Get Free: Your Guide to the Deliverance Process

If you’ve been looking for a deliverance ministry in Minnesota, you’re most likely confused about the deliverance process.

Different deliverance ministers have their own methods of casting out demons.

Some deliverance ministers don’t allow demons to manifest and provide their names.

Others yell at them at the top of their lungs, hoping to scare demons out.

But how do you know who casts out demons the right way?

The short answer is, by doing it the way Jesus did.

When people seek deliverance, they need clarity about how the deliverance process works.

In this comprehensive guide, I’ll take you by the hand and help you get ready for deliverance and exorcism.

I’ll bust some myths about deliverance that are circulating among confused people.

I’ll also describe the deliverance and exorcism protocol I learned from legendary Bob Larson.

Let’s dive in.

Deliverance vs. Exorcism

Deliverance is a process, not a one-time event, and it takes time for a person to get free.

Exorcism is an act of exorcising (expelling) demons out of a person. It’s part of the deliverance process.

One person can have several exorcisms in the deliverance process.

If you read Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua, you will see the deliverance process for the Israelites.

First, they saw a need for deliverance and cried out to God.

In response, God sent Moses as a leader to deliver them out of Egypt.

After Moses, God appointed Joshua to conquer Canaan, the land God had promised to Abraham and his descendants.

The conquest of Canaan took years.

By the same token, reclaiming your soul and all areas of your life may take time.

So, when you’re undergoing deliverance, be patient.

Navigating the Steps of the Deliverance Process

The journey through deliverance comprises a series of steps that require courage, patience, and faith.

After reading this post, you’ll have a clear picture of the pathway from bondage to freedom.

Understanding what each step involves will help you prepare mentally and spiritually, setting expectations for the journey ahead.

It’s like preparing for a long hike; knowing the map helps manage your energy and resources effectively.

1. Recognizing the Need for Deliverance

need for deliverance

The first step in any problem-solving process is acknowledging there is a problem.

In spiritual warfare, this means recognizing the signs of demonic influence.

They include patterns of negative thinking, inexplicable outbursts of anger, or a persistent sense of heaviness, among others.

These symptoms might often be mistaken for psychological issues.

It begs the question: are we dealing with a mental health issue or something beyond?

Discerning the true source requires wisdom and spiritual insight, setting the stage for effective deliverance.

My article 30 Sure Signs of Demonic Oppression and Need for Deliverance will help you diagnose yourself for the presence of demons.

But there is more.

Before you come to me for exorcism, you will need to fill out the deliverance request form. It will help me better understand your issues and target the right demons if you have any.

2. Embracing Honesty and Sincerity in the Deliverance Process

Deliverance thrives on the bedrock of honesty and sincerity.

Without these, the process can quickly come to a screeching halt.


Because demons like secrecy, darkness, and gray areas where they can hide.

But they hate the light of Christ that exposes them through your honest attitude.

When you hide the ugliest facets of your life from me as an exorcist, you’re playing for the devil.

But if you’re honest by calling sin by its name, the demons lose their power. Your honesty exposes their dark works, and we dismantle their kingdom together.

Sincerity is about genuinely desiring freedom, not just going through the motions.

Consider a patient who fully discloses their symptoms to their doctor; this openness allows for an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Similarly, honesty and sincerity in deliverance lay the groundwork for your true healing and freedom.

3. Trusting in God, Not the Exorcist, in the Deliverance Process

Trust is the currency of any productive and mutually beneficial relationship.

But when you come to me seeking deliverance, I want you to put your trust in God, not in me.

The Bible says:

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord“ (Jeremiah 17:5).

I don’t want you to self-inflict a curse of trusting in me rather than in God.

I’m a mere human who does what Jesus did.

I cast out demons in Jesus’ name, not in my name. So, your trust must be in Jesus who makes demons flee by the power of the Holy Spirit.

After an exorcism, I always ask the person, “Who did it for you?”

The only right answer they can give me is, “Jesus.“

4. The Role of Repentance in the Deliverance Process

Repentance is the first practical step in the deliverance process.

The Greek word for repentance is “metanoia,” which implies a change in the mindset. It’s a U-turn you make away from a sinful life to a life of freedom through Christ.

Repentance is not about saying a sinner’s prayer.

It’s your first genuine encounter with God.

This step is essential because sin provides a foothold for demonic influences.

By repenting, you remove these legal rights.

Whatever claims demons have in your life, their claims get annulled by Jesus’ blood.

But the greatest effect of repentance is your spiritual birth and the revival of your spirit by God.

In the letter to the church of Ephesus, the Apostle Paul wrote,

“You were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience… But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ“ (Ephesians 2:1, 4-5).

In summary, repentance reconnects you with God by reviving your spirit and makes you His child. You turn away from sin to a life cleansed by Jesus’ blood, with all your sins forgiven.

5. Forgiveness: A Transformative Step in the Deliverance Process

Now that you’ve experienced God’s forgiveness, it’s your turn to forgive those who wronged you.

It’s often very difficult.

But this step is essential in your journey toward freedom.

For demons, unforgiveness is a way to stay inside you.

Here’s how it works.

People whom you can’t forgive are hostages you hold and torture in the prison of your soul. In your thoughts, you beat them, yell at them, choke them, etc.

This cultivation of negativity toward them also backfires at you.

Demons use your resentment and bitterness against you like chains and shackles to hold you hostage.

Open the doors of your prison cells and release all your captives by forgiving them.

Because if you don’t, demons will stay and continue harming you.

You must do it for your personal freedom.

6. Breaking Curses: Removing Legal Rights from Demons

A curse is any form of destruction of any area of your life. It can be inherited or acquired during your lifetime from various sources.

If sins and transgressions are open doors through which demons enter, curses are legal rights permitting them to stay.

Do demons need legal rights to stay in your body?

Not at all.

Like trespassers, thieves and robbers never ask a permission to commit their crimes, neither do demons.

But curses strengthen their position within a host (a person they occupy).

It’s crucial to understand that curses will stay in effect until you break them.

Breaking curses is like reclaiming your ownership rights to anything demons stole from you.

That includes your soul (mind, emotions, and will) and every area of your life demons polluted by their presence.

When we break curses, we also cancel demons’ rights to stay within you.

Before you break curses, we need to discover them by their symptomatic presence in your life. The deliverance request form plays a crucial role in that process.

How do we break curses?

We break curses by declaring them canceled by Jesus’ blood.

As Jesus ransomed believers by shedding His blood (1 Peter 1:18-19), we reclaim everything from the devil through His blood.

7. Prayer and Fasting: Spiritual Power in the Deliverance Process

Prayer and fasting are humbling experiences that help us take the right stance before God.

First, prayer and fasting remind us we fully depend on God in the deliverance process.

I mean, both you as a person seeking deliverance, and me as an exorcist.

Second, prayer and fasting help us submit ourselves to God and resist the devil (James 4:7).

Prayer and fasting are also necessary when dealing with stubborn demons.

Jesus said,

This kind of demon does not go out except by prayer and fasting.

(Matt. 17:21 AMP)

God provided the requirements for fasting that He accepts in Isaiah 58:3-14.

Here they are in a nutshell:

  • Loosen the bonds of wickedness [release people from unjustly binding contracts or agreements];
  • Undo the straps of the yoke [remove heavy burdens from the ones you burdened];
  • Share your bread with the hungry [feed those you withheld your food from];
  • Bring the homeless poor into your house [provide shelter to those in need];
  • Cover the naked [clothe those who are naked];
  • Etc.

So, fasting goes beyond abstaining from food and drink.

Fasting is about pursuing justice and taking steps to eliminate it if you acted unjustly or unfairly toward others.

By doing so, you will remove any legal basis for demons to remain in you.

8. Exorcism: A Focused Approach Within the Deliverance Process

Finally, exorcism represents a focused, intense confrontation with demons.

During the exorcism, I directly address the demons involved, commanding them in the name of Jesus Christ to leave.

It’s a spiritual battle, fought not with physical weapons but with the authority delegated to us by Jesus (Luke 10:19).

At this stage, I bind demons with an oath by making the chief spirit repeat after me something along these lines:

I, [e.g., Beelzebub], lift every curse off [e.g., Jessica] and all her future generations. I renounce all my claims and rights to precious [Jessica], her destiny, calling, health, and life. I bind to me [names of each demon discovered] and all other demons under my authority. [Here, I declare that I, the exorcist, bind all the named and unnamed demons to the chief demon with the three-fold cord from Ecclesiastes 4:12]. With all my kingdom, we receive God’s judgment, and as one, we go now to the pit.

After the chief demon says this oath, I tell him to go.

It may take some patience because demons often are reluctant to leave and don’t leave as quickly as they entered the person.

It’s crucial to be persistent and firm when demanding demons to leave.

They must know it’s a demand, not a suggestion or an option.

Once demons are gone, the person feels relief and lightness right away.

Busting the Myths about the Deliverance Process and Exorcism

Some people who contact me often believe the myths about the deliverance process and exorcism.

Here, I bust some of the most common ones.

Myth 1. You Should Not Talk with Demons

I agree.

The Bible doesn’t allow us talking with demons.

Instead, we can interrogate them.

Jesus interrogated demons (Mark 5:9, Luke 8:30).

Interrogation of demons is a necessary part of deliverance. Before you can cast out a demon, you at least need to know the chief demon’s name.

Demons hate answering questions, exposing their wicked deeds and hierarchy. But if you keep pressuring them, they must answer.

I usually ask demons about their names, their legal rights, how many generations ago they entered the host’s bloodline, etc.

Making demons reveal this information is crucial for the dismantlement of their kingdom within the host to cast them out.

Myth 2. It’s a Sin to Talk to Jezebel

When we deal with the Jezebel spirit, some people don’t quite understand what’s going on. They think I call out and speak with the spirit of the queen Jezebel and thus commit a sin of necromancy.

Queen Jezebel reigned in Israel during the time of the prophet Elijah. She was a wicked human being.

But there’s also a demon named Jezebel who carries out similar functions of the queen Jezebel: seduction, deception, manipulation, control, destruction of ministry, sexual perversion, etc.

In the New Testament, the spirit of Jezebel appears in Revelation 2:20.

It’s one of the most widespread demons in this day and age.

So, when I interrogate the demon named Jezebel, I do not speak to the deceased queen Jezebel.

I believe this is a deception of the Jezebel spirit that makes you think I commit a sin of necromancy. Remember, one of Jezebel’s task is to attack the character and ministry of the exorcist.

This spirit does that to remain within the host as long as possible.

Myth 3. Jesus Simply Commanded Demons to Leave without Talking to Them

This myth arose out of biblical illiteracy among Christians.

If you carefully study each episode of how Jesus dealt with demons, you’ll see that he interrogated them, commanded them to be quiet, and cast them out.

Here are some narratives about Jesus’ interaction with demons:

  • Matthew 8:28-34
  • Matthew 17:14-20
  • Mark 1:21-28
  • Mark 9:14-29
  • Luke 13:10-17

Myth 4. When Jesus Cast Out Demons, They Left Right Away

Luke 8:29-30 busts this myth.

First, Jesus commanded the demon to leave.

When the demon didn’t, Jesus asked his name.

We see in this passage that demons did not always obey Jesus immediately.

The story about the demon named Legion reveals much more that lies on the surface. But this is beyond the scope of this post.

Myth 5. Jesus Didn’t Interview Anyone before Casting Out Demons

Again, this myth was born by Christians’ ignorance about the Word of God.

In the story about a demonized boy in Mark 9:14-29, Jesus interviews the boy’s parents about his demonization background.

In the last 2,000 years, demons have learned how to hide and complicate their wicked plots against humans.

Because of migration, inter-racial and inter-ethnical marriages, as an exorcist, I have to deal with complexities of demonization rooted in various geographic locations.

It means that I have to deal with demons originating from different cultures and continents.

Therefore, interviewing a person about his/her ethnic and racial background gives me a clearer picture of what potential demons are hiding in his/her bloodline.

Myth 6. Casting Out Demons Must Be Quick

People who created this myth most likely never cast out demons.

They read biblical accounts of casting out demons and conclude that exorcism must take no longer than 5 minutes.

The harsh reality of dealing with demons proves this myth wrong.

Depending on the severity of one’s demonization, some exorcisms can be quick, while others may take a long time.

In my experience, former witches and warlocks take the longest to set them free.


Because some of those witches and warlocks have generational demons who have stayed in their bloodlines for thousands of years.

Plus, such people have an extraordinary number of demons and generational curses to get rid of.

My first ever case of casting out demons was a former witch. It took us about a year to set her completely free.

But an ordinary demonization case may take more than one exorcism.

Myth 7. Demons Don’t Leave Immediately Because the Exorcist Lacks Anointing

Sometimes, I help people who come to me from someone else who hasn’t been able to cast out their demons. I usually ask them about the exorcism protocol they went through.

Most times, I don’t doubt those exorcists’ anointing.

I understand that some of them lack knowledge, others lack experience.

Jesus said in Mark 16:17:

And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons…

Note, He didn’t say these signs will accompany those who have a special anointing.

Anointing is important.

But you can’t blame an exorcist for demons’ stubbornness. As I mentioned above, some people require more exorcisms to get free.

And this is not because an exorcist lacks anointing.

There are many other reasons.

Moving Forward

If you’ve reached so far, I hope I’ve been able to make it clearer for you how the deliverance process and exorcism work.

This is a universal approach to casting out demons that works for people from every ethnicity, language, and culture.

In summary, an individual seeking deliverance needs:

  1. To realize his/her need for deliverance;
  2. Be honest and sincere;
  3. To trust in God, not the exorcist;
  4. To repent;
  5. To forgive everybody;
  6. To break curses;
  7. To pray and fast;
  8. To undergo an exorcism.

If you or your loved ones need to get rid of demons, contact our ministry.

You won’t be afraid anymore, not knowing what to expect.

The process I described above is exactly how I do it.

Demons can vary from person to person, but the core protocol for casting them out remains the same because it works.
