Satanism is the worship of Satan. It originated from USA in April 1966 with Anton Szandor LaVey as its founder. Satanism uses the Baphomet as its trademark and copyright. It has now spread from the USA to other nations where it is influencing many people from teenagers to adults.
Satanists are representatives of Satan on earth. They get instructions from Satan or through his hierarchical order of leadership. The primary goal of Satanists is to get people to worship Satan and to lead many people to hell. Satanists are mandated by their father the devil to kill, steal and to destroy. They are against Christians and they try by all means to hinder the preaching of the gospel of salvation. They also try by all means to stop people from believing in God.
Satanists love wealth, elevation, dominance and power. They can do whatever it takes to get these things. They are puffed up by pride. Surprisingly we are seeing these characteristics in prophets of today and we wonder if they are of God!
witches and sorcerers
Witches and sorcerers are people with mystical powers who practice witchcraft and sorcery. Through divination they can foretell the future. They can prophesy. They can also pronounce a curse or a blessing.
Witches and sorcerers are driven by hatred and jealousy. They can kill not because they want to gain something from the people they killed. They simply kill out of hatred or jealousy. In Shona this is what we call ‘shaisano’. Witches are delighted in making and seeing other people suffer.
They are good at reaping the hard labour of others. For example, you will be surprised to see someone working hard and earning money but at the end of the day nothing is done by that money. On the other hand, you will see someone who is not working at all but is having a lot of money and accumulating wealth. This is a clear sign of witchcraft at work. Witches and sorcerers are good at inflicting sicknesses and diseases on their targets through spells and curses. They ruin people’s lives by causing misfortunes and even death. They break marriages by causing miscarriages, barrenness and household conflicts. They block success and financial breakthroughs in people’s lives. They feel happy to see the people they target languishing in problems and poverty. They do all this out of hatred and jealousy. In short, the heart of a witch is full of jealous.
how people are drawn into witchcraft
Many people today find themselves involved in witchcraft but they do not know how it happened. The answer is simple. In many cases witchcraft is passed on to a person through consulting familiar spirits, fortune tellers, diviners or n’angas/sangomas.
These diviners will give you traditional medicine known as muti to solve your problem. In most cases, the muti given by these workers of darkness will have terms and conditions which are to be observed.
It is through trying to observe the terms and conditions associated with the muti that will cause people to be involved in witchcraft. If the terms and conditions associated with the muti are not followed then the muti will transform into something that will push the owner into deep witchcraft.
In some instances, the muti will start demanding blood at a certain given time of the month or year and you will see the owner of the muti shedding blood. In other cases, the muti will demand its owner to sleep with different men or women at a certain time of the month or year.
They do these evil things because they want to preserve the solution promised to them by fortune tellers, nanga’s/sangomas whom they consulted. There are people today who did not want to be witches or sorcerers but because they visited and consulted people with familiar spirits, they got hooked up into witchcraft and sorcery.
Many people are suffering or dying today as a result of witchcraft which came into their families through a family member who took muti from diviners for personal benefits. Consulting familiar spirits is a detestable thing before God and people should go to God if needing help. There is nothing for free from the devil. If faced with problems we should always go to God not to diviners. Jesus is the answer and He has the solutions we all need.
Some people become agents of the devil through family inheritance. In most cases this is how witchcraft is passed on to family members. In other cases, many people today find themselves in Satanism, witchcraft and sorcery through peer pressure, accepting false doctrines, participating in pagan ceremonies or rituals, love of power, dominance, alcohol, drugs, immoral sex and heavy metal music.
It’s surprisingly evident that false prophets are Satanists, witches and sorcerers in sheep’s skins. They works speaks louder than their words (Matthew 7:15-22).
