Christian witch, Reverend Valerie Love, will be hosting the first annual Christian Witches Convention in Salem, Massachusetts, scheduled to take place in April. In her promo video, Love clearly expressed that during the Witches Ball event, she would like for someone to come dressed as actor Michael Langdon, even though she admits that he is the “seed of Satan” and the “devil’s spawn”. “However, I like him,” said Love. “And I’d like to see someone come as Michael Langdon. Or maybe his very witchy mother. His mother wasn’t witchy, his mother was a servant of Satan, and the Satanic Church.”
Love will offer tarot card and coaching sessions along with Calvin Witcher, who describes himself as a Prophet who is on a spiritual mandate to “see, speak, and translate from the spirit realm to this physical world.” Witcher also allows “non-traditional followers to hear the divine voice of hope,” and offers private readings for $500.
Witcher, who comes from a Christian background, said in a recent Facebook Live stream that the Bible is “not a Christian text,” even going further by stating that Jesus’ adult ministry was “all magic”, and followers of Jesus should be doing the magic that he did. Witcher stated in a recent YouTube video that he “ain’t dumb” when it comes to scriptures, partly as a result of attending seminary school.
“The Hebrew scriptures – first of all, God did not write that,” said Witcher, who acknowledges himself as “Master Prophet”, in the YouTube video. “God did not write your scriptures. And I will talk to anybody [who] tries to think that otherwise. I’m okay with you believing it’s inspired, which is actually what the scripture says, that it was inspired by holy men and women… but God, angels, whoever you want to say, did not come down with a big pen and ruled, lined paper, and write your scriptures. That ain’t what happened, boo.”
Witcher adds to his explanation by saying that it is “history” that most of scripture is prophetic, and this encompasses two-thirds in total.
“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.” – 2 Timothy 3:16
The phrase inspired by God comes from the Greek word theópneustos, which is defined as “God-breathed, inspired by God, due to the inspiration of God” and “divinely breathed in.” Not only does any “new visions” or prophecies without biblical support violate Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32, and Revelation 22:18-19, but it also contrasts Jesus’ mission to use revelation for his disciples to better understand scripture, as stated in Luke 22:44-45. The Bible also makes it clear that no prophecy of Scripture comes from one’s own interpretation (2 Peter 1:20-21), which even further elevates the importance of proper exegesis.
Regarding the “two-thirds” prophecy claim, this is also inaccurate. While one can strongly (and accurately) argue that prophecy of Christ and New Testament writings is threaded all throughout the Old Testament (see Isaiah 53:10; Genesis 3:15; Psalm 118:22; Zechariah 12:10; Daniel 7:13), J. Barton Payne’s Encyclopedia of Biblical Prophecy states something quite different than Witcher. Out of the 31,124 verses in the Bible, there are only 8,352 prophecy verses (1,817 prophecies in total), which only constitutes 26.8 percent of the Bible as a whole.
