Jesus never taught that Christians should cast out evil spirits from
unsaved people unless it was in conjunction in bringing them to
salvation and the new birth. Deliverance was for people who had come to
the saving knowledge of Christ. This is subject that few pastors believe
and even dare to speak about. Churches today are full of born again
people laden with demons and they donít even know it.
baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all Christians, but, and this
is a big point, you must ask for it. Healing is also available to all
believers in Christ, but just like with the baptism of the Holy Spirit,
you must ask for it. People have the choice to be set free from evil
spirits, but just like with the previous two points, you must ask for
today's society it is challenging to differentiate between unbelievers
and people who are born again. Christians are often just as depressed as
unbelievers, sickness is rampant in the churches, and Christians have
the same divorce rate as unbelievers. Christians engage in pornography,
adultery, fornication just like the world. Many believers in Christ are
bound by alcohol and other drugs. How can we be salt and light if we are
not different than the world? It is obvious that something is very wrong
with the Church of Jesus Christ.
nothing new under the sun and God has a solution to reverse the terrible
condition of His people. It involves repentance, breaking of curses and
casting out demons. This is a message that every believer in Christ
should prayerfully hear. Jesus came to set the captives free and provide
an abundant life to those who make Him their Lord and Savior. Be
diligent and search the Scriptures like the Bereans did and I promise
that God will respond to your heartís desire.
