7 Steps To Deliverance

7 Steps To Deliverance
Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

1. Honesty 

One must be honest with himself and with God if he 
expects to receive God’s blessing of deliverance. Lack of 
honesty keeps areas of one’s life in darkness. Demon 
spirits thrive on such darkness. Honesty helps bring 
them into the light. Any sin not confessed or repented 
of gives the demon a “legal right” to remain. Ask God to 
help you see yourself as He sees you and to bring to 
light anything that is not of Him. 

I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have 
I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto 
the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. 
Psalm 32:5 

Search me, 0 God, and know my heart: try me, and 
know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way 
in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 
139:23,24 

2. Humility 

This involves a recognition that one is dependent upon 
God and His provisions for deliverance. 

God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the 



humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the 
devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7 

It also involves a complete openness with God’s 
servants ministering in the deliverance. 

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for 
another, that ye may be healed. James 5:16a 

3. Repentance 

Repentance is a determined turning away from sin and 
Satan. One must hate all evil in his life and fall out of 
agreement with it. 

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 
3:3) One must loathe his sins. 

And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your 
doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall 
loathe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils 
that ye have committed. Ezekiel 20:43 

Deliverance is not to be used merely to gain relief from 
problems but in order to become more like Jesus 
through obedience to all God requires. Repentance is a 
turning from all that hinders spiritual growth, ministry 
and fellowship. Repentance requires open confession of 
all sin. It takes away the legal rights of demon spirits. 



4. Renunciation 


Renunciation is the forsaking of evil. Renunciation is 
action resulting from repentance. 

When he (John the Baptist) saw many of the Pharisees 
and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, 
0 generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee 
from the wrath to come? BRING FORTH FRUITS 
THEREFORE MEET FOR REPENTANCE. Matt. 3:7,8 

Bringing forth fruits meet for repentance involves more 
than words. It is demonstration of repentance... 
evidence that one has truly turned from his sins. For 
example, if one repents of lust he may need to destroy 
some pornographic materials. If one has repented of 
religious error he may need to completely renounce it 
by destroying all literature and items associated with 
that error. 

And many that believed came, and confessed, and 
shewed their deeds. 

Many of them also which used curious arts brought 
their books together and burned them before all men: 
and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty 
thousand pieces of silver. Acts 19:18,19 

Renunciation means a clean break with Satan and all 
his works. 



5. Forgiveness 


God freely forgives all who confess their sins and ask 
forgiveness through His Son. (See I John 1:9). He 
expects us to forgive all others who have ever wronged 
us in any way. 

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly 
Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men 
their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your 
trespasses. Matt. 6:14,15 

Willingness to forgive is absolutely essential to 
deliverance. (See Matt. 18:21-35). No deliverance 
minister can effect a deliverance unless the candidate 
has met God’s conditions. 

6. Prayer 

Ask God to deliver you and set you free in the name of 
Jesus. 

Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall 
be delivered. Joel 2:32 

7. Warfare 

Prayer and warfare are two separate and distinct 
activities. Prayer is toward God and warfare is toward 
the enemy. Our warfare against demon powers is not 
fleshly but spiritual (See Eph. 6:10-12; II Cor. 10:3-5). 
Use the weapons of submission to God, the blood of 



Jesus Christ, the Word of God, and your testimony as a 
believer. (See James 4:7; Rev. 12:11; Eph. 6:17). Identify 
the spirits, address them directly by name in a 
commanding voice, and in faith command them to go in 
the name of Jesus. Enter the battle with determination 
and assurance of victory. Christ cannot fail! He is the 
Deliverer! 

“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my 
name shall they cast out devils.” Mark 16:17a 

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and 
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and 
nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19 

“The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and MY 
DELIVERER.” Psalm 18:2a

      What I gave gathered or garnered from the few books I have read there is no consensus on the steps to be followed in casting out demons although there are common things like confession and repentance…which forms the standard
      Derek Prince has his steps to deliverance..Ida and Frank Mae have theirs, Win Worley teaches his methods, Jonas Clark has his Gene.L. Moody manual on deliverance has his steps…and a host of other deliverance ministers has their methods..steps.
      I know Dr.King will have his so is Troy Day and Joe Absher.
      Chad Macdonald steps could add to to the much neededtreasure on steps to deliverance..
      Any person in need of deliverance needs to know these steps…

      I have an absolute personal list of 3 which in it or under it will cover other steps…eg confession, repentance, renunciation, humility, etc.
      The three in brief are:
      1)Desire: one must have a strong desire to be delivered.
      2)Openness: To be very open with ones sins..however unpalatable…
      3)Abiding in the Word..Deliverance is useless unless the delivered person abides in the Word..which as Chad points out in his 7 steps, it will involve prayer and warfare…to live a holy life and be of service to God.
      Jesus said when an unclean spirit is cast of a man it goes thru dry places looking for a

      place of rest then finding none it goes back to its former house
      which is swept clean and IN OCCUPIED…
      When a demon or unclean spirit departs a replacement has to take place..immediately and that is where abiding comes in.
      It is my belief that a person who abides much in the Word is an anathema to demons….

      I don’t know if EVERYONE knows this procedure .
      Most of the times the deliverance minister will LEAD someone thru the pricedures whereas some areas e.g. repentance or humility needs A PERSONAL CONVICTION….not a routine utterance.
      Also repentance has a broad range to cover eg personal, parental, ancestral, national(?) Daniel, Ezra Nehemiah did that..What about global repentance Troy? Is there anything like that?(just musing)
      A lot of believers aren’t aware of warfare and don’t even know what it is….
      Of course without honesty there won’t be any deliverance…
