7 steps for Retaining Deliverance 

1. Put on the Whole Armour of God The Christian’s 
spiritual armour is set forth in Eph. 6:10-18. There 
are seven pieces of armour: (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 of salvation” for the guarding of your thought 
life. Most demons seeking to re-enter assail the 
thoughts. Become watchful of any thoughts 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 
spiritual thoughts. (See Phil. 4:8). Resist the devil at the 
first sign of his attack. 

2. Confess Positively Negative confessions 
characterize demonic influence. Positive confession 
is faith expressed. Confess what God’s Word says. Any 
other confession will open the door for the enemy. 

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY 
unto this mountain, 

Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and 

shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those 
things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall have 
whatsoever he SAITH. Mark 11:23 

3. Stay in the Scripture 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 a cleansing agent (Eph. 
5:25,26); it is a two-edged sword, laying bare the heart 
(Heb. 4:12); it is food for the spirit (I Pet. 2:2; Matt. 4:4). 
No person can long maintain deliverance apart from 
the Word of God as a primary factor in his life. 

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of 
the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor 
sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in 
the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day 
and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the 
rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his 
season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever 
he doeth shall prosper. Psalm 1:1-3 

4. Crucify the Flesh. Take up your cross daily and 
follow Jesus. (Luke 9:23). Break old habit patterns set 
up in league with evil spirits. If fleshly appetites, 
desires and lusts are not brought to the cross, a way for 
demons to return will be left open. (Gal. 5:19-21,24) 

5. 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 
instruments, clapping the hands, etc. Pray in the Spirit 
(in tongues) and also in the understanding (I Cor. 

14:14). “Pray without ceasing” (I Thess. 5:17). 

6. 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 of Christ. Desire spiritual gifts and 
yield to their operation through you within the body of 
Christ. (See: I Cor. 12:7-14). Keep yourself under 

7. 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’s lies. 

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall 
be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Eph. 

NOTE: Doing these seven things will insure that your 
“house” (life) is filled after having been cleansed. No 
demon will be able to return much less bring any 
others in with him. If a spirit should trick you and 
regain entrance, see that he is cast out as soon as 
possible, either by yourself or with the help of other 
believers. If other areas of demonic activity in your life 
are subsequently brought to light, seek deliverance, 

Jesus has made possible complete deliverance. Walk in 
daily deliverance. Do not settle for anything less! 

For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to 
God through the death of His Son, it is much more 
(certain), now that we are reconciled that we shall be 
saved (daily delivered from sin’s dominion) through His 
(resurrection) life. Romans 5:10, Amplified.

    i am confused by the title of the article but admit i havnt read it. Rom 5:17 ‘For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)’

    1 Cor 15:57 ‘But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.’
    We are being trained to reign in a war that Christ has already won, by faith appropriating His victory in our circumstances.

    His victory and our entering into it are combined as in the following verses:-
    Rom 8:37 ‘We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.’
    Phil 4:13 ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’
    Rev 12:11 ‘They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb.’
    2 Cor 2:14 ‘Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ.’

    We will never experience victory by trusting in ourselves, and God never gives us victory unless we enter into the victory by exercising the faith He supplies.

    1 Tim 6:12 ‘Fight the good fight of faith’ by having faith in the good news that ‘it is finished’ and as we enter into the power of it we experience HIS victory. …………. 2 Peter 1:3 ‘as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,’
    Apostles never taught deficiency or spiritual codependency or maintaining the POSITION of deliverance; we’re complete in Christ in the DELIVERED ONE.

      Charles Page this is your answer. Matthew 12: 43-45). (12:43. ) when the unclean spirit goes out of a man. He goes through duh places, seeking rest , and finds none. (44) Then he says , I will return to my house from which I Came. , and when he comes , he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. (45) Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself , and they enter and dwell there : and the last state of that man is worse than the first, So shall it also be with this wicked generation. (N K J V). It means if you get saved , or have a demon. And the demon is cast out. And you don’t ask The Lord to come into your heart and be Lord of your life. The same as a demon coming out. But you didn’t invite the Lord to come in and live. Your inside is clean when Jesus cast the demon out. But you never did invite the Lord in to live. The demon will come back , the demon finds it all clean. He will go and find seven more , that’s more wicked than he was. So they all enter in. And the last state of the man is worse than it was at first.

    It is saying when Adam and Eve dined in the Garden Of Essen. One man , Adam dined by eating of the tree , that God told him not to. He ate any way. One man Adam brought sin into the world. But through One Man Jesus Christ. Through His death and Resurrection.by Grace and belief in Him. Brought Salvation , to anyone who would receive Him. He brought Salvation into w world. For every human being who would receive Him.
