Women of Vision Conference - 2004: Who Has Bewitched You? (Galations 3:1)
The subject of witchcraft is very broad in itself. There are different forms and facets of this subject - it is a real power which can come in the form of demonic and Satanic entities operating in and through real people with a view to destroy us.
But there is also the "spirit of witchcraft" operating through people speaking judgemental words to you, and people praying against you. In 1 Kings 19, Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, spoke judgment to the prophet, Elijah, and he ran for his life, because the spirit of witchcraft was invoked upon him through the words spoken to him.
We, as believers, will live a defeated life because of ignorance and complacency. Hosea 4:6 says my people perish for lack of knowledge. Knowledge is power and godly knowledge is exceeding power. What you fail to confront - you will condone. What you condone will control you, but God wants us to live in total liberty and freedom.
Witchcraft is a counterfeit spiritual authority, which has found a comfortable lodging place to infest an plague both the leadership and laity of the Church at large - from the pulpit to the pews. You see the kind of witchcraft found in the Church involves mind control, emotional manipulation, psychological coercion, etc. - all under the guise and pretense of a "God-told-me-to-do-it" syndrome that has led to chaos, division, deception and lies - again from the pulpit to the pews. Blunt, but true! The use of soulish power and hype is a form of witchcraft. To use fear and manipulation to get what you want is a form of witchcraft. This
spirit is operative in our homes, our marriages, our schools - even our churches.
Anyone who tries to control you through sex, money or guilt is operating in a form of witch-
craft. Anything that instills the fear of man in you is manipulation and control and therefore is a form of witchcraft. Witchcraft is not just sticking needles in a doll or spellcasting. It's a subtle spirit that operates in deception. Signs of the presence of this spirit can be found in 2 Kings 9:22 - there is no peace - your peace will leave you for no reason-discouragement comes for no reason - then confusion sets in for no apparent reason - then depression, which is an unshakeable dread, loss of vision and disorientation. When you start struggling to receive and believe God's word and promises, you start growing weary and you start doubting your ability to hear and know God's voice - then withdrawal starts to come in. It's an attack of witchcraft, but God wants to set you free. Our assignment at this conference is to enlighten you and equip you through the word of God, then through the power of God - facilitate healing, deliverance and restoration so you may be ushered into your destiny and purpose unhindered. According to Isaiah 10:28: "the yoke is destroyed by the anointing."
This conference is designed for people that are ready to go the the next dimension in God.
Our speakers are powerful women of God who carry a burden-removing, yoke-destroying, unction to set the captives free. It will truly be a three-day encounter with Jesus, come and join us, we promise you, your life will never be the same again. "It's not over, till God says it's over," and "your present situation is not your final destination." God has a plan for your life.
