|The Occult Forest|
What if the occult is in the music that you listen to or the neighbor you are BBQing with this weekend? What if that sorority/fraternity or social club you are involved with actually has its roots in the occult? What if your friend has decided to join a secret society?
"I love that band and raise my hand in the sign of the I love Rock and Roll while I am banging my head, big deal, it's just a song."
"My neighbor has invited me down to the lodge, those are some really great fellows down there, I'm going to join to make friends."
"It's a Milton Bradley game for Christ's sake, what harm can a Ouija board do?"
Follow me for just a second, if you do an act, say punch somebody in the face but you do it while having fun, have you still punched that person in the face? If you are singing a prayer to Satan but don't mean it, haven't you still said the prayer? If your lodge has a ceremony that has it's roots in Dark Magic but you make a farce out of it, haven't you still done the ritual?
In a country that denies or minimizes the Supernatural the answer is still Ho Hum. We have become conditioned by the Humanist point of view that truth is what we believe it to be. If we don't believe these things have supernatural significance then they don't, but what if you are wrong? What if, as the Bible tells us, that the unseen is greater than the seen? (2 Cor 4:18) What if while you are joking around in your ceremony there are those hidden in another room who take what you are doing very seriously and are invoking curses and demons on your life?
There are rules and laws in the Supernatural and if you give the enemy permission to move into your life, he is going to accept the invitation and once he's in, don't expect him to behave. Don't expect because this was a joke in your eyes that it is a joke in his. Are you angry now for no reason? Has your baby daughter gotten sick? Has pornography begun to take hold in your life? Does Scripture make you cringe? These could all be signs you have an unwelcome visitor in your life. The Lord does nothing in secret, there should be no secret societies who serve the Risen Christ, yet Satan will always scheme in secrecy.
