Idolatry and Witchcraft?

Galatians 5:19-21 (New International Version)

The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Idolatry and witchcraft is intentionaly highlighted among the list of the acts of the sinful nature to stress that these two acts of sin go together. They cannot be split from each other and there is always an evil link between the two. Not many of God's own children know that idolatry and witchcraft are sins that come from the sinful nature. In the pretext of worshipping 'God', the Devil with the control of lying spirits stranglehold in bondage these idolaters and witchcraft practitioners.The lie is that they are still worshipping 'God' but to us the question is which god? God hates idolatry and witchcraft, which is clearly stated in His word.Witchcraft is made to look like these practioners are seeking help of 'God' but actually from which god?They are seeking the help of Satan and the demons .These 'blind' ones are worshipping it knowingly in rebellion or unknowingly.

Except for one's faith on Christ and His works on the cross alone, the rest are all idolaters and witchcraft practitioners if you take your eyes off Him and start promoting 'Money' as above God. If you were to look around and observe as to what they are practising,you will see that all of the others are idols ,especially the worship of 'Money'.However, there are those in this world that claim to be of the same faith with believing in Christ as our Savior and Lord but their claims are not true.The opposite is true. They proudly claim that they do not worship idols.But, do not forget that they believe in witchcraft practices. This is where the deception lies.

In the country that I come from, these same group of people practice witchcraft.That is why idolatry and witchcraft are the same sins of the sinful nature.Though they claim that they do not worship idols but they practise witchraft which is an act of the sinful nature ,equivalent to the sin of idolatry.

People who practice witchcraft can 'work' along with idolaters,worshippers of Money.They seem similar in their sinful nature of fanatism,violence,lies,sexual-lust,greed,coveteousness and all other fruits of the sinful nature.

You may ask, how come they do 'fight' or disagree amongst themselves?This is what Jesus Christ our Lord said of them:

Luke 11:17-18 (New International Version)

Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them: "Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall. If Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? I say this because you claim that I drive out demons by Beelzebub.

Satan's kingdom is doomed for ruin and failure and that is why they can't help fighting one another and bring about self-destruction. Do you see what they normally would fight over?
Money,wealth,power,position,land,boundaries,territories,possessions,commodities,control,supremacy,and anything else to do with this temporary world that does not belong to them. For they can't even create a particle of sand or the air that we breathe what more other things. One of the fruit of the sinful nature is also selfish ambition and therefore they quarrel and 'fight'.

What about counterfeit christianity? Are they also idolatry and witchcraft? The emphatic answer is 'yes.' Counterfeit christianity has to do with seeking the things of the world,Satan's delights and seeking the help of Satan and its demons. Money or mammon is one great idol of the world. Many have gone after it and forgotten God or they may be moving around with a mask to deceive believers of Christ that they too are 'seekers' of 'God'. That is the prevalent deception today,beware! or even the very elect of God will be deceived.

Jesus Christ our Lord has given His believers the authority to trample on idolatry and witchcraft powers. Nothing will harm us.We can demolish these pretension and take captive of thoughts to Christ.

Luke 10:18-19 (New International Version)

He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

I consider idolatry and witchcraft as poisonous as snakes and scorpions that kill but we have been given authority over it and to overcome all the power of the Enemy.

2 Corinthians 10:5 (New International Version)

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Use your authority and defeat the devil today.
