Deliverance Ministers: Witchcraft Exists in the Prophetic and the Apostolic Too
Don’t think there’s witchcraft in the church today? Then you might want to reconsider that position, say Pastors Mike Signorelli, Isaiah Saldivar and Alexander Pagani.
A traveling pastor who attends Lifesong Church in Stockton, California, and whose ministry reaches between 6 to 8 million people per week, Saldivar says it’s definitely out there, and that “we have to call out heretical teachings and bad doctrine” that can lead people to hell.
In this video teaching, Saldivar, Pagani and Signorelli give a prophetic warning to the body of Christ in regard to unbiblical teachings happening not only within the church as a whole, but also within the charismatic movement. The three deliverance ministers navigate the complex intersection between spirituality, religion and occult practices and shed light on controversial topics such as the Third Eye, Astral Projection, false prophetic words and more.

Before we delve into Piper’s full response, let’s explore Paul’s words in 1 Timothy 4:1 (ESV). He writes: “Now the Spirit expressly says that, in later times, some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons.”
