What Does The Bible Say
Take care after your deliverance
1.1. Get serious about prayer and fill yourself with the word of god
Now is the time to start studying the Word, learn bible verses that can help you in your battle. Join the Soldiers 4 Christ activities and home cell or join a fellow Christian group for moral support. This will assist you in your walk. Make time every day to spend alone time with Jesus Christ Yeshua Hammasiach. You need to remember He is coming back to fetch his bride.
What does it mean to be a bride? An example is : if you spend just 10minutes a week with your fiancé, would that person want to marry you? The answer is definitely not. So too is our relationship with Jesus. The word says that He is a jealous God and wants more of you, more time with you so that He can take you as his bride when He comes to fetch you.
Make time in the morning to spend an hour with Jesus, read the word and pray – then see how your life with change for the better.
1.2. Turn away from sin
TheWord tells us to turn away from sin so that the enemy cannot attack us. Turning away from your old habits, old friends, old sins is not pushing anyone away, it is purely cleansing yourself from the people and habits that got you into this position in the first place. Going back to your old ways will not help you heal and move forward.
John5:14 – “Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee”
1John 5:18 – “We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not”
This is an example of a true story. Amanda came for deliverance and she gave her heart to Jesus. By doing this many curses were broken over her life, her finances began to improve and her life was going much better. She could sleep through the night again without waking up constantly, she no longer heard the voices in the night that continuously spoke to her. But unfortunately Amanda did not fully give her heart to Jesus, she was looking fora quick fix to all her problems. She thought by receiving prayer that all her problems would be solved and everything would be okay again. She chose not to read the bible every day or to have quiet time with Jesus. She also chose not to join a church and so never got the support that she required to get through the maintenance phase. She thought that all was good. She also battled to let go of her old friends that constantly smoked and used drugs for pleasure. Amanda again buckled under the pressure of these friends and started using weed again. At first she thought – just once – but things started spiralling out of control and she was soon using it continuously again. Unfortunately all the issues have returned, she is again seeing spirits in the house following her, the sleepless nights have returned. Amanda is praying but it is not helping! Amanda’s problem was that she did not fully give her heart to Jesus, she did not turn away from the sins of her past. The enemy walks around like a roaring lion and the minute you give into your past sins he will attack again. He will convince you that just once more and then you will let go– the problem is that once more then becomes twice more and eventually you are right back where you started. By going back to her sins Amanda gave satan the key to her life again.
Matthew12:43-45 – 43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
1.3. Your territory must be pure to avoid further attacks from the enemy – clean your home by destroying all items that can give the enemy access to your home
You need to clean your home of any item that goes against the Word of God as soon as possible after receiving deliverance. By having items in your home that goes against the Word of God, will still give satan access to you or your home. This will allow demonic forces the right to attack you, it will open doors to sickness, you will still experience sleepless nights, etc.. A few examples of items that need to be removed and destroyed are woodcarvings, statues, fairies, vampire movies, super hero themes and movies etc. If you were demonically possessed these items can open doors for those demons to return. Once you have destroyed the objects you will need to seal off your home– but more about this is available in our teaching: “Your territory must be clean”
1.4. Join other believers
Join the Soldiers 4 Christ team or any other Christian group on a Sunday for service– this will assist you in building you up your spiritually. We cannot walk this road alone. Jesus has also sent out two, two. The word says that two is better than one. So do not hesitate to contact any of the leadership group for help or guidance.
1.5. Find out what demons were taken out of you
Ask the person who did your deliverance which demonic forces were driven out of you. Take time to get to know what you did to allow these demons into your body or where was the legal right. Then understand that you cannot ever go back to doing that again as the demons will then have open doors or access to attack you again.
Soldiers4 Christ offers Demonology courses where you can learn more about the spirit world. It will help you as well to understand the rankings and legal rights of the enemy and how it can be broken. There are 3 levels to the course.
The demons will try to return and as soon as you recognise the old thought patterns that you had before deliverance you need to stand firm against them by saying out loud that you refuse to allow them access in the name of Jesus Christ Yeshua Hammasiach.
1.6. Have control over your thoughts
Demons will take control of you again if you allow them access by being undisciplined and having a don’t care attitude. Your mind is a battlefield. 2Corinthians 10:5 – “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”
1.7. Be careful of smoking
Smoking opens doors for demons and curses to return. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 – “16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
2. What sins open doors
After deliverance be VERY careful not to go down the paths that led to your deliverance in the first place. Take special care not to smoke again as this can give the enemy legal right again to bring back every curse that you have been freed from. We get called by God to sanctification and cleansing for our own safety and protection so that the enemy does not have legal right to attack you.
1John 5:18 says – “We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not”
Mathew12:45 – “Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that manis worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation”
Do not fall back into a sinfull patern

- Do not tell lies and do not steal from others – Exodus 20
- Do not visit fortune tellers or witchdoctors – Deuteronomy18:10
- Do not listen to heavy metal music or music with foul language. Do not watch movies with vampires or occult connections. By doing this you are giving satan the honour.

3. Why smoking is wrong
- Let’s have a look at what the word says in Revelations. Satan is a dragon and he blows smoke and fire through his mouth and nostrils. In theWord God says that he made us in His image. The question is therefore when you smoke who do you resemble? Abba Father or satan?
- Smoking damages the temple of God. In this case the temple is your body. – Hebrews 9
- When you smoke you give satan and his demons the right to attack you and even possess you again.
4. What happens if i have sinned again?
1John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”
It’s true that we are only human, we will make mistakes, that is why Jesus Yeshua Hammasiach died for us. But we must be careful for deliberate sin, when you know something is wrong, but you still do it any way. If you have negative thoughts or you have sinned, you need to repent immediately. Ask Father God to help you and to take every negative thought captive, and to keep you in obedience withand for Him. Bind your thoughts and ask Father God to sanctify your brain impulses. DO NOT return to the past where satan had a hold on you. Remember that any negative thoughts and lies are from satan – he is themaster of lies and manipulation. If satan tries to convince you that you are not truly free then use the Word of God to stand against him. By doing this he will flee from you.
