PLEASE NOTE: When we have tried to use the NIV bible to cast out demons, it has taken much longer to get rid of them. When we use the KJV or the Geneva 1599 version, they leave right away without any arguing or stalling. So we personally recommend using the King James Version or the 1599 Geneva version. Some of the more modern ones are missing some of the key pieces of scripture used to fight off demons. For example, in Colossians 1:14, the NIV says ” in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” But the KJV states: “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” We as believers need the blood of Jesus to help us defeat the works of darkness. We certainly don’t want it removed!
