         The Holy Bible Is The Immutable  Living Word Of The Eternal God. 
   The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible.

      Here's the reason, shocking but enlightening truth:  The Bible Is Used To Deceive

         Leviticus 26:17    

And I will set my face against you,          and ye shall be slain before your enemies:

they that hate you shall reign over you;  and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.


Ezekiel 20:26 ……

that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.


                                      A Message From Peter James 


                            Familiar Spirits And Witchcraft


Leviticus 19:30 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.


Leviticus 19:31  Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to

be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.


        People are seduced into becoming involved with Satanic Powers, and Principalities,

           for three main reasons. They are to obtain Knowledge, Power and Wealth.

           Knowledge and or Wealth are major keys to obtaining power over others.

           Seeking fame might also play a part.


            It is worth remembering that when the Eternal God gives someone knowledge, and

            a position, the reason is very clearly spelt out.


Luke 22:24  And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

        25  And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise

authority upon them are called benefactors.

           26  But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger;

           and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.


           We are given positions of authority in order to serve better and not to lord it over others.


           If you are involved in the occult ask yourself why I am I doing this?

           Am I serving others, or am I actually an unwittingly not only promoting the kingdom

           of  darkness, but also dispensing death?

           Ask the question, and be honest and answer it.

           Face up to the reality of your situation.


           Once ensnared by Satan, it is almost impossible to escape from this prison, where you are

           compelled to play by the rules or suffer and even die, unless the Eternal God intervenes.

           See: Delivered from the Powers of DarknessAbsolutely Essential reading.


           Many can stand to lose the wealth, but very few indeed want to give up

           the very real power which they have been given.

           The basic concept of controlling others is the bottom line of Satan’s plan for humanity,

therefore it is easy to understand that his servants will always want to do the very same thing.

This is an abomination to the Eternal God, who has given us a free will with the command

to choose Life rather than death. This all started in the Garden of Eden where Adam and Eve were told not

to eat of the tree of death. This is found in the first book of the bible, Genesis.

Throughout the bible there are countless reports of people seeking to control others.

In the last book of the bible, Revelation, we see the Eternal God condemning Control,

and manipulation of others.

This is what witchcraft in all its guises is all about.

Note that this witchcraft is found in the churches !


It is mentioned in the letter to the church in Ephesus.


Revelation 2:6  But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans,

which I also hate.

7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;

To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the

paradise of God.


It is again mentioned in the letter to the church in Pergamos.


Revelation 2:15  So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans,

which thing I hate.


The word Nicolaitans mean conquerer of the people, or laiety.


If witchcraft is found in the churches we can be assured that has permeated

throughout the whole of society, which it has.

It is to be found in the governments, business, sport and entertainment.


Dabbling with the powers of darkness, which are evil spirits, that are fallen angels goes under many names,

and it is strictly forbidden in the Word of God.

The fact is that the spirit world is real, whether we believe it or not, does not matter.


The dead cannot speak to us, but evil spirits who have watched the lives of every human

can, and do masquerade precisely as a deceased person. They know the most minute details

of our lives as they observe us 24 hours per day. They can appear in any physical shape

that they wish, and it is a very simple thing for them to speak and look exactly as the deceased person.


Necromancy, speaking to the dead is condemned in the bible.

The reason is simply that it is impossible to do this,. and one opens oneself up to the

deception of Evil Spirits who quickly take up the opportunity to ensnare someone,

in the hope that they will be damned just like they are. What appears at first incredible

will ultimately lead to the outright possession of the person.


Deuteronomy 18:10  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter

to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

11  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations

the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13  Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.


Every one of the above highlighted items is directly dealing with the Satan’s kingdom

of darkness, therefore they are forbidden.


For further clarification of the spirit world,

See our documents:  The Spirit in Man” and “The Spirit in Man Part 2


Regardless of the names, and the technicalities which some might raise,

dancing with the devil, is dancing with the devil.

To touch Satan’s kingdom in any way whatsoever is to get contaminated,

and will require repentance and prayer for deliverance from this evil.


It is like going into a smoke filled room, the smoke permeates your clothes, your hair,

your skin and even your internal organs, to the extent that even if you have a shower your skin can still give

off the smell of smoke, as the blood stream tries to deal with the contaminated  air which you have inhaled.

It pushes the smoke laden cells near to the skin so that in addition to the lungs they also work

to get rid of the smoke.


It is impossible to serve Satan and God at the same time.

Every single thing that Satan gives us is designed to ultimately kill us.

We have stated this repeatedly on the website.

Satan can only give what he has to give, and that is death.

It is as simple as that.


The problem is that witchcraft is not packaged like death.

In the Pre-Adamic age, Lucifer packed his preposterous plan so exquisitely that one third of the angels

followed him in rebellion against the most High God.

In the garden of Eden he deceived Eve, by the packaging of his plan to make them Gods.

See our Videos “Satan Is Real”, and “Satan’s Servants”.  


Satan’s co-workers are immaculately turned out.

Most times they want for nothing.

Consider the Mormon young men that go around peddling their gospel,

Consider the ministers of the various branches of the Catholic Church,

the Anglican Church, the Orthodox Churches etc., and their fancy clothes,

Consider the Evangelical ministers in their designer suits, the Freemasons, etc. etc.


To our eyes ,all these peddlers of death might look very good,

but so did the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,  which was  Satan and death.

It appeared to be good for food and desirable.


Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was

pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit

thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.


Of course these merchants of death can also turn up as down and outs, street traders etc. 

Where I live, in the open market in the town center, I have seen a stall which only sells

witchcraft material, however, sometimes this is so subtle you will not even realize

the real intent of what is being sold.


2 Corinthians 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

2 Corinthians 11:15  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as

the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.


Definition of Familiar Spirit


Sorcerers or necormancers, who professed to call up the dead to answer questions,

were said to have a "familiar spirit"

#De 18:11 #2Ki 21:6 2Ch 33:6 Le 19:31 20:6 Isa 8:19 29:4

Such a person was called by the Hebrews an _’ ob_, which properly means a leathern bottle;

for sorcerers were regarded as vessels containing the inspiring demon. 

This Hebrew word was equivalent to the pytho of the Greeks, and was used to denote both the person

and the spirit which possessed him

#Le 20:27 1Sa 28:8 comp. #Ac 16:16 The word "familiar" is from the Latin familiaris,

meaning a "household servant," and was intended to express the idea that sorcerers had spirits

as their servants ready to obey their commands.


The bible tells us to utterly avoid all contact with Satan, however it is disguised.

We are told this for our own good, it is not an intellectual command, none of the

commandments are, though we are misled to believe that this is the case.

Because we do not realise that these commands are for our good we needlessly suffer.

For this reason we are told:


Hosea 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected

knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast

forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.


Satan has managed to deceive us into believing that we can pick and choose with what

the Eternal God told us for our good. He tells us that we do not have to worry,

so we suffer and die.


Satan offers wealth, power and fame for those who seek it, but at the price

of your soul, and by this I mean he wants your body, and your spirit.

Therefore Satan told Christ that he would give him all the kingdoms of the world.

Liar that he is, he would never have done it anyway, but we can see clearly now that

if you are prepared to pay the price, nothing is beyond your grasp,

but there is always a cost.


Matthew 4:8  Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth

him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

9  And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10  Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship

the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.


Most want power and wealth, but the fact is that very few enjoy the wealth.

There is a reason for this.

There are two separate gifts.

The first is the receipt of the wealth and

The second is enjoying the wealth.


Ecclesiastes 5:19  Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath

given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour;

this is the gift of God.


Ecclesiastes 6:2  A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he

wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat

thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.


Most get the first blessing of wealth, but the Eternal withholds the second, the enjoyment

of that wealth from most. The reason this is with held is because of rebellion.

In effect the blessing becomes a curse.


Malachi 2:2  If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name,

saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings:

yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.


Fortunately scripture also says that the Eternal God can turn curses

that have been sent against us into blessings.


Deuteronomy 23:5  Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam;

but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God

loved thee.


If wealth is being with held from you, probably you should regard it as a blessing

from the Eternal God. Most people who get massive wealth suddenly find their

lives utterly destroyed.


Proverbs 13:11  Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by

labour shall increase.


Proverbs 23:5  Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make

themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.


Several commandments in the Old and New Testaments warn us not to get involved

in Satanic practices. We are also told that those who will not forsake their ways are

guaranteed destruction.


Leviticus 20:6  And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after

wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut

him off from among his people.


Deuteronomy 18: 10  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his

daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an

enchanter, or a witch,

11  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these

abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13  Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

14  For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and

unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.


Isaiah 8:19  And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits,

and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for

the living to the dead?


Jeremiah 27:9  Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners,

nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you,

saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:


Malachi 3:5  And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against

the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those

that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside

the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.


Revelation 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers,

and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the

lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.


Revelation 22:15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers,

and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.


There is another reason beyond our immediate self which should concern us, when we are

told to obey the Eternal God.

Our obedience affects the welfare of our families.


Deuteronomy 30:19  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set

before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and

thy seed may live:


As we constantly show there are only two ways of living one leads to life and the other

leads to death.


It is absolutely clear and a cast iron promise that our choice will affect our children,

and their children, in fact down to the fourth generation.


Numbers 14:18  The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and

transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon

the children unto the third and fourth generation.


It is a total lie that we can do what we like as long as it does not hurt any one else.

It is simply not true.

I mentioned a few groups above, there are many others, some of which are secret,

but if you join them, you will be passing on an inheritance of death to your children

and their descendants.


It is time for us to consider the big picture and to ask ourselves what am I doing to myself

and my family?

The answer is clearly given in the closing verse, which commands us to seek God,

and not Satan’s servants.


Isaiah 8:19  And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits,

and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for

the living to the dead?


                                     The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.

                                                     He is the only way of escape.

                                                                Praise the Lord.

                                                        Come soon Lord Jesus.
