There shall not be 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. (Deuteronomy 18:10-11)
Some ancient pagan customs demanded that a son or daughter be offered as a sacrifice in order to learn about the future or to seek favor from a supposed deity. God instructed the children of Egypt not to take on the customs or practices of the other nations who served pagan gods. As the children of God, we are the spiritual Jew, and we must submit ourselves to His written Word as they did.One would not think there had been so much needed as it seems there was to arm the people of Israel against the infection of the idolatrous customs of the Canaanites. They were cautioned on many occasions not to mingle or be friend them because they would be influenced or adapt to their customs. Our environment has a lot of influence on us whether we know it or not. This is why whether we’re believers or non-believers we can’t associate ourselves with everyone. As Christians, we can’t be running buddies with people who don’t acknowledge that there is a God or people who willingly practice sin.
Many professing Christians have associated themselves with people that have familiar spirits, thinking they can tell their fortune. God has already given us our future, everything we need is associated with us submitting ourselves to His written instructions (But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you – Matthew 6:33). What things, homes, business, cars, finances, spouse, children, these things that will bring you joy. As Christians, we don’t suppose to go to Fortune readers, cards readers, and spiritualist. What God has forbidden for the Christians we must abide by it, if not we will be like the children of Israel when they forsook God, He forsook them.
Many professing Christians don’t believe in demons and devils and Satan. They are just as real as God, they are the ones that were thrown out of heaven with Satan when he rebelled against God. When people go to crystal ball readers, fortune tellers and spiritualist they are receiving information from different evil spirits who have been watching you. Satan can’t be in every place at one time, He’s not like God, so what he will do is assign different devils and demons to watch you and know your whereabouts, what you like or dislike. If you’re looking for a spouse and what you’re looking for in a spouse. They listen to our conversations and thy will fulfill what they hear us say. This is how Fortune tellers and spiritualist and others like them can tell you who they see around you or what you like or dislike because of these evil spirits they are communicating with.
What is written in the Bible is for our instructions and for our well-being, if people follow the instructions not only will the person be blessed in this life but after death, they will not be candidates for hell. Just as God needs a human being to manifest Himself through, Satan also needs someone he can manifest himself through. When people go to these types of people they are encountering with demons and devils and what they thought was a fortune will become a misfortune.
Whenever a Christian, as well as a non-believer, willingly go outside of God’s will, they no longer has His protection. We are spirit beings, and we contact other spirits within the spiritual realm of our spirit. Satan always imitates what God does. Just as we communicate with God with our spirit, Satan communicates with those who have opened their spirit to him. You want to know your future, read and study the Word of God? Pray and fast until your spirit connects with God’s Spirit and when you do, you will be changed, no longer will you be seeking after people and things God has forbidden in His Word. He’s the only God who can change the heart and spirit of a person as well as give answers to your questions without a lie!
