DELIVERANCE AND THE HUMAN WILL
cast out demons in a person who says they want to go
home when we realize that it is the demons talking?
to talk to her about this, make her realize what was
happening, that the demon was controlling her, but that
it could be gotten rid of, but all she wanted to do was
go home. She began to get more and more agitated at the
deliverance team to the point where she was angry and
was on the verge of saying things that I felt she would
eventually regret. So I let her go home.
another hour praying for her after she left. We even
went looking for her on the off chance that she had
remained some place in the church, but her car was gone.
What should I have done? I didn't know what else to do?
Should I have made her stay and instead cast that demon
out of her? Against her will? And will a demon leave
when it knows the "house" it is living in, doesn't want
to give it up?
FROM SANDY: TEACHING ON DELIVERANCE
see your dilemma. In answer to your question, the bottom
line is that people have to be able to keep the demons
out after they leave, otherwise 7 worse will return. A
person's will is very important in deliverance. Our
awesome God is so huge and so powerful and yet He chose
to yield His rights to be so in one area: giving free
will. He could force anyone to love Him, but that would
take the real gift of love away. All of heaven and earth
and hell are submitted to the principle of free will. It
was there from the beginning and satan took 1/3 of
heaven with him.
demon leave regardless of a person's will? Yes if forced
out by someone stronger than he. But that is not wisdom,
and might be unauthorized deliverance.
will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name,
and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will
declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you
who practice lawlessness!'
of demons that came through the womb from blood lines,
it is my understanding that all demons are pets. They
are nurtured and coddled because of sin and then they
grow where even worse ones come in until there is a real
infrastructure, finally to the point that the person has
no more will. (... sin no more lest a worse thing come
upon you. John 5:14)
majority of the time people do not even realize that the
emotions they are feeling are not their own, but the
demons stroking their own personalities through their
host. It is very sad and sickening to really understand
this truth. Yes I believe that most of demonic power is
empowered because of human free will and their ability
to hide under the cloke of human ignorance.
approach to deliverance is twofold. One, usually if the
person is asking for it, they are ready. Two if the Holy
Spirit's Presence has caused a demon to manifest, then
that particular demon is ready. If the demon is
manifesting and the person is not ready, then bind the
demon and command it to stop manifesting and wait on the

Here is a past Word to Ponder about free will. Because
of hardness of hearts, sometimes in God's great love, He
allows things to become worse, in order to make
resistant wills open to Him.
OF DEMARCATION FOR VOLUNTEER LOVERS 3/7/02
is unconditional and I only want volunteers who will
love Me in return. I will not demand another's love for
I only want those who will love Me of their own free
wills. But the time is short and I am about to bring in
My great harvest. Many loved ones are yet lost,
presently destined for an eternity away from Me. I love
them so much, that I will go to great lengths to bring
mercy, I suffer long with the rebellions of the world. I
call and call and they do not hear. I give them good
gifts from My bountiful mercy and they do not heed. So
now I will turn My face and still in love I will give
them great tribulation so that some will turn through
suffering. And some will heed the earnest warnings and
come in under the wings of My loving embrace.
dividing line of demarcation is coming between those of
My own and those of the world. The cities will see some
who are miserable and some living in joy. Some men's
hearts will fail them for fear. Other's men's heart will
beat and skip in passion over Me. For I call them My
own, spotless and without fault when they stand before
Me. It is because I have washed and cleansed My own
through My Son's precious blood. They know My love and
it has proven unconditional, no matter what.
you are My own and I have made you altogether lovely and
whole and I see not even a blemish. Accept My Son's
blood for you, and accept that before My eyes, you are
pure as the fresh fallen snow. I love you with an
everlasting love. Know that when men's hearts fail them
for fear, that yours is safe with Me.
see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from
their trials, even while punishing the wicked right up
until the day of judgment." (2 Peter 2:9-10 NLT)
