Keep sorting, sifting and throwing out objects and possessions you have gathered, collected, inherited and bought that are NOT GODLY. Ask yourself honestly if these “no-things” are bringing you closer to the Lord.

I was reading

“Prepare! Strong Delusion Is Here. WARNING: Clean Your House Now! – Only a Grain of Sand” (

which inspired my personal quest to ferret out DVD’s of movies my now-adult children bought over 15 years which don’t belong in a Holy Spirit-filled home. Youth reading with magic, witches or other unclean themes left over from teaching public school upper grades. CDs of music with unhealthy preaching and suggestions to just go ahead and sin (like Madonna and Michael Jackson) from a lifetime ago when everyone bought popular current rock music with nary a thought to how grieved all of these items must have made Jesus. Choosing worldliness over holiness happened quite easily to me during the 70’s – 2010. I just didn’t think about how these items impacted my walk with Christ. It’s all out in my dad’s garbage (he is a widower with far more space every week). You know what? Holy Spirit smiles down on me tonight. I know my God appreciates a sincere effort for His Kingdom. I will continue my search…

Here is my comment to that article about throwing everything away. Do not be tempted to give or sell the items as this will just put them in someone else’s hands. God is watching. Remember that.

  1. I’d also like to add to not selling these items. Don’t give them away either. We’ve been trained to be thrifty and recycle — not be wasteful — but the ancient Israelites were warned to destroy the idols in the lands they were taking. Here is an example. Holy Spirit this past fall was talking to me about all the Halloween in my home — from fabric, to cups, kid’s songs on CDs, decorations and children’s picture books (I teach) though I am a dedicated Christian. I just never really thought about the worldliness and sin contained in it all. I had been collecting them over 20 years not even really thinking about the witches, ghosts, vampires, etc. depicted. Just all in good fun right? WRONG. I had to go around my home, garage, sewing cottage and classroom discarding it all. Right out to the garbage it all went…though someone else would have found it “useful” as the fabric, especially, was brand new (I make and sew pillow covers online, but will no longer offer Halloween, Santa (an anagram for satan and a sad counterfeit of true Holy Spirit of giving), Egypt, or Mermaids (sexual sirens). I thought about the Old Testament cure for items dedicated to other gods (which was breaking and burning) and ended up pitching it all as I, too, like you said, do not want to be responsible before my Holy God for contributing to someone else’s idolatry!
