2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. (2 Corinthians 4:2)
The word occult means hidden, covered, concealed or secret. The secrets of the occults are known to those who are the leaders or organizers of the occult.
This simply means that they know exactly why they formed it. Unfortunately, most people who end up in the occult just go along with its practices and beliefs but do not know the truth behind its foundations.
The practice of witchcraft can also be categorized as occult involvement. Many people use witchcraft, psychical, metaphysical, and occult powers, whether directly or indirectly, for the purpose to control, dominate intimidate or influence the life of someone else, to their detriment.
Witchcraft is outright rebellion against God and His word. It uses evil powers from the kingdom of darkness to carry out its intentions. Spells, curses, evil incantations, hexcrafts, jinxcrafts, soothsaying, fortune-telling, palm reading, tea leaf reading and the like are all forms of witchcraft.
10 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. 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
According to Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Revelation 21:8, witchcraft or occult practices are an abomination to God and all who engage in such practices will be judged by Him. Many people do not realize that consulting with witches, psychics, palm readers and the like, causes a demonic curse to come to their lives. Not only are the witches cursed, but those who seek their counsel are also cursed.
This curse is carried out by a demonic spirit assigned to the individual’s life as soon as they depart from the presence of the witch. They may have left the home or dwelling place of the witch but they have now attracted a demonic spirit which is assigned to wreak havoc in their lives. It is not God’s will that we seek from the demonic realm of darkness what He is willing to release to us from His Heavenly, Divine Kingdom. Serving the devil and his kingdom will bring curses on your life. Serving God and His Heavenly Kingdom will bring blessings and prosperity to you. (John 10:10)
If you have practiced witchcraft or have consulted with someone who practices witchcraft, pray and ask God to forgive you and to have mercy on you. In His word He reveals that it is not His will that any should perish but that all should repent, turn from these wicked practices and come into the saving knowledge of Jesus, the Christ.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
PRAY THIS PRAYER…TO BREAK THE CURSE OF WITCHCRAFT OFF YOUR LIFE!
Father, in the name of Jesus, the Christ I repent for every wrong thing that I have done. I ask that you forgive me and cleanse me from every sin of witchcraft. I renounce any ties to the occult or to any such wicked practices and ask that you would set me free, in Jesus name! I decree and declare that from this day forward that Jesus, you are Lord and Savior of my life!
