In two very contrasting news stories this weekend, witches who believe they have already cast a "hex" or "curse" on President Trump, will now publicly convene on October 20 to cast a "curse" on Brett Kavanaugh.

In contrast, Pastor Andrew Brunson, just released from a Turkish prison, knelt beside President Trump and along with his wife, laid hands on the president and prayed for God's wisdom and strength for him.

Be informed.

A large group of witches will be convening in Brooklyn this coming Saturday, October 20, to "place a curse on Brett Kavanaugh and upon all rapists and the patriarchy which emboldens and rewards and protects them."

Dakota Bracciale, a "queer, non-binary witch," who is leading the curse ritual, told the Huffington Post that "Witches use hexes as a radical act of resistance against oppressors."

She says, "Witchcraft has been used throughout history as a tool and ally for people on the fringe of society who will not really ever get real justice through the powers that be" so the witches "have to exact their own justice."

"Witchcraft," she says, "can offer the means of 'exacting justice that would otherwise be denied'."

She says hexes or curses are "not something you do lightly, but it is something you have in your arsenal or toolbox."

Well, she's right about not taking this event lightly. They are selling tickets to the event and are sold out---all 1,000 tickets are gone. To accommodate more people, the ritual will also be streamed live online from their Brooklyn, New York location.

Their website explains that 50% of the proceeds from the event will go to charity, with 25% of all proceeds going to Planned Parenthood.

Some of this same group convened at midnight on February 24, 2017 to use black magic to subjugate President Trump. In a lengthy incantation, calling on spirits and "demons of the infernal realms" to bind Trump so that he "may utterly fail."

They promised to continue the rituals until President Trump has been removed from office.

Bracciale says the difference between a "hex" and a "binding spell" is that a "spell" prevents someone from doing something and limits his ability to act." "A hex," she explains, "is a more direct attack that engages its target in a supernatural fistfight."

She says, "Even if you don't believe in the magic of will feel a sense of fellowship and camaraderie---we're not leaving you alone with the monsters."

Any contest between good and evil was settled at the cross, when Christ gave His life for our sin. Had he remained in the grave as all other religious leaders have, the contest may have continued, but it is finished.

Christ overcame Satan crushing him and assuring he will ultimately be cast into the Lake of Fire.

Satan's power is only in his ability to deceive.

Can a Christian be cursed or hexed?

Question: "Can a Christian be cursed? Will God allow a curse on a believer?"

The Bible tells us that “like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest” (Proverbs 26:2b). This means that foolish curses have no effect. God does not allow His children to be cursed. God is sovereign. No one has the power to curse one whom God has decided to bless. God is the only One able to pronounce judgment.
“Spells” in the Bible are always described negatively. Deuteronomy 18:10-11 numbers those who cast spells with those who commit other acts “detestable to the LORD” such as child sacrifice, witchcraft, sorcery, divination, or necromancy (consulting with the dead). Micah 5:12 says that God will destroy witchcraft and those who cast spells. Revelation 18 describes spells as part of the deception that will be used by the antichrist and his “great city of Babylon” (v. 21-24). Though the end-times deception will be so great that even the elect would be deceived if God did not protect us (Matthew 24:24), God will utterly destroy Satan, the antichrist, and all who follow them (Revelation chapters 19-20).
The Christian has been born again as a new person in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), and we are in the constant presence of the Holy Spirit who lives within us and under whose protection we exist (Romans 8:11). We do not need to worry about anyone casting any sort of pagan spell on us. Voodoo, witchcraft, hexes, and curses have no power over us because they come from Satan, and we know that “the one who is in you [Christ] is greater than the one [Satan] who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). God has overcome him, and we have been freed to worship God without fear (John 8:36). “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? ” (Psalm 27:1).

A contrasting picture.

A Turkish court has released American Pastor Andrew Brunson after two years of confinement. His return home over the weekend has been a profound moment for evangelical Christians and others who have prayed earnestly for his deliverance and release.

President Trump has been true to his promises to the evangelical community---formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, installing hundreds of conservative jurists on federal courts, two originalists on the Supreme Court---and more. In fact, according to the records, he has done more for the evangelical community than any other president in modern history.

This was another kept promise. The Trump administration put extreme pressure on the Turkish government to release the pastor, without paying any kind of ransom. In contrast, President Obama gave the Iranian government over $1 billion dollars to release a couple of prisoners during his administration.

In a touching moment in the White House on Saturday, Brunson knelt and prayed for the president, asking God to give him wisdom to lead this country and the strength to fulfill his plans for governing it.

Brunson's wife, Norine, joined him in the laying on hands and praying for the president.

Take this with you today:

"Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world" (I John 4:4).
"No weapon formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me, declares the Lord" (Is. 54:17).
"Submit yourself to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (James 4:7).

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Steadfast. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.
