Deliverance Ministry Is Not of God? Think Again

(Charisma Media archives)

I don't really understand how some Bible-believing Christians can make the argument that deliverance ministry is not of God.

Jesus delivered several people throughout the Gospels.

The scripture says in John 14:12: "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works because I am going to be with the Father."

Even greater works! Hello?

Here are examples of Jesus casting out demons.

"They *came to Jesus and *observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the "legion," and they became frightened" (Mark 5:15, NASB 1995).

"The people went out to see what had happened; and they came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting down at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they became frightened" (Luke 8:35).

"After the demon was cast out, the mute man spoke; and the crowds were amazed, and were saying, 'Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel'" (Matt. 9:33).

"And He was casting out a demon, and it was mute; when the demon had gone out, the mute man spoke; and the crowds were amazed" (Luke 11:14).

"And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made erect again and began glorifying God" (Luke 13:13).

The gifts of the Spirit are for today too! Just read Acts chapter 2!

Don't let anyone tell you Jesus isn't still in the miracle-working business! He absolutely is!

How do I know this? Because I am a walking miracle and He saved a wretch like me! Hallelujah!
