Casting Spells on Donald Trump and the Christian Response
Victoria Gray | February 24, 2017 | 12:22pm
At mid-night tonight, and for every waning crescent moon here after, groups of witches and warlocks are gathering around the country to cast spells on Donald Trump, his family, and his supporters. Social media has picked up the story and is encouraging ordinary folks to join these witches in their spell casting from the comfort of their home. (see [The Daily Mail],[New York Daily News], [Elle Magazine]) All you need are a few household items: feather, water, tarot card, and an orange candle - just to name a few. To the secular, it all seems pretty harmless, maybe even silly - which is why we at Arise Ministry feel an obligation to speak out in faith and share why this game of spell casting is dangerous, deadly, and may cost you your soul. Here's what you need to know:
1. Jesus came to save you from the power of satan & his spells
Participating in this spell-casting is contrary to Christianity in every way. Take a minute to review what you learned in Sunday school: Jesus Christ came to die upon a cross to save humanity and declare a final victory over Satan. But when our parents first sinned, the world was inundated with sin, death, demons, pain, evil, spells, curses and destruction. This is all really bad - and for many generations mankind longed for redemption. All hope would seem lost, except God, never tiring in His great love for us, predestined Jesus Christ to come to earth as Savior and Redeemer. Christ's saving work on the cross merited for us the grace for our sins to be forgiven and the gates of Heaven to be opened. By His passion, death, and resurrection, Christ broke the power of the evil one and took back authority over this world.
2. By Casting This Spell, You are Reversing Christ's Saving Work in Your Own Life
Even though Jesus offers us salvation, we have to accept it by our own free will. And wishing for Heaven, or saying "but I believe in a merciful God" unfortunately doesn't get you into Heaven. To receive Christ's gift of salvation, we must repent of our sins and conform our lives to God's law as a response to our faith in Jesus Christ. One of God's bigger laws is called "The Ten Commandments", the first commandment is this: "I am the Lord your God, you shall have no other Gods besides me."
When we pray to God, we obey this commandment by directing our worship to God.
When we cast a spell we direct our worship to Satan and his Demons.
Therefore, spell casting is a direct violation of God's law and the first commandment. For Catholics, this is in the "grave sin" category - which, if you do so knowingly and willingly puts you in the "mortal sin" category. To commit mortal sin is to cut yourself off entirely from the grace of God - you can not be reunited to God (nor could your soul enter Heaven upon your death) without repentance and returning to Christ in faith. In short, casting this spell cuts you off from the grace of God. Don't do that.
3. By participating, You are entering Satan's Playground and opening yourself up to demonic attack
The spell begins with encouraging you to call upon "spirits of water, earth, fire, air, Heavenly hosts, Demons of the infernal realms and spirits of the ancestors". In effect, you are basically calling directly upon Satan and he doesn't need to be asked twice to have permission to harass you. And he will. (in case you were wondering)
Here are the Facts:
- There is only one spirit that Christians call upon: The Holy Spirit. Any other Spirit we call upon is NOT Godly and NEVER good, regardless of what we are asking the spirit to do.
- "Spirits of water, earth, fire and air" are also known as the principalities. And since you're not calling on the Holy Spirit himself, you're calling on demonic principalities. You are directly calling upon the highest order of demon. Damn. Pun intended.
- They actually ask you to call upon the "demons of the infernal realms" themselves. Well, in doing so, you will have just invited all of Hell into your home. That's a lot of demons - and when you come to your senses, that is a LOT to spiritually clean up later.
- Lastly, the spell has you practice consulting with the dead by calling upon the "spirits of the ancestors". This is expressly forbidden to both Christians and Jews.
Regardless of your political beliefs, the Scriptures are clear, "Let no one be found among you who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults with the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord" (Deuteronomy 18:10-12).
So what happens when you start this prayer? You basically open up your life and soul to demonic oppression, obsession and yea, potentially possession. Yes, that's right - possession. This spell is a doorway to the most horrific affliction that can happen to a person's soul.
4. Christians Must Pray that Jesus Break the Curses Spoken by this Spell
One of the subjects covered in Holy Spirit 101 is the power of deliverance prayer. Satan and demons DO exist and often wreck havoc in our lives. Just as we can pray for blessing for others, we can also curse others. When these spells are cast, hundreds of thousands of curses are going to be cast over many innocent persons - some Christians and some not. We have a moral obligation to use the authority and power given to us through our Baptism to set free, in the name of Jesus, all those who will be negatively affected by this spell.

Join the Battle and Pray with Us
Anytime today, and especially at mid-night tonight, please join believers around the world in prayer - both to protect your families, and that God may have mercy on the ignorant who are participating in this terrible event.
I ask your mercy and forgiveness of my sins - especially any hatred towards the political leaders that you have permitted to be in office.
:: take a brief moment, and repent of any sins you may have committed since your last confession ::
Lord, I forgive those who have injured me and I ask your forgiveness for those I have injured. I forgive the witches and warlocks who are casting this evil spell upon so many people of our nation and I forgive them for the harm it may cause to many innocent souls.
:: take a brief moment and ask the Lord if there is anyone else you feel called to forgive. Forgive them before proceeding ::
In the name of Jesus, I renounce all curses and evil assignments sent to myself, my family, my community, my country and my President. In the name of Jesus Christ, I break the power of the iron chains sent to bind so many, and Lord Jesus, I ask that you send your Holy Angels to remove them right now. Thank you, Lord.
Lord Jesus, I ask that you send your Holy Spirit to surround and protect your beloved Children, especially those this spell intends to harm. Lord, bless them and keep them safe - may no evil come to them at all. Instead, may Your Holy Victory be won, and Your name grow with greater fame. Thank you, Lord.
Lord Jesus, I ask that you bless those who are casting this spell and have promoted it - bless them with the graces of conversion, that they may repent and return to you. Thank you, Lord.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
All glory be to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. As it was in the Beginning, is now, and will be forever, Amen.
