The Devil wears Camouflage.

Updated on August 12, 2018

The Devil hides in Plane Sight!

This picture has always haunted me even if it is just "a trick of light" or whatever, I find the image disturbing. It is a powerful metaphor to the work of Satan!

The Devil Wears Camouflage

I recently was reading a response to a question on HubPages were a woman was wondering if she could consider her self a Christian if she conversed with the dead and read Taro Cards. This amazed me, for when I practice the Occult; I was defiantly not a Christian and did not pretend to be! I was a card carrying Satanist, who used the tools of his trade, Taro Cards crystals, Ouija boards and wands. I knew without a shadow of doubt that theses things had nothing to do with Christianity and that was the POINT!

During that time, I saw everything as backwards. God was wrong and the Devil was right! The reason I came to that conclusion is that it seem that even Christians embraced the things of this world and Pagan practices. It appalled me and I wanted nothing to do with the two-face view projected by those who confessed to serve Christ but still dabbled in things that went against the scriptures. THIS IS THE MAIN THING THAT DROVE ME AWAY FROM THE CHURCH! I want to make this point clear as possible, for the Christian Church is still doing this! Christians allow their focus to drift allover the place instead of staying on target. That target is the Kingdom of God and when they veer off from this target, they drive many souls away!

Christianity is meant to be separate from the world, in the world but not of it! God makes it clear in the scriptures that you cannot serve two masters (Matthew 6:24) and He is clear about his view on witchcraft (Leviticus 19:26). In this verse, God declares that His people should not practice fortunetelling or any form of witchcraft. This of course, is not the only verse in the Bible that warns against the practices of witchcraft or any type of magic. In Revelation 21: 08 God lays it on the line when he says: “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt murders, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars-there fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur.” This may seem harsh nevertheless; it shows that God does not compromise!

I can no longer buy into the lie that there is “several paths up the mountain but the view at the top is all the same.” If you want to reach God, there is only one way and that is though Jesus Christ! I did not come to this conclusion easily, for I was very rebellious person and I did not care for the concept of “the straight and narrow.” I have finally reached this conclusion after years of wasting time perusing paths that lead me nowhere.

I believe that when God says he is a jealous God, He says this for our own good. He knows that Satan has prepared landmines for the careless to step into. Some of the false hoods of the Devil may seem harmless or intriguing. Like interest in Astrology, what harm could there be in that? I will answer that with a question- have you ever cooked frogs? You see, when you cook frogs, you do not throw them into boiling water. You slowly increase the heat so they do not know what is going on. That is how Satan temp people. He is a professional frog chef! The enemy has been described as a “roaring Lyon” and yet, more often, he hides in the tall grass waiting for us to wonder by.

BESIDES THIS, HE IS A MASTER OF DISGUISE! I boldly shout this for this is so important to understand! Remember the Garden of Eden? The Serpent was nothing like it is now. It was beautiful creature! Not only this, he told such a devious lie! This yea shall be like gods(Genesis 3: 1-4) is the premises for most forms of witchcraft! The goal is to become a god or goddess! This is evident in such Wicca rituals as “The Great Rite” when the priest and priestess take on the role of god and goddess in either symbolic or actual sexual acts.

Now, when it comes to the subject of Wicca, some people see it as a way to explore their roots, (if they have Celtic ancestors). I have even known people who claim to be Christian witches! If you want to practice witchcraft, then find, practice witchcraft! Just do not be confused by thinking God is okay with that! When you mix water with gasoline, does it help your engine to run better? My experience tells me no, it does not. It makes the engine sputter and run rough.

Well the same is true with mixing truths with lies! There is only one source of power in doing any form of discernment or understanding anything unknown. That source of power is the Holy Spirit. God is the one that can give men the power to prophecy or know the future and he does not need the help of Taro cards or any other tools of Satan! In the Western World, Christianity has wimped out big time allowing all kinds of garbage to seep though the floorboards of the church in an effort not to offend anyone!

It is time for us cast out that which goes against the principles presented in the Bible. Just like I state in my hub series The Feathered Christ, the predictions about the world ending on December 21, 2012 cannot be true because they go against the statement Jesus makes in Mathew Mathew 24: 36 “only the father knows the hour.” Yes, the Devil wares Camouflage and yet with the help of Scripture we can spot him every time!

      Your truth can be found in life itself in the simplest form through the writings of the Bible. That is our certainty in this life, "the word of God," without it we would only know false gods and idols. Those who had passed the knowledge of God from one generation to the next would have no proof of God's love except in his unwritten, unrecorded miracles. You can believe even without witnessing these miracles because the Bible says it is so, that God loves you all of you.

      I don't see how anyone could disagree with you that has ever read the bible, but then that is the big problem today. The Catholics aren't allowed to (or have they changed that?) and most professing Christians don't want to. They like to hold hands with the enemy and make up their own rules as they go along. They try to make real Christians look bad to not befriend the devil's advocates. Great hub, sorry I missed it for so long.

      Wow- do I have some hubs for you to read! For it is clear that you do not know much about how Wicca was even created! You should check out my Luciferian Doctrine hubs for the last one goes into great detail on how three Masons were the creator of modern Wicca which throws your goddess therory out the window! Yes women are realy great and it just shows what a great job God did with Adam's rib!

      The greatest camouflage of the devil is the claim of civility in it's distance and separation from the great forests. Without trying to separate our efforts I will say that by saying that a person can't be a Wicca Christian Highvoltagewriter is serving both masters as a chauvinist. If you prefer the thought of God the creator then women are extraordinarily biologically superior. God the creator of technology could be pertinent with an insistence for a brain activated WiFi spirit inter-web with a similar reliability to the mechanical. Exposing the Spiritual of Tyranny. Cures

      You are so right! I believe that the biggest lie is that the devil does not exist. Thank you for your story.

      I am blown away with this hub. Wow is all I can say you have come a long way. I truly agree with NOTW. Not of this world but we live in it. It is a war that is faught spiritually not physically. A wrestle in the supernatural. Living in the flesh is the norm for all who do not know God. I wrestle with my flesh on a daily basis and get convicted and I sit there like a puppy in trouble. The biggest achievement is to walk the lines that jesus christ did and that is the biggest battle we believers have. I was once a pupet of Satan and he was my pupeteer but I cut those strings jointed to my soul. Thanks for this wonderful hub. Glad to be a follower of highvoltagewriter.

      Smiles :)

      well, high there, little satan's buddy! I haven't seen your newest works lately, but thought I'd check up on some of the people I've been following and your image leapt to mind! Doing awfully good work, you were!

      I came back to vote this hub up again, because I feel it is a very important hub with a message for many people.

      I am in awe of you Highvoltagewriter and how you have turned your life around.

      Did you know there are more people practising black witchcraft than at any other time of history? Years ago a lot of this occult knowledge was hidden with just a few people having access to it, but today with just about everyone being able to read plus the internet and all the occult information on it free for the asking, we have an explosion in paranormal activity. Satan is having a field day, his job has never been easier.

      We need to get the word out how dangerous it is to play around with this stuff, even if you don't believe in it and you are doing it just for the heck of it, it is opening doors that are very hard to close.

      I think people finally realize how serious this is when people involved in the occult lifestyle start to die off at a young age. Satan wants to harvest those souls as soon as possible before they have a chance to wise up like you did and tell everyone who will listen the truth.

      I want to get another hub written on this subject. I want to link back to your hubs on this subject too.

      Okay, I am looking forward to your next hub too, I enjoy your sense of humor and your intelligence shines through in all your hubs. Keep up the great work!

      This is an awesome hub! When I wrote my last hub, "Solution to Ground Zero Mosque"...I proposed putting a place on the rooftops of the other churches where the Wiccans/pagens could worship in the nude.

      I put that in there on purpose to see how many people would find that offensive, and so far...no one has! Yes, I love to stir up things, so I can find out what people really believe in. I personally would never go for something like tht, but in our politically correct world, everything is OK! Give me a break!

      I think it is time for Christains to stand up and be counted. Not in a bad way by burning the Koran, but in a good way, as we set a good example.

      One thing I will give the Muslims is that they are faithful. More faithful by far than Christains. Of course their governments revolves around islam, where our government seperates church from state. That is the difference. I am sure it is against the law not to pray 5 times a day in Islamic countries!

      You are so right about how Satan works. If you ever read about a haunted house you will notice that is starts out very slowly, a knock here, a bump in the night there, a little at a time, sometimes it takes years for the full maisfestation of evil, but once it is there it is entrenched.

      Our culture is the same way. How many times have we all looked forward to watching some spooky movie or show about the paranormal? The paranormal is all over TV now, making it cool to be a witch or a vampire. People think it is harmless, but it is opening a door. I have to admit, I find the occult really interesting, but at the same time, I don't want to get sucked in by it either, because there could be the most dire of consequences.

      Great Hub! I agree with you. Who or what do people think they are asking for help when they practise Wicca?

      If you are not calling upon God, then was are you calling? It's a huge trap!

      I don't even read my horoscope anymore, it was never right anyhow, and it is offensive to the Lord.

      I have never been one to be a little bit of anything I guess it is just who I am...when I decided to be a Christian it became clear to me I could not take a back seat, for when I was involved in the occult I took it as far as I could. As far as I know all of the people who was involved to the degree I was are now dead! I feel that God has keep me alive for a reason. One of those reason is lead those who been involved in "The Black Arts" to Christ.

      Strongly worded by a believer in Christ. I'm a Christian but I don't have the depth of faith as you have. I'm just practical, I shun away from things a God-loving person dislikes. And that's that.Thank you. This hub is an eye-opener.
