“Witchcraft/Sorcery/Seducing Spirits”

Post by MaMaZ on Tue Jul 05, 2011 8:10 am



Hi to all was browsing the web and I came across this study concerning the above heading I found it enlighten I pray this truth quickens you as well... Peace

When we think of witchcraft, we think of black pointed hats, black cats, spells, potions, crystal balls, tarot cards & etc., but why is witchcraft/sorcery/seducing spirits taught about in our Father’s Holy Word?


I Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Galatians 5:19 & 20 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Revelation 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

The words witchcraft/sorcery/seducing spirits mean: to whisper enchantments, spells and seductions; to bewitch and take dominion over another’s mind or spirit; to seduce with flatteries and charisma; to cause to go astray from the Truth; to put out of wits; to astound; to fascinate by false representations; an impostor or misleader; to take control of one’s mind with drugs (prescription misuse and illegal); to make of no avail in the Kingdom of God here on earth.

After witnessing a group of intelligent and kind Christian people fall under the influence of one person in a Bible Study Group, we could not ignore the fact that witchcraft/sorcery/seducing spirits are realistically among us. This person could hardly mask their true disdain for the hosts of the group or its members, but one fawning insincere compliment on someone’s Biblical knowledge turned the receiver of the compliment into a smitten and seduced minion of the seducer. They were eager and adamant to please and to do the bidding of the seducer by verbally attacking the hosts of the group. The seducer was attractive and charismatic enough to the opposite sex to use that for their advantage in the seduction, but surprisingly showed no interest in any one person, showing again their contempt for the very people they were seducing and their intention to seduce all with which they came in contact.

It is very instructive for our spiritual wisdom, maturity and knowledge to see that evil cannot hide itself very well or for very long, if we are using mature spiritual eyes and ears and not carnal eyes and ears to determine good from evil. We must all examine ourselves to see if we are under another’s spell and forever stay on guard for our soul’s sake and for our service to our Lord. We must watch and discern when these seducers expose themselves to us by the evil that comes out in their words, attitudes, facial expressions, lack of peace and joy and the resentful jealousy and anger they have for those who are not seduced by their influence. What you are witnessing is the total absence of the Kingdom of God (Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit, Romans 14:17).

Galatians 5:20& 21 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.

We believe witnessing this experience was to teach us how those possessed with evil, seducing spirits can truly bewitch and control others. We need to learn and heed the lessons we are taught in God’s Word on this subject. We are to try (test for peace, joy and righteousness) the spirits of all we encounter in this life. I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. We are not to give heed (accepting their dominion over our spiritual minds, because our minds belong to Jesus Christ!) to those who want to seduce us with common interests, intimidation, charisma, flatteries or the tickling of our ears with false teachings.

I Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

We must listen to and not kick against our Shepherd and Teacher, Jesus Christ, as He pricks our minds with guidance and instruction into Truth. If we will not obey His pricks, but choose to idolize someone else’s approval, admiration and acceptance, then we have truly been bewitched and seduced to make us of no use in the Kingdom of God here on earth. We must "stay on watch" over our own souls and our service to our Lord and His Truth, just as we have been instructed by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Great reminder of how easily we can be swayed from the truth. Good word for all us of to ponder on.

Love in Jesus,
