Necromancy is a practice of magic that involves communication with the dead. It is being practised globally today. God condemns necromancy in the Bible and He has reserved a great judgement for people involved in its practice. When communicating with the dead, familiar spirits are involved.
A familiar spirit is a demon that is summoned or called through a mediums (e.g a witch or wizard) with the intention that the spirit will obey his or her command. In a nutshell, necromancy is made possible with the assistance of familiar spirits. Let’s quickly examine some scriptures before I go further.
“Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits: Do not seek after them. To be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.”
Lev. 19:31 (NKJV)
The above scripture warns that we should not regard mediums (a person who can communicate with the spirit of dead people) and familiar spirits. It says that we should totally abstain from them because practising spiritism would defile us. Let’s also look at the book of Isaiah.
And when they shall say unto you, Seek those who are mediums and wizards who whisper and mutter, should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living?
IS. 8: 19 (NKJV)
The above scripture tells us not to listen to suggestions to practise spiritism and necromancy but rather, we should practice seeking the living God. We should not seek or look after the dead for any reason or gain. King Saul sought to practise necromancy and that very day, he got a curse which took his life and that of all his sons.
Some years back, an old lady told me that she had once consulted a necromancer when she needed direction on a matter and she wanted to speak to her dead mother about the matter. On getting to the necromancer, he called out the spirit of her dead mother and she could see her mother in a magic mirror. She said her mother told her what to do and that her voice was very clear as though she was alive. When I head her story, I shook my head and felt sad for her. Consulting the dead for assistance is a sin. Witches and warlocks who conjure familiar spirits to speak with the dead are in deep sin and those who patronize them are sinning as well. Those who are practising necromancy are inviting the wrath of God upon themselves.
If you practise necromancy, please stop it. God is not pleased with you.
The right time to stop practising necromancy is now. repent once and for all.
May the Lord increase you more and more and may you grow in faith and grace In Jesus name.
