6. You Can (Usually) Tell If Someone Needs Deliverance
There are not demonic spirits everywhere, and they are not the source of every problem in a person’s life. What are the indicators that a person has demons in them and will benefit from going through deliverance?
Sometimes the need is obvious even to casual or untrained observers!
Most people with severe mental illness are candidates for deliverance. A cursory review of crime logs or articles involving particularly violent or evil acts frequently point to demonic activity.
Interviews with or accounts from these individuals will frequently reference hearing voices or sensing an evil in themselves that they cannot control. Many would discount this as lies or excuses but for us it seems like a likely cause.
The devils have a mission to kill, steal and destroy and are able to put thoughts in people’s minds. If the spirits are strong and powerful inside of a person, and the Holy Spirit is not present there to counter, then anything is possible and evil acts are very possible!
For many people, however, the indicators can be much more subtle, and we touched on them in the introduction to this article.
- Are there issues or behaviors over which a person cannot get the victory? This list might include depression, anger, addictions, lust, pornography, fear or depression to start?
- Has the person had repeated counsel, tried prayer, fasting, reading the Word and declaring victory with limited success or only temporary relief?
- Has the person been diagnosed with a particular syndrome or disorder or seen psychotropic medications as providing limited help?
