What are deliverance sessions?
You do not HAVE to go through a deliverance session at the Occupy Billions Retreat. Sign ups will be available and will be sent out via email and we will also send you more information so that you can make an informed decision.
Deliverance is needed if your life is hindered spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally (in some form) by powers of darkness. Deliverance is meant to get to the root of the things that hinder your personal relationship with the Father and address the root of them. You will receive deliverance in a group setting. Deliverance workers will minister specifically to the area(s) directed by the leader of the session as he/she calls out various areas of bondage as directed by Holy Spirit. It is the responsibility of the individual to press into the atmosphere and be open to receive.
Prior to the session, the session leader will pray and walk everyone through a series of confessions and renunciations to bring you into alignment with God’s will and out of agreement with the bondage of demonic influence.
