The Subtle Deception of Witchcraft

When most people today hear the word witchcraft they think of some old stories that they heard of in the past like the Salem witch trials or some old women from the dark ages in England, wearing all black, conjuring up demonic spirits. In fact most people that do the practice today will even say that what they’re doing is not like what was done in the past , it’s a “good form” of witchcraft. It’s not the stuff that you read about in the old testament scriptures.

Witchcraft has inundated our society today in every facet of life and in the most subtle of ways where a lot of people that are into it don’t see that what they’re doing is wrong in the eyes of God.

Now especially in these uncertain times that we’re living in with many people losing their jobs, enhanced marital issues because of the quarantine, praying to God for answers and not getting any, to people that are facing eviction or losing their homes. People are looking for answers so they turn to things like psychic readings, horoscopes, astrology, praying to dead ancestors, turning to religion such as wicca, practicing voodo, hoodoo, dealing with shamans or dealing with people that do ritual cleansing. A few different publications have been reporting on the explosive growth of witchcraft in our society because people are losing hope. There are Instagram witches with hundreds of thousands of followers

and a myriad of “youthful astrologers.”

For the purposes of this article, witchcraft includes everything from psychics, horoscopes, astrology, obeah, voodoo, hoodoo, wicca, shamans, santeria, dealing with our dead ancestors and anything else that does not deal with turning to the Most High God through Jesus Christ for help.

First, let us not be deceived, anything that deals with seeking help from anyone or anything else other than the Most High God is witchcraft.

Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits [people that dealt with Satan and his demons much like today with the above definition for witchcraft], and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

People are looking for answers for their different situations and turning to these people and practices for answers.

In the time of uncertainty and turmoil like what we’re seeing now and has happened in the past, only the Most High God through his son Jesus Christ can save us.

Isaiah 47:12-14 Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth [people put their faith and trust in these things from an early age]; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers,

the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

Our strength and comfort during these turbulent times is only going to come by us living right according to how Jesus Christ showed us in the bible and praying to and leaning on him for guidance and support.

Matthew 6:33-34 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 11:28-30 [Jesus Christ is speaking] Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Philippians 4:12-13 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

We can all acknowledge that this time period that we’re living in is the end times and the things that are currently happening are end times prophecies and to follow and practice witchcraft is a very evil thing to do in the eyes of God, which we don’t want to get caught up in when Jesus Christ returns, as his return is very near.

Revelation 22:12-15 [Jesus Christ is speaking] And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Acts 17:30-31 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
