Spiritual house cleansing is a simply way to remove unwanted spiritual beings and their influences from a home, apartment, business, shop or other physical location. When done correctly a house cleansing also closes the spiritual door so they cannot return.
Ordination isn’t required to do a house cleansing. This is a basic spiritual activity that every believer has the authority to perform. However, if you have never performed a house cleansing you shouldn’t go it alone. Every minister should be equipped to perform and teach house cleansings.
As an ordained minister I have been called on many times to perform house cleansings in addition to cleansing my own home, church and counseling office. There have been times when a cleansing was needed immediately after a person left!
Ministers should recognize that involving the owner or resident in the process is critical. It is a great discipleship opportunity and they are the spiritual authority in the place they inhabit.
House cleansing is important and should be done on a regular basis. Here are four reasons a spiritual house cleansing is important;
- Spiritual beings are real. Many Christian’s don’t take the spiritual realm serious enough. It is easy to get caught up in what we can see, touch and understand, but the Bible is full of examples of angels, fallen angels and demons. The reality of these beings is not dependent on us believing it or not.
- We are in a spiritual war. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Eph. 6:12
- A house divided against itself cannot stand. This spiritual principle applies to kingdoms and to our homes. If the enemy can gain access to our homes they will cause dissention and work to divide and conquer. When we start fighting among ourselves the enemy has used an effective strategy and has gained the upper hand.
- We open spiritual doorways knowingly and unknowingly. Most of us would not open the front door of our home and yell out “demons are welcome,” but there are times when that is exactly what we do in the spiritual realm.
