What does the Bible say about calling on psychics?
We are warned by Yahweh not to call on familiar spirits. Seeking to commune with any other spirit being besides Yahweh is strictly forbidden. Yahweh has commanded that all worship must go to Him. He is zealous for His people and will not allow them to commit idolatry in such wicked ways.
"And the soul that turns to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards, to play the harlot after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people" (Leviticus 20:6)
Dr. E.W. Bullinger in his Companion Bible says that these familiar spirits are evil spirits impersonating human beings. Ghosts are nothing more than evil spirits trying to confuse mankind. Yahweh says that when a person dies that their spirit returns to Him and all their thoughts perish in the grave. Our spirit is our life source that Yahweh has given to us.
Many people today consult psychics, fortunetellers, astrology and other such spiritualism hoping that they can obtain the answers to life, but they do not realize that they are actually calling on Satan's spirit realm. Many who play with ouija boards are ignorant of the fact that they are involving themselves in the spirits of darkness.
Yahweh's people are to be pure from all evil worship. We should not have any part of Satan or his evils. By going to such sources for guidance we are in effect denying Yahweh. Satan rebelled against Yahweh's rule and authority and by our consulting with the evil spirit realm we are turning from Yahweh.
Satan has many tactics to deceive those that would be deceived. The Bible says that Satan can disquise himself into what looks good and right. "...For even Satan fashions himself into an angel of light. It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works" (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).
Satan can deceive us if we allow it. That's why Yahweh tells us through his Apostle Paul that we are to "prove all things." The Bible says that we are to stay away from any type of sorcery or demonic activity. Obey Yahweh and listen to his voice, that you may live peaceably in His truth.
