You Can't Have It Both Ways

What's up with this anyway?- So much occultism being passed around and promoted on Facebook and everywhere else on the Internet: witches, fairies, paganism, New Age, astrology, totem animals, skulls and bones, other spiritual practices and superstitions you ought to have nothing to do with. Where's your spiritual discernment?

You who are promoting this (even while calling yourself "Christian") do not even have a clue about the darkness you're helping to advance! You need to get clear as to who you belong too and get rid of the superstition and darkness from your life. You can't have it both ways. And you wonder where the great dis-ease on so many levels of your life comes from? Let alone the fire you are walking into that will devour you at the end of your physical days. “"Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28. 

That’s Jesus talking. Think it can’t happen? Jesus love bombs, right? He’d never talk about hell. Guess again. Yes, same Jesus who cursed the fig tree, and took a whip and turned upside down the bankers who’d made the temple a den of thieves. Same Jesus Who cast out the demons from people who let them into their lives because of their occult involvements and practices. 

Same Jesus who surrendered Himself to a horrible death on a cross so you can walk free of the darkness of the devil and of this fallen world.

This writer used to buy into the occult agenda too. Yes, I know - usually its starts with something “innocent” - like checking your daily horoscope. Or playing with a ouija board. But here's the thing: You've opened the door to subtle darkness in your life with these ideas and practices, these subtle lies that “it’s only a little, harmless, playful thing”. Same old serpent who said to Eve, “Did God really tell you that…?” 

You cannot claim the Blood of Jesus Christ, and then go hanging out with the dark side. It doesn't work that way. Not even a little bit.

You were redeemed OUT OF darkness, freed from it. Grace has set you free from sin, self, and Satan. Not to walk back into it, but to experience a life free of those things, in an ever growing way and experience.

"Coexist" does not exist! Never did. Doesn't now. Never will.

Does that sound harsh? Probably. Because admonition is not a familiar way to speak in a generation which lives by the "feel goods" and has fallen into a spiritual trance, swallowing every bait that dances in front of it.  

What word do you really live by? The popular word of the day, or the Word of the Lord, which says, ”Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?" 2 Corinthians 6:14,15. 

Jesus didn’t purchase you with His blood - from sin, death, and the power of the devil - so that you could walk right back into the devil’s kingdom, where He took you from. 

“So if anyone cleanses himself of what is unfit, he will be a vessel for honor: sanctified, useful to the Master, and prepared for every good work.” 2 Timothy 2:21.

I realize this is a strong message, but it is a warning that needs to be sounded. None of this baggage can be carried on this road, the Crossroad.
