WITCHCRAFT DISPLEASES GOD,Disobedience Is As Witchcraft
Who Does God Hate?Is witchcraft against God?
"There shall not be found among you any one ... that useth divination,
or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer,
or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord..."
God tells us in His word several times that consulting mediums, fortune tellers, using witchcraft and sorcery are wrong. God looks at these things as abominations. Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says, “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,or one who casts a spell,or a medium, or a spirit's or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you.”
Another example can be found in 2 Chronicles chapter 33. Manasseh was king over Judah, he decided that he would participate in using witchcraft, sorcery etc. This displeased God. As a result of his sin, God allowed armies from Assyria to take him away. Realizing he was wrong, he asked God to forgive him. God forgave him and brought him back to Jerusalem.
It is very important that we are not ignorant the devils devices (2 Corinthians 2:11). This means we have to be vigilant and be able to recognize things that may cross our paths that represent things concerning the occult. This includes games, books, movies and even things dealing with horoscopes and zodiac signs. Proverbs 4:23 says, “Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.”
Acts 19:19-20 tells us how after seeing miracles of God, the people in Ephesus burned their books of witchcraft and magic and professed Jesus Christ. By burning their books, they were ridding themselves of the representation of their sin and showing faith that Christ would deliver them from it.
If you have participated in these types of things knowingly or not, there is redemption from sin. Jesus died for all of our sins. Truly confess your sin to Him and ask for forgiveness.Everyday, take time to pray and ask Jesus to cover every area of your life.
God wants us to be vigilant.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”: (1Pet 5:8.) It is for these reasons that I desire to reveal to you some important hints about witchcraft. In fact, Christianity is fighting the world
Magic is the impossible thing that one does with the aid of demons.
Demons are the fallen angels whose loyalty are to Satan, the devil who himself is the Chief Demon. Witches are those that have demons as their higher nature that help them to do wicked acts.
The wills of witches are already surrendered to Satan and that make them to do wicked things even when they hurt them and their families.
All witches are wicked because the spirits to help and control them are wicked spirits. Perhaps, the first witch was Eve who ate the fruit of the forbidden tree in order to get wisdom. The wisdom that she got was witchcraft. God was so displeased with the practice of witchcraft that he made His decision to destroy the entire human race leaving only Noah and his household.
However, 1 Sam. 15:22 states otherwise, and its context teaches that if we do not do exactly as the Lord commands for a given situation, then He is flatly not pleased. We cannot fall back on other areas where we think we are pleasing Him.
Scripture makes clear that “disobedience” and “unbelief” go hand in hand. We also know that the kind of belief we must have is trust –also called “faith”– because “without faith it is impossible to please God.” (Heb. 11:6) Therefore, just as unbelief displeases God, and unbelief in His Son denies us entrance into Heaven, so disobedience displeases God and keeps one from entering “His rest”. For disobedience, being the same as rebellion, –in God’s eyes, is just like the sin of witchcraft.
