About The Occult

One of Satan`s favorite weapons against us is occult involvement. The occult is Satan`s world of the spirit. The special danger is that is appeals to our spiritual hunger, the hunger of our spirit to find the Lord, and diverts us from Him into the occult underworld, a dead end.

We need to remember that all occult involvement brings spiritual confusion. It grows out of the feeling that there may be other spiritual forces out there besides God, and we can consult them or use them, or try to stay on the good side of them. When we go along with these feelings we violate the first commandment, “You shall have no other gods beside me”, and Jesus` commandment, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength.”

Remember too that the wrong things we do in innocence and ignorance hurt as much as the things we do deliberately. God`s way of healing us through confession and forgiveness works not only for our sins but for our errors and our ignorance as well. So we must confess and receive forgiveness for our occult involvement, whether they were done in sin or in error or in ignorance.

Satan has his little occult traps set up all through our world. As you read through the list below, ask the Holy Spirit to recall to your mind every involvement you have had.

Circle each one you have participated in so you can confess it and renounce it.
