Spiritually and Emotionally Connected

A Clean House is Not Good 

43 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked that itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation. Matthew 12:43-45

In this scripture the ‘house’ is likened to a person’s body. The impure spirits are actually evil angels who will manipulate  a person’s mind leading them into addictions, depression or any emotions that are not positive. As the person seeks help and gets better they may think that all is well, but not so.

To empty one’s self is good, but to remain empty will be very harmful, the bible tells us so. If a person remains clean and empty, they are in danger of adding on to the problems they had before. The issues they had before will now have much more added on to them. After we have gotten rid of the impure, we now should be willing to be filled by all things pure.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Philippians 4:8

If we would do the things mentioned in the above scripture, it would bring us into a much closer relationship with God.

    Thanks Julie….that is why I think we need to be careful when and how we meditate, because the bible says it is not good to keep an empty mind, we need to fill our minds with the goodness of God….I truly believe that is where good mental and spiritual health comes from….God is to be our filling.
