Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). There is a shift coming, and I know, feel and see it is already happening. We are at the beginning of seeing the continuation of what Jesus came to do.
Years ago, I was asked to write an article for Charisma magazine's print edition. The editors asked me to target what the church was missing, and I thought, "That is easy. It is the ministry of deliverance." However, after taking the article to prayer, the Spirit led me to write that the church was missing the ministry of discipleship. I believe that is true too. Therefore, I was especially excited when, last week, the Spirit of the Lord told me the ministry of deliverance is coming into the church.
Something is changing in the atmosphere around deliverance. Last week, the Lord told me deliverance is coming to the church and has already started. Ministers are beginning to become more vocal about the ministry of deliverance. Specifically, He said to me that ministry leaders who didn't previously embrace this ministry would start welcoming it and encouraging it. The ministry of deliverance, the same works that Jesus came to do, must come to the forefront. Revival is predicted, and people are expecting the greatest spiritual awakening of all times. My husband says, "If you want to see revival, draw a circle on the ground and take two steps forward to put yourself in it." Revival begins with us, and it begins with our deliverance. The ministry of deliverance must come to the forefront of the church if we want to see revival.
It has been three weeks now that I have felt a spiritual shift and an anointing for deliverance. I have been praying and seeking the Lord to know what my part is in bringing forth the ministry of deliverance and setting people free from mind-bondage and fear (see my free Charisma Course on How to Conquer Fear). I have been continually releasing the ministry of deliverance through Prophetic Spiritual Warfare on Charisma Podcast Network and through our online church services.
It is time for the church to arise and take her greatest moment in history. As COVID has plagued the world and closed down church services, people have taken to the internet to release the ministry of deliverance. As I look around, ministers and leaders who weren't passionate about deliverance now see the need to set the captives free. If you write an article on deliverance or teach on spiritual warfare, it blows up in social media statistics. It is because people are desperate for deliverance. However, if the church does not rise to this calling, people will seek the power source elsewhere.
Years ago, I wrote an article online for Charisma titled, "Witches, Warlocks Are Actually Looking for God's Power." The church has failed in not bringing forth the same message Jesus came to deliver. People seeking freedom and help found it in the wrong places or were welcomed by someone practicing contrary to God's word, and they were drawn to what is fake instead of what is real.
Ignorance is not bliss. A problem isn't going to go away by ignoring it. Our churches haven't embraced deliverance as a whole, but the Lord says, "No more. The time is now for the deliverance ministers and ministries to arise. The time for kingdom-building and kingdom-deliverance is now. The time for the ministry My Son came to release, the ministry of deliverance, must and will come back into the church. Don't fight what is inevitable and what is the Father's will. The ministry of deliverance will come forth."
I believe there is a spiritual awakening, one to the ministry of deliverance, and I want to be a part of it. There is an awakening; people are in need. Let's lay aside our feelings, wants, motives and agendas for the Spirit of the Lord and our Father's will to be manifested here on earth. Spiritual warfare and deliverance are waged best when led by the Holy Spirit. In my new book, Prophetic Spiritual Warfare (Charisma House), learn how to conquer warfare and receive and release the ministry of deliverance.
