Prophetic Movement – Fueled By Superstition

Human Tendency Toward Superstition Is Strong

Superstition goes way beyond black cats, broken mirrors, and Fri. the 13th.

The human tendency toward superstition is strong. We can all lean toward spiritualizing objects, behaviors, and beliefs without a concern for the person and will of God. We love our superstitions and the talismans that seem to protect us from the things we fear most. .https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/dont-be-a-superstitious-christian/

Charmed Christian Life

As followers of Christ, we aren’t immune to superstitions and talismans. Too many Christians fall prey to the temptation to use the good things of the Lord to control our fates apart from him.

I remember the talisman-like power I placed on the amount of time I spent reading the Scriptures in college. If I missed a morning session of Bible reading, I felt like anything bad that happened that day was caused by missing my ritual. I was less concerned with the sincerity and reverence of my behavior toward God than with checking off that box to ensure a good day for myself.

We can turn anything into pious superstition, even church attendance and participation. If I just show up Sunday morning or join the right ministry team, God will bless my life. Others might even join the church’s leadership, hoping that being a professional Christian will better ensure the blessings of God.

None of these activities is bad. In fact, they’re quite excellent and beneficial—unless they’re approached as acts of pious superstition.

Allure of Illusion

There’s a reason why believers can have a tendency toward superstition. The Christian life is often difficult and complex. Superstition boils down that complexity to a simple input-output equation. If I do my devotions, I’ll have a good day. If I have a rosary on my rearview mirror, I won’t crash my car.

Superstitions also give us the illusion of control. The world can be a terrifying place, full of awful days and car accidents, and God hasn’t promised to spare us from those things. So instead we turn to behaviors or talismans we believe will give us protection. As long as we do the right things, we think we can maintain some control over our lives, regardless of God’s plans for us. 

The Scriptures teach that any hope we find in talismans is a delusion. That goes even for the good things we use to supply us with false confidence (for some biblical examples, see the hypocritical fast in Isaiah 58, the Jerusalem temple in Jeremiah 7, and the practice of the Lord’s Supper in 1 Corinthians 11).

Identify Your Superstitions

It can be hard to see our own superstitions. What objects, behaviors, and beliefs give us a false sense of control over our lives? What good-luck charms and theological talismans relieve us of the burden of true belief?

Instead of relying on superstitions, our minds need to be renewed so we can rely fully on our sufficient God. As Paul writes:

Put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. (Eph 4:22–24)

The renewal of the mind has a way of destroying pious superstitions.

Daily Life of Trust – Not Luck or Fate

The Superstition Comic Strips | The Comic Strips

The rosary on the mirror protects you from car accidents without the hassle of active trust in Christ or the difficult work of learning what he’s teaching you in suffering. A rabbit’s foot promises luck without having to rely daily on the Lord. Even your deep and precise theological knowledge can be a talisman, giving you false assurance while you avoid grappling with the living and personal God who requires real repentance and faith.

In the gospel of Jesus Christ, we aren’t presented with a talisman or pious superstition; we’re presented with the person and work of God’s Son, who saves us from our sin-soaked lives.

We have faith in Christ not to make us lucky or to avoid all harm; we have faith in Christ because he is worthy. He is with us in our suffering, and he promises eternal life.

Superstitions may make us feel safe, but only Jesus can provide true, everlasting security.”

Omens, Divination, Superstition

‘Angel’ feathers positioned on the floor, indicating location and direction of approaching ministry action, affirmation of angelic presents (angels have no wings!)- gems and gold dust, God’s favour and manifest presents,- double-yoke eggs, a sign of future prosperity,- re-occurring numbers on the clock, significant message to observer,- license plate messages from God,- cloud formations,- weather patterns,- signs in the sky,- constellations, astrology – coins found, indicating change,- daily life circumstances, indicating omens – sports team outcomes,- football/Superbowl omenology! – Superstitions regarding daily actions and outcomes.

Prophetic Signs’, many times are simply superstitious omens.
Persisting in reading meaning, significance into these occurrences, will lead to divination.

What is an omen?

“Omens are signs that tell of an event to come, whether good or bad. For example, the superstitious see finding a penny heads up as an omen of good luck to come, or having a black cat cross your path as an omen of bad luck to come.

Omens are most often connected to superstition and are related to fortune-telling and divination. Simple superstitions are easily explained, such as breaking a mirror supposedly resulting in seven years’ bad luck. But those who believe strongly in omens might see a diviner to explain the omen or receive instruction on how to avoid the back luck on the way.” (a common ‘prophetic practice.)’
https://www.compellingtruth.org/what-is-an-omen.html

Deuteronomy 18:10–12: “There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD. And because of these abominations the LORD your God is driving them out before you.”

Superstition In Daily Circumstances – ‘Open Doors’

Lev.19:26 “You shall not interpret omens.
There’s a form of this that is common among Christians who go through life trying to read the will of God out of daily circumstances or events. You hear it in Christian jargon. We describe what appear to be favorable circumstances as “open doorsand try to feel at ease moving forward, assuring ourselves that the easier or clearer path must be what God intends for us. In fact, there’s nothing in Scripture that encourages us to do this. And besides, we’re never 100% sure we’re doing the right thing and often have the lingering fear that we are “out of God’s will” (which again is more jargon than theology). https://cpcissaquah.org/2013/…/12/omens-and-the-will-of-god/

Counterfeit Sanctification

https://www.gty.org/library/blog/B121022#!

“Sanctification isn’t easy—it takes faithfulness, hard work, and self-discipline. And even then, it’s not purely a function of your will, but the work of the Holy Spirit in you. It’s not manufactured overnight.

As with anything that takes time, effort, and patience, people are prone to look for shortcuts. Some people substitute a mystical, subjective feeling of closeness to God for actual spiritual growth. Others cling to outward expressions of godliness while sin still makes a home in their hearts.

But that’s not true spiritual growth—it’s counterfeit. If you truly love the Lord, you can’t be willing to move the goalposts on biblical sanctification.

There are many varieties of counterfeit sanctification. Some are easier to spot than others, but all lead to the same kind of spiritual shipwreck. Here are a few to be on the lookout for in your own life.

Moral virtue can often pass for true spiritual growth. Some people, for varying reasons, are fair minded, loyal, kind, conscientious, hardworking, and generous. They can make it through life without scandals and outrageous immorality.

But morality alone isn’t an accurate measure of a person’s spiritual condition. Moral virtue can exist apart from sanctification—even apart from salvation. You’ve probably known nonbelievers who hold to a high moral standard, perhaps even higher than some believers. But their virtue isn’t a substitute for saving faith. Outward morality doesn’t always equate to inward transformation. True spiritual growth isn’t just about good exteriors.

Another counterfeit of spiritual growth is religious superstition. Some believers methodically go through the motions of their daily Scripture reading, prayer times, and other practical spiritual disciplines as if the actions themselves merited God’s favor and blessing. You even see this attitude in little things, like praying before a meal. It becomes a mindless, empty ritual instead of an opportunity to express real thanks and praise to God.

The Catholic faith is built on exactly those kinds of superstitious rituals. But just as lighting candles, sprinkling holy water, praying the rosary, and confessing your sins to a priest don’t earn salvation, going through the motions of your Christian life—even fastidiously—cannot substitute for true spiritual growth.

True sanctification isn’t about outward morality, religious observance, restraint from sin, superficial holiness, or your feelings (1 Samuel 16:7). It’s about growing in Christlikeness in all aspects of your life. Anything less is a counterfeit.”

*>Daryl here: Counterfeit sanctification is practically the whole basis of the ‘prophetic movement,’ with it’s extra-Biblical ‘deeper’ revelation that poses as ‘maturity,’ ‘going deeper’ in God, all based on ‘gnosis’, – Gnosticism, special knowledge, (which we will see, is an earmark of divination and sorcery), a seed bed of superstition, supernatural encounters sought and embraced, as becoming more divine, one with divinity – counterfeit sanctification.

Another Word For Superstition Is “Idolatry”

https://www.gotquestions.org/superstitions.html

Superstition is based on the ignorant faith of an object having magical powers. Another word for superstition is “idolatry.” The Bible does not support the idea of things occurring by chance, but nothing is done outside of God’s sovereign control. Either He causes or allows everything in keeping with His divine plan (Acts 4:28Ephesians 1:10).

There are many types of superstitions in the world, ranging from the benign—such as not walking under a ladder—to the occult practices of astrology, black magic, divination, voodoo and sorcery. Scripture condemns those who practice astrology (Deuteronomy 4:19), magic, divination and sorcery (2 Kings 21:6Isaiah 2:6). Idolatry is also forbidden, and no one who practices it will enter the Kingdom of God (Revelation 21:27). These types of practices are extremely dangerous because they open the minds of the practitioners to the influence of the devil. First Peter 5:8 warns us to “be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”

We should get our faith not from objects or rituals of man-made origin, but from the one true God who gives eternal life. “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority” (Colossians 2:8-10).

What is superstition?

ahttps://theconversation.com/the-science-of-superstition-and-why-people-believe-in-the-unbelievable-97043

“Although there is no single definition of superstition, it generally means a belief in supernatural forces – such as fate – the desire to influence unpredictable factors and a need to resolve uncertainty. In this way then, individual beliefs and experiences drive superstitions, which explains why they are generally irrational and often defy current scientific wisdom.

Psychologists who have investigated what role superstitions play, have found that they derive from the assumption that a connection exists between co-occurring, non-related events. For instance, the notion that charms promote good luck, or protect you from bad luck.

For many people, engaging with superstitious behaviours provides a sense of control and reduces anxiety – which is why levels of superstition increase at times of stress and angst. This is particularly the case during times of economic crisis and social uncertainty – notably wars and conflicts. Indeed, Researchers have observed how in Germany between 1918 and 1940 measures of economic threat correlated directly with measures of superstition.

Touch wood

Superstitious beliefs have been shown to help promote a positive mental attitude. Although they can lead to irrational decisions, such as trusting in the merits of good luck and destiny rather than sound decision making.

Carrying charms, wearing certain clothes, visiting places associated with good fortune, preferring specific colours and using particular numbers are all elements of superstition. And although these behaviours and actions can appear trivial, for some people, they can often affect choices made in the real world.

Superstitions can also give rise to the notion that objects and places are cursed. Such as the Annabelle the Doll – who featured in The Conjuring and two other movies – and is said to be inhabited by the spirit of a dead girl. A more traditional illustration is the Curse of the Pharaohs, which is said to be cast upon any person who disturbs the mummy of an Ancient Egyptian person – especially a pharaoh.

Numbers themselves can also often be associated with curses. For example, the figure 666 in a licence plate is often featured in stories of misfortune. The most famous case was the numberplate “ARK 666Y”, which is believed to have caused mysterious vehicle fires and “bad vibes” for passengers.”

Sporting superstitions

“Superstition is also highly prevalent within sport – especially in highly competitive situations. Four out of five professional athletes report engaging with at least one superstitious behaviour prior to performance. Within sport, superstitions have been shown to reduce tension and provide a sense of control over unpredictable, chance factors.

Superstitions practices tend to vary across sports, but there are similarities. Within football, gymnastics and athletics, for example, competitors reported praying for success, checking appearance in mirror and dressing well to feel better prepared. Players and athletes also engage with personalised actions and behaviours – such as wearing lucky clothes, kit and charms.”

Propagating Superstition

https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/social-sciences/superstition

Superstition is so prevalent in China that because of it’s influence upon it’s society, laws have been created to dampen it’s affects.

Superstition generally refers to “a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation.”46 In China, it specifically refers to an irrational faith or a blind trust in such superstitious methods and phenomena as Feng Shui, fortune-telling, divination, astrology, and ghosts and gods. The nature of superstition lies in its followers’ irrationally abject attitude of mind towards such methods and phenomena. For the Chinese government, superstition may hinder the advancement of science and technology, incite its followers to break the law and disturb public order, and even cause damage to a person’s life and property. Any act of spreading superstition is thus prohibited by the government.”

Superstition At The Core Of Many Aberrancies

More on ‘prophetic’ superstitions here: https://scribalwell.wordpress.com/2020/02/26/over-the-edge-in-omens-prophetic-signs-2/

Looking at the subject of superstition & omens, and comparing them with ‘prophetic signs,’ they seem eerily similar, and are actually one and the same! Reading omens is practicing divination and being superstitious can bring a curse.

The ‘prophetic movement,’ is rife and rampant with omens and superstition, which can be seen when doing the comparison, and are addressed in Scripture as divination! Yes, the ‘prophetic movement’ has gone over the edge in omens, embracing yet another occult poison!

Yes, even superstitious beliefs about sports scores!

‘Football Omenology’

Over The Edge In Omens! – Prophetic Signs?

Many ethnic cultures and most false religions are founded upon superstition.

Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; 1Tim. 4:7

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. Col. 2:8

Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons. 1 Tim.4:1

“A superstition is defined as “1 a: a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation b: an irrational abject attitude of mind toward the supernatural, nature, or God resulting from superstition 2: a notion maintained despite evidence to the contrary” (Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition, page 1183). Superstitions are unsupported by facts. They originate in ignorance.

Oxford English dictionary – a belief that is unfounded or irrational.

Superstition means believing in things you have no evidence to believe in.

– An irrational belief that an object, action, or circumstance not logically related to a course of events influences its outcome. 2. a. A belief, practice, or rite irrationally maintained by ignorance of the laws of nature or by faith in magic or chance. b. A fearful or abject state of mind resulting from such ignorance or irrationality. c. Idolatry.”

False Conception Of Causation

The more I scrutinize the current, ‘mainstream prophetic movement’, the more I realize it truly is fueled by superstition. This statement identifies ‘prophetic’ aberrancies. – false conception of causation. Superstitious beliefs in feathers as signs, gold dust, gem stones, oil, similar to stigmata in Catholicism, (in Christian tradition) marks corresponding to those left on Jesus’ body by the Crucifixion, said to have been impressed by divine favor on the bodies of St. Francis of Assisi and others.) and supernatural bleeding etc. from statues. These are superstitious beliefs, holding to significance of meaning and messages from God, seen as, considered omens, anathematized by Scripture. Many many superstitious signs captivate ‘the prophetic movement.’

Interestingly, one article described superstition as idols, not only relating to actual physical idols worshipped by false religions, with superstitious beliefs about their idols, but relevant today as idols of superstition, superstitious beliefs and practices, attributing significance to objects, dates, repeated occurrences, unusual happenings, phenomena, places, geographic locations (mnts.) etc., all manner of superstitious beliefs. The nature of superstition lies in its followers’ irrationally abject attitude of mind towards such methods and phenomena.

Many Beliefs Themselves Are Superstitious

But reject irreverent, silly myths. 1 Tim. 4:7

Irreverent: # 952. bebélos -a threshold to enter a building”) – properly, improperunauthorized entry – literally, “crossing a threshold” which profanes because of improper entrance.

Silly: #3454 mýthos – a myth; a false account, yet posing to be the truth; a fabrication (fable) which subverts (replaces) what is actually true (old wives tales)

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental/spirits/forces/principles of the world, and not according to Christ. Col. 2:8

 Philosophy: #5385. philosophia – the love of and vain pursuit of wisdom, Jewish sophistry 

Deceit:#539 apátē – a false impression, made to deceive or cheat – i.e. deceit motivated by guile and treachery (trickery, fraud)

Elemental principles: #4747. stoicheion – elemental principles of the universe, Jewish tradition, minutely set forth by theosophists and false teachers, and fortified by specious argument,

Any belief, belief system, that is not corroborated by Scripture could be superstitious thinking.

‘Angelology’ Superstition In The ‘Prophetic’

“Understand that your angels exist to help pull out from you your potential, your God-given talents, gifts and abilities. Understand how to tap into messenger angels, who are available to help release revelation and enlightenment to you…Realize that angels are given by God to assist you in fulfilling your God-given destiny and purpose! Learn how to work with these divine warriors and watch heaven’s power transform your life, your region, and your world today!Tim Sheets & JD Hornbacher – ‘Ninja With Feathers’ (*children’s book adaptation of Sheets book ‘Angel Armies!)

Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you with speculation about what he has seen. Such a person is puffed up without basis by his unspiritual mind. Col. 2:18

Speculations: – ‘#1687. embateuó – enter, set foot on, intrude, pry into, taking…stand, to invade, make a hostile incursion into, to go into details b. to investigate, search into, scrutinize minutely = going into curious and subtle speculation about things which he has seen in visions granted him;’ This describes many, who are speculating, concerning the unseen realm = intruding into, scrutinizing minutely, curious and subtle speculation about things which he has seen in visions granted him;’ 

Superstitious Beliefs About Contacting The Dead

Then the spirit of the Egyptians will be emptied out from among them, and I will frustrate their plans, so that they will resort to idols and spirits of the dead, to mediums and spiritists.” Is.19:3

These demonic activities operate thro’ people’s superstitious beliefs about contacting the dead, when in reality it’s spirits counterfeiting the dead. How the ‘prophetic’ love to talk about their ‘encounters’ with the dead. (demonic apparitions operating thro’ superstitious beliefs.)

Specific Events/Occurrences – ‘Signs’ In The Sky

Specific events/occurrences/phenomena can have superstitious significance and meaning.

False prophets devote themselves to godless myths (superstitions) and the celebration of certain augured mythological dates.

The brief history of the New Apostolic Reformation is full of the celebration of mythological superstitious calendar dates.  The apostles and prophets of this movement have proven themselves to be false over and over again by their superstitions and alignment with New Age mythology.”

Superstitious applications of year dates, both ‘Western’ and Jewish, mimic mystical occult Kabbalah. Pagan, occult, New Age, world false religion’s sacred days are mimicked for times of ‘prophetic’ combat intercession, as well as sacred sites.

The superstitious mindsets of many in the ‘prophetic’ movement is astounding, mostly everything they do and think founded upon superstitious beliefs in some manner.

Someone once said, when Scripture is down played, superstition will ultimately rush in. The ‘dark ages’ bred a superstitious world. The modern ‘prophetic movement’ has once again bred a superstitious world.

When Scripture, orthodoxy, church history, are down played, man is subject to his humanity, subject to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, that love to play on the minds of men. When men break from Scripture as the inspired, inerrant, word of God, vain imaginations will prevail, giving heed to seducing spirits, a world without the revealed truth of Scripture, a world of superstitious imaginings.

Altho’ the Scriptures below primarily address the state of unbelievers, we are warned not to walk as they do “in the futility of their thinking,” for we will become alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in (us), due to the hardness of (our) hearts, darkened in (our) understanding, if we place exp. and extra-Biblical ‘revelation’ over the revealed truth of the Scriptures.

So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.They are darkened in their understanding and alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardness of their hearts. Eph. 4:17-18

We dishonour, and fail to glorify God, by dishourning His Word, becoming futile in (our) thinking, our foolish hearts darkened, exchanging the glory of God for images, thro’ superstitious imaginations.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and darkened in their foolish hearts. they claimed to be wise, they became fools,and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images of mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Rom. 1:21-23

Why Most Visions Are False-Mystical Superstition

Don Pirozok

In the Charismatic Movement so called prophets need to keep their names relevant before their audience. One of the best ways to keep people engaged is to dangle the carrot by saying; “I had a vision from God.” Usually the tone is, I spoke with angel, or I went into heaven, or Jesus came to me.” Why do modern Charismatic prophets attempt to lead the Church through visions, and visitations? We must come to see the gross danger where the whole Movement has chased the prophets who declare their visions are the voice of God. Where a real danger comes, in visions which are contrary to the Written Word of God.

One great example is in the formation of the Passion Translation Bible. Brian Simmons the apostle said Jesus took him into the library of heaven to commission Brian to rewrite Scriptures making them more impassioned. Brian also said Jesus Christ showed him a chapter of the Bible which has never been shown to any other man, John chapter 22. What’s wrong with this vision? Brian declares he is the only man in Church history Jesus told the Bible is not complete and will be revealed to Charismatics who are making the world Christian before Jesus Christ can return. Brian Simmons has said his subjective revelation a vision of Jesus, has become greater than what is already written for almost two thousand years in the Bible. With this belief in new and subjective revelation Brian rewrote the Scriptures changing thousands of words from the original document by adding or subtracting words. Brian rewrote the Bible to fit with the philosophical beliefs of ever changing and growing revelation of Scriptures.

What is astonishing about Simmons vision and rewriting of the Bible, virtually every apostle and prophet embraced Simmons practice as “authentic Holy Spirit work.” None has said to Brian and about the Passion Translation Bible this is a work of “Angels of Light,” evil spirits imitating God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. None who lead the Charismatic Movement exposed the Passion Translation Bible a demonic counterfeit, and Brian’s vision Satanic in nature.

What does it prove? Mystical experiences are often pronounced as visions from God. A Christian can develop a mystical mind which is open to sensuous experiences which are supernatural in nature.

Let’s just tell like it really is, those who think they are prophetic are given over to mysticism. They have open their minds the way New Agers and Occultist to encounter supernatural powers and experiences. These Charismatics need to “get visions or else their prophetic ministries are not producing.” Mystical minds are filled with all manner of sensuous impressions, as the prophetic people are always looking for signs, omens, numerology, angels, and visions from God. Any little thing which seduces them towards some mystical feeling, or sight, or vision of the mind, or external presence is always made to be a vision from God. Its easy for evil spirits to lead prophetic people who have sensuous mystical minds in counterfeit demonic visions. The whole of the Charismatic Movement which follows visions, and heavenly encounters is completely defiled with mysticism. To such a point high profile apostles and prophets teach there is not difference between the New Age, and Gods visions. These same apostles say Charismatics need to recover the New Age which has been stolen from the Church.

These men and women who lead the Charismatic Movement cannot discern the difference between New Age mysticism, and the true work of the Holy Spirit. What a grave danger!
