Curses! Foiled Again!

John Collins11/10/2012 2:31:00 PMThere seem to be many from Africa who feel their "Christian duty" to curse us through either private messaging or on the public pages. Those of you who feel threatened by this need not fear; If we have faith in Jesus Christ, we have protection over all kinds of sorcery or evil.

Curses in the Bible are always described as evil. Deuteronomy 18:10-11 numbers those who cast spells with those who commit other acts "detestable to the LORD" such as witchcraft, sorcery, divination, or necromancy (consulting with the dead). Though William Branham claims to have spoken with the dead, his alleged power is limited in the eyes of God, and it was an evil abomination in God's eyes. This was following after the way of Balaam.

Micah 5:12 says that God will destroy witchcraft and those who cast spells. Revelation 18 describes spells as part of the deception that will be used by the antichrist and his "great city of Babylon". Though the end-times deception will be so great that even the elect would be deceived if God did not protect us (Matthew 24:24), God will utterly destroy Satan, the antichrist, and all who follow them (Revelation chapters 19-20).

We are in the constant presence of the Holy Spirit who lives within us and under whose protection we exist (Romans 8:11). There is nothing we must do to earn our salvation -- in fact we can't. For it is by grace (unmerited favor) you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God (Eph 2:8)

We do not need to worry about anyone casting any sort of pagan spell on us. Voodoo, witchcraft, hexes, and curses have no power over us because they come from Satan, and we know that "the one who is in you [Christ] is greater than the one [Satan] who is in the world" (1 John 4:4). God has overcome him, and we have been freed to worship God without fear (John 8:36). "The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? " (Psalm 27:1).

Seek the Truth! It's in the Bible!
