Rejection are a feeling or sense of being unwanted, and feel as though no one loves you. With our society today, mothers working, divorce, etc. many children suffer with rejection.
Isaiah 54:6 “For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a youthful wife, when you were refused,” says your God.
There is a type of wound which is hard to bear. Prov. 18:14 “The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity, but a wounded spirit who can bear?”
Rejection can come in the wound of a child
If you were not planned and the mother had stress or resents, that child will be born with a spirit of rejection.
If a child conceived out of marriage, the child can be born with a spirit of rejection. Not only that, the child will be born with a bastard’s curse going back ten years.
If a woman is raped and gets pregnant and resents the child being born, the child will be born with a spirit of rejection.
Rejection can come in Later in Life
If a mother or father has favoritism with one of the children, then the other child will receive a spirit of rejection.
Rejection can come into a child depending on the circumstances such as divorce, abandonment, etc. Many variables can
How to Overcome Rejection – Not Able To Accept Love
Someone with a spirit of rejection, feels on the outside. They look around and see everyone receiving blessings but feel unworthy and feel as though God also rejected them. This is a lie from the pit of hell.
Rejection can make a person feel alone even when around people such as church, etc. Many people who have a spirit of rejection, also self-pity – feeling sorry for themselves or that nobody understands them. Depending on the depth of the spirit of rejection, many time battle with depression, moods of gloominess and despair.
When that feeling of rejection comes over them, these people pull back or sometimes reject the other people around them to not be rejected. It is a spirit of fear of rejection working on them. They felt rejected so many times the wound is deep and painful. Other times, the person becomes hard and believes they don’t need people and so the walls built around their heart to protect themselves from the deep pain of rejection. They can appear very hard and very guarded. These people are being set up for witchcraft and rebellion against the Lord through self sufficiency.
The spirit of rejection is a spirit working on a person for them to believe they are rejected from people or God, unaccepted to suicide.
How to Have Harmony In the Home – Husband is the Spiritual Leader
To have authority you submit under authority. This is a principle which governs relationships within the home. Husband is the spiritual leader and has authority in Christ when under authority. The wife has authority when under her husband’s authority.
The authority breaks down a home when you break chain of authority. That is when the husband is not subject to Christ or wife not willing to submit according to God’s word then opens the door for spiritual attack.
Unfortunately, when out-of-order, disorder, disharmony and rebellion manifest through your children. Not only that but sickness and disease.
Jesus had authority under the authority of the Father (John 10:30) as being one like a marriage you become one. There is harmony when everyone knows their place and authority.
Second, the Father required that all men should honor the Son (John 5:23). Jesus was given authority over all creation. The Father promoted Jesus and established Jesus over all creation.
If God did that, should the husband promote, set up and honor his wife over the home? The husband is the spiritual leader and should make sure the children honor the wife’s position and now allow rebellion and disrespect but also praise the wife and esteem her.
“No head can function without a neck to hold it up; and no man can truly be the head of his home without voluntary submission and support of his wife.” quoted by Derek Prince
The wife should not have to seek her own honor or set up her own place. When the wife feels honored and respected and praised, she does not fight for recognition or independence since the home is in harmony. It is when it gets out of harmony, that the wife fights for recognition.
The husband is the spiritual leader and should create at atmosphere of rest and security for the wife so that she can be in harmony. When the husband is in harmony with Jesus, then the wife and children are all in harmony with peace and rest instead of strife and fighting then it brings honor to the husband. Not only that, it keeps the demonic out of the house. The husband is the protector and the demonic should not go pass him in how he sets up the house.
If the house is out-of-order or in disharmony, then the children will manifest rebellion, strife, etc. but also are subject to disease such as ADD, Learning Disabilities, etc. Why, because the house is out-of-order and chaos enters the home under the husband lines up correctly as well as the wife.
When the wife is bitter and resentful, it shows the husband is falling in his responsibilities toward her. Jesus said “My father is greater than I” (John 14:28). Jesus did not fight the recognition and maintained the unity within the Godhead.
The wife is one with the husband – and also equal with him – God calls her to give herself to her husband for the sake of the unity. If she refuses, there again, is the breakdown of unity in the home and disorder will result.
A man cannot be the head of the house until the wife yields to his authority. Both are subject to Jesus as the head of the household.
Men, honor your wifes and give them praise and respect.
Women, honor your husband’s position, give him respect and honor.
Be Not Deceived and Learn Methods of Discernment to determine if bad or not:
This is what I use to measure as a method for discernment to not be deceived by others:
Who was the founder of this modality?
What was his/her spirituality?
What culture did it come out of?
What were their beliefs?
Who is their God or gods?
What is the message or true meaning?
Another way to learn methods of discernment is to study your word, read it and memorize the scripture. Also, if you ever get a check in your spirit, don’t ignore it. Don’t trust everything your pastor does. If you don’t learn methods of discernment you will end up being deceived and opening the door to a demonic world that can hurt you.
I know that Jesus warned us about deception and being deceived through God’s Word. Listed below are discernment scriptures:
Romans 16:18 “For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”
How to Maintain Your Deliverance and Keep My Freedom Out after Spiritual Warfare Prayer Breaking Demonic Strongholds
EIGHT STEPS TO 8RS (Renewal of Your Mind) – Breaking Strongholds in your life
How to Maintain your deliverance and keep Healed and Cleansed Heart and the Enemy Out and Walking in Health and Staying Delivered. It is a sanctification process to renew the mind. It is putting the Word of God in practice to keep your healing and deliverance. It is also casting down imaginations that are not from God according to 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 ***
“4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”. If you have a thought that does not reflect love, then cast down the vain imagination.***
Recognize – you must recognize the problem and the enemy.
Responsibility – You must take responsibility for what you recognize.
Repent – You must repent to God for participating with what you recognize.
Renounce – You must make what you recognize, your enemy and renounce it.
Remove – Get rid of it once and for all.
Resist – When it tries to come back resist it.
Rejoice – Give God thanks for setting you free.
Restore – Help someone else get free.
Recognize every thought comes to you comes from some kingdom. Is it accusation, guilt, shame, rejection, etc. or is it love.***
We don’t have to remember each and every sin and we don’t have to get back in time to relive each moment to be healed. As the Lord peels our onions, we can recognize them as they come to mind. We just have to recognize the SIN in our lives envy, jealousy, etc. When the Lord reminds us of more of these sins, and then simply repeats the process of the 8 R’s.***
You must have discernment distinguishing good and evil.***
You must not be afraid of evil. Evil is not more powerful than God!***
When breaking strongholds in your life, we must have knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge ties the past to the present but Wisdom take the present and move it into the future.***
2 Corinthians 10:4-6 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.***
What does it mean bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of christ? It means anything that is not of God’s character, you need to cast that thought down and don’t become one with it. Do not agree with the spirit of darkness.***
We react to every thought that comes into our minds. It changes the chemicals in our mind. We need to learn renewed in my minds and freed from strongholds.***
Taking Responsibility regardless how much abuse you have had you are still responsible for your sin. If someone hurts you, it is your responsibility to forgive him or her. The enemy will try to get you to replay that hurt over and over in your head creating a nasty demonic stronghold. Again don’t replay it and take responsibility and forgive by casting down imaginations of unforgiveness.***
We can change from glory to glory***
No excuse, no denials***
The buck stops here***
There is no way out***
Psalms 51:2-4 2Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. 3For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. 4 Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge.***
Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.(***
Repent: I recognize sin and taken responsibility for it and I’m choosing to turn from it. I let it go.***
We have to be the one who repents (change of heart) for the sin.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Exekiel 18:30 Theefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, everyone according to his ways, saith the Lord God.
Nehemiah 9:2 And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins,***
Renounce (he was renouncing it very clearly) Paul did not want to sin.***
Fall Out of agreement Hate the sin, but love the sinner! Even if it is just a mustard seed of love! Again casting down imaginations that do not line up to God’s way.***
There are only 2 worlds “Good and Evil” God will not share us with evil!***
We have to take on the mind of Christ and see ourselves as God see us. We need to have appointed of reference. We must know the love of God for us. If we don’t know, we will self-destruct***
Take the log out of our own eye before we ever attempt to take the stick out of another’s eye.***
We must develop a perfect hatred for the evil on our lives.***
Love ourselves, but hate the evil.***
Love our neighbor, but hate the evil.***
Separate others and ourselves from sin!***
Romans 7:15-25 15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.***
I Corinthians 10:20-22 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrificed, they sacrificed to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?***
Remove it: remove the temptation or remove the sin such as rejection, etc.: Casting down arguments. Casting down the demonic spirit of bitterness and choosing to be a doer of the word.***
We must break all soul ties with those who are in bondage with us in order to get rid of the temptation to keep sinning.***
It’s not a game of confession, sin, confession we must be serious about getting rid of the sin in our lives.***
We must avoid and stay away from those places that normally lead to sin bars, shopping areas, – any place that does not help you spiritually.***
We must resolve sin and we aren’t to exist at the same place at the same time We must remove it and it has to go!***
Mathew 4:1-5 1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread. 4 But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 7 Jesus said to him, It is written again, You shall not tempt the LORD your God. 8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me. 10 Then Jesus said to him, Away with you, Satan! For it is written, You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.***
Resist it: – Accusation will try to come back so resist it. That is why we need to discern good and evil. The Devil gives afflictions.***
“Hebrews 5:13-14 “13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Again resist and cast down the thought that is not from God. If it does not speak love then it is a thought projecting in your mind to get you to agree with it.***
The enemy is going to try to get you to replay the bitterness or hurt so that He can come back like a flood. Delivered people are given obligations for their deliverance. They must fill their hearts with the Word of God, must renew their minds, must change their ways. If they do these things – as many do, so relieved are they to be free from the darkness – there is no reason why they can’t stay free. As the Son has made them free.***
Draw neigh to God and He will draw neigh to us.***
We can’t strong arm the enemy***
This is a continuous work, but it is worth it Health and wellness will be normal!***
Obedience is better than sacrifice!
I Peter 5:6-9 6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.***
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to god. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.***
Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he sayeth, I will return unto my house whence I came out.***
Also see I Samuel 15:22-23***
REJOICE thanksgiving is thanking God for what he has done. Praise is a warfare tool:***
Have an attitude of Gratitude***
Thank Him for every victor***
Keep positive glass half-full thinking***
Take your peace and not Torment***
Isaiah 35:1 Give him thanks that pieces of dust like us can be redeemed for his glory.”***
Psalm 97:12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the rememberance of his holiness.”***
RESTORE We need to get involved and become proactive. Help someone else get free. Those you love, instructing those sinners that are separated from the refreshing of the Lord.***
Healing will come faster when we take our eyes off ourselves and share what the Lord is doing in your life.***
Isaiah 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.***
Isaiah 58:7-12 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward. 9Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: 11And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.***
Galatians 6:1-2 1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.***
1 Corinthians 12:25-26 25That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.***
Psalms 15:1-3 1Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 2He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 3He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.***
Fruit of Rejection or Different Diseases that Come out of Rejection:***
Being a perfectionist in to performance and works to be accepted by others, God or self.***
False Burden Bearing – helping others to feel better about yourself.***
Loneliness and isolation***
Loniness leads to misery***
Then it leads to self-pity saying “no one understands me.”***
Self-pity leads to depression – Moods of gloominess that settle down all over you. Everything feels dark and heavy.***
Next, it leads to hopelessness – I may as well give up! Nothing is going to work.”***
Hopelessness leads to death or suicide. Our heart can get so heavy that we literally bring on death. Suicide is more radical. It comes with statements like: “I might as well end it all! What’s the use of living? There’s nothing to live for.”***
As you can see, rejection can literally take away your life if you don’t deal with it. It may be a seemingly slow process, but you can’t allow it to progress and take the life you were given to glorify God. Satan wants you to give up so that you are not used by God.***
Prayer to Break the Legal Rights of the Demons – Spiritual Warfare Prayer – Breaking Demonic Strongholds
This this prayer out loud.
Breaking Demonic Strongholds
Father, In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, I now approach Your throne in a time of great need, in time of an extreme emergency.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, as You already know, I have demons attacking me from the outside, and possibly from the inside of my being. I know why they are in my life. I have done some really bad and evil things in my life. I have horribly transgressed against both You and all of Your basic laws and commandments with the sins that I have personally committed against You.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I first want to say to You that I am really sorry for doing all of these bad and evil things against You. There is no excuse for the kind of behavior that I have exhibited over the years. But Father, I now want to take a strong stand. I do not want any more part of this kind of evil and wicked lifestyle. I know now that You are My only hope and My only salvation to be able to deliver me from the demonic bondage I now find myself enslaved in as a result of crossing over into these kinds of heavier sins.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I ask that You please have mercy on my soul, and that You please forgive me for all of the sins and atrocities that I have personally committed against You under the blood that Your one and only Son Jesus Christ has personally shed for me on the cross.
1. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I now want to formally confess out all of the bad, evil, and sinful things I have personally done against You. Father, I now confess to you the following things as being sins and extreme abominations in Your sight:
My involvement in drugs.
My involvement in sex, fornication, unnatural and unholy sex acts â€“ such as homosexual acts and thoughts, and being involved in a swingers type lifestyle.
My use of all kinds of pornography.
My past adulterous affairs and activities.
All of my past thefts and covetousness.
All of my envy and jealousy that I have ever shown against anyone, and all of my lying and deceit that I have ever been involved in.
All of the pride, impatience, hate and rage that I have ever shown or manifested over the years.
All of my involvement in some of the occult arts such as witchcraft, invocation of demon spirits, and tarot cards.
All of the times that I have personally cursed You and prayed to other false gods.
Breaking most of Your 10 commandments to one degree or another.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I now know, without any shadow of a doubt, that all of the above activities were evil, heinous sins and abominations in your sight. I am so sorry for going this far against You.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of NazarethI know that Your Son Jesus Christ has died for all of my sins. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I now ask that You please forgive me for every single one of the these sins and transgressions that I have personally committed against You. Let the Blood of Your Most Holy Son Jesus Christ completely wash away every ounce of stench, every ounce of each one of these sins that have been committed against You.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you tell me in Your Word, that if I am willing to confess my sins and agree to repent, that You will fully forgive me of my sins and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I now ask that You please forgive me for of all of my sins that I have personally committed against You through the blood that Your Son Jesus Christ has personally shed for me on the cross. I now believe that all of my sins have been completely forgiven and completely washed away by the Blood of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I now want to agree to also renounce every single one of the above sins.

Father, in Jesus name, I now officially renounce every single one of the above sins and transgressions that have been committed against You.
Breaking Demonic Strongholds: If you were raped, say this part 3
3. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the next thing I need to take care of is when my father raped me when I was a young child. I now know that what he did was evil and wrong in Your sight. However, I will choose not to hold any unforgiveness towards him.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I choose with my own free will to fully forgive him for what he did to me when I was a young child. My father and the judgment on his life will now fall into Your hands, not mine. I hold no hate or animosity towards him.

4. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I now believe that all of my sins, transgressions, and abominations against You have been fully forgiven by You under the shed blood of Your Son Jesus Christ.

Father, in Jesus name, I now want to personally come against each one of these legal rights myself â€“ operating under Your authority and Your anointing to be able to do so.
5. Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I also want to reaffirm with you as I have done the other day, that I have now fully surrendered my body, my soul, my spirit, and my entire life into Your hands. I now ask that You place me into Your perfect will for my life.

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I now belong to You, and You alone. You, and You alone, are my Rock and my Salvation. I will look to no other. My life is now totally in Your hands. Father, from this moment on, I will fully follow You and fully serve You for the rest of my eternal life.
The Bible says, “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty…..” Matthew 12:43-44
Don’t let the enemy gain reentry into your life. We he comes seeking rest, Put out your “NO VACANCY” sign! Keep your house filled! Here are some practical steps to take to be sure, you are filled when he comes.
How Healing Lost: How do you keep your house filled and/or protected (you are the temple of the Holy Spirit)?:
1. Pay attention to your thought life especially thoughts of the past. The past should stay in the past.
What does that mean? Continue to look at the promises of God – He Came to Heal All Diseases Ps. 102:2. Some people reverse this. Their faith waxes weak while they look at their symptoms and forget the promises of God. God’s Word is the only solid basis for our faith. But the enemy, after you get healed, will throw symptoms and you cannot look at the symptoms and allow doubt to come back in that God healed you. The enemy throws symptoms to get your eyes off of Christ so that you will loose faith and look at the symptoms instead of the Lord. You stand on the Word that Jesus is the Healer and that you’re healed.
Reasons Healing Lost: We will miss or loose our healing if we allow our symptoms to hinder us from expecting what His Word promise is.
Hebrews 11:1 faith is the things not seen. Symptoms are not eternal but God’s Word is eternal and alive to do what it says to do. Spiritual Warfare is not believing those symptoms but believing God’s Word that Christ died on the cross for our salvation and sickness and disease. So stand and believe without wavering.
2. Why Healing Lost: Make sure you are right with God. Our redemptive blessings are conditional after we hear the Gospel. Jesus said repent ye and believe the gospel. Jesus great commandment has to do with relationships with God, others and self. Check to see if you have any bitterness towards anyone, are you in fear and out of faith, etc. Disease comes from separation and separation opens the door for the enemy to inflict. James says to confess your faults to one another…. that ye might be healed. If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lod will not hear me.
3. Areas you are weak, memorize specific scriptures to fight the fiery darts! Example: I used to project fear for tomorrow. I learned to cast my cares to the Lord according to 1 Peter 5:7. Where do fiery darts come from? Jesus withstood Satan’s temptation by using scripture. The word is a mirror to the soul (James 1:22-25); it is a lamp unto the feet for guidance( Psalm 119:105); it is two-edge sword laying bare the heart (Heb 4:12); it is food for the spirit (1 Pet 2:2; Matt 4:4) No person can keep up deliverance apart from the Word of God as a primary cause in his life!
4. Put on the Whole Armour of God The Christian’s spiritual armour is set forth in Ephesians 6:10-18. There are seven pieces: (1) Loins girt about with truth (2) The breastplate of righteousness (3) Feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (4) The shield of faith (5) The helmet of salvation, (6) The sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God, and (7) Praying in the spirit! Pay special attention to the helmet for guarding your thought life. Most demons seeking to re-enter assail the thoughts. Become watchful of any thought that could be considered negative; they are from the enemy. Separate their thoughts from your own. Refuse the thoughts they give you and replace them with positive thoughts. (See Phil 4:8) Resist the devil at the first sign of attack.
5. Make Positive Confessions – Power in the Tongue brings life or death to others or to self. You can self curse or curse others with your words. Are you a negative person? Do you see the world half empty instead of half full? Negative confessions are lack of faith but doubt and unbelief which characterize demonic influence. Positive confessions are faith expressed. Any other confession will open the door for the enemy. (See Mark 11:23). Do you speak negative words over your spouse, your children and so on? It is more than positive confession but it is trusting and believing in God’s Word and then confessing it. It has to be true in your heart – a reality of truth.
6. Know Who You Are In the Kingdom of God! Why Did God Create You? Who are you in the Kingdom of God? What is your Purpose? What is your calling? What is your destiny? What is the Body of Christ’s purpose? What is the Lord wanting to restore? Coming Soon!
7. Crucify the Flesh Take up your cross daily and follow Jesus. (Luke 9:23) Break old habit patterns. If fleshy appetites, desires and lusts are not brought to the cross a way for demons to return will be left open (Gal 5: 19-24). From Romans to Jude is all about Santification. What is Sanctification? Definition of Santification:
Sanctification is that continuous operation of the Holy Spirit, by which the holy disposition imparted in regeneration is maintained and strengthened.
8. Be Willing To Go Into The Fire!
What are areas you are not able to still walk through? Make a list to discuss. See notes!
9. Develop a Life of continuous Praise and Prayer Praise silences the enemy. Praise is not an attitude of heart; praise is the expression unto God of thankfulness, adoration and joy by speaking, singing, shouting, dancing, leaping, playing musical entrustments, clapping the hands, etc. Pray in the sprit (in tongues) and also in the understanding. (1 Cor 14:14). Pray without ceasing (1 Thess 5:17). Get a journal and write down your victories, blessings, etc. This is helpful when times are tough. Coming Soon!
10. Maintain a Life of Fellowship and Spiritual Ministry! It is the sheep that wanders from the flock that is most endangered. Find and fulfill your function within the body. (See 1 Cor 12:7-14) Keep yourself under authority. Coming Soon!
11. Commit Yourself Totally to Christ Determine that every thought, word and action will reflect the very nature of Christ. Abide in Christ that the fruit of the Spirit might come forth in abundance. Demon spirits are enemies of the fruit of the spirit. Faith and trust in God is the greatest weapon against the devil and his lies. (See Eph. 6:16)
12. Choosing friends who are like minded. Think of times you were influenced negatively from others who are not like minded.
Look what the Bible says about choosing friends
“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE, says the Lord. AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you. And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me, Says the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 NASBR)
“Do not be deceived: ‘Evil company corrupts good habits.’ Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.” 1 Corinthians 15:33-34
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2 NASBR)
“Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation” (1 Peter 2:12 NASBR)
“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm” (Proverbs 13:20 NASBR)
John said in 3 John 2 “Beloved, I wish above all tings that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
That means submit ourselves to God before He says “resist the devil,” because no one can successfully resist the devil until he submits himself to God.
The condition of heart that was responsible for the coming of those diseases as mentioned in Deut. 28 is not the right condition for their removal. In other words, the condition of the heart that was responsible for the curse in that day is not the condition of heart in which to come to Him for the removal of the curse in our day.
