Familiar Spirits

Isaiah 8:19 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? Should not the people seek to God for His revelation instead of seeking through the living to the dead? This makes it clear that so-called communications with the dead are not of God and should not be indulged in. - Dake A.R.B. page Continue Reading

The Honest Trifles of Darkness

From Khouse.Org "Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God." - Lev 19:31 ¶ Shakespeare's Macbeth is famous for its witches. These three crones are not out producing butterflies and gum drop forests. They are cauldron-fillers who consult with evil spirits, who use baboon's blood, nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips in their foul brews. In the end, their words deceive Continue Reading

Isaiah 8:16-22; The Importance of the Scriptures; The unspeakable privilege which the people of God enjoy in having the oracles of God consigned over to them, and being entrusted with the sacred writings; That they may sanctify the Lord of hosts, may make Him their fear and find Him their sanctuary, bind up the testimony; Note, It is a great instance of God’s care of His Church and love to it that He has lodged in it the invaluable treasure of Divine revelation; Note, Dread the use off spells and charms, and consulting those that by hidden arts pretend to tell fortunes, cure diseases, or discover things lost; for this is a heinous crime, and, in effect, denies the God that is above; He reads the doom of those that seek to familiar spirits and regard not God’s law and testimony; there shall not only be no light to them, no comfort or prosperity, but they may expect all horror and misery; Those that shut their eyes against the light of God’s word will justly be abandoned to darkness, and left to wander endlessly, and the sparks of their own kindling will do them no kindnes. B.C. 740

The Importance of the Scriptures. B. C. 740. Isaiah 8:16-22 16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.   17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.   18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.   19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek Continue Reading

Deuteronomy 18:9-14; Idolatrous Customs of the Canaanites; Was it possible that a people so blessed with divine institutions should ever admit the brutish and barbarous inventions of men and devils?; One would wonder that such arts and works of darkness, so senseless and absurd, so impious and profane, could be found in a country where divine revelation shone so clearly; yet we find remains of them even where Christ’s holy religion is known and professed; such are the powers and policies of the ‘rulers of the darkness of this world;’ But let those give heed to fortune-tellers, or go to wizards for the discovery of things secret, that use spells for the cure of diseases, are in any league or acquaintance with familiar spirits, or form a confederacy with those that are–let them know that they can have no fellowship with God while thus they have fellowship with devils; Those were fools indeed who would go to consult the father of lies when they had such a ready way of consulting the God of Truth. B.C. 1451

Idolatrous Customs of the Canaanites. B. C. 1451. Deuteronomy 18:9-14 9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.   10 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,   11 Or a charmer, or a Continue Reading
