Deuteronomy 18:9-12-  When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  There shall not bee found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth 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.  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations, the LORD thy God doth drive them from before thee.
I decided to write this when I got to thinking about how many people I know, personally, that used to be very much into these kind of things and/or still are.
Throughout the Bible, we find God warning His people to not take part of any pagan practices of lands that they go into. In the passage above, we find titles of pagans of which today, we call psychics, mediums, astrologers, palm readers, fortune tellers, you name them. You can see in this passage that the occult is nothing new, you can see it was around during Moses, time, and I’m sure it was around before then. I am quite positive that there was a lot of it going on when God decided to flood the earth in Genesis 6.
With a scriptural study of the term “witchcraft” in the Bible, you will conclude that it means to seek guidance, help, predictions of future, etc. from any spiritual source other than God’s Holy Spirit. You will see the term “consulter with familiar spirits” in the Bible passage above. A familiar spirit is any spirit other than The Holy Spirit. If it is any other spirit than The Holy Spirit, then it is a satanic sprit. “Spiritual” talk, without even mentioning Jesus or the Bible once is very common nowadays. You will hear talk of all these “spiritual energies” and “spiritual realms.” If ANYONE ever tries giving you any spiritual advice that is not of God’s Holy Spirit, then you need to get away from that person IMMEDIATELY. They are consulting with evil spirits of Satan.
All of the above practices named in Deuteronomy 18:9-12 are practices of witchcraft. Today, these people have taken on more watered down terms to make it sound a bit less satanic (psychic, medium, etc.) and has become VERY popular among the younger generations over the past century.
People will often go and see a medium after a close friend or family member has died just to attempt to have communication with them. A “medium” is someone who claims to hold communication with “departed spirits” (remember God’s Holy Spirit vs. an evil spirit). This is exactly what the Bible calls a necromancer. There is NOTHING in scripture that even comes close to suggesting that we have any ability to communicate with the dead, or that the dead can communicate with us, and as a matter of fact, there is a passage in scripture that will refute that ideology.
Luke 16:27-28-  Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:  For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
The man in hell, in that passage, wants his brothers to be aware of the eternal torment by one being sent to them. He could not have any contact with them himself, wherefore he was asking for a messenger to be sent to them. The idea that people who died before you can give you signs is totally unbiblical. Nothing in scripture shows us that we will still have contact with those alive on earth. Whether you’re in heaven or hell.
Relating this back to necromancers (mediums), they will often tell you after their “connection” with the “departed spirit,” what the person is saying or that the person is going to give you a sign and will often be very specific, and their prediction of what will happen, really does happen. I know people who experienced it. However, we know that it is not a sign from the passed loved one, since we know that after our physical death, there will be no contact with people still alive on earth, but these “mediums” and “psychics” are often correct.
Earlier in this article, I explained that these people use witchcraft, meaning they get knowledge from a spirit that is not God’s Holy Spirit, therefore it comes from an evil spirit of Satan. I believe that these so called “departed spirits” that these people are talking to, are actually evil spirits working through them, and giving them such knowledge to deceive people into thinking that we will be “ghosts” wandering the earth talking to people, and giving signs to people, or that we will have some form of communication with people still alive on earth. I also believe, that these people will often put a “spell” (so to speak) through these satanic spirits if their prediction is about an “incident” that is supposed to repeatedly happen.
I know people who have experienced this, and it is my prayer that these “spells” that they are under are destroyed by our Holy God. If you have told me of any experience, then I have prayed specifically for you over this. The signs you are given are from an evil spirts and not your passed loved one.
I even believe that many of these necromancers are devout Satanists wanting to work with his evil spirits specifically to deceive people like this, and will one day RIGHTFULLY suffer dearly in the lake of fire with their father Satan and the rest of the eternally damned.
It is likely, that anyone who practices the witchcraft mentioned in this article, will despise me for exposing them and try casting a “spell” on me to harm me. Maybe the evil spirits that they consult with will make them aware of me, and maybe even the ones that people I know have visited with, will give them false “warnings” about me that I will do harm to their life, and I pray that none of my friends are deceived by these evil people over that. To the ones that want to cast a “spell” of harm against me, then I will tell you yourself will fail to do harm to my soul. It is covered in the blood of The Lord Jesus Christ, whom you are ABSOLUTELY NO MATCH AGAINST. I am not afraid of you.
Psalm 23:4- Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and they staff they comfort me.
If any evil spirit you consult with will cause trouble in my life, it is only because God allowed it to take place in order to test my faith. You have no authority over Him. I struggle through stages of depression from time to time, God pulls me out of every episode, and I know He would do it again, so my advice, don’t even waste your time trying.
In the name of The Lord Jesus Christ I write unto all. Amen.
