“Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame.” – Nahum 3:4-5
I spent Tuesday through Friday up on the Pine Ridge Lakota Sioux indian reservation in South Dakota on a missionary trip to fix up an old church. I came with two friends who had never travelled on any missionary journeys before and here we were going to one of the biggest witchcraft areas of the USA.
Spiritual warfare is VERY REAL and once we got close to the Indian reservation, the joyous optimistic mood in our car immediately changed to discouragement, depression, bickering and arguing, and confusion. The demonic activity at this reservation FAR SURPASSES the Navajo and Hopi reservations I’ve spent previous missionary trips at. My travel companions are relatively new inexperienced christians and although both are eager and enthusiastic they both got sifted like wheat by the devils who control this powerful principality. Anger, accusations, bickering, arguing, extreme anxiety, ego, pride, all these unrighteous personality traits came out of nowhere and materialized in words spoken by my travel companions during the first 36 hours which is a telltale sign of demonic thought influences. I pointed out the psychic warfare being perpetrated on my travel companions and they both realized their thoughts and emotions were being hijacked and overtly influenced by devils.
The picture of a burning building is St Francis Church, a nearby church that was arsoned prior to us visiting. Rumors were that devil worshipping witches and wizards were responsible….Pine Ridge is literally marinating in evil black magic withcraft….you could feel it. Our native christian brothers and sisters told me numerous stories of extreme witchcraft, rampant crystal meth addiction, generational curses, rampant suicide rate, and shocking breakdown of the family unit. I grew up with a Lakota Sioux indian family so I had a rough idea what I was in for in advance but the true reality of how bad the Indian witchcraft was readily apparent that first 24hours. I even had gangs of demons trying to get at me past my spiritual hedge of protection in my dreams that first night even though I slept in the church on a pew. I had to rebuke and fight back against demons in my dreams WOW.
Next day was long day of installing hardwood floor in the old church and next night I gave a well attended Bible study on how to fight back against witchcraft and how to break curses and demonic strongholds with practical prayer strategies and exercising the authority given to us as royal heirs of God’s kingdom. I went way over time allotted for Bible study BUT nobody left or wanted me to wrap it up…it was a very timely subject that was well received….our precious native brothers and sisters were hungry to learn how to fight back against the demonic psychic warfare they’ve endured for far too long.
Thursday was a LONG 12 hour day grinding out the rest of instilling that hardwood floor. I enjoyed working under Kevin and his son Tim from Delta, Colorado who supervised the construction work. But it was a LOT of work…Friday morning we left back to Colorado after breakfast.
I enjoyed Pastor Poff and his wife’s hospitality and sincere christian walk and leadership. Their stories were eye opening about how powerful the wizards and witches on the Rez have gotten….christians need to wake up to how pervasive and extensive psychic spiritual warfare really is in our country…at the homeless camps, in our cities, and on the Indian reservations….pray that christians wake up and start fighting back!
