The Full Armor of God
And
Anointing Your House

 

September 17, 2000

Hi Sally:

Here is what you do to anoint your house or apartment to protect yourself from Satan and Demonic forces (save this and print it out and use it as you go around anointing): take a drop of oil on your finger (olive, vegetable) and anoint your home in the following way:  walk around your home and touch with your finger the doors, windows, cats, dogs, children, yourself, and your spouse (anoint together with your spouse even better) while praying the following:

*Prayer for Anointing House

"Jesus, by faith I anoint me, my spouse, the children, the cats, the dogs and this home, windows and doorways and declare them all holy unto you and ask that you would cleanse us and this home of every unclean spirit and human spirit that does not belong here. In the name of Jesus, Satan, I bind you, I bind you hindering spirits, I bind you spirits of the prince of the air, I bind you evil forces, I command you to take your hands off of our spirit soul and body, heart, mind and emotion and material things; off of the children, the cats, the dogs and this home. I bind your mouth and your power and command you to be gone forever. Jesus, I pray for the anointing of your blood, the surrounding and protection of Your mighty warrior angels and the overshadowing power and protection of Your Holy Spirit over me, my spouse, the children, the animals and the home, the windows and the doorways and ask that You would protect us from any attack of the enemy whether in spiritual or physical form, in Your name, Jesus, amen."

Sally, these Scriptures are your authority for this:

Luke 10:19 "Behold, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy and to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and nothing shall injure you."

Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."

Revelation 12:11 "And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death."

Psalm 34:7 "The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and rescues them."

John 14:13-14 "And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it."

Sally, the other thing you and your family need to do at the start of every day is put on the full armor of God to protect your spirit from attack of the enemy according to Ephesians 6:13-17,

"Therefore, take up the full-armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

*Prayer For Armor

Pray simply this way:

"Jesus, I pray for the full armor of God, the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith by which I will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one, the belt of truth and that you would shod my feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace, and for the sword of the Spirit which is Your word; in your name, Jesus, amen."

You put this on by faith once a day. When you do God will put this armor over your human spirit for the day which will protect you from attack of Satan in the spiritual realm against your spirit. An example of being attacked in your spirit is suddenly having irrational fear and anxiety. I know you don't fully understand all this, this will come in time, but until then daily anoint your home and it's inhabitants and put on the full armor of God by faith and you will do well in the Lord.

*Objections to Anointing & Armor

Lately I have Gotten several letters complaining against the anointing and putting on the armor of God. One man wrote me and said "All I need is Jesus. Jesus is my covering and protection." Another person said I was creating a religion and that we are saved by Faith in Jesus alone. What is the problem here? First, they are talking about what constitutes our salvation. I agree with them, we are not saved by works or by putting on the armor or through anointing our houses but through faith in the death and shed blood of Jesus on the cross and that alone. However, when we talk about the anointing and the armor of God, we are not talking about what saves us. We are saved, we cannot be saved anymore than we already are, get over it! What we are talking about here is Jesus' instruction to us in His Word about how to protect ourselves from the attack and assaults of the enemy Satan. The fact that we are saved does not mean we will not now come under the attack of Satan. It means that we will come under the attack of Satan all the more. The Bible teaches in 2 Timothy 3:12 "And indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." This is not just talking about persecution from the world, but from the spirit world of Satanís kingdom as well. While anointing our homes and place of work and putting on the armor of God does not save us, it does protect us from the attacks of Satan from the spiritual realm.

Another person claimed that I was teaching that if you follow Godís Word and instruction to us about these things that we will never have trials again. I do not teach this and never have. I have many articles on my website to the contrary. Putting on the armor protects our human spirit and anointing our homes keeps unclean spirits and human spirits astral-projecting in Satanís service from entering our homes and attacking us. However, there are times when God gives Satan permission, as he did with Job and Peter, to attack and test our faith for His reasons and purpose. So while it does not promise that we will not have trials in life, it does promise to protect us and help us get through these trials.

What happens when we do not daily put on the armor of God according to Ephesians Chapter 6? First, to not do so is to disobey God, to be in rebellion against His clear commands to us to put on the full armor of God in,

Ephesians 6:13 "Therefore, take up the full-armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm."

If just being saved was sufficient, why would Jesus have this instruction in His word after we are saved? Jesus said in John 8:47 "He who is of God hears the Words of God." What does the Bible teach will happen when a person does not obey the instruction of God's Word? God's Word instructs us:

James 4:7 "Submit therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

To not obey God's clear instruction to us in His Word to anoint our homes and put on the FULL armor of God is to be in clear rebellion against God.

Ephesians 6:15 "Shod your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace."

1 Samuel 15:22-23 "Has Yehovah as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of Yehovah? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry."

Note the word FULL. Putting on the full Armor of God includes submitting yourself to the Gift of Evangelism which means submitting yourself to go through a complete Evangelism Training Program. To not do so is to be in rebellion against God and to be in the enemies camp. As a result we place ourselves in the enemies camp and our human spirit is then nakedly open to the attacks of the enemy and there is nothing we can do to stop it. Why? Because only when we are submitted to God do we have His protection from Satan and His word commands us to put on the FULL armor of God which includes going through a complete Evangelism Training Program. Even with the armor your human spirit will come under attack, put the end results of those attacks will be much more mild than if you do not put on the FULL armor of God. Only a person who has been daily putting on the armor of God can testify to the difference in their lives of what happens when they do not put on the armor of God and Jesus' anointing of His blood, surrounding of His mighty warrior angels and the covering and protection of His Holy Spirit.

Anointing the home is not any different. When you do not anoint your home, if you are married, you will find you and your spouse getting into arguments and shouting matches and saying things to each other you would never say if Satan was not free through the lack of anointing and armor to influence your thought life and inciting you to unkind words and even violence. My wife and I get along very well 98% percent of the time and have no problem working out our problems reasonably and quietly. what about the other two percent? The other two percent is when we get up, are distracted by phone calls and being late for work and forget to put on the armor and anoint ourselves and our homes and places of work. What happens then? Suddenly we are having a screaming metaphorically knock down drag out, screaming at each other and saying hateful words. Because we have practiced daily putting on the armor and anointing our homes, we realize after a short time it is not us and that we forgot to anoint ourselves and our homes and put on the full armor of God. So we stop and anoint our home and put on the armor and all is quiet spiritually and most times we donít even remember what we were fighting about in the first place. That is because it did not come from us but from the incitement of Satan.

This is also true in doing evangelism on the field. When we forget to pray for the full armor of God and the covering and surrounding of Jesus Blood, angels and Holy Spirit in our going out aggressively to share the Gospel, as we approach people suddenly there are screaming kids all around us, animals bothering us or something else distracting and hindering our ability to share the Gospel. The few times this has happened, we got off into a quiet place and prayed putting on the armor of God and the anointing and then continued our evangelism efforts. The end result then is not that everyone we talk to gets saved, but at least we are able to give a clear complete presentation of the Gospel with challenging the person to receive Jesus as their savior and Lord without interruption. That is our definition of a successful time of evangelism: not whether the person receives Jesus in our presence, but whether we were able to clearly and completely from the Word of God explain to that person what it means to be a Christian and how to become one. That is because success in Evangelism is not just getting the person to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord but being able to without interruption explain to them what it means to be a Christian and how to become one. I explain why this is true in my article and sound-byte titled How to Bring a Person to Saving Faith in Jesus Christ. This is not possible if we have not first beforehand prayed and asked God for His full armor of protection and for the covering and protection of Jesus' blood, God's mighty warrior angels and the overshadowing power and protection of Jesus' Holy Spirit.

We go into deeper explanation in our next article about when the armor and the anointing works and when it does not work and why.

Sincerely in Jesus,
