Introduction
We all have things within our homes that we know off and some that are hidden from us, long forgotten or its history unknown. Just how many of those things are honouring to God? How man of these things are as innocent as they seem, they could well be harboring bad spirits by creating a bad atmosphere and creating disharmony within the home. Here are my thoughts as to what we posses in our home, how we perceive them and what God most likely thinks of them.


Satan's Perversion of Gods Creation for Evil
Anything can be used for an evil purpose or be incorporated into occult ceremonies or spell casting. For example spells are often recorded on to a cassette tape, the tape is then spooled off and wrapped around objects, anchored to bottom of streams etc or simply left in certain places. This doesn’t mean that we should all get rid of every cassette tape and claim its “off satan”

Indeed it is easy to become paranoid about such things and go way over the top and obsessive, which is in itself not healthy for us, for example banning anyone from entering the house who wears jewellery in case they have one of dozens of type of crystal that is used in new age healing. Who created crystals in first place? Well obviously God did. Man and Satan have simply taken a perfect creation and used it for their perversion and evil. Just because Satan has decided to fool man into using certain objects for evil, dose not mean we can also enjoy these objects for the purpose they were intended.

There is nothing wrong with us from going out and digging up bucket loads of crystals and minerals and displaying them in our homes, or buying them from a specialist mineral and rock shop. However we may run into problems if we just buy crystals etc from any old source as we have no way of knowing what they were used for, if their use was for satanic purposes, such as healing, they most likely come with a “bad spirit” . These can of course be spiritually cleaned and polished and cleansed from their bad past, but for most of us it will be best to err on side of caution and just to leave well alone.


DO You Know What Is Actually Hidden Or Coming Into Your Home?

It is possible that you could have other objects that are not so obvious as having been used for satanic uses as all manner of things can be used, rope, knives etc quite often a Christian household can experience trouble and turmoil simply because of the bad spirits connected to an object that has been bought unwittingly into the home. Prayer and seeking out items is then obviously a good route to take.

When my mother became a Christian and my father left us there were problems and disharmony eventually this was tracked down to a crystal ball that my grandmother used for fortune telling. It was amongst her possession that my father horded in the house when she died, removing that object changed the harmony of the home.

Another type of object entering the home can be something simple like a leaflet or flyer being put in your mailbox/ through door. If it is to do with occult or satanic practices, such as spiritual healing then again it could have some bad spirit about it, even ripping it up and putting it in bin can still generate a negative discord in the home.


Demonic Origins.

So far we have looked at individual objects that, when they were created are pure and harmless, but have since been perverted and tarnished by Satan through satanic practices. However what about objects that are an abomination to the sight of God regardless of when they were created and what they are made out of and in what images they take on. These objects are demonic objects. These objects can be of any form, be they statues, pictures, ornaments etc but they all are objects that are an abomination in Gods sight and dishonour God.



False Gods

SO what items can we have that are so terrible? Well we all should know about false gods and goddesses, this is a good place to start. A false god is a false god no matter what form it takes. Greeks and Romans had a number of pretty beautiful and amazing gods, one of the most famous we all can identity is Eros also known as Cupid to the Romans.

There are a plethora of pictures and statues of Eros and it isn’t that difficult to obtain a statue of this cute little chap with wings and his bow and arrow, however this is a god and was worshiped, doesn’t matter that thousands of years have gone by, to our living God and creator of the universe time is same as it is now as it was at dawn of time, this statue or image is still a false god brought into the world by Satan to deceive man, it is still an abomination before God.

Another popular figure people own are Buddha’s some are comical looking and brought back from the far East as a souvenir, but again they are false gods, how do you know the more genuine ones also do not come with a bad spirit?

There are plenty of others, but we don’t need to go through those as you should get the idea from above two examples.


Demonic Creatures and Entities
or
Inventions Of Satan

From very early in mans history, one of Satans battle plans to draw mankind from God and the true spiritual battle was to offer a number alternative realms and entities that inhabit them.

Introduction To Some Creatures.

Fairies
Subclass Leperauchan, Dullahan, Pooka, Changeling's, Grogoch, Banshee and Merrow

The origins of these creatures have been lost in time, there are a number of theories such as this is a separate race of beings who were driven into hiding when man took over the world. However we do see countless stories of them turning up in medieval times and by a huge number of names across the globe. Fairies were popularised and made into cute pretty young maidens, however many cultures a fairy is not exactly pretty and can be hideously ugly. Some cultures say that fairies are quite simply the dead roaming the earth looking for souls to take.

Many places in Ireland still hold strong to beliefs that fairies exist, such as Leprechauns, and Banshees.. Someone having bad luck or disharmony in the home often looks to remove a bad fairy from with their home. Offerings for another type of fairy are left after harvest. Fairies are able to predict the future and cast spells.

Gnome/Dwarf/Goblin

The name of these elemental beings vary from country to country and again have been with us for as long as written records exist, another lost race of beings or of a supernatural type that inhabit the very bowls of the earth.

Elves
A race of small people that belonged to ancient European gods and goddesses. These creatures inhabit woodland and water and underground often thought of as being immortal, able to cast spells etc.

What’s the Big Deal?
Fiction over the years, indeed over the centuries, take Shakespeare midsummer’s night dream for example, have made most of these popular and acceptable, people love the images of pretty young girls and beautiful women with wings who sit in flowers having fun. If these were simply stories and manipulated by Satan, then maybe it wouldn’t be so bad, However these stories have all come about from the original belief in that these creatures are real to start with.


Long before the stories people were sighting and speaking to these creatures. Whole communities would be in fear of these creatures. People seek out these creatures and believe them to be real and inhabit the after life and other realms. Some most famous people are noted to have consorted with such beings who gave them their fame, such as Stevenson who wrote Treasure Island, He claims all his stories were given to him by fairies.

The Origins and true intentions
The Origins of All these creatures are not from the imagination of man, but as demonic manifestations who went out and made themselves known to man to deceive them and even make them live in fear under their rule. There are places around the world today that are still held under these demonic powers .

A cute plastic ornament of a little cheeky chap with red hat and fishing rod may seem like harmless fun as a pretty looking female with wings,, but as we have seen, this is actually an image of a demonic manifestation. Again I say had these been part of mans invention, then we simply can claim Satan is perverting them, however it is the reverse, Man is copying a demon and buying into an invention of Satan.

Obviously then this is a total blasphemy and abomination to God. Do you still want one? Well nothing to stop you that’s free will. But can you be certain God will not mention it when judgment comes?



Ghosts and Apparitions
Yet another satanic invention, Ghosts are simply demons playing at taking on the identity of the dead, again designed to take mans attention and mind away from the truth and God. Look how many spiritualists etc there are and how many people who believe they have seen and even spoken to ghosts of people they know.

Is it right to have any images to do with Ghosts? Of course not, so why do we have images and play things etc of such things in our homes?



I think that’s enough to discuss. Lets keep it civil and remember that we all have free wills and can do what we like, if someone wants to do something that is up to them.

not at all, I am not imply that, I am simply saying that we maybe in possession of an item that has been used for say human sacrifice 200 years ago and still has something nasty associated with it, I did say its easy to get paranoid and throw everything out.

It is very unlikely all of us will be in such possession of an item, but some people maybe.

I pretty much agree with your post, Andrew. I am careful about not bringing things into my home that are associated with the occult or new-age. To tell the truth, I am leary of all the angel hype and figurines also, because I was in a church that started getting out in left field concerning angels and the surpernatural.
God doesn't want us to be blind to such things; I am always praying for more wisdom and discernment. People whose gifts are in the area of spiritual discernment are so very misunderstood these days.
It's good to know I have a brother who is aware of these things.

That is good, but dont become too paranoid, as that is another trick of satan, to make us obsessed about being religous etc, things like crystals are beautiful creations , but just be aware of what any crystal history is. looking at tapes again, we all have cassette tape, nothing evil in it on its own but it is just one of any object that can be used , err on side of caution is good, but not to extent of paranioa!

Right on!

Christians who want to go for God and enjoy the freedom and victory He promises need to do a major room-by-room purge of their homes! We have done it in our church and as new believers come and begin to grow, they also do it. Some have rid their homes of major music collections, some have purged themselves of old phpotographs of their "party days" without Christ. I rid my home of an original ink canvas from Bali, of a pagan Bali dancer.

It's a great thing!

Of course ...the history any object is rooted in is what we need to look at. No need for paramoia, just common spiritual sense.

I guess I'd start with fantasy beings (elves, gnomes, fairies, etc.) ... do you have a source to cite regarding their origins?

Not a thing that I can think of Giaour................don't remember anything being possessed besides people in the Bible, but evidently the demons have moved on to plastic gnomes and pictures of Elvis.

Very well written Andrew! We need a topic on this as there needs to be awareness! I started a similar thread cause I didn't know about gnomes yet and wanted to know. Now I know!

Oujia boards, faeries, gnomes and the like are all ways Satan has deceived people. Just as we should not hang Oujia boards on our walls, it is not a good idea for us to decorate our homes/gardens with gnomes and such.

It is believed by wiccans that if you can earn the trust of a gnome, they can help you. But if you anger them, it will cause poltergeist activity in your home. Satan uses these gnomes and such to deceive people. Wiccans actually do not believe in Satan at all, so you can see how they are being so deceived. They also use Oujia boards thinking they are in contact with loved ones passed on, well in actuality it is very likely a demon impersonating and deceiving the person using the Oujia board. It seems to me if we decorate/posses items that are cherished and created/invented by wiccans, etc. and used for things that are purely evil in God's eyes, we should want nothing to do with it. we are told to abstain from the appearance of evil. To me that says it is not enough for us to not believe the statue possesses no power, it is also important that we abstain from even just the appearance of evil.

I hope people make sure they read the third paragraph before they start comparing ladders to Oujia boards. But I have a feeling that paragraph will be disregarded. :thumbsup:

I never did say that demons inhabit gnomes etc but its what they represent, denomic manifestations, also you can have a bad curse kind of thing placed on inaminate objects, Demons are free to roam, so buildings are technically posessed with Ghosts, etc. evil objects will emit evil atmosphere.

I'm sorry, this whole topic is just strange to me. An object has absolutely NO power in and of itself. The only power an object has is the power we give it. I mean, really. Even the Bible declares the images of false gods to be worthless, useless and so on. Now, I'm not into garden gnomes and the like, and to be honest they kind of creep me out, but to post articles such as the one posted here is to lend credence to the absurd notion that an object can harm us in some way. I don't get it.

I was kidding about Elvis. I don't own such a heinous thing.

Oh come on Andrew! You're into the realm of superstition now. Evil objects emitting an evil atmosphere?? Curses on inanimate objects? Brother, with all due respect, you have passed into the Twilight Zone.

The difference here, of course, is that an oija board has but one purpose -- that for which it was constructed. Elves, gnomes, fairies, etc., being fantasy and folklore, have taken on so many different forms that people can't even agree (and don't necessarily want to) about which is which. I would point to writers like Lewis and Tolkein who have used such creatures within the fantasy/folklore purpose. These things don't make a normal person stumble, because normal people understand the difference between fact and fantasy.

It just amazes me how people can give power to inanimate objects.
Paper,stone,rocks,fabric,paint etc have no supernatural abilities.

If a person uses a rock to summon the dead, it is the beliefs of the person summoning that is evil, not the rock.
The rock cannot posess abilities.
