Today, we are about to face things we have never faced before in the Church world. Though it is not new on earth, the way it is about to unveil it is. Part of the church's refusal to move on with God into the revelatory realm of the Holy Spirit will, by default, force it into the dark
side. The gray line many have long wondered about has disappeared; it is now either black or white. You are either in or out, and there is no more in-between.
1 Sam. 15:23-24
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
(The verse gives us the definition of rebellion, when you reject the word of the lord. unless the lord has mercy on you you are going down.)
Young's Literal Translation
For a sin of divination [is] rebellion, and iniquity and teraphim or images [is] stubbornness;
because thou hast rejected the word of Jehovah, He also doth reject thee from [being] king.
It is a "foretelling of future events, or discovering things secret by the aid of superior beings, or other than human means." It is used in Scripture of false systems of ascertaining the divine will
Although there are different aspects of witchcraft, when you cross-reference it with words in
the bible, it takes you to divination. So when one rebels against God's word, you are going to do or listen to something else, but that something else is attempting to get revelation or what the devil wants you to do from familiar spirits (Saul didn't kill all the animals nor did he kill the king as God said, he kept the choices one alive and spared the king. He said the people told him to, well people can get you to listen to devils to)
Generally speaking, it denotes the worship of the deity in a visible form, whether the images to which homage is paid are symbolic representations of the true God or of the false divinities that have been made the objects of worship in his stead. That word iniquity has to do with images as well, so you can say when one is stubborn, one began to put themselves up or sees themselves as God, not realizing that you are really honoring the words or images of demons.
In essence, what we are saying is your innermost counsel is no longer the Holy Spirit, but
through rebellion, you have opened the door of witchcraft and have allowed familiar spirits to
speak to you. This is not conjuring up spirits through curses and spells, but you are yielding to the same forces and powers through simple rebellion, that’s refusing to hear God’s counsel.
1 John 2:17
27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
There is a revelatory counsel that walks and talks with you every day and will show you things
to come; rebellion will open the occultic side of that realm.
1 John 2:5
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
(So the love of God in you grows when you don't rebel, so when love cease to be the prime motivator in your life you are stepping away from him, and then you continue to try to access the spirit realm through worship and meditation you will eventually access the ocultic side for you are no longer walking in the spirit but after the flesh)
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. (So we know that we are still walking in him and we know that we know him if we are walking in love and love is doing what he said and not rebel)
King James Version
He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed , and that without remedy.
New Revised Standard
One who is often reproved, yet remains stubborn, will suddenly be broken beyond healing
New International Reader's Version
A man who still won't obey after being warned many times will suddenly be destroyed. Nothing can save him.
The thing that will destroy them is the working of the flesh or witchcraft. Witchcraft is the use
of a person employing satanic power. It is Satan’s way of imposing his will on your will and
enforcing emotions, behaviors, or circumstances on people they would not otherwise want.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning? How art thou cut down, which didst WEAKEN THE NATIONS. They that look upon thee, . . .saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms?”
Rebellion is one of the primary ways that Lucifer is still weakening the nations. You may say,
pastor, what's the big deal? Most don’t even believe in witchcraft; that is exactly the way the
devil wants it. Many do not realize it is on the rise, and they purposely seek out Christians to
snare. Because of the many different denominations that are refusing to move on with God and revelatory truths, they will become easy prey for the rise of Occultism in America and the
Ezek. 13:20), bears witness to certain women who are practicing witchcraft to “hunt for the
souls of men, to make them “fly.” These “soul catchers make them “fly.” “Wherefore thus
saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, (wherewith ye there hunt the souls to
make them fly), and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls
that ye hunt to make them fly.” In verse 18, these women are shown sewing “pillows” (objects
used in association with magical practices) and “kerchiefs” or (magical veils) which they put
over the heads of those consulting them as if to fit them for receiving a response, That they
might be rapt in a spiritual trance above the world. Some believe that the words “your
kerchiefs” are nets or amulets to catch the souls of men. Note the comment of God, “hunt the
souls of My people.”
The word hunting means to hunt down, track down, prey upon, go in search of, quest after, hound, search for . . . Souls, minds, individuals, humans. In other words, witches and wizards “hunt for the souls of my people.” Most people mistakenly assume that witchery cannot act physically or spiritually on a Christian. They unwisely think that being born again automatically protects against any sort of curse, spell or hex, etc., that is sent by people practicing witchcraft. The Scripture points out that Believers are a sought-after target of witchcraft which is hunting (catching or snaring) Christian individuals’ (mind, will,
The world is becoming ripe for the Antichrist, and he wants a spiritual cultic world. Refusing to
do The littlest of truth will open you up to the realm of witchcraft quicker than anything. That
is refusing to retain God in your knowledge to keep his image ever before you. Remember,
rebellion is the same as operating in witchcraft, and people who are around you and close to
you become prey of the same spirit that captured you; most of the time, when it comes to
Christians, it is unforgiveness and bitterness.
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Witchcraft is the worship of one’s self, one’s own words or counsel; when a parent is in rebellion, they cause their children to pass through the fire, the fires of rebellion and witchcraft.
Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year
thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD.
There are those who, through their lifestyle and through their words, have taught rebellion
against the Lord, and the only reason they have not been judged before now is they have
walked in very little anointing. The Father and his mercy will take them out before they step
over into perdition, the place of no return.
What do I mean by walking in very little anointing? Remember when Moses disobeyed God and hit the rock instead of speaking to it? Because of the anointing, he walked in when he rebelled, he had to be taken off the sea. Because of the hour we are in, people will have to be removed if they are to remain saved.
