Familiar Spirits


Le 19:37 Therefore shall ye *observe all my statutes*, and ((all)) *my judgments*, and ((do them)): I the LORD.

De 18:9 When thou art come into the land ( Canaan- Possession, the kingdom of God) which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not *learn* to do after the *abominations* of those nations.

De 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*,

De 18:11 Or *a charmer*, or *a consulter* with familiar spirits<0178>, or a wizard<03049>, or a necromancer<01875> - <04191>. (“Enquire Death”)

1Sa 28:7 Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit<0178>, that I may go to her, and enquire <01875> of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that

hath a familiar spirit<0178> at Endor.

1Sa 28:8 And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and [two men] with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, *divine* unto me by the familiar spirit<0178>, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee.

1Sa 28:9 And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits<0178>, and the wizards<03049> out of the land: wherefore then layest thou [a snare] for my life, to cause me to die<04191>?

1Sa 28:10 And Saul sware to her by the LORD, saying, As the LORD liveth, there shall <no punishment> happen to thee for this thing.

Le 20:27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit<0178> or that is a wizard<03049>, shall surely <04191> be put to death <04191>: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.

Le 20:6 And [the soul] that turneth after such as have familiar spirits<0178>, and after wizards<03049>, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him

off from among his people.

1Ch 10:13 So Saul died <04191> for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking of a familiar spirit<0178>, to

enquire <01875> of it.

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

De 18:12 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.

2Ki 21:6 And he made his son pass through the fire, and *observed times*, and used *enchantments*, and dealt with familiar spirits<0178> and wizards<03049>: he wrought much ((wickedness)) in thesigh t of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

2Ch 33:6 And Manasseh caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also [he] *observed times*, and *used enchantments*, and *used witchcraft*, and dealt with a familiar spirit<0178>, and with wizards<03049>: he wrought much ((evil)) in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

2Pe 2:1 ¶ But there were ((false prophets)) also among the people, even as there shall be ((false teachers)) among you, who privily shall bring in <damnable heresies>, even <<denying the Lord>> that bought them, and bring upon themselves (((swift destruction))).

Eze 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

Eze 13:17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which *prophesy* out of their own heart<03820>; and prophesy thou against them,

Eze 14:5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart<03820>, because they are all estranged from me through *their idols*.

Jer 9:14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart<03820>, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:

Jer 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you ((a false vision)) and

((divination)), and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart <03820>.

Jer 18:12 And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our *own devices*, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.<03820>.

Ec 10:3 Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom <03820> faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.

Isa 47:10 For [thou] hast trusted in *thy wickedness*: thou hast said, None seeth me. *Thy wisdom* and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart<03820>, *I am*, and none

else beside me.

Eze 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto [the foolish prophets], that follow their *own spirit*, and have seen nothing!

Isa 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits<0178>, and unto wizards<03049> that peep <06850>, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the

living to the dead?

Isa 29: 1 ¶ Woe to(( Ariel)), to(( Ariel)), the city where David (Beloved) dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.

Isa 29:3 And [I will camp against thee] round about, and will [lay siege against thee] with a mount (kingdom), and I will raise forts against thee.

Isa 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 <06850> out of the dust.

Isa 29: 5 Moreover *the multitude of thy strangers* shall be like small *dust*, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as *chaff* that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.

Isa 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<0178>,

and to the wizards.<03049>.

1Jon 2:18 ¶ [Little children], it is the last time: and as ye have heard that *antichrist* shall come, even now are there *many antichrists*; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1Jon 4: 1 ¶ Beloved, believe not every *spirit*, but try *the spirits* whether they are of God: because many ((false prophets)) are gone out into the world.

1Jon 4: 2 Hereby know ye *the Spirit of God*: Every *spirit* that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come In the flesh is of God:

1Jon 4: 3 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.

2Jo 1:7 For many *deceivers* are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a <<deceiver and an antichrist>>.


It appears that God is equating Familiar spirits with the Church itself in tribulation.The Church seeks for counsel, wisdom, and understanding from the Church. A word of God from their ownspirit, heart, and mind, rather than from God himself. God allows the church and false prophets to destroy themselves by their own rebellion in turning to another god, idol, and familiar spirits for answers because God has removed himself from the church.
