Ever wondered where psychics/mediums get their information from? (This also applies to tarot card readers, astrologers and anything of that nature.)
I’ll tell you. They get their information from things called ‘familiar spirits’. They have that name because they are ‘familiar’ with the person who is being enquired about. They have usually been with the person their whole lives so know everything about them. These spirits are not dumb. They listen in on conversations, see our reactions to things (for example: if someone has betrayed us and we go and post it all over facebook, or vent to a friend) and know what we like and don’t like, our mannerisms etc. That’s why they are called familiar, because they are familiar to that person.
These spirits have will, intellect and emotion and are very capable of mimicking and impersonating a person, especially if they have died.
That’s why psychics can tell a person exactly what they want to hear. But these spirits/entities are not to be trusted. They are not here to help anyone, in fact their job is the opposite. They are in fact fallen angels (demons/devils) and are under the instruction of Satan.
I know, I know, here I go again about that mythical being, but please hear me out. The jobs of these fallen angels/demons/devils is to prevent people from turning to God, and if they can get you to believe that your best friend is communicating with you from the dead, and is giving you advice about that job or new boyfriend, then why would you need God?! They are there to deceive you and they are succeeding.
Don’t let them fool you, they do not have your best interests at heart. They are not your dead friend, relative or pet, they are demonic beings sent to rob, kill and destroy you.
Here’s what the bible says about them.
“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
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth 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: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” Deuteronomy 18:10-13
“A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their bloodshall be upon them.” Leviticus 20:27 (There are more verses, but I think you get the gist.)
This is what their job is.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:” John 10:10
They are in an army with rank and order.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
You also open yourself up to spiritual attack if you entertain these entities. For example, do you always have trouble with boyfriends cheating on you, do you always find it hard to get a job and keep one, do have problems with some sort of addiction, are you always broke, do you always seem to have “bad luck”? It could be because you are in spiritual bondage, you just don’t know it and you don’t know why all these bad things are happening to you.
Also, these demonic beings that people think of as ghosts cause weird things to happen to people. Ever been lying in bed when you’ve felt some sort of pressure on you, maybe pushing you down; ever woken up with a start, frightened for no apparent reason; ever had a sense of something being there but you couldn’t see anything?
Then it was probably something demonic causing it to happen. I can’t say why these things happen to individuals (it would depend on their circumstances, any spiritual bondage they may be in, it could be because they are messing with things they don’t really understand, for example ouija boards or seances), but this I do know, they are meant to help the person to believe in the supernatural so they don’t think of God. All things done by Satan are to get people to not believe in God, therefore miss out on salvation.
You see, Satan hates God so much that he’s attacking the one thing that God loves most, His creation, us. Satan will do anything to take you away from God because he hates God and he hates you.
If you have gone to a psychic, had your cards read, had an aura reading, tried to contact the dead via a medium or ouija board, or prayed to the dead (ie Mary) you need to confess and repent. This is an abomination to God because you are actually contacting devils/demons.
