Deliverance and Healing

Coming out of my last post on supernatural stories was a question (keep ’em comin’, Arch!)…

So, how does a deliverance differ from a healing?

As I see it, a healing is where God supernaturally restores the physical body, whereas a deliverance is the restoration of the soul (or inner man.) To me, they are basically the same – in fact, a lot of physical ailments have spiritual demonic roots!

While in Tampa, I was taught in the advanced school of deliverance course that there are a lot of devilish spirits that attack us physically, and some healing cannot be just taken, but must be wrestled from the clutches of the demonic. In a later post (only because I don’t have my notes with me!) I will delve into this topic a little deeper.

Sorry for not posting recently – I’ve been extremely busy … and when I have sat to post… it’s like a giant caterpilllar comes by and eats all my ideas before they get a chance to be put onto the screen! That’s the reason for this uncharacteristically short post, too…. pray for me that the Lord helps me get rest and that he inspires me with what he wants for this blog!

  1. It seems to me, before sin. Adam and Eve likely had perfected bodies. No sin, therefore no illness. After sin, when Adam had his first sore throat he was probably having his eyes opened to what he had really bought in to. Sin stinks and we suffer because of it.

    Originally, man lived hundreds of years. Sin did not have time to set deep roots in the physical body. As generations went by, man lived fewer and fewer years. Sin is captivating the body with all types of disease. We now live less than 100 years. I suppose if God were not to step in and make a difference, future man would have incredibly short lives. Maybe?

    I think in healing, God recognizes we have inherited incredibly weak bodies and periodically He authenticates His presence by healing. We are the recepient of the healing but not the purpose of the healing. The purpose of the healing is for others to be drawn to God.

    As I am writing and thinking… I suppose the difference between healing and deliverance is: In healing, God steps in and fixes what is wrong as a result of generations of sin, but not necessarily sin of the person being healed. Deliverance is when there is one or more active demonic influences impinging on the person, thus creating realtime illness (not as likely to be historic in nature). Deliverance occurs when God runs off the evil influences.

    So forgive me. I broke the rule of blogging that says to never comment longer than the post. But to my defense, this will give the bajanpoet many points to correct me on. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Always enjoy your stuff. God bless.

      Oh there’s a rule?????????? Nobody told me! ๐Ÿ˜†

      Well Arch, I don’t find anything to “correct” … in fact, I think you hit the nail on the head:

      SO I think I can move on to another topic! ๐Ÿ˜† Well, I’ll still pull my notes and give examples of sinful attitudes and behaviours that leave the door open for demonic attack that causes sickness, but you definitely hit it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Send me details or formate on how to assist sick persons to get healed or delivered. Please assist me.
