The Super Bowl season has passed. Once again, the Patriots triumphed. But did they get a little supernatural help? Did Satan seal their win before their opponent, the Los Angeles Rams, ever took the field? In a casual post-game interview, legendary quarterback Tom Brady, exulted over winning his sixth Super Bowl and gave credit to his wife’s witchcraft. He unabashedly declared that his wife is a witch, and that she had warned him, “You’re lucky you married a witch—I’m just a good witch.”
He further revealed that his wife, Gisele Bündchen, an internationally famous model, gave him an amulet to wear around his neck during the big game and even created an altar of sacred stones before which he bowed, to ensure that his team would beat the Rams. According to Brady, Gisele also gave him mantras to say. In one of the worst-played Super Bowls in history, the win turned on a couple of key plays. Is it possible that Gisele the witch influenced the outcome? Brady claims his wife told him after the big game, “See? I did a lot of work. You do your work, and I do mine.”
The “Wall Street Journal” reported that her witchcraft is based on astrology, Buddhism, “higher vibrations of love,” and Mexican spiritualist Don Miguel Ruiz. Ruiz is a shaman and Toltec spiritualist. The Toltecs were an ancient pre-Aztec civilization from whom the Aztecs borrowed human sacrifice and worship of the serpent demon-god Quetzalcoatl! Also keep in mind that Gisele is from Brazil, where almost all non-Christians practice some form of Macumba, the Brazilian form of voodoo, one of the most highly-developed forms of witchcraft in the western world. That’s likely where her own demonization began. Just last week, during a Personal Encounter session, I performed an exorcism on a young man with violent Macumba demons he inherited from Brazilian ancestors. No matter how beautiful Gisele is, Macumba is an ugly, hideous form of witchcraft.
My point is not to paint Brady as a Satanist. He’s likely clueless about his wife’s demons. His thing is deflated footballs and winning. He’s obviously a spiritual zero. What’s sad is the way he so casually speaks of witchcraft, with a grin and a joke about having a witch for a wife. But I have a warning for this Hall-of-Fame-bound quarterback. Someday, when the crowds are no longer cheering, and the confetti no longer falling, you’re going to be stuck with being Ahab to Jezebel, and we know from Scripture how that turned out.
An encouraging word: JESUS MAKES A DIFFERENCE
There are so many ways that Jesus makes a difference, especially in practical terms. Leaving eternal life out of the equation, it’s worth it to follow Christ. Faith in Jesus can bring freedom from demonic bondage, addictions, emotional dysfunction, debilitating diseases, troubled relationships, financial failure, mental torment; the list is almost endless. All these benefits aren’t automatic. The follower of Christ must walk by faith, study God’s Word, appropriate His promises, claim his liberation, declare His victory. But a faithful walk with God can bring forth a life of true fulfillment and happiness. Jesus DOES make all the difference in the world. As Acts 4:12 puts it, “There is none other name given among men under heaven by which we must be saved.”
