Prayers against Black Magic and Witchcraft

Prayers against Black Magic and Witchcraft Via Sister Bella ❤️

When you read the first prayer you accept Jesus and receive the covering of God’s blessings on and in your life…

“All praise our God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the Heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.” ~Ephesians 1:3

Pray this first to recieve your authority under Christ Jesus:

Thank you wonderful Father God for bringing me to this revelation that I need to pray this prayer over my life. My Lord Jesus I surrender my life to you and all my worries. I repent of my sins and declare you Son of the living God and Saviour over my life. Please guide and protect me and my loved ones friends and family with your blood in all we do. Holy Spirit fill me, guide me and bless me and my loved ones and all future generations until judgment day in Jesus name. Amen

In Jesus name, I cover myself, my loved ones and anyone in the World that needs it with the Blood of Jesus. I ask for giant warrior Angels to protect us and my loved ones. With your war clubs and weapons of war, I break down, undam and blow up all walls of protection around all witches, black magic practitioners, Satanists, sorcerers, and the like covering them with the blood of Jesus. I break the power of all curses, hexes, vexes, spells, obeah, charms, fetishes, psychic prayers, psychic thoughts, all witchcraft, sorcery, magic, voodoo, all mind control, jinxes, potions, bewitchments, death destruction, sickness, pain, torment, psychic power, psychic warfare, prayer chains, incense and candle burning, incantations, chanting, blessings, hoodoo, crystals, root works, using our pictures, name or belongings, things in food or drink, dreams whether willing or otherwise and everything being sent my way or my loved ones way, or any deliverance ministries way. I rebuke you and bind you cover all named and unnamed demonic forces permanently with the blood of Jesus. I return all the evil directed towards me and my loved ones with every demon to the sender and bind it to them with the blood of Jesus and every spiritual enemy and cast them permanently into the lake of fire in Jesus name. We cover our physical enemies with the blood of Jesus too so they can never harm another soul. We cut and burn their ungodly silver cords and lay lines, connections and any demonic markings on our mind, body, spirit and soul, closing permanently EVERY doorway satan has opened in our lives covered in the blood of Jesus. We call for recompense Father God and for you to judge whether to take vengeance against our enemies in Jesus name. Every curse and wicked thought against our lives will manifest in immediate abundant blessings for us and all our loved ones and no curse shall ever touch us, our lives, family and friends and all future generations whether they are willing or not in Jesus name.

Every curse and generational curse by my ancestors or any demonic source going back to Adam and Eve on both sides of my family going forward until judgment day you are bound and broken and every legal holding on my life is destroyed, in the name of Jesus, I cover myself and loved ones with the cleansing blood of Jesus. I am free, blessed, anointed, and appointed and all my body, weight, mind, life, health, skin, hair, relationships, family is in exact accordance with God’s word. God is shining favour in every aspect of my life and career, family, relationship, finances and protection. In Jesus name. Amen

Psalm 3:5-6

5. I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. 6. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side.

2 Timothy 1: 7

7.For God did not us not a spirit of fear and but of power and love and of a sound mind.

Genesis 12:2-3

2. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. 3. I will bless those that bless you, and I will curse those that curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

Psalm 138:7 7. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.

Philippians 1:28

Don’t be intimidated or fearful or show fear to your enemies. (Your strength) Will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed, but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself.

Luke 1:74-75

74. We have been rescued from our enemies so we can serve God without fear, 75. In holiness and righteousness for as long as we live.

Psalm 91:9-16

9. Because you have made the Lord my refuge, the Most High, your place of residence- 10. No evil will happen to you; no disease will come to your home. 11. Because he will order his messengers to help you, to protect you wherever you go. 12. They will carry you with their own hands so you don’t bruise your foot on a stone. 13. You’ll march on top of lions and vipers; you will trample young lions and serpents underfoot. 14. God says, because you are devoted to me, I will rescue you. I will protect you because you know my name. 15. When ever you cry out to Me, I will answer. I will be with you in troubling times. I will save you and glorify you. 16. I will fill you full with old age. I will show you my salvation.

Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people; for they ARE Blessed.” ~Numbers 22:12

A little harder is to pray for those who have cursed you or tried to harm you and your loved ones.

“Ask God to bless anyone who curses you and pray for anyone who was cruel to you”~ Luke 6:28

By doing what God wants to do you increase your own blessings and can begin the process of forgiveness and healing. It may not be what you want to do right now especially for someone intent on causing you harm and misery but God will take vengeance against our enemies… Pray for God to remove the hurt, fear, bitterness from the situation from you and to replace it with peace and comfort from the Holy Spirit.

“Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay says the Lord.”~Romans 12:19

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale ❤️

Boston sang “Don’t look back” on WLS in Chicago late in the summer of 1978. (I was glued to my AM radio back then) WLS was about all I listened too. How can you beat Larry Lujack? Long before Boston sang “Don’t look back” there was the Apostle Paul was telling Believers, in so many words, ”Don’t look back!” Paul writes in his letter to the Philippians, ”Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the upward call of YeHoVaH/God in Yeshua/Jesus.” His word to us is, ”Don’t look back!” Like the Apostle Paul we must forget ”what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead.” There is a natural, human tendency for us to look back. And there can be great value in looking back. We look back to learn. We look back to affirm the places and faces and circumstances from whence we have come. Facebook friends, ”It’s mainly for some clue to where I am going that I search through where I’ve been, for some hint as to whom I am becoming or failing to become that I delve into what used to be.” So there is, indeed, a time for us to look back, if that looking back carries with it a positive purpose. At the same time Paul tells us to ”forget what lies behind.” But Paul is saying don’t look back in a way that will keep us from going forward. Don’t look back in a way that makes us prisoners of our past, because looking back in the wrong way enslaves us or enslaves others to past mistakes and sins. Looking back in the wrong way does not allow the healing of old hurts and painful memories. Even looking back at past accomplishments and successes can keep us from discovering what lies ahead. So the advice that’s given to us is, ”Don’t look back!” Imagine how miserable the Apostle Paul would have been if he had not put behind the sins and mistakes of his past. Think back on Paul’s earlier years.

Before his conversion Paul was named Saul, and he was the number one enemy of the church. He was responsible for the gruesome persecution and even the murder of people who professed faith in Yeshua/Jesus. When Stephen, the great witness for Yeshua/Jesus, was stoned to death, Luke tells us that ”Saul was consenting to his death.” In Acts, Luke goes on to say ”that a great persecution arose against the church” and ”Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.” Paul’s past was cluttered with atrocious acts of evil. And he wasn’t perfect after he became a Believer. He, like us, continually struggled with his sinfulness. Yet he was forgiven. Through the grace of YeHoVaH/God Paul was forgiven. He affirmed in his letter to the Colossians, ”He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Paul was able to forget the awfulness of his past because YeHoVaH/God had forgotten and forgiven Paul’s past. In Hebrews Yeshua/Jesus tells us that He will ”remember our sins and misdeeds no more.” There’s no reason for us to remain enslaved to the mistakes and sins and shortcomings of our past. We don’t have to continually feel guilty and ”second rate” because of something we did years ago or even yesterday. YeHoVaH/God in Yeshua/Jesus has forgiven us, and all we do is accept His forgiveness and say ”thank you.” It’s as simple as that. Don’t look back at past mistakes! Amen?

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale

🎶If I could hold your hand one more time

And hear your lullabies just like before

I know that I did wrong, so I’m singing you this song

Mother, I won’t see you anymore. Son, I wish you knew how much we’re missin’ you

I saw them cry their tears from up above

I try to tell them, but the words aren’t getting through

I didn’t mean to hurt the ones I love. Mother, father, I hope to see you soon

And things will be just like they were before

I’m sending all my love, I’m watching from above

And I’ll be in their hearts forever more🎶

When this song came out in 1991 by “The Scream” it really hit home. I lost my best friend at age 19. It’s been nearly 27 years since he passed. I often wonder what kind of family he would have had. I think about all the good things which life has to offer that he got cheated out of. There are many situations in life which can cause a person to feel overwhelmed to the point of wanting to commit suicide (the death of a loved one, being arrested and imprisoned, a spouse leaving, getting caught doing wrong, peer pressure, teenage pressures) In the Bible, in Judas’ case it was guilt, his evil was exposed and he was overwhelmed with guilt. Judas could have been forgiven, but he instead foolishly hung himself. There is always a right way and a wrong way to deal with anything. Just lay everything out on the table before YeHoVaH/God in prayer. He promises to forgive you and to help you get your life together. You don’t need to feel overwhelmed with sorrow and fear, just beg Him to forgive you and then you do everything in your power to make things right. If there’s nothing you can do about it or it is too late, then you must put the situation into His hands and free your mind of something you cannot change. Forget the past, it is gone forever. Don’t worry about the future, it may not be yours. Rather, lay up for yourself treasures for the new heaven and earth by living for Yeshua/Jesus and the gospel’s sake. You don’t have to kill yourself. You can have “a life” in Yeshua/Jesus (John 10:9-10). Some of you know I suffer in physical pain everyday from problems in my back, knees and wrists. Not a day has passed since 2004 that I don’t have aching constant toothache like pain. Facebook friends, I have never thought of killing myself. Suicide is not the best way to make the pain go away. Life is full of problems, emotions, miseries and frustrations. Life can be better friends, but the first step is to never give up on yourself! Trust me, time does heal ALL wounds. I know from experience. If you’re at the end of your rope, then get a longer rope. If you’ve received the straw that breaks the camel’s back, then get a stronger camel. Don’t quit! Don’t give up! You can make it! Suicide not an option. No one should ever even talk about something so foolish as killing one’s self. I hope these few words have encouraged someone today. I’m always willing to listen and pray for you.

Church, Personal Journey

Are You Watching?

Are you looking for Jesus? Or..are you caught up in the things of this world? Many are sleeping and not watching for The Master’s return. When Jesus catches His Bride away in the air, it will be like in the days of Noah and Lot. Life is carrying on as normal before The Tribulation. People are eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, buying & selling, planting and building. People are busy in their plans concerning this life on earth, forgetting that at any moment now the sky will part as the Trumpet of God sounds and the dead in Christ rise first. Do not be caught up in this world. It could occur any moment & the “left behind” multitude realizes that the Bride of Christ is gone with the Bridegroom.

Bride

The Book of Revelation is a literal book and nothing is clearer than the company of Tribulation saints in Revelation 7. No picture in the Book of Revelation is more graphic than this multitude of dying or dead saints, martyred for their faith in Jesus Christ. This vast number is clearly the multitudes that missed the Rapture but repented and became willing sacrifices for Christ.

The cost of discipleship today does not touch the cost of discipleship after the Rapture. The devil will have lost the prize of the “Bride of Christ” he had so determined to destroy. Being left behind, then in order to follow Christ and make it to Heaven, the only way will be dying for Him, as a martyr. The Mark of the Beast that enables people to buy or sell in their right hand or forehead is a guarantee for Hell once you take it. It’s easy to say you wouldn’t take the Mark of The Beast for Jesus in the Tribulation…but think about starving to death for instance. Read Revelation Chapter 13.

Matthew 25:6-10 King James Version

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Are you shining bright for Christ, or are you lukewarm? Are you living with one foot in the world and one with Jesus? This is so serious!

Mark 13:32-37 King James Version (KJV)

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Also,

Luke 21:34-36 King James Version

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

The Transplant

When I take a moment and pause to think about my life, I am overcome with joy and quiet laughter.  It’s because of the glory of God being revealed to me each day. His miracles are the sweetest things I’ve ever known. Every time with Jesus. He gives me butterflies.

Acts 2:25-28  King James Version (KJV)

25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

He knows we have little strength.

Revelation 3:8  King James Version (KJV)

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

But He takes care of us!

Matthew 11:28 – Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Isaiah 40:31 – But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Accepting the free gift of Salvation  (which comes through The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of God, and He alone) CHANGES everything! With The Holy Spirit inside of you, a new heart and a new perspective… The Bible, God’s Word, will come to life unlike before you were saved! In Jesus you will find purpose. In Christ there is a peace that surpasses understanding. You are never alone.

Heart surgery was what I needed.

Ezekiel 36:26-27  King James Version (KJV)

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, I encourage you to see Him now because the soul goes on. You were created by Almighty God and will exist forever either way. Jesus is the only way. I pray you will make Him your way today. God bless. ♥

Romans 10:9

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
He’s listening and waiting eagerly to hear from you.
Faith, Personal Journey

Time.

It hurts that it has to be this way. I am blessed with my eyes wide open to the truth of this world and just how things really are. My entire perception of reality has changed, and sometimes it can get to me and reality hurts. I have this brokenhearted feeling within me. Tears from the depths of my soul. If only people would listen. If only everyone would pause for a moment to take it all in and to see just how we take everything for granted.

Life is fragile and all is uncertain. Nobody knows when their last breath will be drawn or when they will see someone for the last time. When it really is goodbye. If we would all come to understand what it really means to show others that they matter and are really valued… If we could forgive as easy as the grudges that we hold are so quickly formed… People get offended. We hold onto bitterness which robs us of the precious time that we have on this earth as human beings. We take others for granted, living like they’ll always be there, when the truth is, nothing stays the same. We are not promised another day or breath. It hurts to think about how we just go through the motions day after day, when people need to know they are loved and they matter. They need to hear and also see how much we care for them.

Just let it all go. These dark, heavy feelings you have toward others are truly silly and childish when you step back and look at your life. Keeping harsh feelings and a negative outlook on life and other people (for whatever reason) is robbing you of this very short, precious life on earth. The devil comes to lie, kill, and destroy. He loves gossip and whispering lies into your mind, causing confusion to create strife in your mind and among others. Planting seeds of doubt, there is an assault on your faith! Satan gets great satisfaction from causing division and creating conflict between people. However The Lord Jesus Christ came and died for our Salvation, to give us peace and show us how to forgive.

Remember The Cross.

Why Do I Have So Many Issues?

By Lysa TerKeurst

issues

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 KJV

Have you ever looked at other people and thought to yourself, “How does everyone else have it all together? And why is it I seem to have so many issues?”

I understand. For most of my life, I’ve struggled with my weight and committing to a healthy lifestyle. My soul was rubbed raw from years of trying and failing.

I wanted something to instantly fix my issues.
I wanted to stop calling myself awful names I’d never let another person call me.
I wanted to be naturally thin like my sister.
I wanted to stop crying when I walked into my closet to get dressed in the morning.

So when I lost 25 pounds a few years ago and kept it off for the first time in my life, it was a huge victory.

But my real celebration hasn’t been over the smaller clothing size and reduced numbers on the scale. My real celebration is over the spiritual insights I gained while losing the weight and maintaining my healthy progress.

For me, this has been a spiritual journey — a significant spiritual journey with great physical benefits. I had been overweight physically and underweight spiritually and finally tying those two things together was life changing.

One of the richest lessons has been realizing the amount of mental and spiritual energy I wasted for years just wishing things would change. All the while, I was beating myself up for not having the discipline to make those changes.

If you have an issue with weight and food, you know what I mean. But no matter what issue you are currently dealing with, can I offer a bit of encouragement?

Jesus wants to help you with that issue. He really does. But you’ve got to stop beating yourself up about it and determine to follow His lead.

We like to identify our shortcomings, form them into a club, and beat the tar out of ourselves mentally. Over and over and over again. We label ourselves and soon lose our real identity to the beaten and bruised fragility we call “me.”

We compare, we assume, we assess, we measure and most times walk away shaking our head at how woefully short our “me” falls compared to everyone else. How dangerous it is to hold up the intimate knowledge of our imperfections against the outside packaging of others.

If there is one thing that living 40-plus years has taught me it’s this: All God’s girls have issues. Every single one of us.

But we can make the choice to identify our shortcomings and instead of using them against ourselves, hand them over to Jesus and let Him chisel our rough places.

The grace-filled way Jesus chisels is so vastly different than the way I mentally beat myself up.

My mental scripts are too often full of exaggerated lies that leave me feeling defeated. His chiseling is full of truth that sets me free.

Oh what a difference.

Jesus doesn’t compare.

Jesus doesn’t exaggerate.

Jesus doesn’t condemn. Our key verse, Romans 8:1, confirms this.

He simply says, “Hey, I love you. I love you just how you are. But, I love you too much to leave you stuck in this. So, let’s work on it together. You can do this.

There is something so powerful in really believing that with Jesus’ help you can do this. Say it with me, “I can.” I can is a powerful little twist for a girl feeling deprived and defeated.

I can helps me walk into the dinner party and find the conversation more appealing than the food table. I can helps me stay on the perimeter of the grocery store where the fresher, healthier selections abound and smile that I know this.

I can helps me look at the drive-thru menu and order a fruit tray without even giving a thought to the fried foods I used to snack on. I can reminds me to look online for a restaurant’s nutritional information before going out, ensuring wiser choices. I can reminds me no food will ever taste as sweet as victory does.

Having issues isn’t the absence of victory in our lives. It’s simply a call to action reminding us victory is right around the corner. Today is a great day to start believing you were made to walk in victory and to say to Jesus, “Yes, with Your truth as my guide, I can.”

Dear Lord, help me see myself the way You see me. Remove the lies that defeat me more often than I want to acknowledge. You have set me free. Help me live like I truly believe that. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
2 Corinthians 4:17, “ For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;” (KJV)
