How do you tell a demon to leave? This question is based on several suppositions. First, the assumption that an individual receiving prayer ministry has displayed indisputable demonic behavior, some form of manifestation. Second, that whoever is praying with that person has the desire to banish the evil spirit. Is there a right way and a wrong way to attempt an exorcism? Yes, but before explaining the best approach to ridding an individual from a demon, let’s consider what not to do when confronted with demonic behavior.

Don’t adopt the approach that demons shouldn’t be allowed to speak. Demons are generally not going to be cast out, and kept out, unless the relevant curses in the life of the host are broken and the demon’s legal rights are removed. Our International School of Exorcism has detailed training on how best to approach this. We emphasize that some things which are necessary for a successful deliverance can only be known by demonic interrogation. It’s what the demons know concerning its root and right of entry that must be revealed. In addition, it is usually crucial to understand how the demon currently operates in the host. In most cases, this information can only be known by demanding that the manifesting demon reveal it. In the majority of cases involving demonic possession, the evil spirits can speak and should be made to speak. This is biblical, as explained in our School of Exorcism.

In most cases, the secret knowledge of curses and open doors of entry are not known by the deliverance minister. This is especially true when the facts are obscured by ancient history. But usually, demons know the exact origin of their inhabitation and how they are currently embedded. Get these vital facts by demanding disclosure in the name of Jesus. Once the demon’s legal rights and tormenting curses have been confirmed, here’s what to do next. Have the possessed person renounce these curses and legal rights. This is done verbally by the host and verbally ratified by the demon.

When it comes to the actual expulsion of the demon, I prefer a precise, time-tested protocol. Our School of Exorcism details this procedure. I almost always use the same, exact wording. Why? It works. It’s effective. It seals the deal. It contractually binds the demon to his own declaration of doom. Once that takes place, the battle is essentially over. Only the final expulsion remains. Others who do deliverance may differ and have their own technique, some quite exotic and often not biblical. For me, having the ruling spirit, the strong man, say, “I go to the pit,” is crucial and confirming.

After 50,000 successful, documented exorcisms, this formula satisfies the “how” of telling a demon to leave. Even the spurious Jewish exorcists of Acts 19:13 knew enough to declare, “We adjure you by Jesus.” They had seen Paul cast out demons in this manner. What Paul did, I do, and add to it modern vernacular to bring closure in the deliverance process. If you’re interested in deliverance, enroll in our School of Exorcism. Watch examples on our YouTube exorcism channel and get on with the task of setting people free by the power of Christ.

An Encouraging Word

THE PIT OF SIN

“He made a pit and dug it out and has fallen into the ditch which he made” (Psalm 7:15). Such is the plight of a wicked man. No matter how long he takes to dig a pit in his life, a few hours or a lifetime, the outcome is inevitable. He digs it; he falls into it. There’s no one to blame but himself. And when he falls, he must wonder why he dug it so deep in the first place. Sadly, for some that pit is the Pit, the Abyss, and it is deep indeed. Beware how your actions are digging a hole for your future when sin has taken a toll. Stop digging your way into sin and destruction while there is still time for the Savior to pull you out.
