Deliverance breaks the power of the enemy; walking in the Spirit breaks the pattern of sin.
WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?
There is no such ministry as a “Deliverance ministry”. This ministry is given to the entire Body of Jesus Christ. We nevertheless see special anointing on certain people for specific ministries, such as healing, deliverance, prayer for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, etc.
You will recognize this anointing by taking note of the people who cross your path. Your gift makes room for you. Is their need mainly healing or deliverance? The Lord will send people according to the anointing on your life, and so you will function in one area more than in others.
THE LIFE OF JESUS
Acts 10:38 How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and, in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by the power of the devil, for God was with Him.
When the Gospel is ministered in power, it will always result in confrontation with the kingdom of darkness.
Luke 4:14 Then Jesus went back full of and under the power of the Holy Spirit into Galilee…
The anointing confuses and terrifies demons so that they identify themselves. (Mark 1: 23-27). After the first demon was chased out of the Church, the persecution began. Deliverance is for the children of God, not for the world.
Mark 3: 14, 15 And He appointed twelve to continue to be with Him, and that He might send them out to preach and to have authority and power to heal the sick and to drive out demons.
These twelve disciples had exactly the same ministry as Jesus had on earth – to preach the Gospel and to cast out demons.
