Tattoos

 

TATTOOS

Having tattoos on the body seems to be a very popular thing with young people today.  So with piercing body parts and putting in beads or rings.  Sounds like a lot of rejection and the need for admiration and acceptance. 

People in the South Pacific and Hawaii seem to crave social acceptance and almost every native has a tattoo for some reason or other, including identification with a particular tribe or group of people.  Of course, the excuse or justification for tattoos is the identification and acceptance by people from the same ethnic group and similar reasons.  Women tattoo  eyebrows, lips and so forth, for cosmetic reasons, even pastors' wives.  Heathens tattoo themselves to bring power, luck, or use it to identify themselves as belonging to a particular family or tribe.  Americans and Europeans do it for whatever reason - social acceptance, looks, identification, etc.

Tattoos are common in Malay, Indonesian, Fijian, Samoan, Vanuatu, Hawaiian and other cultures.  Military personnel in the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard consider it a tradition to have a tattoo.  Young girls in Switzerland and Bulgaria and other parts of Europe walk around with tight jeans and high blouses to show off tattoos on their lower back and rings hanging from navels and other body parts..  Yakuza in Japan use tattoos to identify members of organized crime. 

God commands us not to mark our body or disfigure it.  " (Y)e shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.  For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a holy people unto Himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth."  De. 14:1-2. 

"Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord."  Lev. 19:28.  Your body is the temple of God.  "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are."  1 Co. 3:16-17.  We are no longer heathens.  Our body is God's temple and He dwells in us by His Holy Spirit.

It is sin and can bring curses that allow evil spirits such as anger, violence and infirmity to enter.  You need to repent, ask for forgiveness, renounce your tattoos, and ask God to close the door against any evil spirits that came in because of the tattoo.  You don't have to erase it or cut it out.  Just repent and break the curses caused by the tattoo. 

Many are sick and prone to accidents because of tattoos.  Sometimes people make a vow along with the tattoo.  A young woman from New York joined the Marines and came to Hawaii.  She had many problems with her back, hips and knees and found it difficult to carry out her duties as a Military police officer.  She had a tattoo on her upper leg.  When she repented of the tattoo, and we bound up the spirits that came in because of the tattoo, the demons erupted and were cast out.  Her ailments disappeared suddenly. 

Not too long ago, a brother in Mexico had a tattoo on his left arm.  Many demons left as we prayed and bound up the spirits, commanding them to leave in Jesus' name.  He coughed for almost five minutes as demons left.  He was so surprised.  The Greek word for "spirit" is "pneuma" which means "air."  They come out through coughing, burping, vomiting, crying, etc.

To God we give all the glory!  He is our deliverer and Savior.  Repent!
