What is inner healing ministry? Inner healing ministry is just the practice of inviting Jesus to come in and heal our broken places. We ask the Holy Spirit to lead us through forgiveness and uncover any wrong thinking born out of sins by or against us, then we just let the Godhead (Father, Son & Holy Spirit) come and love us and heal all those places that have been broken. Sometimes He takes us back to certain memories, but not always, He can heal places in us that we don't even realize we need healing. Because there are so many that need healing, the Lord led me to write Freedom Fighters: the Essential handbook for living in the victory of the cross of Jesus Christ, as well as start the online discipleship program-the Freedom Fighters Training Grounds (now on YouTube!), so that all can learn to live free and set others free the way the Lord intended for every believer. As people use these two resources lives are being changed forever! Praise Jesus!, Every now and then someone will also need one on one ministry with myself or a member of my team. When my team and I facilitate a Freedom Session (Inner Healing & Deliverance), it is gentle, beautiful and Jesus filled. Psalm 147:3, Psalm 34:18
What is deliverance? Deliverance is the process of setting one free from the oppression of the enemy in their life. Jesus spent much of his earthly ministry delivering people from evil spirits and gave His followers a mandate to do the same. Deliverance and Inner Healing are two sides of the same coin. Two of my favorite scriptures regarding our role in deliverance are Matthew 10:8 and Mark 16:17.
Who should receive deliverance ministry? It is our belief that every Christian can benefit from deliverance ministry. The word says that satan roams around like a roaring lion seeking who he may devour. The word also says that the iniquities of our ancestors are passed down to us. Living in this world we are born with the effects of sin and then face the attacks of the enemy throughout our lives. We also inevitably open doors for the enemy to enter and affect our lives all on our own. 1 Peter 5:8, Exodus 20:5, Ecclesiastes 7:20, Romans 3:10, 1 John 1:8
How do I know if I have a demon problem? The symptoms listed below, when persistence and not easily overcome by your own will could indicate that you are in need of deliverance. The list is not exhaustive, and the symptoms listed do not always point to demonic oppression, but many, many times the root of these issues is demonic. When done correctly according to scripture, deliverance will never hurt and can only help. It is your right as a Christian to be free indeed. If you haven't been able to reach that freedom on your own accord since coming to Christ, I wholeheartedly believe that reading Freedom Fighters and watching the Free Training Grounds videos on my YouTube channel will change your life. If the Lord has led you here to read this, then Freedom Fighters is most likely the breakthrough you've been searching for! John 8:36, 2 Corinthians 3:17

But I thought Christians couldn't be possessed by demons? The word 'possessed' is misleading. Christians can 'have' demons, and we need to get rid of them. In Matthew Chapter 15 a woman approaches Jesus asking that He would please deliver her daughter from demons. He tells her that deliverance is not for the dogs (Gentiles) but for the children. (Jews) The ministry to the gentiles had not yet come. Today Christians are God's children, deliverance ministry is for God's children. The belief that Christians cannot have demons is not scriptural. It is like saying that when someone gets saved they are instantly healed of all sickness and disease and we know that is not the case. There is work to be done after salvation to claim the freedom that Jesus won for us on the cross. Deliverance is part of that freedom. This topic is discussed at length in the book!
Can a non believer receive deliverance ministry? In order to stay free after deliverance, we need to use the weapons of warfare and the authority that Christ provided for us by His sacrifice on the cross. If we do not fill the parts of ourselves and our lives where the enemy used to dwell with the power and fruit of the Holy Spirit, then the demons will literally go get more demons and come back and the person will be worse off than before we ministered to them. Luke 10:19, Ephesians 6:10-18, Matthew 12:43-45. That said, whether you identify as a Christian or not, the Father adores you and wants to heal the hurts life has caused. Freedom Fighters was written for everyone. Whether you are just hearing the name of Jesus for the first time, rejected Him your whole life, or have been serving him faithfully. It is a tool for all!
Does the Freedom Fighters Training Grounds cost money? First, no one will ever be turned away for lack of finances, if you need the book do not hesitate to contact us and we will take care of you by sending you a free e-copy, no questions asked! And the Freedom Fighters Training Grounds has now been moved to YouTube so it is all FREE! That said, I believe that giving to kingdom work is an outward act of faith that shows you are serious and committed to getting free. When you order the book, know that your money is well spent as it goes to supporting all the kingdom work of Emerald Ministries, including world missions and ministry to the most broken who otherwise would not be able to receive the help they need.
Do I need to be local? Not at all. People access the Freedom Fighters Training Grounds from all over the world and should you ever need one on one ministry, Skype will serve us just fine.
I'm ready! Where should I start? So glad you are taking the steps to embrace the full freedom of the cross of Jesus Christ! Welcome to Freedom Fighters!
What are your qualifications and how did you learn deliverance ministry? When I was baptized in the Holy Spirit in April of 2000 I knew almost immediately that I was being called into deliverance ministry. I remember telling my mom those very words, "Mom, I think the Lord is calling me to deliverance." I had suffered horrific nightmares as a child and saw things, evil things, that others could not see. I reacted with a dangerous fascination with the occult thinking that if I could understand it, then I wouldn't have to fear it anymore. That led to more bondage and demonic oppression in my own life. I have since been delivered of a spirit of fear, a spirit of jealousy and a spirit of control that I know of. There are probably more that have left as a result of me growing closer to Jesus everyday, (They don't like the Light! The closer we get to Jesus, the more apt they are to leave peaceably because we are naturally closing the doors where they gained entry!) but those are the ones that I know of by name for certain.
After my ministry trip to Brazil with Global Awakening where we were trained for two weeks in hands on healing & deliverance, I attended more Global Awakening deliverance training at their Empowered conference in Atlanta. I have attended months of supernatural ministry training with Awake Nations, and have completed the Bethel SOZO inner healing ministry training, both basic, advanced & Shabar ministry which is for more extreme cases such as Schizophrenia, DID, SRA and others. I will continue to seek out more training as the Lord leads, but after fifteen years of waiting for the doors to be opened to minister deliverance, it seems the flood gates have opened as I am getting messages and calls for help a couple of times a week consistently. Praise Jesus! He is using my life with Him to help set the captives free and since the Holy Spirit is the one doing the work I know that He will be strong where I am weak! My team and I are just the vessels from which the Holy Spirit works to set God's people free and we will continue to do everything we can to follow the mandate of Jesus regarding healing and deliverance.
