In light of recent disclosures of astrology and the occult influencing our government’s decisions, we must expect the Lord’s judgments to come shortly; whenever Israel let these divinations became a part of their nation, God’s judgments followed.
From the earliest times, God has forbidden occultism (astrology, etc.) because it is spiritually defiling ( Lev. 19:31 ), and also that the result would be the rejection of the participating person’s soul by Almighty God. ( Lev. 20:6; top ) Yet these practices are openly exercised in many present-day churches.
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.” ( 1 Tim. 4:1; top )
“...You shall not learn to do after the abomination of those (pagan) nations. There shall not be found with you anyone...who uses divination (astrology, fortune-telling) or who observes times (ESP, divination), or is an enchanter (magician, clairvoyance) or a witch (sorcery) or a charmer (hypnosis) or a consulter with familiar spirits (psychic) or a necromancer (consulting with the dead). For all that do these things are an abomination to the Lord...” ( Dt. 18:9-12; top )
These sorcerers “...shall have their part in the lack which burns with fire and brimstone.” ( Rev. 21:8; top )
There are two sources we can use to seek supernatural knowledge and guidance from. One source is God, the other is Satan. If we consult the evil source, we have rejected God and His counsel. This breaks the first commandment of Scripture. The seriousness of this is revealed in King Saul’s life, an anointed leader who consulted with a spiritualist leader of his day and died in the process. ( 1 Chr. 10:13; top )
The Scripture consistently tells us to rid ourselves of the flesh life, because it is in rebellion against God and the end result is “now the works of the flesh are...adultery...witchcraft (astrology)...they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.” ( Gal. 5:19-21; top )
“...Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you from those things that shall come upon you. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame...” ( Isa. 47:13-14; top )
The Apostle Paul found Elymas, a sorcerer (a false prophet) trying to prevent Paul and his companions from presenting the gospel to some government officials. Paul’s rebuke is recorded in Acts 13:10-11 :
“...You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord?” The Holy Spirit through Paul struck Elymas the sorcerer blind. (top)
A person doesn’t read an astrology table innocently; repent to Jesus and to our Heavenly Father immediately to remove this bondage. If you need guidance and counseling, go to Jesus and Scripture. We don’t need any other source.
Adolph Hitler had his astrological table painted on the wall of his home, and consulted the table for his every move - and look what happened to him and through him.
From here on until the end of all things in this Church age, we have the choice of staying lukewarm or surrendering to God’s perfect will for us. It is the greatest “either or” decision ever faced by Christians. The wheat is now being separated from the tares.
The main enemies of Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel were the astrologers of their day.
