SPIRITUALISM, Sorcery, and WITCHCRAFT

1. Do you know that God commanded Israel that those who practice sorcery or witchcraft should not be permitted to live? Exodus 22:18.

2. Do you know that to seek to communicate with spirits or with the dead is to become defiled and unfit to appear before God to worship Him? Leviticus 19:31.

3. Do you know that God cuts off from among His people all who turn to mediums for help? Leviticus 20:6.

4. Do you know that capital punishment by stoning was God's sentence on any man or woman who calls up spirits? Leviticus 20:27.

5. Do you know that witchcraft, fortunetelling, crystal reading, necromancy, and palmistry are related to spiritism and are strongly condemned by God? Deuteronomy 18:10,11.

6. Do you know that it was because of their black magic and related practices that God destroyed the Canaanites? Deuteronomy 18:10-12.

7. Do you know that Samuel's most effective way of impressing upon Saul the enormity of the sin of disobedience was by likening it to witchcraft? 1 Samuel 15:23.

8. Do you know that King Saul of Israel, when he was faithful to God, cleared all the spiritistic mediums out of the land? 1 Samuel 28:3.

9. Do you know that when King Saul later consulted a medium, it was only after his sins had made communication with God impossible? 1 Samuel 28:6,7.

10. Do you know that Saul's loss of his crown and his untimely death were the direct judgment of God on him for his dealings in spiritism? 1 Chronicles 10:13.

11. Do you know that the list of wicked King Manasseh's sins includes consulting with spirit-mediums, fortune-tellers, and sorcerers! 2 Chronicles 33:6.

12. Do you know that one of the reasons God rejected Israel was because they practiced magic and communicated with evil spirits! Isaiah 2:6.

13. Do you know that it is insulting to God to consult the dead when you can inquire of Him? Isaiah 8:19.

14. Did you know that a fortune-teller may be demon possessed, like the girl in Philippi out of whom Paul cast an unclean spirit in the name of Jesus? Acts 16:16-18.

15. Do you know that true Christians, like those at Ephesus, have nothing to do with black magic and its related practices? Acts 19:19.

16. Did you know that sorcery is included in the works of the flesh listed in the Bible, and that those who practice it cannot enter the kingdom of God? Galatians 5:19- 21.

17. Do you know that those who engage in sorcery will be shut out of heaven and banished forever from God? Revelation 21:8 and 22:15.

18. Do you know that the teachings of spiritism are doctrines of demons? 1 Timothy 4:1.

19. Do you know that demons are subject to God's greater power and tremble before Him? James 2:19.

20. Do you know that the increase in following after subversive doctrines inspired by devils is one of the predicted signs of the last days and of the near approach of judgment? 1 Timothy 4:1.
