With today being known as Halloween, I thought I would share with you the Scripture verses that deal with witchcraft, sorcery, and the calling up of spirits.  See for yourself how strongly God feels about these things.

Leviticus 19:31

Ye shall not regard them that work with spirits,

neither Soothsayers: ye shall not seek to them to be

defiled by them, I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 20:6

6 If any turn after such as work with spirits,

and after soothsayers to go a whoring after them,

then will I set my face against that person, and will

cut him off from among his people.

Leviticus 20:27

27 And if a man or woman have a spirit of

divination, or soothsaying in them, they shall die the

death: they shall stone them to death, their blood

shall be upon them.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12

10 Let none be found among you that maketh his

son or his daughter to go thorough the fire, or that

useth witchcraft, or a regarder of times, or a marker

of the flying of fowls, or a sorcerer,

11 Or a charmer, or that counseleth with spirits, or

a soothsayer, or that asketh counsel at the dead.

12 For all that do such things are abomination

unto the Lord, and because of these abominations

the Lord thy God doth cast them out before thee.

1 Samuel 28:1-15

1 Now at that time the Philistines assembled

their bands and army to fight with Israel: therefore

Achish said to David, Be sure, thou shalt go out

with me to the battle, thou, and thy men.

2 And David said to Achish, Surely thou shalt

know what thy servant can do. And Achish said to

David, Surely I will make thee keeper of mine head


3 (Samuel was then dead, and all Israel had

lamented him, and buried him in Ramah his own

city: and Saul had put away the sorcerers, and the

Soothsayers out of the land.)

4 Then the Philistines assembled themselves, and

came and pitched in Shunem: and Saul assembled

all Israel, and they pitched in Gilboa.

5 And when Saul saw the host of the Philistines,

he was afraid, and his heart was sore astonied.

6 Therefore Saul asked counsel of the Lord, and

the Lord answered him not, neither by dreams, nor

by Urim, nor yet by Prophets.

7  Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me

a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go

to her, and ask of her. And his servants said to him,

Behold, there is a woman at En Dor that hath a

familiar spirit.

8 Then Saul changed himself, and put on other

raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and

they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray

thee, conjecture unto me by the familiar spirit, and

bring me him up whom I shall name unto thee.

9 And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou

knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath destroyed

the sorcerers, and the soothsayers out of the land:

wherefore then seekest thou to take me in a snare

to cause me to die?

10 And Saul swore to her by the Lord, saying,

As the Lord liveth, no harm shall come to thee for

this thing.

11 Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up

unto thee? And he answered, Bring me up Samuel.

12 And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried

with a loud voice, and the woman spake to Saul, saying,

Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul.

13 And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for

what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul,

I saw gods ascending up out of the earth.

14 Then he said unto her, What fashion is he of?

And she answered, An old man cometh up lapped in

a mantel: and Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he

inclined his face to the ground, and bowed himself.

15  And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou

disquieted me, to bring me up? Then Saul answered,

I am in great distress: for the Philistines make war

against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth

me no more, neither by Prophets, neither

by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou

mayest tell me, what I shall do.

1 Chronicles 10:13

13 So Saul died for his transgression that he committed

against the Lord, even against the word of

the Lord which he kept not, and in that he sought

and asked counsel of a familiar spirit,

2 Chronicles 33:5-6

5 And he built altars for all the host of the heaven

in the two courts of the house of the Lord.

6 And he caused his sons to pass through the

fire in the valley of Ben-hinnom: he gave himself to

witchcraft and to charming, and to sorcery, and he used

them that had familiar spirits, and soothsayers: he did

very much evil in the sight of the Lord to anger him.

Isaiah 8:19

19 And when they shall say unto you, Inquire

at them that have a spirit of divination, and at the

soothsayers which whisper and murmur, Should

not a people inquire at their God? from the living

to the dead?

Micah 6:12

12 And I will cut off thine enchanters out of thine

hand: and thou shalt have no more soothsayers.

Nahum 3:4-7

4 Because of the multitude of the fornications

of the harlot that is beautiful, and is a mistress of

witchcraft, and selleth the people through her whoredom,

and the nations through her witchcrafts.

5 Behold, I come upon thee, saith the Lord of

hosts, and will discover thy skirts upon thy face,

and will show the nations thy filthiness, and the

kingdoms thy shame.

6 And I will cast filth upon thee, and make thee

vile, and will set thee as a gazing stock.

7 And it shall come to pass, that all they that look

upon thee, shall flee from thee, and say, Nineveh is

destroyed, who will have pity upon her? where shall

I seek comforters for thee?

Galatians 5:19-21

19 Moreover the works of the flesh are manifest,

which are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, wantonness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, debate, emulations,

wrath, contentions, seditions, heresies,

21 Envy, murders, drunkenness, gluttony, and

such like, whereof I tell you before, as I also have

told you before, that they which do such things, shall

not inherit the kingdom of God.
