The Poisonous Fruit Of the Flesh, Witchcraft

Witchcraft


"Wait.. Witchcraft? Really? Come on. There is no such thing. Witchcraft is nothing more than a product of Hollywood. It is a thing of Authors and make-believe. There is no such thing. Guess the next thing you will tell us is that you believe in Spooks and Goblins. Oh I know, let's talk about Aliens next. Come on. Witchcraft is not real."

Really? Well, let me ask you this. Would you warn your Child not to open the Refrigerator, because if they do, they will get burned? No. Of course not. Why? Because they will not. It is not Reality. It is not True. Now I would warn my Children to stay away from the operating Stove. Why? Because if they touch the hot Stove, they WILL get burned. It is real. It is Reality. Witchcraft is the hot Stove.

Why would God, waste His time, warning you, to stay away from something that doesn't exist? Why would He warn you against something that is not real? Why would He name this the Sixth "Poisonous Fruit Of the Flesh?" If it were not real, God would not waste His, or our, time.

Is it in Hollywood? Yup. But so is the Devil. Only thing is, the Devil is not some red faced, horned head, tail waging, pichfork yielding, demon from Hell. Truth is, he is the fairest of all the Angels. The first Angel. Truth is, if he were to appear in his natural state, a majority of the the Church would fall at his feet to worship him, thinking he was Jesus returning. Do not be fooled.
"There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or 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: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God."
{Deuteronomy 18:10-13}
So God warns His People against making "his son or his daughter to pass through the fire" {Human Sacrifice, or in modern terms, some see this as equal to an Abortion.} Divination {the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by Supernatural means.} "Observer of Times" {same as Astrology or Stargazing. It is another form of Divination. This also includes Horoscopes or anything that takes the place of God's Direction in your Life.} an Enchanter {A Magician; or Sorcerer. One who casts Spells; or Bewitches.} A Witch {a person who practices Magic. One who deals with Demonic Spirits . It does not matter if they practice Black or White Magic. There is no such thing as good magic.}

A Charmer {To put a spell upon someone; to change things by the use of Magic} A Consulter with Familiar Spirits {A Medium who believes, or wants you to believe, they are contacting the dead,} A Wizard {A Male Witch, a Sorcerer, or Magician, Conjurer; one who uses Magic to have control over another person; also someone who uses Magic to change Nature} A Necromancer {A person who claims they have spoken with those who have died already. Contact is made for Magical and Fortune Telling purposes}

Do you remember the Story in Daniel 5? This is where the phrase "The writing on the wall" came from. King Belshazzar was having a Party. He commanded that all the stolen Golden and Silver vessels, which his Father Nebuchadnezzar, had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem, was to be brought in for himself and those with him could drink out of them. The Party was ON. Dancing, Drinking, Partying with his Princes, Wives, and his Concubines. They were having a GREAT time. They were also Praising their Idols. The Idols, they called gods "of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone."

But then it happened..
"In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.

The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom."
{Daniel 5:5-7}
Imagine being at this Party? When all of a Sudden, a body-less Hand. A Hand without a Body, writes "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin." on the Wall? This is a Supernatural event. Now you could surmise that they were merely Drunk or Stoned, or something to this effect. However, The Writing on the Wall never went away. It was there.

So the King, seeing this Supernatural Event, called for the Supernatural. He called for for Astrologers and Soothsayers. He called for Witches and Wizards. He even made a Oath, that whosoever could read this, he would make a Ruler in the Land, over a Third of the Kingdom.

The problem? No one could read it. So the Queen, who was not at the Party, heard of these things going on. She came in and told King Belshazzar about Daniel and the fact that his Father, King Nebuchadnezzar, trusted in Daniel and found he had the "Spirit of God" with him. So, King Belshazzar called for Daniel.

Then Daniel came and spoke with the King. The King made the same Oath to Daniel. Daniel said, keep it. Give your gifts to others, yet I will interpret the writing for you for free. Then Daniel spoke telling him what his Father did. That God made him King and gave him total Authority. However, he became Prideful and lost his Kingdom. Now of course King Belshazzar knew all this. Yet he did the same thing. Daniel told the King, what the writing said..
"Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. Tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians." {Daniel 5:26-28}
It was in that very night, that King Belshazzar was killed and Darius the Median took the Kingdom.

The Supernatural is REAL. Witches are REAL. Wizards, Mediums, Psychics, are REAL. Oh, of course, I would be willing to bet you that for every real one, there are a Hundred phonies. Scam Artists just trying to milk you out of your money. But there are REAL ones. However, that is most likely NOT Grandma you are talking to. Especially if Grandma was a Child of God when she Passed.

Again, just like you would not waste your time warning your Children against things that are not real, things that cannot hurt them, your Heavenly Father will not warn you against things that are not real, things that cannot hurt you.
"Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God." {Leviticus 19:31}
Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

If you want to tell me, or comment, question, give testimonials, or just say "Hi," the Email is opntalk@gmail.com

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord..
