The Road to the Occult  

THE REAL WORLD

The highest level is the Holy Bible. This book can prepare you for heaven.

Next to that are stories of great Christians and missionaries, along with stories of Christians who have been faithful in earlier centuries. These are always helpful. Reading them encourages you to want to live like them, true to God to the end.

The next level down is current events. Here we have the news of the day, much of which is worth learning about. Also included here is history, and scientific facts. (Not included here is evolutionary theory, which is a form of fantasy.)

THE FICTITIOUS WORLD

The next level down is fiction. The best type consists of books and articles which try to warn of spiritual dangers, and encourage you to live a better Christian life. The book you are now reading falls into this category. But this is not the best level of reading. God’s Word is.

Below this comes a variety of fiction which is bad for you. There are millions of books which belong here. Although the stories is generally set in the real world, they encourage you to like vicious, licentious, and all kinds of evil things.

People who read fiction find it harder to handle the duties and problems of everyday life with Christian patience and trust in God.

THE FANTASY WORLD

Now we drop still lower to the world of fantasy. These are stories about impossible things in make-believe worlds, inhabited by giants and gremlins, talking animals and strange creatures. This is an unreal world, and learning to like it is not good. The reading of fairy tales prepares you to for the next level down, which is witchcraft.

In this category, we find Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland, J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia.

Both in this category and the next, we find many of the Andersons’ and Grimes’ fairy tales, the Oz stories by Frank Baum,—which are about actual witchcraft.

THE SPIRIT WORLD

By the time a person reaches this level, he has learned to enjoy the things of witchcraft.

Here we find stories about witches, vampires, and other horrible creatures which, although imaginary, are actually the things used by spiritualists to frighten and catch you.

Anton Lavey’s Satanic Bible would fall into this category.

THE OCCULT WORLD

Now we come to books which actually instruct the reader in the details of witchcraft. These books do more than merely talk about witches, they explain in detail their training program and how they carry on their magick.

Here we find the actual instructional books for witches in training. Included here are J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. They provide entry-level instruction.

Although the Ordo Anno Mundi (OAM) Series contains instruction only somewhat in advance of the Rowling books,—yet they have complete witchcraft instructions! Thus, they are only a step above the Potter books!

Here is a comparative example:

OAM has seven degrees of “Magical Training,” and includes classes strikingly similar to those offered at Hogwarts, Harry Potter’s school.

OAM General Education primer: “Ancient Runes.” / Potter: “Those are my books for . . Divination, the Study of Ancient Runes” (Prisoner of Azkaban, p. 57, original edition).

OAM First Degree: “Divination.” / “We will be covering the basic methods of Divination this year” (Prisoner of Azkaban, p. 103).

OAM First Degree: “Spellcasting.” / “All students should have a copy of each of the following: The standard Book of Spells (Grade 1)(Sorcerer’s Stone, p. 66).

OAM Fourth Degree: “Animal Transformation (Transfiguration).” / “Transfiguration is some of the most complex and dangerous magic you will learn at Hogworts” (Sorcerer’s Stone, p. 134). “My transformations in those days were—were terrible. It is very painful to turn into a werewolf . . [My friends] could each turn into a differnt animal” (Prisoner of Azkaban, pp. 353-354).

OAM Fifth Degreee: Magical Lore” / “Their very last exam was History of Magic” (Sorcerer’s Stone, p. 263).

In addition, the Harry Potter books contain the most horrible horror stories about people being killed by Hogworts students, who laugh about it then and afterward.

In addition, there is profanity in the books. For example, in Book 4, you will find it on pp. 43, 62, 127, 232, 344, 470, 561, and 626. Such books should not be read by children nor by adults.  

SOLUTIONS

HOW TO AVOID:

Learn to recognize when a strong, unbiblical idea, impulse grips your mind. It may be a thought or lust. You are attracted to, begin craving to see, read, do something you should avoid. Watch out for the idea that there is some 'good' reason why you need to seek instruction or information from spiritists. Make no compromise; if there is anything good that you need, God can give it to you and it won't have strings attached that bind you to Satan!

  HOW TO RESIST:

Avoid entirely

Ignore it

Pray for help

Repeat Bible promises

Leave

Call on the name of Jesus

Get your friends out of there

Promise God to have nothing more to do with it

  HOW TO CONFRONT:

Prayer alone, or with several Christian believers

Confront in the name of Jesus

Move forward in opposing its spread, while praying for protection

Lesson in both: willing to consider, captured and think actually see it (also Faker and rope trick in India)

Demon possession and oppression is a reality. We have many accounts in the Bible of this:

Acts 16:  Demon possession

Acts 19: Books of magic - had to burn them!

Demon-possessed people - Throughout the Gospels and Acts.

 

OUR ONLY SAFETY:

Prayer

Studying the Bible

Obeying the Ten Commandments

Study Bible and pray for protection, guidance  

HOW TO GET RID OF IT:

Genuine conversion experience

Earnest prayer

Search every room, cleanse house of Satanic objects, cast them out of the house, smash or burn them.

Find every fairy tale book and burn it

Promise God to have nothing more to do with it

Destroy Satanic games . . videos, Ouija boards . .

Rededicate life to God

Plead for divine guidance, protection  

EARLIER FORMS:  

All the spiritualist things that we are deluged with these days were found before in the ancient pagan religions of sun worship and nature worship. 'Speaking in tongues', a condition where a person pours forth a flood of strange gibberish and thinks it is some kind of unknown language, was first seen in the worshippers of heathen 'oracles'. It is a form of hypnotic trance and has no place in true Christianity. The 'speaking in tongues' that was given by the Holy Spirit to the disciples was the ability to speak and understand languages they had not previously learned. We have seen this true gift occur in modern days in the mission fields of heathen countries.

DEMONS APPEAR AND INSTRUCT:

There are many people who were instructed by demon spirits to 'discover' the things they brought to public notice. Here are a few examples: Charles Darwin, it is known that on his famous voyage, he was initiated into South-American native witchcraft. His 'theories' followed this, and he was a depressed and tormented man the rest of his life.

Mesmer, Freud, Jung, Adler, Erickson and many who have brought to us 'psychiatric' theories and methods, were all spiritists of one form or other. 

Adolph Hitler, and many other tyrannical leaders received instruction from spiritist mediums whose guidance led to horrible happenings in this world.
