From time immemorial men have been heeding the oracular statements of spirits speaking through mediums. And at their command, men have burned their own children to death, spilled the blood of millions and taken their own lives, that is, committed suicide. The Bible unmasks the practice of mediumship in the following passages:
"And when they say to you, 'Consult the mediums and the wizards who whisper and mutter,' should not a people consult their God?" (Isa. 8:19)
"Do not turn to mediums and wizards; do not seek them out, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God." (Lev. 19:31)
Judy Zebra Knight is a modern day medium and she claims to be in contact with Ramtha, a Lemurean warrior who fought the residents of the mythical Atlantis 35,000 years ago. (CNN: Apocalyptic Prediction Could Spark Mass Suicide)
The deadly spell-binding power working through her is extensive. Here in the United States alone, Ramtha--- speaking through Knight--- has thousands of mesmerized believers to whom his apocalyptic message has been delivered.
Jean Houston is another contemporary medium whose influence has reached even into the White House as spiritual adviser to Hillary Clinton. Houston has delivered her spirit teachings, prophecies and prognostications at more than 1,000 colleges, universities, schools, churches, hospitals, mental health agencies, corporations (i.e., General Electric, Shell Oil, General Motors, Xerox, IBM) in the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, and Asia. She has been a featured speaker for many major academic, scientific and government meetings which she describes as symposiums for policy makers and UN conferences. Houston has also conducted workshops for the Carter, Reagan and Bush administrations. (Jean Houston: Profile of the New Age Advisor to Hillary Clinton, SCP Journal 22:2-22:3, p. 66)
Houston and Judy Knight are but two of thousands of mediums delivering their false propecies, advice and prognostications at every level of Western society, even unto the highest corridors of power with live spirit channelings held on a regular basis at the United Nations. Consequently, legions of entranced listeners have fallen under the influence and power of unholy spirits.
For millions of post-Christian Westerners, Biblical faith is no longer an option. Instead, Westerners have eagerly embraced humanism's new mythology, a heady mixture of science fiction, propaganda, modern evolutionary science, a circular view of time (i.e., reincarnation, eternal return), occultism and revelations from spirits. Its prophets, visionaries, wizards and mediums are the shapers of mankindâ€™s conception of not only themselves but of the future.
The new mythology provides itsâ€™ followers with a fascinating conviction that a vastly different, enormously exciting New Age populated by a New Man lies just ahead. It consistently pictures the New Man as a technologically, psychotechnologically and biologically enhanced New Man, a quasi divine immortal possessed of super power.
For thousands of spellbound believers, the present world must be purged of orthodox Christians and faithful Jews in order that the New Age may arrive while for others suicide is the gateway to the infernally seductive New Age. Linda
