STEPS TO DELIVERANCE: 6. LIST THE SYMPTOMS

At this point I may ask them to fill out the LIST OF SYMPTOMS of demonizing and or the list of sins that lead to demonizing (page 32-33, 37-38) if I feel more detailed information is needed.  I may have them fill those papers in before we meet or at the very start.  I will use these papers and notes I have taken as I’ve asked them the questions to guide my praying.  Don’t rush this stage, the final product will only be as good as your gathering of this information has been.  Like a doctor, the results depend on this part of the process.

            Mocking and blasphemous thoughts (esp. when hearing spiritual truths)

            Perceptual distortions (thinking others are angry at you when they are not)

            Repetitious dreams or nightmares (sexual, horror-filled, fearful, etc)

            Seizures (Mk. 1:26 Mk. 7:24-30 Mk. 17:15) (may or may not be demonic)

            Pain without justifiable explanation, problem doctors can’t cure

            Physical ailments alleviated by a spiritual command (epileptic seizure, asthma attack,

headache, nausea, etc., which stops when commanded in Jesus’ name to be gone)

            Sudden interference with bodily functions (buzzing in ears, irritability to speak or hear,                   increased hypersensitivity in hearing or touch, sudden chills, etc.)
