The basics of Deliverance and Spiritual Warfare

Now to Jesus they brought a man, blind and dumb.
Not a physical ailment, but his senses were numb,
as a manifestation of the demon to whom he succumbed.
Jesus healed the man; yet the Pharisees in the crowd shunned,
claiming it was through Beelzebub's power,
the chief of the demons, who had him empowered.
A country that divides itself into groups will fall apart.
It is God's Spirit that gives me power to make the demons depart.

Anyone who is not for me is actually against. 
If you won't help me gather, 
all you are doing is scatter.
There is no such sin that cannot be forgiven.
Except about the Holy Spirit, no evil word or perversion.

You cannot break into a strong man's house,
and walk away with his belongings as a little mouse.
So, this should be your plan.
First, bind up the strongman,
in the name of Jesus, the Son of Man.
And then take away all you can.

But when you cast him out,
he goes away looking about.
Another home if he does not find,
he'll come back to the now - clean and tidy house he'd left behind.
But this time, seven more worse than him,
he'll bring along to make it more grim.
So, when you thought your deliverance was over,
it's time to begin again and take over.
That usually happens if you invite evil back in,
through the easiest mode of serious mortal sin.
So when you are sure it was all done,
the evil within you has just begun having fun.

(inspired by Matthew 12:22-32, 43-45)
