Many people wonder is magic real and the answer is yes. Both Christians and unbelievers should run from witchcraft. Don’t listen to people who say that magic is safe because it is not.
God hates both black magic and white magic. White magic is supposed to be good magic, but there is nothing good that comes from Satan. All types of sorcery come from Satan. He is a master deceiver. Don’t allow your curiosity to lead you to do magic spells.
Satan will say, “just try it for yourself.” Don’t listen to him. When I was an unbeliever I’ve seen the effects of magic firsthand with some of my friends. Magic destroyed some of their lives.
It is powerful enough to kill you. It is powerful enough to drive you crazy. Magic opens people up to demonic spirits. More and more it will blind you and change you. Never dabble with witchcraft. It comes with a price.
Magic was used to imitate God.
Exodus 8:7-8 But the magicians were able to do the same thing with their magic. They, too, caused frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.
Exodus 8:18-19 But when the magicians tried to produce gnats by their secret arts, they could not. Since the gnats were on people and animals everywhere, the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” But Pharaoh’s heart was hard and he would not listen, just as the LORD had said.
There are demonic forces in this world.
Ephesians 6:12-13 This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world. For this reason, take up all the armor that God supplies. Then you will be able to take a stand during these evil days. Once you have overcome all obstacles, you will be able to stand your ground.
Magic perverts the right ways of the Lord.
Acts 13:8-10 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him. And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
Wiccans will not inherit Heaven.
Revelation 22:15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
Revelation 9:21 Furthermore, they did not repent of their murders, of their magic spells, of their sexual immorality, or of their stealing.
People who put their trust in Christ turn away from their sorcery.
Acts 19:18-19 And many who had become believers came confessing and disclosing their practices, while many of those who had practiced magic collected their books and burned them in front of everyone. So they calculated their value and found it to be 50,000 pieces of silver.
Satan tries to make white magic seem OK.
He attempts to boost your curiosity. He says, “don’t worry it is perfectly fine. It’s not dangerous. God doesn’t care. Look how cool it is.” Don’t let him trick you.
2 Corinthians 11:14 That does not surprise us, because even Satan changes himself to look like an angel of light.
James 1:14-15 Everyone is tempted by his own desires as they lure him away and trap him. Then desire becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin. When sin grows up, it gives birth to death.
Simon the former magician.
Acts 8:9-22 A man named Simon had previously practiced sorcery in that city and astounded the Samaritan people, while claiming to be somebody great. They all paid attention to him, from the least of them to the greatest, and they said, “This man is called the Great Power of God!” They were attentive to him because he had astounded them with his sorceries for a long time. But when they believed Philip, as he preached the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized. Then even Simon himself believed. And after he was baptized, he went around constantly with Philip and was astounded as he observed the signs and great miracles that were being performed. When the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had welcomed God’s message, they sent Peter and John to them. After they went down there, they prayed for them, so the Samaritans might receive the Holy Spirit. For He had not yet come down on any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then Peter and John laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. When Simon saw that the Holy Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money, saying, “Give me this power too, so that anyone I lay hands on may receive the Holy Spirit.” But Peter told him, “May your silver be destroyed with you, because you thought the gift of God could be obtained with money! You have no part or share in this matter, because your heart is not right before God. Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that the intent of your heart may be forgiven you.
If you know people who are into magic, then warn them and stay away. Submit yourself to the Lord. Messing with the occult is serious business. Scripture continuously warns us about witchcraft. Satan is very crafty. Don’t let Satan deceive you just like he deceived Eve.
