Cause and Effect of Witchcraft


                TABLE OF CONTENTS


1. Scripture References



























Ex. 22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live (death). (See 1 Sam. 15:23, 2 Kings 9:22, 2 Chron. 33:6, Micah 5:12, Nahum 3:4 and Gal. 5:20 for witch, witchcraft and witchcrafts. See Lev. 19:31, 20:6; 20:27; 1 Sam. 28:3, 9; 2 Kings 21:6, 23:24; 2 Chron. 33:6; and Isa. 8:19; 19:3 for wizard and wizards.)

Lev. 19:26, 31 Ye shall not eat anything with the blood; neither shall ye use enchantments, nor observe times. Regard not them that have familiar spirits, nor seek after wizards to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.

Lev. 20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits and after wizards; and to go a whoring after him, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people (death).

Lev. 20:27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones; their blood shall be upon them (death).

Deut. 7:26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it; but thou shalt utterly detest, and thou shall utterly abhor it, for it is a cursed thing (cursed).

Deut. 18:10-12 There shall not be found among you anyone that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord; and because of these abominations The Lord Thy God doth drive them out before thee (abominations).

Psa. 107:10-12 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction: Because they rebelled against the words of God and condemned the counsel of the most High. Therefore he brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help (death).

Psa. 109:17-18 As he loved cursing so let it come unto him, as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him. As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water and like oil into his bones (cursing).

Pro. 17:11 An evil man seeketh only rebellion; therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

Isa. 47:11-15 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know. Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherin thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it. Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee. (Evil shall come upon thee: mischief, desolation, wearied and none to save).

Isa. 63:10 But they rebelled and vexed His Holy Spirit: therefore He was turned to be their enemy and He fought against them.

Eze. 13:17-23Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them. And say, Thus saith the LORD GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you? And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? Wherefore thus saith the LORD GOD; Behold I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life: therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. (Through witchcraft, God's people can become sad, depressed, captive, killed, backslidden, entrapped.)

Micah 5:12 And I will cut off witchcraft out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayer (death).

Nahum 3:4 Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well favored harlot, the mistress of witchcraft, that selleth nations through whoredoms and families through her witchcraft (selling nations and families).

Matt. 12:25 Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

Gal. 3:1 Oh foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, That you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you (betwitched church).

II Pet. 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

Supernatural power is the primary need of The Church today. What part of The Church has been bewitched? Carnality and legalism are two problems. Legalism is the greatest single threat to the purposes of GOD. Not all supernatural manifestations come from GOD. Many seminaries today are putting out servants of Satan. For every genuine manifestation of GOD there is a counterfeit which is a cheap imitation of the real thing. When one strays into major doctrinal error, he will slide into moral errors. Many make the most common mistake of following after feelings and signs; soul (demon) power rather than THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD. The world has taken over The Church.

Witchcraft is the fifth column inside The Church. Witchcraft is going to infiltrate The Church, and in many instances, we can see it already. Witchcraft can turn an entire church away from truth into false doctrines by infiltration, perversion and deceit. It is conceivable that churches which were at one time powerhouses for GOD, but have split and closed their doors, were destroyed by witchcraft.


The fact that most all high ranking satanists regularly attend Christian churches should not be a surprise to anyone. Any teaching that does not agree with God's word must be challenged, no matter who is teaching it. They curse the church, the pastor, the members and God! Satanists can and do use the name of Jesus. The one thing they can't do is pass the test given in 1 John 4. A number of ministers of large and wealthy churches in our country are satanists. One of the most destructive satanic doctrines of today is the health-and-wealth message. One simple incantation by a high satanist will assign a demon to every person attending the church in which he is involved. Key members will be afflicted with physical illness, difficulties in concentrating, confusion, fatigue, difficulties in praying, etc. The incredible number of powerless, dead Christian churches in our land today is a testimony to the success of Satan's carefully planned tactics.


The Bible says you reap what you sow. When spells, curses, etc. are destroyed and reversed, often vengeful and murderous spirits return and attack those who sent them forth. Dabbling with witchcraft often backfires on the practitioner. Thwarted demons can be erratic and extremely dangerous.

For those who make contact with occult spirits, there will be terrible and certain repercussions in the form of sickness, misery, insanity, marital upheaval, problems and sometimes an early death. They can invade, not only your life, but the lives of those who are related to you or are under your covering and authority.

According to Scripture, a witch should not live. Witchcraft will keep you from entering THE KINGDOM OF GOD. You may die early physically, die eternally spiritually, or die a slow death by living a miserable life here on earth. Kings Saul and Ahaziah died for getting counsel from magicians.

Eze. 13:17-23 Prophesy out of their own heart. Save the souls alive that come unto you? Save the souls alive that should not live. Strengthened the hands of the wicked (witchcraft).


Have you been bewitched? The battlefield is the mind. We must believe and know The Scriptures. You will be dominated, manipulated and intimidated. Many families have suffered moral, physical, financial and spiritual problems because someone engaged in an occult practice. They can be brought into a state of oppression or depression; and unexplainable sadness, anguish and heart affliction when there is no reason for feeling downcast or disheartened.

Depression comes to the heart of the righteous through magical practices. How many ministers and other Christians have backslidden because of heavy demonic influence induced by witchcraft? Terrible things can happen to GOD's people through witchcraft: they can be saddened (depression) or they can be turned away (backsliding).

The Scripture indicates that we are a favorite target of witchcraft which is hunting (catching or snaring) our souls (mind, will, emotions). Through witchcraft GOD's people can be brought into bondage, thus becoming captives, having their souls entrapped.

The occult can wreak havoc physically, emotionally and spiritually. With the widespread scattering of various occult practices, it is unlikely that anyone has missed some evil inheritance. People suffer many types of physical, mental and emotional diseases. You can curse yourself and others. Spells, potions, enchantments and curses can be cast on a person.

Eze. 13:17-23 Hunt the souls of my people. Pollute me among my people. To slay the souls that should not die. Made the heart of the righteous sad (Christians).

Through witchcraft, God's people can become sad, depressed, captive, killed, backslidden, entrapped.


In southern Louisiana today great numbers of people are under heavy demonic oppression resulting from occult involvements of ancestors many years ago. Voodoo is still very strong in Louisiana and other southern states. Many have ancestors brought in as slaves from Africa where demon worship was routinely practiced. One demon who spoke French stated he was from Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Because of inherited problems, everyone needs some deliverance.


Not only can witchcraft affect individuals, but families, churches, cities and nations. There is tremendous power to affect and harm individuals or thousands of people simultaneously. Where witchcraft is practiced or tolerated, there will be widespread demonic activity. The Bible declares that cities, individuals, churches and entire nations can be destroyed and enslaved in one way or another through witchcraft. Psychic prayers (witchcraft) and charismatic witchcraft have an effect on people. The most common way for witchcraft to operate in a woman is manipulation. In a man, it is intimidation.


The entire drug culture is a clear example of sorcery (pharmakia) at work. Together with sorcery goes sexual immorality and violence. Satan has the power to take away peace. The reason there are so many problems, nervous breakdowns and so much restlessness is that people have lost their tranquility.

Hundreds of Christians, many spirit-filled, are gobbling pills by the pound. These chemicals can weaken, poison and intoxicate. A demon said that they just feed on medicine; they love it and lap it up. Demons get a great deal of mileage from the suffering, inconvenience, expense, tension, misery and grief induced by desperate resorts to medication, surgery, etc. in a vain effort to effect cures.


Those who have experience in dealing with witchcraft have seen many killed by occult power. They could extract a man's human spirit and inject a demonic spirit to live that man's life in his body. There is no reason why these people should die, but through witchcraft they could be slain prematurely. You will be amazed to discover how much influence the occult, witchcraft, magic, sorcery, etc. exercise upon lives. Oppression from curses, spells, hexes, etc. can be sent upon us by envious enemies who seek to harm us or kill us.

Many people who are under a curse or spell have gone to a practitioner of the occult sciences and instead of being helped they got worse. The practitioner of the occult moves the demons to another organ in the body or exchanges the less powerful demon for a more powerful demon. This creates madness, epilepsy or something else worse than what was originally wrong. Witchcraft and sorcery are magic in their worst forms and represent tremendous evil spiritual power.


Sorcery operates through objects. Articles of clothing, photographs, candles, incense, rings, etc. are used. There can be witchcraft burials in and around the church, burning black candles in the church and leaving dead birds at the door of the church. A witchcraft potion can be slipped into food or drink. When you bring a cursed thing in your house you become cursed. Books on the occult may cause an oppressive atmosphere in a home by just being present.


Effects are divorce, quarrelling, immorality, fibrosis, barrenness, promiscuity, failure in GOD's work and spiritual harassments.


The following are spiritism effects of being involved as a medium, charmer, sorcerer:

1. Mediumistic Affinity

2. Resistance To The Things Of GOD

3. Distortion Of Character

4. Emotional Disorders

5. A Breeding Ground For Mental Illness

6. Oppression Of Descendants

7. Frequent Suicides

8. Ghosts And Poltergeists Result From Sins Of Sorcery

9. Frequent Diseases


The worst form of occult ritual abuse is that done by the Satanists who program the person to follow Satan all of their lives. This is trauma-based Monarch Mind-Control of Programmed Slaves: total and undetectable mind-control. Their terrorized fragmented-divided dark-side alters with Multiple Personality Disorders (MPD) are brutal, secret, immoral and controlled to function in illusion and lies. There are blood covenants and sacrifices, sexual sealings, invocations of demons, demonizations of fetuses with Moon Child rituals, voodoo, witchcraft, psychics, drugs, hypnotism, electronics, electroshock, hunger, fatigue, tenseness, threats, violence and other control methodologies. Fear, terror and torture are used to split the mind and develop animalistic demonic drives to survive. Controlled LSD trips in sensory deprivation tanks, chronology of layering in mind-control programming, Cranial manipulation, movie mind-control, implants, nanobots, thought-transfer, soul entrapment, dissociative programmed multiplicity, controlling minds electronically, implants, energy beamed at minds, and other secret technologies.


Sleep is a war front of demonic manipulation and attacks. Attacks in dreams include witchcraft initiation curses, spells, arrows and fiery darts. Demonic prosecution may involve death or financial adversity.


Effects include mental and physical fatigue, confusion, emptiness, accidents, disorientation, affliction, demonic cage of poverty and material adversity, DNA bondage and soul ties, jealousy, and loss of self control, reputation and position.


Food may be contaminated by demonic rituals and spirits. Drinking blood, and consumption of witch doctor material, such as holy water, brings bondage.


Implants, also known as inserts or object links are common in Satanic Ritual Abuse survivors. These are usually tiny foreign objects which are inserted subcutaneously in the child during rituals after being blessed on the altar of Satan.


A trigger is any event that precipitates a response. The triggers we refer to have been purposely placed, usually to control the behavior of a person at a later time and place.


There must be legal grounds or legal holds to open a person to attack. Curses have little effect if we are faithful to GOD and there is no sin in our lives. Failure to follow GOD single-hearted can cause the loss of health, position, power and literally everything. The familiar or family spirits are perpetuated by each generation.

Most people mistakenly assume that witchcraft cannot affect a Christian. The Bible says it can if we give the ground by tolerating or permitting something which becomes legal grounds on which Satan can operate in our lives. A vow to the Kingdom Of Evil is taken seriously by GOD.


Through the cross, Jesus administered to Satan and his kingdom a total, permanent, irreversible defeat. It is the only source of power for real Christian living. He stripped them of their weapons. But we must apply the victory that Jesus has already won and walk in that victory.


Divine judgement and wrath are poured out upon anyone delving in the occult sciences. GOD hates, detests and abhors witchcraft and decrees the death penalty for it. There are dangers which face human beings who traffic in any of these evil arts and sciences.

Witchcraft is the satanic supernatural, the occult in all its forms, which operates in every area of society and includes divination (fortune telling or knowledge) and sorcery. Perhaps the single most powerful weapon of witchcraft is curses. Suffering is inflicted on a person who is bewitched, a person upon whom a curse is placed.


Satan's aim which he is steadily and consistently pursuing, is to become the ruler of this world. Satan's supreme ambition is to be worshiped. His goal is to obscure the fact that the benefits GOD has provided come to us solely on the basis of the cross which is the means of his total defeat. His delight is to defile GOD's image in man, destroy it and humiliate it, and he is working tirelessly to do accomplish that goal. Flattery and lies are Satan's way of doing things. He is accusing us before the throne of GOD.

He is the ruler of those who are in rebellion against GOD. Satan is the ruler of the realm of authority of the surface of the earth, contiguous with the earth. In worshiping the Antichrist, they will actually be worshiping Satan who will empower him. He will reassert his control over humanity if we leave the work of the cross of JESUS CHRIST. He knows our weaknesses.


Rebellion is a twin of witchcraft; stubbornness - idolatry. The root of witchcraft is rebellion. The illegitimate power that supports rebellion is the power of witchcraft. Wherever there is rebellion, sooner or later there will be witchcraft. Witchcraft can and does definitely affect those living in rebellion. To suffer afflictions in mind, body and spirit is a direct consequence of rebellion to force you to turn to GOD. Rebellion brings financial, moral, spiritual and emotional damage our way; personally, and in our families and businesses.

At least five things are the direct result of rebellion: darkness, bondage, affliction, falling down and backsliding. The stubborn person makes idols out of his own opinions. Many rebels also went into the occult, the satanic supernatural and witchcraft. Pride is still the most deadly of sins.


Everything that Balaam said came to pass, possessed tremendous gifts and potential, GOD backed his word in every detail, was a seer and fell into trances. He had visitations, angelic manifestations, profound understanding, constant communication with GOD, revelation of the principles of how GOD operated and great miracles.

Balaam was gifted with spiritual eyesight and hearing, was given revelations, and had discernment, visions, trances and prophecies. The SPIRIT OF GOD came upon him. He was anointed and endued with power. These bear witness that beyond a shadow of doubt Balaam was a true prophet of GOD but became a soothsayer (fortune teller) and was killed by Israel. He allowed the desire for money and power to destroy him. It was GOD's permissive will but not perfect will for this to happen.


Because of evil soul ties to my vehicle, I loved that car, it looked good and it had no payments. After every accident, the car came back looking like new and I decided to keep it. Meanwhile, I kept getting injured over and over again, and each time more seriously. My family and I were naive Christians who never knew about spiritual warfare until much damage had been done to us.

I was a successful Realtor and placed my license at an office that had one female agent and many male agents. The female agent was a very demonized Jezebelic woman. This person had to be the only female in that office and in total control. After attempts of friendship and building a professional relationship failed, I minded my own business and stayed out of her way. She set out to destroy my reputation and livelihood, all documented. Unknowingly, I had been the only female agent she could not run off easily. I did not know or understand at that time about these things but God was trying to direct me. I bought Pigs in the Parlor by Frank Hammond, but could never read or understand it.

I purchased a 1987 GrandAm program vehicle from a car auction through my brother-in-law. I was very happy and proud of my new car that I had worked so hard for. My living parents helped me with the purchase. While parked at work the first week, three or four small scratches appeared on the rear-window panel of my car. I instinctively knew that the lady had done this out of jealousy.

In the beginning it seemed like normal car stuff: flat tires, running low on fuel constantly, funny sounds coming out of the engine that could not be found, dead battery, strange electrical problems in the wiring, replacement of the computer system, same headlight burning out, car would not drive straight, moldy smell, and needed front end tie rods, three windshields, shocks, etc.

As the Jezebel was relentless in her torment and harassments, I moved to a larger city to further my real estate career. A witch will not stop until she sees you destroyed or you take authority in Jesus Name, and rebuke the attacks and fiery darts hurled at you. She continued to attack my profession by trying to get my license revoked from the Real Estate Board. I was still helping people in both cities; this is legal if you are a Broker, which I was. The Board found no basis for discipline.

The attacks accelerated to include accidents. The vehicle was involved in the following accidents. The only damage to the vehicle that did NOT occur was to the roof of the car. I believe that was intended for the final destruction in a rollover accident from which God saved me.

1. Front-end left panel struck when brakes failed to work properly at a stop sign and allowed the front end to extend about six inches into the road. Young girl did not see me. This was on a sunny day with wide lanes and little traffic. Two broken teeth.

2. Brake company could not find anything wrong. Brakes failed again the next week. Still could not find anything wrong. Replaced the master cylinder to be safe.

3. Head-on by a young woman without insurance, license, lights and vehicle ownership while drinking in a thunderstorm. Injury forced me to give up my Realtor license thus loosing my profession. The week before the second accident, the vehicle had just been returned to me due to the first accident. The day before the accident I had cancelled my non-insured insurance to save monthly premium. With no health insurance and disabled for 3 months, I was left in great debt. I would have lost the car had not my parents finished paying off the last $1500. Head injury, whiplash, back-hip problems.

4. Rear-ended while stopped in a line of traffic at a stoplight. Young man in car behind me, also previously stopped, steps on the gas and hits me. No injury.

5. A young man dropped a large white rock off an overpass onto my car. It struck the right front panel and not the windshield. Praise God, no injury.

6. Rear-ended while sitting at a stop sign during the day by a young lady and her mom. Whip lash; back, neck and hip problems again.

7. Rear-ended while sitting at a stop light at night by young lady going at a high rate of speed. Serious injury: whip lash, low-impact brain damage, optic-nerve damage; back, hip and shoulder damage.

8. A witch in church prayed a curse on me for accident and death.

9. Engine blew and the replacement engine was wrong type. Dad sold car.

10.Older couple was involved in two accidents in this vehicle. God allowed me to meet them later when I saw my old car in a fast-food parking lot. Upon discovering their accidents, I told them I thought the car was cursed and to get rid of it. The man was not really interested as a soul tie had already been formed with the car. He said the same thing I had said, "It runs great and it is paid for". I then realized that the curses which I thought were directed at me were also attached to the vehicle itself.

11.A deer had run in front of the car. The deer's head went through the windshield and barely missed the driver. He still denied the curse. They were rear-ended by a large truck that sent both to the hospital and more operations were scheduled. They still wanted to keep the vehicle.

A witch prayed for me at a church meeting. She cursed me and sent two to three particularly nasty demons to destroy me with an automobile accident on my way home.

I was telling two ladies from the same church how unusual the prayer was that this person had prayed for me. She said that a Cardinal was paid to pray against me using red candles on a mantel. They suggested I stay overnight with one of them at a hotel, as it was late, and fly out the next day. Praise God for their discernment.

At 11:00 p.m. exactly, God had me look at the clock. I felt something enter the room and could only say "help me" before my body was slammed up against the headboard of the bed.

An electrical shock starting in my head, like an epileptic fit, ran through my body. My feet were pointed stiffly downward toward the wall. My chest felt like an elephant was pushing down on it. It is difficult to describe the tremendous amount of pain and pressure. I could not move as the weight was holding me down, I tried to get up but I could not move.

The lady said that this was a demon spirit that attacks the heart and was trying to get into the heart. I didn't care; I just wanted her to pray this thing off me. I said "pray for me".

The attack ended almost as quickly as it started. Praise the one and only true God and the Blood of Jesus. I was exhausted, hurting and confused. It was astonishing. If I had taken my scheduled flight, I would have been sitting in my car driving at 70 MPH on a dark, empty stretch of highway at 11:00 P.M. I know exactly where I would have been at that time. I hated that part of the trip. My foot would have pushed the accelerator all the way down. I would have been pushed back in the seat of the car and not be able to move my arms to control the vehicle or stop.

Two months later, I went to my physician, as my chest still hurt a little. He asked me if I had been hit in the chest as the sack around my heart was bruised.

The new 2002 vehicle is also effected. The first week, someone at church backed into the the back of my new car and left their bumper mark permanently on the bumper. Last May, one week before my last day of work, I was once again rear-ended. The battle continues.
