Understanding and combating the forces of Witchcraft! Part. 4
A familiar spirit is a spirit that is familiar with a person, a place or a thing. This Spirit has an extensive and detail history of all that concerns that person, place or thing. One that is possessed by a spirit of divination enables them to communicate with familiar spirits of others. It is through these means that false prophets, fake Evangelist and the like are able to give the grand illusion as if they are hearing from God with their so called “prophetic declarations” when the truth is they’re really hearing from devils.
Following up from our last teaching on understanding and combating the forces of witchcraft Part 3. We will pick up where we ended in our last teaching. For those of you who have not read that article I strongly suggest that you do so, in order to get a better understanding of today’s teaching. Today we’re going to unveil the understanding concerning a branch of witchcraft that “False Prophets” retrieve their information from namely “Familiar spirits” and labeling it as the work or spirit of God operating in them. This teaching will also give you a better understanding as to how these things not only work but how to decipher the spirit of God from the spirit of Satan that operates in these false prophets. I promise you, that what you are about to learn today will simultaneously give clarity as to why your encounter with these folks has produced a rain of consistent confusion, disappointment, chaos and failure coupled with the inevitable, which is the manifestation of evil instead of good in regards to their prophecies they have spoken over you.
Scripture makes it crystal clear in its position regarding such diabolical activities, “There shall not be found among you any one that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire (evil sacrifice), or that uses divination (contacting the spirit realm via demonic means), or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch or a charmer (folks that speak or send curses), or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer (one that supposedly communicates with the dead).
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 from before thee” Deuteronomy 18:10-14.
“Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God” Leviticus 19:31.
Unfortunately, our televisions, radios, churches and magazines are overwhelmed with “False Prophets” giving a so called “word” from the Lord. Regrettably for the spiritually mislead, these false prophets will continue to be successful at misleading and hijacking the destiny and finances of their devotees, simply because the people refuse to study, read and seek God for themselves. Instead their leaders, be it their Pastors, Bishops, Evangelist or whoever has become the replacement to the laws, rules, protocols and commandments of God. In fact most of these leaders via their pride and arrogance have amended some portions of the Holy Scriptures to suit their selfish desires while at the same time bewitching those that insist on viewing them as gods as opposed to referencing the bible as a benchmark against their works.
The reality is, Christians that are hoodwinked by these false prophets who claim to be spiritually free are in reality submerged in spiritual captivity as a result of their limited knowledge in regards to such things. Isaiah the prophet said it this way, “Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge” Isaiah 5:13. Knowledge of what you may ask? Well, the lack of knowledge or awareness of the witchcraft being perpetrating from the pulpits by false prophets who are influenced by demonic entities. As a reminder a familiar spirit is not only familiar with you but your entire generations of the past. This spirit knows what makes you angry, sad, happy etc. However this spirit is limited only to what it observes from and of you, via what you speak and what you do coupled with generational patterns and behavior.
Therefore a false prophet operating with a spirit of divination is in fact communicating spiritually through demonic means in retrieving this surface information. Meaning if you were discussing purchasing a new home or you were telling a friend how you would like to get married etc. then this is what this false prophet will reveal to you, which the familiar spirit has communicated to him. On the other hand you being completely ignorant of what’s really happening in the spirit realm immediately become convinced that God is actually speaking through this individual. As a heads up, Satan and his kingdom cannot read minds, they are totally dependent on the history they have gathered on you and your ancestors over the years that would make it appear as if they are tapping into the spirit of God. One with a familiar spirit is hell bent on trying to convince their victim and audience that it is the power of God operating through them. So they’ll make statements like, “Have we met before?”, “Did you speak to me prior to this service?”, etc, etc. Another sign would be, right after their “ministering in the prophetic” it is usually accompanied with the distrubution of “anointed” cloths, oils, etc and certainly with the begging of money. The reality of what’s really happening is, whatever is being given to their victims or taken from them (like their monies) these things becomes a point of contact. This point of contact becomes the physical source of evil spirits trafficking in and out of their lives and the false prophet controlling them via assigned evil spirits. As a result the victim’s life from that point forward will always be filled with and drenched in disappointment, failure, chaos and confusion.
All of what I have just mentioned is aside from these false prophets manipulating the health of their victims via their victim’s unknown co-operation. Here is how it’s done; after these false prophets have communicated with your familiar spirit and revealed stuff to you that they already have a history of, of course. Make no mistake these false prophets who at this point are totally aware that they have secured not only your trust but your belief in them. So now they would say to you, “To prove to you God is speaking to me concerning you, there has been a pain in your back, neck, head or wherever”. In reality more than likely this is not true but again because you are already convinced that you are dealing with a “Prophet of God” more than likely you will agree. What you are not aware of is that in the spirit world, spirits are always seeking human agreement or cooperation on whatever it is that they desire to be manifested in the natural realm such as, depression, sickness, poverty etc. Again, things of the spirits needs human co-operation in order for things that are spiritual to be physically manifested. So when this false prophet says you’ve been having a pain in your stomach and your reply is, “Yes I have” at that very moment you are unknowingly agreeing to the spirit that will manifest the reality of that pain, this is the law of agreement at work. Remember, wherever two or more agree on earth shall be manifest. Satan always copies what God does and he is not only legalistic but he cannot operate outside the Holy Scriptures which are indeed the laws of God that everyone and all creation is subject to. So if you are agreeing knowingly or unknowingly with evil spirits your agreement will bring about manifestation.
Again, if you were using your bible as the standard to assess these false prophets then you would understand when scripture said that you’ll know them by their fruit, Matthew 7: 16. However, let us look a little closer at another scripture to see what is truly being revealed to us. Leviticus 19:31 says, “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God”. This scripture is clearly saying to those who decided to use it as a guide that any affiliation with those that operate under the influence of familiar spirits will defile them. The word defile means to make foul, dirty, or unclean; pollute; taint or to debase. In other words any contact with such people will change you from the original plans God had for your life and assign you to a life of misery.
Folks! If a person is truly a Prophet of God then they do not have to waste time trying to convince you that they are of God. The word of God which is also the power of God speaks for itself. Furthermore anyone that is substituting the word of God with money, cloth, oils or whatever else is clearly of the devil. Now on the other hand if they are using scripture as the beginning middle and ending as to the reason for the cloth, oils etc then this is a different story.
I will end here today by saying that ignorance and idolatry has become the greatest destroyer of Christians. Meaning they have ignored the teaching of the Holy Scriptures and substituted it for their idols such as their Pastors, favorite preachers, Evangelist etc, without ever testing the spirits operating in these folks. Neither have they assessed them by the fruit they’ve been producing. Like the prophet Isaiah said, God’s people (my people) are in captivity because they lack knowledge that comes only from God which is the only antidote in setting them free.
Join me in my next teaching on “Understanding and combating the forces of witchcraft part. 5” As we address “Water Spirits” or the “Spirit marine kingdom” unfortunately this is one of the most powerful arms of witchcraft that a whole lot of prophetess and prophets are influenced by and are operating under. Join me next time as we expose these DESTINY DESTROYERS!

  1. Interesting.
    I had a dream this morning that I met a cloaked figure in a black hood with white face and dead eyes. He was quite pale and had a sinister smile and said “Hello Miriam”. I woke up immediately after he said it. My name is not Miriam or anything close to it, although it is a three syllable name as well, and have the same number of letters.
    Looking forward to the next installment, Rev.
