IN DAYS OF HIS POWER SERIES.
TOPIC: SUFFER NOT A WITCH TO LIVE!
Rev. Innocent Peace-Udochukwu
President Living Fountain Ministries Int’l LIFOM
”Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”
God hates witchcraft.
Practitioners of witchcraft are the enemies of God.
Witchcraft is the work of the devil, otherwise God would not have decreed against them.
God has given Christians a command to kill witchcraft.
As long as we allow witchcraft to prosper, God’s plan will not be fulfilled in our lives, ministries, marriages, national life, and businesses.
Spiritual warfare against witchcraft is a necessity and a Christian injunction
Unless you overcome witchcraft, you may not fulfil your divine destiny.
Those who practice witchcraft
are people who consider the riches of this world of greater value than their faith in God, those who have let their thoughts to sway from God because they focus on those things that are of the world and because of that they always want to dominate others wherever they are, be it in the family, town, State or country. Even in business premises and Offices, in fact where ever they find themselves theirs is to manipulate and dominate mercilessly.
Witchcraft is counterfeit spiritual authority; it is using a spirit other than the Holy Spirit to dominate, manipulate or control others.
The practice of witchcraft has dramatically increased throughout the world in recent years. One of the expressed goals of this movement is to destroy biblical Christianity.
Many Christians are presently suffering some form of attack from those who practice witchcraft. Discerning the nature of these attacks, and knowing how to overcome them, is becoming crucial for all believers.
We are exhorted not to be ignorant of the enemy’s schemes (II Corinthians 2:11). Peter warned us: ‘Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.
But resist him, steadfast in faith…’ (I Peter 5:8-9).
Understanding Satan’s schemes significantly increases our advantage in the battle.
The entire church age has been one of spiritual warfare, which is increasing as we approach the end of the age. Those who refuse to acknowledge the reality of this warfare and fight against it are being quickly overcome.
Some say witchcraft is an African magic, an African spirit, or demonic powers dominant on the African continent. But the Bible made several mentions of witchcrafts and Apostle Paul speaks of it as satanic powers that are dominant in the present world.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places”. (Ephesians 6:12).
Witchcrafts have caused unimaginable havocs and tragedies in the lives of many innocent souls. Many who are suppose to live and enjoy the benefits of life have been cut short and sent to the grave earlier than God’s original plan for them.
Many who are suppose to be lenders have been reduced to perpetual borrowers; those destined to be leaders have been sidelined to just followers; many who are suppose to enjoy their marriages have been plagued with frequent divorce and remarriage; many who are destined to be CEOs and CFOs have been reduced to mere clerical officers; many cannot even keep a job for more than a year, jumping from one job to another; churches that are supposed to grow spiritually and numerically are struggling to get by; children who are suppose to be exceptionally intelligent have been changed to gangsters and mobs on the street; talented and intelligent pastors have been dramatically overshadowed by inordinate wrong decisions; on and on the list goes.
Instead of promoting harmony and peace, witchcraft spreads terror, superstition, division, envy, and confusion.
We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against… the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil.
Witchcrafts should not been given any breathing space in our homes, schools, churches, and social gatherings.
The Bible says in Exodus 22:18 ” Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”
Keeping a witch or wizard around you is like keeping deadly scorpions on your bed. This is why effective prayer is needed to fish them out because it is a spiritual issue.
The scripture says “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” (Ephesians 6:12-18).
Dearly beloved, you cannot gamble with your prospects in life. Witches are generally very nice people. They appear as angels of light. Pray for the spirit of discernment, and be violent against them in the spirit, and God will show you great and mighty things which you do not know. Thank God for Jesus Christ! Witches can be overcome!
They can be overthrown! Jesus Christ has given us the power over them. The scripture says “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:18-19). Amen.
What a consolation! What an assurance that Jesus Christ has given to the believers!
Witchcraft powers are not to be toyed with; its agents are almost in every household, every community, every business, every association and also thrive in most prayer less enviroments..
In 2 King 9:30-37, we saw how Jezebel was thrown down from the rooftop, and her head was smashed unto death as a punishment for her many witchcrafts and sorceries.
The assignment the Holy Spirit has for you today is to spiritually throw down the Witcraft powers that have been sponsoring afflictions into your life.
Pray like this: Witchcraft powers afflicting me, collapse before me in Jesus name.
Surrender your life completely to Jesus and don’t play games.
Know who you are as a born again child of God who is RIGHTEOUS which is being in right standing with God through what CHRIST did at the cross of Calvary, don’t give the devil a foothold by allowing him to decieve you into relying on your own righteousness,
Be a word addict, compile deliverance scriptures and memorize them
Wake up at midnights and pray deliverance prayers, the type we are praying today.
In the Bible, God commanded Christians to spiritually kill witchcraft powers. Exodus 22:18: – “Thou shall not suffer a witch to live.
Therefore, Christians should organise and be organising constantly violent prayers against witches and witchcrafts in their homes, extended families, villages, towns, states and nations in order to destroy the manipulating and domineering powers of witchcrafts over them.
Under the mosaic laws, witchcraft agents were stoned to death: Leviticus 20:27: A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads.
Ancient witchcraft in your father’s house, shall receive the stones of fire in Jesus name.
Witchcraft powers blocking your breakthrough shall collapse in Jesus name
