CHAPTER EIGHT

UNDERSTANDING AND CONFRONTING WITCHCRAFT OPERATIONS

Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey
departeth not; The noise of a whip, and the noise of the rattling of
the wheels, and of the prancing horses, and of the jumping chariots.
The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering
spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of
carcasses; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble
upon their corpses: Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of
the well favored harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth
nations through her whoredoms, and families through her
witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and
I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will show the nations
thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. And I will cast
abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as
a gazingstock. And it shall come to pass, that all they that look
upon thee shall flee from thee, and say, Nineveh is laid waste: who
will bemoan her? whence shall I seek comforters for thee? (Nah 3:1-
7)

Witchcraft is an ancient art and is very present and active in modern day
cities and societies including many of our churches. You need to understand
it if you are to make a success of your calling as a believer. Many ministers
scoff at witchcraft and unwittingly leave their congregations without the
much needed knowledge to deal with it and overcome it. This is a most
presumptuous and dangerous way of handling a most virulent, dangerous
and intense activity which the bible says so much about. This chapter is not
an exhaustive treatise of this very deep issue. It however is an attempt to
open your eyes to some critical basics and show how to deal with witchcraft
in the place of prayers especially during strategic seasons when witchcraft is
at its peak of activity.

The city of Nineveh a gentile city of the old testament was a very
successful center of commerce in the days of Nahum. In 862 BC, the city had
turned to God as a result of the ministry of Jonah, only to return to her ways
over a century later at about 712 BC when Nahum was sent with this warning
that shows the full picture of what was responsible for the backslidings of
this very prosperous and very large city.

Nahum identified the source of the problem as witchcraft. This one was
territorial witchcraft, that is to say witchcraft that controlled the entire
territory of Nineveh, bringing the vices of harlotry, violence and death.
Nahum called her the Mistress of witchcrafts. A mistress is defined by
Webster's dictionary as

A woman who governs; correlative to servant, slave, or subject. The female


head of a family. That which governs; a sovereign, e.g. Rome was mistress of
the world. One that commands, or has possession and sovereignty, e.g The
queen is mistress of the Indies.

So, what we have here is the evidence of rulership witchcraft that


determined the very character and destiny of families and nations selling
them to perpetual servitude, death and horrendous destruction ...the
mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her
whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. (Nahum 3:4) Its
fruit is moral decay, slavery, violence and death in abundance. ...The
horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear:
and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcasses;
and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their
corpses: (Nahum 3:3)
This then is witchcraft wickedness in its very extremities. When you see
cities or nations visited with senseless violence with resulting multiple deaths
and corpses strewn over streets or being carted around in body bags as we
see in these last days of suicide bombings, car bombings, parcel bombings,
gang warfare, genocides and ethnic cleansing, militancy and kidnappings, it
is simply the handiwork of some mistress of witchcrafts.

Witchcraft functions as a network of covens spread all over the territory.


They engage in clandestine and wicked activities working with evil powers,
charms, incantations, enchantments and the use of divination, invocations
and the casting of spells etc, etc, in order to deploy strong spiritual power to
manipulate the heavens the moon, the sun and the stars as explained in
earlier chapters of this book. The ultimate intent is to determine what
transpires in the times and seasons of the lives of the people of the territory
for their territorial objectives. These objectives include the manipulation of
the destinies, wealth, health and general well being of individuals, families,
businesses, churches and whole communities. The fruit many times is what
we have said earlier death, destruction and woes. Witchcraft as the
executive arm of satan's government is the hub of fulfillment of the words of
our savior himself who said. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and
to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that
they might have it more abundantly. (Joh 10:10)

At the personal level, witches either male or female are extremely wicked
and subtle. They drink human blood, feed on human flesh in their covens
including that of close relatives even their own children. They use human
body parts for a lot of their rituals and enchantments. Witchcraft and witches
can be very dangerous and should not be handled with kid gloves. Witchcraft
operators do not deserve kindness, pity or any such naivety prompted by
ignorant or presumptuous religious piety. Listen to our God's terse and
drastic instructions regarding witches.
Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. (Exo 22:18) ...Ye shall not eat
any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor
observe times. (Lev 19:26)

Speaking in Isiah's day, the Lord had this to say about the witchcraft
community of ancient Babylon: ...For thou hast trusted in thy
wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy
knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine
heart, I am, and none else beside me. Therefore shall evil come
upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief
shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and
desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not
know. Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude
of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast labored from thy youth; if so be
thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art
wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers,
the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save
thee from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they
shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver
themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to
warm at, nor fire to sit before it. Thus shall they be unto thee with
whom thou hast labored, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they
shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee. (Isa
47:10-15)

Witchcraft gods and enabling deities

It is good to remember that witches invoke a number of very strong demonic


spirits named after ancient gods of past civilizations. Some of the names
they invoke include the following:

The horned god Pan is one. Another is the ancient Greekian moon goddess
Diana (also known as Artemis) frequently invoked during the new moon to
wield the crescent moon as a bow (called the bow of Diana) for shooting
moon arrows, which in practice these are strong demonic spiritual weapons
of death, at unsuspecting victims. Others include the ancient Greek goddess
Hecate also a virulent messenger of death invoked during the last phase of
the moon to use the last crescent moon as a so called sickle of Hecate to
slay the unsuspecting. Incubus (male sexual demons) and Succubus (female
demons) are also part of the pantheon who are used to sexually assault
women and men respectively in their dreams. There are several others of
these gods of the witches and some of them are prominent at various
seasons of the year such as during the solstices and the equinoxes or so
called witchcraft sabbaths such as Samhain, Saturnalia, Imbolc, Lamas,
Yuletide, Osatra, Halloween etc.

Witchcraft operators make use of four basic elemental powers as follows:

Air at the east; Fire at the south; Water at the west and Earth at the north.
It is important to note that they invoke spirits from these four cardinal points
of the earth for power. In addition to these four elements of the world, there
is also a fifth realm in the non visible or spirit world which they simply refer
to as the quintessence. These five elements are also called the 'five
manifestations of universal energy'. They also claim that the astral
plane where they conduct a lot of their spiritual flight paths is divided into
seven occult divisions.

Witchcraft uses pots called Cauldron for a lot of their enchantments. This
cauldron concept is where they cook their demonic herbs, conduct
enchantments, cast spells and even symbolically cook parts of the anatomy
of their victims thus inflicting terrible afflictions, disablements and even
death. It is a magical pot frequently used for destiny manipulation and
exchange.

Witchcraft also uses symbols to deal with its victims. These include pins,
padlocks etc. These when locked or fastened in secure places will result in
the victims life or circumstance being locked in an undesirable cycle or state
that seem irremediable. They also use animal familiars to gain access into
the secure privacy of their victims for maximum harm to the victim.

Suggested Prayer Guidelines for Dealing with Witchcraft

Witchcraft is basically a force operated from altars and with the principles of
priesthood. The good news is that any truly born again blood washed child of
God is a priest operating from a very much more superior altar than that of
any witchcraft coven. The important thing here therefore is to understand
your priesthood as a believer and to operate at that level. This is where
knowledge is vital. Follow the under listed guidelines as you pray with other
believers regularly especially in the various seasons as taught in this book.

1. Bind and destroy the evil powers of the witchcraft gods such as
Hecate, Diana, Artemis, Lilith, queen Isis, Osiris, the horned gods (Pan),
Incubus and Succubus spirits etc that are working against your life or
your territory. Spiritually break their powers and controlling influence
over your life and or territory.

2. Pray and Prophesy destruction upon every throne of witchcraft that


may be working against you or your territory from any of these basic
witchcraft strongholds The heavens, the waters, the graveyard or the
earth.

3. Pray to destroy all negative transmissions from the so called five


witchcraft satanic manifestation of universal energy that are released
against your life or territory i.e. earth, fire, water, air and quintessence.
Bind and destroy the spirits of their so called four elements of life (i.e.
the spirits of the earth, water, air and fire).

4. Pray and prophesy into the so called seven occult divisions of the astral
plane and command every witchcraft influence or powers working from
there to be visited with the destructive fire of God's Holy Spirit.
Remember that God hates witchcraft.

5. Pray to destroy every spiritual pot (Cauldron) working against you, our
family or territory. Break all cauldron influence over your life, your
destiny and matters.

6. Destroy by prayer every invocation, incantation, mantra, enchantment,


spell, pins, padlocks and charms directed against you or your territory.
Command a reversal of the intent of the adversary and enforce the
liberty purchased at the cross. Insist that every nail or pad;lock
fastened in any secured place against your life, your destiny or
progress be uprooted and destroyed by the fire of God's wrath.

7. Destroy by strong prayer and scriptural proclamation all monitoring


devices, their communication lines, spiritual eyes and animal familiars
that are working contrary to your life or the territory you represent.

May the Lord strengthen you to effectively watch at this high level of spiritual
contention of our day.
