In League With Sorcery

Posted: July 13, 2013 in Demons, Paranormal, Witchcraft


God hates anything to do with sorcery, witchcraft, or magic. They are devilish and pagan, representing two of His enemies – the devil himself and those who follow him.
God’s civil laws for His nation Israel prohibited any involvement in witchcraft activities.
He condemned enchantment (Ex 7:11,22; 8:7; Lev 19:26; Deut 18:10; II Kgs 17:17), which is employing magic or sorcery to foretell the future or bring power to an action.
He condemned observing times (Lev 19:26; Deut 18:10,14; II Kgs 21:6; II Chron 33:6), which is considering some days more lucky than others through watching the clouds or other natural phenomena or astrological timing.
He condemned divination (Deut 18:10; II Kgs 17:17; Jer 27:9), which is foretelling future events or by discovering what is hidden or obscure by supernatural or magical means; soothsaying, augury, prophecy.
He condemned charmers (Deut 18:11; Isaiah 19:3), which is one who uses spells and enchantments, or who has magic powers; an enchanter.
He condemned necromancy (Deut 18:11; I Sam 28:11-14; I Chron 10:13; Isaiah 8:19), which is communication with the dead.
He condemned familiar spirits (Lev 19:31; 20:6; Deut 18:11; Lev 20:6,27), which are devils in league with persons to assist them in sorcery and witchcraft.
He condemned astrology (Isaiah 47:13; Jer 10:1-2), which uses the movements of heavenly bodies to foretell the future or call forth action.
He condemned stargazers (Isaiah 47:13), a branch of astrology for foretelling the future.
He condemned monthly prognosticators (Isaiah 47:13), which is to know or tell of (an event, etc.) beforehand; to have previous knowledge of; to presage; to foretell, predict, prophesy, forecast. An astrological or astrometeorological forecast for the year, published in (or as) an almanac.
He condemned witches and their craft (Ex 22:18; Deut 18:10; II Chron 33:6).
He condemned wizards, or male witches (Lev 19:31; 20:6,27; Deut 18:11).
He condemned sorcerers, those who practice sorcery; a wizard, a magician (Jer 27:9; Mal 3:5; Rev 21:8; 22:15).
