The Realities and Lies of Darkness Revealed!

I believe Blogging should be informative, then entertaining. To talk without real meaning does no one any good,”Give a man a fish and you fill his stomach for a day but teach a man to fish and HE can fill his stomach with food every day.”
The Man below spent more time in the Occult than I did so I defer to him here.

“HOW THE OCCULT OPERATES”

The Realities and Lies of Darkness Revealed!
Having come from a background in the Occult, both from histories in Native American family ties { Penobscot IndiansIt comes from Panawahpskek, which means “the place where the rocks open out.”  Click here to read about : American Indian Spirituality….and….Sacred Rites } and an interest developed from my youth {Watching TV shows like “Bewitched” and other means of reading text such as “Man, Myth and Magic”a 1970s occult encyclopedia published in installments as a magazine} I deem myself NOT an expert so much by education as by experience doing and practicing the Occult as my own, dabbling at first that turned into fear and loathing as I fell deeper into its spell.
There is a reality to witchcraft and the Occult that cannot be stated enough times to WARN those who dapple in what they cannot comprehend with the natural mind but at the same time BLINDS them to the realities of God. The Occult knowledge one acquires is only a FRACTION of spiritual realities available but you are deceived into believing there’s more to be known through this extremely limited venue. It is not that what happens is not real but that it is manipulated to a great degree by unseen forces within and without you that you are unaware of.

No matter how Innocent your practice seems to you, no matter your personal intentions of good, no matter what you believe about what your doing, the Master of the occult is SATAN not Nature, not ancient gods of power, not superstitions gone wild in a vain imagination but plain and simple demonic influences ever growing, ever taking root in your soul. These practices are dangerous, deadly things that have no remorse, no love, no repentance before a Holy and Just God and most of all a deep seated hatred of God’s Creation!
The Reason I mentioned my heritage as an American Indian is because of the great spiritual background I have as an American Indian. The spiritual side has BOTH pro and Con in my ancestry which I am only now beginning to see. The point being that many who get involved are drawn to spiritual things pro and con because of an ancestry background that makes them prone to develop in that area but because of a lack of real guidance as with me it evolved into an unhealthy desire, driven by the darkness in my soul rather than God’s Holy presence.
Spiritual experience must be molded around knowledge but that knowledge must be from a TRUE SOURCE that is grounded upon a solid foundation of fact and reality based decisions, NOT upon feelings and goosebumps as was my experiences in Witchcraft. My Christian Faith UNLIKE those of my Occult experience is based in real facts and realities of faith. At NO TIME while I was involved in the Occult was there real solid evidences of what I experienced ONLY FEELINGS AND GOOSEBUMPS accented by what I witnessed with my eyes. It happened but on a lesser level than my Christian faith revealed God to me.
Scientific Proof God Exists!

There is not one single so-called evidence against God that has had any effect whatsoever upon my faith since 1979 and there never will be because you cannot DISPROVE the reality of God with FACT UNATTACHED TO REALITIES OF FAITH. Faith must be understood from a separate understanding  from“There are no gods or God, so therefore there is no supernatural world.” This is plainly circular reasoning that cannot be disproved as long as you think its a valid reasoning. Its similar to saying “There’s no such thing as snowflakes in my experience and therefore there can be no such thing as Winter.” The question was answered by a man who lived on an Island that never experienced snow or winter as we know it, but was it valid reasoning? Only to the man who said it, because he based his knowledge upon his limited experience living on a winter-less island in the South Pacific. It was completely true in his experience but at the same time was based upon a LACK OF EVIDENCE instead of a full understanding of his location on the earth. 
You cannot base your UNDERSTANDING OF GOD upon your limited experiences with life, created by religious limitations founded in man-made ideas. Its the same with the Occult, its based upon man invented spells, man invented ideas that have attached to them false histories and some truthful facts mixed in. Religion is Religion no matter who states it, no matter who defends it, its man invented pure and simple. The God of scripture is completely unique from all ‘gods’ and ‘demigods’ created in mind of man, there has never in the histories of man been a ‘god or demigod’ who remotely resembles our God, the God of the Bible. Only in certain aspects do they come close but these similarities are ‘vague and obscure’ not exact and factual!

Again it cannot be accomplished by using man-made gods and demigods, man-made ideas about God or religious branding of history. These things are but the shadows of vain and sinful men who tried to recount the creation around them, and unless the true God revealed himself to one of these men as he did, unreliable facts! Facts can be true and untrue depending upon where those facts are being derived from, as in my example above….it was a fact that the man from the island never saw a snowflake but it was NOT a fact that there were no snowflakes anywhere else on earth, but he assumed that because he couldn’t see them that there were none. So facts can be misinterpreted through a lack of true knowledge.
The Occult and its so-called deep knowledge of how the world works is based in manipulated facts, manipulated by demonic entities hidden as ‘gods and demigods’ to the initiated. Demons can manipulate creation to deceive us, to make us see what isn’t true fact as the only facts that are real. Whether or not your foundation is Atheistic or Religious its still based in this circular reasoning that my facts are superior to any facts to the contrary. TRUTH is the only basis upon which facts can come that cannot be disproved to the soul, facts based in TRUTH are rock solid evidences of faith not the ideas of men who try to explain what they are incapable of understanding apart from truth.

As I have stated before Satan, one God’s original created Angels has been around a long, long time. He knows man better than man knows himself FROM THE STANDPOINT OF FLESH AND BLOOD and all the science attached to it. He’s the most knowledgable about creation under God himself, except he perverts and twists that knowledge to an evil advantage. He can use the Laws of nature to manipulate circumstance by stratching to the max the Laws that govern creation. He knows how our bodies work, how our minds work and can twist us if WE WILL IT SO!

So just what is wrong with getting involved in the Occult or some innocent form of the Craft?
Is there really a danger in spiritualistic games, videos or movies, as opposed to DIRECT involvement through membership or practice in the Occult?

Well, the bigger question should be is there a danger in Parents who are clueless about these things; raising clueless kids who carelessly allow the spiritual to enter their knowledge-less minds. Is this not the root of the problem both in the church and without the churches?

Why do we as adults just sit back and allow our children to do as THEY see fit because of cultural differences? Why don’t we learn about all these things in great detail, so our children can have a real sounding board to ask “Why is this bad for me?” Its so simple, it hurts to witness it. Kids do what they shouldn’t simply because Parents let SOCIETY do their babysitting for them, and basic society doesn’t have a clue about right and wrong. If parents, and I do this; would sit down and watch, listen too and otherwise engage their kids toward a the reasoning behind their preaching they would listen.

My Granddaughter opened up to me about the Occult {Her games, her music and her friends} many times because she knows my past, my knowledge about it and because of that she understands ‘THE WHY’ better than if I allowed her to stumble and fall on her own into it! Its NOT about TAKING AWAY her music, her Video games or grounding her because she won’t think my way, its always about giving her the right choices to choose from. She may hate me for a while but my personal wisdom concerning it will pay off in the end. She will direct her steps in the way NOT of me but the Lord whom I give credit for saving me from myself.

Get engaged Parents, don’t stop loving your kids and by all means LEARN WHAT YOUR KIDS LOVE TO DO, WHO THEY SPEND TIME WITH AND WHAT DRIVES THEM. Be God’s tool to direct them to a right choice with a caring and loving hand. As adults you and your kids can learn a lot from both my testimony here and the knowledge contained on this site, do it, get involved for the rest of their lives.

Astrological Nonsense: And Other Superstitions of Merit

I believe Blogging should be informative, then entertaining. To talk without real meaning does no one any good,”Give a man a fish and you fill his stomach for a day but teach a man to fish and HE can fill his stomach with food every day.”

To learn more about the Biblical Answer to Astrology go here: 


http://hopefromdispair.blogspot.com/p/gods-picture-gospel-in-heavens-anti.html

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, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 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.” (Deut. 18:10-12). 
An observer of times is a reference to Astrology. 
It is an abomination, something worthy of God’s judgment.
 Astrology has taken over the lower functions of peoples minds, yes I said taken over, WHY? Because it connects with a part of us that wants to believe in something bigger than we are without giving our lives completely to a God who requires moral following of his commands 24/7.
 
Its a FUN way to lead your life (Some say!) but what everyone misses is the elephant in the room with it, what is this elephant? Simple, THE FACTS behind it, its filled with multiple holes and UNSCIENTIFIC beliefs and the very same people who believe in science as god, read and believe in their Horror-Scope at the same time. 
And he (King Josiah) put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven…..And like unto him was there no king before him, that turned to the LORD with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his might…” (II King 23:5,25). 
A part of Astrology in ancient times was the actual worship of the heavenly bodies; they go hand in hand.
What motivates this hypocritical behavior?
Superstitions like old wives tales, folklore, bizarre beliefs, taboos, omens, lucky & unlucky things have deceived man for Centuries and show no signs of stopping. Even when I was a black Witch I knew Astrology was a fabricated bunch of Non-sense but it was good for a Laugh or two in making people pliable to what I wanted them to do, this is how Satan manipulates mankind into doing his bidding.
 
What better way to get you to go this way or that way but to tell you every morning what YOUR SIGN is going to do? Its so simple really, you become addicted to letting a silly newspaper Horror Scope or a Calender of Chinese astrology manipulate your actions, not only is this stupid but its an insult to the God who created you!
Superstition is a credulous belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge, therefore why do otherwise smart people follow it daily or weekly? It defies all common sense to even look seriously at it for any reason. 
Israel… “Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.” 
 
You cannot practice this heathen art and be a child of God at the same time, its like oil and water or fire and water they do not mix. 
Astrology must be repented of and forsaken.
So what are the major problems with Astrology we need to pay attention too?
Astrology is an ancient practice that assumes that the position of the stars and planets has a direct influence upon people and events. Supposedly, one’s life pattern can be charted by determining the position of the stars and planets at the time of one’s birth. The chart that attempts to accomplish this is known as a “horoscope”. 
Rene Noorbergen explains how one’s horoscope is charted:

For every personal horoscope, the moment of birth is the essential starting point. This, coupled with the latitude and longitude of the individual’s birthplace, provides the initial package for the usual astrological chart. While this is elementary, it is not complete; a factor known as “true local time” must also be considered. 
This “true” time is arrived at by adding or subtracting four minutes for each degree of longitude that your birthplace lies to the east or west of the center of your time zone of birth. Once this has been accomplished, the next step is to convert this “true” time into “sidereal” or star time.
This is done with the aid of an ephemeras, a reference book showing the positions of the planets in relationship to the earth. Checking this star time in an astrological table is the last formal move, for in doing so, the theme of the individual’s “ascendant” -the astrological sign that is supposed to have been rising on the eastern horizon at the moment of birth -is revealed.

Once you have developed this data -these simple steps are no more difficult than solving a seventh-grade math problem -then you are ready to “chart” your horoscope. This means you align the “ascendant” with the nine-o’clock point on the inner circle of the horoscope, and from there you are prepared to “read” the various zodiacal “houses” that control your life and fortune 
(Rene Noorbergen, The Soul Hustlers, Grand Rapids, MI Zondervan, 1976, pp. 176,177).
The claims that astrologists have made have drawn severe criticism from the scientific community. 
In September, 1975, 186 prominent American scientists, along with 18 Nobel Prize winners, spoke out against “the pretentious claims of astrological charlatans,” saying, among other things, that there is no scientific basis whatsoever for the assumption that the stars foretell events and influence lives. 
Did you get that:
 
“No Scientific Basis Whatsoever”
The following are some of the reasons the practice of astrology must be rejected as both unscientific and unbiblical.
Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.” (Jer. 10:1-2).

Statistics tell us that there are ten million devoted followers of Astrology in the United States, and there are another 40 million who dabble in it. 
Two thirds of the English read the Astrology columns along with 53% of the French and 63% of the Germans. 
Astrological columns can be found in more than 1,200 newspapers in North America as compared to Billy Graham’s column (Christianity’s largest) which can be found in only 200.
 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, show unto the king; But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets…
Now I ask you :
How come different Astrologers recommend different things to the same people on the same day? 
Virgos were told by Carrol Righter to stay home, while Snyder Omar told them to go out. Libras were told by Francis Drake to plan the day as they wished, but Jeane Dixon said that all personal plans would fail that day. Antiquarians were told by Drake to follow carefully their plans for the day, while Omar said, “Lay low.” 
Who are we to believe? This is utter nonsense even if your crazy or just plain dumb, no one could possibly believe it! Its no different than believing that Congress wants to help us and all the while their taking away our rights, come on people grow a brain!
 
Or could they? 
 
Why are newspaper horoscopes so vague?, its a guessing man’s game with our emotions, suggesting things so we SELF FULFILL the rest, its a total scam from start to finish.
Some follow it as a NATIONAL part of Heritage like the Chinese, its part of their ingrained History as a people just like most Superstitions are but that is not an excuse God will except from his people, who should know better. 
The “Farmer’s Almanac” is often far more specific and just as accurate, but it is not worshiped, we like to pick and choose our gods to worship. The Hypocrisy is overwhelming!
How come, if a person’s exact time and place of birth is important, newspapers can predict fortunes months ahead without knowledge of these facts? Its simple, they make LOTS of money from it and the facts be damned and AS LONG as the public isn’t wise to the scam, all’s well.
 
Why is it that only twelve constellations affect us, while billions of Constellations in the heaven’s do not affect? Who made the few to rule while the rest don’t have a say?
 
This fact alone makes every claim by these bone heads FUNNY at best!
How come the discovery of NEW planets hasn’t moved the charts to change your future, if they were there before they knew it, then those planets were affecting our lives too? Yet no effort  is ever made to include the new data or update the outdated results.
Why hasn’t Astrology accounted for the gradual shift in the lines of the poles, surely that has to affect their predictions greatly? Must be why my sign has ALWAYS BEEN OFF these past 51 years?
Astrologers tell us that people born in October are Libras, but scientists know that they are actually Virgos, a glaring mistake I’d say.Our calendars are nothing like the ones used by the ancients and there hasn’t been an attempt to reconcile them ether.
Why don’t facts match predictions? 
We are told that Libras are supposed to be the more artistic, yet the statistics don’t bear this out in any way. The same goes for every prediction out there, with closer looking one can ALWAYS see an error in prediction, its so childish really. Why can’t thinking people use their heads for more than containers of “leftover thoughts”?
And what about people born close to the earth’s poles without planet or sign visible? Is their future blank or unpredictable, try to get an answer to that one!
Why do Astrologers in India and China use different signs than those in the West, if the signs are there to see wouldn’t they look alike no matter where you were on the earth? This alone PROVES beyond a shadow of a doubt that its made up nonsense! 
Each country around the world at some point in its history looked up and saw stars in the heavens and connected the dots to form animals and people holding objects that meant something different to each nation, they applied their meanings to their culture, other nations COPIED theirs and rewrote their meanings onto it and so on and so on. 
BUT IF ASTROLOGY IS TRUE THEN THIS COULD NOT HAPPEN, IT WOULD BE TOTALLY CONSISTENT ACROSS THE BOARD, EVERY SIGN WOULD LOOK THE SAME AND EVERY MEANING WOULD BE THE SAME WITHOUT FAIL. 
 
That I could trust in as reliable, knowing that every time I looked at my sign anywhere in any culture I could rely on the actions I took on the advice they gave me. This would be a solid rock of predictive power, BUT alias no such thing exists!
How do you know which influences are bad and which are good, whose the moral judge in this pagan religion that has influenced us? Why,when we can’t believe in a God that gave his life for us and gave his direction for our lives, do we turn around and let the Comics guide our lives let’s at least be consistent here!
Mars is supposed to be bad, but why is it bad, because its FACE isn’t smiling, maybe its RED because its embarrassed or just MAD because you think its bad? If you can make up stuff so can’t I!
Why is the hour of birth more important than the hour of conception when life actually begins, are the stars “Pro-Choice”? It’s funny how every principle of God is wanting in this evil system isn’t it?
Why is it that most true scientists repudiate Astrology?
