God Is A Dad Not A Stepdad

God is our father not a step-father. When he blesses us, he blesses us all the way not half-way or any other way. He is a God of hope, a God of peace, a God of light and a God who increase.

Today I discouraged a student from wanting to be a medium and play with spirits because we have a father in heaven who instructed us to be away from such pursuits. The Bible is clear about doing divination, spiritism and witchcraft.

“And he burned his son as an offering and used fortune-telling and omens and dealt with mediums and with necromancers. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger.” 2 Kings 21:6.

Stay away from fortune-telling, mediums, or anything that deals with the spiritual realm it ain’t good for you or me or anyone else. We are to follow the Lord’s commands not the cheap baits of the adversary.

“When you come into the land that the Lordyour God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 18:9-14.

Aren’t these instructions direct, to the point and easy to process? God teaches us the way so we can follow. It’s clear and in plain English. All we need to do is to follow! Glory be to God, always.
