There are Witches among us!

541038_10150740390737355_70630972354_9536214_1726706235_nFor rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king. 1 Samuel 15:23

When you think of a “witch” don’t you see a kind of “hag” figure…the wild scraggly hair, long nose with a wart, a high pointed hat and a broom stick on which she is riding high in the sky? If you asked a child in grade school to draw one that is the picture you would have. You would be in shock if I told you that someone in our congregation was a practicing witch! If I said that they were actively using witchcraft so powerful that it had entrapped whole families in our own church, wouldn’t you think that was terrible? Yet we ourselves might just be that person!

There is a form of witchcraft among us it is called rebellion! The prophet Samuel says that rebellion is like the sin of witchcraft, why do you think he said that? A witch casts spells and summons spirits to try to make people do what they want, to alter the natural, to take authority that they have no right to take using deceit and lies. Rebellion is your attempt to control your circumstances independent of God, to make your own rules regardless of what the Word of God has to say about anything. Rebellion uses disobedience, disharmony and disunity to gain or maintain control of a situation. Either way when you’re trying to rule from “I can,” rejecting any notion of “God can” you are operating in the wrong spirit. When you do that, you’re becoming one with the enemy!

One of Satan’s best tools is a “wedge”, the tool that separates churches, friends and family. Don’t fall into the sin of witchcraft by trying to always be in control, but don’t ALLOW yourself to be controlled by anyone but the Spirit of God only! “Not doing what God tells you is far worse than fooling around in the occult.” 1 Samuel 15:23

I know you would never think of yourself as being a witch, but if you are trying to control anyone or their circumstances then YOU are operating in that very spirit. If someone is trying to control you, then THEY are operating in that spirit. Haggai 1:5 says this: Now therefore thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!”

Maybe we need to take stock of our own attitudes and see if this rebellion lies within our own mind!
When you keep thinking about something that has happened to you in your past whether it is abuse or bad treatment of any kind, it gives the person that did it to you the continued power to control your life. You can be free of them when you give everything to God and allow it be covered in the Blood of Jesus, Who died so that you could have freedom. 1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care on Him for He cares for you.

Study the Word of God so that YOU will not slip into rebellion of any kind. I repeat, give all your life circumstances to Him!

  1. Very well written topic for today. I like your points & your info to back up your thoughts. Your Scriptures really help establish your line of reasoning. It shows that you have given some deep thought to this one. (not that you don’t the others you post) This lays it out in really simply terms anyone can understand. Well done. When using this topic in Bible studies believe me one can get some really almost unpleasant reactions to your words. You almost always know the reason for the confusion is someone is looking at this statement in child like eyes instead of spiritual ones. The word “witch” always draws a quick response from people, especially Christians. .And, most of the time the response in a negative defensive manner. Proverbs reminds us not to respond until we know the all the facts involved.so we won’t seem foolish. And I think that is what happens so often. Then as a good teacher one has to make amends to offset hard feelings. It has been fun teaching these kind of topics in Church. Love it. God bless & have a great day.
