Ekev (Because or heel)

Deuteronomy 7:26 Do not bring an abomination into your house, or you will share in the curse that is on it: but utterly detest it and hate it; for it is a cursed thing.

Question: Should you do some “Housecleaning” in your house? Is there anything in your home that may cause you demonic problems caused by curses coming into your house through idols? Look through your home as you pray and יהוה will let you know what items need to be destroyed that have become an idol to you. You do not have to worship any item for it to be idolatry. Just having these things in your home give demons legal right to be in your home.

Question: Should you have any good luck images? 1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the חַטַּאת sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected את־ word of יהוה, he has also rejected you from being king.  (Idolatry can be good luck images.)

Question: What are Idols of the heart? These idols are based on man’s use of them. They include such objects as the teraphim <08655> — objects that were used as a ‘mighty-one’ to bring healing, and objects used to bring good luck or fortune. In this category an idol is defined by man’s response to, and affection for the object, which becomes a substitute for the True Mighty One, hence it is a worship-substitute for יהוה. Gold, silver, money, cars, etc are examples of idols of the heart. Other examples of idols of the heart are ‘my will’ instead of יהוה’s will; my own understanding, my own ambitions, my own strength, my own self-reliance, and many others of man’s own making, all of which become substitutes for יהוה, His Word, and His will.
