Does it really work. Can witches really cast spells on people or put curses on them or is that just a myth.

Its no myth! Very real stuff, used from the kingdom of darkness. We can make a choice to conjure up demons and also to speak death over someone. The opposite a blessing is just another word for a curse.

Don't believe this stuff, Tigger.  There are NO witches or, indeed, any human who can perform magic or cast spells.  There ARE demons who can cause you to believe you see such things but they are to be rebuked in the name of Jesus.  Others, such as mediums, are of the occult and under demonic influence.  I advise you navigate a wide path around such things.

Tell me what you think tigger? What does the bible have to say about it?

Witches can't do that stuff, but they are servants of the devil and his demons and those demons operate through witches.

Yes, that stuff is real and done through demons.  However, nothing the can throw can overcome the blood of Jesus.

Yes witches are real but may not exactly be what you might think they are.

Best understood by comment of anti-Christ:
2 Thess 2:9-12
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not
the love of the truth
, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong
delusion
, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the
truth
, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
KJV

Clearly the depiction here is all based on deception of reality being what is false! God
has no part with satan or his horde. Thus The Witness of Christ in His distinction of
power is true power in miracles the devils could not even deny:

Luke 11:14-15
14 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb.
And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out,
the dumb spake; and the people wondered. 15 But some
of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub
the chief of the devils.
KJV

So the lie was fabricated that the devil had this power and that was what the devil was using!

However in the testimony of Jesus to His own disciple Philip-
John 14:11
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father
in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
KJV

And even reiterated to others!
John 10:36-38
36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest;
because I said, I am the Son of God? 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe,
that the Father is in me, and I in him.
KJV

Clearly The Lord makes a distinction with true miracles and false miracles!
satan's whole goal is to place his person above that of God... God has denied
him any place in truth... Love, Steven

The devil can "bewitch" believers "only" if we believe the lies and deceptions of the devil.  The devil has no power of his own that is not under the authority of God.  Satan is a deciever and the father of lies.  All who serve in the army of the devil are also deceivers and liers and the truth is not in them.  But Satan can deceive and trick people into believing his lies through his craftiness, his subtility, his sleight of hand or illusions.

spells only work on those who believe in them . . .and if you are in Christ, what reason would you have to believe in them?

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

In all my travels I have seen and heard things and have also witness a lot also. I am someone that only believe what I have seen and witness and yes there are spells, jinx, curses and so on and witches uses all that to rake havoc on people's live. Eph 6:12 gives us a peep in to it. God is so great and powerful and he fights for us when we call upon him but I will suggest that you stay far away from witches or wizard and always do good to everyone because you don't know who is a witche or a wizard and they are so fond of looking for trouble because they can't hurt you if you don't look for their trouble. The universe has a code that they all follow.

Made the mistake of going to a "Psychic Fair" with a friend once. I had no idea what went on at one of those things at the time but the folks there instantly knew we were believers. It was pretty creepy, and a couple of folks yelled at us about "screwing up their magic." :laugh:

Blessings tigger......

      Everytime I see one of these threads I am just amazed by some of the responses i read & how little Christians really know about the adversary....which is really a good thing but what is most important and what every Christian should know is what God tells us.......STAY AWAY,we should not even speak about the things they do in darkness,stay armed,resist the devil,take captive every thought,be sober,be vigilant

     My past is a faded memory but more of a nightmare that by the Grace of God alone ,I lived through it.......who better to tell you ....DO NOT EVEN BE CURIOUS about what they can & cannot do but from me,your Sister in Christ who once was a practicing witch........are spells & curses real?Yes they are tigger but they have nothing to do with you or your life....you are a child of the Light,Gods own & they are children of the dark,satans own.As far as the east is from the west is as far as a Christian should be from a witch!

 

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8

   You see this verse of Holy Scripture,Gods Word.......take note that the devil seeks whom he MAY devour,whom he can,meaning who he is ABLE to......is he able to devour a Christian?Absolutely........IF one walks around without the full armor of God on,that is mistakenly under the impression that they are not susceptible to getting hit by one of those fiery darts without the powerful Arm of the Lord ........even our rebuke in Jesus Name is nothing but words without Christ Authority & the Power of the Holy Spirit

    I have met so many baby Christians who have encountered spiritual attacks & have gotten some really bad advice about spiritual warfare from mature Christians who do not understand that they did as much harm to these babes as if they sent a child into a battlefield of soldiers using machine guns & bombs armed only with a sling shot.......it is not a realm where any Christian who does not stand firmly on our Position of Victory in Christ,covered by His Blood should ever tread...................This is defeated enemy but no human is any match without the Sword of the Spirit

    All I really want to stress emphatically is focus on God,walk in Spirit & in Truth and give no attention to anything that is not of God.......the Lord will fight every battle and attack (curse spell) & no weapon formed against you shall prosper when you simply live Holy & in relationship with the Lord,pray without ceasing

                                                                                                                                                 With love -in Christ,Kwik

Living where I do, and doing what I do, I come across "sangoma's" on almost a daily basis. There are sangoma's who work for the good, and those that work for the bad. Both are unbiblical and demon driven (claiming to talk to the dead). I have seen the result of curses upon people, and some have died.

 

I have stood face to face with a ranting sangoma in Mozambique (some use human body parts, children are most preferred, there is a brisk trade, check out the internet and you will see), while he shook a dried bladder (with bones inside) in my face and cursed me for destroying his business (they charge up to $60 to $1000 for a spell) because we had started a bible study in the Musi (homestead) next door. We stood and countered him with scripture. He was a big man, bare chested, dressed in animal skins, with animal skin bracelets, a headdress from a leopard, and a belt of inflated bladders from the Lord only knows where....

 

Do theses spells and curses work? The dark one's do, but only if you are in the culture, and believe they can. Some Mozambique Christians won't go anywhere near then, and won't talk about them. They probably, having seen them at work, still believe in the danger. 

 

The sangoma attends the same bible study today, and when the Holy Spirit descended on him (I was not there), I was told it was like a darkness had left him, and the surrounding area. He lay on the ground and sobbed, and was broken.... He is now a strong man of God.

 

Now enough airtime for satan.

 

Let's get back to what really counts "Jesus and His Love for us!"

Looks like some work ahead strengthening them...
Matt 10:28
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but
rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
KJV
Mark 16:15
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
KJV

If they were to see this lack of fear where once was fear-> these witch doctors would have a good
witness of to Whom really has power and is to be feared... How about the witch doctor that was
converted is He afraid of them? Inquiring minds and all that :) Love, Steven
