1 John 2:15-17 NET “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, 16 because all that is in the world (the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the arrogance produced by material possessions) is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away with all its desires, but the person who does the will of God remains forever.”
I remember a song by The Temptations called, “Ball Of Confusion.” In it they described the crazy state of the nation and the world. I hear another similar song title playing in my head. It’s called, “It’s All An Illusion.” In it I would describe all the hocus-pocus performed in the world today. But where would I start seeing that the whole world is steeped in witchcraft?
When I first became a believer I had a mentor who told me that everything in this world (EVERYTHING) is cloaked in witchcraft. What he was talking about wasn’t exactly the crap we see in movies though there is some truth in these. He was sharing with me the true meaning of witchcraft: DECEPTION. I didn’t know what he was saying then but oh how his words make plenty of sense now! Everywhere you look there is deception. Everywhere you turn there it is. But isn’t this present world system ran by Satan the devil who is a deceiver?
Revelation 12:9 NET “So that huge dragon – the ancient serpent, the one called the DEVIL and SATAN, WHO DECEIVES THE WHOLE WORLD – WAS THROWN DOWN TO THE EARTH, and HIS ANGELS along WITH HIM.”
Yes, the devil is deceiving, misleading, and bewitching THE ENTIRE WORLD! Why do you think the whole world is so jacked up? Why do you think no matter how much the nations talk about peace and security they can never attain it? Why do you think so many children go missing every year and nobody seems to be able to stop it? Why do you think there is hardly no real love in the world today? That’s right, the devil with the help of his cronies (fallen angels) has put his spirit in the minds and hearts of the average human being.
Ephesians 2:2 NET “In which you formerly lived according to THIS WORLD’S PRESENT PATH, according to THE RULER OF THE KINGDOM OF THE AIR, THE RULER OF THE SPIRIT that is NOW ENERGIZING THE SONS OF DISOBEDIENCE.”
Interestingly people talk a lot about spiritual energy these days. But if you are living in disobedience to God the only energy that is energizing you is the spirit of the Devil, plain and simple. I know you’ve been told there are many paths that lead to God. But reality says there are only two paths, and they don’t both lead to God. There’s only two energies; two spirits to choose from, God’s, or the Devil’s. Did you really think the devil would tell you the truth? He’s a deceiver! He’s like a magician. He uses sleight of hand. There is no truth in him. (John 8:44) He uses human beings that he makes rich and famous like Oprah who teach this many paths to God garbage. It’s all a lie. It’s an illusion that will damn your soul eternally if you believe it. There is only one way to God. Jesus Christ boldly says:
John 14:6 NET “I AM THE WAY, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
It’s quite understandable why folks in the occult can’t stand the Jesus Christ of the Bible. He destroys all their illusions and lies. He exposes what they’ve been taught is not light at all, but darkness and deception (witchcraft). Many who were into metaphysics, meditation, yoga, tarot cards, horoscopes, the zodiac, etcetera found out they were being hoodwinked by the devil. These folks have repented. They now have the true light which is Christ.
It’s interesting that no matter how well you serve the devil he cares nothing for you. How many entertainers who were into witchcraft are now dead? How many of them died young? How many of their deaths were suspect, or made to look like accidents? That’s right, big daddy (Satan) used some of his other goons to murder them when he was done with them. Satan treats all of his kids like sanitary napkins: once it’s used throw it away. And so many are still lining up to sell their souls for fame and fortune. 😳 They can’t see it’s all an illusion. If Michael Jackson and Prince could talk today? And they were arguably two of the greatest entertainers ever in the devil’s world system! What would they say to you if they could talk? What were they both trying to say to the whole world right before they died? Look it up. Did they both know they were in deep trouble, and something bad was about to happen to them right before they died? Do your research. But also look at how their lives ended regardless. Satan cares nothing for those he skillfully uses! 🤔
I encourage you to join the winning team before it is too late. Get with the real Father; the real God, not just of this world system, but of heaven and earth!
John 1:12-13 NET “But to all who have received him – those who believe in his name – he has given the right to become God’s children 13 – children not born by human parents or by human desire or a husband’s decision, but by God.”
John 3:16 GNT “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.”

Revelation 13:16-18 KJV “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
I won’t be surprised if one day you can be sued for not reporting to work (to your job). Or even arrested for that matter. I won’t be surprised if one day there will be repercussions for not answering your cell phone when someone calls you. That’s right, if you ignore the calls of those who are trying to control you your credit score will suffer or something like that. How dare you not answer when they call! 😠
The employer employee relationship seems a bit one-sided. The employer’s position is, “We are your god. Worship us or you and your family can die and go to hell!” It won’t be a surprise to me if we find ourselves saying, “No!” more often to our employers being that the day is coming when no one will be able to buy or sell unless he/she receives the mark of the beast. Your job or business is related to your finances. Your employer, fellow employees, and business associates will (or already do in some way) have the mark. They will not sacrifice their buying and selling power for faithfulness to God. On the other hand you and I must be willing to do just that. We possess something far greater than all the money in the world and we know this! 😁
As employers become more and more greedy, wicked, and unreasonable (and they will) we will have more serious decisions to make. Remember, our finances; our buying and selling power, is attached to our jobs and businesses. When we look at what’s happening in the commerce world today whose cause are financial institutions promoting? God’s or Satan’s? Clearly Satan’s. As this increases you and I will have to make good decisions. Even if those good decisions feel bad momentarily. Beware. And remember:
Matthew 6:24 HCSB “No one can be a slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot be slaves of God and of money.”
Don’t let anything take you by surprise. Satan will use his system to throw everything at us including the kitchen sink. But:
Romans 8:18 KJV “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 NIV “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
1 Peter 4:12-13 NIV “Dear friends, DO NOT BE SURPRISED at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.  But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.” 😃

Mark 6:1-3 GNB “Jesus left that place and went back to his home town, followed by his disciples. On the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue. Many people were there; and when they heard him, they were all amazed. “Where did he get all this?” they asked. “What wisdom is this that has been given him? How does he perform miracles? Isn’t he the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Aren’t his sisters living here?” And so they rejected him.”
What did Jesus do wrong? Nothing. Yet people rejected Him and still do. They hated Him for no good reason. They could not figure out why He was so different. ‘How can He do miracles?’ ‘Where did he get all this wisdom from?’ ‘Isn’t this the lowly carpenter? The son of Joseph and Mary?’ ‘He’s changed!’ Instead of further investigating their questions or simply rejoicing at all the good Jesus was doing they hated Him for it. This proves that these people were truly evil at heart. Just as evil as those who are offended by us no matter how much good God does through us. But didn’t Jesus say it would be this way:
John 15:20-21 NIV “Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.  They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.”
“WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?”
Isn’t that what we hear? “You think you’re better!” Funny we’re accused of thinking we’re better than others when we don’t feel that way at all. We believe what the Bible says about all human beings:
Romans 3:10 NIV ,”As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one.” ‘
Ecclesiastes 7:20 KJV “For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.”
Romans 3:23 KJV “For ALL HAVE SINNED, and come short of the glory of God.”
We know that ALL have sinned and fall short of God’s glory. We are no better. We’ve just been shown mercy by God because of our belief in Jesus Christ who is the forgiveness for our sins. 😃 You think it’s because our accusers know we have something special that they are offended by us? The same way they knew Jesus had something special and hated Him for it? Could it be instead of us thinking that we’re better deep down inside they think that we are better and hate us for it? Might this create a certain jealousy within them? The same kind of jealousy Cain felt towards his brother Abel when he saw that God favored him? 🤔
The real question is not, “Who do you think you are?” We know who we are. We are children of Almighty God! Lord of heaven and earth! And guess what? You can be God’s child too! By accepting Jesus’ sacrifice for the forgiveness of your sins! By being born again by the Holy Spirit you too can become God’s child and receive the free gift of eternal life! 😃
John 3:16 NCV “God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.”

Luke 4:5-8 KJV “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.  And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
“Hi, can I borrow your Body? I want to enjoy the human experience through you; inside of your body. If you let me I’ll make you rich. Do you wonna be a movie star? A rapper? Or a famous politician? You just say the word and we’ll make it happen for you. My boss (Satan) runs this whole world and we can give it to whoever we want. Just invite us in to live inside of you. Give me your body and I’ll give you the world.”
Who would accept such an offer? Think about it; resorting to following the dark side to make your dreams come true, you have to be really hard up and desperate. Nothing in life must be working. Jesus knew His purpose in life. He had much to live for and even more to die for. The salvation of the human race rested on His shoulders. Hence He turned down the Devil’s offer and chose to live and die for you and me. How many people do you know would give up being king of this world to die for folks that don’t even care about or know them? Jesus is special. And His death gives all of our lives meaning and purpose if we accept Him. 🙂
Demons seek to possess us not to enjoy the human experience through our bodies. They offer pleasures as bait in order to use us, and turn us into tools that can be used in their warfare against God. Yes, as you live this life solely for pleasure you have been recruited as an enemy of God. This happens to many people unawares.
When a demon possesses you you are their vehicle. You are not calling the shots. The car doesn’t drive itself, the driver of the vehicle (or demons) do. They make you think you’re making all the decisions but you’re not. You are being manipulated by dark forces you have often unknowingly given yourself over to.
It’s all a trick. The devil doesn’t care about giving you fame or fortune. Just as the devil didn’t care about making Jesus rich and famous. The trinkets demons offer us are just bait to get us to open ourselves up and invite them in, yes inside of our bodies. Sounds like a science fiction movie? Sounds like invasion of the body snatchers? Only remember that these things about evil spirits were written in the Bible way before Hollywood was invented. Where do you think they get all their movie ideas from? That’s right, the Bible. They owe God lots of copyright infringement money. 🤔
Luke 11:24-26 KJV “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.  And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.  Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”
