Casting Spells

Numbers 23:13-26 KJV “And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from thence. [14] And he brought him into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a ram on every altar. [15] And he said unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt offering, while I meet the Lord yonder. [16] And the Lord met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus. [17] And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him, What hath the Lord spoken? [18] And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor: [19] God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it ? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? [20] Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. [21] He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the Lord his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them. [22] God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn. [23] SURELY THERE IS NO ENCHANTMENT AGAINST JACOB, NEITHER IS THERE ANY DIVINATION AGAINST ISRAEL: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought! [24] Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain. [25] And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all. [26] But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the Lord speaketh, that I must do?”

Guys, casting spells is real. It’s not just something you see on TV or read about in books as entertainment. King Balak of Moab had a problem. His neighbors the Israelites were growing and prospering. Balak feared one day they would overtake his kingdom. So what did he do? The same thing powerful people and kings today do when they fear certain groups of people: he hired the most powerful person he could find to put a curse (cast a spell) on God’s people Israel.

As the scriptures above state God was with His people as they were faithfully with Him. Hence no amount of spell casting, divination, witchcraft, etcetera could work against them. They were blessed. Do we see just how powerful living in obedience to God is? This was one of Israel’s good moments in God. They were living faithfully to their Lord! Whenever they obeyed God He fought all their battles and destroyed their enemies. Wouldn’t you like to have that same kind of protection and assurance from God in this wicked world today? Then be faithful to God. Don’t play games with Him. Love Him with all your whole heart, all your mind, and all your soul. This is God’s greatest commandment:

Matthew 22:36-40 NET “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 22:37 Jesus said to him, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 22:38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 22:39 The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 22:40 All the law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”

Obedience is truly better than sacrifice. And rebellion is the same as the sin of witchcraft. (1 Samuel 15:22-23) This is why those who rebel against God are susceptible to the influence of witchs, wizards, etcetera. Their power comes from the Devil. But for those who obey God, ‘there is no enchantment or divination against them.’
