So we, being many, are one body in Christ,
and every one members one of another.
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.
the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.
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.
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.
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.
