"There is a time for everything, a season
for every activity under heaven. 2 A time to be born and
a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. 3
A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down
and a time to rebuild. 4 A time to cry and a time to
laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. 5 A time to
scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to
embrace and a time to turn away. 6 A time to search and
a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet
and a time to speak up. 8 A time to love and a time to
hate. A time for war and a time for peace." (Eccl 3:1-8
IS IT TIME TO DELIVER?
At the moment of demonic manifestation, there are 5
different wrestlings going on at the same time. Evaluate
God’s will - His strong Presence to make
manifest and deliver in the room. (or the lack of
The devil’s will - His strong rebellion to
distract and kill faith. (or the lack of it)
The person’s will - The person’s desperation to
be set free. (or the lack of it)
The people’s will - The unity of the people in
attendance. (or the lack of it)
Your will - Do you want to deliver this person
now? (or the lack of it)
What is the environment and context of the group
meeting at that moment?
How many people are involved, how many are
watching in the audience? If most are involved, the
Holy Spirit is obviously doing a corporate group
What is the degree of demonic manifestation?
(Violence or just noise?)
Do you know the person’s present condition or
background? Do they need counsel? Is there space for
counsel, can the counsel be heard in the room?
How is your own faith at this moment? Is this
something you want to deal with right now?
NOTE: As the Holy Spirit increases in our
meetings, people will be delivered as a natural result.
We will not be personally delivering people unless they
are stuck in a demonic manifestation and they need our
individual help. Therefore is it up to us to be aware of
when a deliverance is going on and be able to help when
LEARNING TO DISCERN THE TIME
> Deliverance is a time of tearing down a house of
sin, it is not a time of building up.
> The key to team deliverance is the ability to
recognize the "timing" in what the Holy Spirit is doing
and how He wants to go about it.
A TIME TO TEAR DOWN
Examples of tools that tear down:
Brief counsel for forgiveness
Time for confession or renunciation
Warfare intercession via tongues, and
Authority taken against demons or curses
Praying for the Lord to reveal layers
Scriptures declared against the demonic
Scriptural declaration over the person
A TIME TO BUILD
Examples of tools that build:
Words of edification, exhortation and
Praying for healing
Praying for wounds
Soaking in His Presence
Praying for the Holy Spirit to fill the
Praying for the Lord to seal the
Releasing a blessing over the person
Occurs usually after deliverance, or
but not during
If you have a gift that builds, wait for
A TIME TO UNIFY
If one member begins to build up while the Holy
Spirit is delivering, it can stop the deliverance
If one is building up and another is tearing
down, it leaves the person feeling raped,
dismembered and confused.
Unity does not mean conformity in a traditional
sense. An example of conformity would be one person
being the leader, another person is a scripture
person, and etc where each stay within a niche.
Unity is taking turns with the ebb and flow of
the Holy Spirit, depending upon people’s gifts and
faith at that moment. It is like the geese in a V
formation. While one is in the lead position for a
moment, the others are either backing what is being
said, or listening to the Holy Spirit for the next
step or layer. As the first person is done, when
under the unction of the Holy Spirit, the next
person shares and so on. It may bounce back and
forth like a basketball, but what is important is
not who is speaking, but that the theme stays fairly
consistent in the overall goal of dismantling the
Learn to share your portion, then hold back and
let another share. While you are waiting, listen to
the theme and how your gift will fit in.
A TIME TO WAIT ON THE LORD
Deliverance comes in layers exactly like labor
Try not to rush the process.
Be comfortable with spaces of tongues, soaking,
rest or quiet.
In those times, ask the Lord to reveal the next
layer or the next step towards freedom. Learn to
wait upon Him, expecting another layer to surface.
These resting places can be several minutes
long, then the pressure will begin to build up
within the person once more. And they will begin to
show signs of stress.
