What are Occults and its practices?

The dictionary defines occult as “hidden, secret and mysterious, particularly pertaining to the supernatural.” Some common manifestations of the occult include astrology, witchcraft, horoscopes, black magic, fortune-telling and clairvoyance. Occultism is defined as belief in or study of the action or influence of supernatural or supernormal powers. They appeal to our natural curiosity. Many who get involved in the occult begin with “harmless” practices such as astrology, playing with a Ouija board etc, out of simple curiosity. Many who have experimented this way have found themselves going deeper and deeper into the occult. Occult practices are controlled by demons, who offer just enough information to keep their victims intrigued, while exerting more and more control over gullible hearts and minds.The occult pratices and uses supernatural power or knowledge apart from Jesus Christ. Satan is the master deceiver and the occult is his domain. There are many Bible verses dealing with the occult. Leviticus 19:31 Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 18:9 When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the [a]abominations of those nations.
