John 17:16-19 (KJV) “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth”.
Bro, I’m not going, I’m tired of everyday deliverance, after all, we have seen no improvement. We’ve done all they said we should do; we’ve fasted and did vigils for several weeks, sown battle seed and the other kinds of seed. Remember that this is the eighth church we will be visiting for deliverance on this same issue, this deliverance thing is not working! I’m tired!
There seem to be many in the Church who do not know the purpose of deliverance, they see deliverance as an end in itself but it is not. The Israelites for instance were delivered from Egypt’s captivity but a lot of them perished in the wilderness without entering the promised Land.
What deliverance does is to take the hindrances or blockages between us and the truth away. These hindrances could be demonic, human, or environmental. And once hindrances are taken away, the delivered must find the truth and continue to live by it. If this is not done, the deliverance will be short-lived and unable to produce freedom.
Jesus in John 8:32 said, “ you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”. So, what makes for freedom is knowledge of ( fellowship with) the truth. Obediah clarifies this when he said the following by the Spirit: “upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions” Obadiah 1:17 (KJV). In other words, deliverance makes holy living possible, and holy living yields freedom (possessing one’s possessions).
Go into today knowing that to get true freedom, you must live holy. This will be possible when you allow the truth of God’s word to sanctify you.
Pray: Thank you Jesus for access to your word, help me to live by the truth of your word. Amen!
