God created us therefore He knows what is good for us. So in many areas, God plainly tells us what we should and should not do. God does this not because He wants to spoil our fun but because He loves us.
Spiritual Practices Forbidden By God
SPIRITUAL PRACTICES FORBIDDEN BY GOD
These fall into one of three categories:
DIVINATION: Seeking supernatural knowledge or guidance apart from what God has provided. Practices include astrology, tarot cards, horoscopes, interpreting omens etc.
MAGIC: The attempt to exercise control over people, environment and circumstance through supernatural means. Practices include sorcery (black magic), witchcraft ('white' or 'black'), casting spells, etc.
SPIRITISM: The attempt to gain secret knowledge or power through communication with the dead or the spirit world. Practices include consulting a medium, consulting the dead, Ouija boards, etc.
God loves you and as your Heavenly Father He only wants what is best for you. As a result of God's concern for you, God strictly forbids involvement in divination, magic, and spiritism. Involvement in these practices will damage you in one or more of the following areas:
1. Your physical well-being
2. Your emotional well-being
3. Your spiritual well-being
Involvement in these practices is rebellion against God because He clearly warns you not to practise them. If you are involved in divination, magic and / or spiritism, demonic spirits will gain control over you although you may think you have ''special powers'.
Practising divination, magic and spiritism is sin and separates you from God. If you never come to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, God is just and hell will be your destination. If you have been involved in these things … repent … turn away from your sin and receive forgiveness and eternal life, through believing that Jesus died for your sin on the cross and rose from the dead. Give Jesus the complete control of your life. You only stand to gain power, grace, true freedom, forgiveness, mercy, peace, joy and eternal life.
