CAN DEMONS ENTER YOUR HOME?
The answer is YES!
Yes, evil spirits can enter your home. Angels have for many centuries entered our homes, so why therefore is it not possible for demons to enter our homes. For example, the archangel Gabriel entered the temple in Jerusalem to speak to the priest Zacharias about his future son, John the Baptist (Luke 1:7-23). He simply appeared inside the room where the priest was ministering.
The same angel also entered Mary’s home in order to announce that she would give birth to Yeshua Hammasiach (Luke 1:26-35). These angels come with blessings and good through a porthole of prayer and holiness of God. Evil spirits, or demons, are angels also. They are fallen angels. Therefore, evil spirits can also enter our homes, places of business, and any other place that they desire but what gives them the right to come in and cause havoc in our homes and lives?
Many people unwittingly own objects that are gateways for evil. These everyday “cursed objects” or even people’s sinful actions can open the doors for demons to wreak havoc in every area of your life and family.
Deuteronomy 23:14 says “For Adonai walks in the midst of your camp, to rescue you and to give your enemies over to you. Therefore your camp must be holy, so that He does not see anything indecent among you and turn away from you.”
This demonic activity may manifest through night terrors, sleep paralysis, poltergeists, or demons (or ghosts as most people call them). Or… it may be more subtle, bringing harm through physical ailments, emotional distress, or financial setbacks and continual illness amongst you and your family. But you don’t have to tolerate the presence of demons in your home! You can kick the devil out today!
The legal right for an evil spirit or demon to gain entry into your home may be caused by :
- Having ornaments or décor that is an abomination in God’s eyes.
- Persons who do sinful acts in the home such as watching tv programs of fornication, murder, playing of evil satanic games, or a person who commits sinful acts in the home such as alcohol abuse, sexual sins, satanic rituals.
- A person who was demonically possessed may have passed away in the home – the demon now has legal right to continue living there.
- A cursed item may have been bought and brought into the home.
- Witchcraft may have been planted in the home (hair, pieces of clothing, etc.)
- Any item which is against God’s Word is a problem for example witchcraft or satanic objects, witchcraft movies, superhero clothes or toys, graven images, etc.
If we obey God’s word and keep our dwelling place clean so Father God can come into our midst, you will be blessed in every way. But if we disobey God’s word and we give the enemy legal right, you will experience problems.
Exodus 20:4 – “Do not make for yourself a graven image[a], or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or on the earth below or in the water under the earth.”
Joshua 7:11 – “Israel has sinned. Yes, they have also transgressed My covenant, which I commanded them. Now they have even taken of the things under the ban of destruction. So they have also stolen and even deceived, and even put them among their own possessions...”
Joshua 24:23 – “Now therefore, get rid of the foreign gods that are in your midst, and incline your hearts to Adonai, God of Israel.”
Isaiah 30:22-23 – “22 You will defile your graven images overlaid with silver, and your metal images covered with gold. You will throw them away like a menstrual cloth. You will say, “Be gone!” 23 Then He will give you rain for your seed, which you will sow in the ground, and bread, the produce of the ground, will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will feed in wide-open pasture.”
So now it is clear and simple. This verse states that if you keep your territory clean Father God will bless you in abundance. If you by now have realised that you may have items in your home that gave the enemy legal right, you are ready to have your home sanctified. It is best to get someone who is not attached to sentimental items or who will not be bothered about the cost of certain items, to assist you in cleansing your home. Sometimes when you are emotionally attached to items or worried about the rand value of items, you can easily skip dangerous items and then still be with a spiritual bondage, even though you have gone through the whole process of cleansing your home.
There are many items and symbols that give the enemy legal right to your home, however, to learn more about the items and symbols join us at our CURSE TO BLESSING course.
Once you have removed all the items and symbols then these items should be burned and/or discarded (not given away or sold as they would then bring harm to others). This might seem extreme to some, but according to Deuteronomy 7:25 we should obey the Lord more than we desire money what these things represent.
Deuteronomy 7:25 “The carved images of their gods you are to burn with fire. You are not to covet the silver or gold on them or take it for yourself—or you could be snared by it, for it is an abomination to Adonai your God.”
If these things belong to members of your family that do not yet understand the evil involved, you should bind the power of satan that would come through the object and ask God to bring that family member into the knowledge of the light. However, if children are involved we must use the authority God has given us as parents and refuse to allow them to bring evil into the house, regardless of whether they understand or not. Of course, we should pray before attempting to rid their rooms of evil things, and if the children are old enough, we should speak to them about what we are doing. However, if they are not willing to part with these things, we must go ahead and see to it that the items are removed.
May your home be sanctified so that Yeshua’s presence can be felt in your home and your life.
