A Christian prophet has a message for anyone with Native American or indigenous heritage: Repent, or risk an ominous-sounding spirit.
Cindy Jacobs, a self-proclaimed "prophet" who ministers around the world and produces prayer-themed videos, made the suggestion in a "Ten Minute Prayer Schools" webisode posted to Vimeo last week.
"The Lord put a subject on my heart," Jacobs says. "I have seen this spirit tearing up so many people lives, and I just really feel from the Lord that I should teach it."
Jacobs goes on to say the spirit is very territorial, very active and has "supernatural attributes" as detailed in the Bible's Job 41.
"If you have in your bloodline any animus, any Native American blood, for instance -- not all Native Americans worshiped the serpent or crocodile, many did — but you might want to renounce that and repent for the generational iniquity,” Jacobs says. “If you are -- perhaps you’re Mexican and you might have indigenous blood in you or Mayan blood -- those who have Aztec blood in any way, you need to repent for the sin of animism before you begin to deal with this spirit.”
Jacobs also recommends watching out for totem poles and other native representations of animals, particularly the image of the crocodile.
"The Leviathan spirit breaks down communication, it is a twisting spirit," Jacobs explains in the video.
It "distorts the conversation" and "you will never be able to remedy it with natural remedies," such as counseling. Side effects of the demonic spirit may also include depression, anger and confusion, according to the prophet.
Jacobs is not alone in her belief in this Leviathan spirit, however, as evidenced by video of this young woman's "deliverance" from the spirit during a service of Faith in Action Deliverance Ministries in the Bronx last year.
In the past, Jacobs has received mainstream attention after arguing she had observed God multiplying food as she was cooking it. She has also suggested that durable shoes are proof that God provides "supernatural provisions" for those willing to listen to him.
