In a culture that is losing its biblical values and morals day by day, it’s not surprising to see more and more people turning to such occult things as mediums, séances and fortune tellers. Eastern mysticism with its spirit guides has also become increasingly popular. Many people are also claiming to discover their past lives as they believe in some form of reincarnation.
It’s also not surprising to hear about some television or Hollywood star that is being led by a spirit guide or talking to some famous star long dead. But when one of the nation’s most important and visible leaders starts talking to dead people, it has to make you wonder about their sanity or just how far they have been tempted by evil.
Case in point is U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. For several years now, Clinton claims to have regular conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt who died in New York City in November of 1962. Eleanor was the wife (and cousin) of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. They were both active members of progressive socialism, so it is no wonder that Hillary picked her of all dead people to talk to.
It’s no secret that Hillary regularly converses with the spirit of Eleanor, as mentioned by Bill Clinton in a speech last week in New York City commemorating the Franklin D Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park.
But I caution placing any stock in such things mainly because Scripture clearly warns us against using medians or calling up the spirits of the dead. Leviticus 18 and 20 give us God’s warning about using mediums and necromancers. In Leviticus 20:27 God told the Israelites that any man or woman who is a medium or necromancer should be stoned to death and their blood would be on their own hands.
Mind you, conjuring up the spirits of the dead is real and does happen. In 1 Samuel 28 we read where King Saul of Israel went to the witch or medium of En-dor and summoned up the spirit of the prophet Samuel. Saul was condemned for his actions and eventually lost his throne, kingdom and life because he failed to obey God’s laws.
It’s scary enough to see our nation’s leaders approving of the abominable lifestyle of homosexuality, (also punishable by death according to God), but to also hear of them conjuring up spirits and talking to dead people adds to the sins of the nation. I know we are currently under God’s judgment as all you have to do is read Romans 1:18-31.
What I don’t know is when that judgment will turn to wrath. When God brings His wrath down on a nation, everyone, even the righteous, will suffer. Look what happened to Daniel when God brought His wrath down on Israel and sent them into bondage. No one could have been more faithful than Daniel, but he was still taken hostage and turned into a slave. He was cast into a lions’ den, a pit of fire and who knows what else. His extreme faith saved him, but I wonder if your faith is as strong as Daniel’s?
I’ve never been afraid of the threat of nuclear war. I always said I wanted to be at ground zero when it happened so that I would be immediately taken up into Glory. But what does scare me is having to suffer through God’s wrath when it comes pouring down on our nation for turning our backs on Him and blatantly defying His ways and decrees. There is no escape from God’s wrath other than death itself and I hope and pray that I do die rather than have to live through what He has in store for our land.
Hillary talks to dead people and Obama dances around the golden calf. Surely our destruction must be ever so near!
