Why They Launched Harry Potter At 12:01 Midnight
A missionary and his family were forced to camp
outside on a hill. They had money with them and
were fearful of an attack by roving thieves.
After praying, they went to sleep. Months later
an injured man was brought into the mission
hospital. He asked the missionary if he had
soldiers guarding him on that special night.
"We intended to rob you," he said, "but we
were afraid of the twenty-seven soldiers."
When the missionary returned to his homeland, he
related this strange story, and a member of his
church said, "we had a prayer meeting that night,
and I took the roll. There were just twenty-seven
of us present."
Why was their prayer so effective?
Because they prayed it at the midnight hour.
(By the way, that story is from Billy Graham's
Hope for the Troubled Heart.)
Recently, something else was also programmed into
the midnight hour. It was so huge, so far-reaching,
with the potential to affect the lives of untold
millions around the world.
I am talking about the global launch of the new
book in the Harry Potter series on July 16th.
The Midnight Launch
Unless you've been vacationing in some cave (away
from tv and other news media) these past few weeks,
you most certainly have been bombarded by the
latest wave of "Pottermania," which was launched
just after midnight (12:01a.m.to be exact) in
all the continents.
Kids all over the world had to camp out at midnight,
in their favorite bookstores just to grab their copy
of "Harry Potter and the half blood prince," the
latest book in the wildly popular Harry Potter series.
The books were reportedly flying off the shelves at
the rate of 50,000 copies an hour! Incredible.
But why was it launched at midnight?
Spiritual people understand that midnight is a
crucial spiritual entity on its own. The most
powerful, history-making events that you hear about
(both good and bad) can be traced to the midnight hour.
A few examples from the Bible:
* When God wanted to execute judgment on Egypt, He
chose the midnight hour (Exodus 11).
* Samson waited till the midnight hour to storm
the gates of his enemies (Judges 16).
* It was at midnight that Paul and Silas were
rescued from prison (Acts 16).
So was it any surprise that:
* Those at the forefront of the global revival
of witchcraft waited until midnight of July 16
to launch their lethal weapon?
Many bad things that we hear about daily have their
origin at midnight. In Job 34:20 we read:
"In a moment shall they die, and the people
shall be troubled at midnight, and pass away:
and the mighty shall be taken without hand."
So why did they launch Harry Potter at midnight?
If you are a Christian you may or may not be aware of
the explosive revival of witchcraft internationally,
pioneered by a spirit known to our modern world as
Harry Potter. His real name in the Bible is
Beelzebub, lord of the flies.
He has brilliantly repackaged himself and is being
marketed to unsuspecting kids the world over as
the fun, harmless, even lovable Harry Potter!
In this modern incarnation, he has some interesting
things on his agenda for kids. It's been called
the 7-point plan.
Harry's 7-point Agenda
* Entice and initiate as many kids as possible
into "fun" witchcraft through the Harry Potter
books and movies... and gradually but quietly
graduate them into deep occultism and hard
core black magic as they grow older.
* Push them to commit suicide (Note: many kids
are reported to have gone into deep depression
already as a result of the death in this new
book - just the prelude to suicide).
* Use more kids as instruments to commit mass
murder in schools and other public places.
* Use innocent looking kids to lure and recruit
their unsuspecting friends into witchcraft
(In the city where I live 610 kids gathered
just 2 days after the launch to practice how to
cast spells and mix portions)
* Position at least one witchcraft-practising
kid in each family, then later equip her to
wreck the home and turn that family into a
* Use the kids to promote an epidemic of
rebellion (with a little help from drugs
and hip hop music), plus an unprecedented
level of pornography, sexual perversion and
* Use the kids as the foot soldiers in the
renewed war against the spread of the gospel of
Jesus Christ to the next generations.
The Good News
You see, this intelligent witchcraft spirit (or
Harry Potter, if you prefer) is waging this
serious war against kids knowing fully well that
they are tomorrow's leaders... and GOD has a
special plan for them.
We know from Psalm 8:2 that GOD wants to use
the children to disgrace His enemies.
And HE has graciously give us a very effective
weapon to help keep our kids out of the clutches
of Harry Potter (a.k.a. Beelzebub).
That weapon is...
To pray over our kids while they are sleeping.
We, as parents, must minister to them gently
and in love.
Infants and young children (including the ones
in the womb) need to be prayed for against
bad influence from friends, and unconscious
witchcraft initiation through Pottermania.
They need to be constantly placed under the
protection of the blood of Jesus.
You should get into the habit of reading the
entire Psalm 91 over your children... daily.
Here's a small sample of the kind of prayer
you should be praying:
"As the LORD lives, my kids (mention them by
name) shall not come under the bewitchment of
Harry Potter and his agents in Jesus' name.
I bind all enchantments and divinations
programmed to waste my kids in Jesus' name.
The God that answers by fire let him be God.
O LORD, answer by fire and disgrace every evil
messenger assigned against my kids in the
name of Jesus."
If you program this kind of prayer into the
midnight hour, it will:
* counter and destroy any evil altar raised
up by Harry Potter against your kids.
* recall and break all incantations uttered
that night to destroy the destiny of your kids.
(Please note: God takes this type of activity
seriously, because HE knows the destructive
effects of divinations, etc... you can read
about the classic case of Balaam in Num. 22).
* (this is an exciting one!) stamp the mark of
"touch not my anointed" on the forehead of
all your children. This will effectively
put them out of reach of modern witchcraft
And there's more...
I'm reserving it for next time...

Englund wrote in a letter to the tabloid Aftonbladet that his decision was linked to the Swedish academy's decision late last year to cut ties with the head of a Stockholm cultural center who was accused of sexual misconduct. The academy asked a law firm to investigate what influence the man, whom it did not name, had on the academy.
