Peter Horrobin has assembled a comprehensive collection of point-by-point itemized articles concerning charismatic deliverance ministries. Popular with New Apostolic Reformation churches, Horrobin's teaching outlines many symptoms of demonic possession, demonic 'entry points', and discussion of demonic activity as recorded in the Bible. A chapter dealing with the spiritual cleansing of land, buildings and organizations is also included.

International Director of Ellel Ministries. Healing Through Deliverance. Originally published as two separate volumes, this best selling book on the subject of deliverance ministry forwarded by Derek Prince has now been combined, updated and revised. Peter Horrobin has more than twenty years experience teaching about healing and ministering to those in need.

However, there is also much in this book that should be of great concern to Bible-believing Christians. Far from being a Biblical basis' Peter Horrobin's book is really a polemic against those who oppose what I shall refer to as 'Ellel Grange Theology'. EGT has all the characteristics of a framework interpretation, that is a system of interpretation that takes as its foundation a selection of texts that appear to support the writer's presuppositions

Formerly two volumes, Healing through Deliverance lays out the biblical foundation for the ministry of healing and deliverance and offers keys for bringing about healing through deliverance. Jesus's ministry included not only preaching and teaching, points out British Bible teacher Peter J. Horrobin, but fully one-third of Christ's recorded healings involved deliverance. In this groundbreaking work, Horrobin urges believers to exercise the authority of Jesus in this often-ignored dimension.

Jesus' ministry included not only preaching and teaching, points out British Bible teacher Peter Horrobin, but fully one third of Christ's recorded healings involved deliverance. In a groundbreaking two-volume series, Horrobin urges believers to pay attention to this often-ignored dimension. Through in-depth Scripture teaching, he demonstrates persuasively that the charge Jesus gave his disciples to heal the sick and cast out demons was a vital part of the Great Commission for the whole church for all time. Healing through Deliverance, Volume 1 lays out the biblical basis for the ministry of healing and deliverance. Horrobin analyzes in detail the ministry of Jesus and the early church, as recording in the gospels and Acts, and answers many difficult questions. Healing through Deliverance, Volume 2 shows how people can be become affected by demonic powers and offers keys for bringing about healing through deliverance. Then Horrobin provides practical guidelines for building and conducting a healing and deliverance ministry through the local church and in ministry and counseling centers. With these two works, believers will be equipped to respond to all of God's call-to preach the gospel, heal the sick, and cast out demons.

Read this book if you want the gates of hell opened up in your life.

Horobin argues that while not all sickness is demonic, there are far more demonically induced symptoms than the church would readily admit. This is cerainly true, as a conversation with almost any evangeloical pastor quickly reveals that while there is ready admission that a link between demons and sickness is taught in the New testament, the notion that any particular sickness may have a demonic element is simply ignored. This book is valuable in that it presents both biblical and emperical evidence that demonic influences still are felt in the 21st century. And the author often includes insights which are helpful to pastors and others charged with the spiritual care. My major criticism of the book is that it fails to deal systematicaqlly with how to identify a demonic element in physical or psychological illnesses. But perhaps the promised second volume will remedy that defect. Dr. Larry Richards, Center for the Study of Biblical Demonology

The condition of this book I received is beyond my expection. It is still as new with minor defects.

Best book on deliverance you will find
Zicelik
great book, delivered right, exactly as they said. I would deal with them again.
Tholmeena
This is a solid work that stands well in both Biblical scholarship and everyday practicality. It may challenge some readers because it does not pander to convenience, and it's the sort of book that draws a person back for more than one reading. This is a welcome addition to the literature dealing with deliverance ministry, for both lay people and clergy.

There are many statements in this book with which it is difficult to find fault. "The Bible is the divinely inspired authority in matters of faith, doctrine and conduct and the basis for teaching." [12]. Deliverance from demons was an important part of the ministry of Jesus (e.g. Acts 10:38) and as his followers it is also part of ours.

However, there is also much in this book that should be of great concern to Bible-believing Christians. Far from being a Biblical basis' Peter Horrobin's [Henceforth PH] book is really a polemic against those who oppose what I shall refer to as 'Ellel Grange Theology' [henceforth 'EGT'].

EGT has all the characteristics of a framework interpretation, that is a system of interpretation that takes as its foundation a selection of texts that appear to support the writer's presuppositions. From these scriptures a conceptual framework is constructed through which all other passages of Scripture are viewed. PH refers to this kind of interpretation [223], but fails to recognise that this is what he himself has produced.

Framework interpretations have their strengths and weaknesses. Their greatest strength is that they are difficult to refute, because their acceptance produces a complete interpretative system for the adherent. The survival of the framework systems of Arminianism and Calvinism over hundreds of years bear testimony to this. They do, however, have two fatal flaws. First, they are inherently unbiblical because they fail to deal fairly with the whole of Scripture. Secondly, they are only as strong as those scriptures on which the framework is based. Once these are targeted and examined the whole system collapses like a pack of cards.

For this reason there is no need for me to attempt to refute every claim made by PH - which would require a volume larger than the original. Instead I will simply look at the 'linch-pin' scriptures on which his framework is based. But before I do so, I should point out some of the claims made by PH about those who do not accept EGT.

1) Those who do not believe that Christians can be demonised (the central tenet of EGT) have never been involved in a deliverance ministry [193, 224, 226].

2) They have a distorted and unbalanced theology [224].

3) They are pharisaical [229].

4) They are themselves demonised and led to oppose the work of Ellel Ministries by the demonic [304-305].

A Daughter of Abraham (Luke 13:10-17) / Children of Abraham (John 8:31-47)
One of the fundamental errors in this book is the assumption [193-194, 254-258] that because a man or woman is a Jew or called 'a son/daughter of Abraham' then he, she or they are therefore Believers. This assumption is unwarranted, for although there was a godly remnant in Israel, e.g. Zechariah & Elizabeth (Luke 1:5-25); Mary & Joseph (Matt.1:18:25); Simeon (Luke 2:25-35), and Anna (2:36-38), the majority were unsaved. Jesus' ministry was primarily to the 'Lost sheep' of Israel (Matt.15:24).

Paul uses the phrase 'Children of Abraham' in a distinctive and technical sense, referring to Believers (Romans 4:16-17; Gal.3:6-7). Other New Testament (NT) writers use it in a non-technical sense, referring to the physical descendants of Abraham (e.g. Luke 19:9; Acts 13:26). PH imports the Pauline usage into the Gospels to support his thesis that Jesus only delivered Believers.(3) It is interesting to note that if he were consistent in doing this then the Rich man in the story of Lazarus must also have been a Believer (see Luke 16:24, 30).

The account of the crippled woman healed on the Sabbath (Luke 13:10-17) is used by PH as proof positive that a Believer can be demonised [193] (though he later contradicts himself [299]). Evangelical commentators take a somewhat different view.

The healing is not referred to as an exorcism, nor is demon-possession implied.

What is probably in view is not a case of possession itself, but one of affliction ultimately sourced in Satanic influence (as illness was often understood).

Leon Morris argues that:

"There is no indication that the woman believed in Jesus, or indeed that she knew him at all. Jesus himself took the initiative. He pronounced her cured and she was made straight. Jesus did not usually lay hands on people when performing exorcisms. Perhaps Luke means the spirit (v.11) was already cast out (v.12) and that Jesus now completed the cure by laying on of hands."

PH also finds evidence for EGT in John 8:31-47 because John refers to the crowd as those 'who had believed' in Jesus (v.31). This crowd then refer to themselves as 'Abraham's children' (v.39). But, as Carson points out,(7) 'those who believed in him', refers to those of 'fickle faith' (cf. John 6:60-69) who do not abide in Jesus (John 15). Once it is accepted that 'Children of Abraham' does not refer to Believers, but to Jews, the teeth of PH's argument are drawn.

All of Jesus' Exorcisms In the Gospels are of Believers
It is very difficult to accept PH's argument that all of Jesus' exorcisms were performed on believers. By carefully reading his theology into the text, this is what PH attempts to do. There is no evidence that the man in the synagogue in Capernaum (Mark 1:21-38; Luke 4:31-37) was a believer [142-143]. The fact that Jesus rebuked the fever in Matt. 8:14-17 does not imply that it was demonic [144-145].(8) Nor are we told that Peter's mother-in-law was a Believer. The same can be said of all the other examples that PH cites. The demoniac living in the tombs (Matt. 8:28-34; Mark 5:1-20; Luke 8:26-39) [164-178] could have known nothing about Jesus.

Seven Spirits Worse Than The First. (Matt. 12:43-45; Luke 11:24-26) [243-247]
PH repeatedly claims that it is wrong to cast demons out of an unbeliever (213, 257, 306]. The main evidence he presents for this is found in the above passage. Here Jesus is contrasting his exorcisms with those of the Jewish exorcists. Those carried out by the latter will result in failure because the person delivered is left empty. Jesus' exorcisms resulted in the 'filling' of the person involved because they came to know him as their Saviour - or at least they had that opportunity. As Evans points out "...only if the cure comes through the power of Jesus will it last, for the purpose of the cure is not the cure itself, but the purpose is to bring the person into the Kingdom."(9) (emphasis mine). In this case, as in all others in the Gospels, the purpose of the exorcism is evangelistic, and therefore for unbelievers. It is not a warning not to deliver an unbeliever, nor evidence that a Christian can receive sevenfold demons [251-252], for by definition he is already filled. Jesus's point in telling this parable is that there is no such thing as neutrality.(10)

Binding The Strong Man (Matt. 12:29; Mark 3:27; Luke 11:21-22) [235-237]
This is a superb example of eisogesis - reading your theology into a text. We are told that the 'Strong Man' is the controlling demon in a person, and that the 'weapons' / 'possessions' are the smaller demons under his control [235].

Possessed or Demonised?
PH argues that Christians cannot be possessed, but they can be demonised, but his argument falls down when it becomes clear that all Biblical exorcisms are of unbelievers. The key to possession is the element of control, not ownership. The metaphor of the house being 'possessed' in the sense of ownership but not control makes no sense because a house is inanimate - and can never be controlled in the way that a living being can. This is a good example of trying to confuse the issue by careful selection of the wrong metaphor [297].

Much more could be written, but there is no real purpose. The essential elements of EGT have been exposed. Will this warning be heeded? To those who hold to EGT I have already demonstrated sufficient evidence of my 'demon possession' (see above). Although he claims to be an upholder of the authority of Scripture Peter Horrobin has instead, and quite blatantly, made experience rather than Scripture the test of orthodoxy [299, 306].

I can do no better to end than to quote PH giving advice that he has, sadly, failed to follow:

"...so watch out for Satan's attempts to blow you off course with Scriptures quoted out of context and without the anointing of the Spirit of God." [121]
This book is a great eye-opener for the majority of the "Christians" out there. Most people don't understand why some prayers seem to go unanswered, but this book helps readers understand the spiritual realms in great detail. This book is a must read for any Christian who wants to see others (and even themseleves) be healed!!
