What does the BIBLE say about Psychics, Fortune tellers, Mediums
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 2:9-10,
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!****
Leviticus 20:6, 27,
Deuteronomy 18:9-13, 20-22,
2 Kings 21:6,
2 Kings 23:24, 32,
1 Chronicles 10:13-14,
2 Chronicles 33:2, 6
Isaiah 2:6, 10-18,
1 John 4:1-6,
The practice of fortune telling is forbidden by God. It's in the Bible, Deuteronomy 18:9-13 (TLB):
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),
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 and Psychics: Is There a Difference? [Website no longer available!]
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:
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, 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. Deuteronomy 18:10-11 (NIV)
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.
1This video is from Laura Maxwell. She has some very good videos but I must say that I am somewhat skeptical about her legitimacy because when I was once connected with her on Facebook and when I spoke with her in private regarding deliverance help for people who used to contact me at this website looking for deliverance help, then Laura WITHOUT A REPLY TO ME just up and blocked me! I found her behavior extremely questionable. Either she is snobbish, a pretender, or has something to hide because she was not at all "Christ-like" in private. When people feel they are too far above me to associate or speak to me then I remove them from my associations.
