Choosing a Life of Torment and Affliction

torment, affliction

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

Despite the VERY CLEAR warnings in God’s Word, a great many are deceived into consulting with familiar (demon/evil) spirits.

Because demons/evil or familiar spirits are a judgment from God, they bring torment and affliction to all those they visit. But because the wicked are not only deceived, but rebellious, they ignore the very clear warnings in the Bible and open up lines of communication with their doom.

IN EFFECT, any who consult with a familiar spirit CHOOSE a life filled with torment and affliction.

HOWEVER, these deluded souls convince themselves it would be much worse without the source of that torment: their familiar spirit.

And modern media is FULL of how-to articles on various aspects of the care and feeding of familiar spirits.

As befits the deceived, a great number of stories are told about the familiar spirit–which is the source of ALL power for the necromancer, witch, charmer, fortuneteller, wizard, astrologer and sorcerer..  These stories not only deceive the one employing the familiar spirit, they also are intended to deceive the public at large as well–particularly about where the spirit user obtains his power.

In a modern Wiccan’s perspective, a familiar is a witch’s companion in both the spiritual and physical realms, often chosen intuitively by the witch, and is commonly an animal spirit who has made itself known as a magickal partner to the witch.

One of the most deceptive of the stories is that the familiar spirit will PROTECT the one consulting with it.

BUT, if this is true, then why do so many using familiar spirits complain of the bad treatment they receive from neighbors, the authorities and others they come in contact with?

Though the claim of a familiar spirit PROTECTING the one consulting it is a familiar one, the complaints of the world abusing the “protected” one are also common.

This contradiction is illustrated in the Bible’s account of Saul, the first king of Israel who formerly had decreed death to those with familiar spirits, and his forbidden meeting with the witch of Endor, a woman known for having a familiar spirit.

“And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets.  Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee.

And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die?
–1SAMUEL 28:6-9

Even though the woman had a familiar spirit, she was frightened about dying for using the familiar spirit.

So what kind of protector is the familiar spirit then?

Though those who consult with familiar spirits are quick to point the finger at ANYONE or ANY THING other than their familiar for their many misfortunes, the truth is that the lives of those with familiar spirits are a mess–though the one with the familiar spirit will often DENY this state of affairs as their familiar spirit is the ONLY thing which they feel is “right” about their lives.

Again, if an impartial referee was to be hired for everyone who claimed a familiar spirit, the good and bad happenings would not be as those which are claimed by the ones who use such spirits.

Again, those who consult with familiar spirits not only CHOOSE a life of torment and affliction.

They desperately cling to such torment.

DOES the reader know of anyone who has a familiar spirit?

DOES the reader know of anyone who might employ a familiar spirit?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
