DELIVERANCE from demonic Schizophrenia

DELIVERANCE from demonic Schizophrenia
Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

Schizophrenia is a very common problem. Some 
authorities in the field of mental illness estimate there 
may be as many as fifty million persons in the United 
States who are afflicted to some degree with 
schizophrenia, “...schizophrenics are estimated to make 
up about 50% of state psychiatric hospital admissions, 
with 300,000 new cases every year.” Some cases are 
acute while others are quite mild, requiring no 
professional treatment. Schizophrenia has remained a 
very baffling problem to mental health professionals. 
The cause and cure has remained shrouded in 
uncertainty. 

The disturbance, distortion and disintegration of 
personality known as schizophrenia or dementia 
praecox is frequently encountered by the deliverance 
minister. Almost every person who comes to us for 
deliverance is found to have varying degrees of the 
network of demon spirits which cause schizophrenia. 
The Lord has graciously given us a special revelation on 
the problem, which enables us to restore many to 
wholeness of personality. Since the revelation came to 
my wife, Ida Mae, I have asked her to write the 
remainder of this chapter. 

The Schizophrenic Revelation Ida Mae Hammond 
We were working very closely in deliverance with a 



person who did not show much improvement after 
repeated ministries. This person was very earnest 
about wanting deliverance. She loved the Lord very 
much, she believed with all her heart that deliverance 
was the answer to her problems, and she cried out to 
the Lord in desperation. She was completely 
cooperative with the ministry. Nevertheless, the over¬ 
all results were disappointing. 

Time after time we felt that the victory was gained. For 
a few days her personality would show signs of 
stability, then suddenly everything would go into 
upheaval. We would be right back where we started. 

Then one night after an especially violent upheaval I 
was awakened from sleep. The Lord was speaking 
within my spirit. The Lord said, “I want to give you a 
revelation of what is Sarah’s problem. The problem is 
schizophrenia. Now, I was not knowledgeable on the 
subject. In college I had studied some psychology - 
enough to be fam ili ar with such general terms as manic 
depressive, schizophrenia, paranoia, psychosis and 
neurosis. I reached back in my memory to recall that 
schizophrenia is sometimes referred to as “split 
personality”. The Lord gave me this definition: 
“Schizophrenia is a disturbance, distortion or 
disintegration of the development of the personality. 
You will no longer call her Sarah but ‘Sarah One’ and 
‘Sarah Two’, for she has more than one personality in 
her.” 


I was still in bed - still had sleep in my eyes - as the Lord 



continued giving the revelation. He instructed me to 
put my hands together, palms facing and with fingers 
laced together tightly. He said this represented what the 
schizophrenic nature was like. Each hand represented 
one of the dual personalities within the schizophrenic, 
neither of which was the real self. They were tightly 
interlocked. The Lord said, “Your hands represent the 
nest of demon spirits that make up schizophrenia. I 
want you to know that it is demonic. It is a nest of 
demon spirits, and they came into this person’s life 
when she was very, very young. I will show you how it 
operates.” 

New the Lord instructed me to take my hands apart 
VERY SLOWLY. As my fingers were slowly disengaged 
the Lord showed me that these demonic spirits in the 
schizophrenic must be separated, cast out and given up. 
The process requires time. It is a shock to the person to 
discover that so much of his personality is not the real 
self. He may be afraid to discover what his true 
personality is. He needs time to adjust and to fall out of 
agreement with the false demon personalities, point by 
point. He must come to loathe the schizophrenic 
personality, and fall out of agreement with it. The Lord 
recalled to my memory Amos 3:3. “How can two walk 
together except they be agreed.” 

One by one my fingers were disengaged, illustrating the 
pulling apart of the demonic personalities. (Later, each 
finger was given a demonic designation). The last two 
fingers to come apart were the middle fingers on each 
hand. The Lord showed that these fingers represent the 



core of the schizophrenic Rejection and Rebellion. When 
these are finally separated the person can consider 
himself healed - delivered and knowing who the real 
self is. 

The control demon is called “Schizophrenia” or “Double 
Mindedness”. The Bible says, “A double minded man is 
unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8). This is the 
scriptural designation of a schizophrenic. The 
Amplified translation says: 

[For being as he is] a man of two minds-hesitating, 
dubious, irresolute - [he is] unstable and unreliable and 
uncertain about everything (he thinks, feels, decides). 

The phrase translated “two minds” comes from a 
compound Greek word literally meaning “two souls”. 
The next stage of the revelation came a few weeks later. 
The Lord instructed me to draw the outline of my hands 
on paper. Then He named the fingers as various demon 
spirits and showed me how each demon sets itself up in 
the schizophrenic. The control demon of schizophrenia 
invites other demons in, in order to cause the distortion 
of the personality. Schizophrenia ALWAYS begins with 
“rejection”. It commonly begins in childhood or infancy 
and sometimes while the child is yet in his mother’s 
womb. There are many causes for rejection. Perhaps 
the child was not wanted. Or may have been the wrong 
sex desired by one or both parents. The condition in the 
home may have been unsettled. 'There are many 
“doors” that lead to rejection. 




INWARD 

1. Keeps one from giving and receiving 
love - both GOD’S & MAN’S 

2. Weds on to the world for love. 

3. Makes one tell all, seeking attention, 
punishment and correction. 

4. Includes inordinate affection for animals. 

5. With honesty at all costs. Seeking 
evidence for suspicions. 


OUTWARD 

6. Keeps one from looking at self. 

7. Disobedience and anti-submissiveness. 

8. Weds one to selfish desires. 

9. Both mental and spiritual. Seductive: 
to tempt, mislead, decoy. Delusion: a 
misleading of the mind, false belief, fixed 
misconception (as to cling to a delusion). 
In psychiatry: a false belief regarding 
the self - common in paranoia. 




Schizophrenia can be demonically inherited. Notice I 
said “demonically”. By that I mean it is not in the blood 
system, not in the genes - it is in the demons! In other 
words, demons seek to perpetuate their like kind. It is 
easiest for them to do this within a family. For example, 
suppose the schizophrenia nature is in the mother. The 
demons will pick out one or more of her children to 
feed down through. The schizophrenic mother feels 
rejection. She is the one who is primarily responsible 
for feeding love into the family. She is the one who 
touches, handles and fondles the infant. The rejection 
within herself creates problems in her relationships 
with the child. So, the child is opened for rejection by 
the mother’s instability. I repeat, schizophrenia 
ALWAYS begins with rejection. 

Now, one can have a rejection spirit and not be a 
schizophrenic. In other words, it is all in the matter of 
forming a personality. You can have a rejection spirit 
and still manage to form your own personality and be 
secure in yourself. To the contrary, the schizophrenic is 
always floundering ... “Who am I?” The identity of the 
true self is confused or lost. 

Rejection (shown on the left hand in the illustration) is 
the control demon in one of the personalities set up 
within the schizophrenic. Rejection depicts a 
withdrawn type personality. (It is a feeling within -it is 
agony within... it is a starvation of love... it is 
insecurity... it is inferiority... it is fantasy... it is 
unreality - it is all on the inside — “I don’t share in 
this.”) This is one personality the demons set up. 



The second personality set up by the demons is 
“Rebellion”. (See the middle finger on the right hand in 
the illustration). When a child does not have 
satisfactory love relationships in life he grows up being 
unable to feel and share in love relationships. A 
rebellion sets in. He begins to fight for love. Or he 
lashes out at those who have starved him of love. 
Rebellion asserts itself in stubbornness, self-will and 
selfishness. Here is another personality. This one is not 
inward and withdrawn. It is aggressive and lashing out 
in anger, bitterness, resentment, hatred and retaliation. 
The schizophrenic is literally under these two opposite 
powers. He can switch from one type personality to the 
other in a moment’s time. 

The Lord showed me that I was to refer to the 
schizophrenic person as “Sarah One” and “Sarah Two” - 
the “Sarah One” being the real person, and the “Sarah 
Two” the schizophrenic personality which has two 
sides to it. Therefore, there are really three 
personalities involved - the real personality, the 
rejection personality and the rebellion personality. In 
thirty minutes time one may see all three personalities 
manifested. Naturally, this brings much confusion to 
the person himself as well as to others around him. 

The real person is neither of the “hands”. The “Real 
Self” is shown in the illustration between the arms, at 
the bottom. The demons have not permitted the real 
self to develop. The schizophrenic does not know his 
real self. When the schizophrenic begins to be 
delivered, the real self must have Jesus. Jesus must start 



growing in the person, developing that personality, and 
making it what He wants it to be. This is why the 
schizophrenic deliverance requires time - sometimes 
several months or even a year, or longer. The 
deliverance must work in balance with the 
development of the “Real Self”. It cannot be rushed, for 
there is nothing for the person to fall back upon. If 
every demon in the schizophrenic person were 
suddenly cast out he would feel totally lost. Identity 
with the “Real Self” requires time. As the schizophrenic 
nature is knocked out the true personality must come 
forth to replace it. 

Let me illustrate what can happen when a 
schizophrenic is in the process of deliverance. He may 
be learning submission to authority. He is faced with a 
test. There is a situation where he is required to be 
submissive. He is not in the habit of being submissive. 
What will he do? Will he fall back into rejection... go to 
his room? ...cover his face? ...refuse to talk to anyone? 
Or, will he fall back into rebellion... expressing 
anger? ...becoming defiant? ...showing stubbornness? 

Or, will he permit the nature of Jesus to come forth 
...cooperating? ...yielding to authority? ...becoming 
submissive? The decision is his. He must be willing to 
fall out of agreement with the demons and to break old 
habit patterns. The “Real Self” must have become 
strong enough in Christ to carry through on the right 
decision. 

On the illustration you will see a swirl at the top, 



between the two hands. This represents a “hurricane”. 
The schizophrenic person continually creates “storms” 
around himself. He is caught in these storms, and other, 
must relate to what is happening. Notice that some of 
the arrows also carry swirls or “hurricanes”. If the 
person trying to relate is also unstable he brings his 
storm into the schizophrenic’s storm. You then have a 
storm within a storm. Other arrows are straight. These 
depict persons who are stable and can relate to the 
“hurricane” in a stable way. Such a person can engage 
the storm without being damaged or scarred. He is not 
captured by the turmoil. The deliverance minister must 
be able to come in as a straight arrow. 

These times of storm cause the root of bitterness to 
form (see right hand) and to be driven deeper and 
deeper. 

Now, let us see what the other fingers on the left hand 
represent. The “ring finger” is designated lust. The Lord 
showed me that this demon “weds” a person to the 
world for love. Lust is rooted in rejection. If one has not 
received satisfactory love through the normal channels 
of life, the carnal nature will begin to search for its kind 
of love-sensual love. Thus, the door is opened for the 
demon of lust to enter. A companion spirit in this group 
is fantasy lust which may cause the person to imagine 
he is some great lover of the motion picture world or to 
fantasy sexual experiences as a prelude to overt acts. 
The harlotry spirit in women may first manifest itself in 
dress and provocativeness. Sexual perversions 
represent extreme attempts to overcome rejection. 



Sexual experiences, real or imaginary, can never satisfy 
the need for genuine love. They are the devil’s 
substitutes for real love and leave a person ridden with 
frustration and guilt. 

The little finger on the left hand represents insecurity 
and inferiority. This is yet another manifestation of 
rejection. The person who has a deep sense of rejection 
feels insecure and inferior. 

The index finger on the left hand is “self-accusation”. 
This demon causes a person to turn against himself and 
tears down his sense of personal worth. In most cases 
we have found “self accusation” coupled with a 
“compulsion to confess. For example, if the person has 
fallen into immorality he cannot rest until he has 
confessed his wrong-doing. He usually confesses to 
those who should show him the most love. He is driven 
to do this in an effort to “shock” others into giving him 
forced attention and thereby find a substitute for love. 

Now, let us move to the right hand in the illustration. 
The middle finger in the illustration is designated 
“rebellion”. As we have seen, rebellion identifies one of 
the false personalities set up by the demons. This group 
of demons may be considered compensating spirits for 
“rejection”. Rebellion is the opposite of rejection. One is 
expressive and turbulent, the other is withdrawn and 
insecure. 


The ring finger on the right hand represents self-will. 
This demon “weds” a person to selfish desires. This 



opens the way for stubbornness, selfishness and 
unteachableness. Again, we see the compensation for 
rejection. Since the person has been rejected or fears 
rejection he is driven to pamper self... to push self. He is 
thereby trying to overcome feelings of rejection. 

The index finger is called accusation. It, too, is a 
compensating demon. It draws the attention away from 
the rejection. It seeks to eliminate a concentration on 
self by calling attention to others. The left index finger 
points at self - “I am to blame,” while the right index 
finger points at others - “You are to blame.” The 
accusation demon opens the door for companion spirits 
of judgmentalism. 

The little finger on the right hand is self-deception. Its 
companions are delusion, self-seduction and pride. 

These three spirits of “self” inflate pride. Pride is 
another compensation for rejection. One who feels 
rejected wants to feel important. The spirit of delusion 
comes along and says, “You are REALLY somebody”; 
‘You are a spiritual giant!”, or some other kind of giant. 
The ego that has been wounded appears to be given a 
boost. But it is all demonic. It only leads to greater 
frustration and disappointment. 

In one case of ministry, the spirit of self deception had 
convinced a thirteen year old girl that she was 
nineteen. She took on another name to go with her 
other person. She attempted to think, talk and act like 
an older girl. She was pushed beyond her abilities and 
her normal maturity. It added greatly to her 



oppression. 

Through the revelation the Lord showed how the 
thumbs represent the “Paranoid” phase of 
schizophrenia. Part of it is represented in the left 
thumb because it is rooted in rejection. On the rejection 
side are spirits of jealousy and envy. Those who are 
deficient in reciprocal love relationships become 
jealous and envious of those who do experience 
satisfying love. On the rebellion side are spirits of 
distrust, suspicion, fears and persecution. There is 
another demon in this later group and it is called 
“Confrontation with honesty at all cost'. Suspicion and 
distrust build up in the person until he is compelled to 
confront the other person. After the confrontation the 
pressure dies down within him for awhile. But it leaves 
the attacked person to handle his wounds. The person 
acting under the influence of paranoid demons is quite 
insensitive as to how many wounds he causes, yet he is 
super-sensitive to every offense toward himself. 

The revelation portrayed in the fingers and thumbs has 
proved to be infallible, as judged by numerous 
ministries with schizophrenics. There is no flaw in it. 

The demons listed down the left hand are 
representative of other spirits that are commonly found 
within the rejection side of the schizophrenia pattern. 
These will have some variations from person to person. 
The listing is suggestive rather than exhaustive. It is 
apparent in most instances that the demons listed on 
the left hand are in some way associated with the triad 
of rejection-type spirits ... rejection, fear of rejection and 



self rejection. 


The listing of demons on the right hand include control 
and possessiveness. They are directly related to 
rebellion. 

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and 
stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. I Sam. 15:23a 

This verse can be interpreted in two ways. First, I 
interpret it to mean that to God rebellion is as 
abominable as witchcraft itself. I also interpret it to 
mean that one who has a rebellious nature has the 
nature of a witch. The purpose in witchcraft is to 
control. It is the controlling of another person by 
knowingly or unknowingly employing the power of evil 
spirits. Rebellion often leads to control. 

Now, let us continue down the right hand. There is a 
“root of bitterness”. In all of life one does have conflicts. 
Things DO happen and words ARE spoken that require 
an attitude of forgiveness. Here lies the problem with 
the schizophrenic. He is unable to forgive. He has an 
unforgiving spirit. The things that happened thirty years 
ago are just as alive as they were the minute they 
happened. The root of bitterness is kept alive and out of 
it comes resentment, hatred, anger, retaliation, violence 
and murder. There can be many other demons attached 
to such a root of bitterness. 

How does the schizophrenic come out of this tangled 
mess? The three main areas to conquer are REJECTION, 



REBELLION and THE ROOT OF BITTERNESS. As these 
areas are conquered the “house” (life) must be filled by 
the giving and receiving of love, by submission to every 
valid authority and by forgiveness of all persons 
regardless of the circumstances. When these three 
areas are conquered the other related spirits lose their 
strength. Determination is necessary. The person who 
can persistently say, “I WILL BE DIFFERENT! I WILL 
NOT LET DEMONS RULE MY LIFE!” will eventually see 
victory. 

Between the hands at the bottom of the illustration is a 
little, stick figure called “The Real Self”. As the 
deliverance takes place over a period of time, “The Real 
Self” must rise up (depicted by arrows) and part the 
false schizophrenic personalities by falling out of 
agreement with all of their influence and all that they 
represent. “The Real Self” must take on the nature of 
Jesus Himself. Spiritual exercises such as Bible study, 
prayer, fasting, praise and fellowship with other 
believers is essential to a successful deliverance. These 
spiritual exercises will also accelerate the deliverance 
process as the person’s life is filled with the positive 
things of Christ Jesus. 

It is hard work for both the schizophrenic patient and 
the deliverance minister. I greatly admire 
schizophrenics who fight through to victory. I admire 
these victories above all other deliverances. The 
Schizophrenia deliverance is the deepest, most involved 
and most determined deliverance that we have 
encountered.

    I cannot tell you enough how wrong this counsel from the Hammonds is! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! How do I know? Because I read and followed this counsel from the Hammonds in 1973, –the 5 points on the hand and all–and it was false! It had devastating consequences. Perhaps it was true in that one instance, but to say that this is always the problem of schizophrenia, or that the root of schizophrenia is always rejection, etc., is dangerous! I know this from experience. I followed this counsel, trying to cast demons out of my schizophrenic mother. The Hammonds counsel did not work, there were no demons to cast out to cast out of my mother: it made my mother more paranoid & almost destroyed our relationship. Some schizophrenia is from demonic sources, but it is so wrong to say that it is always demonic. That is not a revelation from God. So much more I could say about this, but I warn against this!!!

      Casius Leonidas I agree that deliverance works when done in the right way in the right situations. But there are so many unhealthy and downright dangerous deliverance practices. I have been doing deliverance for 48 years in a variety of ways and levels. As a youth pastor at 20 years old, I was mentored in deliverance ministry by my pastor. I sat under the teaching and deliverance ministries of Derek Prince, Don Basham, Francis MacNutt, John Wimber, Lester Sumrall, and others in the early days. I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly, and as I mentioned above, I have done the good, the bad, and the ugly. There is no one size fits all formula as the Hammonds taught. So much wisdom and discernment is needed but so often not exercised.

      My name being down up there then your nam. Does that mean I have said something. I don’t have any words written by it. I think all the demons I talk about being cast out. Is the ones Jesus cast out. I know demons are real. But I have been in services where demons was thought to be. I only know of one in a service , the younger people’s service. And some older ones was in there to. They was praying for a young Persons was in there. I always thought his mind was messed up from getting hit by a car. It messed up his face. But he did have attitudes. And did seem to be a real rebellious person. I don’t know how they got started praying for him. If he ask. Or they just started praying. Some how they got started praying for him. But my daughter sad a demon came out of him and hit her as it was leaving. And hit her so hard , that it knocked her up against the wall. I gave my children to the Lord before they was ever born. And always ask God to use them. I don’t know who prayed for him. All I know is Shirley said it knocked her against the wall. I knew the boy. He was some related on my father in law first wife children. So I was use to seeing him now and then. The older people’s service was in the Sanctuary.But I don’t discuss demons much, other than Bible stories , that Jesus cast out, in the Bible. I don’t think I have ever told this before, on face book. I just wondered why my name was there. But nothing said by it. If I was mixed up in talking about demons. I have told stories that other minister told about. One was Bro John Nichols. I have all kind of confidence in this Preacher. You should hear the one I heard him tell about. I believe you need a lot of prayer and fasting for this kind of ministry.

      True deliverance has no set pattern or formula. If you can figure that part out, you have no need of the HS to lead you. No two people are alike and no two situations are the same. It’s always different.

    In Matthew 4, Jesus healed those who were ‘lunatick’ and He cast out demons. Maybe some people who are lunatick (whatever moon sickness was) were not demonized.

      No comment Troy.
      If there was a spiritual lab and you took “sample minds” from a group of believers and do a spiritual analysis do you think you will miss some of the ” personalities” mentioned?
      The Gadarenes man was completely mad..a raving insane.
      No one in that village(town) had any idea that the mind state of the victim was demonic…. until Jesus came along.
      We have a lot to learn from that.
      A persons childhood background will always affect him in later life, …
      I don’t want to completely agree with the Hammonds with what they claim was a “revelation” regarding causes of Schizo….
      I know rejection is the source and cause of many emotional afflictions…consequently a doorway to demonic influence.

      Brother Link do you believe in the casting of demons?
      It seems there is a problem in this area with you..Jezebel notwithstanding..
      Did Jesus mention ALL THE SPIRITS in His brief 3 year and a half ministry?..Not at all not only didnt He mention them He did not cast them out them OUT ALL OF THEM…
      If He said we will cast out demons in His name we have to do that.
      That we have different views(our views) on the subject doesn’t change the fact that demons exist ..and need to be cast out.

      I definitely believe there is a place for excorcism. But some Charismatics seem to attribute works of the flesh to demons. People need to be taught to not yeild to the lusts of the flesh and to obey the word of God. Blaming sin on demons can be a way of excusing people for their own sins.

      It concerns me to see others attribute certain sins or characteristics to demons when:
      1. There is no clear demonic manifestation.
      2. No revelation through spiritual gifts to identify the problem as demonic.
      3. No revelation from scripture to identify a problem as demonic.

      If an individual keeps falling into sin or faces health or other difficulties, they may need to repent, pray, recieve prayer, or be strengthened in their faith. Trying to cast out a demon when that is not the problem will not help.

      I do not see casting out evil spirits as a cure all. Flying over a city and casting out’spirits of murder’ 1. Makes a Biblically unjustifiable assumption about classification of demons and 2. Does bot remo s tge flesh expect of gatred in men’s hearts.

      If we were go try to cast out a ‘spirut if fornication’ out of a fornicator and succeeded in getting a demon put would that guarantee he not fornicate? I suspect many fornucators also fornicate because it feels good and they give in to the lusts of the flesh. And many drunkards choose to drink because tgey like to be drunk.

      I wonder if he equates what he calls ‘good’ demons’ with jin.

      Troy Day, I thought this would be a real scientific study on demons and schizophrenia, but it is pure opinion and no science. I would welcome a real scientific paper. (for instance, Dr. Candy Gunther Brown, a professor of Indiana University published a scientific study of healing in Heidi Baker’s ministry in Mozambique. Totally scientific, peer-reviewed–meaning critically evaluated by professional researchers),– and demonstrating statistical improvements and healings.) Someone in the field of psychology and psychiatry who has done a study–like F. Scott Peck,

      No, I had not seen this particular article. This is better, but I question the statement “Most scholars accept that demons can possess people and can take up physical space within a human’s body.” In my research, that is not the case. That is a pretty generic ambiguous statement. Which scholars is he referring to? Psychiatritric scholars? Exorcistic scholars? Muslim scholars? (Most likely, since the article is much about Muslim psychiatry and exorcism). Still looking for something more specific scientific statistical studies or case studies (Peck, for instance, gives case studies). I agree that some schizophrenia is demonically induced, but not all, and I question Muslim exorcism.
