Witchcraft is a counterfeit authority. It is simply using a spirit contrary to the Holy spirit to manipulate and control others.
Witchcraft has its root in the fallen nature I.e. flesh. It produces works while the Holy spirit produces fruits. See…👇🏼
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Galatians 5:19-21 NKJV
Witchcraft spirit is a very self serving spirit. It always speaks about self, me and I as exemplified in 1 Samuel 13:11-14. However prophet Samuel reveals by the spirit of God to us the nature of witchcraft. See…👇🏼
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord , He also has rejected you from being king.”
I Samuel 15:23 NKJV
Rebellion is witchcraft. Stubbornness is iniquity and idolatry.
One of the greatest problems with power seeking people is that they don’t know that spiritual authority is a very dangerous occupation. So dangerous that we should not accept it when offered unless we are sure it is God that is giving it.
If you have a calling with oil, you must wait for God to release you and not launch yourself.
Legitimate authority is only given to a man from heaven. Any other authority or influence we gain by our own manipulation will become an opening for controlling forces.
Witchcraft can also degenerate into a demonic activity controlled by demonic forces or satan.
DISCERNING OF SPIRITS
The strongest antidote to witchcraft is gift of discerning of spirits.
The discerning of spirits is a divine ability given to believers in Christ by the Holy spirit to distinguish error from truth, good from evil, reality from counterfeit, divine from demonic, spiritual from carnal.
This ability helps you to know what kind of spirit is in operation in a particular person or people in any situation in order to avert deception.
It helps you to know the spirit that motivates and moves a human being whether good or bad. (Read Acts 16:16-18).
It makes the motives of people to be naked before you.
It most especially helps a true Christian to bring security against false doctrines and false ministers. (Read Jeremiah 23:16-25)
SIGNS THAT YOU’RE UNDER WITCHCRAFT ATTACK
You’re experiencing confusion instead of peace. (Read 1 Corinthians 14:33)
You’re constantly depressed.
You’ve lost your vision and barely even remember your dreams.
You’re in despair and experience defeat.
You’re having persistent illness or pains that has defied medical solution.
People who can help you always come close with the intent of helping you but suddenly change their minds.
HOW TO SPOT WITCHCRAFT OPERATIONS
They generally make use of deception, falsehood, never straight forward, intimidation, forced authority, manipulation and seduction. To identify witchcraft beyond these basic red flags you’ll require the ability of the holy spirit.
However if you’re experiencing any of these things.
Pray with Joshua 6:1; 20-21
Every siege of darkness hovering over my life be broken down as the wall of Jericho fell down flat, in Jesus name!
I’ll be teaching on dreams and spiritual dimensions of dreams soon.
As you go today, I decree and declare that every siege of darkness and witchcraft over you is broken and rolled away into the sea of forgetfulness. Go and triumph !
