Try a web search of "the rise of witchcraft in America." You might be surprised at the results.
In preparation for his soon-to-be-released book, Jezebel's War with America: The Plot to Destroy Our Country and What We Can Do to Turn the Tide, author and national radio host Dr. Michael Brown conducted a similar search. The list was quite shocking:
- "The U.S. Witch Population Has Seen an Astronomical Rise"
- "Report: Witchcraft Rising in U.S. as Christianity Declines"
- "There Are Now More Practicing Witches in the U.S. Than Ever Before"
- "The Fastest Growing Religion in America Is Witchcraft" (posted October 2013, indicating this has been going on for some time)
That search in the fall of 2018 wasn't a fluke. Just last week, Bustle ran a step-by-step article about how to learn about witchcraft in the U.K.: "Although historically witches and the notion of witchcraft have had a bad reputation, it's now going through something of a renaissance, with Millennials and Gen Z-ers taking a keen interest in certain aspects of the practice. Many find serenity in the practices of witchcraft, while others are interested in its history and the meaning instilled in their lives through astrological readings. Luckily, learning about witchcraft in the U.K. has never been easier, and there are plenty of ways to get involved."
Or this result from TIME magazine: "Yes, Witches Are Real. I Know Because I Am One."
Jezebel's War with America focuses on the fact that the spirit of the biblical figure Jezebel is at work today, through a fascination with witchcraft and sorcery, radical feminism coupled with the extreme pro-abortion movement, along with other spiritual and cultural forces in an attempt destroy America. Brown's eye-opening book not only unveils a satanic plot, beginning with an all-out assault on the church, but it will equip every believer with tools to defeat the enemy in their own personal lives as well as in the nation.
"Can you deny that the spirit of Jezebel, the woman known for her sorceries and witchcraft (see 2 Kings 9:22), is thriving in America today?" Brown writes. "Can you deny the connection between: 1) our turning away from the one true God after idols, 2) the massive spike in pornography and immorality, 3) a militant, child-killing spirit, 4) radical feminism, 5) the aggressive LGBT movement and 6) the sudden rise in witchcraft?
"This has Jezebel's name written all over it in all caps, boldly and clearly," he added. "In early 2018, it was announced that 500 million Harry Potter books—books glorifying sorcery and wizardry—have now been sold worldwide. Just watch the children participating at the massive Wizarding World of Harry Potter area in a theme park in Orlando. They too want to be wizards and sorcerers."
For further confirmation, Brown looked to his Twitter account where his colleague Dr. James White said, 'It is very hard not to see a strong spirit of deception and delusion working in this culture—we murder our babies, destroy the gift of marriage, even mutilate young children all in service to the god of human autonomy. But, the judgment is just.'"
"The dots are all connected," Brown said. "The picture is there to see. Jezebel lives on."
