Are You In Rebellion To God’s Will?

Today, I wish to talk to you about something that irritates me a lot. I know that most people do it unknowingly, but still the practice of Christian witchcraft within the church, even by clergy, is very troubling. Therefore, I want to sound the alarm and alert people to what this error is and why they should stop doing it.

God says,

“And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”

1 Samuel 15:22,23

There are times when we use the things of God towards our own ends. We pray the prayer of faith, not to further God’s kingdom, but our own. When we do this, we begin to stray into the area of Christian witchcraft.

Jesus said,

” Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. “

James 4:3

Essentially, we often determine the outcome that we desire and pray towards that end. Sometimes, when we are really upset, we even pray things that ought not to be mentioned. Here is a truth,

Stop praying against people for your own ends. That type of Christian witchcraft hurts those whom God loves.

Prayer, to those who understand the power we have been given in Jesus name, can become a weapon of destruction, rather than an avenue of blessing.

Stop practicing Christian witchcraft

“And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?  But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives…”

Luke 9:54-56

If you desire to use the power of God to destroy others, like the disciples, you are out of line.

The idolatry of holy matrimony

It is shocking how many men and women, who are bound in bad marriages, pray for the death of their spouses. I had a connection, a very long time ago, who casually mentioned that if her husband passed, then we could be together. Shocked, I told her, “no, that is not God’s will at all!” and asked her not to talk or think that way anymore.

I pondered on that for many days afterward. How can a woman feel so trapped by a marriage that asking God to take her husband home is acceptable? Surely, simply leaving him would be preferable to him passing away. However, women who feel trapped by the doctrine of holy matrimony often think that death would be preferable to divorce. That, my friends, is Christian witchcraft.

Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft

If you ask God to do things that are against His will, you are in rebellion. Trying to use the tools and privileges that God gifted you with to accomplish your own will is witchcraft pure and simple. It matters not your “doctrinal stance”, it does not justify your use of the power God has given you for a purpose other than His kingdom; you are just out of order.

In conclusion, examine your motives for praying against others who name Christ as their Lord and Savior. Make sure that in praying harm upon another child of God that you are in fact in His perfect will. Do not seek to kill whom God wants to save, that is satanic.

Stop handing people over to Satan, that is way above your position in God’s kingdom

Finally, and I say this with all gravity, stop handing people over to Satan who disagree with you. You simply do not have the wisdom or perspective to do that. Paul was pissed off at things He believed were wrong, but you are not even worthy to carry his coat or parchments from Troas. Stop doing evil that your version of “good” may come of it. We all need grace and mercy when we come before the Great White Throne of judgment. Amen.
