08DELTRCD-7 - Chris Simpson - PERMANENTLY CLOSING THE DOOR TO DEMONIC RE-ENTRY - DONATION $4.00 - Another way to say Prov 26:2 is, where there is a curse there is a cause. Chris shares a vision he had in the 80's which was his confirmation that he needed to start a church. He says deliverance itself is not meant to stand alone. He gives illustration that spirits occupy ground. You have to eliminate the SIN. "When you empty the garbage the flies will leave". It is dangerous to cast out a demon without repentance. You must have discipline in your life. What is a disciple; one that is disciplined. It is stupid to focus on the demon. When you empty your garbage, do you really care what is in it? The fruit of ministry is that people love each other. He shares 7 areas of spiritual regimen (discipline) to permanently close the door to demonic re-entry with scripture and example of each. First principle: Matt 6:14-15 - keep short accounts in your relationships. Second principle: Eph 6:18 - Lock in a daily quiet time; "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure". Third principle: II Tim 2:15 - fall in love with God's Word. Fourth principle: Rom 12:1, 2 - Eliminate mind junk; especially TV, his "TV verses" are Pro 15:14, 21. Fifth principle: Matt 9:15 - Build a fasting regimen in your life; demons hide in flesh and manifest through the flesh when you yield to the flesh. A healthy way to break gluttony is to fast. Chris shares personal experience and stories on fasting. Sixth principle: Jam 5:16 - Open your life to real accountable relationships. Seventh principle: Matt 10:7, 8 at every opportunity give it away. You are in a brighter light that gets brighter as you "give it away". Focus on someone else and always say "I'm available".
