5. Growth of occultism, Satanism and witchcraft. Rev. 13:1-8, “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given over all kindreds, and tongues, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” John 3:18-21, “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”
Today, man celebrates darkness, fraternizes with evil and celebrates the ungodly. The Bible says the spirit of the anti Christ will come from the sea and it is already at work and at war engineering things. What is the spirit of witchcraft? The spirit of witchcraft is the spirit of intimidation, manipulation for the purpose of control. There has been an intensification of witchcraft activities during the corona virus pandemic lockdown. The target is the true Church because it is only the true Church that is checkmating darkness in the world today. Unfortunately, the Church is getting weaker and weaker. That is why the devil is fighting to take control. The spirit of intimidation, manipulation for the purpose of control played out so much during the lockdown. It is believed the corona virus vaccine will be made mandatory for the purpose of control. Through knowledge the just shall be delivered. The Church must start preparing people for the inevitable. Christianity without character is empty. During the lockdown all the cathedrals were empty confirming the fact that the cathedral is not the Church. The real Church will leave the cathedral behind when the trumpet sounds. It takes character to say NO to satanic pressure. Many countries today are secretly passing legislations to control the populace without their consent.
Eternal rock of ages, most holy God I adore you. Have mercy on me and grant me grace to withstand any satanic pressure to compromise my christian faith in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
