True Repentance Is The First Deliverance


Repentance is the first deliverance anybody needs. The first rule of deliverance is repentance from all sins and obedience to the Word of God. And the Last Rule of Deliverance is Holiness (Consecration) and service to God. From the Scripture below, Jesus made it clear that if you continue in sin after you have received your deliverance, your situation will then become worst than it was before you were delivered.

It affirms that the only guarantee for you to keep your deliverance and miracles is only by living a consecrated life. Holiness is a spiritual antibiotics to the devil and his agents. No evil spirit can posses a person that lives a holy life.

In John 5:14, the Bible says, ” Afterward Jesus finds him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto you”.

It is only Consecration that will help you to retain your deliverance, else, the enemy will return, but this time,in full force, stronger than before with terrible consequences. This is why many people go through deliverance but their situation became worse. The Scriptures below show us the reason why some people’s situation become worse after they had gone through deliverance: series of Deliverance, yet No Solutions:

In Matthew 12:43-45, the Bible talks about when the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, how he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and when he finds none; he says that he will return into my house from where I came out; and when he comes and finds it empty, swept, and garnished.

He goes back and take with him seven other spirits more wicked than him he is, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. And that this is how it shall also be unto this wicked generation.

Another reason why many people are candidates of multiple/constant deliverance without solutions is the effects of “Negative Anointing”. When a false prophet/pastor conducts deliverance on a person; by laying on of evil contaminated hands, or when they carryout other spiritual exercises on a person.

These include satanic sacrifices, rituals which some call ministry work, bathing in the flowing River, or bathing naked in the middle of the night or at crossroads, being confined in a dark room for days, prayer programs with evil Candles of different colours, demonic anointing oil, soap, sponge, cream, perfume, rings or amulets etc.

By these, Negative Anointing is transferred, and the situation of that person might improve for a little while, but comes back worse. This is the major reason why many people are slaves (constant customers) to the so called Prophets or Prayer Houses who take advantage of their ignorance and lack of consecration. Most times, they are even abused and raped or sexually harassed by the so-called prophets, especially women.

Obadiah 1:17 says, “But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions”.

Many believers are candidates of constant deliverance, frequenting deliverance grounds; running from one prophet to another, from one mountain to another without any solution to their problems or any end to their affliction/oppression, instead, the situation has become worse, all because of  lack of repentance. When all they needed to do is just to repent of their sins and God will give them rest.

In 1 Peter 1:23 the Bible says and I quote, Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever”.

What they need could be just repentance from raging anger; or repentance from unforgiveness. It could be covetousness that is your own challenge, it could be greed that is the ladder the enemy is using to gain access into your life.

What about drunkenness, gluttony, sexual Immorality, prayerlessness, bitterness, Malice, negative confession, wickedness, idolatry, witchcraft/sorcery, Hatred, hypocrisy, lukewarmness, eye-service/pretense, Envy, Pride, Lust, Arrogance, Disobedience and Stubbornness towards God, lack of Witnessing, Fraud, Stealing, Abortion, Murder, etc. All that they needed is genuine repentance and to really surrender their lives to Jesus Christ and walk with God.

In Proverbs 16:7, the Bible says that when a man’s ways please the LORD, He  makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

1 Peter 3:12 says that the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.  And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

God will always take care of His own, anything that is dedicated to God is secured. You can dedicate your life to Him and let Him take over your life battles. But the thing is that our God is a Holy God, and you cannot dedicate to Him something that is defiled by the world and lusts. You can only dedicate what is holy to God and that is why you have to live a holy life.

1 Peter 1:15 says that as believers that we should be as God who had called us, that we should be holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, “be you holy; for I am holy“. 

Do not give the devil the advantage over your life, because the only advantage the devil needs over a life is unholy living. Lack of holiness attracts all the evil spirits and the powers of darkness, and this is the reason why many are suffering from demon possession and satanic attacks/oppression. Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you that is double minded”


The book of  Isaiah 59:1 says that  the LORD’s hand is not short,that it cannot save neither is His ear heavy, that it cannot hear,  but that it our iniquities that is what is separating us from God, and that our sins have hid his face from us, that He will not hear us. .

The solution lies in the fear of God and it is Repentance! Repentance! Repentance! Repentance! Repentance! Repentance! Repentance! And humbly seek the face of God by accepting His grace through our Lord Jesus Christ. [Ephesians 4:21 -32]


1 John 3: 9-10 says that whosoever that is born of God does not sin, because the seed of God  remains in him. He cannot sin, because he is born of God. For this is how you know the children of God, and the children of the devil; whosoever does not live a righteous life is not of God, as well as he that does not love his brother. 


May the LORD shine His light upon you and show you His Salvation, in the mighty name of Jesus.
