CONUNDRUM: A Confusing or difficult question.
In my Personal Spiritual Encounter sessions I am constantly amazed at how many people who seek my help have dabbled in the occult. We’re talking Christians here, not those who are ignorant of biblical teaching. They tell of calling psychics or going to fortune tellers. Even seeking séances. When I ask if they knew such actions constituted witchcraft and opened them to demons, they often shrug their shoulders as if it were no more serious than a parking ticket. The first reason for this disconnect is the lack of warnings from the pulpit. Most church congregants tell me they’ve never heard a sermon about such things. And they’ve certainly not heard a message about the dangers of getting demons from occult investigation. All such things go under the heading of divination, and it’s not a minor infraction to God.
Simply put, divination is searching for what can’t be determined by the natural senses. The very word “divination” is found in most Bible translations such as the Authorized King James Version (KJV) and the New International Version (NIV). See, for example, the condemnations of Deuteronomy 18:10, 2 Kings 17:17, Jeremiah 14:14, Ezekiel 12:24, 13:6, 21:23, and Acts 16:16 in the KJV. In the NIV consider Genesis 44:5, Leviticus 19:26, Deuteronomy 18:14, 1 Samuel 15:23, and Isaiah 2:6. Examples of such indulgences would be horoscopes, fortune telling, palm reading, Ouija Boards, séances, Runes, and consulting tarot cards. These examples are by no means exhaustive. Satan lures victims to attempt pulling back the veil of the unknown. The devil wants humans to dispense with our trusting God for the future instead of peering into the realm of reality beyond what can be discerned by bodily senses..
Our International School of Exorcism® has several of its 30 courses devoted to explaining what’s behind this search for the supernatural, apart from God and His Word. Courses such as “Introduction to Spiritual Warfare,” “Satan & the Origin of Evil,” and “A Survey of Demonic Activity” lay all this out in understandable teaching that is essential information of those who want to drive back the devil. Knowledge is power over the confusing, conundrum of the occult. Isn’t it time that you enrolled TODAY? To enroll CLICK HERE.
An encouraging word: GOD IS WISER THAN MEN.
“The foolishness of God is wiser than men,” Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 1:25. I think about this scripture every time I hear some pompous pundit of science declare there is no God; all that exists somehow happened by fortuitous accident. Whether it is the creation of the universe or the moral law of God, mere men somehow think they know better. But take all the accumulated wisdom of all the ages, add it together and you are nowhere near the wisdom of the Almighty. That alone should spur us to read His Word with greater enthusiasm. How much of the Lord’s wisdom have you put in your heart today?
