If a child tells you they’ve seen an apparition, you need to be on guard. Hey if you’ve seen an apparition or have some other worldly manifestation (you know what I’m talking about), YOU need to be on guard. If we can believe the Master of the universe is a Spirit the Holy Spirit, why do rationalize ourselves or children out of the fact that they we did see a dark spirit. I know the fantasy box (tv) will tell you it’s just tv. If your child or any child brings you a report of this (or you have a report of this), don’t dismiss it so quickly. In fact don’t dismiss it at all. Children have just as much ability to “hear” and “see” as we do. If your child or any child brings you a report of this in your home, you need to take note and stand guard. Put on the Armor of Ephesians 6 and start cleaning house. Sorry…not talking spic and span. 😉 You exactly know what I’m talking about.
“Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.” Exodus 34:14.
God is commanding us to get rid of our idols. It could be a physical idol, it could be a relational idol, it could be a habitual idol, it could be many things. Whatever it is, get rid of it! You need to clean your house and ask the great counselor, the Holy Spirit, to help you do it. If you don’t know what “it” is that allows “the boogie man” to enter, then ask God to help you discern it.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.” John 14:26.
God spent quite a bit of time with the big ten. You know them: 10 commandments.
“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6but showing love to a thousand [generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6.
God is very clear about this. NO IDOLS….isn’t it odd that there are t v shows that promote something God tells us not to do. If we don’t “clean house”? Don’t be surprised if your child (or you) continue to experience the work of his darkness. And his darkness is not a friendly ghost. If you welcome it into your home (knowingly or unknowingly), they…yes…they will gladly come in a bring a legion of their friends along (Luke 8:30, Mark 5:9, Mark 12:45). It is time to CLEAN HOUSE! Ask the great counselor, the Holy Spirit, to help you CLEAN HOUSE! If you don’t believe in the boogie man or casper or any spirit, but want a easy read check out this awesome book by Perry Stone.
