This word is basically about lying. If you lie once in a while or if you lie often, it does not matter. Some people are so used to lying that they don’t even know they are lying anymore. For you to understand how serious lying is, hear this statement: lying is spiritual divination. That is what lying really does: It promotes demons and brings witchcraft and confusion. Witches brew. They cook up. Some people are always cooking up something. People who lie are lying to protect what they don’t want the other person to know. So, in lying, you can put someone else under witchcraft. That witchcraft comes through manipulation and hidden agendas.

Sinners don’t know what they are doing. They lie all the time. But born-again people should never lie. If you’re a liar, you’re a witch. What you cook up, what you produce, what you brew is witchcraft! The source is from satan. He is the one who builds his own kingdom on them. Lies stir up all kinds of devils. The deep thing about this is that everyone would try to attack someone who is lost or deceived. A sinner in the world, for example, a sorcerer, a palm reader, a fortune teller. They are hearing what is being said. The fact is that their source is a lying source! But even a Christian person can be practicing this kind of wickedness as they lie. Deuteronomy 18:9-19 says, “There shall be not among you anyone who used divination.” God will drive them out of our midst. Who is the father of lies? Satan. Who are the ones who speak a lie? Liars (John 8:43-45). There is no truth in him, and when he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own! We should not act like the devil, and if we lie, we do. He was a liar from the beginning. God’s people are speaking Truth, but they are not hearing that! 

How about lying believers? Witchcraft is the works of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21). If you continue lying, God will consider you as a witch in the church. 1 Samuel 15:23 says, “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” I had a prophetic dream with all these cats with tags around their necks and the owner’s name and address on them. The interpretation is: God is saying, “Look for the source of where all lies (witchcraft) is coming from.” Then I had another dream. There was this person I know to be a habitual liar and he is in the church. I was sweeping the house. In this house there were locks of hair and this person was just standing there, not helping to clean the house, but then I realized he needed to be swept away also. Yes. Lies and deceit bring witchcraft to people in the church. We have ministers who even lie from the pulpit. False words, false visions, and false directions. All are witchcraft and lies! 

Let’s get something straight. If someone has been caught in a lie, they have actually been doing it for some time usually. There is no way to be one-for-one! When you lie and if you do, you repent quickly, that is the godly way of doing it. 

There is a difference between saying a lie and being a liar! When someone first lies, it’s thought out, and sometimes it is a response out of fear. It’s hard to lie. It takes practice to be a liar! When someone just lies, acts normal, then gets caught and does not even realize they have lied! They are diviners, they are in spiritual witchcraft, and they are living in deception and deceit! I believe a liar is someone who lies all the time! A liar is not a person who once in a while covers something up out of fear or a sudden reaction to a certain situation. They are becoming practicing witches.

This is really an environment to brew up witchcraft! Like a man who works in sales, how many lies do you have to say to sell your car? You have an agenda to make someone buy something. They may not even need it! They may not even want it! They may not even have the money for it! They are slick. They are great manipulators. But they say, “Well, this is my job,” but as Christians, there are some jobs not fit for them. We cannot take certain jobs or we cannot even consider ourselves good at them when it takes manipulation, heavy persuasion, and force. When selling something, it is all about you getting as much money as you can or making the sale. False prophets do that in the church all the time and convince others that it is for God. God cannot be sold, thus perverting the righteous giving, and making the church look like the enemy. What’s the difference from a soothsayer, fortune teller, or a palm reader?  None. They all are selling lies! But they try to sanctify them because they are still mountain dwellers (the seven mountains of influence). They are just climbing the wrong mountain instead of climbing the hill of the Lord, the holy mountain. They are climbing the seven mountains – the seven heads are the seven mountains that the beast sits on – meaning governs (Revelation 17). They are worldly, carnal, and separated from God! You’re an agent of self! But that’s not the kingdom of God! It is the kingdom of this world. 

Liars produce divination. Liars are the most prideful people in the world! Pride and lies are always bound together. Only a prideful person would lie to keep their own testimony, to keep their own witness, to keep their own way, to protect their devious plans, to keep the other person thinking they are right or this or that! One lie always leads to another lie if we do not make it right. It is a witch brew. 

This is what God hates: A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.” (Proverbs 17:4); “Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” (Proverbs 30:6); “For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.” (Psalm 109:2); “Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.” (Psalm 52:3); “For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.” (Psalm 59:12)

A liar will lie and say it’s their first lie! When lying for them has become a lifestyle. Read the Word:  The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment,” Proverbs 12:19, meaning you may get some benefits from lying for a moment, but the consequences you will reap forever if you don’t repent. Even in the world, if you lie to the FBI, it’s a felony and you get jail time, but people lie to God and God’s ministers all the time. We are more afraid of the FBI than to the God of all creation. May the fear of the Lord fill us all so we won’t lie ever again! God did not spare these two people who were under grace in the Bible, Acts 5:1-12. “Why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost,” Peter asked Ananias!  And he said, you have not lied unto men but unto God! Probably he made a commitment to God and gave a part of the price of what they got from selling their land, but God exposed their lies before man. That lie was conceived in his heart first. It was not about the giving; it was about the lying! “How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord?” Peter asked Sapphira! She fell down dead. But great fear came upon all that were in the house (verse 11). When the glory is in the house, demons manifest. Signs and wonders were done by the hands of the apostles and were manifested among God’s people and they were all with one accord! God does not want us brewing up lies and deception! Proverbs 6:16-18 says, “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief.”  

One big problem when you lie is that the other person will start to think that their discernment is off, or they don’t hear God. God shows you something and you bring it to the person and that person tells you that it is not true or lies about it. That makes you start losing your boldness. It messes with God’s gifts, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, then that steals our boldness and makes us think we are off and not hearing God. It is really bad. That is what prideful lying people do. Someone can literally be getting something from God (dream or vision or word of knowledge) and ask God about the spiritual meaning, but then the minister asks the person questions, and then the person lies because of pride. God is saying the truth to the minister but the person lies about it! This witchcraft now makes ministers think they missed God in their hearing, then witchcraft begins to swirl! That’s why lying is so, so, so big of a deal! “That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish,” Isaiah 44:25. Satan uses a liar in the church to make a wise man look like a fool, to make the spiritual gifts that discern a liar look like a fool.  You turn the wisdom of God into a foolish thing. When you lie to a person by denying what they are seeing in you through the gifts of the Spirit, you are lying to the Holy Spirit inside of them! Just like Ananias and Sapphira! 

Many try so hard to keep their word! When you said “yes” to God, there was no contract. You gave your word to Him. In old times, our words were our bond. Our word was the contract, our vow. 

Now because of the times we are in, we have written contracts because the word of man cannot be trusted. But in the Body of Christ, it has to be by the word we have spoken by our mouth! When someone has a hard time keeping their word, they are entering into murky waters. It’s like a starting place to have to lie or make excuses as to why they did not keep their word! If they are prideful, they will never take responsibility and will divert right away! Jacob was a liar and a deceiver! We cannot be like him thinking we will receive the Father’s blessings. There is no such thing as a little white lie! There is no such thing as a little leaven! A little lie makes a man a liar! We need to start to walk differently as we shed off the old man! “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath” (Ephesians 4:24-26).

God sees a liar in His body just as He sees palm readers and sorcerers! So today, put away all lies and speak truth all the time. Because we are a Body, when we lie, we put witchcraft on the whole body! Nobody would like it if they are dead. Everybody knows our weaknesses. Why would we even try to hide who we are or what we did? Father, we want to be found faithful and true. In you there is no lie, so shall there be no lie in us. You don’t manipulate people, so shall we not manipulate people. Father, I pray that when we are tempted to protect ourselves, to put any fig leaves on, we do not give in. No man can control a man, but Your Holy Spirit. We don’t want to be people that brew lies to get what we want!  No. This is not who we are in You!
