Witchcraft is the spirit of rebellion

And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
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 (1 Samuel 15:22-23).

Preacher Derek Prince once said that witchcraft is the universal religion of rebellion. Witchcraft is of a spirit which works through those who seek power outside of God. To power outside of God is rebellion for it is to deny the legitimate liberty and authority God gives to humans. It is to defy God. Where there is rebellion against God or human authorities ordained by God such as government, employers or husbands, there is witchcraft.
