Deliverance and Spiritual Warfare 101, Part 3: Identity

In part three of the series, “Deliverance and Spiritual Warfare 101,” we discuss some of the dynamics of the mentality that causes people to become wrapped up in an ungodly identity that is difficult or impossible to let go. And we make our plea to those caught up in these ungodly doctrines to go back to the basics: go back to the Word of God and be reconciled with the Father.

The following is a recorded video conversation between Carolyn Hamlett and Loren Grace. It is not an interview.

In an attempt to find deliverance from their complicated problems, some individuals get caught up in ungodly spiritual warfare through “deliverance” counseling, eventually getting caught up in occult doctrines and in practicing occult activities. In spite of being repeatedly warned and shown the truth of the witchcraft in which they have become involved, they often continue along that path, and fear of losing their identity is a major reason why.

This fear is a huge motivating factor as to why some self-proclaimed Christians who are caught up in occult activities and doctrines, refuse to disengage themselves with such practices, and refuse to repent and submit to God.

They begin to identify with the warring spirit that the demonic are encouraging within them and working through them: it becomes who they are.

They begin to identify with their occult gifts and abilities: it becomes what motivates and drives them.

And ultimately, because of their refusal to heed the repeated warnings, and because of their refusal to turn away from that which they know is not of God, they begin to identify with the demonic themselves. The nature of the demonic becomes their very identity, yet because they have refused to love the truth, they fall into delusion, and call that which is of Satan to be of God, and that which is of God to be of Satan. They have allowed themselves to become deluded to the point where they are absolutely convinced that they are mirroring the image of God, and they are unable to see that they are reflecting the image of the one (Satan) whom they are serving and to whose will they have submitted.
