Spiritual House Cleaning – Lesson 6

 It’s Physically Clean – Now What?

Don’t you just love the feeling that comes with a physically clean house?
Everything is picked up, put away, the carpets are vacuumed, dishes are done, the tables are polished and gleaming, and the floors are shining.
    • A house like that calls me to beautify it, to add…
    • delicate lace doilies on the living room tables.
    • an open the Bible on the coffee table and place a rose across its pages.
    • beautifully arranged photos of the family.
    •  a vase of fresh cut flowers on the dining table.
    • a delicately scented candle in the washroom and to light it.
    • beautifully soft, background, worship music.
A spiritually clean house feels the same way – fresh, warm, and inviting.
The spiritually clean house calls to me in the same way a physically clean house does; to add something to it as well…
    • The Spirit of God
    • The Word of God
    • The Power & Protection of the Blood
    • The Peace of God
    • The Love of God
    • The Angels of God
    • Joy & Prayer
    • Music & Praise
    • The Beauty of Holiness
In the next few chapters we are going to be covering just how to add the “spiritual” beautiful things into your spiritually clean house.
A Word of Caution:
Listen to what Jesus says about a house that this totally cleaned out spiritually, he is referring here to a man who was demon possessed and was cleaned out…the principle is the same for all situations where demons are removed…
You are now at one of the most crucial points of spiritual house cleaning and actually the most spiritually dangerous.
What you decide to do right now will influence your whole life and that of your family.
I don’t want to create fear at this point but rather a healthy Biblical caution, just remember
Jesus is the one who is helping and strengthening you to accomplish this task.
Isa 41:13(KJV)
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Matt 12:43-45(KJV)
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

 

Let’s look at this situation closely…
A man has a demon in his physical house (his body) for one reason or another it has moved out. The man’s body is cleaned out, swept out and empty. But, the demon that just left really liked the ol’ place so he goes back and checks it out and finds that nobody has rented the place so he decides to move back in. Only this time he brings 7 friends who are worse than he is back to live with him. It has now become quite the party pad!
This is the danger of spiritual house cleaning. When we clean out all the bad “stuff” we have to replace it with something that is good and pure. Otherwise, we are actually just creating more space for additional demons to occupy and we’ll end up in worse shape than when we started.
Witches constantly get themselves into this problem. We had a number of practicing witches in our area who would get themselves into spiritual problems and then call me for help. I only went to “help” a couple of times because I was seeing this principle of demonic re-infestation happening over and over. These witches really didn’t want to be free, they wanted greater demonic power.
So now, we’ve cleaned out. We’ve burned, chucked, donated, & sold all the nasty things that were attracting demons.
Now what do we do?
Fill that empty space.
Fill the space with things that will actually repel demons.
We need to add to your home things that will actually beautify your home with holiness.
