Pornography and such like in our homes will grieve the Holy Spirit away, and He will withdraw like in Samson’s life and you will be left powerless in the Spirit, just like Samson.

All of us want to have our homes to be spotless and fine.
It is what we should desire for our souls as well!
1.Corintian 3: 16 know you not you are a temple of God and the Holy Spirit dwells in you?
Put away the leaven.
Leaven in scripture is sin, evil or false doctrine.
Why does the church lack power? Joshua 7:1 ….Achan.
Why is our authority over the enemy so compromised?
Why does revival tarry? Joshua 7:12-13 there is an accursed thing amongst you.
Objects of idolatry in our homes are a curse. Deuteronomy 7:25-26 the graven images of their gods shall you burn with fire. You shall not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor takes it unto you, lest you be snared therein. For it is an abomination to the Lord your God. v/26 neither shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be a cursed thing like it, but you shall utterly detest it and you shall utterly abhor it, for it is a cursed thing.
The seven steps to purification:
1. Present yourself before the Lord for His inspection!
Self-evaluation is not enough and deceitful.
Do as David did, he prayed: Search me oh God, and know my heart, try me and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Ps. 139: 23-24.
2. Sanctify yourself. Cleanse your home of pornography and sin, literature defiled etc.
(Sanctification is to be set aside for God as for Gods purpose!
3. Locate the offensive items.
Achan's sin was located to the ground in his tent, with the silver (50 shekel) underneath.
4. Rid yourself of those things that defile.
Remove anything that relates to the occult, heathen worship and to sin, and destroy them.
5.Be serious about it.
Don’t allow your children, husband or wife to pollute, defile the house/home. Stop them! – Be very determined.
6. Renounce the enemy and your association with him.
Break any contract or unholy ties. Renounce out ALOUD, and repeat this renouncing for every item and every person involved.
7. Finally, consecrate your life and property to the glory of the Lord:
(Some Christians choose to anoint the house with oil as a symbol of the Holy Spirit. This is called a prophetic act.)
Some places in India oil is replaced with water, water sprinkled in every room.
In extremely grave cases prayer and fasting is required.
Mark 9:29… This thing can come forth by nothing but by prayer and fasting.
