Omega Countdown Ministries Commentary: Illusionism is magic and magic is sorcery and a form of withchcraft. Notice:

Main Entry: witch·craft
2 : an irresistible influence or fascination
3 : WICCA
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.
2 Kings 9:22 - And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?
2 Chronicles 33:6 - 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.
Micah 5:12 - And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:
Nahum 3:4 - Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.
Galatians 5:20 - Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Magic is the same as sorcery and witchcraft. It will be used as a tool by Satan to deceive the unwary. Such type of so-called entertainment has no place in the secular life of the Christian, let alone religious celebration activities. All who imbibe this craft will receive the judgment of God:
Here in Alberta, Canada, at the local SDA grade school on the campus of Canadian University College, there was a magician act a few years ago. The local associate pastor, Brian Levitt, told the children about the incident in the Bible where Christ disappeared from the crowd that was going to throw Him over a cliff. He said Christ performed an act of magic to same Himself! That is an abomination. We know that an angel delivered Christ out of the hands of His detractors. All this magic and wichcraft will pave the way for Satan to work his so-called miracles in the last days and professing Seventh-day Adventists are grooming their people to accept such "miracles" by being entertained by magicians.
Malachi 3:5 - And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.
Acts 13:6 - And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:
Acts 13:8 - But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
Revelation 21:8 - 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.
Revelation 22:15 - For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
