In the video Lessons in Spiritual Warfare: Pt. 1 we spoke about “Doorways”. If you feel you have opened doorways to demons in your life, they must be closed “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1st John 1:9 If you have participated in any of these things you can simply close the door by a prayer such as the following: (I’ve taken this directly out of Rebecca Brown’s book Prepare for War)
Prayer to Close Doorways
“Father, I confess to you my involvement in __(name the activity)___ I recognize that such a thing is an abomination to you and detestable in your sight. I humbly ask your forgiveness for my sin in this area. I ask you to lift out any demonic entrance as the result of my actions and to cleanse me from my sins and close the doorway forever with the precious blood of Jesus. I ask for this and thank you for it, in Jesus’ name.”
Then I recommend that you address Satan and his demons out loud in a manner similar to the following:
“Satan and you demons, I have asked my heavenly Father for forgiveness for participating in __(name the activity)___ and have received it. I now, by faith, close the doorway of that area of my life to you forever through the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross for me. In the name of Jesus I command you to leave me and never return!”
Protecting Your Home:
If you are living in the same house as someone that you feel is being influenced by a demon or spirit, each day, out loud, take the aggressive against the demons in them. You can do this in another room where the person living with you cannot hear you. Say something like this:
“You demons binding __(name of person)___ , I take authority over you in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. I bind you in the name of Jesus, you may not afflict __(name of person)___ today. My house is committed to the Lord and is holy ground. You are trespassers and may not function here. I bind you and command you to leave in the name of Jesus!”
This battle will be a daily thing. I cannot tell you how long the battle will take, only the Lord knows in each case. Be alert to the fact that the demons can speak through the other person, often being very rude and insulting to you to try to drive you away. In many cases it becomes necessary to rebuke the demon directly as he is speaking through the other person and command him to be silent. YHWH will guide you.
You must understand that this is a real battle. You will not win over night, but you do have the power and authority in Yahshua Ha’Maschiach to win in the end.
