Neurotic persons are full of worry, fear, frustration, envy, jealousy, depression, loneliness and anger.
They are unstable and unbalanced. They will be down with you one day and the next day they will be full of accusations that you are against them that you secretly hate them and that you are their enemy.
They also will go on a rampage with attacks against your character and slander of your name.
These persons are always negative and need reassurance about themselves. Trying to have a relationship or friendship with a man/woman that is emotionally unbalanced and unstable is exhausting and full of bad frustration.
As a leader and a person who operates in deliverance, I have to be able to discern if a person is experiencing attacks because of demonic influence, or if what they are going through was created from a trauma, and it’s only fleshly manifestations of emotions from it.
You see, all things are not demons and devils. Some things are just flesh and carnality.
Some problems in a person’s personality or character are not a generational curse, but were created from an emotional or mental trauma that has bruised them mentality and they need spiritual counseling to help them get pass it, more than having a demon cast out.
Many things from mental and emotional instances were healed by me being able to just sometimes talk to somebody with wisdom and knowledge of the situation.
I shall never forget in my early walk, because we were taught everything was a demon or devil, that I was going through something and I was fasting praying and telling ABBA to get the demon out of me when the Holy Ghost spoke to me and said you don’t have a demon you have an emotional situation that was created by the thing that hurt you.
He begin to take me to the word and taught me how to renew my mind. Then I was able to change in my mindset, which cause me not to display those emotions and attitudes every again, and its thirty five years later those emotions and attitudes have never returned.
I think we have become so demon fascinated, until we want people to have them to prove our importance, or to let people see we have some kind of power over demons.
I have found a lot of times that people are creating acts of deliverance for something that is not there!.
Knowing when it’s the presence of a demon or devil and when it’s a flesh issue created from a trauma makes the difference in how you approach a person for deliverance.
Sometimes you cast out spirits — sometimes you have to teach them the Word to renew their mind.
Either way, the person gets the deliverance they need through the power of YAHWEH but through different methods.
The most important thing is the person got their liberation and freedom!
