MK 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive
out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
The way that evil spirits are driven out and away from a human is by the power of the
name of Jesus Christ and faith. Demons are like spiritual cockroaches and they are attracted to the garbage of our sin. God
gave Jesus full authority over all evil spirits, so when we use His name to drive them out then we have the legal right to
evict them. But you must do this in faith and believe that God will help you. After I had been involved with heavy addiction
for so long the Lord led me to go through a deliverance from demons. It wasn't pretty or fun to undergo, but it was necessary.
You wouldn't leave cancer in your body, so neither should you leave the spiritual cancer of evil spirits in your life pushing
you to return to your sin. Just pray for God to show you the right time for a deliverance session and He will help you. God
will set you free.
LK 11:24 (Jesus speaking) "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then
it says, `I will return to the house I left.' 25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. 26 Then
it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that
man is worse than the first."
Also, be sure that you really want to be free from your addiction before you try to evict anything
that may be driving your obsession. Otherwise you may be in even a worse situation with evil spirits than before. Remember,
you have the ability to say no to anything. If you went to church and someone told you to take off your clothes would you?
No you wouldn't, because you would just refuse. Nobody can force you to do anything, the choice has been yours all along.
Likewise, nobody can force you to practice addiction, it has been your choice as well, but usually there does need to be some
healing to get rid of the old unhealed pain, and there may need to be some deliverance from evil spirits for you to truly
get free from the inside out. God will help you with everything at the right time, so trust Him to deliver you from evil spirits.
Here is a prayer you can pray for yourself or others to get rid of all evil spirits;
"Lord God, I repent of my sin that has allowed any evil spirit to have power over me in any
way, and I renounce any and all sin that I have ever committed that has attracted any demonic activity in my life. Now in
the name of Jesus Christ, I command any and all evil spirits to be bound and to be banished from my life forever. I apply
the blood of Jesus Christ upon my body, spirit, soul, and mind, and also upon my home and everything in it. I thank you Lord
Jesus for setting me free from the power of evil spirits, and I ask that you would now fill me afresh with your Holy Spirit.
In Jesus name I pray, amen".
* NOTE; It also may help to get extra assistance from a fellow Christian that you know deals
with deliverance ministry. Also it will help to get rid of anything in the house that has been connected to your addiction,
because it is a landing strip (a volition of will) for them the spirits to return. Below is a guide that lists the different
stages of spiritual bondage.
A person can deliver self from the following:
Regression . . . going backward in spiritual growth and power.Repression . . . fear, ignorance,
or indifference keep knowledge of demons hidden. Satan steals your joy. (Within).Suppression . . . listless, inactive, disinterested.
Suppression of feelings. (Without).Depression . . . broken spirit . . . inactivity.Oppression . . . weigh you down with something
you are not able to carry. Disease is a weapon of oppression.
At this stage the person will need help from another with deliverance:
Obsession . . . changes the mind (black is white, straight is crooked). Comes through believing
a lie, jealousy, hatred. No will power.Possession . . . no mind of your own. Seen often as insanity.
More scriptures to help you;
LK 4:33 In the synagogue (This was someone who
went to church) there was a man possessed by a demon, an evil spirit. He cried
out at the top of his voice, 34 "Ha! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who
you are--the Holy One of God!"
LK 4:35 "Be quiet!" Jesus said sternly. "Come out of him!" Then the demon threw the man down
before them all and came out without injuring him.
LK 4:36 All the people were amazed and said to each other, "What is this teaching? With authority
and power he gives orders to evil spirits and they come out!" 37 And the news about him spread throughout the surrounding
MK 9:23 " `If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
MK 9:24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"
MK 9:25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. "You
deaf and mute spirit," he said, "I command you, come out of him and never enter him again."
MK 9:26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like
a corpse that many said, "He's dead." 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
