DESTROYING THE ACTIVITIES OF OCCULT POWERS
Text: (Lev. 19:31) ďRegard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your GodĒ.
Occult Powers: These are the demonic spirits that lives in, exercise dominion over and operate from the Air (Rev.12:12).Beliah is the head of all occult activities, he lives in 1st heaven-lies, this principality is responsible for all occult works, work through human rulers of the darkness of this planet earth (Eph. 6:12); to manipulate their fellow men (their finances, health, general fortunes, etc.).
Man involvement in occult result or originates as result of manís fall and the lost of God glory in man and man settlement for Satanís alternative. Thus began manís fatal misguided adventure into the depths of Satan (Rev. 2:24); from the early days of God.
In fulfillment of prophecy of the latter day, there is a remarkable upsurge in the practice of occultism and magical arts as we approach the close of the age. The devil blind fold his captives with the promise of power, protection, prosperity and preservation of prosperity.
People involved in occultism falls into various categories. There are lawful captives who are initiated into occult practices in their search for satanís deceptive offers. Secondly, there are the ignorant captives who are initiated into the occult world through unsolicited contact with satanic agents. Example of these includes those who were dedicated to idols by their parents and those who willingly ate food items taken from their peers or things sacrifice to idols.
And also those who in their desperate search for children or wealth or earthly positions ; got initiated by witchcrafts and false prophets that doesnít have anything to offer. (Eph. 6:12; II Cor 3:5; Rev. 2:21-23).
God is against practice of occult in these last days: the Bible is against various shadows of occult involvements. God warned the children of Israel(and us ) in very strong terms against such practice as necromancy (communication with the dead), use of divinations, magic books, fetishes and amulets and observing of times (reading of horoscopes, palmistry and star-gazing. They were also warned to flee away from enchantments (incantations), and consulting with familiar spirits (false prophets, soothsayers, etc.).
Godís full wrath is against as many who, like Manasseh that brought occultic practice into His place of true worship and those who collaborated with others to form satanic confraternities or associations. May come to Godís house these days, under pretence, only to lure away innocent (sincere) in Christ Children of God and to manipulate church authorities. Divine judgment await such people. If they refuse to repent from working/worshiping Satan directly or indirectly(Deut. 18:9-12; Lev. 19:26-28; II Chronicle 23:1-9; I Sam 28:3-20; Isa 47:9,12; Acts13:6-8, 16:16;Acts19:18,19).
MODE OF OCCULTIC OPERATIONS:
Occultic powers generally oppress their victims, with intention to harass such victims in doing whatever the occultic powers desires: like terrorizing, forcing, harassing. And also forcing innocent people to join them in order . To allow them operate certain businesses or to receive contracts, promotions in their jobs, or to contest/ win political posts. Occult powers operates chiefly by working on the mind of their victims which they manipulates by satanic means of projections into their mind -states and theirby affecting victim senses.
In some cases too, makes their victims to be practicing or undergoing levitation soul-travels, etc.
