deep trials and are worn out mentally, physically and spiritually...
The most trying of all spiritual battles take place in the mind of the believer. Many Christians endure tremendous mental anguish, battling thoughts that are oppressive, un-Christ-like, fearful. They can’t shake depressing memories of past failures. They end up feeling not worthy of fellowship or God’s blessings...
Once you set your heart to seek the Lord, determining to lay hold of his promises, you become a target of Satan’s envy. There comes a time in every believer’s life when he faces a choice: he can remain lukewarm in his faith, or he can cross a line to follow Jesus with all his heart. Whenever we choose to lay hold of Christ fully, we stir up the bowels of hell. Satan sends his demonic hordes to unleash hell’s wrath in our lives...
The devil cannot endure the thought that anyone 'lesser' than himself could taste anything of paradise. He is totally envious of anyone who is blessed to behold what he lost for eternity."  In scripture "according to Paul, this hellish hound was permitted by God in his life to keep pride out of his heart. The devil assigned this messenger to afflict Paul’s flesh,
causing him physical and mental pain.  Satan instructed the demon to be unrelenting in his attack: 'Buffet Paul repeatedly.  Hit him day after day, never letting up.' But envy had blinded Satan’s eyes about Paul. What the devil used to try to bring him down - a barrage of physical and mental attacks - God turned to Paul’s good...These attacks were the result of Satan at one time losing his own intimacy with the Father...That is why Satan won’t let up on you. It’s why you are being buffeted. He is determined not to allow any chance for the Holy Ghost to rekindle that flame in you. For this reason, Paul warns us not to be ignorant of the devil’s wiles: 'Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices' (2 Corinthians 2:11). If we ignore the enemy’s tactics, we may allow him to gain a foothold, or advantage, over us."  "Sometimes Satan finds people to say hurtful, damaging things out loud to us.  But mostly, the enemy uses his demonic powers, sending them to shake our faith.  They whisper to us subtle but devastating thoughts formulated by the wicked one himself.  Even the godliest believers are not immune to such attacks. Such was the case with David, who heard these accusations: 'You have no home. Your own family has rejected you. You’ve got problems of all kinds, David. How could you claim to be God’s anointed?'...It is no surprise that Satan sent an evil spirit to possess (oppress) Saul, a compromised (Israeli) king, who would manifest hell’s rage against David: 'Saul eyed [envied] David from that day and forward”  (1 Samuel 18:9).'”  "Satan...cowers before those who are up on their feet and ready to resist.  Because he fears you, his design is to neutralize your fighting spirit. The devil does this by trying to flood your mind with defeating, distracting, hellish thoughts that breed mistrust and questions about God’s power. He’ll scream into your mind and spirit, 'It’s no use fighting anymore. You’re too weak from your personal struggles. You’re never going to be an over-comer.
The powers of hell are just too big to overcome. So, you might as well relax. You don’t need to be so intense about the battle anymore.' (Beware, often Satan will use the pronoun 'I' instead of 'you'!  Instead of, 'you are no good', your thoughts will be, 'I am no good'.)...
Beloved, this is all a distraction! Satan’s entire strategy is to get you to take your eyes off the victory of the Cross. He wants to turn your focus onto your weaknesses, your sins, your shortcomings - and that’s why he turns up the heat of your present problems and sufferings. He wants to make you believe you aren’t strong enough to go on. But your strength is NOT the point; Jesus’ strength is...Fully trust in Christ’s 'blood sacrifice.'  (Take communion often and contemplate on Jesus blood that had enough life and power in it to resurrect Him from death)...
Satan...sends (invisible) vultures down...What are these vultures? They’re thoughts that are birthed in hell, coming to harass you and cause you to question Christ’s faithfulness to you...You may be feeling the swipes of vultures sent by Satan to make you falter...Whenever any voice of doubt or questioning of God comes into my mind, I have to line it up against what I know about my loving Lord. I can’t accept any thoughts as true if they are based on simply what I’m feeling in the moment. They have to be measured against Jesus’ promises to me about himself and about the victory he has won for me...
If thoughts come to me that are accusing, if they cause doubt and fear, or are condemning, or bring a sense of rejection -
I know they are not of God. We all have to be prepared for such horrible thoughts to come. Even the Lord Jesus was subject to these kinds of thoughts from the enemy during his wilderness temptation...
One godly prophet confessed to me, 'Recently, I’ve been harassed by evil thoughts. It’s the first time in my life this has happened.' But the Holy Spirit assured him: 'Stand still in faith. These are NOT your thoughts; they are from Satan. The devil wants to convince you that you’re as evil as the thoughts he sends. He wants to stagger your faith. Just hold on, and trust the Lord. You’re NOT going to sink. You’re under attack, because you have shaken the foundations of hell
My friend chased away those vultures, using (speaking aloud) God’s Word in faith. Likewise, Jesus resisted (by quoting scripture) Satan’s temptations in the wilderness, and the devil left him for a time...
When vultures come at you, bringing thoughts of unworthiness and insecurity, chase them away with God’s Word."

- Temptation Is Tied To Thought - 1/7/2011 - - Symptoms (demons/temptations/diseases) always return to test our trust in Who and what we believe!

Wommack, Andrew - 
Living in the Balance of Grace and Faith - 10/22/2009 broadcast shares Wommack's testimony of believing the lie that Satan is God's messenger boy or assistant in using sickness and curses such as cancer to refine us and bring others to Christ through our suffering and death.  Yes, God does use anything to work for His good, in spite of Satan or ourselves, but sickness and curses are EVIL and not good nor blessings.  We need to REJECT such lies,
for they can destroy or maim us both physically, emotionally and spiritually, if not refused and renounced, in Jesus' name.  Yes, Satan does need permission, but more often than not, it is we not He who gives that permission with our: stinking thinking, spoken words, unforgiven iniquities and sins, and/or ignorance of scripture.  Have we read the entire Bible? Once?  Yearly?  Never!  Lies germinate and flourish best in minds not marinated with scripture.
Wommack, Andrew - God Wants You Well -
The thoughts that we listen to, entertain, do not reject, revisit in our mind, are the ones that can take root and derail our progress with God.  Listen to radio rather than watch TV, as visual media has a greater ability to dethrone one's good intentions.  Be quick to turn off any media that contradicts what God says in scripture.  "You NEED this medicine, this vaccination, this remedy," per advertisers, is man's point of view.

Wommack, Andrew - Sharper Than A 2 Edged Sword - beginning 4/11/2011- God did NOT create Satan.  Rather He created Lucifer, the most awesome creature of worship, who had the ability to choose/decide/reject/etc.  Lucifer became Satan as he sabotaged/disrobed himself of his glory in attempt to be self sufficient and in a attempt to usurp God.  (Satan has never surrendered and is still contending for his own personal kingdom.)  However, because of God's love and mercy and because of what Jesus accomplished, Satan needs to have our consent/cooperation to act.  (This is especially true in the life of the born-again Holy Spirit filled individual, who due to ignorance/complicity/immaturity/disobedience fails to act.)
Wommack, Andrew - 10/13/2016 4th day of Who Made Satan.  Wommack's origin of Satan from Lucifer may be disconcerting and even wrong but man’s empowerment of Satan and his curses & demons since his fall is a significant & relevant Truth.  Thus today’s lesson has an important point regarding self-protection/defense and healing/deliverance from personal ill health/disease/defect, plus insight regarding spiritual offense regarding intimidation. [We often empower our own trouble, by what we say/allow/do or fail to do, because the enemy needs permission to proceed.  Today is the season to terrorize the terrorizer.]

Zarit, Steven  Sid Roth radio 1/28/2008-2/1/2008 interview #1576 with Steven - 1/29/2008 interview shares that Messianic Jew Steven when lying on his bed saying, "Hallelujah" was good, but when holding a Bible and saying, "Hallelujah" was better, bringing both an angel and the Holy Spirit.  Being baptized in water by immersion helped, too.  Of course, the key, the beginning to his joy was recognizing and receiving Jesus as his personal savior.

Mental Health

Fisher, Dr Daniel - Believing you can recover is vital to recovery from mental illness. - - Fisher is a recovered schizophrenic.  His National Empowerment Center, Inc. clinic seems to be a fantastic asset to the psychiatric community.  However his advocacy of Ayurvedic Medicine is ominous in that much of it has occultic/Satanic origins.  Fisher cites "Deepak Chopra's book Quantum Healing (p.189) ...'The reason why meditation is so important in Ayurveda is that it leads the mind to a free zone that is not touched by the disease. Until you know that such a place exists, your disease will seem to be taking over completely. This is the principal delusion that needs to be shattered.'"   [REBUTTAL: Yes, yes, yes, but no, no, no.  Yes, there is a SPIRITUAL place that is ignored by secular medicine and recognized by many in alternative medicine, by Satanists, witches, witch doctors, and by anyone who prays.  What most do not recognize (or do recognize and take advantage of) is the existence and operation of evil spirits. The Catholic church recognizes the existence of evil spirits and exterminates/evicts them through exorcism.  The Charismatic/Pentecostal church recognizes the power of the Holy Spirit Who heals and delivers people from mental illness.  Any "meditation" that opens the mind/soul to anything that wants to enter, opens his/her mind to the entry of evil spirits.  The Holy Spirit comes only by personal invitation; evil spirits enter by any "legal" spiritual means including inheritance or spiritual windows/gates/doors/etc left open inadvertently or willfully.]  1st John 4:1-3 NIV    Do NOT believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God.  Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ (Messiah) has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit (demon/religion/church/pastor/ministry/healer) that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.  This is the spirit of the antichrist (anti-Messiah), which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the  world.
Fisher, Dr Daniel - Healing and recovery are real. - -

Recover What the Spiritual Enemy Has Stolen Chapter 51:1 In those days shall the earth also give back that which has been entrusted to it, Sheol also shall give back that which it has received, and hell shall give back that which it owes.

#168) Kat Kerr - You're Marked When You Fall - Dec 23, 2012 -
Lucifer/Satan does not want you to worship God. There's more than one reason.
#1 He is still thinks it belongs to him, but this is the 2nd reason. He built his place in the 2nd heaven, and he has a palace and a museum, and a trophy room. He has this mock graveyard, when a believer sins, he goes and scratches your name on one of the tombstones. You don't want that to happen. Then he'll begin to pursue you. So they know when you fall. You get marked in the spirit realm. They'll hunt you when they see stuff on you...But he has a place in the 2nd heaven which is a spiritual place.  That's why it's important to repent and have that stuff removed...
Your praise is incense and it's a spiritual weapon. When you worship God on earth, it goes right through the 2nd heaven to get to him. Busts up his stuff in the 2nd heaven. When you come together corporately and worship, it's like sending a ballistic missile through there. When you go home to Heaven as a believer, you bust the biggest hole ever through his 2nd heaven. He was really dumb putting it there. He thought he could do it to interfere with God and all of his people, and all he did was make himself a waiting target. So don't stop worshipping. Don't stop praying."

Relapse Prevention

Regarding DELIVERANCE per se, or any fast/miraculous recovery/healing, it is imperative, besides having a weekly/consistent mentor/church/friend/family, to consistently ENFORCE G-d's word in one's life regarding one's mental health; Satan will not just walk away without continual/consistent testing of will/boundaries/muscle/emotions/old-weaknesses/resolve/ spiritual-insight/belief-in-and-understanding-of-one's-identity-in-Christ. Remind both God and Satan that, "God is NOT a man, that He should lie, like satin does 24/7."  Persistence, oh son of God, in Jesus' name.  Do NOT quit; let Satan quit, instead.  Amen...
We can eat undercooked meat such as pork or fish and become infested with parasites.  We can drink or swim in impure/infested water or tread on infested land and become infected with parasites from insect bites or worms.  Often unknowingly/unwittingly.  Likewise without our consent or foreknowledge, satan or his underlings often have legal access to us, even when we are unawares, via biological inheritance, the neighborhood in which we dwell or pass through, or via strategic spiritual enemy attacks/arrows...
When we do become aware, we then have access to the help of the Holy Spirit and His angels to remediate, even to reverse, in the name and power of Jesus Christ, Who provides ongoing help and deliverance as we enforce/appropriate our inheritance as sons/daughters of Father God.


All thoughts are NOT equal.  Some thoughts are mine.  Some are God's.  Some are from demons!
Refuse those thoughts which always get you readmitted back into the hospital. 
Refuse those thoughts that get you into trouble. 
Never rely on your feelings.  They can lie, too.  Rely on what God says in His Bible. 
Read it OUT LOUD.
Rely on those people who bless you, even on those who show tough love...
Since humans are trinity - 3 parts, sometimes all 3 parts need relapse prevention intervention!
Doctors may need to give meds, at least temporarily.
Counselors may need to give therapy, at least temporarily.
Pastors may need to minister to the spirit, at least temporarily.
If any one of the above (body/mind/spirit) are not healed, then there could be relapses.
Often we need a family/congregation/community/village to minister to EACH aspect of our humanness...
If there is a compulsive/addictive/compelling/intrusive/insistent/badgering/overwhelming thought/emotion/feeling interfering in our life, then there may be a strong likelihood that it is not ME but rather a he/it, a demon.  Paul the apostle says in scripture that he does that which he does not want to do.  The flesh/human nature can do that in response to our fallen humanity, immaturity, circumstances, and demonic interference. 
In such a case, relinquish that impulse to God, declare that the flesh is dead in Christ,
and rely on Him to provide strength to change/replace with His thoughts and to flee temptation.  Each time we should get stronger and stronger to resist the enemy that so plagues/torments/molests/ bothers/haunts us with the emergency requirement to fight or flee (over eat/drink/shop/sleep/drug/smoke)Thank You Father God...
Do NOT refuse help from most sources; even an enemy can help at times. 
God even used a donkey according to scripture. 
The occult is typically a spiritual danger to us and NOT family, friends, doctors, etc...
Satan and his staff consistently and continually contest/challenge our identify in the Trinity. 
Satan basically asks, "Who the hell do you think your are?"
An excellent illustration of this is Yeshua's demonic temptation after a 40 day fast in the dessert - following His euphoria with the baptism of God's Holy Spirit, which was a threat to the kingdom of the enemy.
Matthew 4-3 - King James Bible Online to verse 16. 
Our answer is always, not who we are, but who He is in us.  Satan attempts to disqualify, whereas the Trinity is the One Who is the qualifier.  Our value is NOT about us, but always about Jesus Who paid the price and bought us.  Override and overrule with holy scripture.

Prayer to Resist the Spiritual Enemy - in Faith
Dr. Bern Zumpano, Former Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Professor of Neurosurgery (retired),
Oral Roberts University School of Medicine, Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - 1999 -

"Scripture tells us that we are to resist the devil and that he will flee from us.
It says that we are to resist IN FAITH, not in self-effort.
We ABIDE (depend on, rely on, dwell) in Christ and His power to manifest IN us and THROUGH us.
Pray: 'I am able to stand against the enemy, in Christ Jesus’ Name.'
Or pray something like this: 'I stand on Romans 6 - and the enemy is driven out from before me, above me, around me, below me, from my home, from my workplace, from my church and its ministries, from my children and loved ones, from my works and labors, from my land, and from my presence;
I decree that they are not able to stand against me; their works are taken captive and destroyed.
No weapon formed against me shall prosper; for the Spirit of the Lord shall raise a standard against them.
I decree all of these things accomplished in Christ Jesus’ Name and for Your Glory, Father, in Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.'
Pray: 'I stand fast against Satan and his kingdom, and they must flee from me in 7 directions, according to the (spoken) Word of God, which is their defeat.
I decree every demonic foe driven out from this place and from our: and its ministries, and from my presence, all in Christ Jesus’ Name, Amen.'"

Prayer Against Temptations
Prayer for Circumcision of Heart
Prayer for Transformation

"Pray something like this:
'Lord Jesus Christ, I come to you with a humble and contrite heart.
Your Word says in John 15:5 that without You I can do nothing. I know that, Lord...
I declare myself helpless to change myself. Only You can change me. Cut out from my heart all that is (not of Your nature, unclean and) unholy in thoughts, word, deed, beliefs, actions, habits, behaviors and desires that are not pleasing to You or to Father.
Give me a hate for them and for all sin. Cut them out of my heart of the 'flesh' and the soul-life (mental/emotional life) that agrees with it. Be persistent, Lord. Be complete. Leave nothing untouched.
I give you permission, Lord, to do Your work in my life through the power of Your Holy Spirit. 
(Mind, I command you to align yourself with the mind of God. 
Emotions, I command you to align yourselves with the emotions of God. 
Thoughts, I command you to align yourselves with the thoughts of God. 
Body likewise, I command you to align yourself with the designs of God, in Jesus name.  Yes, Lord, You are a great designer and I praise Your perfect work.)...
I know that You (are tender hearted and gentle and) will not harm me (nor allow others to harm me without Your consent)  [Since personal and ancestral sin opens the door for curses, I repent for each sin which I have not confessed before (namely ______ ) and also also my family sins (namely _______ )]...  
In particular, Lord, cut out...the behavior(s) of (name them); I yield myself and these Your Holy Spirit for circumcision...
I know and trust that You are able, and that You WILL deliver me from my "self’.
Take from me all that You cannot use, all that is of sin, all that is unholy and unbecoming, all that is "self’ motivated or promoting (due to pride or inferiority).
I desire to commune with You, Father, with You, Lord Jesus Christ, with You, Holy Spirit.
I desire to walk in total obedience and submission and surrender to You, Lord Jesus Christ. (You) make all of these things happen, Lord. I trust You for them.
I confess by my mouth that You do it. I believe that I receive all that I have confessed, and take possession by my trust and expectation on You;
I yield myself continually, by my will, to Your Holy Spirit.
I invite You into all of my circumstances to take over all aspects of my life, Lord.
(You) hear and answer me, O God, and...(will)...not withhold from me any good thing, for Your Glory, Lord.
I cry to You in my times of trouble and anguish over what I am in the natural, O Lord.
Your Word says that You hear and respond...
I take possession of Your Truth, Your Spirit, Your Love, Your Word which is LIFE AND LIGHT.  By FAITH [in You (Col. 2:12)] I call it applied to my life and circumstances and confess my heart continually circumcised (and made brand new and pleasing in Your sight) by the power of Your Spirit and Your Word, this day, and every day to come, in Your Name...I pray, Amen.'"  
[In order to assist Your Holy Spirit in this endeavor, I rededicate myself to You Lord Jesus as my Lord and Savior and my baptizer in the Holy Spirit.  Thank You. (or) Lord Jesus, I now invite you to become my Lord and Savior AND my baptizer in the Holy Spirit, right NOW.  In gratitude, I thank You.  Amen.]

Prayer for Damaged Relationships

"When you are suffering from a damaged relationship such as that which has occurred
from a divorce, a cheating spouse, a rebellious son or daughter, an uncaring parent,
friend, or relative, pray something like this:
'Lord Jesus Christ, when my relationship with You was damaged by my sinful life,
and I was not saved, Your Precious Blood was able to reconcile my relationship to you.
Now, Lord, I present to you, this damaged relationship that I have with (name the person).
I ask that You apply Your Precious Blood to their relationship with me,
and reconcile us by Your Blood.
I confess that You are able, and that it WILL happen, by trusting
and expectant faith in Your Name, Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.'"
