Ever wonder how a psychic is able to accurately predict things in the near future? Not all psychics are actually able to this, but some of them are.
In His Word, God tells us that there are spirits, familiar spirits, unclean spirits and demons all around us. They roam the planes of our planet. They not only harass, but they listen and watch, and they look for opportunities to communicate with living people.
If an unclean spirit or a demon can get someone interested in interacting with them, by either listening to them, or even by conversing with them, then they have the hope of leading that person deeper into the realm of spiritism. God warns us not to consult with these spirits, and He tells us that doing so is an abomination unto Him.
There shall not be found among you any one
that makes his son or his daughter to pass
through the fire, or that uses 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
One of the reasons is because these are the very ones who rebelled against God and were banished from His Kingdom. They are the enemies of God, the very ones whom Jesus came to defeat by the cross. Another reason is because their goal is to try to keep the unsaved from being saved, and to try to cause the saved Christian to delve into all types of sin. They are deceivers and their ways are subtle, even gentle, and they are seductive.
Ouija boards, tarot cards, crystal balls, tape recorders and digital voice recorders are all widely used to communicate with these spirits. Spirits are also able to communicate to our thoughts and imaginations. Some "psychics" are able to concentrate and get their mindset to a place where they are mentally open to these influences, i.e., they are able to recognize them and hear from them.
Imagine the excitement and seduction of trying to communicate with the spirits "on the other side", and having that spirit actually answer you, or acknowledge you in some way. Then, you ask it a question, and it answers you. Perhaps it tells you something that will soon occur in your life, a near future event pertaining to you or one of your loved ones. It is kind, accommodating, even polite. Soon enough that spirit, and others, to your amazement, are completely at your disposal. They are willing to tell you anything. Then they tell you they can not only tell you things, but they can perform various tasks for you. All you need is some knowledge of basic magic. Cast a spell, and they will see it through, if God so allows.
The soft subtle seduction is powerful, and before you know it, you have become a "psychic". But this is an abomination unto God. It not only insults Him, and is a sin, but the deeper the practitioner is dragged into the dark world of spiritism, the further from God he goes, and the further from the truth of Jesus and His salvation he is carried.
How it Works
Jane is talking to her boss, Mary, on the phone. Mary tells Jane: "I need you to fly out to Washington next week to attend the meeting. You'll probably be there for at least three days..."
Jane's husband, Tom, is out running some errands on his day off, and decides to stop in and check out the local psychic. He's heard she is pretty accurate, and decides to try it out, just for kicks of course.
He sits down at a table with the psychic and she begins doing her mumbo jumbo and then she tells him: "oh, I see your wife is going on a trip to Washington next week."
When Tom returns home later on, he asks Jane if she really has to go to Washington next week. To his amazement, she does!
Because these spirits are all around us, everywhere, and some of them tend to follow people around, they were there and heard the conversation between Jane and her boss. Since these spirits can seemingly be anywhere instantly, and watching Tom, they followed him into the psychic, where, when the psychic began to call on the spiritual realm of beyond, they obliged her with the information they had. The psychic has no power or means from within to predict, for they, like all physical objects and beings, are bound by the physical laws of nature. Flesh, bone, cells, etc, are restricted to the physical laws of nature. To see a future event, outside of our own physical realm, it takes a being who lives outside of the time and space of our physical realm.
There is no mystery here. Communication with the spirits, and their influence on the imaginations and thoughts is possible, and God warns us not to partake is this - because it is possible and does happen.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:
( Satan and his spirit cohorts are alive, well and
active. Through “ghosts”, “fortune tellers”, “psychics”, “tarot”, “clairvoyants”,
“ouija boards” etc. etc….. he tricks and deceives many. The end result of
dabbling in and becoming dependent on these practices is spiritual death and
often physical, mental, emotional, social and economic disaster….. Keygar )
Psychics (take 2)
by David J. Stewart
"Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God." -Leviticus 19:31
It's psychic mania! Never before have there been so many psychics, crawling out of the sewer, seducing the masses, and getting filthy rich. As we read in the above Scripture, God forbids anyone from regarding them which have a "familiar sprit" (i.e., those who are familiar with demonic spirits). One after another, it seems that every month we are hearing about a new "psychic" (also called a "medium") who claims to have connections with THE OTHER SIDE.
The Word of God teaches that when the body dies, their spirit will either be carried to Heaven by angels, or sent to Hell to suffer torment (Luke 16:22,23). Although hard to grasp, since God is often only viewed as a loving God, the Bible clearly teaches that God will take VENGEANCE upon those who die in their sins, having not obeyed the Gospel of Jesus Christ, "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord..." -2nd Thessalonians 1:8,9. It is clear from the Bible that the spirits of the dead cannot return to speak with us, nor send messages through psychic mediums.
Psychics are of the Devil, who become willing channels of Satan's power. There's is no doubt that some psychics are real, and do indeed posses Satanic power. It has been documented that some psychics have helped criminal investigators in missing persons cases. It is also true that many psychics have made complete fools of themselves, like when Sylvia Browne stated in January of 2006 that the trapped West Virginia miners were alive; BUT, as it later turned out, they were all dead, but one. Gotcha!
People are so woefully ignorant of the Scriptures that they've even begun to believe that their pets have psychic powers, and that some animals communicate through a form of ESP. The Word of God is clear that only mankind has a spirit. Animals have souls, as far as a heart, mind and will; BUT, they cannot receive Christ as Saviour, and do not have spirits. The soul is one's ability to think (mind), feel (heart), and make decisions (will). The spirit is that which separates humans beings from the animal world. Animals do not have a conscience, a moral compass to guide them. When the Bible speaks in Jeremiah 17:9 about the deceitful and wicked "heart" of man, it is speaking of man's sinful spirit, his sin nature ... "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" The heart is man's sub-consciousness, who he or she really is.
At best, we are all horrible sinners (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:10,23; 6:23; 1st John 1:8,10). This is why we all need a Saviour, to forgive our sins. Thankfully, Jesus Christ shed His blood to pay for all our sins. This is why eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15; 6:23). All we have to do to be saved is to believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour ... "Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..." -Acts 16:30,31. You'll never hear that from a psychic, because they are Satanic.
"For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD." -Jeremiah 29:8
Now we even see such blasphemies as "Psychic Gifts in the Christian Life" in magazines. God's Holy Spirit is not a power which can be channeled, manipulated, or turned on and off like a water-faucet. Carefully note that such alleged "Christian" magazines use the occult language: "Tools To Connect," "Our God Spots," "Finding Missing Persons," "Games To Access Sensitivities," "Channeling Holy Spirit." It's all demonic! To the unsuspecting victim, who is not knowledgeable concerning the Truth of the Word of God, this may well appear as a Christian publication; BUT, it certainly is not!
Millions of people today are falling victim to these New Age Satanists, who claim to have powers from God; BUT, their power (if any) is directly from Satan. The Holy Spirit is not for sale, as Simon, the former sorcerer, found out In Acts 8:19,20 ... "Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money." How dare these psychics make tens-of-millions of dollars selling books, holding seminars, selling psychic readings, while exploiting the name of Christianity for their own personal gain.
Satan is a master deceiver, and he is subtly at work in all of today's psychics. Don't let their Christian appearance fool you, they are whited sepulchres filled with dead men's bones. Psychics are an abomination unto God, and will lead you into Hell! They speak lies in the name of truth. They offer demonism in the name of spirituality.
BEWARE OF PSYCHICS!!!
