Deliverance From Evil - Now Think On This by Steve Martin



Deliverance From Evil

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.” 1 Timothy 4:1-3 (NASB)


When the young girl rose up violently from the floor, rapidly pulled up by something, from laying flat on her back, and spoke in a loud, man’s gruff voice, “I am not leaving her. I have been here too long” - my opinion of whether demons existed or not needed no further proof of their reality.

And a decade before that, in 1973 when I was still a young adult and open to all that would try to convince me of the other side in the supernatural realm, I saw the movie The Exorcist with actress Linda Blair, in my high school senior year. That was indeed demonic, and no one can convince me otherwise.

With the passing of these last 45 years since then, when most of America yet seemed to follow God, the increase of demonic activity, revealing itself through witchcraft, anti-Semitism, racism and white supremacy (to name a few, all in the same classification) should be enough to convince anyone who walks and talks that the work of demons and their leadership from the underworld has vastly increased in people’s lives.

Even Walt Disney Pictures has very subtlety pushed their spiritual agenda on our kids, in the guise of fun, wholesomeness, tolerance, and acceptance, when all along it is simply witchcraft too.

The Bible teachers and deliverance ministers I sat under for clear Scriptural truth, during my early Christian years, laying a great foundation in my spiritual life, included Derek Prince (his classic book They Shall Expel Demons is a must-read), Don Basham (his book Deliver Us From Evil also a classic), and Mahesh Chavda (read Only Love Can Make A Miracle). They taught, straight from the Word of God, that demons, deliverance, and spiritual warfare was very real, and as believers, we need to know how to combat and overcome the forces opposed to our very existence, and that of our families and friends.

There are far too many Christians, and of course non-believers, who would like to dismiss the work of the enemy as non-existent; choosing instead to allocate everything affecting us as either a physical, mental, or ancestral problem. Hence, they will use natural means to try and overcome a spiritual problem.

Is everything bad thing caused by demonic activity? No, of course not. Most of our situations are caused by sin in our own lives that we bring on ourselves, through disobedience to God’s Word. Drunkenness, alcoholism, sexual perversity, homosexuality, and pornography are not caused by a disease, but most often are results of sin and generational curses brought down through sin of our forefathers. But there is certainly demonic activity that requires deliverance, and which will not “be cured” except by this supernatural action. Generational curses can be broken. Watch Dr. Peter Wyns: Blessings or Curses or get the book (Blessings or Curses - book.) 

As darkness increases exponentially during these times and as the satanic force sees his time drawing to an end, especially since the rebirth of Israel in 1948, we must know, practice, and confront head-on the deceit, lies, and the deception that abounds. Deliverance can bring freedom.

The Holy Spirit will open our eyes if we ask. So, we must ask.

Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store for you and those around you.

P.S. I very thankful to the Lord Jesus, and blessed to note that this is the 450th Now Think On This message I have written. 

When I started out writing in the fall of 2010, after a return trip from Israel and asked the Lord, “Now what?” as we started Love For His People ministry that spring, He replied, “Write love letters.”

And so beginning with the first ones, known then as Ahava Love Letters (see a few of those here in my book of the same name: Book - Ahava Love Letters by Steve Martin 2013, the Holy Spirit has given me inspiration to share His heart.

Power of Your Love - Now Think On This by Steve Martin


Power of Your Love


“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-29, NASU


Ever suddenly you hear a song that you haven’t heard in a long time, and immediately you are “back there”, reliving those great moments when it touched you?

When I again encountered this worship song on my playlist this morning, with Darlene Zschech of Hillsongs (1995) singing once again The Power of Your Love, my spirit soared. Yes! What a powerful song! 

Back then. Even now.

Immediately I experienced the love of the Lord, knowing He is near, He is in control, He is moving among the nations through His Holy Spirit, spreading what He alone does so well, the power of His love. In and through us, those who walk in His ways, who know and experience His leading through His word and His might, in the knowledge of His love. We have known, and continue to know, the power of His love.

Read these lyrics written by Geoff Bullock. Then listen to them as Darlene so powerfully sings them.

Consider what He has does in your life, once again. Let the love of the Lord be renewed in your heart today, as His will is unfolded in through you and His love surrounds you, to share with others.

Darlene Zschech - recorded live at Rhema Family Church Auditorium, Perth, Australia, 1995. with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

The Power of Your Love

Lord I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I've found in You

Lord I've come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love

Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side

And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love

Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As You live in me

Lord renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
By the power of Your love

Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side

And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love

(Listen repeatedly The Power of Your Love,  )

Be blessed today, knowing that the love of God never ceases, never changes, never will let you down as you keep your eyes fixed on Him, the Author, and Finisher of our faith.

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2, NKJV

Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store for you and those around you.

"If I Be Lifted Up" - Now Think On This by Steve Martin


“If I Be Lifted Up”


“And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself." John 12:32, NASU


Speaking of His soon approaching death on the wooden cross, Jesus (Yeshua) told His disciples that when He was lifted up, this would be the main catalyst that would then draw all men to Himself.

When Jesus was lifted up, He drew all people to Himself.

In a recent Sunday worship time, before the speaker came to the podium, the beautiful song being sung wonderfully proclaimed Jesus. As the congregation focused in on praising His Name, I could really sense the move of the Holy Spirit drawing those focused on Jesus, and bringing them into a greater realm of the spirit. Jesus was being lifted up in our midst. He was drawing the people even closer to Him.

We weren’t focused on our needs. We weren’t singing, “Bless me. Bless mine.” Or, “Woe is me. Help me. Take care of me.”

We were singing Jesus.

Over 7 years ago now I led a worship team at a local Highway to Zion assembly here in Charlotte, North Carolina, headed by founder Cathy Hargett. We sang several Messianic songs, written by Messianic Jews, and a few written by popular Christian worship leaders. Present in the meeting was a Messianic Jewish leader from Israel, one very prominent in the movement taking place among believers in the Land of His people.

After the time set for all on the schedule had been concluded, he came up to me afterward and said, “I never heard the name of Yeshua in all of the songs sung during the singing and worship time.”

I was startled and immediately said, “We sang all songs written by a Messianic Jew!”

His reply was, “You never mentioned the Name, Yeshua.”

A bit offended, for days, I dismissed it as, “Who is he to come here to America and tell us what we should sing, when we are singing Messianic songs, written by Messianic believers.” Others who had been there agreed, and yet the Lord wouldn’t let it go in my thoughts and spirit.

Again, during this recent time of Christian worship in the Sunday gathering, when Jesus’ Name was lifted up, the Holy Spirit began moving among the people. Hearts and souls were being centered on Jesus, not on themselves.

In many Christian circles these days, with a lot of the songs played on the radio, sung in our churches, or used among small and large gatherings, a self-centered theme is very prominent.

Even in the sermons and messages being delivered from the pulpit, it is a lot of the “me” stuff.

What can Jesus do for me today? What needs will be met if I seek Him to have them fulfilled? When will my hurt and pain and suffering endured daily as I drink my Starbucks and drive my new car to the high-paying job be over with?

I write this in a somewhat demeaning way, but isn’t it often how we think? It is “Me, me, me. It is all about me.”

When Yeshua (Jesus) is lifted up in our lives, when it is Him Whom we are focused on, for Who He is, high and lifted up in the heavens, and not on ourselves, things will change. When He is praised, when He is worshiped, when we vocally and prominently declare His supernatural actions and reflect on the results of overflowing His love and grace for the nations, then we will be amazed at how He will move among us.


“If I be lifted up” Jesus said, He promised to draw all men and women unto Him. Not only did He then on the cross, but He will now among us this day.

That will be amazing when we finally do.

Lift up Jesus. Glorify His Name. Forget about yourself for a moment and think, thank Him.

Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store for you and those around you.

"God is Setting Thousands Free from the Witchcraft of Pornography"
Andrew Whalen, Colorado Springs, CO


On a very recent, 15-hour road trip, I was suddenly 'seeing' a vision of hundreds of thousands of people being 'caught up' in the sky. Overlaid upon all of these people was a massive judge's gavel. The encounter was so vivid that for hours, as I drove, every time I looked at the sky I immediately saw the same vision of thousands ascending to the air. My first question was, "God, are you showing me the rapture?" As quickly as I asked, the Lord responded and said, "These are lives being set free from the witchcraft of pornography."

A Sevenfold Recompense

The Lord continued and said, "I am rendering verdicts of repayment." When I heard the Lord say this, instantly I knew that the 'spiritual identity theft' that has plagued this generation as a result of pornography was being dealt with. I was suddenly reminded of a powerful dream I had. In my dream I was brought before the courts of Heaven by an accuser. The accuser had a very large and condemning list of 'crimes' I was guilty for. In my dream I realized that the accusations against me were somehow true and I wept before the court, admitting my guilt. One thing I realized is that in Heaven, sins are magnified. I was being charged with murder, adultery and more, for things such as lust, gossip and hatred. It is exactly as Jesus said in the sermon on the mount (Matthew 5). Lust is seen as adultery, hatred as murder, and so on.

In my dream, as I stood before the judge weeping and acknowledging my guilt, suddenly my Advocate rose to my defense. He said, "It is true what this accuser has said about Andrew; he is guilty. However, when Andrew was committing these 'crimes,' his accuser had put him under witchcraft." With intense anger, the Judge rose to His feet, pointed at my accuser, and said, "Because you put him under witchcraft you will be held guilty for his crimes, and must repay sevenfold what you stole" (Proverbs 6:31).

When the Lord had brought this dream to mind, I knew that God was reminding me of His heart for people put in prisons of bondage through the witchcraft of pornography.

It's not that God was removing our responsibility for sin, but He was emphasizing His great desire to show us mercy and judge our real enemy, because of the victory of Jesus Christ.

Identities, Dreams, Relationships and Destinies Are Being Restored!

This generation has been plagued by pornography. It has left a generation in a staggering state of confusion. It has taunted and imprisoned many, even in the Body of Christ. The usual 'mantra' coming from the Church in dealing with this issue is demanding repentance. As one who has personally dealt with this sin, often in the past my 'repentance' was separate from a real understanding of my identity in Christ. The fruit of that 'disconnected repentance' left me feeling ashamed, condemned and powerless.

True repentance is a change of mind that happens as a result of real revelation.

I believe the gavel has dropped against the 'spiritual web' of pornography. Our righteous Judge has rendered a verdict, and the thief is making sevenfold repayment of stolen revelation. Right now identities, dreams, relationships and destinies that have been stolen through the witchcraft of pornography are being restored. Many in this generation are about to receive a fresh revelation of who they are in Christ. Many new salvations are coming and these souls will come in the Kingdom with an unshakable revelation of their new identity in Christ.

Though the thief has come to steal, kill, and destroy, Jesus has come to give life, and life to the fullest (John 10:10)!

I see a massive jailbreak coming from prisons of sexual perversion and addiction. Those who have felt and believed they could never get free of these addictions will suddenly lose all desire for them as they recover the Father's heart and their righteous identity in Jesus Christ.

I prophesy that a Biblical understanding of identity and righteousness in Christ is being released across this nation. I prophesy that hundreds of thousands are being set free from the witchcraft of pornography. I believe it will be said of hundreds of thousands in the days ahead, "That is what some of you were! But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah and by the Spirit of our God" (1 Corinthians 6:11).

For several years the Lord has been showing me how He is raising up radical Holy Spirit filled believers to bring an outpouring of His Glory to this nation. The past few weeks I have been seeing this coming to pass. There are thousands of millennials who are radical for Jesus, know Him as God, and are pressing in to do great exploits. 

This remnant is being groomed for a mighty revival. They are ready to be used by God to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the leaper and set the captives free. They know how to fight the lions, the bears and behead the giants. They learned through personal experience that big battles require strong warriors. They refuse to stay in neutral gear.

King David was known for slaying Goliath whom the Israelites feared but were not able to defeat. David had already killed a lion and a bear before he killed Goliath. He had been through many personal battles but he always came out victorious. He was a king and a leader as well as a poet and a musician. He was a warrior and as we see in the psalms, a man after Gods own heart. He was determined and relentless against the enemy's plots and will never retreated when faced with a challenge.

There was a time when David was running from Saul, and the Lord sent him to the cave of Adullam. There were four hundred men in this cave who were in distress, in debt and discontented. David taught them how to be invincible warriors, raised them up and trained them as a mighty army. In 1 Samuel chapter 30 when David and his men returned home from war, they reached Ziklag and found it destroyed by fire and their wives, sons and daughters were taken captive by the Amalekites. 

David and his men wept aloud until they had no strength left to weep. They reached the breaking point and the people even turned against David wanting to stone him. But then something rose up in David. He strengthened himself in the Lord, and he asked the Lord; "Shall I pursue this troop? Will I overtake them?" The Lord responded: "Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.

The Lord says, "I have called you and chosen from a young age. You have slayed the lion and the bear and beheaded the giants. I will continue to train your hands for war, your fingers for battle and you will become victorious over every assault that rises against you. You have worshiped Me in times of distress, yet you have not backed down in the face of adversity. 

Although the battle has been fierce at times and there are things seem to be destroyed and lost forever, you will recover all that has been plundered from the enemy. As you continue to encourage yourself in Me, you will regain your spiritual momentum.

Stand Steadfast

When calamity comes in as an ambush, stand steadfast in the armor that I have provided for you. Continue to resist all discouragement and stand immovable knowing that I have given you the ability and the authority to overcome every assault that is raised up against you. Do not deviate from the truth but stand steadfast to your convictions. Stand on the promises that are available to you. Do not allow the enemy to intimidate you and don't be moved by his ineffectual strategies. Rise up as men and women of faith and take the position as the warrior that I have created you to be.

Do not allow fear or bitterness to take root and refuse to be moved by situations in the natural. Take every thought captive and trust Me for your provision. I will not fail you or lead you astray but you shall surely pursue, overtake and without fail recover all that has been lost or stolen says the Lord."

1 Samuel 30:6 Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

1 Samuel 30:8-10 So David inquired of the Lord, saying, "Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?" And He answered him, "Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all." So David went, he and the six hundred men who were with him, and came to the Brook Besor, where those stayed who were left behind. But David pursued, he and four hundred men; for two hundred stayed behind, who were so weary that they could not cross the Brook Besor.

1 Samuel 30:18-20 David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. And nothing of theirs was lacking either small or great, sons or daughters, spoils or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all. Then David took all the flocks and herds they had driven before those other livestock, and said, "This is David's spoil."
