"Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of hisdear Son:"Colossians 1:13
"The True Disciple is Born Delivered"
Because there are millions of so-called Christians who lost their love for the truth, God is sending astrong delusion. When men reject the truth they ultimately believe a lie. When men reject the Christthey ultimately accept the anti-christ.The newest delusion sweeping through the body of Christianity is the "Kingdom Now" philosophy.This is anti-christ, as it tends to take the place of Christ. This schism preaches that the church willusher in the Kingdom of God. This is nothing more than a replay of the Roman Catholic system in aProtestant setting. Denying the rapture, the tribulation, the millennium, they will subdue the earththrough a "Political Religious" machine.Once heresy is allowed or tolerated, there is always mutations, and many times the mutations are worse than the original. One of the worst of these fall-outs is the teaching that Christians need to bedelivered from demon spirits that have come down to them through their parents. Or in their unsavedstate they were involved in witchcraft is now in the New Creation. How the spirits come is of noconsequence, the tragedy is, the teaching that a "Born Again" believer can be demon possessed.Satan's purpose in the heresy is to gain control by making the believer dependent upon someoneinstead of God. Religion has always sought to replace God in being Lord over the Saints. Somereligions preach "Baptismal Regeneration" and of course, they must be the one to baptize you, else youare not saved. Catholicism puts Christ in the mass, so if you get Christ you get Him through the mass.Many (?) deliverance preachers make you believe that to be healed you must come to them.
If Any Man Be In Christ
To be born again is to be delivered from the powers of darkness,
"old things pass away, all thingsbecome new." 
The new creature is not a figment of the imagination. God is the Father of all who are born again, there is no connection with the old, and there are no demons in God to pass on to Hischildren. When a person is born again the Holy Spirit puts that person in Christ.
"For by one Spirit were ye all baptized into one body..." 
(I Corinthians 12:13) To be in Christ is to be in God.
"In him (God) we moveand breathe, and have our being." 
God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. (John 1:5) "In Christ"there is no darkness, no sin, no demons, and no genetic ties with the past.To saints in Rome Paul writes,
"Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness." 
(Romans 6:18) The Holy Spirit puts the emphasis on the little word "free." The new creation is born free.
Born Delivered
In the new birth the Holy Spirit puts you in Christ (I Corinthians 12:13). It was a miracle of God of  which you had nothing to do with, except to repent and believe the Gospel. Having said that, I hastenon to tell you that, you have everything to do with staying in Christ. John 15:4 commands us to abidein Christ. John 15:6 tells the terrible penalty for not abiding in Christ. John 15:7, gives the wonderfulreward for abiding in Christ.
"If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will,and it shall be done unto you." 
Psalms 91, tells the whole story:
"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abideunder the shadow of the Almighty." 
Every promise that follows depends entirely upon our abiding in
 
the secret place of the Most High. That secret place is Christ. It is not just a matter of taking thesethings by faith. It is mere confession. It is my abiding in the place where no plague can come. As weabide in Christ, God reckons the experience of Christ to be ours. Christ was never sick, He never knew fear, He had no demons, He had no bad genetic ties with the past. You don't have to counsel the new creation - there is no depression in Christ. Depression, sickness,fear, lust, hate, etc. all originate in the old creation. The Christians problems are always the results of reverting back to type. The allowing of the old nature to be resurrected. The answer to these problemsis the cross, not a psychological seance. The flesh and its works must be crucified. The new creationmust be,
"...trained up in the way that is right, and when he is old (mature) he will not depart fromit." 
He will not turn back to the world, the flesh, and the devil.Just as all is light in Christ, all is dark outside of Christ. It is true that Jesus destroyed the works of thedevil, but that is true only to those who are in Christ. Satan is still very much the god of this world, hecontrols everything, and everybody outside of Christ. Gods hedge about His people is Christ,consequently there is nothing, not family, business, finances, etc. that is protected outside of Christ.Let us get this clear, Satan can only kill, steal, and destroy, that which is not in Christ. When the Bibleadmonishes us to
"Give no place to the devil..." 
it is saying, don't give him any ground. The flesh andits works is his territory. To
"resist the devil" 
is more than saying,
"Get thee behind me Satan." 
it issaying,
"Yield not your members as instruments of unrighteousness." 
It is saying,
"Don't let the sungo down on your wrath." 
In other words, "Get off of Satan's territory." If you live on his ground, thecarnal nature, he will dominate your life.Seeing then that Satan cannot touch that which is in Christ, and that he controls the world outside of Christ, it naturally follows, our worst enemy is not the devil, it is "self." Jesus said of that nature, andof all who walk in it,
"Your father is the devil." 
God's Word is clear on the fact that for God to be yourFather, He must also be your God and Lord. The same is true on the other side, what Satan is father of he is also lord over. What modern Christianity fails to realize is, just as surely as the true church is the "Body of Christ," thecarnal nature is the body of Satan. The term "body" is speaking of the body of Christ, means, the vehicle of expression. For Christ to express Himself on earth He must have the church, His body.Likewise, Satan cannot do his evil work without a "body." Crucify the "flesh" and you render himhelpless. One work of the flesh is murder. God says, "the devil is a murderer." For him to murder hemust work through that nature whose works are murder. It does not matter that it is religious flesh, or worldly flesh, it is all of a piece. Some may be a little more refined than others, but the flesh that sits ona church pew on Sunday and lives for itself on Monday, is merely an extension of the Sodomitecommunity - there is no difference.The new creature never needs deliverance, he was created in righteousness and true holiness(Ephesians 4:24). He has the nature of God.
"Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for hisseed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." 
(I John 3:9) In verse 8 and IJohn 3, we have this:
"He that committeth sin is of the devil..." 
What does that mean? Simply this:since the new creation cannot sin, and yet we sometimes see sin in a child of God, there is nocontradiction here, the sin is a product of that nature in us, whose father is the devil. We don't needanyone to lay hands on us for deliverance. We need to repent of the sin, and deal with the uncrucifedflesh by denying its expression, which in reality is an expression of the devil.
"Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not..." 
(I John 3:6) Language can be no plainer. The "new creation" is not a figment of the imagination. It is a new life whose Father is God. It is a complete break from the old. Jesus in His humanity, was the "first born" of a new race. he did not come to head up achurch, made up of a failed humanity, trying to rid itself of demons.
"He that sinneth is of the devil..." 
(I John 3:8) puts all in focus. In every born again believer there aretwo natures. One is a member of the body of Christ, the other is a member of the body of Satan. Thenature we yield to we become the servant of (Romans 6:16).
"For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit." 
(Romans 8:5)
