I read the review who gave this book 1 star. This person did not understand what Don was saying. Dickerman does not say Christians get demon possessed. The Greek word means demonized. And anyone, especially believers can have demons if there is legal ground for them to be there. It does not mean the demons possess a person. We can be oppressed and that takes place in our soul and body (flesh) that is why had i not gone through casting out the demons of alcoholism, sexual perversion and others I would have not been set free and most likely struggling in these areas where I once was in bondage . We are a 3 part being: body , soul and spirit. As a born again believer in The Lord Jesus Christ, I invited the Holy Spirit to live inside me. No demons can ever obtain legal right to my spirit . I belong to Jesus. This book uses Scripture throughout and I believe is a wake up call for the church. We have so many people who supposedly give their life to Christ , get saved but are not living in victory and still in bondage to so many things. Jesus wants His bride healed. It's all because of His blood that was shed in our place that sets us free. He said to "cast" them out. (demons) not "counsel" our way out. We need to listen to Jesus. This book gives testimony of many set free and it truly brings glory to our Lord. I was caught up in the new age movement and set free from so many lies of the devil. I didn't even believe in satan or demons for a while. Spiritual warfare is real and we have to focus on the victory that was already won at Calvary. Thank The Lord He told us what to do. Another thing I appreciate Don saying is that there is no clear cut way to minister deliverance. It is all Holy Spirit led. And Hollywood unfortunately has perverted this. I believe The Lord wants to set so many of us free and these materials are equipping the body of Christ for so many to be healed and set free.
I read the parts of this book allowed online here at CBC that they allow to wet your appetite and it sounded GREAT! When the book finally got to my house I flopped down and eagerly gulped down sentence after sentence only to find out that the people he "supposedly" exorsized were just depressed Christians.
Some people must really think that the HOLY SPIRIT is some weakling all tied up and beat up by demons who come in His abode and take it over.
GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN ME, than he who is in the world. Should be ringing in the ears of those reading this book.
It supposes that people who are saved and sealed with the HOLY SPIRIT can be possessed with demons.
It's ludicrous, don't waste your money, or the nuerons in your brain for this junk.
This is the best book that I have ever read on deliverance. I was impresssed by the humility Don displayed and the simple truths he applied when ministering deliverance. It is very effective. We have seen many set free in just a few short weeks! Praise God!!!
