Satan is up to some very nasty things in these last days. We'll start by saying that the occult is an abomination to God. The God of the Bible hates the occult and years ago when He ruled Israel, such practices earned the death penalty.

See the below verses:

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. Exodus 22:18

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. Leviticus 20:27

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. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 20:6-7

HP.jpg (4412 bytes)As you can see above in historical days in Israel's past, it was a criminal offense to be involved in any way with the occult. The above verses are commands given from God to His people. God's attitude toward the occult can be clearly seen. Quite simply, He does not like the occult. In fact God likens it to spiritual harlotry. Men have a choice. They can either believe and trust in God or they can reject God and in effect, accept the devil and his ways. Harry Potter is for those who have rejected God and have accepted the devil and his ways. The occult with all the spells, wizards, and psychic powers is part of the devil and his ways. I'll start early in this tract by stating very clearly that occult books like Harry Potter are nothing but a gross sin and an abomination against God. People who reject God get very close to the devil. Harry Potter is great for those who reject God. People who want nothing to do with Jesus, salvation, eternal life, and heaven, have a great interest in Satan's wizards and spell casting. Hence, Harry Potter has a place in those peoples lives. If you, reader, approve of Harry Potter and even let your children read that Satanic filth, then you are on the devils side. You either choose God or you choose the devil. Those who accept Harry Potter with all the spells and wizardry are choosing the devil. It is as simple as that!

After making these truthful points, lets continue to look at Harry Potter: The series of occult books about a boy called Harry Potter is a great success (in the godless-worldly sense). Kids are reading the books and they are selling at an incredible pace. Lost people think it is great the children are so interested in reading Potter books. After all, parents want their children to be good at reading and it is a chore to encourage them in that direction. Then along comes Harry Potter. All of a sudden, there is a great interest in reading these occultic books. Lost parents are happy that their children are developing such an interest in books. After all, they rationalize, it is just about magic/spells/wizards and that is just harmless fun in a make-believe land. Is that really true? Is Harry Potter and his wizardry just harmless fun? Does God think Harry Potter books are harmless fun to be enjoyed by all? We will be addressing this throughout this tract. So the popularity of Harry Potter is very great now. Book 4 was released recently and there was midnight madness release sales to welcome the new book. People went to great lengths to get their hands on this book. This is very sad and is just another signpost showing our godless society before the return of Jesus. Let's look at a few pictures of Harry Potter. In this first picture notice the Satanic lightning bolt on the forehead of Potter.  See the Satanic lightning bolt. Yes, Harry Potter is part of the devil's plan. The occult may be candy-coated but it is very real and present in Harry Potter. People in the occult like to be associated with occult symbols. The Satanic ligntning bolt is associated with Harry Potter.  Next, look above as see what Potter is riding. Looks like he is riding a broom (symbol of witchcraft) to me. This is very natural for such an occult wizard as Harry Potter. Also notice the letter 'P' in Potter's name. It too has the Satanic lightning bolt on it. Also look at the white unicorn in the background. This is another symbol of the occult.  Finally, above we see the little wizard Harry Potter with his magic wand. Look at all the little flashes of stars in the air of occult POWER. That is the name of the game in the occult. Doing spells makes a person feel they have real power and control in this life. It is all a lie because it is demonic power which enslaves and destroys. Of course the Satanic lightning bolt is present in the 'P' of Potter. We saw that the Satanic 'S' in the form of a lightning bolt is used with Harry Potter. What does that symbol represent? Well it represents a lightning bolt that means "Destroyer". In mythology, it was the weapon of Zeus. It is worn to have power over others. Plus, this symbol was worn by the feared SS of Nazi Germany (who were also into Satanism). Finally the Satanic 'S' or the lightning bolt symbolizes Satan's fall from heaven. Here is the verse related to the Satanic lightning bolt and the fall of Satan: Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. It is only fitting that Harry Potter be shown with a Satanic lightning bolt. Satan loves to attach symbols to his own work. Just look at the rock and roll scene. There are all kinds of Satanic symbols such as upside down crosses, hexagrams, pentagrams, Satanic lightning bolts, and 666's. Harry Potter is marked in association with the Satanic lightning bolt. You see, Satan fell from heaven as lightning and the devil wishes to destroy in hell as many people as possible. Harry Potter is one of the many pathways to hell for those who live in rejection of the Lord Jesus. THE OCCULT IS AN ABOMINATION TO GOD! There is also very little said from within the Christian church about Harry Potter. True there are some who are trying to get the books banned from schools. But there certainly is not a great outcry against this latest fad in occultism. Why is this so? Never before has the occult been made so attractive and packaged so nicely. Children are being led, by a Satanic pied piper, into the occult.

The Bible clearly states that occultism is forbidden and it is an abomination to Him. See the following verse:

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, [or]
     - 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.
Deuteronomy 18:9-12

Hey, the above list covers the major story lines and adventures of Harry Potter. His books are filled with wizards and spell casting. Notice verse 12 above. God says that those people who do those things are committing an abomination against Him. That is a pretty strong warning isn't it? Those involved with the occultism in Harry Potter are committing an abomination against God. Does committing an abomination against God sound like 'harmless fun'? I think not! We are living in days where there is an occult explosion. We have fortune tellers with 1-900 numbers to occultic wizards and witches on Saturday morning cartoons. Everyone in society is exposed in some way to the occult. Only those who walk with God have the discernment to avoid and stay away from it. What about you reader, do you have the discernment or care to reject the occult? Take a moment and answer God right now in the heart of your hearts as He is very near. The above verses are pretty clear. The occult is an abomination to God. It is not a light thing to do and it is not harmless fun. Instead, it is an offense to God Almighty and all God's people will avoid such demonic trash.

Let's look at more verses to see God's attitude and judgment against the occult:

Moreover the [workers with] familiar spirits, and the wizards, and the images, and the idols, and all the abominations that were spied in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, did Josiah put away, that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD. II Kings 23:24

In the above verse Josiah 'put away' the fortune tellers and the wizards (spell casters etc). This means those who practiced the occult were removed from the land. They were kicked out and removed as a person would clean out his house of dirty garbage. By doing so King Josiah was obeying God. What about you reader, are you obeying God? Have you removed the occult from your house? Do you realize that if Harry Potter lived in the land of Israel in those days, King Josiah would have removed him from the land. Next, let's look at another example of the occult in Israel.

Read the verses below and see what wicked King Manasseh did:

Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hephzibah. And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name. And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke [him] to anger.
II Kings 21:1-6

King Manasseh was an evil King in Israel. What things did he do that was considered evil? Read the above closely. He got heavily involved in the occult and other such abominations to God. Doing all these things 'wrought much wickedness in the sight of the Lord'. Look at verse 6. Wicked King Manasseh did all the things that Harry Potter does and earned the anger and judgment of God as a result. That is an interesting thought. Do you think God is unaware of your occult involvement? Do you think He does not know that you allow your children to read occult/evil books like Harry Potter? Do you really think God is unaware of those who turn to the devil and his occultic abominations? Is it really 'harmless fun' to play with things God considers wickedness and an abomination? I say no! Expect a dramatic increase in the occult and demonic as we get closer to the second coming of the Lord Jesus. As godless men and women reject God they will embrace evil and the occult. It will soon be so widespread that occultic things will be considered normal everywhere. Just as sexual sin is considered normal these days... so will the occult. Keep in mind that all occultism is an abomination to God. God hates it and warns people to stay clear from this evil. It is impossible for a person to play around with the occult and leave unharmed. One cannot pick up demonic fire and not get burned!

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; I Timothy 4:1-2

In the last days before the return of the Lord Jesus many will give heed to the demonic. By rejecting God, many will accept the demonic. A person cannot be close to God and accept occultism at the same time. What should be done if you have occultic objects, toys, games, or Harry Potter books in your house? Simple... destroy them. Do not garage sell them or give them to someone else. No, destroy this Satanic trash and never again allow such filth into your house. This is a simple act of obedience for those who love God. (who may have gone astray)

Below is a Biblical example of people destroying the occult things in their homes:

Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. Acts 19:19

Above people destroyed their occult items and they were worth a large sum of money. I encourage you to purge your home today of all occult books, toys, games, and objects. God will judge those involved with the occult. It is not harmeless fun. Instead it is an abomination to God and it results in the judgment and anger of God. God's attitude toward the occult has not changed. When God ruled Israel by theocracy, it was a capital offence to be involved in the occult.

See the verses below:

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. In days past people who practiced witchcraft with all the spells and fortune telling were put to death. For God to make such a law shows His disapproval against this evil. Exodus 22:18

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. Leviticus 20:27

Again the death penalty for those who practice the occult. Little wizards like Harry Potter would have been given the death penalty in old days in Israel.

Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had lamented him, and buried him in Ramah, even in his own city. And Saul had put away those that had familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land.
Samuel 28:3

Saul had 'put away' the occultists out of the land. This means he kicked them out of Israel. It was a capital offence to practice the occult in those days. Granted, today we do not live under those laws so witches, wizards, and other occultists are not put to death or driven from the land. However, God will still judge those involved in the occult. One thing I can say for certain, is those who practice the occult will not go to heaven. What I said is very true. People who reject God just love the things of the devil. Below is a list of things greatly beloved by the devil and by lost people. Notice verse 21 clearly states those involved in the occult will not inherit the kingdom of God. That means they will perish forever in the lake of fire. It means they will not be going to heaven!

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:19-21

What more can be said than has been said in verse 21 above: "...that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." If you love and approve of the occult then be made aware of this fact now! You are on the devil's side. You are perishing and will not go to Heaven after this life is finished. WOE TO THOSE PROMOTING EVIL God is very aware that evil will come into this world. He has allowed men free choice to receive or reject Him. Those who reject God always accept the devil. These people then do and encourage the things that Satan would desire and approve. We clearly see this with the ungodly fornicators. Sodomites have been fighting for the right to be socially accepted and they have made it. Society has passed laws and gives benefits and 'normality' status to sodomites. Adultery and fornication are considered normal from all the godless people who have rejected God and the only Saviour, the Lord Jesus. The occult is also very popular with those who reject God. Again, God knows such evils will come into the world. However, He gives a 'woe' of judgment to those by whom these evils come.

See the following verses:

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Matthew 18:4-7

Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Luke 17:1-2

Are you reader encouraging and promoting evil? Does the above 'woe' apply to you as it certainly does with the author of the Harry Potter books? Get ready, in God's time judgment will certainly come! This is a very sad thought... how many Christian families let their children get involved with Pokemon or Harry Potter? How many church pastors allow Harry Potter into their assembly? One liberal-apostate 'Christian' magazine (Christianity Today) has articles on the web praising the Harry Potter books while dismissing the blatant occultism! Ecumenical apostates like Colson praise Harry Potter books and psycho-babble Ministries like Dobson have little to say against it. This is very sad indeed. Surely we are in the last days apostasy where we see people falling away from the foundations of the Christian faith. All that can be said is... come back soon Lord Jesus! The tares love all kinds of evil such as Harry Potter, rock and roll music in the churches, ecumenicism,  word-of-faith preachers, and all forms of liberalism and heresies. WHERE DO YOU STAND?

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. Psalms 1:1

Those who belong to and love God will remove occultism from their lives. They will not accept any occult book, game, or video into their homes. Those backslidden who repent will destroy all forms of the occult from their homes. What will you do reader? Whose side are you on? God's or the devil's?
