'Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it. You shall utterly detest it and utterly abhor it, for it is an accursed thing'
'For the Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and give your enemies over to you; therefore your camp shall be holy, that He may see no unclean thing among you, and turn away from you'
'So the Lord said to Joshua: "Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face? Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. For they have even taken some of the accursed things, and have both stolen and deceived; and they have also put it among their own stuff. Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they have become doomed to destruction'
'In churches it is often the sins of the leadership of the churches in the previous generations that have given demons a right over the fellowship. For example there are many Anglican churches whose foundation or dedication ceremonies included Masonic rituals, sometimes as an acknowledgement and thanks to the local Freemasons who contributed money towards the building of the church. The practice of Freemasonry is idolatry. Idolatry is an anathema to the Living God. The commandments warn us that the sins of the fathers in this respect will be visited on the children for three or four generations...Spirits of Freemasonry will legalistically exercise their right over whatever congregation is gathered in that church for all of time. They will hold the fellowship into the bondage of the past, unless the matter is properly dealt with through repentance for the sins of the ancestors (the Nehemiah principle Nehemiah 1:6-7, also Leviticus 26:40) by the present day leadership of the church, and by effective spiritual warfare against the ruling spirits through praise, worship and deliverance ministry. Effective cleansing of both churches and individuals requires specific ministry to deal with the legalistic rights that demons have'
