Gentle Deliverance is very effective at complete and thorough deliverance from evil based on the healing of memories. The method does not involve binding and commanding demons to leave in order to achieve deliverance form demons. Healing of memories is based on discovering core beliefs and dissolving them through listening prayer and hearing God's truth. This inner healing method is successful 99% of the time in my practice, and the emotional and interpretive components of the memory will be completely transformed by the hearing of God's word. The factual memory remains intact while the emotional memory is transformed from our carnal perspective to God's perspective.
If this emotional memory and associated core belief, and others like it, had became a home to a demonic power or presence then it's home has been completely destroyed and it is completely exposed and vulnerable. A simple prayer to invite the life of Jesus to replace the spirit is successful 99% of the time in achieving complete deliverance from that spirit.
The procedure is quick, clean and without trauma. There is no battle with demons, no naming of demons and no resulting confusion and exhaustion. Naming or invoking demons is completely avoided in this procedure and we thus avoid the danger of attracted evil powers by giving too much attention to them.
The Danger of Invoking Demons
There is a very real danger to demonic focus. An interesting report is written by Judson Cornwall in Let Us Praise, Logos, 1973, page 71. Here is my customer review of Judson Cornwall's book - Let us Praise. 5.0 out of 5 stars - Learning to Focus on God in Worship
May 2, 2002
This book is a classic. Judson Cornwall has been acknowledged as one of the first to write on public praise. This is the first of several books he wrote on worship.
Follow along as Judson learns about intimate worship. Learn from his struggles - one of the first to write about changing a congregation's attitude and practice toward intimate worship.
I especially recommend it because of an important gem. I keep coming back to reread a section, starting on page 70, where Judson is given a wakeup call. He says, "In real sorrow, I remember a dealing of God in my life."
The Lord told Judson, "My son, I would be first in your church...You do not lead your people to worship Me until you have lead them in the worship of demons."
At every service the pastoral team sensed demonic interference. At every service Judson would lead a prayer in which heads were bowed, eyes closed and Judson commanded demonic forces to leave the building. Judson was embarrassed to discover that the demonic forces accept this as worship and they come in great numbers for such attention.
He was told what to do. "Just ignore the presence of the demonic. Praise and worship Me. Center your people in praising Me, and I will deal with the demonic."
Judson did as he was told. He majored in God. His congregation used praise to break through the oppression. "From that day we never publicly acknowledged the presence of demonic forces."
The outcome: "Once the evil spirit forces were convinced that their days of being worshiped were over, once they knew that they could no longer hold our attention, they left. And they did not return."
Judson was first. Leanne Payne and John Paul Jackson have added their voices to warn of the price to pay for getting our focus off God. "Let Us Praise" is worth having on your shelf for this one important reason - to remind us not to give attention to the demonic and keep our awe, worship, prayer and praise focused on heaven.
A Christian counselling service that made a practice of commanding and binding demons at the start of every session was destroyed in the flames of spiritual attack. Even binding and commanding demons as part of spiritual warfare has resulted in tragedy as recorded by John Paul Jackson in Needless Casualties of War, Streams, 1999.
It was like I lived in a fog when I was young. That is how weak my sense of self was. A strong inner force worked below the surface. It tried to connect with God for the love and life I so much needed. See:
