TOPIC: Do Not Consult Mediums, Witches And False Prophets (Scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 1 November 2020 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Father, please help me not to consult mediums, false prophets and other satanic channels.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leader should ask the members whether suicide is a Christian virtue.

MEMORY VERSE: Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God. – Leviticus 19:31.

BIBLE PASSAGE: Deuteronomy 18:9-14, Leviticus 20:6 (KJV)

Deuteronomy 18:9-14:
9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

Leviticus 20:6:
6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

TEXT REVIEW: Deuteronomy 18:9-14, Leviticus 20:6
i. Keep eye single solely on God

ii. The repercussion of neglecting God is unbearable.

INTRODUCTION:

God clearly warned in Deuteronomy 18:10-14 that it is contrary to His will that His children engage in any activity of the occult. The Bible teaches that spiritual guidance should be sought from God alone. We are to avoid anyone that practices divination or sorcery, interprets omen or anyone who is a medium because they have aligned themselves with supernatural forces that are not from God, but from Satan.

The final step in King Saul’s tragic downfall took place when he consulted a medium at Endor. 1 Chronicles 10:13-14 – “13 So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it; 14 And enquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.”

King Manasseh equally provoked God to anger by practicing sorcery and consulting mediums 2 Chronicles 33:6

LESSON OUTLINES: There is one lesson outline

THE BIBLE VERSES THAT ARE GIVEN TO US AS WARNINGS ARE:

  1. About mediums and spiritualist: Leviticus 19:31; 20:6, Isaiah 8:19.
  2. About divination or sorcery: Leviticus 19:26, Ezekiel 13:20, Zechariah 10:2, Malachi 3:5
  3. About false prophets: Mathew 7:15; 24:11 and 24, Mark 13:22, 1 John 4:1
  4. About idol worship: Exodus 20:4-5, Deuteronomy 4:15-18.
  5. About witches and wizards: Exodus 22:18, Leviticus 20:27, Deuteronomy 18:10-12

ACTIVITY:
What happened to those who consulted mediums in the Bible rather than waiting upon the Lord for instruction?

SUMMARY:
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:3.
This is God’s instruction.

CONCLUSION:
Every form of divination, whether from occult or natural objects, communication with the dead necromancy etc are all against what the Bible says in Exodus 20:3-5a. God commands absolute loyalty and doesn’t tolerate any involvement with other gods or spirits. He said in Exodus 20:5 that He is a jealous God. Therefore, for the direction you need in your life, turn instead to Jesus Christ. God has assured his children in Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

PRAYER POINTS:

  1. Thank God for sending Jesus to the world to put an end to the works of darkness.
