VII. PREPARATION FOR SUPERNATURAL MINISTRY


General Principles

  • Maintain a Spirit-filled life—not just speaking in tongues, but receiving the power of God for signs, wonders, healings, miracles as needed in ministry

    • Receive fillings regularly

    • Receive fresh anointings

    • Be totally surrendered to Lordship of Christ

    • Consecrate yourself daily


  • Recognize hindrances to God’s power

    • Spiritual laziness, lethargy, lukewarmness

    • Doubt and unbelief

    • The SIN of prayerlessness


How to Work the Works of God

  • Sobering Thought: False religions, using occult powers, are showing more supernatural power than the average present-day church.


  • Exciting Fact: Jesus said His followers will do the same works that He did—and greater (in number) because there are many of us (Jn 14:12)


  • Question: “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” (Jn. 6:28)


The Answer

  • Be honest

    • Admit your need of God’s power, strength, and anointing

    • Repent of lukewarmness, prayerlessness, doubt


  • Commit to do what the New Testament says we can and will do.

  • Ask for the supernatural gift of faith to believe that God’s power and authority will work through you.

  • Pray for boldness, anointing, and gifting


5 Characteristics of Early Church

  • Full of Holy Spirit, controlled by and dependent on Him

  • Strong prayer life

  • Bonded together in love and unity

  • Supernatural boldness – from being with Jesus

  • Ministered supernaturally to needs of people

    • Healed sick; delivered oppressed

    • Operated in all the gifts


We must contend for supernatural ministry

  • Become dissatisfied with where we are today

  • Advance into new areas of spiritual growth and victory

  • Persist, pursue, press in—and break through into new levels of authority and power


Daniel 11:32

“But the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”


Practical GuidelinesforSupernatural Ministry

  • Practice righteousness – 2 Chron. 7:14

  • Pray and fast

  • “Live” in the Word to become full of faith

  • Get into the spirit of Worship—not just an event

  • Promote Koinonia – fellowship and bonding


  • Live with eternity’s values in view

  • Pay the price for miracle faith – more than mental assent, but absolute certainty that NO situation is beyond God’s power to change

  • Recognize God’s sovereignty – trust His perfect knowledge and love – He does not owe us

    any explanation

  • Get involved in evangelism – promise of supernatural signs accompanies the Great Commission


Ministry of Deliveranceand Exorcism


Causes of Demonization

  • Personal Invitation – deliberate involvement

  • Habitual Sin – Rebellion

  • Victimization – negative reactions to being harmed

  • Invitation of Others – children dedicated to gods or spirits

  • Inheritance/Environment

  • Curses – limited powers


Symptoms of Demonization

  • Anesthetic – cannot feel pain

  • Blasphemy

  • Clouding of consciousness

  • Convulsions – thrown to ground/shaking

  • Terrifying dreams

  • Eyes cloudy, rolling back in head

  • Falling during prayer

  • Foaming at mouth


  • Fits of rage, violence, screaming

  • Knowledge

  • Languages

  • Personality changes – toward evil

  • Physical impairments

  • Reaction to Christians during exorcism – spit, scratch, stick out tongue

  • Unusual strength

  • Voice alteration

    NOTE: Not always are these signs of demonization, so

    be led by Spirit in diagnosing


Ministering Deliverance


General Observations

  • Deliverance is not always fast and easy.

  • Miracle faith is essential.

  • Ministry should be done by teams of mature believers.

  • Focus more on the garbage than on the rats!

  • Person must desire deliverance.

  • Minister in love – you are working with a person!

  • Be open to God working in different ways.


Preparation for Deliverance

  • Personal prayer, fasting, cleansing

  • Team – select mature, gifted, prayerful people

  • Pre-counseling – look for entry points, anything that gives Satan “legal rights”


Deliverance Session

  • Opening Prayer of Authority

  • Confession, Repentance, Renouncement

  • Forgiveness of Others

  • Allegiance and Commitment to God

  • Commanding of Demons

  • Prayer for Filling of Spirit

  • Prayer Sealing Deliverance


Deliverance Follow-Up
