The Occult is Real

In today's modern society, a lot of people regularly check their horoscopes. Some think that it is just harmless fun, but that is not true.  Horoscopes, tarot cards, fortune tellers, palm readers, etc., are all part of what the bible calls divination, and divination/sorcery is condemned by the Bible in both the New and the Old Testament.  And it's pretty clear that the Bible does not condemn things which are not real and harmful.

Deuteronomy 18:10:  "There shall not be found anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, any one who practices divination, a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer" 

Revelation 21:8:  But as for the cowardly, those with no faith, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."

The whole "New Age" movement, where man achieves a new consciousness through the mind, is also part of the occult. The new age says that we are all "gods" if we just meditate on being a god and "finding our inner self."   Astral projection, where the soul leaves the body and goes to other places invisibly, is part of all of that.  There are numerous covens (groups of witches) which meet regularly in the US. A simple internet search of "wicca and coven" will show you where they are in your area. And don't kid yourself - Satan acts through these people whether they know it or not. Their sacraments are worship of mother earth, fornication, and child sacrifice, and they have convinced most Americans through the Green movement, free love, and abortion to adopt these three unholy things.

An interesting and eerie story concerns the downfall of John Lennon, who married Yoko Ono, a self-proclaimed witch.  The last days of John Lennon were not pretty.  He had written a song, "The Ballad of John and Yoko," which included the line - "The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me."  And he had earlier made the statement that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus Christ. His song "Imagine" extols atheism as a wonderful thing.  He had gotten involved with Hinduism with all of its false gods and transcendental meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. On the Mike Douglas Show, before he died, he came across as incoherent and looking very strange.  He wrote the song "Helter Skelter," which Charles Manson used as his theme song to start a revolution in America. Charles Manson's followers murdered Sharon Tate and her unborn baby (a preview of things to come when the Supreme Court later made abortion legal). Sharon Tate was the wife of the child molester Roman Polanski, who directed the satanic movie "Rosemary's Baby," which was filmed in the Dakotas apartment complex in New York City.  Later on, John Lennon lived in the Dakotas apartment complex, and was murdered by Mark Chapman in front of it, on the feast of the Immaculate Conception. 

Fooling around with the occult may seem interesting and fun for a while, but in the end, there is nothing but pain and sorrow, because the entity behind it all is not God, but satan.  If you know of any kids messing around with a Ouija board, it's best to take it away from them and burn it. The movie "The Exorcist" was based on a true story, and it all began when an Aunt taught her nephew how to divine spirits using a Ouija Board. Parker Brothers sells these things as a board game, but don't be fooled - This thing is a demonic gateway, and the things moving the planchette are demons, who are hiding behind their invisibility, and who pretend to be murdered children or other sympathetic dead humans/spirits.  It's all part of the wicked deception Paul talks about in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12:

"The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.  Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
