Be SURE to be KIND to ALL the “Trick or Treaters,” as would JESUS 🙀 😽 And don’t forget to PRAY for EVERYONE on this NIGHT.
DURING this time of year, specifically this DAY,
there are SOME who idolize the DARKNESS
BEYOND the VEIL of our DIMENSION
I ask that you forgive me for being blunt. However,
Even SOME Theology is BASED on a faulty premise at the onset, That leads people into imagining they are able to contact dead.
IF Your theology is based upon the use of
THESE Three incorrect premises:
1) God speaks through witches/mediums
2) God speaks through the dead, using mediums
3) God spoke to Saul, thru dead Samuel, using a witch
Allow me to directly address these 3 main premises:
Faulty premise # 1) “God speaks through witches”/mediums
• God does not, they are an “abomination”
• God warns that we shall die, if we do (Lev.20:26-27) 🅰️
• Thus the devil (not God) “prophesied” Saul’s death
“There shall NOT be found among you ANY ONE… that uses 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)
Faulty premise # 2) “God speaks through the dead” –
• God does NOT speak through the dead, using mediums
• God has NEVER spoken through the dead, using any means
• God says, I Am “not the God of the dead, but of the living” (Mark 12:27)
“… the slain that lie in the grave,…Thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand….Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee?”
“The dead praise not the LORD.” “The dead know not any thing” (Ps.88:5,10;115:17;Eccl.9:5)
Faulty premise # 3) “God spoke to Saul, thru dead Samuel”
• God wasn’t speaking to Saul (much less thru dead Samuel”)
• God no longer “answered” Saul. No matter what Saul did!
• Saul was desperate, because in his heart he knew he was spiritually lost, & said, “GOD is DEPARTED from me”
Saul, was CUT OFF from God and said,
“…I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and GOD is DEPARTED from me, and ANSWERS me NO MORE, NEITHER by prophets, NOR by dreams: therefore I have called thee [the devil, in a witch’s den], that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do” (1 Sam.28:15)
Samuel did not talk to Saul.
Saul only imagined it was “Samuel” —
“Saul perceived that it was Samuel” (1 Sam.28:14)
Saul was under a “strong delusion” (2 Thess,2:11-12)
One word, such as the word, “Samuel,”
OR one-half a sentence, such as “Saul perceived that it was Samuel,” Does not negate all the other words, or all the other sentences in the Bible Regarding God’s WARNING against talking to the “dead”!
“Now Samuel was DEAD [& “knows not any thing”]…And Saul had put away [killed] those that had familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land [because God told him to do it]. And the Philistines gathered themselves together,…. And when Saul saw the host of the Philistines, he was afraid, and his heart greatly trembled. And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him NOT, NEITHER by dreams, NOR by Urim [priests direct communication with God],🅱️ NOR by PROPHETS” (1 Samuel 28:3-6)
Jesus will not send “dead” to communicate, for Jesus said,
“…They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them [living prophets]….If they hear NOT Moses and the prophets, NEITHER will they be persuaded, though one rose from the DEAD” (Luke 16:29-31)
Paraphrasing Jesus, “They aren’t hearing the living, So why would I use the dead?!”
God was not talking with Saul by LIVING “prophets,” priests (Urim) or “dreams”- so why would God bother to use a dead prophet?
🅰️ God says that witches are to die.
Here, are the VERY words out of “the witch of Endor’s” mouth:
“And the woman [witch] said unto him [the disguised Saul], Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off [by killing] those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then lay thou a snare for my life, to cause me to DIE?” (1 Sam.28:9)
HERE is TEXT upon which this LAW is based:
“And ye shall be HOLY unto me: for I the LORD am HOLY,* and have SEVERED you from OTHER people, that ye should be mine. A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a WIZARD, shall surely be put to DEATH: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them” (Lev.20:26-27)
* God is “HOLY” & would never use a witch or “wizards” to communicate a message!
HOWEVER, we are NOT to STONE anyone, if they use mediums to contact the demons pretending to be our dead loved ones. Because we are NO Longer under a THEOCRACY (nor should we be)
🅱️ Q: Does GOD speak to us today by “URIM”?!
A: read this Text closely:
“…And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him NOT, NEITHER by dreams, NOR by URIM [priests direct communication with God], NOR by PROPHETS” (1 Samuel 28:3-6).
After reading, you probably noticed that God at times spoke to king Saul, “by dreams” and “by prophets” (as well as “by Urim).”
God also speaks to us by these methods, as that text is reinforced in Joel 2:28
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon ALL flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall [be as prophets &] prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”
Yet, we don’t have the “Urim and Thummim” specifically mentioned, but in a diligent Bible study you can determine that since Jesus is our High Priest up in the heavenly Sanctuary (as Hebrews 9 says), and we know that the High Priests always wore the “Breastplate” with the names of the 12 tribes upon it, as well the two “black onyx stones” on one side of the shoulder and then the other (as that of the “Urim and Thummim”) then NOW we can approach God’s Throne, as Hebrews 4:14-16 says, and still receive that Word. Yet this time directly from Jesus’ mouth to your ear.
Q: How did the “Urim and Thummim” work?
A: that’s something we have to deal with in a separate post. SOON COMING 👻
You may be able to “Google” and find the basic principle of how it worked in Old Testament times, but you still won’t have a clear concept of how it works today. But happy hunting any way🎃
