“Welcome to witchcraft season. This is the time of year when people start attacking and accusing you for no reason, rebelling against authority, and otherwise walking in the flesh. Take authority over it in the name of Jesus. Don't bow to the intimidation and manipulation. And by all means, don't tap into it! I'll be writing more about this next week.”

On Oct. 2, I offered that simple exhortation on my Facebook page. Of course, I was flooded with responses from the saints—some of whom were battling witchcraft in that moment and some of whom had never heard of spiritual witchcraft. I believe witchcraft is one of the powers in the hierarchy of demons Paul listed in Ephesians 6:12. Just as the Holy Spirit is the power of God, witchcraft is a power of the enemy.

Webster's Dictionary defines witchcraft as an irresistible influence or fascination—and the Bible warns us not to be bewitched: “O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth? Before your eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified” (Gal. 3:1)


Obviously, there is a spiritual force that the Bible is warning us about. It causes us to take leave of our senses. Witchcraft releases strong confusion against our minds so that Jesus is not the clear focus of our lives. Once that happens, we are more vulnerable to the vain imaginations the enemy whispers to our souls. We have a responsibility to know about this spiritual wickedness and guard ourselves against it. With that said, here are eight signs you are under a witchcraft attack right now.

1. Confusion: Witchcraft makes you question yourself, question your friends, question your leaders—question God. When witchcraft attacks, it's difficult to make sound decisions, you may forget your keys, forget important appointments, or even forget what the Word says. When strong confusion hits your mind, you can be sure it's not coming from God. God is not the author of confusion, but of peace (1 Cor. 14:33).

2. Trouble paying attention: When witchcraft attacks, it can feel like your mind is scrambled like an egg. You have trouble staying focused on the tasks at hand. Your mind wanders to and fro. You just can't keep a train of thought or pay attention to what you are hearing or reading. It can be difficult to hear from God and discern the devil. We must walk in 1 Peter 5:8: “Be sober and watchful, because your adversary the devil walks around as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

3. Wanting to hide in your cave: I like my cave. I like being alone with God, but when I feel tempted to hide in my cave rather than face the world—when I feel like David when he said, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! For then I would fly away and be at rest” (Ps. 55:6)—I know I'm under attack. When Jezebel sent a messenger of fear with a word curse threatening Elijah's life, he ran scared and left his servant behind, sat in a cave and wished he was dead. That's a witchcraft attack.

4. Forgetting who you really are: You are a child of the King. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Greater is He who is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). You are blessed coming in and blessed going out. Everything you put your hand to prospers. That's your legal position. But when witchcraft attacks, you feel like a worthless worm. You forget who you are in Christ, have little to no interest in the Word, church, praise, worship or the like. You may feel guilt, condemnation or self-pity.

5. Discouraged, depressed and ready to quit: We all get discouraged from time to time, but when witchcraft attacks, you may just want to throw in the towel; send your resignation letter to God; quit, give up, cozy up in bed and pull the covers over your head. The devil comes to wear you out (Dan. 7:25), yet the Bible commands us not to grow weary in well-doing and promises we'll reap a harvest if we don't give up (Gal. 6:9). There's the tension, but let's be clear. The devil is trying to steal your harvest. Don't let him.

A final word: As I said in my Facebook post, this is the time of year when people start attacking and accusing you for no reason, rebelling against authority and otherwise walking in the flesh. We all need to be careful about tapping into spiritual witchcraft and releasing word curses against others and ourselves.

In part two of this article, I'll share three more signs that you may be under a witchcraft attack and give you a list of specific scenarios that will open your eyes to the attack. For sake of space, if you want to learn how to battling witchcraft attacks against your mind and body, read my article “Overcoming Witchcraft Attacks Against Your Mind and Body” and check out my book Satan's Deadly Trio: Defeating the Deceptions of Jezebel, Religion and Witchcraft.

      • Angel

        Pray to to Jesus to break any generational curse from your ancestors in your blood line and break any curse from sin that you and your daughter may have caused ask for forgiveness and deliverance ask God what do I need to do to be set free from this stronghold of bondage in my life…. read up scripture talking about how you are free in Jesus name. He died for our sins we are free but we gotta know that we are free and speak it. Also you need to know your identity in Christ in order to fight in prayer you gotta know who you are. If god is for you who can be against you. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. God knew you before you were in your mothers womb. He is your strong tower he is your provider and your healer by every stripe you are healed. He is your corner stone . He is your defender. Look up verses stating who you are in Christ those are all good examples know who you are. If you have any witch or warlocks or spirit of jezebel in your bloodline cancel and ask God to release you from it in the name of Jesus. You might have to pray that prayer to be released a few times but you gotta be reading the Bible you got to have a strong prayer life you got be in a good church and be walking right in Christ so he can deliver you quickly. Most importantly you have to want to be delivered and released from the stronghold/ generational curse. Ask Jesus what do I need to do to break these chains in my life ask him to show you in your dreams through people ask him to speak to you and I guarantee he will. Ask him to forgive and release any root of bitterness or i forgiveness in your own heart ask him to reveal to you what is holding you back from making progress. On YouTube Gabriel Fernandez says some powerful prayers that can help you as well. God bless Amen

          God is going to bless you even more for speaking his word to the world. Your post really made my night and make me feel not alone!

  5. Jacobs

    No power is above the name of Jesus, use that name and quote scripture ” No weapons formed against me shall prosper..” that is the sword of the spirit. I am not afraid of the enemy ..I will go in to his camp and take what he stole from me…and see him put to shame and disgrace. So called ministers are useless in prayer and fasting they follow flesh so no deliverance take place in the church. God has give the highest authority and power and hundreds of angels. Still he tells you Fear Not , I am with you. I was surrounded by my enemies but they came in one way in short time without any warning..but few days of praying and fasting put them all in to shame, they flee in seven ways, I looked for them and found them not. Angels went in to their camps and caused great confusion and destruction…like Jonathan…only open your eyes you will see those who are with us is greater than those who are with them. God Bless You.

  7. Solomon malatji

    I am under attack by witchcraft, I feel like I lost touch with reality, my mind is working like I am dreaming. In the beginning I thought maybe I have worked too long without taking a leave and have a long rest but as time goes on I started realising that I am not tired but there is something wrong with me. Even today I still feel the same, I only disclose this to one person but she does not understand what I am talking about. I am separated with my wife and I now found it hard to love her, she comes to see me and we always fight about our previous problems. When she is away ibmiss her but she is here with me we fight. I need deliverance, can you please help me. I want my mind to work like it used to work before and I want my marriage to work again. I need to feel touch with reality. Thank you, god bless you.

    • Dolores

      See her though the eyes of Jesus. The bible says we must forgive a single person 490 times a day. The devils can mess with your mind then your thoughts messes with your emotions then your emotions mess with your heart and that’s where he wants you. Because if he can have your heart he can have your soul. Be strong in Christ for he is the God of the impossible.

    • Melissa Flowers

      Hi Solomon! I just saw your post as I was scrolling through the comments. I can completely identify with you as my marriage has been under severe spiritual attack. My husband and I met 10 years ago and were very happy. We both have a strong faith in the Lord but we were caught up in our work, caring for our children, and our health issues. The enemy definitely comes to steal, kill, and destroy. We have lost a lot of things over the past 5 years. I became disabled, he lost part of his equipment for his business, we were homeless for a while, and when things finally started to look good, we started fighting about money. I have focused on our finances so much that I have caused my husband to basically shut down. If he is gone all day, I will miss him but when he is home, I seem to have a spirit of anger and fighting that keeps arguments going. He is passive and I am aggressive. He recently went into a severe shut down mode. He has been under severe spiritual attack as he has been having accidents on his job, things breaking, losing stuff, almost getting in car accidents, and more. The more these accidents were happening, the more I would go off on him and yell at him. It wasn’t until God intervened that we are finally beginning to work on our marriage. Pray that the Lord will give you His discernment and wisdom to know what to do and say to your wife. Pray for His protection and ask Him to put the whole armor of God on you. Pray for your wife. Pray that He will draw you both closer to each other. The enemy wants to keep you feeling off, confused, frustrated, angry, and unwilling to seek the Lord in times of trouble. We tend to want to fix our problems ourselves but we need the Lord to help us. When we are weak, He is strong. I pray this helps you. I can identify with you because I have been stirring up contention in my household and He spoke to me loud and clear that I need to STOP. When He speaks, I listen. I pray it all works out for you and will pray for you and your wife. God bless! In Christ, Melissa

  8. Child of God

    I involved myself with evil craft 3 years ago, but after few months I turned backed n went back to God. Went for retreat, delivarance, prayers and made for prayer requests during masses. Currently I have been feeling soo guilty followed by anxiety and physical problems. My past is really tormenting me and the guilt is eating me up. And I can’t get the person I involved myself with out of my mind. Having fears that he might be the one pushing me spirits if fear n panic attacks.

    • Sulkykate

      Find yourself a good, Bible driven church that is centered on the truth. You are experiencing guilt and shame for straying from God. The Bible tells us that Satan is the accuser of the Bretheran. Satan is telling you that you are worthless and cannot be forgiven for your sin. Jesus forgives even the worst of sinners if they are truly repentent. The Bible says we should not look back. I don’t know how deeply you were involved with the occult. Some people need the help of a good deliverance minister to break free. You must break any soul ties to people with whom you shared occult activities. There are some good deliverance prayers on the internet where you renounce your former activities and associations. Get help with this if you need it. Jesus loves you and wants you back.

    Please can anyone help me or give me advice … but I plea to anyone reading this… please pray for my family and my father..

    Thank you

    • N

      Hi Nathan,

      I read your comment and the following sounds like a witchcraft attack:

      “a close family friend to her mother has told us that her mother had given my father “ blessed water “ apparently from the Roman Catholic Church and suggests it’s not from the church at all but from a woman they believe performs witchcraft…”

      What I would suggest is contacting a deliverance ministry that is familiar with Marine Witchcraft. The one I know of is Word of Faith Ministries International Miami – here is their website: http://www.walkinginpower.org/

      You could also try contacting the Arizona House of Healing – here is their website: https://www.hardcorechristianity.com/arizona-deliverance-center/

      Both sites have more contact information as well as a tab for submitting your prayer request specifically.

      Go to the Lord in prayer and ask him where he would like you to start.
      God Bless, N.
