ABOMINATIONS IN THE
HOUSE AND ON THE PERSON
"Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into
thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it
is a cursed thing." De.
7:26. If you bring a cursed object into your house, it will bring curses to the
inhabitants of the house and invite evil spirits and ghosts. It is an abomination to God and may bring
sicknesses, mishaps, nocturnal visitors and bondage. Get rid of the cursed objects and repent
Many Christians unwittingly allow cursed objects into the home or even
wear them. Cursed objects
include occult articles, hexagrams, satanic symbols, witchcraft books, idols,
dolls, Dungeons and Dragons or similar games on the computer, lucky charms, porno collections, Ouija
boards, I-Ching, occult books, smurf dolls, cabbage patch dolls, rocks,
paintings of dragons, altars, masonic lodge emblems, statues of Buddhas, statues
of the Virgin Mary, Kwan Yin, Shiva, good-luck charms, statues, altars and
pictures from a strange religion, frogs (Rev. 16:13), owls (Is. 13:21; De.
14:15,16), animals such as temple dogs,
shark, lizard, snake that are worshiped.
Revelation 16:13 says, “And I saw
three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out
of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.”
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means
hurt you.” Lk. 10:19.
The Bible describes Satan as a dragon.
Rev. 12:3, 4, etc. Evil spirits
are sometimes called birds: “And he cried mightily with a strong voice,
the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the
hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Rev. 18:2.
“So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping
things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel,
portrayed upon the wall about.” Eze.
8:10. God calls it an abomination to
Him. Verse 6. Any idol in your house is an abomination to
God and often, even a painting or carving of an object that can depict an evil
spirit will invite devils and nocturnal visitors. Many Christians travel to foreign countries
and bring home cursed objects as souvenirs.
Some go to Africa and bring back masks
that depict strange gods. They hang them
on the wall, thinking that the masks are decorative. Some bring home statues of the Chinese
good-luck god or kitchen god, or voodoo dolls or charms, and use them to
enhance their house or art collection.
They end up with more than they bargained for.
Whenever God allows
us to cleanse a house, the first thing we do is go through the premises and
throw out any cursed objects. People often
become sick because of them. A woman
from Vancouver, Canada, claimed that when she comes to Hawaii, she can sleep for 10 hours. At home, she could not sleep for even two
hours. As she was speaking, the Lord
gave me a vision of a painting with a mother of pearl dragon on a black velvet
background. It turned out that the woman
was originally from Korea
and two years previous had purchased such a painting on a visit back home. It hung right above her headboard. When she got rid of the painting, she could
sleep well. Demons had been harassing
In another case, a
fellow pastor was at home alone when he heard noises in his daughter's
room. He walked down the hallway and
stood in front of the closed door and could hear many voices, as if a party was
going on. He abruptly opened the door
and flipped the light switch. On his
daughter's bed were about fifty dolls staring at him. He grabbed the dolls, made a pile of them in
the front yard, poured gasoline on the pile and lighted a match. As the dolls burned, he could hear
I was teaching in
another town when a couple came up to me.
The husband looked very sick and was hunched over. I asked the wife if she knew when her husband
started to fall apart. She answered, “About
five years ago.” Then she looked at her
husband and said, “Daddy, that’s when you started to play Dungeons and Dragons
on your computer.” She related that he
became addicted to the game and would stay up until three in the morning
playing the game. When her husband
repented, I prayed to break all curses that came from that game and commanded
the spirits to leave. He was healed from
that moment on.
Curses objects can
include earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
Our workers were praying for a woman around twenty years of age and were
having no success in casting out devils.
Then, I noticed her earrings were a crescent moon with a star. She had on a necklace with a frog charm on it. When she took them off, threw them away and
repented for having them, the demons fled.
Cursed objects give demons the right to stay.
Years ago, one of our
female members was having trouble with her relationships with men and was
distressed. It turned out that she was a
collector of figurines and jewelry with Chinese gods depicted in jade and gold,
and also ceramic frogs, owls, and Chinese temple dogs. She brought these objects to church and
personally took a hammer to them, smashed them and threw them into the trash
bin. It was an expensive collection, but
she was desperate. Within a year, she
married a pastor and is still happily married.
That was over ten years ago. I’m
not advocating destroying anything in order to find a husband. I’m saying that it is not worth it to have
cursed objects in the house or around you.
I even had a friend
who began to have uninvited nocturnal visitors and strange happenings such as
locked doors suddenly opening, windows opening and closing and the sound of
breathing, odor and sense of someone’s breath on her neck when no one was
around. It turned out that she had just
built a rock wall around the property and the contractor had used rocks taken
from an Hawaiian temple.
innocent objects are manufactured by American Indians, Buddhists, Hindus such
as the Hare Krishnas, and followers of strange gods who “bless” these objects. Paintings may contain occult symbols in the
painting or in back. I have many more
stories about cursed objects in the house and on people that bring sicknesses
and problems. Paintings of the Virgin Mary,
Jesus, a crucifix with Jesus hanging on it (a plain cross is okay), prayer
beads and other “Christian” relics and articles do not belong in the
house. “Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any
thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in
the waters beneath the earth. . . .”
Deu. 5:8. “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit
and in truth.” Jn. 4:24.
If you are not sure
about an object, pray about it. However,
it is better to be safe than sorry.
Throw it away. Don’t keep them in
the garage or storage room and don’t “bless” them. Blessing the objects will not take away
curses or rid your house of demons. It
is still disobedience to God.
Very often, a person
cannot be delivered or healed because there are things in the house that hold
him in bondage. If circumstances permit,
I instruct people that come in for deliverance to rid their homes of any cursed
objects. Otherwise, demons have a right
to oppress and cannot be kicked out.
Our members have
cleansed many a “haunted house” and often find that once the house is cleansed
of cursed objects, the ghosts and/or evil spirits leave.
