Exposing Christian Witchcraft

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. -Galatians 5:19-21

Today I want to address a form of witchcraft that many times flies under the radar in the lives of believers and those in ministry. This subtle form of witchcraft comes from the enemy himself. It is just as dangerous of black magic or voodoo. The reason why I want to share with you this revelation is because I am sick and tired of season the enemy destroy the lives of believers. I’m sick of Christians operating in the wrong spirit without them understanding that their words and flesh driven prayers have serious repercussions. 

Are you sick and tired of being broke? Does it seem like you can’t breakthrough the invisible lid over your life? Are you constantly finding yourself and your family sick? Could it be that flesh driven prayers could result in the spiritual attacks coming against you? Could the people you trust to pray for you being cursing you and not even know it? The Bible tells us in Proverbs 18:21 that death and life are in the power of the tongue. It also tells us In Proverbs 6:2 that we are snared by the words of our mouth. Not only do we have the power to snare ourselves, but we have the power to snare others as well.

Could it be that what seems like harmless conversation is really gossip? Proverbs 16:27 tells us that an ungodly man digs up evils and it is on his lips like a burning fire. Gossip, slander, backbiting, complaining and blaming others releases an atmosphere of strife, division, failure, deception and confusion. If you have been experiencing these characteristics in your life there is a strong possibility that at the very root of it is Christian witchcraft.

Could it be that the Christian witchcraft you are experiencing is a direct result of a harvest of the words you have sown into others? Could it be that because you keep sharing things on the internet about other people in the name of political freedom is tied directly to the attacks you are experiencing? How much longer will you keep falling for this evil scheme from the enemy? What about the attacks you are bringing upon the individual that you are blasting? Is what you are doing misrepresenting Christ? As you assassinating people with your words or your posts?

The term “Christian witchcraft” sounds like an oxymoron. The reality is that it part of the works of the flesh listed in Galatians 5:19-21. So how do we deal with Christian witchcraft? Jesus tells us in Luke 6:28 to bless those who curse you and to pray for those who mistreat you. Ask the Holy Spirit to expose the individuals coming against you. Examine your own life. Are there habits that you need to break? Do you need deliverance? Release His Kingdom and His light to shine and expose all darkness. Use wisdom when sharing the delicate issues of your life. It isn’t about the number of people you can get to pray for a request. Jesus said it just takes 2 or 3 and He would show up. Don’t let just anyone lay hands on you and impart things to you. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. His job is to lead and guide you into all truth. 

At the root of Christian witchcraft is pride. Pride was the very sin that got Lucifer kicked out of heaven. He wanted to be exalted and worshipped. God kicked him out of heaven and he took a third of the angels with him. If pride is at the foundation the enemy will build upon it with jealousy and lust.

If you have a hard time celebrating others then it’s time for you to examine your heart to make sure you are in the faith. You are not too far from God’s grace. In fact, where sin abounds grace abounds even more. It is the kindness of God that leads us to repentance. It’s time to ask the Lord to crush the foundation of pride in your life. The Lord will rebuild it with one of unconditional love and humility. 

If you can’t seem to find satisfaction perhaps lust is the evil spirit keeping you bound. Lust is more than just sexual. Lust is desiring something or someone more than you desire God. Lust reveals the idols in your life. What are you putting before God? Many would answer that they are putting themselves before the Lord. Now that you know what’s at the root it is time to deal with it.

Who do you belong to? Galatians 5:24 tells us that those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Just as Christ was raised to life you are raised to life with Him. The power of the Christ is the only remedy to overcoming the power of the enemy. Jesus Christ is the only way out of a life of bondage. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free! Is your flesh dead yet? Are you walking according the flesh or are you walking in the Spirit? God’s grace empowers you to live a life free from sin. 

I submit to you today that the answer to overcoming Christian witchcraft is submitting yourself completely to the Lord Jesus Christ and living out the plan He has for your life. God’s resurrection power is the most powerful force on the planet. Christ’s resurrection power is pure love. Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Receive the love of the Father. Let it permeated deep within you. Now begin to love one another just as Christ loves you.

I robbed myself. I scoffed every time I turned on Christian television. I just knew some how it would be about taking up an offering. So I would turn the Christian TV on and tell everyone in the room “wait for it….wait for it…wait for it….” and BAM! There it would be. Send $444.44 for your blessing. Ridiculous, just ridiculous.

Because I personally know many ministers who end their services like this, I knew it wasn’t out of greed as of most supposed but out of what I felt was conscious or subconscious manipulating principles they had LEARNED from other more greedy people who didn’t have the right ambitions or intentions.

I became cynical towards any prosperity message no matter how rich the message was(pun intended). It wasn’t until this last year that I sat on my dad’s couch watching yet another “send in your love gift” promise program, that I realized all the characteristics of a poverty minded person that they spoke of perfectly aligned with my current place in life. I was living in less than 1000 sqft. crammed with 5 children and my wife, living off food stamps, working harder and harder with very little to show for it. Seemed like something ALWAYS arose and took any income we gained. Pockets with holes. I almost felt cursed financially.

Now, I can’t say the message I was hearing on the tv that day delivered me, but it opened my eyes that something was majorly wrong. I DID have a poverty mentality and had quit giving unto the Lord. The poverty mentality is horde all you get because you might have little(yet again), or not have anything at all for tomorrow. When we quit giving, we quit seeing favor and blessing. Period. I didn’t realize we had quit all together. It was a slow fade. I thought we had just “scaled back” a little on our tithes but the truth was, we had quit altogether.  The more we scaled back in giving, somehow the less we had to give so it often came down to ultimatums. Give or have gas in the car. Give or have electricity in our home.

AND THAT IS WHERE SATAN WANTS YOU AND I. He wants you bound by having to choose worldly provisions over heavenly provision. It’s the same thing as what happened in the garden. His lie is that God is not enough, that you need something you do not current have in Him(as if all things weren’t in God already). He loves to see Israel once again choose mans way over God. Man’s government over God’s. Man’s way of peace of mind (holding on to stacks of money in the bank) over God’s which is truth He who is ALL IN ALL and supplies all of our needs.

It was time to break free! I started sowing. You should remember back when I spoke about it in my emails if you’ve been connected with us. We were delivered. It was hard to give at first, but once we realized that He was working all things together for our good financially, it became a joy to give again. Mini harvest after mini harvest we were back in our right minds about giving. The mind of Christ.

All it took was a step of faith in Our Father to be the provider He has promised us. We emptied our bank account…a few times in fact. We sowed sacrificially as unto the Lord and since then have entered a 2000+ sqft home, had increase in our business, increase in ministry opportunities and more. He is faithful and I boast in Him!

Let God be God in your finances. Don’t you feel that deep deep drawing right now that it’s time to make a change. If nothing changes, nothing changes. I want to encourage you to sow a seed right in the grace of this moment for financial breakthrough. Don’t be cynical like I was and rob you and your loved ones from total financial peace like my family has. Surrender to the government of God and step out in faith. Do it now, no matter what the circumstance looks like.

Satan’s goal is to keep you distracted by the circumstance so much that you say “I’ll do it later, or I just can’t.” – Sow SOMETHING and name it breakthrough. 

Release His hands into your finances. Sow a seed in this moment of grace for breakthrough. If you’d like to sow into Spirit Fuel, I promise you we are good soil. Step into breakthrough and choose Our Father as your provider and provision. Sow a seed of $45 right now or any amount you feel led to give.

"I’M GOING TO REFRESH YOU ON A BREEZE!"

by Jo Ellen Stevens

Hello Spirit Fuel Readers. I wanted tell you a story about something that happened to me a few years ago in a Summer not unlike many Summers that My husband and I had for many years of learning God’s provision. This particular Summer it had been very hot and humid and truly it seemed like one of the leanest Summers that we had in a long time.

OUR TIME OF NEED

We were Pastoring a small church at the time and we both had been working at the school for many years and each Summer we had no jobs and had to trust God for the provision for how we were going to live through that few month period. This summer was no different. At the end of the year I would always start getting this feeling of almost panic wondering how we were going to make it that Summer. This particular Summer when that panic hit me, God said “ I want you to take the money that you have in your purse and send it to a particular ministry. I was like “but God that is all that I have and it may have to last….”

THE NEW BREEZE

Being Obedient, I went on-line and sent the money that He told me to. A few weeks later, I was outside in what seemed like the hottest day of the year. There was not a breeze to be felt, when suddenly, this little cool breeze came across me and I said out loud.,“THANK YOU GOD FOR THAT BREEZE!” He spoke to me that day as I said that and said. “I AM GOING TO REFRESH YOU ON A BREEZE DAUGHTER.” I thought, “what could this mean? I got up from there and went into the house that day and no sooner did I get in there until the phone rang. It was a member of our church and the woman on the other end said “my husband and I want to buy you a new car! We were looking at a couple of them and saw a particular one and it was called a “PLYMOUTH BREEZE!” That night we went to get the BRAND NEW RED BREEZE and we drove around and around that town in it, feeling like millionaires. The Lord at one point told me to look at the new car next to me and said, “see that car” and I said, “yes Lord!” he said, “the blessing of the Lord it makes rich and he adds no sorrow with it!” I said, “What do you mean Lord?” He said. Well, you have a new beautiful car and so do they but, they have a payment book and you do not!"  

You see, what it’s all about is obedience! Obedience and thanking God for the small things like the little breeze that came over me that day and obedience even in the small things. I didn’t think my small offering that day would do anything, but in my obedience we reaped a great harvest and refreshing!” Not only that, God let me know that year that he saw and he heard my plight! This is why when God says sow a seed, he has bigger plans for it than you can imagine or think. My friends, obedience is key! I want to encourage you, that if you are reading this and feel led to sow a seed into this ministry, that God is faithful to refresh you and show himself strong in your time of need! Not only that, He always gives back, pressed down, shaken together and running over!” He wants to show you His faithfulness in your life and wants you to know that you know that it came from Him!
