One of the greatest tragedies I have witnessed first hand in the body of Christ are pastors and religious leaders, who either downplay the existence of witchcraft or just outright don’t believe in it. As a result they avoid such topics in terms of preaching and teaching these things to their members and followers alike, which in turn leaves their members open targets for the forces of evil but more importantly causing unnecessary suffering and losses.
Make no mistake, witchcraft cannot compete or even challenge the genuine power of God. Instead witchcraft challenges and takes full advantage of the ignorance of those who do not believe or ignore its existence which the Bible clearly speaks of. In my humble opinion I see it as spiritual mass murder for a religious leader to make the decision not to believe, instruct or blatantly ignore certain sections of the Bible, and insist that his members remain equally ignorant. I found it to be quite interesting when Moses and his brother Aaron went down into Egypt and demanded that Pharaoh release the Hebrew people.
In Moses and Aaron’s attempt to prove that they were sent by God, Aaron threw his rod before Pharaoh, and his servants and it became a Serpent. Scripture clearly says in Exodus 7:11-12 that Pharaoh called his wise men, Sorcerers, Magicians and Enchanters of Egypt (Witchcraft workers) who in turn also cast their rods to the ground and their rods became serpents also. Therefore my friend, if your religious leaders are not educating you about the biblical understanding of witchcraft, then how will you be able to determine or even decipher that whoever is ministering to you or even over you, is not operating under the powers of witchcraft aided by familiar spirits?
Like I have mentioned, I have seen first hand the diabolical subtle hand and evil influence of the enemy, manipulating religious leaders into keeping their congregation from such biblical knowledge. Many of the people that I counsel, in regards to these matters are in fact Christians. The number one question that I am asked during our sessions is how could this happen to me, as a “child of God?” Well, the answer is simple HOW CAN YOU FIGHT WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW EXISTS, YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TAUGHT OR YOU CHOSE TO IGNORE?
If witchcraft is not real, according to some religious leaders, then how do we explain the following scriptures that speak about witchcraft in the old and new testament: Exodus 22:18, Leviticus 19:31, Deuteronomy 18:9-12, Leviticus 20:6, Isaiah 19:3, 1 Samuel 15:23, 2 Chronicles 33:6, Galatians 5:20, 2 Kings 9:22, Micah 5:12, Nahum 3:4, Exodus 7:11, Jeremiah 27:9, Daniel 2:2, Malachi 3:5, Revelations 21:8, Revelations 22:15, Acts 8:9, Isaiah 8:19, 2 Kings 23:24, 2 Kings 21:6, 1 Samuel 28:9, Numbers 22:7, Numbers 23:23, 2 Kings 17:17, Jeremiah 14:14, Ezekiel 12:24, Ezekiel 13:6-7, Ezekiel 21:21-23, Acts 16:16-18, Acts 19:17-19, Galatians 3:1, Isaiah 47:12, Exodus 8:18, Zechariah 10:2, Acts 13:6-11. These are but a few scriptures that speak directly to the practice of witchcraft. Biblical terms such as witchcraft, Divination, Magicians, Magic, Sorcerers, Wizards, Witches, Necromancer, Enchanter, Observer of times, Familiar spirit, Mediums, Bewitch, Charmer, Astrologer, Curses and passing children through the fire indicates the real life existence of the power of darkness, otherwise known as witchcraft that’s praying on the fostered ignorance of the people perpetrated by their religious leaders.
Pastors, religious leaders hear me when I say to you, you are working in concert, unknowingly with Satan and his well organized kingdom by keeping the people of God ignorant of what they need to know, in this case the biblical understandings and teachings of witchcraft which will prevent the many spiritual tragedies that are experienced in your congregations.
God will hold you accountable for preaching and teaching an unbalanced gospel. As a reminder, the Bible speaks of blessings and cursing, good and bad, Angels and Demons, wickedness and righteousness. So why are your sermons only filled with God blessing your congregations with cars, houses, spouses, promotion, seed sowing and the like. However, the people are rarely, if ever, told about the curses of witchcraft operating in their lives, consuming their health, finances, relationships etc. EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE CHILDREN OF GOD? Again, how could they challenge the invisible forces that are oppressing them if you fail to inform them of those forces?
Scripture tells us in Hosea 4:1, that the Lord had a major issue with the children of Israel because there was no TRUTH, NOR MERCY BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY NO KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IN THE LAND. As a result of this, verse 6 of the same chapter clearly says “my people (the children of God) are destroyed because of a lack of knowledge. He further stated that because they chose to reject KNOWLEDGE he has also rejected them from being priest to him. Interestingly enough he said that because they have conveniently forgotten the law of their God he will also forget their children ... Wow! This is the result of a religious leader that preaches or teaches parts of the Bible ... EVERYONE SUFFERS!
My friend, scripture clearly instructs us to study, to show ourselves approved unto God, not your leaders.
