You're Supposed to be Free
by Pastor John Hamel
“And when Jesus went forth to land, there met him out of the
city a certain man, which had demons long time, and ware no clothes,
neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he cried
out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to
do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me
not.… And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion:
because many demons were entered into him…. And there was there an
herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he
would allow them to enter into them. And he allowed them.
“Then went the demons out of the man, and entered into the
swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and
were choked. When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled,
and went and told it in the city and in the country. Then they went out to
see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the demons
were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right
mind: and they were afraid.” (Luke 8:27-35)
I’d like to ask you a question.
Are you bound by drugs or
alcohol? Possibly perverted behavior, lying, stealing or any of a
thousand different types of wrong, compulsive human behaviors bind you.
The Bible reveals that any time a human being is driven
compulsively to do something against their will that they are being
dominated and controlled by demon spirits.
If demon spirits are dominating you today, you do not have to be
afraid and you do not have to be ashamed. The Holy Spirit had someone
place this Bible teaching in your hand today because God loves you and wants to set you free.
Jesus can set you free today in the same way that He set the
demon-possessed man free that you just read about.
thirty years ago demon spirits that pressed me into
drug and alcohol addiction bound me. I heard a Preacher on television
teaching, much like I am teaching you today. He told me that God was
not mad at me just because I was a drug addict. He told me that Jesus
loved me and that He would set me free if only I would ask.
“Jesus, if what that man said is true and if You really do love me and will
set me free, I will serve You for the rest of my life.”
After praying that prayer, I felt a giant hand
being laid on my head three times, yet I was in my home all alone.
The third time it came upon me, I felt the power of God go down through my
body to the tips of my fingers and toes. To make a long story short,
I woke up NEARLY THREE DAYS LATER! I did not dream, change positions,
eat or drink during this time.
I realized immediately that I was free from drugs and alcohol.
I have remained that way for over thirty years. God did what I asked
and I am now doing what I promised, serving Him for the rest of my life.
What Jesus did for me, He wants to do for
If you’re bound just say these words, “Jesus, I choose You as my Liberator. Forgive me for my
sins. Please set me free like You set Pastor John free and I, too,
will serve You with the rest of my life. Satan, I reject you in Jesus’ Name.” (Romans 10:13)
Now hold steady and get ready for the biggest change and the
greatest thrills of your life.
God heard you and will respond to you
