There are a host of different manifestations of evil spirits and the Christian minister needs to be very sensitive to the Holy Spirit and to the person being ministered to. Listen carefully to the person as they reveal their areas of need. You will discern “the key” given by the person as they explain their problems. Be on guard against a lying spirit seeking to deceive or confuse by keeping you away from the real problem area.

Evil spirits can only be commanded to leave a person’s body or soul when that person wants to be set free. Otherwise we are only trying to violate their will.

Only when they are absolutely willing to renounce the demon spirit(s), does this then give us the authority in Jesus’ name to cast out those spirits. It is important to note that when an evil spirit is present in the life of a person that spirit will influence the person to do what the spirit is there to do.   For example, a lying spirit makes a person tell lies; an unclean spirit makes people do unclean things; a lustful spirit makes people lust after particular things; a deaf spirit makes people deaf, and so on.
