Demonic doorways are open doors that provide a portal or gateway for the demonic to enter in order to harass, torment, oppress, destroy and do all the things that demons do.
The demonic operates in a hierarchical network both within an individual and through acquaintances, friends, family, community, society, organisations, authorities and governments. This demonic ‘network’ is fully able to communicate and co-operate to achieve its aims. The demonic will even commonly work through other Christians and churches, especially those who are lukewarm, carnal and following false doctrine.
Just as in the Stephen King story “Needful Things”, the demonic knows what will entice and trap us. It knows our past and to some extent our future also and will act accordingly.
The demonic should never be under-estimated. It knows our strengths and our weaknesses and is capable of working carefully and patiently according to long-term plans. Just like the ultimate bullies they are, they will wait until a person is in a weak or vulnerable situation before they launch an attack in order to destroy.
Some things open the door to demons which are more dangerous than others. Due to the deceptive and cunning nature of the demonic, anything that opens a demonic doorway is dangerous because the demonic works together, in groups rather than in competition, so that a comparatively harmless demon (if there is such a thing) can act as a gateway demon, opening the door for other more powerful and dangerous demons to enter. There are lists available on the internet of demon gangs known to commonly work together, which can help with deliverance.
Bible – Devouring Lion
The demonic will build strongholds, much like an invisible castle, where they can hide, to conceal their presence so that their host is completely unaware they are there. This stronghold provides a place from where they can plot, plan and manipulate to weaken their target, in order to gain a toehold, foothold, stronghold and then a stranglehold.
The subject of strongholds is a deep and complex one and there are many ways to define a stronghold. Such as it is a way that the enemy has a ‘strong hold’ on someone, or it is an ingrained pattern of thinking.
Casting down strongholds
Closing doorways, casting down strongholds and removing licence grounds
In spiritual warfare, it is crucial to identify, renounce, cut off and cease anything that provides a doorway for the demonic to enter – often also at the same time giving demons licence grounds to do what they do.
Closing demonic doorways, casting down strongholds and removing licence grounds will enable those who have been delivered of demons to walk out their deliverance.
The Bible tells us
that devil is an expert deceiver,
and never comes but to steal, kill and destroy.
Do not sit with those who drink
Whatever the form of the demonic doorway, specific renunciation prayers work very well as a form of repentance and can be found on this site and elsewhere on the internet. Some are long but only need to be said once, aloud for best effect and for a woman with her head covered. Renunciation prayers can be found on this site or elsewhere on the internet.
The Armour of God
Jesus came to expose
List the things that are most important in your life, in order. Are there things which are more important for you than God, such as family, friends, social status, money, employment, hobbies and pastimes – anything. Does God occupy the throne in your mind, heart and soul?
“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” (Luke 10:27)
Touch not the unclean thing
List if possible by name everyone – whether living or dead – from childhood to the present time with whom you have now or have ever had, any unforgiveness, resentment and bitterness. Renounce the unforgiveness, choose as an act of will to forgive them as you want God to forgive you, and ask God to save and bless them.
Natural, step, or adoptive parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, brothers/sisters, cousins, nieces/nephews, aunts/uncles, spouse or ex-spouses, their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, brothers/ sisters, cousins, nieces/nephews, aunts/uncles, your children.
Childhood friends, students, teachers, principals, you went to school with, teammates, coaches, co-workers, bosses, customers, anyone you dated or lived with, anyone you participated in sexual activities with, anyone that abused you sexual, verbal, physically, anyone you bought or used drugs and alcohol from or with, anyone you committed a crime with, cellmates, corrections officers, wardens, judges, lawyers, any doctors, nurses, surgeons whose care you were under, if you had an abortion, any person, doctor, nurse, that participated with the procedure and the other parent of the aborted baby, anyone you participated in occult activities with; people in any club or group you were in.
Lords prayer forgive
Sin and Unconfessed sin
List any unconfessed sin. Unconfessed sins will hinder your deliverance. Such as, you may have been born again ten years ago, but today you told a lie, gossiped, or cheated.
Liars will not enter
Who love me – will do what I saw
List those you have been sexually involved with in any way whether outside of marriage, or inside marriage in an ungodly way (such as pre-marital sex, with pornography or oral sex). This includes rape, molestation, assault, harassment, homosexual/lesbianism, transgender issues, bestiality, masturbation, oral sex, anyone you had sex with, participated in sexual activities with, used sexual objects or toys with, pornography, anyone you lusted or fantasized over.
Any type of addiction, whether sexual or alcoholism, drug, cannabis or tobacco addiction, even food addictions open demonic doorways.
Trauma and Abuse
Any situations where safety is at risk, such as war, a natural or other disaster or accident, violence. Non violent forms of trauma such as shocks and disappointments can open demonic doorways.
Simulated trauma and abuse in all its forms, such as horror movies and thrillers, horror stories, etc. Most PC or video games, whether offline or on, whether war games, Legend of Zelda, Super Mario or My Little Pony (at a closer look).
Rock concerts, drug raves and dangerous sports can open up demonic doorways. Even a ride on a ghost train can open a demonic doorway, especially for children who can be vulnerable, giving demons an entrance.
List all those people – living or dead – or things to which you have had an inordinately strong emotional attachment, or which have had some form of ungodly control over you. Such as:
Natural, step, or adoptive parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents (and to a lesser degree going back ten generations) brothers/sisters, cousins, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, spouses or ex-spouses, their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, brothers and sisters, cousins, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, your children, childhood friends; students, teachers, principals, at school, teammates, coaches, co-workers, bosses, customers; anyone you dated or lived with; anyone that abused you verbal or physically, anyone you bought drugs and alcohol from or used them with; anyone you committed a crime with, cellmates, corrections officers, wardens, judges, lawyers; any doctors, nurses, surgeons whose care you were under; if you had an abortion, any person, doctor, nurse, that participated with the procedure, the aborted baby and the other parent of the aborted baby, psychiatrists or any other health care workers.
Pray in the name of Jesus to renounce and cut any unholy soul ties, such as unhealthy relationships with friends, ‘soulmates’, ex-boyfriends or ex-husbands. Identify any unholy soul ties created by inordinate love for any idols, pets or animals, music bands, singers, songs, actors, actresses, characters, authors, books, movies. Anyone in any occult or ungodly club or group you were in, such as martial arts.
For example, Freemasonry, Elk Lodge, Moose Lodge, KKK, and any other masonry groups, etc. There are specific long renunciation prayers for freemasonry which is a powerful form of witchcraft known to be particularly dangerous due in part to its powerful oaths and vows, and its worship of “The Great Architect” who is in fact Lucifer.)
Broken Covenants and Vows
List any individuals or organisations with whom you have any broken covenants and vows. Such as marriages, memberships, bills, foreclosures, bankruptcy, etc.
List everything you are prideful of. Do you feel you are ‘better than’? Do you believe you have a better marriage than others, a better ministry, a better profession, know more Bible than others, more athletic, more knowledgeable, more attractive, etc? Whatever talents we have are given by God and so we should give the glory to God, as per the last line of the Lord’s Prayer: “For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.”
Pride – throne
God does not share his glory with any other.
Celebrating Pagan Holidays
Halloween provides an occasion for adults and children to do things that they would perhaps never otherwise do, such as dress up and play act as witches, monsters, or, say, serial killers, sometimes trick or treating, decorating their homes and gardens with demonic objects and images. This has various effects such as giving children messages that these types of things are harmless fun, when in fact they provide dangerous demonic doorways. Halloween has a very dark side, as it is the most important day of celebration in the satanic calendar where satanic entities are worshipped and animal and human sacrifices are carried out.
Christmas and New Year celebrations have always been closely bound together. This pagan feast began in Ancient Babylon. It was celebrated by Romans using the name ‘Saturnalia’ which even up to as late as 300AD often included human sacrifice.
God told Moses that the beginning of the year should be in Hebrew ‘Abib’ corresponding to in the Roman calendar March to April, i.e. early in spring:“And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, this month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.” (Exodus 12:1-2)
“Hear the word that the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel. Thus says the Lord: “Learn not the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them, for the customs of the peoples are vanity. A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move. Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.” (Jeremiah 10:1-5)
Easter is of medieval origin and contrary to popular belief such things as eggs, baskets, egg hunts, and rabbits, etc. have nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus or anything else remotely Christian. The word ‘Easter’ itself is derived from the name of the Egyptian goddess, Astarte, Asherah, Ashtoreth, the Queen of Heaven, or Ishtar, all mentioned in the Bible. The term ‘Easter’ is apparently mentioned once in the KJV Bible in Acts 12:4, but that is in fact only a mistranslation of “Passover”.
May Day is one of the eight days of the year dedicated to Satan and directly connected to the worship of Baal and Ashtoreth, which is expressly forbidden in the Bible upon pain of death.
God has said that we should hate evil as he does
Eat from the table of god and devils.
Check your home, garden, garage, office and transport for any occult symbols or cursed objects which are idolatrous or otherwise connected to the demonic, against this list.
Dispose of any items or symbols (not by selling them or giving them away) and say the prayer to renounce the possession of cursed objects linked to at the end of this article.
