The occult (“hidden”) is everywhere in the end times.
One place occultism is popular is in the churches. BUT the church folk don’t call it “the occult.”
They call it “Christianity.”
Proof can be found on the nearest “Christian best-sellers list.” Most of the books are warmed over and watered down witchcraft and occultism.
More proof can be found in the rituals and practices which many churches engage in: some are taken from pagan and occult groups.
HOWEVER, the church folk are mostly offended when this is pointed out.
Little wonder: the end times churches have become the centers of witchcraft and the occult.
Your Thoughts Can Release Abilities beyond Normal Limits; Better vision, stronger muscles—expectations can have surprising effects, research finds– (h/t:SQ) This is an article from August 13 in Scientific American.
By happenstance, this writer recently read several articles about the pagan/New Age technique of “visualization” and it’s infiltration into the Christian Church.
But the churches are many times just following the popular culture. Popular culture is awash in occultism, forbidden practices, witchcraft and sorcery. Any who point out such abominations are said to be “spoil sports” or “party poopers” or accused of “You just don’t want anyone to have fun!”
Wickedness loves to masquerade as “fun!”
Wickedness also is very public and everywhere on display–especially in The World’s Most Christian Nation Ever!™ Again, many times it’s presented as “fashion,” “fad,” “Fun!” or the “coolest next big thing.”
Another media promo for the occult, but this one is a blatant appeal for witchcraft, the occult and “magic.”
Magic, mysticism and the occult are moving into the mainstream. Is it just a fad or a sign of spiritual crisis?
It’s none of the above.
It’s the end times as recorded in a book few believe: the Bible.
The Bible declares [witchcraft is booming] because of the times in which we live.
“Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
(The word for “sorceries” is also translated as “witchcraft” in Galatians 5:20.)
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, 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.”

The linked article is only more confirmation.
As if any more were needed.
Welcome to the season of the witch. Recently, the Brooklyn Academy of Music hosted a Witches Brew film festival, which included the acclaimed new film “The Witch.” Lately it isn’t uncommon to see glossy magazines like Nylon with headlines that start “The Witches’ Guide to…”, while new publications like Sabat, an aesthetically driven magazine that explores contemporary witchcraft, are attracting attention from readers and design snobs alike.
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
The reader can know the times in which we live by the pervasiveness of the occult.
IS he ready for the return of Jesus Christ?
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
