Dangers Of The Occult

With the advance of what is called the New Age Movement, there are many Christians who are getting pulled into dangerous darkside activity.

Many Christians have not read the Bible in its complete entirety and they are thus not aware of the strict warnings that God the Father has given about being involved in any type of occult activity. Most of these warnings are back in the Old Testament.

One of the greatest stories in the Bible is the story of Moses and how he pulled God’s chosen people out of slavery from Egypt – and then the subsequent story of Joshua and Caleb who were then called by God to lead His people from the wilderness into the Promised Land.

Before they went into the Promised Land, they were given strict warnings and guidelines by God the Father as to what they could do and what they could not do. And one of those warnings was about not engaging in a lot of the pagan practices of the people who were already inhabiting parts of the Promised Land.

Many of these people were evil and had horrible practices of sacrificing their own children to appease what they thought were gods. Some of these people were involved in heavy occult type activity, and God was very strict in the warnings that He gave His own people in that they were not to engage in this type of evil activity.

The warnings that God gave His people back then still apply to all of us in this day and age. The Bible says that God does not change, and this includes all of His ways and all of His warnings.

The trouble is that most Christians are not aware of what some of these warnings are because they have not spent much time reading and studying from the Old Testament.

In this article, I will list some of the specific activities in this day and age that God does not want any of us engaging in, the specific reasons as to why He does not want us engaging in these types of activities, and the Scripture verses to back it all up.

The Reasons God Does Not Want Us to Engage With the Occult

The Bible says that God the Father is a jealous God, a consuming fire. Here are two verses specifically telling us this:

1.  “For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God …” (Exodus 20:5)

2.   “For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.” (Deuteronomy 4:24)

Because God is very jealous and possessive over His own children, He wants all of us coming directly to Him if we have any problems with our future, or what He might have in store for us in our future. People are consulting fortunetellers, psychics, horoscopes, and ouija boards for guidance and information on what the future may hold for them.

The Bible says that it is the job of the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth and teach us all things in this life. God wants to be the Guide and Teacher of your life. He does not want you going to others to seek out this type of divine guidance because of His intensely jealous nature.

The Bible says that there is only one God – and only He knows all things about you – which includes all of your past, present, and future.

The first two commandments are that we are to have no other gods or idols before God the Father.

The minute you go to a fortuneteller or psychic for any type of divine guidance, you are placing this person before God the Father and you will thus risk incurring His wrath, along with possibly opening the door for demons to be able to come directly after you.

These fortunetellers get their ability to have partial knowledge about you and your present situation directly from demons. No human has the supernatural ability to know what is going to happen to you in the future, or anything about you in your present condition if they have never met you before.

And if they do seem to have some type of personal information about you that could only be supernaturally picked up, then that knowledge is being transmitted to them by demons.

Once you step into the fortuneteller’s office, you are stepping behind enemy lines since these people are operating under the direct influence of demonic spirits.

At this point, if God should so allow it, you have now given the demons the full legal right to be able to follow you home. And from there, the demons will set up shop in your house and they will then start to attack both you and possibly the other members of your family.

The Bible says that God’s people will perish for having lack of knowledge – and many Christians are dragging demonic spirits home with them due to their lack of knowledge about how dangerous it is to engage in any type of occult activity.

I recently did an article titled “The Dangers of Hypnotism.” A woman I recently met went to a hypnotist one time in an effort to try and quit smoking. Right after she came out, she literally lost 50% of her ability to remember things.

A demon had become attached to that part of her brain that controlled her memory functions, and it wasn’t until she confessed this activity before God as a sin, renounced it by telling God that she would never do it again, and then engaged with the demons to leave her in the name of Jesus Christ that she started to get her memory ability fully restored back to her.

It took two months before she got it all back, but after the two months, all of her memory ability was fully restored back to her by the Lord.

Fifty people may go to a hypnotist and never draw a demon in on them. Another person like this one girl will only go one time and draw the demons in. The risk is simply too great! No Christian should ever take their chances on crossing over into enemy territory hoping they will come out unharmed!

This woman had this 50% memory loss for one solid year until she met me and I told her how to break the demons off her as a result of going to the hypnotist one time. Her memory loss was so bad during that entire year, that she thought she was going to get fired from her other job because she could not retain or remember half of what was being told to her by her superiors.

Now here are some of the main verses from Scripture telling us that we can in no way have anything to do with the occult.

The Bible Verses On The Occult

These 5 verses are giving all of us major warnings from the Lord on what specific areas of the occult that we are to avoid like the plague. To be forewarned is to be properly armed.

  • “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes His son or daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures up spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 18:10-13)
  • “And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them …” (Deuteronomy 4:19)
  • “Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 19:31)
  • “And the person who turns after mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people.” (Leviticus 20:6)
  • “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.” (1 Chronicles 10:13)

The above verses are telling us that God the Father means serious business on this type of activity. The above verses say that pursuing guidance from soothsayers, mediums, the stars, the sun and the moon (astrology) are abominations before the Lord, and that you risk having Him set His face personally against you for engaging in these types of evil activities.

Notice the very strong wording being used by the Lord in these verses:

  1. Abomination
  2. Take heed
  3. Give no regard
  4. Do not seek after them to be defiled by them

God says you are literally prostituting yourself with Him if you engage in any of these types of occult activities.

The extremely strong wording being used by the Lord in these verses is showing us that this is a maximum intense kind of warning being given to His people – and under no circumstances are we to engage, experiment with, or even try out for one time any of these occult activities.

Specific Occult Activities to Avoid

Now here are some of the specific occult areas that we are to completely stay away from. Every single one of these occult areas are major door openers to the dark side where Satan and his demons roam – and you are rolling the dice and taking a very big chance that you will not draw demons in on you and your entire household if you decide to cross over and experiment, even for one time, any of these particular activities.

  • Fortunetelling – of any kind such as palm reading, crystal ball gazing, numerology, or seeing psychics.
  • Tarot Cards
  • Ouija Boards
  • Automatic Writing
  • Seances and any involvement with mediums or spiritists.
  • Astrology and any form of horoscopes.
  • I Ching
  • Hypnotism
  • Transcendental Meditation or any type of Far Eastern Meditation.
  • Crystals
  • Witchcraft
  • Satanism
  • Voodoo
  • Channeling
  • Reincarnation
  • Astral projection
  • ESP
  • Dungeons and Dragons
  • New Age Movement techniques and activities.
  • Necromancy

Conclusion

I am afraid with the increase of the New Age Movement and the fact that people are really starting to look for spiritual answers as to what the real meaning of life is – many people are falling into some of the above activities and they are thus putting both themselves and their families at terrible risk for the possibility of demonic activity that could set in on them.

Fortunetellers are all over the TV and newspapers, and most people really do not know the real dangers associated with engaging in these types of activities. They are like lambs being led to the slaughter due to their lack of knowledge on these issues!

Do not be surprised if some of you are led by the Lord sometime in your life to help someone out of a mess they may have got themselves into as a result of engaging in one or more of the above occult activities. Or God may lead you to someone who is thinking about trying some of these activities out, and He may send you in there to give them fair warning before they actually do it!

More and more people are dabbling and experimenting with different parts of the occult because they are dissatisfied with their lives.

They know the answers to the meaning of life is not found in the material things of this life, so they are looking for spiritual avenues to find true meaning and fulfillment in their lives.

What they do not know is they are going down wrong and dangerous paths to try and achieve spiritual fulfillment in their lives if they attempt to try out any of the above occult activities.

For those of you who may meet any Christians who have drawn demons in on them as a result of participating in any of the above occult activities – there is 4 step process that needs to be done in order to deliver them from the demons and restore order back into their lives.

  • Confess the specific activity before God as a sin and ask for His forgiveness.
  • Renounce the specific activity before God and tell Him that you will never, ever participate in that activity again.
  • Burn or throw away all books, objects, or items associated with this activity.
  • Directly engage with the demons by speaking out loud to the them, telling them they no longer have any legal right to stay attached to you since the occult activity has now been fully confessed and fully renounced before God the Father.
  • Then command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ and for them to never, ever come back on you again.

Once you confess this occult activity before God as a sin, renounce it by telling God you will never do it again, and then burn or throw away any items associated with this activity – the demons will no longer have any legal right to stay attached to you – and they will now have to go if you take your God-given authority as a believer and child of God and command the demons to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ!

If you run across someone in trouble with the above who is not a Christian, then you would first have to get them saved before you could have them go through this 4 step process for a deliverance.

If they are not willing to come to the Lord to get saved, then there is not much else you can do for them other than to stand in the gap behind the scenes and pray to God for their protection and that He move on them at the appropriate time to get them saved.

Once they are saved, then you can move in to get them delivered from the demonic bondage they may be in as a result of engaging in one or more of the above occult activities.

I will let you know if any more good stories come in on the above subject. I do not think we have seen the last on what may be coming down the road on other people drawing heavy demonic activity in on them and their lives as a result of engaging in some of the above occult activities.

    I had my palm read, Archangels Michael and Gabriel appeared to me because i can sense the presence of spirits
    3 weeks after i got the reading they appeared, then i began to see the spirit in the periphery
    they healed me of any hurt that caused me to get my palm read
    they knew i would start reading stuff online
    so i found out about the Law of Free Will that states that angels have the power to intervene and chase away demons but we have to ask for their help
    so last night i realized why they appeared after a fallen angel appeared and pretended to be Raphael (the archangel i have not yet met) but i knew he was lying as he did not have the same power they had
    i asked Angel Michael to remove any negative entities from my presence
    and he did as this demon was not the one that followed me home

    then i found this website tonight after trying a million things because i could see the demon next to me following me around after they pointed him out
    i did this and it left
    the weight was lifted

    this works do not doubt
    AND THANK YOU SIR FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

    i think you saved my life and are a messenger of God

  2. Gina - November 7, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    btw I am not a christian but i do believe in angels and demons and God

    not necessarily jesus but i know the angels are real
    this is why he sent his archangels as i believe in them and in order for it work i needed to believe in the creator and his angels
    he provided me with the materials to get through this
    and i believe he sent you on a mission to create this website
    so i thank you from the bottom of my heart

    • Ronan - July 14, 2016 at 7:44 pm

      Gina be very careful on “angel” worship as the fallen angles portray themselves as good but are the servents of the beast!
      Angel worship is false idoltry. Ask those entities next time they appear, “Do you proclaim that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?”
      If they cannot proclaim this then they are not from God the Father.
      God Bless You

  3. Gina - November 9, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    I did this… i did all this but i found another website that says you have to say SORRY
    i said this and i did this and i still saw the demons
    you can confess, ask forgiveness, renounce but if you’re not sorry it won’t help

    • Belvia Stevenson - August 23, 2016 at 5:56 pm

      Only those who belong to Jesus had the power to renounce demons. Mark 16:17, Acts 19:11-20

  4. Albert - November 22, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Gina, You stated that you do not necessarily believe in Jesus, correct? May I suggest you re-read the article, okay? The NAME is Jesus Christ is the only name that demons obey. They hate Jesus Christ. Hate him! because He kicked their tails and defeated and disarmed them of any power. Follow the instructions given in this article. Force yourself through the process, This is very, very important.

  5. Gina - November 24, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    I went to a church about it and everything and i do believe in a higher power such and i did pray to my Lord and God up in Heaven
    but i do not believe he incarnated in earth as Jesus Christ
    I think Jesus was just a prophet
    and if you think Jesus is the only name they respond to think again
    they respond to the God up in Heaven

    believe what you want but i’m telling you i went through this
    the night before the attack i got a visit from Archangel Michael who whispered in my ear and told me ‘you’ll be fine’
    and i know it was him cuz he felt totally different from the demon that attacked me the night after
    they do respond to a higher power and i called on Archangel Michael to remove them from my presence the night of the attack and it immeadiately flung out of my room
    but in order to remove them from my life i read this and confessed all my sins to the Lord in Heaven
    but i do not believe in Jesus and i did not call on his name
    so believe what you like… but this did happen
    and i left out the details about not believing in Jesus to the priest but he told me i had the power discernment… i could feel the presence of spirits ever since i was a little kid

    the only thing they respond to is the lord and whether you believe Jesus, Allah or wateva they respond to it
    Hindus, Muslims and Jews also perform exorcisms, believe in whatever you like but it’s the higher power that they are concerned about, not it’s name

    • Katherine Clark - February 28, 2017 at 9:47 am

      Gina,
      Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” I hope and pray that you will believe in Jesus as your savior. Please take the time to read for yourself the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts. Notice how Jesus disciples ran when he got arrested, but after he arose from the dead, and and after the Holy Spirit came down upon them, they were willing to proclaim his message, works, and salvation, even if that meant death to them — and most of them were killed for preaching the gospel = good news.

      John 4:25-26

      The woman said to him, “I know that the Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ).
      “when He comes, He will tell us all things.” Jesus said to her,” I who speak to you am He.”

      John 3:16

      “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

      Romans 5:8
      But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while yet we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

      1John 4:9

      In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only Begotten son into the world, that we might live through Him.

  6. toadian - December 3, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    Gina,

    If you don’t believe Jesus is the incarnate Son of God, you have NOTHING to fight with. You have to believe EVERYTHING the bible says about Jesus. Those so called angels you are talking about are demons! You can’t have angel coming to you rescue and not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Please except what i am saying to you. Jesus is the ONLY way. PERIOD.

  7. Angela J H - December 7, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    Gina the demons will do whatever it takes to make you second-guess our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. I believe in GOD, His SON JESUS CHRIST and the HOLY SPIRIT. You must have some love one interceding on your behalf to keep those demons down for NOW. They are laying low….they will be back. They are not worried about you because of your beliefs. Oneday they are going to show up bigger and better than before. I DO NOT wish that on my worse enemey. Again, someone is standing in the gap for you right now. But eventually you have to make the right decision and educate yourself about the bible. Ask God to come into your spirit and teach you His WORD. I love you my sister and GOD does too.

  8. Francis - December 14, 2011 at 1:13 am

    Gina I understand you. I can explain what you mean. Jesus is a made up name by people who wrote the bible. For all people who don’t believe you just don’t have knowledge to understand this puzzle. FIRST OF ALL THE ORIGINAL BIBLE WAS IN HEBREW. THERE IS NO JESUS BUT THERE IS YESHUA. ALL ENGLISH BIBLES ARE FAKE. THE ONLY ORIGNAL BIBLE IS TRUE WHICH IS IN HEBREW. TEHRE IS ONLY ONE TRUE GOD BUT REMEMBER JESUS IS JUST NAME PEOPLE USE TO CALL GOD.

  9. Jeremiah - January 14, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    No offense but your argument against Yeshua/Jesus is pretty flawed. You say that Jesus and God are complete opposites and a piece of evidence that proves that is Jesus’ complete authority over demonic powers. But would you not also say that the Lord, God almighty, would have also the same authority. Yes I am a christian and fear is not a concept that Jesus had taught on, but rather his love for us to actually go through the worst kind of death. I trust in the love of Jesus and I don’t fear him in the since that I’m scared of him, but rather in respect. How could Christians become a part of Satan and yet fight constantly with what you stated (organized religion) to be also satanic. In that way he kingdom would fair as it would be warring with each other. Jesus is one in God, they are the same. Though i must respect in your twisted view of accomplishing in help God the father yet to be truthful you are ill-informed

  10. Charlene - January 27, 2012 at 12:30 am

    It’s sad to see unbelievers come here leaving comments about things they know nothing about. The person who said Jesus is a made up name by man is so wrong and obviously never read the new testament or the bible or know any biblical history. If you read in Luke 1:31 An angel comes to Mary and tells her to name her son Jesus, “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus”. Also, you cannot truly believe in God if you do not believe in Jesus. We are told in John 14:6 “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. You cannot deny Jesus yet claim to believe in God. Jesus is part of the holy trinity, the Father Son and Holy spirit are three in one and the same, so if you deny the Son Jesus then you also deny the Father. To say Jesus is not the messiah is heresy and I pray the unbelievers here to repent now! Read the holy bible and you will learn the truth. The truth will set you free of your ignorance.

  11. Emily - January 27, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Someone Please Answer My Question: Is it wrong to perform “hands-on-healing?” What if one does it in the name of Jesus Christ, God and Holy Spirit? I recently took a wonderful class and learned how to do this, as I have felt “moved” to help people in this way for a few years. It’s similar to Reiki, where the healer channels Divine God/Christ energy into a person who needs healing. I know that it is not me doing the healing, but it is God the Father working through me. Jesus healed people in the bible and said that we too can do these things. The husband/wife team teaching this technique are lovely people who only want to do good, however I must admit, they are New Age. Their knowledge is taken from many different religions and modalities: shamanism, Native American traditions, buddism, Christianity, etc, and mixing it all up. There’s nothing satanic or dark about these people or their teachings. But I’m thinking perhaps the enemy is wearing an excellent disguise and that these teachers and myself were perhaps deceived? I don’t know.

    Ever since my Dad passed away last March, I’ve been miraculously pulled back to Catholic and Christian church. My Dad was a strict Catholic and a wonderful man, but although I was raised in that religion, I had too many issues with it and turned away from it. Now I receive great comfort from it (even though I still have issues) and from the huge presence of the Holy Spirit I feel there. In Catholic Mass, I take what’s good from it (and there is much good) and don’t focus on my problems with it. I’ve officially ( but privately in my heart and mind and soul) accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe in and love God with all my heart. In my heart I can say I’ve been born again and I feel much more relieved and peaceful. All this is amazing to me because I’ve been into the “New Age” thing for years. Now, in my reading and exploring and being pulled to Jesus’ side, I’m beginning to see that New Age and Christianity/Catholicism don’t really mix. And I’m worried about the hands-on-healing. Is that permitted? Did I open myself and my family up to demons? Is there a way I can do healings on people in Jesus Name? Do I have the right or am i breaking any laws? I love and fear God and really want to go to heaven one day. My quest for love and truth continues. Thanks for listening to my ramblings and any informed advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    • H. D. - January 28, 2017 at 1:29 am

      Hi Emily. The gifts of the Holy Spirit is real but there are also counterfeits of the Holy Spirit gifts. The real power of God flows through people who have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and has chosen to be a willing sacrifice to God.

      I know you’ve said you’ve official accepted Jesus as your Lord and saviour. But I can’t tell if you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit or have decided to offer yourself as living sacrifice to God.

      Seek to be lead by the Holy Spirit, and you’ll will automatically have difficulty sinning. Refer to the Bible to test whether any decision/information is true or false. The Holy Spirit, Jesus and Father God are one – they do not contradict. Contradiction implys its from the enemy.

      God sent the Holy Spirit to His people to guide and teach them.

  12. Charlene - January 27, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    No matter how good this hands on healing sounds, and no matter how many people you think yuo can help, if you ever hear the words “new age”, I would make a run for it. The whole new age movement is a deception to pull people away from the Lord. If you truly are a Christian I would stay away from the “new age” type healing. Word of caution, if you do a little research you will also find that the New Age Movement has many similarities as the occult such as reincarnation, channeling just to name a couple. The New Age movement and what they preach is purely demonic.

  13. benjamin - February 2, 2012 at 5:32 am

    Praise be to our LORD and Savior JESUS. I would like to share my thoughts. First of all to say that Michael and Gabriel appeared is quite mislead. The bible says that let any angel that does contrary to the word of GOD be accursed. Note that satan is a defeated fellow and is already condemned,he is under our feet. Philipians says that every knee will bow and every tongue confess that JESUS is Lord. Every demon even satan trembles at the name of Jesus. Jesus is Lord,without Him none shall make it to heaven. He is the Almighty,the Alpha and Omega.(Rev 1:8). Test everything and every spirit. May the peace of God which exceeds all human understanding be upon you.

  14. Levi - February 18, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    These unbelievers need help. God is not known by argument .just believe it will be well with you in Jesus name. Amen.

  15. Caroline - February 19, 2012 at 12:27 am

    Oh wow!! It is so sad to hear such distortions of who my MIGHTY LORD JESUS CHRIST truely is. Our salvation, our deliverer, our comfort, our guide, the rock of our salvation, the corner stone, the true messiah and SON of GOD ALMIGHTY. I am not surprised however! and to those who love JESUS, continue to have a heart to serve HIM and keep on keeping on!! because at the end of the day, when the dust settles, HIS WORD.. JESUS CHRIST will stand forever, Satan is defeated and no matter what….EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!!! Amen.

    (I will not comment any further. Be blessed with this truth).

  16. Somebody - February 23, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    I somewhat disagree with the statement that Horoscopes and Hypnotism open the doors for demons to come into your life. Sure, there is harm that can be done with these. BUT, God isn’t going to smite you for going to a hypnotist show or reading the horoscope on your favorite news website. Seems a little extreme. But good article all together.

    • H. D. - January 28, 2017 at 1:34 am

      God doesn’t smite you. Instead you have left his protection by doing the things He told you not to do.

      It is the demons that bring suffering /negatives to you. They are waiting for opportunities to kill, steal and destroy.

      Just because you don’t believe it, doesn’t make it any less true.

  17. Aaliyah - February 27, 2012 at 9:38 pm

  18. Mason - February 27, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    you know what i was raised in the religion of Mormonism but i don’t believe in it anymore. im more of what these people would call a soulless heathen (aka more pagan then anything) how about you Aaliyah?

  19. Lauren - February 27, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    i am a christain and i belive but i role play so im going to hell… really? what ever happend in TAKE THE LORD IN UR HEART AND ALL UR SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN or what about LOVE THY NEIGHBOR ?

  20. Emily - February 28, 2012 at 9:34 am

    Okay, really brief. Something jumped out at me in quickly skimming through Cassandra’s post. Role-playing. Is all role-playing considered a sin according to the Bible? I didn’t know that!! Could someone please point it out to me in scripture?

    I’m new in my baby-step walk with Jesus Christ [I’m originally Catholic, then fell away dabbling/searching in all sorts of New Age for something of the Light which resonated for me, but a deep strong pull brought me happily back to God-Jesus Christ-Holy Spirit in the Christian/Catholic) way]. I feel relieved, although switching the way my mind works now is interesting. It’s a process. I don’t know the Bible well at all, but am enjoying reading it now.

    Anyway, can someone on the know please clarify about role-playing? I really love the theater and movies (although I see it with new discerning eyes now) and my kids love to play pretend games. I just want to understand. Thanks.

    • Mike Bradley - March 1, 2012 at 2:11 am

      Emily,

      We are only referring to Dungeons and Dragons on the role playing. There is nothing wrong with acting and role playing in other areas. If you want to see how dangerous Dungeons and Dragons can be, just do a google search on “Dungeons and Dragson from a Christian perspective” and you will see other sites that delve into this topic more deeply.

      Mike

  21. Mike Bradley - February 29, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Cassandra,

    If you were the one who is a pagan and then put a link on our site to a
    pagan site, then sorry, we will not allow this.

    I know you disagree with our thoughts and opinions, but to us, pagan is
    the dark side and we will not advertise pagan sites on our site. If people
    want to check out those kinds of sites, they can google it and find it
    like they do ours.

    As far as crystals, we are not talking about crystals in salt. We are
    talking what some of the new agers do with them.

    As far as role playing, we are not talking about acting in plays, etc. we
    are just talking about dungeons and dragons. I am sure if you google a
    christian perspective on dungeons and dragons, you will see the arguments
    as to why many of us feel this is a dangerous game.

    I have been a Christian all of my life. I believe it to this day with all of my heart. That does not mean I cannot disagree with people of the same religion, however.

    Looking at many of the above comments, I see that a lot of the people who say that they are Christian are the ones talking of “destroying non-believers” and “you’re going to hell because of this”. Jesus taught love, not hate. He taught us to love God and love people, not to point our fingers and judge. God is the judgement, not us. To even say that you can “step into God’s point of view” is ridiculous because he is omnipotent and the Almighty. How could a human even begin to comprehend what God is thinking? You are not immediately condemned for sinning or making mistakes. If that were the case, the reason for Jesus’ death is utterly pointless. He died to save us, not to condemn us. Saying Dungeons and Dragons is inviting demons is ridiculous. It is a game. You make a character and you give them points and you put them into situations. In no way is conjuring, inviting, or talking with demons ever present in any way. Many of the people on here are getting into everything that is said a little too much. Mike, some of the things you’ve said I agree with. There is plenty I disagree with, however, and I want it said that your word is not law. You are one believer of many. Your view point, despite having a website, doesn’t make you right. For any one person to come here and believe everything you say without their own research is close minded. I’m not saying you are forcing yourself on anyone, I’m not saying that to believe everything you say is wrong, but to talk with many narrow minded views and the ways you’ve written some of these things is giving no room for you to be wrong. There should always be room for you to be wrong, because from your posts and several of the comments, it is either one or the other when both could be right. Being a Christian is more than what one person says, and everyone needs to understand that. Think of it scientifically. When you test a hypothesis, you cannot prove something 100% because the world is constantly changing. There could be any number of variables that could pop up that changes your hypothesis. Thus, you can only state that your hypothesis was correct for that circumstance. There needs to be room for more information.

    Next: Showing God’s love by telling people they’re wrong, that they will be destroyed when God comes back, telling people they are going to hell; none of these show God’s love in any way. All of these are cruel, close minded, prejudices that need to be thrown away. I understand many of your points about how things were done in the Old Testament. This is something that needs to be looked at. I’m not saying that the Old Testament is old and doesn’t count any more, but I AM saying that it is old. It was written well over 1000 to 2000 years ago. To view 2012 with the mind set of 2000 year old text isn’t fair.

    Luke 6:37, “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.” Jesus said this in the New Testament. How are other Christians saying that they love Jesus and that they are preaching love when they are completely ignoring what he said?

    Luke 5:30, “But the Pharisees and their teachers of religious law complained bitterly to Jesus’ disciples, “Why do you eat and drink with such scum (in Greek, “Tax collectors and sinners?”)” Jesus answered them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor-sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.”
    If Jesus said this, but we don’t act on it, how can we say we are lovers and believers in Christ? Being a Christian shouldn’t be a pick or choose thing. You can’t pick one thing to preach, but ignore and trample on all the others. If someone doesn’t think that they’ve done anything wrong or sinned, then that is between them and God or between them and whatever they believe in. It is not our place to step in and interfere with other people’s beliefs.

    The Bible says that Jesus Christ is “the same yesterday, today, and forever”. This is true. However, humans are constantly changing. God put us here for reasons ONLY HE KNOWS. Keep this in mind. The Bible says that God is the same, but if we are to love others as our selves and to treat people how we would want to be treated, we cannot justify prejudices by the Old Testament, but then preach the New Testament. All of the Bible counts.

    As Christians, we should know how to love with a role model such as Jesus, but not a lot of us are doing a really great job of showing that. If you love Jesus and want to follow him, you should be able to talk to your fellow man in a civil and polite manner, without condemning, judging, hating, or pointing fingers.

    If you have any questions for me, comments, concerns, by all means, please talk to me.

      Thank you. I needed to hear your perspective. I am returning to God, and have been conflicted by varying viewpoints. I trust my instinct, and a lot of what has been conveyed here on other comments has not rung true for me. Your contribution has been quite the contrary. Thank you for giving me some direction.

    • nicole marie sprague - August 6, 2017 at 9:40 pm

      I agree with you and it is straight from the bible not to judge, see this behavior keeps people away from jesus and makes it very hard to try to explain anything about jesus to others and this is sad, because he is real and he is the only one path to god , from what I have learned of my savior whom I am so truly grateful for is that he taught being humble, and to love your brother,sister,neighbor and enemy and to only follow him which I now understand because I had angels interacting with me, which led me to esoteric studies and complete demonic attacks and the only way to stop it all was the bible, jesus,asking for forgiveness and no more sinning..I truly believe that we are not to interact with angels at all since they came to me because I saw children suffering and wanted to help them so I believed they were good angels I havent read any where so far where the bible tell you to call out to angels so far I have only read that god has angels and they are his and there are the fallen so there is no way to discern this is why I love and understand why he only allows one path to him through his only son, it makes so much sense, I am so grateful for the forgivness and understanding I have receivedd I just want to add that it harms people when christians do the opposite of what the bible teaches it scares people away from god and jesus but I will not judge for I know better I jst want to tell christians to remember what the bible teaches about being humble so we do not scare people away with arguing, your words were perfect thank you.

    role playing games don’t make all players want to do occult stuff. I play dungeons and dragons all the time but just cuz the characters do magic and which craft doesn’t mean the players do too. i also play other games like ‘devil may cry’ where i play a half demon who kills evil spirits and that isn’t much of an influence on my life. i don’t think games can mess with someone’s religion at least not me. everything else i understand but GAMES are not demonic. im sticking with that

  25. kel - April 1, 2012 at 12:32 am

    Keep fighting the good fight. The world is fooled into believing many of these things such as tarot, or fortunes are harmless. VERY dangerous activity. I liken it as putting a wide opening in your protective hedge of spiritual security. I also believe we may be living closer to the end times, where our guard should be up. Doesn’t the bible say there will be many demons who will walk the earth in search of souls to ruin or something to that effect. This information needs to be out there. Thank you for publishing it and I hope people WAKE UP!

  26. maizie - April 1, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    The “mark of the beast” is some type of occultic designation and the “taking the mark” allows for the unholy trinity to inhabit the one who takes the mark. Satan copies God because he covets all God has.
    Satan will copy John 14:23 in those who “take the mark of the beast”.

  27. jisca - April 2, 2012 at 1:01 pm

    Its either most of you are demon possesed or just don’t get it.I live in israel and am a jew. My father is a rabbi.look, even the acient hebrew bible makes it obvious that the messiah is jesus.and his name is perfectely written.dungeons and drangons,whatever that you name is bad.I know so. It does not mean because you play it you will go to hell, but you are going to open a doorway to whichthe demons will enter into you.demons can turn into angels of light, so they can even take michael, gabriel or even jesus’s appearence. The first thing is to ask”who is your master”the hesitation in his voice will tell you that he is a demon.horoscopes and all those things that help you see through your life are all bad. God tells us not to council anyone who predics the future or things that will come. Or else God himself would have told us how our day and lives would go as soon as we wake up.if you all are real christians you would understand. But am really shocked by some answers. Thank you, jisca

  28. maizie - May 12, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Aaliyah, You are not telling the truth and have lied. Using the occult to “help people” is not from God.

    I have asked the Lord God to destroy the works of satan in your life and I pray you will reject lies and deception and instead repent and ask God for a love of the truth.

  29. teshu - May 16, 2012 at 2:00 am

    currently i have been desperate in my life,i have been working very hared to improve my life for the past 7 year to bring success in my life believing that god will help those who strive.But in reality i have been failed in my plan for many times repeatedly for the past seven years.but now i am considering to use Magic to bring success in my life.i know so many people in my country are successful with this system.i am in conflict to decide , it is not about going to hell or death because i prefer success rather to live long ,it is about denying got whom i was trusting from my child hood or not, i am not sure that god really help those who strives from my experience.

  30. maizie - May 16, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    Teshu, please consider Jesus words to us, “Come to Me, you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest”. Matthew 11:28

    God has a plan for you and it does not require “magic”. It will be a life of fulfillment and peace to be in God’s will. God is the prosperer of our soul and He makes for us a straight path.

    Satan comes only to kill, steal and destroy. Satan has diverted what belongs to God by leading many into magic and other things which will bring them great sorrow.

    1 Samuel 28:10

    Teshu, 1 Samuel 28:10 is an example of Saul turning to the occult (satan’s power)long after God’s Holy Spirit had withdrawn from Saul–1 Samuel 16:14.

    All those unbelievers who are seeing and talking with so called angels, including Michael and Gabriel should be very careful. There’s only one name given unto men under Heaven whereby we can be saved, the name JESUS! The bible says,” Neither is there salvation in any other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”(Acts 4:12). The so called angels are actually Demons-” And no marvel; Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Cor. 11:14) See live manifestation in the bible, ” 16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:

    17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.

    18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.” (Acts 16:16-18).

  35. ted - June 28, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    a lot of you here do not understand. we live in a natural world controlled by the devil we are fighting against the enemy he can enter anytime you go against god’s word. he is so good at disgusing himself many of you dont get it. in the supernatural world there are many laws of the universe made by god. no you cannot play with horscopes maybe once or twice but what happens the demons draw you into coming back for more. god is a jealous god he is jealous of us and does not want us to be stupid and fall into the snares of the trap of the devil that regins here on earth.

  36. ted - June 28, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    yes these so called angels are demons. islam and mormons were founded by so called angels appearing to joseph smith and muhammand. these angels cannot tell you gospel only jesus can.

    I recently went to a psychic because in the past another psychic told me that I had a lot of negative energy and had to do something about it, at the time I did not have the money to pay so I left it alone. 15 years later I’m having the same problems no luck and no matter how hard I tried things don’t go the way I want them to go, so I went to this psychic and she told me that I or someone close to me had played with the ouija board. I collect board games and I do own one but never played with it, is not even in my house, its stored with all my games in a wharehouse at least half an hour away. she said that just the fact that I own one had left me and my house open to evil spirits. she ask me to call my wife to come to her office and when she saw her she said your wife has a spirit within her right now and there are 13 portals open in your house. My wife doesn’t believe this, she thinks the psychic just wants money. Is there anyone who can tell me if this is possible and what can we do about it?

  38. terri - December 7, 2012 at 11:24 am

    I was using an online site for anwsers about a relationship, even though I know it’s wrong as a christian.I’m not sure what happened, but I realised it was wrong and stopped doing it. I prayed for forgiveness and feel led to post about it, though I never post online about anything. There are no anwsers in the occoult…stay away and trust only God.

    Many Christians have no clue what the occult is…I've lost friends by revealing some examples. Jewelry ( the ankh, the Italian horn, crystals, toys, games, pools, videos, clothing ( with the peace sign which is really a death rune used by hitler), martial arts, yoga, masons,a Shriners, eagles, certain silver jewelry, medical hypnosis,

    • Jane - May 5, 2017 at 10:40 am

      Dear Carol Catell Moorby, I’m not trying to be a smarty, I just want to understand why you think eagles are of the occult. An eagle is one of God’s magnificent creations, one of God’s creatures. I also like owls, they are beautiful, but I think of them as God’s creatures, nothing more, I don’t worship them. Also I don’t understand what you mean by pools?? Do you mean like a little pond or a fountain that might be in a backyard? Please explain, thanks, your sister in Christ, Jane

  40. Carol moorby - January 28, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    Wevare not to judge hearts but the Bible does tell is to,judge by the word so if someone is winning against the word, we have an obligation to warn them . Remember, love the sinner BUT HATE the sin. Thwre is such a thing as righteous hatred against satan. Webare NOTbto be involved in the occult because there are severe consequences. Themonly way one goes to he’ll is if they reject Jesus Christmand what he did on the cross for us.That being said, disobedience to God does bring other consequences. Sickness, disease, mental or emotional problems can entrap you and you must renounce your sin. God has already forgiven used past, present and future sins. It is a one time commit and was done 2,000 years ago on the cross. We forgive because we are forgiven. Love for,another is telling them to truth. Jesus got righteous lay angry over sin, we should too, but we have to recognize that it’s principalities Andorra of darkness that satan uses to trip is up. Do,NOTnbe ignorant od Satans devices. We must not only read the word but STUDY it to show ourselves approved! There are too many sacre cow teachings ninth church today. I,thank God that the Holy Spirit reveals ALL,IF you are seeking,the whole truth! We are under grace now, not law! So important to,check out every ministry and pastor by the word of God. So many are misinformed concerning the scriptures and are teaching error! In the last days even the ELECT might be deceived! The occult is very evil and counterfeiting! I implore everyone who is involved to get out now!

    First of all, I really appreciate this excellent information on this sight. I do believe I have something inside of me or around me. I guess I have been extremely ignorant of how negatively God looks upon the Occult, and exactly what the Occult is operationally speaking. I definitely am a reborn Christian. Looking for more friends in God who are experiencing these things, or have conquered them. At, 35 I still have so much to learn. smh

  43. truth - July 13, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    @Laura, @Aaliyah
    Folks these two people above whose names I’ve listed are perfect examples in which we can see how the world have been blinded by Satan. Just read their comments.

    @Aaliyah said she assisted in 4 exorcisms, and still sees nothing wrong with Palm Reading etc.
    Well your eyes still need to open, because there are many false prophets etc. And if you didn’t exorcise those demons in the name of Jesus (Mark 16:17; Luke 10:19), you just placed another bigger demon in the person to quite down the smaller one, for a time.

    @Aaliyah you should read Deuteronomy 18:10-13 and Matthew 7:21-23, you ought to be very careful.

    @Laura, there is much work to be done, as with all of us. I don’t know what religion you are but I can tell you the truth. That Jesus Christ is real, he came to earth and died for all of our sins and that he rose on the 3rd day. And no one can take his life, he gave it for us. So that we by our faith in him through grace we might be saved.

    @Kel, I agree with you. People need to, Wake Up!

    All in all, I’ve just used Laura and Aaliyah to make a point of what’s happening in the world.
    I’m not attacking them, I’ll prayer for them as well as others, for we got saved to serve.
    And we ought to love others as we love ourselves. And if you don’t love yourself, well I have news for you. Jesus Christ LOVES YOU, he died for you, try to get to know him.
    It’s easy, just invite him in. All you have to do is say a simple prayer from your heart, I’ve given you a basic example below, you just reach out and speak to him in your own words.

    Love you all, in Jesus name.

    [Prayer]
    Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, and that I have sinned against you. I am sorry, please forgive me. Come into my heart and I’ll make you my Lord and Saviour. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

    Thank you so much for this article. I have practiced almost all the above and in some cases i could actually seem to get some results. I wanted to quite alcohol, as I was addicted. But each time i used hypnosis, or mind control, or transcendental meditation, it would work for a while, I would stop drinking but then I would over eat to compensate. I eventually got fired from my Job, due to drunken behavior and I realized how useless the practices are. The worst part is that some, like new age literature quote the bible and Jesus’ teachings as their inspiration. The is actually a book entitled Jesus thought it too. Now I have put all my trust in the Lord Jesus and although my situation is bad, I know my breakthrough restoration in on the way. Thanks also for the spiritual warfare articles. May God bless you.

  45. Mylan_Monroe - September 9, 2013 at 4:45 am

    I believe im in serious trouble. Is there such a thing as in being too far gone? I wasnt raised in a religious home whatsoever and from reading this i know i am from a long line of family curses from both sides. My dads side has war, suicide, addiction and my mothers side is mafia and nothing can be found of her father or beyond for everything was burned before arriving to america. My parents were very very abusive in both mental and phsyical ways but my mother took it tto the sexual level. I can remember ghosts being around as far back as i can remember, i was teased so bad in school i wanted to kill myself since 3 grade, the first time i had sex i was raped in the street in front of my house, my sister has had an abortion, and i was a former paranormal investigator. Ive seen a demon with my own two eyes. I wont ever forget it. Ram horns with a bull face and a hoop in its septum. Ive seen ghosts and ive heard them whisper in my ear. Am i too far gone for redemption? Or was i born to go to hell?

  46. Chris - October 27, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Mylan, there is no such thing as being far too gone. Jesus’ death and resurrection was enough for you to be forgiven. Place your faith in Him, find a Bible and read it. Find a fellow Christian – talk to them, confess your sins before God and repent before Him. He wants to forgive you and He loves you deeply!

    I pray this reaches you.

  47. Tholang - April 15, 2014 at 1:17 am

    To Mylan Monroe

    Here’s the solution, first believe in Jesus, then confess your sins, everything that you recall doing, everything that does not sit well within you, say it aloud in prayer and ask God to handle it for you. Then rebuke all evil spirits in the Name of Jesus Christ, mention all of them that you know are attacking you and your family.. abortion, drug abuse, physical/emotional abuse, everything.. say that in Jesus name, I rebuke all these evil spirits and all forces and calamities that are not from God’s Kingdom, say “you are brought by the Blood of Jesus Christ and they have no authority over you. In Jesus’ Name say “get out of me, flee away and never return. I suggest you do this everyday when you pray, and take note of evil spirits that will attack your mind, i.e. doubt, fear, thinking immoral things such as sex.. as soon as you realize what you are about to think, rebuke the evil spirit in Jesus Name, trust the Lord, There is no other name like His name, I experienced that during my sleep I’d have all these immoral dreams, but as soon as I was aware of this spirit, I said in my sleep “In Jesus Name I pray”, believe you me, just that! Therefore God knows your distress, He knows you more than you know yourself, so call on Him and ask Him to forgive you for all you have done in thought, in words, and in doing, ask God to also forgive you for sins of omission, sins we commit without realizing that we are sinning, in Jesus Name ask God to pardon you and absolve you from all these sins. In Jesus Name Amen. DOING THIS EVERYDAY, WILL TRULLY HELP YOU. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, TURN AWAY FROM ALL ACTIVITIES YOU SAY YOU’VE ENGAGED IN THAT YOU KNOW ARE NOT PLEASANT TO GOD, IN OTHER WORDS, REPENT. ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOUR, PUT YOUR LIFE IN HIS HANDS, AND TRUST ME, THE LORD WILL NOT LET YOU SLIP AND FALL IF YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN HIM.

    GOD BLESS YOU.

  48. Aura - April 15, 2014 at 1:57 am

    Here is my opinion to Mylan. In your situation its way out, like to a lot of other people , but only for you in this situation better will be to go the pastor in the church , who do deliverens of the darkness , and you will be free from all of this and also connection from your all other family members wrong doings. You will fell , that you want to fly , because this will make you free. And don’t look back , look in front of you ……here is what you still can do , and forgive about the past…you can’t change…and the best that you understand that something its not right…God got his ways to talk to the people , and here for you answer…Let God bless you and give the way for you to be delivered.Aura

  49. Zina - April 15, 2014 at 10:32 am

    If spirituality is about not going on your feelings when some thing doesn’t feeling right how long do you wait to get out of the situation. When you go to the pastor and still every thing gets turned upside down and is m are worst what do you do? I believe that the devil operate in the church as well so who do you trust. Sometimes satan wants you to take everything you know about your family and make you hate them even more. No family is perfect and neither are we so we need to stop looking for perfection in ourselves and others. Just pray to God cause even the pastors h as his faults.

  50. Jay - August 12, 2015 at 10:42 pm

    AMEN, AMEN and AMEN to Tholang (4/15/2014)

    Even confessing aloud to GOD once, really repenting and following through in real life (and really mean it!) will make a REAL difference. Let is ALL out and place it in HIS hands. You can do this while driving instead of singing to the radio or cd at the top of your lungs. Be cautious though, the Lord WILL lift you and you may have just a bit of trouble getting out of and walking from your car for a while. You WILL know the Lord is right there with you. This would also be a great time to chase away the “spooks” if you can gather your wits from THIS experience. I was not able to at that time because my feet weren’t touching the ground for quite a while. (I’m old and had a lot of sins to confess). WOW!

  52. Kevin Stone - September 6, 2017 at 5:14 pm

    I didn’t see anything listed about Divining Rods, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, or Water Witching. I can do all the above really well and sucessfully, so I guess that means it’s ok? I live in the heart of whats considered the Bible Belt. I don’t know of any others that do this anywhere around in 3 or 4 states. It seems everybody is afraid to answer my questions. I was born with this ability and a few more not “tellable” abilities as well.
