Prophecy: COVID-19 Python Spirit Trying to Separate Pastors From Their Flocks

by | May 15, 2020 | Prophetic Insight

Apostle James Alford isn’t buying into theories that say God brought COVID-19 to the earth these past few months as a judgment. From what the Lord has told him, the pandemic is “wholly from the realm of the demonic.”

“This coronavirus wasn’t from Him. The Lord gave me three different devils that are prevailing in this season,” Alford told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “There is fear, the spirit of death and, something interesting that God spoke to me about, a suffocating spirit.

“Fear has been the primary thing that has driven this whole virus situation. And of course, when fear enters in, it takes you away from faith, and death begins to operate. Then God said something I’ve never heard Him say to me before: the suffocating spirit,” Alford says. “I think some people refer to it as a python spirit. What He was saying to me was that this virus and the spirits that have been working behind it have been designed to divide the sheep from the shepherd. It is trying to separate the pastors and the leaders from their sheep, and it is trying to attack them in different areas. It’s trying to bring the church to a place of confusion and affliction.

“I don’t believe it will be successful. We’ve seen some pastors commit suicide, and we’ve seen a lot of different, crazy things happen during this time,” he adds. “I’ve heard some pastors have shut their churches down. The enemy is trying to disconnect the church from their church families. The enemy is trying to silence the church and put it in a place where it’s not effective. There is so much power and authority in our worship services on Sunday. Breaking that up allows the enemy to almost … begin to enter in and do things on earth he couldn’t do while we were meeting on Sundays, when were all together in one accord. But that hasn’t happened.”
