Deuteronomy 18 writes about what the NASB refers to as “Spiritism Forbidden.”

Spiritism Forbidden

“When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations.10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you. 13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. 14 For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do so.

What this refers to is those who consort with the demonic. What matters is the source of the information. Which spirit, the Holy Spirit or a demonic spirit, are you consulting.

Going to God in the Holy Spirit is what God desires. He shares with us, teaches us, comforts us. He has Words of Wisdom, Words of Knowledge, Tongues and Prophecy that He give us to lead, edify, teach, uplift and equip. These are good things. Other churches assume that all supernatural is evil and therefore to be condemned. The truth is that the source matters.

As we surrender to God, as we cooperate with Him, He has gifts and an integrated life with His Will and Kingdom. The Kingdom of Heaven is available to us as we reach for it ( Matthew 3:2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”), so let’s take hold and live in all that God has for us. It will help us live a holy and sanctified life. It will help us share the Gospel good news. It will help us disciple. It will help us walk with God, living His abundant Life now and always until His return.
