The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?  (Proverbs 18:14) 

Years ago the Spirit of God showed me that that human soul is just as fragile as an egg.  Just as you would handle an egg with the utmost care and not just throw it around, so must you be careful what you expose your soul to.  In Proverbs 4:23, the Word of God warns us that we are to guard our hearts with all diligence, for out of it flows the issues of life. This simply means that we have to be careful what we allow to happen to us and who we allow access to us.

We  have to be selective of what advice we take; which relationships we pursue; which decisions to make; which occupations to go after and the like.  The wrong people speaking into your life can derail you and cause you years of unnecessary heartache or despair.

The good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good, and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks. (Luke 6:45)

If your heart is pure, you will be able to produce what is good and pure.  However, if your soul becomes hurt or wounded then it is susceptible to soul contaminants such as bitterness, resentment, hatred, jealousy, envy, strife or the like.  These ungodly contaminants cause you to see everything in life from a distorted perception and can attract negative people, negative experiences and even cures to your life.

In Luke 6:45, the Word of God reveals that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks; meaning, whatever is in your heart, is what is going to come out of your spirit.

The truth of the matter is, however, whatever the condition or “health” of your soul is directly related to how sound your decisions in life will be and how you will rebound from devastating experiences. This is why you must protect your soul; your mind, against negative thoughts and negative-speaking people; your will, against what you want that may not line up with the will of God for your life; your intellect, against how you interpret or process what  you experienced, heard or felt; and your emotions, against negative people who do not care about you or how you feel.

If your soul ever becomes wounded, only the love of God can deliver you, even in the hidden cavities of your soul, from deep-seated hurt and destructive soul wounds.  Jesus knows everything about you.  He created you and knows how to heal you if you want to be free.  (John 8:36)


No matter how deeply rooted or how long your soul has been scarred, the spirit of God knows how to heal you. He is the only one to whom you can freely give all of your heart, soul and self.  You can freely cast all of your hurt, your disappointment, your pain upon Him and know that you are totally safe because He knows how to love and deliver you out from the bondages of every soul wound or soul scar! (Psalm 102:20)

Whatever the assault, you never saw it coming!  Not only were you left to make sense of it all, but no one knew how deeply your soul had become wounded or scarred.

Your soul comprises of your mind, your will, your intellect and emotions.  Your soul is the part of you that you cannot see that God has given you to interpret life.  Man is a spirit who lives in a body and possesses a soul.  When God breathed into Man or mankind, the Bible says that Man became a living soul (or a living nephesh – Greek); a created being given the ability to think, suggest, prefer, make decisions and more, just like God.

The essence of who a man or a person is lies within the DNA or cavities of his soul. The essence of who a person or a man shall become also lies within the arena of the soul.  Therefore, the enemy knows that if he can disfigure, attack or wound your soul, he can destroy the very essence of God’s idea of who you were supposed to become.

Soul wounds and soul scars are one of the most effective weapons that the enemy employs in spiritual warfare.   Once your soul has been wounded, if you are not healed or delivered, these wounds can alter your entire life.

The sudden death of a loved one.  Addiction to alcohol or drugs.  A brutal rape as a teenager. Physical abuse as a child.  A bitter divorce from the man or woman with whom you vowed to spend the rest of your life.  Bankruptcy and the sudden loss of all possessions are just some traumatic experiences that have plagued people’s lives and derailed them from living the life that God truly has for them. Bound by spirits of heartbreak, fear, insecurity, disappointment, rejection, depression, unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment, many waste precious time living beneath their privilege.

Some attacks can be so devastating or traumatizing that one blow can you leave you in a lifetime struggle to be free. These attacks are launched by the enemy to disfigure your soul and eventually sabotage your destiny and purpose in God.

1 John 3:8

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Who can heal a wounded soul?  Jesus can!   in 1 John 3:8, we are encouraged that the purpose Jesus came was destroy every work of the enemy in your life.  If it is affliction the enemy placed upon your life, then Jesus is able to deliver you from it. (Psalm 34:19) No matter what assault, affliction or attack the enemy launched against your life nor how devastating the experience Jesus came to heal you, no matter where you have been wounded.   God loves you so much and He has great things in store for your life.  When He created you, He breathed an essence of Himself in you and now He wants to see what He had in mind for you come to pass.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

The spirit of a thing carries the nature and characteristic of that thing.   Witchcraft is a demonic practice which conjures up devastating attacks to the mind and soul of an individual in an effort to cause harm, injury or pain.

This wicked practice targets the minds of people, can originate from several different sources and can manifest in several different ways.   Some of these ways were generated by the home environment you grew up in or the social environment in which you are connected      known as Household Witchcraft.

Household witchcraft is very subtle because this represents commonly held tendencies, attitudes or beliefs that you were either taught or grew up experiencing but are now working against you; bringing destructive curses upon your life.  These subtle workings are all a part of the enemy’s wicked devices which seek to sabotage your destiny and leave you void of experiencing all that God has for you.  (John 10:10)

For some men, you may have grown up seeing your father smoking, drinking or having a lot of women and at the time he says to you that these are the things you should be doing to prove you are a man.  For some women, they may have grown up seeing their aunts have children out of wedlock and believed that this is how you are supposed to live your life.  On the other hand, some women may have witnessed their father abusing their mother and believe that this is the way a man shows love to a woman, by abusing her.

Household witchcraft can be very subtle.  These practices are so familiar to you that you have unknowingly embraced them as your personality, a part of who you are or a part of what you do.  How many times have someone tried to bring something to your attention and your response, generally is, “Well, that’s just the way I am.” Or “I’m just being myself.” Or, “Well, growing up, this is what we did.”

It has to do with certain beliefs held by family members, friends, coworkers or those believed by a group called your “inner circle” which seek to manipulate your mind and fight against or resist the will, plan and purpose of God in your life.

Anything that fights against the will of God for your life is of the devil.  In 3 John 1:2, the Word of God reveals that above everything else in life, it is the will of the Father that you prosper because your soul is prospering.  The prosperity of your soul speaks to a peace, love, joy and soundness of mind, knowing that everything you are doing is in divine alignment with the will of God for your life. Jesus wants to set you free from household witchcraft so that you can experience your best life ever! (1 John 3:8)

Practicing any level of witchcraft is sin and will bring separation or death between you and God.  Witchcraft seeks to manipulate your mind and targets your intentions, your will, your intellect and your emotions.  In other words, the intention is to take over, manipulate or control you by taking possession of your soul.

Some people create their own witchcraft covenants with the realm of darkness by saying what they will never do.   Saying words such as, “I will never trust you again.” Or “I will never forgive you for what you have done!” Or “I hate you and I always will.”   When we speak such condemning words with resolute passion we are actually cursing a situation or a marital relationship and opening demonic doors.   

As the law of attraction is an established law in the realm of the spirit, witchcraft attracts witchcraft. Therefore, there are many other ways you can attract a spirit of witchcraft to your life.  Some of which include:

  • When you harbor un-forgiveness, bitterness or resentment, you can unknowingly attract spirits of witchcraft to your life. When this happens, your soul becomes influenced or dominated by the kingdom of darkness to carry out its ill wishes and demonic assignments.
  • When you become rebellious against God, you become angry, hateful, full of malice, envy, jealousy,  hatred and rage that you want harm someone; in so doing, you can also open the door to the spirit of witchcraft.
  • When you seek out or consult with someone to bring harm to another person both of you have made a contract with the kingdom of darkness.

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness
is as iniquity and idolatry. (1 Samuel 15:23)

Witchcraft in any form is a sin and the Word of God reveals that the soul that sins shall die.  (Ezekiel 18:20) This death here represents a spiritual death; a dying to the true life that God has for you; a death to joy, peace and love replaced with a life of misery, fear and torment.  This is why the practice of witchcraft is an abomination to God.  Revelation 21:8 speaks of the final judgment to those who practice witchcraft if they do not repent.

If this sin is present in your generation or even in your generational lineage, repent of it right now and the sins  of your ancestors.   In 1 John 1:9, we are assured that if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us of every sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness; once we are cleansed this gives us the peace love and joy to live an abundant, victorious life free from the traps of the enemy.  (John 10:10)

But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. (2 Corinthians 4:2)

 The word occult means hidden, covered, concealed or secret.  The secrets of the occults are known to those who are the leaders or organizers of the occult.

This simply means that they know exactly why they formed it.   Unfortunately, most people who end up in the occult just go along with its practices and beliefs but do not know the truth behind its foundations.

The practice of witchcraft can also be categorized as occult involvement.   Many people use witchcraft, psychical, metaphysical, and occult powers, whether directly or indirectly, for the purpose to control, dominate intimidate or influence the life of someone else, to their detriment.

 Witchcraft is outright rebellion against God and His word.  It uses evil powers from the kingdom of darkness to carry out its intentions.  Spells, curses, evil incantations, hexcrafts, jinxcrafts, soothsaying, fortune-telling, palm reading, tea leaf reading and the like are all forms of witchcraft.

 Deuteronomy 18:10-12
10 There shall not be found among you any one 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.  11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  12 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.

 According to Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Revelation 21:8, witchcraft or occult practices are an abomination to God and all who engage in such practices will be judged by Him.  Many people do not realize that consulting with witches, psychics, palm readers and the like, causes a demonic curse to come to their lives.   Not only are the witches cursed, but those who seek their counsel are also cursed.

This curse is carried out by a demonic spirit assigned to the individual’s life as soon as they depart from the presence of the witch.  They may have left the home or dwelling place of the witch but they have now attracted a demonic spirit which is assigned to wreak havoc in their lives. It is not God’s will that we seek from the demonic realm of darkness what He is willing to release to us from His Heavenly, Divine Kingdom.   Serving the devil and his kingdom will bring curses on your life.  Serving God and His Heavenly Kingdom will bring blessings and prosperity to you.  (John 10:10)

 If you have practiced witchcraft or have consulted with someone who practices witchcraft, pray and ask God to forgive you and to have mercy on you.  In His word He reveals that it is not His will that any should perish but that all should repent, turn from these wicked practices and come into the saving knowledge of Jesus, the Christ.

 2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.


Father, in the name of Jesus, the Christ I repent for every wrong thing that I have done.  I ask that you forgive me and cleanse me from every sin of witchcraft.   I renounce any ties to the occult or to any such wicked practices and ask that you would set me free, in Jesus name!  I decree and declare that from this day forward that Jesus, you are Lord and Savior of my life!

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall
by any means hurt you. (Luke 10:19)

It is important for you to understand how to identify when a curse is present in your life.  The only goal of a curse is to cause you hardship, pain, misfortune, gross disappointment and even death.  A curse is either rendered over your life by someone else or you may have knowingly or unknowingly attracted a curse to your life by your actions, words or deeds or they may have simply come through your generational lineage when you were born.

No matter how the curse comes, the enemy assigns demonic monitoring spirits to you in order to ensure that the curse is enacted in your life and leads to your ultimate demise.   Jesus died so that you can have power, through the shedding of His blood, to overcome every demonic curse.

Some of the ways you can identify when a curse is in your life or the lives of others are as follows:

  • when you are faced with something that is abnormal or unnatural that causes you distress, hardship or pain.
  • when you find yourself constantly rejected, abused and mistreated by others.
  • when you are “accident prone” or repeatedly having accidents
  • when you are faced with continual financial hardship and struggles
  • when you are in perpetual cycles of poverty and lack
  • when you constantly experience relational and/ or marital problems
  • when you are plagued by unexplainable illnesses and sicknesses which, in some cases, cannot be medically proven or remedied (For example: hypertension, diabetes, sickle-celled anemia, heart disease, cancer, and many others)
  • when you may notice negative, destructive or demonic attributes in members of your family or generational line
  • when you discover negative events, occurrences or dilemmas which repeat at specific times or seasons in your life
  • when you have difficulty sleeping and are having demonic dreams or nightmares

Jesus wants you to be the curse breaker in your family.    Once you identify a curse in your life, immediately begin to go to battle against it, through prayer.  Command every demonic spirit to go and then break every curse, in Jesus name!

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)

The only goal of a curse in your life is to cause you hardship, pain, misfortune, gross disappointment and even death.  A curse is either rendered over your life and enters or you may have knowingly or unknowingly attracted a curse to your life by your actions, words or deeds or they simply came through your generational lineage when you were born.

What many people do not know is that the enemy has demonic monitoring spirits that watch your life.  These spirits gather information concerning you and seek occasion to enter your life.  Every curse has a demonic spirit attached to it.  The assignment of these spirits is to ensure that the curse is enacted in your life and leads to your ultimate demise.

1 Peter 5:8 

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

In 1 Peter 5:8, the word of God exposes the fact that the enemy goes about in the earth seeking how he can destroy the people of God.  He seeks opportunity to enter your life and assign his demonic spirits to torment you; either with unexplainable sickness, demonic cycles of financial hardships, separation in your relationships, spirits of fear, anxiety, terror and more. No  matter how the curse has come, Jesus came to destroy its ultimate purpose in your life.

Jesus came to the earth to fulfill one assignment and that was to set mankind free from a ruthless enemy, the devil, and redeem him back to God.   When Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice and shed every drop of blood in His body, the plan of salvation and deliverance was activated for all who acknowledged, believed and confessed Jesus as their Savior and Deliverer.  His sacrifice on the Cross and ultimate resurrection, gave Him the control of all power in heaven and earth.  (Matthew 28:18)

After His sacrifice on the Cross, Jesus He went to hell and took the keys or, better, the power of death, hell and the grave so that He had all power in the earth realm to command every devil out of your life, to destroy the demonic curse that they were activating to keep you in bondage and to shut the gates of hell working against your life in order to set you free.  (Revelation 1:18)  You are totally delivered and set free by the power of the blood of Jesus; and whom the Son sets free, is free indeed!  (John 8:36)

“…and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn…” – Isaiah 54:17b

There are many reasons that curses exist in people’s lives.   Many times, the practices, activities or behaviors in which we engage can bring demonic cures.  In other regards, a curse can be projected by witches, wicked people who are hateful or jealous towards you and even the devil, himself.  Regardless of how curses come, it is not the will of God that you live under any curse.  Curses are spiritually illegal. Jesus sacrifice on the Cross and the shedding of His blood gives you legal right to be free from every curse of the enemy.

The enemy has no right to enact any curse over your life.  The only power he has is what you give him; either by agreeing with his demonic lies or by simply not doing anything to counter his attack.  Whether you choose to resist him or not, the enemy will continue to fight you, as a believer, with diabolical tactics designed to bring hardship, distress, trauma or tragedy.  These destructive curses are weapons that he forms against your life in an effort to cause your ultimate demise.   (John 10:10)

In Isaiah 54:17, the Word of God reveals that although the weapons of the enemy may form, they will not prosper and every tongue that rises against you, you have power to condemn.  Jesus said that the power of life and death is in your tongue.  (Proverbs 18:21)  You have the power to reverse the curse of every ill wish or wicked decree uttered against your life by making prophetic declarations of your own.

If you are sick, declare that you are healed (Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24); if you are last decree and declare that the last shall be first (Matthew 20:16); if you are poor or weak declare that you are rich and strong (Joel 3:10), in Jesus mighty name!   Wherever, there is a curse in your life, with spiritual authority and boldness, curse the curse by declaring the word of God against it. The spirit of God inside of you, gives you the unction and the power to speak those things that be not as though they were already. (Romans 4:17) You have the God-given right and ability to rebuke, stop, cancel, prophetically reverse or curse every curse…the power is in your mouth!

How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the Lord hath not defied?  (Numbers 11:8)

A curse causeless cannot come! (Psalm 26:2) 

A curse is the opposite of a blessing (good fortune, success or well-being.)  It is a prayer or an appeal for evil against your life, family, business or ministry.  Just as God uses prophets to speak words of blessings, the enemy can also use evil or wicked people, “false prophets”, witches or other ungodly men operating in spirits of hatred, jealousy, envy and greed to speak demonic curses over your life.  Every spoken word  with direct force carries a degree of power, be it negative or positive; someone’s words can either cause you pain or bring you joy. (Proverbs 18:21)

A curse may enter your life through your generational bloodline or by way of witches or wicked, evil people who wish to see your life destroyed.  A curse may even enter your life because of your own involvement in occult practices, engaging in willful sin or by the enemy, himself, working against your life.

However, the curse comes, the ultimate intent is your destruction.  Therefore a curse, acts like a weapon in your life. In Isaiah 54:17, under God’s divine providence, He promises that no weapon formed against you shall be able to prosper.  This means that you may be able to identify a curse at work in your life, your family or business but that curse will not be able to fulfill the ultimate purpose for which it has come.  Just as a lawyer fights and defends on your behalf, so does the legal blood of Jesus fight for you, against every curse that seeks to operate in your life.

7 And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.

8 How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the Lord hath not defied?  (Numbers 11:7, 8)

In Numbers 11:7, 8, we see the Prophet Balam is approached by King Balak asking him to curse the Children of Israel.  Even the Prophet who has the spiritual authority to declare the Word and Counsel of the Lord cannot render a curse upon the life of the people of God, once God has pronounced a command to bless them.  The more the Prophet attempted to curse them the more he spoke a blessing over them.  Why?  Because God had already blessed them.

As you look in your life, you may be able to identify demonic cycles, sudden dilemmas or unexplainable hardships or difficulties. As a believer, these ungodly curses do not have legal spiritual right to operate in your life.  Once you identify a curse at work in your life, you can begin to break it by taking spiritual authority and engaging in radical, fervent prayer against it.  God has already blessed you so no curse can destroy you and there is nothing that your enemies can do about it!

Everyday people wake up to the harsh reality that something is not right in their life. Their demonic patterns of repeated failure cannot be explained and trying to figure it out only leads to more frustration.

Unfortunately, many are unaware of what is fighting them and understanding how to gain victory over it is even more perplexing.

One thing they do know for sure, and that is with out a doubt, is that something happened to them during the course of their life, but what, they do not know.

During a healing and deliverance service several years ago, my husband and I were delivering people for almost three (3) days straight with little to know sleep. After nights of casting out thousands and thousands of demons, the Spirit of God simply told us to tell the people that their battle was coming from the kingdom of darkness and that demonic spirits had been sent to hinder them. This type of warfare is what I now call, Second Heaven Warfare.

You see, most people think that their fight is coming from another human being, but what they fail to see is the evil demonic force behind the human that is instigating the entire spiritual battle.

Some people spend most of their lives fighting another person instead of recognizing the real culprit at work.

Satan has done a good job in masking his kingdom to trick, especially Christians, into fighting each other more than recognizing who the real enemy is.

To better understand this let me explain the spiritual dynamics of heavenly realms.

I believe that there are many dimensions in the spirit realm. However, today I would like to reveal to you what I understand about the 3 basic dimensions in the heavenly invisible realm and show you how they affect your everyday life.

The first dimension is the atmospheric realm which is where we live and may consist of the atmosphere around the earth including the clouds etc. God gave man dominion in this realm. The second dimension is what we call the Starry Heaven and that consists of the constellation of stars, planets, etc. It is believed that this is the domain where Satan has set his seat of ruler shop as he was kicked out of Heaven by Michael and His Angels in Revelation 12.

The third Heaven is The Heaven of Heavens and is where the Kingdom of Almighty God is. It is where He dwells and it is where His Throne exists. It cannot be accessed by human flesh and it is the total dominion and Sanctuary of Almighty God.

Satan, from the seat of his domain has set his principalities over regions and territories to control them. He emits his wicked powers from the second heaven seeking to manipulate the prayers and livelihood of God’s people. This is similar to Daniel chapter 10 as we see the prince Of Persia blocked and tried to stop the angel of God from delivering the answer to Daniel for almost twenty-one days.

These demonic princes of darkness are fierce in nature and will stop at nothing to fight you as a Christian from gaining the ultimate victory that God has set in place for your life.

There diabolical goal is to block, stop and frustrate you right out of the Divine will and purpose of God if you allow them.

Your success and ultimate victory in this battle will only be won through persistent and consistent prayer before the Lord. God will send His angel, Michael to defeat every demonic principality, no matter how they try to sabotage your divine destiny.
