Indeed, the Bible makes no distinction whatsoever between white and black magic and tells us to beware of all forms of magic and witchcraft. Do not consult witches, wizards, sorcerers, fortune tellers, mediums, diviners and necromancers! Have nothing to do with palmistry, tea leaf reading, Tarot card reading, crystal reading, Ouija boards, astrology, horoscopes or white or black magic in any form! "Why?" you may ask. Because ALL of these are condemned by the Bible and are detestable to the Lord! They are not good, but evil, according to the Creator of this universe. In fact, you will become spiritually defiled just by seeking out such!
"Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God" (Lev.19:31).
"I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people" (Lev. 20:6).
"Let no one be found among you who... practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD ..." (Deut. 18:10-12).
"When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn" (Isa. 8:19-20).God is jealous; we are to seek him and only him. He is also a testing God, and when trials and painful afflictions come to us Christians (as they do to everyone), our faith is being tested and refined. We are to go to God and his Word for help, guidance and strength, not to our enemy the devil and the forces of darkness.
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 Jn. 4:1)Again, the Bible makes no distinction between white and black magic and condemns the practice of all magic arts, even if people are apparently helped in the natural (but destroyed spiritually).
"And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness." (2 Cor. 11:14-15)The Apostle Paul cast a fortune telling demon out of a girl by saying, "In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her" (Acts 16:16-18). When the demon departed, her ability to foretell the future was also gone! To reiterate, to consult a medium for guidance is to show yourself unfaithful to God:
"Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance" (1 Chron. 10:13).It is also to be noted that the fortune telling girl above followed Paul around proclaiming that Jesus was 'a way' to God (Greek). First, Jesus is not merely a way to God, but the only way to God (Jn. 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Jn. 5:12).
Second, just because someone talks about Jesus while engaging in wickedness (such as practicing magic), does not make him or his practices any less wicked or abominable in the sight of God. There is no such thing as a Christian involved in the occult. Recently, a young man from Haiti who practiced voodoo spoke of his powers and how these spirits told him about Jesus. He insisted his powers were for good. But how could it be good if it will drag souls to lake of fire, including his own?
The Lord Jesus declared, "But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death." (Rev. 21:8)
From the depths of your heart, cry out to JESUS to save, deliver and wash you from all your sins. BURN all your Voodoo and Witchcraft books, materials, and paraphernalia, etc.
"A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas". (Acts 19:19)Change based on the Bible, especially the New Testament. Put all (100%) of your submissive faith and trust in Jesus for salvation. Turn away from all your sins, including all forms of witchcraft and Spiritism. Your eternal destiny depends on it.
