5 Ways To Identify Witches And Sorcerers (Part 1)
Witchcraft is the use of magic powers, especially evil ones, to make things happen. It is the practice of magic, especially magic; the use of spells. Also, it can be described as the communication with the devil or familiar spirit.
In clear terms, people who practise witchcraft are known as sorcerers (men) and witches (women). Therefore, a witch or sorcerer is someone who has received the spirit of witchcraft.
However, many assume that the operation of witchcraft is limited to Africa. Thus, we feel that people in Asia and European countries are too sophisticated to practise witchcraft. This is an erroneous assumption!
Quite to the contrary, witchcraft operation is present in all the nations of the earth no matter their level of development. Satan is the head of witches and wizards/sorcerers and he has representatives in all the nations of the earth.
The Scriptures is replete with examples of those who practised witchcraft in their days, with the atrocities they committed and how believers could render them useless.
Witches can be easily recognized by their manifestations, acts, and the havoc they wreck on people’s lives. Here are five basic ways to identify them;
Because of the multitude of the WHOREDOMS OF THE WELLFAVOURED HARLOT, THE MISTRESS OF WITCHCRAFTS, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.
The manifestation of witchcraft bears the hallmark of prostitution. A lot of ladies who sleep with men in order to earn a living are witches. More so, the Word of God lends credence to this as quoted from the book of Nahum.
Do not think some ladies are foolish for refusing to practise a dignifying profession except prostitution. A lot of them are into prostitution in order to render the stars and glories of men ineffective.
By implication, I have heard of men who began to experience retrogression after sleeping with certain prostitutes.
These prostitutes do not only destroy great/glorious men but they are also agents of the devil. Once you sleep with them, you open the door for the devil to operate in your life.
Nevertheless, it is not all prostitutes that are witches, but a huge chunk of them are witches. Hence, they work for the devil, their master. Therefore, every man should steer-clear of prostitutes.
If you really want to fulfill your glorious destiny, avoid prostitutes. Also, if you do not want to give the devil a foothold to work in your life, avoid prostitutes.
And to him they had regard, because that of long time HE HAD BEWITCHED THEM WITH SORCERIES.
Talking about Simon, a well-known sorcerer, the Bible says, he had been bewitching the people of the city for so long. To bewitch means to get control over people by putting SPELL on them.
A witch under the influence of witchcraft can compel you to do what you are not supposed to do. I have heard of some husbands who had been rendered useless by their wives’ magical powers.
Besides, those men dare not talk while their wives are talking. Their wives control them. This isn’t natural because a man is supposed to be the head of the home according to God’s Word.
In addition, a sorcerer can have the leadership of a city under his power. In fact, every city has at least a witch/sorcerer who uses his/her power to determine the fate of every city.
That is why it is very cumbersome for churches to grow in some areas. Inasmuch as, the Pastor does not believe that witches exist, they will hold his ministry under their power.
Gospel is the cure to witchcraft. Let’s keep preaching. And every minister of God should know that the devil has agents in every city. So, we must wage war against them in the place of prayer.
Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. HE BOASTED THAT HE WAS SOMEONE GREAT,
On a daily basis, before Simon came to Christ, he would boast of his great power. I believe he must have told them the number of people he could kill if they offended him.
Additionally, he must have told them of how he had killed and bewitched a lot of people with his witchcraft. He boasted a lot! He bragged about his power like Goliath, who petrified the Israelites for forty days.
Simply put, if you see any man boasting of his power. Beware! He might be a sorcerer. Witches are so confident to the extent that they boast of their power, anytime you offend them. Beware! Pray and do not be merciful to them in the place of prayer.
(4) False Ministries
And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain SORCERER, A FALSE PROPHET, a Jew, whose name is Barjesus:
Barjesus, a sorcerer is introduced here as a false prophets. That means he was doing almost what a true prophet could do. But he was doing those things through witchcraft.
Surprisingly, there are agents of the devil masquerading as founders of some Christian ministries. Insidiously, there are churches whose prophets practise shamanism in order to prophesy and wrought miracles.
Be careful before you join any ministry. Pray and be sensitize to the leading of the Holy Spirit before you join a ministry.
(5) Sacrificing Their Children
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.
At some points, witches are compelled by their superiors to sacrifice their children so as to attain higher rank. Manasseh, the king of Judah practised witchcraft. Thus, he made his son to pass through fire (2 Chron. 33:6).
Every Christian should pray against this. May witches never use you to fulfill their sacrifice. Although, this pratice is latent but it is one of the ways through witches can be recognized.
