Well shut my mouth!
I want to emphasize again that we are not to be obsessed with witchcraft. We should become more and more familiar with the Bible, instead. But knowing how witchcraft can work can be an important indicator for prayer. For example, we’ve seen that witchcraft can be built into buildings and monuments, particularly those in Washington, D.C. Knowing that should direct our prayers for our country and especially for our president.
It’s also important to understand that virtually every element of witchcraft is a satanic counterfeit of a godly practice. For example, we’ve seen that incantation is a satanic counterfeit to prayer and singing worship songs.
In this post and future posts I am going to show you some common habits and objects of witchcraft that many Christians surround themselves with unawares. I want to help you understand and conquer the witchcraft in your everyday life. As long as you continue to allow witchcraft to operate in your life, your walk with God will suffer. God is not going to bless any witchcraft, and the consequences could be severe:
- Children rebel and even walk away from God;
- Marital strife and even divorce;
- Bills and debt pile up;
- It’s impossible to get ahead (much less prosper) despite all efforts;
- Chronic health problems;
- A life full of drama in all relationships;
- Little vices (drinking, gossiping, eating, shopping, gambling, video gaming, etc.) become uncontrollable;
- Chronic depression and thoughts of suicide;
- Family members suffer chronic depression and thoughts of suicide—and perhaps even attempt suicide; and so forth.
I’m not saying that all of these thing will happen to you, but do you want to risk even a few of them happening? One key thing is to watch what you say.
The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences, (Proverbs 18:21).
Hindrances that you might be practicing with your words
A curse is defined as: “a solemn utterance intended to invoke a supernatural power [demon] to inflict harm or punishment on someone or something. Many Christians unknowingly pronounce curses over themselves and their loved ones because these curses have become popular ways to speak. For example: “Their chocolate cake [or anything desirable] is to die for.” We’ve all said this, and of course you don’t mean it literally, but that’s the problem with curses: in the spirit realm our words are what count, regardless of our intention. Of course you’re not saying that you would willingly die for a piece of cake! Think for a moment about all the sickness and death words you speak over yourself and your loved ones in a day:
“Mom’s gonna kill me when she sees . . .”
“You look like death warmed over”
“It just kills me when they say . . .”
“I could have killed him when he . . .”
“I’m sick and tired of . . .”
“I’m sick to death of . . .”
“If looks could kill . . .”
You might also be pronouncing other kinds of self-defeating curses over yourself:
“My boss hates me.”
“Every time I go to the mailbox there’s another bill.”
“I never have time to myself.”
“I can win for losing.”
“I never know what to say.”
“I’m always running late.”
“I’ll never understand . . .”
“My kid [spouse, boss, whoever] never listens to me.”
And many people when talking about their health “own” the disease, calling it “my cancer” or “my arthritis.”
How about this cute little song, inspired by Disney: “I owe, I owe, so off to work I go!” The defeated enemy wants to keep you as a slave to a job you hate. He invented the rat race in order to keep you spinning that little hamster wheel and going nowhere. But Kingdom economy is different. God wants to put you to work for His Kingdom doing something that you love to do. You know what it is that you love doing. For me, it’s writing. You might not get a traditional paycheck, but God will not ever fail to pay you for your service.
Listen closely to what you say. Consider your self-talk. How do you talk to yourself? Many years ago I was shocked to notice how many times in a day I called myself stupid. Is it any wonder that I found myself doing stupid things several times a day? It took some real effort, but I stopped saying that to myself. I repeat: in the spirit realm our words are what count, regardless of our intention.
Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips, (Psalm 141:3, NIV).
Another thing that you need to be aware of is speaking the name of any evil being. Think about it. When you want to get someone’s attention, you say their name. Speaking their name gets their attention and often actually calls them. And even though satan is more of a title, I rarely ever say it. I also avoid ever pronouncing the name lucifer, the name which he was given in Heaven. He lost his rights to that name (which means light-bearer) because of rebellion, though he still answers to it. This is why I have gotten into the habit of calling him the defeated enemy. I don’t want to call him or catch his attention, but if he’s listening, I want to remind him that he is already defeated. I also want to remind myself of my position of victory over the defeated enemy.
But there are other names that you might not be aware of (I caution you not to read their names aloud):
Magic Words – abracadabra – There is an Aramaic phrase avra kehdabra, meaning “I will create as I speak.” Though commonly used in magic and conjuring, this is actually the name of a fallen angel, identified as an Assyrian god.
alakazam – This is a magic and conjuring word that often follows abracadabra. I wasn’t able to learn much about this spirit, besides its name. But there is a pokemon character by this name and it evolves from another character called kadabra, which evolved from abra. You might think that pokemon is harmless, but consider the following:
- pokemon means pocket monster;
- they grow and evolve and have all sorts of magical powers;
- the children who play pokemon develop a relationship with them;
- the idea of the “game” is to become the top pokemon master in the world;
- the children learn to channel the power of the pokemon through the cards and other paraphernalia of the game;
- the children learn how to cast spells and use psychic powers;
- and all this takes place as a fantasy role-playing game—but it’s very real and really demonic.
- The creator of pokemon said that he made it up as a way to rebel against his parents’ Christianity. He admits that pokemon is a satanic creation.
It’s best not to speak the name of any of the pokemon characters. And no matter how innocent or silly the “magic words” seem, like the silly and innocent sounding bibbidy-bobbidy-boo, it’s also best not to say them. Chances are that there is a demon attached to them.
Foreign or Music Words – abraxas – People from my generation will probably remember this as the title of Carlos Santana’s most popular album. Written abrazas, the word means embrace in Spanish, and this is how I understood it in 1970 when I bought the album. This is the name of a fallen angel, known as the leader of the archon—rulers among the fallen angels—so a leader among the rulers of the fallen angels.
macarena – Do you know the lyrics to the macarena? To most of us it just sounds like a lot of gibberish punctuated with hey macarena. It’s about a woman named macarena who has sex with her boyfriend’s two friends while he’s being drafted into the army. And people play this song at weddings! That’s not a good way to start a covenant relationship.
While we’re on the subject of music, the song Hotel California is definitely dark. It was written by members of the Eagles about selling their souls to get fame, fortune, and the American Dream, and the disillusionment when they got it. Think of the final lyric “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.” Check out means commit suicide.
There are many other popular songs with hidden meanings. Here are some:
- Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind is about a couple on a crystal meth binge;
- Every Breath You Take by The Police is about stalking an ex-girlfriend;
- Slide by Goo Goo Dolls is about a teenage girl who gets an abortion;
- Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler is a vampire love song, according to songwriter Jim Steinman;
- Waterfalls by TLC is about promiscuity, AIDS, and illegal drugs;
- I Don’t Like Mondays by The Boomtown Rats is about Brenda Ann Spencer who went on a shooting spree at an elementary school in San Diego in 1979;
- Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People is about the thinking of an isolated, psychotic kid that leads him to shoot up a school;
- Poker Face by Lady Gaga is about her bisexuality (wanting to have sex with a woman while having sex with a man);
- Imagine by John Lennon is “virtually the Communist manifesto,” according to Lennon, himself;
- The One I Love by R.E.M. is not a love song at all, but R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck called it “savagely anti-love.” While singer Michael Stipe said that he almost didn’t record the song because it was “too brutal” and “really violent and awful;”
- Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams is about promiscuous sex. The title ’69 is not the year (Adams would have been only ten years old), but about the sexual position.
Within the music industry there is a well-known practice of taking the master recording to a satanic temple. Former illuminati witch, John Todd, said that every rock musician in America had to become a witch in order to get a recording contract, and that every master recording was taken to a Satanic temple to be possessed by a demon. Each major record label had its own temple. Todd recounted a conversation he had with David Crosby after his conversion:
Todd: Do they still bring the master [recording] to the Temple and conjure demons into the master? Is the purpose of rock music still to use witchcraft, cast spells?
Crosby: Of course. You know that.
Consider that every time those songs are played (in your car, at your job, in your home), it is calling that demon. And think about the way these songs program children who hear them again and again. I wouldn’t recommend listening to any suspect music or singing or dancing to it. I would rather be in step with God than the defeated enemy.
Biblical Names – Although I said that I try never to say any of these names, the exception is while reading the Bible aloud. Even then I only speak the name if I absolutely can’t avoid it. That’s because the Bible is so specific about not speaking their names:
Pay close attention to all My instructions. You must not call on the name of any other gods. Do not even speak their names, (Exodus 23:13, emphasis mine).
With that in mind, here are some Biblical and Biblically-related names to avoid speaking:
ba’al and asherah – Many Semitic gods were called ba’al, but particularly among the Canaanites he was worshiped as the god of rain and fertility together with his female counterpart, asherah. Rites included orgies “under every green tree.” The name ba’al means owner, lord, master, and husband. Jezebel was a high priestess of ba’al. Two years ago a replica of the arch of ba’al was put up in New York City.
molech – is the Biblical name of a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice. The idol looked like a half-man, half-bull and had a furnace in its belly. Babies were put into its arms and dropped from there into the furnace and burned alive. The modern version of molech worship is abortion. The name is also sometimes spelled moloch, milcom, or malcam. However you spell it, avoid saying this demon’s name.
dagon – The Philistines worshiped dagon, a fish god, depicted as a merman. If you’ve ever been to Rome there are statues of mermen all over town. When the Ark of the Covenant was placed in his temple, the statue fell on its face before the Ark.
leviathan – Written about in detail in Job 41, this demon has been variously described as a crocodile, a sea serpent, a seven-headed snake, a hippopotamus, and even a brontosaurus. A survey of the Biblical citations shows that this thing is a demon—a very powerful demon that may be a shapeshifter—that only God, Himself, can deal with. If this demon is too powerful for us, then we sure don’t want to risk accidentally inviting it into our lives.
beelzebub – Mentioned only in the Gospels, this is called the prince or ruler of demons. It is also called the lord of the flies. This demon was worshiped by the Philistines. Many sources equate beezelbub with lucifer. There is a manga character by this same name.
azazel – This is a fallen angel mentioned in Leviticus and in the Book of Enoch. He taught humans metal arts to make jewelry and weaponry (swords, knives, shields, and breastplates). He taught women to use makeup, including the use of antimony. During the Feast of Atonement two goats are brought to the temple. They are chosen by lot: one for the Lord and one for azazel. The one for the Lord is sacrificed on the altar, while the one for azazel is driven out of town and off a high cliff to its death.
semjaza – This is also a fallen angel mentioned in the Book of Enoch. He was the leader of the 200 fallen angels that raped human women and fathered the nephilim in Genesis 6:1-2. He taught the casting of spells, and root-cuttings—so the practice of witchcraft can be traced to this fallen angel. Enoch states that people brought the giant nephilim all the food they could find, but it wasn’t enough, so the giants started eating the people. He goes on to say:
And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones, (Enoch 7:5-6).
Sinning against the birds and animals probably means that they ate them. Up to that point mankind only had permission to eat plants. He is called the angel of pride and the angel of Islam. For leading the 200 fallen angels to sin by raping human women and fathering the nephilim, he has been sent to Tartarus, a prison under the earth:
For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the day of judgment, (2 Peter 2:4).
And now there’s some New Age idiot that is channeling him.
This is by no means a complete list, but I hope you understand that we need to be very careful about what we say. God is good!
 If you haven’t read Witchcraft Unveiled, I recommend that you do. It will help you to understand how deeply occultic many everyday elements in our culture have become—and more importantly, how to stand against it.
 A known member of the illuminati and a freemason of the 33rd degree.
 I’ll bet you didn’t even know that this is a name. Consider the power of words.
 Fallen angels and demons are different. Fallen angels have bodies, and the nephilim of Genesis 6:1-2 were fathered by them. The nephilim were soulless creatures resulting from the union of humans and fallen angels. As soulless they have no conscience, and therefore no scruples or morals. When they died (most of them in the flood), they lost their bodies in death, but their spirits remain. These disembodied spirits are desperate to get back into a body and enjoy all the physical pleasures they enjoyed in life. This is why demon possession came about.
 Now think of all the Biblical history of the Assyrians: not good! They were the most heartless and fiercest of Israel’s enemies. Does this sound like someone you want to call?
 You might say it’s like an invisible friend, but an invisible monster friend with magical powers? These are demons.
 In New Age terminology a master is someone who controls spirits.
 The satanic counterfeit to signs, wonders, miracles, and prophecy.

 If you want to hear the lyrics in English you can watch this video, but be warned that it’s not a Christian video, so there is some bad language.

 See also Deuteronomy 12:3, Joshua 23:7, Psalm 16:4, & Hosea 2:17.
 See Deuteronomy 12:2; 1 Kings 14:23; 2 Kings 16:4 & 17:10; 2 Chronicles 28:4; Isaiah 57:5; Jeremiah 2:20, 3:6 & 13; Ezekiel 6:13 & 20:28.
 I never knew the connection to dagon until researching this post.
 See 1 Samuel 5.
 See Job 41, Psalm 74:14 & 104:26, and Isaiah 27:1.
 Makeup has uses in witchcraft (see Witchcraft Unveiled).
 Antimony is a semi-solid metal, number 51 on the table of elements. Antimony is silvery-white and ancient Egyptians used it as eye makeup.
 Permission to eat meat came at the end of the flood when Noah exited the Ark, Genesis 9:1-4. And the flood, you will remember, was to wipe out the nephilim race and all that carried the fallen angel blood.
 This shouldn’t be surprising, since Islam is a witchcraft religion.
