Prayer Warriors Needed: Witch Coven Planning Hexing Ceremony Against Kavanaugh

Fox News is reporting that a Witch Coven is planning a hexing ceremony on Saturday October 20, 2018 from 7:00-10:00 PM in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets to the event are being sold for $10.00 and proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

You may think I am joking, you may think there is no way this is real. I am not, and it is. In several articles I have written about the forces of Satan working right out in the open in America as no one blinks an eye. This is just the latest example.

If you are a Christian I am not sure what you believe about witchcraft. You may think magic isn’t real or it’s all just nonsense… but do you know what the Bible teaches? Witchcraft is a form of adultery that dabbles in dark arts and mysticism, and those who practice it arouse the anger of The All Mighty God:

2 Chronicles 33:6
6
 He sacrificed his children in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced divination and witchcraft, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, arousing his anger.

Leviticus 19:31
31
 Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.

Revelation 21:8
8
 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually
immoral, 
those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

The warnings against witchcraft are peppered all through scripture and people need to take it very seriously. Now I am not suggesting we re-open the Salem Witch Trials, however we need to use our most powerful weapon against these evil forces… prayer.

While I think it would be amazing to have a group of strong Christians arrive at this event and rebuke the forces of darkness in the name of Jesus Christ, we must not limit ourselves or God’s power with geography.

Next Saturday on October 20th, from 7-10 PM would you join me in prayer rebuking any dark magic these witches conjure?

You do not have to pray for three hours, just pray during that time. Wherever you are in the world, it doesn’t matter. The power of prayer will crush the enemy when faithful Christians band together in faith.

So do me a favor, hit the like button if you want to join me in prayer. Next, share this article on your social networks and let’s see just how may Christians will join us.

Pray Warriors, where are you?

Chicago man, self-described Satanist, loses latest battle to remove ‘In God We Trust’ from U.S. money

“Kenneth Mayle, 36, filed a federal lawsuit in May 2017 against the U.S. government, arguing that carrying around the currency forces him and others like him to spread a religious message that conflicts with his beliefs; according to court papers, he is a practitioner of “non-theistic Satanism.” – Emphasis added.

Full Article: Chicago man, self-described satanist, loses latest battle to remove ‘In God We Trust’ from U.S. money – Chicago Tribune


What I find most interesting about this article is not that he filed this lawsuit, or that he lost, but rather he refers to himself as a non-Theistic Satanist?! As in, does not believe in a God or gods.

This guy must be very confused to worship Satan on one hand and deny the existence of God on the other…. say what? Now he does worship the Father of Lies, who loves to confuse and misdirect, but I really thought his followers were exempt from this just a little.

As for “In God We Trust” being a promotion of Christianity, how can we possibly hear this argument from the left? They are the same group proclaiming we are NOT a Christian nation and that our Country was never founded on Christianity… and then out of the other side their mouths they scream “separation of Church and State!”

Folks you can’t have it both ways, either admit we ARE a Christian nation and then we can talk about the motto or don’t and everyone have a nice day.

Breaking the Vicious Cycle of Sin

new-f-omartian

For many years as a Christian I struggled with the same sins over and over. This bothered me a great deal, why couldn’t I get past this? Why couldn’t I stop!? God why won’t you take this from me?? These are questions I asked myself repeatedly.

When I looked to scripture there were countless warnings against sin and even the specific issue of repeating sin. Proverbs 26:11 says “Like a dog that returns to his vomit is a fool who repeats his folly.” Here that behavior is referred to as foolishness, but elsewhere it is warned against with stronger words like in Hebrews 10:26For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins“. That sounds pretty scary… but notice the language in Hebrews… “sinning deliberately”, the Bible makes a clear distinction between sin that you stumble into and sin that you plan and carry out.

In this article I want to share some tips with you that have helped me overcome repeated sins from my past.

  1. Learn to hate your sin. Some Christians think we should never have hate in our hearts, but that is not true. Some hate is righteous, and we should learn to hate the things that God hates and love the things that God loves. Zechariah 8:17, Psalm 5:4-5, Proverbs 13:5 (Why does God hate sin? – answer here)
  2. Take sin seriously. In American today we live in a hyper-Grace world where Christians sin repeatedly, over and over… the same old sins again and again while they “rest in the Grace of the Lord”. If we love God as we claim to, it should grieve our hearts to sin against Him, and while YES his Grace IS sufficient… this should never be used as a “get out of jail free” card by Christians. Romans 6:23, James 4:17, Mark 7:20-23, 1 John 3:4, James 1:15
  3. Identify and avoid triggers. Every sin in your life is preceded by temptations which have triggers, in other words, something that sends your mind down the path towards sin. For example, I may be standing in the grocery check out lane and see a magazine cover with a scantily clad woman. This is a trigger of lust that I am well aware of, so I have trained myself to keep my thoughts and eyes elsewhere when I am standing in those isles. Triggers can be anywhere and everywhere, the more you can identify and avoid… the stronger your defenses to temptations will become.
  4. Confess your sins to another. The Bible has many verses instructing us to confess our sins to one another, the reason… sin thrives in darkness. When you bring your sin to light it loses most of its hold over you. This could be a very scary thought but once you do it, you will begin to experience freedom from those chains that bind you. James 5:16, 1 John 1:7, James 5:14-15
  5. Assemble and accountability team. Any Christian who struggles with continued sin, should have an accountability team, a small group of trusted brothers or sisters in Christ. Their job is to be there for you, when you need them. You should have them on speed dial and when you begin to feel the temptations overcome you… CALL someone. Some simple rules… they should ALWAYS be the same sex as you and they should be spiritually mature enough to loving and truthful with you… even when it hurts your pride. Lastly you need to be open and honest with your team about the depths of your struggle. If they don’t know the extent of the problem, they won’t be properly equipped to help you fight.

You might think I purposefully set out to create lists with 5 items, but this time it just happened LOL. If you have had success over repeated sin in your life, what are some of the ways you have achieved it? Would you share your ideas in the comments below so others can grow in Christ as you have?

The Night A Demon-Possessed Woman Walked Into Our Church

Do you believe in demons? As a Christian you should and as a non-believer I don’t expect you do. However I can tell you from multiple real world encounters that demons are very real and all around us in an unseen spiritual realm. In two cases I have met them face to face in the human hosts they possessed. In both cases the demons fled in the name of Jesus.

Journal Entry - Demon Possessed Woman - Christian JournalingThe story I want to share with you here happened on Thursday April 6, 2017. Many years ago I learned the value of journaling and have been keeping a running record of spiritual events in my life ever since. It is a great way to look back on your journey towards Christ, learn some lessons, recall some important details or just reminisce. If you don’t already I highly encourage it, but I digress.

On that Thursday we were having an addiction recovery group at my home church, it starts at 6:30 PM and goes to about 9 or so. On this particular evening we had about eight other people in this group besides myself. This group of Christians represented many different levels of maturity in Christ and time celebrating sobriety.

It was about 7:30 when a very distraught woman entered the church and walked up to our recovery group. She was probably in her 20-30’s, a white woman who was obviously high on some very powerful drugs…most likely Crystal Meth. As she stood there she seemed very weak, so we asked her if she was there for recovery and wanted to join us. She could not respond in any way we could understand, her speech was badly garbled. She seemed like she very much wanted to speak, but something was holding her back. We then offered her an open chair next to mine and she slowly sank into the chair.

As the group continued I kept an eye on her, and she displayed typical drug addicted behaviors… eyes darting around the room, head rolling, slouching into her chair. After several minutes of sharing from other group members, Brother Larry came back to her and asked her name and why she was there. Again she desperately wanted to speak, but nothing intelligible came out.

There is power in the name of Jesus

At this point I didn’t feel as though a drug was everything she was dealing with, and I wanted to challenge her to see what I could discover. So I leaned over in my chair and said very clearly and straight forward “Do you know who Jesus Christ is?”

The reaction was immediate. She suddenly turned her head and looked right into my eyes, sat straight up in her chair and with great strength stood up abruptly. No more weakness. And with crystal clear words said to me angrily “My name is Rebecca and I am leaving”. She then turned and stormed out of the same door she entered. Afterwards I remember talking with other group members to get their takeaway on what just happened. Nearly everyone in the group agreed that the voice of “Rebecca” was markedly different than the first woman we spoke with.

This is an audio clip from the first Stand Tall For Christ Podcast, where I share this particular story…

How do you know she wasn’t just acting?

Is it possible she was putting on a performance. Yes. Likely? Not at all. As I stated earlier I am familiar with drug addiction and what it looks like, this woman was definitely under the influence of narcotics. Based on her reaction I believe there was something else much more powerful controlling her. If you were there in that room and witnessed her reaction to the name of Jesus Christ first hand you might be compelled to agree.

But why would a demon go into a church?

It may be a common myth that demons cannot trespass onto holy ground like a church, but that is certainly nowhere to be found in scripture. The opposite is true in my opinion… I think there are many demon oppressed people walking within the walls of a church. We won’t get into a debate here about whether a Christian can be demon possessed, I will save that for another article in the future… but spoiler alert (yes). So I believe a demon CAN walk into a church, but why would they want to?

They wouldn’t but this woman obviously did, she was seeking help and something was compelling her to seek refuge in a church. It was heartbreaking to see her desperation. But as soon as she was confronted with the name… the demon had enough.

James 2:19 ESV 

You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!

Luke 4:41 ESV

And demons also came out of many, crying, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.

Luke 10:17 ESV 

The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!”

I am no expert on demonology, but I have done some extensive reading in scripture and other books. From what I understand there are many levels of demon possession and oppression not to mention many different power levels of demons themselves (a hierarchy like the Angels in Heaven). A demon could be oppressing a person by constantly putting thoughts into their ears, and thereby influencing their decision making process… or take full possession and control of the host. In between is a wide array of symptoms and behaviors that could be displayed by the victim. The reason I start here, is that in America we have this idea of demon possession we get from movies of contorted women walking backwards up walls. Whereas the much more common forms of demonic oppression/possession widely go either unnoticed in our culture or worse yet… mislabeled as a mental health disorder.

I don’t expect this story to have any effect on skeptics, I know I would have brushed it to the side rather quickly in my days as an Atheist. It is my hope however to show believers who haven’t yet experienced demonic activity, that they are very real. Your faith is not in vain, that much I can assure you.

Stay Strong & Stand Tall
