IDENTIFYING CHRISTIAN WITCHCRAFT

 

I have come to the following check list, based upon years of prayer, discernment and observations of people's behavior. This of course is not all encompassing, but it manifests one main branch of deception.

 

In the following list, you may substitute the phrase “obedience to what you hear & see" for obedience to a voice, dream, vision, revelation, supernatural experience, etc.

 

Christian witchcraft is present:

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) demands its own way.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) demands others to conform.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) uses force to change another's opinion.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) uses manipulation to change another's opinion.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) uses control to change another's opinion.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) uses soul power, control, power struggles, domination, intimidation, argument, debate to change another person.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) creates laws in which to govern ones life that bypasses love for God, for others and for self.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) places the following of rules over relationships with people.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) causes a baby Christian to stumble.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) causes someone else condemnation for not obeying.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) changes the rules midstream.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) contains a stronghold of control, over the listener or his behavior.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) promotes dominating rather than loving the weaker brother.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) does not recognize or yield, or respect or honor another’s free will or freedom of choice.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) speaks of master and slave relationship with the Lord in place of husband and wife.

 

• When obedience (to what you hear & see) says rules are more important than offending people.

 

• When following (what you hear & see) defies your own discernment, instinct, wisdom.

 

• When following (what you hear & see) places seeking a title, ambition, or leadership over servant hood and graciousness in sitting at the feet of others.

 

• When following (what you hear & see) places seeking one’s own personal will and decision over the will of the group.


• When following
(what you hear & see) accuses when exposing the truth.

 

• When following (what you hear & see) has no mercy when exposing the truth.

 

BOTTOM LINE:  Christian Witchcraft is evident in what you hear & see when God's love is not present or applied.

 


 

WORD TO PONDER EXPOSING CHRISTIAN WITCHCRAFT

I have opened your eyes to observe, perceive and finally understand the spirit of witchcraft that has infiltrated and plundered many of My people. This deception has grown deeper than mere controlling personalities. This spirit masquerades as My Holy Spirit and I grieve over many who have listened to the voice of such, to follow its commands. They believe this intruder is the voice of the Good Shepherd.

 

Listen and heed the following. For in its wisdom is the exposure of such a spirit. Once you see this operate in a person, you will forever have your eyes and ears opened to know the truth. The truth shall set you free and answer many unanswered questions.

 

A spirit of witchcraft demands obedience to a voice. The voice demands its own way and demands others to conform. Controlling is the primary manifestation of such a spirit and it orders compliance. When others do not conform, anger, intimidation, judgment, condemnation, accusation and criticism are manifest. There is no mercy or yielding from a controlling spirit. In contrast, My Spirit recognizes, respects and honors another’s free will and freedom of choice. Rather than seeking to dominate, it bows low to love and heal and minister. Remember the voice of the Good Shepherd leads the way, He does not push and drive.

 

A controlling spirit is driven to be the center of attention. It is driven by ambition to seek a title and leadership. In contrast, My Spirit bows low to serve the needs of the hurting and weak. My Spirit is contrasted by loving servanthood and humility. My Spirit recognizes My good gifts even in the weakest vessels, and is blessed to sit at the feet of others.

 

Observe the words of such a one, for it speaks of master and slave relationship in place of a loving Husband for His wife. It creates structures and rules in which to govern ones life or ones fruit. It promotes following rules over relationships with people. And when the rules fail, they change in midstream, defying all logical memory of past standards once enforced.

 

The knowledge of such a spirit is to be used for prayer over the person taken captive by such a one. Yes, use your kingdom keys of binding and loosing to take authority over this spirit as it manifests. And love the person back to health. Remember a servant of the Lord is not to argue, but be gentle to teach those who oppose the truth. Through prayer and loving attention, their hearts may melt and come into repentance, seeing the truth.

 

“I assure you, anyone who sneaks over the wall of a sheepfold, rather than going through the gate, must surely be a thief and a robber! For a shepherd enters through the gate. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they recognize his voice. They won't follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don't recognize his voice.” (John 10:1-5 NLT)

 

 


PRAYING WITHOUT CHRISTIAN WITCHCRAFT


Some Christians ignorantly use their authority wrongly by using soul power and influence over others, through prayer and the power of decree. Christian witchcraft is when one uses decree and authority to override people’s will. Be very careful about how you pray over people.

 

Mostly when I pray, it is when I hear something from the Lord, and then I pray into it. They are usually things where when I understand the season we are in, then I pray for the tools to get through it. They are things like courage, peace, understanding, guidance, revelation, help, protection, and the list goes on.

 

For example, I received a vision of a huge glistening white ocean liner. It was made of the identical material that I have seen before that was armor on God’s army. I saw the ship had been at the dock and was now finally moving forward towards the bay. So prayers into that would be, letting go of the past and what is at the dock, the spiritual tools of direction to go, the provision while on board, the weather, the water, everything needed to take the journey etc, etc.

 

If I hear something specific about a person as to what they are doing, I pray more specifically for the tools that I am inspired they need. If I know the person needs dominion taken, I bind the enemy and break off the assignments against that person then I counterbalance what has been broken off with the opposite spirit. For instance if the enemy plans death, then I bind and break it and loose abundant life. If he plans a lie, then I use my authority and then loose truth. This stops the opposition and looses the person to move into what they are needing to move forward in God. Sometimes when I take authority against the opposition, I pray scriptures against the enemy and on behalf of the person, declaring His Word to be released into their lives. If I have heard a rhema Word about the person sometimes I release that as a counterbalance against the demonic attempt.

 

Matt 6:6-13 NKJV

But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

"Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:

 

Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come., Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

THE ROOT OF BITTERNESS & FALSE PROPHESY

Quotes From Bob Jones Tape (Prophesy)

 

[This was from a Word to Everett WA.]

Bob Jones

http://www.bobjones.org/

 

• There is a religious darkness over this area. I want men that will bore a hole through the 2nd heaven. To bring light down again. When He brings light, you got to keep boring. The Lord showed me that you are trying to press through with a dull bit. The angels were pushing the enemy back so that you can break through. They are not going to help you break through, they are pushing it back so you can break through. It is a partner, a marriage. Once you bore that hole through, the 3rd heaven, revelation, the light of God. There’s going to be a breakthrough. I’ve seen the hole punched.

 

• I’ve never seen the root of bitterness come out as easily as it does here. Always when there is the root of bitterness, there is all kinds of false prophesy. And deception in prophesy. The delusion of grandeur goes right into it. There were people that were anointed years ago and then they got bitter and what they are bringing now is bitter waters. If there isn’t a repentance there, they are going to miss it and become the persecutors of the anointing. So what they will actually be using is sorcery or foolish prayers. You can kill a serpent tongue in people by showing it to them. Those that love Christ will cut it off themselves. It is time that the teachers show them.

 

• The snake of religion is legalism, opinion, judgment, debate and criticism. Christianity is mercy and grace.



 


POEM: DISCERN THE HEARTS

 

From out of the mouth, the heart does spring

Bitter or sweet, words have drawstrings.

Anger once simmered now does boil.

Resentment nurtured now hate toils.

 

Be careful of what words are pure

For mouths speaking have great lure.

Listen well and you will know

How to discern all that’s in tow.

 

Birds of a feather flock together.

Listen to their songs of weather.

Some are shrill, some are sweet,

Some are quiet, nice and neat.

 

You will discern the spirit inside

When you listen to what resides.

Heart’s with wounds, heart’s grown cold,

Hearts with control, all too bold.

 

Hearts are manifest through their words.

Pray for them and what is heard.

Your prayers will heal all gone awry

I hear Your prayers over hearts that sigh.

 

Heb 12:15 AMP

Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another], to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God's grace (His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing), in order that no root of resentment (rancor, bitterness, or hatred) shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many become contaminated and defiled by it—
