Where are they getting their information from? January 24, 2008Posted by mercedescoleen in God, They are NOT Angels of God.

Many people claim to receive information from angels. However, those who are wise must investigate the power source of these individuals prior to coming under their power. This is because these individuals may very well be witches (Ex 22: 18), wizards (Deut 18:11), necromancers (Deut 18: 11), charmers (Ps 58: 6), enchanters (Deut 18: 10), consulters with familiar spirits (Deut 18:11).
All of these terms are found in scriptures and refer to people who us incantations, enchantments, practice magic, witchcraft, fortunetelling, has a familiar spirit (demon) , consults with the dead about the future. In fact, God warned Israel to put away these people from the land and even to kill them. He wanted to be the one His people consulted about the future:
So why are you trying to find out the future by consulting mediums and psychics? Do not listen to their whisperings and mutterings. Can the living find out the future from the dead? Why not ask your God? (Isa 8: 19)
Why should we refrain from seeking the help of these individuals
a. Devils are the source of their power.
There is a truth in scripture related to idol worship which applies here. God wants His people to avoid idol worship because demons are the power source behind the miracles, signs and wonders. Here are some evidences in scriptures:
Deut 32: 17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
b. Idol worship is equivalent to demon worship
This is similar to the previous point, but I wanted to make it clear. Here is what the scriptures say:
Ps 106: 34-37
They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them
But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works
And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils
And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with , and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood
Also read 1 Cor 10: 19,20
c. The demons which are represented by the idols will lead you astray:
Zech 10: 2 “for the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie and have told false dreams. They comfort in vain..”
King Ahab learnt this the hard way and went to his death. Furthermore, do the witches ever tell you that your departed loved one is in a place of torment? Do they ever tell about Jesus and the need for eternal salvation?
God made us and wants to be worshipped as God. Any nation or person who worships devils or seeks information from them brings a curse on themselves and the wrath of God. Pharaoh thought that his demons were more powerful than God, but the Lord God exposed the futility of serving them by annihilating him and his armies.
d. Idol/demon worship is accompanied by impurity and other evil works
Scriptures and our knowledge of the occult reveal that idol worship/demon worship/witchcraft is often accompanied by:
human sacrifice (of innocent blood) which pollutes the land with blood and brings a curse even as Cain was cursed. DEMONS NEED BLOOD IN OR DER TO GET SOULS INTO HELL. Israel adopted the practices of the heathen and sacrificed their children in fire (Ps 106: 38). 1 Kings 21: 16 says that King Manasseh shed innocent blood very much and filled Jerusalem with it. What exactly did he do? He made his son (and others) to pass through the fire and became a witch (2 Kings 21: 6).
The practice of human sacrifices causes me to wonder about the power source behind the abortion practice. Is it a disguised satanic source for human sacrifices?
Idol/demon worship is accompanied by sexual perversion. Second Kings 23: 7 reveals that the worship of demons was accompanied by ritual homosexuality. Moreover, this was practiced in the house of the Lord. This explains why nations that accept witchcraft are invaded by this sin and why their churches suffer.
Whose report will we believe? God warns us to escape. Let’s seek God’s way and escape His wrath which will come on those who practice witchcraft. Be blessed today!
