Do not turn to spirit-mediums or sorcerers; don’t seek them out, to be defiled by them; I am Adonai your God
Tarot card readings. Psychics. Ouija boards is called necromancy which means to communicate with the dead and it is prohibited in the Kingdom. The list of spiritual antics including horoscopes all share a common objective: encouraging people to place hope and find peace in spirits, and other sources other than God.
Most people engage into these spiritual antics for entertainment while many believe these actions are harmless. The Scriptures clearly states these things are prohibited and can put us in grave spiritual danger. Many Christians don’t realize that the Bible explicitly prohibits Believers from engaging in necromancy. We are prohibited from practicing divination or seek omens (Leviticus 19:26), not to turn to mediums or seek out spirits (Leviticus 19:31), and not to consult with the dead.
I have asked myself this question time and time again.
I came across a few scriptures the most striking one being 1Thessolonians 5 : 22 ” Abstain from all appearance of evil” it really rattled me.
After a little research here is what I discovered about Halloween.
Halloween has its origins from an occult. During this time it was believed that spirits of the dead came back to earth where humans were. The spirits were associated with causing havoc while the Celts and druids who celebrated what is now known as Halloween appreciated the spirits of the dead because they somehow helped them with their visions and prophecies.
And so the Druids made huge sacrifices to Celtic gods and wore costumes which we have now adapted as Halloween costumes. Whew ! shocker right?
Well now you know you can read more about the origins of Halloween on the web and remember our blueprint for living which Jesus Christ gave us has told us to ” abstain from all appearance of evil” 1 Thess 5:22
Do let me know what you think about it in the comments section.
I used to want to be the go person for everyone, I wanted to help as much as I could. I didnt realize that gradually, I had begun to let go of myself.
While taking on people’s loads, worries and talking with someone about what they were going through at odd hours of the night, I told people what I thought was best for them,I had begun to create unhealthy relationships.
Dont get me wrong, helping other people is not bad but my problem was I could not say no.
I didn’t know how to tell people what I needed and so I waited for them to figure out what I needed ( most times they dont get it right).
These are all signs of an unhealthy relationship but I had no one to tell me. I will share in my next post how I overcame these unhealthy relationships and how I created healthy boundaries.
Do follow and like my blog posts , would mean so much to me . Thank you for reading through 🥰❤.
Thank you for the feedback on my previous posts you have no idea how much they mean to me, thank you!
There is something Interesting I found in Genesis that I would like to share with you all.
From Genesis 10 which is after the earth had been flooded by God , you know the legendary ark Noah built! I wonder how it must have felt knowing that only your family would survive and create a new world order.
What would have been your reaction if you were Noah? For me I would get every seed of my favorite fruits to plant at wherever we stop😂.
But Noah is not the focus for today, the focus is on his sons the generations after him.
The bible calls them the sons of Shem they made up nations of the earth after the flood ( Genesis 10:31-32)
In Genesis 11 , the sons of Shem created bricks and mortars but that was not what interested me,what got me stunned was their audacity in verse 4.
In verse 4 of Genesis 11 , the people being of one language decided to create a tower that would reach heaven to meet God. After reading that, I was like what?! Did this people not know about Adam and Eve? Didnt they know that if they creator wanted them to reach heaven he would have created the bridge himself?
In verse 5 when God came down I was like dang! They are gonna have it from God now ! I waited to see how God would punish them for their plans or something .
But I was shocked by his response he simply said ,”… and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do…” ( Genesis 11:6 paraphrased) and yes this is God speaking.
Can you see the power of imagination??? Every creative process starts from the mind , your mind is the workroom of your creating process.
God came down because their imaginations that he saw could not be restrained, they could not be stopped because they had imagined it already God had to come down!!! Let that sink in , God came down not for Sodom or Gomorah or for the sins of the city Noah lived in , no, Hod came down because some men imagined something that they believed they could achieve.
Your imagination is powerful use it wisely be careful what you create with your mind, you can create fears with your imagination, use your imagination wisely.
That’s all for now guys! Do well to leave a comment behind and I will respond to every one of them, thank you for reading through 🥰❤❤.
