Stopping Witchcraft Against America – Part 3
[My brother, Tim Sheets, has been teaching his church about spiritual warfare. I agree that it is time for us to sharpen our skills in this area. We continue our series today from that teaching.]
“The Holy Spirit is talking to the whole nation about the attack of Jezebel. He is telling us that the attack of witchcraft is rising. Be on alert.
“We know that one of the ways demons enter and work is through the ear gate. The ear is often the door. The demonic seeks whom they can devour looking for a receptive ear. Once in they can cause havoc—and it’s not innocent. If you don’t immediately deal with what you are ‘hearing’ and if you permit that spirit entry, it will cause havoc in every area of your life. Remember, its goal is to destroy. This spirit is trying to destroy our whole nation right now.
“Throughout history, the Church has had to deal with demonic attacks of witchcraft. This is not a popular thing, so the Church has more and more put its head in the sand and ignored it. However, the Bible tells us we are not to be ignorant of satan’s tactics. We are not to pretend that Hell isn’t real, that spiritual warfare isn’t real, and that the enemy hates us isn’t real. We are not to fear all this. In fact, I don’t know why we would fear it, because we have been given authority. We have the authority to bind it. We have authority to be free of it, cleanse it away, and cast it out. We can stop it from having any kind of activity in our lives. However, you cannot nap your way through it. It’s not just going to go away. You have to be alert for it and deal with it when you discern it.
“The early apostles and the early Church had to deal with this. They had to deal with it in individuals’ lives, in the Church’s life, and in the nation. The Church had to guard against it. It can cause disunity, hinder prayer, and stop the forward momentum of Kingdom advancement in the earth. The Church is to keep the atmosphere uncontaminated from any witchcraft or demon influence. The Lord said to be on guard and watch for that.”
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8; KJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Think about what you are listening to each day. Is the enemy gaining a foothold in your life through your ear gates?
Cleanse them with worship.
Read the Word of God aloud. Speak it out over yourself, your family, the Church, and this nation.
Repent of any fear of lack of control, lack of provision, or any other loss. Those are Jezebel tactics against you.
Declare, “Jezebel has been uncovered and will now be judged by the Church of Jesus Christ. I remove you and your influence from my life and from the areas God has given me authority in.”
Pray over your family, church, workplace, city, state, and nation. Be confident and make your decrees!
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I thank You for exposing Jezebel and her ways in my life today. As I read the truth stated here, I can see better what is happening. Break the effects of witchcraft off of me as I repent. I listened to the enemy go on and on about terrible things happening. So, I have allowed fear to enter through my ears and affect my thinking, and ultimately affect my actions. I have been spiraling downward recently. But, today I get up! I shake it off! My eyes are opened to what’s happening.
Forgive me my fear, doubt and unbelief. I will praise and proclaim Your goodness. I will declare Your Word and remind myself of Your love and care for me. I know You can take better care of my family than I can. You can empower Your church to get up and fight again. You can deliver America from the bondage of witchcraft. And You are! Jezebel has been uncovered and will now be judged by the Church of Jesus Christ. I remove you and your influence from my life and from the areas God has given me authority in. I declare freedom from your enticements and freedom from your lies over my life and over my nation! Thank You, Jesus! Let Truth prevail and overcome in Jesus’ name! Amen.
The Church has authority to deal with witchcraft in this nation!
