Are You Casting Out Devils

A man said this to me. If you were a Christian you would be casting out devils since this is the first sign listed that will follow those that believe (Mark 16:17). Could you please help me with an answer for this man?

All the gifts of the Holy Spirit are conditional,If we are strong in the word of God have a good understanding what we are doing and as Jesus did he always used the authority of Gods word then we can attempt to "Cast out Demons" we should also be "Spirit Filled"

In the world today, people are looking each other instead of the real problem. Devils, demons, principalities of darkness is where the bible says our fight should be centered. People are under the influence of satan. The people of God are not standing up for God, I can go deeper...
In order to address anything you have to first look at God then satans invovlement. Today the voice of satan is running the world. Seek the power, call and cast out demons. BE BLESSED ITNOJ !!!!

Ask him when was the last time he picked up a poison snake ,drank poison,or raised the dead. Also ask why does he think the first sign listed is anymore important than everything else God does? God is an awesome God and anything He does is wonderous to behold from the smallest answered prayer to the largest miracle. One should never pick one thing to be more important, for with God all things are equal. Glory to God they are!

The devil in the microwave, and puppies. I vote the devil is often in the television, what comes out of it is often pure evil.

While in an emergency, anyone may be called upon to cast out a devil, it takes discernment and spiritual experience to know for sure if something is being caused by demons.

I know a woman who blamed anything she didn't like happenning on demons, including her being fired and a failed marriage. Her own bad choices and poor judgement and pride never seemd to have occurred to her.

Another time I sensed that the devil was messing with my little puppy.... I cast a spirit of infirmity out of her, upon which she sicked up and laid down and slept very peacefully. These are the only times I have cast devils out, so it is not a given in my daily walk... I did it because I was confronted with it.

Just after I got saved, I "cast" the devil out of my microwave -- I recognised the evil one was trying to break it soon as I prayed the devil left and the microwave worked for many more years until it's life span was gone.

I had a young friend come to me in a panic so explosive he couldn't speak. I asked God what I should do, He told me the young man had demons and proceeded to tell me what I needed to cast out. I called out the 3 demons in Jesus' name, as the man growled and groaned. After the 3rd was called out, he started to go limp and said "I feel free."
My husband put a chair behind him so he wouldn't fall on the floor. God told me what to do, and I did it, ALL glory to Him.

You have to have the anointing to cast out devils. Not everyone can because we all move in different gifts with our anointing. People who move in Healing may not move in deliverance. People who have the gift of Faith may not move in deliverance. If God anointed you for casting out devils, tell that man you would be doing it, amen? I have seen a Pastor trying to command demons to come out of a person and did more harm to that person because they didn't come out. It disappointed that person deeply.

Jesus healed many who were oppressed by devils (Acts 10:38). Christians can't be possessed by devils but can be oppressed by devils . In Mark 9:19, Jesus didn't pray for healing for the sickness...he healed by casting out the devils. All sickness is from the devil, although God can allow it.

In the famous words of Mary, right before Jesus turned the water into wine, "Whatever He says to you, do it."

Part 4:
4) Your biggest fight will not be against demons but those people influenced by the demons and many they are believers.
5) There are no formulas that will work the same every time or on every demonic influence.
6) It is not something to be taken lightly or to go looking for. It can backfire on you. Remember the seven sons of Sceva!
---Fred_S. on 4/3/06

Part 3:
1) Know Jesus as your Savior and God.
2) Remember who you are fighting. Not the people but the demonic influence.
3) Remember to be prepared and to put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18).
---Fred_S. on 4/3/06

Part 2:
So as you deal with demonic influences remember it is the demon behind the person. The sad thing is many times those people will be believers who Satan has used in some way to disrupt our lives. Here are some important steps to take.
---Fred_S. on 4/3/06

Be strong with the Lords mighty power. Put on all of Gods armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:10-12). Remember that we are not fighting people. Remember that Satan attacks us through people.

Tell him, Yes, Christ lives in me, and I am a Christian, but what faith are you? Do you have a devil that you want me to cast out? And will you become a Christian too?

I never have been able to do that, cast out devils. I know Jesus can and will though. I try to obey what he wants me to do. I can do any through him. I know he sometimes has a problem doing anything through me (smile). In training.
---Alexandra on 4/2/06

Tell him that Jesus also said that the only way to cast out devils is by prayer and fasting and in his (Jesus) name. One can't just walk up to a demon and say, get out of there boy, I'll give you what for. No, it don't work that way. Not all will be able to do this gift. One must have the power of God dwelling in them and the faith before they can even attempt this.
---Rebecca_D on 4/2/06

Ask him why he needs proof. Sounds kind of like the temptations Jesus dealt with. "If" you be the Son of God, then "do this". You have to remember that even Jesus, when in a town full of unbelief, only healed a few sick folks who came to Him. He never was out to prove who He was. He was out to reveal the Father's heart.
