I’ve noticed a plethora of reports about the growth of witchcraft in the US recently.
For example, a recent Christian Post report revealed:
The population of self-identified witches has risen dramatically in the United States in recent decades, as interest in astrology and witchcraft practices have become increasingly mainstreamed.
Then it was widely reported that a coven of witches were planning to ‘hex’ US Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh in the New York.
The Christian Post returned to witches yesterday when it carried a report about Kaisi (aka Rev Valerie Love), who describes herself as a practicing Christian and an ordained “minister of spiritual consciousness”
Love, above, broke from the Jehovah’s Witnesses at the age of 30 – she said was a member of the “cult” from the age of four – but now runs the Covenant of Christian Witches Mystery School in Salem, Massachusetts. The school, according Love’s website, was launched to:
Inspire, teach, share wisdom, and support magickal beings in owning and embracing magick, practicing magick and utilizing magick as a path to SELF-REALIZATION.
She says in a recent Facebook video:
On her Enlightenment Circle website, Love also offers coaching programmes ranging in price from $5,000 to $50,000.
My job as a minister of the living God, as an ordained minister of spiritual consciousness is freedom, to set us free … People are in religious bondage because religion told you what to think, what to do. I’m not here to tell you what to think. I’m here to support you in how to think.
Jennifer LeClaire, founder of Jennifer LeClaire Ministries and Director at the Awakening House of Prayer in Florida who has been tracking the Christian witches movement for several years, has warned that the mixing of witchcraft and Christianity is “dangerous” and said the movement is growing.
In this season, I’ve seen a rise of Christians practicing witchcraft. Or maybe they aren’t Christians at all. I won’t judge someone’s salvation, but when people in church release word curses, pray against you, and conduct unholy fasts to destroy you, the fruit of the Spirit is clearly lacking. Galatians 6 lists both the fruit of the Spirit and the works of the flesh. Witchcraft is among them. But there is a higher level of witchcraft that some so-called Christians are tapping into and it’s dangerous.
Christian experts at Got Questions Ministries also warned that:
God takes witchcraft very seriously. The penalty for practicing witchcraft under the Mosaic Law was death (Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 20:27). First Chronicles 10:13 tells us that ‘Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the Word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance.
The ministry explained:
At the heart of witchcraft is the desire to know the future and control events that are not ours to control. Those abilities belong only to the Lord. This desire has its roots in Satan’s first temptation to Eve: ‘You can be like God’ (Genesis 3:5).
Since the Garden of Eden, Satan’s major focus has been to divert human hearts away from worship of the true God (Genesis 3:1). He entices humans with the suggestions of power, self-realization, and spiritual enlightenment apart from submission to the Lord God. Witchcraft is merely another branch of that enticement. To become involved in witchcraft in any way is to enter Satan’s realm.
