Is there any such thing as a "good witch?"
We pray in Love that you will read this message, for, "GOD so loved the world, that He gave His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM, should not perish, but have ever-lasting life" (Jn.3:16).
JESUS CHRIST, the SON of the living GOD, died for you and paid the price for all the sins of the whole world. Every past, present, and future sin has been paid for in full by JESUS CHRIST's substitutionary death for our sins.
After HE had mercifully cried out, "FATHER, forgive them, for they know not what they do," HE cried, "It is Finished." The perfect redemption for our sins was completed, after which HE rose from the dead and then to glory, as your present Saviour and future Judge (Lk. 23:34; Jn.19:30;cf. Rm.3-6; Act 10:37-41; 1Cor.15:1-6).
Now it is up to you. An honest conscience tells you when you are wrong (though many rationalize guilt), and bears witness to the Truth written in the law of GOD's Word, the BIBLE.
No one can hide from GOD. HE knows every move we make (Prv.15:3). Though GOD loves us, we cannot come into HIS presence unless we have been cleansed of our sins by the precious blood of JESUS CHRIST!
The gracious miracle is that this completely Holy and perfectly Just, Almighty Sovereign GOD satisfied His own righteous justice through the Divine incarnation, death, and resurrection of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
We are all guilty sinners, and deserve His righteous judgment upon us for our sins, but the Son of GOD bore them for us Himself:
"Who did no sin... Who His own self bore our sins in HIS own body on the Tree, that we, being dead to sin, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye are healed (1Pt.2:22 ;24).
wit, that GOD was in CHRIST, reconciling the world unto HIMSELF, not
imputing their trespasses unto them." (2 Cor.5:19).
Your conception of GOD is manifested by your conception of man in His perfect sight. Supposing that man can gain Heaven and escape Hell on his own merit is deception! All have sinned, and as GOD is pure, no sin will dwell with HIM:
“For thou art not a GOD that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.”
"This then is the message that we have heard of HIM, and declare unto you, that GOD is Light and in HIM is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with HIM, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the Truth. But if we walk in the Light, a HE is in the Light, we have fellowship with HIM, and the blood of JESUS CHRIST HIS SON cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the Truth is not in us" (Ps. 5:4; 1 Jn1:5-8).
GOD will have no fellowship with anyone who has not chosen CHRIST over sin; Light over Darkness:
“There shall in no wise enter into it [GOD's Heavenly City] anything that defileth, neither worketh abomination, or a lie: but they that are written in the LAMBS Book of Life" “ (Rv.21:27; cf. Jn.3:19-21; Ps.5:4,5; 94:20; Hab.1:13).
WITCHCRAFT IN ONE OF THE SINS EXPLICITLY STATED THAT WILL EXCLUDE ONE FROM THE KINGDOM OF GOD – AND WILL SEND ONE TO HELL!
GODS Word makes it is explicitly clear that witchcraft, astrology, sorcery, and other like things are an abomination in HIS sight, and detrimental to man,:
"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, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 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" (Dt.18:10-12).
"Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times (Lv.19:26).
Under the Old Covenant, in which rulers were appointed directly by GOD (unlike now) to uphold HIS holy, just and good Law, anyone known practicing these sins was to be killed without mercy:
"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" (Ex.22:18).
"And ye shall be holy unto ME: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be MINE. 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 (Lv.20:26,27; cf. Dt.13:1-10).
Forbidden practices defined.
Divinations- fortune telling; occultic telling of the future (Acts 16:16-18); Biblical prophesying requires and performs 100% fulfillment: (Dt.18:22).
Observer of times- Astrologer (horoscopes, etc.: see Dt.17:2-5).
Enchanter (conjurer)- A practitioner of magical arts, in which certain words are uttered, whereby the aid of (evil) spirits is invoked in order to produce supernatural effects over people.
Witch (sorcerer)- A user of potions that derive a supposed efficacy from magical spells: professes to possess supernatural knowledge or power through communication with evil spirits.
Charmer- One who practices binding or banning through the use of magical knots.
Consulter with familiar spirits- One who acts as a medium between the living and dead souls by summoning the spirit of a dead person to speak from the earth through the medium.
Wizard- A professed possessor of supernatural knowledge gained through communing with the spirits of the deceased (demons).
Necromancer- One who uses incantations to call up the dead..
DARKNESS OR LIGHT?
Today, anyone who participates in these sins is, in reality, "walking in darkness:"
"In whom the god of this world (satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of CHRIST, who is the image of GOD, should shine unto them" (2 Cor.4:4);
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God” (Jn. 3:19-21).
What you do with the Lord Jesus reveals what you truly and ultimately love and trust in, and where you will spend ETERNITY!
All who are lost, all who will not choose Christ, "shall have their part in the Lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the Second Death (Rv.21:8).
"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication [sexual intercourse outside of, or before marriage, respectively], uncleanness [unnatural, or illicit sexual activity], lasciviousness [lustful, wanton; captivating lust], Idolatry [making any created thing or being your ultimate security and or chief object of affection (rather than GOD), at any time], witchcraft [the use of spells, enchantments; linked to the use of drugs and potions], hatred, variance, [quarrelsome spirit] emulations [selfish ambition in rivalry], wrath, strife, seditions [illegal activity to oppose lawful authority], heresies [sectarian spirit; divisions contrary to established truth, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings [boisterous, loud partying], and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of GOD.
But the fruit of the SPIRIT is love, joy, peace, longsuffering [much patience], gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness [humility; being submissive to God], temperance [self control]: against such there is no law. And they that are CHRIST'S have crucified the flesh [sinful nature] with the affections and lusts (Gal.5:2-24).
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live (Dt. 30:19).
You have a choice to make; one which has eternal consequences. You must choose to either continue on in the darkness of your abominations, or come into the marvelous Light of CHRIST:
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inheirt the kingdom of GOD? And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the Name of JESUS, and by the Spirit of our GOD" (1Cor.6:9-11).
If you do not repent of your evil deeds, and accept His Divine redemption for your eternal soul, then you will be judged by the holy, just and good Law of Almighty GOD, and your sentence will be Hell. As it is written,
"He that rejecteth ME, and receiveth not MY words, hath one that judgeth him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day" (Jn.12:48).
“When the SON OF MAN [Jesus] shall come in HIS glory, and all the holy angels with HIM, then shall HE sit upon the throne of HIS glory: .. And HE shall set the sheep on HIS right hand, but the goats on the left. ... Then shall HE say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from ME, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: .. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal (Mt. 25:31, 33, 41, 46).
"And the devil that deceived them [that's you, if you will not repent] was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever" (Rv.20:10).
Why don't you just give in to GOD, and confess your wrong deeds to Him, as the repentant people in Ephesus did in the days of the Apostle Paul?
"And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: .. So mightily grew the word of GOD and prevailed" (Acts 19:18-20).
Those people got out of their sins before it was too late. Without Christ, you are facing eternal judgment in Hell.
NO ONE ELSE CAN, OR WILL SAVE YOU,
except the SON sent by the FATHER to be the Savior of the world, of all who repent and believe on Him.
"This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that CHRIST JESUS came into the world to save sinners ..." (1Tim.1:15).
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
"Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee" (Is.47:12,13).
YOU MUST TURN OR – BURN
“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" (Lk.13:3).
Know that it is far, far better, in the light of Eternity, to choose to believe and obey GOD rather than sin, and anyone that will keep you from obeying the LORD JESUS:
"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell" (Mt.10:28). "See that ye not refuse HIM that speaketh" (Heb.12:25).
Things that shall come upon thee, “except thou repent”:
"... the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brim-stone: which is the second death" (Rv. .21:8.
In complete and stark contrast with those who have rejected Christ, those that have received and “so great salvation” (Heb. 2:3) through the precious blood of CHRIST, enjoy fellowship "with the FATHER and with HIS SON JESUS CHRIST" (1 Jn.1:3).
This relationship (not “dead” religion) begins in this life (in the midst of persecutions, etc.) and is consummated in Eternity with GOD;
“In THY presence is fulness of joy .." (Ps.16:11)
“And GOD shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Rev. 21:4).
DEAR SOUL, our prayer for you is NOT that you spend this life, and eternity, apart from CHRIST, but that you turn to HIM today, deciding you want JESUS rather than sin, light rather than darkness, and pray to Him to save you, a sinner.
“And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, GOD be merciful to me a sinner.”
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” “... him that cometh to ME I will in no wise cast out.” (Lk. 18:13; Rm.10:9; jn. 6:37)
Here is an example of a salvation-seeking prayer:
Dear LORD JESUS, have mercy on me. I admit that I am a sinner, and I need to be saved. I know that I cannot save myself, but I believe that the FATHER sent You, and that You died for my sins and that You rose up alive. You are LORD.
So I am asking You LORD JESUS, to please save me. Please wash away all my sins, and come into my life, which I yield to You. And please fill me with your Holy Spirit so I can live for you.
Thank you Father God, for saving those who trust in Your Son, the Lord Jesus. Amen.
Jesus said, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
You show this decision in obeying GOD by being baptized under water in identification with your LORD, and following HIM with a Bible – believing/preaching church (despite persecutions). Praise the LORD!
"O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good; for His mercy for ever” (Ps. 107:1)!
