“And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?” - Isaiah 8:19.
Some people go to the extent of using witchcraft to torment and even kill their fellow human beings. The media have reported cases of those who took part in killing other people's children but refused to give up their own, resulting in their being persecuted by other witches. At that stage they start running helter skelter for help. But who can cure anyone of spiritual powers but God Himself – when the person involved is determined to turn a new leaf? Some years ago a woman who complained that her husband used their only child for money-making ritual jumped into a canal located behind Babalola Market at Mushin, Lagos. After she had been dragged out a newspaper report quoted her as saying that “she would rather die than bear the pains”. We must point out that witchcraft is a creation of the devil to cause destruction in the earth. Witches can repent and be saved by God as happened in time of old. (Acts 8:9-13; 19:18-20) All witches will be destroyed by God except they repent and turn to God. God Almighty declared through Moses: “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” - Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
