The Great “Deliverance” Ministry Deception
[With acknowledgement to BBC Pictures Dan Murdoch and the person who took the photo on right]
On Left: Masonic/Jesuit, Protestant priest Bob Larson - this is a must-watch video, where he openly gives his masonic sign at the beginning and parades before the whole world clothed in Roman Catholic cross and collar. We are really living in the end of the end-times, where Jesus warned, the “abomination of desolation… stands in the holy place.” [Not in the so-called restored temple of Jerusalem, but inside the New Covenant temple of the Holy Spirit, the blood-bought, believing body of Christ, (1 Cor. 6:16-17: Mt. 24:27.)]
On Right: Messianic Jews and other Evangelicals call up unknown spirits by blowing the Jewish Shofar, (the Ram’s Horn) in their attempt to supposedly cast out demons from believers. The Shofar and other Jewish beliefs belong to the Jewish Synagogue — which still rejects their Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible, after nearly two millennia.

I believe that the entire Bible, interpreted in context, is the unchangeable, eternal Word of God.
Jesus Himself Is The Word of God, (Jn. 1:1-13; Heb. 1:1-14; Col. 2:9.) As soon as we add or subtract from the contextual truth of God’s Word, we subtract from our salvation, redemption (or spiritual freedom,) and blessing in Christ. This is why I am not interested in feeding anyone any type of man-made doctrine, or in bringing any strange spiritual manifestation to glorify any person, including myself.
For too long, false teachers, prophets, and ministers of all sorts have functioned in the midst of the body of Christ, abusing God’s blood-bought children by keeping them from the real truth of God’s Word. So, in this study follows the Scriptural truth about the dogmas they have taught us to enslave us to their unscriptural rule.
Jesus declared, “I Am the Light of the world. He who follows Me [through the truth of My Word, will walk in real Holy Spirit power,] and shall [therefore] not walk in darkness, but have the light of life,” (Acts 8:32; Jn. 8:12; 16:8.)
Then He promised, “If you abide in My Word, [not in church doctrines and their false spiritual manifestations,] you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth [of My true, contextual Word] shall set you free,” (Jn. 8:31-32.)

BEFORE GOLGOTHA, STILL UNDER THE OLD TESTAMENT COVENANT, JESUS CAST OUT DEMONS PRIMARILY FROM HIS OLD TESTAMENT/COVENANT NATION, THE OLD HEBREWS
Jesus ministered mainly to His own Hebrew nation, as they were still under the Old Testament, physical temple covenant of the Law. (He came to His own, the Hebrew nation first, Jn. 1:11.) All non-Hebrew people were and are “Gentiles.” The physical building of the Old Testament temple was still the “dwelling place” of God and the meeting place of the Old Hebrews. At that stage, Jesus had not gone to the cross yet, and “the Holy Spirit was not yet given” to indwell any human being — except for the Man Jesus, Who is Holy, Almighty God Himself, (Jn. 7:39; Col. 2:9.)
Thus, during the entire Old Testament Covenant, which ended at the cross when Jesus died, the Holy Spirit only ‘came upon’ Hebrew people, but never indwelt any of them. Most of the Old Hebrew nation rejected Jesus as their Savior and Redeemer – but still, after Jesus had risen from the dead, a remarkable, unchangeable turn in the spiritual history of all humanity began, (Jn. 3:16.)
In Jn. 12:31-33, before going to the cross, Jesus prophesied what was about to happen at Golgotha. He declared, [“I was casting demons out of My Hebrew believers until now. But] now is the [final] judgement of [Satan’s rule in] this world: now shall the ruler of this world be cast out, [his power will be completely destroyed over all those who truly believe in Me. Because when] I am lifted up from the earth [on the cross,] I will draw all [sincere believers from all nations, (Hebrews and Gentiles,)] unto Me,” (Rev. 5:9.)
Since Golgotha, Jesus would completely, at the moment of their personal rebirth, once and for all, ‘cast out’ Satan from all those who sincerely accept Him; totally annihilating the devil’s power over all Jesus’ newborn, genuine believers, (Jn. 1:12-13; Gal. 4:6-7.) Paul wrote in Col. 2:13-15, “...He has [past tense,] made alive [all real believers] with Him, having forgiven them all trespasses, having wiped out the [requirements of the law by fully fulfilling the law in their place, Mt. 5:17,] having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed [all demonic powers] He made a public spectacle of [Satan and all his demons,] triumphing over them in it.”
Hence, at the cross, Jesus completely annulled the physical Old Testament Covenant with His physical Hebrew nation, destroying their physical Old Testament temple-order and everything else that pertained to their ‘outward,’ religious covenant, (Heb. 8:7-13; 7:11-28; 9:11-15; 9:16-28; 10:1-18.) And thus, Jesus became the Only Complete and Eternal sacrifice, Who paid in full, once and forever, for all the transgressions ever committed against God’s Moral Law of Love, to bring every sincerely believing disciple into a completely different, spiritual, everlasting, New Testament Covenant under His entirely New Testament Dispensation, (Jn. 3:16; Col. 2:8-15.)
So, at His ascension, Jesus commissioned His followers to make disciples from all the nations, not just from among the Hebrew nation. Henceforward, only those who sincerely and personally believe in Jesus will be saved, redeemed and blessed, as He is the Only Light, Life, Truth, and Way to heaven, (Jn. 14:6.) He commanded all His followers to make more disciples by preaching His Spiritual Kingdom, (His New Covenant Gospel,) to all who would personally choose to accept Him.
Church membership plays absolutely no role in all this. All Jesus’ believers must be spiritually and personally born again into His Kingdom through personal faith in Him and acceptance of Him, to live as completely saved, redeemed, and blessed children of God — which was impossible during Jesus ministry to the Old Hebrews before the cross, (Mt. 28:19-20; Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5; Gal. 4:6; 1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:15-20; Gal. 3:10-14.)
Only at Pentecost, after Jesus’ ascension, did the Holy Spirit come once and for all to indwell all Jesus’ born again believers. Jesus Himself promised that He will be with us and in us, “even to the end of this world,” (Mt. 28:20; Acts chapter 2; 1 Jn. 2:20; 27.)
SALVATION, REDEMPTION AND BLESSING IN CHRIST CONSTITUTE THE SPIRITUAL PLACE/POSITION/STATE THAT ALL PERSONALLY BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS OCCUPY INSIDE THE SPIRITUAL KINGDOM OF CHRIST
The reason why Jesus’ true Gospel must be preached to every person who desires to meet, know, and follow God, is because He is not into changing bad people into religious people, who merely look good from the outside, (Jn. 3:16; Mt. 29:19-20.) The Jesus of the Bible makes “new creations” from willing people who are lost, cursed, spiritually dead and bound without Him; (Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5; Gal. 2:20.)
The sly, evil author of all religion in all its many forms cannot do any of this. That is why he set up religious church systems of all kinds where people can simply join to remain just as they are, because it is all about outward pomp and empty self-righteousness, while it never changes the ‘heart’ of anyone. Jesus is all about His believing disciples’ inward, self-crucifying, spiritual renewal, (Gal. 5:24-25.)
Thus, no one can “join” God’s Spiritual Kingdom. We must become “spirit” to effectively communicate with God, Who Is Spirit. Our dead human spirits, which all humanity inherited from the fall in the Garden, must become alive within us through personal faith in, and acceptance of Jesus. Otherwise, we cannot “see” [understand] or “enter” the spiritual Kingdom of God, (Jn. 4:21-24; 1 Cor. 15:22; Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5.)
At the moment we sincerely accept Jesus as our personal God, Lord, Savior, Redeemer, and Blessor, He instantly takes us spiritually out of the kingdom of darkness with it’s lostness, cursedness, and all other bondage. He then places us wholly into His Kingdom of salvation, redemption (or spiritual freedom) and blessing, (1 Pt. 2:9-10; Gal. 3:10-14.) Jesus declared in Col. 1:13-14, “He has delivered [past tense] us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of [Christ,] in Whom we have [present tense] redemption [or complete spiritual freedom] through His blood: the forgiveness of [all our] sins,” (1 Pt. 2:9-10.) The physical exodus of the old Hebrew nation was a symbol of this spiritual exodus of Jesus’ sincere, personal believers from the kingdom of darkness into His Kingdom of Light. God explained and commanded in Ex. 20:1-3, “I Am the Lord your God Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me…”
At the moment of our personal rebirth, Jesus also “baptizes” His new believers “with the Holy Spirit,” Who constantly indwells their blood-cleansed human spirits as His holy temple “until the end of his world,” (Mt. 28:19-20; Rom. 8:9; 1 Jn. 2:20, 27.) The Holy Spirit then instantly “baptizes” His new believers into the body of Christ, (1 Ths. 5:23; Mt. 3:11; 1 Cor. 12:12-13; Jn. 14:16-17, 1 Cor. 6:19.)
This is the Scriptural rebirth in Christ; there exists no other. There is no “baptism “in” the ‘holy’ spirit with the [so-called] ‘evidence’ of speaking in tongues at the laying on of hands,” as taught in churches. Only Jesus Himself baptizes sincere, new-born believers “with” the Holy Spirit. He “baptizes” them or places the Holy Spirit “into” them to constantly indwell them as His living temple; He does not place them “in” the Holy Spirit. Additionally, “If one does not have [the immediate and full indwelling of the] Holy Spirit, he does not belong to Christ,” (Rom. 8:9.) No church sacramental salvation, (or ceremonial salvation in stages,) exits either. Speaking in tongues is just one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, as described in 1 Corinthians chapters 12 & 14. Jesus’ baptism with the Holy Spirit at the moment of the spiritual rebirth may or may not be accompanied by the “signs” of tongues and/or prophecy. The Spirit gives His gifts “as He wills,” (1 Cor. 12:11.) Therefore, Paul asked in 1 Cor. 12:30, “Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret?...” The answer is a definite “no.” Each member of Jesus’ body of believers receive gits and callings “as the Holy Spirit Alone wills,” (1 Cor. 12:11; 27-31.)
Jesus Is the Only Holy-Spirit Baptizer! (Mt. 3:11.) If you, dear reader, believe the truth of God’s Word and realize that you have received a false “baptism ‘in’ the ‘holy spirit’ with the laying on of hands and the ‘evidence’ of speaking in tongues,” no matter how many uncontextual verses they have shown you to justify this ‘second baptism,’ you must take it straight to the throne of our Father in heaven.
Confess it as sin to have submitted to that false dogma and their false authority; thus receiving a false ‘holy’ spirit that most probably attached itself to you [not indwelt you if your really accepted Jesus,] with a false gift of tongues and/or prophecy, (2 Cor. 11:3-4.)
The Word of God promises in 1 Jn. 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Pray this promise over you and thank Jesus that the protection of His mighty and holy angels, the power of His indwelling Holy Spirit, His full blood-atonement in your place, and His Scriptural promises are all real and true.
Then, renounce that strange spirit and ‘gift’ in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Take control of all false spirits in the Name of Jesus. Bind them, cut them off [not out] of you and send them away for always; forbidding them to return, (Mark 16:16-18.)
Accept Jesus’ full redemption by faith and stand on the Scriptural fact that all sincere believers, at their rebirth in Christ, experienced the indwelling, “abiding,” Holy-Spirit baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible, (with or without any of the ‘signs’ described in 1 Cor. 12 & 14,) and already have, (present tense,) all His anointing “abiding” in them, (1 Jn. 2:20.) The Word of God promised in Jn. 3:34 that “[Jesus] does not give the Holy Spirit by measure.”
It is very important to understand that, as born again disciples of Jesus who live inside His Spiritual Kingdom, we cannot fall in, out, and back into Jesus’ Kingdom as it pleases us, (Jn. 18:36.) Personally born again believers willingly and by choice must occupy this place (or spiritual position) inside the Kingdom of God, (Col. 1:13-14; Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5; Gal. 4:6, 1 Pt. 2:9-25, Phil. 4:21-22.)
Salvation, Redemption and Blessing are therefore not ‘things’ we still have to attain, earn, or hope for after we have accepted Christ. Salvation is this complete “package” of “completeness” in Christ, (Col. 2:9-10; Lu. 17:20-21; 1 Ths. 5:23; 1 Jn. 2:20;27.)
· Additionally, Jesus did not leave the ‘minds,’ (thoughts and beliefs) of believers in bondage to darkness. Thus, Jesus commanded active discipleship through obedience to His Moral law in the power of the “abiding,” indwelling Teacher, His Holy Spirit of “All Truth,” (1 Jn. 2:4; Jn. 8:31; 14:15, 23; 21:15-16.) He commanded all His disciples to personally study His Word to constantly “renew” or “transform” their ‘minds’ or thoughts, so they can know Who He really Is; who they really are in Him, and how to follow or obey Him above all else to glorify His Name, (Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Pt. 1:13-19; Jude 1:20; Jn. 13:34; Mt. 10:37.)
· Neglecting Jesus’ commandment to “renew our minds” can produce terrible spiritual and emotional consequences for us, (Hos. 4:6.) Neglecting this commandment is a major cause of “backsliding” from the Truth of Jesus’ Word — because it is doubtful that neither traditional nor modern church dogmas ever explained or demanded Scriptural discipleship in Jesus, (Jn. 21:14-16; 14:15, 23; 8:31; 1 Jn. 2:4; Mt. 10:37-39.) So, once problems pile on top of one another, millions of believers, (who were taught that God and demons inhabit believers,) seek “deliverance” form “exorcists” who, functioning outside the truth of Scripture, do more harm than anyone can realize.
· However, Jesus Himself made a way for believers, through His complete atonement in their place, to “return” to Him, (or rather, return to peace in Him,) should the believer truly desire to know and obey His will. Jesus promised, “...The one who comes [or returns to Me like in the parable of the prodigal son,] I will by no means cast out.” (Jn. 6:37.)
THE WHOLE UNBELIEVING ‘WORLD’ IS IN THE POWER OF THE EVIL ONE, (1 Jn. 5:19)
God’ declares in 1 Jn. 5:19 that the “whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” This means that technically, all unbelievers are inhabited by demons. I also do not doubt that believers who completely renounced Jesus (and are now unbelievers) are indwelt by demons. However, all true believers in Christ live under His New Testament Covenant of Grace. Because we “all stumble in many ways,” (Jam. 3:2,) on a physical level, none of us are perfect. Even while striving to know and do God’s will, we will still not attain perfection on a physical level in this world. We all must, to the end, completely rely on Jesus’ perfect atonement in our place, (Jn. 3:16.) Therefore, when we stumble and confess our sins to God, the blood of Jesus continually and completely “cleanses us from all unrighteousness,” (1 Jn. 1:9,) Paul declared in Eph. 1:7, “In Him we have [present tense] the [full] redemption through His blood…”
It is doubtful that unbelievers will go to ‘deliverance ministers’ to be ‘delivered’ from demons. Hence, we can accept that those who attend these church meetings and private ‘exorcisms’ are indeed believers. If the problem is that they do not understand the Gospel and therefore never really personally accepted Jesus, they are absolutely in the wrong place. Casting out demons from unbelievers who come to church to find Jesus, but only find chaotic exorcism, will just cause the spirits to return sevenfold, as Jesus warned in Mt. 12:45.
Although the physical Old Testament/Covenant temple could never have been Jesus’ blood-bought, Spirit-indwelt body, as He hasn’t yet gone to the cross to atone for all sin, these “deliverers” established the assumption that believers are indwelt by demons and God, because of the witchcraft and idolatry that was committed in the Old Testament temple, which supposedly did ‘not’ cause God to leave the temple. They say, in the Old temple, God resided in the Holy of Holies, (in New Testament terms, the ‘heart’ or human spirit of believers,) while idolatry of all kinds were committed at the gates and outer court, (Ezekiel Chapter 8.) So, they came to the conclusion that demons can dwell in the minds and bodies of believers, while the Holy Spirit only indwells the ‘hearts’ (or human spirits) of believers, (1 Ths 5:23.)
The allegation that believers can be indwelt by demons without being ‘possessed” is false. To make “possession” sound better, they term demonic habitation “oppression,” which still supposedly warrants ‘deliverance.’ These ‘deliverers’ are playing with believers’ minds. The word “oppression” means repression, domination, tyranny. The word “possession” means ownership. These are two different things. I believe that demons can and do, from the outside, “oppress” believers, or harass them to various degrees. This certainly does not call for “deliverance,” or actually, “exorcism,” (1 Pt. 3:14-17; 4:12-19.)
These ‘deliverers’ completely overlook Jesus’ truth that all sincere disciples were completely “called out of darkness into His light, and that they now fully occupy the position inside Jesus’ Kingdom as “His chosen [spiritual] generation [of born again believers,] His holy nation; His own special people.” True believers were so dearly bought and redeemed by His blood atonement in their place, and they are so fully indwelt by the Holy Spirit as His holy temple, that they are all His spiritual “kings and priests,” who petition and minister directly before God’s most holy throne in heaven, (1 Pt. 2:9-10; Rev. 1:6; Heb. 4:16.)
SCRIPTURAL PROOF THAT THE ENTIRE ‘DELIVERANCE’ FRANCISE IS A HOAX
The following Scriptures totally refute the doctrine that believers can be indwelt by demons. Paul taught in 1 Cor. 6:15-20; 3:16-17, “Do you not know that he who is joined to a whore, [both male and female fornicators are whores,] is one body with her [or him?]’ [They become one physical, soulical, and spiritual body with the whore, 1 Ths. 5:23.] For the two, God says, shall become one flesh. But he who is joined to the Lord is [entirely] one spirit with Him. [Spiritually, we are “bone of His bones and flesh of His flesh,” Eph. 5:30.] Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that one does is outside the body, but he [or she,] who commits sexual immorality sins against his [or her] own body [and thus sins against the holy temple of the Holy Spirit.] Or do you not know that your [entire] body is a temple of the Holy Spirit Who dwells in you… and that you are not your own? For you were bought with a price… If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is [completely] holy, which temple you are.”
See? All true believers are holy and completely without indwelling demons. But if we commit sexual immorality, (and any other sin) it can have defiling consequences. Faith and repentance can never be separated from each other. However, even if we did commit sexual immorality, we can confess that sin in sincerity and repent from it, and God will forgive us and “cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
For true believers, knowledge of God’s Word, sincere confession of, and repentance from sin deals with demons; not exorcism. This is not a licence to commit any type of immorality. God views the “destruction of His temple” very seriously, as seen in this passage.
Paul continued in 1 Cor. 6:15, 19-20, “Do you not know that your bodies [your entire bodies] are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of [Satan?] Certainly not!... Or do you not know that your [whole] body is the temple of the Holy Spirit Who is in you, Whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price. So, glorify God in your body, [your physical body, soul or mind,] and in your spirit, which are God’s [temple.]”
This explanation rules out all notions that God will share His living, blood-cleansed temple with the devil. That’s why Paul asked in 2 Cor. 6:16, “What agreement [comparison, affiliation] has the temple of God with idols? For [born again believers] are the temple of the Living God…”
Rom. 12:1-3 commands, “I beseech you… that you present your bodies, [spirit, soul, and physical body, 1 Ths. 5:23,] a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, [through the blood of Jesus,] which is your reasonable service [to Him.…]” Then, Paul shows us how to maintain that holiness, “Do not be conformed to this world [by thinking like they do,] but transform [your thoughts] by the renewing of your mind, that you may know [and do] that… perfect will of God.” 1 Pt. 1:13-19, “Gird up the loins of your mind, [your thoughts,] be sober… not conforming to the former lusts… but as He Who called you is holy, you also [must remain] holy… knowing that you were… [already fully] redeemed… [at that moment when Jesus “conveyed you from darkness into His light,] with the precious blood of Christ…” (Col. 1:13-14.)
The only way Satan can get hold of Jesus’ born again disciples, who live inside the Kingdom of Light, is by getting hold of their “minds” or thoughts. [This is what the Bible calls, “the flesh.”] As the devil cannot indwell the holy temple of Christ, he imitates the conviction of the Holy Spirit, (Jn. 16:8-10,) and convinces believers to accept his lies. This happens when we ourselves decide to give him the permission to again, after our spiritual rebirth, enslave our thoughts with lies, lusts, fears, harassment, and deception by disobeying the protective Moral-Law commandments of God, (Jam. 1:13-18; Gal. 3:10-14; 1 Pet. 2:9-10; 1 Ths. 5:21.)
The battle is constantly for our thoughts, (1 Ths. 5:23.) As long as believers think they are “sinners saved by grace,” who are inhabited by demons and by God, they will remain sinners. Sinners and saints (or true believers,) are two opposite spiritual species. One species is possessed by the devil; the other species is possessed by the Holy Spirit. “Having obtained such [perfect inheritance…] and were trusted, after you heard the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your salvation, in Whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit… Who is the Guarantee of your inheritance until the [final] redemption [when Jesus returns,] of His purchased possession... [True believers are entirely possessed by the Holy Spirit,]” (Eph. 1:12-14.)
