Sermon Illustrations

A woman approached a well-known preacher who had just returned from the mission field in a third world country where occult worship was wide-spread and he had seen a great deal of actual deliverances from demon possession in the power of the Holy Spirit. He had preached on that subject, telling stories of the things he had seen there. The woman proudly announced that she had recently attended another man’s ‘deliverance service’ and been delivered of a demon of overeating. The preacher smiled and said, ‘Miss, I want to warn you about something.

The first time you walk past the window of an ice cream parlor and see someone eating a hot fudge sundae, that demon is going to come right back’.
