I first heard about Santeria witchcraft a few months ago while listening to a christian radio program that had an ex Santeria witch. They spoke of many dangers with this but what intrigued me the most while searching this, is that it has been said that obama’s mother-in-law was a practicing santeria witch. They have scrubbed a lot of this information from the net and the news, but it’s even said that Jennifer Lopez practices this, and her husband admitted it.
At any rate, it’s a growing thing here in the US and given the lateness of the hour with prophecy, we should become familiar with those who call upon the powers of darkness. Revelation 9:21 while describing the 6th trumpet say’s this: ‘ The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood–idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their MAGIC ARTS, their SEXUAL IMMORALITY or their thefts.’
Now before you watch these videos, I want to make it clear that I am not trying to paint one religion over another bad or good. This is a centuries old cult based on religious practices. I want to pose a conundrum: It’s the age old question what came first the chicken or the egg? Except with this I can tell you with 100% certainty that the word of God came first, and then Satan set out to destroy it and mankind. John 1:1 -3 In the beginning was the word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.’
The muslim religion takes things from the Jewish and Christian religion to fit their version of god and religion. The Christian most specifically the Catholic church, has been accused of adopting pagan rituals, but what if it started with the pagans copying from the jew’s and the Christians. Egyptians worshiped a sun god, and other deities, same as with Rome, they all sacrificed to these gods. Greek mythology goes back the farthest, but what if all these god’s and myths originated in God’s word and became so twisted that they are the ones that have adopted our truth’s and turned them into lies. I’m just saying that’s all. Something to think about, before you say ‘I knew it! The Catholics are devil worshiping, idol worshiping demons. That’s like saying ‘All Christians’ are murderers and liars. That is not to say that all of their practices are pleasing to God, but which church is these days?
Even Jude say’s the archangel Michael when battling satan for Moses’s body did not bring a slanderous accusation against satan he said ‘The Lord Rebuke you Satan.’ And then Jesus could have said all sorts of nasty things to satan while being tempted and he chose to say only ‘It is written.’ And ‘Get behind me satan’, and ‘Don’t test the Lord your God.’ That doesn’t mean we are not to call out false prophets, or point out heretical doctrine. There’s a finite balance there.
Any way, we need to be aware that there are very dark and sinister spirits out there and they will gain strength and following in these day’s. Be aware of them, so you can tell the difference between them and God. From what I can gather, Santeria is practiced in Africa, Brazil, Venezuela, and even Haiti. Voodoo and Santeria are closely related. There are many images on google for Santeria in Haiti.
I believe there are 4 more parts, I will post those in a separate posting if your interested, this will give you a good working knowledge of what this is and how dangerous it is. And remember this is practiced widely in this country as well, and possibly even in the Whitehouse.
