Spiritual House Cleaning Manual – Lesson 4

 Holy Water, Crucifixes & Snake Oil

Most people when they realize that they are being spiritually stalked get so fearful that they begin doing things that actually makes things worse instead of better.
Fear is one of the tools, used most by demons and the devil to gain entrance into your life
I’ll never forget the day I lost my fear of demons. The Lord allowed a very simple thing to happen in my life. I was allowed to actually see them.
Many here will judge this story and come up with many different explanations, but it is my experience.
I was in the hospital recovering from surgery and was to be released the next morning when I had my demonic visitation. I was off all pain medication by this time and was just settling in for my last nights stay. I was just about to close my eyes and try to get some sleep when two demons floated into my room. They were about 3 feet in length and were laughing and joking. They approached me and one began to dig its fingers into my upper arm. I instantly felt the pain, but felt absolutely no fear. In fact, the thought crossed my mind, “This is what everyone is so afraid of ?”, I raised myself up on one side and told the demons to get out. I didn’t use any authority in my voice at all; I was just disgusted with the whole situation. They didn’t leave, so I sat up straighter and told “the boys” with more authority that they weren’t allowed to come near my bed and drew boundaries around my bed and told them again to get out. It was like watching two teenagers; they shrugged their shoulders and floated out smirking to torment some other poor soul.
They sure didn’t produce the bone tingling shivers, dizziness and fear that seems to accompany most demonic visitations. If those two demons were a typical representation of most demonic visitations then the bone tingling shivers, dizziness and fear is self produced for sure.
Again – Fear is one of the tools, used most by demons and the devil to gain entrance into your life!
The tingling, shivers, dizziness and hair rising is only our human response to demons. It is our God given defense mechanism that cuts in to warn us that we are in spiritual danger! It doesn’t tell us how big the danger is. It just tells us that there is “something up – pay attention!”.
When dealing with demons the biggest obstacle you will have to fight is your own fear. Once your fear is conquered then you can proceed with caution.
I’ve heard some preachers and teachers so afraid of demons that they are hindered from helping the person in need of deliverance.
Fear can either work for you or against you.
A healthy fear of fire can keep you from being burned. It will produce watchfulness, a cautious attitude around fire and protect you and those you love from harm.
However, and unnatural fear of leaving your home can keep you bound up within the walls of your own home for years.
When it comes to demons you need a healthy fear so as not to allow demons to enter your home and be destroyed by them. You want a healthy respect; not a fearful cowering every time you get the “shivers”; but, a healthy watchfulness, a cautious attitude, and a willing attitude to rid yourself of them.
So, what works and what doesn’t work in getting rid of demons.
Since it was in the Bible that we found the origins of Satan and his demons, let’s look to the Bible to find out the remedy to rid ourselves of them. So, what does the Bible say about spiritual house cleaning? Let’s look at some real house cleaners…
Jehu – This man was anointed to clean up Israel. Big job!
II Ki 10:25-28(KJV) And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth.
And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal. And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them. And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day. Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.
Josiah- Here is the story of a young king. Only 8 years old when he started to reign in Jerusalem.
2 Chr 34:1-5(KJV) Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem one and thirty years. And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left. For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father: and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images. And they brake down the altars of Baalim in his presence; and the images, that were on high above them, he cut down; and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images, he brake in pieces, and made dust of them, and strowed it upon the graves of them that had sacrificed unto them. And he burnt the bones of the priests upon their altars, and cleansed Judah and Jerusalem.
The Early Church
Acts 19:18-19(KJV) And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.
Many may ask, “Why are you equating the worship of false gods to demons and devils?”
Plain and simple, because the Bible does!
Deut 32:16-17(KJV) They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
Ps 106:37-38(KJV) Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
1 Cor 10:20-21(KJV) But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
It is just that plain. It is just that simple.
The Bible is so clear on who we are to worship, hear the words of the Lord himself…
The Bible clearly teaches that if you are worshiping another god other than the Lord God Almighty of the Bible then you are worshiping devils.
Deut 5:6-10 (KJV) I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt have none other gods before me. 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: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
The first step then, in spiritual house cleaning is clearing out all the false religious icons, idols, and paraphernalia from your home.
You can not use big devils to cast out little devils. You have to rid yourself of all devils.
So what has to go first?
Anything that pertains to the worship of devils (other gods):
➢ Statues, idols, altars, cups, knives etc.
➢ Music used for worship
➢ Books, study material, pictures etc
➢ Jewelry, clothing, make-up i.e. Gothic that identifies you as a worshiper of devils. ➢ Everything associated with any religion out side of Judaism or Biblical Christianity i.e. Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Paganism, Witchcraft, Satanism etc.
Catholic Section
Catholics are in a very dangerous position in that they have mixed Christianity with pagan, idolatrous worship. This opens them up to many devils. Separating the paganism from the Christianity can be difficult but not impossible.
Let’s take this difficult case and use it for our model house for spiritual house cleaning.
We walk into the home of a typical Catholic family and find hanging over the doors or windows, crucifixes; rosary beads lay over the Bible, statues of the Saints line one wall.
First the crucifix was never a Christian symbol. True Bible believing Christians worship a risen Lord. Christ is no longer on the cross.
No where in the Bible are we instructed to place a wooden cross with a statue of Jesus nailed to it with tiny nails in our home.
But, we are commanded in the Old Testament not to make statues of anything for the purpose of worshiping them.
Lev 26:1(KJV) Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
If you have a crucifix in your home, remove it. It is actually a mockery of the crucifixion of the Lord; certain religious demons love it and will come for a visit and set up house keeping in your home.
Holy water – again there is no such thing mentioned in the Bible. It will not work, but it will attract demons
Religious pictures, icons – anything with the “immaculate heart” will only attract demons. This is a symbol of the god “Baal”.
Statues of the saints – many of the Catholic saints are only warmed over demonic pagan gods. They will attract many demons.
Madonna, mother & child – this is pure paganism and definitely has nothing to do with Biblical Christianity. Get the ol’ goddess Isis out of your home.
Rosary – is again a pagan rite with nothing to do with Biblical Christianity.
An excellent resource to help Catholics and all denominational Christians recognize and eliminate the paganism from their Christianity is Alexander Hyslop’s – The Two Babylons.
The bottom line is this:
If it is endorsed, practiced or encouraged in the Bible, and carries over from the Old Testament into the New Testament. Do it!
If it is absent from the 66 books of the Bible, if there is no commandment to do it, or if there is an actual commandment against it and it carries forward from the Old Testament into the New Testament…
Don’t do it! Avoid it like the plague!
You can not remove demons with demons you just end up with more demons. You must use Biblical commandments and principles to remove demons.
