The teaching on
the ministry of witchcraft is one of the most neglected teachings among
Christian believers. The understanding of most people is either shallow or
limited in this area. The problem of witchcraft is as old as human kind’s
history.
Witches and
wizards have operated from time immemorial. Sadly enough, many Christians are
afraid of reading any literature on the subject of witchcraft. They prefer to
remain ignorant as a result of the fear of receiving spiritual harm from
witches and wizards. Unfortunately, such people have suffered in ignorance.
Some of them have been attacked by witches and wizards.

You may ask?
What insights has the Bible given us concerning this subject? Let us read
Ezekiel 8:7-12:
7And
he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the
wall. 8Then said he unto me, son of man, dig now is the wall; and
when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. 9And he said unto me,
go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here. 10So I
went in and saw: and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable
beasts, and all the idols at the house of Israel, portrayed upon the wall round
about. 11And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of
the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of
Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense
went up. 12Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the
ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of
his imagery? For they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the
earth”.

This passage
reveals one of the earliest recorded manifestations of witchcraft in the
Scriptures. Witches and wizards were operating in the form of creeping things,
abominable things and idols. The Lord gave Ezekiel this revelation.
Do you know that
you can also pray to the point, when God can give you a revelation which will
bring you face to face with the physical operations of witchcraft.
Let us also look
at the book of Nahum 3:1 – 4:
1 Woe to the bloody city! It is all full of lies and
robbery; the prey departeth not; 2The noise of a whip, and the noise of the
rattling of the wheels, and of the pransing horses, and of the jumping
chariots. 3The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering
spear; and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and
there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses;4 Because
of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well favoured harlot, the mistress of
witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through
her witchcrafts”.
This passage
gives us a very clear picture about the reality and the operations of
witchcraft. Does this not sound like a clear picture of what is happening in
our cities today?

Facts of the Passage…
One, the
practice of witchcraft goes side by side with the shedding of blood.
Two,
prostitution or halotry and witchcraft are not strange bed fellows. Witchcraft
abounds wherever there is prostitution. Nobody can be a prostitude without
being initiated into witchraft. It is a pity that some men are foolishly
initiated into witchcraft by committing immorality with prostitutes. Prostitution
is the mother of witchcraft, Conversely, witchcraft is the mother of
prostitution.
Three,
witchcraft brings about multiple deaths.
Recently, there
was a terrible catastrophe in Jesse town Nigeria where almost one
thousand souls were lost in a fire incident. Was it ordinary? It was a clear
manifestation of the wickedness of witchcraft. This shows us that any city or
community that is dominated by witchcraft will be bloody in every practical
sense of the word.
Let us look at
another equally important passage. Isa. 49:24 – 26:
24Shall
the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? 25But
thus saith the LORD. Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and
the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that
contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. 26 And I will feed them
that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their
own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy
Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob”.
This passage
teaches that there are two types of captives; lawful & Unlawful   captives.

Some demonic operations of witchcraft…
The Evil Mother-In-Law…
A mother in-law
resorted to the use of witchcraft after failing to exert the kind of influence
which she wanted, on her son’s family. She was very much unhappy with her son’s
wife. She came in around 6 a.m. one day and told the man and his wife, “Watch out! I’ll soon prove to you that
there are certain powers which cannot be seen with the naked eye. I am going to
teach you a lesson. I will prove to you that this house belongs to my son”

After this, the woman turned back and went away. The family woke up the next
day to behold a strange scene. The man’s wife was disturbed by sounds of
footsteps of more than a dozen men or women. She wondered why such a crowd was
coming to visit them early that day. The door opened on its own accord and she
almost fainted when she saw a group of headless bodies, who tried to pounce on
her with the intention of beating her up. She was scared, afraid and confused.
She shouted for help but none came. Her only saving grace was the timely
intervention of her housemaid.
Incidentally both
the woman and her housemaid were barely two weeks old in the church. Somehow,
the housemaid had learnt one or two fire prayers. She therefore began to
command the fire of the Holy Ghost upon the strange demonic beings. Somehow it
worked. The evil personalities were refrained as a result of the force of the
little girl’s prayers. The demonic beings then decided to warn the little girl,
“Why are you commanding fire upon us?
What is your business here? Why are you trying to rescue her? After all we did
not come for you. Stop your prayers or we shall deal with you”.
  However the girl continued her prayers until
the demons decided to go out of the house in a single file. They took the
staircase and departed from the house.
That day was a
horrible day for everyone in that environment. The demonic presence was so
palpable that everyone who passed through the environment suffered one calamity
or the other. That shows us how terrible 
witchcraft operations can be.
This example
goes beyond the level of the elementary stories of witchcraft which we often
hear.
The Juju man and the lost Property…
A man lost his
property to a so-called spiritualist. Although the spiritualist had warned him
to steer clear from the property, the man refused and said that  he could not abandon his building. The
spiritualist visited the man and ordered him to steer clear of the building.
The owner of the house said, “How can I
abandon my house, why must you use your magical powers to dispossess me of my house?
This house belongs to me”.
Then, the spiritualist became infuriated. All of
a sudden, he hit the wall with his fist and three old men came to the living
room from the direction of the man’ s bedroom. The man’s hair stood on end, “How did you get here?” he shouted. “We have
been here for one year. This house does not belong
to you”, they replied. That is another manifestation of witchcraft.
The Hunted Bride & her confused Bridegroom…
A man and a
woman informed their pastor about their intention to get married. The pastor
interviewed them and decided to fix a date for their wedding. Certain strange
things then began to happen as soon as a date was fixed. The woman who was
supposed to be happy went every where feeling sad. Everybody was surprised and
people were asking, “Why is this woman
not excited about her wedding?”
No body could penetrate into her heart.
Even the bride groom did not succeed in extracting any information from her.
However, the
wedding took place as planned. The bride and the bridegroom were conveyed to
their home in a beautiful car. Later on, the newly wedded lady refused to enter
her husband’s bedroom. The husband was both confused and embarrassed. Somehow,
he felt that the woman was only being shy. He managed to drag her inside the
room. He looked up at her and said, “Is
there any problem. Please don’t hide anything from me. I am sure you know that
I am your husband”.
The woman said, okay, I am going to show you who I am.
Come nearer. Without saying anything, she undressed and drew the attention of
her husband at her private part. Behold, she was an hermaphrodite. She had both
male and female organs. That was not all, her leg was exactly like the leg of a
lion.
The man almost
fainted. He quickly grabbed her hands and said, “Let us go back to the
pastor”.
He narrated his strange experience to the pastor saying, “Pastor you must dissolve this wedding. Can
I show you what I discovered on the lady that you joined together with me? This
marriage cannot work. You must dissolve it now”.
The pastor looked up and
down and said, “I am sorry. It is
impossible. After all you know that the Bible says, ‘What God has joined
together let no man put asunder’. After all you came to me and said that you
wanted to marry each other”.
The new bridegroom did not know what to do.
Later the wife
was queried concerning why she did not disclose her condition. Every one was
surprised when she said, “It is not my
fault. I was not born that way. I found myself in that condition exactly on the
day when our wedding date was fixed. I was so confused that I could not tell
anyone. I just found myself in that condition one moth ago”.
That is an
example of one of the terrible operations of witchcraft. No doubt those who
were responsible for such wickedness would have been present at the wedding
ceremony
