Cleansing your House and Property

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our recommendation is that you are a born-again Holy Spirit filled Christian before you attempt to cleanse your home or property. Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?” Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded (Acts 19: 13-16, NKJV). If you are going to cleanse and bless another home or property you must also obtain authority from the owner of the place before you do this.
"On that night I will pass through the land of Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male animal in the land of Egypt. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the Lord! But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt". (Exodus12:12-13, NLT). * We see how important it is by this Scripture to have the seal of Jesus in our homes!
Cleansing your home and property is something I believe all Christians should be equipped to do as demonic spirits will always try to infiltrate your home; more so if you are involved in frontline ministry. There may also be curses attached to the land that enable them access. "Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. But you must keep My decrees and My laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you. (Leviticus 18:24-25, NIV).
The Bible says we have authority over the enemy: "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you". (Luke 10:19, KJV).
Please note: When warfaring against satan and his demons we recommend staying within our God given boundaries such as our homes, families, belongings, Ministries and property. Operating outside of this realm of authority and attempting to tackle satan over larger areas usually results in unnecessary attacks. There is usually an anointing given from God with instruction to do so if strategic level warfare is to be done!
We recommend not doing this by yourself, it is better if you can do this with another person or persons. We recommend using anointing oil and while walking around your home touch with your finger the doors, windows, cats, dogs, children, yourself, and your spouse. People have often asked us about the use of oil so I approached Father God on this matter and this is what I believe He spoke:- "Olive oil in the Bible represents the Holy Spirit. The oil is a symbol/token and represents my power and anointing. Wherever you place the oil is a prophetic act of inviting My presence. Using the oil signifies a belief in Me and My power to heal and to touch lives. As long as the oil is used as a token/symbol of My presence and does not replace Me that is fine. As long as one does not look to, or rely upon the oil instead of Me that is fine. It is not the symbols that carry the power it is the belief in Me on behalf of the symbols that carry the power". The use of anointing oil is a prophetic act based on faith, it is not the oil itself that gives protection, the power and blood of Jesus Christ does. If you do not have oil continue without as it is not a necessity.
