I think we all enjoy our anointed homes that we have prayed over and where we have Christian music playing. I don't know about you, but I have cultivated an atmosphere of praise in my home. It is peaceful.
I enjoy being there in the presence of the Lord. In fact, sometimes it makes it difficult to leave my home to go out in the world.
However, as I travel for the kingdom of God, and as some of you travel for your work, ministry, vacation or holidays, how do we continue to protect the natural environment we have to live in and guard our souls when we are away from home?
We need to pray over and cleanse the hotel rooms and other places in which we need to temporarily live. Demonic spirits are released in hotel rooms through pornography, impure sexual activity, adulterous relations, televisions, people and prostitution. Along with spirits of perversion, we could be dealing with territorial spirits, familiar spirits and a variety of other spirits that have been deposited and activated in a hotel room.
We want to cleanse the environment in which we have to occupy from addictions such as pornography, gambling, smoking and alcohol. Sometimes, we have no other choice but to stay in a hotel that houses gambling, smoking and alcohol, because we are on a business or ministry trip. You can bet those demonic spirits are running rampant through the activities taking place.
Here's how you can cleanse a room you need to occupy from demonic activity:
—Anoint the doors, windows and bed with oil.
—Pray aloud and command, "Every demonic spirit in this room, I command you to leave, in Jesus' name."
—Bind and restrict luring spirits from seducing anyone into any of the addictions that have taken place in the room, such as sexual impurity, lust, perversion, pornography, masturbation, smoking, drugs, alcohol or gambling.
—Speak and decree audibly, "I command every spirit of lust, perversion, rape, sexual abuse, prostitution and defilement to get out of this room, in Jesus' name."
—Pray to dispatch angels into the room and speak out, "I cover this room with the blood of Christ."
—Take authority over the room by speaking and declaring, "There will be no demonic visitations or manifestations. I release the authority and dominion Jesus has assigned to me to reign in this room. I speak and decree this room is full of the presence of God and shalom peace."
—Have Christian music playing in the room, even when you are not in the room.
—Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any other demonic entities you need to cast out.
—Read or speak out some Scriptures aloud in the room.
—Keep the television off. Don't contaminate your atmosphere with TV.
Don't be legalistic about praying everything; seek and ask the Holy Spirit what to pray. And don't be fearful of staying in a hotel room or another room away from home, but be cautious and alert. We cannot be ignorant of the enemy's devices. I've had some phenomenal times with the Lord with His glory descending while I've been in a hotel room, but I do take authority and cultivate that atmosphere of praise.
Use wisdom in the coming weeks, and if you find yourself experiencing ungodly activities or unusual sickness, pray and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any attachments, defilements or transferences that could have manifested in the hotel room. Remove these demonic attacks by simply praying if you discover them or every time you leave a hotel room by speaking out, "There will be no ungodly attachments, defilements or transferences, in Jesus' name."
