Witches, Warlocks Are Actually Looking for God’s Power

by | Feb 7, 2019 | Spiritual Warfare

We live in a world of spiritual warfare and false religions. People have gone astray from the word of God and sought out other powers. Satanism, witchcraft and occult practices are on the rise, and in most bookstores have more space allotted for books than the Christian genres.

When you think of witches, warlocks, voodoo priests and Satanists, you should know they’re looking for power and love. They usually get coerced into false practices and divination through being a rejected child, thrown out on the street or having someone show them love like they never had before. Yes, some are raised, and some make conscious choices to participate in occult practices, but some are simply looking for love. They are looking for the same love you are looking for, the love and acceptance of people, to be liked and acknowledged.

Being a spiritual warfare minister, I have seen many of these people who throw curses are truly looking for love and power but are caught in a trap of evil. I believe they are seeking the same love and power we are looking for; they just don’t know it is the love and power of God they desire. As Christians, God has given us a spirit of love and power, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and self-control” (2 Tim. 1:7). We want to exude love to everyone we come in contact with, and we want to see God’s power through the demonstration of healings, miracles and deliverance.

Unfortunately, the people caught up and seduced into evil practices were found by a Satanist or occultist first. If we the church would get outside the walls of the church and exude God’s love and power in the streets, secular community and the marketplace, perhaps we could find these people before they are seduced into serving false gods and cursing Christians.

Even so, as Christians, we must realize their curses have no power over us. Instead of the church embracing and loving these people who are caught up in a false identity, we run in fear from them or are uncomfortable being around them. As I said before, they are looking for love and power, and the church has the ability to show them the love and power of Christ, but we don’t. I believe when we see a person in a mall whom we can tell is serving another master, or a witch or warlock comes into our meetings to try and disrupt the service, we cower in fear of the unexpected instead of realizing what the Scripture says, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

We need to arise and take our rightful place and position in the kingdom of God. We have been given authority, and when we speak out and declare out through prayer, our words are prophetically assigned, can target a spiritual realm and produce results. We cannot produce results while in fear; we will only further reject those who need to be accepted. When we are living an obedient, disciplined life, full of worship, prayer and the Word, those curses have no power. They only have the power you give them because you open the door to fear and timidity. Next time you see someone operating differently than you, take a step out in faith and try and exude the love and power of God. Perhaps you’ll eventually lead them to Christ and bring them into the kingdom of God, where they can experience true love and power. {eoa}
