In Buddhism, which is false Eastern religion, they believe they can reach enlightenment by resisting worldly desires – this is the false practice of mind over matter. Also see my document on 'Gnosticism', includes a prayer of repentance at the end of the document that can be used for cutting or any blood letting.One of the desires Buddha tried to suppress is something every person needs in order to survive, and that is to eat!He tried to reach what is referred to in Buddhist religion as ‘samadhi’, and he practically starved himself trying to attain it.See history of Buddha’s life.The evil spirits that enticed him to do this are the same evil spirits that entice people who are anorexic not to eat.Many people know there are fat statues of Buddha, but a lot of people do not know there are also skinny statues of Buddha.You can even find a bust of what is known as the ‘fasting Buddha’ in the British Museum – the perfect picture of anorexia!Both the skinny and fat Buddha statues are doorways for evil spirits – and these evil spirits are the influence behind anorexia, bulimia, and even gluttony.While the skinny Buddha statues are the doorway for anorexia, the fat Buddha statues are the doorway for bulimia and gluttony.Although people with bulimia usually are not heavy, bulimia is still associated with gluttony due to the massive amounts of food eaten just prior to the self-induced vomiting.Participating in Buddhism (which is the spiritual root of yoga and meditation); or having Buddha statues and images in your home can cause you – and more than likely your future generations – to struggle with eating disorders.Many people who struggle with anorexia and bulimia are being visited by evil spirits (evil spirits that entice eating disorders) because of their ancestors false practices – and their own false images.Deuteronomy 18:9:When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.Deuteronomy 7:26:Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it:but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.Joshua 6:18:And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing lest ye make yourselves accursed when ye take of the accursed thing and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.Deuteronomy 23:14: For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy:that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.The Hebrew word for ‘accursed’ in Joshua 6:18 “lest ye make yourselves accursed” is “charam, khaw-ram’; …to seclude… to devote to religious uses (espec. destruction)… make accursed… (utterly) destroy… forfeit”.
By having cursed objects in our Christian homes we re-connect our self to the same iniquity as our ancestors, and could eventually forfeit the inheritance that Jesus Christ so freely gave us – unless we get these cursed abominations out of our homes! Christian’s should not decorate their homes with objects of worship, especially if they do not know the origin (history) of these items.The actual object itself is a cursed thing, and therefore an abomination to God!Regardless of whether or not you have bowed to it, you are still living with an object that is cursed.Exodus 20:5 and Deuteronomy 5:9 says that the children are ‘visited’ with the ‘iniquity’ of their fathers, for what their fathers bowed to, unto the third and fourth generation.Exodus 20:5 and Deuteronomy 5:9:Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.John 14:15:If ye love me, keep my commandments.John 14:21:He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.The Hebrew word for ‘iniquity’ in Exodus 20:5 and Deuteronomy 5:9 is “avon, aw-vone’; or avown; perversity, i.e. (moral) evil… mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin”.Exodus 34:7 and Numbers 14:18:The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. You could be displaying objects and images in your home that are very much like those your ancestors (forefathers) might have bowed to, and because of this you are being visited by the same evil spirits who tempted your ancestors (possibly even three or four generations back) to sin.Regardless of their reasons, many people are going to the extreme where food is concerned and the culprits behind their temptation (visitation) are the evil spirits that instigate anorexia and bulimia.Buddha statues and images are doorways for these evil spirit(s) and their evil influence.It may come as a surprise to many Christians but even their idolatrous picture of the Lord’s Supper can be an evil door to overeating; or a crucifix to anorexia (the image on the crucifix even looks anorexic).Evil doorways of décor can, and will, bring bondage into a person’s life.If you have any of these cursed objects you need to remove them and pray for God to heal the damage that has been done to your body.You also need to say the prayer at the end of this document.In some cases, the people who suffer with anorexia or bulimia may not even have statues and images.If you do not have any of the unclean objects or images please still say the prayer at the end of this document.Without realizing it you may have enticed this visitation (even without having the objects).Perhaps you invited it by participating in a false religious practice (i.e. martial arts, yoga, meditation, or something else that has a root of false religion).Or, maybe it is not a false religious practice that opened the door to over or under eating.Some may have invited it just by taking their body to the extreme.For example:Bodybuilding can become very dangerous physically during competitions when a person’s body is pushed to the extreme through strenuous diet and exercise.Many even binge on sugar just before they compete in an effort to make their veins protrude.Another area where many take their body to the extreme is modeling.Modeling can be physically dangerous when constantly striving for a low body weight.This may lead some towards anorexia and/or bulimia.Another thing a person can do that may invite evil temptation and eating disorders into their life is to allow their mouth to spew out evil.Proverbs 18:20:A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.New Living Translation reads:Proverbs 18:20:Words satisfy the soul as food satisfies the stomach; the right words on a person’s lips bring satisfaction.Proverbs 18:21:Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.When there is bad fruit coming out of our mouth, and our mouth is out of control, then even our belly will not be satisfied.This scripture in Proverbs has a perfect application towards food.When a person’s mouth is out of control so will their eating be.Not to say that every person who is fat or skinny has bad fruit coming out of their mouth, but where there is no balance with the mouth the end result may be anorexia, gluttony, or bulimia.Another aspect is people who are very quiet.Though they do not have bad fruit coming out of their mouth they may still struggle with eating disorders because they are not able to say, for whatever reason, the things they want to say.Again, where there is no balance with their mouth there is no satisfaction.A lot of the things they want to say they are holding inside and therefore are turning towards food; or in some cases turning away from food (anorexia), as a way of trying to attain satisfaction.The bottom line is that with anorexia, bulimia, or gluttony the belly (appetite) is never satisfied, and neither is the emotional state of our mind.Our appetite includes our spiritual appetite; and our physical appetite – appetite is a part of our soul.Our soul is our mind, our will, and our emotions. The Hebrew word for ‘soul’ in the Old Testament is “nephesh, neh’-fesh; …sense… appetite… breath… desire… greedy… heart… life… lust… mind… pleasure… will”.The Greek word for ‘soul’ in the New Testament is “psuche, psoo-khay’; …breath… heart… mind”.The Greek terms “exactly correspond respectively” to the Hebrew.With Buddhism or any other false religion a person will never be satisfied, because satisfaction comes only through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!Many people who do not have Jesus Christ in their heart do not like who they are.Some will do anything they can to hurt them self, because they are hurting inside.Many resort to things that will hurt their body, such as:cutting/self-torture, suicide, eating disorders, and even false religion.Mainly because they are searching for help in the wrong place!False religion, including its images/icons, can be linked to cutting and self-torture.The following is a Biblical example of the link between false religion and cutting one’s self.I Kings 18:26-28:And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us.But there was no voice, nor any that answered.And they leaped upon the altar which was made.And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud:for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.Participating in false religion, or having the images/icons associated with false religion, can cause people to respond in many different ways.False religion leads to destruction!
If either you or your ancestors have had any involvement in any ‘un-Godly practices and organizations (such as: Buddhism); or if your family has a history of anorexia, bulimia, gluttony, divorce, depression, suicide, cutting/self-torture, alcoholism, drug addiction, anger, control, jealousy, pornography, stealing, poverty, lying, fear, witchcraft, stubbornness, rebellion, etc.; or if they have practiced any form of martial arts, yoga, eastern meditation, etc. please say the following prayers. (You can put anything else the Lord may lay on your heart in the blanks below). You may also say the following prayer for your spouse (or ex-spouse’s) family to cover the bloodline of your children with prayer:
I proclaim before Heaven that I am a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ my Risen Savior.Father God, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I confess to you my sin(s) and the iniquity of my ancestors for _________ _________ _________.Not only have I confessed my sins, but the sins (iniquities) of my forefathers. Nehemiah 9:2:And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.By doing the things they did they have (knowingly or unknowingly) allowed, and invited, evil visitation into my life.I ask you to forgive me for anything I may have done to reinforce this evil visitation.Forgive me for any way that I have (knowingly or unknowingly) re-connected this generational chain of sin in my life.Please destroy this evil chain of sin from my life, and I will remove any unclean objects or décor from my home.I acknowledge these things as sin, and I ask you to separate me from all evil visitations which I have allowed or invited into my life (due to my own sinful actions and/or unclean objects of décor).In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and because of the Blood He shed for me, I command any and all evil spirits to leave me and my family.I destroy every evil assignment against us in the name of Jesus Christ closing every evil door that has been opened in our life through sins, evil dedications, and/or decorations.I ask you to cleanse me, and my family, with the shed Blood of Jesus Christ – and to remove every evil door.From this day forward I receive only generational blessings in my life and my family.In Jesus’ name.Amen!
