Divination has permeated societies and cultures around the globe. It has filled our schools, homes, businesses, churches, commercials, television shows, media, movies, books, literature, video games, and the internet. Divination has disguised itself in what seems to be the most innocent to what is obviously blatant. It has filtered itself through words of manipulation and deceit as well as in vain repetition.
Divination is fathered by none other than Lucifer, the devil himself, called Satan, the serpent of old, and the adversary to your soul. In 1 Peter 5:8 (KJV), it states, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour,” and Jesus Christ Himself called Satan the Father of Lies as we can see in John 8:44 (GW) which states, “You come from your father, the devil, and you desire to do what your father wants you to do. The devil was a murderer from the beginning. He has never been truthful. He doesn’t know what the truth is. Whenever he tells a lie, he’s doing what comes naturally to him. He’s a liar and the father of lies.”
Satan will never show you sin in its actual form because Satan knows if you knew what sin looked like, there is no way you would go near it. He will dress the sin to look fun, innocent, tantalizing, and/or seductive which will leave you wanting more if you are not paying attention and are unable to discern what is good and what is evil.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength,” (Deuteronomy 6:5). THE FACT IS SATAN WILL LIE TO YOU. If you are involved in any form of divination and call yourself a Christian, understand one thing: divination removes God from the throne of your life; And if God is not sitting on the throne of your life, there is only one other sitting on that throne. You cannot serve God and Satan at the same time. They do not share the same throne nor do they share the same kingdom. Understand divination, no matter what form you are entertaining, MUST be repented of and you must turn away from all divination, not just portions of it.
You are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and the basic law of the temple is holiness. Do not defile your temple by entertaining that which is displeasing to God.
