Touching dead bodies and spiritual defilement
Have you ever touched or kissed a dead body of a family member or friend at their funeral? I have seen people come under great bondage simply by touching the deceased body of a loved one. God’s Word warns us that touching a dead body can defile us spiritually:
Numbers 19:13, “Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his uncleanness is yet upon him.”
Numbers 9:6, “And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man…”
I just spoke with somebody the other day who touched a dead body when he was a child, and at that moment something very evil and scary entered him, and he was never the same since. I believe it was that night when he was sleeping, he awoke to see red velvet walls around him, as if he was inside a casket. Today I just spoke with another person who experienced something similar after touching a dead body… she started having horrible nightmares about the person who had died.
Grave yards and funeral homes are often crawling with demons. I know of somebody who lived in funeral home and could testify to the haunting they experienced there… doors slamming at night, strange noises, etc. How does this happen? When a person dies, the demons that have been inhabiting them are left hanging onto the body, and can remain around that body for years before they find a new home.
I remember one person telling how they had nothing but problems in their new home… it was as if the place was cursed! Come to find out, their property was an old Indian graveyard and the land was defiled and haunted by demons. Land can be defiled just like people as we can see in Leviticus:
Leviticus 18:25, “And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.”
Touching or kissing a dead body can be very dangerous spiritually, because not only do you become defiled but you are literally allowing the demons that are hanging onto that body to practically jump over on you. I know people who have done this, and right afterwards began to experience spiritual torment in their lives… it is nothing to play around with!
How do you deal with such a bondage? First I believe we should repent for touching the dead body, then I would break any ungodly soul ties with that person, break the curse of death in your life, and then begin to cast out any spirits that have entered in through that open door.
