Breaking Occult Spells:
Breaking Occult Spells: God the Spell Breaker, the Spell Buster
The nature of breaking occult spells:
God breaks the spells from bearing fruit, not us. He is the spell breaker or the spell buster. We only do our part and then leave him to do his part in the spirit realm. Just as people in occult groups summon evil spirits through their spells we, as Christians, summon God through the part we play.
We therefore do not confront the evil spirits that are being summoned by people in the occult. Neither do we confront people in occult groups who're working in partnership with evil spirits by casting spells. The battle is the Lord's. He deals with the evil spirits in the spirit realm and he also deals with the people working in alliance with the evil spirits.
Sometimes God can call some of us to confront people in occult groups. This is usually an exception not the rule. One example we have in the bible is Elijah's. God allowed him to call 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of Asherah for a challenge on whose God was real and powerful. Baal and Asherah (Ashtoreth) were part of foreign gods and goddesses that at some point the Israelites ended up serving. They forgot their real God.
Can you imagine one person against 950 people from the occult who were skilled in their own magic? This was no ordinary person. He was representing the only true God in all creation. This is also our story. We ought to see ourselves in it. We represent the only true God in all creation. Through God each of us can overcome 1,000 or more people from the occult world if called to a contest match! That's why none of us ought to be afraid of one person or group in the occult that may be in our neighborhood. No matter what rank they may be in Satanism they're too small for the God we serve!
Elijah's story is even funny to read. You'll fall off your chair reading how he taunted and mocked the large assembly of servants from the false gods. They performed all their rituals all day to summon their gods and goddesses and nothing happened. They even went on to cut themselves with their swords to draw blood, a Satanic occult sacrificial symbol, yet nothing happened.
“At noon Elijah began to taunt them. "Shout louder!" he said. "Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened." So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention,” 1 Kings 18:27-29.
This is how miserably they failed to summon their gods to fulfill their desires. God stopped the evil spirits in the spirit realm from being active even after they were summoned through various rituals among those who worshiped them. The magicians or spiritual leaders of these false gods had a few successes in the past. But when God intervened they could not perform even one feat, the entire 950 of them!
When it was Elijah's turn everything worked according to plan. This includes the most desired matter among the Israelites: rain came, after a difficult drought spell. And the Israelites returned to worshiping their real God!
Focusing on God's barriers that prevent spells from materializing
Chapter 2 in my other book on breaking curses covers on five conditions under which curses gain legal entry to operate. The chapter notes that curses on people are not random. They do not just happen by chance, or by bad luck, or accidentally occur on a person.
The chapter gives five conditions that any curse or pronouncement of misfortune must meet before it can have any power on a person. All five conditions have to be met. Thus if a curse qualifies in any four of the five conditions covered it still fails to harvest or bear fruit over an individual.
This is the good news on curses. God has made it harder for such pronouncements of misfortune to bear fruit in order to protect us from being easily harmed. Curses have tough conditions to meet before they can even materialize.
In a similar way occult spells that end up materializing their intended outcome are not random or by chance. People in occult groups can cast as many spells as they wish but all their spells will not materialize if the barriers that prevent spells are in place (active). However, if the barriers that prevent occult spells are not in place their spells are able to materialize in the earthly realm.
Thus our concern or focus ought not to be on what occult groups are up to, including those in Satanism. Our concern ought to be on ensuring that the barriers that prevent spells are in place (active). These barriers work to prevent spells from materializing in the earthly realm. God breaks the occult spells by stopping the evil spirits in the spirit realm from performing their mission.
Thus occult groups do not determine the outcome of their works. We'd have more chaos in the world than we do now if they were in control of whether or not their spells materialize. The presence or absence of barriers against spells is what determines the outcome. If the barriers are present on a particular matter, person, or circumstance their spell casting rituals will not materialize what was intended to be fulfilled in the earthly realm. If the barriers are absent their spell casting rituals will materialize what was intended to be fulfilled.
What are these barriers that work to prevent spells from materializing in the earthly realm?
There are three barriers that God works through to prevent spells from materializing in the earthly realm. The next three sections outline these three types of barriers against occult spells. In summary the barriers are:
- Barrier 1 against spells: God breaking spells via his sovereign will
- Barrier 2: God's work via Christ's atonement -The Blood of Jesus
- Barrier 3: God breaking spells through our obedience -Our testimony
These barriers do not all have to be in place for spells to be prevented materializing in the earthly realm. Any one barrier is sufficient for God to use in preventing occult spells from materializing.
However, notice that the barriers against occult spells are listed in the order of our level of input. This is to show that at the highest level, in his sovereign will, God chooses to break occult spells out to his own prerogative. At the lowest level God leaves it to us to play a role in determining the outcome. The next three sections outline these three types of barriers against occult spells.
Barrier 1 against spells: God breaking spells through his sovereign will <a name="_Toc192494330"></a>
This is the highest level chooses to break occult spells from materializing in the earthly realm. At this level we have no role or part to play. It's his full responsibility and affair to intervene. It's fully his business.
Thus at the highest level God is the gatekeeper of all matters and activities throughout his created universe -including gatekeeper of occult spells. At this level God's sovereign will is our protection from certain occult spells that are prevented or broken from materializing. In his sovereign will he determines the outcome of certain occult spells.
God's sovereign will is his most supreme will that's beyond anyone's input. It's also beyond our understanding. Bible scholars classify God's will into four hierarchical categories:
- God's sovereign (paramount and prerogative) will.
- “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed (to us) belong to us and to our children for ever, that we may follow all the words of this law,” Deuteronomy 29:29.
- God's moral and revealed will.
- “ALL Scripture is God-breathed (inspired) and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work,” 2 Timothy 3: 16-17 (emphasis added).
- God's special will for each individual.
- “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,” Jeremiah 29:11
- “The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you ALL things,” (John 14: 26).
- Each person's individual will (free choice).
- “This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live,” Deuteronomy 30:19.
Thus there is so much about God that we don't know. It's all hidden in his sovereign will (no. 1 above). For a reason he's kept us ignorant on more than we can imagine.
