Breaking the Bonds and Setting Captives Free
Do you sometimes feel oppressed or emotionally tortured? Or feel overpowered by something "spiritual" that is hindering you, but can't seem to understand what it is? Or feel like you're carrying around excess emotional baggage and are unable to get rid of it?
These are just some of the indicators of having spiritual oppression in your life. The spirtual realm is REAL, and many things in our society influence us to have "open doors" in our lives which allow demonic forces to come in to negatively affect our thought lives, and hinder us emotionally, physically, and spiritually. These bad spirits can also be the result of curses too - generational (passed on from parent to child), self-inflicted, or even word curses spoken to or by others. Many of these bad spirits choose to remain due to unforgiveness or unconfessed sin in the person's life. Satan and his demons are defeated foes, yet they are still very active in this world, causing much harm. Though they cannot possess and control a believer who has the indwelling Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) they can cause a number of problems through oppression. Although people can be set free from demonic oppression in multiple ways, including repentance, this method directly confronts demons who still oppress a believer.
Deliverance ministry has come to Shoresh David. Our team helps congregants to be rid of demonic forces, casting them out by the authority and power of Yeshua's shed blood, and forbidden never to return. When demons have been cast away, the individual is able to think (sometimes for the first time in their lives!) without accusation or demonic influence. Follow-up is then provided to the delivered individual to discuss a renewal of thought life, making sure all "open doors" continue to be closed, and providing tips on preventing and combating future attacks. Confidentiality and trust is of utmost importance. Each deliverance session is held at Shoresh David Tampa and facilitated by Mara along with intercessors.
The purpose of deliverance is to “proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners” (Isaiah 61:1). Yeshua sent out disciples in Matthew 10:8 saying, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” The deliveree completes an interview form prior to the session. The methodology our team utilizes is to identify demonic forces at work in people's lives and then cast them out using the same Biblical principles that Yeshua and his disciples used in Luke 8:30. First the name of the demonic spirit is identified, and then it is cast away never to return. There is much power and identity as well as function in a name. In Matthew 12:28, Yeshua said “If I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.” The kingdom of God is in the midst of us! One of the major signs and gifts that God has given us is to be able to cast out demons and set people free from spiritual bondage and oppression!
