This is a guest teaching by Lisa Camme
Before there’s a mass deliverance, there’s a cry that God hears and there’s a counter from the enemy.
Covenant language is God talking to His people from before the foundations of the world. God said, “I will be God to you.” God makes the promises and keeps the promises. Then He works in us and through us.
The New Covenant frees us from the dominion of sin and the guilt that plagues us. The New Covenant is between the Father and the Son, not us and God.
2 Timothy 1:9 (ESV)
Who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.
He gave it to us according to His own purpose which was given to us in Christ before the world began. You are not happenstance. You are not an accident. I don’t care how you came into this world, God is speaking to you and giving you purpose before you were even born, before you sinned, and before you got into the mess you were in.
Now we see this conversation that the Father is talking to the Son in Psalm 89. It’s a discourse and He says:
I have found David, my servant;
with my holy oil I have anointed him,
so that my hand shall be established with him;
my arm also shall strengthen him.
My steadfast love I will keep for him forever,
and my covenant will stand firm[d] for him.
I will establish his offspring forever
and his throne as the days of the heavens.
Then I said, “Behold, I have come;
in the scroll of the book it is written of me:
I delight to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.”
It’s amazing because when the Old Covenant is obsolete, God comes and begins to write His instructions in your heart and in your mind. He engraves them and He not only gives you the information, but He also gives you the revelation and then gives you the power to do whatever He’s calling you to do. The cross is the fulfillment of the promise of God and the promise of God is the person of the Holy Spirit. We were never meant to get free in our own strength. And we were never meant to free people in our own strength. In 2 Corinthians 5:17, it says that when we came to Christ, all things have gone and He makes all things new. He gives you a new heart, a new mind. He gives you new friends, a new church, new people, and a new prayer life. He makes all things new.
In Ezekiel 37, You can see the power and the equipping of the covenant. He talks about the “I will’s” of God. Whenever you see the “I Will’s” in the scripture, it is God keeping His covenant. He said:
- I will take out your stony stubborn heart
- I will give you a new heart
- I will put my Spirit in you
- I will CAUSE you to obey me
In short, we’re equipped and enabled to say yes to God. Sin is subdued, and the dominion of sin is broken.
Jesus frees us from sin and then He fills us with himself so we can be free, think free, talk free.
Jesus doesn’t want to come and make you a better you. He came to get rid of you so that you could be a supernatural vessel in this Kingdom. It’s not behavior modification, it’s total self-renunciation. You have to renounce self! Get rid of it!
Power was given to you when Jesus rebuked the devil at the cross! You can renounce self and whatever you need for chains to break. Renounce and rebuke unbelief in your life.
The Oneness of the Covenant
I want to touch on the oneness of the covenant. Free people free people. Delivered people deliver people.
David Wilkerson said, “God sent His Son to redeem a lost world, and Jesus fulfilled His mission through the Cross. Since every believer is one with Christ through faith, we are also partners In the work and ministry.”
- We are vessels of the prophetic
- We are vessels to evangelize
- We are vessels of deliverance
When that Spirit is flowing through us there’s a free flow of evangelistic deliverance. The Holy Spirit will lead us to every bound-up, done-with-sin soul.
Jesus’ Covenantal Prayer Closet
In John 17 we see Jesus in his covenantal prayer closet. He is pulling us into the Covenant. He prays for himself, for his disciples, and prays for you and me, before we were ever born. This is an eternal, evangelistic power. He says:
Father, I finished the work, I did my work, now do yours. He’s pulling us into the covenant and asking the Father to give us everything He gave His Son. When you get the son, you get everything – All provision, all power, all protection, and all purity!
My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message. We are the answer to Jesus’ prayer. God has works prepared for us before the foundations of the world.
That all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in me and I am in You. May they also be in Us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me. Oneness is the outflow of God’s love and power. This is evangelistic deliverance.
I in them and you in me, so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. When we are walking in covenant, we are walking in the pathway and power of Jesus’ intercession. When we got saved, we entered the pathway of prepared works that the Father and Son decided before we were born. Every one of our days were written in a book. You are not an accident. You are not a happenstance.
The Power of the Prayer Meeting
The coming revival will start with those who have red hot intercession privately that breaks out in bondage-breaking anointing corporately. Breakers get the breakthrough privately before they break out publicly. We must get back to the prayer meeting. The devil shut the mouth of the church and removed the prayer meeting. We must get together habitually and continually to push back the darkness and pray the devil back to hell.
Jesus promised, “greater works we will do.” Greater works are tied to answered prayer. Prayer does the work. Prayer is the work. Prayer can break any bondage. Our prayers create a modern-day exodus to bring those out of bondage and sin. Prayer drowns the devil in his own schemes. Demons can’t swim! The Holy Spirit leads us and guides us. He searches and seeks until every lost coin and lost sheep is delivered. When I’m moving from prayer, I’m not needs-driven, I’m Spirit-led. I’m not obligated to talk to everyone, but available to talk to anyone. It’s the Holy Spirit that does the work.
He Hears the Cry
They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.[a] 2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. 4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. 5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. 7 He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!” 8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”
9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.
11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. 12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” 13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.
14 Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened. 15 When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid. 16 Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man—and told about the pigs as well. 17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.
18 As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. 19 Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” 20 So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis[b] how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.
In Mark 5, Jesus fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah 61. He is evangelizing a man and destroying the demonic powers. There is a cry that reaches Jesus. God heard the cry and remembered His covenant and was ready to act. He heard the cry of His children bound in chains, in bitter bondage from taskmasters. He heard the cry of an addicted and afflicted generation. The demonized man was able to break the restraints of self-help programs, but he couldn’t break the devil’s chains.
God is raising up breakers to break the spirit of deception and rejection and pray the demons into pigs. Demons and pigs can’t swim! A cry was heard in the spirit on the other side of the lake! Jesus said, “Quick, get in the boat, we’re going to the other side!” The other side of prayer is deliverance ministry. The winds and waves were fierce, attempting to hinder deliverance. Jesus rebuked the elements. The word rebuked suggests to me that the devil was behind the hindrance. In another storm, Jesus spoke, “Peace, be still.” Sometimes before your greatest deliverance ministry, Jesus will allow the devil to whip up a storm so he can show you his power and authority over the elements and the demonic. In the storm, Jesus puts the devil on notice. He addresses the demons while delivering and evangelizing the demonized.
He teaches deliverance ministry as he breaks the bondages and breaks satan’s chains. This is the transforming power of covenantal evangelizing. He turns the demonized to the evangelized to the evangelist. Then he says, “Go home and tell your family all that God has done for you, and then go and do the same.” Free people free people.
By revealing his covenant to us, God wants to remove any doubts we have about His ability to keep us. It’s as if He’s saying, “I’m going to treat you as if you have no faith at all. I’ll make such a strong oath to you, you’ll have no choice but to believe in Me.”
When the Accuser Comes
We are to stay in Christ; abide in Him, trust in Him, and depend on Him. If we do, we will surely see His glory. The next time you struggle with a besetting sin, you may hear an accusing voice: “You’ve gone too far and sinned too often. God has turned you over to a reprobate mind. You’re unclean, unholy, no good, a disgrace to the gospel. You’ve driven the Holy Spirit from your life completely.”
When this happens, remind God, the Devil, and yourself: “I am one in covenant with the Father and Son. Jesus co-signed the covenant with His own blood, and the Father promised to keep me through all my trials. He’ll hold my hand no matter what comes and will never remove His love from me. He’ll lead me to victory!”
