The Occult

Horoscopes, Satanism, witchcraft …

 Christians should not require much convincing of occult activities being sinful, but on the contrary I have heard about “Christian people” using Ouija Boards or checking their horoscopes. In the Old Testament King Saul sought for a witch after God rejected his sinful ways, but for a Christian to stoop that low is a remarkable failure.

 Jeremiah 10:2  Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 10:3  For the customs of the people are vain: …

 Deuteronomy 18:10  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,  18:11  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  18:12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

 Galatians 5:19  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,   5:20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

 Under the Mosaic Law, occult activities were punishable by death. Under the New Testament, Jesus cast out the Satanic spirits and brought deliverance.

 Leviticus 20:27  A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
