Witchcraft: What it IS, What it IS NOT!

I believe Blogging should be informative, then entertaining. To talk without real meaning does http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1603740333&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrno 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.”
I am reprinting the Following Article about Witchcraft as it contains everything I as a former Witch (Warlock) am confident in its completeness and facts for those who don’t know anything about the Occult or have miss conceptions about those who practice these things.
I have for many years DEFENDED those who practice the Occult, NOT their practices but their humanity, there are many practitioners with  GOOD HEART’S who mean well toward their fellow men and women. 
I remember well when I was first saved and wished to give my testimony at a church how they would squirm and get in fear and usually make dumb statements like:
“We don’t want to make them mad and have them retaliate against our church, so please don’t get controversial!”
I used to think “Wow, what faith in God you have!” 
THEY ARE NO BETTER AND NO WORSE than you or I and at the same time there are those who take advantage just like the same kind of Hypocrites in Religions we all can name! 
If Satan can’t defeat the true church, how in the world can any occultist do it?
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0883687356&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThere is absolutely no excuse for Christians to treat them any different than any person who sins. I was there, YOU were there, so God’s kind of Love doesn’t differ between the types of wrongdoing, God Judges differently but he treats all men alike with his love….so should we!
Please read the following Article keeping in mind they are simply mere human beings who believe different that you do, they can’t believe in Jesus if YOU act high and mighty ABOVE THEM. Remember YOU are not better than them, YOU ARE because of what Jesus has done simply BETTER OFF!

Witchcraft explained

Witchcraft is said to be the use of magic through gardless of sex.
Practices which are classed as witchcraft

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=088419454X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThroughout time, any practice which is thought to harm others by intent is said to be a form of witchcraft, some of the more common types of witchcraft are

Wishing harm on another’s person or property

This is perhaps the most well known of all witchcraft and usually involves the use of a curse or hex performed with the sole purpose of bringing harm to the intended victim or that persons property. Spells can also be used to change a persons will and make them do something they otherwise wouldn’t, an example of this would be to make someone fall in love with you and this type of witchcraft is said to be white magic.

Spell casting

Perhaps one of the most well known aspects of witchcraft is the http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=088368683X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrwitches ability to cast spells, we all visualise the witch stirring the bubbling cauldron whispering an incantation over the spell. However concocting spells in cauldrons is not the only way witches cast spells, spells can be cast through a variety of means. Some of the more popular methods involve the use of candles burning, chanting and reciting incantations, physical rituals and the preparation of herbal remedies.

Awakening the dead

Awakening or conjuring the spirits of the dead is a practice of witchcraft known as necromancy, the “witch of endor” is said to have routinely practiced this form of witchcraft for divination and prophecy, and it is also a form that the witch doctors of Jamaica performed in their voodoo ceremonies.

Witchcraft in the past

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1603740465&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThe practice of witchcraft using the methods described above was widespread in the past and was foremost in ancient Egypt and Babylonia as documentation has shown. During the Vedic, age witches were then called yoginis and the form of witchcraft was abhichara, witchcraft in this era was mainly aimed at Aryan people and took on the form of magical incantations.

The Hebrew bible constantly makes reference to witchcraft and condemns the practices as does also the New Testament in the bible, other popular forms of witchcraft which have been documented is African witchcraft and neopagan witchcraft.

The African form of witchcraft we all know is the witch doctor, the witch doctor traditionally practiced medicine as ways of healing people and also putting a curse or hex on unfortunate victims.

Types of witchcraft

There is a lot more to witchcraft and witches than the haggard, wart nosed old woman with the black cape, broomstick and black cat. Witchcraft comes in many shapes and forms and has been practised the world over in many different cultures.
The renaissance and gothic Satanism

During the renaissance in the middle ages, the Roman Catholic Church proclaimed that evil people, mostly women had sold their sole to the devil and worshipped him in exchange for certain supernatural powers the devil bestowed upon them.

They were said to be witches who worshiped Diana and other goddesses of this time, they were classed as pure evil and are said to have took part in the kidnapping of babies and killing and eating their victims.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0801068258&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThey were said to posses the ability to fly through the air in the middle of the night and hold meetings where spell casting took place and evil wrong doings. These were all beliefs that the people during this period held and thousands of people were convicted of being a witch and worshiping the devil and were executed in what has come to be known as the “burning times”.

Wicca

Wicca is a more recent form of witchcraft and is a religion-based form of witchcraft; it is based on deities, seasonal times and symbols and is a form of celebration for the Celtic people. Some followers of Wicca call themselves witches, pagans or neo-pagans and both men and women who follow this religion are called witches.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0805448802&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThere are basically two laws that must be followed and these are the Wiccan rede and the three-fold law. The Wiccan rede says that those following the religion are free to do as they please as long as they harm no other; the three-fold law says that any evil that is done to others will return three times over.

These laws obviously encourage the Wiccan to do only good and any magic they practise is white magic and usually involves healing spells and incantations.

Religious Satanism

Modern day Satanists worship Satan and there are three main traditions to the followers of this religion, the church of Satan, the temple of set and church of satanic liberation. The church of Satan is thought to be the biggest of these and currently holds thousands of members in the United States.
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1453849408&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrMost Satanists believe that Satan is a force of nature not a particular deity and has nothing to do with the usual associations we think of when we think of Satan or the devil. Satanists as you would expect are the total opposite of Wiccan and delight in causing harm and destruction wherever possible and only practise black magic.Witchcraft & wicca FAQs

* Can I follow the path of Wicca and witchcraft and still be a Christian?

There are many common factors of Wicca and being a Christian so the two are not worlds apart, so some say that yes the two can go hand in hand while others (Myself included) claim that there are no connections at all to Wicca and Christianity. 
 
The two seem to compliment each other and the most important issue is doing what GOD SAYS FOR YOU TO DO NOT WHAT “FEELS GOOD” 
 
Because feelings can deceive the Heart. Having been a Wiccan I can attest to the fact that most Wiccans HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS TO HARM NO ONE ELSE, BUT ONLY TO http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1886296383&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrLIVE AND ENJOY LIFE AS THEY SEE FIT.* Are witchcraft and Wicca the same thing?

People have different views regarding this; however, there are some main differences to the two which are worth noting, in general, Wicca’s are free to review different systems of belief and take what they want from the different beliefs and blend them together. 
 
Pure witchcraft however relies on using magic and rituals to work with elemental and spiritual forces of nature. Some feel these differences are only slight and Wicca and witchcraft both have the same goals of working to achieve balance and harmony within nature.

* Whom does the witch worship?

Witches believe that there is a single force and this force is http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0785250263&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrdefined as “the one”, with the force being the universe. This divine energy is usually personified and witches will call it the goddess or god; however, this title is only put there to make it easier for the human mind to comprehend. When some witches invoke the god or goddess, they might give those names such as Odin, pan, Dianna or Astarte, but this is only a matter of personal preference.

* Are witches anti-Christian?

Witchcraft and followers of Wicca are very tolerant towards other religions and views, Wiccan’s hold the law of “harm no other” and as such allow others to speak their beliefs freely. Wicca’s believe that there are many paths to the same destination and it doesn’t matter which one you choose to get there as long as no harm is done along the way.

* Wicca’s profess to follow the Wicca rede and this says, “harm no others and do as you will”, does this mean that the witch can do anything they want as long as they can justify it?

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0891076077&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThe whole philosophy behind Wicca is based on living in complete harmony with all other things; this includes every living thing in the world around them. Following this rule, the witch has to make sure that no harm comes to any living thing in the world so the answer would be no, they could not please themselves if they thought that harm was going to come from something no matter how much it could be justified. The tools of witchcraft

There are many sacred tools that witches have used for thousand of years and there are numerous systems and traditions that they use, with some witches choosing to work in very elaborate settings while others use only the bare essentials and prefer a more natural approach. Listed below are some of items and tools that witches commonly use and items which we associate with witches.Athame

The Athame is more commonly know as a knife and most witches will own several ritual knives, the Athame is a very personal and magical tool which the witch will take great care over when http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1616381272&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrobtaining. The Athame should fit comfortably in the hand and feel right with many witches going to great lengths to make their own blades and hone them to perfection.

They also personalize them with great care with runes, carvings and other symbols with special meanings to them, with some witches preferring to use family heirlooms such as letter openers as their Athame.

The broom

Who doesn’t think of witches without thinking of the broom, this has been a symbol of the witch for thousands of years and indeed they do use it for the cleansing ritual. Many witches will also place a broom outside of their door with the brushy side up to ward off http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0927545055&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrevil spirits and to stop unwanted outside energies from entering the home.

The bell

Perhaps not one of the most widely known tools of the witch, the bell is said to have magical properties and for centuries, it was thought to posses magical or spiritual powers. Bells are also associated with the divine and are commonly used in the opening and closing of ceremonies and the start and closing of spell casting.

The cauldron

The cauldron is another symbol that we all associate with the witch; the traditional cauldron has three legs and is thought to represent bounty and blessings. The cauldron has also come to be known as representing the reincarnation and the cycles of birth, death and rebirth. Witches will burn incense in them or create spells in them and the witch will have cauldrons in different sizes http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0981752802&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrfor the different tasks they want to perform.

The chalice

The chalice is a cup which is used on the altar and normally represents the female principle of water, chalices can be made of any material but most witches prefer silver or pewter. The chalice is used with the Athame in the enactment of the great rite, which is the union of male and female from which life springs forth. The chalice can also be used to form a bond and will be passed around from person to person so they can all drink from it.

The Paton or altar pentacle

The pentacle for the altar is usually a disk or plate which is http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1599798727&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrinscribed with a five pointed star surrounded by a circle, this will be used to consecrate the various other tools used and is also used as a concentration point for other magical spells. The laws of witchcraft

Unlike most religions and beliefs witchcraft does not have a long list of rules which have to be adhered to, there are only two basic laws which must be followed and adhered to at all times. These two rules are known as the Wiccan rede and the three-fold law; these two principles hold what the witches define as ethic and moral behaviour within the practice of witchcraft.
The three-fold law

Many people will have heard the three-fold law put a different way, some people call it cause and effect, it literally means “what we reap, we will sow” and get back three times. 
 
This is thought to be the reasons why many witches of today are loathe to practice black magic as this would turn around and come back at them three-fold. The witches of today primarily http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0890818681&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrbelong to a group or coven called the Wiccan and this law and the Wiccan rede are strictly followed.

The Wiccan rede

The law of the Wiccan rede states that witches are free to do whatever they wish as long as no harm befalls themselves and others. Harm is defined as physical, mental and physic damage to themselves and others around them. For the majority of today’s witches harming others is simply something that is unthinkable and as such only good or white magic spells are performed.

The universe plays a big part in modern witchcraft and all things are thought to be connected to all others. All spells which are cast by the witch of today are directed towards a specific task and are http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1578564425&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifronly cast after a great deal of thought has been given to them and the outcome.

One question that is often asked of the modern witch is while upholding this law are they then to take mistreatment from others without retaliating, the answer of course is no, witches will place a protection spell around themselves and their loved ones. The protection spell will then neutralize harmful energies back into the universe without doing harm, the witch then waits for justice to even out as what comes around goes around and therefore justice will take place.

Code of ethics for healers

Certain witches are pagan healers and as such, they are bound by a code of ethics which they must follow, the ethics are:

* The primary obligation of the healer is to those they are healing.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0830746013&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr* Any knowledge gained during a consultation should be kept confidential.

* Always be self critical and acknowledge your limitations.

* Work in co-operation with other healers.

* Always take into account the customs, values and beliefs of your client.

* They must not act in any way that would bring the wicca community into disrepute.

* If you feel ethically or morally compromised you have the right to refuse treatment.


* The healer should seek help when treating with herbal treatments. © Copyright 2006 Occultresearch.org – occult, cults, witchcraft & black magic – All rights reserved
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

COME OUT FROM FALSE WORSHIP MY PEOPLE and touch not the unclean thing! "TALKING TO THE DEAD" A religious practice of dead religion FORBIDDEN BY God!

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.”
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0040JI19Y&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr“After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a habitation of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!'” (Revelation 18:1,2).
“And I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities'” (Revelation 18:4,5).
Babylon (or Babel) was the capital of an ancient empire. The name means “confusion” and originates from the confusion of languages which halted the building of the tower of Babel.
Symbolically, Babylon represents the confusion of idolatry and false religion. “And look, here comes a chariot of men with a pair of horsemen! And he answered and said, ‘Babylon is fallen, is fallen! And all the carved images of her gods He has broken to the ground'” (Isaiah 21:9).
  “Declare among the nations, Proclaim, and set up a standard; http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B003MGKCIY&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrProclaim, and do not conceal it — Say, ‘Babylon is taken, Bel is shamed. Merodach is broken in pieces; Her idols are humiliated, Her images are broken in pieces'” (Jeremiah 50:2). 
 
“And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Revelation 17:5). Harlotry represents unfaithfulness to the true God through the worship of idols (Exodus 34:15,16; Leviticus 20:5; Deuteronomy 31:16; Psalm 73:27; Judges 2:17; 8:33; Jeremiah 2:20; 3:1; Ezekiel 16:15-17). In all ages, Satan — that old serpent, the enemy of God and man — has supplied the world with a confusion of false religions,BUT no Religion so GREAT AND CONFUSING AS CATHOLICISM WHICH FULFILLS THIS PROPHESY PERFECTLY!
Israel was carried away into Babylonian captivity as punishment for its apostasy and idolatry and even today is “Politically” Deceived by the Harlots lies as is the WHOLE WORLD!
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0865547203&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrFlee from Babylon! THIS IS GOD’S CRY TOWARD HIS OWN PEOPLE IN ALL THE WORLD WHO ARE DECEIVED BY THE FALSE RELIGION THAT PROMISES PEACE AND SAFETY IN IT’S ARMS,WHILE FORCING US TO DRINK FROM IT’S “CUP OF INIQUITY” the Church today has made an alliance with the “MURDERER OF THE SAINTS OF THE PAST” A CONCORDAT OF DEATH with the Master of death. 
THE PITCHER PLANT IN NATURE IS THE PERFECT REPRESENTATION OF THE VATICAN’S TRUE INTENTIONS REGARDING THE SAINTS OF GOD WITHIN IT’S GRASP TODAY,DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY IT’S BEAUTY.

The Antichrist Church has ONLY one REASON FOR DECEIVING THE SAINTS AND THAT IS TO CONSUME THEIR LIFE FROM THE EARTH,SO DO NOT LET THE “HAIRS” of UNITY BLOCK YOU FROM ESCAPE,FOR THE “FLUID” of DESTRUCTION AWAITS THE SAINTS WHO GO TO FAR INTO IT’S DOCTRINAL ABYSS!

“Move from the midst of Babylon, Go out of the land of the Chaldeans; And be like the rams before the flocks” (Jeremiah 50:8). “Flee from the midst of Babylon, And every one save his life! Do not be cut off in her iniquity, For this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; He shall recompense her” (Jeremiah 51:6). 
 We would have Healed Babylon (The common EXCUSE FROM CATHOLICS WHO ARE “Born Again is that they are working from within to bring change), But she is not healed (Some have come out and that’s good BUT GOD SAYS COME OUT OR SHARE IN HER DESTRUCTION). Forsake her, and (HER DOCTRINES OF DEVILS) let us go everyone to his own country; For her judgment reaches to heaven and is lifted up to the skies. The Lord has revealed our righteousness. Come and let us declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God”

“TALKING TO THE DEAD” A religious practice of dead religion FORBIDDEN BY God!

I am coming at this problem from an angle that I personally am familiar with as a former black witch in the Occult for 8 years. You may be asking…”Is there such as thing as a sixth sense?
Is it possible to communicate with the spirit world?”
Popular television shows like Ghost Whisperer, Medium and John Edward Cross Country all seem to suggest that talking to the dead and communicating with spirits is quite possible and even normal, most of the time these shows are well made and entertaining.
I personally like to watch these shows for the pure entertainment value ALONE with the exception of John Edwards whom I believe is a fake Medium at best AND A REALLY GOOD GUESSER But what does the Bible say about talking to the dead?
The Old Testament warns against consulting (And this means in ANY FORM DIRECTLY or INDIRECTLY ) with mediums and psychics in several instances. These practices are considered detestable to the Lord.WHY?
 
Because God knows that in doing this we are really “Communicating with Demons” NOT WITH THE PEOPLE WE HAVE LOST! 
 You may be thinking…What does this have to do with the Church..both Catholic & Protestant? According to a recent study by the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion, 20 percent of Americans believe that the living can communicate with the dead. In an on line survey of 10,000 Beliefnet members, 77 percent said they’d felt the presence of a spirit, angel or dead soul. 
Both the survey results and the TV statistics indicate that women are more likely to believe it’s possible to interact with the spirit world. Forty-six percent of women surveyed believed that “the souls of the dead protect the living as spirit guides,” compared with 27 percent of men. Women were also more likely than men to believe that “the dead can hear our prayers or intercede with God on our behalf.”
Most interesting, people tend to view these spirits as protectors who may intervene to help in their daily lives. Forty-two percent in the Beliefnet survey said the souls protect the living by acting as guardian angels or spirit guides. Can you communicate with the dead only if you’re a psychic—or a TV star? Thirty-six percent of Beliefnet poll respondents believed that talking to the dead is “something that everyone has potential for.” 
All this interest in communicating with the dead comes despite the fact that Jews and Christians have prohibitions against it. The Bible says, “There shalhttp://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0801426480&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrl not be found among you any one that consults a ghost or familiar spirit, or a necromancer” (Deut. 18:10). One respondent captured a common Christian view when he said the appearance of a loved one is “the Devil in disguise.” These spirits are “simply a way to try to move us away from our close relationship with God.”

The Old Testament term for communicating with the dead is “necromancy.” (Deuteronomy 18:11, also read verse 10) It is forbidden by God: “There shall not be found among you… For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord” (an “abomination,” KJV). 

Also see: 1 Samuel 28:3-20; 2 Chronicles 10:13, 14; Isaiah 8:19-22.
The punishment for contacting the dead is very severe, if not repented of. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1441550429&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThis must also include what Roman Catholicism claims is praying to the “saints” — the deceased who have been beatified, canonized, or placed in a position of spiritual superiority by the hierarchy. (Scripture refers to all believers as “saints.”) 
The real force at work in such “apparitions” (appearances of the deceased) is deception: demonic activity, evil spirits. I am a personal witness to these deceptive beings “Pretending ” to be humans who once lived on earth,it does happen for Satan disguises himself as “an angel of light,” it says in 2 Corinthians 11:14. (He doesn’t approach us saying, “Boo!” or we’d run & hide.) 
When prophecies or visions fail to come to pass, we know they’re not of God (Deuteronomy 18:21-22). But even if a vision or prophecy DOES COME TO PASS (and Satan can & does have the power to make THINGS COME TO PASS AS HE SAID THEY WOULD,AS LONG AS THAT THING IS WITHIN THE PLAN OF GOD;SO DON’T BE FOOLED, scripture says, we are still instructed to discern the source: if it doesn’t glorify Jesus — if it glorifies any other person, living or dead — it’s not of God. 
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0975551426&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrWhen someone claims to have received a “vision” of the dead, it’s really a deception of the enemy — demon forces at work. Luke chapter 16 contains excellent instruction on the state of the dead, referring to an impassable separation between the after-life and this world. Those in the next world, saved or otherwise, simply do not return to deliver messages to the living:
“[Lazarus] died and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom,” and the rich man died and suffered torment in Hades. A “great gulf” separated the two and was “fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.” (Luke 16:19-31)
Another example is the instance in which, at the death of his son, David testified: “I shall go to him, but he shall not return unto me.” (2 Samuel 12:15-23) 
Not all miracles are of God. Satan performs lying signs and wonders (Exodus 7:9-12; 8:7, 17-19; Deuteronomy 13:1-5; Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; 2 Thessalonians 2:9; Revelation 13:13-14, 16:14; 19:20) The magicians in the times of Moses and Daniel could perform some magic (Exodus 7:9-12; 8:7; Daniel 1:20) … but their power is limited (Exodus 8:17-19; Daniel 2:2, 10, 27; 4:7; 5:7-8, 15). 
Many Roman Catholics and others, lacking discernment* and knowledge of the Scriptures (“My people perish for lack of knowledge”) — and trusting the hierarchy of man — fail to “test the spirits and see whether they be of God” (1 John 4:1). They assume the priests do that for them! Some of the primary points relative to this issue include:
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1585020303&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIf a sign or wonder predicted comes to pass, but the person is enticed to follow after another god, we are to reject it. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5) Also, if the message delivered is contrary to Scripture, it’s not from God (Isaiah 8:20; 2 Timothy 3:16). Some religious messages don’t glorify Jesus at all; rather, the “vision” is glorified and, repeated again and again, perpetuated by tradition. 
The Roman Catholic practice of praying to and for the dead can be traced in part to the Old Testament apocryphal books (2 Maccabees 12:46 “It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead.”) These books, rejected from the canon (“rule,” or “standard”) of Scripture, contain historical and geographical errors, and many teachings inconsistent with the rest of scripture: salvation by almsgiving; suicide; magic; angelic intercession; etc. Definitely nothing sturdy upon which to base one’s eternal destiny.
Matthew 24:23-27 (KJV)”Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0849905990&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrColossians 2:18 (KJV)” Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,” 
1 Peter 5:8 (KJV)” Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: “
Isaiah 8:19-20 (KJV)”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? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. “
Now here is a direct reference to a Lying spirit telling us he goes into men to Lie and mislead,but in this case God is using this Demon to his advantage to bring his plan into being for Israel.
1 Kings 22:21-23 (KJV)”And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. “

The Catholic Teaching of Praying to Saints and the virgin Mary HAVE WITCHCRAFT WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!
If you are a Roman Catholic, it would be very wise to be concerned as to why the Catholic Church teaches some things that are totally contrary to God’s word? 
One of these things the Bible clearly teaches us is that we are not to have or pray to graven images (statues).
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God”, Exodus 20:4-5a THIS GOES FOR ALL CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE PICTURES OF JESUS OR CROSSES AROUND THEIR NECKS AS WELL! 
The Truth”. Worship is a tricky thing and can be done sometimes without knowing it with Charms that we think ARE HARMLESS!

We all need to study God’s word daily so we can understand His truth. Another big difference and concern is, why do Catholics pray to saints when the Bible teaches very clearly to only pray to God?

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1609573382&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIf you are praying to Mary or a saint; you are also practicing necromancy. Necromancy is communicating with those who are dead. It is a hideous sin that is an abomination to a holy God.Deut. 8:10-12 “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. “
Abomination is one of the strongest words used by God for something He utterly detests. ARE THE SAINTS DEAD? HAS MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS DIED? THE ANSWER IS …YES! THEY ARE ALL DEAD,THEREFORE WE ARE FORBIDDEN TO TALK TO THEM OR ASK FOR ADVICE FROM THEM! The usual argument that this a spiritual exercise to bring us closer to God does NOT WORK BECAUSE OF THIS SPECIFIC WARNING!

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1599794616&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrIn fact, you will be totally shocked and appalled to know that there is only one place recorded in the Bible where a person prayed to a saint. It was from the fiery depths of hell! Spoken from the very mouth of Jesus Himself of how a wicked man prayed in hell to a saint. Let us read the whole parable that Jesus spoke, so you cannot miss it:

“There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1434345319&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrThen he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead” (Luke 16:19-31).

This man prayed to and called Abraham his father, and this was very wrong. We all know that Abraham was a righteous man in scripture. He was a great man of faith. If he wasn’t to be prayed to, then no other saints are to be prayed to either. If you are praying to Mary or any other saint you will also be where this rich man was one day. Jesus tells us to call no man Father except God in heaven. Why are priests called Father?
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven” Matthew 23:9.
As he prayed to Abraham he knew where he had gone wrong. He had not repented while he had been alive. Now it was to late! But he still had mercy on his brothers, but unfortunately he was indoctrinated into believing that Abraham could help them.
The rich man in hell was telling a saint what would happen if those who rose from the dead would go to his brothers. Just like in his former life, the rich man obviously thought he knew what was best, but where did it get him? A place called hell! We need to trust in God’s word’s, not any priest’s, not our own heart; nothing… but the word of God!

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0768432367&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrJesus Christ died on the cross and shed His atoning blood so we could be forgiven of our sins. “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;” Hebrews 9:28. There is absolutely no other sacrifice needed! Jesus paid our debt of sin in full!.

Jesus said: “repent ye, and believe the gospel” Mark 1:15. All He wants us to do is repent and believe His Gospel. Now that we know what repent means, what does it mean to believe the Gospel? This does not just mean to believe in God and believe what he did. Most people already believe in God or a higher power that they call god. Believing the Gospel is much more than this. It is to believe that much in the Lord Jesus Christ that it causes a change of heart. You become born again and set aside for God’s purposes. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name”: John 1:12.

Dear Catholic friend, ask yourself the most important question; do you trust in God’s word or in man’s? As you have seen, the Bible and Catholic teachings appear to be completely different on what really matters most. Which way will you turn? Will you trust in the living and the risen savior? The One who rose from the dead so you can live again? 

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0802401430&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrOr will you continue to trust in man’s word which will not be able to do anything for you when you stand at the judgment seat of Christ. Are you still determined to pray to any dead saint or idol? What can they possibly do for you once you are in hell? Why not put your trust in Jesus Christ, the living Lord and Savior the only one who can save you from death and hell. “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” Revelation 1:18.

PRAY TO GOD ALONE

Now is the time to repent and pray to God the Father in heaven who is the only one that can save you from hell by His Son Jesus Christ. “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” Matthew 10:28
