SECRET OF DELIVERANCE
If we should ask, why do we have children of God who are still under the bondage of satanic attack? The simple answer is because such believers lack understanding. Many children of God pray, fast, go to mountain, go for deliverance, yet still under the torment of Satan; many exercise strong faith, yet nothing happens. All these happen as a result of ignorance. Deliverance from sickness or satanic attack does not come through faith in your prayer, through faith in a man or woman of God or through faith in a particular church or mountain. Deliverance from sickness and satanic attacks comes only through faith in the name of Jesus Christ. It is not the prayer you pray that will put God’s power in action, it is not a man of God that will put God’s power in action, but it is name of Jesus Christ that put God’s power into action. Here is the word of God:
“Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” 7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God” Acts 3:6-8
After the healing of the cripple man, so many people rallied round Peter and John, seeing them as super human being or super holy men, or extraordinary men; but Peter quickly cleared the air and told them the secret of God’s power in action, the secret of real deliverance, ” So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: “Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? Acts 3:12.
Deliverance does not come by calling God of Babalola, God of Adeboye, and so on, by calling such, you are putting part of your faith in such men. Even Apostle Peter said it was not by his own power.
Deliverance or God’s power does not come by faith in our prayer or in our work of godliness even though we are living godly.
What is the secret of deliverance? What is the secret of manifestation of God’s power? Here is what Peter said, “And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.” Acts 3:16
1, The name of Jesus Christ.
2, Faith in the name of Jesus Christ.
You can call the name of Jesus Christ without having faith in His name, but you cannot have faith in His name without calling on His name. Many times we call on or scream the name of Jesus Christ out of fear not out of faith, that is the reason no deliverance follows.
How do we know if we have faith in the name of Jesus Christ when we pray? Or how do we know that Peter actually had faith in the name of Jesus that he called? Simple, it’s by action that follows after calling the name of Jesus Christ.
Let’s look at Peter for example, what did he do after he called on the name of Jesus Christ when he prayed for the cripple man? He took a step of faith, action that goes in line with his faith. “And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.” Acts 3:7.
What if Peter had fear that if lift him by hand and at last he didn’t walk? Peter could be afraid and said, “So that means I will be the one to be holding him about for life, since I’m the one who find trouble.”
You know what? Goya olive oil called anointing oil can’t help you, mantle, holy water, candle,sowing seed, marathon fasting and prayer, mountains, special men of God with special anointing can’t deliver you; what you need is the name of Jesus Christ and faith in the name. But before you can use the two you must first be saved from your sins through the same name; by total repentance and forsaking your sins. Yes, Peter told them too, he said, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.” Acts 3:19.
Before you can be delivered from the bondage of curses, witches and wizards, enemies, evil forces and Satan, you must first be delivered from sin. Today is the day of your salvation.
