More on the Occult


1. Meaning of the word “OCCULT”

This comes from a Latin word which means “concealed” or “covered over” The power behind occult practices is Satan-the devil-the chief prince of the kingdom of darkness, who is evil. According to Christ in John 8:44 and John 10:10, the devil is a murderer, a liar and the father of lies. Christ said the devil came to steal, kill and destroy.

2. Purpose of the “OCCULT”

The devil uses the occult to ensnare people into bondage to the evil forces of darkness. The occult systems are deceptive and can subtly bring people into demonic captivity.

3. Spiritual Adultery

The Word of God commands people to worship the only true God Yahweh, the Creator of the Universe. Turning away to other gods, which are from the kingdom of darkness – pagan gods – is spiritual adultery and is despicable to the true God Yahweh, who is a jealous God;

see Exodus 20:3-6.
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

4. Curse of God for Occult Involvement

Occult involvement is an abomination unto the true God Yahweh, as explained above.
There are many scriptures which indicate the curse of God will come upon those who commits this sin of abomination. Some relevant scriptures:-

(a) Leviticus 20:6-8 – NIV
“I will set My Face (of God) against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute (spiritual harlotry) himself by following them, and I will cut him off (curse of God) from his people. Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the LORD (Yahweh) your God. Keep My decrees and follow them, I am the LORD (Yahweh), Who makes you holy.”

(b) Deuteronomy 28:15-68 – NIV
“However, if you do not obey the LORD (Yahweh) your God and do not carefully follow all His commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses (of God) will come upon you and overtake you:
You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country, etc, etc, etc.... The LORD (Yahweh) will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, ...... The LORD (Yahweh) will plague you with diseases etc.
The LORD (Yahweh) will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, etc.
The LORD (Yahweh) will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. etc,etc, etc.”

(c) Exodus 20:3-6 – NIV
already stated above. Some verses are: “You shall have no other gods before Me. .... for I, the LORD (Yahweh) your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation....”

(d)Isaiah 47:12-15 – NIV
“Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries, ....Let your astrologers (a form of divination, as stated in Deuteronomy 18:9-13) come forward,those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. .... There is not one that can save you.”

(e) Revelation 21:7-8 – NIV
Some verses are:-
“those who practice magic arts (sorceries), the idolaters (worshiping idols) and all liars – their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

(f) Revelation 9:20-21 - NIV
“The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent .... they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood – idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts (sorceries).... .”

5. Freemasonry

The “god” of freemasonry is the devil, but this is not revealed until the member of the Masonic Lodges has graduated to the high levels. Anybody who wants more information about this should read the many books written by born-again committed Christians who were formerly freemasons.

6. Occult Involvement Opens The Door To Demons

People involved in the occult and freemasonry open the door to their lives to demons.

Some Reference books:
(a) “They shall expel demons”, by Dr. Derek Prince (Big Version of 250 pages)
(b) “Curses and Blessings”, by Dr. Derek Prince (Big Version of 250 pages)
(c) Others books/tapes/CD's, by Dr. Derek Prince, including 3 CD's on Release from curses
(d) “Angels of Light?”, by Hobart E. Freeman
(e) Various books on Freemasonry by born-again committed Christians.

7. Deliverance From Demons Caused By Occult Involvement

This requires an experienced and spiritually mature, anointed born-again, committed and consecrated Christian minister, to minister carefully and comprehensively.

Some of the steps involved:

(a) Preach the gospel of salvation

(b) The person needs to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as his/her Lord God and Saviour, invite Christ into his/her heart as Lord, Saviour and King of his/her heart, with whole-hearted repentance from all sins, including unforgiveness.

(c) Each occult sin needs to be confessed, repented of, and renounced.

(d) Then the experienced and spiritually mature, consecrated (with a pure heart) born- again committed Christian Minister (preferably with one or more similar Ministers) command the demons in the mighty, matchless Name of the Lord Jesus Christ to be bound, rebuked and to come out and to go to the place appointed by the Lord Jesus Christ.

(e) Refer to “They shall expel demons” and other books, tapes, CD's by Dr Derek Prince for comprehensive understanding and other information, relevant to this ministry.

(f) After deliverance, the person needs to walk in obedience to the Will of God, along the godly path of sanctification – path of righteousness, holiness, continual daily repentance. This is the path of glorifying Christ and pleasing God in everything, on a daily basis. This is important, otherwise the demons will come back through any open door of sin, and bring back seven more powerful demons, as the Lord Jesus Christ stated in:
Luke 11:24-26

“When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”
