Who Has Bewitched You?

Oh foolish Galatians, please come out of the DPM before it’s too late. What is the DPM you may ask? It is the Deluded Paulian Movement – also known as the “ignorant and unstable” of 2 Peter 3:16 who “twist and distort” Paul’s writings. Peter warns us to stay away from such people.

2 Peter 3:17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. 

Some love to quote Paul’s writings to the Galatians when he was asking “who has bewitched you?” This is usually hurled at those of us who desire to obey YHWH. OK. I’ve already established who a “foolish Galatian” really is in another note – see: Oh Foolish Galatians

Now, let’s look at the definition of “bewitch” shall we? For context, here is the usual passage quoted by antinomians in the DPM…

Galatians 3:1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified.

According to Webster, this is the definition of “bewitch”:


1a : to influence or affect especially injuriously by witchcraft 

1b : to cast a spell over

2: to attract as if by the power of witchcraft

What does the Bible have to say about “witchcraft?”

1 Samuel 15:23 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. 

Hmmm… witchcraft comes from rebelling and rejecting the word of YHWH. Webster defines rebellion as…


1: opposition to one in authority or dominance

2a : open, armed, and usually unsuccessful defiance of or resistance to an established government

2b : an instance of such defiance or resistance

Funny how so many DPM’ers will use Galatians 3:1 to come against those who actually want to obey YHWH! It is soooo easy to see what Peter was warning the Galatians about once you come out of the DPM. Perhaps you are not yet seeing what I’m seeing, so let’s go a little deeper, shall we?

Quoting Paul’s writing to the Galatatians again, people in the DPM also like to use this one:

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

We have freedom and liberty in Christ! Yippie!! Ok…. so, are we therefore to believe that we are free to walk in rebellion? I think not. Hopefully you agree. Let’s continue…

Galatians 5:

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Woa! Wait a minute! Help me out DPM’er. Paul said we are not “under the Law” yet he also says that those who practice “witchcraft” will not inherit the kngdom of God. Yet, in your minds, “witchcraft” = keeping the Torah (as always implied in your quoting of Galatians 3:1). I know this to be a fact as many of you have used it in that context here on my wall and prominant YouTube preachers (who shall remain nameless) have actually accused me publically of “practicing witchcraft” because of my pro-Torah stance. In fact, others have written a number of blogs accusing me of being under the “doctrine of devils” for the same reason.

For more on that see:

OK. Let’s get back to a BIBLICAL definition of things associated with demons and witchcraft… beginning with the Torah:

Deuteronomy 18:

 9 “When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations.

 10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,

11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.

 12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you.

13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.

14 For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do so.

15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him.

Care to guess who this “Prophet” is that is likened unto Moses? Hopefully you guessed right. Yeshua. Now, do you honestly think Yeshua, the prophet like Moses would tutor Paul (AT Mt. Sinai no less!) into thinking that obedience to the Torah was = to “witchcraft?” Seriously??? Continuing…

Leviticus 19:26 You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor practice divination or soothsaying {aka witchcraft}.

It is abundantly clear from the Scriptures that YHWH is against witchcraft!

2 Chronicles 33:

 1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:

2 But did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel.

3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.

4 Also he built altars in the house of the Lord, whereof the Lord had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.

5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord.

6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.

YHWH didn’t like Manasseh messing around with witchcraft and He certainly doesn’t seem to have ever changed His mind about that!

Micah 5:12 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:

Can you honestly twist and distort that into “I will cut off practicioners of my Law out of your land” and still think you have a correct view of Paul??

In the Last Days, YHWH pours out His wrath on those who practice witchcraft…

Revelation 9:

20 The rest of the people who survived these plagues did not repent from their evil actionsm or stop worshiping demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see, hear, or walk.

21 They did not repent from their murders, their witchcraft, their sexual immorality, or their thefts.

and again…

Revelation 18:23 The light from a lamp will never shine within you again. The voice of a bridegroom and bride will never be heard within you again. For your merchants were the important people of the world, and all the nations were deceived by your witchcraft.

Note: YHWH is NOT saying that all the world has been deceived into obeying His Torah!! Those who obey Him, He rewards. The others He punishes. This is (or should be) like Bible Basics 101 guys!

Revelation 21:

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

The Galatians distorting DPM’ers have it all flipped around! Sorry guys, but from Genesis to Revelation, keeping the Commandments of YHWH is a GOOD THING and not keeping them is equal to rebellion, which is equal to witchcraft… which is a bad thing.

Revelation 22:

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

I don’t know about you, but I’m kinda craving some o’ dat Tree O’ Life fruit if you know what I mean. And if you want some too, you may want to seriously consider making an Exodus out of the Deluded Paulian Movement who regularly twist and distort the Word of YHWH ending up in the “error of lawlessness.” 

Just sayin’.
