OUIJA BOARDS: PORTALS LEADING TO PERDITION
(Part II of the article, SAY NO, NO to OUIJA)
By James Fire
Death: it is the thing that we mortals seem to fear the most; Hamlet pondered it, and thought about whether “to be or not to be, that is the question” – a Shakespearean query about suicide, yet was also apprehensive of what he would find in that “undiscovered country”.

Preface: Me…Lifetime member…10435911…Missouri Member At Large POST 15026 Veterans of Foreign Wars…Dennis Flynn/Doug are my VFW Reps St. Louis office who spearheaded my 100% disability claims and approved by the DOD and the Veteran’s Administration. Yep…in Nam…66-68…18 months DOCUMENTED and Agent Orange “poisoning” leading to my heart attacks. And yes I was told by my VFW office “my records” were not available and probably lost in a fire and therefore Emanuel Cleaver worked DIRECT with the DOD to verify not only I was in Nam but where and when etc just as I told them “when and where and with who”! I NOW decided to share that for any and all to see to again show I own the “Liar sent from Hell”! firstname.lastname@example.org for anyone to PROVE otherwise including Mr. “Every Orifis” Nazi Sodomite who promotes the raping of WOMEN and CHILDREN as done by his hero’s in the American Indian Movement!
Now to the fun part of exposing EVIL using one of Satan’s prize representatives in the realms of time. I realize that he is but one example but because he “volunteers” to be seen for who he is…and that Satan owns him!
WARNING…GRAPHIC LANGUAGE DUE TO THE VILE FILTH OF BILL BUNTING AND KAREN SUE ANDRAS
This is like teaching again using the example of and exposing Bill Bunting as the practicing Sodomite/Druid/Satanist, Anti-Christ spirit that he is and who does not believe in hell and willing shares his filth for all to see! If there was a spiritual brother of and proof of the existence of the Demon and Satan’s Chief of Staff Aleister Crowley in the realms of time, then Bill Bunting is “The Beast”!
Even as Crowley partook of feces on his “altar” through the act of sodomy in Crowley’s “Gnostic Mass” (See Below) allowing one to not only communicate with demons but more importantly the allowing for possession by the same as is the case with Bunting and his “new wife/whore” of many. Satan’s goal is to have them become one with Him as well as being possessed by him and his demons.
Buntings’ quotes show that he is “one ” with Satan himself as well as being totally possessed by him and his quotes “texted to me” confirm that without a doubt as well as the information I share below so that you can understand about who Bill Bunting is in spite of his “Confederate Hat”! He is representative of what has happened to this country and world through those “possessed by Satan” as he is. Even worse…is the direct connection to those like him who are raping murdering pedophiles of innocent children not only in this country but world wide.
Googling the Bunting name where he lives in Georgia and Florida and has lived are “sexual predators…sodomizing rapists” of children
My gut says NO WAY!
His new “wife” to be…”Karen Sue” (FB page) AKA Karen Sue Andras is going to bring this “Confederate Real Man” into the “Shelton Family” by “marriage” on April 22d…Oberlin OHIO! Included in the family are the two twin sons of her son who she will expose to Bunting who glorifies Crowley in all the filth he shares and lives with the “Grandmother” of these young boys. In fact, her testimony with me when married was that Crowley both appeared to her when young and spoke to her stating “I own you/or/You have what I want”! Then after we met…for the first time ever Crowley attacked her with the goal to have her out of my life. She called me and said he was “under her bed in Ohio (witnessed and heard by son and his wife), scratched her with marks on arms and legs and the most powerful experience being when next to me in bed where Crowley channeled/entered into her, freezing her, not being able to talk or move only to be delivered by her “thinking JESUS” in her mind.
The sexual darkness she is now “one with” with Satan’s son and Crowley’s “spirit guidance” Bill Bunting is what she apologized to me for when Crowley tried to make us one in his “death grip” of filth and hell and now the desires of her heart are granted by Jesus Christ with Bill Bunting. No more worries about Crowley now…because he does OWN HER through Bunting!
I ask anyone reading this…especially women who have been raped…women who have children…Would YOU want this man in your family or near your children? Read and learn about Bill Bunting and Karen Sue Andras and her family who LOVE who this man is and what he represents!
“Ummm…any woman raped by Russell Means or Bill Cosby should be grateful… I mean these are real men who should be able to take what they want from any woman they please… If she was a real woman she would be begging for more”- Bill “Mr. Explorer Of Every Orifis and Proud Confederate” – Bunting
Anyway… Time for some sodomy with my Goddess and future wife
“i enjoy open women and ones who f–k and orgasm because they know i love that about them…
…”the way i become her master and her slave as we explore every orifice and fulfill each sick twisted sex act known to man…”

THE REBELLION OF LUCIFER IN HEAVEN AS DEFINED IN TIME USING THE EXAMPLE OF BILL BUNTING AND KAREN SUE ANDRAS IN WHAT THEY PARTAKE OF AND GLORIFY WITH AND IN WHICH THE ABOVE QUOTES BY BUNTING DOCUMENT
Transgression contains nothing negative but affirms limited being— affirms the limitlessness into which it leaps as it opens this zone to existence for the first time.
MICHAEL FOUCAULT, “Preface to Transgression”
As Bataille uses the term, transgression is not simple hedonism or unrestrained sexual license; rather, its power lies in the dialectic, or “play” (le jeu), between taboo and transgression, through which one systematically constructs and then oversteps all laws. Perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than in the case of eroticism. Not a matter of simple nudity, eroticism arises in the dialectic of veiling and revealing, clothing and striptease, between the creation of sexual taboos and the exhilarating experience of overstepping them. So, too, in ecstatic mystical experience or religious rites (such as blood sacrifices, carnivals, etc.), one must first create an aura of purity and sanctity before one can defile it with violence, transgression, or the overturning of law. “The prohibition is there to be violated”; rules are made to be broken, for it is the experience of overstepping limits that brings the blissful sense of continuity and communion with the Absolute: (SAY SATAN)
[T]aboos . . . are not only there to be obeyed. … It is always a temptation to knock down a barrier. . . . Fear invests [the forbidden act] with an aura of excitement. “There is nothing,” writes de Sade, “that can set bounds to licentiousness. . . . The best way of enlarging and multiplying one’s desires is to try to limit them.”72
(For Bunting and Andras) …the ultimate aim of transgression, however, is not mere sensual pleasure; rather, it is the transgression of the very boundaries of the self, an expenditure (dépense) without hope of any return, which shatters the limits of finite human consciousness in order to experience the boundless continuity of the Infinite. It is this experience of transgression and expenditure that links eroticism intimately to the ultimate experience of infinite continuity, that of death: (SAY HELL AND ETERNAL SEPARATION FROM ALMIGHTY GOD IN TIME AND ETERNITY)
Eroticism . . . is assenting to life up to the point of death. . . . Although erotic activity is … an exuberance of life, the object of this psychological quest . . . is not alien to death.
Erotic activity, by dissolving the separate beings that participate in it, reveals their fundamental continuity, like the waves of a stormy sea.73
Crowley found (Bunting and Andras finds) liberating transgression not just “in the absence of God,” but rather in his own attempt to destroy God and usher in a new era of history. Quite self-consciously overthrowing the restraints of the Victorian Christian world in which he was raised, Crowley made it his mission to shatter the boundaries of conventional morality in order to liberate the supreme freedom of the self. Thus, “The qualities which have made a man, a race, a city, a caste, must be thrown off. . . . All moral codes are worthless in themselves.”74
BUNTINGS SPIRITUALITY AND WHAT HE IS BRINGING INTO THE SHELTON FAMILY AND THEIR CHILDREN THANKS TO KAREN SUE ANDRAS
The (Bill Bunting and Karen Sue Andras’s) true magus is therefore encouraged to seek out the most disgusting, repugnant, and impure sorts of partners for his sexual rites. Indeed, “the supreme masters of the world seek ever the vilest and most horrible creatures for their concubines, overstepping even the limited laws of sex and species in their necessity to transcend normality”75 And, in turn, his sexual partners are to take a vow that demanded the explicit violation of all moral boundaries that confine ordinary beings, embracing the role of the wicked, adulterous Whore of Babalon herself:
I will work the work of wickedness
I will kill my heart
I will be loud and adulterous
I will be covered with jewels and rich garments.
I will be shameless before all men
I will, for token thereof, freely prostitute my body to the lusts of each and every living creature that shall desire it
I claim the Mystery of Mysteries, BABALON the Great, and the Number 156, and the robe of the Woman of Whoredomes and the Cup of Abominations.76
As we have seen above, many of Crowley’s (And Andras and Buntings) higher-level rituals centered around acts that were considered extremely transgressive by Victorian moral standards. Sodomy and masturbation were foremost among the acts considered both physically and morally dangerous in Victorian society, and they would therefore become among the most powerful tools in Crowley’s magical practice. The original preface to his The World’s Tragedy was in fact subtitled “Sodomy,” in which he vowed “to fight openly for that which no living Englishman dared defend, even in secret—sodomy!”77
CROWLEY AND BUNTING AND ANDRAS EATING HUMAN FECES TOGETHER
Crowley would go to even further extremes of transgression (As does Bunting and Andras now) during his years at the Abbey of Thelema. In his diaries, he claims to have transcended all material distinctions, shattering the boundary between pure and impure, such that even the most defiling substances—including human excrement— became for him the pure Body of God. Thus the shit of his Scarlet Woman, Leah Hirsig, became the “Thelemic Host” in his Gnostic Mass:
Bunting identifies with this because he partakes of this with “Karen Sue” and SATAN ….
“My mouth burned; my throat choked, my belly wretched; my blood fled wither who knows. . . . She stood above in hideous contempt. . . . She ate all the body of God and with Her soul’s compulsion made me eat. . . . My teeth grew rotten, my tongue ulcered, raw was my throat, spasm-torn my belly, and all my Doubt of that which to Her teeth was moonlight and to her tongue ambrosia; to her throat nectar, in her belly the One God.81
Crowely by Ouija Board comes to Bunting where he is shown that filthy attribute of eating feces by Crowley personally and which Bunting enjoys personally!
DEMONIC POSSESSION OF BUNTING AND ANDRAS THROUGH SODOMY/ANAL SEX/INTERCOURSE
Crowley’s The XIth degree of Crowley’s Gnostic Mass and (which Bunting and Andras “bath in”) is the mostly homosexual degree, one identifies oneself …. with the blood (or excrement) from anal intercourse attracting the spirits/demons …..45
CHILD SACRIFICE BY CROWLEY AND THOSE DEMONS IN HIM AND WILL BE IF NOT ALREADY IN BUNTING
Lastly… Being Bunting LOVES Crowley…it is paramount to know that THIS is what Bunting is bringing with him into the Shelton family and the children of thanks to “Karen Sue” FB AKA Karen Sue Andras…
Crowley engaged in a variety of rites intended to achieve the goals of “invoking the gods Jupiter and Mercury” and “getting these gods to supply Crowley and Neuberg with money.” In the course of the operations, Crowley became possessed by an evil spirit posing as the god Mercury.
This being informed them that the ultimate act of magic would require the “rape, ritual murder and dissection of the body of a young girl.” (Francis King, The Magical World ofAleister Crowley (London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1977,
One last summary of Crowley and which applies to Bunting is this…”he also makes the most deviant and anti-social of sexual acts — namely, masturbation, oral consumption of sexual fluids and homosexual intercourse– the ultimate keys to magical power. In other words, he set out to usher in his own new Aeon by smashing and tearing down the entire social-moral structure of the world in which he was raised. 
Evidently Bunting is going to be a viable contributor and addition to all that is shared about in Andras’s family and now everyone should know more then ever…WHY GOD REMOVED HER FROM MY LIFE!
FOREWORD: As a result of “playing with the OUIJA BORARD as a child, my “wife” was attacked by and possessed by a demon Aleister Crowley. She then became a New Age Witch…delved into the OCCULT and partook of the sexual darkness connected to this particular DEMON who’s filthy murderous heart’s desire was to be a high ranking “general” for Satan himself. She continues to reject Jesus and live in the sins inspired by this demon who she loves in and through those thoughts and desires which “possess her” in all things.
OUIJA BOARDS: PORTALS LEADING TO PERDITION, Part II of SAY NO, NO to OUIJA.
OUIJA BOARDS: PORTALS LEADING TO PERDITION
This film plays on the angst and sorrowful frustration of these teenagers who were stunned and mystified by the apparent suicide of their dear friend, Debbie; particularly her best friend, Laine who desired just such an encounter with their dearly departed.
Below is a plot summary of the film itself:
Everything is set in motion when two little girls play a Ouija board (just for fun) with the ground rules being: 1) Never play alone 2) Never play in a grave yard and 3) Always say ‘Goodbye’ before ending the game. This source of ‘entertainment’ established an emotional bond between the two girls and later, one of them finds an antique board in the attic of her old house: the teenage golden girl Debbie (Shelley Hennig) makes the cardinal mistake of playing it alone (and unbeknownst to her, is doing it in a ‘grave yard’ as there is a corpse hidden in a secret room in the basement. She not surprisingly winds up dead shortly thereafter, an apparent suicide, and her grieving friends decide to attempt to contact her in the (so called) ‘time-honored tradition’.
The group, led by the intrepid Laine (Olivia Cooke), seems to hit pay dirt at first, getting in contact with a spirit calling itself “DZ” which moves the planchette under the fingers of all the teens gathered and spells out “HI FRIEND”. But afterward things become spookier when each receives the same message, in various forms: one on his bicycle going down a darkened tunnel hears the tapping and scratching of chalk on stone wall; another sees these words on a car window covered in dew (and then a claw like hand smacks the window from inside the vehicle); another sees those words scratched into the top of his wooden desk and then last of the four friends sees it on a flashing computer screen. And the spirit soon turns murderous, dispatching it’s victims in gruesome ways like levitating one of the girls into the air and then send her headlong crashing against the bathroom sink, killing her on impact; another being pushed into a swimming pool by invisible forces and drowns: floundering helplessly in the pool cover; another seems simply taken over by the spirit and his heart stops.
Laine’s search for answers leads her to a former resident of Debbie’s home, Paulina (Lin Shaye) now confined in a forbidding mental institution. The elderly woman informs her that the spirit she and her friends contacted was not in fact Debbie, but rather her own little sister, Doris Zander (DZ) who was used by their mother, a practicing medium as a conduit by which she was able to communicate with the dead and herself a victim of possession by evil spirits.
The solution to this demonic dilemma as portrayed in this film is hardly viable as we shall see.
“Do not go seeking answers from the dead,” warns Laine’s grandmother at one point in the film. That advice naturally goes unheeded by the reckless teens. (This summary is largely based on the review from: The HOLLYWOOD Reporter).
There were quite a few paranormal and ‘spooky’ films in the previews prior to the feature film, and many, many more to come as one scans the Internet; a movie released a little over a year ago was just such fare (as can be expected the rest of this year and next) called The Lords of Salem
What struck me about this film was not the situation of such fearful circumstances – the ‘real deal’ is of course far, far scarier than any Hollywood production could ever hope to capture (though the film, The Exorcist did come rather close) but the supposed solution to end the rampage of the vengeful spirits. What Laine was counseled to do by her grandmother was to take both the board and the decrepit body of the long deceased little girl Doris (found in a secret room in the basement of Debbie’s house) and burn both of them together in order to “break the connection” to the evil spirits (which she eventually succeeds (apparently) in doing, with the help of Debbie’s apparition that appears at the end of the film to lend aid in sending the malevolent Doris back to where she belongs along with the host of demonic spirits that control her).
There was absolutely no sign of a Bible, or the mention or pleading for help from God, not even the typical Roman Catholic priest with some ‘holy water’ – nothing of the kind was seen any where in this film. To solve the problem of these invading, violent spirits, the girls (Laine and her younger sister Sarah) had to take matters into their own hands. In a vain attempt to learn more about the demons, the board was further used as a means to obtain such information and possibly end the cycle of death.
On the outside this might seem like a rational solution to the common person; just as you would use a key to open a door, that same key must be used to lock it again – but in the spiritual domain such thinking is an abject disaster!
Not only was the board used to explore these forbidden realms, but the planchette (the somewhat triangular shaped device with a circular crystal in the middle that’s moved by the spirits to spell words out on the board) is held up to the eye by Laine and then she can see into ‘the other side’. The imagery of her eye looking through the round crystal of the planchette was not wasted on me: the stark resemblance of the All Seeing Eye and Pyramid was unmistakeable. That is another image (as well as Ouija boards appearing on backpacks, clothing and candy tins) that is being proliferated every where we see. The Eye over the Pyramid is an ancient symbol used by the Illuminati as well as the Gnostics before them, and even older esoteric societies founded in antiquity.
This is a recurring theme in today’s culture, and such images are printed upon clothes, back packs, even candy tins are not without purpose. It seems that those of the secret/esoteric orders and societies are quite motivated to seeing the populace accustomed to such things as our culture is nudged deeper into occult theologies found not only in schools, social networks of various kinds, the entertainment industry in films and music but even in our churches!
The actual solution to ‘breaking connection’ with demonic spirits will be examined momentarily; if any one who has read this article and the links contained therein have experimented with the spirit board known as the Ouija, or other occult forms of divination and believe that they may have obtained demonic influences over themselves or others that they know, please understand that there is freedom from Satan’s oppression and possession! You can in fact be freed from such enslavement.
Previously in the first article (Say NO, NO To OUIJA) we examined why any such communication with the supposed dead is forbidden by the LORD God; precisely because the departed souls of this world are no longer here in this world, nor can there be any contact between the living and the dead, but are confined to that place of waiting (Hades) until the judgment and any such communication is actually between the living and demonic spirits merely masquerading as the dearly departed:
5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
(See also: 2 COR. 11:14; LUKE 16:24; DEUT. 18:11)
It is believed in various pagan cultures that the time of Samhain (what we know today as Halloween) is the time of year in which “the veil between the living and the dead” is at its thinnest. Halloween may be a time of trick or treats for children who love to dress up in costume and ‘haunt’ from house to house in search of candy and other treats, but it is also a time of darkness, and a day recognized by many belief systems as one of the most spiritual times (read that demonic) of the year.
This is probably why Ouija boards are enjoying higher sales this time of year and why so many embark in the ‘exciting and adventurous’ experience of participating in seances, tarot cards and spirit boards. Here is an article from the blog by Belle Ringer, SALVATION and SURVIVAL entitledThe FRIGHTENING MIX OF HALLOWEEN, OUIJA and the SOULS of the DEAD.
Also a radio interview from SAID ministry (Saints Abounding In Decernment) with Michael Anthony Rene Chavez and Sergio Martinez who interview Greg Reid*, a born again Christian pastor, expert speaker and author on the occult and spiritual warfare about The DANGERS of HALLOWEEN, SATANISM and the OCCULT.
*We asked for some input by Greg Reid in part I of this article regarding the Ouija board as well as some general questions regarding demonic activity.
It is for the reasons outlined above in the article and interview both of which underscore the biblical commands to have nothing to do with the spiritual darkness that we expressly admonish all Christians to abstain from being involved, even in the so-called more ‘innocent’ aspects of Halloween, and everything that has come to be associated with it.
In the OUIJA film, a slogan used in previews and advertisement is “Keep telling yourself that its just a game”. Obviously this lends to the suggestion that this board is anything but a game, and this suggestion is absolutely correct! We covered in the first article that the Ouija, a spirit board, has been a tool of the occult for thousands of years in many different cultures and has been banned by some countries when their dangers became known! While it’s packaged as a game (formerly by Parker Bros and now Hasbro) and chances are that the majority of those who ‘play the game’ may do so with no obvious and immediate ill effects (not to suggest that there aren’t significant long term effects that are highly detrimental to the soul), however there are those who will experience such and discover to their dismay that demonic and Satanic forces are all too real. And malevolent!
Skeptics might say that if such spiritual forces are real then why don’t demons possess and, or attack us humans on a regular basis? Why are they so secretive and covert*, engaging themselves in some supposed guerrilla warfare? There are many that scoff at the idea of the Ouija (and things in general regarding the occult) being demonically empowered, and those who engage in such things are in spiritual danger. Many believe that the subconscious mind is the prime motivator of these things and ridicule the notion of “the devil made me do it”. Such ideas have been expressed by people who wrote comments about the Ouija film; here is one such comment for your perusal.
I’m persuaded that Satan’s hatred of the human race is so volatile and intense that if he could, he would destroy us all, but its quite reasonable to assume that the LORD God has established His drawn lines around the human race (such as He has done for Job; see JOB 1:10) for our protection, but these barriers may be broken if we participate in ‘gateways’ or channels by which we might breach those protections to reach into spiritual darkness – such as involvement in the occult (even simply reading palms, getting one’s fortune read, tarot cards, horoscopes, and other seemingly harmless activities); which is why the Bible warns against such things!
*Such covert activity is more common in our Western culture, however if you visit the Far East or in substantial tribal societies in Africa or South America where blatant spiritual activity is witnessed on a regular basis and the dire hopelessness of people there that are enslaved to the demonic, you will have a far greater perspective on the reality of these things!
From the web site BIBLE KNOWLEDGE we have the following article: DANGERS of the OUIJA BOARD:
“For those of you who want to see just how dangerous and deadly this occult device really is, I would highly recommend that you read this book: “The Ouija Board – A Doorway to the Occult” by Edmond C. Gruss.
In this book are real, live, documented cases of people who literally drew in evil demonic spirits in their lives as a result of engaging with the Ouija board – and in many of these cases, these demons actually entered into the person’s body.
This device is so deadly and dangerous, that even many mediums will not try and dabble with it. Mediums are those people who will try and contact the dead for the people who want to make contact with them. They conduct what are called basic seances.
The Bible tells us that we are not allowed to communicate with the dead and that if we try and do it, God will set His face against us.
Also from the: EVANGELICAL OUTREACH web site:
“Some critics contend that such contact is inherently dangerous, and that any beings who communicate through such a device are likely to be demonic and attempt to possess the user …. The entity Seth, popularized by the writings of Jane Roberts in the 1960s and 1970s, initiated his communication with Roberts through a Ouija board. The communication then rapidly progressed to direct automatic writing with a pen and then into a trance mediumship in which Seth allegedly used Roberts’ vocal cords to speak.
The Ouija also served as the initial means of communication with alleged spirits of the dead in 1913 for Pearl Curran (see WORTH, PATIENCE), and in 1919 for Stewart Edward White and his wife, Betty. The Whites spent 17 years studying Betty’s mediumship with a group of discarnate beings who called themselves “the Invisibles.” After initial contact was made through the Ouija, Betty began using automatic writing and then trance mediumship, in which the spirits allegedly used her own vocal cords.(4)”
Further, the well renowned film, The Exorcist was based on a novel by William Blatty of the same title and based on a true life case study, which you can read about on wikipedia at the followinglink, The Exorcism of Roland Doe. (Note: this link is provided for the purpose of documentation regarding the use of the Ouija which resulted in potential spiritual and demonic activity and we at TTUF do not necessarily agree with claims made by various psychiatrists, sociologists and Roman Catholic priests)
Some who would dread using a Ouija board and contact the dead or demons might find another spirit board more to their liking; would you believe that they have ‘Angel Boards’ now? I don’t know of any verse in the Bible where an angel used any device, much less a board that even remotely resembled a spirit board. Regardless, the beings contacted by the Ouija are actually angels . . . of the fallen sort, that followed Satan in his rebellion against God! So it really makes no difference at all what the board is called, does it?
My great concern for people, Christians and non-Christians alike, is that after seeing this film (and if you are a Christian, why are you seeking films like this for entertainment?!) their curiosity might be aroused, and they will venture to ‘play the game’ and perhaps open a door that they will not be able to close, or use such lame techniques as demonstrated in the film in an attempt to rid themselves of unwanted demonic attention. I would admonish any who are reading this article to stay away from the Ouija board, and any other form of occult devices, books, films, etc. Again, not everyone who engages is such things will encounter or become influenced by demonic spirits, but its a spiritual form of ‘Russian Roulette’ and so, why take a chance?
If you are not yet persuaded that the Ouija is dangerous or at the very least something that you should leave well enough alone, perhaps this article will prove worthy of your read; this is written by Marcia Montenegro, a former astrologer who is now a Christian and an impeccable researcher: (Please take note of the accompanying links found in the gray box under the image of the Ouija board and consider reading these as well!)
Now for those of you who have already engaged in the occult, and have, to your dismay discovered that you have been invaded by a malevolent mind of otherworldly domain and to your horror found out yourself that demons (and Satan) are all too real:
The Bible speaks of Satan a.k.a. The Devil in terms that expresses him as an actual person (not a force or a ‘collective conscience’ of the cumulative evil of man’s own making), but an angelic being that has fallen from his holy station in heaven, and has become the chief adversary of mankind, seeking our destruction and attempting to ruin human souls chances of finding redemption in the LORD Jesus Christ.
The Bible is indeed the Word of God, the Word of Truth and its teachings are entirely reliable; one of the primary methods of determining this is what is known as prophecy – the plan of God outlined in advance, describing future events in detail before they occur. There are many web sites that are dedicated to apologetics (defending the faith and support of the Bible as the very Word of God) and lots of pages from these sites such as these from C.A.R.M. (Christian Apologetics and Research ministry) http://www.carm.org
PROPHECY, The BIBLE and JESUS
Jesus Christ is the Word Incarnate, that is God made flesh; He came into this sinful world to declare to us God’s Word, to preach the Gospel and ultimately to die for the sins of mankind; He resurrected from the dead, having paid the penalty for sin that was our debt owed to the holy God, and has established the Kingdom for us to enter into as citizens and children of God, by means of the spiritual new birth (JOHN 3:3-5).
Here is a video by Ray Comfort of Living Waters ministry http://www.livingwaters.com/ as he explains to his interviewee, Kevin all about the Gospel:
The power of Jesus Christ is well able to “break the connection” not only to demonic spirits but from the even deadlier power of sin; consider this – sin is such a powerful force of evil that it took no one less than God the Son, to come here in flesh and blood to vanquish it! You and I are powerless to defeat sin or demons for that matter. There is NOTHING we can do to help ourselves or others. Its only through Jesus Christ that we find deliverance from evil.
He is LORD over all the power of the enemy:
33 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,
34 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.
35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.
He is the Savior of all the world:
1 JOHN 2:1-2
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation [satisfactory payment] for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
He is the only Way to heaven where the Father dwells:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
There is coming a day when all the world will be judged by Jesus Christ (JOHN 5:26-27) which includes the angelic race as much as the human race; this means that one day Satan will be judged and sentenced to gehenna (hell, the lake of fire) as its chiefest prisoner; hell was never nor ever will be the domain of Satan’s rule. All of the kingdom of darkness under Satan’s command will be sentenced there as well. Those who follow Satan’s lead either by engaging in occult or Satanic practices, or simply attempting to gain entrance into heaven by any means other than through Jesus Christ (by religion, self effort, or any other way) will likewise be sentenced there, bearing the penalty for their own sin because they rejected Jesus Christ Who willingly bore our sins for us.
Instead of engaging the spirits from the Ouija, why not engage the Spirit of the LORD by opening up His Word and pray to Him, asking for Him to reveal the truth to you? If you are sincere and genuinely seek Him, the Bible promises you will find Him (JERE. 29:13)!
27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
If you find that you are in need and desire help either in understanding the Gospel or believe that you need deliverance from the power of Satan, please contact me via email: KNYHTF1RE@gmail.com
MAY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST LIGHT YOUR PATH TO HIM, AND MAY YOU FIND SALVATION, PEACE AND WHOLENESS THROUGH HIS ETERNAL GRACE!
SAY “NO, NO” To OUIJA
By James Fire
The word “Ouija” (pronounced ‘WEE yah’) is a contraction of two words, French and German (oui and ja), both meaning “yes” and no doubt referring to the planchette (the flat, heart-shaped device that’s used to indicate letters and numbers on the Ouija board; see image to the left) providing answers by spelling them out or by indicating the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ printed on the board.
Certainly the producers of the upcoming film OUIJA, directed by Stiles White and starring Olivia Cooke, Ana Coto, and Daren Kagasoff are hoping for some positive answers by way of ticket sales, when movie goers line up to see a story about “A group of friends must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board.”
OUIJA movie synopsis.
According to Wikipedia, the Ouija board by name has been around since the late 19th century. Such devices were originally called spirit boards; a form of divination, like crystal balls, tarot cards and similar devices used to divine or foretell the future or any kind of unknown knowledge or information.
Early accounts show the use of such spirit boards as early as 1100 AD in “…China in historical [such] documents [as] the Song Dynasty. The method was known as fuji, “planchette writing”. The use of planchette writing as an ostensible means of contacting the dead [necromancy] and the spirit-world continued, and, albeit under special rituals and supervisions, was a central practice of the Quanzhen School, until it was forbidden by the Qing Dynasty. Several entire scriptures of the Daozang are supposedly works of automatic planchette writing. Similar methods of mediumistic spirit writing have been widely practiced in ancient India, Greece, Rome, and medieval Europe.”
The Ouija was produced commercially as a ‘parlor game’ in 1901by William Fuld (who later sold the rights to the board to Parker Bros, who in turn sold it to Hasbro in 1991 who still holds all the patents and trademarks) and experienced an enthusiastic and wide following between 1920-1960 in America.
According to the scientific community the results of such paranormal experiences from using the Ouija can be explained in purely physical and psychological terms:
“The Ouija phenomenon has been criticized by many scientists as a hoax related to the ideomotor response. Various studies have been produced, recreating the effects of the Ouija board in the lab and showing that, under laboratory conditions, the subjects were moving the planchette involuntarily. Skeptics have described Ouija board users as ‘operators’. Some critics noted that the messages ostensibly spelled out by spirits were similar to whatever was going through the minds of the subjects. According to Professor of neurology Terence Hines in his book Pseudoscience and the Paranormal (2003):
‘The planchette is guided by unconscious muscular exertions like those responsible for table movement. Nonetheless, in both cases, the illusion that the object (table or planchette) is moving under its own control is often extremely powerful and sufficient to convince many people that spirits are truly at work… The unconscious muscle movements responsible for the moving tables and Ouija board phenomena seen at seances are examples of a class of phenomena due to what psychologists call a dissociative state. A dissociative state is one in which consciousness is somehow divided or cut off from some aspects of the individual’s normal cognitive, motor, or sensory functions’.”

There are Christians who have had experiences while practicing the occult prior to their conversion to Christ; whether one is talking about New Age or Hindu mysticism like Warren Smith, or psychic healing like Johanna Michealson or Satanic/occult power as in Greg Reid’s case, its all derivative of the same source – that is, Satan and his kingdom of darkness.
I asked Dr. Greg Reid for his own view on the so-called scientific explanation of the Ouija board and occult power, and this is what he had to say on the matter:
“First, I had to chuckle at the ‘scientific’ evidence that shows people move the Ouija board with their minds. Talk about voodoo science. So they don’t believe in spirits or demons, but somehow we are supposed to believe that some weird unproven kinetic mind power does it? From the same folks that brought you unproven Darwinian ideas…
“It really comes down to fear, and the God equation. Fear, because if you acknowledge something ‘Other’ is working the board, then you will fear because it means there is a hidden dimension in which demons dwell…
“…the God equation because if you acknowledge that that world is real, then you have to consider the possibility that the Bible might actually represent God’s word and opinion on these things, which means either rebel or obey…right?
“Personally, of course, I found these scientific tests completely invalid, precisely because one of the principles of science is visual, verifiable evidence…and I have experienced both. When first introduced to the Ouija, we asked it about when our grandmother would come to visit, and it said “tomorrow night.” Impossible, she lived a state away! The next day, our neighbor, unbeknownst to us, had been on a business trip and decided to bring her to us as a surprise. Not one of us knew about it, so from what part of our mind did we get this if we supposedly were doing this with our own subconscious? Pretty obvious that something else was at work.
“I quickly became adept at playing it solo, and found a “spirit guide” (or it found me) through it. When I received Jesus, I played it one more time, and watched as it spelled out ‘Satan’ when I asked who was behind the board, and then watched it fly off the board onto the carpet landing upside down.
“All that communication was completely independent of my own ‘powers’ or ‘brain thoughts’. I know now that it was in fact familiar spirits which always look for opportunities to demonize unsuspecting people who play the thing thinking it is just a game.
The Exorcist was true, except it was a boy, and he played a Ouija board and thus got taken over.
“Even people in the new age, the occult, spiritualism and even Wicca will tell you that it is a dangerous thing not to be played with. How come they end up being smarter than a lot of Christians who think it’s a game, or worse, play it?”
“Q #1: Is the Ouija board actually the devil speaking to you?”
G.R. Answers: I think the devil is too busy to make an appearance at every Ouija board gathering. However, make no mistake about it – if you play it, and something responds, it is not God. It is a demon – what the Bible calls a “familiar spirit”* – whose purpose is to gain entrance in your life through your own curiosity, in the hopes of being able to take over your body. Remember the Exorcist? It was based on a true exorcism in the Catholic church, except that it was a boy and not a girl, who became possessed because of playing the Ouija board.”
* LEV. 19:31; DEUT. 18:11; 1 SAM 28:3; 2 KINGS 23:24; ISAIAH 8:19 and other passages.
“Q #2: How powerful can a Ouija board be?”
When my sister was about 17 or 18 she spent the night with a group of girls in a little cabin near one of the girl’s home on their fishing boat. I remember her telling they played with a Ouija board and saying they had gotten really scared. I don’t remember exactly what they were doing with it. I have wondered if she might have had some spirit go into her that may have caused her to be so extremely ill with the Rheumatoid Arthritis. She has had doctors tell her they have never seen anyone so bad. I realize people get sick with things often, but I also feel unconfessed sin or unawareness of something we have done can keep us from being healed. What do you think?
G.R. Answers: The problem with playing the devil’s games – whether one knows it is wrong or not – is that the consequences can be severe, and they also can be unpredictable. I have talked to plenty of people who have played the Ouija once without dire consequences – and even more who have suffered in their spirit, marriages or families, finances or health as a result. I don’t claim to know why some suffer more and some seemingly very little. But it is a Russian Roulette in any event, and I wouldn’t rule out that your sister’s condition may in fact be connected somehow to that incident. I hope she can come to realize how dangerous what she did was and make a full confession of it, receive cleansing and deliverance, and hopefully, healing. I will be praying for her.”
“Q #3: I don’t believe in demons and I’m a Christian. What’s wrong with that?”
G.R. Answers: Well, you have to throw out several passages from the Gospels and the Book of Acts as well as dozens of references to the demonic and the devil in the New Testament in order to form that conclusion. In which case, you might as well throw out the rest of the Bible and stop deluding yourself into thinking you are really a Christian.”
NOTE to READER: Secular sources such as psychiatry and biology will assert that what looks like demon possession is merely a psychological illness such as schizophrenia or biologically speaking a chemical imbalance (typically in the brain); yet if one believes and understands that the Bible is the very Word of God, and the source of His truth for us, then one must make the distinction between physical sicknesses, and abnormalities of the mind with demonic possession.
Consider the following passage:
And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
The LORD healed all that were sick with various diseases and afflictions, those who were lunatic and had the palsy; among these however there is the distinction of healing those who were possessed of demons (“devils”). This is a spiritual affliction caused by a non-corporeal entity of evil and not a psychological or physiological problem and must be dealt with spiritually, by the Spirit of God, just as our LORD demonstrated.
The word “lunatick” is translated from the Greek word seleniazomai and refers to one who suffers epileptic seizures; those who suffered “palsy” were those that suffered from any form of paralytic ailments as a result of non-responsive or damaged nerve tissues.
People who suffer from any form of derangement are not able to perceive things beyond the normal five senses, yet those that we see in Scriptures as possessed of demonic spirits are capable of preternatural discernment; they knew who Jesus really was on sight (LUKE 4:33-35; MATT. 8:28-29; MARK 5:7), they are supernaturally strong (MARK 5:1-4); prone to isolation and self-destructive behavior (MARK 5:5); they are aware of their eventual fate as being eternal torment in Gehenna (MARK 5:7; MATT. 8:29); and have conscious personality and identity (MARK 5:9).
For a comprehensive examination concerning demons see the following notes from Dr. Scofield.
The Bible has much to say about divination, necromancy (communication with the dead, known later as being a ‘medium’ and today as ‘channeling’), witchcraft and practices commonly categorized as occult:
1 SAMUEL 15:23
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord . . .
Note that in the above verse, witchcraft is seen as a sin, and the LORD equates rebellion and stubbornness against His will, which we have recorded in Scripture as something that’s just as evil. If the Word of God tells us to stay away from such occult practices, even a ‘harmless’ reading of your horoscope or getting your palm read at a local carnival ‘just for fun’, then we are to stay away from them!
9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lordthy God doth drive them out from before thee.
13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.
14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
There are some who might object to communicating with the dead as being demonic or evil or wrong because of their personal experiences. In a hypothetical situation, being grieved at the death of a loved one, a seeker might want one last conversation with them and find a channeler to make contact with them. They are seeking their loved one, not a demonic spirit. Perhaps a teen age boy is wanting to contact his deceased Uncle Robby who used to take him out fishing all the time and developed a very close relationship with him, even calling him a secret pet name that only the two of them knew.
Contact is established and the form before the boy is that of Uncle Robby – he looks like him, sounds like him, acts like him. Yet to be sure it really is him and not some parlor trick, the boy asks the spirit what was his secret pet name, and the spirit provides the answer!
No one else knew that name but he and the boy! It must be Uncle Robby right? Wrong!
We don’t see the spiritual realm around us, but there are angels and demons all about us working for the respective kingdoms of God and Satan. Demonic spirits can appear as anything they wish (2 COR. 11:14): deceased loved ones, or space aliens, or gods of the ancient pantheon, or anything else that would deceive and seduce people into believing lies instead of the truth. Certainly, when Uncle Robby spoke his pet name to his nephew, there would have been demons about, eavesdropping on the conversation, and could easily relate that name at the seance the boy initiated some time after the demise of his uncle.
The dead are actually forbidden to have anything to do with the living as demonstrated by Lazarus and the rich man, after they died in LUKE 16:19-31. The one possible exception may have been 1 SAM. 28:7-20, but considering the preponderance of Scripture that strictly forbids communicating with the dead, this incident with King Saul and the witch of Endor would be the only exception.
There was a time when the LORD opened the eyes of a servant of Elisha to perceive the spiritual realm that he couldn’t see previously (2 KINGS 6:15-17); the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam to see an angel wielding a sword in the path that he rode upon (NUM. 22:31).
There is a rank and file of demonic spirits ‘generals’ as well as ‘foot soldiers’ listed in EPHESIANS 6:12that work the will of Satan on this earth. They as well as Satan himself are not currently residing in hell as is depicted in Milton’s and Dante’s works; they are very much about this world and seeking to draw as many as possible into perdition and destruction (JOB 1:7)
2 KINGS 17:16-18
16 And they left all the commandments of the Lord their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal.
17 And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.
18 Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only.
Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
Some might equate the works of God’s prophets with psychics and other visionaries such as Edgar Cayce and William Branham – but according to the above verse, these prophets are false, and not answering by the Spirit of God but through false visions and the forbidden practice of divination with the intent to deceive!
16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.
19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.
20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.
The Gospel was preached in Ephesus by Paul and his co-laborers and many people repented and turned to the LORD for salvation. As a demonstration of their turning away from their old ways, they brought their books on “curious* arts” and had them burned.
* The Greek word used for “curious” implies something meddlesome, and knowledge attained by study, and refers to the use of magic.
1 TIMOTHY 4:1
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
(See also: NUM 22:7; LEV. 19:31; 20:6; 1 SAM. 6:2; JER. 27:9; ZECH. 10:2; MATT. 7:22; ACTS 8:11; 13:6; 2 THESS. 2:3-12; REV. 13:13-18).
We are living in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ, and as is mentioned above and abundantly in the Scriptures, (see references in 2 Thessalonians and Revelation above) one of the leading indicators and phenomenon of these days is spiritual deception (MATT. 24:4,5,11,24) and the rise of occult beliefs, doctrines and activities.
Author and noted speaker Dave Hunt wrote a book called The OCCULT INVASION where he documents the alarming increase in occultic and esoteric activities not only in the world in general, but even in churches across the world!
See the short clip where Dave Hunt and T.A. McMahon discuss this subject (you can click on the 2nd clip on youtube on the side bar):
Will a person become demon possessed if they go see this film OUIJA? Or using a Ouja board? Not necessarily, but it can and in many cases likely will open a door out of a sense of curiosity and lead to further involvement into occult books and materials. Satan is a patient predator, and will bide his time in slowly, but surely leading a spiritual seeker into darkness (he did with me, prior to becoming a Christian!) and thus bring them into terrible oppression and bondage.
We would strongly advise parents to supervise the films seen by their children, to use such Scripture and materials to show the very real danger of the occult, and teach them why Christians should never get involved in such things . . . even something as seemingly harmless as a movie.
LORD willing, I will attend a viewing of this film and address the issues and situations portrayed there from a biblical perspective. This will be a movie review and a Part II of this article. Your prayers for this endeavor are deeply appreciated. Until then, whether you are talking about the occult, or just simply sin, always say “No, No” and never “Oui, ja” or yes for that matter!
UPDATE: Here is the article based on my viewing of the film: OUIJA: PORTALS LEADING To PERDITION (PART TWO Of the article, SAY NO, NO To OUIJA).
