“So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Ps. 90:12).
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Rom. 8:37).
Thanks for standing with us for the “Online Healing Room” ministry. We met last Saturday and the Lord was really with us. The Lord wants all of His followers to be able to heal the sick. I know the key is activation. Activation can be thought of like this—because God has already called us to do this, we know that by His grace He has already provided the faith and anointing which will “kick in” when we obey and do what He told us to. So Saturday, July 16, was a day of obeying and “doing” healing ministry. It was blessed and pretty amazing.
Breaking Witchcraft and Keeping it Broken
Sowing Seeds and Reap Harvest in Mid October 2022
A few days ago, I was asked to pray for a colleague who is a leader. He had come under intense pressure and spiritual attack. He shared suddenly he was having thoughts of death and suicide. He was so surprised by this. Clearly those weren’t his thoughts, but were thoughts from demons. He knew and we knew it was a spirit of witchcraft. We prayed against it and broke it. Hallelujah
Then this morning on MPP, there was a strong word stating, “Shout and break the power of witchcraft.” The thing about witchcraft, or any demonic attack, is the subterfuge or hiddenness. The devil always tries to remain hidden. He is most successful if he can get us to think the problem is because of our weaknesses or failings. But when we know the devil is the source of that problem, then victory is just a step away. A few thoughts are as follows:
1. The shout is a powerful spiritual weapon. Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come forth” (John 11:44). His shout broke the power of the spirit of death, and Lazarus was resurrected. In fact when Jesus returns it will be with a shout! We read, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first” (1 Thess. 4:16).
Today, my team and I will “shout” to break any witchcraft that might be against us. We will also shout for you. Better yet, you should also shout. Know that as you shout in faith, the shout of the Lord is being released through you and breaks the power of witchcraft. Suddenly you will see issues more clearly. And little things that have been hassling you will just break off.
2. Keeping witchcraft broken by embracing your identity. This Hebrew month, Tammuz, in which we enter the “dire straits” (see last week’s update), is largely about embracing our identity. If we embrace it, then we will grow in the identity God gave us. The more we embrace our identity, the harder it will be for witchcraft to infiltrate. We can keep that spirit of witchcraft “broken and under our feet.”
So, what is our identity? Who are we? We are warriors or mighty ones (Joel 3:9). We have the Lion of Judah inside of us. No matter what may come our way, we are more than conquerors (Rom. 8:37). We must joyfully embrace these truths. Accept and receive them. To merely hope they are so isn’t enough—they are so. I am a warrior! I am more than a conqueror in all things!
3. Declarations are actually seeds for great harvest. Yesterday, the Lord showed us it isn’t enough to just “know” or recognize our identity—we need to embrace it. The best way to embrace it is by making declarations of who we are. Whenever we make a declaration, God and the angels hear it, the devil and demons hear it, and our own spirit hears it. It’s the same as sowing seeds. These declarations are seeds. Seeds grow and bring a harvest.
I felt the Lord prompt us to daily sow these identity seeds, and then see the harvest it brings by the Feast of Tabernacles (Oct. 10–16).
Daily declarations are one way to ensure the soil of our heart remains good. Looking at Matthew 13, we see the benefits of good “heart soil,” as follows:
The birds of the air won’t be able to steal the seed.
The seed won’t just quickly spring up and wither, because consistent declaration will break any stony soil.
Declarations will help keep in check the weeds of distraction and worry.
So I’m going to make it a point to daily declare things like:
I am a warrior.
I am more than a conqueror in all things.
I am chosen and highly favored.
I am beloved.
I am expecting a “harvest” at Tabernacles!
Thanks for praying,
Ron and Teddy Sawka
