Divination can be defined as trying to learn the future by using supernatural means. It may sound like an ancient practice that is no longer used, but the truth is that it is still commonly used by people every day. Anytime a person calls a psychic, visits a fortuneteller, gets their palm read, reads a horoscope, consults angel cards or tarot cards, uses numerology or tries to learn the future by using any supernatural means, they are guilty of divination.
Deuteronomy 18:9-15 tells us these practices are detestable to the Lord. In fact, the Lord says the nations that were driven out for their wickedness practiced divination. Whether you use divination for good or evil makes no difference. The supernatural means to receive future information is not given by God. There is no energy in the universe whereby people may gain wisdom. There is only God and His angels versus Satan and his demons.
Christians make their appeals directly to God by prayer. He is the One who dispatches His angels. We have no business calling on them just as the US President has no right to call on British troops. They only respond to their own leader’s commands. When humans try to foretell the future by summoning God’s angels or energy, they are actually summoning Satan’s demons who are willing to do their bidding for a price. You will never know that price until you have paid it, and the practice of divination will be driving you further from the God who loves you so let’s turn and repent with the below prayer.
Lord, I confess I have practiced divination. Forgive me for this sin. I break off any communication with any entities besides You, Lord. I will remain faithful to You in my heart, soul, and mind. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
