In my first blog about self-deliverance, I laid a foundation for how and why self-deliverance is biblically possible. Now we are going to focus on the practical. This is a crash course on breaking generational curses, casting out demons, and finding freedom by yourself. You don’t have to live in bondage and wait for the next church service or conference to be free. Instead, you can experience freedom right where you are – in your home, office, or car!
Please know that even though you might be by yourself during this process of self-deliverance, you are not without help! You can trust the Holy Spirit will help you through this deliverance process. I want to prepare you that you might experience some unusual physical manifestations as we go through this process. Symptoms like yawning, vomiting, burping, and ears popping are common.
Step 1: Repent
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree.”
Repentance is acknowledging that you deserve the full penalty for your sin.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The wages of sin are death but the gift of God is eternal life. We deserve sin and death as a payment for our sin.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
The people in your bloodline sinned on your mother and father’s sides. Because of that, you deserve the curse. You deserve death and hell. But when you repent, the curse of sin is broken.
So that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
I am the seed of Abraham and his blessing is mine. What does it mean? It means I’m a sinner, but I am engrafted into Abraham’s spiritual lineage. I have access to all his blessings.
Let’s start with a prayer of repentance to get our lives set right. Pray out loud:
I repent for all of my sins. Father, forgive me. Wash me clean with your blood. I give my life to you in full surrender. All that I am, all that I ever will be, belongs to you now, Jesus. I accept the work of the cross. I am completely and totally free. In Jesus’ name, amen.
If you prayed that prayer with faith, you are now a believer. So don’t go back and say, “I’m not saved,” or doubt your salvation. You are free. Your spirit is free. You’re redeemed, and you’re going to heaven.
Some may experience difficulty in praying that prayer of repentance. Even the physical act of getting the words out can be challenging for some who are heavily afflicted. Some may experience vomiting or a physical reaction. If that’s you, you have to get the words out, “Jesus Christ is Lord of my life.” Continue to say it until you can get the words out of your mouth because repentance is our first step.
Repentance always requires action. Your repentance may include throwing away or destroying items that were involved in your sin. These can include occultic items or addictive items like cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, or pornography. I encourage you to accompany your repentance with action to see lasting fruit!
Step 2: Renounce
Now that your spirit is redeemed and free, we will move to your physical body and your soul. Demons can hide in your physical body and your soul, which is your mind, will, and emotions. To get freedom in those areas, you will need to go through the process of breaking curses or renouncing.
To renounce, pray this out loud and with authority:
I break and release myself from all generational curses and iniquities as a result of the sins of my ancestors in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses on both sides of my family, back 60 generations.
I break all curses of witchcraft, sorcery, and divination in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of pride and rebellion in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of death and destruction in the name of Jesus.
I break and rebuke all curses of sickness and infirmity in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of poverty, lack, and debt in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of rejection in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of double-mindedness and schizophrenia in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from the curse of Jezebel and Ahab in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of divorce and separation in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of lust and perversion in Jesus’ name.
I break and release myself from all curses of confusion and mental illness in the name of Jesus.
I break and release myself from all curses of idolatry in Jesus’ name.
I break and release myself from all curses causing accidents and premature death in Jesus’ name.
I break and release myself from all spoken curses, from all negative words spoken against me and by others and by those in authority and I bless them.
I break and release myself from all self-inflicted curses by negative words I have spoken.
Step 3: Cast Out
All believers have the authority to cast demons out.
Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
You are not exempt. The authority that Christ has given you works for you just like anyone else. That means that when you cast out demons in this step, you will experience deliverance.
Say this loudly and boldly:
I command every demon hiding and operating behind a curse to come out of me in the name of Jesus. You are no longer welcome in my body or soul, and you have no right or authority to be here. I cast you out in the name of Jesus. Every demon of depression, anxiety, fear, torment, every demon coming from curses from the bloodline of oaths and contracts, we break it in the name of Jesus and cast you out in the name of Jesus.
You are now free!
