5) What is Deliverance Ministry?

By Doris Wagner - Doris specializes in training up the Body of Christ for the ministry of deliverance. She is author of “How to Cast Out Demons: A Beginners Guide”

I believe an excellent definition for deliverance can be found in the unabridged dictionary, of all places. Although certainly not theologically slanted, the dictionary gives a very accurate definition. Definition #7 for “deliver” reads, “To set free or liberate: They were delivered from bondage.” Two synonyms for definition #7 are “emancipate” and “release.” In this book, we will be using the word with this exact definition in mind. The fact that the italicized phrase “They were delivered from bondage” was used gave this definition a perfect meaning for our purposes.

Much of a general ministry of deliverance can be learned. I would even say that it could be an acquired skill, and that with experience and the help of the Holy Spirit, it can become a valuable ministry tool. Some seem more gifted than others, but it is hard to get away from the fact that Jesus told His followers to do it. So every Christian should have the basic ability to cast out a demon. Even the disciples got to see Jesus do it and to apprentice with Him for a few years. They got to ask Him questions after their first evangelistic trip when they asked, “Why couldn’t we cast it out?” and they were instructed that there are different kinds of demons and that “this kind comes out by fasting and prayer.” So instruction is helpful along the way. My prayer is that this basic manual will help many of you receive a burden for those in bondage and will go and set the captives free.

In the past there has been some misunderstanding about casting out demons. I have heard of several deaths because of mistreatment when demons were manifesting, such as holding a person down and placing pressure on an artery until a heart attack ensued. Another couple tried to bludgeon a demon out of their son with a cement block and he died of injuries. A grandmother in New York fed her five-year-old granddaughter a lethal mixture of ammonia, vinegar, cayenne pepper, and olive oil because the child’s relatives thought she was full of the devil. She, of course, died. I have these cases documented, but will spare you further details. Casting out demons has gained a bad reputation in some circles because of misunderstanding and abuse.

I believe the most unfortunate reason why people have misgivings about deliverance is that they were prayed over once and “it didn’t work.” People are often far too hasty in casting out a demon without knowing why it is there and dealing with that entry point. They scream at a demon of rejection or lust, but, in an attempt to cure the symptom, they neglect the cause. The person may have temporary relief, but before long, if the entry point has not been healed, the demon returns again and may bring along more demons. The unfortunate problem is that there are too many good-hearted people out there who have never learned how to minister to the whole personality of an individual.

Another misunderstanding arises from the fact that we are dealing with the invisible world and can’t see with our eyes what is going on. It has taken on a “spooky” aura. People don’t like to mess with something they don’t understand well or that they can’t even see. Some of my friends have an unusually keen sense of discernment and can literally see demonic beings. They are usually correct, but I don’t have a strong gift of discernment at all. However, my “gift of deduction” is rather advanced. Once you’ve been in this business for any length of time, things fall into very predictable patterns and I am convinced that a great deal of the ministry of casting out demons can be learned.

Note Doris is also author of the “Deliverance Questionnaire” her [quote] “…methodology is not explained in the questionnaire. I attempt to get to the entry point of what I think is demonic…” before Deliverance ministry can take place the “Releaser” must sign a “VOLUNTARY RELEASE, ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT” which a sample form of the agreement and the questionnaire can be purchased at “The Arsenal Bookstore” at GHM.

The Apostolic Roundtable of Deliverance Ministers (ARDM) is a newly formed group of deliverance ministers. The Roundtable is considering a number of issues regarding deliverance ministry that include validation, a system for referrals, and identifying existing local churches and ministries that provide deliverance. The next meeting of the ARDM is scheduled in September. Members are accepted to the Roundtable by invitation only.

The workload on deliverance ministers in local churches and ministries is overwhelming! Many good ministers that this ministry could recommend have requested not to be listed because they are already backlogged with requests for deliverance ministry. The solution to this problem seems to be to provide more training for existing and future deliverance ministers. Global Harvest Ministries and some excellent co-laborers in the field of deliverance ministry have expanded their seminar and training schedule in an effort to equip more of the church for this life-changing ministry.

There are a number of different styles and methods of deliverance ministry in the body of Christ. Finding a local church or ministry that performs deliverance ministry is not like looking in the "Yellow Pages" under Deliverance. That said a great number of churches with a New Apostolic Reformation paradigm embrace the operation of deliverance ministry. Generally speaking, many local churches prefer to provide deliverance to those within the boundaries of their church or geographic focus. In that way they are able to provide pastoral after-care.

6) Who are the people involved in the Prophetic, Apostolic, and Spiritual Warfare/ Deliverance Ministries? *Note these are the various Prophet/Apostles own descriptions and profiles

C.Peter Wagner Horizontal Apostle
President of the Global Harvest Ministries/The Observatory, and Chancellor of the Wagner Leadership Institute. For about two decades, Peter Wagner has been associated with several global movements of the Holy Spirit. This exciting journey began back in 1982, when he and John Wimber, founder of the Vineyard Christian Fellowship, co-instructed the course “Signs, Wonders and Church Growth” at Fuller Seminary. His outspoken advocacy of praying for the sick, spiritual mapping, identificational repentance, the ministry and role of apostles and prophets in the church today, and demonic deliverance have identified Peter as a pioneer in the arena of spiritual warfare. Perhaps his most significant contribution so far has been his relentless effort to promote strategic and effective prayer. My mentor for helping me make a paradigm shift into what I now call spiritual principles of church growth was John Wimber, founder of the Association of Vineyard Churches and Vineyard Ministries International. This began my second season of research, focusing first of all on the relationship between supernatural signs and wonders and church growth, then on prayer and spiritual warfare. This began in the early 1980s and continued to the mid-1990s. My third season of research is now focusing on the New Apostolic Reformation. What is the Observatory?: The research division of Global Harvest Ministries we act as a repository for spiritual mapping information. Much of our time is spent corresponding with people seeking ways to communicate the spiritual needs of their community. We also manage the resources in the research center, the Global Harvest Ministries website(s), and coordinate research for the Target 40/70 Window initiative. Being a repository, the Observatory has select information received from mappers and intercessors. Occasionally, we receive a request for a global or regional map of demonic, territorial structures. I suppose as we collect mapping information that such a pattern will become apparent, but as far as I am aware no map like that exists. The information we have will be made available online as we are able. “Why should I share my spiritual mapping?” Spiritual mapping reports are similar to intelligence reports. An intelligence report is designed to provide the type of reconnaissance needed to plan an effective strategy for dislodging an enemy from its stronghold. By itself, a report is of nominal value, but used within the context of a Holy Spirit inspired strategy a report is an awesome tool. Consider those that will use your spiritual mapping information as allies with whom you share a common goal.

Bishop/Dr. Bill Hamon Prophet/ Apostle
Founder & President of Christian International Ministries Network/ Accredited CI Ministry Training College founded 1995 Several years ago, the Lord began to speak to me about the end-time prophets, apostles, and saints that He is restoring and releasing in the Body of Christ. I received several prophecies confirming His will for Christian International to train, equip, and activate His end-time, twenty-first century army of five-fold ministers and saints. The end-time army of God is a prophetic/apostolic army that will demonstrate His power and prepare the way for His return.For a look at MSOG teaching see “THE ETERNAL CHURCH” where he states:

    "Each restorational advancement of the Army of the Lord has established denominational forts that are given responsibility to maintain the purity and power of that truth. . . New recruits are now being drafted and trained and older soldiers and generals are being put through intensified training for the next advancement of the Church Army. They are being purified by the Baptism of Fire. . . Are you Ready? Where do you start? What will you do? A new government must be established, a new way of life for those millions of people. You are now ready to rule and reign on your overcomer's throne!"

So, what is ahead? The MANIFESTED SONS OF GOD. Bill Hamon on page 385 of the same book lays it out.
    "The Earth and all of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God, the time when they will come into their maturity and immortalization.... When the Church receives its full inheritance and redemption then creation will be redeemed from its cursed condition of decay, change and death....the Church has a responsibility and ministry to the rest of creation. Earth and its natural creation is anxiously waiting for the Church to reach full maturity and come to full sonship. When the Church realizes its full sonship, its bodily redemption will cause a redemptive chain reaction throughout all of creation." [Paradigm Shift.]

Chuck Pierce Apostle
Glory of Zion International/Vice President Global Harvest Ministries He has served as Executive Director for several non-profit missions organizations and ministries. He presently serves on various national Boards of ministries within our nation, including Aglow International - U.S., Generals of Intercession, and the Global Strategic Prayer Network.

John P. Kelly Apostle

Is one of the founders of International Coalition of Apostles (ICA) and serves Dr. C. Peter Wagner, the presiding apostle, as an ICA ambassador to apostolic networks worldwide.

John P. Kelly is an international ambassadorial apostle with a three-fold calling:

    • To be a voice concerning the apostolic movement
      To be a mentor to emerging apostles
      To give council to apostles in transition

To advance this calling he developed LEAD as a serving ministry to help men and women achieve their apostolic destinies. LEAD is an acronym for Leadership, Education, for Apostolic Development.

Views & Teachings
The purpose of the New Apostolic Reformation is to take dominion, so the glory of God will fill the earth. "By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established" (Proverbs 24:3). The house of the Lord is built by first laying the strong foundation of the five-fold ministry. To accomplish this, it is necessary that the restoration of the apostle, as the fifth part of the five-fold ministry, be released and received by the Church. Then the Church will be able to reach it's full potential as a transforming power on the earth...

Simply put, an apostle is a leader of leaders and a servant to the body of Christ. The apostle is a master builder who is called to:
Unify a region by effectively bringing the five-fold ministries together to form an effective army (Ephesians 4:4). Impart strategy as a general to the Church in a city or region ( Timothy 1:18). Help the Church take authority in every segment of society, including economics, politics, and education (Genesis 1:28, Ephesians 4:11).

The Church will not achieve the fulfillment of its vision if it does not know the steps to take and how to succeed in the mission. The function of LEAD is to equip and strengthen church and marketplace leadership to realize their vision and bring God's glory to their sphere of influence. The Holy Spirit has anointed John P. Kelly as a General Apostle to the End Time Church to helps these goals be accomplished. (excerpted from the LEAD website)

George Otis Jr. Spiritual Warfare
The Sentinel Group was founded in 1990 by well-traveled missions researcher George Otis, Jr. The ministry's early emphasis on restricted or under-serviced frontiers was a natural extension of Otis' earlier work with the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization, an international missions movement launched in the early 1970s by Billy Graham. Throughout the latter half of the 1980s, Otis served as the movement's senior associate for restricted-access peoples, a role that took him into many nations of the 10/40 Window. It was during this period that his interest in prayer and spiritual warfare was honed to a sharp edge. During his travels, Otis noted that certain regions of the world manifested exceptional idolatry and spiritual oppression. The observation led to a salient question: Why does spiritual darkness linger where it does? In search of answers, Otis spent much of the 1990s interviewing a wide variety of subjects in some fifty nations. His conclusions were eventually published in a landmark book entitled, The Twilight Labyrinth. During this same period, reports began to surface or dramatic spiritual breakthroughs in some of the most unlikely places-places that included towns and territories within the 10/40 Window. What particularly interested Sentinel Group researchers was the number of cases in which spiritual revival was followed by rapid improvements in a community's political and social fabric. Something was clearly going on. In 1995, the ministry began to investigate these reports in earnest. Fanning out across four continents, Sentinel researchers were able to document numerous examples of spiritually transformed communities. They were also able to identify the factors responsible for these remarkable changes. In June of 1999, their discoveries were released to the public in a widely acclaimed video documentary called Transformations i.e. "Transformations Video"

Mike Bickel Prophet
International House of Prayer Director of the International House of Prayer of Kansas City, a 24 hour a day city-wide spiritual warfare ministry.

Mike is also Ministry Director of ‘Friends of the Bridegroom’, a ministry dedicated to equipping forerunners in the beauty of God. He is the author of two books, Passion for Jesus & Growing in the Prophetic. Mike’s teaching emphasis is in the area of developing passion for Jesus through the knowledge of the beauty of God.

He has a deep conviction of a victorious end-time church

Paul Cain Prophet
Shiloh Ministries a Prophetic Sanctuary OCTOBER 2000 - Paul Cain and Mike Bickle Announce Enhanced Shiloh Vision Ancient Shiloh was a small town in the time of the Judges where the tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant were located. It was a place where God’s people went to pray and worship before the Lord to seek His face and hear His voice. In the early 1950s, the Lord revealed to Paul Cain in a variety of ways His desire to raise up a generation of “nameless and faceless people” who would be a part of a world-wide end-time revival—ordinary men and women blessed with extraordinary gifts and anointing. In 1997, 93 acres in South Kansas City were purchased to establish a prophetic retreat center that would contribute in some way to the fulfillment of this vision. Alongside this move of God would be the reality of seeing the body of Christ ministering in the fullness of the Holy Spirit and His gifts (Eph. 4:11-13). One result of this will be Christians all over the world discerning the prophetic voice of the Lord so as to be thoroughly equipped to strengthen, encourage, and comfort others. The ministry of Shiloh, through God’s enabling grace, is committed to this goal. Original Board Members of Paul Cain Ministries: Jack Deere, Mike Bickle, Rick Joyner, Paul Cain & John Wimber.

Bob Jones Prophet
Bob Jones Ministries with Keith Davis Bob Jones seems to walk with the Lord both day and night, and the supernatural is an everyday occurrence to Bob. As Bob begins to minister prophetically to an individual the Lord moves through Bob, touching on their past wounds, present circumstances, and future dreams that they may be made whole. “I just tell them what the Lord reveals to me,” Bob said. Bob was born in Gravely, Ark., the son of a sharecropper. One summer day when Bob was nine years old, he was walking down a dust road when an angel appeared to him. The angel told Bob that he had come to announce the calling the Lord had placed on his life. In early 1983, Bob heard about a group of young people who had only recently begun a new church in the south Kansas City area. After visiting them, he knew this was some of the “new breed” the Lord had told him about in the visions in 1976. The Lord brought Bob to Kansas City Fellowship just a few months after its beginning. He was often used supernaturally to confirm the Word of the Lord to the leadership team. Since those days, the Lord has allowed Bob to grow in both gifts and influence. Bob has been released in full-time ministry and today spends a great deal of his time traveling across the country, ministering at many conferences and churches.

The greatest strengths of Bob’s ministry today are in the areas of revelation, power over the enemy and creative miracles.

The Elijah List – Steve Schultz Prophet
Our purpose is to dispense some of the more significant words we encounter of what the Holy Spirit is saying to the church today. We are sent literally hundreds of words for submission to this list, -- and many of them are very good, but perhaps a little more for the personal use of the one hearing. But when we encounter a mature word that we believe to be from the Lord---which seems to be for the entire Body of Christ, and it appears that this word will either Encourage, correct, exhort, edify, (etc) the Lord’s Family, we put that word out to the whole list. It is then up to you, the individual, to discern and/or “judge” the word FOR YOURSELF if its from the Lord.

Roberts Lairdon
Embassy Christian Center The directive of the Holy Spirit to Pastor Liardon is that he raise up a bold new generation of spirit-filled men and women to bring the message of salvation, revival, and reform to the nations. In order for this mandate to be fulfilled, there is a need for a training institute and a strong church base from which these ministers can be launched and supported while in the field. Roberts Liardon Liardon claims he was transported to heaven and there met Jesus face to face and that he and Jesus had a water fight in the River of Life! Liardon further claims he was shown a building filled with unclaimed body parts (hair, eyes, skin, legs, etc.). This heavenly warehouse of unclaimed body parts is overstocked, according to Liardon, simply because here on earth believers have failed to appropriate them by faith

Kathie Walters Prophet
David & Kathie Walters Good News Ministries The miracle power of God, the Angels, heavenly visitations, are supposed to be a normal part of our lives. My book, Living in the Supernatural, will help you to enter into your inheritance in Christ. God wants you to be free from the spirit of religion. It will keep you from God’s best and keep you in measure instead of fullness. Condemnation, fear, false standards, intimidation, unbelief, inferiority etc. are all manifestations of Satan’s attack against your fulfilling the great destiny that is in your life. Everyone of us has a destiny to fulfill and God’s supernatural power and anointing is available to us. My books, tapes, and articles will help you to leave behind the negative imprints of the enemy. Kathie has also written several books referred to as “Celtic Streams” titles are Columba- The Celtic Dove, Celtic Flames, Angels - Watching Over You and Seers List and Health Related Mindsets. After being asked by Bob Jones to pray over Charlotte N.C. Kathy received the following vision from God “ a vision of a wizard- like person in the heavenlies. He had a long pointed hat it was blue with gold moons and stars. His gown was also blue with moons and stars all over it and he was running around laughing. He then leaned over trying to touch the ministry. I sensed it was not some little demon playing games, but a real stronghold, even though he looked old-fashioned, almost comical and was laughing. The Holy Spirit said "Merlin."…” The Holy Spirit showed me that the spirit of MORGAN LE FAY was also positioned above Charlotte with Merlin.
