Exposing witchcraft – discerning how witchcraft spirits attack you

The spirit of witchcraft is a master at diverting attention away from itself by turning it toward you. Witchcraft separates and isolates its victims from friends and family. One who is being spiritually influenced feels the loss of personal identity and self-esteem. Depression and fatigue quickly follow as the super spiritual controller gives abnormal attention to those it desires to manipulate.

Let’s look at these witchcraft attacks more closely.

FATIGUE

Fatigue is a much-used weapon of witchcraft. Witchcraft drains the life (energy) right out of you. When attacked, you feel tired, depressed, oppressed and fatigued. You can take vitamins, exercise, run five miles and it still doesn’t help. Have you noticed how many people go to work tired all the time? They have three cups of coffee in the morning just to begin work. Could some of them be suffering from a witchcraft assignment?

Others feel sad, sleep all the time and feel trapped in depression and can’t get out. What I used to think was simply stress-related I now strongly suspect to be the indication of demonic assignments. There have been times, for example, when I was feeling extremely stressed, boarded a plane, left the city and felt the fatigue lift. I am not ruling out the effects of stress, but if you know the fatigue is not medical – or stress-related, could it be witchcraft’s assignments?

There have been other times when I have been well rested, in superb health, the bills are all paid, everything is good, but I find myself weary. There are other times, after preaching certain subjects like “Exposing Spiritual Witchcraft,” “Jezebel Seducing Goddess Of War,” “Ahab The Provoker,” “Religious Spirits” or “Beware The Charismatic Merchandisers,” I fight against spiritual retaliations. Such demonic assignments should never stop you from following the leading of the Holy Spirit to minister a certain topic.

Review these questions to help you identify if witchcraft has been released at you through the methods we just discussed.

  • When you are in prayer, do you get sick or have headaches?
  • Have you ever gotten ill after a confrontation with someone who was spiritually contending with you?
  • Do you feel tired most the time?
  • Are your emotions on a roller coaster?
  • Do you suffer from depression?
  • Have you experienced spiritual retaliations against you?

TIME CONSUMERS

Here’s a subtle weapon of witchcraft – the time thief. What these witchcraft controllers do is spend abnormal amounts of time with their victims:

  • The girl that consumes all her friends’ spare time.
  • The boy that smothers his girlfriend with inordinate attention.
  • The father that picks his son up on his day off because of reoccurring emergencies.
  • The husband that keeps his wife so busy that she has no time for anything else.
  • The believer that wants to meet with the pastor each week to talk about the same old, same old.
  • The teacher who drowns the student with excessive tutoring.
  • The friend that never goes home.
  • The boss that continually has you in his office to sit and listen.

Witchcraft will go out of the way to control and waste your time. It’s not a natural thing; it’s a spiritual thing. Scripture says, “Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbor’s house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee” (Proverbs 25:17).

In the church, we can see the spirit of witchcraft operating through the person who wants to hold a deep spiritual conversation with the pastor right before he approaches the pulpit to speak.
Review these questions to help you identify if witchcraft has been released at you through the methods we just discussed.

  • Is there anyone who spends abnormal amounts of time with you either in person or on the telephone?
  • Is there anyone who continually consumes or desires your time, especially when you should be in church?
  • Have you ever noticed the person who wants to have a spiritual conversation with you during the most reverent time of a church service?

DIVERTING ATTENTION

Witchcraft is a master at diverting attention away from itself by turning it toward you. It makes others think that you are the one with the problem. People operating in witchcraft are masters at taking the focus off of them whenever they are about to be discovered. They shift the blame rather than taking the responsibility for their wrongs.

Those under witchcraft’s control think they never do anything wrong. When caught, they say there is nothing for which to repent. They tell you directly, “I haven’t done anything wrong.” Or, “I did what I thought was right. I don’t have anything to feel sorry about.” They never manifest any true repentance or humility. Whatever humility they may demonstrate is false and used only as a tool to manipulate you. Superficial repentance is a common witchcraft deception. Beware of their motives because witchcraft never examines self.

Review these questions to help you identify if witchcraft has been released at you through the methods we just discussed.

  • Do you ever feel that everything is your fault?
  • Do you know someone that feels like they have not done anything wrong after they have abused you?
  • Do you always blame your problems on someone else?
  • Have people told you they were sorry but you knew they weren’t?

LEGITIMATE FRONTS

The spirit of witchcraft seeks a legitimate front. To look good, those operating in witchcraft surround themselves with men and women of character. They try to associate themselves with credible people and others with good reputations in an attempt to make it look like they’re part of that group. Simon, a sorcerer, for example, joined Philip’s ministry team in Samaria (Acts 8). The Apostle Peter discerned Simon’s motives and rebuked him.

SOUL TIES

Witchcraft uses soul ties to control its victims. Have you ever heard the word soul ties? Well, that’s what witchcraft wants to create with its victim. If your emotions can be hooked, then they can gain a soul tie with you. If they can form a soul tie with you, then they can control you. All abnormal soul ties need to be broken by the power of the Name of Jesus. There are natural soul ties and abnormal soul ties.

A natural soul tie could be formed if you were involved in a plane crash, landed on a remote island with several survivors and helped each other endure. The result of that accident could lead to a positive emotional bonding with the others. That’s a healthy bonding because everybody successfully went through a great trial together.

When you have sexual relations with someone there is a soul tie (emotional bonding) that generates because two fleshes become one (Genesis 2:24). Sexual relations in marriage generate a healthy soul tie, while sexual relations outside of marriage create unhealthy soul ties.

I know of times when people have lost their children through some unfortunate accident. Just being there with them has formed an emotional soul tie. In essence, there are some good soul ties that bring stability into a person’s life to help get them through something. Then there are soul ties used solely for the purpose of manipulation, control and selfish gain.

Review these questions to help you identify if witchcraft has been released at you through the methods we just discussed.

  • Have you ever been emotionally bonded with someone who used that bonding to manipulate you?
  • Have you met the person who tries to make himself or herself look important through the use of other peoples’ reputations?
  • Do you know anyone who insinuates that they are part of an organization through namedropping?
