All believers have the authority to pray in the name of Jesus for the deliverance of those who are oppressed by evil. The ministry of deliverance can assume different forms varying from counselling, teaching, listening to anointed worship music and in certain circumstances, commanding an evil spirit in Jesus’ name to depart. Jesus announced his kingdom by the casting out of demons and healing the sick. The casting out of demons by Jesus would have been interpreted as his authority over evil and the devil.
Christ came to inaugurate God’s kingdom stating ‘if I cast out devils by the finger of God then the kingdom of God is among you'(Luke 11:20).
