Revelations 18:23 states: “For the merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

Look up the word “sorceries” in Strong’s Concordance, a reference book which lists the Hebrew and Greek translation of every word in the Bible, and you’ll find the original Greek meaning for sorceries is pharmakeia or pharmacy. In other words, drug medications. So what that line from Revelations is really saying is: “For thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy drug medications were all nations deceived.” MORE
