This is a subject many dare to embark upon, however, it so necessary to discuss.
A few years ago, I remember the Holy Spirit began to teach me about different types of spirits due to the ministry I have been given. Many in my circle of ministry did not mention different types of spirits, at least not to the extent God was revealing. It was one teaching I began to do on different types of spirits and their activity when the Holy Spirit spoke about witchcraft. He said, “Just because it is not talked about does not me it is not present.”
This is when I began to start my studies and inquiring the Holy Spirit even the more on what He wanted to reveal to me. It was not until I was face to face with a person that hosted the spirit of Jezebel. This was one of the most strongest battles I had to ever endure. I began to see all the traits which led me to see witchcraft working in underhanded ways that could not be discerned unless the Holy Spirit revealed it. Jezebel is extremely vicious and I personal do not encourage anyone to war against this spirit alone which in reality is a principality. One of the most used tools by those that host a Jezebel spirit is witchcraft, manipulation, and domination. Witchcraft aim is to twist the will of a person to go their way and not the way or will of the Lord. This spirit does not even want you having your own mind. It will find a way to make you feel as if you are wrong and they are right. It will also use prophecy to lead you into the trap of following them and not the Holy Spirit. This is also where money manipulation can come in at as well. Some people will go as far as manipulating people with money to bring them under their control.
Another area is in the area of help. Everyone that come to help you does not come with the right motives. Some use it to try to benefit off of you later down the road just in case you make it big at some point of your life, they will come back saying, “Look what I have done for you when you were at your lowest.” This spirit thrive off of entitlement.
The main area witchcraft attacks in is in ones health. This is why I tell people repeatedly that are ministry leaders to pray against witchcraft every single day. Many are not praying for you, but are literally praying against you. Especially when you do not preach what they like or what you are putting out is exposing their heart. The enemy will put in their heart the spirit of retaliation and backlash. Some will come out just for revenge. The heart can be very wicked if not guarded and yielded to the Holy Spirit at all times. I have personally been attacked numerous of times by the onslaughts of witchcraft in the areas of my breathing, to unable to sleep pain in my joints, even in cloudy vision. Cloudy vision in unable to see clearly the direction the Lord was leading me to. This is also mind blinding spirits. The devil will do anything to keep a born again believer from seeing clearly. This is the main aim of witchcraft. TO BLIND THE MIND!
This is why the scripture teaches us to put on the whole armor Of God. One of the warfare covering is the helmet of salvation. It is vital to use it when dealing with the war against the attacks that come against the mind.
Remember, if the enemy can get you mind, he can get you. DON’T LET THAT HAPPEN!
*The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? [Jeremiah 17:9]
* Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness. [Galatians 5:19]
*Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies.
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
*Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. [Ephesians 6:10]
*Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. [Ephesians 6:11]
*For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
*Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
*Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness. [Ephesians 6:14]
