The Absolute Truth About Satan and the Occult

In a prayer to the Heavenly Father, the Lord Jesus Christ said, "Thy word is truth" (John 17:17). The Bible is God's word, and is therefore the absolute truth. In John 8:31-32 Jesus said, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." We invite you to freedom. Look up the Bible verses referenced after the following statements, to see that the statements are true.

  1. There is a real, literal Satan (1 Pet. 5:8-9).
  2. God did not create Satan, but rather created a perfect archangel named Lucifer (Is. 14:12-20; Ez. 28:12-15).
  3. Lucifer and 1/3 of the angels of Heaven exercised their free wills to rebel against God, therefore falling from the exalted state in which God created them to became Satan and his demons (Rev. 12:1-13).
  4. Satan is not all-powerful like God, but is a colossal loser who must lie and deceive to retain influence (John 8:44; James 4:7).
  5. Witchcraft, sorcery (drug use), psychics, soothsayers, mediums, astrology, people with familiar spirits, horoscopes, wizards, enchantments, divination, fortune-tellers, and all other things connected with the occult are of Satan worship, and are strictly forbidden of God (Deut. 18:10-12; Ex. 22:18; Mic. 5:10-13; Is. 47:13-14; Is. 47:8-11; Lev. 19:31; ).
  6. Satan founded Humanism and all false religions (Gen. 3:4-5; John 8:43-45).
  7. It is foolish to follow Satan, for he is headed to the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10).
