Gen 3:1-7 The serpent
Gen 3:5 It is logically impossible to become ‘like God’. He is not created! We'll never become 'not created'. But the same lie is still offered.

Prov 28:1 The righteous are bold as a lion. (not the unrighteous)

Jer 6:14 Describes our society’s superficial views of healing, missing the spiritual
Dan 10:13-20 Michael, an archangel (a chief prince of heaven) joined the fight against the (evil) prince of Persia to help an angel get to Daniel. The fight started when Daniel began fasting and praying 21 days earlier, humbling himself, praying for understanding. The same angel would then leave and continue the fight left with Michael against the prince of Persia before moving to a fight against the (evil) prince of Greece. We see here battles in the heavenlies that heavenly angels participate in for our sake. They can be long and difficult, requiring the cooperation of angels in the battle…warring angels are a big part of the picture in the spiritual universe.
Hosea 4:12; 5:4 Spirit of prostitution/whoredom/idols/harlotry
Obadiah 17 Deliverance > holiness > possessions
Zech 13:2 Unclean spirit or “spirit of impurity”
Mt 4:1-11 Jesus answered…. “It is written…” Also he says, we must LIVE (all inclusive) by every word (Rhema) that comes from the mouth of God. (In sync with Him/His Universe) Think, speak and act the word of God like Prince says.
Mt 5:28 Looking lustfully is committing adultery
Mt 6:12-15 Which leaves us without forgiveness from the Father.
Mt 6:16 When you fast, (not if you fast) there is no further reward if you fast for the audience of men…that’s the only reward you get. When done properly, fasting DOES have plenty other rewards.
Mt 8:16 Jesus cast out demons with a word and healed all who were sick
Mt 8:28-32 In country of the Gadarenes. Jesus casts out demons into pigs which then run off a cliff
Mt 9:32-33 Healing of sickness caused by demons
Mt 9:36 Normal crowds of people harassed (by demons). Jesus notices what others who are spiritually blind don’t.
*Mt 10:1, 7-8 Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to cast out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness. 7 And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.
Mt 10:36 A man’s foes will be those of his own household...severe such control if necessary.
Mt 11:12 The kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing/coming violently. It’s war. May thy Kingdom come and thy will be done here on earth as it is in heaven. (For God’s Kingdom to do that, there must be great clashes first, like over Persia when Daniel prayed.)
Mt 12:22 Healing of sickness caused by demons
Mt 12:26-27 Clearly Satan is the supreme ruler of his kingdom
Mt 12:28 If I cast out demons…surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. Jesus (we) cast out spirits by the Spirit of God…we are DEPENDENT on Him.
Mt 12:29 First bind the ‘strong man’ who is usually the leader who controls and dominates the rest. During deliverance he is usually the one to manifest itself. See also chapter 18:18
Mt 12:36-37 Idle words
Mt 12:43-45 An expelled demon goes to arid places and then returns to its house swept and EMPTY. Swept is good. Empty is not. People need Christ’s spirit in them! An Evil spirit will return bringing 7 others more wicked than itself. (Another point; If we sweep our physical house without embarrassment, we ought to sweep our spiritual house even more readily without embarrassment.)
Mt 16:18-19 Binding and losing on earth and in heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.
Mt 16:24-25 Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Jesus…(lose your soul in order to find it)
Mt 18:17-18 Binding and loosing spiritual forces.
Mt 18:23-35 Delivered to the torturers (demons) if you refuse to forgive from your HEART. (forgive and lay down all resentment, bitterness, hatred)
Mt 25:41 Hell was first prepared for the devil and his angels.
**Mt 28:16-20 Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go and make disciples…all nations…baptizing them…teaching them to observe ALL things I’ve commanded you (the first disciples.)
Mk 1:15 Jesus dealt with the demon, not the man. Jesus expelled the demon from the
Mk 1:21-28 Jesus dealt with the demon, not the man. Jesus expelled the demon from the man not the man from the Mk 1:24 Demons have intellect…knowledge
Mk 1:32-34 (Lk 4:40-41) Jesus laid hands on and healed many people who were sick with various diseases, and he cast out many demons.
Mk 1:39 Expelling demons was as normal part of Jesus’ ministry as preaching
Mk 3:27 Strong man first to be bound in order to overcome and pillage what he and his gang were stealing
Mk 5:8-13 Jesus’s ministry against demons...legion…2000 pigs to their death in the Lake…demons are self-aware
Mk 6:7-13 Disciples given authority to cast out demons and preach the gospel. This included healing people aside from demons.
Mk 7:21-23 Many sins defile us…not just adultery and theft like David was defiled by. (this doesn’t mean we loose the Holy Spirit if we are repenting and walking toward righteousness and God)
Mk 9:17-29 Healing of sickness caused by demons. This epilepsy caused by demons. Jesus casts out demon from afflicted child by confronting it as a dumb/mute and deaf spirit. “This kind comes out only by prayer and fasting.” (Some are harder to expel than others, in this case because of the kind of demon and perhaps other times because of the person being a strategic battle ground). Jesus highlights lack of FAITH as the hindrance vs19, and FAITH as the solution vs 22 which is further achieved by prayer and fasting vs 29.
Mk 9:38-42 Someone not part of Jesus’s group of disciples was casting out demons in Jesus name. John was concerned but Jesus wasn’t. “Don’t stop him,” He said. “He who is not against us is for us.” He also said, “ No one who performs a miracle in my name will soon be able to speak evil of me.” Put’s church denominations and pope’s lines of authority into a different perspective than some have when they think of being under authority.
Mk 11:25-26 When praying, first forgive all others if you want forgiveness from your Father in heaven
Mk 16:9 Mary Magdalene was the FIRST human witness of Jesus’ resurrection…this was the SAME LADY from whom 7 demons were cast out by Jesus!
Mk 16:15-16 He who believes AND is baptized will be saved. Not an option that follows salvation…baptism is an outward act of obedience expressing the inward work of faith in our hearts thus making salvation complete. (Somewhat like sex consummates or completes marriage) A person who has believed but has not been baptized has been incompletelysaved. It is only completesalvation that grants us the legal right to be free from demonic oppression…not only saved butseparatedfrom the world having passed through the water out of Satan’s kingdom into God’s kingdom. (T.S.E.D. p236) That legal right can be lived out for freedom or through welcoming sin and not being controlled by the Holy Spirit, we can choose demonic oppression instead, even though we have the legal right to freedom.
**Mk 16:15-18 Great commission goes international, in my name they shall cast out demons, etc. lay hands on sick and they will get well
Lk 4:1, 14 Jesus entered his conflict with Satan ‘filled’ with the Holy Spirit but he came out of it in the ‘power’ of the Holy Spirit. God released the power of the HS through us only in the measure that we are victorious in our conflict with Satan. Spiritual conflict is not the evidence of failure but rather an essential condition for fruitful ministry.
Lk 4:1-13 Devil’s temptation of Jesus
Lk 4:13 The devil waits for opportune times to tempt us…obviously looking for a time we might be weak. He came to Jesus when He was weak at the end of a 40 day fast. Thankfully Jesus was strong in Spirit even if hungry in body.
Lk 4:16-21 Jesus quotes Isaiah-The Spirit of the Lord has anointed[selected and empowered/equipped] me to bring Good News to the poor.He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free and that the time of the Lord’s favour has come NLT See also Acts 10:37-38
Lk 4:39 Here Jesus rebukes a fever. While demons can often be the cause of sickness, we can't be certain this instance was a demon. Either way, we need to apply the consistent exercise of our spiritual senses in every situation we encounter. God uncovers demonic activity at timing of his own choosing. We are in a war. The more battles we win the more we learn to recognize Satan’s tactics.
Lk 4:40-41 Jesus laid hands onsick and demon possessed healed and delivered.
Lk 6:46 Jesus asks why people call him Lord and not obey him?
Lk 7:7-10 Italian with great faith knew about authority. When we are truly submitted under the authority of Jesus, He gives us authority. Living unsubmitted to Him is to lack authority.
Lk 8:27-33 Jesus asked demon, “What is your name?" "Legion...Don’t send us to the abyss” the demons plea. One man contained enough demons to send 2000 pigs over a cliff. They like to work in gangs.
Lk 10:17 Disciples reporting back that even the demons are subject to us in your name
***Lk 10:1-20 Disciples reporting back that ‘Even the demons are subject to us in your name.’ “I give you authority to trample over serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you,” says Jesus

Lk 13:32 Jesus informs Herod that he will continue to cast out demons and heal people–ministry from now on until his job is finished on the third day
Lk 22:3-4 Satan entered Judas (not necessarily Satan in person but by his servants)
*Jn 7:38-39 The Holy Spirit causes rivers of living water to flow out of a believer’s life (in context of continuous obedience.)
Jn 8:31-32 If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. (THIS IS THE CONDITION OF FREEDOM)
Jn 8:36 If the son makes you free you shall be free indeed.
Jn 10:10 Thief comes to steal, kill and destroy (Christ comes to give abundant life)
*Jn 14:6 Only one way…Jesus
*Jn 16:8 It is the Holy Spirit who convicts us of sin. (We tell people about Him. He's the one who convicts them.)
*Jn 17:15-22 Jesus prays for our protection from the evil one. Just as Jesus, we are not of this world but we are sent to be in the world to bring truth that results in holiness, united in God, effective in His Kingdom work. We have the same glory the Father gave Jesus. Note the great commission within this prayer.
Jn 17:17 Jesus says to His Father, "Your word is truth."
Jn 21:15-17 If we have opened the door to a demon by saying the wrong thing, we need to cancel the wrong thing by saying the right thing. Interesting how Peter denied Jesus three times but after the resurrection, Jesus led him to unsay his denial by affirming his love of Jesus three times.
Acts 2:38-41 Repent and be baptized. That same day, 3000 repented and were baptized.
Acts 3:21 First deliverance, then restoration
Acts 8:5-13 Philip’s crowds came because of the dramatic miracles/deliverance he did. Demons manifested loud and ugly.
Acts 8:7,12 After demons cast out they believed and were baptized immediately
Acts 8:36-40 What is to hinder my being baptized? Nothing, if you believe and have repented in your heart. Baptized immediately upon repenting.
Acts 10 Gentiles speak in tongues…not because they were perfect yet! God doesn’t need us perfect to be His children or to use us or to receive a supernatural gift…He needs us submitted as children of God.
Acts 16:16 Divinations
Acts 16:32-33 Baptized same day upon believing
Acts 17:30 All are required to repent laying down our rebellion
Acts 19:5 Baptized immediately upon hearing and believing
Acts 19:11-17 Seven sons of Sceva (who didn’t know Jesus) try casting out a demon “in the name of the Jesus Paul preaches,” but the demon beats them up. The state of the ministeris much more important than the formula! Also, note Paul’s distance deliverance/healing ministry via hanker-chiefs.

Rom 1:4 The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of HOLINESS
Rom 3:23 All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

*Rom 16:17 The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet.
1 Cor 2:4 Paul offered the gospel not by clever and persuasive talk but by demonstration of God’s power. That’s why people believed. Same reason people believed Jesus so widely.
1 Cor 2:11 Only we and God know our thoughts until we communicate them. Satan doesn’t.
1 Cor 8:5-6 Only one God, one Lord Jesus
1 Cor 9:26 I do not fight like a man beating the air aimlessly but with purpose.
1 Cor 10:1-2 Baptism illustrated by Israel passing through the Red Sea, not only saved but separated from the world. Through vs 11 shows we learn lessons from Israel’s experience
1 Cor 10:20-21 Occult/false religion
1 Cor 11:1 Imitate Paul as he imitates Christ.
1 Cor 11:2-7 To be under authority is to be protected. Not to be is to be unprotected. Christ is head of the man. Man is the head of the wife.
1 Cor 12:8, 10 Two supernatural gifts here; word of knowledge and discerning of spirits are helpful gifts in a healing/expelling demons operation
1 Cor 14:21 By people of strange tongues and by the lips of foreigners will I speak to this people, and even then they will not listen to me, says the Lord. (ESV)
1 Cor 15:33 Evil company corrupts good habits
1 Cor 15:54 Our mortal has not yet put on immortality nor our corruptible the incorruptible, thus the possibility of sinning and of demonic oppression is real. A demon can go anywhere sin and disease can go.

1 Cor 16:14 Let all that you do be done with love
2 Cor 2:11 Forgiveness steals an advantage from Satan
2 Cor 4:4 The god of this age (or god of this world) has blinded the eyes from knowing the glory of Christ is the exact likeness of God
2 Cor 5:7 We walk by faith, not by sight…that certainly describes a ministry of deliverance too!
2 Cor 6:17-18 Be holy/separate as a son or daughter of God…
2 Cor 7:1 “Let us cleanse ourselves…” by confessing, repenting…we are responsible to our part in the cleansing process. Then with the word us, even the great Apostle Paul included himself as one who still continually needed to be cleansed, yet needing to attain full holiness. In Phil 3:12-15 he says again, “Not that I have already attained…” but pressing toward the goal. This corrects any who twist Scripture suggesting we are able to live in perfect holiness…even saying they have attained this! As much as we ought all to shoot for holiness, and we grow hugely, there will inevitably be a difference between our target and our shot as long as we are on this side of heaven. (5:15 in the audio book)
2 Cor 7:5 Paul’s struggles with fear…even a great apostle deal with fear.
*2 Cor 10:4-5 Our weapons are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strong holds, arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God…controlling every thought to obey Christ.
*2 Cor 11:3 Paul expresses concern that Christians can be corrupted by different spirits, another Jesus, another gospel.
2Cor 11:14 Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light
2 Cor 12:2-4 Where God dwells…Paul, whether in the body or out of it, he saw the third heaven and heard things he can’t tell. Sometimes God does things we don’t fully understand be we don’t need to. He’s bigger than us!
Gal 2:20 We are crucified with Christ…it’s no longer I that lives.
Gal 3:13-14 Christ became a curse for us saving us from the curse of the law. He took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing.
Gal 5:4 Trying to be good enough to save yourself instead of trusting Jesus blood is to fall away from grace.
Gal 5:16-17 Live by the Spirit, not by the desires of the sinful nature (sometimes translated flesh).
Gal 5:19-21, 24 Works of flesh are crucified by those in Christ
Eph 1:22-23 Christ is head of the church, his body.
*Eph 2:8-9 Saved by faith, not by works
Eph 4:24 Let the new man come to life in Christ in complete spiritual health who is then very strong against demonic attacks but NOT immune to them as if the attacks can’t happen. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.
Eph 4:26-27 Don’t give the devil a foothold. Anger is one way to do so, so don’t let the sun go down on your anger.
*Eph 5:18 Be not drunk with wine but continually filled with the Holy Spirit. (Prince points out that most Christians would agree being drunk is wrong but how many would agree that not being filled with the Holy Spirit is wrong?) Staying filled leaves no room for demonic spirits!
Eph 6:12 Principalities and powers, rulers and authorities (dwell in the heavenlies, not just earthbound)
Eph 6:11-18 Put on the whole armour of God that we can stand against the devil. (Truth, righteousness, gospel, faith, salvation, God’s voice or rhema, all prayer-our intercontinental missile)
Phil 3:12 Not that I have already attained perfection, but I press on
Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! COUNTER FODDER
Col 2:11-12 God uses baptism to have affect REAL effect against sin in our lives by the cutting off of the carnal nature.
**Col 2:14-15 By victoriously nailing our sins to the cross, Jesus has disarmedprincipalities and powers of Satan that oppose us.
Col 3:3, 5 Put to death your old man and keep him dead, then put on the new man Eph 4:24
1Thes 5:8 Hope of salvation (helmet of salvation)
1 Tim 1:15-16 Paul says he received much much patient mercy from God as a pattern for us who need the same mercy.
*1 Tim 4:1 Some Christians give heed to deceiving doctrines of demons…departing from the faith
1 Tim 6:20-21 Religions with special secrets…ie mormonism and freemasonry. (eastern star, shriners, rainbow girls, demolez)
*2 Tim 1:7 God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear/timidity but of love, power, and self discipline
2 Tim 3:7 Some are always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of truth…they have no awe of God nor Spiritual consciousness to make all the learning mean anything practical so that God’s Kingdom would come and His will be done here on earth as it is in Heaven! (These types need to be challenged but not allowed to consume our time and certainly not allowed to have authority in our lives.)
Titus 3:3 Paul includes himself as at one time, foolish, disobedient, enslaved in lusts
*Heb 2:14-15 Jesus has victory over death. (Demons are as powerless against deliverance as they were powerless to stop the resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth!)
Heb 3:1 Jesus is the high priest of our confession(saying the same as Jesus says)
**Heb 4:12 The Word of God (Rhema) is living and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and joints and marrow and discerns of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (This is insight straight from God by His voice)
Heb 6:18-20 Jesus is our hope, our eternal anchor, our way into the holy of holies to be present with God.
Heb 10:14 We are ‘perfected’ past tense, but sanctification is progressive…we ‘are becoming sanctified’
Heb 10:24-25 Fellowship, stirring up love and good works, not forsaking fellowship
Heb 11:1 Faith is the substance of things hoped for…so hope is not just wishful thinking
Heb 12:1, 4 Sin is a continual life and death struggle…the struggle is a part of life...get rid of that which slows you down in the race
Heb 12:14 Strive for peace with everyone and holiness, without which, no one will see the Lord
James 1:26 Demons that compel people. The tongue is often compelled out of control…hardest muscle to tame.
James 2:19 Demons tremble (they have emotion)
James 3:2 The control of the tongue is the mark of spiritual maturity.
James 4:3 Sometimes you don’t get what you pray for because you ask with wrong motives
*James 4:7-8 Submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw close to God…He will draw close to you.
*1 Pet 1:2 Our protection depends on meeting God’s condition…obedience just like in Ex 12:22 where Passover depended on obedience, “Stay inside the house!” The blood of Jesus doesn’t protect those who continue in disobedience
1 Pet 1:16 Be holy as I’m holy.
1 Pet 3:7 If there is not harmony between husband and wife, the husband’s prayers will be hindered
1 Pet 3:19-21 Baptism illustrated by Noah’s flood, not only saved but separated from the world
1 Pet 5:5-6 God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. We may have to choose between dignity and deliverance.
1 Pet 5:8 Your great enemy or adversary the devil like a roaring lion on the hunt to destroy
*1 Pet 5:8-9 Admonition to Christians…be self-controlled, vigilant, resist the devil who
is like a roaring lion seeking to destroy us. (Don’t act as if there is no danger)
1 Jn 1:7 If we continually walk in the light…it’s a major condition for the promises to be continually fulfilled; fellowship with believers and cleansing blood of Jesus.
*1 Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
*1 Jn 2:16 Lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, pride of life. (In other words…Feels good? Do it. Looks good? Get it. It’s your live do as you please.)
1 Jn 3:8 Jesus came to destroy the devil’s work. We are to carry out what Jesus started.
1 Jn 3:15 Hatred is as murder
1 Jn 4:1-6 Testing spirits...Error, falsehood
1 Jn 5:18-19 Christ’s people are protected when living in righteousness but a practicer of sin opens the door to Satan’s influence
