Dear Jil, your mum keeps seeking the opinion of fortune tellers to “examine” the suitability of your prospects. That she’s torpedoed two wonderful relationships you’ve had in the last 5 years should ordinarily say something. And now you’re 30 and still unmarried, despite your attractiveness. No thanks to your mum’s veto capacity.
Your biological clock is ticking and you’re afraid of bringing another prospect home to meet your parents. You know she’s going to confabulate with her spiritual consultants and the chances of another veto are high. May God help you! You are miserable enough as it is.
Your mum is a firm believer in the art of divination and she’s dragged your life into spiritism. That’s a very dangerous world. You shouldn’t allow anyone to subject your life to those forces. Your mum is exercising an inordinate franchise over your life and if you’re smart you’ll take back control. She’s not going to stop consulting these diviners. It’s her belief system. She’s regulated her life by it for years.
But should you allow your life to be subjected to the predisposition of deceitful and wicked demons? And isn’t it strange they have no recommendations on who you should marry, only veto power? Isn’t it obvious there’s high level deceit at play here? That these guys are going to ruin your life? Plot the graph. At this rate by 40 you’ll still be unmarried, if you keep allowing these spirit guides to determine your life. These guys will so mess you up you’ll be clinically depressed – full of remorse and regrets. They’re brewing hatred in you, want to destroy your family. These are wicked demons. I think it’s time you thank your mum for all her efforts. Such efforts are better redirected.
You see, at the end of the day it’s your life. You can’t hold your mum responsible even if she is. You’ve allowed yourself to be sucked into the world of demonism, your fate decided by ineffable cacodemonic forces. You’re 30 for heaven’s sake! When are you going to assume responsibility over your life?! That your mum means well is obvious, but the road to hell is often paved with good intentions they say.
There’s a lot of deceit in the world your mum has taken you into. She’s dealing with spiritual intelligences. They have data on everyone born. Just like you have an earth register of births so do they. It’s why the astrologer always asks for your date, place and hour of birth. It’s to locate your “file”. These guys are statisticians. They can plot graphs, create life models and use these for predictive purposes.
And you know how they got your mum? They told her something nobody could ever know. She doesn’t know they have terabytes of data on her. They run an intelligence network like any other government. They tell you half truth, half lie expecting you to believe the other half. Just why do you think it’s called deceit?
Don’t allow your mum’s predisposition to spiritism to ruin your life. You’ll be bitter and full of regrets. You’ll always wonder what could have been had you married one of those wonderful young men she threw away. And she’s being selfish. She doesn’t want you to leave home. Or why doesn’t she recommend suitors! Some mothers can be like that. And some want to live their unrealised potential through their children. It is an exercise of colonial authority over another person’s life. It’s vicarious living.
At some point a parent must learn to let go. Beyond that point problems are manufactured. You don’t need spiritual consultants. You don’t need a “prophet” divining for you. You have access to God yourself. That something is supernatural doesn’t mean it’s of God. Lucifer is supernatural. And the Bible condemns divination in the strongest of terms. God wants you to come to him directly, not go through middle men. You don’t need so called “prophets” and “pastors” and diviners predicting your future. That’s an antiquated structure.
There are two governance regimes regulating the relationship between Heaven and Earth. The two regimes are what we popularly call the Old Testament and New Testament. “Testament” is simply the ancient term for “social contract”. It contains terms of political engagement. These regimes govern the Earth irrespective of our religious mindset or belief. They’re political not religious. The idea of consulting prophets belongs to the old regime – the Old Testament. It’s not a New Testament regime.
In the New Testament, we have direct access to God. No need for middlemen. At this time in the history of mankind God has cut out the middle man. And even in the old regime these spiritual consultants of your mum won’t even qualify. They belong to the other camp.
By the same token, stop consulting horoscopes and the like. God takes serious exception to these things. Even under the old regime it was banned. God has always been consistent in his opposition to them: “Don’t practice divination, sorcery, fortune-telling, witchery, casting spells, holding seances, or channeling with the dead. People who do these things are an abomination to God.” Deuteronomy 18:10-9 MSG. “When people tell you, “Try out the fortune-tellers, consult the spiritualists, why not tap into the spirit-world, get in touch with the dead?” Tell them, “No, we’e going to study the Scriptures.” Isaiah 8:19-22 MSG. And the job of a pastor is not to tell you who or who not to marry. Though he can counsel you. Your choice of marriage partner is your responsibility. If you allow others to choose a marriage partner for you, you’ll still bear responsibility. Even if you can blame others for your choice, it doesn’t take away from the anguish you’ll experience if wrong choice.
You know what you want; you know what you desire in a spouse. No one can know that like you. Except God. Why not just sit down with that God and have a frank discussion about that guy you like?
