The demons are assigned to a person born in a family where from either parent, there was a person who was initiated as a witch doctor, or there was witchcraft practice, or royal or business family rituals.

Firstly, in the case of where someone went to be initiated as a witch doctor, the witch doctor is given powers by the devil to deceive people. They in return dedicate the family to the devil and his demons. Meaning that if you are born in that family, you inherit evil spirits that were dedicated to you through a covenant signed during the initiation. Continuous rituals and sacrifices are made to satisfy these false gods.

Secondly, when you are born in a royal house where someone in the family consulted the agents of the devil, to seek powers to strengthen the royal house, there are demons dedicated to the family through such agreements made in exchange of powers. Continuous rituals and sacrifices are made to satisfy these false gods.

Thirdly, when a family which has businesses consults the agents of the devil like false prophets and witch doctors for charms to strengthen their businesses. Being born in such families, you are also dedicated to the evil spirits in exchange for power. When evil spirits are in a person’s life, they torment that person. As the Word of God says, the devil has come into the world to kill, steal and destroy. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10) ESV.

Being born in such families, you are assigned spirits that just torment you. They can block prosperity, causing poverty in families, sicknesses that cannot be cured, joblessness, and failure at school and in business. If you do not know for sure whether your family was or is still involved in these practices, try to find out if there was ever a witch doctor in your family generation so you can close the door that was opened by that person through his or her practices.

The Word of God says that we should avoid wicked customs. “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 these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you.” Deuteronomy 18:10-13
People who come from a family of witch doctors are often tormented by dreams of:

    • Dead relatives giving them bones (dzithangu).
    • Evil things that come to pass.
    • Snakes and other scary things.
    • Always being in the water,

It is not easy to find out if your family is indeed involved in witchcraft. Some people who are dedicated to these spirits of witchcraft might not even know it. They would think that the strange things they do or those that happen to them are normal. They would think that is what every person experiences.

This is how you can know if your family is involved in witchcraft

    • Astral projection (seeing yourself getting out of your body).
    • Dreaming of flying to certain areas.
    • Dreaming of changing into different forms like animals, snakes, etc.
    • Whenever you imagine or dream about evil things, they come to pass. 
    • When you dream of yourself working in your dreams and you wake up feeling tired.

Solution: You need to do a separation prayer to ask God to separate you from these spirits. This is how you should pray: “Father God, forgive my forefathers for being witches or witch doctors. Forgive me also for being a witch or witch doctor (if you were initiated as one). Forgive me also for not living right (if you have not been living right). Separate me from these evil spirits of the family. Destroy all the covenants that were made on my behalf when I was young.

You should say this prayer so that the covenant can be broken. If you were initiated as a witch doctor, you need to have the tools burned and destroyed in a church which worships the Lord Jesus Christ. This way you would be separating yourself from these inherited spirits.
