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
The Bible is actually saying that don’t regard those that possess spirits to see into your past present and future. Don’t be moved by those who seem to know a lot about you, don’t let their words to set jittery into your heart even they themselves are not free; they lived their day to day life in lies. Those with the familiar spirit have capacity to know what you are suffering, they can discern when evil just hits you and they can relate your battles to substantial things or beings, such that you might have stop relating with some humans around you because you have been told that they are actually your problem. So we want to go into that scripture deeply Leviticus 19:31 The word started by saying Regard not them that have familiar spirits,… Don’t regard them, do as if you heard them not. No matter what they say to you; no matter how fiery ward-it off and regard them not. If you give heed to their sayings, it will destabilize you and you may have to dip your hands into iniquity. It also means that those possessed with familiar spirits always seeks to be regarded, they always seek to be your counsellor, your friend your close spiritual adviser, in other to leak the honey in your destiny by their evil spirits. Anybody that speaks to you and brought you into fear by words may be operating by familiar spirits, because they don’t exalt. So when you meet someone that unveils your history from the day you were born until present time; fear not, it’s one of those spirits. Some can tell you about your itinerary and secrets, you need not to give-in to fear.
If you are not word of God loaded and a word doer in the face of tough battles you might fall a victim of familiar spirits. It takes knowing God to disregard them. Paul and Silas was beaten, bound and thrown into the inner prison for doing these Acts 16:16-24
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: * The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. *And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of JesusChrist to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. *And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, *And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, *And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans. *And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. *And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely: *Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks. This also proved what is happening these days, people will continue to reject real people of God and go after familiar spirits. God was brought down into this matter and they were gallantly delivered
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. *And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. Acts 16:25-26
So many human want God’s divine intervention but they don’t want his nature of holiness which make it hard for them to receive what God Almighty have for them and some turn after familiar spirits for help.
Familiar Spirits: is not just a spirit but conglomeration of evil spirits operating in one person. They could be soothsayer, diviners, dreamer, strong conviction, strong influence spirits e.t.c familiar spirits can also be a spirit of whoredom/fornication, lying spirits, spirit of error and so on. The more you engaged with familiar spirits the more the devil has rights into your life and destiny. You shall not be caught in Jesus name.
…neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them:… The main difference between familiar spirits and wizardry (witches) though both are of the devil is that one influences the other invokes spirit to destroy. King Saul went after a woman of familiar spirits and the end of the story wasn’t a good one. 1Samuel 28:6-23 He was cursed again by bringing up the spirit of Prophet Samuel. Seeking after a familiar spirit is actually seeking after the devil for answers. Any man or woman on earth who is not powered-up by the Holyghost and performing spiritual feats is most likely under influences of familiar spirits. The Bible is very clear on this: I am the Lord your God. Don’t in anyway deviate from God Almighty to the devil the insignificant, an enemy. Jesus the door-way into every testimony any one may ever desire. God Almighty can get you out of that seemingly impossible life threaten situation of life now; if you let him.
FAMILIAR SPIRITS AND HOLY SPIRITS
They are twos that can’t co-exist. The Bible is clear about this Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. John 14:17
Familiar spirits makes you uncomfortable with their words and influences even if you are living in a comfortable house but when the HolySpirit reveals the truth (things) to you, it cancels your fear and strengthen your faith. Most of the time Familiar spirits can only tell you what’s happening with additional falsehood but can’t get you out. If you get a child from a familiar spirits or wizards, you will need to keep your eyes on the child, you will know the difference, and you won’t need to be told. Seeking after men of God is not wrong but seeking after people that does not enhance your knowledge of God but to enslave you (to themselves) should be ultimately avoided. Familiar spirits possess persons do place themselves at the centre of people’s life; you need to free yourself from their control. If you submit to the rules of familiar spirits; it will affect every aspects of your life and may be reproduce in your children. On the other hand if you are baptized in the Holyghost and submit to His leading then the Spirit of God will take the centre charge of your entire life.
It doesn’t matter wherever you find familiar spirits, Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.
Thanks for reasoning with me, remain ever blessed in Christ. If you want to make Heaven, Surrender your Life to Jesus Christ.
