Increase of Overt Evil & Occultic Practices
Exodus 22:18 states: Do not suffer a witch to live.
Not only will there be the rise of evil in the land, and witchcraft, but also the rise of perversion And God does not want His people to be ignorant as to what is coming. There will be a stark increase in evil, witchcraft and the occult in these last days. More than anyone has ever seen before. Strange ailments and phenomena will occur to random people, and it will no doubt be streamed back to someone practicing witchcraft. Some on purpose with evil intent, and others just experimenting. The Lord revealed to me in revelatory format and by words (during prayer time), that there will be much witchcraft in the land and it will become more overt, trending, and extremely popular. Gone will be the days when people warned against it. Even the most unsuspecting person will dabble in it.
The Lord spoke plainly that there will be two types of witches that the body of Christ will have to contend with: “Good” witches and Bad witches. People will be tempted to approach the good witches to solve problems that doctors can’t seem to solve, or to take revenge on someone they deem deserving of evil punishment. The bad witches will be those who plot against saints to prevent the advancement of God’s kingdom. They will set up traps for men of God to ensnare them, try to shut down churches, and attempt to attack “certain” men and women of God by various, nefarious means. This is not even touching Christian or prophetic witchcraft, which is an oxymoron or misnomer, but only that which is in the world.
In 1692-1693, they held the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts. They also had many other witch trials throughout different continents for several years, especially between the years 1400-1782, Medieval time periods, where they were burned to death at the stake.
The Inept Church
Some in the church will not know how to solve these problems that arise, seek out help from doctors, run to other churches, and though they realize their situation is not natural, and a supernatural dilemma, they will not know how to go about solving it. Some will be even tempted to ask a “good” witch for help after finding no help from their local church. Spiritual people, such as the “sons of Issachar”, (1 Chronicles 12:32) and those referred to in 1 Cor. 3 and Heb. 6 will be able to shed light on situations. And many will flock to men/women of God who are true witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ, who appear to have the power to break these spells. There will be a remnant set aside for God who will break curses in Jesus’ name, perform deliverances and healings. They will reset the lives of many in Jesus’ mighty name!
At first, it will all seem innocent. It will start with morning routines, night routines, “mantras”, declarations and easily able to integrate into someone’s life. Then people will be taken down a dark path, like a winding road, until they reach a place where they are completely ensnared unable to get themselves out of it, except by the power of God. There will be many professionals seeking to “explain it away” with counseling, medications, and general advice.
Proverbs 7:25-27 and 9:13-18 way of death, he did not know the dead were there…..
Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
26 For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
27 Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.
“Whoever is simple, let him turn in here”;
And as for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
17 “Stolen water is sweet,
And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18 But he does not know that the dead are there,
That her guests are in the depths of hell.
The Witch of Endor
There will be men and women of God whom God has not spoken to, or those seeming impatient, lost anointing, lost favor, appear not to have heard God in some months, days years, and instead of remaining faithful, they themselves, being quite deceived, and others knowingly walking out of the will of God, will seek out diviners, soothsayers, witches, false prophets, for a “word from God” on certain situations. Though, they will have been warned by TRUE men/women of God, they will go their own way, falling away from the knowledge of the truth and disconnecting from the Head, and seek after diviners, just as Saul in Old Testament, sought the witch of Endor once he realized God had stopped speaking to Him.
1 Samuel 28:6-7 KJV
6 And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets.
7 Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit,that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.
There will also be a remnant supernaturally protected by God whom the enemy will not be able to touch. This is when the church, once sifted, will emerge the true men and women of God, whom satan will not be able to touch. Those doubting, those living a life of sin, those cowardly, will set themselves up to be ensnared by the evil one. They will need to stand in their evil day. To stand with their armor on, repent of their sins and come into a life of holiness. This is the season and time when holiness will be most integral, because each decision will be weighed in the balance of his own eternity. God has set eternity in the hearts of men, and they will realize they must fear God, fear man, choose life, or death, a life of sin or a life of holiness. They will realize though the sentence against their evil deeds are delayed, (Ecc. 8:11) they make themselves a prey on a daily basis with each decision of the flesh, against the spirit. The hosts of darkness seeking to solidify their stronghold on them. Moreover, those walking in the spirit, and following after righteousness will be divinely protected by God.
“And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”
2 Timothy 2:26 KJV
Because you have patiently obeyed me despite the persecution, therefore I will protect you from the time of Great Tribulation and temptation, which will come upon the world to test everyone alive.
Revelation 3:10 TLB
Seek the LORD [inquire for Him, inquire of Him, and require Him as the foremost necessity of your life], all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments; seek righteousness, seek humility [inquire for them, require them as vital]. It may be you will be hidden in the day of the LORD's anger. Zephaniah 2:3 (Amp Bible)
The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
Proverbs 18:10 KJV
TRUE WITNESSES FOR CHRIST
MEN & WOMEN OF GOD who carry the true anointing of God will be highly sought after and seek to duplicate themselves with other’s who align with their purpose and vision to prevent burnout. It will be integral that they protect themselves from burnout and not find themselves taking on the “Moses” mentality. They will need to locate their 70 elders (Numbers 11:16-25) or their 7 men filled with the Holy Ghost & wisdom (Acts 6:3 KJV), so they’ll be healthy enough to carry on the work.
As time goes on, most righteous people will find themselves vexed daily by the things in this world, due to its excessive perversion and look faithfully for His appearing. It is only the blessed hope and their daily fellowship with Christ that will keep some souls from becoming discouraged. Many will determine that upon Christs’ return, He will find faith on the earth!!!
