This chapter is dedicated to finding freedom from programming that is connecting people to the spirit of the antichrist, and freedom from the control and influence of the demonic, in particular, the fallen angels. But the points in this chapter are basic, and can be used as a general outline on finding freedom and healing from a myriad of spiritual issues.
→ Please Note: in this chapter, we are not trying to say that rebuking demons in Jesus name “does not work” and that you need something more powerful. In the situations we are addressing in this chapter, we are speaking of people who have many open doorways for the demonic to come in and influence and control, and for those who are dissociative, they may be dealing with alters keeping those doorways open and they don’t even realize it. We are also speaking of programming that is being held in place by the demonic, and closing these doorways and getting rid of programming takes time. Furthermore, there are many verses in the Bible that explain to us how to find freedom and keep our freedom from demonic influence. It is not just a cut-and-dried, “Get behind me Satan” one-time thing. In fact, we don’t know of anyone who has ever had to rebuke a demon or the fallen only once and then was never harassed or bothered again. That is simply not sound Biblical theology. This is an ongoing battle that each of us must fight, not a one-time deal and we’re done.
Some Scriptures for contemplation:
James 4:7-10 (KJV)
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”
1 John 4:3-4 (BSB)
“(A)nd every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is already in the world at this time. You, little children, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.” (emphasis added)
The basic process of finding freedom from programming and finding freedom and deliverance from the control and influence of the demonic, including fallen angels, is pretty much the same. It can be very difficult to stand against the magnetic glamour of the fallen, and sometimes the process of getting rid of programming can feel overwhelming or complicated. But the process is actually relatively simple, although not necessarily quick. The secret is this: a relationship with your Heavenly Father.
There can be a difference, however, in how the process goes for a non-dissociative person versus an individual who is dissociative, depending upon the intensity and degree of dissociation. Although both groups of people (dissociative and non-dissociative) will find each section helpful (and we hope both groups take the time to read both sections), we will address the issues one at a time, beginning with how the average, non-dissociative person can find freedom.
