“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…” – 1 Sam 15:23
It is not just a random happenstance Harry Potter took the world by storm over 10 years ago. It was a concerted effort by satan’s kingdom to bring Harry Potter to the masses. The Bible reads satan is the one who deceives the whole world (Rev. 12:9). It is my belief satan used Harry Potter to desensitize people, especially children, to witchcraft and sorcery, something the Bible strongly condemns (read Deut. 18:10-12). Interestingly, JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, said she received the story fully formed as if it was given to her by the spirit realm. Don’t think such occult related books, even though fictional, can have no influence on children. I personally know a woman who got involved in witchcraft that started off with her interest in Harry Potter when she was child.
This excellent video exposé is over a decade old but I believe it is still relevant today as there seems to be more entertainment, especially in the medium of literature and movies, involves the occult.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
