“9 When you are come into the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord your God does drive them out from before you.” Deuteronomy 18:9-12
The Lord has driven out the abominations of the diviner, enchanter and observer of times. He has separated us who have believed upon the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour from the charmer, consulter of familiar spirits, wizards and those who call up the dead (necromancers).
At Calvary, Jesus Christ made the Way for us to abide in the secret place of the most High; to abide without fear of the enemy. Submitted unto Jesus, Who HE is and what HE has done at Calvary’s Cross to pay the penalty of sin for the believing sinner AND break the power of sin for the Saint, we are able to resist the devil and he will flee. No matter the circumstance; the ability to resist is afforded by the Grace of God which flows continually as we look unto Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
It is when we occupy the land the Lord has given us and we are abiding in Him but begin looking at worldly precepts that the problems begin to occur. Looking unto diviners, witches and necromancers is a huge problem in the church today. Because these diviners and witches are attempting to manipulate the righteous spirit world with their incantations we do not recognize them as ‘diviners’ but instead call them mighty men and women of God which is not so. To be sure, the Roman Catholic Church is full of necromancers as they pray to Saints of old. Their prayers to Mary are nothing more than calling up the dead for she is in fact dead herself.
Beware of white witchcraft which is running rampant in the church. We do not have authority of angels nor are we able to manipulate the righteous spirit world. Attempting to divine the God’s principalities and powers is an abomination. It is witchcraft.
“5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
The Lord has set us in heavenly places to abide with Him. He has prepared a place for us in Heaven and on earth. He has a purpose and a perfect will for us to complete while on this side of glory. Do not look unto the ways of the world, look unto Jesus. Trust Him. Allow Him to be the God of Glory in your heart that you may be found a tree of righteousness when the storms begin to roar. He is perfectly able and willing to take you through the storm but we must keep our eyes on HIM.
Jesus Christ and Him crucified, be determined to know nothing else among you.
