The dangers of the Ouija board. Could it be a gateway to malevolent spirits? let’s find out! So an Ouija board is a board with letters A through Z and numbers zero through nine. There is a planchette that goes on top with a clear window, a window into the unknown. You call upon the spirits and ask questions like “so are you here?” or “Is someone with me right now?” and unfortunately what you’ve done is you’ve called the spirits to come and move this planchette to answer questions for you. You might not know what kind of spirit you’re going to get. It will most likely be a demonic spirit or a dark force. If it is someone who appears to be a loved one who has passed away, it is very likely that it is this demonic spirit posing as the loved one.
So you’ve opened the Gateway because of your faith and you said “come in”. Now that the gates open, you have to watch out for things like deception. You might have a familiar spirit who has seen you throughout your life giving you the confidence throughout the session by giving you answers that affirmed the things that are true to you, so you must watch out for those deceptions. Now that the gates are opened, there is the chance for hauntings to to appear. There have been cases where people have repeatedly had issues of poltergeist activity, and possibly demonic possession after an Ouija board.
Now of course there are times it doesn’t work at all and that very likely can mean that the person does not have faith in the Ouija board. Apparently how this works I can’t explain, but faith is required for it to work. There might be a case where a person’s can move their hands because of their subconscious, but that might be a smaller percentage of the cases, there are too many witnesses that have had events occur immediately resulting from the Ouija board. There are two main reasons the Ouija board is forbidden by followers of Jesus Christ, it’s not just because it’s a rule that Jesus makes up, it’s for our protection. Deuteronomy 18 10 through 12 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you.”.
So you’re doing two things that you shouldn’t do when you’re using a Ouija board. Number one, you’re contacting the dead. Number two, you’re seeking divining. You’re asking them about your future. put future in your hands, you have real power. Especially if you have it led by the Lord.
Now, warn kids before it’s too late. A lot of parents might wait until their child is 13 or 14 before even mentioning the Ouija board, I recommend at the age of 8 to start mentioning what it is. You might want to show photographs. by nine, they definitely should know what the Ouija board is.
As early as 10 many kids have started see started seeing it. It could be that they have an older sibling that introduces it to them. Girls in particular, because they are tuned to spiritual things, and they have so much fun at sleepovers, and try to spook each other, and say things like “I dare you to get the Ouija board. oohhhhhhh” I don’t know about you but I’ve certainly been to those slumber parties. There’s also other games like “light as a feather stiff as a board”, “Bloody Mary”. There are so many temptations to play these games because it’s spooky. Well what you have to do is you have to jump the gun and tell them about these things before it happens. Tell them “hey I’ll give you a reward if you call me to come pick you up if you’re friend mess with an ouija board”. Give them an incentive not to play. Explain why, if you explain it ahead of time, you’re going to have call their bluff beforehand.
Some spiritists claim there’s no harm in using the board if you know what you’re doing. Some feel all they need to do is receive protection from the four corners of the room by calling on the four angels. The truth is an angel that follows the Lord will not participate in these Ouija board sessions because it is forbidden. What might happen is you’re getting an angel that poses as an angel of light. Second Corinthians 11 14 “and no wonder or even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” Some spiritists reveal shocking private information proving that a lost soul is speaking through the board. Again that is the familiar spirit who may have seen you throughout your life, gathered some information and they can pose as a network. I believe they they do have some sort of possible telepathic ability, maybe technological ability, we can’t really say, but it is forbidden for a reason, for our protection. Don’t use it.
