The power of Satan’s demons will be focused against President Trump on Halloween night in an effort to prevent his return to the Oval Office.
Counting on extra juice from two full moons in the month of October, over 6,000 witches
Now while many Americans laugh at the concept that there are any such things as real witches, or that occult practitioners have any power, the Scriptures indicate otherwise. Balaam, for example, was an ancient sorcerer whose curses were powerful enough that God intervened before he could curse an entire nation (Numbers 22-24).
“Sorcery” is listed as a work of the flesh in Galatians 5:20. Sorcery involved the use of drugs (the Greek word is pharmakeia) to work dark magic, including spells and curses. We may never know exactly what practices were included in witchcraft, but they were clearly dangerous enough that witchcraft is forbidden in both Testaments. God flatly declares in one Old Testament passage, “You shall not permit a sorceress to live” (Exodus 22:18). Sorcery could do enough damage that under the Old Covenant it was a capital crime.
Peter tangled directly with a man called Simon the Magician, who so impressed the people of Samaria they said, “This man is the power of God that is called Great” (Acts 8:10).
So while some will laugh and think witchcraft is just so much harmless superstition, students of Scripture will not. Curses authorize demonic spirits to carry out dark purposes against their targets, just as our prayers, the prayers of the saints, invite the Spirit of God to direct his favor and protection to the objects of our intercession.
It is revealing that occultists have targeted the president rather than his opponent. Maybe they know something that other Americans don’t: President Trump poses a serious enough threat to the agenda of the kingdom of darkness that efforts must be made to restrict him, to hamper him, and to defeat him.
But, as the Bible says, “he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Paul tells us that our warfare is not against flesh and blood but against the principalities and powers of the unseen world (Ephesians 6:10-13). Further, we’re told that the weapons of our warfare are “divinely powerful” for the pulling down of the strongholds of the enemy (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
The presidential campaign is now a matter of open spiritual warfare. It's time for followers of Jesus to pray against the curses directed against the president and take our stand in the unseen world against the powers of darkness. The election is now a battle between the power of Satan and the power of Christ.
It is time for Christians to armor up in the Spirit, and use the armor God has given us to stop the prince of darkness from interfering in this election. If we, as the body of Christ, invoke the name of Christ against the principalities and powers of darkness, these curses can be shattered and left powerless.
I invite you to pray this prayer along with me and send it to other followers of Christ who know what is at stake in this election: the sanctity of life, religious liberty, judges who follow the Constitution, and economic freedom.
“In the name of Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, we come against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly realms and break the power of every curse that has been directed against President Trump. Satan, we rebuke you in the name of Christ, and declare that your purposes against this man will not stand.
We transfer the curses that have been sent against him to the cross, and declare that you, Lord Christ, became a curse for the president when you hung on the tree. Through the cross of Christ and his shed blood, we now nullify and invalidate every curse and rob them of their power.
Everywhere that Satan has intended a curse, we together release a blessing in the name of Jesus, the blessing of divine protection and favor. Heavenly Father, may your will and your will alone be done. Amen.”
