Spiritual House Cleaning – Lesson 2

 How Do I know If I Have Demons In My House?

Dust particles, everyone has them, no one is exempt.
From the smallest cottage to the greatest palace, we all have dust in our homes. Cleaning companies all over the world make millions selling cleaning products to help you clean out the dust from your homes; everything from the lowly broom and dustpan, to high flouting’, expensive air filtration systems.
Demons are like dust particles they kind of float through the air looking for somewhere to land or better still someone to land on or in. They are spirits constantly looking for a home to make their own. The likelihood of having a few lurking around you and yours is very high.

What Attracts Demons?

Did you ever have a really nice black velvet dress or suit coat?
What happens to it?
It attracts every piece of lint and dust for miles!
Demons are much like dust particles –
There are certain objects (actual things) if you have them in your home that will attract demons, it’s like putting out the welcoming mat saying, “Demon’s Welcomed Here”.
There are certain practices (rituals etc.) that if you or someone in your family has participated in them will actually attract demons to your home and even to the person involved.
Now, this is where most people think spiritual house cleaning gets a little “ridicules” because people will ask, “You mean I have to get rid of the Ouija board in the closet? That is just plain stupid! How can an inanimate object be bringing demons into my home?”
My question is then, “Do you or do you not want to get the nasty little things out of your life?”
Many people ask, “Why should I even WANT to get rid of demons, what harm are they doing anyway?”
Let’s get something straight. These very real spiritual beings have just one goal in mind, they want to kill you! Pure and simple!
They want to steal from you and your family:
❖ the love and respect you have for yourself and for each other
❖ the peace, prosperity and rest that you enjoy in your home
❖ the literal joy of living, the cheerfulness of a “good morning” or the well being of a “good night, sleep well”
❖ your patience and endurance to keep on “keeping on” when life gets tough.
❖ the gentleness and compassion needed to deal with so many of life’s situations
❖ the goodness and moral excellence that makes an individual and a family strong
❖ the faith and belief that you have in yourself, each other and in God
❖ the God given authority in your home to protect yourself and those you love from physical, emotional or spiritual danger
❖ the humility that makes it easy to say things like; “I’m so sorry”, “I forgive you” or “I need you”.
❖ the self control that gives you the ability to say NO to habits that will destroy you and those you love.
They want you dead and in hell and they will do what ever it takes to get you there!
These demons want to destroy:
❖ Your determination to keep fighting
❖ Your hope that things will get better
❖ Your faith in a God who loves you to distraction.
❖ Your will to live
❖ YOU!
Listen to what Jesus Christ says about the devil.
John 10:10 (KJV) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Demons always multiply – opening the door to one is like the teenager who remarks to his closest friends, “My parents are going away this weekend, let’s have a party!”, and then tries to explain to his grieving parents how the house came to be trashed!
The teen invited his friends. Then they invited their friends and then those friends invited their friends, and so on, and so on, and so on, and before the unsuspecting teen knew what was happening; the house was filled with strangers who wanted to “Parrttee”.
Get the picture?
So how do you know if you have demons lurking in your home?
Go over the statements list on page 14 ( or see above).
Ask yourself this question as you read each statement… ““Do I feel as though there is “something” trying to steal this God given gift from me personally and from those I love?.”
If you answered “Yes” to any one of the statements, then demons just might be your problem.
