Blessed and cursed objects in The Bible


One of the frequently asked questions is “what are the blessed items?”. In short, blessed objects are the opposite of cursed objects. 

There are numerous references to blessed and cursed objects in the Bible, in both the Old Testament and in the New Testament, here are the few of them...

2 Kings: 13:20-21:

Elisha died and was buried. At the time, bands of Moabites used to raid the land each year. Once some people were burying a man, when suddenly they spied such a raiding band. So they cast the dead man into the grave of Elisha, and everyone went off. But when the man came in contact with the bones of Elisha, he came back to life and rose to his feet.

Acts 19:

11 God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.

Objects can be cursed, especially if  they are idolatrous, somehow profane, or connected with evil and the devil, such as occult symbols, and so forth.

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you.”  (2 Cor 6:17)

“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.” (Deu 7:26)

“Therefore I esteem right all Your precepts concerning everything, I hate every false way.” (Psalm 119:128)

“Neither give place to the devil.”  (Eph 4:27)

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil.” (Proverbs 8:13)

“I will set no worthless thing before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not fasten its grip on me.” (Psalm 101:3)

“Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.” (Acts 19:19)

“And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.” (Jude 1:3)

The main reason objects are cursed is because they are or have been used in idolatry which is an abomination to God. God Himself has cursed anything which is or has been used in idolatry, no matter how ‘valuable’ it may seem to be. Therefore cursed objects constitute what are effectively demonic doorways, giving demons licence grounds to operate. It is only “living souls” – people and animals (nephesh meaning any creature that breathes) – who are not subject to that rule.

It does not make any difference whether someone knows objects – or symbols which are used powerfully in the occult as their true nature can be hidden – are cursed or not, or whether someone knows they have them in their home or garden or not. They can still be used by the demonic just the same.

There are many ways to hide occult symbols such as 666 and the devil is an expert at deception, so check carefully for hidden symbols. There are other symbols to be avoided but which are commonly found everywhere, such as the ‘eye of horus’ found in paisley and the very common fleur-de-lys which is commonly seen on all sorts of decorative objects, especially ironwork such as gates, fences and door furniture.

The devil and his demons are expert deceivers and will look for ways to get a toehold, a foothold, a stronghold and then a stranglehold in people’s lives.

Demonic doorways – or gateways – provide licence grounds or legal rights, to demons to harass and torment in all the ways that they do. 

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”(Exodus 20:4)

“The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therin: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.” (Deuteronomy 7:25)

“Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” (Psalm 97:10)

“I hate and despise falsehood, But I love Your law.” (Psalm 119:163)

“Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man.” (Acts 17:29)

“Let love be without hypocrisy Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.” (Romans 12:9)

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” (2 Cor 10:4-5)

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:  therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”  (Deuteronomy 30:19)


And Deuteronomy 28:

The Blessings of Obedience

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.

And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow. And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

The Curses of Disobedience

But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. The Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish. And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.

The Lord shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed. The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth. And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

The Lord will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.



Beware of some Christian literature where it is not that unusual to find occult symbolism.  False doctrine (Jezebel spirit) will constitute a cursed object. To some degree, ‘New Age’ Bible versions can constitute cursed objects. For example the “New King James” Bible is not a new version of the “King James Bible”, or anything like it. At the front of most but not all NKJV bibles there is something called a triquetra which is supposed to be a trinity symbol or symbol of the Godhead, but is actually a hidden ‘666’ one of the most powerful satanic symbols.

With modern technological evolution Devil adapted and evolved in a ways to take control of the human soul - TV, computers, Internet, YouTube, social media, etc. While Devil still uses the same old tricks he always used, it would be naive to expect Satan to use the same old tools as he used 2000+ years ago. To counter the Enemy - Devil, it is essential to use the same resources and tools to fight back and protect ourselves. Before, every person in need would have to travel to see Pastor Michael, or he would have to travel to see them, now with blessed items and available technology, Pastor Michael Louri can help a lot more people, even across the globe.
