Free Christian Counseling: How to Sanctify Your Home

Question:
Pray for my husband,children and my son-inlaw, I was told by 4 different pastors 2 of which are my brothers that my husband had a curse put on him for which none of them wanted to pray for his deliverance. I have been praying for him for months cause ever since we lived with my little sister for 7 months to help her out because her husband was in prison and we never knew she and her husband were into witchcraft until she showed me her library of incantations. I scolded her for having those books cause we grew up in church, but she didn't want to hear what I had to say she told me that she was jealous because her and her husband had been in trouble with the law and that my husband and I never did. I told that her and her husband have to get right with God because she was loosing her children to drugs but she didn't want to hear it, she said that it was her life and that no one could tell her what to do. So I started praying for her and her family got upset because I was praying for their deliverance and started cursing at me, after that things got worse between my husband and I and my husband had never laid a hand on me. I was pregnant and had a miscarriage, my husband got very upset with me thinking that I had lost our baby purposely so he slapped me around a little bit till my eldest daughter came in to stop her dad. My husband had never had violent outbreaks like that and that took me by surprise, I walked to my brothers room called my mother- inlaw and she told me to call the police or put him in a mental institution. My husband came to my brothers room to ask for forgiveness and told me that he didn't know what happened, he didn't feel like himself and said you know I have never laid a hand on you and I told him well I forgive you but we have to move out. A week later we gave a hundred dollars down on an apartment but my sister got mad and said that my husband and I are not going to move out until we pay her depts first and give them money to move because her husband is native American they were given free land in yuma and they needed the money. I told what did you do with the money we gave you? My sister said non of your business what her and her husband do with the money is their affair not ours, well I told her if I give you more money then I wont be able to pay the rest of the deposit on our apartment so she threw us out that night no where to go there was some hotels close by so what money we had we stayed at a hotel for a week. That night I prayed for God and called my mother- law and my cousin for help financially to get our apartment, thank God they were able to help us with the money to move in. My husband had always worked to support us and loved going to church, he is also a clean freak and now he is lazy hasn't had a job in 2 years and and hasn't cleaned house. I want to work and clean but he won't let me, we used to work together at the same job now and he was thinner. Now he acts like my little sisters husband he drinks abd smokes and hates sundays and always wants to fight with my son- inlaw who just came to the Lord and struggkes with his salvation, he gets co nfused because if he doesn't accept my husbands invitation to drink or smoke all hell breaks loose and if my children don't want to see horror with him all hell breaks loose. I tried to get some help because he wanted to cause an argument, so I found a website online on how to break curses so I prayed according to what that person said to pray and told me to ask the demons name and I did and the demon said lucifer and swung at me I didn't move fast enough and my husband swung at me sideways and hit me in the eye. He went back to himself again and asked for forgiveness and said that maybe he should leave for good, but then he says that he can't make it without us only because my daughter and her husband are the only ones working. Today knowing that rent needs to be payed asks my daughter and son- inlaw to buy him this big picture thats worth 70 bucks and doesn't care if we are short on rent, now my daughter is stressing and if we say something he will get angry. Like I said he was never like this, now he smokes inside and my lungs hurt and I can't say anything because he says women need to keep quite and respect their husbands and he curses liberal women. Please help me pray for these strongholds ti come down in the name of Jesus,thank you for taking the time to read my message.


Answer
To solve the problems you are facing in your marriage and home, I suggest you follow these steps to sanctify yourself and your home:

1. Get Saved
To get saved, say with your mouth "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that when He died for our sins God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

Then workout your own salvation. Click here to read How to Workout Your Salvation


2. Put on God's Armor
This armor of God is very important in helping you fight and win spiritual battles like the one you are engaged in. Click here to learn How to Put on the Armor of God.



3. Pray without Ceasing
The Bible tells us that We do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses because He was tempted in all points just as we are and yet He was without sin.

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help us in time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)

Therefore you can go boldly to the throne of grace and pray for your husband for yourself even if Pastors do not want to pray for him. 

So commit to Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17) so that you can find out from God the curse that is on his life and discover what you need to do to break it because God also tells use Call Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which do not know. (Jeremiah 33:3)
Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

As you pray always ensure you are wearing the breastplate of righteousness because The effective fervent prayer of a righteous person availeth much. (James 5:16)

The effective fervent prayer of a righteous person availeth much. (James 5:16)

4. Loose Yourself
Jesus asked, How can one enter a strong man's house and plunder their goods unless their first bind that strong man and then plunder his house? (Matthew 12:29)

From your case it seems that when your little sister lived with you in addition to attacking with witchcraft, she also bound you and plundered your marriage and house because you say your husband did not have violent outbursts before and he always worked to support your family and loved going to church and was a clean freak but now he hates Sundays, and does not clean or work.

To lose yourself, pray and ask Jesus to set you free because He liberated the woman who had a spirit of infirmity for 18 years and she could in no way raise herself up. (Luke 13:11-13) 

Then confess freedom Scriptures over yourself like:
I have freedom in Christ Jesus. (Adapted Galatians 2:4)


I am free and free indeed because she who the Son sets free is free indeed. (Adapted John 8:36)

My body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19) and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17)

I am standing in the liberty by which Jesus Christ has made me free. (Adapted Galatians 5:1)

I walk in freedom because I seek the precepts of God. (Adapted Psalm 119:45)
My body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19) and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17)


5. Recover your Losses
Pray and ask God to help you recover what you lost when you were bound and your marriage and home plundered.

Combine your prayers with confessing restoration Bible verses like following over your marriage and husband:
God is restoring double for my trouble. (Adapted Zechariah 9:12)

Jesus is giving me beauty instead of ashes and joy instead of mourning. (Adapted Isaiah 61:3)

I am recovering everything. (Adapted 1 Samuel 30:8)

Instead of shame in my life, marriage and home, I have double honor. (Adapted Isaiah 61:7)

Instead of confusion in my life, marriage and home, I rejoice in my portion(Adapted Isaiah 61:7)
God is giving me beauty to replace ashes, joy to replace mourning, praise to replace sadness. (Adapted Isaiah 61:3)




5. Get Your Family Saved
Speak to your children who can understand the concept of salvation and lead them to the Lord Jesus.

Then begin talking to your husband about getting saved. If he does not want to hear about salvation or Jesus, preach to him with your actions for the Bible tells us, Wives submit to your husbands so that even if they do not obey the Word, they will without a word, be won over by the conduct of their wives when they observe your chaste conduct. (1 Peter 3:1-2)

Therefore let your good conduct do the talking and tell your husband about Jesus without you saying a word with your mouth and God will save him at the appointed time.



6. Build God an Altar in Your Home 
Build an altar for God inside your home. Click here to here to learn How to Set Up a Family Altar in Your Home.

You can also dedicate your home and all its occupants and contents to Jehovah Shalom which means The Lord Is Peace (Judges 6:24).



7. Remove Idols from Your Home
Remove all idols, tarot carts, ouija boards, yoga equipment, witchcraft equipment and all other paraphernalia used for fortune telling, dealing with other gods, evil spirits or the occult in any other way.

Remove these items from your home and burn them. Sometimes these items are buried somewhere and you should ask God to show you their locations so that you can uproot them spiritually even if you cannot uproot them physically.

As you pray, address your prayers to Jehovah Mikadishkim because He revealed this aspect of himself to the Israelites when he told them, "Consecrate yourselves and be holy because I am the Lord your God and keep my statues because I am the Lord who sanctifies you." (Leviticus 20:7-8)

If these evil items belong to your husband and you are afraid of what he will do when he finds them missing, leave them where they are but break their power spiritually by praying since The weapons of our warfare are not carnal. But they are mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4) These mighty weapons are salvation, righteousness, truth, the Gospel, faith and the Word of God which constitute the Armor of God. 

For example you can pray and say, God has given me authority over nations and kingdoms to root out, to pull down, to destroy, to throw down, to build and to plant. (Jeremiah 1:10) 

I therefore plead the Blood of Jesus and root out, pull down, destroy and throw down all evil items and evil altars in my home dedicated to false gods. 

I build and plant an altar in my home and dedicate to the one true God, Jehovah Shalom, the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

After removing these items, clean your home and keep it clean to the best of your ability even if your husband does not want to clean.  If you feel tired every time you begin cleaning read How to Treat Spiritual Chronic Fatigue


You can also also buy some red grape juice, pray over it to represent the Blood of Jesus and sprinkle it over the rooms in the home to cleanse them spiritually. You can also spray water that you have prayed over to sanctify your home. 



8. Speak God's Word in Your Home

The Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God (Ephesians 6:17) therefore fight for your home spiritually by speaking the Word of God in it every day. For example you can do this when you are cleaning and tidying the different rooms in your home or at any other time. 

Bible verses that you can confess over your home include:
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15)

Peace be to this house! (Adapted Luke 10:5)


Peace be to us. Peace be to this house. Peace be to all that we have. (Adapted 1 Samuel 25:6)

May the Lord bless us and keep us. May the Lord make His face to shine upon us and be gracious to us. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us and give us peace. (Adapted Numbers 6:24-26)

God's eyes are open and His ears are attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For He has chosen and consecrated this house so that His name may be here forever. God's eyes and heart will be here for ever. (Adapted 2 Chronicles 7:15-16)

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15)




9. Play Christian Music in Your Home
We are told to Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise (Psalm 100:4) so play Christian praise and worship music in your home all the time. 

If your husband does not like Christian music, you can play it even at zero volume because it works on the spiritual place even when it is not being heard audibly. 

Inviting God's presence and spirit in your home will also keep the evil spirits you have expelled from your home from coming back again for Jesus taught that When an unclean spirit goes out of a person, it goes through dry places looking for rest and finding none, it says, "I will return to my house from where I came." When it comes back, it finds it swept and in order. Then it goes and takes 7 other spirits which are more wicked than itself and they enter and live there and the last state of that person is worse than the first." (Luke 11:24-26)

As you put these measures of cleansing yourself and your home, ensure that you are always in close communication with God by Praying without ceasing and reading your Bible each day because God is the one who best knows how you can win the battle and He can direct you as you seek His face. 
Enter his gates with thanksgiving. Enter his courts with praise. Psalm 100:4


10. Obey God

Once God shows you what you should do to break the curses on your husband's life or anything else that you should do to change the situation in your marriage and in your home, obey Him. If it is a hard thing, ask Him to give you the strength to help you do it.
