*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*WHO IS THE WITCH, WHO IS THE WIZARD?*
Colosians 2:10 *And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:*
*Insight and Highlight.*
There is no power under Heaven that is not subject to Christ's power.
Principalities are real. Witches and wizards are real.
The good news is that there is no power under Heaven that is greater than the power of Christ.
There are evil powers, and the Bible admits so. Eph 6:12 tells us *For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.*
Paul gives us vital information on the kingdom of darkness.
First, he tells us that there are principalities. These are witches and wizards. They dominate and rule the dark world of Satan’s kingdom. They are human beings like us but under the directives of Satan.
They can be family members. It may be hard to believe, but they are. They are all around us, Matt 10:36, so they are witches and wizards with evil spirits embodied in the human bodies. The first thing Satan does is to possess them, and witches and wizards have ranks.
Second, he tells us there are powers.
Through these powers, their victims are seriously impacted. These are in the form of witchcraft and spiritism. In Deut 18:11-12, Moses identified their areas of operation in the form of people who make *.....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:....*
Other notable several spirits through which Satan operates are spirits of infirmities, eg, sickness, deafness, dumbness, blindness, lameness, and mind-controlling spirits.
There are also spirits of the underworld. These are beneath the earth, mostly marine spirit which operate in the seas and under.
No principality operates without an evil spirit residing in him or her.
The witches and wizards operate through the spirits of Satan.
Having identified there are principalities and powers, Paul tells us that these spirits are not seen, but all we see are the flesh and blood whom we wrestle with. Paul wants us to see that the battle is beyond the people we see but against forces we do not see.
Perhaps their greatest strength is how they operate through the air and our inability to see them, except God opens our eyes.
Paul says they operate in our atmosphere through the air and wind.
Paul calls Satan as *..the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:....* Eph 2:2.
We must be aware of the activities of Satan. To ignore his principalities and power is to open up ourselves to his attacks.
Who are the witches and wizards? They are your arch enemies sent by Satan to destroy you.
If, however, you are complete in Christ, you can conquer them through the power of Jesus.
Give your life to Christ today. It is this urgent. The witches and wizards are on the prowl.
Do not be their victim!
Witches and wizards are real, but you can be more real to them through the conquering power in the name of Jesus.
*Call to Word action.*
Col 2:14-15 *Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;*
*And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Witches and wizards are destructible.
Lord, I destroy every principality and power in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
