Why Deliverance Sometimes Fails: Why does deliverance sometimes fail? This is, in essence, the same question raised by Jesus first disciples. When these disciples were unable to cast out a spirit of epilepsy, they were puzzled and asked Jesus the reason for their failure.

Jesus gave a multi-part answer which leads us to take into account the petitioners faith, the deliverance ministers capability, the spiritual qualifications that must be met, the strength of the spirit confronted and the strategy of warfare employed.

Obstacles to Deliverance: In particular, there are myths, misunderstandings and misinformation concerning the ministry of deliverance. The first battleground is in the minds of men, where Satan has sown questions, doubts and fears that become hindrances to involvement in this valid, biblical ministry.

Those who want an answer should be given an answer. Ignorance, prejudice and fear are hurdles that some sincere Christians must get over before they are willing to become involved in spiritual warfare. Before one can bring himself to obedience to deal with the devil and demons, certain obstacles must be overcome in ones mind.
