Deliverance Kingdom

Deliverance Kingdom

“But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.”
Matthew 12:28

Casting out demons was a normal part of Jesus’ everyday ministry when he was here on earth, and casting out demons continues to be an everyday experience wherever Christ’s kingdom is advancing.

The removal of evil spirits may not be normal to your experience, but it is normal when the kingdom of God is advancing. Do not allow your personal experience to limit what is kingdom-normal. That is a grave mistake.

It would also be a grave mistake to focus on casting out demons and allow that to become a distraction. We are not told to seek first deliverance; we are told to seek first Christ’s kingdom. As the kingdom of God advances, demons will manifest and show their true colors. One by one they will be vanquished in the name of Christ as evidence of God’s advancing.

And that is a promise.

Loving Father, I declare today, your kingdom come. Any demonic influence in my life and family— bring it to light, expose it, and remove it in Jesus’ name.
