“Do not defile yourselves by turning to mediums or to those who consult the spirits of the dead. I am the LORD your God” (Leviticus 19.31 NLT).
God dwells in the spiritual realm – a realm more powerful than our physical world because it is eternal. Since God breathed the physical (3rd dimension) from the spiritual (4th dimension), our temporal lives are bound within the sphere of the eternal, like a womb encased in the mother’s womb. The spiritual realm is real, powerful and not to be taken lightly. Both good (God and the angels) and evil (Satan and the demons) dwell in the spiritual realm. As Christians, we are to receive spiritual insight from the Holy Spirit, Bible and prophets (God’s tried, tested and chosen Christian leaders). God commands His children implicitly not to consult, condone or connect with any other spiritual guides, resources or experiences. This indeed is a tall order in our culture today because many seemingly benign spiritual gateways have become so popular and accessible. Although there are many man-created spiritual doors available to walk through, Christians must not open them. Not all supernatural occurrences are of God, even if they seem useful at first. If we keep our eyes on God, He will unlock His supernatural authority in our lives when He chooses. Until then, we can find fresh insight from His Word, His Spirit and His chosen prophets.
“Someone may say to you, ‘Let’s ask the mediums and those who consult the spirits of the dead. With their whisperings and mutterings, they will tell us what to do.’ But shouldn’t people ask God for guidance? Should the living seek guidance from the dead?” (Isaiah 8.19 NLT).
