Dear beloved: Yesterday's mailing discussed witchcraft in Haiti. Witchcraft is serious business as we will see in God's word, God warned the children of Israel in the Old Testament, and Paul warns the Galatians in the New Testament. In Deut. 18:10 God says," There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, v11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. v12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you. v13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. v14 For these nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the Lord your God had not allowed you to do so." And again in Lev.19:31 Do not turn to mediums or spiritists, do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.
In Galatians 5:19 Paul tells the Galatians, " now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, v20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissentions, factions, v21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."
Witchcraft is serious business and the punishment for it is separation from God and eventually eternal separation as Paul points out. If you are looking at astrology charts, or other types of divination, or if you have Harry Potter books or tapes in your possession, get rid of them and ask God' forgiveness for your rebellion. If any of your ancestors practiced witchcraft or divination, ask God to forgive the iniquity of your ancestors. Disney channel also has many children's programs now following the Harry Potter theme of wizards, witches, and spell casting. Do not let your children watch it, and ask God to forgive you if you have been letting that into your house. Clean out your house of any and all witchcraft or sorcery or divination books or tapes.
Witchcraft in Haiti is highly refined and evolved from tribal Africa. It is all about control of people and events, and is mixed with other religions, primarily Catholicism. It involves lots of blood letting, eating live animals, drinking blood and blood sacrifices, sex orgies, human sacrifice including child sacrifice and dedication of children to satan, voodoo dolls and spell casting of curses of sickness and death. It has had a firm grip on Haiti for centuries. No wonder God warned us about it! Pray for the people of Haiti, that the true light would come into their life and they would see the one true living God. John 1:4 in Him was life, and the life was the light of men. v5 and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. Pray for the people here in America, there are cities here in America that are saturated with witchcraft, places like New Orleans and New York City where there are many Haitian immigrants. Pray for the men in the prison who are involved in Wicca, which is a bona fide religion in the Kansas prison system. God bless you as you pray this day, in Christ, Jim
