When John the Baptist, saw The LORD, JESUS CHRIST approaching him, he said of HIM, in John 1:29
Behold!" The LAMB of GOD Who takes away the sin of the world!
[ John's reference of The LAMB of GOD, was pointing his listeners to the day that Moses instructed the children of Israel to apply the blood of an unblemished lamb to the doors of their homes.
In Exodus 12:12-13 The LORD gives us GOD'S agenda for that tike.
'For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgement: I AM The LORD.
Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are.
And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; And the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.
[With that said, and having a clear knowledge, that death, no longer has any power over us.
I say, "Happy PASSOVER, Beloved Brethren
For because, we Believe in the finished work of The Cross Of CHRIST, for the remission of sins;
no longer has any power over us."
And that's much more, than even a fortune teller can say!"
Yet, "before coming to know The LORD;
Did you ever go visit a Phsychic? Medium? Or a Tarot card, reader,
to learn about your future?"
Many people have!"
Do you remember a few years ago, a certain television show that was hosted by a self-proclaimed medium? A Phsychic?"
Do you remember?
The self proclaimed medium, supposedly received messages from spirits of the dead, in order to give to their family members. His readings prompted many people to believe in this occultic practice.
Yes, a practice, practiced, by those who are themselves, dead in trespasses and sins."
Even as we, Beloved, once were.
This is why Ephesians 2:1 gives us this WORD, saying:
And you HE made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
[But then, our "Super-Hero,"
JESUS CHRIST, gives us this WORD, from Ephesians 2:4-7 saying:
But GOD, Who is rich in MERCY, because of HIS GREAT LOVE with which HE LOVED us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with CHRIST (by GRACE you have been SAVED), and raised us up together in the Heavenly places in CHRIST JESUS, that in the ages to come HE might show the exceeding riches of HIS GRACE in HIS KINDNESS toward us in CHRIST JESUS.
In the future, we will know more of the exceeding riches of GOD’S GRACE, and enjoy more of HIS Kindness toward us, who are in CHRIST JESUS.'
But for now, we live in a culture where people are desperate to know their future, and they’ll turn to psychics and mediums for answers, even though that practice, is expressly forbidden in SCRIPTURE."
The ancient Israelites were desperate to know their future, and GOD knew that they would be tempted to consult mediums for answers. So HE warned them to stay away from mediums and those who contact the dead.
Leviticus 19:26 tells us about this warning:
'You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor shall you practice divination nor soothsaying.
[And through Leviticus 19:31 GOD continued HIS admonition by saying:
'Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits, do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I AM The LORD your GOD.
[And if that weren't enough, through Deuteronomy 18:9-12 HE gives us these clear marching orders, saying:
'When you come into the land which The LORD your GOD is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations.
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to The LORD, and because of these abominations The LORD your GOD drives them out from before you.
The LORD, our GOD, knew that these practices would prevent ancient Israel from being a HOLY, set-apart people, who would be a blessing to all nations.
You see, Israel's 🇮🇱 future was determined by their faithfulness to GOD’S WORD and covenant, not the words of soothsayers and psychics. Reliance on these evil practices indicated to GOD, a failure to trust HIS WORD with their lives.
So I plead with anyone who is desperate for information about their future, to turn to the sovereign GOD of HEAVEN.
For HE is The only One Who holds the answers we seek!"
Happy PASSOVER, Beloved Brethren!"
