Jesus Heals All Those Oppressed by the Devil
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. — ACTS 10:38
There was a twelve-year-old boy in one of the churches my wife and I pastored who virtually grew up in the church. After I left pastoring to go out on the evangelistic field, my wife and I went back to that church to hold a meeting.
A young man about eighteen years old came up in line during one of the services for prayer. He had just graduated from high school. I asked him what was wrong with him, because I usually asked people, “What am I praying for?” I wanted to find out whether to pray for healing or the baptism of the Holy Spirit, because I put everyone in the same line and called it a prayer line.
He said, “Brother Hagin, when you were the pastor here, I never had any problems. But after I got out of high school, I began to have epileptic seizures. I tried to enlist in the military, but they wouldn’t take me because of the epilepsy.” He wanted to be delivered.
That was before Jesus appeared to me in the vision and said, “Put one hand on one side of their body and one hand on the other side of their body. If the fire jumps from hand to hand, then there’s a demon in their body.” But the word of knowledge operated in me. I knew the minute I touched him that an evil spirit was causing the epilepsy. I cast the spirit out of him.
Now this young man was saved, filled with the Holy Ghost, and a member of the Assembly of God church. Did he have a devil in him? Yes. Was he demon-possessed? No. Was he delivered? Yes!
Confession: Jesus specializes in delivering people. He goes about doing good and healing all that are oppressed by the devil. Jesus heals me!
