Witchcraft and the GREAT DECEPTION

Gal 5:19-20 Now the works of the flesh are manifest which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, etc.

I find it curious that in these passages of scripture the Lord does not make a distinction between the various things listed, as far as them being GOOD or BAD. He identifies them as the works of the flesh and that is all. He further tells us that works of the flesh are going to keep us from heaven all together. THEY WHICH DO SUCH THINGS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Yet, here we are as humans, more particularly as Christians, celebrating witchcraft as a harmless extension of so many pieces of our life! Consider the following: We make a distinction between good and bad, and thus justify our involvement with GOOD witches. You can think of some of them yourself. I have seen Apostolic families forsake Spider-man, Superman, Batman, and yet fully accept Genies, Wizards, Witches and Warlocks, all because they are couched in cute cartoons and "DO GOOD". Santa Clause does good, no? Yet he uses magic to travel around the world! He uses magic to come down imaginary chimneys. He uses magic to make toys for our children and, so long as our kids are good for SANTA, he makes toys for them!

From Glenda the Good Witch to the witches of sleeping beauty, we are inundated with magic. Now, I know that THE WORD MAGIC DOES NOT EVEN OCCUR IN THE KING JAMES BIBLE! Yet, witchcraft, witch work does! The Warlocks in Egypt could make snakes appear on command. God knew the hold that kind of trick held on that nation, so God made Moses' staff become a greater snake.

There have always been false miracle workers in the world and the Devil is the father of it all. What better way to get folks to believe that witchcraft is just a word, than to couch it in a cartoon or build it into a story where only magic and witchcraft could do good, solve a problem, or send someone back home? Remember how Dorothy got home? Magic slippers. Oh, you say, that's just a story! Really, Did you know 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. (DEUT. 18:10)....

How many just check their horoscope "for fun"? How many of us watch those programs filled with the undead? How many of us watch Christmas specials filled with Christmas "magic"?

WHAT'S THE POINT you ask?.....Just this....the bible does not at any time make a difference between good magic and bad magic. Magic is magic is magic. Witchcraft is witchcraft whether it gives us wings to fly to neverland, or restores a Christmas tree to beauty! The devil uses that to get our minds distracted. To take us away from reality and couch his witchcraft in a cute story, to convince us it's not so bad....and it WORKS! How are you reacting to this post so far? Hurt, angry, defensive, supportive? Well, there you go!

I put it to you that you either believe that this is the endtimes and you are going to be holy and ready for Christ's return, or you do not and will not! There is no middle ground. WE ARE AT WAR! You either accept that and sacrifice, or you don't and won't! This is the kind of preaching we need more of and that is being pushed off! Don't believe me, go to some of these facebook groups and see what is being posted.

I don't expect anything from this post, except that you examine yourself and those around you. Are you prepared to sacrifice for Jesus and the truth? Are you prepared to look at those you love and tell them "It's not just a cartoon to you?"

Is it a coincidence that Disney is called THE MAGIC KINGDOM? Please Christian friends, stand up to this cartoon couched evil's some facts you may not know (or want to hear) but that you can find for yourselves.....(witchcraft is as rebellion)...

Were you aware that many, many Disney cartoons depict scenes of witchcraft that children would never be exposed to in any other way, at least at such a young age? When Disney put a wizard's costume on Mickey Mouse, and the Magick Wand in his hand, they embarked upon a totally new, and corrupt, course! When Mickey waves his wand, and causes "magic" to happen, that is witchcraft. When Mickey causes things to fly through the air, that is called Levitation, which is witchcraft.

Probably the most blatant example of Disney witchcraft is the movie, "Bedknobs and Broomsticks". The star of the show is Angela Lansbury, who plays a spinster in England during World War II. When she is asked by the British Government to take in 3 young children who had been removed from London, she is already an Apprentice Witch, and is striving to learn more about "The Craft". I was stunned as I watched the movie, as all sorts of witchcraft was graphically depicted, from Levitation, to spells that changed people into animals to spells that brought to life inanimate objects, to an ancient spell from Ashtaroth. According to the Holman Bible Dictionary, "ASHTAROTH (ash' tuhrahth) is the plural form of Ashtoreth, a Canaanite goddess of fertility, love, and war and the daughter of the god El and the goddess Asherah." Therefore, Disney portrays in a very favorable light one of the Canaanite goddesses for which God brought physical judgment upon Israel, because He was so angry of their idolatrous worship!! Congratulations, Disney, you have just encouraged our children to think kindly of Ashtaroth, a fake goddess of Antiquity whose worship by the Israelites provoked God to physical judgment of the entire nation!

Most of all Disney cartoons, including those of our English Fairy Tales, contain enough witchcraft poison to ruin the minds of our precious children!! If you do not believe me, just rent a few of them and see how many times spells are created, how many times objects fly through the air, how many times 'special power' is summoned to solve the problem. It seems as though Disney has been getting very creative and bold as the years have progressed. In the promotional trailers for 'Hercules', I can spot repeated examples of when witchcraft is used, both on the White Magic (Good) side and on the Black Magick (Evil) side. Remember, Disney almost always employs the White Magic vs Black Magick witchcraft for their plot, while most people think they are still looking at the Good Guys with White hats versus the Bad Buys with Black hats of the Western movies. But, of course, the Western movies never, ever employed witchcraft on either side to attempt to win the battle.

Christian parents, I challenge you to rent a few of these Disney movies with this idea in mind, and you will be absolutely shocked at how many, many times witchcraft is fed to your young children's minds!!!


FACT: Michael Eisner, Chairman of the Walt Disney Company, Michael Ovitz, President of the Walt Disney Company and Joe Roth, Chairman of Walt Disney Motion Pictures, all serve as members of the Hollywood Supports Board of Trustees. Hollywood Supports is a pro-homosexual group whose focus is to promote the homosexual agenda. The Disney-endorsed group aims to tell companies how to form homosexual employee groups and provides a "Sexual Orientation in the Workplace" seminar.

FACT: Disney helped promote the 6th annual "Gay and Lesbian Day at Walt Disney World". Disney has allowed the homosexual organizers to portray Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck as homosexual lovers; and Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck as lesbians.

FACT: Disney sued a kindergarten for painting Disney characters on the wall of their child care facility. However, Disney took no legal action to prevent the "Gay Chicago Magazine" and "Gay Day at Disney" WebSite from using Disney characters to promote the "Annual Gay & Lesbian Day at Disney World." The cartoons even use the copyright script of Disney's name.

FACT: Disney has extended company health benefits to live-in partners of homosexual employees (the policy does not cover unmarried heterosexual couples who live together).

FACT: Disney president Michael Eisner is quoted as saying he thinks 40% of Disney's 63,000 employees are homosexual.

FACT: Disney has the largest gay and lesbian employee organization in the entertainment industry.

In Love,
