Along with going to fortune tellers these last days false prophets are the same thing! They are RELIGIOUS SORCERERS! -Admin-

According to Romans 14:11For it is written, [As] I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.Romans 14 verse 11, every knee will bow to the name of Jesus Christ. However, we have had some occasions where deliverance didn't work. Obviously, the authority of Christ is perfect, but on the human side there are certain conditions that prohibit progress when dealing with demonic activity in people's lives.
- The first major hindrance to deliverance from demons is UNFORGIVENESS. According to Matthew 18, unforgiveness releases "tormentors" - demonic spirits who use unforgiveness as an open door and nesting ground for activity. Since unforgiveness releases the tormentors, it is counterproductive to address spirits who have a right to be present. Until unforgiveness is dealt with, progress won't be possible.
- The second hindrance to deliverance is the HUMAN WILL. Some people say with their mouths they want help, but really don't. If an individual doesn't want the intruders evicted, they will stay. You can't cast out your "friends." You must want the demons to leave. The human will is a powerful thing. When we turn our wills toward God, renouncing the devil and refusing to host his presence in our lives, God will honor our wills and work with us by His Spirit evicting evil spirits and their effects on us.
- The third hindrance to deliverance is FEAR. Some people come to us so fearful of the experience that they block and resist the very thing they want and need. Others are fearful of exposure. They feel sure the Holy Spirit is going to lay out for public scrutiny every sinful or despicable thing they have ever done, and they will be subjected to public humiliation. The Holy Spirit will not address any issue a person is unwilling to examine. Again, God honors an individual's will and operates in an atmosphere of love and gentleness.
- HIDDEN SIN is the fourth hindrance to deliverance. Hidden sin is unrepentant sin which will block the power of the Holy Spirit as He ministers freedom to those who are demonically bound. The Spirit of God only works in an atmosphere of truth and purity.
Examples of unrepentant sins are drug addictions, abortion, murder, witchcraft. Many people have dabbled in witchcraft UNknowingly. They went to carnival fortune tellers or read horoscopes in the newspaper. As innocent as all of that appears, it is still witchcraft.
Any indulgence in witchcraft blocks the ministry of deliverance. It is wise to check for witchcraft prior to any ministry. The enemy is in his territory and will not move unless a person has a sincere, repentant heart!
