There is no divination against Jacob,
no evil omens against Israel.
It will now be said of Jacob
and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’
Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow,
an undeserved curse does not come to rest.
Hexes and curses have a common goal; to limit their victim, reducing them to a miserable existence with a darkened mind that struggles to make bold decisions and invariably fail to take advantage of the opportunities before them, all towards their untimely demise, broken and dejected. The picture is diametrically opposed to the ideal intended for man by GOD when he was first created. There was a garden with all the fresh produce man would ever need, even gold lay at the bank of the river, and there was no uncertainty about the mandate. Make all things fruitful and multiply fill the rest of barren earth with the beauty you have here.
Adam was bewitched. How else does one explain such non-activity, quietly listening to a deceptive interview the snake had with his wife, all the while he was right there next to her. She did not have look for him somewhere in the garden to give him the forbidden fruit.
She took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, WHO WAS WITH HER.
Witchcraft gets people numb. Decision making is put off for another time, while opportunities pass by. Wrong conclusions are reached even with good information given. Slanted cause of action becomes a pattern and the results nothing less than perpetual misery.
1. IT IS THE SINGLE MOST STRATEGIC TOOL EVEN AGAINST THE GOSPEL
2 Corinthians 4:4
For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.
The Gospel brings light. It is the light. No reasonable person can ignore or reject such an offer of Life and Blessedness in this present life and the one to come! But people do ever so often not because the Gospel is lacking in appeal, or power, not at all! But the concluding processes of their minds are specifically targeted for darkening by ‘diabolos’ and his crew.
2. ONCE IT FELL THE GOSPEL ADVANCED FORCEFULLY
And many of those who had practiced curious, magical arts collected their books and [throwing them,book after book, on the pile] burned them in the sight of everybody. When they counted the value of them, they found it amounted to 50,000 pieces of silver (about $9,300).
Thus the Word of the Lord [concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God] GREW and SPREAD and INTENSIFIED, PREVAILING MIGHTILY.
By nature, we are all susceptible to curses and bewitchment because of the sinful nature inherited though Adam.
Infamous practitioners of this craft are scattered all over the scriptures Balaam, Jezebel,
3. ONCE GOD BLESSES NO MAN CAN CURSE
How can I curse
those whom God has not cursed?
How can I denounce
those whom the Lord has not denounced?
Stay in the Blessing – the pronouncements of wickedness shall not stand against your future and family Salvations.
# WITCHCRAFT MUST FALL
4. ONCE GOD HAS BLESSED NATURE WILL TESTIFY AGAINST YOUR CURSING OPPONENTS
When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat it with his staff. Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?” Balaam answered the donkey, “You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.” The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?” “No,” he said. Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown. The angel of the Lord asked him, “Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? I have come here to oppose you because your path is a reckless one before me.
5. ONCE CHRIST IS RECEIVED THE CURSE ON AN INDIVIDUAL CAN BE BROKEN AND REPLACED WITH THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM
Christ has REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the BLESSING of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
1. Give thanks for the finished work the Lord Jesus did on the Cross when HE became a curse on our behalf
2. Pray that the eyes of the understanding of every one around you may be open to see the light of Glory
3. Take a firm stand against all forces of darkness that have been overshadowing the impact of the Gospel in our community
