Good Twenty Second day of the Eighth month of the Year of our Lord Two Thousand and Seventeen!
Yeah, I know that was a bit much HOWEVER, that is how it is sometimes. We have to go over the top to make a point. On Day Twenty-One, whilst brainstorming how I would tie the day into Part II of Your Dreams versus God’s Plans, I decided to take a short break and watch one of the YouTube vloggers I follow. The topic in general was around making the time to do what you want to accomplish. I immediately clicked to view since I am definitely on that struggle bus. I began to listen and take mental notes on what’s being said, when the speaker mentioned something about their zodiac sign and how it correlates to their preference in how they live their life or something to that nature. Just as quickly as I had clicked to view this video, I quickly paused. I immediately had a questioning attitude. Why, you might ask? Well I am glad you asked.
The speaker is a professing Believer in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and what struck me is that they openly professed acceptance and consideration of the zodiac/astrology in their life choices and /or preferences. I immediately made a status comment on my social media, which said…
Hey… How you? Can I ask you something? You’re a Believer right? Ok… So explain to me your relationship with the zodiac?
Unfortunately, I didn’t get a swarm of answers, however I did get one that spoke to the exact point I wanted to make – WITCHCRAFT. If we are ALL referencing and living from the same BIBLE, there are many scriptures that speak against us relying on and/or consulting those who practice such things.
Astrology – The observation of sun, moon, planets, and stars for the purpose of determining someone character traits, personality, and the course of events for the individual’s life. (Biblegateway.com)
Here some scriptures for your Berean pleasure:
Isaiah 4713; 2 Kings 17:16; Jeremiah 10:2; Amos 5:25-27.
Divination – Attempts to discover the unknown or the future by supernatural means, involving communication with the spirit world. (Biblegateway.com)
Leviticus 19:26 reads, “Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment [using omens or witchcraft], nor observe times [predict events by horoscope or signs and lucky days]” (KJV; [Amplified emphasis]).
Clearly as Believers when we practice such things, we invite an element into our life. When doing such things you give the enemy foothold in your life because put YOU put yourself in his sights and territory. We cannot say that we trust in the Lord with all of our heart & soul, claim that He will direct our path AND at the same time ascribe to practices that He said is directly linked to witchcraft!
Until Next Time… Please consider these words, repent and renounce those practices TODAY!
