“DO YOU READ HOROSCOPES?” Wednesday Minute

“Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.”  Leviticus 19:31 NIV

“At that time I will put you on trial. I am eager to witness against all sorcerers and adulterers and liars.”   Malachi 3:5a NIV

 

Stop anyone on the street and ask them ‘what’s your sign?’   You will likely hear; Pisces, Taurus, Libra or one of the other astrological signs.   Seldom, you may hear; “I don’t believe in astrology.”   I hope that would be your answer. That should be the only correct answer.   Even admitting to a sign or reading a horoscope and you are already on a slippery slope.

 

Yet many, including some claiming to be Christians, will read horoscopes in hopes of something good.  Some believe that one ‘sign’ is better equipped, cannot be trusted, will be wealthy or some other nonsense.   They believe horoscopes forecast good luck, bad luck, false warnings or good fortune.  But all are nothing but Satan’s lies.

 

Some will tell you they believe in horoscopes and fortune telling, while others claim it is all in fun and profess it to be innocent.   There is nothing innocent about Satan.   Things that might seem innocent and that GOD has warned us of are things we should totally avoid.   Satan creates footholds in little things.

 

Deuteronomy 4:19 warns us; “And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars-all the heavenly array-do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.”

 

Then in Micah 5:12 GOD tells us; “I will put an end to all witchcraft, and there will be no more fortune-tellers.”

 

We are to worship GOD only and trust in GOD only.   There is no security or entertainment in partaking of anything that is of Satan.

 

Today’s prayer:  “Thank YOU, LORD, for protecting me from the evils of Satan in this world.   Help me to warn others of these false hopes and Satan’s lies.  Amen.”
