Without faith, people turn even to the quiet stars, studying the signs of the Zodiac, casting around like shipwrecked mariners for a rock to cling to. Isaiah observed all this nearly 3000 years ago and said “When men tell you to consult mediums and spirits, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?”(Isa 8:19) Just look to Jesus.Isaiah 8:19 and 20
Someone may say to you, “Let’s ask the mediums and those who consult the spirits of the dead.
With their whisperings and mutterings, they will tell us what to do.”
But shouldn’t people ask God for guidance?
Should the living seek guidance from the dead?
LOOK TO GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS AND TEACHINGS! People who contradict his word are completely in the dark.Deuteronomy 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. For example:…And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, Or use sorcery, Or interpret omens, Or engage in witchcraft, Or cast spells Or function as mediums or psychics, Or call forth the spirits of the dead.
Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord. …
You must be blameless before the Lord your God.
The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune –tellers, but the Lord your God forbids you to do such things.”
