UPDATE:  September 23, 2008 – Video Found of WitchHunter Praying Over Palin Click Here

Palin linked electoral success to prayer of Kenyan witchhunter

Blog_hstrange_2 The pastor whose prayer Sarah Palin says helped her to become governor of Alaska founded his ministry with a witchhunt against a Kenyan woman who he accused of causing car accidents through demonic spells.

Muthee_400156gAt a speech at the Wasilla Assembly of God on June 8 this year, Mrs Palin described how Thomas Muthee had laid his hands on her when he visited the church as a guest preacher in late 2005, prior to her successful gubernatorial bid.

In video footage of the speech, she is seen saying: “As I was mayor and Pastor Muthee was here and he was praying over me, and you know how he speaks and he’s so bold. And he was praying “Lord make a way, Lord make a way.”

“And I’m thinking, this guy’s really bold, he doesn’t even know what I’m going to do, he doesn’t know what my plans are. And he’s praying not “oh Lord if it be your will may she become governor,” no, he just prayed for it. He said “Lord make a way and let her do this next step. And that’s exactly what happened.”

She then adds: “So, again, very very powerful, coming from this church,” before the presiding pastor comments on the “prophetic power” of the event.

An African evangelist, Pastor Muthee has given guest sermons at the Wasilla Assembly of God on at least 10 occasions in his role as the founder of the Word of Faith Church, also known as the Prayer Cave.

Pastor Muthee founded the Prayer Cave in 1989 in Kiambu, Kenya after “God spoke” to him and his late wife Margaret and called him to the country, according to the church’s website.

The pastor speaks of his offensive against a demonic presence in the town in a trailer for the evangelical video “Transformations”, made by Sentinel Group, a Christian research and information agency.

“We prayed, we fasted, the Lord showed us a spirit of witchcraft resting over the place,” Pastor Muthee says.

After the spirit was broken, the crime rate dropped to almost zero and there was “explosive church growth” while almost every bar in the town closed down, the video says.

The full Transformations video featuring Pastor Muthee’s story has recently been removed from YouTube but the rest of the story is detailed in a 1999 article in the Christian Science Monitor, as well as on numerous evangelical websites.

According to the Christian Science Monitor, six months of fervent prayer and research identified the source of the witchcraft as a local woman called Mama Jane, who ran a “divination” centre called the Emmanuel Clinic.

Her alleged involvement in fortune-telling and the fact that she lived near the site of a number of fatal car accidents led Pastor Muthee to publicly declare her a witch responsible for the town’s ills, and order her to offer her up her soul for salvation or leave Kiambu.

Says the Monitor, “Muthee held a crusade that “brought about 200 people to Christ”.” They set up round-the-clock prayer intercession in the basement of a grocery store and eventually, says the pastor “the demonic influence – the ‘principality’ over Kiambu –was broken”, and Mama Jane fled the town.

According to accounts of the witchhunt circulated on evangelical websites such as Prayer Links Ministries, after Pastor Muthee declared Mama Jane a witch, the townspeople became suspicious and began to turn on her, demanding that she be stoned. Public outrage eventually led the police to raid her home, where they fired gunshots, killing a pet python which they believed to be a demon.

After Mama Jane was questioned by police – and released – she decided it was time to leave town, the account says.

Pastor Muthee has frequently referred to this witchhunt in his sermons as an example of the power of “spiritual warfare”. In October 2005, he delivered ten sermons at the Wasilla Assembly of God, the audio of which was available on the church’s website until it was removed around the time Mrs Palin’s candidacy was announced. The blog Irregular Times has listings and screen grabs of the sermons.

It was during that these sermons that Mrs Palin, who was then preparing for her gubernatorial run, was anointed by Pastor Muthee. His intercession, she says, was “awesome”.

Her June 8 speech was to mark the graduation of students from the Wasilla Assembly of God’s Masters’ Commission, which, as Pastor Ed Kalins explains, believes Alaska will be the refuge for American evangelicals upon the coming “End of Days”. After her speech, Mrs Palin was presented with an honorary Masters’ Commission diploma.

    I’ll comment: scary story. I think it deserves a lot of play and particularly needs to be brought to the attention of mainstream Republicans and even fundamentalists, to whom this strain of Pentacostalism is a heresy.

    Charles – Thanks for coming by and leaving your comment. I’m not sure that everyone knows about Pentacostals and some of their more unusual views and practices.

  3. […] Assembly of God – Video Showing Extreme Views We had an earlier post regarding Palin and the witchhunter who “layed hands” on Sarah Palin. Here is some additional information about the churches that she’s attended […]

    this is nothing compared to Obama’s crazy radical left friends like Wright and Flager and most of all William Ayers. Ayers adn Obama’s abortion voting record which is basically infantcide, along with his arrogance will be the end of him.

  5. jessica says:

    yeah, i just watched your lame video and there is absolutely nothing in there that is stange. so the guy was praying over her. big deal. that happens a lot in many churches including baptist.

  6. 2lesbosgoinatit says:

    Hi Jessica – Thanks so much for stopping by and especially for the comments.

    You’re probably right. Most people would find it quite normal if their preacher went out hunting witches and then came back to their speaking in tongues church to pray over Dick Cheney’s head and protect him from witch craft.

    I mean that happens in just about every church every Sunday – right? I’m sure Dick Cheney is sorry that he missed the opportunity for such a ceremony.

    Thanks again for stopping by.

    By the way you and Obama seem to agree about Wright and Flager. On the other hand in June Sarah Palin was still talking about the witchhunter’s help in getting the governor’s office.

    Maybe you don’t realize it but this preacher who prayed over Palin’s beehive has been responsible for incredible violence against women and children because he believes in witches and the supernatural. I don’t know maybe if you could speak in tongues like the folks at Palin’s church, you’d get it.
