Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
One night while sitting Indian style on the floor of the room that was to become my makeshift sanctuary, I looked up to Heaven, as if looking at the face of God and said, “ You say right here (as I pointed to the scripture) to call to You and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know. So I am calling to You, God, to show me great and mighty things which I do not know. If You can do it for Jeremiah, then You can do it for Molly.”
I figured that if anything happened in the Bible to anyone then it could happen again and to me. I didn’t have anyone around telling me I couldn’t do something like that. From that moment on, I would learn scriptures and then repeat them back to God when I would talk to Him. I always got an answer. I didn’t have to pay for it either. I didn’t have to wonder if this was the answer. But it took me years of failure to come to this point. I wouldn’t have readily accepted anyone telling me years earlier. I was ready to try God. Frankly, I didn’t turn to God a lot earlier in my life because I thought I had to give up partying and doing what I wanted. All of the bad choices and decisions in my life needed a Father’s hand and answer but I didn’t know God could actually talk to you. I can tell you I certainly wished I had chosen to walk with Christ a lot sooner in my life. I thought getting answers was for fortune tellers and psychics. What I learned about them really sent me reeling.
When I was little, some of the fads were Ouija boards, Magic Eight Balls, and séances. All this was done to see into the future or talk to the dead. When I was little, I found it very enthralling. When I became an adult and my life was “in the tubes,” I called a psychic network. I was informed that for the low, low price of $75.00, I could be told what my future held for me. I ended up counseling the person on the phone and I had to pay to do it! I believe there is something brewing in this nation at this time because of all this activity, and I am here to call a spade a spade and set the record straight.
The world is becoming darker. Bad things are happening all around us. We wince as we listen to the news about another kidnapping, another killing spree, and we want to forget about it because we don’t, on the whole, like bad things to happen to us. We are changing the rules in our nation as we go along and think that it’s okay. Times have changed, people have changed, and we would all like to go back to an easier, happier way of life, as we wonder what in the world is going on.
We search for the answers in all the wrong places and seemingly get momentary pieces of relief and happiness. We soon find our lives go back to the same old patterns. A lot of us say that this world has gone “to hell in a handbasket” and then sit back and let others solve the problems, do the job, or fight it out. We do not think that our one voice can possibly make a difference.
As a result, we end up following any teaching or anyone who “seems” like they know what is going on. However, we have all the answers we will ever need if we will only seek THE ONE who can truly tell us what is going on. We take everyone else’s word for what is going on when we should be seeking it out for ourselves. Why would we trust anyone else with our life, our minds and our way of thinking? We exalt TV and radio personalities as gods and follow everything they say. I know; I did too. But, I am here to tell you some of the things I have learned so you won’t have to go beating your head up against the wall for years to come.
Isaiah 8:19-20 And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
God is on the throne and tells us clearly that we are to consult Him. I had already tried the psychics, the Magic Eight Ball, the Ouija board. My life was a mess and I needed someone to fix it, so my only choice left was God. I figured that if He was really real, He was going to have to help me. I was going to find out if He was real for myself. I did and He is. If you really stop to think about it, there are a lot of people who don’t even believe in the afterlife, yet they consult people who talk to the dead. I find that a little weird.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
Now, we are not used to talking about God’s prophets. But we certainly are used to talking about fortune tellers, mediums and psychics. This is from a nation of people who predominately believe there is a God. The Word is exceedingly clear over and over that these people are from the devil and not to be consulted with. God is crystal clear on this matter. Prophets are the people (men and women) who are raised up by God to deliver messages from God to His children. I have discovered that God does nothing without the witness of two or three. When two or three prophets are basically saying the same thing, you need to listen to them because God is trying to tell His children something. They can be anyone God chooses. God spoke through a donkey one time, so don’t think He won’t use anyone He wants (Numbers 22:28).
People say they are going to expose false prophets. How can you be certain? Prophets will never deny Jesus Christ as the way, the truth and the life and they will never deny He is the Son of the living God. Period. If it doesn’t point the way to Jesus Christ, forget about it! (As the song goes). Don’t let people con you into a fluffy kind of thinking about how to get your life squared away.
Leviticus 20:27 “A man or a woman who is a medium, or who has familiar spirits, shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be upon them.”
Any type of medium, psychic, or fortune teller is coming straight from the pit of hell and we are not to delve in them. What I find most is that many people have no clue what is in the Word of God. Our Father in Heaven, our God never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Just because He sent Christ to take away our sins, does not negate the law. There are things that God is immovable on. He knows what is best for us. He will give you the answers you need, make certain you know how to fight the devil in your lives and He will be your rear guard. You don’t need Satan. Believe me, all that glitters is not gold and it is not all good. The bottom line of it all is that one force is coming from the darkness and one force isn’t. How will you know?
The closing of this letter is best said right from the Word of God.
2 Corinthians 11: 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
People are rising up saying all sorts of things that can give us false hope.The only protection we will all have in the days ahead of us is to KNOW, not think, what is in the Word of God. It is spelled out clearly. How will you know what is coming from Heaven and what is coming from Hell? Jesus says that His sheep will hear His voice. The question to you today is can one voice make a difference? YES. Be wise though because it won't be the voice of a fortune teller, psychic or medium.
And by the way, if you are looking for a fortune talk to the greatest financier there ever was...God.
