Galatians 3:1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified before you? There has been some interest shown in a previous blog on witchcraft on the rise, maybe because Halloween is coming up (which I do not celebrate), so I would like to elaborate on this point. Witchcraft is all over. Some proclaim themselves to be “Christian” witches. Churches practice various forms of this. Now the BIBLE says that this is sin. Galatians 5:19-21 calls it a work of the flesh, Revelation 9:20-21 and 18:20-24 says God will bring punishment because people don’t repent of it, specifically of sorcery. The witchcraft spirit of Babylon (Isaiah 47:9-15) Nineveh (Nahum 3:4) and Jezebel (II Kings 9:22 Revelation 2:20-23) is on the increase and it is the duty of Bible Christians to fight it. First let us look at how it got here. I was born in 1960 so I have a living knowledge of some of this. Next October I will be 60. I told my wife I should write a book called From ’60 to 60 but I am sure someone else already has. First we were raised on television, the one eyed monster, the glass toilet. We had Disney with the sorcerer’s apprentice and Tinkerbell then in the 70’s Escape to witch mountain and a whole lot more. How about Bewitched and Dark Shadows? Then of course there were many Satanic toy, the worst of which was the Ouija board. If you don’t believe these things have a wicked spirit ask 20 people randomly if they have a personal story about it. And of course science told us it was just fairy tales and enlightened people didn’t believe in it. So while the Church slept Satan sowed Hell and the youth of today get on the internet to find out how to cast spells and get possessed by devils. And don’t forget the explosion of dope abuse. Can a preacher bewitch his congregation? Look at Simon the sorcerer in Acts 8:9-13. Can a population be bewitched? Look at how they vote! And no conversation or debate just yelling and name calling.
Now to close. Deuteronomy 18:9-14 and Isaiah 47:9-15 give a list of witchcrafts which includes the horoscope. God hates these. Examine your life your home your movies (especially vampire and werewolf) and please please the beat and lyrics of your and your children’s music! Then read consider and repent at Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and SORCERERS, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
