What does the process of

‘Cleaning Up Your Act’ entail?  

Key topics include...

  1. Sin:  Sure, we often repent of blatant sins, but have we really examined those offenses, to not only repent but to change?

  1. Forgiveness:  If there is hurt in a memory in which you say you’ve ‘forgiven’, there is more there, and wounding could be part of it.

  2. Wounds, Trauma and Brokenness:  Places that we have not allowed Jesus to come in and heal.  Wounds give place for the enemy to keep us in bondage... we can see it everywhere... “Why is the Christian neighbor a recluse since his divorce 20 years ago?  Why does my sister have panic attacks ever since that accident she had... she is the biggest intercessor I know. These both have had all kinds of prayer but the problems remain!” --this guide will help expose those wounds so we can let Jesus in to heal them.

  1. Curses, Negative Expectations and Inner Vows: When we think of a ‘curse’ we envision a crooked fingered witch in a dark alley and a person that probably got what they had com’in because they shouldn’tve been there in the first place.  We need to consider what the Bible has to say about the power of the tongue --- especially our own.  Learning to expose beliefs or judgements contrary to the Word of God; whether spoken or held within, will dramatically change your life!

  1. Generational Sin:  If it’s not a curse that we can find.... why are we still having these negative manifestations that oppose the fruit of the Spirit?  The unrepentant sins of our forefathers might just be part of why we can’t we seem to break free.

  1. Soul Ties:  Physical, lust, close, work environment or covenant relationships.

  1. Strongholds and the Deliverance thereof

With more given, more is required.  As we grow in the anointing, we find ourselves needing more of Him and less of us.  Sin becomes more evident and suddenly we begin to notice glaring defects in our character, bad habits and other ‘issues’ that don’t align with the Word of God.  Despite repenting and honestly trying to change it seems we fall back into that pit... confused... “What is wrong?  I’m standing on the Word of God, and yet it remains?!”  The enemy tries to get us to doubt the faithfulness of God and a battle ensues as we try to serve God and deal with our bad selves in a seeming

merry-go-round of disappointing repetition.

So what’s the blockage?  We know God IS Faithful...

Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habits..

Watch your habits; they become character.

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Did You Know...

That Praise & Worship is a powerful weapon for those seeking deliverance from oppression? 

Psalm 149:6-9

"Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute vengeance on the nations And punishment on the peoples, To bind their kings with chains And their nobles with fetters of iron, To execute on them the judgment written; This is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise the LORD!"


Before attempting deliverance, spend time Praising and Worshipping the Lord.  It will not only provide an atmosphere where the enemy is a sore minority, but it will help you tune into the Holy Spirit so you can clearly hear/see what the Father is doing, and therefore, follow suit!

    5. The Process of Deliverance

  1. Thanks to those that ‘testify’...

  2. “Thank you soooo sooooooo much :) I agree with everything you just said. Just now, I actually threw out ALL my music cds which consisted of heavy metal and rap. I was praying to the Lord, and He told me in my Spirit to do so. For a while He has been telling me to get rid of all that filth. Today I finally stopped making excuses and did it!!!! AMEN!!!!!”


Author ‘SG’, has written a wonderful God-led roadmap called:  “Resource and Field Study Guide - for Christian Soldiers and New Recruits” (link right), to help the body of Christ ready their wedding garments. 

I have personally benefitted from this guided roadmap of action that instills an ongoing concern for examination and growth that will follow me the rest of my life. 

If I have anything to add to the list it would be the Bible Promise Series which will help you reprogram.  As an example, ‘SG’ uses ‘Bitterness’ as a negative root that needs axed, and in using the Word of God as your sword.... an antonym for ‘bitterness’ is ‘contentment’.  So creating a playlist from the Bible Promise Series that includes ‘contentment’, and feeding on that word will help loosen up the soil as you battle.
