According to an event posted on Facebook, nearly 1,400 people have committed to attend a rally in New York City to put a hex on the recent Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
What is perhaps equally disturbing another 13,000 have stated they are interested in the event being sponsored by an occult book store in New York city. The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 20, 2018 in Brooklyn.
According to Fox News media personality Tucker Carlson, the event “will include an optional $10 donation” with part of the proceeds going to “Planned Parenthood, to ‘fund their own human sacrifice rituals.'”
Though the event will focus on Brett Kavanaugh, he won’t be the only target as it will also focus on rapists and the patriarchy.
But equally concerning is the motivation behind the hexes, the Facebook event page goes on to say that the people attending should bring their rage:
“He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and and all of the axes you’ve got to grind.”
The event’s popularity should not surprise us as a recent article on Quartzy speaks of witchcraft’s growing popularity in the US. Based on surveys conducted by Connecticut’s Trinity College (TC) and Pew Research, the article noted:
- According to TC, the number of people who identify as Wicca increased form 8,000 in 1990 to 340,000 in 2008.
- In a survey conducted in 2014, Pew Research stated that .4% of people in the US identify as Wicca or pagans. Based on a current population of 327 million, this would put the number at about 1.3 million people.
One person noted on Twitter, that there are nearly as many American practicing Wicca as there are attending the Presbyterian Church, that has a membership of around 1.4 million.
Since February this year, witches have also been regularly casting hexes on US President Donald Trump. According to an article in the Daily Mail, they have been gathering at midnight on selected dates.
So how should Christians and intercessors respond?
First, it is critical that we understand our position in Christ. When Christ sent out his disciples He gave them authority over the demonic:
And He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases. (Luke 9:1 NASV)
And secondly the Apostle Paul writes:
13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”— (Galatians 3:13 NASV)
Paul states because the Romans crucified Christ on the cross, the Lord broke all the curses associated with the law. I believe this breaks all curses and even hexes coming from others.
In the Old Testament, the bodies of people who committed murder were hung on a tree. This allowed birds to eat away at the body and this desecration resulted in the person being considered accursed:
22 “If a man has committed a sin worthy of death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, 23 his corpse shall not hang all night on the tree, but you shall surely bury him on the same day (for he who is hanged is accursed of God), so that you do not defile your land which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 21:22, 23 NASV)
Because the Roman crucified Christ, the Lord was similarly displayed on a tree and Paul states because of this, Jesus broke all curses.
Though Christ broke all curses, are all curses broken? The answer is yes and no. Theologically the answer is yes, but practically it may be no.
Let me explain what I mean.
There is salvation for everyone through Christ’s death on the cross. Does this automatically mean all people are saved?
No. We need to share our faith and wrestle in prayer so that the Holy Spirit will remove the blindness (2 Corinthians 4:4) and allow people to accept Christ’s salvation.
Through Christ’s death on the cross there is also healing (by Christ’s stripes we are healed — Isaiah 53:5). Does this mean all people are automatically healed?
No. We need to pray and believe for healing.
In the same way, Christ broke all curses, and similarly we need to step out in prayer and take authority over these curses.
But as we do this we need to understand our identity in Christ and enforce this from our higher-ground position in the Kingdom of God.
We need to believe our authority over the demonic and then enforce the breaking of curses, promised in the Bible.
