Occultism- theory or practice : belief in or study of the action or influence of supernatural or super-normal powers (Witch Craft)
The last out of the 7 Strongman spirits is Occultism
Most people don’t understand Occultism. We think Occultism is just fortune-teller, horoscopes, doing tea readings, playing with Ouija boards or having séances (these all are apart of Witch Craft for sure) but Occultism is anything that offers itself as truth- in place of God- and it is not.
Occultism is a form of knowledge that offers itself as if it were the real thing. Occultism is also a form of power and a form of identity. Occultism is Fear and is based on the opposite of who God is and who you are in Him in truth, knowledge, position and identity. If you are fearful and afraid of everything, you have a spirit of Fear and Cultic thinking becomes your identity. Cultic thinking offers something that seems to be so real, yet it is counterfeit of the living God.
When there is Occultism in a person, there is no rest. There is no mental peace. There is no spiritual peace with themselves, or with God or with others. Where there is a leavened thought process, there is only torment and fear. That is a tremendous proof of the power of occult influence. We become a god unto ourselves, even in our own health. It is just another form of disease management. I consider most disease management to be occult in nature. Even though it seems to give relief, it does not give the solution. Everyone needs relief.
Occultism can become a religious artifact to create a form of godliness and to manage you spiritually. Occultism has to be broken in a person’s life in order for them to be totally healed. One of the Blocks to Healing is continued involvement in occult practices and mentality.
John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
I was a professed Athiest for 23yrs until Sept 18th 1997, the day I accepted Christ. Prior months leading up to this point I was searching for Love (as I discussed yesterday in Addictions) and I was searching for anwsers (TRUTH). So like some people I did Tarrot Card readings. I went to this lady who said this was a gift from god. Some of her readings we so on point (99% truth, 1% lie) is still a Lie!! You will be channelling for a God, whether it is the 1 True God, or the other gods. Who are you channelling for?
Occultism always takes away and divides. The Kingdom of God always adds or multiplies things that are good for you (Pastor Henry Wright, “A More Excellent Way”)
