Demonic Groupings & Root Spirits

The following categories of Demonic Spirits are a detailed listing of Demonic Groupings along with the potential Root Spirits. These groupings are often revealed in deliverance, but this is by no means all of them, nor does it mean this is how all Demons are grouped.  For the purposes of doing self-deliverance this is the exact list that Pastor Nate works from when performing deliverance.

Before you begin doing self-deliverance I strongly suggest you keep in mind that Deliverance is not about saying as many cool words as possible, in the right sequence. In my first-hand experience that isn’t how Deliverance works. Deliverance, very simply, comes from God as a result of the free gift of grace as we received through the payment made for us on the Cross by Jesus Christ.  So I hope the above doesn’t confuse or discourage any of you, but just keep in mind the main components of Deliverance are the following:

  1. Salvation – have you accepted Christ as your personal savior and Lord? (click here to take action)
  2. Forgiveness – Are you carrying around anger and resentment towards someone else? If yes, then take action…get on your knees, confess it to Christ and ask to be forgiven. (Yes, Again!)   
  3. Repentance – True repentance is changing the way you think and act.  This is a sign of true repentance. Remember, God knows anyway, so get downright RAW in your honesty with him.
  4. Prayer – Are you diligently seeking God in prayer? Are you praying in the name of Jesus? (I once had a dream-like word of knowledge and the voice said, “Do all things in the name of Jesus”)
  5. Praise and Worship – Good praise music goes a long long way in deliverance.
  6. Elders, Other Christians – If you can get a mature Christian to join you in the deliverance then this will gives you the ability to call in the below prayer…which is huge! Pastor Nate uses this often and it works.

“Where two or more are gathered together in my name, there I am also in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20

If you believe you have completed the above 6 steps to the absolute best of your ability then you are now ready to attempt self-deliverance. Again, I always recommend that you have someone else with you who is a Christian and whatever you do, do not do deliverance when driving!

Instructions: Command in Jesus name the strongman (underlined) to come out first and demand they bring the root spirit (bullet point) out with him. DO EVERYTHING IN THE NAME OF JESUS…ALWAYS! Be sure and check the blog section for Video & Audio containing real Deliverance Sessions.

        We will be glad to help you…fill out this super short form on the contact us page link. Here is the link:

        • Sexual Sins Prayer –

        *By the way, if your sinning stop NOW! As an example, Living with someone and fornicating with them out of wedlock would constitute sinning. Remember, I am not saying yourdoing this…I am using this as an example ONLY!! I am saying making sure your not doing this! So be sure and don’t get offended….unless you just want to and that is fine. I still love you anyway!! Praise Jesus!!

        • Prayer Against Spirit Spouse –

        • Prayer Against Spirit Spouse II –

        • Door Closing Prayer –

        *Keep up with any physical manifestations you have when praying these prayers. If you get a lot of coughing, yawning or throwing up then keep doing the last 4 prayers until it stops.

        Ok, so next I want you to join us in our online deliverance room we have one every Monday – saturday at 11am eastern standard time UTC.

        Here is the link. This is a good room and a good way to fellowship with the brethren if your not interested in investing in your own deliverance (said with Love)

        I recommend getting a copy of our 120 page deliverance manual and reading it –

        Ok, I hope this finds you a little more encouraged. I love you as a sister in Christ and maybe I will meet you if you follow through with the above.

  2. Noor

    I feel delivered … thank you and god bless you

    1. Nate Thompson

      Amen sister Noor! I suspect you coughed out a lot of spirits when doing the prayers. THANK YOU JESUS! The prayers on the website are powerful and many people do get started on the road to deliverance by doing them. I wish I could get more people, who visit the website, to download or simply use off the website all the amazing deliverance and healing prayers that are on there.

      Thanks for your comment and support!

      Love in Christ,

      Brother Nate

      PS- Keep doing the prayers as the Holy Spirit leads you. The enemy will most likely counter attack….deliverance is absolutely a process and NOT a one time event.

    Hi. What is the strongman in New Age areas?

    1. Nate Thompson


      I had a demon once tell me… Now bear in mind this demon was manifesting through the person) that his name was “Lucifer”…. but who knows and demons lie. That is what they do. The good news is that it doesn’t really matter….Jesus name is above every demon, evil spirit and word ever spoken! (see Ephesians 1:21) Cast it out either way, but be sure and repent first and get rid of all unforgiveness. It will make a huge difference and don’t spend too much time chasing down names of demons. Its just another way they get you all confused and caught up in fear and paranoia. Just blast them out in the name of Jesus! Assuming your saved, you have power and authority over them!! Let me know if I can help or feel free to join the online prayer group.

  4. Ann

    I was crying out to God about some things…like how lonely unloved and misunderstood I feel….and I gagged up some blood? Is this normal? I haven’t gagged up blood in Years (and those were just nosebleeds back then) and I kinda freaked out :0

  5. shanaya sykes

    I’m so grateful that you shared this blue print because it’s needed today! I’ve wrestled with a spirit that was bothering me and the Holy Spirit revealed to me it was a torment demon and I rebuked it in Jesus Name and was free! As a proud Christian even we need to be on guard for our own deliverance! I’m so glad there is true freedom in Jesus Christ! It’s free and with this tool someone will be able to identify what it is and cast it out!

    1. Nate Thompson

      Thanks Sister Shanaya!!! I am glad you found the resources helpful! Love in Christ…. Brother Nate

    I see many hearings weekly, I spend time with the LORD but not like I did. I believe a spirit of unbelief got in? I have great belief but feel cold hearted now. I have been overeating and I think it is attached to a previous self mutilating spirit? I used to cut before Christ, He saved me from smoking cigarettes and about 5 months later I began overeating. then I began binge eating and purging. I no longer eat until I hurt myself anymore, and I do not throw up. but I still am being attacked hard when it comes to fasting. I have prayed for a willing spirit. I believe Father called me to fast for 40 days and I did not complete it and I really want to. not to earn His love, but because I want to. I have gained so much weight now. I do not want to fast to lose weight but that is a plus. I really do not like the weight gain, I know He can use me no matter what size I am and I have repented of this and asked for forgiveness because I was blocking Him. but I need help with self control or something. I need breakthrough, help in changing my eating habits again. I plan to do the deliverance prayer I read above. do you have a specific suggestion for my situation? I have gained 50 pounds in about 5 months. I want to complete the 40 day water fast and conquer my flesh and my mind. the problem is not that I get hungry, its mental. I want the finished product and instant results I think. I miss being completely in LOVE with Him, First Love, and I eat to feel better which I know is a lie. Its as if I am not in control but I know that I am. any advice?

    1. Nate Thompson

      Sherri….thanks for sharing your story and I have lots of advice on just about everything you shared. I will shorten my advice to this for right now. You need to be in our online prayer group family every single day you can. The group contains the severely demonized to people who have marriage issues and everything in between. You will fit in perfectly and be loved by others seeking Jesus. There are many powerful deliverances and healings that take place almost daily in the group, but it is a process so commitment is essential. Here is the link. Once I receive your information I will send you an email will get you started in the group and on your way to healing. Remember, most everything you mentioned is demonic and the ONLY answer is Jesus. We will help you achieve intimacy with Jesus. Here is the link:


      Love in Christ,

    Brother Nate,
    I have been electronically stalked for ~12 years. I am saved and holy ghost-filled, and have spoken with pastors/prophets who have prayed with me regarding this matter. The good news is that I have received a consistent Word from the Lord during these prayers. However, the stalking has not ceased. What do you suggest?

    1. Nate Thompson

      Hey Veera…I am sorry your having a hard time. Let me start by saying that most people who believe they are being electronically stalked do not like my answer. My response and knowledge of their problem is not what they want to hear. So with that said I did want to respond to you, tell you I love you and that I will add you to the intercessory prayer list. However, if you want to take the discussion deeper and get a real answer then I would like to invite you to our group. I could type an answer for days upon days and simply do not have the resources and time to do that. I appreciate you reaching out to me and here is the link to get invited to the group for prayer, deliverance, fellowship with the brethren etc….
