Is advising fortune tellers, horoscopes and the media harmless fun?
No it is not. Such activities amount to demon worship.
Yahweh God strictly forbids people to be clairvoyants and media and forbids people to consult them, as the following scriptures show:
"There should be no one with you who lets his son or daughter go through the fire, who uses divination, who practices magic, or a magician or a magician or a charmer or a counselor with a familiar spirit [a medium]or a magician or a necromancer. For whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. "(Deuteronomy 18: 10-12, WEB)
"Do not contact those who are media, nor the wizards. Do not seek them out to be soiled by them. I am Yahweh, your God." (Leviticus 19:31)
Under the Mosaic Covenant, media, soothsayer and soothsayer should be killed (Leviticus 20:27). According to the new covenant for Christians, no such person will enter the kingdom of God, so they are destined for the eternal death penalty (Galatians 5: 19-21; Revelation 21: 8).
Why does Yahweh prohibit divination and similar activities? Because psychic powers do not come from God, but from the demons. After the apostle Paul cast out a demon from a fortune teller, she could no longer give readings:
"It happened when we went to prayer that we met a certain girl with a spirit of fortune telling that brought her masters a lot of profit through divination. After Paul and us she cried: 'These men are servants of Most High God who us proclaimed a way of salvation! ”She did this for many days, but Paul, who was very angry, turned and said to the Spirit: I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of it! It came out at this hour But when their masters saw that the hope of winning was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them to the market place before the rulers. "(Acts 16: 16-19)
Many are unaware that supernatural powers such as predicting future events and healing energy are not given by God and are not divine. But from this passage in Acts 16 and others in the Bible it is evident that the source of such supernatural faculties is Satan, because "Satan masquerades as an angel of light. It is not a big deal if his servants also act as servants of justice camouflage, the end of which will be according to their works. "(2 Corinthians 11: 14-15) Therefore, Yahweh warns us to stay away from exercising these powers. In addition, we do not need such powers, because anyone who trusts in Jesus can personally connect with God without needing a middleman other than Jesus, the Son of God. Jesus is the only mediator we need.
Jesus explicitly said: "Not everyone who says to me: Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does the will of my Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 7:21) So if we want to reflect the goodness of God, we have to do God's will to the best of our ability. The Lord said, "You shall be holy; for I, the Lord your God, am holy." (Leviticus 19: 2) So if we want to serve him and reflect his goodness, we must be holy, and the way to be holy is to do what he says and meet his standards, not ours own standards.
