DELIVERANCE BY THE POWER of GOD

For many days, I have been seeking direction in a particular area. I’m currently producing a TEXT CD – an amassing of writings generated through authors from all over the world – the theme of all these articles is pointed in the same direction – a deep, inner yearning for a more intimate knowledge of God Himself. Most all have come to the awareness that God is within each of us by the residing presence of Holy Spirit – leading, teaching, encouraging and always speaking Truth to each of us concerning our next steps on the PATH that has been chosen for our particular walk in this life.
At one point of my own spiritual journey I participated in what was referred to as a “Deliverance Ministry” and joined with others in taking authority over negative influences in troubled folk’s lives and seeking Father for instructions on how to be used to set folks free. At some point, I experienced some confusion. I immediately backed off and asked for clarification on where truth was – concerning this subject. Holy Spirit said, “Call upon the name of the Lord and you will be delivered.” Well that was just too simple – almost too good to be true! But time has certainly proven what I heard was true and today I’ve seen many folks completely set free from things that had been binding them up for most of their lives, as Holy Spirit has led me to encourage a change of focus in their lives. As they have focused on God instead of the problem – looked to His Light instead of continuing to magnify the Darkness they were experiencing – and called on Him for deliverance from their present distress, they have been set free. It has only been those that have continued to see the problem, instead of turning to God for change, that have stayed in their difficulty.
Now, I’m faced with a decision concerning this TEXT CD. I have many teachings on the type of deliverance I participated in years ago. In my trying to sort through all of these teachings and asking to be shown whether any of this information is really important to include on the CD, I was still going about my daily duties. Today I was reading and editing one of Elwin Roach’s articles: “The Voice of Many Colors.” He refers to this scripture:
In John 5:24-25 “The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the Voice of the Son of God: and THEY THAT HEAR SHALL LIVE! “
I see several meanings, immediately concerning this scripture. Here are a few:
a.They will be awakened and begin to walk into their inheritance as Sons of God.
- They will come out of the darkness of their own thinking and into the Light of Christ – Truth rather than illusion.
- They will no longer be in their sleep [death] separation from total unity with the Father – but now they have been awakened –not just called, but now Chosen to receive revelation of who they really are and the path they are to follow, thus His Life will now come forth from within their being.
I have a scripture that just keeps coming forth in my thought life. There is a scripture that says there shall come a River of Life flowing out from the Throne of God…We are the temple and the River of Life is the steady flow of TRUTH, LIFE, and LIGHT that will flow forth from us as the Christ within us speaks to the rest of the world and they become awakened – receiving LIGHT and dispelling all darkness.
Here are some translations of this scripture:
Revelation 22:1-5 1 Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the broad street of the city. On both sides of the river was the tree of life bearing 12 kinds of fruit, producing its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for healing the nations, 3 and there will no longer be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and His servants will serve Him. 4 They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. 5 Night will no longer exist, and people will not need lamplight or sunlight, because the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign forever and ever. [Holman Christian Standard Bible]
Revelation 22:1-5 1 And he shewed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, going out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of its street, and of the river, on this side and on that side, [the] tree of life, producing twelve fruits, in each month yielding its fruit; and the leaves of the tree for healing of the nations. 3 And no curse shall be any more; F173 and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants F174 shall serve F175 him, 4 and they shall see his face; and his name [is] on their foreheads. 5 And night shall not be any more, and no need of a lamp, and light of [the] sun; for [the] Lord God shall shine upon them, and they shall reign to the ages of ages. [Darby Translation]
Revelation 22:1-5 1 Then he showed me the river of the Water of Life, bright as crystal, issuing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 On either side of the river, midway between it and the main street of the city, was the Tree of Life. It produced twelve kinds of fruit, yielding a fresh crop month by month, and the leaves of the tree served as medicine for the nations. 3 “In future there will be no curse,” he said, “but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in that city. And His servants will render Him holy service and will see His face, 4 and His name will be on their foreheads. 5 And there will be no night there; and they have no need of lamplight or sunlight, for the Lord God will shine upon them, and they will be kings until the Ages of the Ages.” [Weymouth New Testament]
In Revelation 22: 1-5, I see that we, as the TEMPLE of GOD, are the residing place for the Spirit of God – therefore His THRONE is within us. We have been CALLED, CHOSEN [AWAKENED], and have become the origination place for the RIVER OF LIFE. We are the TREE OF LIFE [CHRIST’S PLACE OF RESIDENCE. We are producing the 12 kinds of fruit – all His forms of LIGHT, LIFE, and LOVE. Yielding a fresh crop every month – doesn’t mean peaches in January, plumbs in February, and so forth – it means a continuous ANOINTING to produce LIFE and to be a REFLECTION of HIS LIGHT. It will be that as HIS LIGHT is shinned upon the people [NATIONS] – that healing will take place [change in their thinking] AND THEY WILL CEASE TO PLACE THEIR FOCUS ON DARKNESS, BUT WILL INSTEAD FOCUS ON HIS LIGHT. It is in His Light that they will be totally delivered of all DARKNESS [devils, curses, pain, rejection, anger, bitterness, envy, strife, doubts, and fears.]
As they also awakened to being a TEMPLE of God, His Throne residing within them, they, too, become an origination place for the RIVER OF LIFE and become beacons for HIS LIFE AND LIGHT to shine forth to others. This is the SPIRITUAL LAW OF MULTIPLICITY. THIS IS TRUE DELIVERANCE – ALL BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD RESIDING WITHIN EACH OF US WHO HAVE BEEN CHOSEN as an originating place for his RIVER OF LIFE [the water that will satisfy all spiritual thirst].
THIS IS THE GODLY SPIRIT-POWERED DELIVERANCE – FREE OF ALL MAN’S INTELLECT AND ATTEMPTS TO “DO AS JESUS DID.” THIS IS HIS HOLINESS – HIS PURITY – HIS POWER OPERATING THROUGH ONE OF HIS “CHOSEN” VESSELS – MANIFESTING ISA. 58 – “Breaking the yokes of bondage and setting the captives free.”
This is just one of many recent searches ending in the same conclusion: We can do nothing except He manifest Himself in us to do His Will through us! What a privilege to be an instrument in the hands of our God!
