Essential confirmation of my warning from last week about the plan of global Satanists to affect an early end of the Trump administration.
Spells can have power, according to Father Vincent Lampert, the designated exorcist for the archdiocese of Indianapolis since 2005 and also the pastor for St. Malachy in Indianapolis. “I think there’s power, but it’s not coming from God,” Father Lampert said. “Anyone who would dare say they want to challenge that God is in charge is using the power of evil as their own. They should realize that we can’t use the devil; the devil uses us. People can’t control it and the devil ends up using them for his own purposes.”
Spells, according to Father Lampert, only have an effect in people who are spiritually weak. If we are anchored in God, he said Scripture tells us we have nothing to fear. “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places,” (Ephesians 6:10-18).
Father Lampert pointed out that in Deuteronomy 18:10-12, using witchcraft is condemned as detestable to God. He has known a few people who derive a sense of power and make money from people paying to have spells cast. Hundreds of people have come to Father Lampert for help after spells were cast on them.
“You can’t stop someone from placing a curse, but as a Christian, if you are you praying to God and going to him, the curse will have no power,” Father Lampert said. For Catholics, he said going to Mass, receiving the Eucharist and going to Confession, is strong protection against evil. “Curses are effective when people are weak,” Father Lampert explained. “People are fearing devil more than trusting God.”
As for the call for those casting the spell, Father Lampert said they are relying on evil that feeds on anger and revenge. “The end result of all this for people will be to find themselves more deeply entangled with the devil,” he said. “Their lives will continue to spiral out of control because they do not have God as an anchor.”
One almost wonders how many crescent moons there are over the next four to eight years. Will they claim success after the next presidential election or after a finished second term? Would that amount to illegal election influence? Could they claim retroactive credit for the 22nd Amendment? It, while amusing, matters little.
As I warned, these are powers far beyond the control of people, powers better left completely alone. Once they are summoned, there is no telling how they will react nor what they will do.

Many would be pleased if this actually worked against Trump. The problem is that evil cannot accomplish good. I am not inclined to wish this kind of intervention on anyone – Trump, Obama, ISIS – literally no one is worth the risk nor deserves the implications. Enough harm and evil is done by man without recourse to the actual Devil. And I would wish even less to involve myself in the process. Often the conjurers are more targets than their intended victims.
Many refuse to acknowledge any of this exists in the first place. For many it is, all of it, ridiculous nonsense, baseless superstition. Given the ridiculous fiasco that is so much of modern, organized religion, that is somewhat understandable. Flawed but understandable.
Less understandable are the many “Christians” who attend church out of popular obligation while not comprehending at all what they experience through The Word. In their own way they embrace the attitude of superstition. It’s a country club affair for many, a social gathering. For others it is a club and a shield for self-righteousness. This is frequently accompanied by a desire to meld the teachings of the Church to the ways of the State: jingoistic national religion, more the former than the latter.
All the while, the Devil stalks. He’s out there of his own accord; leave him be. Regardless of the intent behind the invitation to let him in, he makes a most unwelcome guest.
