Oh the amount of time i would spend here.
Anonymous said: So how exactly do you worship Jesus through witch craft? I am not trying to be judgmental if it sounds that way, I'm genuinely curious as I am a Christian who is interested in witch craft. Lots of love to you! :)
Thank you for your question dear anon, It’s amazing to receive messages from fellow Christians! c:
The answer to your question is rather hard to describe in words. What I’m about to tell you is only my own vision of things, another Christian Witch could tell you something completely different. That’s why you really need to pray and ask God to guide you to the path that pleases Him.
Witchcraft is a way for me to make my prayers in a more ritualistic way; the candles, incense and other “magical” items are only a way to focus, they are there to symbolize my intention, which is to worship the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Also, I do not practice every type of witchcraft, some practices are against our Lord’s will and must stay forbidden. An example would be communicating with spirits or deceased people. Jesus said that we need to leave the dead with the dead, and the living with the living. Fortune telling and divination is also something that shouldn’t be practiced, for only God knows what the future holds for us, and He forbid us to try and read it. When I use tarot cards or my pendulum, I only use those tools as guidance/advice for the present, just like if I would read a psychological book for example. I leave the future to God, He will reveal to you what He wants to be revealed, we need to have faith in Him.
Another important thing that I would like to mention is idolatry. Now I don’t know what type of Christian you are exactly, but it is very important to always address Jesus/God only. Working with any other “divinity”, or spirits or angels or whatever you want to call it, would also be against God, He is the one and only God. There are multiple passages in the bible that talk about that too. One of them would be John 14:6 where Jesus says: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Now my intention is not to offend anyone who would read this answer, Christian or not. I am simply sharing my beliefs in regards to what the bible teaches and what I have learned over time. I do not force my beliefs into anyone and I respect whoever would have a different vision of things over this subject.
The last I would say is: whatever you do, do it in Jesus’ name and for His glory.
If you have more questions or if you want me to explain something I said with more details don’t hesitate to ask me! c:
Lots of love~!!
Hmm. Your views are actually pretty similar to mine and some other Christian witches~ and you’ve actually helped me define this in a way that was a little hard for me to word (with the whole making prayers ritualistic and symbolic of my faith and stuff).
I agree with you about the dead as well- I think the dead should be left alone (but if they are trying to contact you and they hail Jesus as their Lord and savior then to find out why they’re coming at you wouldn’t be too bad, if you’re purposely upsetting their rest that’s pretty douchey).
There are smoe differences though, one being my definition of idolatry- the worship of false idols. God gave us our guardian angel and has all His angels ready to help us and protect us down here on the ground level and take care of other things like death, relationships, etc. that can also help guide us under God’s will. I’ve seen many work with archangels, their guardian angel, saints, etc. That isn’t idolatry because it isn’t worship, the angels and saints definitely don’t want to be worshipped, it’s just God’s helpers also taking time to teach us some things, pray for us, help us and protect us under His watch and approval. (And be careful when you say this because it definitely will offend the hell out of Catholics who pray to saints if you assert that this is how it really is when they believe differently and so on.)
Also with divination, I view it differently. I used to think divination in itself was bad for the reasons you do, but they’ve changed. Instead, divination with spirits outside Godis bad because they could either tell us something false or something we aren’t ready to hear yet. The way I see it, asking God a question about the future isn’t necessarily bad because if we aren’t read to know He won’t answer and He’ll NEVER lie to us.
But that’s my take on this stuff! I always just kind of tell God my thought process and ask Him to correct me and show me the proper way if I’m wrong. In the end we can only just do our best.
So yeah. That’s where our views differ. Anyone else have differences/similarities as a Christian witch? It’s interesting to see where we might agree or disagree ^-^
Faith is such a touchy subject, and my intention would never be to offend anyone, my apologies to anyone who might have been offended, like I said in my first answer, those views are only implying myself and I am not forcing it onto anyone as the only/ultimate truth. I am only human. ^-^
As a protestant I do not believe in saints, people who are dead stay dead. I do believe that God surrounds us with angels who can protect or help us under God’s orders, but I have a problem when it comes to calling upon “archangel [name]”. Like for example is someone calls upon archangel Michael. Just like for the “cult” of the saints, for them to be able to hear everybody’s prayers, no matter where they are, and be able to act upon those prayers, the saints and angels would need to be omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. However those attributes belong to God and no one else. The only one who can intercede to God for you is Jesus, that’s why I do not believe in working with anyone/anything else but Jesus as the only intercessor. “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:5) But of course, I respect anyone who thinks differently, I’m only expressing what I have come to understand/believe.
As for asking about the future, I believe that using “magic” tools to read the future isn’t really the right thing to do, but again that view only applies to me. However I don’t exactly have a problem to ask God to reveal things to us while reading the Holy Scriptures, like to have a prophecy for example, which would sort of tie with knowing the future. I have faith that if God wants me to know something about the future, He will reveal it to me. I’m just not exactly for using witchcraft to read the future.
I agree with you when it comes to just talking to God, letting Him know our train of thoughts and then just asking Him to correct us and bring us back on a path that pleases Him. We’re only humans so of course we make mistakes, and like you said, in the end all we can do, is do our best for His sake.
Again, those views only apply to me, so do not take anything I say personally. I’m just giving my opinion. To each his own beliefs and views, and I respect each and everyone of you, Christian or not. ^-^
