Occultism | thebereancall.org


Biblical prophets and Jesus Christ himself warned of a great spiritual delusion and occult seduction in a period of time called the "last days" just prior to Christ's return. The warning concerned "false prophets" who would perform "great signs and wonders" that would be so convincing that "if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect" (Matthew:24:24). Paul also warned of a false "signs and wonders" movement in the last days (2 Timothy:3:8). Significantly, nowhere in the Bible do we find a good or legitimate "signs and wonders" movement prophesied for the last days, nor even a hint that it would be needed or helpful.

But in fact, we are in the middle of an accelerating occult seduction of both the secular world and the church. A growing "signs and wonders" movement in the Christian church is literally exploding and is involving not only charismatics and Pentecostals but even evangelicals who only a few years ago were opposed to what they would have characterized at that time as fraud. Today, in spite of the warnings by both Jesus and Paul, there is scarcely any thought that today's signs and wonders might be part of the very spiritual deception that the Bible foretells.  —Dave Hunt,  Occult Invasion: The Subtle Seduction of the World and the Church
