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.

Ahava and shalom,

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.

Love For His People - moving forward in our 9th year with you. For them.


July 11, 2018

Charlotte, North Carolina
USA


Dear friends of Love For His People,

Just over a year ago - Saturday, July 1, 2017 - was a very special day for me.

Seven years ago on June 30, 2010, I had left the third ministry I had worked for in the past 24 years (this one was Vision for Israel with Barry and Batya Segal, after 14 years at Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda Ministries/All Nations Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, and eight years total at Derek Prince Ministries (Ft. Lauderdale and Charlotte), finishing with the last five at VFI. (Some years I split the 40 hour work week between two of them if you are a numbers person counting the years.)

The complete reason in departing my service at VFI was to start a new ministry, co-founded by my good wife Laurie and I. We called it Love For His People (officially formed in April 2010 with our USA non-profit, 501(c)3 approval) - primarily to bless the Jews of Israel, and specifically the believers, those who have come to acknowledge that Yeshua is the Messiah, HaMashiach.

As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the organization/ministry to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel, Yisrael - the Land of Israel - in this world of nations that continually becomes more anti-Semitic daily. We have been called, as the prophetic word in 2002 was spoken, as a "scepter for Israel."

  
 With both Laurie and I saved and called to be man and woman in the Lord Jesus Christ, our heart's desire is to do our part in speaking up for those who, for centuries, experienced nothing more than "hate" in the "name of Christ", from so-called Christians. That included Adolf Hitler himself, who used Martin Luther's last completely inerrant days, of non-Scriptural theology, to espouse Replacement Theology. This totally wrong belief that the "church" had replaced Israel as the one receiving the promises of the God of Israel. Today, it continues to be totally inaccurate, both historically and spiritually.

Thus, with these seven years now completed since the start of Love For His People (seven being "completion" in the Lord's number listing), it is similar to the seven ones that King Solomon took to complete the first Jewish Temple on the Mount (in Jerusalem, ISRAEL) centuries ago. As it states in the Torah, "he was seven years in building it." (1 Kings 6:38).

As a side note, this fact alone is proof enough that ALL of Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. The Jews had been given, and on many occasions even bought, the land of Israel they have now returned too.

We now begin our 9th year with the ministry of Love For His People, Inc

Israel, of course, continues to be the main objective in our support, but we also will be standing with those others who join alongside us in helping Jews make aliyah (return to Israel), speak out for the nation, and appreciate their Jewish roots as believers in Jesus (Yeshua).


We ask you to join us in our continuing efforts.

This ministry, with no staff or paid contractors, sends monthly funds to families in Jerusalem. For some of these, it has been for over seven years now. Consistently. Each month.

Our daily blog Love For His People also features my messages Now Think On This, which then are posted to our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. These messages are then printed into books (15 as of this date) on various encouraging and uplifting subjects.
Our Love For His People blog regularly shares Messianic news posted by Israel Today, with Aviel Schneider, Russ Jones, and team. Other news and prophetic ministry outlets, CharismaNews, CBN News Jerusalem, Breaking Israel News, Israel365, The Elijah List, are reposted to give you the truth, current events and relevant articles to help you grow in spirit, soul, and body.

Israel Today Editor - Aviel Schneider (Jerusalem, May 2013)

Our YouTube channel (Steve Martin) has over 1100 videos (several dozens recorded by myself in Israel over 16 trips) with over 940 subscribers; Twitter accounts, including (Steve Martin@Martinlighthous) have tweets that have gone out more than 55K at this point in time.
