If you are being harassed by witchcraft powers, or threatened by satanic agents, or somewhere along the line, an agent of the devil put a curse upon your life, this message is for you. Or perhaps you married without your parents’ consent and now there are problems, or you know that you are not where you are supposed to be financially, physically, spiritually, and maritally, or you are from the riverine area, you must take this message seriously. A PDF download is available here.
This message is one that the enemy does not want you to read because you would definitely find freedom in it. We are going to be looking at quite a number of scriptures to put things in proper context. Revelation 12: 12 says, “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.” This scripture is telling us that there are creatures in the sea, which are also sentenced to the woe that would befall the inhabitants of the earth. In 1 Samuel 5:3, we see the name of a Philistine idol, which in our present day language can stand for mermaid spirit. The name of that idol is ‘dagon’. Dagon was half fish, half woman. So, the mermaid spirit is not a new invention. When the Philistines took the ark of God and brought it into the house of dagon and set it by dagon, something happened. 1 Samuel 5: 3 says, “And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the Lord. And they took dagon, and set him in his place again.” By the following day, the thing had scattered.
Ezekiel 29:1 –3: “In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. Speak and say, Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers which hath said, My river is mine own and I have made it for myself.” They had their Pharaoh inside the water.
Isaiah 27: 1 says, “In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” Ephesians 4: 10 says, “He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens that he might fulfill all things.” When Jesus died, He first of all went down. When He finished there, He arose.
In 1990, a newspaper carried the story of some Russian scientists who caught a creature that was half- human, half-fish in the sea of Cuba. It told them that it was from a city inside the sea and begged them seriously to be allowed to go. They promised to let it go if it told them a little bit about where it came from. It told them that it lived inside the water and occasionally came among human beings, mixed with them to pollute their lives. It then asked them to let it go but they refused and it told them that a great misfortune and irreparable calamity would befall Russia. If they insisted on keeping it. These are the types of creatures we are talking about.
Sometime ago, by the beach, a man saw a lot of people, men and women dancing. But as he moved close to them, they ran away. He wondered why they were all running away. He also noticed that they were wearing the same kind of clothes. He ran after them but could not catch up with them. When he looked back, he saw that one of the women was left behind. He seized her clothes and she begged him to release them but he refused. Instead, he asked her to marry him. The woman agreed and he took her home. The man hid the cloth where the woman would not find it. They started living together and had two children. One day, one of the children saw where he hid the clothes and brought them out. Immediately the woman saw it, she quickly put it on and ran towards the beach, and disappeared from there. When the man came back from work, the children told him what happened and he ran to the beach but he could not find her. These are the creatures we are talking about.
I know another man who proposed marriage to a girl and she promised to marry him on the condition that he would not be seeing her on Fridays. So every Friday, the woman would disappear. The man never bothered until one Friday morning, somebody who called himself a prophet came and said, “Where is your wife?” He said, “I don’t see her on Fridays.” And the ‘prophet’ said, “What kind of marriage is that? You don’t see your wife on Fridays and you are comfortable with that. This is foolishness.” The prophet convinced him it was foolishness and he began to search around for his wife. He got to a pond at the back of their house and found that she had turned into a mermaid and was swimming in the pond. Immediately, she set eyes on him, she disappeared. Then he decided to go to the prophet and complain to him that his wife had disappeared. The prophet was nowhere to be found and his children too, died one after the other. These are the spirits we are talking about.
One of the most destructive agents in our environment is water spirits.
The Bible talks about three major strongholds:
1. The heavens.
2. The earth.
3. The sea.
The Bible also talks about the queen of heaven, the kings of the earth and the queen of the sea. It is usually a fierce battle when somebody is being attacked from these three places. Genesis 1: 26 says, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” In the foregoing, we can see these three places mentioned again. The Bible says that we should have dominion over these three principal strongholds: the sea, the air, and the earth. Exodus 20: 3 – 4 says, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in (1) heaven above, (2) or that is in the earth beneath, (3) or that is in the water under the earth.” Again, we see the three strongholds: the heaven, the earth and the sea.
Deuteronomy 5: 8 also says, “Thou shall not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth.”
So far, we have seen examples of what we call water spirit. We have also seen scriptures that tell us that they exist. Revelation 10:1-6 is another very interesting scripture to consider. It talks about what some people call the triangular angel. It says, “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire. And he had in his hands a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth. And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven. And swear by him that liveth forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer.”
When that angel wanted to cancel what we call time, he had to do it in these three zones. He had his right leg on the sea, his left leg on the earth, and one finger pointing towards heaven before he decreed that there should be time no longer. Therefore, we too, must learn to fight in these three places. Some of us are still battling with forces of the earth not knowing that what is harassing us is in the water. We must also learn to deal with the waters. We must learn to bring the words of God against the rivers and the sea because the forces of the water are very mean. They are resolute and wicked. Their path is marked with blood and they are hard task- masters. They know how to control and manipulate men. They are heartless, patient and subtly destructive. Nothing is safe from their influence. They can lie low for years before striking. They are very stubborn and can be very insultive. They commit fornication with leaders in order to confuse them. Whenever a church leader is caught in adultery or fornication, you can be sure the woman or man involved is from the water.
We see some churches that are specifically built close to the sea or river; it is for a purpose. Some churches take their members to the river or sea to bathe or perform other rituals. They introduce the smell of people’s body to the demons in the water. They do all these because they operate with the powers from the waters. They know what they are doing and they make mockery of fireless prayers.
WHY ARE MARINE SPIRITS SO POWERFUL?
Genesis 1: 6 –8 :“And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.” It means that there is water at the top and there is water below, and God used the firmament to divide them. Verses 9 – 10: “And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.” God commanded the dry land to appear and commanded the waters to move to one side. Then the dry land, He called earth and the gathering together of the waters, He called seas. It means that everything is from the water.
In verses 6 to 8, when God finished His work on the second day, the Bible did not record that God said it was good. God did not pass any comment on that separation because it is man’s activity that would determine whether that firmament would be good or bad, that is, you determine the nature of your heavens. When the Bible says, “Thy heaven shall be brass,” it makes it personal. So everywhere was water and 85 per cent of the earth is still water. 70 per cent of the human body is water meaning that everything on earth responds to water. When God wanted to deal with Pharaoh, the first place He sent Moses to was the River Nile of Egypt. Pharaoh had an agreement with River Nile. He had an agreement with the waters. He went there very early in the mornings and consulted the gods of the river.
Sometime ago, some fishermen called a sister and told her that they used to see her husband coming to talk to one woman at the sea everyday by 4 a.m. Before then, the woman had been wondering where the man always went early in the mornings. One day, as the man was going to keep his usual appointment by the sea. the woman tiptoed and followed him. He went through a bush path to the lagoon. A woman appeared in front of him and they were discussing. Immediately she moved close, the water spirit told the man to go back home because somebody had followed him there. The man knew that it was his wife and when he got home, he gave her a very seriouswoman kept quiet and never told anybody about it. Few years later, the man died, killed by the same water spirit.
Sometime ago, a pastor from a certain Pentecostal church took some people to a lagoon front for water baptism. The exercise went on successfully until one girl was dipped inside the water for immersion. Something gripped her legs and the pastor could not raise her up. A battle started. As he pulled her up, some unseen forces were dragging her down inside the water. The pastor began to speak in tongues and to pray fire prayers which he used to criticize before the girl could be released from the water. Right from that day, he stopped going to the lagoon for baptism. He now uses swimming pools where he can see everything underneath. Beloved, this is a very serious matter.
OUR ANCESTORS AND WATER SPIRITS
If you live in a riverine area or you come from there, you need to really pray. Just as we have mermaids, we also have mermen. God had to disgrace the water spirit in Egypt. He killed the fish that the Egyptians worshipped as gods. Before the purpose of God could be established in many areas, water spirit has to be dealt with. Many nations and many lives will not advance unless this is dealt with.
Our forefathers used to worship water spirits. Some even call them their spirit wives and spirit husbands. They gave them names. The Yorubas call it “Yemoja”, the mother of the children of fish. The Binis call it “Olokun,” the owner of the atlantic, some people call it “Ebo”, the owner of the sea. These kinds of things show that our forefathers worshipped them, and these evil spirits dealt with them. You do not expect them to leave you alone if you come from these places or families that are involved in their worship. In riverine areas, there is a lot of sexual looseness. A lot of kings have agreement with water spirits. They manipulate nations. A prototype of the kingdom of earth is also found under the sea.
Nigeria has a river called, River Niger and another one called River Benue. A lot of lives have perished in these rivers. Sometimes when contractors are working on River Niger, you would hear them say, “One nail has fallen down.” They are referring to a human being that had been swallowed by the powers in the river. They magnetize vehicles travelling on bridges. I have personally talked to somebody who went down into the river and was thrown out after six months. The vehicle he was travelling in plunged into a river and everybody in it died except him. All the while he was there, they did not give him their kind of food. His deliverance was something else. He did it 25 times. In Mark 5, when Jesus delivered the man called legion, the evil spirits begged to be sent into the swine and from the swine they ran back into the sea which was their place of origin. There is a very strong link between ancestral spirits and water spirit. Some of our forefathers had powerful charms that enabled them dive into the river and came out with their clothes still dry.
If God opens your spiritual eyes, you would see a lot of virtues of people buried in the bottom of the sea. It is very sad. Up till now, in some places, when a child is born, he is taken to the river and given some of the water to drink. That is the first thing he should drink. So right from day one, he gets initiated. Before you could find somebody from a riverine place who has a stable home, who is the husband of one wife, or the wife of one husband, and he or she is not a fornicator, or an adulterer, he or she must have been specially baptized with the fire of the Holy Ghost. Water spirits cause people to be polygamous and promiscuous.
THE GENERAL FEATURES OF MARINE SPIRITS
1.They are very proud. Job 41 talks much about this.
2.They try to control commerce and trade because most goods pass through the sea. (Ezekiel 27). That was the problem of Solomon. He was having a nice time until he began to import wood and all kinds of things from across the sea.
3.They control the flow of money and the economy (Revelation 17 and 18).
4.They cause sexual perversion. For example, adultery, fornication, abortion, incest, homosexuality, lesbianism, pornography, polygamy, etc. All these are sponsored from the water.
5.They control fashion. They invent all kinds of seductive dresses. Many of the hairstyles are from the water.
6.They control cosmetics and make-up.
7.They create desolation. They kill men and destroy things. These powers are responsible for the desolation in the riverine areas of Nigeria. Many people do not understand this.
8.They supervise the production of alcohol because once a person is drunk, his brain turns upside down and he would play into their hands.
9.They kill children.
10.They defy prayers.
SOURCES OF MARINE SPIRIT POLLUTION
1.POLYGAMY: There is no way a man would marry many wives and some of them would not be possessed with marine spirit. The fact that
the man is polygamous is enough evidence that he has a problem of marine spirit.
2.ANCESTRAL AND PARENTAL POLLUTION: This happens when your ancestors or parents are into marine worship.
3.ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION: When you live in a riverine area and you do not pray hard, you would get polluted.
4.SEEKING FRUIT OF THE WOMB FROM THE MARINE WORLD: These powers may give you a child but it would certainly be one from the kingdom of darkness. Children gotten by this means eventually kill their parents.
5.FAMILY IDOLS: Many idol worshippers consult water spirits.
6.RITUALS AND SACRIFICE: A person gets polluted through these means.
7.DIRECT ATTACK THROUGH MARINE POWERS RECRUITMENT EXERCISE: These powers have agents all over the place initiating people through materials like jewelry, clothing, attachments, etc.
8.PARENTS THAT ARE MARINE AGENTS: Children born of such parents would be polluted.
9.INITIATION BY FRIENDS: If you have friends who are possessed with water spirit, they will initiate you easily through food, clothes, etc.
10.GOING TO HERBALISTS, NATIVE DOCTORS OR CONSULTING ORACLES.
11.GOING TO UNIFORM CHURCHES.
12.BATHING BY THE RIVER ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF A SO-CALLED PROPHET.
13.NIGHT PARTIES: It is not everyone you see at night parties that are normal human beings. Many young people have been destroyed in disco halls because they danced and got involved with water spirits, without knowing.
14.SATANICALLY INSPIRED MUSIC: Many musicians get their inspiration from water spirits. Believer, must be very careful. The way some dancers perform clearly indicates where they come from.
15.SHARING CLOTHS WITH MARINE AGENTS: Believers must be careful who they borrow things from.
16.FOOD POLLUTION: They pollute people through food.
17.MARINE GIFTS: These come in the form of jewelry, clothes with wet look, etc.
18.SEX WITH MARINE PEOPLE: If you sleep with a marine agent you would become one of them.
19.ATTENDING MARINE FESTIVALS.
20.VISITING RIVERS OR STREAMS FOR CULTURAL REASONS.
21.SATANICALLY INSPIRED DANCE.
A person that has been polluted by marine powers would find it hard to practice Christianity because reading the Bible would be difficult, praying would be hard work, and fasting too, would be difficult. People possessed with water spirit have the spirit of anger. They dream about water. They find it difficult to settle down in marriage. Uncontrollable sexual urge, hindrances to progress, etc are also symptoms of marine pollution.
GOD’S STRATEGY FOR DEFEATING THEM
1. Raise a lamentation against them.
2. Spread your prayer net to trap them. A prayer net is praying at a specific interval.
3. Use the sword of the Lord, which is the word of God against them.
4. Use the coals of fire against them.
5. Use the thunder and lightening of God against them.
6. Use the blast of the Almighty against them.
7. Be sure that they do not have any investment in your life. If they do, pray out the investment.
8. Live a holy life.
9. Use the headstone of God against them
10. Declare holy war against them.
1. Oh Lord, make me your rod to break water spirit into pieces, in Jesus’ name.
2. I dismantle and frustrate every satanic investment upon my life, in Jesus’ name.
3. I ride on the horse of war against water spirit in the name of Jesus.
4. Oh Lord, let your arrow be strong in the heart of my enemies, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every satanic linkage to any body of water, break, in the name of Jesus.
