People want power. Magic is a form of power. But it is wrong.
Magic, or witchcraft, takes many forms–“black” (where people openly worship the devil), or “white” (where witches pretend to do good but are still working with the devil). Magic includes Wicca, ouija boards, horoscopes, palm readers, tarot cards, spell casting, seances, and more. All of these things are against God!
God is Holy! True power comes from His love through the LORD Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
God hates magic, because it’s a lie (Lev. 19:26, Jer. 14:14, 2 Tim. 3:9). The devil is the father of lies, and he uses magic to keep people away from the true power—Jesus.
But when people understand the love of God—through Jesus dying on the cross for us and giving us a wonderful life—they don’t want to practice magic any more! They turn to God and are saved and delivered, just like the people in the Bible in Acts 19:19 (AMP): “And many of those who had practiced curious, magical arts collected their books and [throwing them, book after book, on the pile] burned them in the sight of everybody.”
Many people wrongly believe magic is good. How can you help them know the true Power of Jesus’ love?
