Jesus Christ is Lord!
There has to be a housecleaning for most Christians. You cannot fool God, nor can you fool the devil. Don’t try! Each of them knows when you mean business.

The key word for most people today is: repent, stop fooling around and playing church, and being a little religious; and get desperate; make a decision!

The spirit of truth in you should tell you what’s true and what’s false. It should answer to the truth, and reject false. And you better have that alarm clock inside you really well warmed up, because you’re going to need it!

This is the most powerful teaching of Derek Prince I’ve ever heard! I pray it will open many eyes:

Some of the headlines:

‘So I’m going to deal with these successive things:

1  The domination of one person by another
2  Heresies: departures from the Christian faith
3  False religions


1  The domination of one person by another 

It is never the will of God for any human soul to be dominated by any other human soul!

It is never the will of God for parents to dominate their children, for a husband to dominate his wife, for a wife to dominate her husband, for a pastor to dominate his congregation, or for any other person in any situation to dominate another person.

Now listen, witchcraft is the attempt to control people, and make them do what you want, by a power other than the Holy Spirit

And if you have a power in your life that you can use it isn’t the Holy Spirit, because no one uses the Holy Spirit. He’s God.

Many, many people are still tied by a spiritual umbilical cord to their mother

In many cases, total deliverance does not come, until that umbilical cord in the spiritual realm is cut. Now, I’m not teaching disobedience; I believe the Bible teaches, honor thy father and thy mother that it may be well with you. But nevertheless, it is not the will of God for any one person to dominate any other person, to control them.
It’s remarkable that you find many times that a mother will know when her daughter is seeking the Lord, will start phoning and bringing pressure upon her. She may be eaten up with self-pity, and every time that family is going to move out in God the mother will phone, Come and help me, come and hold my hand, come and stand by me. Now, I want to warn you, don’t let anybody dominate your life! And if you’ve been in that situation where you’ve been dominated by a father or a mother, this afternoon before this meeting closes, exercise the authority given to you in the name of Jesus, and loose yourself from that dominion! And if you have hatred or unforgiveness in your heart as a result of that attempted domination, forgive the father or the mother or the person, whoever it may be, because you cannot loosen yourself from someone if you resent them or hate them. The very resentment and hatred itself constitute the bond which ties you to them.

Now it is not always a parent, it may be other cases.

Some of you have been influenced by spiritual ‘persons’ who tried to take you over

This happens very often with prayer groups. Some dominating, strong, spiritual lady will move in and just begin to exercise control over that prayer group.

Now listen, the Holy Spirit never causes a minister of the Gospel to dominate others!

If you come to the place where you’re more tied to that woman than you are to the Lord, where you hardly dare to take a decision without consulting the Lord [the minister, I guess], you are bound and not in a good way and not by the Spirit of the Lord!

There is a church where the biggest item in the expense is the long distance phone bill, because every time the pastor wants to make a decision he phones a certain lady in another state, and gets her to give him the mind of the Lord. And she flips the pages of the Bible, uses the name of Jesus, and comes out with a pronouncement, which is what runs that entire church! I could tell you some extraordinary and even ridiculous examples of this but I’m not going to do it. That church and its minister are bound, and the people that attend that church come under that bondage. And the woman behind it, in plain, simple language, is a witch, a religious witch, a full gospel witch, a charismatic witch, and all the more dangerous for that.


2  Heresies

These are departures from the Christian faith
Never let anybody start dictating to you about the kind of food that you’re to eat. Don’t make a religion out of it! Don’t let it become a spiritual law because that’s a deception.

The fact that a man has been trained in a seminary and has three kinds of degrees after his name should be a warning to you to suspect damnable heresies, not to believe what he says.

1 John 2:18-22

Again a warning about the last days, and deception and error, and a particular spirit of deception, the spirit of antichrist.

Let me say that anti-Christ means two things

The word anti means first of all: against, and secondly: in place of.
The spirit of antichrist has a double work. First of all, it’s against Jesus Christ, to get Him out of the church. Secondly, its design is to replace Him by the false christ.

Somebody told me the other day – who’s acquainted with the person – that the lady in Washington who’s the subject of a book, – and I’m not going to mention the name – speaks about ‘the Christ’. But you’d better check, because when she speaks about the Christ she means the false christ, and this is very prevalent.

The scripture indicates that millions and millions of people will shortly be deceived by the spirit of antichrist. You better be sure you aren’t going to be one of them. Now let’s read about it:

Little children, it is the last time and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists (a mark of the last time), whereby ye know that it is the last time. But ye have an unction (anointing) from the Holy One, and ye know all things (by the anointing)…

The spirit of truth in you should tell you what’s true and what’s false

It should answer to the truth, and reject false. And you better have that alarm clock inside you really well warmed up, because you’re going to need it!

… I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, (he’s not writing to unbelievers) but because ye know it and that no lie is of the truth…

What’s the truth? The word of God. Anything that conflicts with the Word of God is a lie.

… Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Notice, he does not deny God, but he denies the relationship within the godhead, the Father and Son. And basically, he denies that Jesus is the Son of God, and has come in the flesh.

The Bible says, wicked man shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived

They deceive because they are deceived! You know, it’s an interesting thing, they tell me that the lie detector test will not work on a psychopathic liar. In other words, a liar who’s abnormal. Because that person has no reaction from lying, see. They don’t even know they’re lying! And that is what happens when a person’s mind and personality is taken over by the spirit of deception. They aren’t even aware that they are deceiving! It’s deceiving and being deceived. All right, that’s the spirit of antichrist, the spirit of heresy, and seducing spirits. And they all center around the truth about Jesus.

Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life”.

If you have come under the influence of any teaching that in any way touches upon the person, the nature, or the work of the Lord Jesus Christ, you had better get clear. Loose your spirit, and clear your mind from these poisonous lies of the enemy, and come back to God in repentance! Bow at the foot of the cross, and ask Jesus to take you back!


3  False religions

Now we’re coming on to the third realm which is false religions, non-Christian religions

And let me lay down certain simple principles.

There are two sources of supernatural power:

One is God, the other is the devil. And any supernatural power that does not come from God does come from the devil. It’s that simple.
Now there is one way, and only way into the realm of God’s supernatural power, and that way is Jesus Christ.

John 10:9

Jesus said: “I am the door, by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved”.

I am the door. By implication, there is no other.

John 14:6

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me”.

There is no other way to God the Father but by Jesus Christ and Him crucified!

Ephesians 2:18

For through Him (Jesus Christ), we both (Jews and gentiles) have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

Notice, through Him (Jesus), and through Him alone… by how many spirits?

One spirit. There’s only one spirit that gives the human access to God the Father. It’s the Holy Spirit. And He operates only through the Lord Jesus Christ. If you come by any other door than Jesus, or if you come through any other spirit, no matter what that spirit may profess to thee, you do not have access to God; you have access to the realm of satan. Instead, of coming into the realm of light, you come into the realm of darkness.
But remember that satan is transformed as an angel of light, and his ministers are transformed as ministers of righteousness. And many, many times they’ll use beautiful, sweet, loving words and long psychological phrases, and even quote Scripture to get you into the realm of darkness under the guise of being angels of light! But if you do not come by Jesus Christ, crucified on the cross, and if you do not come by the Holy Spirit of God, you can get into the occult realm, you can get into the supernatural realm. I’ve been there, and I know what’s like, but you get into the wrong realm!

Now, I got in by Yoga

I was a practicing yogi before I found Jesus. And there was a time when I got out of the natural. But what I got into, even then, it scared me. I didn’t like it; I decided once was enough. But when I was confronted with the Gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit some years later, the great barrier between me and Christ was not my carnal sins; it was Yoga. And I could not break through that mental barrier! God had to do a miracle of deliverance.
I could not reach Him ’till that Yoga demon had lost its power over my mind. You can theorize, friend, but I was there. I know what it’s like. It’s one of a thousand different ways of being deceived into the territory of satan, and becoming enslaved!

I’m not preaching condemnation; I’m opening your eyes

First of all, if you do it [occult practices], you’re bringing it on your children.
Secondly, if your parents or grandparents or great-grandparents did it, you may still be suffering from their judgment. And you’ve got to learn how to get out from under that judgment. Thank God the curse is canceled in Christ. But you better know where the curse is, and in many cases you have to know where it came from.

You know, there are only going to be two religious groups in Christendom at the end of the age

Did you know that? One’s going to be the bride, and the other is going to be the harlot. The bride will be marked by the fact that those in the bride have remained true to their commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom. The harlot will consist of those who have been seduced by deceiving spirits from their loyalty to Jesus Christ, and they will be marked with all the features of Babylonian religion here described. You can read about them in the 17th and 18th chapters of the book of Revelation.

Every one of us is liable to be confronted by the decision:

“Do I want to be in the bride or do I want to be in the harlot?” I don’t believe there’ll be a third choice.

Divination, witchcraft, and sorcery

Many, many times I have encountered these spirits that have spoken to me, defied me, and challenged me, out of people. As a matter of fact, I have a kind of private war with witchcraft. Many times they’ll say to me, “I know you”. One said to me, “Why did you have to come?”

How many people have told me “I went to the fortune teller just for a joke”

You know what Dennis Bennett says? “It’s like counting the tiger’s teeth, just for a joke.” Whether you did it for a joke or not is irrelevant! You went to a servant of satan for help that you should receive only from God! In doing that you submitted yourself to satan. You made satan your god. That’s the truth.

Witchcraft operates primarily by spells, curses, and I would say, hypnosis

It brings people under control! I’ve met many real practicing witches, Quite a number. One woman told me, “I kill people by my curses”. It was a respectable middle class American housewife. I’ve met several young people just recently, girls that have told me they could put a hex on somebody, and make them do what they wanted.

Be careful what you wear around your neck or put around your wrist

Because you can put on a satanic yoke, if you put something that’s supposed to have power. How many people seek protection by a charm or a lucky penny [or a so-called emblem to wear all the time]?

Somebody told me about a girl who grew sick

And her mother took her to a faith healer, who gave the mother a little charm, and said, “Put this around your girl’s neck, and it will keep her well”. The mother did; the girl became well. But after some time the mother became illuminated and realized the awful thing she had done! They took the charm off, opened it up, and inside they read a little poem which said, “Satan, keep this girl’s body well ’till her soul burns in hell”. The devil doesn’t mind a little healing, provided it costs you your soul! He’ll gladly call off a minor demon in order to enslave you with a major one! I’ll tell you,

It’s the hardest thing in the world for somebody that’s served satan in this realm to get really free

It demands total repentance, no fooling around, no halfway commitment but a total renunciation of satan and a total submission to God.

Don’t ask the preacher to do all the work

Typically enough, do you know the last thing Simon the sorcerer said? He said, “Pray for me”. Oh, how typical! You do the work, you get desperate. I’ll trust your prayers. People come to me sometimes, and I say, “Brother, sister, you’re wanting me to be desperate for you? I won’t do it. You get desperate for yourself. Don’t ask the preacher to do all the work; you start to get desperate”.

Dave Wilkerson said to a drug addict:

“If you’re desperate you can be delivered”. That’s true of almost every major area of deliverance! If you’re desperate you can get delivered. Don’t ask the preacher to be desperate for you!

Galatians 3:1

O foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you?

You say, they weren’t saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit? You couldn’t be more wrong, because the next verse says:

Did you receive the spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Yes, they were good Charismatic Christians, but they were bewitched!

Did you know that Spirit-baptized people can be bewitched? Believe me, they can. I took over a congregation that was bewitched by the wife of the previous pastor. Now, I came face to face with that power at that time, and I learned the truth about the Galatians.

2 Timothy 3

In the last days, deceivers shall wax worse and worse…

But the Greek word is magicians! I wish you’d notice that. 2 Timothy 3:13. Where the King James says deceivers, the Greek says magicians! These people are compared with Jannes and Jambres, the magicians who withstood Moses. Have you ever thought about the fact that the magicians of Egypt had supernatural power? Have you ever considered that? Moses threw down his rod, and it became a serpent. The magicians said, “We can do that”. And they did it. The only difference was that Moses’ snake ate up their snakes.

[A magician, also known as an archmage, mage, magus, magic-user, spellcaster, enchanter, sorcerer, witch, or wizard, is someone who uses or practices magic derived from occult sources.]

Revelation 9 and 18, you’ll find the references to witchcraft, and particularly in connection with Babylon [the Illuminati), the false religious situation. [Better say: the political and financial organization!]


[‘I want you to write a Scripture text across the book of Revelation 18:23. At the bottom of the Scripture, it says:

…. for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived… (talking to Babylon).

There’s no better Scripture that I know from the Word of God to describe the Illuminati! – John Todd]


Three things basically you have to do in order for you to be delivered and set free

Now, we’ve come to the time when we’re going to have an opportunity for you to be delivered and set free. There are three things basically you have to do.
Number one, if you’ve been involved in any of these things: heresies, departures from the Christian faith, or any form of satanic supernatural. There’s the list; I didn’t read it out. So I read it out:

Ouija boards, fortune telling, ESP, drugs (including all sorts of medical drugs like pep tablets, pain killers, sedation, and so on!), mediums, clairvoyants, meditation, Oriental cults and philosophies (such as yoga in particular), reincarnation, astrology, horoscopes, hypnosis, automatic writing, and grapho-analysis or handwriting analysis.

And that’s just a selection. If you’ve been involved in any of those things, or anything like them, and you want to be cleared. You want that dark shadow lifted off your life, you want that bondage taken away!

How many times people tell me:

“Brother Prince, just when the power of God is strongest in the meeting, and I feel I’m reaching out to God, and longing to worship Him, something comes between”.

And do you know the first question I ask?

“Have you been to a fortune teller?” About twice out of three times the answer is Yes. “Oh, but I was only a little girl when I went. Oh, I didn’t mean it, it was just a joke”. But you went. You went to a servant of satan for help that should come only from God. And God in His mercy is not going to lift that pressure ’till you come to the cause of it, and see what you did. It’s essential that every child of God gets clear about the dangers of occult involvement from this day onwards, that you’ll never be fooled, never be tempted, never go back, and get into that area again!

Now, you want to be free?

I’m going to tell you what to do.
You confess as a sin the involvement…. having your palm read, playing with a Ouija board, consulting a fortune teller, reading books about Edgar Cayce or Jeanne Dixon, and so on… many, many more!

Secondly, you renounce it. By a deliberate act of your will, you disassociate yourself from it. The best words I can think of are those of the psalmist David. “Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee [that’s the whole satanic, demonic realm], and that I grieved with those that rise up against thee; I hate them with perfect hatred, I count them mine enemies”. Is a Christian allowed to say that? Yes! Not about flesh and blood because we don’t war against flesh and blood, but against God’s spiritual enemies.

You have to say, “I hate them with perfect hatred, I count them mine enemies!”

God will not deliver you from your friends, why should He? But if you’ll make them your enemies He’ll deliver you!

You confess, you renounce, and you break every contact!

If you have a Ouija board, you burn it. If you have horoscopes, you burn them. If you have books in that category about transmigration of souls, Yoga, and all these things, you burn them. You do not leave anything in your house that leaves a chink open in the door for the devil to come back! There has to be a housecleaning for most Christians!

In Acts 19 when the power of satan was revealed…

and the believers saw what really was happening, it’s a remarkable things. It says, great fear came upon all, and many that believed [believers] came and confessed and showed their evil deeds. They’d been believers but they’d been playing with the other side at the same time. And those that had books about the occult brought them and burned them. And the price was fifty thousand pieces of silver, fifty thousand dollars-worth of books burned. You cannot afford to keep it. Don’t sell it, don’t pass it on because you’ll poison somebody else! Destroy it! See, and if you don’t destroy it, your deliverance will not be complete or permanent.

You cannot fool God, nor can you fool the devil

Don’t try. Each of them knows when you mean business.

The key word for most people today is:
repent, stop fooling around and playing church, and being a little religious. And get desperate. Make a decision!


I’m going to give everybody an opportunity to be disassociated from the occult

Would you stand to your feet. If in listening to me, you stand here and realize that in some way you’ve been involved with the satanic supernatural, and you have never dealt with the problem, you’ve never renounced it, you’ve never made a clean break until now, but you now desire to do so, I want you to do one thing.

I want you to say this out loud after me….

When you’ve said it, turn loose. If anything comes out, let it come. I don’t know what could happen here in the next few minutes, but let it go. And if you are fearful, just remember that if you’re respectful, obedient, and cooperative, nothing can harm you.

“In the name of Jesus, I bind every demonic power that’s here, and I demand that they leave without hurting any person or without hurting others. And I claim the protection of the blood of Jesus over the families and relatives and friends and associations of all that are here. In Jesus’ name.” 

All right, now you say this: 

“Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that You are the Son of God, the Messiah, who came in the flesh. You died on the cross for my sins, and You rose again from the dead. I now confess all my sins. I repent of all my sins. In particular, I confess seeking to satan for help that should come only from God. I confess as a sin — now name the thing: fortune telling, Ouija board, whatever it is, anything that the Spirit of God now brings to you… say: ‘I confess as a sin’. Lord, I now renounce that. I renounce satan and all his works! I hate his demons; I count them my enemies! In the name of Jesus, I loose myself now from every dark spirit, from every evil influence, from every satanic bondage, from any spirit in me that is not the Spirit of God. I command all such spirits to leave me now in the name of Jesus!”

Now let them go.

“Satan, I bind your power, and command you to loose these people, and come out from them now in Jesus’ name! Every spirit of divination, sorcery, witchcraft, I bind your power in the name of Jesus, and I command you to loose these people, and depart from them and from this place in Jesus’ mighty name, through the power of the blood of the cross. In the name of Jesus. Satan, be loosed, be cast out, in Jesus’ mighty name!”
