There is really only one way to tell the differences associated with exorcisms and the word deliverance, perhaps if we pay close attention to what the bible states, we can get a much better idea between the two.
We know one sure thing. The demonic have no playground rules and even seem to be changing their tactics and awareness, truth is, it is said demons do not have form and are of void. They were never born in this world and have no real ties to this earth other then to destroy man kind.
Exorcism’s main goal is to deliver the victim from evil spirits. To cast out evil, demonic demons is part of the said exorcism. If this is accurate then,That means, there is actually deliverance when a said exorcism is practiced. The definitions establish the contrast in terms of source of deliverance, the methods and the end results. One way to find the meaning of a word is to look at the synonyms or antonyms. The synonym of exorcism is magic. The synonym of magicians is sorcerers.(Ex 7:11). Magicians are people who perform miracles or strange things by way of occult. Furthermore, they are always categorized with sorcerers, soothsayers, and astrologers (Dan1:20; 2:2, 27; 4:7, 9; 5:11). Consequently, to exorcise is to make magic or practice sorcery (witchcraft) or to deal with the devil and his agents. People who use amulets and fetishes are practicing exorcism.
What is Deliverance? Deliverance means to release as of imprisonment or bondage. what I have found is that the said deliverance would be after the said exorcism.Deliverance will be the end result of someone who has been exorcised or from whom demons have been cast out
Please do not get the idea that I happen to be some exorcist, because for the record I shall let you all know I am not. but do have some knowledge that pertains to the very subject.
Casting out demons was one of the signs that would follow them that believe (Mk 16:17). Those who are casting out demons use the name of Jesus to do so because it is in the name of Jesus that every knee bows and every tongue confesses that Jesus is Lord. This presupposes that everyone attempting to cast out demons must have Jesus as their Lord and savior. That does not mean that the person must go to our church or believe the way we do. Trying to box everyone casting out demons into our soapbox produces confusion as the one in Mark.9:38-39. Therefore, we use the name of Jesus and then command out the demon (Acts 16:18; Act 4:30). There is power in the name of Jesus. Whichever demon was driven, it was by way of mere command of the mouth in (Mk 9:2)
Casting out demons is a major theme in the New Testament but not exorcism. When deliverance takes place, there is physical initial evidence in restoration of the sick organ or person (Mt 8;16; 30-32; 9:32-33; 10:1; 12:22, 43-45; 15:22-28; 17:15-18; Mk 1;23-26; 3: 22-26; 5;6-20; 6:7; 7:25-30; 9:11-29;16:9, 17; Lk 4:33-35, 41; 8:2-3, 28-36; 9:41-42;11:14, 15-20; 16:16-18; 19:13-16).
A major characteristic of exorcism (magic) is enchantments-secrecy (Ex 8:7, 18). That is why the Catholic priests and others who exorcise will never show you what they are doing and how they do it. There are pastors and preachers,apostles and prophets who exorcise too by making people stand on some special pulpits or perform acts with great deal of secrecy. The things of God should have no secrecy, none at all!
Luke describes a scene in Acts where certain vagabond Jews who were exorcists took upon themselves, neglecting the name of Jesus to cast out demons. The evil spirits told them that they knew Jesus and knew Paul, but they did not know them. They beat them and tore all their clothes (Acts 19:13-20). They did that because they thought that casting out demons in the name of Jesus was a mere formula as with their practice. With spiritual things, there is no professionalism because we must only do it in the ability that God has granted us (I pet 4:11).
In And A.B.C. news article, written September 11th, It stated that.
The devil must be busier than ever in the new millennium.What many might consider an archaic and obscure rite has been front-page news this year.
Exorcism, the ancient rite of casting out Satan and his demons from the souls of the possessed, is thriving in America and was long before recent revelations that Mother Teresa underwent one and Pope John Paul II performed them.
