Attempting to exercise control over another person is witchcraft and it’s always perpetrated by those who don’t even have their own life in order. Jesus calls them hypocrites and if they don’t repent, they are 100% guaranteed to be in hell (Matthew 7:2-5). “Witchcraft” is a soul damning sin (Galatians 5:19-21). All “sorcerers” are as sure for hell and the lake of fire as if they were already there! A sorcerer is anyone who uses drugs or anything else in order to control another person – to kill them, to manipulate them, etc.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and SORCERERS, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Revelation 21:8
“For without are dogs, and SORCERERS, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” Revelation 22:15
Seeking to have or to exercise dominion over others, over their faith, is witchcraft!
“Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.” 2 Corinthians 1:24
Individuals are required to submit to God Himself first and foremost.
“And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.” 2 Corinthians 8:5
Servant leaders are to edify other believers and never seek to control, to exploit them for their own self-serving agenda.
“For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:” 2 Corinthians 10:8
God gives authority to truly God fearing men who will never seek to the “destruction” (de-struct, tear down) of His people but rather for their “edification” (building them up in Christ).
Saints, let’s beware of the controlling people in ministry. Make no mistake, undue control is witchcraft. Yes Jesus addressed this very witchcraft in Revelation 2:6, 15…. the Nico-laitans. Nico means to conquer and laitans means the people….. conquering the people through positioning oneself above them supposedly by title, position, etc.
BEWARE of the manipulating evil workers who would dare use against you a past sin you’ve already been forgiven for. GOD is our Judge and He is merciful, gracious, and ready to forgive! (Psalms 86:5, 15).
“Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” Romans 8:33-34
Church membership today is nothing more than a device of wolves to corral and exploit the people! There’s no biblical justification for it.
