*** (Isaiah 8:19-20) And when they shall say to you, Seek to the mediums and to wizards who peep and mutter; should NOT a people seek to their God, than for the living to the dead?
(Isa 8:20) To the Law and to the testimony! If they do NOT speak according to this Word, it is because NO light is in them.
*** (Deuteronomy 18:9-to-14) When you come to the land which the LORD Jehovah your God gives you, you shall NOT learn to do according to the Abominations of those nations.
(Deut 18:10) There shall NOT be found among you “ANYONE” who makes his son OR his daughter to pass through the fire, OR that uses divination, an observer of clouds, OR a fortune-teller, OR a witch,
(Deut 18:11) OR a charmer, OR a consulter with familiar spirits, OR a wizard, OR one who calls to the dead.
(Deut 18:12) For “ALL” that do these things are an “ABOMINATION” to the LROD Jehovah. And BECAUSE of these Abominations the LORD Jehovah your God: Drives them OUT from before you.
(Deut 18:13) You shall be “PERFECT” with the LORD Jehovah your God. (Matthew 5:48)
(Deut 18:14) For these nations whom you shall possess: listened to observers of clouds and to diviners. But as for you, the LORD Jehovah your God has NOT allowed you to do so.
*** (Titus 2:15) These are the things you should “SAY”. Encourage and Refute: with Full Authority. Do Not let anyone look down on you.
Please allow me to ASK…? How could “Anyone”: really believe that the Stars, Planets and Unseen Celestial bodies, have any effect on our ‘Lives’…? First of all, those of us who attended School, know some Science. All those ‘Heavenly Bodies’ are… “Light Years Away”…! HOW could their influence then be… “Instantaneous” on our Lives! What about…“Alpha Centauri”…? How far is it from Earth” Approximately: “4.2 Light Years AWAY!” That means the LIGHT from there, takes 4.2 years to travel to Earth! When we look at it through a Telescope: what we see is “Light” 4.2 years OLD! Astrology is that “False Science Religion” that claims INSTANEOUS powers transferred Immediately… beyond the realm of… “Reason, Logic & Mathematical Distances!” Just how SILLY does one need to be to Believe: “Such Garbage”…?
*** (Proverbs 14:15) The Simple [Foolish] believes every word; but the Wise man watches his step.
*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove “ALL” things; hold fast to the Good.
*** (Proverbs 16:18) Pride goes before destruction; and a haughty spirit before a fall.
*** (1Corinthians 14:38) But if any = is [willingly] ignorant, = let him = be [willingly] Ignorant.
*** (2Peter 1:16-17) For NOT having followed fables having been cunningly devised, but becoming eyewitnesses of the majesty of Jesus Christ, we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord.
(2Pet 1:17) For He [Jesus] received honor and glory from God the Father, when was borne to Him a voice from the excellent glory, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
*** (1Jn 4:1) Beloved, do NOT believe every spirit, but TRY the spirits to see if they are of God, because MANY: “False Prophets” have gone out into the world. (2Peter 2:1-2)

Have You ever seen a ‘Child’ being “Born”…? The Birthing of the child takes some time. As he or she starts down the Birth Canal, a normal birth presents the “Head First!” The complete exit of the child, may take some time. Question… “Does the Mother’s WOMB: Shield the Child from the “Planetary or Celestial”… SUPPOSED influences…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? “Astrological Influences” data, is based on a Childs birth TIME: and it charted in ‘15-minute’ increments. And NOT of the time of “Conception”, some 9 months earlier! Suppose the Child takes longer than 15-minutes to “Completed the Birth?” All this “Astrological Conjecture” is nothing more than… “PURE: Hog Wash!” It is almost as Silly as the… “Easter Bunny”, “Santa Clause” or the Cleveland Indians”…! … “Really”…! … “Silly Rabbit, TRIX are for Kids!”
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the natural man = does NOT receive the things of the “Spirit of God”, for they are = “FOOLISHNESS” = to him; Neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (2Corinthains 4:3-4) So if our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are dying.
(2Cor 4:4) In their case, the god of this world [Satan]; has blinded the minds of those who do not believe: to keep them from seeing the light of the glorious gospel of Christ; Who is the image of God.
*** (Titus 1:15-16) To the pure all things are pure. But to those who are “Defiled and Unbelieving” nothing is pure, but even their “Mind and Conscience” is Defiled.
(Tit 1:16) They profess that they know God; but in their works they Deny Him; being “Abominable”: and “Disobedient”: and “Reprobate”: to every good work.
*** (Romans 10:3-4) For they, being ‘Ignorant’ of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, have “NOT” submitted themselves to the righteousness of God.
(Rom 10:4) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness; to everyone who [truly] believes.
*** (Psalms 127:3) Lo, “Children” are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is His reward. [Psalms 98:2]

*** (Luke 16:13) No servant can serve TWO masters. For either he will Hate the one and Love the other, OR else he will Hold to the one and Despise the other. You CANNOT: serve God and mammon.
*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are of God; and “ALL” the world: lies in Evil.
(2Corinthains 6:14-to-18) Do Not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship does Righteousness have with Lawlessness? And what partnership does Light have with Darkness?
(2Cor 6:15) And what agreement does Christ have with Belial [Satan]? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?
(2Cor 6:16) And what agreement does a temple of God have with idols? For you are the temple of the living God, as God has said, "I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people."
(2Cor 6:17) Therefore come out from among them and be separated, says the Lord, and do not touch the unclean thing. And I will receive you
(2Cor 6:18) and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.
*** (Ephesians 1:3-t-14) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! He has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm,
(Eph 1:4) just as He [God] chose us in Him [Jesus] before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless in his presence. In love
(Eph 1:5) He predestined us for adoption to Himself through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure of His will,
(Eph 1:6) so that we would praise his glorious grace that He [God] gave us in the Beloved One [Jesus].
(Eph 1:7) In Him [Jesus] we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our offenses, according to the riches of God's grace
(Eph 1:8) that He lavished on us, along with ALL Wisdom and Understanding,
(Eph 1:9) when He made known to us the secret of his will. This was according to His plan that He set forth in Christ
(Eph 1:10) to usher in the fullness of the times and to gather up all things in Christ, both things in heaven and things on earth.
(Eph 1:11) In Christ we were also chosen when we were predestined according to the purpose of the One, Who does everything according to the intention of His will,
(Eph 1:12) so that we who had already fixed our hope on Christ might live for His praise and glory.

*** (2Corinthains 5:19-20-21) For in Christ God; was reconciling the world [any that would come] to Himself; by Not counting their sins against them through His forgiveness]; and He has committed to us; the message of reconciliation. [in Christ alone]
(2Co 5:20) Therefore, we are Christ's representatives; as though God were pleading through us [to You!]. We plead on Christ's behalf: “[You] Be reconciled to God!”
(2Co 5:21) God made the One [Jesus]; Who did not know sin; to be sin for us [Christ our Passover]; so that we might become God's righteousness in Him [Jesus].

*** (1Peter 1:13-to-23) Therefore girding up the loins of your mind, being sober, perfectly hope for the grace being brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
(1Pet 1:14) as obedient children, NOT fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance,
(1Pet 1:15) but according to the Holy One: Who has called you, you also become holy in all conduct,
(1Pe 1:16) because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy."
(1Pet 1:17) And if you call on the Father, Who without respect of persons judges according to the work of each one, pass the time of your earthly residence in fear, [Fear of God]
(1Pet 1:18) knowing that you were NOR redeemed with corruptible things, silver or gold, from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers,
(1Pet 1:19) but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot;
(1Pet 1:20) indeed having been foreknown before the foundation of the world, but revealed in the last times for you,
(1Pet 1:21) those believing in God through Him, He who raised Him up from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope might be in God.
(1Pet 1:22) Purifying your souls in the obedience of the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers, love one another fervently out of a pure heart,
(1Pet 1:23) having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the living Word of God, and abiding forever.
