We have established that there are ONLY two places that power comes from.
1) God the Father – the King of Kings, Creator, One and Only True God.
2) Satan– the defeated, created angel that rebelled, and was made an open show by Jesus (Col. 2:15)
We also know that angels have a role in the supernatural, but that they serve the design of the God, or “god”, that they follow.
So if psychics claim that God gives them the gift and that they are used of God, then the real question is, “WHICH GOD”?
A psychic is one who reveals information that they could not have to others. CLEAR SIGHT
Psychics also will call themselves mediums, fortune-tellers – Diviners.
Mediumship is an act where the practitioner attempts to receive messages from spirits of the dead and other spirits that the practitioner believes exists.
They will use different tools to tell your past, present
1. Tarot Cards, Ouija boards, Crystal balls, Tea leaves, Palm reading, Séance – religion of Spiritualism, it is generally a service to communicate with the dead.
Saul consulted the witch of Endor and a familiar spirit manifested of Samuel – Saul died for doing this – 1 Chron. 10:13. When Saul had the psychic call up the dead then a demon who looked like Samuel appeared. This was not Samuel, it was a familiar spirit. When a demon takes on the likeness of a person we know, the demon counterfeits them to gain you.
How do you know it was not my dead relative or friend? When a person dies they either go to heaven. If they are born again – they go straight into the presence of the Lord in heaven (2 Cor. 5:8). If they are not born again then they are cast right into hell which is the holding tank for the unrighteous, and the next time they will be released will be at the White Throne Judgment in Rev. 20:11-15. When a person dies they either go to heaven or hell.
Paul ran across a psychic in Acts 16:16-18. He cast the demon out of her and her power ceased. She was set free from the demon who was giving her information about people.
THIS IS THE COUNTERFEIT OF THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT (1 Cor. 12)
God the Father condemns psychics!!
Lev. 20:6, “I will also turn against those who commit spiritual prostitution by putting their trust in mediums or in those who consult the spirits of the dead. I will cut them off from the community.
Deut. 18:9-14, “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. 10 For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering. And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft, 11 or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord. It is because the other nations have done these detestable things that the Lord your God will drive them out ahead of you. 13 But you must be blameless before the Lord your God. 14 The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the Lord your God forbids you to do such things.”
IF GOD THE FATHER CONDEMNS THEM, AND IS NOT THE ONE GIVING THEM THE POWER, THEN THERE IS ONLY ONE OTHER PLACE TO GET THAT POWER – SATAN. Psychics are demonically used to counterfeit, to draw people away from Jesus. Psychics are being used by the devil to deceive people and to fulfill his passion of stealing, killing and destroying.
FINAL TRUTH: Psychics are not from God! They are satanically-empowered, not God-empowered. When you open yourself up to psychics you are opening yourself up to be influenced, motivated and possibly possessed, but easily oppressed by a demon spirit. STAY AWAY! Repent if you have gone, and never go back again to the counterfeit.
