Did you know that Jerry Eze can summon spirits? Just like witches and wizards do, the Benny Hinn of Umuahia – I understand it’s Abuja now – actually conjures up spirits of people. If you think I’m making this up, think again. The guy said so himself in this video clip of a recent message.

Dead or alive, Jerry Eze claims he is able to summon the spirit of anyone and they’ll obey his voice. This may surprise you, but it’s something “they” do regularly in the “kingdom.” The fact that the ancient practice has become a lost art is something Jerry Eze finds disconcerting.

Preaching on a message titled “Wisdom for Divine Settlements” – whatever that means – a little over 3 weeks ago, Jerry Eze gives his raucous audience spiritual insights on how to rein in their wayward children. 

In order to effectively bring their lawless children to obedience, Jerry Eze tells the audience they must summon their spirits:

“Don't you know that we used to summon spirits in this kingdom. You have a child and you have never summoned their spirits before, so what have you been doing?........No, no, no!”

Incredulous at his audience ignorance about this spirit summoning ability, he asks them:

“So, you were not informed? You don’t know about it? Ok, let me leave your children. You don’t know we summon the spirits of people? Oh, they made you believe it’s only the witches and wizards that can summon spirits.”

Jerry Eze goes on to explain to his audience what this spirit summoning power is all about, who to use it on, and how best to use it.

“Let me tell you something. Anybody that gives you trouble. Eh! I’m telling you what is proven and tested. I’m not…I’m not…I’m not…Wake up in the middle of the night. That time their spirit is moving from one dream to another dream, command their spirit to show up.”

When the spirits show up, Jerry Eze tells his audience what to do.

“When you summon their spirits, read for them ordinances of the kingdom. And tell them, if you don't obey, this is what is going to happen. You don’t know how to summon spirit…it’s not what I came to. But Sir……until you address some people’s spirits, their bodies will not align. Let me...let me leave that one there.”

Twice in the video clip, you’d hear Jerry Eze mention the “kingdom.” Which kingdom he is referring to is a question he alone can answer. What thing I do know is that it’s definitely not the Kingdom of God.

Summoning of spirits is what mediums, necromancers, and witches do. These pagan practices are abominable to God. Throughout Scripture, you’d find several instances where God warned His people not to engage in such.

“There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you.” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

In ancient Israel, capital punishment was the penalty if found guilty of such practices. Anyone who summoned spirits was stoned to death.

“A man or a woman who is a medium or a necromancer shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:27)

King Saul’s downfall was partly because he consulted the witch of Endor to summon the spirit of Samuel (1 Samuel 28:7-20). The wrath of God was kindled against Saul as result, and God allowed Samuel to come back to pronounce the final judgement on him. 

To the followers of Jerry Eze reading this, and to you who subscribe to his myths and mysticism, you ought to know this. The gospel Jerry Eze preaches is not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The god he worships is not the same God of the Bible. And the kingdom of which he is an ambassador is not the Kingdom of YAHWEH.

You’d be well advised to steer clear of Jerry Eze and his false teachings and demonic practices. Those who patronize him risk bringing upon themselves spiritual ruin. You’ve been warned.
