(At this point in life, I was actively studying the Bible and what it specifically had to say regarding deliverance ministry. Specifically, I was striving to better understand what exactly demon spirits were and how they were able to obtain "legal rights" to do the things which they did.
I also began taking repentance more seriously, in striving to turn away from a nigh lifetime's worth of accumulated sin)
I just awoke up from a dream where a demon spirit tried to mess with me. In my dream, I was rummaging around in a walk-in closet for some reason. Specifically, I recall at least going through a pile of dirty clothes. And suddenly, over off in a dark corner of this room, I felt the chilled presence of a demon spirit.
Calmly and sternly, I then bound the spirit in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ -- and ordered it to immediately and directly enter the pit of Hell -- never to return.
The evil presence left...and my dream slowly faded out until I woke up!

- Rummaging around the walk-in closet, I believe, representing my searching through my life for answers (as when someone searches through their closet to find certain things). Applied to deliverance, I was genuinely seeking out answers from the Lord in how to get free from spiritual bondage.
- An evil spirit's "legal rights" can range from being in possession of cursed objects (Deuteronomy 7:25-26) (Proverbs 26:2), to actively living in particular sin(s).
- All believing Christian's have the legal, Christ-given authority to cast out demons (see below chart).
