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. The use of annointing oil is a prophetic act, it is not the oil 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.
Please note: We do not believe in ghosts (spirits of people who were once living and now wander the earth lost). The Bible is clear that the soul of someone who has died either goes to be with Him in Heaven or goes to Hell.
HOW DO WE CLEANSE AND BLESS:-
*We recommend to do this every 3 months, but seek the Holy Spirit as you may need to do more or less*
*Start outside, moving on to the inside, then into each room of house – don’t forget to address all demons in garages, sheds, cars, crawl spaces, roof spaces and hiding in any cupboards, wardrobes etc*
1) Protection - “We pray for the light and love of Christ to flow in this place. (Romans 8:38-39, NKJV) For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. We clothe ourselves in the full armour of God in Jesus name. We ask for a covering of the blood of Jesus Christ, and a hedge of protection over and around us, our families, our homes, properties, pets, belongings, health and places of work. We ask for a release of Your Heavenly angels in order to carry out Your God given mandates. We ask that You would dismantle everything that satan may be sending against us. (2 Thessalonians 3:3, NKJV) But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one”.
2) Binding – "(Mark 3:27, NKJV) No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth we bind the strongman and all demonic spirits present from manifestations, distractions, interference, blocking and counterfeiting the Holy Spirit. We forbid you from harming, touching and transferring into us, our families, our pets and our belongings. (Luke 10:19, NKJV) ‘Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you’. Every demon that is named and commanded to go must leave immediately and all demons under the authority of, and/or in a group with the named demons are commanded to follow. With the name, blood and power of Jesus Christ we now close all channels of infiltration and break all counterfeit silver cords and ungodly soul ties connected to this home and property, and every one of us. We command all watchers and demons that have been sent to watch and disrupt to leave in Jesus name”.
3) Consecrate - Home, property, family, possessions to the Lord Jesus Christ. (Simply speak this out)
4) Acknowledge – “We acknowledge Jesus Christ as Headship over this cleansing and we give You Lord Jesus the control and all the glory. We submit to you and bind our minds to the mind of Christ and bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5, KJV). For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. We bind ourselves to the will of God”.
5) Gifts – “We now invite the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit. We pray that You would manifest Your power and glory throughout this session. We pray for an outpouring of Grace to flow in this session. (Hebrews 4:16, NKJV) Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. We ask for a release of Your gifts and fruit. We ask for any gift and fruit of the Holy Spirit necessary for the task set before us. We ask specifically for discerning between spirits, wisdom, seer gifting and word of knowledge. We ask for the compassion and empathy of Christ to flow from us in Jesus name”. *Open the ears and eyes of everyone present - “I speak to all eyes and ears present and declare Matthew 13:16 over them, ‘Blessed are your eyes for they see, and blessed are your ears for they hear"'.
6) Forgiveness - "Father we stand in the gap and repent for all sins and activities committed in this home and land that enabled the enemy access to this home, land and its people. We cancel all authority given to Satan by previous owners, visitors and tenants and break all access points, curses, contracts, legal agreements and holds in the name of Jesus Christ. We forgive those who have sent curses and ask you Father God to bless them. We also forgive every person who has sinned on this land and property that enabled demonic spirits and curses to inflict us. We specifically reject and repel infirmity, pain, infection, inflammation, malignancies, allergies and viruses. We take the sword of the Spirit and sever all ungodly soul ties between the land, occupants, building, belongings and attachments (second hand, new and inherited) and any previous owners, people, animals and demons in the name of Jesus Christ. Any traumas that have taken place on the land we pray for healing and peace to be restored in Jesus name ”.
Pray: "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14, NKJV).
7) Shine the Light – “Lord Jesus we ask you to shine your light to show us any sins that need to be repented and broken, and any other areas needing to be addressed”. (Stand in the gap, confess the sin and repent. If the sin has been committed by current owners, they will need to do the repentance themselves). *Ask the Holy Spirit to show you any cursed or occultic objects in your home, you may need to bless and break curses, anoint or even discard.*
8) Command - “We command every demon on this land, property, in this home and belongings, on and around people and pets, to leave immediately in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ”. (As you walk around keep asking for God to shine his light in each room as there may be repentance needed for any sins committed, then keep commanding all demonic spirits to leave. Ask God to bless each room as it is cleansed, and cover with the blood of Christ).
*Name the demons specifically if given a name - don't ask the demons for their name as they will probably lie anyway, rely on the Holy Spirit for this*
Deaths in the home - (Pray) - "I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death" (Revelation 1:18, NKJV).
"He will swallow up death forever" (Isaiah 25.8).
“We cut with the sword of the Spirit all ungodly soul ties between (dead person) and the room, bed, bedding, and all personal effects. We release the (dead person) to the Lord Jesus and command all spirits of death, murder, infirmity, sentiment, witchcraft, fear of death, grief, loss, mourning, necromancy, familiar spirits and everything else with you to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. We cancel all blood that has been shed and replace it with the blood of Christ. We release peace into the home in the name of Jesus. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27, NKJV)".
Satanic pentagrams/symbols or ceremonies – (Take communion on the property and pour some of the juice/wine over the area). “We take authority over the power of these symbols and acts and cover with the blood of Jesus Christ. We command every satanic, occult and witchcraft spirit to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19, NKJV)".
Tapu on the Land (Tapu: Maori religious custom proclaiming something as sacred or forbidden. Only those given authority can touch or enter otherwise the Maori gods will punish you). A territorial demonic spirit will guard the land when there is a tapu attached to the land. As authoritarian over the land you will need to stand in the gap on behalf of the land and repent for all sins that have defiled the land (Use the guidelines below). If possible have someone with Maori and Pakeha descent to stand in the gap for the forgiveness parts of the prayer. If you feel that you or your ancestors may also be guilty of any of the sins below then repent on behalf of yourself and your ancestors also.
1) Repent for standing on tapu land and or touching things that are deemed sacred.
2) Forgive the Maori chief and Maori people who proclaimed the tapu.
3) Repent for all racism towards Maori.
4) Repent for all racism towards Pakeha.
5) Repent for the wars and bloodshed between Maori and Pakeha, and within their own races. Pray that the Blood of Christ would cleanse all blood that was spilled on the land.
6) Repent for all Pakeha people who stole land from the Maori race.
7) Repent for all curses from the Maori and Pakeha people that were placed on the land, property and all who set foot on the land.
8) Repent for all worship of other god's that took place on the land, specifically Maori gods.
9) Forgive the Maori's for all curses they have placed on you, your family, your ancestors, each other, the land and everyone who has set foot on the land.
10) Forgive the Paheka's for all curses they have placed on you, your family, your ancestors, each other, the land and everyone who has set foot on the land.
11) Forgive the Pakeha's on behalf of the Maoris for stealing the land.
12) Pray a blessing on all Maori's and all Pakeha's.
13) Pray: "We break all curses off this land and all people who have set foot on this land. We break the Tapu over this land and everything on the land. We command the territorial spirits and all other demons associated with the aforementioned sins to leave now in the mighty name of Jesus Christ".
9) Worship - (Fill the entire place with worship to God. If there has been satanic worship, this will replace this).
10) After Cleansing Prayer - “We thank You Jesus for Your work here today. We thank you for the protection You give us. We pray for strength to be imparted to each and every one of us. We pray against all counter attacks and bind retaliation and revenge, accident and misadventure from any manifestation or attacks against us, and all our families. We cut all ungodly soul ties between each and every one of us, the land, building, pets, and belongings. We ask for a release of Your angels to continue to minister to each and every one of us as needed. We ask for a fresh infilling of Your Holy Spirit. We ask for Your grace and love to continue to flow in each and every one of our lives. We give You all of the honour, the glory and the praise – Amen"!
