Obeying the Holy Spirit in the call to Deliver.

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:1,2 NKJVDeliverance-1

This passage directs qualified, spiritually equipped believers to be available to minister restoration to fellow believers who have fallen aside or been trapped or bound by sin.

This topic is going to come to the forefront in the body of Christ as the days get darker. Far too many Christians are squeamish and in fear when this topic is mentioned. And why is that? “Don’t scare the sheep” is the motto that is prevalent in far too many fellowships.  Recently a Pastor of forty years admitted he had never dealt with a demonic spirit. What would these so called Pastors do when a person’s vocal cords are held by an unclean spirt making the person not able to confess one’s sin?

Far too many churches are so caught up in the latest entertainment provided by the Laodicean church.

So, how are brethren to help one trapped in sin? The answer is within you, ask the Holy Spirit to show you how.

John 11:44 illustrates this principle of restoration freeing the bound/trapped/fallen. Following Lazarus’s being raised from the dead, he is still encumbered with his grave clothes—a man with a new lease on life, still needing release from the trappings of the past (the linen strips—grave clothes).

Note that Jesus told His disciples to “Loose him, and let him go,” entrusting the completion of the miracle He began to care and ministry of those He assigned. Today, Jesus Christ still entrusts the reborn/forgiven soul to ministry of caring disciples wherever or whenever bondages residual to an individual’s past threaten his or her growth in the family of God.

In one’s new life, forgiveness of all sin is secured instantly through justification by faith in Christ, But additional ministry is often needed to help with breaking old sin patterns called structures.

The law of Christ is to love one another as He loves us. “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34.
