Superfantabulous Dave Pack seems to be surrounding himself with people who have ties to witchcraft or Wicca. He also claims that the leadership of the old Worldwide Church of God were actually witches that beguiled the membership.
Dave Pack's mind is dreaming up more and more idiocy as the days go by. Why do his cabal of HQ ministers, his advisers sit there week after week agreeing with this stuff? Deep down they know it is a load of bullshit, yet they nod approvingly. Who is really worse, Dave Pack or his yes men that know better and do absolutely NOTHING? Men who sit by and watch members be spiritually and financially abused. Impotent, deceived little men.I was talking to one our ministers the other day, and he told an incredible, chilling story. He’s in this room. He came home one day after school and suddenly—out of the blue—while he was in school in the afternoon, his father, a Roman Catholic, had married the housekeeper, who happened to be a witch and a practicing Sunni Muslim, who prayed five times a day, looking at Mecca. And they caught her trying to cast spells, and this minister’s father is now divorced from this witch. But, he has a brother who’s demon-possessed…His father asked him, not long ago, “Do you think there’s any way the witch I married…[He didn’t even know he married a witch; she was a practicing Muslim, five times a day; a Sunni, I mean, hard-line, Sunni Muslim, who was a witch.] She cast a spell on him, and he ran off and married her while his kids are at school. That’s a father of one of our faithful ministers.The brother of another of our ministers married a witch…knew he was doing it and they’re divorced, too. Obviously, they weren’t in the Church. But when the father’s a Roman Catholic and marries a Sunni Muslim…You sit and think…WOW! That’s a strange thing to do. When nobody knew. They’d never dated or done anything. She’s just a housekeeper. He was obviously divorced from his first wife, the mother of the minister. Those things happen.My wife had a witch, one time, in a nursing home. I believe up in Buffalo, and she said “I’m a witch and I demand to be called a witch.” And my wife said “We’re not going to call you a witch. We’re going to call you Ms. so-and-so.” She was telling me about it this morning, in detail. A horrible, bitter, awful, hateful, hateful woman. She said she looked like a witch; even had the bump on the nose and everything. [laughter] And she ran around in her wheelchair, and she would sometimes have enormous power, and she plagued the whole place.And one time my wife’s three little boys were dropped off by their father, to meet Mommy when she was off the shift, and the little boys…My wife would tell them to go up and down the halls and meet all the old people—it was a nursing home—and, go meet them all, but don’t go into the room…that’s a bad lady in that room, don’t ever go in there. And so, they’d go up and down…and they’re real friendly boys, if you know them, and they’d meet all the elderly people. Wish more young people would do that, but that’s the way they would occupy themselves in the nursing home…two boys and a little tag-along, who was four years younger.And one day, she heard them screaming “Mommy! Mommy! The witch is chasing us!” [laughter] and here she was, coming down the hallway with…a fierce look on her face…I mean, wheeling that thing at Mach II…her wheelchair…and chasing them. And she jumped in front of them stopped her, and the woman tried to attack her, and the little boys were scared. But, eventually, they had to get rid of her; but by law, you don’t put her to death. You’ve got to put her in a nursing home, and if she throws her feces all over the wall and all the kinds of vile things she did…horrible, horrible lady…you’ve got to put up with it.Eventually the nursing home couldn’t and I don’t know what happened to her, and my wife doesn’t. But when you don’t put them to death—well we don’t have the civil authority to do that; then they can plague people in a host of different ways…including some of the things I’ve described to you. They can trouble a nursing home; they can cast a spell on a man and get married; or they can control a whole city or a whole nation. You’ve got to come to understand this. Why, if I had time, I’d read all 117 verses to you. Well, let’s read another one that’s in Deuteronomy this time, Chapter 18 and verse 9…“When you are come into the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. [Well, what’s God have in mind?] There shall not be found among you any one that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses 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…[We’re reading the Word of God. God’s people are never to have anything to do with these.]…For all that do these things are an abomination [to] the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD your God does drive them out from before you. You shall be perfect with the LORD your God” (Deut. 18:9-13).Now remember, in II Timothy 3:13…Don’t go over there…It says evil men and wizard-imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. You need to think through, for a moment…Let me just plant a little seed before we keep reading. It doesn’t say that evil men will grow worse and worse, and at a point, wizards will arrive on the scene.It says “evil men”—that’s one category; and “wizard-imposters”—goēs—that’s the Greek for when a wizard is not just an “Elymas” and says…and claims to be somebody else, he’s a special kind of wizard. He’s an imposter. He’s not somebody who says “I’m the Wizard of Oz!” or “I’m the witch of Endor” where they just…“I come as advertised.” This is someone who is a wizard, but comes as someone, or some high office other than what he is—an impersonator, a counterfeit. In this case, a very plausible counterfeit. So it’s a type of wizard. Some wizards, as you saw, can claim to be God; others claim to be prophets; others just claim to be wizards. But you should keep in mind it says evil men and wizards will grow worse and worse.For a long time, brethren, I have struggled with understanding how is it that a hundred thousand people followed a number of crude men I knew were not of God. I knew they were satanic. You’ve heard me say it for decades. How did they do it? How did they get them to keep Sunday and put up Christmas trees, and chase Peter Cottontail down the bunny trail? Has them going back to Easter…How did they do that? Give up the Sabbath, the Holy Days…the Law of God?
