THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Pharmakeia”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Pharmakeia”

In scripture the word sorcery shows up several times. It is very easy
to think of this word as something like witchcraft when you hear the
word. The actual word in the greek is pharmakeia which is where we get
the word pharmacy. Mind altering substances were used during the time
of the first century church. God’s feelings were then, as they are now.
Using drugs is listed as a work of the flesh. Some believe the reason
pharmekeia is translated sorcery, and witchcraft is because of the
demonic influence when you are not in your right mind. Your mind becomes
an open portal for demonic influence when your state of mind has been
altered. This is an easy concept to grasp because so many people take
drugs for the purpose of contacting the spirit realm. The issue is if
your not contacting God your are contacting Satan. No matter what other
name may be put on spirit realm journeys, if you are not getting in touch
with Jesus, you are accessing evil. No outside help is needed when you
are contacting Jesus. It isn’t hard to find someone who lives inside you.

Galatians 5:19-21
19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
