Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done.
Simon had people thinking he was working the power of God. People believed it was the power of God. They were duped by the dark side. In the end, Simon knew he was lost and despite all the so called signs he could perform through dark powers. He knew he had no hope. He came to Philip and met Jesus.
We all need Jesus!
