Occultism

It is quite apparent that in God’s inerrant bible that there is no place for astrologers, magicians, soothsayers, stargazers, psychics, prognosticators, mediums, diviners, enchanters, witchcraft, sorcerers, spiritists, fortunetellers, and wizards for they are not of God and don’t know the truth therefore they cannot tell the truth.

 

Astrologers cannot interpret dreams

Daniel 4:7    Then the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers came in, and I told them the dream; but they did not make known to me its interpretation.

 

Astrologers cannot save you

Isaiah 47:13    13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels;

Let now the astrologers, the stargazers,

And the monthly prognosticators

Stand up and save you

From what shall come upon you.

 

Consulting mediums brings judgment

Leviticus 20:6    ‘And the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people.

 

Diviners will be disgraced

Micah 3:7    7 So the seers shall be ashamed,

And the diviners abashed;

Indeed they shall all cover their lips;

For there is no answer from God.”

 

Do not call forth spirits of the dead

Deuteronomy 18:10-11    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.

 

Do not listen to fortune tellers

Jeremiah 27:9    Therefore do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your dreamers, your soothsayers, or your sorcerers, who speak to you, saying, “You shall not serve the king of Babylon.”

 

Do not listen to mediums and psychics

Leviticus 19:31    31 ‘Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.

 

Isaiah 8:19    19 And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living?

 

Do not practice fortunetelling

Leviticus 19:26    26 ‘You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor shall you practice divination or soothsaying.

 

Do not try to read future in stars

Jeremiah 10:2    Thus says the Lord:

“Do not learn the way of the Gentiles;

Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven,

For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.

 

Egyptian magicians, secret arts

Exodus 7:11, 22    11 But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.

22 Then the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments; and Pharaoh’s heart grew hard, and he did not heed them, as the Lord had said.

 

Exodus 8:7, 18    And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.

18 Now the magicians so worked with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not. So there were lice on man and beast.

 

Egypt’s mediums and psychics

Isaiah 19:3    3 The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst;

I will destroy their counsel,

And they will consult the idols and the charmers,

The mediums and the sorcerers.

 

Execute mediums, psychics and sorcerers

Exodus 22:18    18 You shall not permit a sorceress to live.

 

Leviticus 20:27    27 ‘A man or a woman who is a medium, or who has familiar spirits, shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be upon them.’ ”

 

Fortuneteller

Acts 16:16, 18    16 Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling.

  18 And this she did for many days.

But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour.

 

Incantation books burned

Acts 19:19    19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver.

 

Josiah exterminated mediums and psychics

2 Kings 23:24    24 Moreover Josiah put away those who consulted mediums and spiritists, the household gods and idols, all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the Lord.

 

Magicians, enchanters, sorcerers, stood before king

Daniel 2:2    Then the king gave the command to call the magicians, the astrologers, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans to tell the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.

 

Medium at En Dor

1 Samuel 28:7    Then Saul said to his servants, “Find me a woman who is a medium, that I may go to her and inquire of her.”

And his servants said to him, “In fact, there is a woman who is a medium at En Dor.”

 

No Fortunetelling or sorcery

Deuteronomy 18:10, 11    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.

 

No more fortunetellers

Micah 5:12    12 I will cut off sorceries from your hand, And you shall have no soothsayers.

 

Reading stars

Isaiah 47:13    13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels;

Let now the astrologers, the stargazers,

And the monthly prognosticators

Stand up and save you

From what shall come upon you.

 

Saul consulted medium

1 Chronicles 10:13    13 So Saul died for his unfaithfulness which he had committed against the Lord, because he did not keep the word of the Lord, and also because he consulted a medium for guidance.

 

Sorcery and divination

2 Kings 21:6    Also he made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.

 

Using cups

Genesis 44:2, 5    Also put my cup, the silver cup, in the mouth of the sack of the youngest, and his grain money.” So he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken.

Is not this the one from which my lord drinks, and with which he indeed practices divination? You have done evil in so doing.’ ”

 

Wizards

1 Samuel 28:3    Now Samuel had died, and all Israel had lamented for him and buried him in Ramah, in his own city. And Saul had put the mediums and the spiritists out of the land.

 

When anyone says to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” Should a person seek any of these above described individuals or should the person seek their God? You know the answer but if you don’t know, the answer is “seek your God, the God of heaven”.

 

Hearts can be renewed by Jesus. Christ can make a heart strong. God can create a new clean heart. The Lord can cleanse the heart and renew its spirit.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
