While i was a teen in High school, there were many instances that I actually believed in Horoscopes. Most newspapers have columns, where there are horoscopes foretelling your future. This belief was incorporated from my friends, who used to read their months Horoscopes and due to the excitement that came with it, I simply followed the trend. This became a habit and on a daily basis, i used to read the horoscopes in our school Library and i literally believed what the article predicated about my future.
.After high school through collage this became a daily routine for me, to go through the Horoscopes and at least have a rough idea of how my future would unfold. Not reading my bible, i was ignorant of the tactics of the enemy and one of them was, i was relying on divination. So,one day while listening to a christian radio station, the presenters were sensitizing dangers of reading the Horoscopes and believing on what they said, than what God says over your life through His word.Wow!i was literally shocked, after i discovered i was playing with real fire by following these horoscopes and believing what they predicted over mylife, which displeased God, as per His word.
Truth be told, a lot of Christians are relying on divination to be a source of wise counsel , which is against God’s word for His people and they do not have a clear cut knowledge of it’s dangers.On this post i will share scriptures that reflect God’s truth in regards to astrology and any other form of divination.Prophet Hosea stated very well in Hosea 4:6 People are destroyed for lack of knowledge, it’s my desire you won’t be ignorant of the tactics of the enemy but you will be set free and share God’s truth, with other Christians who might be walking in this belief.
So what is divination?? Is to foresee” or “to be inspired by a god.” To practice divination is to uncover hidden knowledge by supernatural means. It is to be associated with the occult and involves fortune-telling or soothsaying, From ancient times, people have used divination to gain knowledge of the future or as a way to make money. The practice continues, as those who claim supernatural insight through palm reading, tea leaves, tarot cards, star charts, Horoscopes and any form of divination is a sin.
Trust me when I tell you, It is a harmful form of entertainment and an evil source of wisdom. Christians should avoid any practice related to divination, including fortune-telling, astrology, witchcraft, tarot cards, necromancy, and spell-casting.
