The Squatter Explosion is All About Spiritual Warfare

In America there has been an explosion of squatters coming in and taking over people’s homes. Essentially, if you want something that your neighbor has, including their home, you can take it in our society.

One squatter in Detroit shared her story, saying she was encouraged by other people to squat. She also has no intentions of moving out of the home because she’s “put a lot of work in here and spent a lot of money,” even calling herself “blessed” for stealing the neighbor’s electricity.

What if this increase of squatting is deeper than an issue in the physical, but is actually a reflection of a spiritual reality?

Grace For Purpose draws this comparison between the uptick of squatters and demons coming to occupy a person.

“Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, consecrated to God and sacred,” the video says. “So just as a squatter has no real legal right to possess a home they don’t own, a demon has no right to possess or squat on a Christian who is filled with the Holy Ghost.”

Squatters have no more right to our homes than a demon does to try to park itself in us as temples of the Holy Spirit. However, demons will still try to oppress and torment Christians, desiring to return to its former home.

Matthew 12: 43-45 reads:

When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through dry places seeking rest, but finds none. Then it says, “I will return to my house from which I came.” And when it comes, it finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and brings with itself seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there. And the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it be also with this evil generation.
