Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Our society takes witchcraft very lightly. I urge you to do a deeper study into this subject than what we will do today. Witchcraft is a serious thing. It has many layers.
The most common are what you are probably thinking; spells, chants, sorcery, astrology, and other forms if divination. Our society, including many Christians, encourage our children to read “literature” and watch movies that have varying degrees of witchcraft in them. It is to be expected from the secular world. However, for the Church to be so desensitized about this subject is quite alarming.
There are Christians that read their horoscopes on a daily basis and think it harmless. They talk about what “sign” they are. The only “sign” that Christians should be talking about is the one that leads to the Cross. God has made it clear in many Biblical examples His feelings on these matters. Here are a few you can look up for yourself; Saul, Solomon, the book of Leviticus, Jezebel, and Israel.
If is unfair and very dangerous to allow and in some cases encourage our precious children to be comfortable with spells, incantations, chants, sorcery, horoscopes, astrology, and any form of witchcraft. It is NOT harmless. It is not only the equivalent of spiritual adultery it is an abomination to God. We must not stand blindly by while our children are becoming less and less bothered by this with each passing generation. I mean think about it, if the world embraces something so widely shouldn’t that be a sign to the Church to be aware.
The world cannot be our guide.
The WORD of the Living God must be our only and FINAL authority!
Witchcraft is more than just what is mentioned above. God also compares rebellion and stubbornness to witchcraft in I Samuel 15:23.
I urge you to pray hard and consistent about this matter. Study the Scriptures about it. Seek God’s Wisdom. He gave you your children to train up in His ways. Make sure you are and not letting the world influence you. Your children need to know that You stand for God’s Truth and what God thinks of witchcraft.
Don’t be foolish and think it’s just harmless “fantasy.” There is nothing harmless or fantasy about witchcraft. The devil is very real. And he wants our children. Remember, the Word tells us that we fight not with flesh and blood, but with powers and principalities in high places. The spirit realm is a very real place and if your dealing with satan’s end of it your playing with fire.
Daddy God, show me more of Your Truth on the matter of witchcraft. Help me to discern what is right and wrong in Your eyes. Help me to protect my children from the world’s influence. Help me to know and recognize the Truth. Lord, I want to train my children up in Your ways. I want my children to know Your ways and understand what you think of witchcraft. Thank you, Lord for loving me and giving me Your Word to help and guide me in this uncertain world. I love You. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
In His Love and Service,
