Secret Languages, Communicating Symbols, & Other Occult Worlds, Pt. 3

    The first blog of this series dealt with the limitations of occult rituals and beliefs as bound to the natural world, as contrasted to Christianity as looking to Almighty God, The Invisible Creator of all the Universe.

These occult practices include adherence to psychic and physical imagery, sensual emotions and scopes of idolatrous vision.  Just as occult worlds hold onto earth-bound ‘roots,’ they also rely on material realities––especially those facets of life encountered through visible eyes, as if encountering all relevant realities.

Thus, the word idol can be reduced to a concept of ‘eye doll.’  In other words, when one prefers, even fondles, that world seen only with vision through physical eyes, one’s frame of worship is limited only to visions before the eyes.

Such limited ‘vision’ has been recognized for thousands of years as idolatry, or idol worship of a composite spiritual world entered into and comprehendible through material objects.  Such idolatrous worship is a direct violation of The Bible’s Second Commandment in Exodus Chapter 20.

“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I The LORD Thy God Am A Jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.”

Obviously, a doll is an image––graven, carved or fashioned––usually of a human being, but in a deeper realm, it is much more.  Even Wikipedia goes beyond the assumed definition of a ‘doll’ as “a model of a human being, often used as a toy for children.”  However, it continues:  “Dolls have traditionally been used in magic and religious rituals throughout the world, and traditional dolls made of materials like clay and wood are found in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe.

“The earliest documented dolls go back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Rome. Dolls being used as toys was documented in Greece around 100AD.  Traditional dolls are sometimes used as children’s playthings, but they may also have spiritual, magical and ritual value. There is no defined line between spiritual dolls and toys.”

True faith in God is a spiritual occurrence, based on simple and lasting acceptance of Jesus Christ into one’s life and soul, and walking in and learning from His Holy Word.  That experience is not aroused by physical, emotional or visual stimulation.  While one may enjoy a hymn or appreciate gifted choir singing, such activities are not necessary to authenticate one’s faith in God.

As we enter these last of the last of the last days of earthly existence, dual concepts of purity and danger must apply.  Stay pure in the teachings of God’s Word, and avoid dangerous ‘traditional’ snares of this evil and temporary world.
