Midnight Call,

I have been going to deliverance services for over three years. I have been confused by the teaching of a woman named Jean West, who says Christians can have demons that alter one’s life. I need to be filled with God’s Holy Spirit; that I know. But, I’ve been going to these deliverances, and my life has become a living hell! I do mean about with things only seen in ugly, horrible movies. This is something no one should go through. God is not showing up to help. I just keep standing in faith for a miracle.

Arno's Answer:

Colossians 1:13 reads, “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” Note: this is written in the past tense, “hath delivered.” That’s a done deal. No need to go to any deliverance ministry. Verse 14 says, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins” (read also 2 Corinthians 1:10 and Romans 6:17).

Nowhere in Scripture did the disciples or the early believers pray for the filling of the Holy Spirit; it always occurred after they were powerless in themselves. In Acts 4, they were forbidden to preach in the name of the Lord. What was their prayer? “That with all boldness [we] may speak thy word.” As a result, we read in verse 31, “They were all filled with the Holy Ghost.”
