Ministering freedom from spiritual oppression requires an awareness of possible signs of a demonic influence. Since each person’s history is unique, this requires much discernment and reliance on Jesus and His Spirit.
With the coming of Christ and His Kingdom into the world, there is an inevitable conflict with Satan’s Kingdom of Darkness. Christians are called into this ministry to various degrees, following the example of Jesus.
How do we go deeper in prayer? Certainly by learning from Jesus as recorded in Matthew 6:5-14. This message offers a Biblical exposition of the Lord’s Prayer – familiar to many but its depth and significance more than often realized.
Everyone in this world will encounter the kingdom of spiritual oppression, or darkness, in some way. When engaging this kingdom in a more direct way, it is best to know the characteristics, strategy, and tactics of the enemy. This message helps to build a foundation to confidently minister freedom and truth in the Presence and Power of Jesus and His Spirit.
While spiritual oppression is real, many Biblical scholars and pastors would dispute that Christians can come under demonic influence or control. But the Scriptures and experience clearly indicate otherwise. Freedom from very real demonic influence and control is sometimes a key part of realizing healing wholeness in the Christian life.
