I as you all know am struggling for a long time. I have been praying and pleading to God but this past 2 months i have seen to losing my faith and i am not believing like i use to, i do not know if satan is blocking my mind now or what but if any of you know anyone who is a deliverance minister or who has dealt with demons or spirits in their life would you be able to help. You know i know christ is the deliverer but i feel my prayers our just doing the total opposite and its scaring me. If anyone knows anyone that is biblical, is humble and who will not lift up their own prayers but christ only, who can help deal with this with me. I am not really looking for someone to comfort me so don't be decieved their is no personal reason i am hiding from telling the truth, i want to be delivered and free. I have been to many deliverance ministers who speak of soul ties, speaking prayers out loud continuously, confession of sins etc. but i have seen and have had no change. I do not want to fall away completely from God.
My dear brother, may you understand that Christ is magnified in weakness, perplexity and the cloud of unknowing. Faith rests in what He alone can do in you and through you. You don't need a deliverance minister as much as you need to be delivered from these ministers. I may not know the name of the demon, principality or power but I know the name that is above all names, King Jesus!! God I give you my weakness, confusion and lack of faith and today ask for the great exchange. I give you all that I am for all that you are. He is a rewarder of those who will dilegently seek Him. He is a friend of the wounded heart and identifies with you better than any deliverance huckster, er um minister ever will.

Dear brothers, The good news is that Jesus Christ came not only to save us from the power of sin, but to save us from our wretched sin nature, and He accomplished this work on the cross. Not only did He bear our sins, but we were crucified in Him. We have aleady been dealt with. We don't have to struggle with the old sin nature any longer, but reckon ourselves to be dead to sin but alive unto God.There may be areas in our lives where we have given place to the devil, and sometimes it might be neccessary to get some help from more mature brothers that understand deliverance, but ultimately we are the ones that must submit ourselves to God, and we are the ones that must resist the devil. Jesus Christ has defeated the enemy. He has defeated principalities and powers, and every true child of God has been delivered from the power of darkness and has been translated into the kingdom of God's dear Son. We must stand in the victory that has already been purchased for us by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. We have been given authority to tread on serpents and scorpions. The weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but are mighty unto God to pull down the strongholds of the enemy.Praise be to God! There is victory in Jesus!! In His Love, Mike
As strange as this may seem, but stop struggling. Stop trying to stop sinning, stop trying to do whatever your trying to stop. I know that sounds so against the bible, but it's something that I had to do myself. I've been where your at. When we struggle with something, we are still trying to hold on to the reins so to speak. But if you recognize that your dead and the sin that is in your members acts out, it's not you doing it. Thats what you have to learn to separate yourself from, the born again you and the flesh. With the flesh is condemnation, with the Spirit is life and peace. Stop what your doing. If your flesh sins, repent of immediately and give God the thanks that He is working to mortify the deeds of the flesh by your cooperation of stop trying and by the Spirit that can only put to death the deeds of the flesh.
DeepThinker good word!That reminds me, from what you said, of what our past Director Joyce Green (Milton's wife) has said before about trying to keep the commandments of God she said that when you tell God you can't He says in sense "I never said you could, I always said I would - through you."
when you tell God you can't He says in sense "I never said you could, I always said I would - through you."
Ezekiel 36:25-29 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:[b][size=medium]and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them[/size][/b] and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, . 28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses:
i love that verse but i know thats not me, i have only fallen and fallen and have swayed away from serving him.
Interesting list, Kevin.
God save me from being right all the time

Praying! And answers to prayer! That became the passion of his life. He learned to move men through God by prayer.
