Casting Out Demons

In the ministry of Jesus Christ, we often notice that ‘healing and deliverance’ went hand in hand along with the preaching and teaching. Jesus said to the Woman who had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity” (Luke 13:11-16) and she was delivered from the infirmity. Jesus says that that woman was a daughter of Abraham. In other words, she was a believer.

Jesus said: “Cast out demons in my name”

Jesus never sent any one to do the work of God without giving them the authority to cast out demons. Jesus called His twelve disciples to Him; He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. Jesus said, “And as you go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of heaven is at hand…heal the sick…. cast out demons.” (Matthew 10:7-8)

Jesus said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” (Matthew 28:18)

All the above scriptures tell us clearly that Jesus gave his disciples power over the enemy. Jesus gave us the authority over ALL the power of the enemy, not just some. Behold, ‘I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall be any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)

“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My (Jesus’s) name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;” (Mark 16:17)

If you have been seeking and asking God to run the devil out of your life, STOP!  

The Bible says that you are the one, who is supposed to overcome the enemy, in the name of Jesus.

The Apostles cast out demons

Peter: “A multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.” (Acts 5:16)

Philip: “For unclean spirits, crying out with a loud voice came out of many that were possessed: and many that were paralyzed and lame were healed.” (Acts 8:7)

Paul: “A certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met Paul. Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, ‘I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.’ And he came out the very hour.” (Acts 16:18).  Even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from Paul’s body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. (Acts 19:11-12)

The above examples clearly show that the apostles exercised the authority which Jesus gave them. They cast out the demons in the ‘name of Jesus’. They were not afraid of the devil. On the contrary, the devil was afraid of these Spirit filled men of God.

You too can cast out demons.  Do you cast out demons? If the answer is yes, thank God!

If no, you have to understand that you too can drive out demons in the “name of Jesus” if you are a child of God. Begin exercising the authority you have been given. Don’t accept defeat. Rise up in faith. Stand up on the Word of God and fight the enemy out. Rise up and receive the deliverance of the Lord.

Keys for deliverance

1. Authority in the name of Jesus

If you’ve been standing there wringing your hands and worrying about what the devil is doing, it is time for you to put the devil under your feet. You have been given the power of attorney that enables you to use the powerful name of Jesus. A name that is above every name:

“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,”  (Phil 2:9,10)

David says: “I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them…they are fallen under my feet.”(Psalms 18:37-38)

Bind the evil spirits that are trying to destroy your home, your marriage, your finances, your church and your nation.

2. The Power of the Holy Spirit

Jesus said He casts out the demons by the power of the Spirit of God…(Matthew 12:28)  Jesus said: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor…to set at liberty those who are oppressed” (Luke 4:18).

God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him (Acts 10:38).  The ‘ability’ to cast out the demons comes from the ‘power’ of the Holy Spirit. Therefore be filled with the Holy Spirit. You will be able to cast the demons out.

3. The blood of Jesus, Word of our testimony and the willingness to fight

“And they overcame the enemy by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” (Rev 12:11). We have to apply the Blood over our situation. Watch the words that come out of your mouth. There is great power in the words that we speak.  It is better to say nothing.  You cannot talk defeat and expect victory. You should have the ‘bulldog’ faith. Never give up.  Remember, you can never be defeated unless and until you give up.

4. Faith-filled prayer and fasting

When a father brought his son who was an epileptic, to the disciples, they could not cure him. The boy was then brought to Jesus. Jesus rebuked the demon (v.18) and the boy was cured the very same hour. (Matt 17:15-21)

When asked the reason, Jesus said: “This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” (v.21)  Fasting ought to become part of your lifestyle.

This passage also shows that the disciples did not have the faith. Jesus says, O faithless and perverse generation (v.17)

May your life be a victorious Christian life in Jesus’ name.


Caution: As believers we are given power to cast out demons in the name of Jesus, and while there may be some temporary discomfort, psychologically, emotionally and physically, no harm will come to us through this, and it is nothing compared with the damage that demons can do if they are left to do their work unhindered. Demons are much better out than in. Demons can cause havoc in a person’s life, through relationship, health, finances and any and every other way.

Whether you are a Christian or not, but especially if you are not a Christian, it is important to read the Bible story of the seven sons of Sceva which you can find here:

It’s important to bear in mind that in the Bible we are repeatedly warned that false teachers, false teaching and deception abound, especially in the last days.  We are told to test the spirits:

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)

Demonic Doorways and Strongholds

In spiritual warfare, it’s crucial to understand about demonic doorways and strongholds, and how to deal with them.  

Demonic doorways are ways that demons can get access to entice, tempt, demean, defile, torment and harass and, as the Bible tells us, Satan only ever comes to steal, kill and destroy.  Demonic doorways include generational curses, a list of which can be found in Deuteronomy 28, which can affect up to ten generations.  Any kind of traumatic experience can be a demonic doorway.  Any way in which we break the commandments, and are rebellious or disobedient to God can be a demonic doorway.

Anything that is in our lives that is an abomination to God is a demonic doorway, such as a cursed object or an occult symbol.  Unholy soul ties are an important demonic doorways, or any way in which we do not turn to God.  In addition to that, there are demons that are gatekeepers, that can easily get to open the gate for others to enter.  For example, a gatekeeper demon could be a demon such as self-pity, covetousness, lust or addiction.

All [meaning Old and New Testament] scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Tim 3:16)

Jesus was a rabbi, and the Apostles were all practising Jews, so that they knew the law, and while we are not saved by the law, but by grace, we are not supposed to be ignorant of things which are an abomination to God and put us under a curse of God.  Yes, Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law, but we are not supposed to go and break it anyway. This is made clear in scripture and there are articles available on the internet on the subject of grace and the law, or legalism.

“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin.” (Rom 6:1-7)

Cursed objects are an important demonic doorway which many people do not know about and so unwittingly lay themselves open to demonic harrassment.  Many people do not even recognise demonic harassment, not realising that it can take many forms, such as things not working out quite right in one way or another, any form of mental unrest or emotional problems, such as depression, problems with concentration, with sleeping, any health problems at all, if not caused by demons, can be exploited by them and they can exacerbate any condition, physical, mental or emotional, and to a greater or lesser degree prevent healing by the Holy Spirit.

This is not because demons are stronger – although the Bible tells us that the devil does have a great deal of power which is often under-estimated – but because if they are given conditions to operate they are perfectly capable – to a greater or lesser extent – of hindering the experience of salvation in every sense of the word.   Whether it is problems in relationships, problems sleeping, concentrating, problems with over-eating, depression, anything that isn’t peace and wellbeing, demons can be implicated in some way and usually are.

Cursed objects include some perhaps surprising things which are an abomination to God such as anything to do with witches and wizards, even stories including them (but please note that this does NOT include black cats).   Anything to do superstition, or luck, or any false religions such as buddhism and hinduism is cursed, as is anything to do with martial arts.

Even pictures of Jesus are a milder form of cursed objects as the Bible doesn’t tell us what Jesus looked like.  The Bible only mentions Jesus’s physical appearance once, in Isaiah 53:2, where it says: “He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him.”

In fact as Jesus was a practising Jew, obedient to the law in every respect, he would certainly not have had a trimmed beard as he would have observed Leviticus 19:27 which says:  “Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.”

The Bible does not tell us to make images of Jesus, and if we were supposed to do that, we surely would have been told what he looked like.  Some people would say to have pictures of Jesus is in direct disobedience of the second commandment:

” Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” (Exodus 20:4)


There is much that can be said about strongholds, and it is a subject that is worth some study.  (There are many excellent in-depth articles available for free on the internet.) Basically it is what is says: “a strong hold”.  This means a strong hold on our mind, will and emotions.  An important element of a demonic stronghold usuallly is deception as to its very existence, so that people are not aware that they are subjected to demonic strongholds.  Our authority, the Bible tells us:

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;” (2 Cor 10:4)

Strongholds are a subject that is worth some study, as it reveals much about how demons are able to deceive, and acquire and keep power over people.

Satan has something for everyone, and ‘more subtle than any beast of his field’ his way of working is often slow and imperceptible.  The devil and his demons know exactly how to find a chink in someone’s armour, to get a toehold, a foothold, then a stronghold, and then a stranglehold.

Demons work together and are able to ‘network’ in the spiritual realm.  One demon will prepare the way for another.  A gatekeeper demon will open the door for other demons to come in.  A gatekeeper demon can also sometimes be the strongman demon that Jesus spoke about when he said:

“Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.  But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.”  (Matthew 12:22-29)

 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

There are many thousands of names of demons.  We don’t need to name them all, but using names do help and so lists of names are helpful.  Some of the names will seem odd and you may think is that really actually a demon?  Even those with decades of experience in Christian deliverance say that while there is a great deal that has been found out through the Bible and through hands-on experience, there is a great deal that is not yet known. Deliverance ministers know from experience that calling out demons by names – however odd the names may seem – does actually work in practice.

The fact is that calling out demons by name – which is always to be done in the name of Jesus as that is where the authority is – does work a great deal more effectively.  It certainly can’t do any harm to call out a demon that isn’t in there, and they are certainly better out than in.  I’ve heard deliverance ministers say – and the personal experience of many people has confirmed – that many things you wouldn’t think were demons, actually are.

Any demon is better out than in so it may be a good policy to say, “When in doubt, cast it out.”

    You guys are full of shit! Jesus said not to worship him but to worship GOD. They are nit the same thing or are you worshiping a entity with multi personality disorder? Wake the fuck up! O by the way, because I know you are going to get hung up on the “swear word”. The word Fuck isn’t a swear word. Go look it up.

    • The 100 Titles of Jesus Found in the Bible

      “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.” (John 14:1-14)

      Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:5-14)

      There follows an excerpt from this article: Should We Worship Jesus Christ

      “Bowing to the king, worshipping him, was a way of demonstrating respect to the king, which, of course, meant that the person had an intent to obey the king. Obedience, then, is an integral part of the worship of God or a king. The outward show of bowing is not really true worship if there is no intent in the heart to obey. If a person comes before a king and bows before him but has no intention of obeying him, then the bow is hollow and deceitful. We see this in action with Adonijah, as he bowed before King Solomon but he was still scheming against him.

      “Then King Solomon sent men, and they brought him down from the altar. And Adonijah came and bowed [shachah] down to King Solomon, and Solomon said, “Go to your home.” (1 Kings 1:53)

      “Adonijah was a half-brother of Solomon and had plotted to usurp David’s throne. But Solomon sent word that if Adonijah would do what was right, then Adonijah’s life would be spared. So Adonijah came and worshipped, bowed down to, Solomon the king as an act of honor and respect, implying that he would be obedient. Actually, Adonijah’s gesture was insincere, and he ended up being put to death (1 Kings 2:25). Bowing insincerely would be similar to calling Jesus “Lord” but then not doing what he said to do (Matt. 7:21-23). It should be that the act of worship comes from a heart of worship.

      “As we have seen, because the English word “worship” is often only used in Scripture of God and Jesus, it is often believed that only they can be “worshipped,” or even that Jesus must be God. This short study should have made it clear that anyone deserving of honor and respect can be “worshipped.” In the biblical culture, the “worship” was evidenced by bowing. However, in our Western society today it is not our custom to bow down to authority figures. Nevertheless, we do honor them, respect them, and in some cases should obey them. If we today honor a notable person by addressing him as “Sir,” singing “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” and giving him presents, we do not call that ‘worship’, but in fact those acts are one way we in Western society would “worship” someone.”

    • This article is about “work” and “worship” being the same word in Hebrew:

      “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” (Romans 14:11)

      “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” (Philippians 2:10)

      “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” (Matthew 28:18)

      “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16:13-15)
