RCCG 71ST ANNUAL CONVENTION DAY 4 SERMON
TOPIC: BEYOND DELIVERANCE
MINISTERING: PASTOR E.A. ADEBOYE
BIBLE TEXT: ACTS 8:5-8
Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city.
Acts 8:5-8 KJV
When we talk about deliverance it means freedom from demonic forces; freedom from anything that has to do with the devil. Demonic forces could be just one – Mark 1:23-27
Demons can be many +Luke 8:1-3. Demons could be thousands – Mark 5:2-13.
Whether the demons are one, seven or thousands, there is someone called the deliverer – JESUS.
Deliverance offers you much more than freedom from demons. It offers you freedom from harmful habits – Mark 5:5 For instance those that smoke despite knowing smoking can kill.
Deliverance can deliver your sinful habits that can destroy you – 1 Corinthians 3:17. Deliverance can give you freedom from wrong association – Proverbs 21:1, 1 Corinthians 15:33, Proverbs 13:20.
Deliverance offers you restoration of your destiny. Before you were born God had a plan for your life, but many people come into the world and they deviate; their destiny becomes truncated.
Exodus 12:30-32 When God was delivering Israel from Egypt Pharaoh said something, go and serve God as you wish. Deliverance gives you the ability to serve God as you wish. Deliverance makes available to you the wealth that you wish to serve God. There are people here who would love to build a church for God once every year, but they don’t have the power to do it.
Poverty is a curse, prosperity is a blessing. That’s why the devil doesn’t like anything that will make you prosper. A child of God doing the will of God shouldn’t lack.
Deliverance can turn you into becoming a terror to the devil. You used to run from witches and wizard, deliverance can turn the tide and they will be running from you – Acts 13:6-12. Deliverance can make you a one man army in the Lord.
James 4:7- To be a one man army for God you must be able to say I am a child of God 100 percent and you must submit to Him- John 14:30.
To be a one man army for God you must be ready for a life of self-discipline – Matthew 17:14-21 Your life must become a life of fasting and prayer. You must learn to say no to the flesh from time to time – 1 Corinthians 9:25-27
How can you become a terror to the devil if you are not the child of God – 1 John 3:8, Acts 19:13-17. If your salvation is not genuine, I beg you tonight, give your life to Jesus.
