One of the most common questions among individuals today especially Christians is, should deliverance be public?
The scripture says in Mark 1:27: The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, What is this? A new teaching-and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him (NIV).
Every work of God must be displayed. In the book of Acts, Christ delivered many individuals and they glorified God after being delivered. The scripture did not say they were ashamed.
Acts 2:43- Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles (NIV).
No one should be ashamed after being delivered from demons; they should rejoice in the Lord. Deliverance should not be done in hiding. While Jesus was on the earth, He didn’t have a specific place that He healed, taught and delivered people that were in bondage. Remember, deliverance was a part of Jesus’s ministry and He was not in hiding, He did not go behind a closed door and keep a secret meeting. Do not worry about what others might say; deliverance gives God the glory and opens the eyes of those that are blind and are lacking in knowledge, spiritually speaking. Whenever a person receives deliverance, they should testify to the honour and the glory of God. In other words, expose the works of the enemy and extol the name of Jesus Christ.
