As the coronavirus pandemic wears on, people have tried all kinds of spurious “remedies” like colloidal silver and the so-called “Miracle Mineral Solution” (which consists of chlorine dioxide, otherwise known as bleach.) These remedies do absolutely nothing to fight the virus, and now we can add another candidate to this list of false cures: Communion crackers, as in the one televangelist “Dr.” Candice Smithyman consumed before going to bed Saturday night.
“On Saturday, April 4 at 4:00 a.m. I was abruptly awoken by God after an encounter with a strong demonic force that came into my bedroom and tried to put a sickness upon me on my chest,” Smithyman wrote in Charisma News. “I cried out in my sleep three times as I rebuked this demon. I knew it had something to do with the coronavirus. The strange thing was that I went to bed with a communion cracker in my hand, which I never do, and I had been up praying for about three hours before I fell asleep and had this demonic encounter.”
Smithyman also mentioned that her husband told her he could hear her rebuking demons in her sleep.
“I took the cracker before the attack,” she said. “The next morning my husband told me I had been rebuking demons because he heard me cry out in the night against them while I was in my sleep. This dream was not because I was receiving the coronavirus; it was a warning dream, to tell the people that this virus is a demonic force and there is a way to deal with spiritually, as well as biologically. I believe this virus is a demonic stronghold from ancient Egypt still in existence today.”
“You see, the body of Christ’s repentance is a shield against this enemy,” she added.
Smithyman performs “faith healings” and has her own YouTube channel.
Here’s what she tweeted about her experience:
