Text:“And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?” - Isaiah 8:19.
To free themselves from the burdens of this world, many run to the devil and his agents, including demons, witches and wizards, charmers, necromancers, Those who seek help from secret societies, wizards and miracle workers are exposing themselves to deceptions of a most impudent and virulent kind: they end up being drained of their resources in addition to being dragged further into the pit, where they will eventually face bitter disappointment. If they appear to be getting any help at all, they are temporary and superficial as they are overshadowed by the depth of the bondage they soon find themselves in. The Bible charges us to rely on God Almighty at all times and not resort to the devil who only compounds people's troubles for he has been a liar and a murderer from the beginning. (John 8:44) When Saul found himself in a crisis and sought help from the witch of Endor, he ended up being deceived and he did not get help in any way. (1 Samuel 28:6; 1 Chronicles 10:13) When Ahaziah fell down from the upper chamber of his house, and sought help from Baalzebub the god of Ekron God Almighty told him through Elijah the Prophet that he would certainly die from the ailment. (2 Kings 1:1-18) We are hereby warned, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.” - Ephesians 5:11, 12.
