My question is related to the persons who are busy with occult practices, witchcrafts, curses. I have a very close relative of my family who does this for several years, I think she does this of envy and greed, and my family has found out from several sources that many of these evils are meant for us (to prevent marriage to me, parents to have problems at work) and I do not want to sin saying that I believe in them, but I simply observed that, for some time, things do not go as usually and that frightens me. None in my family would go to other wizard who “unties” the curse, because we know that it is a great sin, so I want to know how to fight exactly, besides praying and fasting. What else should I do, also how much time can this evil last, (years, months, days)? Knowing that this situation lasts for about 3-4 years, sometimes I get desperate. If my parents are not Christian and I am, how can I stop the evil that comes to my family?
The evil power of the wizards is a reality
No matter if people believe, or if they don’t, it is a reality that wizards work with the power of Satan and can do much harm. That is why God says in the Bible as follows:
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. (Deuterоnomy 18:10-13)(NASB)
There where people go away from God, these awful sins increase, and we must admit that we have wizards in our country, which harm a lot of people. In my childhood I have seen many lives and families destroyed by witchcrafts and not only once I saw how in our yard came a frog with a red thread tied to its legs, or hair or horns of animals thrown by the yard, or other objects. In the article where I tell about my mother’s death I reported more about how our family was attacked by those who were doing Satan’s will. So I do not need someone to convince me about the power of wizards and of their evil practices.
Spells and curses do not have power over the children of God
When the people of Israel were on their way to Canaan, and reached the borders of Moab, Balak, the king of Moab sent his request to call the wizard Balaam, that he might curse the children of Israel and cast spells against them. Incidentally, it is known that Hitler and the Nazis resorted to such wizards in triggering the diabolical plans that they had. God told Balaam not to go with the messengers and he didn’t go the first time, but then, being asked again and being promised wealth, Balaam insisted and God let him go, to his shame and misfortune. Arrived in Moab, he tried to curse Israel three times, but three times God made him to bless them. All details are written in chapters 22-24 of the book of Numbers. At the first attempt to curse Israel, Balaam said:
How shall I curse whom God has not cursed? And how can I denounce whom the LORD has not denounced? (Numbers 23:8)(NASB)
On the second attempt to curse, God put these words in Balaam mouth:
For there is no omen against Jacob, nor is there any divination against Israel; at the proper time it shall be said to Jacob and to Israel, what God has done! (Numbers 23:23)(NASB)
Anyone who has entered a covenant with God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and new birth became the child of God, as written in the Gospel of John:
He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. (Gospel of John 1:11-13)(NASB)
Because we are children of God, we are blessed by God. He does not curse us and does not allow anyone to curse us. Maybe your “wedding has been tied up”, i.e someone cast spells that you can not marry. You should know that those spells could have effect on you until the moment when you entered the covenant with the Lord Jesus. Now, they have no power because you are blessed by God. And if you have not married yet, this is for your own good, as God says:
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)(NASB)
How long does the harm caused by wizards last?
Much. The Scripture says that it lasts until comes the freedom that only God can give. When people possessed by evil spirits were brought to the Lord Jesus, those evil spirits or devils, never wanted to leave the man and only the commandment of Jesus made them to leave that person alone. So it is with curses, that are devilish deeds involving the devil’s power. They last until the man comes to seek release from the Lord Jesus, and only the Savior can give a full release.
How to help those who are under the curses of wizards?
When Apostle Paul told the king Agrippa about the meeting he had with the Lord Jesus and how he returned to God, he said that Lord Jesus said this:
“Rescuing you from the Jewish people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.” (Acts 26:17-18)(NASB)
Everyone who is under the curses of wizards are also under the power of Satan. To get free of this power, one must first open the eyes of his mind and heart and seek to know and understand the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as written on the pages of Holy Scriptures. Then, once he understands how he can get free, he must make a choice to turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God. So, he will receive, by faith in the Lord Jesus, the forgiveness of sins and inheritance with those who are sanctified. This is repentance. This happens when a person is born again. There is no other alternative or another way for people to get rid of the curses they are under. Those who go to other wizard, which promise to release the curse, they simply aggravate the condition and go from bad to worse. We can talk to relatives and urge them to receive the message of the Gospel, but the choice is theirs.
Several years ago I found out about a relative who was casting all sorts of spells. As soon as I found out I went to face her with the truth of the Holy Scriptures. And what do you think? She told me that she did nothing wrong, that she could take care of her family in that way, etc. I warned her and I told her that there were serious consequences for her and for the whole family. I do not want to give details on the consequences they had, but they are very, very serious and all have became very wretch. And I told them about returning to the Lord Jesus Christ with all their heart and they ignored it. Actually, it is not late now, only if they wanted to understand and turn from dark to light and from the power of Satan to God.
What will you do? If you are under the curse of the wizards, run to the Lord Jesus, make a covenant with Him, give Him your whole life and the Savior will set you free and will fill you with peace, joy and happiness that only He can give. Tell your relatives who are under these curses not to remain in darkness, but to turn to the Lord Jesus, who is Light the world.
