Curriculum – Series 2: Using Binding & Loosing To Bring Healing
Binding and loosing is the process of securing or stopping Satan’s accomplices from carrying out their assignments against us. It occurs in the spiritual realm (see Ephesians 6:12) and loosens or frees us from their activity and influence.
Keys represent authority. The kingdom of God is defined as “righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (see Romans 14:17) not just in eternity but here and now. God has provided us with the keys to receive that peace and joy but it is up to us to unlock the door.
Binding and loosing restrains and ties up Satan’s influence. It provides the freedom to choose and respond to righteousness.
Deliverance removes unclean spirits and provides freedom to choose and respond to Christ.
Deliverance is not an area of ministry undertaken by covenant groups. It involves a depth and maturity of ministry that is beyond the scope and training of group leadership. When spirits are cast out and not kept out, the result can be worse (see Matthew 12:43-45).
Deliverance will also occur as a by-product of God’s working in our lives. As we learn His principles and apply them in our lives by walking in greater repentance and forgiveness as the Holy Spirit leads, we will find that the powers of darkness lose their ability to influence and torment us. This type of deliverance is often such a gentle work of God that we only recognize it by the changes we see in our attitudes, actions and feelings.
