I am going to lay out for everyone what I have seen and read in a particular church, not just any church but a mega church that is linked to many churches, big and small, throughout the nations. Even your church may be linked to them, look into it if you find this post true.
In the bible we are given commandments and statues on practicing witchcraft. We can read in Deuteronomy 18 and in Leviticus 19. Please read these chapters in full, but for this post I will only post particular scriptures.
Deuteronomy 18:10-13 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
A Necromancer is someone who practices magic and can talk to the dead by raising them from the dead or by summoning their spirit. Summoning their spirit is the same or similar to a failure spirit. You can read about this in Samuel 28, when Saul was rejected by God, King Saul sought after a witch that could summon the prophet Samuel.
We can also read that this practice is still occurring with Witches but also in the church.
A current practice of Witches, they will take a doll or a poppet and go to a grave site and chant or pray for the spirit to come forth and inhabit the doll. If a Witch needs a “boost” or they need the spirit to perform a certain task for them they bring the doll out.
I watched several videos of people in the church going to gravesites and perform something called “Grave sucking”. It is when a member from the church will go to a dead person’s grave site and lay on the tombstone or the ground of the dead person and call the spirit forward by “Jesus name” so they can receive the spirit of the dead. When I first watched this, I knew this was wrong. But I had thought, well maybe it’s just a couple of young kids being dumb or they were misguided…Misguided was right. Not only were these young men practicing Necromancy or Witchcraft but the leaders of the church were too!
The difference between the two accounts mentioned above with the Witch and the church leaders, is the witch is invoking the familiar spirit into a doll while the church leaders and members call the familiar spirit into themselves! Church members are actually being guided by these familiar spirits.
This is not the only witchcraft practice that is being performed in the church. But for the sake of keeping this short I will just stick with this for now…
So you may be wondering who and what church is doing this, this is just crazy!
Well the name of one of the churches is called Bethel out of Redding California. They were introduced to this practice by John Crowder (which teaches Contemplative Spirituality, Supernatural Christianity, How to Operate in Trances (wow really?)). On Bethels Facebook page they say, “Of course, Crowder did not originate this practice. It has been popular in the Word of Faith movement for many years. Benny Hinn used to do this a lot at Kuhlman and McPhereson’s graves”. Wait, What??? You’re telling me that Benny Hinn also practiced Witchcraft? Yep!
So I have left you with 3 different groups here that practice witchcraft within the church. These are leaders that have big followings, millions! Millions of people within the church has been exposed to false teachings and to witchcraft! Not only are they exposed to it, the members are now practicing it.
What does the Lord say about those who practice Witchcraft?
Leveticus 19: 31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.
Leviticus 20: 6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
Leviticus 20: 27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
This is part four of my recent posts on false teachings. This will most likely be my last post on false teachings and Witchcraft within the church. So I want to leave you with encouragement if you are one that is or has been deceived.
God is merciful and is waiting for you to come back into his fold. Just repent and dig into him. Meaning, seek God through his word, prayer and worship. Do not look to the world for teaching. Jesus told us he is sending us a helper, which is the Holy Spirit.
I am praying for all those that are deceived or maybe deceived.
Blessings Brothers and Sisters!
The last post I left off with was reading 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 and Mathew 24:4-28. Basically it talks about the great delusion. In this delusion, even his Elect may be deceived. Let’s think about this for a moment…What might happen that could cause Gods children to be deceived? I believe it is false teachings, signs and wonders. I don’t think it would be a blatant lie. It would have to be something hidden, something slightly twisted. A little truth mixed with a lie. Let’s remember for a moment how Satan deceived Adam and Eve. He told Eve a lie disguised in truth. He said, “Surely you won’t die.” In a physical sense we know that they didn’t die, but in the spiritual they did!
Recently I came to a knowing there are many, many False teachers/Pastors and prophets. Now I knew of this because God had shown me this in dreams. But I didn’t have Gods revelation on the dreams and words until the other day, as I had mentioned in the previous post. When this was revealed, I couldn’t help but to say to God, ‘I have been so blind…Forgive me Father. It was all right in front of me and I couldn’t see”. I believe that God allowed me to go through this for his glory.
Mark 8:15-18 “Be careful”, Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod’. They began to discuss with one another the fact that they had no bread. And Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you discuss the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet see or understand? Do you have a hardened heart? “HAVING EYES, DO YOU NOT SEE? AND HAVING EARS, DO YOU NOT HEAR? And do you not remember?
Meaning of the yeast By Mano Alves:
Yeast represents both negative and potentially positive things here- sin, corruption and evil and also those who spread God word or represent God. Yeast also represents growth.
Yeast is a very small substance so if you become even slightly corrupted and conform yourself to the ways of the Pharisees or of the sinful world beware of this for yourself and for others especially if you are preaching the gospel which is what Jesus’ disciples would be doing because their teachings and practices could make man grow into something wrong and corrupted. It also means do not lead others astray through false teachings or practices. One small substance which is yeast or one man can lead many- those who eat the bread, astray. For yeast (the preacher) is responsible for making other things grow, other things which are larger or more numerous than its original self (people in quantity). So Jesus is warning His disciples here of their responsibility towards Him and His true word and true practice and representation of it to themselves and for others.
I want to share with you a dream that I had, it was previously posted to my blog, but now I know what God was saying to me, to the church.
DREAM – False teachers, A blind people
My husband and I were at church. We were sitting in the back left pew (we normally sit in the middle pew on the far right side). We were both standing and it was during worship. There was a new women with brown curly hair on stage leading worship. In my dream I had the impression she was a visitor to our church and she was going to lead worship and study. When all of a sudden my husband walked to the outside of the isle and started yelling a warning to everyone about this women on stage. He was circling the congregation and repeating the same thing over and over. He had to speak over the music because the worship team kept playing the music. In my dream he was speaking to everyone a prophetic warning about false teachers. We were then at the end of service. Some members of the congregation wanted to talk with my husband so I went out side of the church. I see a long bus, I stepped onto the bus to take a look. The bus had a driver’s seat. A one person seat to the right. A little further back there was one bench seat that span from one side of the bus to the other side. I noticed the lady that was leading worship was on the bus and I asked her why there were only these two seats on the bus. She told me that one was for a man (in the dream she did give me the name of the person. He is someone that many people looked up to in our church. He recently left church to hit the streets to spread Gods word) and she said the bench seat was for whoever. She started to drive off with me in the bus as I was still standing. I told her I did not want to go, that I want to be with my husband. I told her to let me off the bus. When I kept persisting she finally let me off the bus. I was alone, it was dark and I was outside of a house that my husband and I will be moving to shortly. I walked into the house and was looking in all the different rooms. In my dream I felt a sensation like I was not alone in the house. I felt a dark witchcraft presence. I continued looking and noticed that the same lady was with me in the house. She was not with me in a physical way but in spirit only – I saw her like a ghost. End of dream.
- My husband represents Gods warning to the church (prophetic voice).
- The one seat on the bus represents leaders and teachers in the church. People believe that these are true servants of God but they are being led by demonic spirits.
- The bench seat was for whoever believed the false teaching.
- Me stepping onto the bus just to take a look, are those Christians that are not fully involved in the false teachings or prophesies but are opening the door to these spirits.
- Spirit of Witchcraft represents the false teachings, such as occultism, spiritualism, witchcraft teachings in the church. Read Deuteronomy 18:10-12, Deuteronomy 13:1-5, and 1 Timothy 4:1.
Meaning: The driver of the bus is a demonic spirit, directly behind the spirit are leaders of the church. These leaders are listening and being guided by these lying tongues. Directly behind the leaders is the congregation or listeners of the false teaching. This demonic spirit is upon false teachers and prophets. These false teachers and prophets are leading Gods people into false doctrine. We, the church must discern the spirits that plague the church. If we do not, the spirit will follow us and take us on a dark ride, where we are alone void of God. Many of the people in the congregation will not hear the warnings of the prophets. They will keep singing and praising a false God. Only a few will hear and take heed to what God is saying to the church.
This was a warning not only to me, but this is also a warning to the church. If you consider yourself a Christian, this warning is for you.
We must make sure we are not following blindly. We may have been taught or told something that we took at face value (even learned from our infancy) but didn’t match up that teaching to the word. I would like to encourage all to not just go along with the crowd (even a Christian crowd). Study the word for yourselves. The Holy Spirit is our teacher, which is a gift from God through Jesus Christ.
OK, so I wanted to get this out. I have lost much of the information that I had been doing research on (I forgot to save a document). So I am going to stop with this for now. I have to do the work again to ensure we are getting the correct information out.
Lord willing my next post will have to do with False teachings and teachers associated within New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). There are many false teachings in this one group (there are also false prophets and healers associated with this). I have posted a couple of web sites that have extensive research associated with exposing false teachings, healings and prophecies. I have not viewed all the material on their pages, so please use discernment and scripture in all things.
- Trace Hayter on you tube. If you are on her Home page you will see a created playlist, False teachings.
I want to leave you with a thought that I have about mainstream Christianity. I have noticed that much of what is taught anymore is self-love and self-desire fulfillment. I have also noticed that we, as Christians are replacing God with ourselves. Anyway I will touch up on this a bit more in the next post.
I would like to give a thanks to Matt for help on editing this post!
