Believe me, I’ve spent time in a ditch. We are learning definitions within the context of the writings understanding the intent of the mind who wrote them. As we’ve already pointed out, to bewitch is to be a hostile spiritual collective that causes one to believe they are not loved or accepted. It is a collective or individual governed by fear.
“He spoke to them another parable: “The kingdom of the heavens is like leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.”Matthew 13:33
Do not lose heart. Just as fear was intended to be the beginning, so is what it produced. The Kingdom is like leaven. Leaven is yeast that causes bread to rise, or wine to ferment. It is like leaven that a woman took and hid in all the flour until it was fully incorporated. The Kingdom of Heaven is like this. This is the picture of the Collective Woman in the beginning that partook of self judgement and caused pride and the fallen nature to be had by all. We were tricked. We were deceived. But we are now called to eat of a meal that is unleavened.
There is always a higher truth. Much can be said of these shadows and types that point to a higher truth. But understand that the secret power of lawlessness is that it destroys itself.
It is how Heaven evolves a planet. It is how Heaven has plunged mankind into darkness that he may be rescued from it and return to a place that is free. It is the picture of God in the flesh evolving into His highest being.
These things are hard to understand. But He is the Great Supplanter.
Take your time.
