The confession of Evangelist Emmanuel Omoobajesu, was a heart pricking testimony, because he was once a very powerful member and High Court in the Devils Kingdom. Some of the things about him are: his cultist name that Satan gave him “Bag Of Wickedness.
The authorities stopped arresting him when he was in the Dark Kingdom because they could never keep him in prison — He would render himself invisible and escape. Once a squad of soldiers commanded by a major came to arrest him and Emmanuel told him, “I have killed more men than your eyes have ever even seen.”
They opened up on him with AK-47’s and he handed them the bullets! Emmanuel was saved by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who appeared to him and changed his name to Emmanuel Omoobajesu which means in Yoruba language (Nigeria), “Son Of King Jesus.”

THE SECRET AND ORIGIN OF WITCHCRAFT
“And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? Isaiah 8:19”
I shall be discussing about the secrets of witchcraft in Africa in this confession series. The preparations of all the various charms and medicines which people make for their powers in the dark world, involve seeking the dead in a sense.
Those who make the charms to seek for life, prosperity which the Yoruba language (Western tribes in Nigeria) call “awoore” Those who make those kind of charms, they make use of a dead rat in the process. Those who make the charm to seek for self-protection, which the Yoruba language calls “ma darekan”
They use the blood of a human being for the preparation. Those who make the charm are known as “agbelepata” which is interpreted as a kind of power that makes you invulnerable against the invincible attacks. Those who use that kind of charms, they use the back of shell of an already dead turtle.
All is practice act were done and many other things amount to seek the dead in a sense. Initially I visited about two graveyards to seek for these dark powers and thereby I met with several categories of evil spirits which I cannot begin to recount here one after another but there are some spirits who trouble people in their dreams while sleeping.
I know some of you here today might have been experiencing those kinds of attacks in your dreams and you begin to wonder what this is. There are spirits in forms of masquerades in your dreams. Spirits in form of snakes; in form of cows, in form of cats, in form of monkeys and so on and so forth will appear and will be chasing you about in your dreams.
Some of you have been bitten by snakes in your dreams and sometimes, maybe, in an attempt to defend yourselves from this type of happenings you begin to go to palm readers, or you make various charms; you take plenty of trouble going to the witches and warlocks, witch doctors, herbalists, native doctors to look for herbs in order to make charms for defense.
You sometimes will claim that you want to free yourself from the enemies but I want to tell you this: all charms and medicines, no matter how costly, no matter how they’ve been made cannot take a minute for a witch to destroy them. Haven’t you seen people being sick and they were terribly sickly, terribly ill and they go to the hospital and there’s nothing that the orthodox medicine can do for them, to heal them.
So, all charms cannot save. There is no charm or medicine that can deliver a person in the dreams
. Dead things cannot save you in the land of the unseen such as in the dreams. The power of medicine is very limited in the physical realm only but I thank God for the grace which the Christians have in the Lord Jesus Christ. For through the power of prayer and the Word of God, we have a sure defense.
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble
. I mean, this is thrilling, it’s amazing what the Word of God can mean to our souls and spirit and how it can bring victory. Check this line of sentence, Psalm 46:1" God is our refuse and strength. A very present help in trouble.
Hallelujah! Oh, glory to God!
A very present help in trouble. He’s our strength; He’s our refuge and that’s what the bible says and I believe that wholeheartedly. And it has worked for me and I’m sure it will work for you. Several times in my sleep, in my dreams, many a times when any such things appear like a goat, like a snake, like any of those witchcraft symbols- anytime they appear in my dreams, I found myself praying.
When any such things appear, sometimes I just begin to shout ‘in the name of Jesus‘ in the name of Jesus’ ‘in the name of Jesus’. And immediately I begin to do this, all those cows, all those masquerades or whatever they are, sometimes they fall, sometimes they burst into flame and they burn to ashes.
Now, concerning this evil spirits that constitute a terror in the dreams, they are witches for sure. They are the spirit of witchcraft. Whether you believe it or not, they are the spirit of witchcraft. Whenever you find yourself trying to rescue yourself from the midst of a storm in your dream and in the midst of a troubled water, such dream is telling you that the process of witchcraft will put some problems in your life.

So concerning these evil spirits that constitute a terror in your dreams which are witchcraft, I can say that the night hour between 11pm and 3am their operations always take place. They operate between 11pm and 3am.
The bible says in Exodus 22:18” Suffer not a witch to live.
The reason why the Holy Spirit declares this is because the people referred as witches, they considered themselves to be in the position of honor and they desired to be feared, to be respected, to be reverence and even so many people live in awe of them instead of God.
How does this happen, you will ask me? Let’s us consider what often happens sometimes in those third world. When an open air crusade was to take place some people will kick and question: what do you mean by crusade? What are they really doing there? No, you cannot hold any crusade in this place.
And they will use any form or method to prevent the crusade from taking place but upon hearing that a witch or a witch doctor is in a certain place, they will dare not say a word. This means that people fear the witches more than God, the creator. They fear that the witch can kill them and eat their flesh but they forgot that the mere wrath of God spells is death.
Some people fear witches to the point as evening is approaching they melt. When you mention the name ‘witch’,
they will say, “Don’t put me in trouble, please. Don’t let them come and trouble me and kill me at night.” Let me tell you something: your fear is only because you do not have Jesus Christ as your Savior.
READ ALSO: The Danger Of Fear In The Life Of Christians.
The bible says ‘do not fear ‘let not your heart be troubled’. John 14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
You can also compare it with Isaiah 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
And I want you to know the bible says fear has torment. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:18).
So, if you allow fear to grip your spirit, then you will discover faith will disappear from your spirit. But where faith rules supreme in your spirit then fear disappears, Hallelujah!
So if you fear witches and warlocks and palm readers, astrologers it means it’s the witches and all those stuffs that you fear and not God. And witches can perceive that you don’t fear God that’s why they cause you to shiver. The bible warns regard them….do not regard them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them. God said, “I am the Lord your God’. I’m quoting from Leviticus 19:31 "Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God"
And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go whoring after them I will even set my face against that soul and I will cut them off from among those people
. That was Leviticus 20:6
. So God said if you set your heart on these forces to lure after them, God promise to cut such a soul off from among His people.
THE ORIGIN OF WITCHCRAFT
Now, we want to deliberate and understand where are the witches? Where do they come from? Well, I don’t want you to misplace priorities. There something I want you to understand here: People often confuse the very person with the evil spirit he or she possess. People often suppose he or she is the very evil spirit. No, it’s not so.
When the person is possessed with the spirit of witchcraft, the fact is that the evil spirit has possessed that individual.
So the spirit of witchcraft is an evil spirit that possess the soul of human body. The spirit of witchcraft is one of the sinful angels that God drove out of heaven with Satan. After God had driven them out to the earth, they didn’t have any dwelling place, even though God sent them into the tatarus (into the deep darkness).
They don’t want to go there and by so doing, they become a wondering spirits. But they choose living in persons who will allow them. So whenever they possess a person, they’re determined to spoil the life, to destroy the life of such a person and get them destroyed entirely by the wrath of God. The spirit of witchcraft have become like rags as Yoruba people referred to them as "emeyalak esa".
The witches have three divisions. In Yoruba land they have three divisions. They are called:
- The argoodeh.
- The agodeh (argoodeh is different from agodeh).
- The argoodeh goodeh).
Try to note that (i) and (ii) are different in pronunciation. Argoodeh and agodeh. They are different in pronunciations according to the Yoruba accents on them. Argoodeh are the lesser witches, which the Yoruba call "ekpe lageh"
While agodeh are the wizards which the Yoruba call "o sho"
. Argoodeh goodeh are the greater witches which the Yoruba call "oshoronga".
And as they have these divisions so they have categories.
- They have the white witches.
- They have the black witches.
- They have the red witches but I don’t want to go into all of this, okay?
But I want you to understand that all the practice of witches are all evil. They can determine to snatch something out a person’s possession be it a clothe, a car, an amount of money etc. They know how they can force it out of the owner’s hand. But I thank God for one thing, they can snatch anything from anybody’s hand but not from a born-again and prayerful Christian.
The occultists and the oraclers, the witch doctors often put the story of the origin of the witches in this way: They claim that heavenly spirits such as witches, familiar spirits, that is "a jeh and e mere
" like in Yoruba language, death "eku"
, sickness "arun"
etc; whom the occultists will refer to as warriors, as it is known in Yoruba language as "aje kun"
The occultists and oraclers believe that these forces came in the same company from heaven. What the witch doctor believe and want people to understand is that when witches attack a person or when a witch attacks a person and that person visits a witch doctor then the witch doctor will prescribe for him to make a sacrifice.
The devil or satan will then, in turn, carry this sacrifice about in his hands, visiting these stubborn spirits "ajo kun" (
the warriors). Satan will be telling each of them as he meets them saying "woababaja eba to run ye"
That means: Look, you warriors, don’t fight this individual any more. This is the sacrifice that he made for you. Do not fight him; this is the sacrifice he made"
So this implies that the witch doctors present the devil as a type of a savior from the hand of this troublesome spirits. But this is total blasphemy and the very deceit of hell itself. The truth is this: when witches are in a certain place, they form a group. They will choose a witch doctor who will be acting for them. The witches, the wizards (emeres), the familiar spirits are the masters and they operate under the leadership of Satan.
Directly under the leadership of Beelzebub and Beelzebub under the leadership of Satan. And Satan is the father of all lies. To promote the operation of satan that is why they do it. The witches, wizards and familiar spirits and the rest of them will come together and choose a novice who knows nothing but is willing to be used of Satan.
They will give him an instrument of office such as palm kernels, fine white sand some kind of seeds which Yoruba call "okpleleh".
And they will be convening with him from time to time. They will start to trouble people and put problems in their lives spiritually and this will begin to manifest in the physical world. And this they do especially in the night time while the people are asleep.
And this is when you begin to dream that you are in the midst of a pool of water, you’re trying to struggle to get out of it you cannot get out it or somebody is pursuing you in your dream, trying to harm you or get rid of you or snake bites you or a cow knock you down with its horn and the rest of it while you are sleeping.
They will then work upon the man’s heart or they could initiate the advice for the person to visit a witch doctor. Before the person gets to the witch doctor, these witches or warlocks — whatever they are — they will have informed such witch doctor about the secrets of the troubled man; telling him the problems, the nature and the extent.
When the person, who has the problem gets to the witch doctor, the witch doctor will ask him to talk to some coins and place them on his oracles slate. He will then pretend to consult is his "ifa
" — as it is called in Yoruba. The name of the oracle is known as ifa. By reciting some incantations, some enchantments and if he has some good memory, he will recount some of the information he got earlier.
This will attract his client to think that the man has the power to read his mind. No, he doesn’t have the power to read your mind. Most of the palm readers that you go out there to meet, they only work on psychology. They do not see anything at all but you think they’ve seen something. They look at your face, they look at your appearance. They look at everything as far as you are concern.
And from that, they bring out their judgment to begin to feed your mind with all those lies. And because you are walking in such a profanity, you will not be able to define or let me say, discern what is actually going on. And finally, they will announce, I mean those witch doctors, they will announce to you that it is the old mothers.
In Yoruba language, they say "iya agba
" which translated as "old mothers" — who are at war with you. Then the witch doctors will say what they wanted to take from you — that is what the "iya igba's" wanted to take from you as the victim. So this could be anything from your money or any personal effects.
And after collecting these items demanded, the witch doctor will deliver them to the witches as previously arranged. They could then voluntarily remove those problems if they feel satisfied in the time being. Thereby, they will allow you, that individual that was tormented and punished a temporal relief and be watching you before any action is taken.
At this instance, the person will begin to look at the witch doctor as a very powerful man and as a helper. And the witches will, by now, have succeeded in turning your heart unto the worship of Satan through idolatry which is their chief ground. And this is why these people promote the work of the witch doctor and their own activities also increase.

If the first problem is removed, after about 91 days they will come with another problem entirely or they could cause the first problem to reoccur if they actually wanted a fight in you — They will cause the first problem to re-occur. This time you might have a dream and found yourself going out naked or found yourself taking some rags from your closet and putting it on yourself or sometimes you have a dream you see yourself pushing your head towards a lot of cobwebs — this means they want to cause the same problem to reoccur in your life, if they wish!
And so then, you will again run to the same witch doctor or they could indirectly come to advise you to visit another witch doctor who they will tend to describe as a more powerful man than the former one. This is how they will continue to deal with you until they have finally reduced you to nothing or they kill you if they want to.
They know you are ignorant of their powers. But it’s a shame, that people don’t ever realize that the same people, the same witches, the same wizards, the same familiar spirit, the same human being like you who trouble you with many problems are the same people who have established and are responsible for maintaining the offices of the witch doctor — The palm readers and the rest of it.
You don’t even understand all that the witch doctor, the witches are co-workers. No witch doctor can do anything apart from the witches.
So they always say: "Moju be waiyaba". That is: "I bow to the aged mothers" (I worship the aged mothers). The magicians too, bow to witches.
Any magician who wants to perform a certain ritual in town will pay homage to the witches and familiar spirits which the Yoruba call "emere" in such a town before they can start their operations. They often chant in occultic language: "O yogi, o yogi, Ma me ketere" been interpreted in Yoruba language to — because the ‘O yogi’ is not a Yoruba language but an occultic language — so been interpreted to: "Mo juba wan o; mojuba wen yaoshoronga" Meaning that "I bow to the occultism; I bow to the greater witches"
However, some magicians who obtain powers directly from the familiar spirits are on a higher platform. They, therefore, don’t ever bow again for the witches because the witches are of a lower realm as compared to the familiar spirits. The familiar spirits are more powerful in the spirit of witches.
If you have any problem at all, do not go to palm readers; don’t go to a witch doctor; don’t try to be a membership of the Satanists — You know what is going on out there. You’re seeing it on your television, you’re hearing it on your radio, you’ve been reading it in your newspapers — That’s no place for you to go.
All you need to do, give your life, give your heart totally to Jesus Christ. When your mind is fully rested on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be firmly rooted in Him. It is Jesus Christ who can remove the problem they put on you. That problem which they put on people is in the form of rags. Then Jesus Christ will take them off from you and burn them completely, by doing this, Jesus will put an end once and for all and you will be totally delivered.

When the witches are fighting with a person, they have a sign that they put on such a person. That sign is the mark of the witches — That’s what they call it, the mark of the witches. If the person, therefore, runs from one place to the other in an attempt to escape the presence of the witches, that person is merely deceiving himself. You know why? For the witches are bound everywhere, in all towns and villages, all over the world and the moment you appear in your new destination, the witches in that new place will recognize their marks on you and then they still face you afresh to deal with you more ruthlessly.
So, if you say that witches are troubling you in Chicago and so for that reason you run away down to Saint Louis, Missouri or you say witches are troubling you in Saint Louis, Missouri you run away from there, you run away to Baton Rouge in Louisiana or you run away from there you go to Los Angeles in California that does not give you the assurance or guarantee that you are free from the operations from the powers of witchcraft.
So far that reason, if you run here and there you are merely deceiving yourself. What you can do, I have told you already — is to give your life to Jesus Christ because that is the only power that the witches and warlocks and familiar spirits and palm readers fear. They dread it. They dread that name.
Galatians 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
When you give your heart to Jesus and you no longer run after herbs and roots and spirits then Jesus Christ will be your refuge. And the bible says the name of the Lord is a refuge, is a stronghold. When the righteous hide himself in it, he is saved.
The blood of Jesus Christ will wash you clean, by faith, because He is the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Jesus will then put His own mark upon you, an indelible mark.
THE TRUE CHRISTIAN
In the days before I become a Christian, whenever I met with any Christian, I always know them. I can identify them. I can tell whether you are a Christian or not. Not the nominal Christian or those who claim to be bearing Christian names or perhaps those who claim to be born in a Christian home or born into one religion or another.
The devil has no regard for such claims but he certainly fears the inwardly sanctified Christians. In the times past, whenever I met with a born again and prayerful and faithful, prayerful Christian the person who is demon possessed will not see that individual but will see a white garment on the Christian.
That is, the Christian will look like a snowball on the street, just moving on the street. Therefore, the witches, the wizards, the familiar spirits whenever they meet the true Christian then they know them. And they will be avoiding them as much as possible. Maybe this explains something to you. You can remember when those forces, I mean, those people that were possessed of lunatic spirit will see Jesus immediately they can recognize Him as a righteous person.
We often time read where some of them shouted, ‘Oh, what have we got to do with You? You Jesus of Nazereth, the Holy Thing of God"
etc. But Jesus said, ‘Shut up. Get out of him’
. And those demons will leave immediately. So you may want to test what I’m explaining to you!
If you live in a house or in a home or in an apartment and you are many in that environment and you suppose a witch is among the tenants that live around there, this is what you can do — You may begin to wake up every night and pray in the middle of the night, the period between 11pm - 3 am.
You may find some hours to pray. Do not pray loudly at all; do not shout. You can be so silent that if somebody were to sleep on the same bed with you he will not be able to hear what you are saying or to even know at all that you are even praying. You’d be surprised to know that if you continue this for about 3 days or 4 days or one month consecutively, the person who is demon possessed will challenge you even though he is not living in the same apartment with you.
He may find a way to challenge you and say, ‘Why don’t you allow people to sleep in the night? Are you the only one who knows how to pray?’
You will then begin to wonder how he or she could come out with such a challenge and other similar complaints. The truth of it is that, each time you say Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus in your prayers, you are heaping coals of fire- hot coals of fire upon the witch.
: The Ministry Exploits Of Apostle Ayo Babalola Of Christ Apostolic Church
This individual will certainly be disturbed greatly each time you mention that name Jesus. If therefore you don’t cease to pray in this manner for a long time, this individual may change his tactics in challenging you by weakening you through advice. He or she may become your friend.
And after becoming your friend, will begin to suggest things to you. ‘I noticed, my friend that you are now growing lean. You are emaciating, probably because of your sleeplessness. You’re so restless, I can observe; nervous because you do not rest your nerves’.
Well, if you are also immature in spiritual matters, you may consider the statement and encouragement of your friend and you may agree. Then the day you begin to relax and to sleep too much and you cannot wake up at night to pray anymore, this individual will be the very first person to blow you down. It is then he can come like a wind in your dream. You want to close your window, you want to close your door, you find it difficult that you cannot even close them.
And these things are still getting to you one way or another — That is the intruder that has come in the daytime. He’s now revealing who he is actually at night now. So if you begin to sleep too much he will be the first person to blow you down. Because he’s been watching you, every step he’s been watching you, every step all the way. That is why we are told in one of our hymns "Christian seek yet not repose. Hear your guardian angel say you are in the midst of foes. Watch and pray. Principalities and powers mastering their unseen array wait for thy unguarded hour. Watch and pray"

A true Christian is always in white garment like I told you in the spirit realm, in the spirit world. A true Christian is always in white garment. Even though he or she may not realize that, no matter what he or she puts on in the physical, it is the white garment that will be seen on him or her in the spirit world, in the spirit realm. Whether he wears cotton, woolen, nylon material, damask, lace, green, white, yellow, red — even an ordinary undershirt, it only the white garment that usually accompanies the true Christian wherever he goes.
And he may be sitting at home, wearing nothing but to the demons it is the white garment they will see on him. Thank God. The bible says blessed are the pure in heart, so says the bible, blessed are the pure in heart they will see God. The second thing about a true Christian is that if he is very prayerful , around him there is going to be a protective shield.
Just outside the shield is fire and that fire will encircle that individual Christian that is prayerful. So both the shield and the fire will not allow the things of the world to attract that individual. And it will not allow the things of this world to draw him away from the Lord. But when these enemies see him, they know him very well that a true Christian is coming.
They know surely well that if they should wait for him or to pass near him, they know they will get in big trouble. So they will be dodging because of the fires, since the fire has no antidote; this fire is not like the fire that magicians can easily subdue by mere incantations. No power of incantations can quench the fire of God. It is a consuming fire, that’s what the bible says. Our God is a consuming fire. Such is that nature of the fire that burns around a prayerful Christian. Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
There is a thing known as the stone of the witches. It is one of their evil instruments. It is comparable to an arrow. That is why some people say that the witches can shoot the arrows. Witches of the highest rank, witches of the highest order have four of such stones, such evil thing in them. And their functions, actually, varies. With this arrows they aim at Christians. And when the arrow is shot, the shield will fend it off or it may hit the shield and fall down.
And if such a Christian is one who prays at all times, praying both day and night, the arrow could be burned completely ever before it reaches the shield. So the more such a Christian prays, the wider the fire furnace will expand thereby chasing the forces of the devil anywhere such individual Christian will go.
But such a Christian must beware of falling into sin
because the very moment you commit the sin, maybe fornication, adultery, perhaps you start smoking or drinking, the protective fire will be extinguished automatically.
Sin is terrible in its nature. But time does not permit me here to treat the subject of sin. Sin can kill a person easily just as a viper’s bite
, like any deadly poison. As water has power over fire, so also sin has power over the soul of man. As soon as the fire is extinguished, the demons will be seeking for a way to be knocking off that Christian with the shield. That protective covering shield could be knocked off since the fire is extinguished.
The arrows are most frequently used against the backslidden Christians. And don’t forget, what the Holy Spirit has to tell us in the book of 2nd Peter 2 20-22" For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire..
Therefore if a Christian who once has been zealous for the Lord then backslides and falls into sin but does not repent, the witches use their arrows on him effectively. After they have shot him, the problems will overwhelm him and if such a Christian has lost contact with the favor of God as a result of sin and he doesn’t repent, there can be no mercy from the devil. It is against his nature.
THE POWER OF PRAYER
Another point that I would like for us to examine here is Prayer, the witches and the Christian. If a person spends tens of thousands of money, no matter what currency, of the world, in preparing a medicine, it does not take a witch up to a second to spoil or neutralize the power in such a medicine.
But if a person prays in the name of Jesus for even one minute, that prayer will become incomprehensible to the witch forever. The reason for this is because, when we talk of prayer, it means the WORD which is God Himself. And since the Almighty God is above all powers, nothing can ever unfold the mystery of the power behind prayers
offered in the name of Jesus.
For this reason, prayer is the only power and weapon that witches and wizards and warlocks and familiar spirits cannot spoil.
It is easier for the witches to spoil any herbal portion or portions because they have power over such things, over leaves and herbs. Some people often deceive themselves like I know in Yoruba land, some people often deceive themselves that is such a charm that appease the witches. And they call that medicine (eniwajeh). So that witches will be happy with them, you know. They believe that making this kind of medicine, they believe witches will be happy with them.
But no, no way. No such thing! You cannot appease the devils. But the Christian can rebuke them in Jesus name
. And therefore, if any witch doctor tells you that he will go to the bush in search of such herbs or leaves or roots or fruits or seeds or anything to face the spirit of witches and familiar spirits and the rest of them, the witches and familiar spirits will only get such a witch doctor confused.
The only power under the heaven the witches and familiar spirits cannot spoil is the power of prayer. And that’s why I always tell Christian brethren all over the world, if you are too busy to pray, you will be too busy to live a holy life. And if you are a prayerless Christian you are a powerless Christian.
You’ve got to pray always because prayer grabs eternity. For this reason if you know you will accept Jesus Christ and be praying, you must be totally surrendered to His will. Praying with all your heart, while putting your faith and trust in Him, obeying His word because obedience is the essence of holiness and the bible says without holiness no man can see God.
So when you say you accept Jesus Christ and you attend service regularly in the church but you still visit witch doctors, you still visit palm readers, you still go to secret society meetings, you still wear charms such as rings, wristbands and talisman and chains and phylacteries, etc. You take part in cultural and prominent rituals as it is called in Yoruba language (oro le) then your prayer is an abomination unto the Lord.
Consider what Proverb 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
Did you hear that? He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law of God, even his prayer shall be abomination.
So I want you to get that in your mind. You can also search and search Proverb 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight
, Proverbs 21:27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
So even the witch doctor, after making the charms sometimes, all of the times – not sometimes because I was one. I know where they’re coming from. After making some charms they say ‘May God let it work’
. I mean, this is the worse foolishness I ever hear from people. If they know God has supreme authority to let it work, why again do they make charms instead of praying directly to God?
As for me, I do talk to God in prayers; I talk to Jesus in prayers. He answers me and He fulfills my requests. And I’m sure there are millions of people on the face of the Earth today that will testify to this plain truth. People are full of fear and that is why they go in pursuit of herbs but we need not fear.
Fear has torment, don’t forget. In the beginning, God put everything under the authority of man. Remember Genesis 1: 26, let them have dominion.
That’s what the Word says. Somehow, it’s a shame that people run about to get leaves and roots and herbs to make charms, to make medicine, to put themselves under the control of the power of witchcraft.
This implies that you have voluntarily surrendered the power that God has given to you unto herbs and leaves and witchcraft and palm readers. God never planned it that leaves and roots will have power and authority on any man. That was not in God’s plan. If any man, therefore, goes about looking for power in herbs, leaves and roots he can never find favor with God since he will be violating the command of God: "thou shall have no other god besides Me (Exodus 20:3).
Jesus said God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
This means that you cannot carve an image and claim to be worshiping God in that form. Also you cannot gather leaves and herbs and claim to be worshiping God through herbs.
By doing this, you are only worshiping the demons through idols. But you must worship the Lord with all your heart. Let me tell you clearly from my past experiences. Before I become a Christian, I had two idols known as "ashonye" in Yoruba language . If anybody came to consult me, as a witch doctor, the demons in those idols will be telling me the purpose of the coming of that individual even to the hearing of that individual that has come in.
This is the work of the devil not of God. The very day these satanic devices encountered the power in the name of Jesus Christ, it failed woefully
. So my sincere charge is that if anybody will follow Jesus Christ, to do so wholeheartedly. Jesus Christ knows how to deliver His own people from the powers of the darkness of this world. Therefore, my brethren around, you — even you, you, yes, right there — you, I just want you to give your heart to Jesus Christ. He is the savior of the world; the lover of your soul. Give your heart to Him today. Now!
The importance of prayer in the life of a Christian
: to subdue the powers of demons and especially the witches cannot be overemphasized. This is because even when the sermon is being preached in the church or in any place, these forces will seek to choke the Words in the hearts and minds of the hearers and they even try to choke the preacher by seizing his voice or causing any kind of problem within his system.
But if the preacher is a prayerful and faithful Christian, they will always meet with failures. Those forces will always meet with failures. Therefore, my brethren, pray without ceasing as the bible enjoins you. 1st Thessalonians 5:17 pray without ceasing
. When you dream and you see many snakes and you receive a snake bite in your sleep or you find many masquerades, running after you it is the handiwork of the greater witches.
When you see cats and cows, it’s the work of the lesser witches. If you wake up from such a dream you realize that your body could be warm, developing excessive temperature and there will be fear all over the place and you become so terrified.
Listen, do not be afraid. All you need to do, even if you don’t know what to say — just get on your knees and begin to say JESUS, JESUS, JESUS
As you call the name of Jesus fervently, with your whole heart and trust in Him with all your heart. You will see all the forces of the enemy will flee away. Your fear will disappear. Boldness and determination will come and you will be able to pray more. Remember, David prayed and the council of Ahithophel turned, was turned into foolishness.
THE WITCHCRAFT MEETINGS
Now, let’s talk about the witches’ meetings. When they are about to assemble or sometimes when they have gathered, a leader will be chanting some words in Yoruba language, saying "arogbe le yin koh (3x)" meaning "how is the aged one in your house doing?’
The followers will respond accordingly "arogbe le wan gbeh (3x)" meaning "the aged one in our house is fine"
You will begin to wonder: who is this aged one in the house? It is not nurse but a witch board, the witch craft that they possess. Then the leader will further ask "what type of clothes does the aged one of your house weave?"
They will again answer "arogbe le wan osho meta, ayagbo, ayatoh" meaning that "the aged one of our house weaves three types of clothes that we may live long"
Finally the leader will chant "let us go into the dark night where it is to us as daylight"
Then the leader will now make a final shriek "eeyeh!’ It is at this last word that you hear the sound of the witch board in the neighborhood, probably on a tree or whatever or you hear the noise of the witch.
If you hear the noise anywhere in the neighborhood, don’t be afraid; don’t let fear grip you at all. But instead, take boldness and pray and say: "the Lord Jesus rebuke you"
for many days or weeks. They will never come to that environment anymore. They will never come to that neighborhood, depending on how prayerful you are.
THE WITCHES AND ACCIDENTS
Now let us discuss about the witches and accidents. The witches are wicked spirits like I’ve been telling you. And their determination over a man is never for good. For example, if a person buys a new vehicle and the witches determine to snatch it from him; they know how to do so by causing an accident, either by causing the individual to neglect some road warnings, some road signs and the rest of it.
They will just cause that accident. Or they can cause some mechanical problems which you did not envisage before; they will definitely cause that accident. The witches live a double life. They live a physical life of a normal person and they also live in the realm of the evil spirits using their own soul.
Therefore when a vehicle has been involved in a serious accident and is damaged beyond repair, it means they have taken it into their own realm in the spirit for their own use.
Though, this may be difficult for you to believe, I know it happens. Thereby, the devil try to counterfeit, the devil try to counterfeit what the bible says: we shall not all sleep, we shall be changed. As I have earlier declared, the witches have no good determination for any person. But if you are given to much prayer, there’s nothing the witches can do to you since they can never spoil the power of prayer.
This means that God has given authority to the person who is sincerely following Jesus Christ and does not seek the power of the devil. Moses, in the land of Egypt, by the authority of God, overcame all the magicians and all occultists of Egypt. Don’t forget, the word of God used while praying is the authority of God given to man. But witches, they are mere which is familiar spirits and all occultists God considers them to be rebels.
I want you to read Micah 5:12-15 "And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers: Thy graven images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands.And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities. And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not hea
So, I’m saying that only Jesus Christ can set such people free. Don’t forget, whosoever the Son of man sets free will be free indeed. The day such a person will surrender fully to Jesus Christ and denounce the witchcraft and all other powers he or she has possess in the evil world then the person stops being rebellious.
The blood of Jesus atones for all sins. You must therefore renounce all the other powers and rely on the power of prayer through Jesus Christ. Then, as you talk to God — as you talk to God He, too, talks to you through the bible, His word.
THE WITCHES AND SMOKING
Let us examine the witches and smoking. If you see any person or people smoking cigarettes or marijuana or hemp or cocaine, any kind of thing smokable — usually, it’s not their fault, it is the witches who are the cause of such evil works.
If therefore you see such a person, you should be praying for them; if you have them in your family.
When the witches want to fight with any individual, and they discover that the nature of such a person is too strong for them, what they do is this: they attack indirectly and use that individual to destroy himself.
The individual will be doing those things but he will not know the forces behind what he was doing. They will take what is to be his prosperity of that individual’s life and begin to insert it into cigarette sticks or hemp rolls or pipes for such individual to continue to burn it up by himself. He will then claim to be enjoying life through smoking but, very gradually ruin his life for him and some people after been trapped by marijuana, by cocaine, by hemp smoking and they don’t know what to do again.
They commit suicide, thereby, become useless to their family, become useless to themselves, become useless to society. John 10:10
Jesus said a thief cometh not but to steal, to kill, to destroy and that is the goal of the witches. That is the goal of the devil: to kill and destroy. They make you useless, useless to yourself, useless to the family, useless to the nation.
Now, if you observe the person is well to do before the attack came and instill in him the spirit of smoking, they will plant an incurable disease or many sicknesses in his body to the extent that he will not even know what he’s suffering from. So you’d be surprised that the-the person cannot enjoy his prosperity due to ill health. Then the person who had stamina and used to be very strong, very hard working before he started…before he started to smoke, he will not be able to work much again.
He will start to pant and to puff. These are some of the evil effects of the diseases caused by the attack of the witches on that individual through smoking. People will say he contracted those diseases through smoking. Many people who die as a result of smoking, people often say that witches have killed them.
This is very true. But the method by which the deed is done — the method by which the damage was done is not what people actually think. All they do is they help the person to kill himself. Many governments forbid the advertisement of cigarettes in their televisions or radio because they know smoking leads to death so they don’t want to propagate it.
Even in countries where they advertise the sales of cigarettes, it is the profits that the government derives from all those narcotics. From the proceeds of the sales that makes them do it. Everybody, I’m sure, everybody in their consciousness, they know smoking is evil and it causes ill health and untimely death.
THE WITCHES AND DRINKING
Let talk about witches and drinking. In drinking, the witches have charmed into the drinks three evil spirits, four, if you like to know.
- There are the spirits of peacock.
- The spirits of gorilla.
- The spirits of a lion and
- The spirit of a pig.
You discover that the moment a person becomes a drunkard, the things he could never accomplish in so many years, he will be saying that he will do it in the next two hours or he want to do it immediately, or that he can do it within a short time. He will start to talk proudly and to show off because the pride of the peacock has become a part of him.
As he then drinks more heavily, he will become more talkative and start to shout down on every other person in the conversation. He will become rude to almost any body and he may not know. And when he knows he might not care at all to feel sorry. He now becomes oppressed by the spirit of the gorilla.
The gorilla, in its nature, neither fears nor respects anybody. He will become talkative, boastful and rude like a lion because he believes he’s the overall thing out there. Then as he continues with the drinking, the witches will inject into him the spirit of the pig. The nature of the pig, as you know it, is to wallow in the mud.
No matter how you try to keep a pig clean, it will only feel satisfied when it gets inside the mud. So until you get into your cup before you feel satisfied, isn’t it? And how long will you cope with this alcoholic problem? So, it’s in the last stages during the life of a drunkard, he will drink till he starts to vomit, he starts to throw up or roll himself on the floor. This is how the witches fight with a drunkard until they have destroyed him completely.
There is something they use in their group, just like a thick cotton lid that has been soaked in thick palm oil. When the witches want to plant in a man either the spirit of smoking or the spirit of drunkenness, they will first use the heavy cotton wool to block his inner ears tightly.
The reason why they do this is that when people talk to him to stop drinking or to stop smoking, he will never listen.
Every advice you give him along that line will irritate that individual. If you warn him, for example, that smoking leads to death, he could reply to you "What is your concern if I die? My life is not even yours anyway"
This is why it is very difficult for an unbeliever to give up smoking or drinking by his own self will because there is a power, there is an unseen-forces that is driving this individual into doing those things that is unseemly, that is totally out of character.
He may desire to break the habit but, within a short time, he’s still coming back to it. He will go back to it because the dog will never feel satisfied until he goes back to his vomit. The determination alone is not enough; it’s not strong enough because it’s a bondage.
Smoking, drunkenness, fornication is a bondage.
So it is very necessary for the problem to be removed from the root and this is done only when the smoker or the drunkard or the addict gives his life to Christ Jesus. When the smoker or drunkard or the addict gives his life to Jesus Christ, the first thing that the Lord Jesus will do is to remove the cotton lid that was used to block his inner ears so that the person can hear the word of God because the bible says by spiritual hearing you can hear the word of God and by so doing you have faith. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
When he allows the word of God to have a place in his heart then he can be delivered from the bondage of smoking and drunkenness and fornication — and every other kind of addiction. The bible says, and I repeat again, faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. But the person whose spiritual hearing had been blocked up, how can he hear the word of God that saves?
That’s one thing we need to consider here. So, if you are in the situation and you think you’re living a life of luxury when you put those pipes and you fill the whole room with that dirty smoke, and your room will be stinking. When you smoke those pipes, those cigars, those cigarettes, those hemp's, those marijuana, those cocaine — when you smoke them and you think you’re living a life of luxury, I bet you, you are only been deceived.

Satan is deceiving you and for how long will you remain in that deceit? The purpose of the witches is to destroy you by causing to smoke and to drink and to commit fornication ruining your blood every minute of the day. And sometimes, you can contract AIDS. Don’t forget, that enemy is out there.
How happily you will live, how happily you’d be if you could only be free from the chains of the forces of witchcraft that has bind you for so long. How happily would you be if you be delivered from the spirit of smoking, and of drunkenness and of fornication and lying spirit that is destroying your homes,
that is destroying your heart – and even you lie to yourself?!
I know that the happiness could return back to you, even this very hour. I know that the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ is the power to help you and to deliver you from all these evil bondage's of the enemy. You can be delivered from bondage of the witches and wizards and Satan and warlocks. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts shall help you to do it, amen!
I just want you to know "God really loves you" The devil can use his power to keep you in bondage through ignorance. You’d be claiming that no one can teach you anything — that’s the worse enemy we have in this dispensation. We don’t like to be taught of what to do. We don’t like to be shown what to do. You’d be claiming you know better whereas you know nothing.
But when you learn the truth, you are taking the first bold step to walking in total victory over the enemy. And I want you to know this: one who thinks he knows everything, he still has a lot to learn. You don’t have to fail in any area of your life. I know it is the failure of your life — life’s frustration that has drawn many of you into drunkenness, into smoking, into all those drug addiction, frustration of life.
You want to become something. You don’t have to fail. God did not create you for failure, He designed you for accomplishment. But because you don’t know this truth, the devil is lying to you. You don’t have to be defeated in your life. You don’t have to be defeated physically. You don’t have to be defeated spiritually. You don’t have to be defeated mentally. You don’t have to be defeated financially.
You can overcome the devil. You can! Yes, I mean you can make it because the power of the devil is a stolen power. He stole that power and God Almighty is here to subdue the devil in your life if you would be willing to give that life of yours to Jesus Christ.
So, right now you hear this and you realize you’re in the bondage of smoking, of drunkenness, fornication, adultery and lying. I challenge you in the name of the Lord to give your life to Jesus Christ who will rebuke the evil spirit in your life and you will be totally free. Amen.!
Give your life to Jesus today. Do not doubt Him anymore. And I don’t want you to regret ever coming into this world at all. You know something? God has deliberately spared your life today to listen to this message.
And I know, deliberately sparing your life is with a purpose. God don’t do things without a purpose. And the purpose of God sparing your life today is that there is something in your life that is wrong — God wants you to put it right. But if you fail to put it right!
