http://kutamaphc.weebly.com/day-3-mafikeng-25-april-12.html  “Witchcraft” by Rev Samuel Mametsa, 26 April 2012, Wednesday Evening.

The theme of this crusade is “26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”” Matt 19:26, NKJV.


Yes, with men it is impossible but with God it is possible. God is assuring you tonight that even if you have a very serious problem in your life; believe it that it is possible. I don’t care which sickness you have, HIV / AIDS included. Jesus Christ died for all the sicknesses and diseases on the cross. In any event, all sicknesses and diseases are killer diseases, not only HIV / AIDS. Even a headache can kill you.


In our church we had 3 people who were HIV positive. I asked them “Do you regard HIV/AIDS as a killer disease?” They said “The doctor says I am going to die.” I am telling “You are going to live. Who do you believe?” They said “We will take your word for you are a man of God”. They said “We believe you.” and we delivered them. I told them “You are no longer HIV positive”. I told them “Go to the doctor and check your status” and the doctor said “You are HIV negative”. They went to three doctors and were told they were HIV negative. Then I finally said to them “Go back to the doctor who told you, you are going to die.”  When that doctor tested the person he was very surprised and even sent the patient to come back the following day. The doctor even called his partner to come and help him. At the end the doctors realised that HIV/AIDS can be healed. Let me tell you this, Jesus Christ healed HIV/AIDS. He regards all diseases as diseases. Don’t live your life with a burden because somebody said you are  HIV positive. Jesus Christ already died for all these sicknesses and diseases. It is left up to you as to what to believe.


Whilst delivering one of the members in our church who was HIV/AIDS positive, the demon confessed that the witches had injected her with the virus at night. The other one was a 10 year old girl who had never slept with any man in her life. Where did she get that HIV?


Witches and wizards today can infect with you HIV/AIDS so that when you go to the doctor, the doctor will detect HIV/AIDS. They want you to be demoralized. So it is not all the people who are HIV/AIDS positive because of sexual contact, for some it is through spiritual infection by demons.


I want to show you where witchcraft is coming from: Let’s read from:


Scripture reading: 1 Kings 21:1 – 21  “And it came to pass after these things that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard which was in Jezreel, next to the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. 2 So Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; and for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money.” 3 But Naboth said to Ahab, “The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!” 4 So Ahab went into his house sullen and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him; for he had said, “I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers.” And he lay down on his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no food. 5 But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said to him, “Why is your spirit so sullen that you eat no food?” 6 He said to her, “Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite, and said to him, ‘Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it pleases you, I will give you another vineyard for it.’ And he answered, ‘I will not give you my vineyard.'” 7 Then Jezebel his wife said to him, “You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” 8 And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. 9 She wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; 10 and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, You have blasphemed God and the king. Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die. 11 So the men of his city, the elders and nobles who were inhabitants of his city, did as Jezebel had sent to them, as it was written in the letters which she had sent to them. 12 They proclaimed a fast, and seated Naboth with high honor among the people. 13 And two men, scoundrels, came in and sat before him; and the scoundrels witnessed against him, against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, “Naboth has blasphemed God and the king!” Then they took him outside the city and stoned him with stones, so that he died. 14 Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, “Naboth has been stoned and is dead.” 15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, “Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead.” 16 So it was, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab got up and went down to take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. The Lord Condemns Ahab 17 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 18 “Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who lives in Samaria. There he is, in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone down to take possession of it. 19 You shall speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Have you murdered and also taken possession?”‘ And you shall speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord:”In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs shall lick your blood, even yours.”‘””  1 Kings 21:1-21, NKJV.


Ahab was the first king of Israel and was chosen by God, He was faithful to God. The problem with Ahab is that he married the wrong wife. He was serving God well, and whilst moving around the devil blinded him and he saw a woman by the name of Jezebel.


Man fall very easily as their eyes cheat them. Ahab saw a very beautiful woman, beautiful body, and beautiful curves. When she was walking the birds would salute her. The bible classifies her as very beautiful. When she would walk, the figure and the beautiful body would move smoothly and when Ahab looked at her, he fell for her.


King Ahab looked at Jezebel with the eyes of kingship. The devil came and said to him “She is beautiful, look at the curves, the figure, she is right for you. Speak to her. She will make a beautiful queen.” Sometimes our eyes can blind us. They will get you in trouble. King Ahab listened to the devil and spoke to Jezebel. He told her “I am a king; you can come ad stay with me.”


Jezebel was sent by the devil to come and attract King Ahab because they wanted to destroy the kingdom of God. Jezebel is the daughter of Baal. All witchcraft in the planet comes from Baal. Jezebel was the aunt in that place. She was beautiful. She is the mother of witches and prostitutes. If you are a prostitute, your mother is Jezebel. They are beautiful and they can make themselves so beautiful that a man cannot resist.


Yesterday I told you about a man leaving his beautiful big house to stay in a shack. This is after he has seen Jezebel. The man is blinded by her beauty.


Jezebel agreed to the proposal by King Ahab and King Ahab fell into the trap. Finally he married a witch. Jezebel then started to murder all the man of God in Israel. She killed the prophets of God. The only man left was Elijah who was also hiding so that he would not be killed.


When the time came the spirit of Jezebel came very strongly on King Ahab and as he had already slept with her, entering into a blood covenant and soul tie, she could operate through him. She then sent King Ahab to kill the prophets of God. Now God was being shot by His own gun.


The bible says after this, when King Ahab was moving around one day, with the spirit of Jezebel, the spirit of jealousy, he saw Naboth and told him “I want your vineyard.” Naboth was surprised and said “Oh king you have many vineyards, why do you want this? This is the only one I have, my inheritance.”


King Ahab was very furious and when he went home he even refused to eat his food. Jezebel asked the husband what the matter was, he explained and she said to him, “Don’t worry, you have married a beautiful wife. I will make sure that you get the vineyard.”


After this, using her tricks, Jezebel used the writing pad of the king and the authority stamp of the king to create false evidence, and false witnesses so that the lying witnesses should testify lies against Naboth until they killed him. The spirit of jealousy is the root of witchcraft.


After Naboth was stoned and killed the message was sent to Jezebel and she happily went to her husband the King. I guess she even kissed him and said “My love, stand up, eat and be happy.” He refused and said, “I can’t, I am being undermined by Naboth”. She says “Sweetheart, don’t worry Naboth is no more” King Ahab must have been surprised. He stood up ate the food and went to Naboth’s vineyard, moving around, boasting and moving around the vineyard. The angel of the Lord went to Elijah and sent him to King Ahab “Go and tell him and his wife, they have killed Naboth, and that where the blood of Naboth was spilled and eaten by the dogs, the same will happen to you.”


You can do things and think that God doesn’t see you. When Elijah came King Ahab said to him “Who do you think you are? Have you forgotten I killed 70 men of God? I can also kill you now.” The spirit of jealousy, of Jezebel doesn’t care; it steals, kills and does whatever it likes. The spirit of the Lord says to Elijah “Tell him, where the blood of Naboth was spilled, the same will happen to you”.


After this Elijah ran to the mountain to hide.


Witchcraft comes from jealousy. You find somebody with everything but who still wants what somebody has. He wants to own everything. These are the witches. When they bewitch they think they will get your things but they don’t get even a cent of your money. This is because the devil blinds them. They are poor. They are the poorest of the poorest but they continue to bewitch people. They are like a snake which bites you and leaves you like that. What they want is to see you dead. They can’t even go to the bank and get your money, all they boast about is “She is dead.” When a lion kills you, it will eat you and if you can ask that lion “Why did you kill this person?” he will say “I was hungry that is why I ate her”. The witches just want to kill you with no reason.


If there is a witch here, that person must repent. The problem is that some don’t know they are witches. They are like somebody who is insane, that person doesn’t believe he or she is insane. If you go to that person and tell him or her “You are insane”, he or she will kill you.


The bible says we need not be like Jezebel. A lot of families are in disarray because they have married wrong woman. What I call the wrong rib. A lot of men are marrying the wrong women.


In Genesis 2:18 the bible says it is not good for a man to stay alone.  Not a woman. It is not good for a man to stay alone.  In other words if you are a man staying alone, you are contravening the law of God. In other words, a man must not stay alone. “18 And the Lord God said, “”It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”” Gen 2:18, NKJV. The bible says let’s make him a helper suitable for him not an ordinary woman, not the woman you see with your eyes. A suitable woman who will click with that man, who will respect that man. Look where God got that woman, in verse 24, He put the man to sleep and took one rib, only one rib and created a woman for him. Which means God believes in one rib, one woman, one man. If a man has two wives, where does the other rib come from? If the man has five wives, where do the other ribs come from? In other words you took somebody’s rib and that rib will afflict you, make you suffer as it is not your rib.


Many families are in trouble because of marrying the wrong ribs. After God created the woman He took the woman to Adam who said, “This is flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone.” That is why he loved his wife.


I become afraid when I see a woman beating his wife. Why is this man beating himself up? If you find a man beating his wife, he doesn’t understand where a woman comes from. Try beating yourself. It is painful. When God took out your rib and created a rib for you, it is part of your flesh. Why then should you beat yourself? These are fools.


I respect white men, they understand marriage, if the husband can go home and find the wife crying, he will join her and cry with her but if the black man can find his wife crying he will say “You are spoiled, why are you crying?” If you really know what a wife is, you won’t beat her.


God started to have a problem with King Ahab because of a wrong marriage. Because of that marriage, God and King Ahab became enemies. Just because of the woman.


If you are a man and you want to marry, ask God where is my wife?


One young man in our church said to me “Pastor, I am grown up and I want to get married. I have built a house and have bought a car.” I asked him “Who do you want to marry?”I have seen another sister that I would like to marry.” I said “Oh, with your own eyes?” He said “Yes,” I said “That is not your wife, I am not convinced. I was expecting you to tell me I am from fasting and God has shown me my wife. Not your eyes, your eyes can cheat you. Your eyes cannot see the woman in America or Zimbabwe. You want me to bless you and afterwards when you go to America you say no I made a mistake, that one was not my wife. I have now seen the right woman.”


I told him, “Go and fast twenty one days”. A woman is very expensive, you can’t get a woman with a one day fast. Nowadays people meet in one day, “I want to marry you” “Yes, even me I want to marry you.” That is a dangerous woman. To see you today and want to marry you same day? Just know that she was breastfed by Jezebel.


That boy went to the 21 days fasting and on the 20th day God showed him a lady in port Elizabeth working in the provincial hospital. He had never been there, could not even speak Xhosa. He did not know her name but God showed him the face. I told him, “That is your wife.” He said, “How will I do it. I told him go, God will make a plan for you.”


He took a flight on a Friday to Port Elizabeth and he phoned “I am at the gate; God did not give me a name. I said, go inside.” He went in and told the people at the reception “There is a patient I don’t know her name but if I can see her face, I will recognise her.” They told him to go into the female ward to check.


Whilst walking in the passage, the man met that woman, when she saw him, she collapsed. The man was frightened. The security arrested him, thinking he had shot the woman but when the lady came to, she stopped the security and told them “I was scared, last night I dreamt this man, wearing the same jeans, same t-shirt, same dimmers, and a voice said, ‘This is your husband’.” In the morning, she had told her friends about the dream.


They asked the man “Where do you come from?” He told them “From Venda, I am coming to look for my wife, I was praying and fasting 21 days, that is why I am here today, I was not aware God was preparing the woman last night.” This is a divine marriage, the friends of the lady says, “Is that why you refused to be married four times?” She said, “Yes, it is because I was praying for the right partner.” That kind of partner will love you and take care of you.


Back to our topic of Jezebel. Jezebel destroyed the kingship of King Ahab and King Ahab ended up fighting with God.


The spirit of witchcraft is the one sending young people to the taverns. They are drinking liquor like liquor is going out of fashion. That is why you find a young person holding a beer bottle; he doesn’t even read what is written on the bottle. When was e.g. Castle Lager first brewed? 1845. Imagine a young man holding beer as old as his great-great grandfather? That beer will hit you hard. That beer was brewed a long time ago, even before you were in your mother’s womb. Are you not ashamed it’s like you are holding your own grandmother in your hand. This very same bottle of beer slapped your great grandfather, then your grandfather, then you father now it is you. It will hit you hard. That same bottle will even send you to go and rape. This is the spirit of Jezebel.


We spoke about the fact that ancestral spirits will affect you and the coming generation if they are not dealt with. When we talk about ancestral worship we are talking about generational curses. If say your grandfather was killed by cancer, it means even you and your children will be killed by cancer. That is why you need to cut off that thing


Ancestral worship allows them to track you through the medicine that they put inside of you but Jesus Christ is here tonight. What is impossible with men is possible with Him.
