How This Demonic Spirit Has Increased Deaths From COVID-19

by | May 6, 2020 | Spiritual Warfare

Many churches today fail to teach about the Holy Spirit and His miracle-working power, so they don’t see the manifestation of the Spirit, says apostle Jay Caprietta. “Many people miss these things in the Scriptures, and that’s why I believe that we don’t see many healings in the body of Christ today,” he says.

Demonic causes of illness are more common today than purely physical ones, Caprietta says on the Kingdom Authority With James Alford podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. “Today, today we are dealing with an alleged pandemic called COVID-19, coronavirus. Corona, by the way, means ‘crown.’ … COVID-19 has attached to it a spirit of fear and a demon of fear. And so, the way the media is advertising is that the coronavirus is a ‘death virus,'” he says.

Caprietta says that brings great power to the media. “They can use that to do whatever they want. Because if you want to get to somebody, get somebody’s attention, you mess with their health, anything to do with their health, you have their attention right now. The spirit of fear that has come upon people is demonic in every sense of the word,” he says. “And that kind of gives you a picture of where people’s minds are today. There’s a majority of people out there who are in fear of contracting COVID-19, even though they may not even be close to it; they don’t know where it is. And so they’re living in fear.”

But another aspect of the pandemic, Caprietta says, is even more demonic. “The majority of people who do contract it, they recover from it. But there are some people who could have recovered from it but died simply because of fear.” He cites a medical doctor who says that “fear causes anxiety and panic. And also fear is connected to stress.” Whenever you’re under stress from fear, whether of the coronavirus, cancer or whatever it may be, Caprietta says, “if fear and stress are involved, it weakens your immune system. … And so [the coronavirus or other illness] takes over the person in a stronger grip, and it destroys the person simply because their immune system has now become weakened because of the spirit of fear.”
