The question of whether or not road accidents are caused by satanists is quite controversial, and there may be no consensus even among believers themselves because scripture does not speak directly regarding this matter.


 However, when you look at the modus operandi of the devil, as revealed in scripture, it can be safely concluded that satanists can be responsible for traffic accidents. In John 10:10, Jesus explains that three–pronged strategy that the devil employs in his operations: “The thief cometh not but for to steal, to kill and to destroy…”


 Almost all the time when accidents happen, people are killed and property is destroyed. And there have also been widespread reports of how valuables often disappear on the scene of an accident.

 A lot of times if you watch or follow deliverance sessions in some churches, you hear chilling accounts by self –proclaimed satanists of how they cause road accidents.


 The fact that we pray before we embark on a journey, asking the Lord for journey mercies, is in itself an acknowledgment that the roads upon which we travel are battlegrounds on which the devil and his followers, the satanist, play like jackals. Here, they walk like roaring lions, seeking whom they may devour (1 Peter 5:8).


 God is a giver of life. But accidents claim lives. What this means is that God cannot be the one behind road accidents when they happen. The Bible says he is not an author of confusion or chaos. A lot of tales have been told across Africa of how satanists have caused accidents and this cannot be easily dismissed.


 There are only two kingdoms in the world that constantly collide. On the one hand, we have the kingdom of darkness, run and controlled by the devil, and on the other, we have the Kingdom of God. This assertion finds scriptural basis in Colossians 1:13 which reads: “For he has rescued us from the dominion (kingdom) of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves…”


 Testimonies abound of Christians who have refused to use certain vehicles only to learn later that the same vehicles have been involved in accidents. A lot of time, the person would have responded to the unction of the Holy Spirit not to use that particular vehicle. This shows the importance of always being in tune with the Holy Spirit.


 Self–proclaimed satanists, Busy Mana Thenetse, George Renee Lungange and Ngezi Bragston, currently held at the Harare Central prison have confirmed that among some of their occult practices was causing accidents, often viewed as sacrifice as they need to use the human blood shed in their satanic practices.


 The prisoners, who even bragged to journalists during a media prison tour, claimed that they drank human blood. 


 It would be folly for us, against this background, to believe that accidents are just “natural” occurrences with no spiritual source or authority behind them. The Bible, in Ephesians 6:12, categorically states that our fight is neither against blood nor flesh, but principalities and powers which often control what happens in this world.
