The world is divided on the topic of modern-day witchcraft and curses. In some countries and cultures, the spirit realm, especially the demonic one, is as real as our physical world. In other countries, it is looked at as little more than superstition. In America, many believe that science disproves and outclasses many of these practices. It is hard to discern or perceive when the enemy is influencing something if you don’t believe it is possible in today’s world.
Recently, God made it very clear that His Word (the Bible) still very much applies today. This is the time of the Outpouring: God is moving more strongly than ever before. According to scripture, Earth belongs to mankind. God is fair and just: when He moves, the enemy does as well. This means that during the Outpouring of God’s glory, the spirit realm is revealed and experienced more on the Earth, meaning God and Satan have contact with this world more than ever. We must look to the Bible to see what dangers from the enemy may be increasing.
In the Book of Acts, we find the account of Peter in prison. When an angel set him free, Peter went to Mary’s house, where his friends were gathered. The spirit realm and angelic visitations were so frequent that the woman who answered the door thought it was Peter’s angel instead of Peter himself. The Outpouring is on the horizon where signs, wonders, and miracles will be as present in the world as they were in the time of the Book of Acts. Are you ready to discern good from evil?
