SEVEN WAYS TO DETERMINE THE NEED FOR DELIVERANCE (EXCERPTS)
The presence and nature of evil spirits can be known by two principle methods:
1. discernment: I Cor. 12:10 lists "discerning of spirits" as one of the nine supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit.
2. detection: the second method of knowing the presence and nature of evil spirits. Detection is simply observing what spirits are doing to a person (Mark 7:24-30).
Some of the most common symptoms of indwelling demons are as follows:
1. Disturbances in the emotions which persist or recur.
2. Disturbances in the mind or thought life.
3. Outbursts or uncontrolled use of the tongue.
4. Recurring unclean thoughts and acts regarding sex.
5. Addictions to nicotine, alcohol, drugs, medicines, caffeine, food, etc.
6. Many diseases and physical afflictions are due to spirits of infirmity (Luke 13:11).
Involvement to any degree in religious error can open the door for demons as follows:
1. False religions - Eastern religions, pagan religions, philosophies, and mind sciences.
2. Christian Cults - all such cults may be classified as "bloodless religions" - having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof" (II Tim. 3:5).
3. Occult and Spiritism - Any method of seeking supernatural knowledge, wisdom, guidance and power apart from God is forbidden (Deut. 18:9-15)!
4. False Doctrine - a great increase of doctrinal errors will be promoted by deceiving and seducing spirits in the last days (I Tim. 4:1).
SEVEN STEPS TO DELIVERANCE (EXCERPTS)
One must be honest with himself and with God if he expects to receive God's blessing of deliverance. Ask God to help you see yourself as He sees you and to bring to light anything that is not of Him (Psalm 32:5; 139:23-24).
1. Humility involves a recognition that one is dependent upon God and His provisions for deliverance (James 4:6-7). It also involves a complete openness with God's servants ministering in the deliverance (James 5:16).
2. Repentance is a determined turning away from sin and Satan (Amos 3:3). One must loathe his sins (Ezekiel 20:43).
3. Renunciation is the forsaking of evil. Renunciation is action resulting from repentance (Matt. 3:7-8). If one has repented of religious error, he may need to completely renounce it by destroying all literature and items associated with that error (Acts 19:18-19).
God freely forgives all who confess their sins and ask forgiveness through His Son (I John 1:9). He expects us to forgive all others who have ever wronged us in any way (Matt. 6:14-15). Willingness to forgive is absolutely essential to deliverance (Matt. 18:21-35).
In prayer ask God to deliver you and set you free in the name of Jesus (Joel 2:32).
Prayer and warfare are two separate and distinct activities. Our warfare against demon powers is not fleshly but spiritual (Eph. 6:10-12 ; II Cor. 10:3-5). Use the weapons of submission to God, the blood of Jesus Christ, the Word of God, and your testimony as a believer (James 4:7; Rev. 12:11; Eph. 6:17). Christ cannot fail! He is the Deliverer (Mark 16:17; Luke 10:19; Psalm 18:2)!
SEVEN STEPS FOR RETAINING DELIVERANCE (EXCERPTS)
Put on the whole armour of God as set forth in Eph. 6:10-18. There are seven pieces of armour:
1. Loins girt about with truth.
2. The breastplate of righteousness.
3. Feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace.
4. The shield of faith.
5. The helmet of salvation.
6. The sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.
7. Praying in the Spirit.
Refuse the thoughts that demons give you and replace them with spiritual thoughts (Phil. 4:8).
Positive confession is faith expressed. Negative confessions characterize demonic influence and will open the door to the enemy (Mark 11:23).
Jesus withstood Satan's temptation by using Scripture. The Word is a mirror to the soul (James 1:22-25); it is a lamp unto the feet for guidance (Psalm 119:105); it is a cleansing agent (Eph. 5:25-26); it is a two-edged sword, laying bare the heart (Heb. 4:12); and it is food for the spirit (I Pet. 2:2 ; Matt. 4:4). No person can long maintain deliverance apart from the Word of God as a primary factor in his life (Psalm 1:1-3)!
Take up your cross daily and follow Jesus (Luke 9:23). If fleshly appetites, desires and lusts are not brought to the cross, a way for demons to return will be left open (Gal. 5:19-21, 24).
Develop a life of continuous praise and prayer which silences the enemy. Pray in the Spirit (in tongues) and also in the understanding (I Cor. 14:14). Pray without ceasing (I Thess. 5:17).
Maintain a life of fellowship and spiritual ministry. It is the sheep that wanders from the flock that is most endangered. Desire spiritual gifts and yield to their operation through you within the body of Christ (I Cor. 12:7-14).
Commit yourself totally to Christ. Determine that every thought, word and action will reflect the very nature of Christ. Faith and trust in God is the greatest weapon against the Devil's lies (Eph. 6:16).
Doing these seven things will insure that your "house" (life) is filled after having been cleansed. Do not settle for anything less (Romans 5:10)!
HOW TO KEEP FREE FROM OPPRESSING SPIRITS (EXCERPTS)
Fill yourself with the Word of God and be obedient to what the Word says. You become God-possessed as you hear and do the Words of the Father. You become demon-possessed as you hear and do the words of the enemy (John 14:23).
Avail yourself of the Blood of Jesus. Learn to ask forgiveness when you sin. Learn to stand tall in His love and grace. Satan must respect the blood (Rev. 12:11).
Take your freedom by faith. This is your position, declare it, stand on the Word, get stubborn with the Devil, this is your heritage (Luke 10:19).
Resist the Devil, be sober and vigilant, resist steadfast in the faith, and he will flee from you (I Peter 5:8-10).
1. A loving spirit is needed. Refuse to be hateful and mean; confess love (Matt. 5:44).
2. A forgiving spirit is needed; an unforgiving spirit lets the enemy on you again (Mark 11:25).
3. A tender spirit is needed. Jesus did not bite back. He was tender: you be like Him. Refuse to yield to the retaliation spirit; away with critical spirits. Learn to recognize the striving spirit, it is from the Devil, do not yield to it; it will bring you into bondage again. Learn to yield to the peaceable spirit; be a peacemaker. Learn to exercise mercy and gentleness; these are Christ-like actions. Remember any enemy spirit that you yield to will bring bondage. Yield to Christ's love, meekness and tenderness, and liberation comes (II Tim. 2:24).
You must forsake sin lest a worse thing come upon you (John 5:14).
HOLDING YOUR DELIVERANCE (TESTIMONY OF A WOMAN)
After Pastor Worley cast out spirits of sinus trouble and migraine headaches, I had three glorious weeks of freedom from any pain.
Suddenly one morning I awoke shocked to find I had all the symptoms of sinus and migraine.
When I realized what was happening, I took authority over Satan and his demons and commanded them to leave me in Jesus' name.
Later the same morning this happened, I received a letter from Pastor Worley warning the Devil would use this very tactic but that I must resist him and refuse to accept his attacks.
I believe that, according to Mark 11:23, many times what we say or confess with our lips can be more important than what we believe. The word believe occurs only once in the verse while say is repeated three times. The last part of the passage is he shall have whatsoever he saith.
The submitted, resisting child of God may expect Satan to flee from him (James 4:7). We must learn to hold the deliverance areas against the onslaughts of a determined foe (Joshua 1:7-9; Deut. 28).
WALKING IN FREEDOM AFTER DELIVERANCE (EXCERPTS)
Have you been delivered from unclean spirits? Praise the Lord (Eph. 6:12; Mark 16:17).
Walking in the Spirit after a deliverance is essential in order to keep a person free (Eph. 6:14-17).
It may be that unclean spirits from which you are now free had been with you for a very long time. In such cases, you can expect several weeks up to a year after deliverance during which the Lord will gradually heal your mind and emotions (Rom. 8:37).
In order to avoid the enemy's snares, it helps to recognize some of his strategy. Four typical methods of attack encountered by people after deliverance can be outlined as follows:
The Scriptures say that Satan is the father of lies. Even though they are now outside of you, unclean spirits still talk to you (John 8:36).
One meaning for the word Satan is accuser. You may find yourself feeling guilty for having had unclean spirits or for your past sins (Psalm 13:5).
The enemy may try to intimidate you with demonstrations of his power. Don't be frightened if things seem to go wrong for you for a while or if some symptoms from before deliverance seem to reappear.
You may find yourself tempted with old habits or behavior that doesn't fit in with Christian life. The Devil has a way of making the old times seem rosy to us just like he tricked the Israelites in the desert into missing the "leeks and onions" that they left behind in Egypt (John 10:10; Psalm 37).
Recognizing the enemy's strategy is helpful but it does not win the battle for us. It is more important that you learn and practice some positive principles that will enable you to gain ground quickly and hold it. The following five points are easy to remember and will help you tremendously:
1. Focus your attention on Jesus (Rev. 12:11).
2. Allow the Holy Spirit to have His way with you (John 16:13).
3. Immerse yourself in the Scriptures; the Bible is the written Word of God (John 8:31).
4. Tell the Devil and his unclean spirits in Jesus' name to go away and leave you alone. Make it clear that you intend to follow Jesus no matter what (James 4:7).
5. Hang onto other Christians. The Christian walk is not a solo performance (Gal. 6:2).
6. If you practice these five faith principles, your post-deliverance problems will be minimal and your progress steady (Luke 4:17-21).
EARLINE'S TESTIMONIES ABOUT DELIVERANCE
Scriptural basis is Rev. 12:11 for overcomers. Earline Moody has a good testimony about how the soul (mind, will and emotions) works in maintaining her deliverance.
The scriptural basis for giving a testimony is found in Rev. 12:11 where we overcome Satan by three things: the blood of Jesus, our testimony, and not loving our lives to the death. God told me that if I was unwilling to tell about my deliverance, I would lose it. And furthermore, if I was ashamed of Him and His provisions, He would be ashamed of me in Heaven.
In James 4:7 we are told how to make the Devil flee. We often quote part of the verse "resist the devil and he will flee from you". This gives us a false sense of security. The truth is you must first submit yourself to God. This is not a careless submission but true submission to God which requires us to read, study and obey the Bible. As we submit this way to God and then resist the Devil, he will indeed flee from us. God does not require us to know all the Biblical requirements before He will help us but we must be making every effort to obey all that we have learned, and be diligent about learning and applying more.
After all deliverances, some decisions must be made and never changed no matter how much pressure is applied to you from whatever source to change or go back to old sins. Here are some decisions which must be made: 1. Study God's Word and accept His principles as your own. 2. Discipline your life and accept responsibility for your actions and thoughts in the areas where you have been delivered. 3. Enter His presence with thanksgiving for all with which He has blessed you. 4. Joyfully obey God's direction even if you have to force yourself in the beginning.
The day after I received my main deliverance, I had an empty feeling and did not know what to do. My reaction was to ask God continually for direction.
We cannot do what God directs if we never apply His Word to our life. If we do not apply His Word to our thoughts and actions we are not truly subject to God. Therefore the Devil will not flee from us and we are only fooling ourselves if we think the demons will leave us alone. While we kid ourselves, the Devil and his demons eat our dinner and by the time we face the truth dinner is nearly over.
I learned that I didn't really know God's Word. I didn't know how to use God's Word or how to use my mind. I asked God to take my thoughts. He told me that He wouldn't touch my thoughts with a ten foot pole; that His thoughts were higher than mine and that I must control my thoughts bring them into submission to Jesus Christ (II Cor. 10:5).
I started marking everything that God said in the Bible in red. I found there is much said about the mind in Deuteronomy and throughout the Bible. Next I was impressed to underline every verse in the New Testament that told me something that I should do.
I soon realized that I really didn't know what I should think with my mind. It occurred to me that my mind is to be an instrument for my spirit's use and not the other way around. The hands, feet, eyes, ears and body obey, so why not make the mind obey? To make the mind obey, I needed to know what to make it do.
I had to learn how to tell the difference between God's and the Devil's thoughts. The battleground for the Christian is primarily for his soul, not body or spirit. The demons want to re-enter through your mind.
See Romans 6;16-18. Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to any one to do his will, you are the slaves of him whom you obey, whether it be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness - right doing and right standing with God. But thank God, though you were once slaves of sin you have become obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed. And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness - of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose and action.
How do we yield ourselves to anyone (God or Devil)? Is it not in the mind? A human always plays with sinful thoughts, then he acts it out. It is not by accident we sin. A lot of people do not want to accept the responsibility for their sinfulness and want to blame it on someone else. The only trouble with this idea is that God will not be fooled by it neither will your enemy, the Devil.
Temptation - For no temptation - no trial regarded as enticing to sin (no matter how it comes or where it leads) - has overtaken you and lied hold on you that is not common to man - that is no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear. But God is faithful to His Word and to His compassionate nature and He (can be trusted) not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will (always) provide a way out - the means to escape to a landing plane - that you may be capable and strong and powerful patiently to bear up under it (1 Cor. 10:13).
This tells me temptation in common to mankind, therefore it is common for the Devil and the demons to use it. If they tempt us, we have not sinned. We have sinned when we enjoy and continue to invite the temptation, then yield and obey. the temptation. It also shows we were not watchful for the escape route and we did not take it.
Situations around you will not necessarily change immediately now that you have changed. Just as you practiced obedience to the demons' words, now practice obedience to God's Word.
This is my first encounter with the Devil after I was delivered. Before I was delivered, I would get very angry and depressed when I cleaned house. At that time, we had wall-to-wall furniture. The living room was really badly cluttered. Each piece of furniture had to be moved to vacuum around it. I was happy and didn't hate this house anymore.
As I was vacuuming the living room, I dropped a table on my toe and was having trouble getting the vacuum nozzle under the sofa. I raised up and let out a loud "I hate this---". God quickly warned me that "life and death is in the tongue, and they that love it will eat the fruit thereof" (Prov. 18:21). God also told me at this time that He had given it to my family. If I didn't have an attitude of gratitude about the house and furniture, He could easily remove them from me. I knew that I must not complete the sentence or I would be back where I started from. I repented and repeated until I believed it, "I love this house and I thank God for it".
Another of Satan's tactics is to use gradualism on us. He will give us a sin to look at and consider. He will cover it over with pretty lies (pretty young people smoking, never an old person dying of lung cancer). He will use rejection to trap you; he will never tell the true ending (where does illegal sex lead?). He knows that the more we see it, hear it and consider it, the more likely we are to give in to it. A good example of the use of gradualism is Humanism. Forty years ago it was very mildly given to people mainly by pastors and teachers. People considered it and accepted it because it was given by people they trusted. Not considering what was the basic theory behind it (worship of self - therefore idolatry), people allowed this theory to so invade them that now we cannot recognize it for what it is. Many of us say we are against it but we live by it instead of the Bible.
We do not recognize God's provisions for us. We think our life should have no problems or privations. We are not grateful to God for all. Deut. 28:47-48, Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness of heart and mind in gratitude for the abundance of all with which He had blessed you, therefore you shall serve your enemies whom the Lord shall send against you, in hunger and thrust, in nakedness, and in want of all things; and He will put a yoke of iron upon you neck, until He hath destroyed you.
This verse presents some interesting ideas 1. Are you having problems because you are ungrateful to God? 2. Do you know which problems are from God to help you learn to endure to the end or which ones are brought on because of being ungrateful? 3. Which ones have you invited by yielding to temptations of the enemy? If you will know the answer to these questions, you will have to seek God. He has promised to give wisdom to all who ask for it not wavering (James 1:4-8). If you ask God for wisdom and He gives you wisdom, you must not waver following His wisdom. For example: if you have been one to look at dirty magazines, God's wisdom tells you this will lead you to want to do what you see; then you must stop it. You may need deliverance for the demons you have let in plus you must change your habits. No one can change your thought life by casting out your demons. Casting out your demons is one of God's escape routes. The deliveree must discipline the mind and actions.
The best attack against habit, and the attempts of demons to trick you and get back in that I found was 1. to tell them to leave in Jesus' name once and 2. immediately take control of your mind. I would do it this way: I would tell them Jesus has given me authority over you (Luke 10:19, Matt. 28:18-20), therefore I command you to leave me now. If I did not sense they were gone, I would say, "Since you are still here, I would like to read to you about what Jesus Christ has done for me." I would open the Bible to Matt. 26-28, Mark 14-16, Luke 22-24 and John 17-21 and read it aloud to them. Of course they did not want to hear of God's love and provision for me. The pressure they had placed on me and their thoughts were long gone but I would read on and bless myself in God's Word. Some times the pressure from the demons trying to get back in was strong enough that I would have to walk and read very loudly to them. I will still do this if I come under attack; it always works. After a time, you will be able to tell them the facts without reading it to them.
God also told me at this time that He had given it to my family. If I didn't have an attitude of gratitude about the house and furniture, He could easily remove them from me (Deut. 27:48).
My next attack was sent through people. When asked why I looked so much better and was losing weight, I would answer truthfully and say "I was delivered of demons and no, I was not dieting". If three people were present, you would get three distinct reactions. One would leave pronto, one would regard you as if you were radioactive, and one would grab your arm and want to know more.
Then you'd hear whispers - she had demons! They only talk about demons; do they worship them? They are fanatical; they believe there is a demon under every bush!
Next I was tempted to go back to some of my old habits of retaliation, etc. I must crucify the flesh - God said that vengeance belongs to Him (Rom. 12:19). I must not habitually sin or else I become the demon's house in that area again (I John 3:8-9).
Mental suggestions by the Devil must be put down. He will suggest a what if, could be or maybe. If this happens, what will you do (fear and more fear)? Unless you have facts to base your knowledge on, don't let the Devil play you along.
One of his tactics was to attack me about Marie: what if Marie can't adjust to her brother's death? Before deliverance, I would cringe in fear and worry. After deliverance, I learned to tell Satan that Marie can do all things through Christ who strengthens her; I can too!
You don't have to be perfect to give a word of encouragement, share an experience, help someone or even cast out a demon. If God demanded perfection, nothing would ever get done. I'm over fifty years old and I have yet to meet a perfect person.
You must have a total commitment to Jesus Christ. Rely totally on Him and His Word. Do these things and you will continue to get free and stay free. Don't be double minded: deciding and undeciding. Remember that a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. Giver very careful study to what you read in THE BIBLE and carefully compare it to the thing you need to make a decision on. When you have judged it by the Biblical instructions, then don't waver.
I found a verse, Heb. 12:4, to put my temptations in prospective. Begin reading at verse one which contains instruction on keeping pure. It suggests we strip off and throw aside every encumbrance and sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race set before us. Looking away (from all that will distract) to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the source of our faith (giving the first incentive for our belief) and is also its Finisher, (bringing it to maturity and perfection). He, for the joy (of obtaining the prize) that was set before Him endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame,and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Just think of Him who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against - reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials - so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds. You have not yet struggled and fought agonizing against sin, nor have you yet resisted and withstood to the point of pouring out your (own) blood.
If we are able with every temptation to resist to the shedding of our blood maybe, then we might have an acceptable excuse for failing to resist the Devil and him having to flee.
God will not make you over; He will work with you and help you. See Mark 16:20. A miracle is taking place as you go obeying The Word in the areas you have received instruction and deliverance.
A study of Matt. Chapter 5 will help anyone see just where they are missing it with their attitudes. It will inspire you to clear your mind of a lot of incorrect ideas and to broaden your understanding of the truth.
Schizophrenia means split mind (schizein = to split and phren = mind). I had a lifetime of mental and emotional tension. I was unable to decide what to do and see it through. I had many fears that something bad was going to happen. All of my life I had great fears of bad things happening: fears of failing and fears of people. I was often tense for weeks and I did not know why.
This is the earliest memory I have of going to school. I was so afraid of all the people I could not go into the school but hid behind the well house until my brother, Clyde, came and took me into the first grade. I was disoriented that day; strange feelings and fears tormented me.
I have very few memories from childhood below the age of nine or ten years. Generally speaking I lived in two worlds; home and away from home. I became very good at forgetting everything bad (parents' fights and my own troubles) that happened at home the minute I walked out the door. I felt more freedom and ease away from home.
At high school and college I had trouble with certain subjects like algebra and chemistry. They had things too similar for me to distinguish between them.
Both of these subjects ended in frustration and low grades for me. In my marriage I had some problems of accepting my husband as one who would provide for me, take care of me, and continue to love me. I was always expecting the marriage to end badly. After six years of marriage, we had a delightful son and two years later we had a beautiful daughter.
Double mindedness wears the person out, and frustrates and confuses him. Deciding, then undeciding stagnates a person. For example, my mom was here for a while; she couldn't be content for desiring to go home. When at home, she was pressed to stay somewhere else besides her home. When away from home, great fears filled her about the house. She was miserable and made those around her miserable (James 1:5-8).
Deliverance From Indian Curses
What are the effect of curses? I had a heart condition which was unusual. It never occurred with regularity nor under any specific condition.
While taking a tread mill test, I experienced tremendous pain in the chest, arms and neck. Having been examined by a heart specialist in Minneapolis, who told me that my heart was good but he had written death by heart attack on many people's certificates like myself. These were people who didn't really have anything wrong with their hearts.
A year or so after my dad's death I found my heart acting up again. Sometimes one to five years would elapse between seizures. I began to ask God to show me why my brothers, dad, dad's brothers and his dad all had heart problems.
He showed me Ezekiel 18 " Exodus 20. He told me to repent for my ancestors and myself for the sin of idol worship in Leviticus 26:40-41. The curse of idol worship follows the blood line. I did these things and have been free for over eleven years. I was only the second generation from previous generations that sinned before God.
BY THIS I OVERCOME THE DEVIL (EXCERPTS)
1. Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the Devil (Eph. 1:7).
2. Through the blood of Jesus, all my sins are forgiven (Psa. 107:2).
3. The blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son, continually cleanses me from all sin (I John 1:7).
4. Through the blood of Jesus, I am justified, made righteous, just-as-if I'd never sinned (Rom. 5:9).
5. Through the blood of Jesus, I am sanctified, made holy, set apart to God (Heb. 13:12).
6. My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, by the blood of Jesus (I Cor. 6:19-20).
7. Satan has no place in me, no power over me, through the Blood of Jesus and the Word of God (Rev. 12:11).
TAKE HEAVEN BY FORCE
We are not wrestling against the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but against Satan and his forces of evil. God has given us the abundant life but we have to take it by force from Satan! This is analogous to Israel; God gave them the promised land and then told them to take it by force (Eph. 6:12).
Two verses clearly illustrate this Bible principle:
Matt. 11:12Kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by force (abode of God is to be seized and the forces seized it).
Luke 16:16Kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it (rule of Supreme Deity is preached and every man forces into it).
Some other good fighting verses are:
Psalm 57:6They have digged a pit before me.
Isa. 54:17No weapon formed against thee shall prosper.
Matt. 15:26The woman fought for deliverance for her child (15:21-28)!
II Cor. 10:3-6Weapons of our warfare.
Eph. 6:10-18Put on the whole armour of God.
Rev. 12:11And they overcame him.
HOW TO TREAT DEMONS
Matt. 9:33Cast - to eject, drive out, pluck (Dumb Demoniac).
Matt. 9:34Casteth - thrust out, expel (Dumb Demoniac).
Matt. 17:18Rebuked - censure, admonish, tax upon (Epileptic).
Mark 1:34Suffered - to send forth (Sick or possessed with demons).
Luke 11:14Casting - put out, send away (Demon that was dumb.).
Eph. 4:27Place - location, condition (Gave no opportunity to the Devil.).
James 4:7Resist - oppose, withstand (Resist the Devil.).
II Pet. 2:11Railing - blasphemer, slanderous, profane, wicked (Judgement)
I John 3:8Destroy - loosen, break up, put off (Destroy works of Devil.).
Jude 9Railing - vilification, evil speaking (Reviling Judgement).
As you can see from the above scripture, we forcefully drive demons out of Christians but we do not rail at demons.
Luke 9:1 says we have power and authority (mastery, superhuman force, violence, control) and Luke 10:7 says the demons are subject (subordinate, obey) to Christians.
STUDY OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS
The Old Testament told of rites and bloody sacrifices of the law to redeem the people from their sins which foretold the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ.
The New Testament told of dignity and perfection of the blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
The following scriptures will give you an overall view of what the Bible says about the blood of Jesus (Bold verses are more important):
