An evil spirit in your house can wreak havoc in your life.
Evil spirits can move objects, hide objects, make noises, and even manifest visually.
They also can touch you and cause you to have pain in your body.
They can afflict you with sickness and disease.
They can wreak all kinds of havoc in your dreams.
They can manifest as voices in your mind or even audible voices.
They are very real and a legitimate force to reckon with.
They rule the air and can influence your thoughts, which in turn, allows them to manipulate your emotions.
They can oppress you and depress you.
And they can even possess you and completely control your life.
They are very real entities.
They are spirits looking to express themselves through human bodies.
They are evil and their intent is to destroy you.
When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden he gave the dominion of this world to Satan and his kingdom of darkness. They have been ruling this world ever since. The earth is their domain and they have a legal right to be here. They will take possession of your home if they want it. They will transfer from one generation to the next. They are powerful and you have no power against them outside of Jesus Christ.
I have dealt with several spirits ruling people’s homes over the years. I once visited one of my sisters and in the middle of the night I woke up and sensed a spirit of sickness in her house which tried to come on me. When I got the next morning everyone in the house was sick except for me and my wife. I recently moved into another house and it had a spirit residing in it. It took me a couple of days to get rid of it (see my article “Are houses and buildings really haunted” for a more detailed account of this incident). I can tell you many experiences in this area.
So how do you get rid of them?
You will have to understand a few spiritual truths before you can make them leave. First you will have to accept Jesus as your Savior in order for you to be free from Satan’s dominion over your life. Then you will have to renew your mind to the two redemptive truths of what took place on the cross.
First of all, at the cross Jesus forgave you by bearing your sin and redeeming you from all sin. Therefore God will never count your sins against you nor will he ever condemn you for sin. Jesus frees you from all condemnation. This is important because these spirits greatest weapon against you is to condemn you.
Second of all, at the cross Jesus also bore your judgment for sin. No one can now judge you when you sin, for Jesus has already paid the debt for your sin in full. This is important because these spirits will try and tell you that God is judging you or afflicting you. These two truths of your redemption will empower you to defeat this spirit that wants your house.
When you accept Jesus into your heart you get a new spirit, a new heart, and God’s Spirit comes and makes His home in you. Now with God’s Spirit in you the Greater One lives in you.
Jesus also delivered you from Satan’s kingdom and translated you into God’s kingdom. God has also made you His heir and made available to you all the resources of His kingdom. You are instructed to put on God’s armor. His armor is spiritual truths of your redemption in Christ.
You have received Jesus name, at which, all demons will have to bow to.
You have God’s all powerful word that can be used as a sword when dealing with the devil. You have Jesus’ blood on the door post of your heart which will keep all judgment away from you.
Jesus stripped Satan of his power on the cross and has given you, as a believer, power over all the power of the devil. We also can use anointing oil to put over doorways. Even anointed clothes can be placed under pillows or on those who have been afflicted or tormented by these spirits. We can play anointed Christian music to set an atmosphere of peace in the house.
Jesus said when you enter a house release peace into the house. We have the power to control the atmosphere of our house. Jesus gave us the keys to His house and said that whatever we bind on this earth God will bind in heaven and whatever we loose on this earth God will loose in heaven. The greatest weapon of all is the Holy Spirit living inside of us. Ask the Holy Spirit if He has any insight on why this spirit is in your house and how it got there. Then ask Him if He has any special instructions for you.
Many times these spirits will try and manipulate you are creating fear in the atmosphere. Normally your reaction is all the hair on the back of your neck and arms will stand up and you will feel the fear. Never be intimidated by an evil spirit. They are liars that have been stripped of their power when it comes to a Christian. You have complete dominion over them.
Unless the Holy Spirit gives you some specific instructions you can go in the house and release the peace of God into the house. Say something like: “Father I release your peace into this house in Jesus Name”. You may want to walk through the house and put some anointing oil over each door frame and proclaim, “I anoint this house in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Then you may want to quote scriptures. Make sure you quote then with great authority. You may say something like, “I speak to you foul spirit in the name of Jesus and I bind you and I command you to leave this house.” Jesus said, “I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy,” Hebrews 2:14 declares that Jesus defeated you on the cross and rendered you powerless. This is my house and I do not permit you to stay here. You can say something like, “I am a child of Abraham and everywhere I put my foot belongs to me and I’m taking dominion of this house right now. This is my house in Jesus name.” If you are baptized in the Holy Spirit you can pray in tongues and worship God. The Holy Spirit may bring a song to your remembrance that you can sing. When you take this spirit on make sure you walk in the house like you own it and you are going to rip this spirit in half. Show no fear or weakness, for this is spiritual warfare. You are a soldier of the Lord and victory is yours. I assure you God’s word is true and He will back your words. His angels are with you and they will make the spirit leave. It may take more than one battle to get it out of your house but don’t back up or shut up. Keep fighting it in Jesus name and speaking His holy word to it and it will leave. For truly greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world.
