First we need to break down some barriers that we as children are
brainwashed into believing.
Harry Potter is not sorcery or witchcraft.
Hollywood and fairy tale books both has done their job in brainwashing
Here is some interesting facts to consider.....
In 1976, doctors in Los Angeles went on strike because of the rising
cost of malpractice insurance. All elective and non-emergency surgery
attention were canceled. During that time, 18 percent fewer people died
From all our exposure to unnecessary penicillin through medication as
well as through treatment of cattle and pork, life-threatening bacteria
resistant to our number-one line of defense. In 1960, 13 percent of
staphylococci infections were resistant to penicillin.
Now, 91 percent are resistant to penicillin.
The disaster was the "Elixir of Sulfanilimide" tragedy of 1937 in which
107 people were killed as the result of the use of a solvent,
diethylene glycol, in a product.
Since the law did not require prior testing of drugs for safety, there
was no way to anticipate, or prevent, the marketing of this lethal
Then we come to one of the most abused pharmaceutical drug on the
market today with terrible side effects. It’s a relatively new pain
medicine called OxyContin.
This drug contains a powerful alkaloid derived from opium. It has
replaced cocaine, heroin and ecstasy as the number one killer in the
State of Florida. People suffering from tremendous pain have become
junkies on this drug. OxyContin sales in the year 2000 alone were over
a billion dollars. OxyContin is fast becoming the new drug of choice in
America. The tablets are manufactured in a time-released delivery
system so the mind-altering effects of the opium alkaloid are not
experienced by the users. They are designed to deliver painkilling
effectiveness for between a 12 and 24 hour period. On the street users
either chew the tablets, crush them and snort the powder, or boil down
the tablets and inject it intravenously because it bypasses the
time-released system and delivers a powerful euphoric, heroin-like
punch. Entire towns and neighborhoods are dealing with problems
associated with OxyContin. The Roanoke Times ran a story on August 16,
2000 that reported OxyContin to be the worst problem seen in the
community. “Tazewell County’s prosecutor has charged more than 150
people in the last year with felonies associated with the addictive
painkiller… Tazewell County Commonwealth’s Attorney Dennis Lee called
abuse of OxyContin an epidemic… Andy Anderson, a narcotics detective
with the Pulaski Police Department, estimated that 90 percent of the
people in Pulaski who admit to such crimes as breaking and entering,
shoplifting, forgery or stealing checks said they committed the crimes
to get money to finance their OxyContin addiction.”
Herbal and Drug Companies are basically practicing Witchcraft.
"Doctors who prescribe pain pills to the same person for years are
basically practicing Witchcraft."
If the doctor prescribes a pain killer for years and the pain killer is
addictable then yes the Doctor is practicing Witchcraft. He is
hurting the person
he is helping the person. The doctor has become a poisoner!
Drug Dealers are basically practicing Witchcraft.
Doctors who perform an abortion are practicing pharmakeia!
God warned us about these things because until recently we wasn't
capable of understanding the facts concerning them.
Evidence is found in the Didache, also called the Teachings of the
Twelve Apostles, written about the
year 80 A.D.
This book was the Church's first manual of morals, liturgical norms and
In the first section? two ways are proposed: the way of life and the
way of death.
In following the way of life, the exhorts, "
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not seduce boys.
You shall not commit fornication.
You shall not steal.
You shall not practice magic.
You shall not use potions.
You shall not procure abortion, nor destroy a new-born child.
You shall not covet your neighbor's goods...."
It should be noted that prescription drugs do not heal, and in most
cases simply mask the problem prolonging agony, never approaching the
root cause of
the disease. The sad fact is, most doctors today do not attempt to heal
patients, instead they prescribe drugs for pain management, keeping
patients on a
ending drug merry-go-round. Toxic drug ingredients build up within the
body and eventually cause damage to vital organs which leads to death.
Basically, taking drugs = shorter lifespan.
Narcotics and hallucinogenic drugs were not uncommon in NT times.
For instance, the Oracles of Delphi apparently used *Datura* during
their quests for visions.
This is the scientific, Latin classification of Jimson weed. It
contains powerful alkaloids
(biochemical bases of vegetable origin which include many other drugs,
quite a number of
which have narcotic or hallucinogenic effects: e.g. mescaline, cocaine,
morphine, etc., etc.).
In Carlos Casteneda's books about his anthropological research with a
Yaqui Indian 'brujo'
(Spanish for 'witch', or 'sorcerer'), we encounter Datura being
employed for vision quests.
The sorcerer also uses mescaline, and various other substances.
Now, the majority of people abusing drugs today aren't using the drugs
as parts of deliberate
supernatural rituals, but for 'recreation'.
The supernatural, however, is inescapable whether a person believes in
it or not.
One form of worship today which doesn't seem like religion at first,
but which is very common
and which does in fact have supernatural significance, is Self. People
love pleasures rather
than God. When we are selfish it does no harm to God, it hurts us.
Much drug use today begins as a quest for self-absorbed pleasure, or
escape. The drugs are
not inherently evil in themselves. The evil emerges from unredeemed
hearts and minds as they
commit spiritual adultery.
The enemy tries to fuel these processes along, trying to bring people
psychological and spiritual bondage. Satanists are often involved in
chains of supply,
and they are involved in two ways.
First of all, people covenanted with the evil one are often the actual
suppliers of drugs.
Noticed how it often happens that authorities arrest users, dealers and
but very seldom the actual, original suppliers? They seem 'protected',
and are, by dark forces.

2. SORCERY AND WITCHCRAFT. "Pharmakeia."
"Pharmakon," was a drug
"pharmakeia," the use of drugs.
The noun "pharmakeia" occurs in Gal.5v20. Rev.9v21. 18v23.. "Sorcerer,"
occurs in Rev.21v8.; and "pharmakos," in Rev.22v15.. "Mageia,"
"sorceries," in Acts.8v11.
and "mageuo," "sorcery," in Act8v9.. "Magos," is translated as
"sorcerer" in Acts.13v6,8.;
and the plural "magi," as "wise men" in Mt.2v1,7,16.
Sorcery and witchcraft in Paul's time were very similar to their modern
images of people were made and destroyed, and curses were put upon
people by invoking
the powers of darkness.
In Paul's time, magic, divination, astrology and the occult powers
in Deut.18v10-22., were commonly practised. People were full of fear,
amulets and charms in an effort to protect themselves from witchcraft,
magical spells and the evil eye.
The value of the books on magic burned in the revival at Corinth was

Philip and Paul compelled the Gentiles to believe in Jesus, by doing

A little background on "Pharmakeia" which is also a feminine noun that
can be used collectively,
it references the herbalist of the time who were almost always female.
It was one of the
few businesses available to single women, herbalism was complex so
there was an aura of
secrecy to it. They also were fond of saying incantations or using
symbolic items etc to
increase the "mystery" around their practice. It gave them both power
it would have also increased their incomes and perhaps the more
mystical it appeared the
greater price people were willing to pay for their "potions". These
women challenged the
authority structure of both Paul's church and the society of the time
The ability to heal, poison, abort fetuses, etc. gave them an
incredible amount of power
and would have created a diversion from God and Christianity. So, you
have that aspect of
that term used here.
Later, there are frequent references in church writings (not scripture)
abortionist using the term "pharmakeia". Outside of the church Plutarch
uses the term
pharmakeia in reference to contraception and abortion.
Clement of Alexandria identifies pharmakeia as an abortifacent.
An early church council in the capital of Galatia referenced adulterous
woman who who
avail themselves to pharmakeia for abortion.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
an adjective signifying "devoted to magical arts," is used as a noun,
especially one who uses drugs, potions, spells, enchantments, Rev.
21:8, in the best
texts (some have pharmakeus), and Rev. 22:15.

compares the written texts Phaedrus has brought along to pharmakon, he
describes it as
both a cure and poison.
Paul in his epistle to the Galatians enumerated a concise list of the
works of the flesh.
Contained in that list is the Greek word, pharmakeia. The King James
pharmakeia as "witchcraft" but a more probable rendering is that of
"sorcery" and is so
given by the American Standard Version. Sorcery is far closer to the
meaning of the term.
Pharmakeia (sorcery) is a form of the Greek root from which we get our
English words pharmacy,
pharmacist, and pharmaceutical. Pharmakeia (sorcery) fundamentally has
to do with drugs or
medicine. Originally the word was used only in the sense of medicine.
Plato talked about the
different kinds of medicinal treatment: cautery, incision, the use of
and even starvation. (Plato, Protagorus 354a). In the beginning,
pharmakeia was a medical term;
it had to do with the proper use of drugs.
Later pharmakeia took on an entirely different meaning. The learned
William Barclay says that
pharmakeia began "to denote the misuse of drugs, that is, the use of
drugs to poison and
not to cure. So we read about the law regarding poisoning (Plato, Laws
933 B), and
Demosthenes accuses a bad man of poisoning and all kinds of villainy
This is the beginning of the bad use of the word" (Flesh And Spirit, p.
In the New Testament, pharmakeia carried with it the idea of sorcery,
and black magic. It is in this sense that Paul used the term in
The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia clearly points out that
ideas we attach to 'witch' and 'witchcraft' were unknown in Bible
times, the words
(witch and witchcraft) have no right place in our' Eng. Bible..." (p.
When Paul spoke of pharmakeia (witchcraft KJV) he certainly did not
have in mind
witches on broomsticks, black cats, and silly superstitions.
The Apostle was speaking of sorcery -- the evil abuse of drugs.
The Greek scholar, W.E. Vine summarized the different uses of
pharmakeia in his Expository
Dictionary of New Testament Words. Said Vine of pharmakeia: "primarily
signified the use
of medicine, drugs, spells; then, poisoning; then sorcery." It is at
this point the dark
and grim fact of pharmakeia emerges. Pharmakeia literally is the abuse
of drugs coupled
with the occult. Pharmakeia is a chain connecting drug addiction with

Mercury was among the first metals known, and its compounds have been
throughout history. Archaeologists found mercury in an Egyptian tomb
from 1500 BC. The Egyptians and the Chinese may have been using
cinnabar as a

mercury was used to placate or chase away evil spirits. The alchemists
