In 1987 I was ministering in a Church in Roanoke, Texas preaching on the difference between prophets vs. psychics. At that time psychics seem to be everywhere. You couldn’t watch television without a commercial popping up advertisement for 1-900-psychic. Back then this type of telephone number was setup where you could call a 900 number like an 800 number the only difference was that the 900 number would charge your phone bill a fee for the party you were calling. The psychics advertised their telephone number 1-900-psychic and for a fee in the amount based on a per-minute fee you could get a reading and the charge would be made to your phone bill.
At the same time all this was going on our Lord was calling me to come against the psychics; so I started training up people who wanted to follow the vision that God had given me. His Word to me was; “How long must I endure the silence of my prophets?” From that one word an army of people began gathering to be equipped to come against the psychics. We did not physically attack them or slander them we only made people aware of what the Holy Bible said about seeking a psychic for guidance.
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead, For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the Lord your God has not appointed such for you. “The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear,
Everyone who goes to psychic or anyone who dabbles with these types of spirits sin against God and bring curses upon themselves. For many years afterward I discovered hundreds of Christians had at some point and time had gone to a palm read, tarot card reader, or one of these types of spiritist. It seemed that each Christian I ministered too had received at least one curse from these practitioners of divination. The battle was real and now since has faded for the time; however, I know there are still many people who are struggling to get free and cannot because of the curse they knowingly or unknowingly purchased. It does not matter how long ago you sought out a psychic or the like, or whether you did it just for fun and did not believe in it you still bought the curse.
If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it a great thing if we reap your material things? If others are partakers of this right over you, are we not even more?
Nevertheless we have not used this right, but endure all things lest we hinder the gospel of Christ. Do you not know that those who minister the holy things eat of the things of the temple, and those who serve at the altar partake of the offerings of the altar? Even so the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should live from the gospel.
1 Corinthians 9:11-14
May I point out that these words are not mine but come directly from the written word of God found in the Holy Bible; so please do not be angry with me. When our Lord brought this passage to me He was telling me that if you give to one who practices in the works of a psychic you are purchasing a curse that will manifest in your life. On the other hand if you seek a prophet of God for a word you are scripturally obtaining the gift of God, His Word for YOU! Only His Word can remove the curse that has been spoken over those who have played in the dark side. Therefore, He has placed in the Church prophets to reverse the curse and bring blessings to the body of Christ that His people may prosper. (Ref. 1 Corinthians 12:28)
“Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”
2 Chronicles 20:20c
It is for that very reason that anytime I receive a blessing or breakthrough from a minister I am faithful to make sure I give them an offering. In fact just two years ago my wife and I drove about 200+ miles to a church we had never been to before. We had received a notice they were coming against rheumatoid arthritis and my wife suffered greatly with this horrible dieses so we packed up our luggage and took off for Rusk, Texas. It had to be the Holy Spirit leading us for my Debbie was totally healed of rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. She received a double portion of healing. Now mind you I came prepared not just with faith but an offering too. For I know the power of this passage from 1 Corinthians 9:11-14. Not only did I come with my offering in hand and my heart full of faith I continue to send and offering to the Church in Rusk, Texas on the anniversary of my Debbie’s healing each and every year thereafter. I do this because I do not want her to lose her healing. I tell you this is a message we are leaving out which would really help people keep their healing, just read the scripture again, it’s the truth.
People do not think about it but when they place their hard earned money in the hands of a psychic they are buying a curse. Yes, a curse they have just purchased a curse that will not leave them until they find the one who can reverse the curse and please for you sake do not forget your offering. I know a lot of people get angry when ministers who talk about money but you need to know that Christ our Lord and Savior spoke of money often because it has a spiritual application. He also used it in many of His analogies that are found in His Holy Scriptures. The fact is if you pay for pornographic material you are purchasing a curse. If you sow your hard earned money into drugs you are buying a curse and the list goes on. Do not fool yourself by thinking that you should receive ministry from God’s ministers for free. Because you are only foolishly robbing yourself if you think you will receive a blessing for free. In fact there is one big lie of the devil that is being repeated over and over by many in the body of Christ and that phrase is “freely give, freely receive”. They who use this verse in an attempt to condemn God’s ministers are only condemning themselves. They take this misused phrase from Matthew chapter ten.
And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts,nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food.
“Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out.And when you go into a household, greet it.If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city!
Now, back to the topic of those who have received a psychic or anyone practicing these types of sorcery, we know they are against the Kingdom of God. After many of the services I held over the years various people with special needs would come to me for a word and prayer. Many times our Lord would show me that they had received a curse. Not from unforgiveness or generational curses but something they had done years ago just for fun.
It was at this little church in Roanoke, Texas that the Holy Spirit began teaching me how to reverse the curse that had been put upon these people by those who operate in these methods of witchcraft. He is still teaching me how these spirits work to destroy their victims as well as blind them from living in God’s blessings. After delivering His Word on the subject that beautiful spring Sunday morning in April of 1987 I offered to prophesy and pray over anyone who needed Jesus to deliver them of the curse of the psychic. One man in particular comes to mind that was basically dragged into Church that Sunday by his wife. He was a tall man of about 40 years old. He had long reseeding hair that was graying wearing blue jeans and a long sleeve stripped button up shirt. Whispering the man explained that for many years he had this annoying voice in his head that would not stop. I asked him what the voice was saying but he indicated that he did not understand but that the tone of the voice was full of hatred. He was a bit shaky and scared I had him close his eyes and raise his arms.
As I prophesied over him the Lord showed me that he had his palm read. So I asked him when was it that he had his palm read. Quickly the man replied that he never had his palm read. Somewhat confused I said, “Well, let me pray again;” so as I started praying our Lord said; “Ask him when and where he had his palm read”. Which I did ask the man again, but the man insisted that he had never been to a palm reader. So I prayed a third time and our Lord said, “Ask him where he was stationed during the war.” I did not have any way of knowing that this man had ever been in the service except what the Lord had just revealed. Stepping out on faith I asked him where he was stationed during the Vietnam War and he replied, “Hawaii.”
Suddenly, his countenance changed and everything seemed to be exposed. He proceeded to tell the group standing around listening that it was there that he and a few of his servicemen went to palm reader but it was just for fun. Then another revelation came to him that it was about that same time that he began to hear that awful voice that had been with him all these years. He said he thought it was the war that brought the voice into his head but he had not seen any warfare in the service for he remained State side during the war. I assured the man that it was the spell cast on him by the palm reader that was plaguing him. I asked the man if he believed Jesus could take this curse from him without hesitation he replied that he had no doubt that Jesus could reverse the curse. We prayed together and I told him we would now do as our Lord instructed and he would be free from the nagging voice today.
I asked the man to sit down and hold his hands up with his palms toward me and to close his eyes. With a small bottle of anointing oil I waited for instruction expecting our Lord to tell me to anoint his palms but that was not the plan. Jesus told me to watch for the “hole of emptiness” which was a dark spot and that I was to quickly touch it with the oil. Then the hole appeared in the man’s palm but Jesus said, “WAIT”. I waited and then the hole went to his forehead and that is when Jesus very sternly and quickly said, “NOW”. I barely touched the man’s forehead with one finger that I had placed the anointing oil on. Even though I barely touched him the man’s head violently snapped back; this was not a natural thing that had happened. The man was delivered and months later the pastor of that Church group confirmed that the man gave testimony of his deliverance to the congregation and had become a faithful member of the Church.
Operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit is not a how-to manual or in a formula for getting positive results; the true effect only comes by praying, hearing and obeying. “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (Ref. James 5:16b) To be a righteous man/woman is to do whatever God tells you to do and that will always work for you.
