DEMONS AND DEVILS - PART THIRTEEN

 

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 before God.

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, sayi8ng, Babylon 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 her.

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 screams. 

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.

Often, seemingly 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.
