Our Family’s Testimony Concerning Halloween

As a young child, Halloween was my favorite time of the year. I loved it even more than Christmas. But things changed when I became a believer. Something then just didn’t feel right about the holiday anymore.

Our family tried to keep it more upbeat, by not allowing our kids to wear costumes that were evil or scary looking. I tried carving an angel into our pumpkin, instead of the traditional scary face, and I played Christian music that spoke of fighting off witches, or demons, and proclaimed the glory of Christ instead of satan, while the trick-or-treaters came to our door for candy.

But nothing worked. Those feelings of ‘something is not right’, became stronger.

It also became harder for our family to afford to celebrate the holiday. Every year costumes had to be purchased or made, and the amounts of candy needed to make it through the night was growing more and more every year. Apparently, our suburban neighborhood was becoming known for having the best hand outs, for kids were bussed to our area in huge yellow school buses, and dropped off at one end of the street, and then picked up again at the end of the street, after the hoards had swarmed their way through the yards and doors of the neighboring homes. These kids rarely spoke a word of English, (most spoke Spanish,) and hearing a thank you when given the candy was just as rare. If you ran out of the candy, you would get egged, or even had your yard or car vandalized.

In our history lessons, (we homeschooled,) we were beginning to learn about the history of Halloween, and how it all began. (http://www.lasttrumpetministries.org/tracts/tract10.html , http://www.demonbuster.com/halloween.html , and what the bible says about it: http://www.preparingforeternity.com/hallween.htm for an idea of some of the things we learned.) It was horrible to realize that some of our own Irish ancestors took part in such Baal worship where torture, horror, and death ruled. A group would go from house to house, demanding a person to be sacrificed on that night, and if a person was given over to be tortured, raped, and killed, (usually a slave girl,) then a lighted gourd would be given to them, to put in front of their home, as a sign to others that they had already given one of their humans over to the ceremony. If they refused to hand over anyone, then a hex was painted on their home in blood, which meant that someone in that home was marked for death and would be killed sometime that year. At the ceremony, they had a cauldron of boiling hot apples and cider. If you wanted to try and save yourself from the death that would follow, you could try to grab an apple with your teeth. But your hands would be tied behind your back, and few were able to get that apple. Those that did were scarred for life, for the boiling cider burned the face off to the point that you were almost unrecognizable. They also had The Wicker Man, where humans were put inside this huge wicker basket/prison that was formed into the shape of a man, and when it was filled with humans, it was set on fire, and the people inside of it were burned alive. This was definitely a part of our family’s history that we would rather renounce and turn away from, rather than remember every year!

Well, finally one year, we decided to not celebrate it anymore.

That first year was hard for our kids, for they were still quite young and they felt left out. We gave them bags of their favorite candy, but it just wasn’t the same. We spent the night at a friend’s house out in the country, where they did not have trick-or-treaters coming up to their door for candy. It did help us, and was a godsend to us, for their family had many children that helped to take our kids minds off of missing the celebration.

Mean time, someone (or several people,) egged and toilet papered our house and yard.

The following year we went to the movies instead, missing out from the most of the activities.

And we cleaned up more rotten eggs from our window screens, car, and home.

The year after that, we stayed home, in the hopes of stopping whom ever it was from egging our home again. We did manage to scare off the group of tweens doing this, but it was unpleasant to have to keep off all the lights in the house for the evening, in the hopes that no trick-or-treaters would come to our door. A few tried, but soon left when there was no answer.

Our car was deeply keyed instead, several days later.

Thankfully, we soon moved out into the country, we found that there were no trick-or-treaters out here. The local small shops downtown would have a night for everyone to go to and get their treat instead.

The first Halloween out at our new place, was quite memorable to my children. They had such peace and joy that night, it almost shone off of their faces. I had to ask them why this was so, for it confused me. They then asked me in astonishment, “Mom! Can’t you SEE them? The angels are EVERYWHERE! Can’t you hear their singing?” Well, sadly, I could not. But it was enough for me to see their own contentment on such a night, for I had been concerned that we would have trouble during that time. (This was during the worst of what we were going through with our cursed land, and right before I learned about cleaning the land.) That night, thanks to all the angels and to our God Jesus Christ the messiah for sending them, we had no problems at all.

The following year, we learned more lessons about Halloween.

When we would go out shopping, we would come across Halloween decorations that were filled with demons. We could feel them try to reach out and attack us. We found that we could not cast them out, (for they were often there through legal rights given to them by the owner of the store,) but we were able to bind them up in the name of Jesus, so that they would be forced to leave us alone. Still though, it became a stressful time in general to be out shopping, so we tried to curtail the number of outings we make during the season. For us, it has become more of a day and a season of mourning instead, especially when we see those around us look upon the holiday as nothing but a bit of harmless fun.

We found that a build up of spiritual spiders and their webs, demonic bats, rats, owls, and black ravens occurred in our home, the closer the days came to Halloween. We would catch glimpses of them out of the corner of our eyes, and think it was just our imagination. They increased in number, until Halloween, when they all decided to attack us in unison. We got very little sleep that night, and spent most of it casting out all the demons that had infiltrated our home. The following year, (and ever since then,) we went through the house and wherever we sensed something may be hiding, we said positive pieces of scripture out loud, and then cast the demons out in Jesus name. That Halloween, (and every one since then,) we had very little spiritual oppression. Whatever we did sense, was small and easy to cast out.

So, I write to you, so that you may hear our family’s testimony concerning Halloween, and to be forthright in fighting off those roaming evil spirits that might try to attack you in your own home. Don’t wait for Halloween night to do this. Begin now! Go from room to room reciting a positive scripture (psalm 91 is our favorite for this, – even pieces of it does the job,) and casting out any hidden demons in Jesus name. Cover your land and home, and all that reside in it, with the blood of Jesus. This is always a good spiritual practice to exercise at any time of the year. But for Halloween and the Christian, it is essential!

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:22.)

“When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of time, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” (Deuteronomy 18:9-12.)

“Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them; I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 19:31.)

“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.” (Acts 19:18-19.)

“Learn not the way of the heathen . . . for the customs of the people are vain,” (Jeremiah 10:2-3).

“And what concord hath Christ with Belial or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate,” (II Corinthians 6:15-17).

How To Remove Demonic Doorways And Demons From Your Home

Many of those who contact me privately, request help in being set free from demons. Yet I also know, that for every one person who actually makes the request, there may be ten more out there who wonder if they should or not, but never do. The Lord has instructed me to share what our family has learned so far in being set free from demons, in the hope that it might serve to help liberate others from their evil influence as well.

Our family has found that there are three man areas of our life that we could remove demons and their doorways from.

1. Our land is the equivalent of the outer temple courtyard. This was covered in this post:
https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/how-to-get-rid-of-land-demons-and-keep-them-out/

2. The next area is our home, which is equivalent to the inner temple courtyard. This is the area I will be covering in this post.

3. The third area is our physical bodies, which is the equivalent of the temple of God itself. This I hope to cover in a future post.

*

YOUR INNER TEMPLE COURTYARD:

Where you live, is the equivalent to the Old Testament inner courtyard of the temple of God, and as such, needs to be kept free from idols and cursed things. Many believers unknowingly have things in their home, that are doorways for demons to enter in. What you bring into your home (or even your car or work space,) can have a HUGE impact upon your life! Being cursed is a serious matter. Bringing in a cursed object causes you and those around it to be cursed. These objects can open up spiritual doorways for demons to enter in and attack you and your family. Satan likes to use these cursed items as his ‘legal right’ to be there to wreck havoc in your home. Sometimes these problems manifest themselves by an increase in family or marital arguments, or illnesses, or even poverty. Many Christians are not living up to their potential in Christ, because they do not realize that they have cursed items in their home. (“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6) At the very least, idols can make your life miserable here on earth, and cause your testimony for Jesus Christ to not be as strong as it could be. Getting rid of these cursed objects can help free you from satan’s oppression. These items have been the cause of oppression before for Christians, and made deliverance almost impossible, until these cursed and unclean items were removed from the home.

Not all items on this list will cause problems for everyone all of the time, but all items in this list has caused problems to a believer at one time or another. Some deliverance ministries have stated that one must not have any form of a doll in their home, while others find that the problems are found in specific kinds. Sometimes the item in question can pose a problem depending on where it was made or purchased. For example, a cute little ceramic statue of an owl made by your mom may not open up any demonic doorways, but one bought in a store run by witches would definitely be a problem. Some people have found that simply wearing pierced earrings is a problem, while others have found that it is the act of piercing the ears itself that poses the problem. With tattoos, it is the act of having the skin engraved that usually creates the opening. However if the design engraved upon the skin is satanic, (such as skull and crossbones or dragons,) it creates a continually open doorway for demons to attack those who are visually exposed to it. Some of these items may be somewhat dated; look for the equivalent in today’s world, and see if they might be causing you trouble instead. (For example, cabbage patch dolls aren’t so popular any more, but you might be able to find something else out there that is similar to them.) We have found that idols from other religions are the most tainted items of all. Sooner or later, they usually end up posing a problem to the owner or to those around it.

ALWAYS SEEK THE LORD on ALL deliverance issues! This is by no means a complete list of items that are suspect! If something is giving you doubt, then ask the Holy Spirit within you. The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Yeshua Ha Mashiach is ever merciful to lead us and guide us unto Him!

I realize this is a long (though always incomplete) list, and will probably raise the hackles of some when they read this, for there are things on this list that many people enjoy and are unwilling to give up. I know this, because I felt the same way when I first found out about some of these things being cursed. But then the Lord asked me a simple question. “Well, how many open doorways for demons would you like to have in your house?” After thinking about this for several days, I finally went ahead and gave up the items the Lord was asking me to get rid of. Freedom and a lightness of heart, as well as having way less problems in our lives was our reward.

POSSIBLE TAINTED OR CURSED ITEMS:

Playing cards – The basic deck of playing cards (some have reported problems with these – especially when used for gambling,) Dark Pokemon cards, Digimon, Yugio, Magic: The Gathering, tarot cards.

Posters of stars: For example, Marilyn Monroe and other movie stars, rock bands, athletes, etc. (They can help form unholy soul ties to the person on the poster. The owner of the poster can start to suffer the same problems that the star suffered from, such as drugs, unhealthy relationships, broken marriages, etc.)

Board games and other forms of games: Mah-Jhonng, Jumanji, Dungeons and dragons games, (and other role or fantasy games,) Ouija boards, (that one is a HUGE problem item for believers to have!)

Video games: Some of the worst ones are – Doom, Dante’s Inferno, Shiu Megami Tensei: Nocturne, Tecmo’s Deception, Guitar Hero III, Deep Down, Devil May Cry series, The Ninja Kids, The Binding of Issac, Castlevania: Lord of Shadow, Diablo, Requeim: Avenging Angel, Rune Quest.

Books: Twilight series books and other vampire books, Harry Potter books, book of Mormon and their literature, satanic bible, Morals and Dogma book by Albert Pike, other Masonic or illuminati texts, books and tapes on any false Christian doctrines, Jehovah’s Witness literature, Taoist literature, literature from cults, any books that combine biblical Christianity with modern day psychiatry, magic books, new age occult books, witchcraft books, and the writings of C. S. Lewis.

Some secular music: Some popular music has words and symbols that are illuminati based. Others promote un-Christian morals or values, and some are even openly satanic. Watching or listening to this music can cause an open doorway for demons to attack. So make sure what you listen to is clean as well. Even better, listen to Christian music. (Make sure the Christian music is not in name only! Some Christian bands are not of Him and are working under cover for satan instead. Their lyrics and their album covers give clues to this.)

T.V. Shows, movies, and computer web pages: Mystic Knights & their action figures, Inuyasha, Avatar, the new TV show ‘Coven’, The Lion the witch and the wardrobe movie, The Passion of the Christ, I Am Legend, (that movie was a HUGE problem for our family! It literally filled our whole house with demons.) Carrie, Harry Potter films, Avatar, vampire movies, Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Blair Witch Project, (and other witch craft movies and TV shows,) The Evil Dead, The Exorcist, movies about the dead, demons, satan, or hell, Omen, Stephen King’s It, Fallen, Rosemary’s Baby, The Unborn, The Convent, The Rite, The Gate, The Ninth Gate, Paranormal Activity, Pumpkinhead, Case 39, Amityville Horror, Silent Hill, Sinister, Child’s Play, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Splice, other horror movies, and any program or movie that positively features a false religion in it. Also be cautious where you go while surfing the web. The computer screen can become a portal for evil to go through, depending on what is being viewed. Our family has had problems with pictures of demons, aliens, false gods, reading false doctrine, and any of the symbols listed here. We have also had trouble with the face photos of certain criminals, as well as facial photos of those who practice Santeria. Often times as a believer, you can sense if what you are viewing is o.k. or not. You will have a sense of unease, irritability, dirt, disgust, or even out right fear after seeing what you are seeing. (When I view a web site with a picture of a demon or alien on it, I get a sudden shock of fear go right through my chest.) If this is sensed, stop, close the offending pictures, ask for forgiveness for looking upon it, and then cast out any demons that may have gone through the doorway, and then close the doorway in the name of Jesus. (For an example of this, see: https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/a-demon-came-through-the-computer-screen/ )

Holiday items and holidays: Christmas items – including tree shaped candy bars, decorated Christmas trees, Valentine’s & hearts, cupid, Easter items, Easter egg candies, Halloween decorations, Halloween toys, Easter rabbits, elves, santa, and reindeer, etc.. These holidays are from the Mithra religion, (and other pagan religions,) and are not from biblical Christianity.

New Age items or teachings: serpent coils, drums, rainbows, bells, some angel statues, sundials, gazing globes, (now often seen in lawn ornaments,) unicorns, crystals purchased from new age stores, birthstone jewelry, new age visualization items, witchcraft items, palmistry, tea leaf readings, yoga, astrology items, homeopathy, bach flower remedies, orgone boxes, good luck charms, horoscopes, Carl Jung’s analysis and writings, hypnosis, emptying the mind meditation, acupuncture, rabbits foot.

Toys: He-man, She-ra, Smurfs, care bears, cabbage patch dolls, the joker character from Batman, teenage mutant ninja turtles, dolls – especially cabbage patch dolls, troll dolls, some Barbie dolls, Brat dolls, toy voodoo dolls, and puppets, big bird from the Sesame Street program (other characters may be good to avoid from that show as well,) teletubbies, gremlins, rainbow brite, sprites, elves, punk rock dolls, go bots.

Items and symbols from Eastern religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, Shintoism, Confucianism, east Asian Buddhism, African traditional religions, voodoo, dragons, spiritism, mediums or channeling spirits, shiatsu, mind control – Silva or other, Anything Buddhist – especially their statues, pictures, or Incense, (often made in the Buddhist temples by their priests,) Yin & yang – tai chi symbols, foo dogs, Guan Yin statues, African statues, katchina dolls, Taoism art, mala beads, I Ching, Kung fu, Tai Chi Chuan, Hsing I, Pa Kua, Aikido, eastern meditation systems, religious items given to you by a guru, tikkis, African jujus, Chais, incense made from the Hare Krishna cult dedicated to Hindu gods, Mughal prayer rugs, Vishnu, Shiva, Rama and etc., karma items or literature, reincarnation, ascended masters, avatars, mandalas.

Items and symbols from Western religions: wiccan, paganism, druidry, church of satan, anything Islamic, Baha’i faith, Unitarian Universalism, Humanism, (we have found some darwinism texts to be problematic,) Jehovah’s witnesses, Christian Science, Judaism – anything the pharacees added to the religion outside the bible, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), Scientology, Indian art, Native American art work, dream catchers, Native American carved walking sticks, Obeah canes, totem poles or other carved wood art, Hawaiian gods or goddesses, Catholic statuaries such as crucifixes (that show Tammuz dying,) and statues of Mary, (who is actually Mithra’s Semeramis, the queen of heaven,) Catholic prayer cards given out at funerals to remember the dead, pictures of Catholic saints, rosaries – even the links and pieces of rosaries, Catholic missals, Catholic bibles, Catholic hymnals, Catholic prayer books, Marian apparition memorabilia, hex sign (or also called the Pennsylvania Dutch sign,) Italian horn jewelry, SS runes, skull and crossbones, winged horse, pentagrams, (inverted or upright,) hexagrams, hexagram in a circle, statue of liberty memorabilia, the Louvre memorabilia, pyramids, Ankh, Mexican sun art, moon art, flamingos, alligators, leviathan, goats head, family altar for worship of dead ancestors, anything given to you by a witch, witches masks, protectors from the evil eye, Kabala items, 9 candled menorahs, hand of Fatima, Easter Island statues, shaman items, any Greek or Roman gods, fairies, totem poles.

Symbols on items that can make the item cursed: Marijuana leafs, disguised 666, (this looks almost Celtic in nature. It is the logo of the New King James Bible.) 666 or FFF, the V sign made with the hands, the V sign but with the two fingers held together, the horns sign – made with the pinky and index finger held up, with the rest of the fingers held down to the palm. The capitol letter A in a circle with the middle bar extended to the sides of the circle, inverted cross, the labrys ax, (double sided curved blades,) pontifical cross of Lucifer, peace sign or witches foot, swastika, unicursive hexagram, paisley designs, horseshoes, charms, wishbones, four leaf clovers, the evil eye or one eyed symbols, Jewish Hamsa hand, zodiac signs, some tulip art work, six petal rosettes, twelve petal rosettes, Rosicrucian items, eight pointed star, goose with blue ribbon around its neck, square and compass, symbols or icons from false religions and secret societies, (or logos from other items listed on this page.) As a side note, be also aware that not all pictures of Jesus are of Him. (In the ancient ruins of Greece and Rome, many carvings that are thought to be of Jesus, are actually of the god Mithra.) Again, some are manipulated and used by satan to gain entrance into your heart and home. (http://www.demonbuster.com/idols.html – Demonic jesus face from promise keepers meeting)

Drugs: Hard liquor, (they don’t call it ‘spirits’ for nothing!,) marijuana, heroin, cocaine, peyote, other illegal drugs, some prescription drugs such as pain killers and drugs taken for depression or mood disorders, or any other man made poison. (Again, check with God. For us we found that some antibiotics such as cephalexin and narcotic pain killers such as codeine were cursed and giving us problems.)

Secret society items: Illuminati items and symbols, Masonic items, Shriner items, De Molay items, Eastern Star items, Elk lodge items, IOOF items, (odd fellows,) Job’s Daughter’s items, Klu Klux Klan items, square and compass, Eastern Star items, rainbow girls items, Illuminati items, Job’s Daughters items, all-seeing third eye, lambskin apron – actual apron or symbol, owls.

False teaching items: Scientology, life stream, Napoleon Hill’s teachings, Robert Schuller’s teachings, Roy Master’s teachings, Rick Warren’s teachings, any teachings that combine God’s Word with pop psychology. (http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/ is a good place to check for current new age false teaching authors.)

Other items: Candles – especially colored ones. Emergency candles and tea lights we have seen less oppression from. (This was a hard one for me to give up, for I love my candles! But it did stop the demons from attacking my kids whenever they were lit. Olive oil candles are a good substitute.) Frogs, Nike label, bells, items autographed by someone famous, Fleur–de–Lis, the distelfink goldfinch bird, cornucopias, caduceus the winged wand of mercury (doctor’s symbol,) magic 8 ball, Sara Coventry jewelry (which started out as ‘Sara’s coven jewelry’,) and her eye glass frames or other items, Pythagorean items, fez hats, mardi gras items, aliens, some UFO photos, masks – especially ones used in rituals or ceremonies, Alienware computers – the ones with the face of an alien lit up on its cover, (covering up the alien face made the demons stop coming out,) hard or soft pornography, and sometimes even an item of clothing you used to wear before you became a believer.

HOW TO REMOVE THESE DEMONIC DOORWAYS AND DEMONS:

BIND UP ALL DEMONS IN JESUS NAME FIRST!

GATHER UP THE IDOLS AND CURSED ITEMS into one pile or area. (Acts 19:19, KJV, states “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.”) We do this in our fireplace or outdoor fire pit. (I have heard of some doing this in their oven if it is just a small amount that needs to be burned. We did not use this method however, for we had way too much to get rid of!) If any items survived the fire, then take these remains and break them up and smash them, or bend them to make them unusable and unrecognizable. If you do not have the facilities to burn the items, then put the items in a container, label them “GARBAGE” in big bold letters, and throw them out in the trash. Let your garbage company incinerate and crush them for you. Put this trash outside your home while waiting for the truck to come and collect it. (See: https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2012/12/25/all-the-christmas-stuff/ for example of this.)

There have been reports of those who have been entangled with Satanism or witchcraft, that have struggled greatly to do this and get rid of their cursed items. If this is the case, you may ask someone else to get rid of the items for you. Getting the home rid of the items is what is most important, not you having to be the one to do it! Burn them and destroy the items immediately, or keep those items somewhere else if you can, until the garbage man comes to pick it up.

CAST OUT THE DEMONS and forbid them or their replacements from troubling you again. Close all demonic doorways in the name of Jesus.

BLESS YOUR HOME
You may use the same scripture for cleansing the land (See: https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/how-to-get-rid-of-land-demons-and-keep-them-out/ ) We use extra virgin olive oil and reciting scriptures through out the house. Psalm 91 is great for this!
Anoint the corners of the room and the doors and windows with blessed olive oil, and wherever else the Holy Spirit leads you to anoint. Just a small dab of oil is enough.

When we first blessed our land and home, we also had to use grape juice as a symbol of Jesus blood and the forgiveness of sins. Olive oil alone did not work. This may have been because we had practicing Satanists who were actively worshiping satan as they trespassed on our property. After the initial blessing with the grape juice, (and after the police chased off the trespassing Satanists,) we encountered no more problems in our home with simply using blessed olive oil. (We still use both however, when blessing the land, just in case.) We do this blessing at least once a year on Passover. (If the Lord tells us to do it more than this, we do.) We use kosher grape juice, (Kedem brand,) and not Welch’s grape juice, as this sometimes gets filtered through gelatin pork skins, and pork is considered unclean.

ON BLESSING THE OLIVE OIL:
It has been cautioned by others in deliverance ministries to avoid having a priest or even a pastor bless the oil for you, for this could result in having the spirit of priest-craft enter into the oil and cause it to be unclean. 1 Peter 2:9 KJV states “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” So, as a believer, YOU are a royal priest, and as such, YOU can bless the oil yourself. To bless the oil, you proclaim in the name of Jesus that it is blessed and that it is set aside to be used as holy anointing oil. Here is one example of this: http://support.josephprince.org/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/118/22/h-where-can-i-get-anointing-oil-or-can-i-prepare-my-own-if-so-how-do-i-go-about-doing-it-what-words-of-prayer-should-i-pray-over-the-olive-oil-to-bless-it

CLEANSE YOUR HOME BY READING SCRIPTURE OUT LOUD IN IT while walking through the rooms of your home. Psalm 91 was used by the Old Testament priests to dispel any evil spirits from the temple courts. It still works just as well for this today in homes!

PLEASE NOTE: When we have tried to use the NIV bible to cast out demons, it has taken much longer to get rid of them. When we use the KJV or the Geneva 1599 version, they leave right away without any arguing or stalling. So we personally recommend using the King James Version or the 1599 Geneva version. Some of the more modern ones are missing some of the key pieces of scripture used to fight off demons. For example, in Colossians 1:14, the NIV says ” in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” But the KJV states: “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” We as believers need the blood of Jesus to help us defeat the works of darkness. We certainly don’t want it removed!

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES IS A SWORD that is used to fight off the demons. The more a particular piece of scripture fits into the situation, the better and more quickly the demon is fought off. For example, if the demon of insomnia is attacking you, one can say out loud, that “the Lord grants sleep to those he loves.” Psalm 127:2. This spiritual sword causes the demons GREAT pain, and they crumple into a ball at your feet when it is spoken against them! The bigger the demon, the more scripture may be needed. But it immobilizes them! We have seen this happen to them time and time again!

PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS over you, your family, your home, your job, your work, and your land.

PRAISE HIM! This helps to get rid of the really stubborn demons that don’t want to leave. Praising Him during troubles is an especially powerful weapon against the demons. They can’t stand it so they leave!

EXPECT OPPOSITION when trying to do this! Satan would just LOVE to stop you from discovering the idolatrous stuff in your house, and stop you from getting rid of it. Our family had all sorts of little things that needed immediate attention pop up whenever we tried to sort through the house items to see if anything questionable was there.

MAINTAINING DELIVERANCE:

MANY DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES CLAIM THAT YOU SHOULD BLESS ANY NEW ITEM THAT GOES INTO YOUR HOME. (Note: Our family does not do this with every little thing brought in. We have found that if the item is not a cursed item, then it becomes blessed because our house is blessed.) Some deliverance ministries have also suggested to anoint all items brought into the home with blessed olive oil, in an effort to cleanse all evil from it. Personally, our family has found that this can be a dangerous thing to do when it comes to anointing actual idols. (https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2012/02/16/three-idol-encased-demons/) It also has not worked with other items that were cursed. For example, I purchased a new pillow from a store, and found it was giving me rashes and itchiness that made sleep difficult. We examined the pillow (my usual brand,) for any physical reasons for the reactions, but found nothing. Finally in prayer, the Lord told me that it had been previously purchased by a New Age Wiccan, and because it had been in her home for a few days, it was now considered unclean for me as a believer. Anointing this pillow with the blessed olive oil made no difference at all. The itchiness and rashes remained. When I exchanged it at the store for another one, (which the Lord told me to do,) the new one posed no problems at all. The itchiness and rashes were gone within 24 hours. I couldn’t just bless and keep the item in question. I had to remove it from my home.

Deut. 7:25-26 KJV states “The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therin: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God. 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.”

BE CAUTIOUS OF WHO YOU WELCOME INTO YOUR HOME! “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Amos 3:3. 2 Corinthians 6:17 ESV states”Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you”, and of course 2 Corinthians 6:14 ESV states “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” Also, 1 Timothy 5:22 KJV states “Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.”

BE CAUTIOUS OF WHAT ITEMS YOU BRING INTO YOUR HOME, especially if they are second hand items. Make sure they are not cursed! Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you if you are uncertain about an item. Often times, just that feeling of uncertainty is a sign in itself that the item is in question and should not be let into your home. If the item is o.k., then the Lord will give you peace concerning it.

ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT to help you discern what else needs to be done. Keep praying! He is on your side and can see what we can not. He will guide you!

I ask that the Lord would bless you and keep you, and guide you into your freedom which is available to us in Christ Jesus! I leave you with one of my favorite pieces of scripture. It is 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.”

“Blood On The Doorposts” by William and Sharon Shnoebelen (It is a Chick Publication.) Though I do not agree with him on everything, (he’s a KJV only person,) I highly recommend this book! It is the best one available at this time out on the market. ISBN: 0-937958-43-3

“Protecting Your Home From Spiritual Darkness”, by Chuck D. Pierce, Rebecca Wagner Systema. ISBN: 0-8307-3637-9
