They go by many different names... prognosticator, sorcerers, witches, psychics, wizards, alchemist, augurer, charmer, clairvoyant, conjurer, diviner, enchanter, fortune teller, magician, medium, necromancer, occultist, seer, shaman, soothsayer, sorceress, thaumaturge, warlock and more

So why do you seek other people for your future? Why do you not open the Holy Bible and seek the Lord Himself?

For the whole fifteen years that I worked as a professional psychic, I thought that every supernatural manifestation that I experienced was from the Holy Spirit. Except I didn't call it the Holy Spirit. I just called it "Spirit," among other things. And I had numerous Christian clients who claimed that the Holy Spirit was working through me. I started investigating Christianity and someone pointed me to 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10Bible quote(verse 9) [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

(verse 10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.2 Thessalonians 2 verses 9-10
, I was floored. I had always thought that the miracles were proof that God was at work. But there was always a price for those "miracles." Every time. . . I was delivered. I was full-blown possessed, and Jesus saved me. I believe it was the prayers of others that made the difference for me. I was the "impossible one." Even the people who prayed for me thought I would never get saved, but they kept praying anyway. . . Well, it took a really long time for me. I was in the occult for 26 years, and after I got saved, I think it took around 6 months or so for me to get totally free of Jezebel. Don't give up praying. If God could save me, He can save anyone. -Pennie DeWitt, Formerly known as 'Avalon,' a well-known psychic delivered from the occult and a jezebel spirit-

****If you have ever consulted a psychic OR a false prophet (religious sorcerer) then you need to REPENT!****

The practice of fortune telling is forbidden by God. It's in the Bible, Deuteronomy 18:9-13 (TLB)Bible quote(verse 9) When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

(verse 10) 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,

(verse 11) Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

(verse 12) 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.

(verse 13) Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.Deuteronomy 18 (KJV) verses 9-13

When you arrive in the Promised Land you must be very careful lest you be corrupted by the horrible customs of the nations now living there. For example, an Israeli who presents his child to be burned to death as a sacrifice to heathen gods, must be killed. No one may practice black magic, or call on the evil spirits for aid, or be a fortune teller, or be a serpent charmer, medium, or wizard, or call forth the spirits of the dead. Anyone doing these things is an object of horror and disgust to the Lord, and it is because the nations do these things that the Lord your God will displace them. You must walk blamelessly before the Lord your God.

The future is known only by God. It's in the Bible, Isaiah 8:19 (TLB)Bible quoteAnd when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?Isaiah 8 (KJV) verse 19,

So why are you trying to find out the future by consulting witches and mediums? Don't listen to their whisperings and mutterings. Can the living find out the future from the dead? Why not ask your God?

What is the Difference Between a PROPHET and a PSYCHIC?

Read Modern Prophets & Psychics: Is There a Difference?


Read about true prophets according to the Bible.

Leviticus 19:31

The difference between a prophet (or prophetically gifted person) and a psychic is about where the information is coming from. Where the information comes from makes all the difference in the world. If you intentionally tap into the spiritual realm with no intention to hear from God, your source is wrong.

God was clear on His feelings about this:

A true prophet receives his information from God alone. The Bible says that in the last days there will be many people claiming to be prophets but most of them are false prophets leading people away from God. A true prophet cannot go to a prophet school and be trained for this. Any gift a prophet receives comes from God alone. It cannot be bought.

If someone gives you a prophecy in the Name of Jesus, it should be confirmation to what God has already spoken to you directly, OR God should give you confirmation of what was spoken. You need to pray about the word given to you and test the spirit in which it came from. The Word of God WARNS US to test the spirits.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because MANY FALSE PROPHETS have gone out into the world.

By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the [spirit] of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
