“Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry” – Colossians 3:5
The Apostle Paul mentions “uncleanness” as something people should mortify or abstain from…think about that for a moment…uncleanness certainly applies to immoral behavior but have you ever considered that it also applies to physical behavior? Take a look at the pictures of the nearby homeless camps below and notice the mountains of garbage at each encampment. Jesus Christ had something very interesting to say that connects unclean demonic spirits with people and their behavior that is recorded a few places in the New Testament Luke 11:24 – “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.” and also Matthew 12:43 – “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.”…or Luke writes this in Acts 5:16 “There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits…”
—–> have you ever considered that when you see human beings living in enormous piles of garbage and filth that you are seeing the physical manifestation of evil unclean spirits? You are! This is why the Apostle Paul and Peter and John each wrote about the critical need to abstain from physical uncleanness. Most churches will never teach this, but one only has to visit one of these filthy garbage strewn homeless camps to see other clear and obvious evidence for demonic presence in the humans who reside there. Pray for the homeless, they have no idea they are under such immense demonic unclean spirit influence in their lives.
