A coordinated witchcraft attack against Donald Trump? I got a call on Thursday afternoon from Dave Kubal, president of Intercessors for America, that demanded my attention.
With urgency in his voice, Kubal explained about a worldwide call for witches—and those willing to attempt witchcraft for the first time—to cast a spell harming Donald Trump.
According to IFA, the ritual is to be done at the stroke of midnight on waning crescent moon ritual days, which are February 24th (midnight, Friday evening), March 26th, April 24th, May 23rd, June 21st (especially important as it is the summer solstice) etc. until Trump leaves office.
Another month, another conspiracy theorist claiming the end of the world is coming.
You may be rolling your eyes right now, but the reality is scads of unsuspecting people are buying into this bombastic banter. We need to pray for more discernment in the body of Christ. When the world witnesses this goofy manifestation of the “prophetic,” it makes genuine prophets seem illegitimate.
Let’s debunk these false prophetic utterances before we pray:
This morning in prayer, I had a vision of myself standing in Cologne, Germany. It looked like a place my foot had tread over 10 years ago—the Cologne Central Station with the historic cathedral nearby.
The image was vivid and steady. I saw people moving about the square. Although the scene was calm, I felt an urgency in my spirit to understand the sudden vision of Germany’s largest city. I scanned headlines and was surprised.
What I learned was this: In the past several days, there have been communication failures in the nation’s airline industry. Germany fighter jets had to intercept a London-bound flight as a result. The Cologne library has opened its doors to refugees.
Also this week, a Syrian refugee is on trial for an Islamic State bomb plot in Germany. Meanwhile, German police are warning refugees not to attend the carnival celebrations starting on Thursday, only later to apologize. But German cities are banning trucks during carnivals amid terror fears.
When my friend told me she saw a vision of herself with a big squid lodged atop her head, I knew enough about the unseen world to understand a spiritual attack was underway.
What I didn’t know was that a sneaky squid spirit would soon start stalking me.
Right about now, you might be scratching your head and asking, with all sincerity—or with all mockery—“What in the world is a squid spirit?” Essentially, it’s a spirit of mind control but its affects go way behind what you would think.
You keep hitting the same wall. You are practicing sin and can’t stop. These are two of the five signs you might need deliverance I shared with you a few weeks ago.
Of course, those aren’t the only signs of demonic activity in your life. Demons can oppose you from the outside, but they can also oppress you from the inside.
When it comes to spirits at an individual level, I subscribe to the late Dr. Lester Sumrall’s theory of demon possession as outlined in his Demonology & Deliverance manual. I believe there are seven stages of demonic influence: regression, repression, suppression, depression, oppression, obsession and, possession.
For the record, I do not believe a Christian can be demon possessed. Jesus came to set the captives free and He has given us a command and the authority to go along with it to cast out demons.
Angels are ministering spirits sent to serve the heirs of salvation (Heb. 1:14). Angels help us, protect us, send messages to us, unfold revelation, guard us and more. Angels are all around us.
Since the Lord gave me the prophetic word about the angels of abundant harvest, I’ve been studying angels more and more. While God must remain the center of our focus—we need to study His will, character and ways—we’d be foolish to ignore what the Bible says about angels.
The Bible mentions angels and other heavenly creatures over 370 times. They appear as men. They appear in dreams. They appear in brilliance. They appear in visions. They appear in trances. They have walked and talked with men on the earth. They move at the speed of light.
Like angels, demons are created beings. When Lucifer rebelled and was cast out of heaven, along with a third of the angels that followed his rebellion. Demons are fallen angels. They are evil spirits that work against God’s will. The late Derek Prince called them persons without bodies—and Jesus cast them out everywhere He went.
1 John 3:8 tells us, “For this purpose the Son of God was revealed, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” And Acts 10:38 says, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
You can be demonized in your emotions, in your mind, in your body or your physical lusts. But how can you tell if you need deliverance? Read these five tell-tale signs of demonic oppression below, but remember—Jesus came to set the captives free.
Every morning, I gather with hundreds of people to pray prophetically in our Mornings With the Holy Spirit prayer calls. This was birthed out of a week-long prayer series for my devotional by the same name over two years ago.
These calls have grown increasingly prophetic in nature. So much so that I complied a CD of prophetic songs, sounds and decrees that defy impossibilities called Dream Wild from words released in those early morning devotions. Below I’m offering a transcript of one of my prayer sets. I know this will inspire and encourage you!
Some of you are frustrated with your own spiritual growth. You’re pressing, you’re pressing, you’re pressing. But the Lord would say to you, remember, you are not the one who causes yourself to grow. For you are growing in my grace. And even though you can’t see it with your eyes, know that I’ve done a deep work, says the Lord, and I’m continuing to do this work in your heart. I am rooting you and grounding you deeply into My kingdom, deeply into My Son.
The anticipation leading up to Inauguration Day was intense. From threats of violent protests—more than were arrested and police were reportedly injured during the fray—and prophetic warnings from many leaders in the body of Christ urging prayer, it’s no wonder there was a sound of victory when Donald J. Trump officially stepped into the office of President of the United States.
But in that moment, there was more than the sound of victory—there was the sound of lions roaring in the spirit. When Trump decreed and declared so emphatically, "There should be no fear. We are protected, and we will always be protected ... by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God” roars echoed in the spirit.
It wasn’t Trump’s roar. It wasn’t the roar of false prophets with conspiracy theories that try to wring money from your pocket with fearful predictions that offer no hope of redemption or mercy.
I sense angels being dispatched to interrupt the prince of the power of the air’s perversion even now. Let’s keep praying.
As I was praying about what to share at Potus Shield, the convocation for a group of prophetic leaders working seek the Lord and prepare for transforming revival in our nation, Holy Spirit started talking to me about the media.
“There are many voices and none without signification, but I want My voice to be the loudest one people hear in the media. I want My voice echoed with clarity so that it will ripple through the lies of the prince of the power of the air. I want My truth to be established in every sphere of society. As the righteous ones rise up in the media world, the people who listen and read what is being proclaimed will begin to discern fact from fiction, truth from lies. They will begin to understand My perspective on the matters at hand and it will resonate in the hearts of many who are sick and tired and overwhelmed with the hopelessness and despair on the airwaves and in print. Many are looking for an alternative. Many are seeking truth. Pray that the blinders would be removed. Pray that hearts would be softened. Pray that boldness would arise even among those non-believers who have a heart for the truth. Pray and keep on praying because I intend to have My way in the media. The wicked one has infiltrated the airwaves but I will have the last word.”
