God's Warning About Astrology

"Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know. Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast labored from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee." Isaiah 47:11-13
The following is a rather long testimony, but if you have the heart to consider the word of God and ears to hear, I pray God will minister to you about the danger of "playing around" with horoscopes. There is no playing around with the devil; he is out to destroy you! I see a lot of horoscopes come through on Facebook, and I used to read them as a girl until I learned that they were an abomination to God. I stopped reading them, but I didn't know that an evil spirit was associated with them and had bound me up and was still there even after I stopped. After I began hearing the gospel preached, God began delivering me of sorcery from astrology, seances, and the Ouija board that I had done as a girl. I did not do any of these a lot, but a little of the devil will affect you!
So, I pray that if you have been involved in things, that you will humble yourself and let God set you free from the powers of darkness that accompany those acts.
Seances are Witchcraft (Originally written and published 9/2/2008)
Labor Day, Steve and I were both off work, so we decided to spend part of the day cleaning out our garage. When we started working at about noon, I had a slight headache, but by about 1:30 my head hurt so badly that I couldn’t even think straight; the pressure on one of my eyes was so intense it was difficult to see clearly, and I had become very nauseated.
I thought I was overcoming some stronghold from my childhood related to my mom's stuff that I was cleaning out, so I kept on working as long as I could, thinking I would press through it and overcome. But finally somewhere between 1:30 and 2:00, the pain was so intense that I felt like I was about to throw up. I went in the house, sat down and just kept binding witchcraft. I could hear Steve out in the garage binding witchcraft as well. I was extremely ill, dizzy and very weak; it came on suddenly but was very strong. I decided that I would have a bite to eat. I put something in the toaster and while I had my back turned, the toaster caught on fire and quickly the kitchen filled with smoke! Just at that moment, Steve came into the smoky kitchen; he commented that we were certainly battling some evil spirit!
I just sat down, I really couldn't do anything else, and we kept praying. After about 45 minutes I was greatly improved, just still somewhat dizzy, but I went back out into the garage to finish going through boxes. Soon I felt fine, but it had been some very intense hours. We worked until 4:30 and then went and ate dinner before going to worship.
When we got to the meeting, Doyle told about being in a great war that afternoon and overcoming a spirit of witchcraft in a woman. He said it was a spirit of witchcraft from going to sťances as a girl. He also said that many others also had the same bondage.
When I was in elementary school, around fourth grade, I went to slumber parties at a friend’s house and participated in sťances a couple of times. It seemed pretty silly because no one really knew what they were doing and it didn’t appear to do much of anything, nothing happened. I did not even consider that I was inquiring of the devil, but that’s exactly what it was. We certainly didn’t inquire of God! People say, "Oh it’s just kid’s stuff," but it was clearly no game how sick I was when we were cleaning out the garage that day. I was really miserable there for a while.
When I heard Doyle tell about overcoming that witchcraft at exactly the same time that I was feeling so ill, and I knew that I had also participated in sťances as a girl, then it was obvious to me that I had been delivered of that same witchcraft right then when he was praying. That spirit began manifesting in me as I was being delivered and it made me extremely ill. As Doyle overcame that spirit, I was set free by the power of God, and I was completely healed of all that horrible pain!
This is the same thing that happened in Matthew 8:16:
"When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:"
When the devil was cast out, then they were healed.
Jesus said in Matthew 12 that Satan cannot cast out Satan and that when devils are cast out, the kingdom of God is come unto you. In I Thessalonians 1, Paul said that the gospel came not in word only, but also in power. I’m so grateful that God has brought the gospel, the power of God to us to work in our lives and to deliver us of things that we may not even know have us bound. I did not know that a spirit of witchcraft had bound me up, and I'm very grateful that God set me free before that evil spirit that had me bound could bring further destruction to my life! If you set your heart on this gospel, it will expose the darkness in your heart, deliver you and heal you up from it's evil effects. Thank God!
Isaiah 47 tells of evil coming upon us because of seeking after all those multitude of counsels that are evil. Jesus said, Repent (change) and believe the gospel (not all those other ways)! Ask the Lord to deliver you from any evil you've been involved in so that the ill effects of them will not bring destruction into your life one day! Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus came that we might have life more abundantly. The gospel will bring blessings to your life!!
If you ever participated in any astrology, horoscopes, seances, Ouija Board, tarot cards, handwriting analysis, palm reading or any other occult practices, most likely an evil spirit entered into you when you did it. And if you stopped doing those things, that spirit did not leave you then; you must be delivered from it by the power of God.
God bless you,
