Whether a person actually participates in the occult (i.e. vampirism, witchcraft, etc) or just listens to or watches it on television, the evil influence is the same – and this evil influence is spiritually damaging to the Christians who watch it.The Lilith spirit, for example, is believed by some who worship her to also be the daughter of the vampire.Very important, see my documents on ‘Lilith’.What about the television program “The Munster’s”?Have you ever wondered why grandpa who was a vampire on the show had a daughter named ‘Lily’?Any person having the name ‘Lilith’, ‘Lily’, or ‘Lili’, does not mean that they, or their name is evil.This teaching refers only to the ‘Lilith’ directly connected to the Jewish myth, or to vampirism [another of Lilith’s personas], and is no reflection on a person’s given name. You may think it is just a coincidence that the writers of “The Munster’s” used this particular name but even if they did not realize it, the inspiration behind the useof that name was evil.You may have thought the show was only entertainment, but the inspiration behind the show is evil in meaning and appearance.The Bible tells us to “abstain from all appearance of evil”!I Thessalonians 5:22:Abstain from all appearance of evil.In the Thesaurus under ‘demons’ it places both the Vampire and Frankenstein in the same category as the succubi and incubi spirits.In the generation of the 60’s and 70’s when shows like the Munster’s and Bewitched came out people just thought it was only harmless entertainment, saying they knew it was not real – or was it?Even the show ‘Bewitched’ promoted Wicca, or white witchcraft, which is a very popular and growing religion in these last days.Yes, believe it or not Wicca is now a legally recognized religion!Like the Munster’s, the writers of Bewitched may not have realized they were writing under the inspiration of evil spirits, but scripture reveals that Satan was behind this show also.Today Bewitched has seen a revival in the movie theatres! Acts 8:9, 11:But there was a certain man called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one.I Samuel 28:7 even tells us that Saul went to seek a woman having a familiar spirit (a witch), and it eventually cost him his life.I Samuel 28:7:Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her.And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.I Chronicles 10:13:So Saul dies 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; And enquired not of the Lord:therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.Also see Deuteronomy 18:10-11 and Isaiah 8:19.Note:The Hebrew word for ‘spirit’ in I Samuel 28:7 and I Chronicles 10:13 is “owb, obe; …a mumble …skin (from its hollow sound); hence, a necromancer (ventriloquist, as speaking from a jar)… bottle… familiar spirit”.Owb, obe is also the same Hebrew word for ‘spirit’ in Isaiah 29:4:And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust. (Isaiah 29:4 accurately describes the voice of ventriloquism!For more information about ventriloquism see my document on ‘ventriloquism’.)
Scripture in I Samuel 28:7 tells us the name of the place, Endor, where she (the one having a familiar spirit) was found.I Samuel 28:7:Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her.And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.What was Samantha’s mother’s name on the show Bewitched?Her name was Endora and she was portrayed as a witch!Although the writers may not have been aware of this you can be assured that Satan was.Scripture also proves that even the name of the show Bewitched was inspired by evil spirits.Acts 8:9, 11:But there was a certain man called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one.And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.Galatians 3:1:O’ foolish Galatians who hath bewitched you that he should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you.The Greek word ‘bewitched’ in Acts 8:9, 11 is “existemi, ex-is’-tay-mee; …out of wits… insane… be beside self (selves)”.The Greek word ‘bewitched’ in Galatians 3:1 is “baskaino, bas-kah’-ee-no; …to malign” [which means to cause harm or pain]… “to fascinate (by false representations)”.Notice also that the name Samantha sounds strikingly similar to the place the people were at in Acts 8:9 – which was Samaria.
Scripture strictly forbids us to have anything to do with witchcraft; yet, we watch it and try to believe we are not participating in witchcraft. Deuteronomy 18:9-12: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.There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, and that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.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.Leviticus 19:31:Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.Leviticus 20:6, 27: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.A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death:they shall stone them with stones:their blood shall be upon them.Isaiah 8:19:And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter:should not a people seek unto their God?for the living to the dead.Isaiah 8:19 New Living Translation reads: So why are you trying to find out the future by consulting mediums and psychics?Do not listen to their whisperings and mutterings.Can the living find out the future from the dead?Why not ask your God?I Chronicles 10:13:So Saul dies 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; And enquired not of the Lord:therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.Isaiah 19:3:And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof:and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to wizards.Jeremiah 27:9:Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers…I John 4:1-3:Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God:because many false prophets are gone out into the world.Hereby know ye the Spirit of God:Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.The same evil spirits that are behind the show Bewitched, and other shows like it, are seducing our mind – just by our own willingness to watch these shows. Satan is leading us and our children astray, yet we call it entertainment! Psalm 101:3:I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.By allowing our children to look at, and participate in, evil seducing entertainment we are passing our children through the evil spiritual fire. Ezekiel 18:10: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.Was our generation just a steppingstone for the immense popularity of witchcraft today? The answer is yes! Just look in a dictionary thesaurus under ‘demon’ and you will find that most of the names listed are our children’s favorite cartoon characters. And we wonder why we cannot control our children and why they seem to be further away from God than ever in these last days…is it starting to make sense now?
An additional note:Today there is a popular children’s movie that portrays a boy who has a lightning bolt on his forehead, wonder who he symbolizes!?Scripture tells us that Satan fell like lightning from heaven in Luke 10:18:And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.I think we already know the answer!
