8 Signs of Witchcraft.
God is always speaking. And he desires to have intimacy and relationship with you. This is a time and a season for you to enter into your promises and your destiny like never before. I believe the Lord wants to take you straight in. We are in a year of birthing, a year to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Every day I pray you are allowing the Lord to draw you into a place of intimacy with him. He wants to meet with you. He wants to see your face and hear your voice. He wants to awaken you in his truth, his righteousness, his shalom, his faith, his salvation, and his word. He wants to establish his truth in you, and establish you in the truth.
You’ll know the truth, and the truth will set you free. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom, there is liberty. The Lord says in his Word, Our Father has no greater joy than to know that his children are walking in the truth. We’re not going to exchange the truth of God for a lie. I hear the Lord saying tonight, The buck stops here.
He has come to uproot, tear down, destroy and overthrow any ungodly beliefs that we’ve been holding onto. He’s going to take doubt and unbelief and kick it to the curb, and it’s not coming back. Victory is in the camp of the Lord, and he has declared victory over every one of your lives. Victory corporately. Victory individually.
He has established you in righteousness. Not because of what you’ll ever do but because of who you’ve believed in. You are the righteousness of your God in Christ, right now. You’re not trying to get righteous. He’s made you righteous. You’re not trying to get holy. He makes you holy and he makes your righteous where you can live holy and righteous.
God is in the midst of us and in him there is no shadow of turning. He has taken hold of you and he’s not going to let go. How many in here have never seen the Wizard of Oz? So you know what it means, Ding dong the wicked witch is dead. I believe the Lord is going to uproot and destroy a spirit of witchcraft that has been oppressing you or your house.
I believe the word of the Lord, what he unfolded to me, what I’ve been seeing today: If I only had a brain. If I only had a heart. If I only had c-c-c-courage. We’re in a place tonight in his presence, in his glory, that he is going to renew our minds. What kind of brain do you want to have? I want to have the mind of Christ. The mind of the Spirit.
And as a believer, as a son of God, as a daughter, as a warrior bride, it is given unto us to know the mysteries of the kingdom. He says, Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. The Lord wants to send us out of here with a new heart and a new mind—renewed, renewed.
I didn’t know where we were going or the songs we were singing. But I hope you caught on. I think you have. You’re in an active environment. What we’re singing, he’s doing. So we literally stepped into Psalm 139. Where can I go from your Spirit?
I hear the Lord saying to us tonight, Gotcha! Gotcha! Because we’re going back to the beginning, back to the drawing board, back to the dream center where I thought of you and I fashioned you. And I saw you before you even existed, before anything in the bloodline grabbed hold.
I’m going to send you out of here tonight with a new attitude. Like him. That’s not just for you. It’s for me, too. Because if he’s saying it, I want it.
So I was thinking about how the movie opened. I think there was a house that came out of the sky and landed on the wicked witch of the east. Oh Dorothy. Oh Dot. What does your name mean, Dorothy? Oh gift of God. The gift of God that comes out of the sky and falls down on the enemy’s head.
Jesus said, I saw satan fall light lightning. Don’t rejoice that the demons submit to you. Rejoice that your names are written in heaven. The Lord says, Rise up in your identity. Rise up in who you are as a son of God. Rise up in your birthright. How long will you waver between two opinions?
The Lord says, There is no shadow of turning. I have made up my mind. I want you to know it’s a done deal. The Lord will visit me before I ever get up in the mornings. How many of you wake up in the night and you know he’s with you? You wake up and he’s still present. Or he’s talking to you before you ever open your eyes.
Yesterday as I lay there, before I opened my eyes, I saw a picture of an oven. I knew a cake was in the oven and the Lord said, “Fail-Proof, Betty. My plan is Fail-Proof.” Then he led me to Lamentations. I really didn’t want to read Lamentations. Jeremiah is thrown down in the pit, now. He is crying. He is lamenting because of the people and they’ve put him in a pit, tried to kill him. So he is lamenting.
But then there is a portion, The loving kindnesses. I hear the Lord saying you put him in a box and he has just blown it to bits, somebody in here. Somebody said, I am messed up.
Lamentations 3:22-25. Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed. For his compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, the Lord is my portion, my inheritance, therefore I will wait for him. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.
The loving kindnesses of the Lord. Great are his compassions. His mercies are new every morning. His compassions never fail. Compassions in Hebrew—womb! His womb never fails. I think we came out of his womb. He birthed us before we were in The Womb. And there is a war over the womb. There has been a war over the womb of this nation.
There is a war over your womb, what you’re going to birth. And the Lord says, The baby’s coming and it’s not going to be stopped this time. Your vision and your purpose and your destiny will not be aborted.
If I only had a brain. If I only had a heart. I can’t do anything (limbs are stiff and stuck). Some of you have felt paralyzed. Lip-locked. Like there wasn’t anything left in there. Life has a way of doing that to you, and I’m not talking about the life of Christ.
I’m talking about the things that come our way that causes atrophy to set in. That causes us to feel stuck, and we don’t know which end is up.
And we just need somebody to come with a can of oil and start oiling us so we can have movement again. The Lord is bringing the oil. Fresh oil. A fresh anointing. A fresh outpouring in you, on you, through you tonight. Not tomorrow. You don’t need it tomorrow. Some of you can’t wait until tomorrow. It’s going to give you courage to go again.
Some of you just want to go home. The gift of God always has the ability to go home. Because he is our home. He is in us and he never leaves us. Some of you have felt like quitting and he just won’t let you quit. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t want to go home until I’m finished. There have been times it would feel easier to go home. I mean to go home. Some of you have really felt that—I just want to die.
But this is the thing. I don’t want to go home until I’m finished. And I don’t want to finish defeated. I want to finish victorious. And hey! I can’t do it on my own. I can’t make it happen. So I’m going to spread wide in the arms of Christ. And when he says, I want to give you a new brain, I want to renew your heart and mind, and I want to infuse you with a mind of courage, (then) Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. Be not afraid and be not discouraged. Take courage, my heart.
Psalm 86 MSG. A song of David. This is going to speak directly to some of you. I believe the 11th verse portion is for everyone in this room.
Bend and ear, God; answer me. I’m one miserable wretch! Keep me safe—haven’t I lived a good life? Help our servant—I’m depending on you! You’re my God; have mercy on me. I count on you from morning to night. Give your servant a happy life; I put myself in your hands! You’re well-known as good and forgiving, bighearted to all who ask for help. Pay attention, God, to my prayer; bend down and listen to my cry for help. Every time I’m in trouble I call on you, confident that you’ll answer.
:8 There’s no one quite like you among the gods, O Lord, and nothing to compare with your works. All the nations you made are on their way, ready to give honor to you, O Lord, Ready to put your beauty on display, parading your greatness, and the great things you do—God, you’re the one, there’s no one but you!—And here it is. Train me,
:11 Train me, God, to walk straight; then I’ll follow your true path. Put me together, one heart and mind; then, undivided, I’ll worship in joyful fear. From the bottom of my heart I thank you, dear Lord; I’ve never kept secret what you’re up to. You’ve always been great toward me—what love! You snatched me from the brink of disaster! God, these bullies have reared their heads! A gang of thugs is after me—and they don’t care a thing about you.
But you, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love, and you never, never quit.
I want you to know he is never, never, never going to quit on you. Ever. He will not give up. He will not let go. If you have been taught the Lord will leave you or the Spirit of the Lord will leave you, it is flat-out error. Because having believed and received the gospel of your salvation, it says we have been marked in him with a seal—the precious Holy Spirit.
I’ve heard religious people in my past, Oh, Holy Spirit will get up and leave. And I’m, Really? Well, I must have to go, too. I’m saying. Why in the world would the earnest, the deposit, the helper, the guard, the keeper, the Spirit of Adoption, get up and leave when we need him the most? He is committed to hold the house through thick and thin. Committed.
When God commits himself to you, he does not change his mind. And he’ll let you go on calf’s rope for a while. You put a little calf on a rope and give him some room, some length, he’ll just start going along the way he want to go until he comes to the end of the rope. One things about it, we all get to the end of the rope. And I think there are some who are at the end of the rope.
So the Lord is saying, I want to put you together. Heart and soul. Heart and mind. Where there has been a shadow of turning, where there’s been wavering, where things have been shaking around you, and even caused you to quake within, I am the stability of your times. I am your sure foundation for your situations. I am a rich store of salvation. Wisdom. The key to the treasure is the fear of the Lord. It’s worship.
I believe the Lord is giving you a key tonight and it’s called worship. I believe he reached out with cords of love and began to reel us in. Let me see your face. Let me see your face.
So look me in the eye and show kindness; give your servant the strength to go on; save your dear, dear child!
That would be me. Hear David? Save your dear, dear child. I’m it.
Make a show of how much you love me so the bullies who hate me will stand there slack-jawed, as you, God, gently and powerfully put me back on my feet.
He is going to put you back on your feet tonight.
This a powerful verse. II Samuel 23:5 NLT. Is it not my family God has chosen? Yes! He has made an everlasting covenant with me. His agreement is arranged and guaranteed in every detail. He will ensure my safety and success.
When I first read this scripture a long time ago, I almost fell out of my chair.
II Samuel 23: 5 NIV84. Is not my house right with God?
What makes your house right with God? Is it what you do or because of what you believe? I’m asking you. What makes your house right with God? Is it because of what you believe? Or is it because of what you do? I didn’t know how he was going to put this together. He’s putting it together. Brace yourselves.
Galatians 3. You foolish Galatians. Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you. Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish after beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? Have you suffered so much for nothing? If it really was for nothing.
Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law or because you believe what you heard? Consider Abraham. He believed God and it was credited unto him as righteousness.
Understand then, those who believe are children of Abraham. The scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham. All nations will be blessed through you. So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
All who rely on observing the law are under a curse. For it is written, Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the book of law. Clearly, no one is justified before God by the law because the righteous will live by faith. The law is not based on faith. On the contrary, the man who does these things will live by them.
Christ redeemed us by the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. For it is written, Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.
He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
This is what I want to release. I want to go back to II Samuel 23:5. This is what David said, Is not my house right with God? Has he not made with me an everlasting covenant arranged and secured in every part? Will he not bring to fruition my salvation and grant me by every desire?
The Word of God says that when we delight ourselves in the Lord he gives us the desires of our heart. God has a plan, a vision, a dream, a dream that he has ordained that you and I live in and that we walk it out. I said to Anna today, He just wants us to dream with him. He wants to see his God-dreams manifested in your life.
So the promise in II Samuel 23:5 is, David is saying, Is my house not right with God? When you believe and you receive Jesus Christ, you are born-again, born of the Spirit. He came to live in your re-gened, your recreated spirit man. Our spirit man is recreated in Christ Jesus. And all the days for us are written in God’s book. He has the blueprint. He had a vision.
So David says, Is my house not right with God? Has he not arranged and secured? Has he not made a covenant with me? And it’s arranged and secured? Will he not bring to fruition the plan? I believe you are in this room or watching because the Lord says, It is time for my plan and my purpose to manifest in your life. It’s not about you trying to find it. It has found you because it is written on your very DNA. And he is coming alive. He is going to cause his vision to come alive in you like never before.
He told Habakkuk, Write the vision and make is plain, and though it tarry, wait on it, because the vision will not fail. The vision and the fulfillment of the vision is based on whether you’re going to yield to him and agree with him and take him at his word, and just let him do it. It really is the truth.
His word is unstoppable. Heaven and earth will pass away but the Word of the Lord will never fail. His mercies are new every morning. I have taken to watching the sun come up every morning because the Word of God says that at the breaking of the day, at the rising of the sun, his mercy and his justice come. And it’s not sun worship. It’s Son worship. It is a new day. It is a new day. It is a new day. It is a new day.
I want to share with you eight signs of witchcraft. This is not all-inclusive. I’m not the originator of the list but I agree with it. Because I want to ask you tonight, if you have been dealing with any of this, and I don’t mean occasionally, but if you have been habitually dealing with some of these areas, then it is a good indicator you are dealing with witchcraft.
The Lord says his plan for our lives, his vision for us, is Fail-Proof. It will not fail. I said that yesterday morning, only to follow with, My breath is here. He is ready to breathe the breath of life into you and me. To breathe into the dreams and visions that have been laying dormant. To breathe into those places where the enemy, circumstances, or people or situations just came and took the wind right out of your sails.
Some of you have learned, Don’t cast your pearls before swine. You start sharing what the Lord is telling you and you’re excited, and you think other people are going to be excited about it, and there are people who are. But there are other people that are called dream-killers and destiny-thieves. And you don’t need to share your dreams and your visions with people who are not going to come into agreement with the Lord. Because there are people who will agree and take hold of it with you and pull it into the earth realm. Because it’s alive there. He is the God who calls those things that are not as though they were. Anything that you’ll ever do for God is already there. It’s the truth. It’s what the Word says.
1. The first issue is 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 you mind, you can be sure that it’s not coming from God. He is not the God of confusion.
When the children of Israel were in that place, and Ezekiel had an encounter with God, and there was a valley full of dry bones, I don’t want any dry bone areas in my life. This is the time that the Lord is saying, I’m going to make you wholly whole. I’m going to renew your mind. I’m going to renew your heart. Your heart is your thinking, your reflection. It is the determination of your will. It is the seat of courage. It is the seat of appetites. Hope deferred makes the heart sick.
Some of you have been waiting for change, change, change, people to change. Well, I don’t think I can do that until they are this and this and this. And God is saying, You need to get over it. And you need to come on because I’m going to take care of you. If you’ll let me do the work in you, I’ll deal with the situation.
You just come unto me all you who are heavy-laden and I’m going to give you rest. You just need to cast your cares upon me. Because there is an enemy that prowls around like a roaring lion and he is seeking whom he may devour. But I’ve got good news for you. I’m going to strengthen you in your inner man by the power of my Spirit, and I’m going to put you back on your feet wholly whole. And I’m going to deal with confusion.
Prophesy to the breath, oh son of man. Breath, come and breathe into these dry bones. What are these, Lord? They are the whole house of Israel. They are saying, Our bones are dry. Our hope is gone. And we are cut off.
There are times in all of our lives, at some point and time, and I can guarantee you, when everyone in this room has felt that before. You might not be in that place tonight. Maybe you’ve come out of it. But if the Lord says to me, I am releasing my breath, it says to me that he is going to deal with places in our lives and in the body of Christ where we’re ashamed, confused, and confounded.
Where we can’t understand. Where is the vision? Where is the promise? What hasn’t this happened yet? I know you said it, Lord. And you become weary in waiting. Those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength. He says it’s ‘Mount Up Time.’ It’s time to run. It’s time to walk. And you’re not going to be weary and you’re not going to be faint. Because I’m going to breathe my life into you and restore your hope.
It’s Reset. It’s recovery time. There are things in my life, I don’t know how they’re going to turn out. I need a miracle. There are areas in your life that you need miracles, or your family members need miracles. People need deliverance. People need healing. People need a financial miracle to the place where, if God doesn’t come through, it’s not going to happen.
I am standing before you tonight to tell you that he is faithful even when we are faithless. He will not deny himself. And he has brought you into himself. Abraham believed. And when Abraham believed, it literally means in the Hebrew that God brought Abraham into himself. And there was an account called righteousness that got filled up. Cha-ching. (5 times) Change change change. It’s the truth. That’s good, Lord.
This is the New Covenant. When Tara believed God, believed in Jesus, God brought Tara into Christ who is in the Father. And the Spirit of God came to live in Tara.
Christ is in the Father and we’re in Christ. And he’s in us in the person of Holy Spirit. That’s really stacked up, now.
Jesus said the prince of this world is coming and in me, on me, he has nothing. So if Jesus is in the Father and I’m in Jesus, and Holy Spirit is in me, where is the devil? On the outside trying to look in. He can’t see anything because I’m hidden in Christ. And so are you. It’s the truth. It’s the Word.
That’s right, Wanda. Did God really say? Surely God didn’t say! Oh yes, he did! It’s Crushing and Rushing Time. This is Gaining Ground Season. The Lord said a few weeks ago, I’m going up the middle, Betty. We’re going up the middle. Like in a football play where a defender gets separated on every side. We’re going up the middle because he is going for the goal. And we are in him, and we are moving. Unstoppable.
So confusion, dry bones. In Hebrew that word ‘dry’ means to be ashamed, confounded or confused. So if you have been dealing with confusion. And I’ll tell you. I do lose my keys. I lose them in my purse. But it’s not because I’m dealing with witchcraft; it’s because I’m focused somewhere else. Okay? So don’t get tripped up. We’re not demon-phobic. We’re Holy Ghost possessed. But if you have constantly been dealing with confusion.
Probably two months ago I felt a strong attack of witchcraft so much so that I couldn’t even get through my prayer time. I couldn’t even confess the Word. So I got out my prayer sheets and I might have had to start over two or three times, but I worked through it.
And then you gave me that book, Prayer Rain. So every morning after my one on one time with the Lord, I got out my prayer confessions and then went to Prayer Rain, and I just stayed on the back patio, going back and forth in the yard until I wasn’t confused anymore. It’s time.
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 task at hand. Your mind wanders to and fro. You can’t keep a train of thought or pay attention to what you’re hearing or reading. It can be difficult to hear from God and discern the devil. We must walk in I Peter 5:8. Be sober and watchful, for your adversary the devil walks around, prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
What is the answer for that? We fix our eyes on Jesus. We put on the full armor of God. We set our hearts and minds on things above. We get out the scripture. Lord, you said for us to cast our care upon you and you would lift us up in due season. Lord, because you’re in the midst of me, I am not moved by what I see or hear. I submit myself to God. I resist the devil and he flees from me.
You have given me power and authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, to overcome all the power of the enemy. Lord, breathe your breath of life into me and let this confusion be displaced now in Jesus name. Counter with the Word.
3. Wanting to hide in your cave. I like my cave. I like being along 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 and then I would fly away and be at rest, 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.
When you want to pull the covers up over your head and you want to stay there and not come out. This is not a time to run and hide. This is a time to come out with your sword and with the high praises of God in your mouth, and clean the enemy’s clock. Let the high praises of God be in your mouth and a two-edged sword in your hand to execute vengeance on the enemy and the judgment written. All I had to do is stay still, stand still, worship, bow down. He hates it. He hates it because when you worship, even if it’s, Jesus Loves Me This I Know, God inhabits the praises of his people. And when he manifests do you think satan is going to stay around? I don’t think so.
4. Forgetting who you really are. Have you ever gotten so busy with life and dealing with stuff that all of a sudden you don’t recognize yourself? You are a child of the King. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Greater is he that’s in you than the one that’s in the world.
I John 4:4. You are blessed coming in and blessed going out. Everything you put your hand to prospers. That’s your legal position. We have been made to sit in the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus. We have access to God 24/7. He says, Come boldly unto the throne of grace to receive mercy and find help in your time of need. He is with us and will never leave us nor forsake us. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Every good and perfect gift comes down from our Father of heavenly lights in whom there is no shadow of turning. In Psalm 46, Because God is in the midst of her, she will not fail. God is in the midst of us. He’s in the house. We’re not trying to get to him. He’s gotten to us.
5. Discouraged, depressed, and ready to quit. When you get to the point where you’re ready to quit. We all get discouraged from time to time, but when witchcraft attacks you, 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 according to Daniel 7:25. That is one of the schemes. He can try to wear you out with a relationship, in your job, with children issues, husband issues, family issues, financial issues, work-related issues. He will do whatever he can to wear and tear. But the Word of God says to not become weary in well-doing because in due season you will reap a harvest if you don’t give up. We’re in a harvest year.
Hebraically, prophetically, it’s a year to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living, a year to birth vision and promises. God says, Do I bring you to the point of delivery and not deliver? The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His womb never fails. What he has purposed, he gives birth to.
Yet the Bible commands us not to grow weary in well-doing. He promises you will reap a harvest if you don’t give up. But let’s be clear, the devil is trying to steal your harvest and you don’t have to let him.
I believe tonight is about, Ding dong the wicked witch is dead. And I believe it is a personal promise to everyone in this room and those that are watching. What God has said, he is going to do. Is your house not right with God? Is Jesus not right with the Father? Has he not secured everything for us in his new covenant? Will he not bring to fruition his plan that he has secured and arranged? He’s already arranged the thing. It is a setup.
We really need to see this. God is looking for a place to happen in our lives. And the key is: Don’t get distracted. Don’t quit. Don’t let the enemy wear you out, wear you down, bring fear or discouragement, or confusion. Keep your mind renewed and steadfast in this season.
The Lord said, Be inundated with the Word of God. That means immerse yourself in the Word. Because there is nothing that can gainsay the Word of God. It is alive. He will read you. The Word of God is living and active and sharper than a two-edged sword. It will divide your soul and your spirit even to your joint and your marrow. It will go to the very DNA, the life-producing part of your being.
He will heal you on every level—spirit, soul, and body. The Word works. The entrance of his Word brings light. It revives the soul. It will never return to him void. When you read the Word, it’s going to read you. It’s going to go forth in your life and it’s going to prosper and do what it’s sent to do. God has an assignment for the word on your life. Our Father is a good father. He has seed selection every day if you will let him open your ears, because ears that hear and eyes that see, the Lord God made them.
I had no clue yesterday morning when the Lord said, Fail-Proof, Betty. Then he sends me to Lamentations. Can anything good come out of Lamentations? Oh yeah. My compassions fail not. My mercies are new every morning. Good morning. Good morning. ?Good morning. Good morning. Good morning to you. Good morning good morning. Good morning to you.
Hello world. When we were on assignment in Gulf Shores, Tara woke up one morning and the first thing she heard was Anna’s voice saying, Hello, Cloud. She was greeting the cloud of witnesses that had been assigned that day. Hello Cloud. Because we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses. We’re going to strip down, lay aside every weight, anything that would entangle us or hinder us, and we’re going to run that race that is marked out for us with perseverance.
?Follow the yellow brick road. Follow the yellow brick road. Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the yellow brick road.
And I’ve got an Emerald City that is better than the Wizard of Oz. Because the Word of God says in the Throne Zone there is a rainbow like an emerald encircling the throne. And I get to go in there. And so do you. Not when we all get to heaven. I’m already in heaven. Read the book of Ephesians, because we’re seated in heavenly places.
And if John can have an encounter with the risen Lord, and a door can open up in heaven, and the voice of the Lord speaking to him like a war trumpet says, Come up here and I will show you where you’re going to go, I’m going up and have a look/see. This is a look/see season. He wants the tablets of your heart and your mind, and Holy Spirit and the Spirit of the New Covenant. He wants to do his new covenant work and write on your tablets the word of God, the will of God, and the way of God.
6. Angry and Frustrated. When witchcraft attacks, you may feel angry and frustrated. You feel like people and things are standing in your way. You may get mad at yourself, mad at the devil, even mad at God. You’re sick and tired of your circumstances, but what you don’t realize is that the enemy is magnifying your circumstances with distorted mirrors and smoke that clouds reality. When this happens, just keep acknowledging the Lord and he will make your path straight.
Trust in the Lord and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make plain and straight your path. Anna and I were conversing about the Wizard of Oz and about that movie, because literally I heard each character. Dorothy just wanted to go home.
Blood covenant has brought us home, now. We all have ruby red slippers on our feet. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony, and we love not our lives unto the death. The thing that each one of them needed they already had. The Word of God says that his divine power has given us everything that we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him.
He wants us to know him. He wants us to know that when he makes a promise, he’s going to fulfill it. He wants us to know that when the enemy comes and tries to bring doubt and fear or shame or unbelief or accusation, that when he said it he meant it. And because Jesus has made up the Father’s mind, he will never change it. My righteousness and my coming in is based on what Jesus has done.
Now, he will drop a plumb line of righteousness in my life, and what doesn’t line up he will cause to line up. He’s not into greasy grace. Real grace is God’s unmerited favor, but it is more than that. It is his supernatural ability in you and me enabling us to do what we can’t do in our own strength. It’s his power. Our part is just to say, I can’t; help me, Lord. But, I can do all things through Christ. My God is able and will. My God is not a man that he should lie or a son of man that he should change his mind. He will not violate his covenant or alter what his lips have uttered. It’s just the truth.
He’s a good Father. When you ask, it will be given. When you seek, you’ll find. When you knock, the door will be opened. He says, If a man lacks wisdom let him ask of God. But when he asks, let him not doubt. Let him not waver in unbelief. But when he asks, let him ask believing that God gives liberally without finding fault.
When you ask the Father for wisdom, it doesn’t matter how bad you’ve messed up, he’s not going to tell you how bad it is. You already know it. He already knows it. So he’s going to give you the solution. I will give you wisdom. I will enable you to make the right choice at the right time, put you in the right place with the right word to bring this into right alignment with my plan for you. I will redeem the time.
7. Sickness and aches and pains. When witchcraft attacks, there are many people that experience symptoms in their physical body. I can tell you, the anointing is the greatest thing to deal with that. Stand up anyway. In over 35 years of ministry and 30 years of traveling on the road, there are intercessors and armor bearers in this room that can tell you there were times it didn’t look like there was any way I was going to be able to stand up.
And I’ll be honest with you. The crud hit me last weekend and we had a lot of meetings. I really tried to seek the Lord about going to the doctor and what to do. Monday a week ago I went and got a shot in each hip, and on Monday night we had one of the most incredible meetings in Brandon, Mississippi. Madison followed. And by the time we hit the third meeting on Tuesday night, there was no stopping.
And Wanda, who has covered me for 30 years as an intercessor, said, I don’t always get to do this, but I was standing in the meeting with you last Tuesday night and I could see you, and you had armor on your back. And then she began to talk about the stomp thing that the Lord had her doing in the heavenly realm.
When that started Anna, and Chris and Stacy Vowel said it was nothing like they had ever heard before. I started this (stomping my foot.) Dottie and Nancy were there. We had backup in the house. There was a stomp and it was shaking some stuff. But every time the stomp came, it released power out of your spirit. This was Chris and Stacy Vowel’s ministry house in Philadelphia and they said, There was something in our spirit. He was working with sound.
But I think it’s interesting that she said, The Lord has had me in the heavenly realm and there’s a stomp going on. And then she said, Oh, I was in that meeting with you Tuesday night and she was describing the armor. And I thought, Yeah we had a stomp in the house. She didn’t know about the stomp in the house because it wasn’t recorded.
But the enemy will bring aches and pains. How many of you have heard on Sunday morning, Oh just stay in bed and don’t go today? And then you went anyway. I’m not telling you there’s not a time you need to stay home and recover. I’m not saying that. I want you to hear. There’s no condemnation. But on the days when I didn’t feel like it and I pressed on and went anyway, glory (dancing around). It’s called witchcraft. So we need to know what we’re dealing with.
I’m going to read what this person shared. Sometimes people’s chests get tight and they feel dizzy. I told many before that when witchcraft attacks me, my eyes burn. Sometimes my chest gets tight and I get dizzy. One of my intercessors gets terrible back pain when witchcraft manifests in her life. Another of my friends sees old stroke symptoms return. This is not from God. We have authority over it but many times we grumble and complain and confess how bad off we are, which only strengthens the enemy’s grip on us.
The devil brings what Jonah 2:8 calls lying vanities against you to make you think something is wrong so you’ll confess it out of your mouth and open the door for it to settle.
Again, I’m not talking about something that is real deal. I’m not saying that these symptoms are not real deal. But I’m talking about a 911 to the emergency room over and over and they can’t find anything, and they never find anything, because it’s not that kind of sickness. It’s being brought on by the enemy. And it does not lessen the symptoms. They are not any less real. I’ve seen people, their blood pressure is out the wazoo and every symptom of a heart attack. It’s not reflux, or GERD, or a heart attack.
It’s witchcraft. So, may we recognize the difference. There’s a key. Stay armored up, immersed in the Word. Plead the blood. Give no place to the devil. Give no place to the flesh.
8. Just plain worn out. If you slept eight hours, had a tall cup of coffee, and you still feel like you’ve been run over by a truck, witchcraft could be attacking you. This is one of the ways witchcraft comes after many. I’ve learned not to give into a nap that turns into four or five hours of witchcraft induced sleep. If you are eating well, sleeping well, exercising well, and living well, and you are generally healthy, you shouldn’t feel like you are walking through quicksand. This could be a witchcraft attack.
These are just a few. This is not an all-inclusive list. Your takeaway tonight is: The Lord says he is breaking the spirit of witchcraft off of our lives. He is giving us a new heart, a new mind, and courage.
Dottie Duckworth. I had a vision. Jesus rode in on a white horse and told me to get up. I got on the horse with Jesus and he’s laughing and we’re going really fast and doing all these loopty-loops. And I can feel the wind on my face.
I get off the horse and he hands me a huge ruby. It’s considered one of the most precious gems in the Bible. It represents power, love.It’s inspired more emotion than almost any other stone’ It’s also the birthstone for July; wisdom, love, health.
I kept thinking about Dorothy and the ruby red slippers and Danette, because he had a word for her when Betty started. So I did a word search.
Betty. I do know the angels are here. They are sent to minister to the heirs of salvation. I know that healing is in the room and anything that’s been released in here tonight. If you find yourself in any of these circumstances or situations, the Lord is going to put you together, one mind and heart, undivided. He is going to reset you and realign you and set you on a path.
Dottie. Only the wicked witch of the west understands the full power of the slippers. Dorothy’s ruby slippers represent the power we all have within ourselves to make our dreams become reality. When the good witch said to Dorothy, You always had the power to go to Kansas, that says it all.
Betty. So the power of the Spirit of the Lord living on the inside of you is enough to set you free. So we ask the Lord for fresh anointing oil, for release of his presence and his power, the fullness of himself, within us now.
And Lord, as we present ourselves to you, I thank you Lord that we are strong. We take courage. We’re not intimidated. We don’t give a second thought to the enemy. Just present yourself to him.
?From this moment on, join with heaven’s song, singing out an endless alleluia.
Only a moment to live this life, like shooting stars burning up the night. Till the heavens open and we arrive in your presence, Lord. There’s nothing better than this right now.
Betty. So right here right now, Father, in the authority you have vested in us, in the name of Jesus Christ, we bind the spirit of witchcraft and every evil attack of the enemy, every place of oppression, depression, every symptom of sickness, discouragement, confusion, weariness, frustration and anger, disappointment. We take authority over you now in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and uproot, tear down, destroy, and completely overthrow every attack of the enemy.
I decree and declare, spirit, soul, body, come to divine order. Any place that we have been fragmented or scattered or shattered in our heart, our mind, will, and emotion, we call wholeness, healing. Be made whole. Be made whole. Hearts be made whole. Minds be made whole. Souls be made whole. Bodies be made whole.
Anna. ?Here now, Jesus you change everything. Chains fall. Fear bows. Lives healed. Hope found. Jesus you change everything.
Betty. Rearrange. Rearrange me Lord. Come and change me. Come and heal me. Come and fill me. Fill my heart and mind oh God. Make me whole again. Make we whole in you again. Open my eyes to see. Open my ears to hear. Open my heart to believe again, to understand again.
He’s bringing somebody out of the ungodly depths where you have been down under, stuck. He is bringing you up right now. Breaking depression off right now in the name of Jesus. Even chemical depression. It’s gotta go, gotta go, gotta go go go. Out, in Jesus name.
He is anointing us with the oil of gladness. He is clothing us with the garment of praise. A crown of beauty instead of ashes. Heal me Lord, and I will be healed.
This is for more than one person here. I remember when my brother played football. He was a linebacker through high school. When they got bruised or had an injury, they would come home with a Coca-Cola cup with this orange salve. It was called Atomic Balm. The Lord says he is releasing his Atomic Balm. He’s atomic. There’s a balm in Gilead. Healing balm.
Anna. There’s a balm in Gilead and it’s being poured out on you tonight. It coming in our midst tonight right here right now.
Betty. Symptoms of arthritis, arthritis leaves your body in the name of Jesus Christ.
Back pain. Raise your hand if you have back pain. Father, I thank you for healing backs, neck, vertebrae. Hei Hei Hei. Realigning the spine. Recreating. Creative miracles. Carpal pain out in Jesus name.
Anna. There’s healing in his presence and his presence is here. There’s healing now, spirit, soul and body. What do you have need of?
Betty. The healer’s here to take your fear. Worry and anxiety goes right now. Depression and oppression goes. Shalom, shalom.
Anna. Bring your peace. Peace, peace over me. We declare peace.
Betty. Peace of God. Someone, maybe more than one, your waters are polluted with bitterness. Bitterness has brought death to areas of your life, even in relationships, and the Lord says that he is drawing out the bitter waters. He is going to a bitter root. It’s even caused pain in your body. You’re going to be amazed. Give it up. Give it up. Give it up. Will you give it up? We give up the anger. Give up the resentment. Give up the bitterness. Give up judgments.
Anna. We give you control.
Betty. I take authority over a spirit of death and infirmity and poverty. And I break its power off of our lives and I ask that you go to the root right now and you bring healing. Lord, I thank you for a washing of wounds right now. You’re healing wounds. We bind up the wounded and the injured and the brokenhearted in Jesus name. I command it so.
Somebody’s had issues for a while. When I said that, I could feel the power of God go out from me, so that says it’s been a while. He’s dealing with issues, healing issues.
Lord, I thank you for healing gall bladders tonight in Jesus name.
Testimony of healing manifestations.
Betty. The light of his face is shining. Come and shine on us, oh God. We give you all the glory. Healing hearts. Healing bodies.
?There is healing in his presence. Breath of God, come. Breathe on us, breath of God. Release your Ruach breath of God. So blow on through. Spirit move. We’re ready for you to come blow on through. Come and do what only you can do.
We are fixed on this one thing, to know your heart and see your glory. We’re transformed by this one thing. Come transform us, revive us, restore us and bring healing. Renew my mind oh Lord. Renew my mind to your mind. Come heal my heart oh Lord. Give me clean hands and a pure heart.
Give me courage to face whatever may come. Make me bold as a lion. Pick up any pieces of me and put me back together. You are restoring.
Testimony of healing manifestations.
Betty. With the revelation the Lord has given of a new heart, and a new mind, and courage—the righteous are as bold as a lion—we would be remiss if we went out of here (without prayer).
I pray the Lord is going to draw you into his very heart. I pray in the name of Jesus that he will baptize you afresh even now with his Spirit and fire. That you will go home and you will dream dreams and you will see visions. But you will enter into this place. We’re going to come into the throne room and stand before the Lord.
I’m asking him for every song, every word, everything that has been released in here, that the Lord would complete what he’s begun and that he would manifest himself to you and through you and manifest his word on earth as it is in heaven.
?Somewhere over the rainbow way up high. There’s a land that you heard of once in a lullaby. Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly. And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true. Someday I’ll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me. Where troubles melt like lemon drops are way above the chimney tops. It’s where you’ll find me.
Betty. Father, I thank you for dreams and visions and outpouring of your Spirit upon our lives. I bless each individual in this room tonight, those watching. And Lord, I bless them in their birthrights and their destinies. I bless them with finishing the race you’ve marked out for them. For fighting the good fight. And that you carry to completion the good work that you have begun in each one of us.
Thank you for vision and revisioning us, and for transforming us in your glory tonight in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
