The spirit of Witchraft feeds on the Desire to Manipulate Others

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat (Genesis 3:6).

The spirit of witchcraft appeals to the lust of the eyes by feeding on the desire to have power and control. Do not for a moment think that she only appeals to feminists. She certainly does appeal to them, however, she can certainly seduce others by their desire for power and control over others. A person under the spirit of witchcraft need not be a crazy, psychopathic woman who is violent towards her husband and children, loves child-murder, and is sexually immoral. She need not be a feminist who only focuses on helping women, rather than on honouring all people as 1 Peter 2:17 commands: Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

A person can be a pastor, missionary or theologian and be under the spirit of witchcraft. A person can be opposed to abortion, or child-murder and under the spirit of witchcraft. The spirit of witchcraft manifests in anyone who seeks to protect oneself, out of one's own selfishness by seeking to control others, so as to preserve oneself.The spirit of witchcraft feeds on the desire to be independent of God, thinking that one knows better than God.

She, like satan, seeks to make people think that the rebellion that they see is wise, empowering and liberating. The feminist movement, of whatever era it may be in, is of the spirit of witchcraft. It is not merely a 'power grab' as some rightly point out. It is of spirit of independence from God, and a desire to think that one is wiser than God. However, the spirit of witchcraft manifests in all kinds of ways. 

She most definitely manifests in missionaries, pastors, theologians and preachers who want to preach the Gospel in their own way, rather than the way done by the Jesus and Apostles, thinking they are wiser than God. She also manifests in the pro-life movement, which is not be confused with the abortion abolitionist movement. The mainstream pro-life movement regards child-murder as wrong, not because it offends God, but rather comes up with its own reasons for why it is wrong, thinking it is so wise. Instead of repenting of its sin and acknowledging that it is sin because God says murder is sin (Exodus 20:13; Proverbs 6:16-19; Revelation 21:8), it argues that abortion is sin because it 'harms' women. That something 'harms' people is not what makes it evil or wrong. What makes something sin is because of what God has said, and not for any other reason. It is only because God said it, for God is the standard of right and wrong.

The desire for independence from God, thinking that one's own way are wiser leads to the desire to manipulate others. Whether it be a missionary, youth leader or pastor who seeks to emotionally and spiritually manipulate people into thinking they are wrong for preaching the Gospel in their own people-fearing way, as opposed to the Biblical way, or the conservative pro-lifer who is against abortion because it 'harms' women, these are all of the desire to manipulate others. It is to pervert truth to justify one's own desire for independence from God. To justify such desires, one manipulates others into conforming into one's ways which are not of the desire to please God, but of the desire to appease one's flesh.
