TEMPLES OF THE ENEMY.
Evil spirits love to be worshiped.
It gives them power and in some cases these spirits will build
strongholds in the person’s body by putting a spiritual altar or temple
there. The apostle Paul says that our
body is the temple of God.
Satan counterfeits God by building temples of worship to devils in a
person, weird as it may seem. At times
as we are praying to cast out devils from a person, we have had visions of an
altar or a temple to a strange god.
In one case I handled, a woman from New
York took a college class in Hawaiiana or Hawaiian Studies and the
professor required that the students spend a night (up to twelve midnight, or
so) in a Hawaiian heiau, or temple enclosure.
The students and teacher brought along video cameras and tape recorders
in an attempt to record Hawaiian ghosts or spirits haunting or dwelling in the
heiau. The woman saw and heard nothing,
but remembered lying upon and falling sound asleep on a flat slab of rock.
Soon thereafter, the woman began suffering from physical
ailments of mysterious origins that her doctors could not medically
explain. During a deliverance session
over her, the Holy Spirit showed me that Hawaiian spirits had built a Hawaiian
temple (heiau) in her body (spiritually, of course), with a flat slab of
rock. Ancient Hawaiian religion
practiced human sacrifice to Ku, their god (akua) of war. When I demanded that they give their names,
they gave me Hawaiian names. We prayed
to destroy the altar and temple and tear down the walls of stone. The demons went berserk and screamed
obscenities as we smashed the walls and other items in the temple. Meanwhile, a foul odor of rotting flesh
filled the room. They left.
In another case, a Japanese woman was having spiritual
problems involving her husband and family.
As we prayed for her, I saw a Shinto temple and an altar with a wooden
name plates containing names written in Japanese. It looked like a well-known Shinto temple
located in our city. When we inquired,
she informed us that her mother had dedicated her to the Shinto gods and as was
the custom, had her Japanese name written on a wooden stick and placed on the
altar in the temple. We prayed to
destroy the Shinto temple and altar, and burn the wooden stick with her name on
it. We also broke every vow and
dedication made to Shinto gods by her mother.
The demons left.
We experienced the same phenomenon with a number of former
Buddhists or where the family were Buddhists and dedicated their children to
Buddhist deities. We sometimes see
spiritual temples, prayer altars and boxes, scrolls, incense burners, bowls and
other Buddhist paraphernalia in their body.
When we pray to destroy these things, demons scream and come out. In one such case, a woman claimed that anger
and hatred demons were tormenting her.
As we prayed, the woman assumed a meditation posture called the lotus
position. The Holy Spirit revealed that
the woman had practiced Buddhism at one time in her life and an altar and
“sacred scroll” existed in her body, in the spirit realm. As we destroyed the altar and scroll, the
demons screamed, “No! No!” They left.
We have come across spiritual temples to the Chinese goddess
of mercy, Kwan Yin, and to the patron god of Chinese restaurants, Kwan Dai Gung,
and other so-called deities from strange religions.
As said previously, demons love to be worshiped. They have an amazing ability to weave myths
and legends which encourage foolish humans to worship demons. Greek, Roman, Chinese, Japanese, and just
about every culture have its own religion that worships demons. Evil spirits masquerade as benevolent deities
that bring good fortune or protect their worshipers. Truth be told, they lead to sickness and
Whether or not temples and altars can be spiritually built
in the human body may be a matter of conjecture. All we know is that the Holy Spirit often
shows us temples, altars, scrolls and other items used to worship demon-gods
and evil spirits scream and come out as we pray to destroy any temple, altar or
object of worship to these demos. At the
very least, if and when the Holy Spirit gives you a vision of a temple or
object of worship to strange gods, you will be able to discern or have the
knowledge to proceed to destroy it.
