Seeking Familiar Spirits
Isaiah 8:19-20 (KJB) And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
You may surmise that the practice of the occult is something relatively new and prevalent today. However, this sinful practice of dabbling with familiar spirits has been around since ancient biblical times.
The sad fact is that many choose to inquire of dark spirits rather than searching out the truths and wisdom of God. God is an eternally lasting Spirit of goodness and truth while familiar spirits are deadly doctrines derived through the divination of devils. Any spirits which result from the workings of the god of this world have no real substance and lead to darkness, danger, and death.
The spirit of darkness includes many spiritual variations, or flavors, working in this world today, including astrology, necromancy, tarot reading, cards, yoga, and even dark pharmaceutical potions and tonics with some being used in advancements in the medical world and in the agenda of witches alike.
The Spirit of God is always filled with the light and Truth of God. Seeking for knowledge from familiar spirits is to seek wisdom where there is none. Wisdom that is of God is perpetually filled with light and hope and alive forever while any other source leads to certain demise and death.
