You Desire Power, The Devil Desires You
Lately, I have been watching “A Haunting”. I feel the need to shed light on this because even as you look through YouTube. There are so many professed “ex-witches and ex-warlocks”.
Although nothing is impossible with God. The Spirit has been imparting to me that the devil is crafty.
What the Spirit is showing me is that many continue to lie—being used by Satan. Giving testimonies that are not in line with scripture.
If you don’t have discernment, you can die in your sin. And if you ask why so many are practicing divination, mediums, casting spells, consulting the dead, etc. Take this to heart.
The First Recorded Tactic Used Against Man
“And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3: 4-5, KJV). Do you understand? Satan promised Eve that she could be a “god”.
In this series, I observe that they use many rituals and religious practices that are not rooted in biblical teachings. Catholicism, astral projection, Ouija boards. Even seemingly harmless things like crystals and burning sage. Of which many of us are and have been guilty of.
While performing maintenance on my site, the Spirit spoke to me about the dangers of being lukewarm, while dismissing the “small sins”. “He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations” (Isaiah 66: 3, KJV).
There is no distinction. Sin is sin. As God sees the heart and intent.
Pride Comes in Many Forms
Understand the gravity of this. As the Spirit spoke to me, He told me that many of them have no desire to know Him. They enjoy being popular. Even likes and clicks. As the enemy uses them to prey on others who are spiritually weak.
They crave power. To think that they are special. And the devil will give them just enough power to feel in control.
It is written, “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself” (Galatians 6: 3, KJV). And “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16: 18, KJV).
The Abomination of Desolation
Know this. “And the great dragon was thrown down, the age-old serpent who is called the devil and Satan, he who continually deceives and seduces the entire inhabited world; he was thrown down to earth, and his angels were thrown down with him” (Revelation 12: 9, AMP).
Time is growing short. Many profess the name of the LORD. But choose to be misled. Remember: “Let no one in any way deceive or entrap you, for that day will not come first [that is, the great rebellion, the abandonment of the faith by professed Christians], and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction [the Antichrist, the one who is destined to destroy], who opposes and exalts himself [so proudly and so insolently] above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he [actually enters and] takes his seat in the temple of God, publicly proclaiming that he himself is God” (2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4, AMP).
Time is Running Out
Is it becoming clearer? Many believe that they are “called” as they wrest this scripture. “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your son’s and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:” (Joel 2: 28, KJV).
The Spirit is imparting to me that this will be a warning as God manifests His majesty. As the LORD is showing His power and glory this scripture is also being fulfilled. “And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie” (2 Thessalonians 2: 11, KJV).
“Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all powers and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; (Now pay attention!) because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (2 Thessalonians 2: 9-10, KJV).
Do Not Be Deceived
Let me leave you with a few scriptures because many are playing with God. But nowhere in His word did He make any distinction or compromise in His stance.
And as I give you these remember how the devil always mixes a little truth in his lies. Be watchful. In Malachi, the Lord makes it clear that He changes not (3: 6). And in Hebrews, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (13: 8, KJV).
1) This evil, demonic, activity is as unquenchable as lust. A sick form of deception and manipulation.
“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or daughter pass through the fire [as a sacrifice], one who uses divination and fortune-telling, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, one who casts a charm or a spell, or a medium or spiritist, or a necromancer [who seeks the dead].
Witchcraft is Never of God
“For every one who does these things is utterly repulsive to the LORD; and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God is driving them out from before you” (Deuteronomy 18: 10-12, AMP).
2) It taints, poisons, and corrupts you. “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God” (Leviticus 19: 31, KJV).
and 3) As spoken of by God, they chose this. “A man or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them” (Leviticus 20: 27, KJV).
The devil is crafty, so I am warning you. They will use the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as if He sent them. These spirits have been known to torment and destabilize the individual’s mental and spiritual well-being. Even killing them physically.
Find Intimacy as a Way to Increase Discernment
This is how the Holy Spirit answered me. As you remember, it is not just false prophets who claim to speak on behalf of God.
“I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil ways, and from the evil of their doings.
“Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD” (Jeremiah 23: 21-24, KJV).
Listen and watch closely, to the language that is used. The disrespectful mixing of the incorruptible and corruptible, as if neither is relevant. They mock spiritual warfare. While opening the gates to the ungodly. Recruiting the hurt and the lost with promises of power and gifts. Satan is diabolical.
Always coming from a place of love and in truth!!!
