However, with images such as The Exorcist stuck in our minds, we expect the worst. We get what we expect. Different parts of the world believe demons manifest differently. The Chinese believe they have to burp to expel a demon. Africans vomit, slither like a snake on the floor and contort. A great number of Pentecostals believe a demon must come out by spitting up or vomiting.
Demons come out in a variety of ways including, but not limited to: (Excerpt from my book, Discerning and Destroying the Works of Satan).
I believe if we can bring forth the true ministry of deliverance the way Jesus did it and eliminate the difficulty that the idea of deliverance can bring, more people and churches would embrace the ministry of deliverance. People get scared of what they see on television and witness in meetings, but the truth is, every person is different. We have witnessed that the more eager a person is to receive deliverance the easier it is.
When we know our dominion, authority and the power of the name of Jesus, all things are subjected to us, and the demons must flee. It is not an issue to be scared about; it is an issue to embrace because Jesus came to set the captives free (Isa. 61:1) and all of us have been captive at one point or the another by generational sins, spirits of infirmity or sins of the flesh.
When we can remove the preconceived ideas of what deliverance needs to look like and accept the power of the cross and the authoritative name of Jesus, we will see deliverance manifest in supernatural, accelerated ways. The church doesn't embrace deliverance because of their idea that it is scary and messy. It doesn't have to be that way. As we educate the church, believers and leaders on true prophetic Holy Spirit-led deliverance ministry, we will truly be living the Bible and setting the captives free as Jesus came to do and instructed us to do as well.
